The host asked the players a slew of questions in a humorous segment before playing, inquiring as to how Wall went about seeking the team’s talent and how the organization came to be America's best in Clash Royale.
“You recruited the rest?” he asked Wall. “Where did you find them? Did you just search in basements everywhere?”
The team answered his queries in good humor, and even gifted him a custom jersey toward the end of the stream. Conan appeared to be genuinely curious about their lifestyle, and had them explain their team house, warmup strategies, and Clash Royale’s mechanics as they played.
This isn’t O’Brien’s first foray into the gaming world, either. He likewise interviewed popular YouTuber Pewdiepie, and even played Far Cry: Primal with the gamer on his show ‘Clueless Gamer.’
Complexity is currently the number one team in America for Clash Royale, and features competitors in Counter-Strike, Dota 2, Fortnite, and more.
