NaToSaphiX to step in for Complexity in ESL Pro League playoffs

Nordavind have agreed to loan out the Dane to Complexity for the league's bracket stage.

Complexity found themselves down a man on Tuesday when the organization announced that Owen "⁠oBo⁠" Schlatter had decided to step down from the team and returned to the United States in the middle of their campaign at ESL Pro League Season 12.

At the time, CEO Jason Lake revealed that Complexity have compiled a shortlist of possible permanent replacements for the 17-year-old but also admitted that they might use an emergency substitute for the league's playoffs stage, kicking off on Tuesday, September 29.

NaToSaphiX reunites with blameF in a temporary stint with Complexity

And that is the case with Niels-Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen, who will return to action for the first time since early August, when he stepped down from Nordavind's active roster after a mutual agreement.

His stint with Complexity will see the 24-year-old temporarily reunited with Benjamin "⁠blameF⁠" Bremer, alongside whom he played in Heroic for a little over three months in mid-2019 and placed in the top eight at two consecutive big events, ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals and ESL One Cologne 2019.

Complexity's campaign in the league's bracket stage, played in a double-elimination format, will begin with an upper bracket matchup against ENCE on Tuesday at 21:00 . Their lineup will look as follows:

Denmark Benjamin "⁠blameF⁠" Bremer
United States William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba
Denmark Kristian "⁠k0nfig⁠" Wienecke
Bulgaria Valentin "⁠poizon⁠" Vasilev
Denmark Niels-Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen (stand-in)

United Kingdom Jamie "⁠keita⁠" Hall (coach)

i guess he's not a bad sub to be fair curious how roles will be swapped around though
2020-09-25 22:17
Don't know if they will change the roles, nato said everytime that he's ok to fill in whatever role is needed.
2020-09-25 22:20
I don't expect so much from this roster,I wait for an actual fifth. I hope they'll have fun at least
2020-09-25 22:48
i hope they can at least take a game and get 5-6th it'd be disappointing for them to go 7-8th after a really good group stage showing
2020-09-26 01:19
He really isn't. You just have NA brain.
2020-09-26 20:01
in terms of free agents there are much worse nato is willing to stand in and play any spot so thats what i meant

calling middle easterns cavemens lmao and calling us ignorant lmao kekw. you need to understand that the world aint run by what you and your society deems to be correct . gays arent allowed in our society for over 3000 years kekw cause its our society . you guys do alcohol even tho you know it damages your liver but thats fine cause its your society and its your societies customs while we have our own.

Now -poizon +acoR -RUSH + Bubzkji and ez major. Edit: Obviously i'm kidding, but if they change roles it can be very good Bubzkji = oBo (Rifler) BlameF = RUSH (Entry-fragger) poizon = AcoR (AWPer) NaToSaphiX = BlameF = (IGL) k0nfig stays as rifler

2020-09-26 01:21
NaToSaphiX is a solid player, and I think he can be a good addition to some team, but I don't think he will fit to Complexity. I understand that he will only be a stand in for now, I would be really surprised if coL would go for a player like him.
