Complexity Gaming has signed Justin "jks" Savage from 100 Thieves, confirming reports regarding the move. Taking the rifler spot from Owen "oBo" Schlatter who parted ways with 100 Thieves to return to the United States, jks will be the fifth member of Complexity's active roster. This move will be jks' debut playing for non-Australian team.
Complexity Gaming Signs jks From 100 Thieves
The huge blow to the Australian scene is a blessing for the North American brand. "I have pretty big shoes to fill, but hopefully once I get to Europe and start playing with the guys, it will be a seamless transition," jks said in the Complexity announcement video. "Once we found out that they [100 Thieves] were going to let go of the team, I kind of got the word out. Jason [Lake] hit me up, said he was super interested, and it all happened pretty quickly. I know that if we do the things that we're supposed to do, I think we will be a pretty good team. Winning trophies is my number-one goal."
Deemed as one of the best CS:GO players in the world and was ranked the 15th best player of 2019 by HLTV, jks is the first Australian player to ever make it to HLTV's Top 20 Players of the Year. With the addition of the Australian superstar, Complexity's complete roster will be:
- William "RUSH" Wierzba
- Benjamin "blameF" Bremer
- Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke
- Valentin "poizon" Vasilev
- Justin "jks" Savage
- Jamie "keita" Hall (coach)
- Owen "oBo" Schlatter
Jks' debut with Complexity is on Oct. 29 when the team will be up against Vitality in their first match in the BLAST Premier Fall Series. IEM Beijing-Haidian (Nov. 6-22) and DreamHack Masters Winter (Nov. 30-Dec. 6) are in jks' next agenda.
