Comments

  • Overall: Optic Gaming bringing back 3 players of the old dynasty has excited many of the Green Wall faithful. The addition of new talent shows the ambition from the organization to get back to the top. Many see this roster as one of the rosters to beat heading into Black Ops 4.TJHaly and Karma will be the question marks for this team. Can TJHaly be the SnD presence that Optic need? What role will Karma play in this new look Optic Gaming?
  • Positive Rating: Optic Gaming gets a 4 star rating for their transfer business heading into the CWL 2019 season. They acquired top prospects Dashy and TJhaly while bringing back Karma into the line-up. TJhaly is an interesting pickup as he had an amazing start to the World War II season, yet dropped off towards the end. He was better known for his strong SnD performances which is something Optic heavily lacked the previous season. Dashy is one of the best pickups available for the main AR position and they did great by snatching him up at the earliest opportunity. Looking like a strong year for the Green Wall, only time will tell if this roster glues correctly.
  • Negative Rating: Optic Gaming released Octane and Methodz from the lineup after the organizations worst ever placing at COD Champs in World War II. Octane was snatched up by 100 Thieves while Methodz returned to Faze. These two lineups have definitely improved thanks to Optic's willingness to sell their players to direct rivals. Karma's role for Optic is unclear and this could lead to role issues down the road. Karma has mentioned being the main AR for a team, but Crimsix and Dashy would cover these roles.

Comments

  • Overall: EUnited's roster is one that had been rumored for some time, but wasn't officially announced till a day before the release of Black Ops 4. This roster has gathered a lot of attention and with it, high expectations. JKap and Clayster reunited since their time in Denial, the twins remaining on the team and bringing the young talent aBezy from Enigma 6 has made this roster one of the top rosters in the CWL. The biggest concern for eUnited will be the consistent slaying. Can new-boys JKap and aBezy help eUnited keep up with the slaying from other top rosters?
  • Positive Rating: Eunited seem to have fixed all their problems with the addition of aBezy and JKap. A strong support player in JKap alongside another aggressive SMG to keep pace with Prestinni. JKap brings strong leadership to go alongside Clayster and stealing him away from Luminosity and 100 Thieves allows Eunited to have two of the top in-game leaders throughout Call of Duty who have previously worked together. This partnership will be scary if they can get the best out of the twins and aBezy. Just taking JKap from LG and 100T is a tactical victory for this squad.
  • Negative Rating: Slaying is a big concern for this squad. JKap is not known as a strong slayer, and aBezy was more known for his SnD prowess rather than his respawn performances. If they can't keep up with other top teams slaying, they will struggle to get a foothold of many matches against top opposition.

Comments

  • Overall: Nadeshot finally returns to Call of Duty for Black Ops 4 and he returns with the fire of becoming the best team in the game. On paper this is definitely the team to beat for the CWL Las Vegas 2019. Kenny and Fero, 2 rookies that became the best SMG player and best SnD player of the WWII season respectively. Octane and SlasheR, two of the top 3 AR players over the past 3 years and Enable who becomes the In-game Leader of the team. If Octane and Slasher can find their places on this team, their Respawn and SnD should both be solid. JKap was a rumored target for 100T as he is known to get the best out of his players, but this responsibility is placed on Enable.
  • Positive Rating: 100 Thieves did a fantastic job creating a roster for the Black Ops 4 season. They quickly signed the best SMG of World War II in Kenny and who many considered to be the best SnD player of the previous season in Fero. After this, they added two of the top 3 ARs for the last few titles, including World War II in Octane and Slasher. Finally, they added Enable who was the vocal leader and in-game leader for TK.
  • Negative Rating: It was clear 100T wanted JKap and not Enable to be the team's IGL. JKap is a proven in-game leader throughout his career while Enable has struggled previously. Faze and Evil Geniuses are two examples of problems with the IGL position. This squad depends on Enable keeping hold of the team, and creating a solid structure with his all-star team.

Comments

  • Overall: Faze clan has fixed their consistent role issues by bringing Methodz into the team. Attach, Replays and Priestahh all had role swaps throughout the WWII season leading to a very inconsistent year. Some great placements such as winning Pro-League Stage 1, mixed in with some Top-12s summed up their year. Methodz had a stand-out year in World War II, but things didn't seem to go his way once he left Rise Nation. Now back with Replays at Faze, he will look to have a stronger year in Black Ops 4.
  • Positive Rating: Faze directly tackled their main issue from World War II which was their dedicated main AR. This pickup makes complete sense and definitely makes the team a more structured lineup.
  • Negative Rating: Faze had a very inconsistent World War II season with this lineup. Many role issues, role swaps, and the rumored Zooma trade all affected this roster's consistency throughout the season. Methodz addition may fix one of the role issues, but if he begins to struggle will role swaps begin once again? This pickup won't change this team's consistency for the whole season. They needed another change to be a more consistent contender, but this doesn't take away from their chances at strong showings.

Comments

  • Overall: One of the international squads created for the Black Ops 4 season, Splyce brings back Jurd and adds North American talent around him. This roster has been received with mixed feelings by the community and that includes this rating. Accuracy, Loony and Temp have proven to be strong personalities throughout their time in the CWL and that may not change while in this roster. A very talented line-up on paper, this roster came as a surprise to many. Their upset potential is sky high with some claiming this roster to be one of the top rosters heading into Black Ops 4. How will these personalities mix? Only time will tell...
  • Positive Rating: This lineup has one of the highest upset potentials from all lineups that have been announced. A strong leader in Loony, strong ARs in Aqua and Accuracy, and a talented SMG duo in Jurd and Temp. Roles mix in very well, with every player pulling their weight.
  • Negative Rating: Personalities clashing is one of the big problems for this roster. How will they handle tough times? Besides this, the SMG presence may be lacking compared to other top teams.

Comments

  • Overall: The top all-European roster for the 2019 season, Red Reserve bring back their four players from the WWII season and add Bance to the roster. Bance did not have a great 2018 season, both individually and with the Splyce roster. This is his opportunity to bounce back and prove he is still one of the top players in Europe. This squad is well balanced, and Bance's addition provides extra SMG pressure which is what they sometimes lacked in respawn. Joee will continue to be this team's x-factor, with a high-risk/high-reward playstyle.
  • Positive Rating: Red Reserve brings Bance into the best European Lineup of World War II. This lineup caused damaged throughout the whole season, but was never able to make the final step. The addition of Bance brings stronger SMG presence into the team.
  • Negative Rating: What role will Joee have for the Black Ops 4 season? He could not keep up with SMGs throughout the year, and Zer0 should be the secondary AR for this team. Bance also struggled throughout the whole season from Splyce, will he be able to bounce back after a disappointing year?

Comments

  • Overall: The 2018 COD Champs move from Evil Geniuses to Team Envy and join up with Huke for the Black Ops 4 season. This roster was criticized for inconsistency during the latter part of the World War II season, but adding Huke into the line-up should definitely fix several of the team's problems. If they can fix their inconsistencies, they should be able to challenge throughout the season.
  • Positive Rating: Huke joins up with Apathy as the SMG duo and this is a scary team to go up against for any SMG duo around the league. Assault has proven to be a top AR while Aches and Silly provide support to these players. Envy snatching the defending COD Champs is quite a nice bit of business.
  • Negative Rating: The roster proved to be heavily inconsistent since it was formed. Second at Seattle, Top 16 at Anaheim, missing out of Stage 2 Playoffs, then winning Champs. It was a crazy run for the EG four. Huke had a rough start to the season with Slasher in the team, but once he was traded out, his individual performances began to improve. They could have improved in some positions, but decided to remain with the four champions.

Comments

  • Overall: A very unexpected team, Evil Geniuses returns for Black Ops 4 with a team of players who had a disappointing year. This squad on paper seems like a solid one as they united different roles and play-styles, but as other community members have said before, there seems to be a lack of dedicated ARs in this team. Roles may be an issue for this new look EG, and only time will tell if this 5 players looking for a fresh start will have a successful CWL 2019.
  • Positive Rating: Picking up Saints was a huge achievement for the organization and pairing him up with Felony will make for a strong SMG duo. This squad can take advantage of their aggressive lineup to up the pace against any opponent.
  • Negative Rating: Losing the previous COD Champs squad was always going to hurt your rating on any RosterMania rating, but on top of that, it seems that this was a rushed lineup. By no means a pushover, the lineup is stacked with aggressive SMG talent. This could benefit in the long run, but for now, it seems an unnecessary risk. Goonjar is the only dedicated AR in the team and they could have tried to pick up a more consistent slayer for this position. It is unclear what roles Lacefield and Royalty will do in this lineup. Their pacing may be way off until they can figure things out.

Comments

  • Overall: A European and APAC mix, Team Reciprocity enters the Black Ops 4 season with a very exciting line-up. Tommey is a strong in-game leader that gets the best out of his players and he is definitely the guy to get the best out of Denz. This line-up on paper seems strongly AR heavy, and roles may be a big issue for them moving forward. It is unclear on how the roles will be distributed for Team Reciprocity, but Tommey is a strong candidate to make a team like this work.
  • Positive Rating: The pickup of Denz, alonside a strong in-game leader in Tommey and the Unilad core makes this team a very exciting prospect. Team Reciprocity's entry into Call of Duty is marked with one of the first international teams for the Black Ops 4 season and by having the first Aussie jump from APAC for the CWL 2019 season. The team signed some of the best international talent available during this off-season, and Team Reciprocity have done a great job in setting the team up by providing them with essentials such as a North American stay in Las Vegas. Denz has proved to be a top player for several years now, and this opportunity under Team Reciprocity will be one he will flourish in.
  • Negative Rating: The team is extremely AR heavy and pacing will be way off while they get things together. The only aggresive Sub in this team is Zed with the rest having played predominantly Flex or AR throughout World War II. It was surprising to me that they did not bring Alexx instead of Seany from Unilad, but that could have been down to contracts or negotiations. The team doesn't seem correctly set up for the future, unless they get a lucky draw for a heavy AR meta. Even though the team is exciting, they didn't exactly succeed in the market.

  • Overall: The APAC giants Mindfreak come into the Black Ops 4 season with the core of Fighta, Shockz and BuZZO, alongside a returning figure in Excite and an APAC young gun in Louqa. Losing Denz to Team Reciprocity is a tough loss, but can the top APAC team power their way on the international stage?
  • Positive Rating: Mindfreak was able to quickly resign most of their World War II team during the offseason. Holding on to these assets instead of selling them forward was absolutely necessary for any type of international success. Excite returns to the roster with a point to prove, while Louqa enters the APAC scene as the young gun ready to prove himself at an international stage.
  • Negative Rating: Losing Denz really hurts this team. He was by far their most consistent player, although not as explosive as Shockz and Fighta. Excite returns to this roster after being dropped for Denz. He was dropped for attitude problems rather than skill so it will all depend on how he continues to develop. Louqa is still unproven so it is a risk putting him on the biggest APAC organization, but we have seen several organizations take risks with new players. This team still lacks the talent to compete internationally. It will be plagued by the same problems that their previous rosters had such as lack of a strong AR and lack of consistency. It seems that they just made a side-step or a step-back with this new roster.

  • Overall: Luminosity have gone out and stacked their team with top talent. A "big" 3 has been formed with John, Gunless and Formal while the supporting elements are brought by Slacked and Classic. The team unites Formal and Gunless for the highly anticipated reunion, while also reuniting Slacked and Classic. The team has one of the top, if not the top skill ceiling in the league, but will they be able to glue it together?
  • Positive Rating: Luminosity Gaming have signed what many considered the best player in World War II from Rise Nation in Gunless. They also managed to keep a hold of both John (one of the top SMGs for the past several years) and Formal (top 3 AR for the past several years excluding World War II). With this trio of stars, not many teams manage to stack up player for player skill wise. Slacked and Classic provide the supporting roles for these players, but neither is a pushover either. Slacked has consistently proven that his consistency is key for any team, while Classic's explosiveness helps him take over games.
  • Negative Rating: Losing JKap could be costly as this team still lacks a dedicated in-game leader. A team of stars, but no clear direction or system. Luminosity may crack under pressure if no one steps up. The team's individualistic talent is very impressive, but a team that runs only on individualistic talent can get so far.
