After announcing his release from Splyce as a restricted free agent, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren has revealed more information about his future.
The Call of Duty veteran joined Splyce, alongside Dylan ‘Madcat’ Daly, Ben ‘Bance’ Bance and Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley, at the beginning of the 2018 season as the series returned to boots on the ground gameplay.
Despite some good results at CWL Dallas and CWL Birmingham, all has not been right with the squad, who finished their most recent tournament, CWL Seattle, with a disappointing top 20 placing.
Although a replacement has yet to be announced, it looks like Tommey is embracing streaming for the time being, as he took to Twitter to say he’s now an unemployed gamer and would appreciate any help towards becoming a full-time streamer.
I’m an unemployed gamer now, all support towards becoming a full-time streamer is appreciated. Currently at 505 subscribers. The goal for the end of the stream is 1,000, let’s get it!https://t.co/L6i4VeJHkQ

When asked by host and commentator Alan ‘Bricetacular’ Brice if that meant he definitely wouldn’t be playing for Splyce during Stage 2 of the CWL Pro League, Tommey confirmed he had been benched/dropped and wouldn’t play with the team even if their replacement plans didn’t go through, as the team just hadn’t been working together before and wouldn’t in future either.
I'm been dropped/benched, of course I'm not mate.— Tommey (@Tommey) April 30, 2018
If what they have planned falls through, I'd stay on the bench regardless. If it didn't work before, it would be even worse after this.— Tommey (@Tommey) April 30, 2018
Despite his disappointing position, it looks like the Call of Duty veteran is making the most of a bad situation and focusing on streaming. However, it’s not all said and done yet, as the roster lock doesn’t come into force until May 7th, meaning there’s still time for Tommey to find a new home on another European roster.
