Complexity to replace MAD Lions in Europe Minor closed qualifier

Complexity will take MAD Lions' spot in this weekend's closed qualifier for the Europe Minor, ESL has announced.

Benjamin "blameF" Bremer's troops were called in last-minute after MAD Lions decided to withdraw from the qualifier "due to being unable to field a suitable roster" for the tournament, which will kick off Saturday.

The news follows an HLTV.org report revealing that the Danish team had decided to bench in-game leader Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen because of internal issues. DBLTAP later reported that MAD Lions had set their sights on Asger "AcilioN" Larsen, who is currently on Copenhagen Flames's bench.

Complexity will face Sprout in the first round of the qualifier

Currently ranked 15th in the world, Complexity took part in three of the four open qualifiers and twice made the semi-finals, losing out to BIG and SMASH. The team's online woes have contrasted starkly with their form on LAN, having survived the 'Group of Death' at BLAST Premier and finished top-four at DreamHack Open Anaheim.

Complexity will fill take MAD Lions' spot in the double-elimination bracket, which means that they will face world No. 32 Sprout in the first round. The top eight teams of the qualifier will secure spots at the Europe Minor, which will be held from April 26 through May 2 in Rio de Janeiro.

The first-round match-ups are the following:

Sweden fnatic vs. Europe SMASH
Sweden Dignitas vs. Spain Movistar Riders
Europe GODSENT vs. Denmark Copenhagen Flames
Europe Complexity vs. Germany Sprout
Denmark Heroic vs. Finland KOVA
Europe OG vs. France Heretics
Germany BIG vs. Europe Nordavind
Sweden NiP vs. Norway Apeks

Still it should be decided by another few matches from the teams that are at the same placing levels as col in the qualifier Getting it like that is compeletly unfair
2020-03-06 19:35
No , they were the highest , overated european team that couldnt make it in 3 OPEN qualifiers vs tier 2 and tier 3 teams. That is epic BS
2020-03-06 22:43
In the beginning your right, takes time to get your grove with a new line up. Now they will fly threw to the major

seems fishy to bench your igl 2 days prior minor qualifier, internal issue could have wait after this qualifier everybody in mad lions is loosing, playing this qualifier and maybe get through it could have bring lot of money for each player & organization with stickers, i clearly can't understand that move something odd about it.

They would just have to play with the coach (peacemaker) if they did that. Unless they have a sutible replacement already signed and in their major contract. I don't think it would be against the rules tho so idk what they're doing 🤷‍♂️
2020-03-06 22:51
they even couldve easily qualified with peacemaker not like he is much worse than hunden, theres 8 spots up to grab, and they were second best team after fnatic this situation is shady af

Ignoring the MAD Lions drama- WHY is complexity being invited? It completely takes away from Smash's win knocking them out of major contention, what about all the other teams that failed in second place? Nice bias for a large org ESL :)
2020-03-06 19:51
Complexity is a bigger org, better for ESL to have that team. That's why cloud9 have been playing everything since always and still sucking.

2020-03-06 20:07
Yeah let's just assume the worst.
2020-03-06 20:08
There is something seriously wrong here. HUNDEN ditching his danish prospects before their chance to qualify for the biggest stage? HUNDEN, the guy who did the most for the danish scene in the last 10 years? Sorry, but I can't believe that. And coL of all teams replaces them, what is the justification for that?
2020-03-06 20:11
If you read the news article where he left, it wasn't him leaving, it was him being removed from the team for "internal issues" between him and the rest of the team.
2020-03-06 20:12
HUNDEN said on twitter that it was a mutual agreement that he went to a managerial position. Right before getting the chance to possibly qualify for the minor/major? I am not buying it. But why would the org give up the closed qual spot for no reason whatsoever? I am not willing to believe that they were unable to find a substition for HUNDEN, when the danish scene has what feels like infinite solid players to choose from. Why not pick some random dude and play the closed qualifier with that roster? You can do damage, there is no downside to doing it. Getting paid off to not take part is the only logical conclusion here.
2020-03-06 20:17
Ok, make sure you're wearing your tinfoil hat.

a bought spot
2020-03-06 20:13
they won’t qualify either way retarded decisions by mad lions though, gotta be wondering what the hell they were thinking. Would have been better to stick it out with HUNDEN for the minor qualifier in the hopes of going through and kick him after. If they would have made it his stickers would have probably sold well due to meme status.

yeah it is weird, why not just play with hunden one last time...

Or just play with a random standin. You can qualify for the minor with acoR, roeJ and sjuush destroying your opponents, doesn't even matter what the last 2 players are.

Is this a fucking joke ? Who decides who takes Mad lions place in the first place ?
2020-03-06 22:46
ESL rankings I believe.
2020-03-06 23:23
some legit ESL bs here.
2020-03-07 00:02
You're ridiculous. Which team should be invited then ? Col almost made it 2 times out of 3, plus they're by far the better ranked team out of those remaining.
2020-03-07 01:06
Which team ? Not a team that lost all 3 open qualifiers to everyone else. And if you want to be fair , do a mini tournament with the teams that could be there instead of COL and have the fight for that spot. And since when ESL rankings decide what happens in MAJOR qualifiers? This was a shitty move and beleive me Col might payed for this but even if they havent was a move from ESL to favor one of their customers if you get what i mean. Either way, shitty move, definitly unfair and this is historical BS. Never happened before in history of proffessional CSGO gaming someome to fail all 3 qualifiers to get invited afterwards. Never ever.
2020-03-07 03:23
SO WHICH TEAM DO THEY INVITE ? do you understand they have to replace Mad Lions ? Other teams like Illuminar, Gamerlegion etc ALSO failed the qualifiers FFS. a mini tournament less than 48h before the minor qual? yeah SURE. To be fair even if col have indeed ties with ESL they are still the logical choice for this replacement. Get real. A team that actually had decent results against top competition.
2020-03-07 03:37
Then why the fuck did they lose to PACT, Smash etc. If you fucking fail in qualifiers you fucking fail and you should have no other chances to get into major

2020-03-06 22:55
lol wut
2020-03-06 22:56
They failed in 3 open qualifiers and because they are part of ESL they made col a favor to push them to major for obvious reasons. VALVE should BAN ESL from held another major if that is the case. Since when Complexity deserves a fourth chance over others who had only one ? Oh wait they are part of ESL league right ? BS, that is some epic BS

what team would you rather see than complexity, and why would that be a better choice for ESL and for the viewers?
