When the London Royal Ravens were announced to the Call of Duty esports world, there seemed to be an instant fit for the new team. Twins, Wuskin and Skrpaz were destined to play with each other once again after spending a whole 2019 season battling against each other. Bradley “Wuskin” Marshall played for Team Reciprocity last season. He had a decent showing throughout the regular season, and have many shining moments throughout the majors in the year. Some tournaments even had Reciprocity as the favorites, especially after the signing of Dylan, who also joined the London Royal Ravens. Despite Reciprocity not winning any majors, Wuskin has made his mark as being one of the best in CoD esports.
The same can be said about his twin brother, Matthew “Skrapz” Marshall, who played with Red Reserve at the start of the season, and then switched over to FaZe Clan to finish things off. Skrapz was always considered the best player for Red Reserve, and when he switched to FaZe Clan he was right up there with the likes of ZooMaa. Skrapz was a dangerous player, and if you gave him any room he would capitalize. As his brother, Skrapz didn’t win any majors through the entire 2019 season, but he definitely made a solid name for himself. With both the brothers back on the same team, the London Royal Ravens are already looking solid.
Another great addition to the London team would be Wuskin’s teammate at Reciprocity, Thomas “Dylan” Henderson. Dylan has caught the eye of many CoD esports panelists, including NAMELESS, PacmanJT and Jeremy Astacio. He also had some unbelievable showings and was even comparable to OpTic Dashy at times with his sniping skills. Dylan was also nominated as Esports Console Rookie of the Year back in November of last year. The Royal Ravens also made a great signing for Jordan “Jurd” Crowley, a heavyweight in the Call of Duty world who has an impressive resume and is the leader on the London Royal Ravens. Jurd is a veteran who has had an impressive run in last seasons Call of Duty World league while playing for Splyce. The team was considered heavy favorites for many of the early majors, however, the team wasn’t able to win any titles. Splyce did place 2nd at CWL Fort worth and 3rd at CWL Vegas which is a great accomplishment in itself.
Jurd is joined by another veteran, Rhys “Rated” Price, who has been in Call of Duty esports for a long time. He has a bumpy road in 2019, playing for the struggling Denial Esports, to moving to Units, a temporary CoD team in the league. However, Rated finished 5th with his team at the CWL Championships and beat out teams like Team Reciprocity, Evil Geniuses, Luminosity Gaming and FaZe Clan. The starting roster is also accompanied by two solid substitutes: Dylan “Madcat” Daly (ex Units / Fuego Gaming) and Sean “Seany” O’ Connor (ex- Celtic FC Esports).
UK fans will be very pleased with this line that consists of veterans and young guns ready to make their mark with the London Royal Ravens.
