Just last week we announced the move into the world of The Witcher’s standalone card game, Gwent. With Merchant and superjj anchoring the division, we’ve spent the weeks leading up to the announcement scouting the scene for other talent that could be a good fit to the coL Familia. Today we are happy to announce that we’ve found one – all the way down under in Australia. Say hello to the newest compLexity member Mark “Petrify” Fittipaldi.
Petrify has been in gaming for forever, pursuing the dream of becoming a professional player in various titles. In the Australian scene he was both a high-rated Starcraft 2 player as a Zerg, and later a high level CS:GO player. For the past few months the priority has shifted from the likes of Cache and Mirage to the virtual board of Gwent. After he began to take Gwent seriously and make it his next competitive adventure, Petrify stormed to the pinnacle of the ladder several times with the most notable placement being the top ladder spot for roughly two weeks in June, as well as an open cup win in the Good Gaming tournaments.
“I believe Petrify is a great fit for our young Gwent roster. He embodies everything we look for in a typical compLexity player, he has the passion for esports, a drive to compete at all times and reach the highest level – and he has shown that he values loyalty in an organization. We as an org value those same traits, therefore it was an easy decision to make Mark our third player for the Gwent roster!”

“I’ve always been a huge fan of compLexity since watching QXC in SC2 and joining them has been nothing short of a dream come true for me. The future of Gwent looks very promising and I am extremely excited to represent compLexity alongside SuperJJ and Merchant!”
