Popular Counter-Strike: Global Offensive commentator Henry ‘HenryG’ Greer made a “colossal error” while travelling to the StarLadder i-League Season 5 Finals, losing a number of important items.

The StarLadder i-League Season 5 Finals started on May 28th with a Swiss Style group stage. The $300,000 event will conclude on June 3rd and features some of the biggest names in CS:GO, including Na’Vi, SK Gaming, and Team Liquid.

A high profile event with high profile teams usually means a high profile broadcast team will go along with it and it doesn’t get much more high profile than the likes of Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields, Sean ‘[email protected]’ Gares, Henry ‘HenryG’ Greer, Anders Blume and co.

Unfortunately for one member of the on-air talent, HenryG, the event in Kiev, Ukraine, got off to the worst possible start before the Brit even made it to the studio.

Taking to Twitter on May 27th, HenryG stated that he had made a “colossal error” and that his backpack had been lost or stolen at the airport after he had landed in Ukraine.

This left the former Counter-Strike: Source professional without his laptop, mobile phone, or even his passport, but he made it clear that the show would go on.

HenryG initially believed that there was no British embassy in Kiev but a series of replies to his Twitter post from Team Secret’s Director of Operations, Matthew Bailey, put those concerns to rest.

We wish HenryG the best of luck in recovering his missing possessions and urge anyone that might have heard anything to get in contact with him.

From the ashes rise the phoenix: how Poizon helped Complexity upset the CS:GO pro scene.

With a history stretching as far back as 2013, Complexity Gaming have become one of the staple teams in the European CS:GO scene. However, CEO Jason Lake made the decision that 2020 was going to be the year Complexity became more than just a staple: they were here to dominate.

Picking up Valentin ‘poizon’ Vasilev from the tier 2 scene to add some precision to the squad in the AWS position. Although, some fans weren’t sure whether poizon was the player for the job.

The Blast Premier Spring 2020 Regular Season allowed poizon to show off his skills, ending in Complexity making it to second place, followed by a strong performance at DreamHack Open Anaheim.

This, coupled with a deal with ESL, secured a coveted place at ESL Pro League Season 11. Despite poizon being seriously injured, his prowess led to the team securing 10th to 12th place. This set them up beautifully for their dominant performance in the European finals, which they ultimately won due to insane plays from poizon.

It’s safe to say that poizon is Complexity’s secret weapon, and it’ll be exciting to watch his journey.
