Owen “oBo” Schlatter has actually stepped away from Complexity’s CS: GO group, the org’s CEO Jason Lake announced today.

This news comes after Intricacy needed to use its head coach Jamie “keita” Hall rather of oBo in a DreamHack Open Fall closed qualifiers match versus Portuguese group sAw previously today. OBo has actually been one of the very best players on Intricacy considering that he signed with the North American organization last year when he was 15 years of ages.

The young skill, though, has supposedly been feeling homesick. Intricacy have been playing a number of competitions in Europe, which leaves oBo and Will “RUSH” Wierzba far from their home in the U.S. Lake said Complexity will try to move oBo to a North American-based team and is seeking to sign a 5th gamer.

“OBo has selected to bench himself and go back to the United States,” Lake said. The 17-year-old had actually supposedly been considering this for months and chose that he ‘d go back to the U.S after the ESL Pro League playoffs. OBo, nevertheless, made a last-minute choice earlier today and informed the group that he was at an airport to return house.

Without oBo, Complexity currently lost 20 percent of their DreamHack Open Fall Regional Major Ranking (RMR) points for using an alternative. Complexity lost to sAw 2-1 today and will have to make it through in the lower bracket to qualify for the primary occasion.

“We already started our look for a new fifth gamer, but we may be forced to utilize an emergency situation sub for the EPL playoffs,” Lake stated. The EPL playoffs begin on Tuesday, Sept. 29, which doesn’t leave Intricacy with much time to find an official fifth gamer.
