Team Endpoint and their Irish representation have cashed in on a successful week for the organisation as their Rocket League and CS:GO teams secure vital qualification slots in their respective titles.
Earlier this week Endpoint’s Rocket League roster, featuring Ireland’s Nelson ‘virtuoso‘ Lasko, had a tough job ahead of them as they had to fight for their lives to keep their spot in the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) through the Promotion playoffs.
Things were not looking good for Endpoint as they started slow out of the gates, falling 4-0 in the first round of the double elimination bracket to French side Solary. With their backs against the wall and a lower-bracket run ahead of them, Virtuoso and his team found their form as they took down ex-Team SoloMid 4-2 to make it through to the lower-bracket final where they would face the Spanish line up, Stonkers.
After an extremely tight and hard fought match, Team Endpoint managed to take down the Spaniards with a 4-2 scoreline securing their spot in 10th edition of the RLCS next season and €25,000.
The good news for Endpoint did not end there however as their CS:GO team, coached by former Irish CS:GO player Ross ‘RossR‘ Rooney, played their final match of the ESEA Advanced Playoffs against Norwegian side, Team Apeks.
This would prove to be Endpoint’s second and final chance at qualification to ESEA’s premier division, Mountain Dew League having lost against Polish side Wisla Krakow one day prior.
Following another nail-biting series including a triple overtime, Endpoint managed to grind out the victory and secure their spot in ESEA MDL next season. Ross will be the first Irish representation in ESEA’s premier league since Dilans ‘lainNy‘ Feldmanis’s stint in the league 5 seasons ago with Smoke Criminals.
Congratulations to Team Endpoint on their successes this week and best of luck trying to build further on them.
