- Recently, Jason Lake spoke about Valentin “Poizon” Vasilev’s car crash during the ESL Pro League Season 11, Day 6 Pre-show. Here is what Jason said to the viewers.
Who is Jason Lake?
Complexity Gaming is one of the oldest esports organizations in the world. They were formed back in 2003, before anyone really thought organized gaming was a thing. Sure there were clans that were formed beforehand, but none really stuck on the wall like C.G. Complexity Gaming was first formed in 2003 by Jason “1” Lake, Paolo Bergantino, and Ariel Perez from Team FBI (source), and in 2017, Jerry Jones and CEO of Crescent Real Estate Holdings John Goff acquired a majority stake in the organization.
Currently, Jason Lake is the CEO of Complexity.
We just missed the cut in a tough group, but given the circumstances I’m proud of the team. #COLCS is continuing to improve and we’ll do our best to take advantage of this time in Europe and get to the next level.#WeAreCOL#ESLProLeague https://t.co/0WE4w9cJPg

Trouble in the CS:GO Division
Recently during the ESL One Pro League event, the CS:GO panel went into the pre-game show after the first map match between BIG and Complexity Gaming. Before discussing the match in more detail, they brought out a special guest that we don’t see too often and that was Jason Lake, Founder and CEO of Complexity Gaming. He was asked about some of the learning experiences he has these days since esports has changed since 2003 when Jason formed Complexity with Paolo and Ariel.
“Well I’m quickly learning; we don’t play our best online. You want a team that can play well online and on LAN.” – Jason
“But you know me. Nobody wants to win in Counter-Strike more than me, but at the end of the day, health and safety of the guys and our staff is what’s really important.” – Jason
We don’t know much more about Poizon’s accident, however, it’s great to hear that he’s doing better now.
