Revenge game complete: Mike “Majormaniak” Szymaniak and the Florida Mutineers have defeated the Minnesota ROKKR in both teams’ second match of the Major IV qualifiers. This was Majormaniak’s first game against the ROKKR since they dropped and released him earlier this year. He recently signed with Florida, who is currently battling Minnesota for a top-eight seed in the CDL standings and a spot at Champs. Coming into today, the two teams were tied at 110 points — now, Florida is up by 10, thanks to the performance of Majormaniak and company today.
The match wasn’t particularly close in any regard; Florida secured a sweep over the ROKKR, which could be important later down the road in certain tiebreaker scenarios. If two teams end up tied in points, then the higher seed will be determined by map wins.
ROKKR swept by Majormaniak and Florida
Not only did Minnesota lose valuable points to a team they’re currently fighting with in the standings, but they let the man they dropped walk all over them. Majormaniak was a human turret on the map, finishing with a 1.00 KD or better in all three maps. It was clear from the start that Major was out for blood in his revenge game. After the match concluded, he simply tweeted “I’m gonna bet on me every time,” obviously referencing Minnesota’s decision to drop him. Florida also tweeted something that ROKKR fans might want to turn away from.

While Majormaniak did have a great game, the rest of Florida also performed quite well. Cesar “Skyz” Bueno was the main slayer alongside Major, posting a 1.20 KD in the series. The only exception here was the other new Mutineer, Brendan “2ReaL” Stockdale. Stockdale didn’t have the best series, only posting a 0.83 KD.
On the ROKKR’s side, no one had a particularly noteworthy match. Dillon “Attach” Price once again led the way for Minnesota. but every single member of the team finished with around a 0.95 KD. That won’t get things done for a team on the hunt for CDL Champs.
Florida and Minnesota will have a chance to continue their top-eight skirmish next weekend.
