Complexity part ways with blameF*
The Danish in-game leader was the last remaining member of Complexity's original 'Juggernaut' roster.
Benjamin "blameF" Bremer is no longer a part of Complexity, the Dallas-based organization announced in a surprising move on Friday. The 24-year-old also revealed that he is now a free agent, making himself available to teams ahead of a shuffle period that is sure to follow after PGL Major Stockholm.
blameF has plied his trade for Complexity since September 2019, initially joining as a part of a North American mixture that included Hunter "SicK" Mims and Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan. However, the roster failed to deliver on results, and changes swiftly followed as the team morphed into a European lineup, with only William "RUSH" Wierzba and Owen "oBo" Schlatter remaining from their original roster.
The additions of Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke and Valentin "poizon" Vasilev that followed had an immediate impact, with Complexity impressing in their 2020 LAN debut at BLAST Premier Spring Series. Since then though, Complexity have been unable to deliver on the expectations promised by the names on their roster, and were a victim of the online era as notable results were few and far between in the last 18 months.
The loss of oBo was followed by further turmoil in the roster as both poizon and k0nfig recovered from surgeries at separate points, and recently, a death blow was seemingly dealt after the team failed to qualify for PGL Major Stockholm, exiting the IEM Fall Europe RMR in 17-20th place.
blameF's sudden departure comes as a shock as the Danish tactician was the primary building block of Complexity's original roster, being the sole piece remaining from Jason Lake's 'Juggernaut' after the team bid farewell to RUSH, poizon, and k0nfig in recent months. With Marcelo "coldzera" David also on a temporary contract until the end of the year, further questions now arise as to the organization's plans heading into 2022.
UPDATE: Responding to a fan who asked why he left Complexity, blameF revealed in a live stream that he was kicked. Toward the end of the stream, he clarified the kick was by the organization as they "chose to part ways" with him.
Complexity are left with:
Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach)
