Complexity kicked off the first semi-final bout against TeamOne in a three-map series which saw the North Americans claim their spot in the grand final. Meanwhile, NRG cleaned up Swole Patrol in a slated 2-0 win, booking the remaining spot in the final.
The grand final began on Nuke, where NRG got off to a swift 3-0 start on their T-side, securing the pistol and the following anti-ecos. Complexity then put a dent in NRG's lead, but without hesitation, NRG got back into it and tacked on three rounds to make it 6-1.
Complexity managed to make a little noise on their CT-side with a few rounds here and there, but not enough to rattle NRG's T-side, who secured a commanding 11-4 lead at halftime. Things didn't get any better for the red and black jerseys as Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte fired on all cylinders, winning five in a row to secure the 16-4 map victory and the series lead.
The series then landed on Inferno, which saw Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and his men off to a smooth 3-0 start on the T-side before NRG rallied back as CTs with six straight. A lopsided round gave Complexity a break, but NRG didn't waste any time getting back into the thick of things, earning the next four out of five rounds to secure a 10-5 lead before halftime.
After the sides switched, NRG kept their foot on the gas to remain in control on their T-side, only giving up two rounds in the second half and sealing their 16-7 map win and the 2-0 series victory to qualify for the LAN finals of StarSeries i-League Season 6.
