Swole Patrol, compLexity through to ESL One New York North America Closed Qualifier

Swole Patrol and Complexity are the last two teams confirmed for the North America closed qualifier.

Over 120 teams from all over North America competed in the open qualifier, where the quarter-finals saw Swole Patrol take down boxr 16-9, while Complexity stomped The Pioneers 16-1 to get to the deciding semi-final matches.

The first semi-final started on Inferno, where Jordan "⁠Zellsis⁠" Montemurro and his men proved to be trouble for Bravado, who were unable to find an edge against Swole Patrol. The North American squad capped off the CT-side with an 11-4 lead at halftime, but a rocky start for Swole Patrol in the second half saw the South Africans rack up six rounds as CTs, contesting on the map. In the end, the North Americans kept their composure to seal the victory 16-10 and take the series lead.

Zellsis shined with a 1.66 rating in the sweep

The series then moved on to Overpass. Bravado came out swinging on the T-side to grab a quick 2-0 start; however, Swole Patrol held the line with three in a row to make it 3-2. Bravado fought back stringing together two more, but the North Americans remained in control to win seven out of eight rounds securing the 10-5 half. Swole Patrol then continued their dominance through the second half, earning six out of seven rounds to seal passage to the closed qualifier, sweeping the series 2-0.

On the other side of the bracket, Complexity blasted through the gates on the T-side against Freedom 35, with Shahzeb "⁠ShahZaM⁠" Khan leading the way wielding the Big Green, helping them net a commanding 13-2 score at the half. The tides turned in the second half as Freedom 35 slapped on five straight on the board, before the streak came to an end with a round that was barely won by Complexity. Slowly but surely, Complexity finally got it together and secured the 16-10 win over a Freedom 35.

Complexity once again dominate right from the start, this time around on Mirage, where Jaccob "⁠yay⁠" Whiteaker led the way with an impressive 133.9 ADR and 2.38 rating through the convincing 14-1 half. Securing the last two rounds in the second half quickly made the series score 2-0 and earned them their spot in the closed qualifier.
