Enigma6 to NA EPL, Foundation out

Enigma6, led by the former compLexity IGL Josh
“shinobi” Abastado, managed to secure ESL Pro League promotion
by beating The Foundation and Rush in the playoffs.

The core of the
Enigma6
lineup was on the brink of Pro League promotion
back in 2015, when they won ESEA Premier as Denial. However, a
last-minute rule change meant that instead of getting a direct
promotion, they were forced to play the relegation playoffs
where they ended up losing to
David “Xp3” Garrido
‘s
Winterfox
.

The team then split ways with pieces ending up in TSM and
compLexity, but was recreated in February of 2017, with

Collin “wrath” McSweegan
being the only
newcomer to the side.

Coming into the relegation playoffs,
Enigma6
first took on the side that was formerly
Selfless
, but is known as
The Foundation
after the organization decided to pull out
of CS:GO.
Josh “shinobi” Abastado
‘s side took a decisive
2-0 victory in that match, moving on to the upper-bracket
final.

In the deciding match, Enigma6
met the surprise of last year’s relegation,
Rush
. Right from the get-go, the 15-year old newcomer

wrath
was dominating his opposition, going 31-7 in
Enigma6
‘s 16-2 victory on Mirage. 


Rush
didn’t look like they had a way back into the series
as
Enigma6
‘s first map stomp was followed up by an 11-round CT
half on Cobblestone.
Shawn “witmer” Taylor
and co. closed out the
second map 16-11 in the end to secure a spot in ESL Pro League
Season 6.

Result

ESL Pro League Seaso..

In the lower part of the bracket,
Ghost
and
The Foundation
were supposed to fight for their lives, but
the latter team did not field a full roster and was relegated
to ESEA Premier with a default loss.
