eUnited is pleased to welcome the addition of Tyler “FeLo” Johnson to the eUnited Call of Duty team.
FeLo is a veteran of the competitive scene with top placements dating all the way back to 2014. During the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare season, FeLo claimed his first major championship during the 2017 CWL Las Vegas Open.
The biggest stage of them all has also been successful for the 20-year-old submachine gun slayer, having placed 3rd and 4th in the past two world championships respectively. FeLo will play alongside captain James “Clayster” Eubanks and the dynamic duo of Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson and Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson.
“I’m extremely excited to play with the squad,” FeLo said. “I’ve been competing against Clay for the last three years and he is one person that I’ve always respected and hoped to team with and it finally came to fruition. As far as Alec and Preston are concerned, they have insane talent and had an incredible breakout year (last season). I also feel like Preston and I play at a similar pace and it will overall improve the flow of the team.
“All in all, I’m excited that eUnited and the players are giving me this opportunity and I hope to make the most out of it.”
Co-General Manager Matthew Potthoff is excited for the future and hopes FeLo will reinvigorate the roster.
“He instinctually knows when to push out cuts and get map control for our assault rifle players,” Potthoff said. “On top of his pace, he has a vast knowledge of Search and Destroy and can continue to help improve our meta game of breakouts and situational strategies. I’m excited to have Tyler on board and see how he provides strengths to our teams’ attributes,” Potthoff said.
Moving forward, Justin “SiLLY” Fargo will no longer be a part of the Call of Duty roster for eUnited.
“I wish Justin the absolute best, he is a great person and has treated eUnited well,” Potthoff said. “Justin brought home our first major championship win in Atlanta, I will never forget that moment. He has played a vital part of our team's success over the past year and a half but unfortunately a change of scenery is needed for our roster to explore their full potential.”
“There is not one person to blame for our struggles as a team,” he added. “I am confident Justin will be a valuable asset to any organization he joins.”
The team will have a brief window to practice together as a full team before a trip to the Emerald City for the 2018 CWL Seattle Open on April 20-22.
