Following a disappointing exit from the StarLadder Major in Berlin, compLexity’s founder and CEO Jason Lake took to Twitter in search of better results.
After a day one nail biting 16-14 loss to AVANGAR in their opener, compLexity fared even worse in the second match of the day in a 16-5 defeat at the hands of HellRaisers. They managed to bounce back with a 2-0 victory over TYLOO, dominating the Chinese team on Vertigo after an overtime match on Overpass.
Jason Lake clearly had a surge of hope at that point, tweeting “that’s the squad I thought we were bringing to Berlin.”
It appears that squad went missing again today as compLexity took a swift 2-0, only managing four rounds on their map pick of Inferno as the Aussies of Grayhound outclassed them North American side at every turn.
The reaction from Lake is a stern one as he claimed “I love our players as individuals but these results won’t be tolerated.” While many owners or coaches may have stopped there, Lake explained exactly what he meant.
“If you’re a Tier 1 player looking for a fresh start at the best facility in the world, HMU. I’ll pay your buyout and give you the world’s highest salaries,” he continued. Lake is tired of losing and this tweet shows just how exhausted he is.
compLexity has fielded some of the top North American teams in Counter-Strike history throughout the years but have been unable to do so over the last several in CS:GO.
After a few moments and several responses calling the tweet unprofessional and harming to the players, Lake took time to clarify he’d spoken with the team before making the tweet.
The future of compLexity is unknown, but there’s no doubt sacrifices will be made and there will most likely be casualties of war as they battle to get to the top once more.
