keita to step in for oBo in DreamHack Open Fall closed qualifier

The Complexity coach will play in Owen "⁠oBo⁠" Schlatter's place for the entirety of the closed qualifier.

The last-minute Jamie "⁠keita⁠" Hall substitution will come as a big blow to Complexity's hopes of making up their deficit in the Regional Major Ranking, as they've only earned 350 points so far after a 13th-14th placing at ESL One: Road to Rio and an early exit in the cs_summit 6 regional qualifier.

The team will suffer a 20% reduction of points earned at DreamHack Open Fall due to utilizing a substitution, which will increase to a total of a 36% reduction should oBo return into the lineup at any point during the Regional Major Ranking event.

oBo will sit out the closed qualifier for unknown reasons

Complexity have just begun their campaign in the closed qualifier, in which they have been matched up against sAw in the opening round of the double-elimination bracket.

Currently ranked fifth in the world, the European-American side had been by far the biggest favorite of the tournament, but the substitution is sure to decrease their chances among the competition, which includes names such as Sprout, mousesports, and North.

HLTV.org has reached out to Complexity for a comment. The organization's CEO, Jason Lake, will be hosting a press conference at 18:30 on his Twitch channel.

2020-09-22 23:47
Hungary and Brazil, worse off than America and you guys are hating on a young kid for wanting to return to where he grew up, where his friends are, where his family is, and what he knows. He's only 17 for Christ's sake. Get off of HLTV you trolls.
2020-09-23 01:39
The reason is that? Obo is weak If this is the real reason. w-e-a-k have no age for that.

2020-09-22 16:15
Nice info, there no info before match, also no reason why he don't play
2020-09-22 16:16
He's going to regret moving to C9. That team will fall flat.
2020-09-22 16:22
He's not gonna move to C9 since its gonna be based on EU then moved to LA after COVID.
2020-09-23 02:35
oBo to School?
2020-09-22 16:23
That's a really big problem for Complexity, it's going to be really hard for them to qualify and I doubt that they will make it.

yes, if oBo joins C9 i lost all respect for that C9 Team and organisation for oBo i already did

i can see cloud9 becoming the new faze if all they want is huge buyout and top players. henryg is following ynk steps
2020-09-22 17:32
Faze is a joke due to the lack of IGL and more on firepower. That's not comparable to C9.

why df would obo go to C9, a random brand new team when he has a solid top team at col. If it was about money, there would be news sources about negotiations, col might offer more money to keep him or buyout prices for obo..

the c9 rumour makes sense c9 is a flashpoint team, based in LA. if he moves to c9 he's back home instead of living in hotels in serbia/dk/london like col atm. probably a bit much for a 17y with school in the middle
2020-09-22 18:29
i hope hes not going to c9 thatd be a big gamble and possibly a huge downgrade
2020-09-22 18:42
well he's 16, man probably has to finish high school ffs
2020-09-22 18:43
It would be better for oBo to finish high school first like ropz did.
