Teams in the Call of Duty World League are banking on final moves before the transfer window closes, and a struggling Enigma6 has made some roster changes to build with their lineup in the coming events.

The CWL regular season has seen teams rise and fall throughout the year. While orgs like OpTic Gaming and eUnited have impressed throughout the season, not all teams have gelled together quite so well through now.

It’s because of this that numerous teams have been making last ditch efforts to salvage their season by changing up their roster to test out new experiments or make strong pushes for the year’s final events.

In a June 20 announcement, Enigma6 revealed their deadline moves by adding both Mehran ‘Mayhem’ Anjomshoa and Paul ‘Breszy’ Breszynski to their active five-man roster to field for the rest of the season.

The full squad will consist of Jordon ‘General’ General, Matthew ‘KiSMET’ Tinsley, Adam ‘GodRx’ Brown as well as Mayhem and Breszy while being led by Coach Troy ‘Sender’ Michaels.

Fans were shocked to see Bradley ‘Frosty’ Bergstrom seemingly dropped from the team, but the org is making moves to find any improvement before the season is up. Similarly, Eric ‘JetLi’ Phan announced earlier on June 19 that he had become a free agent before any official team announcement.

As mentioned before, the E6 have been struggling all year to string good results together, and are hoping that the new changes will find them some good fortune in the latter portion of the season.

Both new additions have previously shown promise in the CWL and will have a great chance to showcase what they can bring to the table for E6.

CWLWith E6 at the bottom of Division B, it looks like the org is open to new roster experiments to try out.

While there’s not a chance for E6 to go positive in their record through the 2019 regular season campaign, it should still give the new roster iteration a chance to make mistakes without too much on the line.

The changes will be something for Enigma6 to experiment with as they’re tied for last place in the Pro League alongside Luminosity with a record of 5-13.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.

How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups went live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.

As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.

Black Ops 2 Invitational teams & bracket

Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.

Standing out among the eight rosters is a true throwback. The 2014 world championship team of Crimsix, Karma, TeePee, and ACHES, will be reuniting. Formerly representing Complexity and then Evil Geniuses, these four players haven’t been on the same team since 2014.

The full list of teams competing in the Black Ops 2 Invitational can be found below.

  • Team Dr Disrespect: Dr Disrespect, ZLaner, StoneMountain64, & KingRichard
