Call of Duty pro player Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale has revealed that he will no longer be in action at CWL Fort Worth on March 15, following his surprising benching on Gen.G.

Update, March 9: SpaceLy has confirmed he will no longer be apart of CWL Fort Worth after the decision to not pursue a roster spot. "Things changed and I actually won’t be attending Fort Worth," said SpaceLy.

This will not be the end of the season for him however, the former Gen.G player will reassess his options during the next transfer window. 

'Going to wait for the next roster change period next month and hope better opportunities open up. Better then rushing into a forced/ugly situation," explained SpaceLy.

Original story as follows.

Despite Gen.G establishing themselves as one of the biggest surprises of the CWL Pro League, significant changes to the roster have been made ahead of the second major LAN event of the season.

It was revealed on March 6 that SpaceLy, a key component in the team securing organizational help for CWL Las Vegas and Pro League after playing under the 'Team Space' banner, was out and he would be replaced by Midnight Esports player Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon.

However, SpaceLy could be back in action at the Texas-based event with a new squad.

The Gen.G organization stepped into Call of Duty with Black Ops 4.

The former Luminosity Gaming pro revealed that he had a new roster lined up and would not be competing in the open bracket, instead working his way back onto a current Pro League team.

He tweeted: “Looks like I may be at Fort Worth in pools and still in the league after all. If this all goes down like its being proposed. Couldn’t have happened smoother,” with the two hands up emoji attached to signify his delight with what is in the works.

SpaceLy has yet to reveal which team he is in talks with to join.

As with all roster moves during the Rostermania transfer period, nothing is official until there is confirmation from the teams and players involved in the moves.
