Albert Petrosyan

North American esports organization Elevate are back in the thick of things within Call of Duty esports, having found their way back into the CWL Pro League.

On April 19, Elevate announced their re-entry into the CWL Pro League after having successfully purchased the spot of Excelerate Gaming, confirming what had been heavily speculated in the days leading up to the sale.

In addition to competing in the Pro League, Elevate will also compete at the upcoming CWL London major tournament, taking ExG’s spot in Pool D.

Elevate’s new CWL Pro League roster

As per CWL rules, Elevate had to keep at least one player from ExG’s roster to be eligible for the Pro League. The team has, in fact, decided to keep three – ProFeeZy, Skyz, and MRuiz – with Brack moving to Denial Esports and JetLi entering free agency.

The other two roster spots have been filled by former Denial players Wailers and Breszy. Here is Elevate’s new roster heading into CWL London the remaining weeks of the Pro League:

  • Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno
  • Christopher ‘ProFeeZy’ Astudillo
  • Mike ‘MRuiz’ Ruiz
  • Wailers ‘Wailers’ Locart
  • Paul ‘Breszy’ Breszynski

Excelerate leave rocky legacy in Pro League

Having sold their spot in the CWL Pro League, Excelerate are officially out of the pro scene in CoD esports, and the legacy they left will be considered rocky at best.

The negativity surrounding the org first started when they controversially dropped FA5TBALLA from their starting lineup just a week into the Pro League, which prompted heavy backlash from the rest of the community.

FA5TBALLA - TwitterThe controversial demotion of FA5TBALLA was what started a downhill trend for Excelerate’s popularity in the pro CoD scene.

This was followed by an anonymous source publicly accusing the org of blackmailing their players and refusing to pay salary, which some feel was indirectly confirmed to be the case by CEO Justin Tan.

This was all on top of the fact that the team managed just a 3-8 record in Division B, not to mention lowly performances at both CWL Vegas and Fort Worth
