Complexity - Latest performance & results
After poizon's health failure, Complexity had big problems in his absence. With numerous stand-ins, the team really struggled through the first tournaments of the year. However, the results were not really satisfactory. At the IEM Global Challenge, the BLAST Global Finals and the cs_summit 7, the team lost six games in a row and was eliminated in all three events with 0:2 in the group phase.
At the BLAST Premier Spring Groups, however, the big relief followed. AWP poizon returned after his health-related break and was back on the server. Expectations for the team were not high at the beginning, but Complexity surprised both experts and spectators. With 6-0 in maps and three wins in a row, Complexity clearly qualified for the BLAST Spring Finals in duels with Evil Geniuses , Vitality and G2 .
After the unbelievable successes the team had even reached the second place of the EsportFire World Ranking in the meantime. The lineup came to the IEM Katowice 2021 play-ins with high expectations and everyone anticipated a commanding entry into the main event. However, the games did not go according to plan. The team surrounding IGL blameF finally was eliminated from the qualifier with a 1-2 loss against Mousesports . Despite the sobering results at the IEM Katowice, Complexity goes into the duel with FunPlus Phoenix as the favorite in view of the odds.
FPX - Latest performance & results
After the commitment of the Heroic roster failed in 2020, the Chinese organization FunPlus Phoenix
decided to try once again to enter CS:GO in 2021. On Jan. 25, 2021, they managed to do so with the signing of the GODSENT
roster. Shortly before, however, the lineup decided to remove IGL kRYSTAL from the team. Soon after the announcement of the new signings, chrisJ
was added as a stand-in. In total, the experienced Dutchman played with the team for around 2 months and was able to celebrate first minor successes.
After a second place at the DreamHack Open January, FunPlus Phoenix won the Snow Sweet Snow #1 and a final match in a duel with the later Katowice 2021 winner Gambit . However, chrisJ could not agree on a contract with the organization and thus left the team at the beginning of March. As a replacement for the Dutchman, Finn suNny will compete with the team in ESL Pro League Season 13. The 26-year-old IGL already played for Mousesports and ENCE , among others, and could celebrate some big successes in his career.
The last official game of the lineup was at the Snow Sweet Snow 1 and thus about one month ago. With IGL suNny the team will perform for the first time at the ESL Pro League. In the duel with Complexity , FunPlus Phoenix is in the underdog role given the odds, but definitely has potential to surprise with a good performance.
Complexity vs. FPX - Map-Veto prediction
The map veto is difficult to predict due to the long game-free period of the two lineups and can vary greatly. As bans, Vertigo and Mirage are likely. Between Complexity and FunPlus Phoenix , the tip regarding maps is Overpass and Mirage. As deciders Nuke and Train would be conceivable.
