During a stream on April 4, Red Reserve player Matthew 'Skrapz' Marshall hinted at FaZe Clan potentially scooping up the Pro League spot held by his current team. However, with RR already secured in place for CWL London in May, FaZe’s purchase of the spot may have to wait, despite Red Reserve's ongoing issues - including claims from Trei 'Zer0' Morris that they have been made homeless by the organization.
Since Skrapz’ bombshell, rumors have swirled regarding a potential new-look FaZe Pro League roster. April 5 marked the lifting of the current roster lock, allowing teams to make moves during the transfer period.
One potential roster, centered around current RR players Skrapz and Trei 'Zer0' Morris, which also included Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto, McArthur ‘Cellium’ Jovel and Maurice 'Fero' Hernandez was posted to the CoDCompetitive subreddit - leading to increased speculation.
Rated ‘confirmed’ the squad in a comment on the CoDCompetitive subreddit, where a post had been made about the potential FaZe roster. “Replace two people & you’ve got the roster. One on loan one recently dropped maybe I dunno,” stated Rated, adding a winking face to his comment.
After one fan guessed that the players he was referring to were Dillion ‘Attach’ Price and Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan, Rated added: “Ding, ding, ding - we have a winner.”
The rumored squad seemingly falls in accordance with CWL Pro League rules as at least one current RR player would have to remain on the roster if FaZe picks up the spot.
The current Red Reserve roster, however, looks set for a split, with Skrapz and Rated firing shots at each other on Twitter about a number of rumored roster moves and changes.
Just who that holdover player would be is at this point unknown, despite this rumored and ‘confirmed’ roster including Skrapz and Zer0. Both players recently announced their free agency from the RR roster, and that they were open to discussions with other organizations.
While Rated may have ‘confirmed’ the roster on Reddit, an official announcement is yet to be made and potential plans could still change as they attempt to secure their lineup.
