Alexander Garfield, EG's CEO, incidentally mentioned within compLexity's announcement, that this is "[...]definitely the largest eSports contract buyout I've heard of[...]". Through the acquisition of the current Call of Duty World Champion, EG seems to have made a good investment as the former compLexity Line-Up just managed to win UGC Niagara with a 6-0 sweep in the finals.
At the same time the team's new and old captain Patrick 'ACHES' Price reveals through a statement on the EG homepage that they will "[...]showcase the EG brand at the X Games, MLG Anaheim, and other events[...]". In the end, it remains to be seen whether the new jersey will affect the performance of the team.
