Seattle Surge Roster

The new 5-man Seattle Surge (SS) roster consists of professional Call of duty players from the old Call of Duty World League:

  • Damon Barlow – KARMA
  • Ian Wyatt – ENABLE
  • Sam Larew – OCTANE
  • Josiah Berry – SLACKED
  • Bryan Zhelyazkov- APATHY
  • Casey Romano (Substitute) – PANDUR
  • Nicholas Maldonado – PROTO

The Seattle Surge has an impressive roster, consisting of Call of Duty World Champions and MVPs. Damon “Karma” Barlow joined Seattle Surge after spending years with OpTic Gaming. When OG’s parent company was acquired by Immortals Gaming, the team’s future was uncertain, and Karma decided to keep his availability open for the new Call of Duty League. When the Seattle Surge signed Damon to the team one of the best players in the league, but they signed one of the best players in history. Karma’s resume is long and high, consisting of some of the greatest achievements in Call of Duty esports. Not only does he bring his knowledge and experience to the team, but he brings his leadership. Karma isn’t alone, however, as he has 4 solid players on the roster. Josiah “Slacked” Berry is another seasoned veteran with multiple achievements in the league. Slacked played for Luminosity Gaming last season. On paper the roster was an All-Star team, however, LG wasn’t able to continue their momentum after winning CWL Fort Worth.  Regardless of Luminosity’s placement at the end of the season, Slacked was considered one of the best in 2019.

In addition to the two veterans are teammates from 100 Thieves, Sam “Octane” Larew and Ian “Enable” Wyatt. Both players had a successful run in the 2019 CWL season with 100 Thieves, being the first team to win back-to-back titles in 2019. Octane has won a variety of MVP’s of the year; last one at CWL London 2019. Additionally, Octane was a 2016, 2017 and 2019 CWL Pro League All-Star. He’s a clutch player that brings a lot of offense to the team. Ian “Enable” Wyatt was a professional Halo competitor before he jumped onto the Call of Duty train. Enable has played for many major teams including FaZe Clan and Evil Geniuses. He also has a lot of success in 2019, and finished strong with 100 Thieves at the CWL Championship placing in 2nd. Bryan “Apathy” Zhelyazkov joins the team from Evil Geniuses. Apathy is a Call of Duty World Champion, winning the 2018 Championships with Evil Geniuses playing World War II. Although EG didn’t have a great 2019 season, they did manage to finish 8th overall for the 2019 World Championships.

The Seattle Surge is up there in the Call of Duty League as having one of the best rosters. SS fans will be eagerly waiting for the new season to begin to see how their team performs.
