Complexity - Latest performance & results
Complexity is a top international team that hired the Australian jks as a replacement for oBo at the end of 2020 and thus found a worthy fifth player. The team around IGL blameF has had mixed results lately, but in any case they have the potential to play alongside the world's top teams.
In the duel with Astralis Complexity is the clear underdog in view of the odds. However, this is not due to the fact that the mixed team is basically without chances, but because of poizen, the main-awp of Complexity.

This makes it extremely unprofitable to bet on the game between Astralis and Complexity. The chances of an underdog win are very small and the odds of Astralis betting on a win are around 1.15.
