Two-time Call of Duty world champion Patrick 'ACHES' Price has reminded everyone of his illustrious career, as he looks to secure himself a starting spot on a franchise roster.

CoD esports is moving to a franchise league model for the first time next year with the launch of Modern Warfare, meaning a Rostermania like none other is now underway.

Players will need to convince all new organizations and team owners that they're the right person for the roster, and even veterans like ACHES are putting their best foot forward.

ACHES won the 2018 World Championship with Evil Geniuses.

While many players have kept it strictly professional with simple free agency announcements, ACHES followed up his declaration of free agency with a 'flex' to really impress the team owners and managers - and to shut down his detractors.

Having won both the 2014 and 2018 World Championship, ACHES has hoisted two oversized checks for $400,000 and $600,000 respectively, and joked that he was struggling to display his many accolades.

"Just tried hanging up my $600,000 check and I knocked down my $400,000 check and then it knocked over 6 of my 18 other trophies," Price explained, "at least my 2 rings are still ok. Hope your night is going better than mine."

As one of only six players to have won two or more rings (only Damon 'Karma' Barlow has three), it's certainly one of ACHES' major selling points for prospective teams.

Although his Envy team, going through various iterations of rosters, struggled throughout the 2019 Black Ops 4 season, ACHES has shown repeatedly that he is always capable of bouncing back and reaching the top.

It will be a surprise if he isn't named on a starting lineup when the league commences, given his pedigree at the highest level. But, competition is set to be stiffer than ever with the new system.

Rosters will feature up to ten players, seven minimum, and it's possible that seasoned players like ACHES will feature in more of a leadership role, than the out-and-out slayer he was known as in the earlier stages of his career.

Modern Warfare is a return to the more slow-paced, tactical gameplay style of Call of Duty though, and this is certainly the type of game the former Envy star has proven himself most effective at in the past.
