American esports organization Complexity has zeroed in on star Australian rifler Justin "jks" Savage to become the fifth member of their active roster, according to multiple sources. He will fill the spot left empty by Owen "oBo" Schlatter who stepped down late last month.

Jks has been a member of 100 Thieves for nearly a year after playing with the Renegades organization for over four years. During his time with the Oceanic core on Renegades, he helped them win the StarLadder i-League Invitational #2 in 2017 as well as a semifinal appearance at the StarLadder Berlin Major last year. He is widely regarded as one of the most skilled and well-rounded players in professional Counter-Strike.

Complexity debuted their new "Juggernaut" lineup late last year with the acquisitions of Benjamin "blameF" Bremer, Will "RUSH" Wierzba, Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke, Valentin "poizon" Vasilev, while retaining oBo on the roster. They were only able to play at two offline events before the ongoing coronavirus pandemic restricted play to online only. They finished 4th-6th at BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Regular Season and reached the semifinals at DreamHack Open Anaheim 2020.

Losing jks means 100 Thieves now have no head coach and only four active players at this time. Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad has received a number of offers but at this point in time, no transfer has been agreed upon for his services, according to multiple sources.
