ADVERTISING:"Justin has expressed that he no longer wishes to continue"
compLexity Gaming appear to have been put in an awkward situation following the sudden departure of Justin 'Justin' Roselle just 3 weeks before they are set to fly to the Boston Major, and 36 hours ahead of their flight to the Northern Arena LAN in Montreal.
“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.
coL apologise for switching players mid-match
"Feels good," was Justin's only tweet since the announcement. Justin's decision to leave means coL are now one player short for the Boston Major and will need to find a substitute. CoL in fact were forced to swap players mid-match in their game yesterday against Cloud9*, with Jaron 'Monkeys-Forever' Clinton coming in to play for Justin in the third game after coL were 2-0 down.
Finally we would like to say sorry. Sorry to Team NP, to ESL, our fans and the viewers of tonight’s match. Respect for competition is one the pillars upon which the compLexity organization was built. Despite it being the only option available to us, swapping to a substitute mid-match is something that impacted the quality of the competition, and for that we apologize.
compLexity will be playing the Northern Arena Beat Invitational with a stand-in, and said in their announcement they will "be speaking with Valve to discuss how to best proceed with respect to the Boston Major", a tournament Justin aided the team to qualify for.
The amended substitute rules for this Major season state that if a team wishes to play the Major with a substitute, the current "main player", in this case Justin, must "yield" his spot to the nominated substitute. This has already been done by Execration with Rafael 'Rapy' Palo yielding his spot to Adam Erwann 'Adam / 343' Shah for the Boston Major.

What's with the Justin hate. I watched 7 coL replays yesterday. I did not think Justin was their reason for losing games— EternaLEnVy (@EternaLEnVy1991) 7 November 2016
The decision comes just 2 weeks after the team uploaded a video of their celebration for Justin's birthday. Justin joined compLexity along with Mihai 'canceL' Vasile and David 'Moo' Hull just seven weeks ago on the 17th September.
