Just days after their removal from OpTic Gaming, Peter ‘stanislaw’ Jarguz and Shahzeeb ‘ShahZaM’ Khan have joined a new team, gone unbeaten in official matches, and qualified for DreamHack Summer 2018.
April has been a tough month for stanislaw and ShahZaM. The two North American players were rather unceremoniously released from the OpTic Gaming CS:GO team amid a storm of rumors and bad blood on April 24th.
OpTic opted to go for a full Danish roster instead, bringing in Heroic’s benched AWP star, Jakob ‘JUGi’ Hansen, and in-game leader, Marco ‘Snappi’ Pfeiffer, to replace them along with former North coah Casper ‘ruggah’ Due to replace Chet 'ImAPet' Singh.
A number of comments made after the roster announcement made it clear that the North American side of the team had struggled to get along with the Danish contingent which resulted in a rift that the Danes believed could not be fixed.
But it isn’t all doom and gloom for stanislaw and ShahZaM as they have already been picked up by compLexity Gaming and have seen instant success.
In fact, they have already won their first three official matches, all in 2-0 fashion, against Mythic, eUnited, and Rogue in order to secure a spot at DreamHack Summer 2018.
Check out the final moments from our #coLcs victory as we qualify for @DreamHack Summer!

The excellent result comes in spite of the fact that the team had not had any chance to practice since picking up the two former OpTic men.
DreamHack Summer 2018 is due to take place in Jönköping, Sweden, from June 16th – 18th and will feature an impressive $100,000 prize pool.
The compLexity players will be joined by the mixed European team of Imperial and six invitees that are yet to be announced.
The compLexity Gaming CS:GO Roster now consists of:
- Peter ‘stanislaw’ Jarguz
- Shahzeeb ‘ShahZaM’ Khan
- Rory ‘dephh’ Jackson
- Jaccob ‘yay’ Whiteaker
- Bradley ‘ANDROID-X23’ Fodor
