After three straight losses, Imperial is done and dusted at ESL Pro League Season 17. The South American team lost in the Last Chance Stage to Complexity.
It started horribly wrong for Complexity though. The NA team went behind 12-0 on Inferno before finally answering back. The map was over almost before it had begun. Complexity’s star player, Michael 'Grim' Wince had a nightmare map clocking in a 0.26 rating during the 17 rounds it took Imperial to win 16-1.
Ancient was up next, and luckily, we got to see another side of the Complexity squad. The current no. 11 in the world was able to lock in their own map with a 16-14 win despite a valiant effort from the Brazilian professor Gabriel 'FalleN' Toledo. The experienced Brazilian had played lights out on both Inferno and Ancient.
On Overpass that didn’t change. In a very evenly fought match the two teams had to settle the score in triple overtime before a winner was found. Here Complexity can thank in-game leader Johnny 'JT' Theodosiou for staying alive in the match. The South African won a 1vs4 situation to give his team the opportunity to win the match, which was finally done at 25-23!
Complexity face the loser of FURIA vs BIG in the next stage tomorrow, where the winner gets the chance to advance to the 4th place decider match Sunday evening.
