As we draw nearer to the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League, more teams are announcing personnel moves. The most recent of these comes from the Atlanta FaZe, who have revealed their two substitutes for the season. While the organization could add one or two more, they’ll likely stick to the two they have here. Teams probably want to see how the roster performs initially before committing so much money to it. If the Atlanta FaZe performs well, there’s not as much need for more substitutes.

Atlanta FaZe add two more players

In an announcement on Twitter, the Atlanta FaZe revealed their substitutes for 2020. One is a very familiar face to FaZe fans, while the other is a fairly popular personality.

Thomas “GRVTY” Malin was on the FaZe Black roster this past season in Black Ops 4. He performed fairly well given the fact that he was considered an amateur before the season began. While his teammates on the FC Black team went on to bigger and better things, GRVTY joined the Sage Esports roster, placing 17-24 at CWL Championships 2019.

GTVTY is a solid all-around player but still needs time to develop before landing a starting spot on a CDL roster. Being around such a talented Atlanta FaZe roster should benefit him greatly.

As for the other substitute, Juan “JurNiii” Antonio González has been on the famed Team Heretics roster for nearly his entire career. Heretics turned some heads this past season in Black Ops 4, and JurNiii was one of the main reasons for that.

The Spanish player has had some fairly decent success over his career, so it’s surprising he couldn’t land a starting spot. However, he’s a great player and could easily sub in if an Atlanta FaZe player is having a rough stretch.

So, the current Atlanta FaZe roster is as follows:

  • Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris
  • Chris “Simp” Lehr
  • McArthur “Cellium” Jovel
  • Michael “MajorManiak” Szymaniak
  • Preston “Priestahh” Greiner
  • Thomas “GRVTY” Malin (Sub)
  • Juan “JurNiii” Antonio González (Sub)
  • James “Crowder” Crowder (Head Coach)
