According to Gotfrag.com, Pandemic has seen some COD changes to usher in the new year:
The 2009 CoD4 competitions are all coming up. With that in mind, Pandemic has decided to add a new player to their lineup. Replacing David “skinz” Patnode, who left when the team originally switched to CoD5, is Nicolas Aubin, formerly of 50cal.
While team captain Joe “Nabore” Amorosa felt that it was time to head in another direction, he did note that Patnode was a vital part of the team’s success last year.
“The reason we made this change was because skinz was not interested in competing in Call of Duty 5,” said Amorosa. “He stepped back from our squad before the switch back to cod4, and we as a team felt that overall a new direction couldn’t hurt. The switch to me is an improvement, but to say David was lacking in performance is absurd since we won an international championship with him. I just want to wish him the best of luck in whatever he chooses to do.”
