Sam “Octane” Larew has joined the Call of Duty League representatives Los Angeles Thieves for the upcoming season.
The Call of Duty League team Los Angeles Thieves have made their first move before the 2022 season. The team have parted ways with most of the roster a couple of days ago. According to the latest announcement, Octane will be playing for the Thieves in the next season. This is the first transfer that team have announced so far.
Octane is one of the most experienced players in the league. After playinff for numerous esports teams, he joined Seattle Surge back in 2019. Sam spent his last two years with the Seattle representatives but the team never achieved anything worthwhile.
Octane was an important part of the Luminosity Gaming roster which was a championship contender team back in 2018 and 2018. After parting ways with the South American organization, he then played for OpTic Gaming with Seth “Scump” Abner and Ian Hubert “C6” Porter.
Unfortunately, Los Angeles Thieves failed to meet expectations during the Call of Duty League 2020 season. The team made many roster changes but still couldn’t make it to the top. On their road to the glory, it looked like the chemistry was not there during the whole year, even with the roster changes.
The Los Angeles representatives have announced the departures of Johnathan “John” Perez, Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat, Cuyler “Huke” Garland, and Carlos “Venom” Hernandez. There were still two more players on the roster before the arrival of Octane. Zack “Drazah” Jordan and Kenneth “Kenny” Williams may remain with the team in the upcoming roster.
Octane will bring experience to the team for sure and he may also setp up with his playmaking abilities. Every team would want experience on their rosters and the Thieves have found theirs. The team will announce more transfers in the future to fill its roster before the new season.
