poizon returns to Complexity's active roster

The Bulgarian player is ready to get back in the server after two months on the sidelines.

Valentin "⁠poizon⁠" Vasilev will feature for Complexity in the BLAST Premier Spring Groups against Vitality on February 8, returning to action after missing the last two months due to health problems, the North American organisation announced on Thursday.

The 22-year-old has been on the sidelines since December, when he was moved to the bench to undergo emergency surgery not long after Complexity's quarter-final run at DreamHack Masters Winter 2020.

poizon is back on Complexity's active roster

Complexity struggled during the AWPer's absence, finishing 7-8th at IEM Global Challenge and BLAST Premier Global Final, with Otto "⁠ottoNd⁠" Sihvo and Jakob "⁠JUGi⁠" Hansen standing in, respectively, and 11-12th at cs_summit 7, again with the Danish sniper as a substitute.

Following the BLAST Premier Spring Groups, the European squad will play the IEM Katowice Play-In, where they will go up against NIP on February 16 in their first match of the tournament's double-elimination bracket.

Complexity are now back to their regular starting five:

Bulgaria Valentin "⁠poizon⁠" Vasilev
Australia Justin "⁠jks⁠" Savage
United States William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba
Denmark Kristian "⁠k0nfig⁠" Wienecke
Denmark Benjamin "⁠blameF⁠" Bremer

United Kingdom Jamie "⁠keita⁠" Hall (coach)

If they got second and upset Astralis and Vitality in their first event, they should do well if their roster is still good on their first game back

Not really. Before he went for surgery poizon was struggling pretty badly. Maybe if he's healed up fine, he'll be back to putting up big numbers

I wouldn't expect them to do much since he just got back. I'd wait until the next tournament to judge.

Jks is good enough but he can't bait because baitF already does, somebody needs to switch roles
2021-02-05 01:03

Yeah jks is good but I would have preferred another rifler, because of the conflicting roles, as you said, with BaitF

Yeah, I also don't like blameF. He is baiting a lot and he's not even a good rifler.

2021-02-04 20:18
Wonder if his comeback has been rushed since the results and motivation have been horrible in the team. Hopefully that isn't the case and the team will be stable in the future, which will bring jks back to his old form.
2021-02-04 20:18

It’s not about the form it’s just because jks is a baiter like BlameF and can’t play other roles

Good. He is an absolute beast and, despite average performances during this online era ( partly due to his bulgarian connection ) was their best player when CS was still on LAN. Can't wait to see him grind his way to top 20 once LAN's back.
2021-02-04 23:07
I hope he will be able to get back to form after his injury.
