Top 5 Offseason Call of Duty League Roster Moves

With Call of Duty League action right around the corner, let’s take a look at the 5 best roster moves that occurred this offseason. With professional Call of Duty returning to 4 vs. 4 action, this year is sure to provide some highly competitive gameplay.

Not only has the league’s skill level increased, but we can also count on Black Ops Cold War to deliver a more appealing iteration of professional Call of Duty than Modern Warfare.

Although Modern Warfare garnered appeal amongst casual players, the professional community harbored great disdain for last year’s game. With pro players feeling optimistic about the coming year, let’s dive into the Top 5 signings of the Call of Duty League. 

Top 5 Signings In the Call of Duty League

1. Arcitys

Arcitys is a no-brainer on this list. After winning The Call of Duty Championship in 2019, Arcitys found moderate success with the Huntsmen in 2020. The Huntsmen finished 4th in regular-season standings and third at The Call of Duty Championship. Arcitys was a top performer last year, and he will aim to continue to be a consistent player across all game modes.

Arcitys will be reuniting with his 2019 Championship winning teammates Simp and Abezy. Atlanta Faze was a dominant force last year. It is difficult to imagine how this team could improve from last year’s dominant form. However, picking up Arcitys is a step in that direction. 

2. Dashy

Dashy is, without a doubt, one of the more polarizing selections on this list. No one has ever doubted Dashy’s skill level. Joining a team with Scump, Formal, and Envoy, Dashy will look to rebound from a lackluster year that saw him relegated to the OpTic Gaming Los Angeles bench for most of the season.

Many fans of the newly minted OpTic Chicago have doubts about the team’s cohesiveness. I, for one, have no such worries. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the vibes between these four players are at an all-time high.

They enjoy playing together. Dashy and his teammates will find a way to make it work and solve any role issues that may arise before the season’s launch. There are few teams in the league as technically gifted as OpTic Chicago. 

3. Priestahh

The Minnesota RØKKR are heading into the new season with a completely reshaped lineup. Their current roster consists of 4 brand new players. Of the four, the biggest standout is aggressive sub player Priestahh. Priestahh has also played in flex roles throughout his career.

Priestahh shines in most roles due to his creativity and high Call of Duty IQ. Alongside the leadership of Accuracy, steady play of MajorManiak, and slaying power of Attach, Minnesota has the greatest upset potential in the league. Priestahh will bring his Championship-winning experience to a well-balanced team. 

4. Gunless

The Seattle Surge will improve on their disappointing season. The Seattle Surge finished second to last in the inaugural CDL season. The team put together one atrocious performance after another, despite the sharp play of Octane. Luckily, Seattle has managed to keep hold of Octane. The Main AR player is one of the best in the league.

This year, Seattle adds Gunless, Loony, and Prestinni to the lineup. Of the three, Gunless has the potential to make the most significant impact.

Gunless has a lot to prove this year. After sitting out for most of the 2020 season, the Canadian will be looking to get back to his best. Gunless was once considered one of the best in the world. I believe the flex player can return to the top this year alongside Octane and take the Seattle Surge up a notch. 

5. HyDra

Of all the rookies making their debut in the 2021 season, HyDra has the highest ceiling. It can be an electric year for the 18-year-old native of France. HyDra has the potential to be a historic slayer in the Call of Duty scene.

His aggressive style of play and gun skill is reminiscent of Shotzzy and Simp. Both have had their fair share of early success as a pro, and HyDra may be the next man up.

The one glaring issue for the New York Subliners player is his inability to enter the United States of America to compete. HyDra is facing visa issues, and NY fans may have to wait weeks or even months before the young phenom makes his debut. 

 

Call of Duty League action kicks off on February 11th with the Atlanta Home Series. Matches will take place from the 11th to the 14th. How do you feel about your team’s new signings?
