One of the top teams competing in this month’s CWL Pro League qualifier event has overhauled its roster.
Pittsburgh Knights has signed Richard “Ricky” Stacy and Renato “Saints” Forza to its Call of Duty roster, replacing Andres Lacefield and Dylan “Theory” McGee. Saints and Ricky join Christopher “Parasite” Duarte, Adam “GodRx” Brown, and Casey “Pandur” Romano on the Knights’ team.
Saints competed for Evil Geniuses at the CWL Las Vegas Open in December, where they finished top eight. Ricky’s team, G2 Esports, didn’t perform as well, earning a top 16 placing.
G2’s showing led to the organization making changes to the team, which included Ricky and Brice Faccento being replaced by Anthony “Methodz” Zinni and former Pittsburgh Knights player Andres Lacefield.
Both the Knights’ and G2’s new rosters will compete in the 28-team CWL Pro League qualifier later this month. The event will begin on Jan. 16, and it will determine the final 12 teams in the 2019 CWL Pro League.
