In Group B, there is still one more playoff team to be discovered.
Complexity defeated Virtus.pro in a three-map series, securing a playoff berth. Dzhami “Jame” won with a score of 16-10. Despite playing with a stand-in, Complexity defeated Ali’s squad 16-14 on Dust2 and Overpass to upset the world No. 5.
Benjamin “blameF” Bremer, who had a 1.27 rating and 16 first kills – the most in the series – was instrumental in Complexity’s triumph. “I think blameF is taking up a lot more space because k0nfig isn’t here and doing a great job at it,” Justin “jks” Savage stated in the post-match interview, praising his in-game leader’s performance so far.

Complexity has already won three of its four matches at the event, putting G2 out of contention for the playoffs. One of the Pro League’s favorites enters the fourth round of matches without a win, and can now only act as a spoiler for the other clubs in group B.
On the first map of the series, Virtus.pro had a relatively easy path to victory. The CIS team entered Complexity’s map selection with a meager 12 percent win rate on Mirage but came out on top 16-10. Virtus.pro led 10-5 at halftime and went on to win the map with a five-round streak capped by a 2v4 won by Jame and Sanjar “SANJI” Kuliev.
On Dust2, Complexity jumped out to a 3-0 lead on defense, but Virtus.pro quickly regained control. Their powerful T side was led by Timur “buster” Tulepov, who had a 17-8 K-D in the first half. The majority-Danish side, on the other hand, did not flinch, regaining control of the game with a solid start to their offense and edging out a 16-14 victory in a tough contest.
On Overpass, the CIS squad got off to a slow start. Their pistol round success was quickly countered by a Complexity force-buy, who racked up an 11-4 T side lead owing to a slew of unfavorable rounds won. Jame’s triple in the pistol provided Virtus.pro a lifeline, allowing them to make a surprising offensive come back and take the lead at 14-13. Complexity won 16-14 thanks to a 1v2 clutch by Niels Christian “NaToSaphiX” Sillassen and a blameF ace.
