compLexity Gaming’s 10th Anniversary Counter-Strike Tournament

BY Andrew Miesner / October 16, 2013

Today everyone at compLexity Gaming is thrilled to announce the celebration of our 10th Anniversary.  Ten years ago, Jason Lake set out to create a global eSports Syndicate that would “redefine the evolution of sports.”  Since that time we’ve been home to some of the very best competitive gamers in the world and we are very proud of our long list of accomplishments.

We’re pleased to release a video that celebrates many highlights of our decade run in gaming, and we’d like to sincerely thank and honor those many people who have contributed parts of their lives to the “compLexity Dream.”



In order to properly celebrate this special event, we have decided to return to our roots.  We’re proud to announce, in conjunction with Sound Blaster and, our $10,000 10th Anniversary CS:GO Tournament, hosted by CEVO and casted by the legendary Vansilli.  The event will take place November 9-10, 2013.  You can find details and registration HERE.

“It’s been an incredible decade,” said Jason Lake, Founder and CEO of compLexity Gaming.  “Words are not sufficient to express the gratitude I have for those who have taken this journey with me.  Special thanks to the fans, our gamers and staff, and to Jason Bass for making compLexity a dream worth living.  Thanks to Sound Blaster for its loyal support and to Twitch and CEVO for making our anniversary tournament a reality.  I’m looking forward to some great Counter-Strike action.  Bring me the pistols!”

A sincere thank you to the thousands of fans who have supported our gaming family for the past 10 years.  The games have changed over time but your loyal support has not.  You have always been the backbone of The Syndicate.   Thank you.
