Str8 Rippin set to return to Call of Duty with SpaceLy’s team
According to sources close to Rush B Media, Str8 rippin; the former Call of Duty esport organisation are set to return to the scene with SpaceLy’s team ‘Orgless’. Their journey under the organisation will begin with the upcoming CWL Las Vegas from the 7th-9th. However, it's also worth mentioning that this team is interested in representing an organisation only for CWL Vegas and are looking to weigh up their options in the future according to a tweet by SpaceLy here. Therefore, Str8 Rippin could simply be the organisation representing SpaceLy’s team for the one event.
The organisation was prevalent in the Infinite Warfare season and has produced numerous talented players such as OpTic Gaming’s “Dashy” and Splyce’s “Temp”. Str8 Rippin placed relatively well across the one season they participated in, qualifying for the 2017 Call of Duty Championships through the NA Last Chance qualifier with the roster of “StuDyy”, “Ricky”, “Dashy” and, “Temp”. They then went on to place a respected Top 16 at the 2017 CoD Champs.
Vitality were also rumored to be interested in the team, however this move could have broke down because of upcoming franchising next year.
Therefore, Str8 Rippin for the Call of Duty season will be:
Michael "SpaceLy" Schmale
Colt "Havok" McLendon
Michael "MajorManiak" Szymaniak
Chance "Maux" Moncivaez
Jared "Nagafen" Harrel
The team is extremely well rounded and have placed incredibly high in the most recent 2Ks; coming Top 8 twice, 2nd, and 1st respectively. They have also got a play-in spot due to their pro points and are set to play Mindfreak in the first round, hopefully to progress into Pool-Play.
