Complexity vs Heroic Predictions


Complexity and Heroic will lock horns on Thursday, May 2, in the group stage of ESL Pro League Season 19. It’ll mark their second meeting of the season and the first since PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: Elimination Stage when Complexity won.

Counter-Strike bookmakers have Heroic priced as 1.66 favourites to defeat Complexity, who enter the match as 2.10 underdogs. Even though Complexity defeated Heroic the last time these two teams met, Heroic have looked better in their recent outings, which explains the offered price.

  • Complexity are 2-3 over their last four games
  • Heroic have won three of their last five series
  • Heroic (#10) are higher rated than Complexity (#13)

Head to Head


Complexity last met with Heroic during PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: Elimination Stage, when they won.

  • Complexity 19-17 Heroic – March 21, 2024

Complexity Form


Complexity showed some signs of life in late 2023, but since the start of the new year, they’ve not achieved much success. Early into the year, Complexity placed ninth-12th at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024, and while they successfully qualified for the Major, Complexity ended the tournament in ninth-11th place.

In Compexity’s defence, they had a very tough schedule in Copenhagen. They first defeated paiN Gaming and Heroic but lost the final three games of the Elimination Stage against MOUZ (0-2), Team Vitality (1-2), and FaZe Clan (0-2).

Since then, Complexity have played just one official game – in the opening round of ESL Pro League Season 19 – when they defeated Pera Esports with 13-11 and 13-9. Even though Complexity ended up winning the game, they dropped 20 rounds against a much weaker Counter-Strike esports team, which doesn’t look too promising.

Complexity Squad & Team News


No changes for Complexity.

Heroic Form


Like Complexity, Heroic have not won a single Counter-Strike esports tournament this year, and like Complexity, they’ve only achieved middling success. Heroic placed seventh-eighth at IEM Katowice 2024, fifth-eighth at BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2024, and in March, exited the Major in 12th-14th place.

Before ESL Pro League Season 19, Heroic also attended Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024, where they got eliminated in the final round of the group stage and the Esports World Cup 2024: European Open Qualifier, where Heroic crashed out in 17th-32nd-place.

Similarly to Complexity, Heroic have produced some good games but also have a handful of disappointing performances to their name, overall showing a high degree of inconsistency.

Heroic Squad & Team News


No new changes for Heroic.

  • Rasmus "sjuush" Beck
  • Guy "NertZ" Iluz
  • Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi
  • Damjan "kyxsan" Stoilkovski

Verdict

Heroic look like a stronger team, and they arguably are capable of much more than the North American squad. However, all that means very little knowing that Heroic haven’t produced anything exceptional over the last few months – at least, they’ve not shown anything more than Complexity.

The two teams also looked equally as unconvincing in their ESL Pro League Season 19 openers. This looks like a coin-flip match, making Complexity a better choice.
