- Complexity take down MIRB, while Fluxo defeat Paquetá to earn the spots
- The Americas RMRs marked Complexity and Fluxo’s redemption arcs
- Meanwhile Liquid had a tough time in their match against Nouns
All three BLAST Paris Major’s Americas RMR spots have been claimed by North American teams Complexity and Liquid, and Brazilian squad Fluxo.
Americas RMR Three Teams Have Been Decided
More teams have qualified for the BLAST Premier CS:GO Paris Major, that’s going to be held between May 8 and 21 in the French capital. Complexity had an easy walk through the qualification event, while their Brazilian colleagues, underdogs Fluxo, struggled against their opponents on the first map. Despite that, both teams scored 2-0 in their respective matches and continue forward to the main event. Lastly, Liquid had a tough slog against Nouns to take the final Americas RMR spot on offer but managed to emerge victorious 2-1.
Complexity quickly disposed of MIBR on the first map, Inferno, taking it 16-6. The Brazilian team put up much more of stiff resistance on the second map, Nuke, pushing Complexity almost to a third map. However, the North American team regained control and took the map 16-12, securing a spot at the Paris main event.
The Americas RMR was a redemption arc for Complexity, who finally made up for their failure to qualify for the IEM Rio Major. A chief reason for Complexity’s failure at that event was Imperial, who bested the North American majority squad. However, this time around, Complexity not only performed better at the Americas RMR, but also enacted revenge upon Imperial to conclude their redemption. Following that, it was smooth sailing for the team on their way to beating MIBR and securing a spot at the Paris Major.
Meanwhile, Fluxo did not have as easy as their North American counterparts. The Brazilians came into the Americas RMR as underdogs, having slipped to No. 58 from a peak ranking of No. 26 amidst a series of underwhelming results. However, the event was a redemption arc for Fluco as well, as the team ensured a spot for the Paris event in a series of tough slogs.
Fluxo’s qualification marks a return to Major play for João “felps” Vasconcellos. He has already twice achieved top-four at a Major with the SK lineup that later became MIBR. Felps’ last showing was at PGL Major Stockholm 2021.
Team Liquid had perhaps the toughest road in the Americas RMRs of all three qualified teams. Their final match against relative underdogs Nouns proved this much. The match lasted the full three maps, with Nouns stretching the game to overtime on the second map, Ancient. Nouns managed to take the map 19-16, but they seem to have run out of steam, as Liquid regained the initiative in the final map, Nuke, taking it 16-9 to close off the game 2-1 and secure a spot for the Paris Major in May.
