Slemmy returns to compLexity as a stand-in
Former compLexity in-game leader, Alec "Slemmy" White, has returned to the team to complete their ECS season. He comes in to replace Pujan "FNS" Mehta, who recently left the team to join Cloud9.
Slemmy hasn't played a game of competitive CS:GO since he left compLexity and retired at the end of January. The organization announced this through a video statement on twitter, where Slemmy explains why he returned to the team so soon after hanging up his mouse and keyboard, stating:
Under any other circumstance you'd probably never have seen me playing CS again. Just the fact I was able to come back to the last organization I was on, and they were really good to me and I was friends with the guys. It worked out that they needed a person and I know the system and I know the players.
As can be seen from his Steam profile, he has barely touched the game in recent months, focusing more on casual non-competitive games since his retirement. Although it's worth noting he has started putting hours in once again as of today.
Dust2.us has learned that they intend to use Slemmy for the ESL Pro League as well as ECS, with a transfer request already submitted to ESL/WESA awaiting acceptance.
Slemmy's first game back with compLexity will be against Luminosity tonight, as they look to avoid relegation in ECS Season 5.
The new compLexity roster is as follows:
- Rory "dephh" Jackson
- Brad "androidx23" Fodor
- Jacob "yay" Whiteaker
- Peter "ptr" Gurney
- Alec "Slemmy" White (stand-in)
- Ronald "Rambo" Kim (Coach)
- Andrew "Professor_Chaos" Heintz (Analyst)
- Matt "Warden" Dickens (Manager)
