Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren will appear on the next episode of the CoDCast following his removal from Splyce’s Call of Duty: WWII roster.

The Call of Duty: WWII season started strong for Tommey and Splye as the European team achieved a second place finish at the first major event of the year, CWL Dallas.

Unfortunately things quickly deteriorated with a 9th – 12th at CWL New Orleans and 13th – 16th at CWL Atlanta, both of which meant that they finished out of the money.

The CWL Pro League didn’t go much better as they missed out on the Playoffs but an incredible run through the losers bracket at CWL Birmingham showed what they were capable of when they were on form as they secured another second place.

But that high was followed by their biggest low of the year with a disappointing 17th – 20th at CWL Seattle and the team eventually made the decision to bench Tommey and look for a new player for Season 2 of the CWL Pro League.

The move came as a surprise as some people believed Tommey was the strongest player on the roster over the course of the year. Now those people will get to hear from the man himself as he will be joining NAMELESS on the next episode of the CoDCast.

It will be interesting to hear Tommey’s thoughts on his removal as well as his predictions for what Splyce will do in the future. Fans might also find out once and for all whether he will be playing for a team in Season 2 or sitting it out.

Also appearing on the show will be CWL commentators Joey ‘MerK’ Deluca and Clint ‘Maven’ Evans along with eUnited’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks.

The CoDCast continues to go from strength to strength and the next episode is sure to get even more exposure after NAMELESS officially announced his retirement on May 1st.

The show will air live on NAMELESS’ Twitch channel on May 2nd at 10pm Eastern.

The reigning Call of Duty League Champions, Dallas Empire have signed 23-year-old veteran Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson as their first substitute for the upcoming 2021 campaign.

FeLo is set to join the Empire as a substitute player after playing for Triumph. A specialist in Search & Destroy, he’s expected to bolster the team’s prowess in the stringent game type now that the league is moving to a 4v4 format.

“Bringing FeLo to the team was a natural move for us as we prepare to repeat our championship run from the League’s first season,” Empire’s Head Coach Ray ‘Rambo’ Lussier said. “He’s a world-class Search & Destroy player and helped us prepare for the Grand Finals last year, so we’re expecting great things from him.”

Years ago, FeLo made a name for himself online as one of the best S&D players, and the Team Envy-owned org is relying on him to bring a new type of heat to Dallas’ heavy-hitting squad.

“Blessed to be a part of such a great organization, going to help the boys in any way I can this year,” FeLo said of the announcement. “Thank you guys for all the love.”

During the 2020 North American Challengers Final, Triumph managed to claim the top prize of $50,000 while only dropping one map of S&D during their playoff run to first place.

While the Empire had one of the strongest overall offenses in the CDL last year, their Search & Destroy was a glaring point in their game that would look shaky against the best in the league.

By signing FeLo, Empire gives themselves some flexibility to switch out Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland or Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter for someone that has a wealth of experience navigating S&D.

The CDL 2020 champs just got stronger by adding S&D specialist FeLo.

Even after departing with James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks due to the new Black Ops Cold War format, the Empire’s starting roster has to be considered among the strongest in the league.

Now Rambo will have to find the best ways to maneuver his five-man squad when going up against tough competitors like Atlanta FaZe, OpTic Chicago, and more.

FeLo has signed with Dallas Empire, but the move is pending league approval.

Dallas Empire’s 2021 CDL Roster:

  • Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro
  • Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland
  • Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal
  • Ian ‘C6’ Porter
  • Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson (Substitute)
