In the first season of CWL (Call of Duty World League) Luminosity got off to a slow start, in which we found ourselves at the bottom of the standings after a several weeks of competition. Many factors contributed to the lackluster results, including connectivity issues, lack of efficient and consistent practice, bad luck, and failing to close out matches in hand. Our team came together and unanimously agreed that the results didn't match the potential of the roster at the time. To their credit, they buckled down and worked hard and fought their way into one if the final playoff positions.
Our team enjoyed success offline as well during the season, battling through the bracket at the UMG South Carolina $100K tournament. We made the grand finals, against Rise Nation and fell just short. Hungry for the Championship the team was disappointed but ultimately proud.
Heading into Season 2 of CWL, the team was motivated and planned to stick together and grow on our success in Season 1. Unfortunately, some members of the team had a change of heart and ultimately changes ensued. Effective immediately, we have traded John to Team EnvyUs in exchange for TeePee and a transfer fee. As well we have acquired StuDy from Team Liquid. In a bizarre turn of events, we had released SpaceLy so that he could pursue an offer from Dream Team, but he was subsequently released from the team at his request a few days later. He has since then decided to rejoin Luminosity as our substitute.
Moving forward our roster will be:
Chris "Replays" Crowder
Renato "Saints" Forza
Jeremy "StuDy" Astacio
Tyler "TeePee" Polchow
Mike "SpaceLy" Schmale (substitute)
Our first match is tonight against FaZe Clan at 6:00 PM CST, and then again tomorrow against Dream Team at 4:00 PM CST.
