Complexity, Renegades drop out of DreamHack Masters Malmö closed qualifier

Amid reports of upcoming changes to the teams, Renegades and Complexity have both opted to not participate in the DreamHack Masters Malmö NA closed qualifier.

Complexity are not a surprise dropout given that they are left with a four-man roster following the release of Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland earlier in the week. Meanwhile, the future of the Renegades roster remains unknown, with Dexerto reporting that the team's contracts are set to expire in the near future and that the players may not re-sign.

The two teams are not the only ones struggling with roster woes as Envy, who were also invited to the closed qualifier, are also currently trialing players to replace Aran "Sonic" Groesbeek.

Renegades have gone renegade on the qualifier

To fill the vacant spots, two additional teams will be pulled from the open qualifier. The winners of the quarter-final matches will advance to the closed qualifier, while the losers will play an extra match in order to determine the final two teams.

The DreamHack Masters Malmö NA open qualifier is currently underway, with a new-look Luminosity lineup fighting for one of the six qualification spots alongside the likes of ATK, Sharks, and Swole Patrol.

2019-09-12 22:15
they just came in the top 4 at a major and top 8 at a previous major, absolutely no reason to change the lineup, in fact it would be idiotic to do so purely from a financial perspective as they'd lost their major spot. They are guaranteed to attend another 2 majors at least if they keep most of this roster together, that is a lot of money to throw away in the *hope* that your new team qualifies for the major, and even then the new team still only goes into Challengers.
2019-09-18 04:29
Jks and jkaem are their best players. Liazz hasn't been amazing for Renegades really.

2019-09-11 03:44
Liaz is support. Jks is a star player. Liaz used to carry Order. He's just "filling" roles no one else would. Like Xyp9x , he has potential to be star player but nah , he's carrying when his team is not on point. Xyp and Liaz have shown not once but multiple times what they're capable of.

I like Grat, but he's nothing outstanding, Nifty was sometimes outstandingly great, some other time outstandingly shit If he could find consistency with the AWP, he would be a better sniper than Gratisfaction And he could call also if needed (although I would not put him as IGL)
