This is the second time in the last three months that Complexity has faced the need to find an urgent replacement. In September, after Owen "oBo" Schlatter's unexpected return to the U.S., coach Jamie "keita" Hall played in closed qualification for DreamHack Open Fall 2020, and Niels-Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen replaced the young American at ESL Pro League Season 12 and IEM New York 2020.
Recall, IEM Global Challenge 2020 will be held from December 15 to 20. Complexity will play in Group A along with Vitality, Astralis and BIG. The first opponent for Benjamin "blameF" Bremer's team will be the Danish team.
