Luminosity Gaming Call of Duty pro Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman has revealed who their roster’s fifth player is going to be in a command in his Twitch channel. 

When typing the !team command in the chat box of Gunless’ Twitch channel, a message pops up that names all of five players that will be competing for LG in the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.

Included in that list are Gunless, FormaL, John, Slacked, and Nicholas ‘Classic’ DiCostanzo, who has not yet been officially announced as a member of LG.

This command, and the fact that Gunless hasn’t bothered to take it down despite its publicity, all but confirms that Classic is indeed joining LG.

The only thing left to do is for the org to officially announce him as their newest player, which would simply be just a formality at this point. 

Despite not being officially announced, it almost feels as though Classic joining LG has become old news, especially considering the leaks and heavy speculation that have been going on over the past two weeks.

Even 100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag accidentally revealed the news when discussing JKap’s move to eUnited, which both he and JKap claim was mismanaged and poorly handled

Classic, who has played for LG in the past, spent the entirety of the WWII season with Team EnVy. However, due to a largely underwhelming campaign, he and the rest of his former EnVy teammates, save for Huke, were dropped in favor of the former Evil Geniuses roster that won 2018 CWL Champs.

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
