Complexity has confirmed its commitment to Counter-Strike in a new statement posted on social media, as it resigns all its players.
North American esports organization Complexity Gaming has confirmed its commitment to NA Counter-Strike in a new post on their official socials. The historic NA org stated that it would extend the contracts to three of its players in a social post on Jan. 4.
In the post the org confirmed it had extended the contracts of Johnny “JT” Theodosiou, Ricky “floppy” Kemery, and Michael “Grim” Wince, as well as confirming that Håkon “hallzerk” Fjærli and Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski would stay with the team for the upcoming statement.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to play for the best fans in the world, and we are eternally thankful for your support.”
The letter is headed “From the desk of Jason Lake,” the founder and CEO of Complexity.
Complexity commits to NA
Complexity Gaming is one of the most storied NA esports organizations, having initially turned into an professional organization in 2004 (although had existed as a Counter-Strike clan since 1998). The team has operated in dozens of games over its decades long tenure, but has always maintained a presence in Counter-Strike. Now, with the start of Counter-Strike 2, the org has committed its efforts.
Complexity’s stance stands in stark contrast to other NA organizations such as Evil Geniuses, Team SoloMid, Sentinels, 100 Thieves, NRG, Team Liquid, and others, who have struggled to maintain a North American presence, or their existence at all. Evil Geniuses, another one of NA’s most long-lived orgs, currently exists on life support, with some forecasting its complete dissolution later this year.
Overall, Complexity’s commitment will come as a relief to NA fans, who all too often don’t have too much to cheer for.
