G2 Esports have announced the signing of five top professional Call of Duty players for the Black Ops 4 season, finalizing much of Rostermania for top teams in the NA region.
After much speculation, G2 have officially secured the signatures of Ricky 'Ricky' Stacy, Brice 'Faccento' Faccento, Martin 'Chino' Chino, Rasim 'Blazt' Ogresevic and Jacob 'Decemate' Cato.
Chino and Decemate both join after leaving Team Envy, while Blazt and Ricky join from the recently released CompLexity roster.
Faccento was the only player left unaccounted for from the Echo Fox roster of the 2018 season, who like compLexity are stepping out of Call of Duty for the time being.
Their place in the CWL (should they qualify) is taken Spanish organization G2, who return to Call of Duty esports for the first time since early 2017.
After a cryptic teaser posted on October 24, the organization announced their full roster on October 25.
With @ASTROGaming, we’re excited to announce our expansion into @CallofDuty #BlackOps4 for the upcoming @CODWorldLeague
Welcome to the #G2ARMY & #ASTROfamily @Blazt, @MJCheen, @decemate, @BriceFaccento & @Ricky!

The team have already been spotted practicing together in Search and Destroy tournaments online, as the competitive Call of Duty scene awaits the release of a full CWL ruleset.
The first event of the 2019 CWL season will take place in Las Vegas, on December 7-9, 2018. Given the pro point standings and Stage Two placings of these players from last season, G2 should be guaranteed a pool play spot.
