Longtime Call of Duty veteran competitor and two-time World Champion Jordan 'JKap' Kaplan has found a new home for the remainder of the current CWL season.

On April 22, Evil Geniuses confirmed their acquisition of JKap from eUnited, and that he would be joining the org's revamped roster for the upcoming CWL London major tournament, as well as the remainder of the CWL Pro League.

Along with bringing on JKap, EG also revealed that they had signed Timothy 'Phantomz' Landis from FaZe Clan Black as the fifth member of their new squad.


Evil Geniuses' new CWL roster

With the acquisition of JKap and Phantomz, Evil Geniuses have now rounded off their five-man roster for presumably the rest of the season, following their April 18 move that brought on Apathy.

With all of the moves now confirmed, here is EG's new five-mad going into CWL London and beyond:

  • Jordan 'JKap' Attach
  • Timothy 'Phantomz' Landis
  • Dillon 'Attach' Price
  • Bryan 'Apathy' Zhelyazkov
  • John 'Xotic' Bruno

In order to make room for JKap and Phantomz on the roster, EG bid farewell to Tyler 'FeLo' Johnson and Jevon 'Goonjar' Gooljar-Lim, who are both now officially free agents.

The org also confirmed that they had dropped Mathew 'Royalty' Faithfull, although that had been pretty much in books ever since Royalty joined UYU on April 19.

JKap reunited with Apathy and Attach

JKap joining Evil Geniuses reunited him with the two players he's won both of his World Championships with in recent years. He and Attach, of course, were part of that Denial Esports squad that took home first at the 2015 CoD Championships,

Following that season, the Team Envy roster that he and Apathy were part of went to back-to-back CWL Champs Grand Finals in 2016 and 2017, winning the first and losing to OpTic Gaming in the second.

Stage set for revenge matches at CWL London

The stage will be set for JKap to get immediate revenge on his former org at CWL London as both Evil Geniuses and eUnited have been grouped together in Pool C.

It's been well documented that JKap's time with eUnited was contentious to say the least, culminating with a demotion from the starting lineup, followed by a startling public feud between he and Clayster.

Meanwhile, Apathy will also get a chance at vengeance against the Team Envy squad that dropped him, against some of the very teammates he won last season's CWL Championship with as a member of EG.
