Complexity breeze past Sprout; advance to BLAST Premier Fall Showdown quarter-finals
Complexity showed their superiority against Sprout from the very beginning in their BLAST Premier Fall Showdown Round of 16 match, giving the German-Polish team no respect and making individual plays from the get go. Remaining the dominating force throughout the series, Complexity secured a spot in the tournament's quarter-finals in two maps, and are now waiting for the victor of NIP vs. Cloud9.
Sprout, who were out of their depth in their first and only match at the BLAST Showdown, will now return their focus to the ESEA MDL Season 35 playoffs, where they are playing Wisla Krakow at 19:30 for a spot in the consolidation final against sAw on Wednesday.
Complexity stopped Sprout from planting on the B site of Nuke to kick off proceedings, although Sprout let themselves be heard early on, winning their first gun round with three kills by Denis "denis" Howell to make it 1-2. Complexity imposed their will with an aggressive play in lobby to stay ahead, and the CTs kept taking aggressive individual duels, not showing any respect. Complexity then kept their foot on the gas, not giving up a single round on the way to a 14-1 half.
Complexity managed to plant on the B site, but overextended in their afterplant defense and Sprout were able to pick off the Terrorists one by one, going on to defuse the bomb in-extremis. Three rounds later Sprout's comeback attempt came to an end, as Complexity won a clean play going down ramp and planting on the B site to hit match point, closing out the first map the following round, 16-4.
Complexity took the lead once again on Mirage, winning the first pistol round on the attacking side and going on to dominate the early rounds of their map pick. It wasn’t until the seventh round that Sprout were able to get on the board for the first time, but were once again overwhelmed the following round by a B play. Complexity stayed well ahead, and although Paweł "dycha" Dycha was able to get three kills, including a 1vs1 clutch on the A site, to tally another, Sprout wre unable to make an impact in the half, winning just one more round before switching sides.
Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke took down three players in the second pistol round to keep Complexity charging ahead on the defense, and although Sprout were able to win their first round with AKs to keep the match alive, that would be it as Complexity went on to close the second map with another 4-16 scoreline to secure a spot in the following round of the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown.
