Team Vitality’s new Call of Duty roster will not be attending the upcoming CWL Anaheim major, leaving the roster set to head their separate ways.
After failing to qualify for the CWL Pro League Stage Two followed by a top 64 placing at CWL Seattle, the previous Team Vitality roster split, leaving only Wailers “Wailers” Locart on the lineup.
British players Mark “MarkyB” Bryceland and Tom “Moose” Handley left the team on May 1st, leaving Team Vitality in search of an entirely new roster.
After being released from Splyce and not unable to join another Pro League team, Thomas “Tommey” Trewren joined, alongside Adam “Peatie” Peate and Shea “QwiKeR” Sweeney.

The new roster played the most recent European CWL 2K, and finished 3rd-4th, the same result they managed in the United Kingdom CWL National Circuit.
They were beaten in the National Circuit by a team of upcoming players, and Vitality would have no doubt expected to win the tournament with the caliber of their players.
Perhaps a combination of their performances, team chemistry and other factors have led to their decision to miss CWL Anaheim, or it could simply be a logistics issue.
Tommey tweeted the team’s announcement, explaining that “things just didn’t work out.”
Unfortunately I won't be attending #CWLAnaheim next week. Things just didn't work out and with that being said, both Peatie and Qwiker have decided to look elsewhere.
If you wanna' play the 2K tomorrow and need a player for the National Circuit, let me know.

It is unclear from Tommey’s tweet if Peatie and QwiKeR still plan to attend CWL Anaheim, but with a different roster and organization.
Tommey’s own future and that of Wailers is also unclear, as Tommey seems to hint at being a free agent suggesting he is open to playing the National Circuit with a new team.
Team Vitality themselves have not made any official team announcements.
