The Call of Duty League Major II qualifiers are a week away, and some important news was announced. Paul "PaulEhx" Avila has decided to step away from competing, as well as social media.

He stated on "Hey guys, I wanted to let you all know I need some time to find my footing in life again if I want to progress. This is me stepping away from social media and from competing until I feel that I am the best person and teammate I possibly can be. I am still a part of London as their substitute, and I have their back like I know they have mine. They have been nothing but supportive of me in this situation. Thank you to everyone who supports me. I hope you will continue to support me through my journey. I'll be back better than ever.

-Paul <3

The Royal Ravens played well enough to rank sixth heading into group play of Major I but ran into trouble when Seattle Surge demolished them in a clean sweep of the match. They then took a tough loss to the Challengers, Los Angeles Guerrillas Academy, in a close match, 3-2.

On the new Modern Warfare 2 game, the struggles were evident for the Royal Ravens, as they couldn't carry any momentum through the weekend. A change was imminent, as rumors circulated that London would swap PaulEhx for their substitute player Matthew "Skrapz" Marshall. It's never going to sit well with a player being benched. Still, it was a bit of a surprise to many that PaulEhx would be completely stepping away for an unforeseen amount of time, though he will remain a substitute and likely won't compete in Challengers.
