The Call of Duty Minnesota franchise has announced their fourth signing on October 10, Alex 'Alexx' Carpenter from the United Kingdom and former Denial/Reciprocity player.
The Minnesota franchise for the upcoming Call of Duty League has now signed their fourth player. Alexx joins Justin ‘SiLLY’ Fargo-Palmer, Adam ‘Assault’ Garcia, Adam ‘GodRx’ Brown and coach Brian ‘Saintt’ Baroska up north. CoD MN now has four filled slots, with three open slots remaining.

The announcement video shows Alexx viewing the previous Minnesota roster announcement on his phone, before promptly asking Siri for directions to Minnesota. Alexx joins other UK players Zack 'Zed' Denyer and Trei 'Zer0' Morris on rosters outside of the CoD London franchise, with Zed joining Paris and Zer0 joining New York.
Alexx, a 20-year-old player from England, had a breakout summer with the UK roster fielded by Team Reciprocity. They finished 7th/8th in the CoD Pro League regular season, finished 4th in the Pro League playoffs, and then 7th/8th at the CoD World Championships.
After establishing themselves as a top ten team in the world, it makes sense that the services of the Reciprocity pros would be sought out by the new franchises. Teammates Dylan 'dylan' Henderson and Bradley 'wuskin' Marshall are staying home, having joined the CoD London franchise. Zed and Denholm 'Denz' Taylor have joined CoD Paris. And now Alexx has gone across the Atlantic to join the Minnesota franchise.
The Minnesota franchise is already jumping into the content game with a behind-the-scenes podcast on YouTube called Building CoD MN.
