The New York Subliners have released Doug ‘Censor’ Martin and Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi as the off-season free agency continues to see multiple Call of Duty League teams making big roster changes.

CDL teams are looking forward to the 2021 season that will feature a change to 4v4. The structural change calls for orgs to field one less player per team, atop of any other changes planned to improve their lineups.

Donovan ‘Temp’ Laroda and substitute Nick ‘Happy’ Suda had previously announced they were departing the Subliners. That now makes it four players that the New York org has parted ways with since free agency began.

“Wish you guys nothing but the best next year, appreciate all the effort you put in throughout (Modern Warfare) and the memories,” Subliners coach Revan said.

“Even though we got our time torched daily I always looked forward to 2PM scrims. Was a rough start to the year but we worked hard to turn it around and we did. Thank you.”

Temp and Accuracy were a part of the Subliners starting lineup throughout the CDL. The team began the inaugural season dead last during the Launch Weekend, but made a turnaround by the end of the year to get first place when they hosted the online New York Home Series.

Before joining the Subliners, Censor went on an all-out campaign to get picked up by a CDL team and was successfully able to get signed by the Subliners as a substitute player.

Now the New York-based team dropped notable members of both their starting lineup and talent pool of subs.

NEW YORK SUBLINERS DROPPED PLAYERS

  • Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi
  • Donovan ‘Temp’ Laroda
  • Doug ‘Censor’ Martin
  • Nick ‘Happy’ Suda

The move comes on the heels of other teams like the London Royal Ravens and the Paris Legion off-loading their entire lineups a few days after the free agency window opened.

We’ve already seen star players like Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell and James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks released from LA OpTic and Dallas Empire, respectively.

Any new contracts for these free agents can’t happen until September 14, per CDL rules, so keep up with @DexertoINTEL and the Rostermania hub for all the latest.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
