compLexity win Americas Minor over Rogue
With both teams already through to the Major's New Challengers Stage, Rogue and Complexity faced off for bragging rights and for the grand prize of $30,000. Earlier in the tournament, Rogue had run out 2-0 victors over coL in the upper bracket final, but viewers tuning in to the stream quickly realised that this would be a very different match.
Starting out on the Terrorist side of the map, Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz's men ran all over the defence and cruised to a 10-1 lead. A triple kill from Hunter "SicK" Mims then helped Rogue get their second round on the board, but there was no follow-up, although Casper "cadiaN" Møller almost pulled off a 1v2 clutch.
Rogue then came close to winning the final round of the half after a triple kill spraydown from Daniel "vice" Kim on the B site, but Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and stanislaw remained calm and collected and overturned a 2v4 situation for a 13-2 lead.
More misery was about to come for Rogue, who lost the opening two rounds of the second half. cadiaN's side still managed to respond thanks to a successful CZ force buy, but Complexity hit back immediately for a clean 16-3 finish.
Dust2 saw Complexity start off with a similar performance as on Mirage, reading Rogue's movements well throughout the first 10 rounds to claim a 9-1 lead as Terrorists. A triple from Spencer "Hiko" Martin stopped the streak and Rogue were able to clinch three more rounds before the half ended at 11-4.
When stanislaw's side secured the second pistol round as well, all hope seemed lost for Rogue, but they still had life left in them, as they won the second-round forcebuy with a quick A play and added three rounds to their tally on the back of it.
