With the Call of Duty launch weekend rapidly approaching, teams are starting to add the final faces to their rosters. Each team has revealed their core five players and now need to make sure they have two to five substitutes to complete their roster.

Atlanta FaZe has announced two substitutes that will be joining the ranks.

These two gamers will join the five, already announced, core players of Atlanta FaZe.

Thomas “GRVTY” Malin
• Birthplace: United States
• Birthdate: July 5, 1998
• Twitter: @tomGRVTY
• Notable Accomplishments: GRVTY has been competing in Call of Duty since 2017, and he has played for multiple teams. His most significant achievement in competitive Call of Duty is a first-place finish at the CWL Fort Worth Open 2019 with FC Black. With the same team, he placed second in the World Gaming Network Championship Series 2019 Grand Finals.

Juan “JurNii” Antonio González
• Birthplace: Spain
• Birthdate: February 7, 2000
• Twitter: @Jurniii
• Notable Accomplishments: A Call of Duty competitive gamer since 2015, JurNii has a lot of tournament experience with Team Heretics. With that team, he placed eighth in the CWL Pro League 2019 and 16th at the Call of Duty World League Championship 2019.

With the addition of GRVTY and JurNii, Atlanta FaZe has hit the minimum number of players needed to compete in Call of Duty League. All 12 city teams need at least seven players, up to a total of ten.

These are the first two substitutes to join the team, and they will be traveling to Minnesota, Minneapolis, for the launch weekend, which takes place January 24th to 26th. It’s not confirmed yet if Atlanta FaZe plans on adding any more substitutes to their roster, or if they’ll ride it out with the seven players they have.

GRVTY and JurNii join a solid list of players, which features Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris, Chris “Simp” Lehr, McArthur “Cellium” Jovel, Michael “MajorManiak” Szymaniak, and Preston “Priestahh” Greiner.

Atlanta FaZe’s first match will be on the Sunday of the launch weekend when they take on OpTic Gaming LA.

The team then gets the second week of action off and comes back the third week to host the event. In their home town, they will face off with the Minnesota Røkkr and the Chicago Huntsmen.
