ESL Pro League S15 Conference: Renegades, ORDER out means LookingForOrg will solely represent OCE at Pro League

ESL Pro League Season 15 Conference schedule, results, streams and more.

LookingForOrg will be the only Oceanic squad representing the region at ESL Pro League Season 15, after both Renegades and ORDER were eliminated from the EPL Conference.


  • RNG drop to Eternal Fire, ORDER downed against LDLC
  • Extra Salt, Movistar Riders & GODSENT qualify for Group Stage
  • LFO will fly the flag for OCE at Pro League in March 2022

Despite their best efforts, both Oceanic hopes were dashed at the ESL Pro League Conference, with both managing just one series win each.

ORDER kicked off the night with a win over RBG 2-0 (16-9, 19-17) — the organisation’s first international series win in over two years.

Veterans Ricardo “Rickeh” Mulholland (47-32, 83 ADR, 1.30 HLTV rating) and Karlo “USTILO” Pivac (49-39, 92 ADR, 1.29 HLTV rating) paved the path for ORDER’s victory, but it would prove to be short lived.

The squad failed to back up their earlier result in their series against French squad LDLC, going down 0-2 (6-16, 5-16) to be eliminated from the Conference.

“Although it wasn’t the way we wanted to go, there’s still a lot of positives coming out of this trip,” said Declan “Vexite” Portelli, who dazzled in his international debut.

“Regardless of the result, we’re still happy with the experience and results we’ve gotten by coming to Europe,” said teammate Matthew “Valiance” Hartrick.

“[We] still have a few more days of practice here, so we’ll make the most of it.”

It was a similar result for Renegades, who struggled on their T side against Turkish squad Eternal Fire in their elimination match.

RNG managed just 19 T rounds in their series losses to Extra Salt and Eternal Fire, with the Turks proving too strong, defeating the OCE champions 2-0 (16-11, 16-8).

“It was a disappointing couple of events to end the year,” remarked Joshua “INS” Potter following their Conference elimination.

“We have a lot of work to do if we want to be anywhere near the level we need to be to compete in Europe.”

With both teams eliminated from the EPL Conference, LookingForOrg will be Oceania’s only squad representing the region at ESL Pro League next year, with the group stage set to begin in early March.

Extra Salt and Movistar Riders were the first two sides qualified through to the group stage, with GODSENT rounding out the qualifiers through the lower bracket over Sprout.

ESL Pro League S15 Conference Rosters

The ESL Pro League Season 15 Conference saw sixteen teams from across the globe battle it out for just three spots at the EPL S15 group stage.

Spanish-based Movistar Riders entered the event as the highest ranked squad following their Masters Espana qualification and a solid run at the PGL Stockholm Major.

Renegades earned qualification through their victory at DreamHack Open OCE in September, while ORDER joined thanks to their second place result at ESL ANZ Champs.

Normally, the ESL ANZ Champs victor would have qualified here, but LookingForOrg’s ESEA-P S38 victory already earned them a spot in the group stage for ESL Pro League Season 15.
