compLexity have sealed passage to the Americas Minor's upper bracket final after defeating NRG 2-1 (8-16 on Cache, 19-17 on Train, and 16-8 on Inferno).

The second and final match of the day kicked off with compLexity bagging a quick 2-0 lead as CTs on their map pick, Cache. NRG responded with a flawless strategy in a third-round buy, however, breaking through the defence and taking control of proceedings from there on out, 6-2.

It was only then that Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz's men, with nothing but pistols, got back on the board with double-kills from the 24-year-old. Although NRG hit back immediately, compLexity tightened up their defence, losing just two more to bring the deficit to a sole round by half-time.

Just like in the first half, the CT side won the pistol round and the subsequent anti-eco, but could not prevail against their opponents' buy in the third round. Nevertheless, NRG instantly countered the offence, stringing six rounds together to take the lead in the series, 16-8.

ShahZaM and co. came from behind to beat NRG

The second map was Train, NRG's map pick. Playing as Terrorists, compLexity secured a 3-0 score thanks to a 1v2 post-plant clutch from stanislaw in the pistol. NRG then won the first gun round on the back of an AWP triple-kill by Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov, and went on to take the lead in the following rounds.

compLexity levelled the score with a quad-kill from Bradley "ANDROID" Fodor with a Deagle, but NRG didn't let their rivals capitalize on it as they kept shutting down the defence to go up 8-5. Still, NRG replied with two successful rounds to reduce the deficit to 7-8 before switching sides.

Now playing on the T-side, NRG picked up the pistol round and the subsequent anti-ecos to bag an 11-8 lead. compLexity seemed set to win the first gun round, but CeRq came up huge, denying his opponents with a triple-kill in a 2v4 situation.

Down 8-13, compLexity called for a tactical pause in a bid to halt NRG's momentum, which inspired Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker and co. to take the map to overtime despite NRG playing three match-points. Moreover, compLexity remained calm and collected and turned the map around in their favour, 19-17.

stanislaw's men are one victory away from the New Challengers stage

The decider, Inferno, began with NRG winning their third pistol round of the series, but failing to overcome their opponents' force-buy. compLexity went on to take control of proceedings from that moment, 3-1.

After building up their economy, NRG saw Jacob "FugLy" Medina stop compLexity's aggression in banana with a great quad-kill, which helped his team remain in command early in the map. Still, compLexity did not back down and responded with a great run to bag a narrow 8-7 lead by half-time.

Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and his teammates carried that momentum into the second half, with the 24-year-old finding a triple-kill to help compLexity secure their CT pistol. Surprisingly enough, the second half was a one-way street for compLexity, who lost a single round to clinch their spot in the Americas Minor's upper bracket final with a 16-8 victory.

An average of 10 damage more per round. 84 rounds in total. I’d say you can classify that as a bit of a carry.
