The LA Guerrillas have added to their 2021 roster as of Tuesday, signing Kris “Spart” Cervantez as a substitute player. Spart has been tearing up the CDL Challengers scene for over a year after being released from the Guerrillas following the 2020 season. Spart played with LA for most of the 2020 season, where he bounced between the starting roster and Challengers. He now gets another chance on LA, though he’s not currently on the starting roster.

“Just want to thank @Bevils and the rest of the staff on LAG for bringing me back home,” Spart tweeted. “Extremely grateful.”

Spart joins LA Guerrillas for a second stint

Spart spent the entirety of the Black Ops Cold War season competing in Challengers. He started the year on the NYSL Academy team but ended up teaming with other amateurs to win the 2021 CDL Challengers Championship. Spart was widely considered to be one of the best Challenger players in Cold War.

However, when rostermania started for the 2022 season, Spart seemingly got no calls to be a starter. This led to him forming a Challengers team with his championship roster from Cold War, including Byron “Vera” Prolute and Mohak “MoahK” Kumar. Christian “Yeez” Faircloth, a substitute for the Florida Mutineers, is also currently teaming with Spart on their “We Are Trying Now” Challengers roster. The roster recently took home first place in the second Challengers Cup.

Spart’s path to being promoted to a starter on the LA Guerrillas is difficult. LA has already signed four high-profile free agents for the 2022 season. The roster is headlined by Cuyler “Huke” Garland and Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat. For Spart to become a starter, it’s likely LAG would need to start performing poorly with the current roster.

For now, Spart can continue to compete in Challengers with his team. However, he would be forced to leave the team if LAG decides to promote him to a starting position.
