Gen.G defeat Complexity to secure playoff berth

Gen.G won their bout against Complexity on Inferno 16-13 to secure a spot in the DreamHack Open Anaheim playoffs.

Gen.G have been going in crescendo at DreamHack Open Anaheim, where they turned their first map around with a CT-side comeback on Nuke against ENCE before showing they’re the team to beat by taking down the red-hot Complexity, who come off of a great run at BLAST Premier and beat MIBR 16-11 in their opening match in California.

Gen.G thus become the second team to qualify for the semi-finals in Anaheim where they join FURIA, who topped group A by thrashing North in their winners’ match, and will have one day off as the group stage's losers’ and decider matches play out ahead of the playoffs.

Gen.G will have Saturday off before the semi-finals on Sunday

Four pistol kills on the attacking side of Inferno by Sam "s0m" Oh put Gen.G in the lead. He then died after taking down two players in a 1vs3 afterplant on B, but the bomb had ticked long enough that Valentin "poizon" Vasilev, the last remaining CT, was forced to run down banana as to not get caught in the explosion. Complexity then got on the board, breaking Gen.G’s economy to make it 2-2 against the eco. The North American side then successfully exploded onto the B site with pistols while down 2-4 in the seventh round to keep it within one. Back-and-forth rounds kept the half close but Gen.G took the lead with s0m at the helm, ending 9-6.

s0m once again took center stage, downing three enemies in the second pistol round to bring his tally up to 7 across both and helping Gen.G hit double digits. The North American team grabbed a 12-6 lead before Complexity could win an attacking round, but the Europeans followed it up and started to snowball after breaking their enemies’ economy by abusing the B site. It was in the twenty-fifth round with a tied score that Gen.G retook their lead with a successful 3vs3 retake on A, going on to close the map and match out 16-13 to qualify for the playoffs.

Look at Gen.G death count. It could not have been better
2020-02-22 19:25
He had a molotov kill after round 15 ended so it wasn't counted as it had no impact on the match.

s0m is honestly their most inconsistent player he's carried like 4-5 games during his time though that make him worth it i think IEM chicago elimination match and this specifically. i havent been too caught up, but he's an asset sometimes. still much more potential in other NA players tho zzz
2020-02-22 05:43
Yeah so is obo. Hit or miss.

2020-02-22 05:25
Daps had some excellent calls on t side that game, and the team always seems to trust him with those calls. It's looking solid for now.

If he just aim a little better. The igl doesnt have to be the topfragger but damn it hurts my eyes watching him play. But we will see in their next games
2020-02-22 05:32
Ye i also cringe a bit when he aim but as i said, the team seems to trust his calls and it impacted their chemistry a lot i feel, unlike his last iteration of C9 with a certain "rising star" who wouldn't listen for shits.
2020-02-22 05:37
See the results every time it happens? Team most likely turns into a meme and can't win shit no more.
2020-02-22 06:20
You did it! you broke ENCE down to it's bare essentials

Only works if you can find someone who can pick up where they left off a la Stanislaw and NRG
2020-02-22 14:45
Didn't really work tbf, they've been doing pretty bad lately. Lets see if they were "hiding" strats for major.
2020-02-22 22:03
there's a fine line between always depending on individual skills and hiding strats
2020-02-23 06:08
Yeah happened before, but the good results also left as their igl left, example faze after kicking karrigan, ence after kicking aleksib etc.

Want to see them do well but i cant imagine they will win any teir 1 event with Daps and koosta. Shame bcuz auti, s0m and bntet are great players.
2020-02-22 07:54
I can't understand why koosta was on this team if auti is the one who awping.

Koosta is a waste of oxygen, daps is a great IGL but he probably doesnt belong on this team when they have bntet, unless they want to have bntet madfragging and daps IGL’ing
2020-02-22 11:35
Yeah daps has buildt some good teams and is a good igl but nowdays you have to frag too as an igl. We are not in 2015

You're probably never going to change your opinion on s0m no matter how well he consistently does
2020-02-22 17:14
performing vs tier 3 inconsistently does not qualify him to be a consistent player maybe if he can prove himself more than it’ll change
