Paris Legion consists of players from Australia, US, England and France. The team consists of 7 players who will compete in the upcoming CDL season. Starting off are three players from Australia; Luke “Louqa” Rigas, Conrad “Shockz” Rymarek, and Denholm “Denz” Taylor. Louqa has been playing competitive Call of Duty since 2014 and has played on a variety of different teams including Mindfreak and Gen.G. Louqa was part of the successful Australian Call of Duty team “Mindfreak”. Mindfreak was one of the most successful teams last year that did not compete in the regular CWL season. The team would play at open pools at every major tournament and have captured 1st place in all but 3 competitions. Louqa was playing with Shockz while at Mindfreak, and Like Louqa, Shockz also had a great season with the team. Shockz was also a substitute for Red Reserve in the 2019 CWL season.
The two players already have a good start on the team as they know each other’s playing styles. Joining the two ex-Mindfreak players is Denz. Denz also played with Mindfreak, but a year before Louqa and Shockz. He was part of Team Reciprocity both as part of the starting line-up and also as a substitute. Denz brings great experience as he participated in most of the major tournaments n 2019. In addition to Denz is another player with some solid experience from the 2019 CWL season and that player is Paul “Breszy” Breszynski. Breszy played for Denial Esports, a team that struggled early on in the 2019 season. However, Breszy moved to Elevate, who entered the CWL league after it’s launch. The team did very well and was considered favorites in many tournaments. From there, Breszy moved to Enigma6 Group, who also did decent in the league. Joining the squad is Zach “Zed” Denyer, a well-seasoned Call of Duty esports player that has 3 years of experience in competitions. Zed was one of the top players when we played with Team Reciprocity and was named MVP of Week 1 for Stage 1 of the 2016 EU CWL. (source). Zed will bring solid experience to the group.
In addition to the PL roster is Matthew “Kismet” Tinsley and Timothy “Phantomz” Landis. Kismet was part of Enigma6 for a year and has participated in most majors in the 2019 CWL season. Enigma6 finished in an impressive 4th place at the Call of Duty World League Championship 2019. Phantomz had quite the experience last year playing with four different teams. He started off with FC Black and moved his way up to the starting roster for FaZe Clan. He then switched teams to Evil Geniuses and then UYU. His best placement last season 1st place at CWL Fort Worth playing for FC Black which is the academy team for FaZe Clan.
