Red Reserve’s European Call of Duty players will be operating out of the USA for the majority of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season, but their initial plans have already changed somewhat.
The British players had been on the hunt for a US base of operations since the release of Treyarch’s latest CoD title, with Texas being on the top of their list for potential destinations.
Unfortunately, the search in the southern state was bore no fruit, forcing the team to look elsewhere. However, on November 29 it was revealed that they had finally found their new home, settling on Vegas.
“Plan was to move to Texas, couldn't find a house that worked so we had to switch it up,” said Rhys ‘Rated’ Price on Twitter. “Tomorrow me and the squad will be flying out to move Into our new team house In Vegas, excited and very appreciative of this opportunity from Red, I want my first win this year nothing less.”
The Welshman went on to confirm that the team will be putting more of a focus on streams and content once they’re settled in, saying: “You will get constant streams from us out there & also will have pictures and videos of the house.”
you will get constant streams from us out there & also will have pictures and video's of the house from @RedReserve as soon as we make them, time to cop a W for Europe.— Rhys Price (@Rated_COD) November 29, 2018
Rated’s comments about wanting his first win are hardly surprising. Red Reserve were the bridesmaids at CWL Atlanta and CWL Anaheim during the WWII season and also took third place at the CWL Pro League Stage 2 finals.
Rated and company were the best European hope for the majority of the season but struggled to get over the final hurdle and take home a trophy.
Rated also finished second at CWL Sheffield during the Infinite Warfare season and the Call of Duty World Championship in Black Ops 3.
Two of his teammates, Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris and Ben ‘Bance’ Bance, have tasted success at a major event, winning the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 Finals in 2017.
The fact that squads like Red Reserve and Team Reciprocity have decided to base themselves in North America for the Black Ops 4 season shows that the Europeans mean business and will be coming in swinging at CWL Las Vegas on December 7.
