coL set to move to Cloud9 - Report
According to dailydot.com, compLexity's CS:GO team are set to join Cloud9 once their contracts expire.
Even though compLexity were shaky on the North American scene, after qualifying for ESEA Invite Season 16 Global Finals by the skin of their teeth, they suprised by defeating NiP, Virtus.pro and Natus Vincere on their way to second place.
Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert's team's contracts at compLexity will supposedly expire on August 2nd, and despite the organization's efforts including an annual salary, Gilbert and company look to be set to move to Cloud9.
Hiko & co could be playing under a new tag at the next major
Cloud9 have started as a League of Legends team only, but soon started venturing into other titles such as DotA 2 and Hearthstone. This time it looks like they will be acquiring a CS:GO team.
According to compLexity's manager Jason Bass, the move is already set in stone as Cloud9 offered a better deal than the opposition:
"We made an offer for a new annual salary weeks ago but the players informed us Cloud9 made a better one," Bass told dailydot.com.
"We wish the players and Cloud9 nothing but the best. We enjoyed having them as a part of compLexity. They are very talented and we're glad they found a new home moving forward."
The last roster compLexity used in the CEVO-P match against Area51 is following:
Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
Spencer "Hiko" Martin
Kory "semphis" Friesen
Mike "shroud" Grzesiek
Sean "sgares" Gares
Gilbert's team's LAN debut with the new roster and potentially under the new tag is going to be ESL One Cologne, which will run from August 14-17.
