BitterSweet has been the only team that secured their place in the Call of Duty World League without the organization. However, that changed last night when the team announced that they’d be playing for Ghost Gaming from now on. The Call of Duty community was very surprised with the news about Ghost Gaming acquiring the BitterSweet team. Rarely anyone expected this organization to enter Call of Duty competitions.
In the last couple of weeks, there were many rumors about certain organizations returning or making their first appearance in the Call of Duty scene by acquiring the BitterSweet team. It is just another step that this organization is making in an effort to increase their presence in the world of eSports. It is safe to assume it will not be the last one.
Before joining Ghost Gaming, Andres Lacefield, Chance ‘Maux’ Moncivaez, Devi ‘LlamaGod’ Tran, as well as Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale have been playing for BitterSweet. Before they actually became BitterSweet and before competing individually, these players were members of Supreme Team. However, things did not work out for this organization and they decided to leave.
Even before signing with Ghost Gaming, this lineup has shown a lot of potential in their matches. Even though up to now they haven’t had any significant results that might change very soon. The new organization will be making its debut in the upcoming Call of Duty competitions.
BitterSweet has been the biggest surprise of the CWL Relegation Tournament that was played on June 15 to determine the remaining four participants of the Season Two of CWL Global Pro League. At the time of the tournament, it was tough to find a person who thought that they might actually secure a spot in that competition.
However, being an underdog is sometimes a good thing as the expectations and the pressure are not that high as with some other teams. BitterSweet used that fact and secured their spot in one of the biggest Call of Duty competitions in the world. After that, they went on to secure their spot in the CWL Anaheim Open as well.
During the group stage of the CWL Anaheim, BitterSweet dominated in all matches, and when the group stage ended, they were one of the few teams that finished the first stage of the competition without a single defeat. However, the playoffs have become too much to handle for this team, and in the end, they finished the tournament in the top 12.
The players from this team have significant experience in Call of Duty competitions. However, Lacefield is the only player who has actually participated in the CWL Global Pro League already. During the Season One of this competition, he played for Cloud9 but he, as well as the remaining players from Cloud9, did not have a lot of success. In fact, that was one of their worst seasons in CWL Global Pro League.
Ghost Gaming will be making their debut in the CWL Pro League on July 7th when the Group Blue of the competition will be playing its matches. Ghost Gaming will be facing Enigma6, Elevate, and FaZe Clan for the first two places in the group.
