Rickeh ruled out of ESL Pro League Americas; n0thing to stand in
compLexity have once again called upon n0thing, who will undergo another stand-in stint with the team at ESL Pro League Season 9 Americas after spending the first three months of 2019 as a temporary fifth, attending iBUYPOWER Masters, ELEAGUE Invitational, and IEM Katowice before the squad added Hunter "SicK" Mims.
It's unclear for how long the Australian player will be out of action and whether it could extend beyond ESL Pro League, which is kicking off on April 12, with compLexity placed in Group B (April 17-19) alongside Liquid, Ghost, and Lazarus.
Should the team qualify directly to the finals, they will not have any obligations afterward until ECS Season 7 Finals at the beginning of June. However, advancing to the second group stage could see the team have to utilize a stand-in once more if the visa issues aren't resolved by that time.
compLexity are the third ESL Pro League team hindered by problems with visas. Renegades announced that Sean "Gratisfaction" Kaiwai and Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad would miss the event, with Owen "smooya" Butterfield and Stephen "reltuC" Cutler stepping in for the Australian side, while INTZ's Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe and Lucas "destiny" Bullo will be replaced by Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Gonçalves and João "horvy" Horvath.
compLexity's roster at ESL Pro League Season 9 Americas will be:
