EliGE is on a new journey with Complexity

EliGE loses longest-tenured title

It was inevitable for the Complexity star.

For years, Liquid and Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski were synonymous. The American rifler joined the organization in 2015 when he was just seventeen years old, replacing Keith "NAF" Markovic. In an ironic twist, NAF has now become the longest-active member of the Dutch-American organization.

EliGE spent more than 3,000 days with Liquid from 2015 until his departure to Complexity in the summer of 2023. His total time served of 3,013 days saw the rifler reach the HLTV Top 20 several times and even win the Intel Grand Slam in 2019.

Now, FaZe's Håvard "rain" Nygaard has taken the mantle of longest-tenured player in Counter-Strike history after he has officially served 3,014 days with his organization. The rifler joined FaZe from G2 in early 2016 and has been in the starting lineup the entire time. The Norweigen rifler has, like EliGE, featured in the Top 20 several times over the course of his career, won the Intel Grand Slam, and even won a Major.

Notably, Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson would be the one to have claimed the spot of longest-tenured player if he had not departed for GODSENT for a two-month period in late 2016. The Swede first joined Fnatic in 2014 and has been with them ever since if we just ignore that little break up.

Rounding out the Top 5 most-tenured players Cătălin-Ionuț "⁠BTN⁠" Stănescu on Nexus in 3rd place, the aforementioned KRIMZ in 4th place, and Patrik "⁠f0rest⁠" Lindberg in 5th for his time on Ninjas in Pyjamas.
