Zer0 shuts down speculation of Red Reserve roster change after social media rumors

CoD Pro Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris has had to shut down rumors of a potential roster change at Red Reserve, after Twitter users began speculating that a change was imminent.

Red Reserve disappointed at the first event of the Black Ops 4 season, failing to place high enough to automatically qualify for the CWL Pro League.

However, their top 12 placing was enough to secure them a spot at the Pro League Qualifier, taking place on January 16 – 20, where they will have their last chance to get a Pro League spot.

Teams are permitted to change up to two players ahead of the LAN qualifier, and some top teams including FaZe Clan and G2 Esports have already taken advantage of this option, after similarly disappointing Vegas performances.

Some fans began speculating that Red Reserve would be the next top team to make a change, after three of the players removed all Red Reserve branding from their Twitter profiles.

Zer0, Ben ‘Bance’ Bance and Rhys ‘Rated’ Price all changed their Twitter headers and profile image to completely blank, and no longer include ‘Red Reserve’ in their bios – but Zer0 has shut down any speculation of a roster change.

Another user then suggested that it could be a ‘rebrand’ of Red Reserve, but again, Zer0 dismissed this, stating plainly “it’s not.”

So, it seems as though for now, the three players have simply decided that having all black headers and profile images is just the way they like it, and has no deeper meaning in regards to their profession.

The two other players on the roster, Joseph ‘Joee’ Pinnington and Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall both retain their header and profile images, and include ‘Red Reserve’ in their bio.

The team were indeed practicing together on December 29, with only a matter of weeks left to prepare before the most important qualifier of the season.
