Call of Duty has been the franchise of choice for many gamers seeking to branch out onto the competitive scene, and the latest installment, Call of Duty: Ghosts, is no different. With players flooding into the servers by the millions, it can be a little overwhelming to try and stand out amongst the thousands of voices crying out for sponsorship and the opportunity to showcase what they've got. All too many times, local teams try for years and years to simply be heard by major sponsors, and in the end, only a few are selected. Thankfully, as eSports has evolved, there are ways to make this transition from local player, to signed eSports competitor. One such way is being signed as an "Academy" team. This, simply put, is a teams chance to grab the spotlight, and try to justify to various organizations why they should be selected for extended travel and large tournament events.
As of April 19th, the team known as sYnrgy 2.0 was signed as Mortality eSports Call of Duty Academy team. Founded in March of 2014, this team has been climbing through the ranks, and boasts an impressive 4.0 W/L ratio. They currently are on a 10 winning streak, as of April 16, and show no signs of slowing down. The team consists of four players; Reckon Crook, Vz God, Excapist mT, and antigrav. Assuming this team of young southern Californians continue to gun down their opponents, and rise through the ranks in the current Spring 2014 Season, they may just be the next team to gain a full sponsorship, and take on the Morality eSports COD name.
