Complexity Gaming (abbreviated as COL and formerly stylized as compLexity Gaming) is an American esports organization founded in 2003. It was briefly known as Los Angeles Complexity in Counter-Strike: Source during the Championship Gaming Series. Complexity Gaming is one of the oldest esports organizations still active in the Counter-Strike scene, first fielding a Counter-Strike team as early as 2004.

In 2017, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and real estate investor John Goff acquired a majority stake in the organization. [1] Two years later, Complexity Gaming opened its new headquarters, the GameStop Performance Center, located within The Star, the Dallas Cowboys' World Headquarters, in Frisco, Texas. [2] In 2021, Canadian digital-media agency GameSquare Esports acquired the organization, simultaneously announcing expanded collaboration with the Dallas Cowboys, as well as the Jones and Goff families.
