Justin Fargo-Palmer who goes by the name "SiLLY" is a Call of Duty esports player. He has been playing for Los Angeles Guerrillas and has been moved to the SMG role. Just before Stage Three kicks off, the Call of Duty League franchise is making a change in the roster.
The organization announced that Reece "Vivid" Drost has been benched by the Los Angeles Guerrillas. He will be replaced by Cheen who has formerly known as Martin "Chino" Chino. He was signed in the Guerrillas as a part of the organization’s academy team in October and a substitute.
In the 2021 Call of Duty League season, the Los Angeles Guerrillas has seen mixed results so far. The Los Angeles Guerrillas are in eighth place with 70 CDL points and a 5-9 match record. To achieve this, they had to pull off some notable upsets over the Los Angeles Thieves and Atlanta FaZe earlier this year.
The head coach Bevils said in the team’s announcement video, based on their last-place finish at the Stage Two Major earlier this month, the Guerrillas' coaching staff had identified some very key issues and had talks with each player individually to solve the issues and decide what they need to do moving forward.
Bevils said that Vivid was given an option to stay on the roster. He also mentioned that he had decided that it would be in both parties’ best interest to explore other options.
Adapting this change, Cheen will now compete alongside SiLLY, Apathy, and Assault heading into Stage Three. Following the departure of Vivid, SiLLY will be switching to a submachine gun role on the roster. This is because Cheen is well-versed in the role of an assault rifle player throughout his career.
Cheen has been playing Call of Duty League and has good experience in it. He used to play for OpTic Gaming Los Angeles last year in the inaugural season on Call of Duty League. Before the establishment of the Call of Duty League, Cheen was popular for his time on Team Kaliber during WWII season. Here, his squad won back-to-back events. In 2018, he was named the MVP of CWL New Orleans.
Cheen’s first appearance for the Los Angeles Guerrillas will take on Saturday, April 24 at 2pm CT when they compete against the Paris Legion. 2021 Call of Duty League Season, Stage Three officially started on April 22, at 2pm CT.
