After weeks of speculation, James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks has officially signed with the Call of Duty League’s New York Subliners following the three-time world champion’s release from the Dallas Empire.

With the Call of Duty League swapping to 4 vs. 4 play for CDL 2021, Clayster was released from the Empire on September 1, just days after playing a pivotal role in the team’s championship run at the inaugural CDL Champs. Rumors circulated for weeks as to his next organization, but the announcement of his signing by the Subliners wasn’t officialized until September 18.

New York had a decent run themselves to round out the season, winning the New York Home Series championship and cementing a No. 5 seed for the postseason thanks to serious improvements from the roster following their midseason addition of Makenzie ‘Mack’ Kelley.

Like many rosters during an absurd CDL rostermania period, the Subliners have revamped their team and released numerous players into the wilderness of the offseason. At the moment, Clayster referenced his two confirmed teammates for CDL 2021: Mack and Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto.

Although releasing the inaugural season champion so suddenly was surely a heartbreaking moment, Dallas elected to do so as quickly as possible so that Clayster could land with the team he preferred. Unsurprisingly, that team happened to be the Subliners.
