Rise Nation is a professional Call of Duty organization located in the United States.

History

Ghosts

Living the Dream was created in early 2014 by gaming friends Rodger Saffold and Kahreem Horsley to qualify for Call of Duty Championship 2014. The first roster consisted of FEARS, Pacman, Whea7s, and Loony. After placing 5-6th at Call of Duty Championship 2014: US Regional Final, the team changed their name to the current Rise Nation.

At Call of Duty Championship 2014, the team would be placed in Group F with Vitality.Rises, Wizards e-Sports Club and Brazil 5 Stars. They made easy work of these three international teams by winning all three series with a map count of 9-2. In WBR1, Rise took down VexX Revenge 3-1 before losing to Trident T1 Dotters in game 5 round 10. In the Loser's Bracket, Rise would defeat TCM Gaming 3-2 but ultimately fall to Strictly Business 3-1 in LBR3 to be eliminated from the tournament. They took home a 7th Place finish and $35,000.

After Champs, FEARS left the roster and was replaced by Saint. This only lasted for MLG Championship Anaheim: Open Bracket where they placed second and qualifed for a spot in MLG CoD League Season 3 Regular Season. Saint was replaced by Attach for the rest of Ghosts.

Despite a weak 13-16th Place finish at UMG Dallas 2014, the team stayed together and managed a 2nd Place finish in MLG CoD League Season 3 Regular Season. The team rounded out the year with a 4th and a 7-8th Place finish at UMG Nashville 2014 and MLG CoD League Season 3 Playoffs respectively. Attach and Loony were then released before Advanced Warfare.

Advanced Warfare

Going into the first event, MLG Columbus 2014, Rise picked up Chino and Diabolic. Chino will remain on the team for the rest of the year but he will end up playing with twelve other players total in Advanced Warfare. Two 17-20th finishes resulted in Whea7s moving to Substitute for Sender. A 7-8th Place finish at MLG Pro League Season 1 Playoffs and Whea7s was traded to Automatic Reload for Miyagi who would only be on the team for event where Rise failed to qualify for Call of Duty Championship 2015. The team only managed two top five finishes for the rest of the year including 2nd Place at MES Detroit 25k, which was a small tournament which most major teams didn't attend. Rise would drop all four remaining players after they finished 13-16th at MLG World Finals 2015.

Black Ops III

With less than two weeks remaining before the release of Black Ops III, Rise Nation picked up Slacked, Classic, and rising star Octane. Loony also rejoined the team as captain. At Totino's Invitational 2015, Rise Nation would finally do somethings they've been trying to do for nearly two years - win an event. The team defeated both Luminosity Gaming and Team Kaliber 2-1 to set up the first meeting of the year's top two teams. OpTic Gaming had just come off of a dominating win at MLG World Finals and were looking to continue that trend but Rise had other plans. In game 5 round 11, Slacked held down the B Bomb site with two Annihilator kills and dethroned Optic. This marked the first time a team not name OpTic Gaming or FaZe Clan won a major event since 2014.

Following the win, Rise Nation was invited to the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Pro Division Qualifying Invitational Tournament where they defeated 3sUP and Team eLevate to claim their spot in 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Regular Season. Two months later at the first LAN since Totino's, Rise would solidify themselves as a top team as they defeated Luminosity Gaming 4-1 in the UMG South Carolina 2016 Champion Tournament Finals. Over the next four weeks, Rise would finish 2nd Place in two of the four online CWL Challenger Division tournaments. Rise was one of three North American teams invited to ESWC Zénith 2016.

In the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Regular Season, Rise Nation would finish 2nd Place with a 16-6(54-31) record. In the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Playoffs Finals, Rise would once again face up against OpTic Gaming. But this time, OpTic would get the best of Rise and take home the championship.
