compLexity Gaming Announces Roster Changes in Dota 2
compLexity Gaming has made some roster changes in its Dota 2 lineup. David “Moonmeander” Tan and Adam Shah have joined the team, while Rasmus “Chessie” Blomdin has been released. With these changes, the new compLexity lineup includes Moonmeander, Adam, Zakari “Zfreek” Freedman, Linus “Limmp” Blomdin, and David “Moo” Hull.
Background and Recent Struggles
compLexity had been using stand-ins Martin “Saksa” Sazdov and Kartik “kitrak” Rathi after removing Kyle Freedman from the roster in March due to “personality conflicts.” However, the team faced difficulties and failed to qualify for several tournaments. They also had a less than stellar performance in their only offline event, placing top 10 out of 12 teams in the EPICENTER XL event.
A Needed Change
Recognizing the need for change, compLexity decided to part ways with Chessie, identifying him as more of a problem than a solution. This decision means Chessie will be searching for a new team for the first time in nearly three years. In his place, the team has brought in Adam and Moonmeander, both players with extensive experience. Adam, who previously coached Fnatic, brings a fresh perspective to compLexity.
These signings also mark a homecoming for both Adam and Moonmeander. While Adam previously served as coL’s coach, Moonmeander competed in his first The International as part of compLexity in 2015. They will now aim to make a stronger impact on the team.
