In a March 31 YouTube upload, the Chicago Huntsmen Call of Duty League team were forced to choose which players they would pick up if they lost certain teammates – and built some incredible squads in the process.
With the CDL currently out of action thanks to the ongoing worldwide situation, not many teams are able to provide the usual content that comes from events, but luckily for us the Huntsmen had some in their reserves.
In this video, the players were tasked to spin a wheel, which featured an image of each player and coach on the team, and pick which other CDL pro they would replace said player with.
Gunless opted to replace Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannan and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner with another formidable SMG duo in Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson and Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris.
Conversely, Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson would choose to replace himself and Envoy with Atlanta FaZe’s Preston ‘Priestahh’ Griener and either Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr or Tyler ‘Abezy’ Pharris.
Scump said he would take NRG content creator Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards for Mboze, and Seattle Surge’s Sam ‘Octane’ Larew for Arcitys, while Envoy would replace Arcitys with Priestahh and Scump with Minnesota ROKKR’s Obey ‘Asim’ Asim.
It wasn’t just the starting players who got involved, though, with the likes of Hitch, Marcus ‘Mboze’ Blanks and CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez even picking replacements – with the latter making perhaps the most interesting choice of all, saying he would bring in 100 Thieves founder Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag to replace Envoy.
Although there’s clearly no serious intent behind this, it’s interesting to see which teams these players would form if their hands were forced – and nobody can deny they would be interested to see Nadeshot back on main stage again.
Of course, these are all hypothetical, but the idea of Chicago stacking their roster with the likes of Octane, Simp or Priestahh sounds utterly terrifying for their CDL opponents.
