compLexity sign APE, release witmer
compLexity have officially signed Cory 'APE' Bate, formerly of Kaliber and a stand-in for compLexity at Northern Arena this past weekend, while also releasing Shawn 'witmer' Taylor from the lineup.
The first sign of changes in the compLexity lineup arose before Northern Arena, when it was revealed that the team's American player Shawn "witmer" Taylor would be unable to attend the event because of personal issues and that the team would bring Cory "APE" Bate of Kaliber as a stand-in instead.
This compLexity lineup surprised many by managing to defeat Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez's Rogue in the Group C decider match and by also taking Echo Fox to a close 2-1 series in the quarter-finals of the $100,000 event.

After the event, rumours began to swirl that APE was not just a stand-in for Northern Arena but that the 24-year-old Canadian would officially join the roster and replace 20-year-old witmer, who has been with the team since early March after he replaced Danny "fRoD" Montaner on the lineup.
compLexity's lineup has now lost its American flavour and looks as follows:
