  • Complexity is not the sole NA representative for the upcoming PGL Major Copenhagen
  • Liquid fell despite being bolstered by a rebuilt roster over the past month
  • Liquid also made mistakes in allowing Complexity to play their strongest maps

EliGE came up against his former team Liquid and led Complexity to victory, becoming the only North American representative of the upcoming main event.

Complexity Qualify for PGL Major Copenhagen

All of the teams participating in the PGL Major Copenhagen have been revealed as Complexity defeated Liquid in an intense 2-1 to secure a spot in the tournament. There were fears that North America might not produce a representative to participate in the main event after four Brazilian teams secured berths for it earlier. However, Complexity came to the rescue at the last minute, winning against Liquid to ensure that at least one NA team would be present at the PGL Major Copenhagen.

However, it was not going to be an easy job for Complexity, as Jonathan “⁠EliGE⁠” Jablonowski had to go up against his former team, which was also rebuilt over the past months. Liquid had very high hopes for their roster, which was greatly augmented when they signed Casper “⁠cadiaN⁠” Møller in December.

Despite those worries, Complexity came on top in the grueling match. “It feels great, 100%,” EliGE said when asked about beating his former team. “I feel really bad for them of course, they have a crazy project, but it’s crappy seeding. Okay, crappy format. We both had to play FURIA, the strongest team here and now had to face each other [for elimination].”

The victory comes just a few days after Complexity was acquired by Investor group Global Esports Properties, a company led by Complexity’s founder and CEO Jason Lake.

Here’s How the Match Went

It seems that Liquid had a somewhat lackluster play in a shallow map pool, allowing Complexity to pick their two strongest maps of Anubis and Overpass. That being said, the series started on Inferno with Liquid controlling the vast majority of gun rounds on their usual map pick. cadiaN then came up clutch with an AWP ace on B at 9-7 to put the map beyond the reach of Complexity. Not long after, Liquid took Inferno with a solid 13-9 difference.

However, things would be much more different on Anubis, and despite Liquid winning five rounds in a row early on the map, they then lost a whopping ten. Complexity’s Michael “⁠Grim⁠” Wince was in great shape throughout and as he was backed by EliGE, the team quickly took the map with a huge 13-5 lead.

Overpass was to be the final map of the series and Complexity took the early control to take five rounds in a row, much as Liquid previously. CadiaN’s squad managed to recover to four at the half but lost their sixth pistol of the series as the sides changed. Liquid had one last gasp of air on the CT side, but this was en vain as EliGE and company controlled the flow of the game to end the map 13-7.
