- TSM Picks Up CoD Team!
We would like to announce that we have acquired the now ex-Rush Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 lineup to represent Team Solomid in the 2016 CoD: World League. The roster is as follows:
Cole “ColeChan” Chancey
Jonathan “Pacman” Tucker
Jordan “ProoFy” Cannon
Jamal “Whea7s” Lee
To those new to Call of Duty, Pacman and ProoFy are long time veterans of the CoD scene, having played professionally for the last several years. Whea7s and ColeChan are both relatively new to the scene, with Whea7s playing in the last couple of years, and ColeChan making his pro-play debut in the last few months. We plan on shooting video content of them to document their journey through the Call of Duty: World League.
Our new line-up is currently 4-4 in the Call of Duty: World League, and their very first match under the TSM banner will be against FaZe on Tuesday. Their first offline event will be at UMG South Carolina next weekend. We hope for our fans to join us in welcoming them to the TSM family at these matches.
“We’re extremely pleased to be working with the new roster. Everyone is super motivated and we have high hopes for the coming year. Our expansion into Call of Duty is very exciting for the organization as a whole, and we hope to make a lasting mark in the CoD esports community.” – Andy ‘Reginald’ Dinh
