ptr joins compLexity, desi becomes free agent

Striker
August 10th, 2017 22:45

Peter "ptr" Gurney has joined up with compLexity, replacing Derek "desi" Branchen, who was released from the organization.

Peter "ptr" Gurney has been a free agent since parting ways with NRG, where he had played for nearly two years, following the team's disappointing runs at DreamHack Open stops in Valencia and Atlanta.

It didn't take long for him to find his new home, as the AWPer joins up with compLexity, who themselves had mixed results with their previous lineup, most recently placing fourth at Fragadelphia 11 after a loss to Bee's Money Crew featuring Joshua "steel" Nissan.

ptr finds a new home in compLexity

Departing compLexity is Derek "desi" Branchen, who played under the American organization's banner since January, when he replaced Cory "APE" Bate.

The new roster of compLexity looks as follows:

United Kingdom Rory "dephh" Jackson
United States Peter "ptr" Gurney
Canada Bradley "ANDROID-X23" Fodor
United States Alec "Slemmy" White
United States Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker

United States Matt "Warden" Dickens (coach)

WTF. This is unexpected. Desi sounded pretty normal in JasonR stream in the morning, and didn't sound like he was gonna get kicked, or sound concerned at all. He even played with a Complexity pic.

He's primarily a rifler, they picked him up because they saw potential in him and he said he'd try to awp. He's not actually an awper.

They were talking about it at Fragadelphia, and explained that he isn't actually an awper but he was going to try to fill that role for the team. Go look through the VOD's if you like.

Probably not what you're looking after but still... hltv.org/stats/players/weapon/8513/yay He looks like a strong hybrid player for T3. Plus, if you give it a closer look, you'll see that most of his awp kills were done in the past three months, showing that he's good in adapting to it and equally decent with an AK on hands. hltv.org/stats/players/weapon/8513/yay?s..

Never said he wasn't, just said he's not a primary. He's a secondary awper, he's much better on the rifles. He'll have a REAL chance to shine now under his new role.

because yay is going to rifle more I would assume. At frag he was an absolute monster with the ak/m4.
