Free Agent
Let go from Team EnVyUs
September 23, 2018
Classic has been released from Team EnVyUs, the organization confirmed on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Classic finished with a 0.96 KD at the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships as EnVyUs finished in 5th-6th place. Despite the solid finish at the pivotal tournament, Classic struggled to find any sort of consistency at throughout the World War II season, and as a result the organisation opted to make significant changes by acquiring Evil Geniuses' championship-winning roster. The structure of the Black Ops 4 season suggests Classic, Chino and Decemate would be best served teaming together in order to get a solid standing for the opening tournament of the new season, but it remains to be seen if that will take place.
Free Agent
Released from EnVyUs
September 23, 2018
Decemate is a free agent heading into the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 competitive season.
ANALYSIS
Decemate will join Chino and Classic in the free agency pool after EnVyUs made the move to acquire Evil Geniuses championship-winning roster. The structure of the 2019 competitive season suggests Decemate, Chino and Classic might team together once more if only to earn a spot in CWL Las Vegas, but it remains to be seen which organization will acquire the trio.
Free Agent
Released from Team EnVyUs
September 23, 2018
Chino is a free agent after Team EnVyUs acquired Evil Geniuses' championship-winning roster on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Chino, Decemate and Classic will hit free agency as the organization has opted to keep Huke to build around its Evil Geniuses additions. Chino finished the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships with the highest KD on the team, finishing with a 1.17 figure after a 5th-6th place finish. The solid end to the season was the cherry on top of what had been a breakout campaign for Chino, as he previously succeeded under Team Kaliber before the organization opted to make a handful of mid-season changes. It'll be interesting to see whether Chino elicits a lot of organizational interest, particularly since he will have plenty of Pro Points to work with. Given the structure of the 2019 season, it wouldn't be a surprise to see all three released players sign on with another duo in order to better position themselves for CWL Las Vegas.
Remaining on Team EnVyUs
September 23, 2018
Huke will remain with Team EnVyUs and become the fifth member of the roster after the organization acquired Evil Geniuses' former roster on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Huke is the only member of Team EnVyUs to come back to start the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season, which makes sense given how much control the organization gifted him upon coming back to the CoD scene last year. Huke is still one of the better young players in the game, but after seeing similarly-aged players such as TJHaLy and Kenny perform so well in Call of Duty: World War II, the pressure is on for Huke to live up to his immense capabilities.
Teaming with EnVyUs
September 23, 2018
Silly will join the rest of his Evil Geniuses teammates on Team EnVyUs, the organization confirmed on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Silly will move over to Team EnVyUs after the organization acquired the current World Champions following their inspired run to conclude the Call of Duty: World War II season. Silly joined Evil Geniuses towards the start of Stage 2 and promptly helped push the organization over the top. Alongside the only remaining EnVyUs member, Huke, Silly will likely reprise his role as an aggressive slayer, providing Aches and Apathy a chance to navigate the rest of the field.
Joins Team EnVyUs in unprecedented deal
September 23, 2018
Assault will join Team EnVyUs, the organization confirmed on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Assault will join the rest of his 2018 World Championships teammates as Team EnVyUs acquired the lineup from Evil Geniuses to partner along EnVy fixture, Huke. While EnVyUs struggled throughout much of 2018, the same can't be said for Assault and company, as the young slayer thrived under the leadership of Aches. This new EnVyUs roster figures to be one of the better lineups to begin Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Rejoining Team EnVyUs
September 23, 2018
Apathy will rejoin Team EnVyUs after a year away from the organization as the 2018 World Championship roster from Evil Geniuses will move to EnVy.
ANALYSIS
2018 wasn't the only time Apathy won the aforementioned pivotal prize, as the veteran player famously also won the championship in 2016 with Team EnVyUs, and then nearly won it again in 2017 as the team fell just short with a second-place finish. Alongside Huke, the only member of EnVy to return for 2018, this figures to be an explosive and talented lineup that should compete for multiple championships in Black Ops 4.
Signs with Team EnVyUs
September 23, 2018
Aches and the majority of Evil Geniuses have been signed by Team EnVyUs, the organization confirmed on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
It's not very often that the current World Champions change organizations for the upcoming season, but that's exactly what will happen here as Aches, Apathy, Assault and Silly will join Huke on the very new-look Team EnVyUs roster. It remains to be seen how the lineup will perform in a pseudo-movement system of Black Ops 4, but it's hard to argue last season's results as Evil Geniuses survived a topsy-turvy 2018 World Championships to claim the ultimate prize.
Teaming with Nevo
September 20, 2018
Dylan will be teaming with Nevo on a new lineup ahead of the 2018 competitive season.
ANALYSIS
Dylan and the rest of Brash eSports were arguably some of the most consistent amateur lineups throughout the 2017-18 competitive season, as the team advanced through the open bracket at CWL Anaheim and CWL Seattle prior to their 17th-24th place finish at the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships. Dylan's 1.18 cumulative KD at the aforementioned tournament is certainly a positive mark on his CoD resume, but that was largely thanks to a fantastic series against Lethal Gaming, in which he finished with a total 100/73 KD.
Leaving Brash eSports to open new season
September 20, 2018
Nevo is a free agent for the start of the 2018 competitive season and will be teaming with his former Brash eSports teammate, Dylan, to begin the new campaign.
ANALYSIS
Brash eSports did take 17-24th at the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships, but it wasn't exactly a resounding tournament for Nevo, as the young slayer finished with a 0.82 cumulative KD. With Black Ops 4 transitioning to a 5-vs-5 competitive scene, it's almost a guarantee the duo will find a trio of teammates to compete with heading into CWL Las Vegas, as the roster will almost certainly be among the top-32 teams expected to compete for a CWL Pro League spot.
Free Agent
Leaving coaching job with Team Prismatic
September 20, 2018
Blfire is a free agent for the start of the 2018 competitive season
ANALYSIS
Blfire was coaching for Team Prismatic previously, but it appears as if the player is prepared to enter the competitive scene once more. Blfire previously teamed with GAS Gaming, Gone Gaming, InControl Gaming and SoaR Gaming throughout the Call of Duty: World War II season.
Retiring from competitive scene
September 20, 2018
Verdict has announced he will be retiring from competitive Call of Duty.
ANALYSIS
Lost in the shuffle of major CoD esports news and the early makings of an interesting Rostermania was Verdict's retirement announcement, which he emphasized was made in large part to focus on his education. Verdict had been a part of some relatively major organizations recently, including Most Wanted and Brash eSports. However his teams never made it out of the open bracket in a handful of 2017-18 Open events, eventually ending Verdict's career on a low note.
Teaming with Red Reserve
September 20, 2018
Bance has joined Red Reserve, the organization confirmed on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Mere minutes after the announcement that Call of Duty would officially transfer to 5-vs-5 competitive action, Red Reserve had already laid claim to arguably "the" premiere free agent from the European region. While Splyce didn't do well throughout the later stages of the Call of Duty: World War II season, including a failed attempt to advance out of pool play at the 2018 World Championships, it's not entirely Bance's fault as the slayer did finish with a 1.03 cumulative KD at the pivotal tournament. Chemistry concerns appeared to be an issue for Splyce throughout the season leading to Bance's eventual release from the team, but that shouldn't be a concern with Red Reserve poised for a championship run in 2019. So long as the team can mesh together ahead of the start of the new campaign, there's a realistic possibility Bance could be a part of one of the greatest European teams of all time in the near future.
Newest acquisition for Mindfreak
September 18, 2018
Louqa has signed with Mindfreak, the organization confirmed on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
This easily represents the highest competitive point for the 18-year-old slayer, as Louqa had previously played for a number of amateur organizations in the ANZ region. It remains to be seen if the newest member of Mindfreak is a replacement for one of their previous players, or an addition to the roster as professional Call of Duty is all but guaranteed to have a five-man rosters to open the year. Shockz and Fighta have already re-signed with the organization, meaning there could potentially be two spots available on Mindfreak's roster to begin the new competitive season.
Coming back to Mindfreak
September 18, 2018
Fighta has re-signed with Mindfreak to start the Black Ops 4 competitive season.
ANALYSIS
Mindfreak failed to make it out of pool play at the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships and Fighta's play likely played a part in their disappointing results, as the slayer finished with a team-low cumulative KD of 0.89. Essentially the main objective player for the team, Fighta's role can't strictly be highlighted by his KD however, which is why Mindfreak chose to bring him back for another season. With rumors that regional roster locks may be a thing of the past, there's an opportunity for the organization to acquire an up-and-coming player from North America to round out their roster if they're willing to pony up the price.
