The team was first formed under the LeveraGe name at the start of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. ACHES came together with who would become his best friend, TeePee, and joined forces with Fatalize and Carnage going into their first event. The team was expecting to do well and finished a solid 3rd place at the MLG Online National Championship. However, this wasn't good enough for the captain ACHES and the roster looked for improvement with the pick up of JuHGee and Miles to replace Fatalize and Carnage. With this new roster, the team was expecting to improve on the 3rd place finish online. At the MLG National Championship 2010 in Dallas, TX that year, the team got a very respectable 2nd place finish. However, the roster changes continued leading into the final tournament of the game in the Old Spice 10k. The team unfortunately did not perform well, ending Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on a very sour note.
New Game, New Sponsor
With the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops, the team got a new look both in their brand and roster. Quantic Gaming decided to become the official sponsor of the team. The team started competing under the name Quantic Leverage with the additions of FEARS and Bobby along with what was already forming into a legendary duo of ACHES and TeePee. The changes proved to be more than effective as the team came out strong and won the first major tournament during the MLG $25K online event. Even with the win, the team felt there was room for improvement and decided to part ways with FEARS and pick up Scumpi who at the time was quickly making waves for his talent level. This helped their team's communication and overall play style.
The team quickly proved it made the right decision when they took the first LAN event of the season at MLG Dallas 2011. With the immediate success the team was only expecting to improve even more from there. Unfortunately, that didn't happen and the team got a disappointing 4th place at MLG Columbus. Following their previous formula of dealing with losses, another roster change happened with ProoFy taking over for Bobby. Comprised of a team with many big names, the expectations were back for the squad to deliver and that is exactly what they did. They took the title at MLG Anaheim and finally managed to keep their roster intact moving on. Unfortunately for the team those results would not be matched again for the rest of the game. After a disappointing 6th place finish, FEARS was brought back for ProoFy however the team couldn't get anything going to close at the year placing 5th and 6th at the last two events.
Quantic out, compLexity In
With the lack of competitive support with thew new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Quantic gave up it's sponsorship of Leverage. Their only major event was EGL 8 with the roster of ACHES, TeePee, NaDeSHoT, and John. After that the team decided to simply wait it out for the next game to be released which happened to be Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. With the release of a new game, ACHES and TeePee were in need of two new teammates as well as new major team sponsor. That came with compLexity deciding to pick up the team for the upcoming season. CompLexity was involved in games such as Starcraft 2, Counter Strike, and League of Legends however this was their first real attempt Call of Duty. The two empty rosters were filled by Crimsix who was coming over from Halo and FEARS who was making another appearance on the team. Their first big tournament together was the online Frag Cup IV. With over 1,800 teams entered in the tournament, compLexity outlasted them all taking out JuKeD in the finals to take the win in their first tournament together. The team was looking to keep the momentum going at UMG Chicago. Unfortunately the team came up short losing to OpTic Gaming in the finals. To make matters worse, the finals were plagued by controversy when NaDeSHoT and ACHES got into an altercation during the handshakes after the games.
Despite the sportsmanship issues at UMG Chicago, ACHES stayed at the helm of compLexity as team captain. Unfortunately for FEARS another run with the team had ended being replaced by TuQuick. Hoping to get back to winning ways, the team was confident moving forward but the results never came. They placed 4th at both MLG Dallas and the Call of Duty Championship. After back to back finishes not up to standards, the team knew they had to make a change and that's what happened. TuQuick was dropped and replaced by Clayster who was coming from an even more disappointing finish with UNiTE at COD Champs.
This roster change proved to be one of the best decisions in recent history because what followed was simply unthinkable in Call of Duty. The team took their first event together at the MLG Spring Championship defeating Impact in the finals. This victory put an end to Impact's win streak of 4 events in a row and kick started compLexity's. The team was able to pick up 2 more victories at Gfinity 1 and UMG Atlanta. The team was finally came back to reality finishing 2nd at MLG PAX Prime Invitational when UNiTE took them down. Fortunately for them, they quickly got back to their winning ways on their return trip to London for Gfinity 2. The dominance continued in the final two events of the game and both resulted in a victory. One came at the MLG Fall Invitational which consisted of the 4 best teams based on pro points at the time and the final came in Paris, France at the eSports World Cup.
compLexity Seeing Ghosts
The release of Call of Duty: Ghosts brought new challenges for the teams as any new release does. Fortunately, the challenges were no match for the team. Going into the first event of the new season at the MLG Fall Championship, they continued to showcase their dominance. While Team Kaliber took them to the last map of the finals but weren't able to do the impossible and take the win. This put compLexity's win streak at 4 and counting with them showing no signs of slowing down. After the event, however, they decided to throw the community into a craze by dropping Clayster. Many credited as him being vital as to why the team was able to get over the hump from the beginning of and start winning. Aches claimed it had nothing to do with skill and simply came down to Clayster not getting along with the rest of the team anymore. Despite all of the criticism, the team moved forward with little doubt about the move especially when they picked up Karma who had just left EnVyUs.
With the acquisition of Karma, the team had lots of pressure on them to continue their success and prove all of the doubters wrong going into UMG Philadelphia. After handling aDversity in the first round, the squad had to come back from 0-2 down to FaZe in the next round. It came down to a round 11 in Search and Destroy on map 5, but they were able to prevail making an epic comeback. After that, the team never faced elimination again taking the championship for a 5th straight win and the first with Karma. This put an end to the doubt regarding the team change and left all the other teams changing. Following the event, team continued to showcase their dominance in the weekly MLG 2K series. At the same time, they withdrew from the Call of Duty Winter Invitational after only 2 games played. The team cited poor organization and not being allowed to stream on Twitch.TV among the reasons they decided to drop out of it.
Road to Call of Duty Championships
Following their departure from the Winter Invitational the team turned their focus to Call of Duty Championship 2014 where the prize pool of $1,000,000 was much more appealing. They were able to qualify for the Call of Duty Championship US Regional Final without much trouble winning every match in the Online Qualifiers without much trouble. They also became the first team to commit to switching over to the Xbox One given that that is the console of choice for the championship event.
Evil Geniuses buys the World Champions
On Tuesday the 6th of May, compLexity sold their roster ACHES, TeePee, Crimsix and Karma to Evil Geniuses. After finished Top 2 in the past 12 events, when it came up to the MLG X Games Invitational, Evil Geniuses was caught off-guard by the amazing plays that both OpTic Gaming and Team Kaliber made, leaving Evil Geniuses finishing their 14th event in 3rd.
On 14th November 2014, Evil Geniuses released their entire Call of Duty roster.
