After a short stint in Challengers, Michael ‘MajorManiak’ Szymaniak is returning to the CDL with the Florida Mutineers ahead of Major 4 and Champs.
MajorManiak burst onto the scene as a Search and Destroy player during Black Ops 3, and was part of the Minnesota RØKKR from the start of the Call of Duty: Vanguard season up until April 2022, when they brought in Colt ‘Havok’ McLendon.
As a member of WhateverItTakes and then Shady Kings, MajorManiak placed second in four straight Challengers events and won the CDC Toronto Open with 2Real, Brack, and Neptune.
Florida currently sits at 10th in the CDL standings and is just 10 points outside of the Champs qualifying spots. Now, they’re calling on some AR leadership to make one final push for a CDL 2022 Champs berth.
MajorManiak replaces Davpadie on the Florida Mutineers
Davpadie made a major splash with the Florida Mutineers in his rookie season. The player put his name on the map after defeating OpTic in Major 2 and Major 3. According to BreakingPoint, DavPadie had a 1.03 overall KD in Vanguard which ranked 19th among all players.
The Florida Mutineers’ Twitter account recognized Davpadie’s success over OpTic by saying “if we need to beat OpTic on LAN again we know who to call.”
Former Mutineers SMG Vivid recently “jumped ship” and joined the Boston Breach in place of another standout rookie in Capsidal.
The current Florida roster includes Owakening, Skyz, and MajorManiak. There is no official indication of who the fourth member will be but be sure to follow our full Rostermania coverage.
