The Call of Duty franchise based in Dallas has announced that legendary veteran player Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter will be the final member of their starting lineup for the 2020 CDL season.

Envy Gaming’s Dallas Call of Duty franchise is one of 12 organizations that will be participating in the 2020 CDL season – the inaugural campaign for the esport’s transition to a franchise-based model.

During the week of October 14-18, the team announced one member of its starting lineup per day, starting off with defending World Champion  James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks.

Saving perhaps the biggest announcement for last, they revealed Crimsix to be their fifth starting player on October 18, confirming what many had already been speculating after clues had been dropped earlier in the week.

“How everything went down?” Crim said in his cinematic announcement video. “How the last years have gone? It’s all white noise now. It’s all behind me. But I will never forgive, and will never forget. Most players, they want to be the best, but I’m way past that now. It’s about cementing myself as the greatest of all time.”

It will undoubtedly take a while to get used to seeing Crimsix in a jersey that’s not emblazoned with the green of OpTic Gaming.

He joined the Green Wall back in 2014 and quickly established himself as an integral part of what later became known as OpTic’s ‘dynasty roster,’ along with Scump, FormaL, and Karma.

He ended up winning 19 major tournaments with the organization, bringing his total to 32 and making him the winningest player in CoD history, and second in esports overall, behind Halo legend and current Florida CoD GM Tom ‘OGRE2’ Ryan.

Unfortunately, it appears that his time with OpTic did not end on good terms, as he claimed that he was “forced out” by former teammates, leading to him announcing free agency in early September. 

Crimsix - TwitterCrimsix was a key member of OpTic’s ‘dynasty roster,’ helping deliver the Green Wall their first ever World Championship.

Speaking of OpTic, they did Crimsix the honor of giving him a proper farewell on social media after the announcement went live, posting a collage of his most memorable moments and captioning it with a goodbye message.

“Today, we part ways with Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter,” they tweeted. “We thank him for his time and skill, and the passion that he put toward OpTic for the past five years. We wish him nothing but success and look forward to his next adventure with CoD Dallas.”

While this completes Dallas CoD’s expected starting lineup for the 2020 season, it does not mean that they will not be making any more player signings.

With organizations required to have at least seven players, and mid-match substitutions having been confirmed as part of the competitive format, fans can expect Dallas to make more announcements in the near future.

That said, the collection of players they’ve already put together is quite fearsome, as it combines the veteran leadership and experience of Clayster and Crimsix, the already established talent of Huke, and the young and raw skill of both iLLeY and Shotzzy. 


DALLAS CALL OF DUTY STARTING LINEUP:

  • James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks
  • Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro
  • Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland
  • Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal
  • Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter

Nadeshot and Scump stunned by Tfue’s “insane” Warzone sniper streak

Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner were left almost speechless as streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney started hitting in “insane” sniper streak in Call of Duty battle royale Warzone.

Scump and Nade are veterans in the Call of Duty scene, and they’ve seen just about everything you could see in a CoD game after years of playing with the best of the best.

For that reason, it must be hard to truly impress them, and it makes it even more special when someone does.

While Tfue isn’t famed for his Warzone prowess, having risen to the top of Twitch thanks to his incredible Fortnite gameplay, the skills are clearly transferable, as he found himself not missing a single headshot while traversing Verdansk.

Tfue was a champion in Fortnite, and is clearly looking to prove his grit and worth again in Warzone.

Since Season 6 launched, the new SP-R208 sniper has become a favorite for players thanks to its fast ADS and precision, and Tfue made it look like the easiest gun in the world to use as he hit headshot after headshot.

The trio were running through Boneyard, with Tfue alone already at 14 kills for himself before hitting this incredible streak, and you’re not likely to see a more perfect display of in-game accuracy than this.

Sneaking up behind his enemies, Tfue hit three successive headshots to down the players, and followed them all up with headshots while they were downed, too. Not content with just that, he found two more players on the outskirts of Boneyard, including one just flying in, and hit them square in the face too, with just one bullet going stray the entire time.

Throughout, Nadeshot couldn’t believe what he was seeing, calling the former Fortnite pro “elite” while Scump simply told him that he’s “cracked.”

Finally, Nade joked that Tenney was “creating a montage” and, to his credit, it would be one of the best montage clips on any video it appeared in if it were to.
