After three months of excitement and fun, Trinity Series has come to an end this weekend when the new champions compLexity were crowned. The semi-final matches and the final match of the Trinity Series saw a lot of drama and unexpected turns which made this tournament even more interesting than anyone could have anticipated.
Before the main event, Luminosity Gaming were the biggest favorites for the win, and by going through the upper bracket without a single defeat, everyone expected them to perform very well and the final two matches of the series. Even though Luminosity managed to win against compLexity already in the earlier stages of the competition, they failed to do so in the final match. For compLexity, this their first major title since Jan ‘SuperJJ’ Janssen managed to win at the SeatStory Cup IV that was held all the way back in November 2015.
compLexity Fights Adversity To The Title
The road towards the title for compLexity was not an easy one. They have struggled a lot during the group stage and as it turns out they barely managed to reach the playoff for the Trinity Series final event. During the group stage, compLexity finished in the fourth place, and they managed to advance only on the basis of the tiebreaker score. Because of that, they had to face Team Liquid in the semi-final match, and it did not look good for them.
In the final match, Luminosity started strong, and they won in the first two opening series which enabled them to have a very comfortable position before the Trinity Series’ Last Hero Standing format. Usually, when a team starts the match with two consecutive wins, it means that the teams will win the match. However, that did not happen in this match. After those first two opening series, compLexity was faced with a tough task of winning two consecutive games with Hunter who would be facing RenoLock and Freeze Mage. Before the final event, this was accomplished only once during the three months. However, this was exactly what compLexity did, and from that moment it was clear to everyone that we will be witnessing something great in that match.
CompLexity’s road to the title was not a simple but after overcoming all the obstacles, they managed to win the title, and it was more than deserved. Jan ‘SuperJJ’ Janssen, Simon ‘Crane’ Raunholst and Tugay ‘MrYagut’ Evsan have managed to pull off the biggest comebacks at the Hearthstone eSports tournaments, and the will be going home with $75,000 deservingly. Coming back from 0-2 and wining the series with 6-4 was not something that anyone could have expected – except the compLexity’s players.
In the end, Trinity Series proved to be a very interesting competition that introduced the new format of the Hearthstone eSports league, and during the past three months, we had the opportunity to witness the drama, amazing plays, disappointments, and happiness. All in all, Trinity Series has brought in something that Hearthstone eSports competitions were lacking recently – and that is the sense of novelty. Today, after Trinity Series has finished, we can say that it will be very unusual without and that Trinity Series will be very missed. Until the next year!
