Thank You, Warden

Today, we part ways with one of our longest-tenured team members, Matt “Warden” Dickens.

A legend in the Counter-Strike community, Matt was one of the original members of Complexity Counter-Strike. He had competed in the game since inception and has been a part of some of the most iconic moments in esports history. Over the past few years, Matt has been invaluable in his role as a coach, manager, and mentor to our players.

“When I took this job I never imagined it would turn into what it has.  We always dreamed it would, but I could never imagine what Complexity would build in Frisco, Texas.  I am very thankful for the greater part of a decade I was able to represent Complexity and wear the colors proudly.  I know it is time for a new adventure in my professional life.  Thanks to everyone who has supported me over the years and all the friendly faces I have met all over the world.  It is you who has kept me inspired and trying hard each and every day.  Having now served the Complexity brand as a player, coach, and manager I can honestly say I am proud to know the people at Complexity and the hard work they put into their jobs.  The heart and passion of your work never went unnoticed. To quote Frank Herbert, “There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.”

– Matt “Warden” Dickens

“Matt was one of the very first professional gamers I ever hired and our journey over 15+ years has been one I will always cherish. I’m very grateful to him for his massive contributions to the Complexity legacy and wish him and his wife the absolute best in the future. Thanks for everything, Wardino, and God speed old friend.”

– Jason Lake

We’d like to wish Matt nothing but the best going forward.
