Yay and the rest of compLexity will be making a trip to New York in the next month
compLexity kicked off the series with a near-perfect performance on Train, easily shutting down eUnited on the team's map pick. A resounding performance from Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker, including an ace on the second pistol round, gave compLexity the first map 16-1.
Conversely, eUnited began to rev up their performance on compLexity's map pick. Though compLexity were able to find the first three rounds on Mirage, eUnited composed themselves, finding two more rounds before compLexity denied them the possibility to tie the map 3-3. Both teams continued to trade rounds, before Kaleb "moose" Jayne led his team through a five round streak, giving eUnited the lead and eventually bringing them in the lead at the end of the half 10-5.
Down by half in the second half, compLexity refused to let up, with strong picks from Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan leading the team to a 14-11 lead, with match point nearly in reach. compLexity were unable to reach match point however, as eUnited pushed through the last five rounds to take the lead and win the map 16-14, in spite of compLexity's comeback, tying up the series 1-1.
eUnited maintained their momentum going into Inferno, immediately taking the first four rounds on the CT-side with Brandon "Ace" Winn at the helm. Bradley "ANDROID" Fodor responded, giving compLexity five straight rounds of their own and the lead 5-4. After a few traded rounds, compLexity ultimately took the lead, ending the half 9-6.
Ace did not let up in the second half, guaranteeing his team the sceond pistol round with three kills in the post-plant, followed by two more rounds. With the score now tied 9-9, compLexity took back control of the match along with six straight rounds of their own, putting them at match point. On their last leg, eUnited pulled off one more round, but ultimately fell in the subsequent round, losing Inferno 16-10 and giving compLexity the series 2-1.
