With the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 competitive season firmly in the rearview mirror, players and teams are looking to build the best rosters possible for the new franchised Call of Duty League.
We’ve already seen hints at the break-up of OpTic’s big three, the possible reunion of Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, as well as Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson announcing his departure from eUnited. Yet, one of the biggest changes to date could very well come from FaZe and ZooMaa, who appear to be going their separate ways.
During his September 12 stream, the FaZe Clan pro had been trying out the Modern Warfare beta alongside teammate Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris and former Evil Geniuses player Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi, when a fan asked him if FaZe were getting a spot in franchising.
ZooMaa quickly fired back: “I don’t know, I’ve been wondering the same thing for five months." Zer0 himself had to inject with a quick “six,” correcting the longtime member on his timekeeping, prompting ZooMaa to open up even further. He added: “And if they got a spot, I most likely won’t be on it.”
While the 24-year-old didn’t expand any further, him not being on a FaZe Clan roster would certainly be a huge shift in the scene.
Paparatto has been with FaZe since 2015, and even though they didn’t qualify for Black Ops 4’s Pro League off the bat, he remained out of competition - bar a substitute appearance for OpTic Gaming - until they were able to claim a spot in late April.
Just exactly what the future holds for ZooMaa and FaZe Clan moving forward remains to be seen, but it appears that both parties are headed for a fresh start.
