compLexity release CS squad
American side compLexity have announced the immediate release of their Counter-Strike team.
compLexity had in late March this year announced the creation of their new Counter-Strike team, which then consisted of the former two Loaded members David "Xp3" Garrido and Scott "evolution" Cavallero, followed by Jeff "hero" Mettetal.
The last two, Thomas "thoMz" Garcia and Derek "dboorN" Boorn, were initially a part of the organization's lineup just one week before the above-mentioned announcement - another project which also saw its disbandment.
The Evil Geniuses Master's Cup winners later added former x3o star Andrew "Irukandji" Timmermann, replacing Scott "evolution" Cavallero in the process.
It has now become known that one of the compLexity players had missed his flight to Beijing, apparently forgetting his visa, where the team was supposed to attend the MSI BEAT IT finals. This incident also led to two other members intentionally missing their flights, something the organization did not take lightly.
"This type of incompetence and outright disrespect for a tournament organizer flies in the face of everything compLexity stands for and will not be tolerated", reads the compLexity website."
The compLexity management furthermore adds that their team has been the "most difficult" group dealing with as managers, pointing out constant turmoil and finger pointing within the squad.
"However, that being said, the group as a collective has been the most difficult we, as managers, have ever dealt with. There was constant turmoil, in-fighting and finger pointing. Rather than taking our advice and direction to develop a core group of five loyal players, the team consistently insisted on roster changes, even threatening to retire if not given their way."
"Against our better judgment, and in the interest of maintaining a North American Counter-Strike team, we acquiesced and gave our newest roster one more chance at proving themselves. This final act of disrespect to our organization, eSports and the tournament organizers at MSI BEAT IT has left us with no choice but to release the squad."
compLexity boasted the following quintet:
David "Xp3" Garrido
Andrew "Irukandji" Timmerman
Thomas "thoMz" Garcia
Derek "dboorN" Boorn
Jeff "hero" Mettetal
Whether the MSI BEAT IT organizers will summon another team to suffice for compLexity's absence is currently unknown, but HLTV.org will keep you posted as soon as anything breaks.
