The North American squad brings in regional veterans and imports some SEA talent to round out its lineup for the 2018-2019 campaign.
The much anticipated reveal of the new compLexity Gaming lineup has finally arrived, as the North American organization has made an official announcement regarding its roster for the 2018-2019 Pro Circuit season. The team had quite a few vacancies to fill on its roster, as David “Moo” Hull, David “MoonMeander” Tan, and Adam “Adam” Shah had all left the team fairly early into the offseason period. In their place, compLexity Gaming announced the addition of free agents Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu and Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao, as well as former Geek Fam Carry Rolen Andrei Gabriel “Skemberlu” Ong.
Sneyking and EternaLEnVy are both veterans of the Dota 2 world, with careers in the game dating back to 2012. However, the 2 players walked somewhat different paths during the previous Pro Circuit season. Sneyking played in the North American region, and was a part of the VGJ.Storm roster that made that incredible Cinderella run through TI8 to finish in the 7th-8th place position. Meanwhile, EternaLEnVy spent last season in the Southeast Asian region as a member of Fnatic, helping that squad secure a place near the top of the regional hierarchy and make an appearance of its own at TI8, though it was somewhat less successful with a 13th-16th place finish overall. The 2 players bring a wealth of experience in the Dota 2 world to the roster of compLexity Gaming, although 1 of them will be adjusting to a new position this season, as EternaLEnVy is actually set to serve as the team’s Support player and Captain.
As for the final addition to the compLexity Gaming roster, he makes his first appearance in North America with a bit less experience under his belt. Skemberlu’s career dates back to 2016, and he has so far only played within the Southeast Asian region and for relatively minor organizations. He spent the first half of the previous season on the roster of Geek Fam, but left the team in March to close out the season with TaskUs Titans. Neither squad was able to make an appearance on the Pro Circuit, though Skemberlu did help Geek Fam earn a handful of Top 4 qualifier finishes during the season. While his teams did not prove to be overly successful, Skemberlu displayed an impressive level of skill last season, and that skill attracted attention from other organizations. The Filipino Carry is still relatively unproven on outside of the Southeast Asian region, but compLexity Gaming has to have high hopes that he will be able to adjust and adapt quickly as the team prepares to fight for a place at the top in North America.
