Complexity’s CS:GO team made a massive mistake during an ECS match against ATK to lose a 1v4 for the game.

In the 30th round of a game on Nuke, Complexity looked set to comfortably force overtime after securing a four-versus-one, but a major mistake cost them both the round and the game.

With four members of Complexity alive with full control of the upper bomb site, the situation looked impossible for ATK’s Johnny ‘JT’ Theodosiou, until a series of errors by the terrorist side gave him an opening.

Having just cleaned up two kills, ‘dephh’ made his way into the A site, but as he opened the door he swung his knife, and accidentally stabbed his teammate in the back. At the exact same moment, JT appeared from the vents, and got a quick double-kill on the lined up and now weakened Complexity players.

ESLShahZam was stabbed in the back by his teammate.

To make matters even worse, dephh had been carrying the bomb, and with only seven seconds left on the clock the remaining Complexity members had to scramble were left without enough time to retrieve and plant it.

JT was able to make a quick escape through the door and shut it behind him, leaving him safe for long enough to run down the time and win the game, despite a last-second effort by Will ‘RUSH’ to chase the final kill.

Complexity aren’t the first team to make a massive, game-losing mistake on Nuke in recent memory. The most infamous example came at the StarLadder Berlin Major, when G2 Esports lost the final round to Astralis with four players alive after they failed to defuse the bomb.

Unfortunately for Complexity, in this case the mistake proved rather costly, as ATK dominated the following game on Inferno to take the series 2-0 and advance to the grand final of the Series 4 ECS stage, where they will face Team Liquid.

Janko ‘YNk’ Paunović has stepped down as the head coach of FaZe Clan’s CSGO team following the transfer of Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač to G2 Esports.

YNk cited issues within the team and wanted to step aside as FaZe will be looking to build up their lineup again, which still features highly-talented players even with the exit of their Bosnian star.

“For a while now the team has been struggling with some recurring issues in and out of the game which I’ve done my best to try and amend but unfortunately without much success,” YNk said. “I feel that the best way to move forward is for the team and myself to part ways and, with NiKo going to G2, give the players and the organization the opportunity to get a new coach and IGL who can work on taking the team forward.”

The former MiBR and FaZe coach also indicated that he’s going to break from coaching CSGO for the rest of 2020, and left the next year open-ended.

YNk has stepped down from FaZe after joining in early 2019.

A player and broadcaster before his coaching career, YNk leaves the org in the same month his team beat OG Esports 3-0 in the EU Intel Extreme Masters New York Online grand finals. Last week, they placed 9th at the DreamHack Open Fall 2020.

YNk has been with the team since the beginning of 2019. While they managed to put good results together at various BLAST events and some online tourneys in 2020, FaZe struggled to put up consistent performances against top teams.

YNk is stepping aside in a pivotal moment for FaZe Clan’s roster. Longtime face of the org’s CSGO team, Niko, has moved on from FaZe, and the coach will stand down to let them make something out of the stars still on roster like Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David, Håvard ‘rain’ Nygaard, Markus ‘Kjaerbye’ Kjærbye, and rising talent Helvijs ‘broky’ Saukants.

YNk and NiKo both parted ways with FaZe Clan.

As more CSGO events and competitors continue to either migrate or revolve around EU, YNk could still have prospects in the competitive or broadcasting sides of the scene.

Once a team with superstar players in every role, FaZe is now on the market to fill up their roster to standard capacity, as the latest shakeups leave them without a fifth member and a head coach to take the reigns.
