Complexity bench RUSH
The American has been moved to the team's inactive roster as they look to make further changes heading into the tournament break.
William "RUSH" Wierzba has been benched from Complexity's active roster, the Dallas-based organisation has announced. The change is the second in the last week for Complexity, who also parted ways with coach Jamie "keita" Hall following their 13-16th place exit from IEM Cologne.
The move brings about an end to the 27-year-old's 21-month long tenure as a part of the team, which began alongside Benjamin "blameF" Bremer in October 2019 and during which Complexity won just one notable event, the BLAST Premier Europe Fall Finals.
Outside of their single event win, Complexity's results have been plagued by inconsistency, which started to stem following the departure of Owen "oBo" Schlatter and was further extenuated by a break from Valentin "poizon" Vasilev due to an emergency surgery.
Throughout his tenure, RUSH has consistently been the lowest-rated player on Complexity, averaging a 0.95 rating. However, his teammates and pundits have pointed towards his role as one that has been crucial in the roster's limited success, often creating space and sacrificing his own stats in favour of enabling the team.
"It's been an absolute pleasure working with RUSH and I can't state enough how impressed I was in his professionalism during a very challenging time," Complexity CEO Jason Lake told HLTV.org in a statement. "He's an incredible person who I admire greatly and I will miss him moving forward."
The 27-year-old American, who has spent much of the past 18 months overseas in Europe, will have the opportunity to return home and reassess his options during the player break. The organisation, meanwhile, will have two spots to fill on their roster as they look towards the start of ESL Pro League Season 14, which will kick off on August 18.
Following the move, Complexity's roster looks as follows:
