ShahZaM announces free agency

Shahzeb "⁠ShahZaM⁠" Khan revealed that he is no longer tied to Complexity and is looking to get back into action as soon as possible.

Following a short stay in OpTic, the American player joined Complexity in April of 2018 and spent a year-and-a-half representing the organization. During ShahZaM's tenure with the team, Complexity's best achievement was a 5th-8th finish at the FACEIT London Major, after which the AWPer opened up about low points of his career and explained what kept him going.

ShahZaM is looking for a new team to represent

Throughout Complexity's underwhelming 2019, ShahZaM averaged a 1.06 rating (1.01 on LAN), with his best LAN event being the ECS Season 7 Finals in May (1.15 rating). ShahZaM ended up benched in October as the team looked to upgrade in the sniping department, eventually signing the Bulgarian talent Valentin "⁠poizon⁠" Vasilev.

As he is no longer contracted to Complexity, ShahZaM announced that he is open to offers and that he is "looking to waste no time getting back in the server".

Not really underrated, he is doing his job, but he is not the flashy player anymore, that job is taken by the rest of the team... Still, maybe he could do some more dumb things and make us happy but I think even he is happy doing his job and not being in the middle of attention how much time the team is winning
2019-11-27 21:49
I guess what I meant is that, when it comes to how hltv sees him. Hes always the first person people want to cut, just because he isn't the top fragger. He does his job, and he does a job most players won't want.

Yeah, that's true... Even I couldn't believe his first games with Liquid seeing how safe he plays and for the team's best, mostly because of his personality, but it seems like he is kind of different than I thought:). Anyway, without doubt he fits perfectly in this team
2019-11-28 06:29
Even with that, he did a good job in the major with misfits :)

Shazam has been snaking his way into tier 2 teams as long as cs go has been around, i dont even want to know how many teams he has been benched or kicked from. Garbo player who only serves to bring some drama in NA once in a while. Never achieved anything and content with being bad as long as he gets a paycheck.

He should only be taken for tier 2 teams and prove he's capable of being anything better. Plz no tier 1 teams take him, he's not worth it.

honestly how stupid can you be cunt?
2019-11-27 03:09
Well considering I've played with and around him for a few years, probably not as stupid as the dumbfuck I'm replying to. Edit: he would bring nothing to that team, and certainly isn't what they need to improve because, you know, history is a hell of a thing.
2019-11-27 03:55
it's so stupid to even bring up a move that happened those many years ago especially under a different roster. fucking idiot lol
2019-11-27 05:25
You're so fucking stupid you don't even understand the relevance of what I said. Being that long ago means he's past his prime, and the underlying motive was it was a joke since everyone seems to forget he already played there. But yeah, clearly I'm the idiot here. Go fuck a dingo you dumb cunt.
