Complexity to skip ESL Pro League Americas Stage two

Complexity will not attend the second stage of ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas due to roster rules, team owner Jason Lake has announced.

In a Twitter post, Mr. Lake explained that Complexity's recent additions, Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke and Valentin "poizon" Vasilev, would not be able to take part in the tournament after playing in the first stage of the league with other teams, respectively OpTic and Windigo.

Instead of adding two stand-ins just for this stage or attending the event with former duo Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and Rory "dephh" Jackson, Complexity decided against playing the remainder of the tournament, with Mr. Lake stating that the "focus is on giving the new lineup time to train for 2020."

Complexity will not compete in the second stage of ESL Pro League

HLTV.org has reached out to ESL to clarify whether it will seek a replacement for Complexity in Group A, which is now down to just three teams, ATK, Envy and DETONA. The winner of the group will advance to the Pro League Finals, in Odense, next month.

probably one of the teams that initially went to relegation and had good round difference or something would be my guess.

Should’ve made new roster after qualifying lul 0 iq “juggernaut” team
2019-11-07 01:19
you would have to continue with 3/5 of the roster you qualified with
2019-11-07 15:38
yeah i guess. could've just waited until mid-december then. Are they even playing anything before that now?
2019-11-07 15:41
other than this they have nothing coming up this year as of right now.

And FURIA and 100T in same group... Congratz ESL!
2019-11-07 14:48
I see where ur coming from but that's a dumb move, you won't get an easier group ever to advance, atk being the only clear opponent. I think it's going to backfire just like it did on c9 skipping the major
