compLexity Gaming have released Braxton "swag" Pierce from the squad, while Ryan "fREAKAZOiD" Abadir has been added as a temporary replacement.
compLexity Gaming have released information on their website stating that Braxton "swag" Pierce is no longer a member of their squad with no further explanation.
After coming home from a relatively successful campaign at EMS One Katowice where they finished in 5th-8th place following a 2-1 loss to NiP in the quarter-final, coL have become the third participant of the Polish tournament to suffer a lineup change, following in the footsteps of their fellow countrymen iBUYPOWER, as well as mousesports.
17-year-old Pierce was by most accounts the main star of the team in Katowice, putting up 0.81 kills per round for a 1.13 rating, especially doing well in the map-win over NiP (30:17, 1vs4 clutch), but in a surprising turn of events he will no longer be a member of the team.
Ryan "fREAKAZOiD" Abadir, previously member of Homeless and Frost Gaming, was added to compLexity's ESEA roster and according to Spencer "Hiko" Martin's tweet he will be playing for the North American squad only as a stand-in for the time being.
coL's roster is now:
Spencer "Hiko" Martin
Kory "semphis" Friesen
Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
Sean "sgares" Gares
Ryan "fREAKAZAOiD" Abadir (stand-in)
The roster change came at the last minute as compLexity's ESEA Invite Season 16 campaign is set to start this evening with a double header against Mediocre and RELiABLE Gaming.
