After teasing the announcement of a new Call of Duty roster for the last few weeks, Denial Esports has finally revealed their new acquisition just ahead of the CWL Pro League.
The former Call of Duty Championship organization is re-entering the Call of Duty scene in 2019 and is doing so with one of the hottest rosters around.
On January 29, they announced the acquisition of the former Overtime eSport roster consisting of Wailers ‘Wailers’ Locart, Ryan ‘ZeeK’ Lapierre, Lucas ‘rizK’ Derambure, Paul ‘Breszy’ Breszynski, and Nathan ‘Natshay’ Dupuis.

Despite having teased the acquisition of Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale’s team in early January, but it looks as though they have decided to go in a different direction with the Overtime roster.
The French roster was one of the most exciting teams to compete during the CWL Pro League Qualifier and certainly made a few new fans along the way with their passionate play.
While the roster only finished the first event of the Black Ops 4 season with a 25th-28th placing, they turned things around in a big way during the Qualifier.
Despite being in a stacked Pool C along with teams such as Midnight Esports, 100 Thieves, and the aforementioned Team SpaceLy, they managed a 3-3 record to make it into the playoffs.
They initially fell to Team Sween in their first winners match, but then went on a hot streak to make it into the League.
They first took out FaZe Clan.Black before upsetting FaZe Clan with a nailbiting 3-2 win that sent them into the final qualifying game where they defeated Mindfreak 3-1 to earn the final coveted spot in the CWL Pro League.
Now flying the Denial banner, the French powerhouse squad will look ahead to the CWL Pro League, which kicks of on February 4, where they are slotted into Division B.
Denial Esports will also be in attendance at the next open event, CWL Fort Worth, which takes place March 15-17.
