The chapter presents the problem of the complexity of plastic flow in alloys, which is manifested by serrated deformation curves and transient plastic strain localizations. This phenomenon uncovers an inherently collective nature of the dynamics of crystal defects. The chapter discusses the state-of-the art of this research under the angle of distinct regimes of collective dislocation dynamics found in conventional, basically binary alloys, e.g., self-organized criticality, deterministic chaos,
