compLexity, Rogue qualify for ECS Season 5

compLexity and Rogue are through to the ECS Season 5 North America after finishing top two in the Challenger Cup.

The tournament, featuring a double-elimination, best-of-three format, saw Complexity and Rogue battle it out against Rise Nation and Splyce, respectively, for a place in the main league after the likes of TeamOne and Ghost were sent to the lower bracket early.

FNS' compLexity have booked their place in ECS Season 5

The first squad to secure their place in ECS Season 5 was Pujan "⁠FNS⁠" Mehta's Complexity, who began their series with a comfortable win on Rise Nation's map pick, Inferno, 16-5. Next up was Cobblestone, and despite it not being as lopsided as the previous map, compLexity prevailed without breaking much of a sweat as they ran out 16-11 victors.

The following map, Nuke, was a complete blowout, as Spencer "⁠Hiko⁠" Martin's side breezed past Splyce 16-2, with Daniel "⁠vice⁠" Kim finishing the game with a 2.01 rating.

He's actually pretty consistent alongside Android. Yay and PTR are hit or miss and now they finally have a good IGL in FNS. This team can go places as long as Yay and PTR can become consistent somehow.
