The moves come as compLexity have trended downward since their quarterfinal appearance at the FACEIT Major earlier in the year. After returning from their surprise finish in London, the team finished out of LAN position in both EPL and ECS, and were not able to take home a win at either of the DreamHack Open events they attended.

Their year was capped off by suffering a reverse sweep at the hands of Envy in the StarSeries i-League Season 7 North America qualifier.

Poor timing but it was inevitable for yay :/

Kind of surprised about Rambo tho, I guess he didnt have the impact they wanted?
