Call of Duty roster during the last roster change period of the 2019 season, with Nick ‘Nolson’ Nolson seemingly set to step aside.
Call of Duty’s final Rostermania period for the Black Ops 4 season is upon us, as teams gear up for the home stretch of the competitive season.
With the window to make moves only open until June 20, teams have already made a few tweaks ahead of what could be an incredibly frantic period. Spanish squad Team Heretics set things rolling with their change, but they might not be alone as Splyce are seemingly set to make a move of their own.
Following their disappointing 7-8th place finish at CWL Anaheim, Splyce star Daniel 'Loony' Loza thanked Nick 'Nolson' Nolson - who initially joined as the team’s substitute before replacing Lamar 'Accuracy' Abedi - for stepping in.
Loony tweeted: “I appreciate you for filling in for us the last week of the pro league and at Anaheim. You took a risk and I thank you for that. The 2 wins you helped us get at the league were huge. Hope you learned something from it. Best of luck to you! @NolsonCoD"

Who could Splyce pick up?
While a change to the Splyce roster hasn’t been confirmed, thanking Nolson for his service would suggest that the North American-European mix squad would have some irons in the fire.
Prior to Nolson joining the active roster, Splyce had been linked with a move for Luminosity Gaming’s Pierce ‘Gunless’ Hillman following his removal from the team's starting roster. Gunless remains on the bench for Luminosity and could easily find himself as a key piece in this Rostermania period.
It remains to be seen who the team decides is the right fit for them, especially with players continuing to drop off teams as restricted free agents. They won’t have much time to deliberate, as the window slams shut and rosters are locked in for the remainder of the season on Thursday.
