Complexity Gaming is reportedly looking to acquire 100 thieves’ star player Justin “jks” Savage. The 24-year-old would be filling in the slot left vacant by Owen “oBo” Schlatter.
The North American organization is set to obtain jks in its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive lineup, according to DBLTAP. jks is currently an active member of 100 Thieves roster, although a better offer might have convinced him to switch teams.
jks and company played together for over three years, first at Renegades, and later at 100 Thieves. Despite their coordination, the team has failed to win any major titles for 100 Thieves this far. The last glimpse of action from the roster was seen in Extreme Masters XIV Beijing, where the team managed a respectable second-place finish.
Despite the team’s middling performance over time, jks has managed to make quite the highlight reel during his time at 100T. The star rifler posted an average rating of 1.16, which is the highest on his team. jks has not only been the best player on the roster, but the lurker’s crisp aim earned him a spot on HLTV’s top 20 players list.
obo’s sudden exit from Complexity Gaming’s CSGO roster left the team in a difficult state. The North American organization had to acquire the services of Niels Christian “NaToSaphiX” Sillassen as obo decided to quit in the middle of ESL Pro League, leaving the team with only four players. Complexity hit the servers of IEM Neywork 2020 with its previous roster plus NaToSaphix.
Complexity has seen promising results with its revamped “juggernaut” roster, though the team dealt with losses in several tournaments including ESL Pro League 2020 and Dreamhack Open Fall. obo has contributed much to the team’s success in different events. His departure left the organization with a challenge of finding a suitable replacement.
With jks’ exit, 100 Thieves’ core structure looks even shakier as the team’s coach Chet “Chet” Singh has recently migrated to Valorant. The current roster now lacks both a lurker and a coach, leaving the team with four players and an uncertain future.
Neither the teams nor jks has made an official announcement thus far. Complexity founder and CEO Jason Lake has dropped several hints about developments in his organization’s CSGO division.
Take heart & be encouraged #COLCS fans.
You’re going be very happy before Halloween.
