The LA Guerrillas have signed Neptune to their starting roster ahead of the Major 4 qualifiers, while promoting substitute Spart to the main stage.
After a promising mid-season to capture the Major 2 crown, LAG is making big changes to mix up the formula at the end of the 2022 campaign. Since the Guerrillas were notably fielding veterans at every position, this means a couple of stars will be outside the rotation.
With only a couple of weeks to go until Stage 4, LAG is getting back to what worked for them at Prior Lake with Spart and bringing an outstanding CDL to their ranks.
LA Guerrillas signs Neptune and promotes Spart
The Los Angeles Guerrillas added former NY Subliners pro Travis ‘Neptune’ McCloud to the roster, who will be backed by Kris ‘Spart’ Cervantez, Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat and Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland.
The decision means that Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman and Obaid ‘Asim’ will be benched and will likely be left out of Stage 4 if the lineup holds.
Neptune returns to the CDL after a season in Challengers with teams like WhichItTakes and Shady Kings. In the meantime, Spart will reclaim their spot on the main roster that brought LAG their fair share of success in the past.
Guerrillas will be hoping to fix their issues early on as there are only a couple more opportunities to add to their CDL point total before Champs at Los Angeles.

They currently have 125 CDL points and rank seventh in placements, with the LA Thieves (120 CDL points), Florida Mutineers (110 CDL points) and Minnesota ROKKR (110 CDL points) all within striking distance of a playoff spot.
The new team composition will debut once the Major 4 online qualifiers begin on Friday, June 24, when the league makes its final push towards the Champions.
