Complexity look to continue their performances

What to expect from Complexity v. FURIA

Complexity's opening match is squared away!

Complexity are riding high right now. Runners up at IEM Sydney, top four at BLAST Premier Fall Final, and all-time high for this squad as they reached #5 on HLTV's World Rankings. Everything is going Complexity's way and now they have a shot to continue that trend as they face off against their regional rivals FURIA. The Brazilians, meanwhile, are struggling at the moment. Their new squad hasn't panned out the way they wanted and a match up against Complexity pits them as an underdog for the first time in a long while.

Complexity's Catapulting Form

It was said in the opening, but Complexity are simply unstoppable at the moment. Their losses on LAN since the introduction of Counter-Strike 2 are only to Top 5 opponents. FURIA, who are currently struggling, are not in the same level of form that could even give the Americans a run for their money.

  • EliGE has a 1.19 HLTV Rating and a 1.25 Impact Rating since joining Complexity

  • Complexity has only played FURIA once in 2023... they won

  • hallzerk continues to struggle in CS2, maybe he can find his footing?

FURIA's frustrating floundering

16th in the world just doesn't cut it for Brazil's best team. The blockbuster signings of Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes have not panned out the way that fans and the organization hoped. They've had mixed results in online competitions in Europe, but no notable wins as of recent memory. This is potentially the weakest FURIA we have seen so far.

  • FalleN has a 1.02 HLTV Rating and 0.92 Impact since joining FURIA

  • FURIA have 19 wins out of 47 map against Top 20 opponents in the last 6 months

  • In those maps, KSCERATO only has a 1.06 HLTV Rating.

Previous Matchups

The last time Complexity played FURIA was during the BLAST Premier Americas Fall Showdown, where Complexity won 2-1.

Likely Vetoes

The maps for each team seem to be fairly even, leading to a somewhat predictable matchup.

  • FURIA ban Anubis

  • Complexity ban Mirage

  • FURIA ban Inferno

  • Complexity ban Vertigo

  • FURIA ban Nuke

  • Complexity ban Ancient

  • Overpass as Remainder

Complexity and FURIA face off tomorrow morning bright and early at 07:00AM.
