Topic: CS:GO Complexity signing new roster
On 18.01.2021 Complexity announced their new roster consisting of floppy, Grim, junior, FaNg, JT and coach T.c. The organisation was looking for a new lineup for quite some time and came close to agreeing with Copenhagen Flames as previously reported! Everything´s set and done now!
Complexity decided to sign a new, NA based, CS:GO roster. JT, FaNg, floppy and coach T.c are signed from Extra Salt, while Grim joins from Liquid. Junior completes the lineup!
Check out the full article with more information below!
Complexity was founded in 2003 and is one of the oldest Esport organizations. With teams in CS, CS:S and CS:GO, Complexity has always participated in international tournaments of the scene. While the various lineups consisted exclusively of American and Canadian players for many years, the organization decided to sign up an international lineup in 2019.
In total, the legendary organization already had around 40 players and coaches under contract in its CS:GO section. The total prize money is around 1.5 million dollars and probably the biggest success so far was a victory at the BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 European Finals, where they were able to defeat Vitality in the final with 2:1.
The new team
With floppy, FaNg and JT three players already played together under Extra Salt. Also part of the lineup was Coach T.c, who was signed by Complexity as well. While IGL JT was signed in previous years by ATK as well as Cloud9 and thus could already gain experience in a larger organization, FaNg was playing his first bigger events with Extra Salt.
The 22-year-old American floppy was together with JT already at ATK and Cloud9 and convinced regularly with exceptionally good performances! Unfortunately, however, he was not able to find a suitable offer in CS:GO after the end of Cloud9 and decided to continue his career in the VALORANT section of Cloud9. On 10.10.2021, however, he announced the end of his time at Cloud9 and a little later the commitment to Extra Salt!
While Grim was able to gain experience at one of the largest NA organizations in the world for more than a year, junior's last year didn't quite go according to plan. The American was unable to make his mark at FURIA and returns to the big stage after a loan to Bad News Bears! He will do everything to prove himself in his new team and we are convinced that he will do just that.
Overall a great signing for the European/North American organisation who are "Coming back home" as stated on their official Twitter announcement. Jason Lake and Complexity are once again representing the North American region and will try to form a world class team out of five, rather young, talented individuals.
We wish them all the best and are excited for the first events and look forward to their performances in 2022! If you want to see the official announcement video check it out here.
