Arcitys Joins Los Angeles Guerrillas

One of the most successful players in Call of Duty esports history, Alec "Arcitys" Sanderson, has officially joined Los Angeles Guerrillas for the 2023 season.

One of the most successful players in Call of Duty esports history, Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson, has officially joined Los Angeles Guerrillas for the 2023 season. The news surfaced on Wednesday, August 24, when Arcitys officially parted ways with FaZe.

An Illustrious Career Continues

Arcitys is widely known as one of the most successful Call of Duty players in history and one of the best players in recent years. The 24-year-old started his esports career in December 2015, with EZG eSports West, before playing for Apotheon Esports, FLARE eSports, GosuCrew, and eUnited, who he joined in December 2016.

Although the first stops of his career were relatively short, Arcitys has found his home at eUnited, where he has remained for nearly two and a half years, competing in some of CoD esports’ biggest tournaments.

At eUnited, Arcitys played alongside some of the top CoD players, including Chris “Simp” Lehr, Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris, James “Clayster” Eubanks, and his twin brother Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson, with whom he would reunite later in his career.

Even though his success at eUnited was limited during the CoD: World War II era, the team still finished fourth in the Call of Duty World League Championship 2018. But, Arcitys and co. shifted into a higher gear during the 2019 season.

During the CoD: Black Ops 4 era, eUnited were easily one of the best teams in the scene, constantly competing for the highest honors. Notably, they placed second in CWL Las Vegas Open 2019 and CWL London 2019 and won CWL Pro League 2019, CWL Pro League 2019 Playoffs, and the Call of Duty World League Championship 2019.

Onto Call of Duty League

After the CoD esports scene transitioned to Call of Duty League, eUnited disbanded, leaving its players to find a new home. Arcitys left the team to join Chicago Huntsmen for the inaugural CDL season, and while the team has achieved solid success, winning the Call of Duty League 2020 Week 8 – Seattle, the Huntsmen ended the season in third place.

After failing to defend his CoD world championship title, Arcitys joined Atlanta FaZe, where he spent the next two years leading the team to three Major titles and CDL 2021 Championship title.

Unfortunately, the 2022 season was not nearly as fruitful for FaZe and Arcitys. However, the team still reached three Major titles and the Call of Duty League Championship 2022 finals, where they lost against London Royal Ravens.

A Shock Move

Although Arcitys entered the offseason as a restricted free agent, no one expected him to leave FaZe, let alone for Los Angeles Guerrillas. Even though FaZe failed to reach the same heights in 2022 as last season, they remained one of the top teams in the league, and many believe the roster would stick together heading into the 2023 season.

But it seems like Arcitys had other plans, as he now joins the Guerrillas, where he’ll play alongside Cuyler “Huke” Garland, Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat, Kris “Spart” Cervantez, and Travis “Neptune” McCloud.

Although a shock departure, adding Arcitys makes a lot of sense for LA Guerrillas, who will look to bounce back from a disappointing run through the 2022 season. The team endured a roller coaster of a season, as the organization won its first CDL tournament (Major Two) but failed to qualify for the CDL Championship.

Still, despite the team’s shaky run in 2022, LA Guerrillas can feel hopeful about their chances to make a splash in the Modern Warfare 2 season, as they now field a significantly stronger roster. However, it remains to be seen who will take over as the head coach and replacement for Bevils, who left the team on August 9.
