Torqued are through to ESL One Belo Horizonte after defeating compLexity 3-0 (16-13 on Cache and 19-17 on Cobblestone) in the best-of-five grand final.

Earlier on Saturday, the upper bracket final between Torqued and Rogue saw Joshua "steel" Nissan and his men breeze through Overpass and Cache to secure the 2-0 sweep to the grand final, earning an automatic one-map advantage going into the final. Down in the lower bracket Rogue faced off against compLexity in the consolidation final, in which Alec "Slemmy" White and co. dominated on the decider Mirage 16-4 to get a shot at revenge on Torqued

The grand final kicked off on compLexity’s map pick, Cache, where Torqued picked up the pistol and an anti-eco. compLexity claimed an eco round to reduce the deficit by one, but Torqued returned to pick up three in a row before their opponents could respond. compLexity then pressed on with five straight before steel and his men contested, with coL taking a narrow lead going into the break.

steel, swag, and AZK are headed to Brazil

Torqued secured the second pistol and continued to pick up four more rounds, but compLexity came right back with five of their own to take the lead (13-12). However, Torqued came out on top of their buy round and re-took the lead, leaving compLexity with a shattered economy and unable to do anything for the rest of the game.

A smooth start on the T-side from Torqued on their map pick, Cobblestone, saw compLexity struggle to find a way to hold off the aggression, who faced an 11-4 deficit going into the second half. The sides switched and so did the momentum as compLexity came out in the second half red-hot on the T-side and secured ten of the first 12 rounds. Torqued then strung two together to hit match point, but last-minute heroics from Slemmy in a 1v1 sent the game to overtime.

The overtime rounds began with Torqued winning three straight. compLexity began the second half of overtime with two of their own before Braxton "swag" Pierce and Kenneth "koosta" Suen picked up a pair of doubles to send Torqued to ESL One Belo Horizonte.

The event invited them and ntc is a brazilian org doing bootcamp in europe, i dont see any problem since they are both Br's teams, tbh better one of them than furia or isurus for exemple.

because WESG rules said that teams had to play their countries qualifiers, but then in the american qualifier they played in NA, while their runner up in the Brazil qualys, TeamOne, played in SA

Nice The tournament in Sao Paulo would have been good as a viewer but the live casting thus resulting in turned down mics resulting in a quiet crowd (when it probably wasn't) ruined some of it. Not to mention tons of technical issues but that's ESL's fault and we will probably see it here too knowing ESL. Glad valve stopped giving these guys majors. Nevertheless hope for a FaZe-SK final, just the skill on the server when these two teams played in the final made the whole tournament worth it.

2018-04-15 13:16
Imagine if steel wasn't a dickhead back then. Every team would have wanted this guy, he is a smart IGL and he can frag. Of all the IBP guys, he's the one fragging hard every games. With all the things he has done to redeem himself, it should be fairplay from valve to unban this guy from majors. Keep it up Josh.
