RLCS Fall Split Major preview – Part 4

Two years of waiting has led to this moment. NRG Esports’ iconic win over Team Vitality at the RLCS Season 8 World Championship in December 2019 was the last time fans saw international competition. From Dec. 8-12, that hiatus finally comes to an end with the RLCS 2021-2022 Fall Split Major in Stockholm, Sweden.

16 teams will qualify for the event. Two of them are from regions that have never before played on an international RLCS stage: Asia Pacific & the Middle East and North Africa. These regions finally have their chance to play among the greats, while North America, Europe, Oceania and South America will battle to see who improved most over the last two years. Will Team Vitality’s Alexandre “Kaydop” Courant play his seventh RLCS LAN Grand Final in a row, or can the South Americans of Complexity – coming through North American qualification – put a stop to that?

This is the RLCS Fall Split Major preview, Part 4. Part 1 covered NRG, Dignitas, Sandrock Gaming and Renegades, while Part 2 featured G2 Esports, Team BDS, Ground Zero Gaming and FURIA Esports. Over in Part 3, we went over FaZe Clan, Team Endpoint, eRa Eternity and Team Envy.

North America: Complexity

  • Facundo “Shad” Vallerino (Argentina)
  • Victor “Reysbull” Duran Parra (Chile)
  • Lautaro “ajg” Gusinsky (Argentina)

Complexity’s run is, without a doubt, the most incredible story of the season so far. The team, previously known as True Neutral, obliterated their opponents in the South American RLCS Season X. In a surprise move, they also announced their relocation to North America for 2021-22. Initially, they only did so in order to play in a tougher league and to improve as a team. But, after three regionals, it is the South American newcomers who pushed out last season’s No. 2 team – SpaceStation Gaming – to claim a spot in the RLCS Spring Split Major.
