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.

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:
