FRISCO, Texas – September 9, 2021 – Complexity Gaming, one of North America’s most elite and longest-standing esports organizations, today announced the signing of GX3, one of the top women’s VALORANT squads, forming “Complexity GX3.” In addition to competing in the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) Game Changers circuit, Complexity GX3 will champion gender equality in esports and gaming.

“GX3 uniquely embodies our organization’s core values, and we’re thrilled to welcome them into the Complexity family,” said Jason Lake, Founder & CEO, Complexity Gaming, and Global Head of Esports, GameSquare. “The squad’s competitive credentials coupled with their growing platform for female empowerment have the potential to shake up the gaming world in a major way.”

The addition of Complexity GX3 marks the organization’s first-ever all-women roster and second VALORANT team. Hailing from a variety of competitive backgrounds in Counter-Strike, Apex Legends, and Fortnite, team members include:

  • Alimonstr: A long-time Counter-Strike professional and six-time Esports World Cup Champion, Alimonstr formed GX3 in 2002 and established the team’s presence in VALORANT for her venture into the game.
  • Aniemal: In addition to competing for GX3, Aniemal is currently a VALORANT streamer and content creator for Complexity.
  • maddiesuun: Previously a part of the first all-female Fornite team, Gen.G’s Team Bumble, maddiesuun has extensive experience competing professionally and mentoring young gamers.
  • akaL4CE: An up-and-coming VALORANT professional, akaL4CE’s raw talent has shown immense competitive potential that’s earned her the position of GX3’s recon.
  • One additional team member to be announced.

“We strive to leave a lasting legacy on the esports world both competitively and culturally,” said Alimonstr. “Signing with a reputable and supportive organization like Complexity will not only equip us with tools to enhance our performance but also a platform to kick start important industry conversations about instilling change.”

GX3’s Alimonstr and maddiesuun have been staunch supporters of inclusivity and their impact has already been felt in the space. Throughout her nearly two decades in the industry, Alimonstr has inspired countless young women to pursue professional careers in esports and gaming. Meanwhile, her teammate maddiesuun helped to evolve the gaming scene for women during her time with Gen.G’s Team Bumble. With the support of Complexity, the all-female team will build upon this foundation to create a more accepting and supportive community. Through forthcoming initiatives, Complexity GX3 will take actionable steps to eliminate toxicity as well as partner with charitable organizations and female-forward brands to break down barriers and empower female gamers.

Complexity GX3 is the organization’s 10th active roster across nine different game titles. It’s a testament to the Complexity management team’s expertise in scouting organic gaming talent, recruiting players, and then helping to mold them into premier esports athletes. To further hone their skills, Complexity GX3 will have access to the plethora of performance tools, health and wellness resources, and recovery amenities available at Complexity’s state-of-the-art headquarters, the GameStop Performance Center (GSPC). Complexity will also equip the squad with Herman Miller Embody Gaming Chairs to ensure they can compete and train comfortably.

Complexity GX3 will debut at the VCT Game Changers Qualifier on September 24. To keep up with the squad, follow Complexity on Twitter.
