Los Angeles Guerrillas is one of the two official Call of Duty League franchise teams of Los Angeles, United States. It is owned and operated by Kroenke Sports & Entertainment.

History[edit]

Modern Warfare[edit]

The Kroenke Los Angeles team was announced on August 20, 2019. Two months later, on October 18, 2019, the team branding was revealed as the Los Angeles Guerrillas. ACHES was announced as their first player and team captain on October 25. On October 31, AquA joined as the second player and Decemate joined on the next day. The initial coaching staff was announced on November 7 with Bevils joins as head coach, Ricky joining as assistant coach, and Doug Liebe joining as analyst. Blazt joined as the team's first substitute on December 12. Ricky was listed as a substitute on the Call of Duty League website on January 13, 2020.

The Guerrillas entered Launch Weekend as one of the lowest rated teams. In their first match against home team Minnesota RØKKR, the Guerrillas were about to go up 2-0 in the series when they were forfeited map 2 for using an illegal perk. Minnesota flipped the momentum and won the series 3-1. The team was able to regroup and beat Florida Mutineers in their second match. Week 2 did not fair any better as they were double first rounded in Group A and eliminated in last place. Going into the Los Angeles Home Series, the Guerrillas overhauled their roster by adding Spart and Vivid from Challengers and Blazt from the bench to replace ACHES, Saints, and Lacefield. Saints supposedly benched himself after the team's poor start. It seemed like the change would prove immediate dividends as they went up 2-0 against city rivals OpTic Gaming Los Angeles, but they were then reverse swept and then lost 3-0 to Seattle Surge to get bounced from the tournament on six straight maps losses. After an extended break due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Guerrillas returned in Week 5 but were quickly knocked out by Dallas Empire and Florida Mutineers. In Week 6 against Seattle Surge, they lost again. After beating OpTic Gaming Los Angeles in the elimination match, the Guerrillas lost yet again to Seattle Surge, making Seattle's only four wins against the Guerrillas. Week 8 would give the Guerrillas another match-up against the Surge, this time in the elimination match of Seattle's Home Series. For the first time this season, the Guerrillas defeated the Surge but then lost to the Subliners in the qualifier match. Saints rejoined the starters in place of Spart leading up to to Week 9, and with all fans expecting another 0-2 weekend, they showed up big time. LA beat Toronto before losing to Florida. Then they did something for the first time all season. The Guerrillas defeated Chicago and advanced out of the group stage. They then lost 2-3 to Atlanta FaZe in an incredibly close series where they could have easily gone to the final if a few unlucky S&D rounds went their way.
