Luminosity Gaming, a multi-game eSports organization based in North America, has announced today that they have made multiple changes to their Call of Duty lineup.

The first change comes in the form of Tyler “TeePee” Polchow, who was traded from Team EnVyUs for Johnathan “John” Perez and is once again leaving long-time teammate Patrick “ACHES” Price behind. TeePee first hit the Call of Duty scene in 2010 when he joined LeveraGe. He later went on to play for teams like compLexity Gaming, Evil Geniuses, and Optic Nation.

Luminosity also was forced to see Mike “SpaceLy” Schmale take his leave from the team to explore his options with Dream Team, only to come back days later and rejoin as a substitute. Without going into detail the team simply described it as “A bizarre turn of events.”

They also signed Jeremy “StuDyy” Astacio. Studyy, who says video games are largely why he kept his nose out of trouble, first joined the Call of Duty eSports scene with IcoNs. He later would go on to bounce around between dozens of teams, including Team EnVyUs, Noble eSports, FaZe Black, and most recently Team Liquid.

The roster shuffle is the direct result of what the organization says was a “Change of heart,” in multiple players:

“Our team enjoyed success offline as well during the season, battling through the bracket at the UMG South Carolina $100K tournament. We made the grand finals, against Rise Nation and fell just short. Hungry for the Championship the team was disappointed but ultimately proud.

Heading into Season 2 of CWL, the team was motivated and planned to stick together and grow on our success in Season 1. Unfortunately, some members of the team had a change of heart and ultimately changes ensued.”

The new lineup will debut tonight against FaZe Clan at 7:00 PM EST.
