According to Dexerto sources, LA Guerrillas have signed three of their Challengers stars from the Academy team to make the step up into the main CDL roster, with an announcement expected imminently.
LA Guerrillas have had some serious struggles throughout the start of the 2023 CDL season, culminating with a 9-12th finish at Major 1 in Raleigh, North Carolina, their only win coming against a Challengers team.
This came shortly after the Guerrillas broke the bank to bring former Atlanta FaZe main AR Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson into the squad to lead them to victory, though following their early-season performances, it became apparent a roster change would be on the cards.
The team is undergoing a huge shift for Major 2, with three new players making the step up to the CDL after a great showing at the CDL Pro-Am in Raleigh.
The three players joining Arcitys are Adam ‘Assault’ Garcia, Kaden ‘Exceed’ Stockdale, and JoeDeceives. This leaves Travis ‘Neptune’ McCloud, Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland, and Kris ‘Spart’ Cervantez outside of the fold.
Dexerto can also confirm that Neptune and Spart — the latter of whom signed a 3-year contract in the offseason — will be playing on the Academy team in the Challengers circuit.
