Complexity Gaming has announced the signing of ex-100 Thieves player Justin "jks" Savage. The Australian will take Owen "oBo" Schlatter's place. OBo left Complexity as he prefers to play in the American region, so he decided to return home from Europe, where the club is currently performing.
For jks, this will be the first experience of playing for a non-Australian roster. Prior to Complexity, he played for Vox Eminor, Renegades, and 100 Thieves. His debut will take place at BLAST Premier Fall Series against Team Vitality. You can read more in the article made by our FPS specialist Felix "Frog" Bergeron:

Cyber Legacy to disband?
Idan "MagicaL" Vardanyan, Cyber Legacy's player, announced his departure from the organization. He disclosed the reasons on his VK.com page.
“Cyber Legacy's manager approached me with a proposal to assemble a new roster. Having missed competitive Dota and teamwork, I fired up this idea. After assembling the line-up, I really believed in the guys, and everyone did their best. A month later, the team had misunderstandings with the organization, which affected the atmosphere, and there was tension within the team. The training process was no longer productive. The organization partly failed to fulfill its earlier obligations. I began to notice that the players had lost confidence in the organization and in each other. After the first official game, we stopped playing queue matches together, the atmosphere was heating up in training and it got worse. We decided to leave the clarification of all the problems and discuss them after the tournament. Missing the playoffs and being kicked from the tournament quickly did brake everyone, and only a day later we phoned each other and decided not to play together. Considering the dissatisfaction with the organizational work of CyberLegacy, I say goodbye to them!
Now I train a lot, I want to improve my game as much as possible and move on."
There is no information about where MagicaL's career will continue.
