Bulgarian AWPer Valentin ‘poizon’ Vasilev is heavily considering a move to the Complexity organization, according to multiple sources close to the team and player.

Dexerto recently reported his discussions with the OG organization but can confirm he is looking towards Complexity following a substantial offer for his services, as first reported by CS:GO insider neL.

Complexity announced the benching of Shahzeeb ‘ShahZaM’ Khan and the release of Rory ‘dephh’ Jackson in an announcement yesterday.

The move leaves open two spots on their active roster.

One spot has been reported to possibly go to Kristian ‘k0nfig’ Wienecke, while the other looks to have been filled by poizon should things proceed as planned.

Poizon currently features for Windigo Gaming.

Poizon currently plays for the Windigo organization, who are now a mixed European majority roster. He originally joined Windigo towards the end of 2018, after a stint with BPro Gaming. 

Complexity CEO Jason Lake vowed to change the direction of his counter-strike team following their exit at the StarLadder Berlin Major in late August.

The tweet drew substantial criticism, but has not stopped them from recruiting big names in the space.

Should poizon and k0nfig join the active lineup, the Complexity roster will become:

  • Benjamin ‘blameF’ Bremer
  • Owen ‘oBo’ Schlatter 
  • Will ‘RUSH’ Wierzba
  • Kristian ‘k0nfig’ Wienecke
  • Valentin ‘poizon’ Vasilev

How GeT_RiGHT became CSGO’s first God

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund became the first god of the game by dazzling a generation of players, propelling the game’s meta by years, and leaving a historic mark not to be outdone anytime soon.

Since 2010, before CS:GO ever hit the market, GeT_RiGhT was already terrorizing teams in 1.6 with fellow Swede Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg. Since their early 20s, the duo would rampage through events during their stints at Fnatic and SK Gaming.

If his career would have stopped in the 1.6 servers, his name would have still carried weight through the esports annals -but then, Global Offensive came out in 2012, where he would ascend to even greater heights of notoriety.

From the start, GeT_RiGhT would prove to be an instrumental force to reshape the Counter-Strike meta, specializing in dangerous lurks that would tilt opponents or catch them off guard.

It was risky, but so was his modus operandi. When early CS:GO pros would perfect their taps for long-range kills, he would hold Mouse1 to mow down entire teams with pinpoint recoil mastery.

He would soon be known for his multi-kills from a distance, without the need for consecutive fires, instead electing for choice bullet accuracy to push his team forward.

The #1 player in the world in 2013 and 2014, GeT_RiGhT, and the rest of the reformed Ninjas in Pyjamas that included Adam ‘Friberg,’ Robin ‘Fifflaren’ Johansson, Forest, and Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström would create an astounding 87-0 map win run.

GeT_RiGhT would go on to have an illustrious career filled with trophies, titles, and glory, becoming the first god of CS:GO along the way.
