Splyce’s Call of Duty team has experienced one of the worst travel days in the history of esports!
The team’s coach, Mark ‘MarkyB’ Bryceland, took to Twitter to provide an update on the “Splyce Chronicles”, beginning with a delayed flight for Ben ‘Bance’ Bance that has resulted in him having to stay in Philadelphia overnight.
But this was just the beginning as Dylan ‘MadCat’ Daly somehow managed to break his Macbook when his drink popped open!
As if that wasn’t enough, Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley “lost his week old iPhone 7 on the plane” and Joshua-Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard’s entire baggage has gone missing....
Even for the veteran players of Splyce, who have made the trip across the pond more times than they can count, a series of unfortunate events on this scale is virtually unheard of.
The team was travelling to their boot camp in America ahead of the 2018 Call of Duty World Championship, which will run from August 15 - 19 in Columbus.
The European squad will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing run in Stage 2 of the CWL Pro League that saw them miss out on the playoffs with a seventh place finish in Division B.
After the trials and tribulations that they have faced in their recent travels, the players are clearly due for some good luck and will be hoping that they it comes their way when the $1.5 million World Championship kicks off.
