SpaceLy announces new roster for Black Ops 4

Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale has announced his team for the upcoming Black Ops 4 season, and he’s brought some familiar faces with him.

After bouncing around between multiple teams during the WWII season, SpaceLy seems to have found stability with some of his Elevate teammates who made a surprising run at Champs back in August.

Joining SpaceLy for Black Ops 4 will be former teammates Chance ‘Maux’ Moncivaez and Michael ‘MajorManiak’ Szymaniak, along with two new additions in Jared ‘Nagafen’ Harrell and Colt ‘Havok’ McLendon.

Nagafen may not have been with the Elevate team that finished 7-8 at Champs, but he has some experience with SpaceLy, as the two played together with Elevate at CWL Anaheim in June.

Havok, meanwhile, had a bit of a rough WWII season with Gone Gaming where the team failed to place better than 17-20 at any event.

Even though only three members of this team have played together for an extended amount of time, SpaceLy nevertheless remains optimistic about the team, saying he is looking “forward to our new teammates buying into our system & grinding [with] them.”

SpaceLy also states that the team is looking for an organization to represent them for the season.

Regardless of whether they find an organization to play under, they will have to wade through the open bracket at CWL Vegas in order to secure a spot in pool play.

2021 CDL Challengers info announced: Scouting & Elite Series

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
