CoD: Deadline Day RosterMania

16th November 2015

Recently, we announced our Call of Duty roster for the Black Ops 3 season start. However, with Ben (Bance) electing to leave the team very soon after its formation, the atmosphere became unsettled and internal issues led to difficulties in finding a suitable solution to our missing player problem. With the transfer of Stevo (Vortex) and Ben W. (Desire) to Team Orbit, this left us with only Zach (Zed) remaining and the need to bring in three players before last night's Call of Duty World League deadline.

With that being said, we are delighted to announce that Shea 'QwiKeR' Sweeney (@xL_QwiKeR), Brian 'Braaain' Fairlamb (@xL_Braaain) and Nick 'Nolson' Nolson (@xL_Nolson) will be joining Zach 'Zed' Denyer (@xL_Zed) to complete our Call of Duty Roster for the forseeable future. The team are also pleased to confirm that they will be attending AM2Pro3's (@AM_2_Pro) upcoming Black Ops 3 PS4 tournament, in Peterborough at the end of this month. 

Picture taken at AM2Pro's previous event, hosted in Blackpool in Summer 2015. exceL took home a respectable 5/6th finish at that event.

Managing Director Joel Holmes-Darby had this to say about the recent roster change:

"I have been quite vocal on Social Media about how stressful the past week has been not only for me, but for everyone involved in this latest edition of RosterMania. It was a real shame the roster we had brought on just a couple of weeks ago wasn't able to stick together as much as we wanted them to. Good luck to them with their new teams.

With that being said, I am delighted we have been able to bring on such a talented group of players at such short notice and we are really confident that this team will help us achieve what we are setting out to do in the Black Ops 3 season. This starts at AM2Pro in just under two weeks and will hopefully culminate in qualification, and subsequent strong performances, in the Call of Duty World League.
