Complexity Rolled over HEET

Complexity became the first CSGO team in ESL Pro League season 16’s Group C to reach six points following a 2-0 sweep against HEET. The North Americans had not defeated a European CSGO team in 2022 until the opening day, when they upset Astralis.

Then, they followed that up with a dominant victory against HEET’s all-French lineup. Complexity made quick work out of HEET on Nuke, which wasn’t even their map pick, thanks to a nearly perfect T side (7-2) in the second half of the game to take Nuke 16-8.

Complexity carried the momentum to Overpass and finished HEET 16-12 despite the French team’s best efforts to steal the map. The quartet of Justin “FaNg” Coakley, Michael “Grim” Wince, Ricky “floppy” Kemery, and Håkon “hallzerk” Fjærli dictated the actions throughout the series and each one of these players won rounds when Complexity needed them.

This victory over HEET leaves Complexity in an optimal place to take one of the three playoff spots available in Group C of EPL season 16. The North Americans led by the South African in-game leader Johnny “JT” Theodosiou will likely need to beat only one of ENCE, Heroic, and MOUZ to secure their spot in the playoffs.

HEET, on the other hand, are likely not going to advance to the playoffs after this loss to Complexity. They had already lost in their opening match to ENCE and would likely need to win three in a row to make the playoffs, which seems unlikely at the moment based on what they have shown in the tournament so far.

During the opening round, MOUZ defeated Heroic 2-0 in ESL Pro League season 16’s Group C following a close bout on Mirage and a breeze victory on Dust 2. This was the first time MOUZ fans got to watch them play with the team’s newest addition Dorian “xertioN” Berman, the Israeli youngster who was promoted from the academy team at the end of August to replace Aurimas “Bymas” Pipiras.

The roster change set the organization under fire in view of many CS:GO fans because Bymas had just helped the team qualify for IEM Rio Major Europe Regional Major Ranking (RMR). But xertioN was able to give fans a first glimpse of what he’s capable of after finishing the Heroic series as the highest-rated player in the server with 1.25 rating and a 48-36 K/D.

The clash on Mirage could have gone either way but it was MOUZ who claimed the victory by 16-14 thanks to a strong collective effort of Jon “JDC” de Castro, xertioN, Ádám “torzsi” Torzsás, and David “frozen” Čerňanský in the fragging department. Dust 2 on the other hand, was a far easier map for MOUZ. XertioN dominated Heroic from the get-go and helped his team win by 16-9 despite Heroic’s best efforts to come back in the second half.

Complexity vs MOUZ Prediction

As we have mentioned in some of our recent esports picks, Group C is one of the most competitive groups of EPL season 16 because it features ENCE and Astralis, who are heavy hitters like MOUZ and Heroic.

Even though Complexity picked up more wins than MOUZ in the first couple of days of the tournament, they are still not a team as solid as their German counterparts. Sure, this is one of the best Complexity performances we’ve seen not only recently, but in a really, really long time, and that got a lot of North American fans really excited.

But we have to be as objective as possible and highlight that there are still many visible weaknesses in the Complexity way of playing that a team like MOUZ could exploit, which is why they are the heavy favorites according to most CSGO betting sites.
