Following a very unsuccessful inaugural season, the Los Angeles Guerrillas have announced their 2021 roster, looking to have a better season next year
The Los Angeles Guerrillas finished rock bottom in the inaugural Call of Duty League season and struggled from the very first weekend. However, their new team for the 2021 season includes three of the previous four 4v4 World Champions. This means its almost certainly set up for success.
The Los Angeles Guerrillas starting lineup for the 2021 season will consist of Reece “Vivid” Drost, Bryan “Apathy” Zhelyazkov, Adam “Assault” Garcia and Justin “SiLLY” Fargo-Palmer. This is a very successful team. Apathy, Assault and SiLLY are the most current 4v4 World Champions winning in the 2018 World War 2 season under Evil Geniuses. They will be joined by a young gun in Vivid. He showed some quality during the 2020 season but struggled to perform consistently throughout the year.
The Guerrillas also announced an Academy team. Pending on league approval, it will be formed by Billy “MentaL” Putnam, Martin “Chino” Chino, Kaden “Exceed” Stockdale and Nero. MentaL is a player who announced his move to Call of Duty earlier in the year. He's coming over as a 22-time Gears of War champion. He has high expectations coming into this season, but he will be joined by an experienced competitor in Chino. Exceed, on the other hand, is competing for his second professional year and Nero is a rookie.
LAG had a very underwhelming first season. As such, they have heavily invested in the second, building a championship quality roster. While this doesn't always mean they'll be successful, LAG is looking like a strong competitor heading into the 2021 season.
