Call of Duty is currently in a transfer period, where players are available to trade and be released by organizations looking to strengthen their existing lineup.
With the CWL Pro League set to return in May, many teams are in the process of revamping their rosters, and one of the most talked about team changes has been at Team Envy.
With rostermania now in full swing, notorious leaker CoDBurner has been discussing what he believes is going on at various organizations including Team Envy, who have been mentioned by the mysterious figure on numerous occasions.
Since Envy picked up the World Championship-winning squad from Evil Geniuses back in September, the lineup have had a difficult time, finishing 9-12 at both CWL Las Vegas and CWL Fort Worth. They currently sit fifth in their CWL Pro League division with a 6-5 record.
Originally, CoDBurner reported that Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland wanted to drop the entirety of the roster apart from himself, but after days of uncertainty, this doesn’t seem like it will be the case.
According to the CoDBurner on April 11, SiLLY will now retain his place on Envy alongside Huke and Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price, with Jacob ‘Decemate’ Cato coming in from G2 Esports, and Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez joining on loan from 100 Thieves.
While it appears SiLLY will remain as part of Team Envy, the CoDBurner states that there will be no place for Assault, who could head back to former organization Evil Geniuses, where he won the Call of Duty World Championship with most of the current Envy roster back in August.
In response to a tweet from Daniel ‘Loony’ Loza, who commented on how quickly people forget players' previous performances, Assault stated that “you’re only as good as your team is,” appearing to fire a shot at his Envy teammates.

SiLLY immediately asked what the statement meant, with Assault telling the Envy player: “We had no idea how to play as a team.”

In response, SiLLY simply stated: “I think our lack of killing anything might have been connected to that,” referencing the struggles the team have had throughout the Black Ops 4 season.

The roster change period in Call of Duty is set to wrap up on Monday, April 22, as teams turn their focus to the Pro League and CWL London events which both take place in May.
