On Thursday, January 4, 2023, Complexity announced contract extensions with Ricky “floppy” Kemery, Johnny “JT” Theodosiou, Michael “Grim” Wince, and head coach Tiaan “T.c” Coertzen.

The specific details of the deal have not been revealed.

The new deals tie the founding members of Complexity’s current Counter-Strike line-up together for years to come.

While Complexity hasn’t shared the exact details, the new contracts cover multiple years.

The announcement did not mention the remaining two players on Complexity’s roster, Håkon “hallzerk” Fjærli and Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski.

However, both have time remaining on their contracts, having joined the team in July 2022 and June 2023, respectively.

The contract extensions come amid a turbulent period for the North American esports team, which found itself in a tricky situation following GameSquare’s intentions to acquire FaZe Clan.

While the deal has yet to be finalised, GameSquare’s purchase of FaZe could prevent one of the two teams from competing in some of the biggest CS events.

The contract extensions might indicate that GameSquare would retain the Complexity roster over FaZe Clan’s.

However, there’s a chance Complexity might also get a new (old) owner.

According to recent reports, the former owner of Complexity, Jason Lake, is searching for investors to reacquire the team he sold to GameSquare in 2021 as a part of an all-stock deal worth US $27 million.

Lake has yet to confirm his intentions; however, he has been on a roadshow to attract investors to finance the deal.

Initially, GameSquare planned to close the acquisition of FaZe Clan in Q4 of 2023; however, the deal will take months to complete, extending the saga, which puts the future of FaZe Clan and Complexity under a huge question mark.

While FaZe Clan accomplished much more in 2023, winning three of the five Counter-Strike 2 tournaments, Complexity has also undergone a massive resurgence.

Following a rough start to the year, Complexity claimed a gold medal from BLAST Premier: Fall American Showdown 2023, made the finals of Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023, and reached the semi-finals of BLAST Premier: Fall Final 2023 in November.

With Team Liquid forming a majority-European Counter-Strike roster featuring Casper “cadiaN” Møller and Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken, Complexity took over the top spot in the North American CS scene, 179 points clear of M80 in second.

Complexity will return to action next week at PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: North American Qualifier, set to begin on January 12, 2024.
