Founded in 2003, CompLexity is one of the pioneers of esports. During their long run of existence, they have won many trophies in many areas of esports – FIFA, DOTA 2, Fortnite, Heartstone, EA Madden, CS:GO…
Although this team has existed on the global stage since the dawn of esports, they don’t seem to take the leap into making a huge impact on their status. Breaking into the elites and being one of the top teams was a bit of a task for them, but their consistency allows them to keep their place among the top 30 and from time to time they show pretty strong performances.
The rise of Complexity started in 2005, where they have won the S-Tier tournament- ESWC 2005, getting the first championship since being founded.
In the next year, they managed to win 3 tournaments – GGL/ClanBase Trans-Atlantic Showdown, CPL Summer 2006 and Championship Gaming Invitational 2006, and they came up short in the finals of WEG Masters 2006.
They were not as active as before in 2007, but they managed to capture two tournaments, Stride Xfire Cup and GGS 2007 Individual Tournament.
After what could be considered as one of their best periods, the team slowed down significantly, making a 3-year streak without winning a championship.
In the year of their return, they captured a much-needed championship in IEM V American Championship Finals.
They went on to make another 3-year period with no major wins and then seized the 4th place in DreamHack Winter 2013.
Fast forward to 2018, Complexity has shown signs of life once again. After half a decade of being away from the big boy’s stage, they succeeded at winning Americas Minor Championship – London.
For the fans who had been following and loving this game from the very start, there could not be a more pleasant experience than to see CompLexity rise again to be a part of a regular CS:GO scene.
