Complexity complete statement win over ENCE
Complexity rallied after back-to-back losses in impressive fashion against ENCE to close the group play with a positive 3-2 record. Despite notching three wins, they are not guaranteed for the playoffs. With other group games currently ongoing, Complexity’s playoff hopes are behind the eight ball.
The series kicked off on Complexity’s map pick of Overpass. Their T-side was strong to start, taking the pistol round plus six more to start the map up 7-3. Things slowed at the tail end of the first half, as they were unable to convert another round before closing the first fifteen down 7-8. Even after losing five straight to end the first half, Michael “Grim” Wince was otherworldly, closing the T-side with an 18-9 K/D, 117 ADR, and an unreal 1.91 rating.
Despite the abrupt halt in the first half, Complexity had no issues rallying back on the CT side. They took the second half pistol and didn’t let up. ENCE snuck in a few offensive rounds against them, but the Complexity defense was otherwise too much for the international team to handle. The 7-8 deficit for Complexity quickly became a 10-9 lead, and eventually a 16-11 victory. After a strong win on their pick, it was time to take the battle to ENCE’s pick of Nuke.
Complexity did not let off the gas when they arrived on Nuke. In fact, they hit ENCE even harder on their opponent’s map pick. The Americans started the first half up 10-0 against ENCE on CT-side, only allowing two bomb plants in that time. ENCE were finally able to manage a few round wins to prevent the 16-0 shutout, but Complexity closed still the first half with a comfortable 12-3 lead.
After winning pistol to complete the perfect 4-4, Complexity were poised to close Nuke and take the 2-0. As expected, ENCE offered pushback on their defensive end. Things got tight between the two teams, as Complexity went cold on the T-side, losing eleven straight rounds. When things were looking bleak, they pulled it together in the eleventh hour to close the map out 16-14. Grim was a major catalyst on both maps, topping the charts for his team to get them their third EPL group win.
