Why it is marked as "Complex" ?
We aren't necessarily complex, we have just been sorted into a backlog, which they seemingly reach into to process at their leisure. Their focus is on processing and approving applications made this year, within their service standard time of 6 months, so as to improve their overall average for their year end report. See example below:

Processing Times for Express Entry applications finalized by year and immigration category, in months

I'm using your status as a barometer for mine, seeing as they are so similar, and this doesn't bode well at all.
I keep asking myself what IRCC could possibly be doing and well...am drawing a big fat blank.
That's because they aren't doing anything.
I'm really frustrated at this point. I've thought about requesting GCMS notes again but honestly if I request it and wait 30 days to get it with 0 helpful information and no approval within that time again it's gonna push me over the edge.

So for now I've put them at the back of my mind and will be applying for a VV and renewing my bowp. I wish I had applied earlier in the year but I thought I would've had everything by now so I didn't smh

I hear you. I gave in and requested yet another set of GCMS notes. At the very least, I have my renewed BOWP to tide me over, but also no idea when they will process my VV application, if at all, and if they make a decision on my PR prior to that one. I have work travel coming up so I need the visa to re-enter regardless.

The whole thing is a shambles.

That's what I think too. They are focusing on all the new applicants to lower the average processing time. When they have some spare time, they might process few in the backlog. That's why we can see some people from AOR to COPR within a month

I See many ppr for pnp/fsw & cec inland(primary applicant) with Outland dependent, coming this week. I don't see CEC Outland 2020 primary applicants getting ppr, even if few outland cec received ppr, number is still low. It seems like ircc forgot cec outland 2020 primary applicants.

I quit my job. Now i`ve lost 50 points and my CRS score dropped below cutoff.... (july 2020 cutoff was really high compare to 2021)

but still higher than July and August 2021 cutoff.

Anyone knows if i need to call them and inform about it? Maybe they will finally make a decision.

did you have the extra 50pts for having a quilifying job offer after pr? if you did and lost those 50 pts and those 50pts brought under the crs cut-off for your draw then yes, it will cause your app to be refused.

it doesnt matter that your points is higher than current draws, it depends on your draw. yes you have to inform them you quit, not doing so is misrepresentation. If you did quit, seems like you'll have to apply again.

I would say consult an immigration lawyer just to be absolutely sure.
