After a third place finish at UMG Orlando and Call of Duty World Championships on the horizon, Denial eSports have completed a blockbuster trade with Team EnvyUs to trade Zooma and Saints in exchange for James “Clayster” Eubanks and Jordan “JKap” Kaplan.
In preparation for assembling a quality team for CoD Champs, this roster move may be extremely advantageous for the Wolf Pack. Both Clayster and JKap have competed on the big stage before, and both have been successful in their attempts to be successful at the elusive Call of Duty World Championships.
Clayster, an eight-time CoD champion, is one of the most successful and consistent players in competitive Call of Duty. Clayster is also known for playing his best when pitted against the best competition. When competing with OpTic Gaming in Call of Duty Championships 2014, Clayster led the squad to a third place finish to go along with a $120,000 prize. In addition to an impressive finish at the World Championships, just three months later Clayster claimed the first gold medal at the MLG X Games Invitational with OpTic Gaming. These impressive performances at the two most important tournaments of his career prove that Clayster enjoys the big stage and will be looking forward to competing at CoD Champs again this year with the Wolf Pack.
JKap is another multiple-time CoD Champion that brings extensive experience and skill to the Wolf Pack. A sixth-place finish and a $50,000 prize at last year’s CoD Champs with FaZe was impressive, but not quite as impressive as JKap’s performance at CoD Champs in 2013. At the peak of Black Ops 2, JKap competed with Team EnvyUs and led the squad to a second-place finish to take home $200,000 as a team, falling just short to Impact in the Grand Finals. JKap is another player, in addition to Clayster, that has experience on the big stage and has the ability to take over a particular map and win the game single-handedly.
With such an exciting opportunity to bring in two of the most celebrated players in competitive Call of Duty history in wake of the biggest tournament of the year, it was the right move for Denial. With the new roster of Clayster, JKap, Attach, and Replays set, the Wolf Pack will now have their minds set on preparing and ultimately prevailing at Call of Duty Championships.
