Just in time for CWL Anaheim, a roster featuring former Ghost Gaming player Chance “Maux” Moncivaez and former GGEA Orange star Tristan “Spoof” Green have secured an organization.
The team had been left without an organization with only a few days to go ahead of June 15th, when Anaheim begins, due to what Maux called “unfortunate last second circumstances”.
The team’s fortune has turned however, as Impact Gaming (not to be confused with the 2013 world championship winning org “Impact”) have come to the rescue, signing up the talented squad only days before Anaheim.
Also featuring former Lightning Pandas and Enigma6 player Nicholas “Proto” Maldonado, as well as former Lethal Gaming player Mike “MajorManiak”, the team haven’t been together long.

Maux, Proto and MajorManiak played the May 19th CWL 2K together along with another former GGEA Orange player Austin “Believe” Smith, finishing top 16.
They then swapped out Believe for his former teammate Spoof, and the team managed one round less in the June 10th CWL 2K, finishing top 32.
Despite this, the squad clearly feel capable of making a run at Anaheim, and so have stuck it out and now find themselves under Impact Gaming and with a decent seed in the Open Bracket.

While none of these players have lived up to expectations this year, with both Proto and Maux missing out on the CWL Pro League, and Spoof narrowly missing out after a game five defeat with GGEA Orange which would have seen them in Stage Two.
MajorManiak may be an unknown entity for many fans. He made a name for himself as a dominant SnD player, particularly in the Black Ops 3 season, but since transitioning to variant competition for the WWII season has struggled to break into the top teams.
All four players will go into Anaheim -the final open event of the season – hoping they can prove they have what it takes to compete at the top level of Call of Duty esports, with Black Ops 4 right around the corner in October.
