compLexity Gaming destroyed one of the favorite Chinese teams in the tournament. The North American team was able to outplay LGD with fantastic plays and decision making. compLexity was able to continue to put more and more pressure on the Chinese team and bring them to defeat with mega creeps at 46 minutes.
Despite having 930 pro-games as an organization, @LGDgaming has never made a comeback after the enemy has secured megacreeps.

Shanghai Major elimination: Lower Brackets
LGD Gaming vs. compLexity Gaming
The elimination series between these two teams was filled with back and forth action for the early-mid game. Once compLexity Gaming were able to swing the aegis and secure a team wipe in mid game, they were able to start bringing a significant advantage in their direction. Rasmus “Chessie” Blomdin was a beast on Lone Druid, having only died once and Kyle “swindlemelonzz” Freedman’s Tide Hunter was instrumental in team fights.
Shanghai Major results: LGD 0:1 compLexity. compLexity Gaming continues in the Lower Brackets, after getting LGD eliminated from the event.
