CoD: Roster Changes for Black Ops 3
28th October 2015
After a superb showing at EGL, where we just fell short of our goal of winning the Event, earlier this week we had to take the decision as exceL eSports to say goodbye to Jamie 'Insight' Craven and Sean 'Seany' O'Connor. Our reasoning for the decision is not likely to be a shock. With both players not able to compete in 18+ events next year on Black Ops 3, and with our goal to become established as the top UK Call of Duty organisation, we were left with no choice but to make this decision.
I would like to personally and wholeheartedly thank Jamie and Seany for their commitment, hard work and professionalism whilst representing exceL and we will do what we can to ensure they land somewhere safely. Seany especially should be commended for his loyalty as he has been with exceL eSports Ltd since its inception.
After holding discussions with our two remaining players, Zach 'Zed' Denyer and Liam 'Carbines' Ryan, the players were determined to continue competing and both expressed a desire to stay under exceL but understood it may not be possible depending on team changes.
With that in mind, I am delighted to announce our Call of Duty Roster going in to Black Ops 3 and will be attending AM2Pro3. Zach 'Zed' Denyer will be staying with us and will be joined by the former Exertus line-up, Benjamin 'Bance' Bance, Stephen 'Vortex' Allan and Ben 'Desire' Wright. This team has been formed with the sole intention of competing in the upcoming World League and with every ambition to be challenging for Event titles on Black Ops 3.
This unfortunately means Liam will also be leaving us. We would like to say that Liam leaves us on the best of terms and we are truly thankful for his service with us and will be continuing to support him in his Call of Duty career as best we can. Bance, Vortex & Desire understandably wanted to stay together and after all parties were consulted, this was decided to be the best course of action.
Thank you for your continued support and we hope you can join us in wishing these guys the best of luck going in to the next game. Follow their Twitters - @xL_Zed, @xL_Bance, @xL_Vortex & @xL_Desire.
