Astralis overrun compLexity at iBUYPOWER Masters

In the first match of iBUYPOWER Masters 2019, Astralis secured a dominant win over compLexity, 16-3 on Dust2, moving on to the group A winners' match.

A pistol round lockdown and a clean anti-eco conversion saw Astralis take the early lead on the CT side of Dust2, with Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen's 3K on Long in round four helping the Danes extend their perfect streak to 6-0.

The following round was a tight one, as kills were traded back and forth and compLexity got onto the A site in a 2v2. However, good utility usage from Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and Emil "Magisk" Reif denied the bomb plant, allowing Astralis to win the round as time ran out.

gla1ve and co. dispatched of compLexity quickly

Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and co. finally got on the board as they pulled off an A-split and recovered from the subsequent round loss with a force-buy Catwalk push (9-2). However, that was all she wrote for compLexity's T side, as Astralis would lock them out for the rest of the half, 13-2.

Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan did his best to keep his side in it, securing the CT pistol round with three frags from the A site, but Astralis struck back with a force-buy in the next round and closed the match out quickly, 16-3.

You're just a cyberbully who simply doesn't respect someone else's opinion I bet you have very low self esteem, you should go to therapy instead of ventilating your insecurities through HLTV on someone who's clearly not guilty for your tiny dick problems. Let him speak his mind dude, you attacked him as if he insulted your mom and also you were quite racist: 'mr. brazilian' really? what does that have to do with anything? I hope you're not OfficialHLTV because you show the worst of HLTV community: racism, bullying and outright 'douchebaggery' EDIT: Hey iBUYPOWER, I just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying the stream so far! I love having the privilege of being able to watch the best teams in Counter Strike in lossless quality through your broadcast. Much love from your #1 deaf view

I feel insulted that you think I'm not the Official HLTV, you're the real cyberbully here, you can't just assume stuff about other people on the internet like that.
2019-01-20 00:33
Oh, I know, that's why I let people say what they want to say and respect it. Now you have a taste of your own medicine. How does it feel?

So summary of IBPMasters - 1st game delayed by 3+ hrs Stream comes live, everybody told to leave the building little security at venue, all attending had to have their bags searched 1st match starts, but stream audio tanks Big screen not working, live fans watching on small TVs
2019-01-20 00:02
Sounds like they wanted to throw a 200k event while saving as much money as possible lol
2019-01-20 00:05
By collecting Astralis, FaZe, Liquid, Fnatic ... You should take maximum care of the quality, but this does not apply to IBPMasters
2019-01-20 00:09
I guess the big screen is working, but if the match was being displayed there, the players would be able to see the stream with the locations of the enemy team etc.
