Envy and Red Reserve faced off in the CWL Pro League on March 26, in a nail-biting five game series, which Envy stole away with a win in the final Search & Destroy.
It was first claimed that ACHES was on the chopping block by the CoDBurner back on March 20, claiming that Envy wanted to "replace him with a player more capable of playing with the Maddox RFB assault rifle."
Now, it appears they have picked out such a player - Red Reserve's own Matthew 'Skrapz' Marshall.
However, it's not straight forward, as Skrapz' price should Envy want him, according to the CoDBurner, is in the region of $300,000. Skrapz is apparently also unsure of the move.
This information aligns with a tweet posted by Rhys 'Rated' Price, who made it clear that Skrapz' purchase price was hefty - perhaps too hefty for Envy.
you think Envy are going to pay 200k for Matt 😂— Rhys Price (@Rated_COD) March 20, 2019
But, immediately after the rumors were shared to Twitter, Skrapz shut down this speculation, and clarified that it wasn't even $200,000.
Ain’t 200 either, red owe me 40k and have done since s2 playoffs on ww2. Couldn’t take the piss like that after all these months, been a shit show.— skrapz (@skrapzg) March 27, 2019
Additionally, the CoDBurner claims that Red Reserve are still planning on dropping Ben 'Bance' Bance. Despite announcing free agency immediately following CWL Fort Worth, Bance has retained his spot on the starting lineup for the ongoing cross-divisional play in the CWL Pro League.
CoDBurner explains that this is because the team's substitute, Conrad 'Shockz' Rymarek, had to return to Australia. In response to the CoDBurner's claims however, Shockz simply stated "false".

Apparently "half of the team" wanted Bance dropped, while the other wanted him to stay, but ultimately, he is set to be dropped and replaced by Alex 'Alexx' Carpenter - according to the CoDBurner.
