Our first article is going to be about CS:GO and the ongoing ESL tournament in Cologne in August. It took a loss on Dust2 to bring Ninjas in Pyjamas for CS: GO quarterfinal against Complexity.
But then they showed why they are considered one of the world’s top teams when they relatively easily won two straight maps – and now await Dignitas in today’s semifinals.
US Complexity started strongly at first map Dust2. At halftime it was 11-4 for transatlantic engines and the lead would prove to be too much to take in when NiP switched to the terrorist side.
Swedes communication did not fully, something that shone through in a round where Complexitys Braxton “swag” Pierce stood for the match, perhaps the best performance when he alone against four NiP players managed to win the round. NiP took up to 12-15 before Complexity put the nail in the coffin to 12-16.
ESL one this year starts August 22 and all matches are streamed on Twitch.
