While the top two North American teams are duking it out in New York, Complexity is making money moves.
North American organization Complexity announced the signing of Benjamin "blameF" Bremer away from Heroic today in a tweet from their official Twitter account.

Bremer comes to Complexity from Danish esports organization Heroic, who signed the young talent in early January of 2019. Complexity's move comes after their unimpressive exit from the StarLadder Berlin Major, where they placed 20th-22nd. After their early exit, Complexity Gaming CEO Jason Lake took to Twitter to express his disappointment with the roster, intimating that changes were coming for the North American squad.
I love our players as individuals but these results won’t be tolerated.
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.
Let’s build a juggernaut.
Spread the word.

Soon after, Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland left the teamin early September. Bremer should function as his replacement and IGL in Complexity's CS:GO roster. In fact, despite Heroic's decidedly non-heroic performances, Bremer has been a bright spot in a roster devoid of results. His 1.24 HLTV rating led Heroic over the past five months, and he should function as an immediate upgrade to both Complexity's firepower and strategic game.
As of right now, Bremer is the only confirmed current member of Complexity Gaming, and there have been several rumors that no one is safe from replacement during Complexity's post-Major rebuild.
With Bremer's signing, Complexity's signed roster is as follows:
- Rory "dephh" Jackson
- Shahzeeb "ShahZam" Khan
- Hunter "SicK" Mims
- Owen "oBo" Schlatter
- Benjamin "blameF" Bremer
- Jaime "keita" Hall (coach)
