places 5th-6th @ IEM World Finals

BY Andrew Miesner / March 2, 2011


Unfortunately for CompLexity, Na`Vi proved to be too strong as they took it to the Brazilians in two maps, de_dust2 and de_train. With this loss, CompLexity is out of contention and will finish in the 5th/6th placing, taking home $2,500.

On de_dust2, Na`Vi dominated the first half, with coL dropping 13 out of the 15 rounds. Fortunately for coL, they managed to take the last round of the half which led to a string of 9 straight rounds in the second half. CompLexity managed to make the score 10-14, however Na`Vi put a stop to that and managed to secure the map.

On de_train, it was more of the same, as Na`Vi took a 13-2 first half once again, however this time could not mount a comeback, dropping the map by the score of 6-16.

Intel Extreme Masters 5 WC – Playoffs

After a grueling day of action, and an early one for the fans watching from the America’s, CompLexity Brazil has managed to advance to the playoff stage of the Intel Extreme Masters 5 World Championship in Hannover, Germany by placing 3rd in the group stage.

The day started out with coL taking it to UMX on de_inferno, however the same map would not provide the same result as coL fell to TCM only an hour later. Against FX, the Brazilians could not string together the rounds they needed to change the pace of the game and fell to the Poles by the one-sided score of 6-16. However, the second half of the day proved to be all coL as they managed to take down both M5 and the Danish powerhouse of mTw in convincing fashion.

With their final record of 3-2, coL has advanced to the playoffs behind mTw and FX and will take on Na`Vi tomorrow in round one. The match will be best of three and is set to begin at 3AM EST.
