Chicago Huntsmen have revealed Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson as their latest major signing for the Call of Duty League team. 

The World Champion’s transfer was announced by the Huntsmen on May 18, finally confirming that he would be departing from the Florida Mutineers and rejoining his brother Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson on the Chicago side.

He had been rumored to be joining the org in recent weeks and such talk has turned out to be accurate. The reunion between the brothers will be a welcome one for fans of CoD esports, too, and his new team welcomed him with open arms in a tweet – as seen below.

In an official statement, his former team wished him luck on his new journey. They said: “Today we are announcing the transfer of Prestinni to another CDL team. We thank him for his tremendous effort and time with us. His passion for the game and competing will undoubtedly carry him far.”

With the transfer now done and dusted, Prestinni is expected to take the starting lineup spot left by Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman after Chicago made a swap in their lineup.

Huntsmen substitute Jordon ‘General’ General had been practicing with Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon, Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, and Arcitys amid the rumors of a roster change, though it appears he will likely resume his place on the substitute bench following the acquisition of Prestinni.

The last time the twins played together was in August 2019, with their huge World Championship win on eUnited alongside Atlanta FaZe’s Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr and Tyler ‘Abezy’ Pharris, as well as Dallas Empire’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks.

If the success they had together during their most recent stint is replicated even closely in the coming months, Huntsmen may have finally found the secret to returning to championship form.

What happens with Gunless remains to be seen. In a tweet posted shortly after the announcement, NRG co-CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez thanked the Canadian for being a “stand-up dude,” adding that they “hope they can find him a home soon.”

This certainly looks to be the end of Gunless’ time as a Chicago Huntsmen player, and only time will tell where he ends up by the end of the season. One thing is clear, though: with the twins back together, the pressure is now on to prove that the best decision was made, and to bring yet another trophy to Huntsmen’s cabinet.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
