Earlier this year Rory ‘Dephh’ Jackson created an absolute storm of news by moving to the USA to play with North American team compLexity, he would go on to be joined by Kia ‘Surreal’ Man to give a British backbone to compLexity Gaming. After being touted as a top UK player, Rory went on to become one of the first ever Counterstrike players to secure a P-1 Athletic Visa.
I had a chat with Dephh to catch up and see ow things were faring across the pond.
First of all, thank you for taking the time out of your day to answer these questions! It’s been roughly 6 months since the official announcement that you were joining Complexity. 6 months [...]
CEX had a disappointing run at i58 where they only managed a 13-16th finish. This caused team captain, Andrew “resu” Robson, to re-evaluate the lineup and try to get closer to the victory they achieved at i56.
This player exchange sees four players removed from the i58 roster, leaving resu with a clean slate to build on. This means that Chronic, EB, AndrewIsGod and Rob4 are all left without a home making room for resu‘s new player choices.
Earlier this week, CAZ eSports announced two new CSGO lineups under their banner. Their previous roster, which won Season 1 of Multiplay’s UK Masters, fell apart shortly after i58. This left team captain, Jake “Jakem” McCausland, with the painful task of building a new roster to continue the success. With ambitions set on tournaments like WESG and UK Masters Season 2, this new lineup needs to hit the ground running.
VATIC have announced they have ended the search for their new CSGO roster by picking up a lineup built around two players from the i58 team Enemies in Disbelief. This news comes after VATIC fell short in keeping their hands on “Orgles5” earlier this month.
We won’t need to wait long to see this team in action as they have plans in place to attend epic.NINETEEN next month. In the meantime, they will be taking part in online events such as ESEA Main where they currently sit in 54th place.
