compLexity to miss DH Summer

complexity gaming have announced they will be unable to attend DreamHack Summer later this month.

The American side had been announced as one of the four invited teams who will be present at DH Summer, which will take place from 19-22 June.

However, after a recent prolonged stay in Europe, where compLexity competed in Arbalet Cup Europe and the IOL Finals, they now see themselves forced to cancel their attendance.

"Jeff "hero" Mettetal was unable to secure the necessary time off to attend the June event," a compLexity statement read. "We have tried over the past few days to find a way to make it work but it will be impossible for us to attend. 

"We at compLexity always stress to our players the importance of school and work over gaming and in this case there was no way to get around life commitments."

The decision leaves DreamHack with one invite to hand out less than three weeks prior to the tournament kickoff. HLTV.org has learned that mTw have been in talks with DH to get hold of the spot, so a final decision is expected in the near future.

DreamHack Summer 2010 participants' list:

Sweden Meet Your Makers (Dreamhack Winter 2009 winners)
Sweden fnatic (Wildcard - Invited by DreamHack)
Sweden SK Gaming (Wildcard - Invited by DreamHack)
Ukraine Na´Vi (Wildcard - Invited by DreamHack)
Other TBA (Wildcard - Invited by DreamHack)
Belgium Antwerp Aces (International qualifier - Benelux)
Netherlands Kaos (International qualifier - Benelux)
Sweden Concode (International qualifier - Norway)
Turkey DarkPassage (International qualifier - Turkey)
France Fair Frag (International qualifier - France)
Sweden MUSKELBYGGNING (Online qualifier - DreamHack round 24)
Sweden Aimbat (DreamHack Skellefteå V, 13-15 May) 
Other TBA (DreamHack LAN qualifier)  
Other TBA (DreamHack LAN qualifier)

compLexity will also miss out on the IOL FINAL4, who will replace the American squad is not announced yet. The team replacing compLexity will compete against SK, fnatic and H2k for the IOL FINAL4 trophy.

Last time this happened the team ended up making changes. Lets hope that this squad does well at the ESEA LAN finals, or I smell a possible UE pickup in the near future(all depending on LAN Finals)! But I have to say, Jeff taking his time to go to work couldn't be a smarter decision.

2010-06-02 16:15
This is one of the dumbest things I've ever read. UE isn't on the same level as coL. Not even close.

Just like ECO would not beat coL right? Oh wait, they did it twice.

i think coL could possibly be replaced if they don't show commitment and the ability to do well soon, but ECO did beat them on lite and russka, no one should read into that. sure maybe coL should have been able to outaim, but its still russka and lite.

I really don't care what map it was on, those maps will be at the ESEA LAN Finals too. I'm not hating on coL, but they should have won.

FF got this slot cuz the ranking system is kinda... strange even if a team doesn't win a LAN, it gets a lot of points for being in the 4 first places, to reward not only the team which win a lot but also the teams which attend to a lot of LANs. This makes that FF are ranked 1st even though they're not the best..
