A lot has happened since we last took a look at compLexity ahead of ESL One Manila and the two Americans and three Swedes have been busy traveling the globe. From ESL One Manila to Moscow for Epicenter, only to soon return to Manila for the Manila Major, eventually followed by ESL One Frankfurt 2016. compLexity have been enjoying life on the road and hopefully jetlag won’t catch up with them any time soon, because at the level they are playing, their world tour won’t end any time soon.

Looking at the NA scene at the moment, it would be fair to say that compLexity are on top of it all, with both Evil Geniuses and Team Secret adjusting to their newly formed squads and Digital Chaos only recently qualifying for major tournaments. While their NA competitors are taking their time to get the ball rolling, compLexity have been playing in just about every qualifier out there and they have been winning them all. Hard work pays off for the team that opted not to make any rash roster changes ahead of the Manila Major. As swindlezz said a in a recent interview, the teams that have played together for a while are getting stronger now. Just look at the likes of Liquid, Alliance and OG - compLexity fit right in. And we’ll see them all at ESL One Frankfurt.

Recent performances

compLexity have not had their big break-through just yet, but while other teams do miss out on a tournament here and there, coL have been ever present at recent major tournaments. And one of the major talking points regarding their recent play must be their thrilling 2-0 victory over Evil Geniuses at Epicenter. Do we sense a change of powers at the top of the NA scene?

Recent matchups against ESL One Frankfurt teams

Out of all ESL One Frankfurt contestants, they have played the most games in recent months and they will certainly not be caught off guard in Frankfurt. Therefore they have already gotten the chance to test themselves against many of their Frankfurt opponents, potentially allowing them to come into the tournament with more insight than some of the other squads. But just like the rest of the Dota 2 scene, they are still looking for a way to challenge Team Liquid, who will certainly come into the tournament as the favorites to win it all.
