The deadline for substitutes is approaching and the CWL Pro League teams will be announcing their sixth players leading up to league play, with some of the biggest names in Call of Duty being tapped to join new teams.

Substitutes are a new feature in the CWL and all league teams are required to have one. The sub will not be a regular member of the roster, teams will have to declare which weeks the substitute will be playing.

For the complete list of rules involving substitutes at the CWL Pro League, check out Dexerto’s guide on subs.

OpTic GamingWill OpTic add another big name as a sub?

Interest in CWL Pro League subs took off once massive names and established pros from teams like FaZe Clan, Knights, Lightning Pandas and G2 failed to qualify and became available for sub duty.

This is not a roster move window so CWL teams are not allowed to drop or sign replacements right now, they are only allowed to sign a sixth player to use as a sub. However, teams like 100 Thieves may be treating their sub as a new fifth.

Below are the announced signings of substitute players in the CWL Pro League.

CWL Pro League Substitutes

100 Thieves – Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez

Despite having been on the starting roster up to this point, Fero has been moved to the substitute role following the acquisition of Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner. 

Envy – Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevil 

While some teams decided to pick up a new player as their substitute, Envy have simply opted to make their coach, Bevils, their sub for the Pro League. 

Evil Geniuses – Adam ‘GodRx’ Brown

GodRx was one of the bright spots for the Pittsburgh Knights roster that failed to qualify for the Pro League.

Excelerate – Robert ‘RobbieB’ Brugnoli

RobbieB qualified for last year’s CoD Champs with EZG Esports.

Midnight Esports – Casey ‘Pandur’ Romano 

Pandur has spent the Black Ops 4 season with Pittsburgh Knights, but with the team failing to make it out of Pool C during the Qualifier, he’ll now join the team that finished at the top of the same Pool. 

Red Reserve – Conrad ‘Shockz’ Rymarek

Having played with Mindfreak since 2014, Shockz will finally play under a different banner as Red Reserve’s substitute for the upcoming season. 

Splyce – Nick ‘Happy’ Suda

Happy teamed with Splyce’s Accuracy during the Infinite Warfare season for Team Kaliber.

Team Reciprocity – Dylan ‘Dylan’ Henderson

Dylan competed with the fan-favorite Team Sween up to this point during the Black Ops 4 season, but the team failed to qualify for the CWL Pro League and Dylan has now been picked up by Reciprocity. 

UYU – Tristan ‘Spoof’ Green

After initially picking up Methodz as their sub, UYU made a controversial roster move by promoting him to the starting squad and demoting Spoof to the substitute’s role. 

OpTic Gaming – Thomas ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto

Although OpTic have picked up ZooMaa as their substitute, he will still remain a FaZe Clan player and will only be used by OpTic if absolutely necessary.

Enigma6 Group – Troy ‘Sender’ Michaels

The former Enigma6 player and current coach will also serve as the emergency substitute for the squad in the Pro League if they end up needing one.

Although hackers and stream snipers seem to have broken spirits across Call of Duty: Warzone, the battle royale remains a premier title in the field. As of February, 2021 — here are the 20 highest-earning competitors in terms of total tournament winnings. 

It may not feel as legitimized as esports like Apex Legends and Fortnite, but competitive Warzone continues to overcome cheater drama and the absence of a transparent SBMM system (or ranked league) to stay on top of Twitch’s viewership every week. With numerous high-paying tournaments every month since the game’s March 2020 debut, some players have stood out from the pack and made an impressive salary’s worth of prize winnings. We’ve seen incredible new world records set, a host of celebrities get involved, and a variety of high-stakes, big-bucks tournaments.

Using data from esportsearnings.com, we take a look at the top 20 Warzone players in terms of tournament winnings. We’ll take a more in-depth look at the top 3, and then provide a full list of the top 20.

3. Rhys ‘Rated’ Price – $100,658

Rated-100-Thieves

Winning tournament after tournament since partnering with Aydan, Rated has become the third competitor to crack $100,000 in Warzone earnings and simultaneously supplanted SuperEvan as No. 3 on the earnings list. With event wins during the $25K Code Red 2v2 and $25K Dallas Empire Challenge 2v2, Rated and Aydan continue to fly toward the top earnings spot.

A former London Royal Raven, Rated’s accurate mechanics and game sense have seamlessly transitioned to the battle royale. Given his individual talent and the unparalleled comms between he and Aydan, it’s hard to imagine the duo not taking the Nos. 1 and 2 earnings spots within a few months.

2. Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad – $135,721

Aydan Warzone

Based on his tweets and streams, it feels like the only thing that Aydan cares about right now is overtaking HusKerrs and becoming the highest earner in Verdansk. And, down by just around $1,000, he’s making serious progress toward that goal.

From Fortnite to Warzone, Aydan has been a longstanding figure in the battle royale sphere. But, for those unfamiliar with Epic Games’ third-person shooter, the charming beatboxer has truly made his mark on Verdansk by proving that his head is worth appreciating for more than its infamous dent. An absolute demon, Aydan has comfortably shifted from duos with MuTeX and Zlaner to winning every single 2v2 tournament with Rated.

Sitting atop our Warzone power rankings for consecutive months, it should not be long before Aydan overtakes Big Husk.

1. Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas – $136,150

Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is a battle royale star who has also held a number of Warzone world records. He previously made a name for himself in both Black Ops 4’s Blackout and Apex Legends, but has since transitioned over to Warzone. And that transition has proved immensely profitable, as the calm, collected gamer has become the first Warzone player to collect over $100,000 in tournament winnings.

As the most decorated player on Verdansk, HusKerrs shoots straight, rotates with vehicles, and practically never loses his head amid pressure. That mentality complements his skill, resulting in numerous Warzone titles.

Now, Aydan is gunning for his spot and HusKerrs seems to have taken some offense to the hopeful usurper’s lack of confidence in the reigning top earner. Eager to maintain his place, HusKerrs has begun grinding wagers with a new duo, Zlaner, and is quickly regaining top-dog form.

Top 20 Warzone players: highest earnings (as of February 24 2021)

The full top 20 highest earning Warzone players are listed below. In total, across all 20, over $1 million has been earned through Warzone tournaments. And those numbers are sure to increase, as prize pools continue to get larger and larger.

Since this is just a list of the highest earners cumulatively, it doesn’t include averages earned per event, otherwise, some players like Jukeyz and Biffle (whose invitations are limited by region and school, respectively) would likely be higher on the list.

2 Aydan $135,720.83
3 Rated $100,658.33

18 DougIsRaw $42,566.00
19 BobbyPoff $40,525.00
20 GaGOD $38,066.67

While Warzone’s tourneys and prize pools dropped for a period of time as attention shifted to Black Ops Cold War and the Call of Duty League, the game is regaining momentum as Season 2 launches. Already, numerous huge tourneys have been announced and the landscape for top earners is on the precipice of shifting.

We will continue to update this article’s figures as the competitive Warzone landscape develops.
