We talked to Rory "dephh" Jackson following compLexity's surprising run to the playoffs at the FACEIT Major, where they went 3-0 in the New Legends stage.

compLexity became the first playoffs team at the FACEIT Major after going 3-0 in the Swiss format, defeating fnatic 16-4 on Inferno, G2 16-11 on Cache, and BIG 16-8 on Nuke.

After their latest match, we talked to dephh about their run and especially their encounter with BIG. The first British player to make Major playoffs also touched on compLexity's map pool given that they played Inferno in their first five matches over the first two stages:

Back when the UK was relevant.
2018-09-14 20:13
feelsbadman. uk was top2-3 back in source and in go for 6 years it was irrelevant. mby relevant a bit with anexis at the beginning of cs go. but now some talents have risen up. another reason to be proud.

I'm hoping that some players can make our scene relevant again. But in CSGO, we won't be what we used to be. #exsourceplayer
2018-09-14 20:17
hopefully. mby more fresh new talents will raise next year just like smooya and dephh did this year.

Has to be the most unexpected run in major history considering they went 3-0 and demolished teams people would have thought they would get smashed by.

So much salt in here, RIP Pickems and bettors. Nice to see some less popular teams making it through in big events. Even if it's a complete fluke, it's refreshing.

Really cool to see Complexity going this far and in this fashion. Wish Jason Lake would've been there, would have loved seeing his reaction to them making it top 8.
