In a surprising, yet somewhat expected, move earlier today NerdRage have announced that Kia “Surreal” Man would be leaving their team to go and trial for the North American side Team compLexity, where he is set to link up with his former CAZ eSports teammate Rory “dephh” Jackson, who joined the team earlier this year.

What was first expected to be the BEASTS lineup attending epic17, later turned out to be a super mix team headed up by Neil_M. When talking to Neil about this lineup when we first broke the story, it was clear he had around eight names to fill a five man team.
