OpTic Chicago will officially be making a roster change this offseason as SMG star Envoy announced that he is an unrestricted free agent heading into the 2022 CDL season.
Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon is coming off one of his worst seasons since entering the pro-scene, even though he had magical moments. He was last in the team with a 1.02 K/D and had a lackluster performance at CDL Champs, dropping a 0.89 K/D.
OpTic as a team failed to reach the Grand Finals of a tournament this year for the first time in the org’s history.
Envoy tweeted out that he is an unrestricted free agent, seemingly hinting at the fact he’s looking for a new squad. However, it is unclear whether he was dropped from the team or decided to walk away on his own.
Unrestricted F/A for the 2022 CDL Season.

OpTic Chicago and Envoy part ways
After CDL Champs, OpTic Chicago hosted a press conference where the team talked about the season as a whole and what went wrong at Champs. Envoy mentioned that he had a poor season to his standards, but fans were still hopeful that the Greenwall would stick it out.
As for now, the community is frantically looking for answers. Neither CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez or any of the other OpTic players have made a comment on the roster decision. However, it is not guaranteed that this will be the last roster move the team makes this offseason.
With the recent news that the Dallas Empire dropped Ian ‘Porter’ Crimsix, fans were fantasizing over an OpTic and Crim reunion. Now with Envoy leaving the squad, there is a better chance of this happening. The dominoes have fallen and 2022 rostermania is in full swing.
Here’s OpTic’s current roster at the time of writing:
- Seth ‘Scump’ Abner
- Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper
- Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell
