Call of Duty Roster Update - Forward, March!

By John Nomis | |

While the North American Call of Duty World League kicks off its third week of play later today, we at Cloud9 are shifting our sights to UMG South Carolina on February 12, where the newest iteration of our Call of Duty roster will represent Cloud9 and begin their pursuit of Challenge Division points. Over the course of the last month and a half, several events took place that ultimately led to the dissolution of our original roster and the creation of another.

First, the fledgling roster of BURNS, Merk, SiLLy, and Mochila fell one round short to Dream Team and was eliminated from the NA CWL Online Qualifying Tournament. Shortly after this failure to qualify into the first season of the CWL, BURNS and Merk elected to part ways with Cloud9. For a short time, SiLLY and Mochila made attempts at reforming the roster, filtering through the free agency pool in search of Challenge Division talent to no avail. Now, with the CWL well under way and with the first North American Tier 1 event in just over two weeks, we'd like to introduce the four new members who will wear Cloud9 blue at the upcoming UMG South Carolina event:

Lamar "Accuracy" Abedi C9Accuracy
Jonathan "sinful" Baez C9sinful sinfuuul
Adam "KiLLa" Sloss C9K1LLa K1lla93
Cameron "CaLiFa" Joyner C9CaLiFa CaLiFaCOD CaMCaLiFa CaMCaLiFa
“I’m confident that Lamar, Jonathan, Adam, and Cameron will go above and beyond our expectations during their Challenge Division run over the next few months. As they pursue qualification into the CWL Pro Division, we’ll look to provide all the support necessary to cultivate them into a top competitive team.”
— Danan Flander, Cloud9 General Manager
“I’m really excited about the opportunity to represent an organization of the caliber of Cloud9. Along with this, I’m pleased to be working with a group of talented players that is willing to work out all the kinks required to be a great team.”
— Lamar "Accuracy" Abedi, Team Captain
