compLexity unveil new team

compLexity have announced that they have ventured into Counter-Strike again with the signing of the team known as Maximum Effort.

Once a household name in the Counter-Strike scene, compLexity had been without a team to support since July 2014, when their roster was acquired by Cloud9.

After looking at opportunities to return to the game for the last 12 months, the North American organisation finally made a move when they learned about the availability of the ex-Nihilum roster, which had been playing under the name Maximum Effort.


SEMPHIS to wear coL's shirt once again 

Spencer "Hiko" Martin, who has been trying out for Team Liquid, and Derek "desi" Branchen will not be making the move to compLexity, with ex-Tempo Storm duo Daniel "roca" Gustaferri and Timothy "autimatic" Ta stepping into their shoes.

"We couldn’t be happier to be back in CS:GO," compLexity founder and CEO, Jason Lake, said in a statement. "Our love for the franchise is what lead to compLexity’s formation and we’re humbled and honored to be a part of the game once again.

"We’re also very excited to announce our new roster and eager to tackle the challenges ahead.

"Everyone involved understands that the division will be a work in progress, but developing talent and building champions are areas in which we excel.

"With the return of Matt “Warden” Dickens to the compLexity family, expectations are high. Dedication, passion, time and patience will lead to big trophies. Bank on it."

compLexity's new team will make their first official appearance for the organisation in just a few hours' time as they will take on Team Liquid in CEVO Professional. The team's lineup consists of:

United States Soham "valens" Chowdhury
United States Joshua "sancz" Ballenger
Canada Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen
United States Daniel "roca" Gustaferri
United States Timothy "autimatic" Ta 

United States Matt "Warden" Dickens (coach)

negotiating salary, the players he will be playing with. professional players should be professional and work with people they dislike or are not friends with.
2015-08-24 23:04
negotiating salary what actually do you know about it? i hope that you didnt take that news from rlewis seriously.that guy has no clue about it and both sides said that it isnt true at all
2015-08-24 23:09

Brazil lgzn 
i don't but it sounds really awkward multiple sources saying otherwise. besides, isn't him a high tier caliber player? why he doesn't have a team then or, rather, joined teams with high financial advantages? everyone knew that the nihilum squad he joined wasn't capable of achieving anything which leads me to believe he joined to make money as opposed to win something.
2015-08-24 23:48
multiple sources saying otherwise external sources.both internal sources(hiko+team) said that it isnt true.why should i believe to external sources in the first place? the rest of your post is completely irrelevant to that point with negotiating salary

haha do you honestly think hiko or anyone else would do that bad of PR move exposing what really happens on the back stage? would his general supporters and fans keep on support him if they knew from Hiko himself he is a money whore? i think not.
2015-08-25 00:05
i actually couldnt care less about it but you stated it as a fact but this is only RUMOR from people with NO INSIGHT AT ALL. show me single evidence for this claiming and i will shut up:D

i never said i am stating a fact lol, i don't even said whether i read or heard it from A B or C. it's basically my opinion over his decisions. aside of filling for F3 in ESWC and beating NiP hiko isn't relevant to the competitive scene since he left C9. the reasons behind his decisions? well, it's not that hard to figure out.
2015-08-25 00:11
i never said i am stating a fact lol: "Sad to see a talent wasting his time due to greed" "How is he being greedy?" "negotiating salary" you actually wrote it like its something confirmed and you used it as an argument but its only rumor and nothing more

well, that's your way to interpretate but these are my own opinions. i never said that they were facts.
2015-08-25 00:24
how can you use opinion as an argument? thats my point.if you would write something like: "from what i heard" or "imo he is greedy tard because of this or that" or whatsoever but from form in which you wrote it,it looks like something confirmed,something what is fact:)

lol i am not a journalist or a reporter. writing something using your alias to identify yourself is enough to state that whatever you write are your personal analysis/opinions/whatever you want to call them. i am not providing any breaking news or anything but just my own analysis of the results Hiko have been achieving since he left C9. None.
2015-08-25 00:28
Hiko have been achieving since he left C9. None. but how is this relevant to my point? and honestly if you want to argue with someone,you should use only confirmed things as an arguments/facts.if you want to only express your own OPINION which actually isnt based on nothing which is confirmed,you should atleast wrote it that way... i guess that its pointless to continue in this.i just wanted to know where do you have this info from(that he is greedy) and i know the answer now

kinda funny of you replying to my opinions then. first i never said i was backed with FACTS or EVIDENCE but only my own judgement and analysis combined with what many other people say about him. I do think he is a money whore and I do believe he is serving his time out of the competitive scene due to the poor choices he made in order to be part of the money club. It's not wrong to earn some money doing what you like to do but if you're too greedy without showing results or waiting the perfect thing to happen then this is what happens when you realize you're not in control.
2015-08-25 00:37
Dude why are you arguing with this guy? Looking at everything he has said, he's clearly stupid as fuck. "RLewis iz nefr right". Hmm,I wonder who knew about the iBP scandal months before they were banned. You're also a little stupid calling him greedy - it's called fair. But never the less, continue as you see fit
2015-08-25 09:38
If the players ever form a union and need a union rep, Hiko would be the perfect guy for the job. Why? Because even his self-promotions are geared towards helping all the players. That's what's at the root of his decisions. That, and wanting to be competitive. Even he's said that personality conflicts can always get worked out. That wasn't why he left C9. Why he did is why he wanted to get a super team together with Skadoodle, and why he wanted to join Nihilum: be surrounded by players hungry to win, and to promote players rights (incl. salaries), within the scene.

that might be partially true to an extent but i find hard to believe anyone, specially him, being that of a samaritan. hope Hiko proves me wrong, it would be great to see him relevant again but it seems that he has a long road ahead. though what he says seems cool and crispy his results says otherwise.
2015-08-25 00:33
How is negotiating salary bad? Have you ever actually held a job before... Are you telling me hiko isnt worth more than his team? Obviously ex Nihilum wasnt going anywhere so why stick around. When your as old and have accomplished as much as Hiko has why settle for less? And if he cant make a great team why not join a mediocre team but get payed more for your services. Its like saying Christiano Ronaldo is worth the same as some shitty back up player.

Brazil lgzn 
well, i am finance manager for a big, leading, US IT company based in Kansas City so yeah I know a thing or two about what i am talking about. i am sorry if my point wasn't entirely clear but judging Hiko's past choices he preferred financial stability over the chance of winning championships and be meaningful again. If I were as talented as Hiko I'd rather join/form a team who could win and then look for support/compensation after results. thing is that many companies are investing heavily in CSGO so many bad teams (ie Liquid) are getting paid to get thrashed.
2015-08-24 23:51
Would you say you work in a competitive field? Why wouldn't you negotiate your salary to a potential employer if you knew you could get payed more, especially if you consider yourself to be better than your competition. Unless esports is communist I cant see why it would be so unreasonable, since in real sports player salaries vary greatly based on worth.
2015-08-25 01:18
Hiko has a personal beef with c9. For example he wanted stunna fired. That's why he isn't rejoining that team. The other american teams are all equally shit so I don't know what you want from him.
2015-08-26 09:37
Hiko has a small stretch of time to make money in esports, he would be an idiot to not make as much money as he can. Just like in any major sport, players always go through contract negotiation to make as much as they can.
2015-08-25 01:23

2015-08-24 21:37
I thought jlake would be smarter than to give a trash heap like Semphis money.
2015-08-24 21:37
What are you talking about? This isn't the first time Semphis has been on a compLexity roster.
2015-08-24 21:39
And? He chews. No team he's been at the front of has played to the standard that its talent and experience would lead most to believe it was capable of. Can't stop force buying. Can't stop peeking. Can't stop pushing. Can't stop baiting on retakes. Can't stop losing. All of the above have come to define what Semphis is and what becomes of teams he's been on since after Cologne 2014. Semphis is a loser. And not in the "can't get a seat at the cool kid's table" way. But in the "unable to identify mistakes and address them in a productive manner for the betterment of he and his team" way. The first one is a wash. There are lots of cliques and groups and crews in NA CS and most of them don't want anything to do with each other. The latter is death. It kills good teams. It's what happened to NLM after Semphis and Hiko joined. Taking a good roster of solid players with great comms and fantastic ideas of how to implement new meta and turning it into exactly what C9 was at the end: A waste of time and talent through those involved being told it was okay to make a part time effort when they were getting full time pay and access to resources. Why even bother when better could have been done. Not just for value for money, but for ability to net results in the short term and potential to improve and climb the ladder in the long term.

Anyone else wondering why a good organization like coL picks up a shit team like this?
2015-08-24 21:40
Because they don't have the $ and sponsors to compete with the top gaming orgs. It's sad because coL used to always be the top org for CS, but now that the game is really popular, other orgs with more $ (c9, tsm, liquid, etc.) have already sponsored the best teams.

I've always supported coL since their early CS 1.6 days (graphx and bullseye), but it's going to be really hard to support this team with semphis the snitch and valens the cheater.
2015-08-24 21:46
CS1.6 cheaters are now playing professional CSGO. ^hades...cheated on xquizit... cr0tex aka valens(i guess?)... cheated in xquizit... Semphis originally from xquizit and now playing with cr0t3x... n@ice bro
2015-08-24 21:55
lol yep... Can't believe I'd live to see the day when TeamUSA/Perplexed/Xquizit cr0tex was playing on coL... Also, you forgot that roca used to cheat and Semphis does amphetamines all day to lose weight and be good at CS.

2015-08-24 22:21
To be honest, -valens +Warden would be a great move. Can igl ingame and tbh is a fairly sick player. Too bad that stupid Indian gets to play the game longer than he should..
2015-08-24 22:21
that team is bad, unfortunate
2015-08-24 22:21
Potential top 3 NA(if you count LG as a NA team)
2015-08-24 22:24
I cant believe that I'll be rooting against complexity... semphis does not deserve to represent this organization.
2015-08-24 22:27
FailFish Did you root against the coL lineup that attended DHW13 and Katowice 14?
2015-08-24 23:16
Hell no. I was a MAJOR fan. I donated quite a bit to all of the players (semphis included). I would wake up to cheer them on at the euro tourneys. This was all before the light was shed on how much of a negative impact semphis was having on the squad.. in and out of game. Any logical person that analyzed the bootcamp streams, the voicecoms, the players own words would arrive at that conclusion. Dazed couldn't play with him, swag couldn't play with him.. now he's going to bring that culture to one of the most prestigious names in counter-strike. I see he's one of your favorite players. I used to think it was sick when he would repeak awpers and headshot them too but now everybody knows to watch for that when they are up against his teams. tl;dr: im the biggest 1.6 / csgo coL fan but semphis brings a losing culture and 2 of NA BEST players chose not to play with him.

nais org, with rip lineup ggs
2015-08-24 22:50
If all the original Nihilum members that left get the roles there comfortable with back this team could be dangerous, even hiko admitted him and semphis joining fucked with the team roles and chemistry.
2015-08-24 22:53
-jdm +ptr unpopular opinion i know, but at least ptr can shoot an ak.
2015-08-24 23:54
Well it was ptr that said fuck you and left. He got pretty butthurt when he found out clg wanted ska. Whether he joins the team depends on him I think.
2015-08-25 01:20
No Semphis joined didn't really fuck with the chemisty or roles. They dropped flowsick, the entry, and added Semphis as an entry. Then when Hiko joined and they dropped P_C the roles got completely fucked. You can see they like Semphis and he likes them because they're still on a team, whereas Hiko is not.
2015-08-25 01:21
I'm just going off of what Hiko said in the Half Time show with Steel, since that is the only real proof we have. He said that he was happy getting a bitch role but that valens insisted him and semphis get the roles they want and as a result the remaining Nihilum members including automatic felt spiteful and bitter, which ultimately led to him leaving. Again I'm only going off what hiko said, I don't know if there is anyone elses testimony that says differently.
2015-08-25 01:30
Its not testimony, its taking what people say with a grain of salt. Hiko, who now has changed teams like what 4 times in the past 12 months, says that its not his fault he got the roles that he wanted and that other players resented him for it. Like, what? Not denying hes a good player, but he destroyed Nihilum by making them drop their AWPer for him and then creating tension in the team - although its never poor Hiko's fault.
2015-08-25 02:20
what is that lineup :oo
2015-08-24 22:54
Isn't warden going around like... coaching everyone? Started with coaching Team Liquid.
2015-08-24 22:56
eLevate -> Liquid -> Tempo Storm -> compLexity
2015-08-24 23:15
He didn't coach eLevate so SHUT THE FUCK UP.
2015-08-25 05:10
2015-08-25 05:20
Yeah, but he didn't coach shit there and was picked up by TL pretty damn fast. By that I mean that he didn't attend 1 LAN with the team.
2015-08-25 09:33
It seems like they wont really make much of an impact with that roster. I expect it would be reasonable to sustain any costs if they're only attending domestic tournaments but if they start to qualify for international events things will start getting expensive pretty quickly. Interesting jlake. Always been one for underdog teams.
2015-08-24 22:58

2015-08-24 22:59
