Today, Epsilon announced their return to CS:GO with a new European roster. The roster contains a few familiar faces with two players being from the UK.

First is Rory ‘Dephh’ Jackson who is the entry fragger for Complexity. His humble beginnings were in the UK playing for CAZ Esports.

Dephh began to make a name for himself online as well as offline at numerous Insomnia [...]
