T.c. I wondered what was happening with no skins on his players' guns.

Complexity fall just before quarterfinals

The Americans were unlucky to secure the third map.

Complexity falls to Monte in one of the hardest matches they've played in a long time when you consider the lengthy delay, the map consisting of only default loadouts, and then a jarring back-to-action map that went back and forth through to the end. Despite all that, they kept the match close in a strong effort but were eliminated from ESL Pro League just before the quarterfinals match.

Complexity sought to steal away Monte's map pick of Ancient, but faced a lot more troubles than they thought. The opening half was all Monte, all the way as they opened up the match with a pistol round win and were in control the whole time as they cruised to a 9-6 half. The Ukrainians continued that dominance through to the second half as their defense did not allow Complexity more than a single-round win as they won their own map pick, 16-7.

The dominance was startling for Complexity, but they earned a reprieve after an hour-long delay due to the global servers for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive being shut down ahead of Counter-Strike 2's release. Once back in the server, the two sides were able to play, but with only default loadouts which meant that there was no M4A1-S, putting the CT's at a disadvantage.

This was incredibly apparent as Complexity dominated Monte on their T-side of Overpass as they rushed to a 13-2 first half. The second half became much more difficult for the Americans, thanks to the aforementioned loadout issues. Without their usual skins or loadouts, Complexity dropped seven T-side rounds before finally closing it out 16-9.

Finally, on Anubis, the two sides were able to get their loadouts back which was much to the benefit of Monte, who started out on the CT-side. Back with their familiar weapons, the Ukrainian team jumped ahead to lead the half 9-6 and were in control towards the end of the game. Monte continued their momentum through to the end of the map as they closed out the match 16-12 and the series, 2-1.

Complexity now has to travel back to the United States as they play in the upcoming BLAST Americas Fall Showdown and then onward to IEM Sydney.
