Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert will stand in for Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland on the compLexity Counter-Strike: Global Offensive lineup during the ESL Pro League.
CompLexity CEO Jason Lake announced the decision Thursday in his weekly YouTube show, explaining that Rickeh would be unable to compete in the CS:GO event because of problems in obtaining his visa.
“Jordan ‘nothing’ Gilbert’s going to be subbing in for us," Lake said, "and we’re very thankful that he lives out on the West Coast and is willing to play, and obviously has a lot of familiarity with the squad as he just played (with them) at the Major.
It’s another example of an unfortunate set of circumstances that leads us to using a sub in the roster, but hopefully we can just go out there and surprise some people and see how it goes."
N0thing has appeared in CS:GO lineups sporadically since announcing his desire to leave the game behind. This marks the second time he has stood in for compLexity, having previously played with the team through the IEM Katowice Major.
The team will field both n0thing and Hunter "SicK" Mims, the player it acquired March 22 as his replacement.
Renegades' roster was also recently affected by visa troubles, forcing it to field Owen "smooya" Butterfield and Stephen "reltuC" Cutler for varying lengths of time in the ESL Pro League.
