Jks to Complexity Finally Confirmed After Weeks of Speculation
Complexity has confirmed a long-teased announcement that Justin “Jks” Savage would be joining their starting five in CSGO. The team began teasing the announcement earlier this month and seemed to indicate that it would be done on Halloween, but their timeline seemingly moved forward since Jarek “Dekay” Lewis leaked the move on DBLTAP.
Jks became available after 100 Thieves announced their departure from CSGO, citing the lack of a North American scene at present due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. On the other hand, Complexity is currently housing their team in Europe, meaning a much more ideal playing environment for Jks and crew to dominate from.
What Does Jks Bring to the Table for Complexity?
Complexity was lacking a 5th player after the sudden departure of oBo from their active roster. The young ace departed the team to be with his family and because the team was stationed in Europe. Jks should bring a depth of experience and knowledge to the table as he’s been competing for far longer than oBo was, as a member of both Renegades (consistently the best team out of Australia) and 100 Thieves, when the NA organization picked them up.
“Jks brings a unique layer of depth to our CSGO roster, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the Complexity Gaming family,” said Jason Lake, founder/CEO of Complexity Gaming. “While his skill and experience will be an instrumental piece of our starting five, his leadership qualities and determination will make him an indispensable resource out of the server, as well.”
Jks, age 24, has many impressive accomplishments during his time on the server. He’s been playing CSGO since 2013 and was even involved in the 1.6 scene briefly as part of Team Exile5. During his time with Renegades, the team won four successive Asia Minor championships, the StarLadder i-League Invitational, and placed second with 100 Thieves at both ESL Pro League Season 12 and IEM Masters 14 Beijing.
“Complexity Gaming is one of the most decorated teams in Counter-Strike with an emphasis on creating a player-first atmosphere,” Jks said. “I’m looking forward to being a part of that and to competing with my new teammates.”
Complexity has come a long way in a short amount of time. Since putting together the juggernaut roster of William “Rush” Wierzba, Kristian “K0nfig”Wienecke, Valentin “poizon” Vasilev, and Benjamin “BlameF” Bremer the team has placed very well, winning the BLAST Premier Spring 2020 EU finals, and placing 4-6 at the BLAST Premier regular season. They’ve been lacking while oBo was having issues, but hope to turn that around with Jks.
Complexity is one of the oldest brands in Counter-Strike, and one of the few remaining organizations from the days of the Championship Gaming Series. They’ve had a harrowing journey to get to this point. The future with Jks in tow is looking brighter than ever.
