Last week we announced a player change within the compLexity CS:GO team, with no replacement yet in site. We anticipated that it would take longer than it has to fill the open AWP position on the team, but when it feels right, it feels right. We’re excited to announce today that we’re bringing a new American player into professional Counter-Strike. Please welcome, the newest member of compLexity, Jaccob ‘yay’ Whiteaker.
One of the new generation of CS:GO players, this will be yay’s first opportunity to occupy the primary AWP role, having split time in his previous MDL teams. He brings an aggressive and confident style, and hopes to be able to help the team rise back to the top of North American CS.
“When we began looking at new players for the AWP role, yay was not at the top of the list. It took just one practice session to change that opinion. Though Jaccob does not have the experience that some other player options possessed, he has demonstrated skills that are rarely found at even the highest levels of play. His youth may be just what is needed to rejuvenate the squad and kickstart our results in the upcoming season. We’re excited to be taking a chance on a young gun, and we hope it pays off!
