Evil Geniuses won the Extreme Masters American Continental Finals with a relaxed 2-0 win over compLexity.
Following the ESEA Finals last month, this was expected to be a close encounter but it ended up being anything but that as EG proved far too strong for coL, winning the match on just two maps and conceding 12 rounds.
The match began on de_nuke, where EG showed a strong CT side, going into the second half up 10-5. It was expected that coL would respond in the same way but EG had other plans, and so they set the score at 16-8 to take the lead in the tie.
On de_train, EG managed to start the map as CT and took complete advantage of that as they were up by seven rounds when switching sides. coL knew they had a mountain to climb in the second half but they could never find themselves, allowing their opponents to seal an impressive 16-4 win.
