Last week, several high-profile roster changes made some noise in the North American competitive Call of Duty scene. Rise Nation, a solid roster throughout all of Black Ops III, choose to split up. Three of the former Rise players soon joined Luminosity Gaming, whose roster had disbanded as well. This made Luminosity the new home for Josiah “Slacked” Berry, Sam “Octane” Larew, and Nicholas “Classic” DiCostanzo and Renato “Saints” Forza.
Out on their own, Michael “SpaceLy” Schmale, Jeremy “StuDyy” Astacio, and Anthony “NAMELESS” Wheeler were looking for an organization to represent. Today, however, NAMELESS announced his new roster, with SpaceLy noticeably missing.

The new team is not currently under an organization, but joining NAMELESS and StuDyy are Colt “Havok” McLendon, who most recently played for compLexity Gaming, and Jared “Nagafen” Harrell, who is leaving Team Elevate.
This roster announcement shakes up the Call of Duty landscape, leaving several teams with currently unfilled (or unannounced) rosters.
Who will Elevate replace Nagafen with? What will compLexity do without Havok? Comment below or tell us on Twitter @GAMURScom.
