Prior to the start of the Call of Duty League Major IV qualifiers, the Boston Breach announced a new addition to their starting roster on Tuesday. The team has signed Reece “Vivid” Drost to replace Kenyen “Capsidal” Sutton.

Capsidal moves to the bench for the time being, but the Breach stated that the rookie player “remains a part of our long-term plan in the CDL.” Vivid is coming from the Florida Mutineers, who formally announced the departure of the player earlier today.

This was a rumored move all along, as Florida are looking to make serious changes to their roster ahead of Major IV. Boston, on the other hand, are coming off an abysmal performance in Major III, going 1-5 and not winning a single match at the Major. It seems as though Capsidal is the team’s scapegoat for now, but the rookie won’t be going far. The Breach intend to keep Capsidal for the rest of this season and beyond, apparently hoping that some time in Challengers will help his overall gameplay in the future.

Vivid will essentially take Cap’s role on Boston. Both are submachine gun slayers that enter gunfights first and like to eat up time in the objective. However, Vivid will need to pick up the slack in terms of basic performance. Capsidal currently has a 1.01 KD in 2022 while Vivid has a 0.89. Vivid’s KD is good for the second-worst out of players currently in the league.

Perhaps more notably is the drop-off between Capsidal and Vivid’s Search and Destroy KDs. Cap holds a 1.16 while Vivid has a 0.85. If Boston wants to have any more success than they did in Major III, Vivid will need to step up his game, specifically in Search and Destroy.

The one logical reason for this move on Boston’s end is to bring some veteran talent on their roster. Capsidal is still a rookie and might not be meshing with the veteran members of Boston’s roster, such as Anthony “Methodz” Zinni. Although, time will tell if picking up a struggling veteran over a decently-performing rookie will work out for the Breach in the long run.

Major IV qualifiers for the CDL begin on Friday.
