The roster craze is over, for now. A lot happened in the past 48 hours and I’m sure that I wasn’t the only one with a head spinning nearly off of my shoulders by the end of it. The amount of team changes that took place is unheard of, and I do believe this was the most ridiculous roster scramble in a long time for the competitive Call of Duty scene. Once the first roster change happened, there were so many that came after the first and it was difficult to keep track of. It’s sort of a bittersweet aspect of this community. The excitement of seeing so many new rosters is definitely there, but it really gets to be ridiculous when you see one or two players jumping from team to team. This is ultimately a drawback for the competitive COD scene. The refreshing thing to consider is that Major League Gaming is clearly trying to encourage players to stay with their organizations even through a bad placement. With more rules and guidelines, I’m sure that the outlook for competitive Call of Duty will be positive.
OpTic Gaming – Nadeshot, Proofy, Clayster, and Scump
- Proofy came over from FaZe Black.
- MBoZe moved to OpTic Nation.
I am going to start this off by saying that OpTic easily won the roster scramble. They picked up a slayer and a play-maker in Proofy, and formed a roster that can certainly give Complexity a run for their money. Under no circumstance is MBoZe an sub-par player, but the reality is that to be successful in Ghosts, you need slayers on your team. Complexity has ACHES, Karma, and Crimsix as their slayers. These are arguably the best slayers in the game. When the situation calls for it, TeePee can hang and slay with the best of them. Proofy is an excellent addition to this team and I truly believe we will see OpTic competing against Complexity soon in some invigorating matches in the near-future.
OpTic Nation – MBoZe, Killa, MirX, and Ricky
- MBoZe moved over from the OpTic Gaming roster.
- Killa and MirX came over from JustUs Pro.
- Ricky came over from Strictly Business.
Upon the announcement of this roster I was indifferent about it. Considering the fallout of Curse Las Vegas, I was surprised to learn that three out of the four players from that team would reunite on the OpTic Nation roster. Now this team is not a part of the MLG Call of Duty Pro League Season Two, so there’s some room for flexibility here. I personally feel that this team will be excellent at Search and Destroy and with Killa on board, they will be able to develop effective strategies for respawn gametypes.
Team EnVyUs – Merk, Nameless, Studyy, and Parasite
- Rambo moved to coaching role.
- Parasite joined after leaving FaZe Black.
The would be final roster for EnVy resulted in the strangest acquisition I’ve seen in a while. At the beginning of the roster craze, Parasite was released from Curse’s primary team. Parasite decided that the best decision for his career was to join FaZe Black where he would comfortably hold a Pro League spot, and will play with a consistent group of players. Not long after EnVyUs announced their decision to move Rambo, they picked up Parasite as their fourth player for the league and into the future. I don’t know how I feel about this roster. Rambo was a play-maker for the former EnVyUs roster. He may not have flourished in the slaying department, but he had some of the strongest objective statistics from Season One of the Pro League. I understand Parasite is a great player, but Rambo had a dedication to nV that was clear, and releasing him came as a shock to me.
Strictly Business – Spacely, John, Methodz, and Stainville
- Ricky leaves to join OpTic Nation.
- Stainville acquired after leaving JustUs Pro.
