Free Agent
Released from Evil Geniuses
November 16, 2018
Lacefield has been released from Evil Geniuses, the organization confirmed Thursday.
ANALYSIS
It's a bit surprising to see Evil Geniuses make a roster move so soon into the new competitive season, but it speaks to the concern the championship-winning organization had in its current roster. Two less-than-subpar finishes in the most recent 2Ks will do that, and the move to acquire Xotic also means Evil Geniuses will have the final pool play spot at CWL Las Vegas. Lacefield is expected to join Xotic's previous roster, but the lineup will more than likely have to battle out of the open bracket in order to make a substantial run at CWL Las Vegas.

November 16, 2018
Xotic will leave Lightning Pandaz and join Evil Geniuses just a day before roster locks for the CWL Vegas Open.
ANALYSIS
It doesn't take long for drama to creep up in the Call of Duty scene, as Xotic's decision to leave what figures to be the new iteration of Lightning Pandaz for Evil Geniuses just hours before roster locks for the CWL Las Vegas Open creates a cascade of future ramifications. First and foremost, Xotic's Pro Points narrowly put Evil Geniuses over his former roster for the final spot guaranteed for CWL Las Vegas Pool Play - a massive ramification given the December tournament will play a critical role in qualifying for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League. Second, the decision to leave his former teammates behind once again signals a disappointing start to the new CoD season for Parasite, who was the leader of Xotic's now previous team. At the very least, storylines have already surfaced throughout the first months of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and shouldn't die down with the first tournament taking place in just over three weeks time.
Teams with G2
October 25, 2018
Decemate will join G2 as the team begins the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 competitive season.
ANALYSIS
Arguably one of the most high-profile young players that was available in free agency, Decemate will join a handful of his former eRa teammates, Ricky and Blazt, on G2's latest foray into the competitive Call of Duty scene. Where he fits into the competitive hierarchy remains to be seen, as G2 is loaded with promise but likely faces an uphill battle in terms of high placings. Blazt, for his part, will likely provide a number of intricate Search and Destroy strats, and act as the second sub in what figures to be an aggressive meta thanks to the new 5-vs-5 rosters.
Aligns with G2
October 25, 2018
Ricky will join G2, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Ricky will join one of his compLexity teammates, Blazt, while two players from Team EnVyUs - Chino and Decemate - will compromise two other spots on the roster. The inclusion of Faccento, formerly of Echo Fox, will round out G2's latest foray into the competitive Call of Duty scene, and the team appears poised to contend for a CWL Pro League spot when the season opens in December.
Starting new season on G2
October 25, 2018
Faccento will team with G2 to start the 2018 competitive Call of Duty season.
ANALYSIS
It wasn't a surprise to see Echo Fox let go of Faccento, particularly after the organization opted to leave the Call of Duty space entirely following a disappointing World War II season. It's perhaps a greater shock to see Faccento arguably fall forward in terms of roster potential, as the likes of Ricky, Blazt and Decemate have proven to be a successful trio in the past. While Faccento struggled throughout most of WWII, the potential is clearly there for him to rebound, particularly since he won't be asked to do "too" much on this new roster.
Joining G2
October 25, 2018
Blazt will join G2 ahead of the start of the competitive CoD season.
ANALYSIS
G2 will make its way back into Call of Duty after leaving the space during the Infinite Warfare season. Blazt will be teaming with a plethora of his former eRa/Reckless teammates, as both Ricky and Decemate will join him on G2, alongside veterans Chino and Faccento. It's a unique combination, but oddly one that could wind up fitting together better than most people predict, as the S&D presence will surely be one of the strong suits of this roster.
Joins G2
October 25, 2018
Chino will join G2 ahead of the organization's foray back into competitive Call of Duty.
ANALYSIS
G2 will join EnVyUs teammate, Decemate, on the new G2 lineup, recreating essentially the Reckless/eRa roster as Ricky and Blazt will also team with the new club. Chino actually played under the G2 banner once prior, flaming out under the organization after a successful Black Ops III competitive season.
Joining LG
October 25, 2018
Classic will join Luminosity Gaming, the organization confirmed earlier last week.
ANALYSIS
Classic completes the final roster for Luminosity Gaming ahead of the start of the competitive season. It's a drastic turnover from last season, as Gunless and Classic will replace JKap and Octane, essentially yielding the team to the prowess of John and FormaL. Classic will likely reprise his objective role from Team EnVyUs alongside a wide plethora of aggressive slayers, but he could very well help contribute to the callouts, as both John and Gunless tend to shy away from the communication aspect.
Signs on with Enigma6
October 25, 2018
KiSMET will join Enigma6 Group ahead of the Black Ops 4 competitive season.
ANALYSIS
KiSMET failed to qualify for the 2018 World Championships as GAS Gaming didn't make it out of the Last Chance Qualifier, but he did post a 21-24th place finish at the CWL Anaheim Open under Conquest. Given last year essentially was KiSMET's first competitive season, it remains to be seen how well the player will adapt to what figures to be his most high-profile organization, but KiSMET arguably has the most promise of anyone on the current roster.
Joining Enigma6 Group
October 25, 2018
Kade will join Enigma6 Group ahead of the upcoming competitive season.
ANALYSIS
Kade will return to Enigma6 after a successful competitive season with the organization during Infinite Warfare in which the slayer helped them finish 9th-12th place at the 2017 World Championships. While Kade failed to qualify for this past year's World Championships, he did post multiple top-24 finishes with Morituri eSports and EZG eSports at open events during World War II.
Returns to Enigma6
October 25, 2018
Diabolic will return to Enigma6 Group, the slayer confirmed in a tweet earlier in October.
ANALYSIS
It appears as if Diabolic will not be teaming again with Sender, his former Enigma6 teammate, as the organization has decided to go in another direction in terms of players. Diabolic will join Kade and General as the veterans on the team, with Kismet and Frosty acting as the unproven talent in what figures to be a fairly competitive roster.
Signs on with Evil Geniuses
October 12, 2018
Goonjar will join Evil Geniuses for the start of Black Ops 4, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Goonjar thrived under Lightning Pandaz throughout World War II, dominating the CWL National Circuit and narrowly qualifying for the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships thanks to the Last Chance Qualifer. From there, Pandaz would register a 9th-12th place finish, becoming one of two teams to finish first in their respective pool after making it to the aforementioned tournament by way of the LCQ. Evil Geniuses organizationally is a step up for Goonjar from Lightning Pandaz, and other than Team Kaliber, who he had four separate stints with, represents one of the prestigious organizations in his entire career. However it remains to be seen if the team will perform better than last season, with a cobbled together group of explosive players giving the phrase "sink or swim" a whole new meaning.
Aligns with Evil Geniuses
October 12, 2018
Royalty will join Evil Geniuses, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
After selling their championship-winning organization in late September, Evil Geniuses made the move to acquire a jumble of available players, uniting two members of Lightning Pandaz, one player from eUnited, one from Echo Fox and the other from compLexity Gaming. Royalty figures to be one of the main slayers on this roster, and also presents the player with arguably the most career upside with the likes of Saints and Goonjar nearing the end of their respective runs. This roster should challenge for a Pro League spot, but its difficult to determine how high Royalty and company could reach in Black Ops 4.

October 12, 2018
Lacefield will play under the Evil Geniuses banner to begin Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
ANALYSIS
Lacefield appears to be moving up in the world, shedding compLexity Gaming for Evil Geniuses, an organization that can lay claim to the 2018 World Championship, albeit with an entirely different roster than currently constructed. An aggressive slayer through and through, Lacefield figures to reprise the role he played under compLexity with his new team, as the likes of Saints, Felony and Goonjar are not known for their slaying tendencies. The unorthodox lineup should still compete for a Pro League spot in 2019, but it remains to be seen how high the ceiling may be.
Joining Evil Geniuses
October 12, 2018
Saints will join Evil Geniuses, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Echo Fox's decision to close operations on their Call of Duty team likely advanced the inevitable for Saints, as the veteran slayer didn't have the best season under the organization. He'll look to turn it around under Evil Geniuses, alongside a hodgepodge of cast-off players including Felo, Lacefield, Goonjar and Royalty. The in-game leader might have his work cut out for him, but after winning the 2018 World Championships, its clear that Evil Geniuses is not willing to go away quietly, acquiring a five-man lineup that should be in contention for a Pro League spot in 2019.
