After lining out for Splyce this weekend in the CyberPowerPC Spring $5K Invitational, speculation was rife that Jack "Shake" Kaplan would be parting ways with his longtime teammates at compLexity. Today, sources close to the team confirmed to over.gg that he is leaving the team on good terms. As per sources, Shake will not be continuing his trial with Splyce, but will consider other opportunities instead.
Shake has been a core member of the roster that would eventually be signed by compLexity since joining just a couple of days after the game's release. He would go on to demonstrate outstanding support play throughout this time with the team and become considered as one of the best in North America. Like his former teammate, harbleu, who left compLexity back in March for NRG, it had often been suggested that his talent has been obscured by poor team performances.
compLexity, who just recently signed Meza as main tank, have yet to reveal who they are considering to replace Shake, and are currently down both a flex and a support player. The team are hosting an AMA on r/CompetitiveOverwatch that starts in just over two hours from now.
The compLexity Gaming roster is currently:
- Jake "torkTJO" Lepoff (DPS)
- Nicolas "NicolasTJO" Aubin (Flex)
- Mihail "Meza" Păunescu (Tank)
- Joe "Joemeister" Gramano (Support)
