Complexity release assistant coach AntO_oNNN
The Belgian had been with Complexity since 2019.
Anton "AntO_oNNN" Van Gorp has announced via his Twitter that he is departing Complexity after almost four years with the organization. The move comes just under two weeks after the squad were eliminated from the BLAST Paris Major Challengers Stage.
"I want to thank Complexity for the continuous belief across the years (with multiple rebuilds from scratch)," AntO_oNNN said in his tweet. He also stated that he was looking for new opportunities as a coach or as broadcast talent.
2023 has been a mixed year for Complexity, one that started brightly but since has soured somewhat. They kicked off the season with a string of solid results and a 7-8th placing at IEM Katowice, which catapulted the squad to the current core’s peak ranking of No. 8 in the world.
Since Katowice the team has slid outside of the top 20 amidst a last-place finish at EPL Season 17, a pre-playoffs exit at ESL Challenger Melbourne at the hands of ECSTATIC, and a 12-14th place exit in the Challengers Stage of the recent Paris Major.
AntO_oNNN joined Complexity in 2019 as an analyst, before becoming Assistant Coach in 2020. During his tenure with the squad he saw multiple rosters come and go, working with a majority-North American roster upon his arrival, then the European ‘Juggernaut’ roster that contained the likes of Benjamin "blameF" Bremer, and finally the roster that the organization sports now.
The Belgian coach worked with the team through two Majors, the PGL Major Antwerp and the recent BLAST.tv Paris Major, and helped the team to 7-8th at IEM Katowice this year, their best Big Event placing during his tenure.
