Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
The Canadian IGL's star rose in 2016 with successful stints in the first iteration of Optic Gaming in Counter-Strike, Stan led that team not only to the TV studio for ELEAGUE, but also major appearances at ESL One: Cologne 2016 and ELEAGUE Major: Atlanta 2017. Multiple premier events and big LAN stages later, he is ready and poised to build up a team and led them along on the road to glory in global CS:GO.
ShahZaM been a stable AWPer in the NA CSGO scene for years now, recognized as one of the best players in this region with the powerful weapon. As a player he's been on the biggest stages the game has to offer, including CSGO majors in Katowice and Boston, as well as the nationally televised ELEAGUE Road to Vegas events - with the brightest lights on him. He knows how to compete under the biggest spotlight and excels with the pressure put on his shoulders.

Rory has traveled all the way from the United Kingdom to compete in the US, with desires to achieve big things. Rory's been playing games since he was a kid, but has always been drawn to the competitive side of gaming. Rory hopes to bring a positive attitude and a fresh vibe to the new coL.cs lineup.
The year was 2015 when the world first took notice of Rickeh. As a youngster on Immunity, facing elimination from the Cologne Major, Rickeh frags out and pops off against Kinguin, under all the pressure. It was the moment Rickeh’s star ascended. The rest is history with Ricardo playing in the Oceanic region for a while longer before making the jump to CLG into the bigger pond of North America. Not a little fish anymore, he quickly made his name here too, leading him to yet another major berth in 2018, with a trip to London, England to challenge the best teams in the world once more. Katowice will give him that opportunity yet again, alongside his new teammates at compLexity.
Matt "Warden" Dickens is a legend in the Counter-Strike community and is one of the original members of compLexity Counter-Strike. Matt has competed in the game since inception and has been a part of some of the most iconic moments in esports history. Now, he looks to mentor a team of young talent as they begin their journey to the upper echelon of North American CS.
It's a reunion of sorts, as the 20-year-old phenom from Las Vegas, Nevada returns to compLexity Gaming, where he reunites with both ShahZaM and Rickeh. In 2017 and 2018, he previously played with ShahZaM both on TSM and Misfits. In that time, he gathered additional experience and honed his skill, which he was able to apply alongside another future compLexity player in Rickeh during their time on Rogue.
