compLexity CSGO and Uber Part Ways

  • -

compLexity has parted ways with Michael "Uber" Stapells according to an announcement from the organization and the player himself. 

From compLexity: "Today we are announcing a change to our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster. Effective immediately Michael "Uber" Stapells will be released from the compLexity Counter-Strike roster. We’re very grateful to have had Uber play for compLexity over the last six months, and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors."

Uber had joined a struggling compLexity back in August and things have not become much better for the squad. The coL team currently sits with a record of 1-9 in the ESL Pro League. Although the team managed to qualify for DreamHack Masters Las Vegas recently, the tournament saw coL get smashed by powerhouse teams like No. 1 Astralis and No. 6 North.

compLexity goes on to state that it will be holding tryouts over the next several weeks to determine a fifth. A lack of free agents in the North American Counter-Strike makes slim pickings for the organization.

As many of you have probably seen, compLexity has decided to make a change within the team and as a result I will no longer be playing for them.

The team has been struggling a lot recently, that's no secret. Internally we've had problems for a few months now which gradually over time have gotten worse, and took a big toll on our play. I have nothing but good things to say about the team, Matt (our coach) and compLexity's management. The way this was handled was very professional and i'd like to thank them for that. I'd also like to thank them for providing me with some memories that i'll never forget. Travelling and living with these guys was a huge learning experience for me, something that I do not take for granted.

Moving forward, i'm officially a free agent and will be looking for a new team.
