CompLexity Removes Counter Strike Team
DALLAS, TEXAS -- After a disappointing fourth place finish at the ESEA LAN Finals, CompLexity has removed their Counter Strike team with no new team in sight.
Complexity – one of the two G7 teams from North America – has released their Counter-Strike 1.6 team, best known for their numerous online tournament wins in events like CEVO as well as a win at the ESEA Invite S4 finals.
They were the first American team to take top three at an international event, since the CGS's demise in late 2008 at DreamHack Winter 2009.
However, they were also plagued with roster trouble – first losing long time member David “savior” Park and picking up Scott "evolution" Cavallero before dropping him in place of Gravitas starter Thomas "thoMz" Garcia.
This roster managed to stay stable and pick up a ESEA Invite win as well as a strong 3rd place at DreamHack final before making another roster move, releasing Jeff “Hero” Mettetal and picking up another Gravitas/Turmoil player, Derrick “Impulsive” Truong.
“Despite the fact that we experienced some success, internal issues always seemed to derail the squad’s momentum. All of the players are great people who are very skilled at the game, but the championship passion and chemistry that defines the compLexity name has eluded us. We are currently evaluating the scene and are considering both American and European options to replace the current roster. We wish the players the very best with everything, both in and out of game.”
“It's been a pleasure getting to know the guys over the past year,” said Alex Conroy, the organization’s CDO.
“They all possess the raw talent required to win in this game. Unfortunately, we feel there are some issues outside of pure talent that will prevent this squad from reaching the top podium on the international scene. Our fans have come to expect the best from compLexity and it has always been our solemn goal to deliver on that expectation. We look forward to presenting a squad of compLexity pedigree in and out of game. Good luck to all of the players, they are all fantastic individuals in their own right."
