Cyclone revealed its first North American Call of Duty roster last month—but the team has already decided to make a roster change roughly 21 days later.
Anthony “DraMa” Padilla will replace Michael “Jsano” Najera on Cyclone’s roster for Call of Duty: WWII, the organization announced earlier today. DraMa will now compete alongside Jason “Prophet” Nicoletti, Ethan “FA5TBALLA” Wedgeworth, and Aaron “TuQuick” Chang at the start of the WWII season.
DraMa most recently played for 3sUP at the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship. 3sUP didn’t make it out of a difficult group, however, and left the $1.5 million tournament with a top 32 placing.
The 20-year-old slayer started to make a name for himself at the start of the Infinite Warfare season. DraMa earned consecutive top 12 placings at the CWL Las Vegas Open in December 2016 and the CWL Atlanta Open in February playing for the Gosu Crew.
He once again placed top 12 at the CWL Dallas Open in March, and Gosu Crew just barely missed out on qualifying for the first season of the CWL Global Pro League—Gosu lost to Evil Geniuses in the losers bracket match that determined the final spot in the pro league.
Call of Duty fans will be anxious to see if DraMa can replicate his success from the beginning of Infinite Warfare in a boots-on-the-ground game when the WWII season begins later this year.
