Soon all the top prospects from every division will have a chance to duke it out for a higher division slot in season thirty-five, as well as some of that sweet prize money.

However, we aren’t looking at what you might expect us to be looking at. Today we are going over this season's superlatives. Not just what player manages the highest ADR or most wins in their division. We’re looking at the unsung heroes of season thirty-four.

Before season thirty-four both players had a combined experience level of Intermediate. In terms of mechanical skill, neither player was ever in question. But many had their doubts about this inexperienced duo coming straight into Advanced. However, both players have performed very well this season and have helped lead their team to a winning record, with a shot at playoffs. The future looks bright for these young up and comers.
Voice of an Angel: CuZ1H
This man does not speak. He simply opens his mouth and pure gold comes out. CuZ has been stepping up his streaming game lately, going live several times during the week. If you want to watch a skilled player with the voice of an angel, definitely check this guy out on twitch.
Hungry for Success: NoVa
Dedicated to success and looking to make Advanced. Season thirty-four marks his fifth season playing in the division. Should his team win the last two games of the season, they should be a lock for playoffs. Is this the season he moves up? Only time will tell. But what we can already confirm, is his hunger for success.
Most Mid-season Growth: Brigada
You can observe this team growing week by week. They are hungry to play--and win or lose, they always manage to put up a good fight. Should they fall short in playoffs this season, I would put them as front-runners next season barring any major roster changes.
Most Potential: YeniCherry
Dedicated, well practiced, and always looking to grow. This squad has shown a lot of potential across their first two seasons. Should they continue to grind together and work to develop, this is a squad to keep your eyes on.
Biggest upset: Rise Esports Club
Rise Esports Club took down RBG Esports 16-13 in Advanced, after losing to them 2 weeks earlier 1-16 and 3-16 in Mythic League. This was a big statement and prideful moment for Rise.
Best Comeback : Big Chillin
Big Chillin was down 10-14 versus ImPerium Esports on T-side of train and put together 6 consecutive rounds to claw their way back to a 16-14 victory.
Best Roster Change: Kinship
Kinship hit the jackpot when Supernova disbanded. Wolffe being added to this Kinship roster really took them to another level that seems to make the push to MDL all the more plausible.
