compLexity add dephh & shinobi

compLexity have disclosed that Rory "dephh" Jackson from the United Kingdom and Josh "shinobi" Abastado, formerly a member of Denial, have joined coL.

Before the end of 2015, it was revealed that Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen and Timothy "autimatic" Ta were not going to be a part of coL in the upcoming year. These two players were sold to TSM and they formed a new lineup which consists of players from Canada and the USA.

Hunter "SicK" Mims and Ronnie "ryx" Bylicki were operating as stand-ins for coL but SicK joined the new TSM lineup and ryx did not end up becoming a permanent member of the roster. The lack of a stable five-man squad forced the team to withdraw from the MLG Americas Minor, passing up on their chance to earn a ticket to the MLG Colombus qualifier.


fRoD will play a pivotal role in this new lineup

The management decided to bring in 24-year-old Rory "dephh" Jackson from the United Kingdom in a suprising move, as dephh has only competed at local LANs and never at a big tournament.

Josh "shinobi" Abastado, the second addition, completes the lineup. He formerly played for teams such as Denial and Mortality. Like dephh, shinobi is also unproven as he has never participated at a big LAN event.

Danny "fRoD" Montaner, the 1.6 legend, has recently returned to the professional CS scene and his experience will be crucial to his teammates' development as they will aim to live up to the organization's reputation.

coL's new roster is:

United States Daniel "roca" Gustaferri
United States Danny "fRoD" Montaner
United States Joshua "sancz" Ballenger
United States Josh "shinobi" Abastado
United Kingdom Rory "dephh" Jackson

United States Matt "Warden" Dickens (Coach)

dephh's former team (CAZ) announced that they will be trialling with various players to replace him.

they announced dephh was going on a trial basis. nothing more, only to see if he was a good fit, as for shinobi they didnt say anything
2016-02-06 01:32
Wasn't officially announced. It was "reported" but UKCSGO signaled that it was still "rumour" at the time. As stich said, org officially confirmed it last night.

If you know anything about coL.cs it's about young talent sticking together and rising to the top. They will need time.. If they last :P
2016-02-06 09:14
shoulda got surreal if they're giving the uk a go, he at least carried his team to a lan win and he has the same high rws(lol) if they were after a pug star seems pretty sad that they didn't let roca join another team and wanted to build around him with a team that looks so bad on paper
2016-02-06 07:13
Did you watch iseries at all he didn't carry us jesus fuck people really needed to watch our games that lan ......
2016-02-06 08:21
He carries pugs though so that's he same right?!
2016-02-06 09:16
that am why he left u noobs after carry.
