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.
Falls flat in fast series
August 18, 2018
Zer0 tried, and failed, to take back control in a 3-0 loss to eUnited, which drops Red Reserve to the Loser's Bracket, on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 rarely found the time stabilize in what eUnited turned into a hectic series. Not only were eUnited able to keep the fights close range, forcing Zer0 off of his preferred AR role. The only time Zer0 was able to find firm footing was in slower rounds like Round 2 Search & Destroy and a slow Round 3 Capture the Flag. In Round 2 Search & Destroy on Saint Marie Du Mont, Zer0 slowed eUnited's map movement thanks to his strong presence in high-ground positions that looked over mid-lane.
Fails to avoid Loser's Bracket again
August 18, 2018
Rated couldn't overcome a slow start in a 3-0 loss to eUnited on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships, dropping to the Loser's Bracket in the process.
ANALYSIS
Rated once again failed to avoid dropping into the Losers Bracket despite his best efforts. The loss was largely thanks to eUnited forcing a more hectic game than a slow Red Reserve could control. Rated, in particular, struggled to guide a flailing Joee this series, resulting in Rated being unable to find any kind of opening in most maps. Even in favorable game modes and rounds, like Round 2 Search & Destroy on Saint Marie Du Mont, a Red Reserve favorite, Rated's slow shots couldn't dent eUnited.
Hinders his team
August 18, 2018
Joee fell flat in a 3-0 loss to eUnited on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships, dropping into the Loser's Bracket in the process.
ANALYSIS
Joee just couldn't make anything work this series. His flanks flat, shots and map control all fell flat, resulting in a grueling match for not only Joee, but also for Red Reserve. In every map, Joee dropped double negative numbers. While Red Reserve is known for winning maps despite negative KDs, Joee's double-digit negative KDs made the team dysfunctional. Joee, as Red Reserve's playmaker, simply can't play this slowly at this level.
Tries to pick up the slack
August 18, 2018
Skrapz attempted to pick up the pace in a 3-0 loss to eUnited on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships, dropping into the Loser's Bracket in the process.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz tried all he could to wake his team up, but the team's overall slow slaying made it impossible. This was best seen in Round 3 Capture the Flag on Flak Tower. In the first half, Skrapz was able to break into the eUnited base and found a clear shot at the flag. Skrapz's teammates, however, struggled to find any kills to open a lane up for him to make the flag capture. By the time Skrapz finally grabbed the flag, eUnited had already worked their way back into their base to easily snap on Skrapz.

Team News
Call of Duty
Announces new lineup
September 16, 2017
Red Reserve announced their new lineup of Joshh, Joee, Rated and Zer0 for the upcoming season of Call of Duty on Twitter.
ANALYSIS
After the all-star line-up formed under Rated's watch, Red Reserve went ahead and wisely snatched the roster. This is despite Rated having only left Red Reserve a month ago. The line-up is, on paper, the best team in Europe. However, question arise concerning both Rated's and Joshh's tumultuous relationships with teams and organizations. If the four can cooperate together, then this may well be one of the best teams in Europe.
Call of Duty
Merges with Orbit
February 17, 2017
Red Reserve will merge with Orbit for the 2017 competitive season, the team announced on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Red Reserve was previously home to Parasite's roster, but the embattled slayer announced his release from the organization earlier in the year prompting speculation that Red Reserve would be making another move. However, this news comes as bit of a surprise given Orbit's success in the EU region, in which they most recently took first at CWL London. Given that the entire Orbit brand was essentially bought out by Red Reserve, it makes sense that the new team will be playing under the Red banner, but it's still a bit of a surprise given Red's North American ties.
Call of Duty
Red Reserve forms in wake of MLG Vegas
December 29, 2016
Red Reserve announced their new team for the Call of Duty 2017 competitive season consisting of Parasite, Swarley, Pacman, and Llama.
ANALYSIS
MLG Vegas saw not only major shake-ups to the meta, but to teams as well. eUnited and compLexity both dissolved in the wake of poor performances only for the two to now come together under Red Reserve. Red Reserve announced Swarley, Pacman, and Llama on the roster with Parasite acting as team captain. All four players are seasoned and skilled veterans of Call of Duty who will, hopefully, gel together. Swarley, Llama, and Parasite have played side-by-side at MLG Vegas, but all three seemed uncoordinated. Meanwhile, Pacman struggled to carry eUnited through the open bracket. The awkward performances may have been the result of a sudden change in the meta due to a balance patch released only a week before MLG Vegas. Red Reserve will make their debut at MLG Atlanta on February 10-12.
