Joshh and Dqvee are both big names in the European Call of Duty scene, having been around for some time now. Joshh is probably best known for his time on Splyce, which saw him place 2nd at the 2016 Call of Duty Championships, during the Black Ops 3 season.
Dqvee has struggled to find success since the Infinite Warfare season, in which he won both CWL Birmingham Open and CWL Sheffield, both while playing for Epsilon Esports. Both men have had issues finding a long-term team in Black Ops 4, bouncing around from roster to roster but never really sticking. However, their latest organization will be hoping to break that trend.
On June 9, Team WaR announced that they would be taking the two EU veterans on, alongside up-and-comers Adam ‘Defrag’ Matthews, Cameron ‘Cammy’ McKilligan and Connor ‘Weeman’ Chilton.
All of the players have experienced similar struggles in Black Ops 4, and will be looking to turn their fortunes around on Team WaR. Weeman, Cammy and Defrag were last on Kairos Esports, but all left in May 2019.
The entirely British roster marks a shift for the American organization, and was announced via Twitter, by the org’s owners, ‘Surge’ and ‘Knowledge’, as they prepare for their “favorite tournament of the year”.

Similarly, Joshh was on Kairos Esports as they – alongside Nick ‘Nolson’ Nolson – finished in 2nd place at the CWL London Open 2019, winning $12,500 in the process.
The new Team WaR roster will be hoping to springboard off Kairos’ success, and potentially win the CWL Anaheim Open 2019, with $15,000 on the line for the winner of the Open.
You can follow all the action from Anaheim, in both the professional and open brackets, on Dexerto, when it kicks off on June 14.
