compLexity has dropped their entire roster before DPC 2019-2020 season kicks off. 

The North American squad had a rocky year with multiple issues ranging from visas to roster stability. The team's last appearance in the DPC was at MDL DisneyLand Major where they took a disappointing 9-12th place and then made a last roster change just days later replacing trial player Jaron “monkeys-forever” Clinton with South American free agent Otávio 'tavo' Gabriel.

They ended the season with only 153 points and then failed to qualify for TI9, placing 6th in the regional qualifier. 

 Zakari "Zfreek" Freedman had been with the organization for a full five years - a rarity in the revolving door of roster changes and team swaps. He played the bulk of that time with his brother Kyle 'Kyle/swindlemelonzz' Freedman who was released from compLexity Gaming just over a year ago in March 2018. 

North America is already on the low end of proper team organizations that sponsor Dota 2 and struggles to maintain their presence on the international stage, often fielding only 2 top contenders usually - Evil Geniuses and one other that often changes. 

It appears that compLexity may not even have a team in the season, or get a very late start. This is a potential blow to NA fans who were looking forward to having another team to root for. It also limits options for NA players looking to compete.

The region had zero Valve sponsored events or ANY Dota 2 LANs in the last season as well, but both Midas Mode and ESL (hinted at after the announcement of The International 2020 being in Stockholm) are slated for bringing action and some life to the region.

Last compLexity Gaming roster:

Singapore  Galvin "Meracle" Kang Jian Wen
Sweden Linus "Limmp" Blomdin
Brazil Otávio 'tavo' Gabriel
United States Zakari "Zfreek" Freedman
Malaysia Adam "Adam" Shah
