Team Envy owner, Mike ‘hastr0’ Rufail, has given us an update on Team Envy’s headquarters, and Dallas Empire are already putting it to good use ahead of the inaugural start to the Call of Duty League.
Activision's Call of Duty League is just around the corner and it looks like Dallas Empire are all set for everything that the forthcoming season will throw their way.
Playing under the Team Envy banner, Empire are heading into Minnesota as one of the favorites to take top honors at the end of the season.

Hastr0 first gave Envy’s faithful a glimpse inside the new training facility back in November 2019, when he took his following on a 10-minute tour of the premises.
Teasing a plethora of contemporary features, the facility will even boast a dedicated area where fans will be able to engage with their favorite players.

After going quiet over the holiday season, the Envy CEO announced that the headquarters would house a full production studio (with a render attached to his Tweet) — showing that those who ‘bleed blue’ will get plenty of content back in return for their loyal support.

On January 12, Hastr0 provided fans with a more detailed look inside the almost-complete training grounds. Both Envy’s Overwatch and Call of Duty teams will get their own dedicated space.
Alongside those teams competing in a franchised league, Rufail’s teased that Envy’s CS:GO team will have their own dedicated space — underscoring their ambition to fill out their existing three player roster, which is currently led by Noah ‘Nifty’ Francis.

The Call of Duty grind never stops
Given that the office is nearing completion, members of the Dallas Empire roster have already begun utilizing the training facility.
Both Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal and Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro have already been capitalizing on the state-of-the-art headquarters, after grinding throughout the night. iLLeY stated: “Me and Ant are already putting in that work.”
I was there all morning today on a Sunday and you guys in there grinding at night. Love seeing this.

I will be ‘going into work’ on a daily basis, starting tomorrow, for the first time in seven years. Kind of a crazy feeling

With all of these like-minded individuals all under one roof, chasing the same goal, there is no limit to where Dallas Empire’s ceiling will come. One thing’s for sure, plenty of CDL teams will be envious of their setup.
The Call of Duty League kicks off on January 24, where Empire will face-off against the Chicago Huntsmen and Atlanta FaZe, in what is set to be an explosive first week.
