Canadian CoD pro Brandon ‘Dashy‘ Otell has reportedly been involved in a complicated rostermania for the new franchise league, as rosters are finalized for the inaugural Call of Duty League season.

Dashy rose to stardom when he joined OpTic Gaming for the Black Ops 4 season, after breaking onto the pro scene at CoD Champs in 2017.

After winning his first event for the GreenWall and securing MVP at CWL Vegas, he was an instant fan-favorite, and despite not winning again for the rest of the season, is still one of the hottest prospects heading into the new league.

DexertoDashy won MVP at his first event with OpTic.

His future roster has not been confirmed, but for now he is still officially a member of OpTic – owned by Immortals Gaming Club who have one of two LA spots in the franchise league.

This means that unless another team was to buy out his contract, he is set to continue to play in green for Modern Warfare. However, Call of Duty insider CDL Intel has claimed that there has been some turmoil in these negotiations.

According to sources, Dashy had signed to remain with the LA franchise, but had then asked for a move to the Chigaco brand – now partly run by former OpTic CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez. This request was apparently refused by OpTic, resulting in the 20-year-old “allegedly threatening to bench himself.”

According to CDL Intel, things have now been resolved, with rumored rosters now back in place.

Neither the OpTic LA franchise or Chicago have announced any players for their teams, but according to rumors, they are currently as follows:

  • OpTic LA: Dashy, TJHaly, Kenny, SlasheR, and JKap
  • Chicago: Scump, FormaL, Envoy, Gunless, and Arcitys

Crimsix himself claimed that he and Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow had been ousted from the team, with Dashy apparently aiming to team with FormaL, but this may have now fallen apart.

Call of Duty LeagueImmortals purchased one of the LA franchise spots for the Call of Duty League.

Some teams have already revealed their full or partial rosters, including Minnesota, London and Dallas, with more announcements expected in October.

MrDalekJD shares his biggest wish for Warzone after BOCW Season 1

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
