New York’s Call of Duty franchise have announced the fourth and fifth professional players to join their franchise for the Modern Warfare season, unveiling Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris and Dillon ‘Attach’ Price as their latest acquisitions.
It’s been a frantic week for the NYC franchise, as they announce the roster that will represent them in the inaugural season of the franchised CoD league, which is scheduled to kick off in 2020.
The team have already announced the acquisitions of Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto, Donovan ‘Temp’ Laroda, and Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi, and now the Englishman Zer0 and former World Champion Attach are the latest players to sign on to the project.
In a pair of tweets sent out by New York on Friday, September 26, the franchise confirmed they were happy to bring in the two stars, calling them a “welcome addition” to the team.
Zer0 appeared in a video message, stating: “Ever since New York was announced as a spot, I had to come here. It was my desired destination. I hope you guys continue to support me as a player, support the organization, support the roster we put together. It’s a really good roster, and I’m excited to be a part of it. Hopefully, we bring some championships home for New York.”
That was followed hours later with the announcement of Attach, who expressed his excitement at teaming with a “stacked” lineup of players.
“I chose to play in New York for the 2020 Call of Duty season because it’s one of the greatest, if not the greatest, cities in the world,” he said in a video. “The lineup we have on our team is stacked. A lot of my good friends and super talented players. The support staff around us – coach Bobble and JP – are some of the best in the esports business. I can’t wait for all you guys to come on this journey with us, as we try to win as many championships as we can for this city.
He became a World Champion at 18 years old, won the 2018 Esports Play of the Year, and was a 2019 All-Star.

Zer0 is a veteran of the Call of Duty scene, first competing back in 2015. Following a spell at Splyce and Red Reserve, the Brit signed on with FaZe Clan in April 2019, representing the legendary organization their CWL Pro League campaign, with the squad finishing third at Playoffs, but a disappointing 13-16 at CWL Champs.
With the move, the 22-year-old will link up again with ZooMaa, who were teammates on FaZe’s roster throughout much of the Black Ops 4 season, and now heading into Modern Warfare and the franchised league.
As for Attach, his exemplary resume speaks for itself. Since winning the 2015 Call of Duty Chamionship with Denial Esports, he’s been considered one of the best players in the scene, even when he had to go out on loan to Evil Geniuses from FaZe midway through the 2019 season.
He too will be reuniting with ZooMaa after a brief spell apart, reforming a powerful duo that led FaZe for over four years.
