Professional CoD player Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris, has officially joined the London Royal Ravens from the New York Subliners.
The Call of Duty League’s inaugural season is well underway, and franchises are beginning to gravitate towards roster changes if their season has started disappointingly. A couple of sides who are struggling are the London Royal Ravens and New York Subliners.
With five events in the book for all sides, London have accumulated a meager 50 CDL points and New York just 40. This puts them T7 and T9 respectively, but it looks like both are considering roster changes moving forward.
Trei ‘Zer0′ Morris, one of the best EU CoD players ever, was benched by New York on February 28, off the back of the Subliners’ early-season struggles. Initially replaced by Nick ‘Happy’ Suda, Makenzie ‘Mack’ Kelley has since taken the starting spot.
On May 20, Royal Ravens confirmed that Zer0 would be joining their roster, pending league approval, just days out from CDL Seattle.

Subliners thanked Trei for his time on the roster, as Mack now looks to be his replacement full time on the starting lineup.

It was previously leaked by Twitter user CDL Intel that Zer0 would be joining London Royal Ravens in place of Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley. They also stated that it looks like Jurd will be staying with London, in a transfer rather than a trade.
Although their original plan was to bring Dylan ‘MadCat’ Daly into the starting lineup (he is currently a substitute), that change appears to have, for whatever reason, failed to materialize. This seemingly forced London to make a move for Zer0.

Once the move is approved by the league, Zer0 should be starting for London in time for CDL Seattle, which kicks off on May 22. The move does not come as a major surprise, as London’s recent tournament results have left a lot to be desired.
The English organization placed 5-6th at CDL Florida and 7-8th at the Chicago Home Series. While not necessarily poor placements, it’s fair to say they are not currently challenging the top teams consistently enough.
