With less than a week left to go until the start of CWL Vegas, Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale has announced what organization his team will be representing at the event.

After weeks of speculation, SpaceLy has confirmed that his team will be representing Str8 Rippin for the first event of the Black Ops 4 season.

His statement on the issue came after a leak surfaced on December 1 that Str8 Rippin would be returning to Call of Duty with SpaceLy’s team after making waves during the Infinite Warfare season in 2017.

The leak did end up being correct, SpaceLy confirmed an important caveat in his own announcement. 

While they will be representing Str8 Rippin in Las Vegas, no official contract has been signed, with the players and the organization coming to a mutual agreement for this one event alone while they continue searching for a long-term org.

SpaceLy further clarified the issue in a response to a concerned fan who felt that he deserved an official contract, saying that they had a chance to receive salaries but “turned them down to wait until after [they] qualify.”

Despite having gone unsigned and unrepresented up to this point, the roster has been one of the hottest in Call of Duty.

They came in second at the first CWL 2K tournament on November 4-5, finished 5-8 in the second on November 11-12, and finally rounded things out by winning the third tournament on November 18.

Str8 Rippin’s road at CWL Vegas will begin with the Play-In Tournament where they will play their first match against Mindfreak.
