AGO defeat Complexity to earn first win at EPL

Complexity's hopes of playoffs start to fade as they prepare to face Natus Vincere with a 0-2 record.

AGO secured their first victory at ESL Pro League Season 15 after defeating Complexity and are now sitting on a 1-1 record in Group D. The series got started with the North American squad dominating the first half of Dust2, eventually converting the map 16-11 before dropping Ancient 11-16 after an uninspiring CT side. An entertaining match on Vertigo eventually went the way of the Poles, who closed the decider 16-12.

After a tough game against Natus Vincere on the first day of the group, AGO were able to bounce back against the North American squad. However, there is still a long road ahead of the Polish team, facing off against a reinvigorated Astralis on Friday at 12:30 .

Meanwhile, Complexity continue their campaign in Germany without a win, carrying a 0-2 record in Group D. A difficult schedule will have them face Natus Vincere, Evil Geniuses, and Astralis over the next three days.

F1KU was crucial for AGO's success today

Looking to redeem themselves after their collapse against Natus Vincere on Dust2, AGO decided to pick the map again against Complexity. Unfortunately for them, the outcome would not be much better. The North Americans secured a quick 2-0 lead on the defense to which the Poles responded with two rounds of their own, winning a solid 2v3 post-plant on A. After that, it all went the way of Complexity as Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou, Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince, and Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson kept hammering AGO to go 12-3 ahead before halftime.

With Complexity securing a 15-4 lead early in the second half, the result seemed to have been decided. Not looking to go down without a fight, however, the Poles strung together seven consecutive rounds on the defense to cut their deficit to 11-15, but forcing overtime was one step too far. JT and co. eventually managed to get that last round on B to close the opening map of the series 16-11.

After the first map, we jumped straight into Complexity's pick of Ancient and were treated to a much closer first half. AGO took their second pistol round of the series on the CT side, leading to an early 3-0 advantage. Justin "⁠FaNg⁠" Coakley came alive on the T side, finding impact with the rifle and proving crucial alongside Grim as they edged the first half 8-7. Roland "⁠ultimate⁠" Tomkowiak topped the scoreboard for the Poles before the break, displaying a 15-11 K-D and a 1.24 rating.

A 10-7 lead after the start of the second half did not scare AGO as the squad embarked on another winning streak, this time on the T side. The poles stole eight consecutive rounds to claim map point at 15-10. Maciej "⁠F1KU⁠" Miklas was a monster in clutch situations, winning several duels and 1vX situations to keep the streak alive, perfectly setting his team up for a 16-11 win.

JT led by example on Dust2

The series saw its end on Vertigo, with the Poles quickly gaining the advantage in the first half with some good utility usage on the offense and some confident individuals like F1KU and Łukasz "⁠mwlky⁠" Pachucki. A short resurgence from Complexity enabled them to equalize the scoreline at 5-5, salvaging an otherwise very flat CT side. The offense would eventually put an end to the 9-6 half on the A bombsite, with ultimate shutting down Ricky "⁠floppy⁠" Kemery's 1v3 attempt.

The second half saw Complexity bring the game even after their pistol round success, but they would quickly run out of steam as AGO's utility, teamwork, and sharp individuals proved too much for the boys in blue-and-white to handle. F1KU would be the one to put an end to the affair, closing the map 16-12 and the series 2-1.

I think you are remembering it wrong, dude. When junior joined Fúria they were already playing in Europe. The period when they were playing only in NA was the Hen1 period (when they actually got top 3, but yeah, I agree that doesn't mean much). When junior joined in they were already playing in Europe and we're still like top 7 or 8 in the world. Then with junior they fell to something like top 20 or so. Now they are back to top 10, so PrestusHood has a point here

This match really shows where polish csgo scene is. Despite team dropping in a couple of weeks from top30 and winning Esea Premier after making crucial core changes, AGO still managed to secre a win against tier 1 team. In Poland we try many lineups, many new teams, many new solutions just to break into top30 and fight for tier1 just like old VP was. Im happy for AGO that they almost win a map against NaVi and won with Complexity because it will give some comfidence boost to (i hope so) all polish players. Cant wait to see AGO playing anotha' matches

That's when the memes will come, the best NA team... That's what you get for being so cocky, all respect to AGO but losing a game vs them is a true disaster for coL, not only because ppl are going to laugh at them, but that's pretty much it for their chances of making the playoffs as they still have Na'Vi and Heroic to face and are already 0-2. AGO did great, I think even if they lose all the rest of the games 0-2 they will still be happy with their performance here, no one expected them to win a map even, I was thinking that they will 10 rounds in like 1 or 2 maps, but they did great, big respect to them, whatever map they win will be a huge success from now on.
