After a less than stellar year on the SC2 front, compLexity Gaming have released their Korean ace player TheStC, along with their academy project, citing a lack of NA LANs as the main cause for their decision to close the academy.

Lastly, we are announcing the closure of our StarCraft 2 Academy. Through its tenure the Academy has been a great success, discovering players like Michael 'Goswser' Dobler and Gage 'Sasquatch' Dubose. Numerous potential stars were able to attend and compete at MLG events. However, with the lack of American LAN events for SC2 the program became less viable for both the players and the organization. We'd like to thank all the past participants and wish them the best of luck in the future.

- Andrew 'aMies' Miesner, Staff & Website manager at coL.

Amidst the dissolution of the academy and the subsequent release of Sik, the organisation announced that qxc would remain on the team's main roster. This leaves coL's SC2 roster at six players in total.
