UK Call of Duty powerhouse Red Reserve have finalised their roster ahead of the second stage of the CWL Pro League.
Since releasing Joshua-Lee “Joshh” Sheppard after a top eight placement at CWL Seattle, the team have been searching for a replacement.
After several weeks of negotiation, Red Reserve were able to strike a deal with Unilad, for the acquisition of hot prospect Matthew “Skrapz” Marshall.
We’re excited to welcome @SkrapzG as our new fourth,
Skrapz joins fellow Red Reserve CoD teammates Trei “Zer0” Morris, Rhys “Rated” Price and Joe “Joee” Pinnington.
A LONG TIME COMING
The move has been a long time coming. Skrapz has been a standout player on a struggling Unilad team, whereas internal issues look to be the cause for Joshh leaving Red Reserve.
This isn’t the first time that internal issues have caused a change within the European scene. At the 2016 world championship, Splyce immediately made a roster change in the off-season, despite finishing second at the event.
WHERE NEXT FOR JOSH?
As a staple of the UK CoD scene, Joshh has been competing at the highest level for a number of years. It has been rumoured that he will be joining Splyce after they made the decision to part ways with Tom “Tommey” Trewren following a poor showing at CWL Seattle.
The possible addition of Joshh to Splyce certainly has the potential to rejuvenate some of Europe’s top players.
We would like to thank @BsportJoshh for everything he has done for us this year.
CHANGE IS GOOD
The changes across the UK scene all look to be positive steps for teams that are intent on returning to the top level of Call of Duty.
The first chance of seeing Red Reserve in action will be the second stage of the CWL pro league, which begins on June 15th.
