The Flordia-based franchise which will compete in the 2020 Call of Duty League has officially announced that they will be called ‘Florida Mutineers’ and given fans a first look at their brand new logo.

The inaugural CDL season is officially set to kick off in 2020, with 12 teams competing in the first franchised format in the history of the popular console esport.

Each team is based in a city somewhere in North America and Europe, and the Florida franchise has become the latest organization to announce their name and logo, unveiling the Florida Mutineers branding in an announcement on Monday, October 28.

Flordia MutineersThe Florida Mutineers have employed a pirate theme.

The team, which is operated by Misfits Gaming, says that they are inspired by the “history of pirates off the Flordia coast,” and much like the swashbuckling scoundrels of old, the team is “relentless, unapologetic, determined and always play their own way in pursuit of victory.

“You might picture sunshine and oranges when you think of Flordia, but we like to look at things differently,” the team writes on the official CDL website. “The people of Florida forge their own patch, we are determined, adventurous and value community above all things.”

The team’s logo looks similar to the iconic Davy Jones character from the Pirates of the Carribean franchise, which was based on the superstition of Davy Jones’ Locker, another term for the bottom of the ocean where ships would end up if they were to sink.

The team makes use of teal and orange as their primary colors, and will be using ‘Fear the Deep’ as their mantra throughout their CDL campaign.

Florida Mutineers have become the eighth team to unveil their branding, following on from Toronto Ultras and New York Subliners who showed off their new names and logos last week. Only Seattle, Chicago, Minnesota and Paris have yet to reveal their official names.

While the Misfits-owned team has announced their branding, they have yet to confirm the acquisition of any players, although a clue at the end of their announcement video which reads “Stay tuned,” may be a hint that announcements about their final lineup will arrive soon.

FaZe Blaze’s 153-round Cold War Zombies run ends in disaster – again

FaZe Clan’s Lucas ‘Blaze’ Mosing’s title run in Black Ops Cold War Zombies was clicking and flowing incredible well until it all came crashing to a halt – marking the second time in one week a promising run collapsed on him.

Blaze has been gunning through Zombies with the world-record for Duos fixed in his sights. The target is currently 309 rounds; while completely plausible for players like Blaze, the world hasn’t been on his side during recent attempts.

One of the biggest factors of a successful Zombies run comes down to getting into the right flow with your teammate to grind past the later rounds.

His Ring of Fire-centric run with Twitch streamer GhostzyTV successfully got them over 150 rounds with their setup between the Penthouse and the levels below mowing rows of the undead as they came up.

The game was clicking, the rounds were rolling past, and the streamer as well as his chat were hyped on the progression that was unfolding. Then it all ended.

Shortly after, Blaze took to Twitter to reveal what had happened that suddenly made the Twitch stream shut down.

“My internet just went out.. we were at round 153,” he said. That quickly concluded all the synergy that he and Ghostzy built up in the round.

Shortly before the internet when out, Blaze was really impressed with the communication between the two streamers that made the rounds fly by.

Though it was all for naught, with the duo just needing a few more levels to tie up their personal-best of 164 rounds they notched just days before. However, unlike that attempt which ended in a game crash, this time it only took them two days to get to that ballpark instead of five.

That probably added a bit more salt to the wound since the two streamers were breezing through some of the rounds en route to the coveted 309-mark.

Blaze is nothing if not persistent in Black Ops Cold War Zombies, so there’s no doubt he’ll be able to replicate those numbers again – though hopefully without any game crashes or internet outages.
