Natus Vincere send Complexity to ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe lower bracket

Natus Vincere will face the winner of BIG vs. Heroic next in the ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe upper bracket final.

Natus Vincere and Complexity made it to the ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe upper bracket semi-final with 2-1 victories over mousesports and ENCE, respectively. The last time the two teams met was at ESL One Cologne, where Complexity took the CIS side out 2-0 with Owen "⁠oBo⁠" Schlatter still in their ranks, although this time around they weren’t able to repeat the feat and it was NAVI who took the series without dropping a map.

Natus Vincere, who haven't lost a game since their group stage defeat to ENCE early on in the tournament, will now proceed through the upper bracket after defeating Complexity 2-0, and will meet the winner of BIG vs. Heroic in the last upper bracket match before the grand final.

Complexity on the other hand will go on to face one of the tournament heavyweights, Astralis, in the lower bracket, as Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander and company lost their derby match against Heroic in the opening round of the upper bracket before beating Spirit in their first lower bracket series.

Natus Vincere are through to the upper bracket final

Complexity went for a quick A play on the attacking side of Nuke in the first round but were swiftly dealt by Natus Vincere. The momentum shifted in the second round as Benjamin "⁠blameF⁠" Bremer and company were able to win the forcebuy to go up 3-1. Once the CIS side were able to get their hands on rifles the tables turned as they went on to win eight rounds in a row to take a 9-3 lead before giving up a round on their way to an 11-4 half.

A 1vs4 clutch by William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba in the second pistol round kept Complexity alive. Natus Vincere once again took their first buy of the half, but another clutch the round after, this time a 1vs2 by Valentin "⁠poizon⁠" Vasilev, gave Complexity another lifeline. Their early heroics weren’t enough in the end, however, as Natus Vincere went on to close their rivals’ map pick, 16-10.

Complexity started off Train on the CT side, but it was NAVI who took the first round, but three Desert Eagle headshots by Kristian "⁠k0nfig⁠" Wienecke gave his team the second round. The two squads stayed close early on, tying 4-4, but it was finally Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev and company who were able to get the best of the defenders winning the half 9-6.

Natus Vincere retook the B site and defused the bomb to claim the second pistol round, hitting double digits and clearing the path to a 2-0 series. Kirill "⁠Boombl4⁠" Mikhailov’s men didn’t look back on the defense, always a step ahead of their foes to close out the map and match 16-7.

electronic has more ADR than s1mple. That means s1mple baits that much?
2020-10-01 20:02
that means your IQ is < 60
2020-10-01 20:05
Idk yet. I'll ask your mom =)

oh so you mad, cool. so I must be right with my statement about your low iq

2020-10-01 20:21
Cause navi reached grand finals beating 3 #2 #3 and #7 teams in the world wiping the floor with all of them on their way to final, so thats in the news
2020-10-01 20:26
It's an upper bracket semi-final for one of the biggest event. Even Big signed XANTARES again can be on news, what do you expect

2020-10-03 18:03
NaVi is actually looking pretty good, I'm surprised by them a lot, I think the core of s1mple, electronic and Boombl4 can still make a world class team together. As for coL it's hard to play with a stand-in, but still they look pretty dead, honestly core of k0nfig, poizon and blameF is solid, but I think rebuild is the best option rn.
2020-10-01 20:38
Except the fact that NaVi already ARE a world class team. P.s. And Perfecto is making a big progress.
2020-10-01 22:12
He is much better than he was when he joined NaVi, but still he is not enough for this team.
