Rise Nation has bought out the contracts of Ulysses “Aqua” Silva, Brice “Faccento” Faccento and Tyler “FeLonY” Johnson from Elevate. The organization will also be keeping Daniel “Loony” Loza to round out the roster.
Yesterday, Aqua tweeted that these four players would be teaming together. At the time, however, it appeared that they would be playing under the Elevate banner. The deal was not set in stone, as mentioned by an Elevate representative in the article linked above, but the organization was confident that things would go through.
This roster is likely favored to be one of the best teams going into Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, as Rise and Elevate were consistently two of the best teams during Black Ops III. However, this early praise is all just speculation, since no one has any experience playing Infinite Warfare on LAN yet.
Catch the new Rise Nation at MLG Vegas, the first LAN event for Infinite Warfare, taking place Dec. 16-18.
