The first tournament of the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 season is now only a couple of days away. It has been a long wait for the whole community, fans and pro players. On Dec. 6 CWL Las Vegas will begin.

A few top professional teams have been competing during online 2Ks without an organization to represent. However, over the past and final week before the season’s first LAN event. Four organizations have made the leap.

Lightning Pandas

Talented European roster involving; Dylan ‘MadCat’ Daly, David ‘Dqvee’ Davis, Joshua-Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard, Adam ‘Peatie’ Peate and Alex ‘Alexx’ Carpenter have been picked up by Lightning Pandas. No strangers to the competitive scene, Lightning Pandas were a consistent organization during the WWII season. At last season’s World Championships, they placed top 12.

It was only a matter of time before an origination would pick up this European roster. It includes veteran pros and after a successful season with UNILAD in WWII, Alexx will want to continue his impressive form at Vegas.

Raised By Kings

Unlike Lightning Pandas above, Raised By Kings are new to the Call of Duty competitive scene. Ready for Black Ops 4 and CWL Vegas, they have acquired the following roster, one that includes a legendary veteran. Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss, Eric ‘TwiZz’ Servello, Joey ‘SupremeAgility’ Torres, Teegan ‘TcM’ McCarthy and Tyree ‘Legal’ Glover.

Former Call of Duty World Champion KiLLa and his squad have been performing consistently well in the North American 2Ks leading up to Vegas, consistently placing top 16. Heading into the weekend and the Open Bracket, Raised By Kings will be hopeful that they can cause an upset.

Pittsburgh Knights

Another organization stepping into the competitive Call of Duty scene for Black Ops 4 are the Pittsburgh Knights. Their roster, however, are not new to the scene. Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte, Dylan ‘Theory’ McGee, Andres ‘Lacefield’ Lacefield, Casey ‘Pandur’ Romano and Adam ‘GodRx’ Brown have been competing in Call of Duty for a good time and successfully.

Theory, has had the most recent success in Call of Duty competitive, winning the first couple of events during last year’s WWII season.

Pittsburgh Knights are one of the 8 teams who will begin in the Vegas Play in tournament. Parasite and co. are one of the favorites to succeed and make it through to the pools against Top NA and European opposition.

Call of Duty return for Str8 Rippin

Competing in 3 Infinite Warfare events during 2017, Str8 Rippin are back to compete at CWL Vegas. Competing for the organization are a squad who have performed brilliantly in the North American 2Ks, consistently placing top 8 and taking 1st once. Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale, Michael ‘MajorManiak’ Szymaniak, Jared ‘Nagafen’ Harrell, Colt ‘Havok’ McLendon and Chance ‘Maux’ Moncivaez.

SpaceLy and co. aren’t strangers, Maux, MajorManiak and SpaceLy teamed together for last year’s WWII World Championships and placed top 8. With the additions of Havok and Nagafen, Str8 Rippin will be hoping to see a top finish at Vegas. Continuing their impressive form. Like Pittsburgh Kights, Str8 Rippin will be competing in the Vegas Play In, similarly hoping to make it into one of the pool play spots.

Born in Birmingham, UK, I have always had a passion for sports, especially football (soccer); following Birmingham City Football Club across the country and around Europe from a very young age. Acquiring Call of Duty 4 at age 12 (thanks to my older brother) I began to play the game religiously, becoming a pro was never really an option (due to poor gun skill!) but I fell in love with the Call of Duty competitive scene, its community and esports because of it. Seeing esports grow every day is incredibly exciting and I look forward to being a part of it, especially through Call of Duty where there is never a dull moment competitively. You’ll never see me on Main Stage turning on people but I’ll definitely be watching, writing and providing updates on the pros that do. You can contact me through email or Twitter.
