Epsilon eSports have announced the brand new lineup for their Call of Duty roster, along with their intentions to compete in North America this year.
The lineup consists of Epsilon veteran Callum ‘Swanny’ Swan, Remington ‘Remy’ Ihringer, Jared ‘Nagafen’ Harrell and Matt ‘Royalty’ Faithfull. Swan, a veteran of the European scene and a fixture of Epsilon lineups, will provide the experience and calming influence to a side filled with breakout stars and hungry newcomers.
Remy and Nagafen are no strangers to each other, or Epsilon fans. The two came to prominence earlier this year as members of Team Revenge, culminating in a second place finish at the Call of Duty Championships in March.
Unfortunately, not long after Ihringer and Harrell would bounce around teams after Team Revenge parted ways, with Ihringer playing with Epsilon at the Gfinity Spring Masters, while Harrell played with Prophecy. Now, they have reunited once again, under the Epsilon banner, and will be hoping to renew the successful partnership they had while under Team Revenge.
Joining these three is Royalty, a player relatively unknown in the professional scene. However, Royalty has been making a name for himself this year, with consistent Top 24 placings at several LAN events. Royalty is a very highly rated prospect, and the move to Epsilon will allow him to showcase his talent on the biggest stage.
This new Epsilon lineup has their sights set on competing in North America this year, and will contend at the Season 3 Relegation Tournament in June, hoping to secure a place in the third season of the MLG Advanced Warfare Pro League.
Although at this moment in time there are no official mentions of a team house, Epsilon have confirmed that Swanny will be moving to the US to compete on a consistent basis. Epsilon are now the second European eSports organisation to seek a future in the North American Call of Duty scene, following TCM’s departure earlier this season.
While the newly formed international roster already looks threatening on paper, they will face tough competition for one of the highly sought after league spots, with OpTic Nation, Orbit, Prophecy, JusTus, Enigma6 and vVv all vying for a place in next year’s competition.
