North American esports organization BitterSweet have announced their return to competitive Call of Duty for CWL Anaheim, replicating their same move from last year's season.

BitterSweet's last involvement with Call of Duty esports came at last year's CWL Anaheim, where they fielded that roster that later joined Ghost Gaming - Michael "SpaceLy" Schmale, Andres "Lacefield" Lacefield, Devin "LlamaGod" Tran and Chance "Maux" Moncivaez.

Despite the team managing a top 12 placing and their spot at Stage 2 of the Global Pro League and the Call of Duty championship, the deal the roster had with BitterSweet was only intended to last for the one event.

BitterSweet have since gone through a rebrand and have been fielding teams in Rainbow6, but are now making their full return to Call of Duty - just in time for Anaheim once again.

Recruiting an amateur roster but one with a lot of potential talent, the team will have to grind through the open bracket if they are to make themselves known - and better yet qualify for the LCQ for the Call of Duty championship.

The players have all been competing throughout the CoD: WWII season, but with limited success at the major open events, Nick "Hate" O'Connor managing the best placing so far with a top 32 finish at both CWL Seattle and CWL Atlanta, while playing for Earthroot Gaming.

The roster also includes other up and coming players Eric "JetLi" Phan, Jesus "HumanJesus" Hernandez and Devin "Demise".

The team already played the most recent CWL 2K together, where they managed a top 16 placing, eliminated by eventual runners up Lightning Pandas.

Regardless, they should be heading into the CWL Anaheim with a good seed, considering the roster has played at the previous open events throughout the 2018 season.

It remains to be seen if they can surprise the competition like BitterSweet's last CWL Anaheim roster.
