The North American squad’s roster continues to shrink as 2 players leave in as many days.
The offseason rolls on in the Dota 2 world, but compLexity Gaming is back in the news with another change to its roster. Just 2 days after the departure of support player and captain Adam “Adam” Shah, the team has lost another member of its roster as carry player David “Moo” Hull has announced that he has also left the organization and is in search of another squad for the upcoming Pro Circuit season.
For Moo, the decision brings to an end a period of nearly 2 years with the compLexity Gaming organization, as he first joined the North American squad in September of 2016 in the wake of his removal from the Digital Chaos lineup in the post-TI6 roster shuffle. The U.S. player has served as both a carry and an offlaner for compLexity Gaming through its various iterations, and while he has made it clear that he has left the roster of his now former team, his preference between those 2 positions was not specified. With his experience playing at multiple positions, as well as a multitude of appearances on the international level, Moo will likely be a valuable commodity as a free agent in the North American region, especially if the myriad rumors and theorized roster moves from teams in the region end up being true.
As for the team that Moo has left behind, compLexity Gaming has some work to do before the September 15 registration deadline. The team is now down to just 3 members in terms of its roster, and at this stage it isn’t necessarily clear if any of those players plan on remaining with the organization either. As it stands now, the team will need to add both a carry and another support player, and potentially more if any further departures are announced. Given the number of free agents available in the North American region, there doesn’t seem to be any shortage of potential additions for compLexity Gaming, but finding the right fit for its lineup has been a point of particular emphasis for the organization in its endeavors in the Dota 2 world. The organization has also previously dipped into European talent pools when to fill out its roster, with current midlaner Linus “Limmp” Blomdin hailing from Sweden. With that in mind, it’s somewhat hard to predict what the team’s lineup will look like heading into the 2018-2019 season, though we will likely find out soon with the registration deadline fast approaching.
