Remains on Rogue
November 20, 2017
Johnny and the rest of the Rogue roster will be returning to the organization to begin the Call of Duty: World War II season.
ANALYSIS
This felt like a formality, given Johnny and GodRx had remained tight-lipped about their roster/organization prior to the start of Call of Duty: World War II. As a result, Rogue will be one of only a handful of rosters who qualified for the 2017 World Championships to stay the same.
Spotted on exceL Esports
November 20, 2017
Weeman was spotted playing with exceL Esports in the most recent European 2K, Mike Kent of Dexerto reports.
ANALYSIS
While the organization has yet to make an official announcement, Weeman was spotted on the exceL roster that placed 9th-16th in the most recent European 2K. The former Vitality slayer appears to be an upgrade over Jake, who was seemingly released and has found a spot on Renegades, at least for the moment.
Listed on Renegades roster
November 20, 2017
ShAnE was listed on the Renegades roster during the most recent European 2K, Mike Kent of Dexerto reports.
ANALYSIS
Perhaps one of the more well known players in all of Europe given he's played in every Call of Duty World Championship since its inception, Renegades appears to have discarded one former professional, Jake, for another, bringing on ShAnE for the most recent European 2K. While the organization has yet to make an official announcement, more information regarding the move should arrive prior to CWL Dallas in December.
Did not play for Renegades in most recent 2K
November 20, 2017
Jake was not listed on the Renegades roster during the the second European 2K of the season, Mike Kent of Dexerto reports.
ANALYSIS
After a disappointing finish in the first EU 2K of the Call of Duty: World War II season, it looks as if Renegades have opted to make a roster change, releasing Jake in favor of the former exceL member, Shane. The move appeared to be a stroke of genius given Renegades finished in 9th-16th place, a major improvement upon their position last week. No official announcement has been made by Renegades at this time.
Joins Next Threat
November 17, 2017
Mochila will join Censor on Next Threat, the veteran slayer announced on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Mochila was recently linked to Killa's team, but the group let go of Mochila following a poor finish in the first CWL North American 2K. Given Next Threat also struggled to make much of a difference at the aforementioned 2K, it will be interesting to see whether he can provide a new element to the team.
Officially announced on Epsilon roster
November 15, 2017
Insanatised was officially announced on the Epsilon eSports roster earlier this week.
ANALYSIS
A former member of Orbit and Exertus before joining Epsilon, Insanatised has certainly never teamed with a roster of this caliber, given Dqvee, Vortex and Hawqeh each have made names for themselves in the European region. While the official announcement sites Insanatised's aggressive slaying as an intriguing asset for Epsilon, how he gels together with his three teammates will be the biggest determining factor in whether the premier organization will jump ahead of regional rivals Red Reserve and Splyce.
Free Agent
Aligns with Havok Esports
November 15, 2017
MRuiz will be a part of the Havok Esports banner, Preston Byers of Dot Esports reports.
ANALYSIS
While we've known about the roster for some time, the former Engima6 slayer and company have finally been linked to a roster, with Havok Esports locking in the intriguing lineup to a reported four-month contract. Should the roster stick together, the timeline would see this iteration of the Havok Esports roster play in multiple major open events in the season.
Joining eRa
November 15, 2017
ProoFy will join eRa after he was released from Next Threat over the weekend.
ANALYSIS
Given the Next Threat roster did not crack the top 32 in the first North American 2K of the new season, it wasn't exactly surprising to see some sort of change happen. Whether the move was made by ProoFy or Next Threat remains unclear, but what is certain is the former X-Game gold medalist will be joining a much younger roster, headlined by former Cloud9 slayer Havok. Given eRa also struggled to place highly in the aforementioned 2K, it shouldn't be too hard for the new roster to improve.
Free Agent
Rejoining Parasite's team
November 15, 2017
StuDy will join Parasite's team after the group released Mboze, the former world champion announced Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
It's a curious move given Parasite's team finished in the top 10 in the most recent North American 2K, but evidently a change was still in order. Given Parasite himself tweeted that he was prepared to leave the team during the weekend, there was clearly some dissatisfaction that hopefully the addition with StuDy will be able to solve. For what it's worth, StuDy's former teammate, Methodz, seemed to suggest the sudden change was financially motivated, with a since-deleted tweet alluding to the fact StuDy may have been bought off.
Free Agent
Let go from Killa's team
November 15, 2017
Mochila is once again a free agent after Killa's new organization, Underworld Esports, did not include him as part of their roster announcement.
ANALYSIS
Mochila had joined Killa's roster early in November after Blfire left to join Nagafen's new team. However that move apparently wasn't the answer, as Mochila will hit free agency once more after what essentially amounted to a two-week trial period. Given most teams will still try and tinker with their rosters prior to CWL Dallas, which takes place in December, there's a possibility that Mochila finds a home before the first major event of the new year.
Free Agent
Finds new organization
November 15, 2017
Killa has signed on with a new organization, Underworld Esports, complete with a new roster.
ANALYSIS
Killa's new team, which was slated to be Sender, Blfire and Swarley as early as a month ago, recently underwent a roster move, bringing in Mochila after Blfire opted to join Nagafen's new roster. That move apparently wasn't the answer, as the roster then opted to switch out Mochila for Fears, who himself had just hit free agency after a short stint with eRa. While the whirlwind roster changes don't inspire much confidence when it comes to the strength of the roster, Killa and company will have plenty of time to gel prior to CWL Dallas in December.
Free Agent
No longer playing for eRa
November 15, 2017
Fears will no longer play for eRa, and instead will be joining Killa on his new organization, Underworld Esports.
ANALYSIS
It didn't take long for eRa to make a move to their competitive roster, releasing Fears following a disappointing top-32 finish in the first North American 2K of the new season. The move to acquire Fears means that Mochila will become a free agent, with eRa also looking for an additional player to fill out their roster.
Signing on with Tainted Minds
November 8, 2017
Swiftazor will be joining Tainted Minds, the organization announced on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The former Mindfreak Black slayer will be returning to Tainted Minds in a not-so-shocking announcement given Tainted Minds just recently let go of Excite. Swiftazor made waves during Mindfreak Black's surprising top-16 run at 2017 Call of Duty World Championships, and should find himself in a cushy situation on one of the premier organizations in the ANZ region.
Leaving Tainted Minds
November 6, 2017
Excite will opt to leave Tainted Minds, the player announced on Twitlonger.
ANALYSIS
It doesn't come as much of a surprise to see Excite leave town, given he's already set up a new roster with Setzyy, Dean, and Lakie for the new competitive season. Given Excite has been a World Championships mainstay in recent years, it seems likely he'll be able to find an organization prior to any major tournaments.
Signs on with Amity Esports
November 5, 2017
Diabolic and company will be joining Amity Esports, the organization announced over the weekend.
ANALYSIS
Only a few days after leaving Draco Esports, Diabolic and the rest of his roster consisting of Happy, Remy, and Mosh will join Amity Esports. Given Amity isn't necessarily a household name in Call of Duty, it's not a guarantee this roster will stick with the org should they put together a massive run early in the year. But for now, it's a perfect home for a team that has yet to string together much success.
