The compLexity substitute player has been officially registered as Jaron “Monkeys-Forever” Clinton. The North American offlaner is already headed to Montreal for the Northern Arena BEAT Invitational this weekend and seems to be chosen to continue with the team for the Boston Major. Earlier last week, Justin ‘jk’ Rosselle was moved to inactive status after some internal concerns.

The compLexity substitute player has been revealed as Jaron “Monkeys-Forever” Clinton.
compLexity was down one player after Justin ‘jk’ Rosselle separated from the team during the series against Team NP for ESL One Genting 2017.
Over the past two months the coL.Dota team has been training and competing in a large amount of events. Weeks upon weeks of practice and matches naturally lead to stress in players and teams. Unfortunately in this case, despite efforts to alleviate stress and remedy interpersonal issues, Justin has expressed that he no longer wishes to continue in his position as a player for our team.

The new substitute role allows changes to take place effortlessly. Any player that is not attending the major may join any team already confirmed as the substitute. Primary and substitute players can swap roles as long as the primary player agrees.
The North American team turned to Jaron “MonkeysForever” Clinton to substitute for the team for the Northerna Arena BEAT Invitational LAN this weekend in Montreal.
At that time it was unknown if Monkeys-Forever would be stepping in for the Boston Major as well but has since secured his place with the squad for the big event.
Monkeys-Forever is an American player most known for his time with Team Archon. He participated in the Shanghai Major taking 13-16th place after finishing last in the group stage with no wins.
For most of The International 6 regional qualifiers, coL looked confident, consistent and composed. Had they not dropped a game to FDL during the Round Robin stage, they would have been the first team to qualify for the main event in the Americas region. Unfortunately, they were left with a Wild Card spot and, once in Seattle, they failed to advance to the group stage and main event.
Following TI6, The compLexity Gaming 2017 roster brought three new faces to the organization. David “Moo” Hull, Justin “jk” Rosselle and Antonio “canceL^^” Mihai joined core members Kyle “melonzz” Freedman and Zakari “Zfreek” Freedman.
