The young AWPer has been placed on the bench

Complexity AWPer officially benched

After a season of struggles, Complexity have officially benched junior as they look to secure a replacement.

Complexity have officially announced that Paytyn "junior" Johnson has been benched from the starting lineup, with the organization stating they will be helping him to find a new home, confirming a report from yesterday. The news comes on the day of the BLAST Premier Fall Group roster lock, with Complexity looking to debut their roster with a new player at the event.

The former FURIA and Bad News Bears AWPer struggled to find his footing in tier-one Counter-Strike, with his HLTV rating during the Challengers Stage of the PGL Antwerp Major notably being the second-lowest of that stage. While he has seen some minor improvement since the Major, Complexity have elected to try and find a more suitable upgrade for the world stage.

Complexity assembled this lineup seven months ago by signing the Extra Salt core of Ricky "floppy" Kemery, Justin "FaNg" Coakley, and Johnny "JT" Theodosiou alongside junior and Michael "Grim" Wince. An extremely promising team met with great fan-fare following the conclusion of the "Juggernaut" project, the team has been on a historic slide since April 29th, winning only a single match in that time frame. Complexity realized changes had to be made and they have decided that junior was the one to go.

With junior's move to the bench confirmed, Complexity are now:

  • Johnny "JT" Theodosiou

  • Canada Justin "FaNg" Coakley

  • United States Ricky "floppy" Kemery

  • United States Michael "Grim" Wince

  • Tiaan "T.c" Coertzen (Coach)

  • United States Paytyn "junior" Johnson (Inactive)

Complexity will miss the first IEM Road to Rio Open Qualifier due to travel days, so they will look to debut their new roster at the BLAST Premier Fall Groups on August 19th.
