eUnited Makes Major Call of Duty World League Roster Change

After a disappointing placement at CWL Fort Worth, eUnited has announced a major roster change for its Call of Duty World League team.

After a 2nd place finish at the first event of the Call of Duty World League (CWL) season for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in CWL Las Vegas and a strong showing at the beginning of the CWL Pro League, eUnited was looked upon as one of the top teams in professional Call of Duty. However, a disappointing 13th-16th place finish at CWL Forth Worth was enough to push eUnited to announce a major roster change on Tuesday, March 19th. 

Taking to its official Twitter account on March 19th, eUnited announced that young star Chris "Simp" Lehr would be moving into a role on the starting roster with veteran Jordan "JKap" Kaplan would be moving into the substitute spot on the eUnited CWL roster. 

With JKap having struggled to find his footing during CWL Fort Worth and Simp putting together an impressive performance in the open bracket tournament of the event as a member of FaZe Clan Black, it looks as though eUnited is ready to see if the young talent will be able to help the team find success in its upcoming Pro League matches. 

Due to JKap being a talented veteran who has plenty of championship experience throughout his career, it would not be shocking to see another team look to add JKap to its roster in the next roster change period. However, JKap could perhaps find himself back on the starting roster for eUnited if Simp or another member does not perform well in the near future. 

Simp has long been seen as one of the most talented up-and-comers in the Call of Duty esports scene and had been a member of the eUnited Cadets program before turning 18 and becoming eligible to compete in official CWL events. Now, Simp will finally have the opportunity to show off his skills with the starting CWL roster of eUnited and prove that he deserves to be on the franchise's biggest competitive stage.
