Sticking together after a Top 6 finish at The Shanghai Major was not a complex decision for compLexity Gaming, according to both Kyle "Beef" Bautista and team captain Kyle "swindlezz" Freedman. The two announced the decision to keep their current roster for The Manila Major and The International 6 on Twitter Tuesday.
The American team caused a number of upsets at The Shanghai Major, even before the event began. During the qualifier, coL defeated Digital Chaos 2-1, taking the last Americas slot.
At main event, coL finished last in their group, behind Virtus.pro, Team Liquid and Evil Geniuses. But they went on to take game after game in their lower bracket run. They eliminated LGD-Gaming in a best-of-one series and defeated one of the favored European teams, Alliance, 2-1. They eventually fell to fellow American team Evil Geniuses, but with a 5th-6th finish they took home a cool $202,000.
coL won both qualifiers for ESL One Manila 2016 and Dota Pit League Season 4, and they are in the running for EPICENTER: Moscow's qualifiers, which were also announced on Tuesday. They are matched against Enemy eSports on March 15 at 6 p.m. EST.
compLexity Gaming's roster looks as follows:
- Rasmus "Chessie" Blomdin
- Linus "Limmp" Blomdin
- Kyle "swindlezzz" Freedman
- Zakari "Zfreek" Freedman
- Simon "Handsken" Haag
