compLexity on FIRE
posted by Blue_Knight, 2 years ago
The competitive scene heats up another degree, as the rising American powerhouse are picked up by one of eSports most prestigious sponsors.
They exploded onto the scene little over a month ago and have so far burned nearly everyone who have got in their way. Now, after such a hot streak of form, team FIRE have deservingly found themselves a sponsor in compLexity Gaming, in a deal which was recently teased on Twitter and just announced on MOBA Weekly.
For a previously unheard of team to emerge and so quickly blaze a trail to the top tier of DotA is unprecedented, but FIRE have so far proved themselves to be amazingly talented, and forged what could be the beginning of a legacy in these early days of Dota 2's history. Having won the Infused Cup from the loser brackets, qualifying for the final four of the Dota2Replay's Brawl, and being invited to participate in the Premier League, they are undoubtedly one of the best teams competing at the moment.
Speaking exclusively to joinDOTA on behalf of compLexity on their new signing, MOBA Weekly host Darthozzan, said:
It’s obvious that compLexity has a special affinity for the genre, given that we broadcast the MOBA Weekly show, and we have been looking to get in to Dota 2 for a long time. There’s a lot that goes into a acquiring a new team though, and the fit has to be right. We only want the best at compLexity, and we believe coL.DotA will be able to set the DotA world ablaze. They have recently proven themselves, and the sky is the limit for this team as North American DotA continues to grow and expand. This is an especially good fit for us, considering the American heritage of compLexity. In this signing we hope that we will start a new era, and show the world the legitimacy of North American DotA.
In addition, compLexity CEO Jason Lake declared:
We're thrilled to be part of the DotA community once again. Dota 2 has brought new life to the genre and it's only appropriate that we field a global contender. We've done our homework and spoken with lots of teams. We're confident in this roster and expect big things.
And speaking on behalf of his team, Brian 'chappy' Chapman, the manager, said:
We simply could not be more honoured to join such a prestigious eSports icon. Complexity has always been the beacon of North American eSports and we proudly join the players before us in continuing its tradition of excellence, dedication and respect. Our goals are aligned and we look forward to realizing them together, ensuring that North American DotA is a force to be reckoned with, and that it's here to stay.
