In the golden age of social media, even Call of Duty League franchises are getting in on the hottest memes to roast their opponents – now, New York Subliners have made Dallas Empire their latest victim, with help from baby Yoda.

The evolution of the baby Yoda meme came from the release of The Mandalorian – a Disney+ exclusive series based in the Star Wars universe, set before the emergence of the First Order.

The series features an alien baby that many believe to be a younger Yoda, which the internet immediately fell in love with. It went on to become the basis of one of the funniest current meme formats in the following days, and now CDL franchise New York Subliners are using it to their advantage.

Instagram: New York SublinersThe New York Subliners are one of 12 teams involved in the opening season of the franchised Call of Duty League.

After the fallout of the situation between Dallas Empire and player/analyst Charlie ‘MuTeX’ Saouma, in which Mutex was kicked from the team due to inappropriate language used on-stream, many fans of Dallas and Call of Duty, in general, had a lot to say.

Now, though, CDL opponents New York Subliners have tweeted a short clip from The Mandalorian, in which a persistent baby Yoda keeps hitting a switch despite a guard’s attempts to stop him. They have overdubbed the switch hits with Mutex’s speech he made on stream after being kicked – with hilarious results.

“Message to Dallas Empire, I appreciate the opportunity,” starts the recording, before being ‘shut off’. “Because good f**king luck finding anyone better than me, genuinely.”

The tweet, captioned “Hastr0 be like”, immediately took off, with fans loving the drama that was unfolding, amassing hundreds of retweets and likes shortly after being posted.

One person, though, wasn’t a fan of the tweet and immediately bit back. Dallas’ James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks said, “First time being a social media manager?” After fans responded roasting him in return, he followed up with a simple “Guess it’s hilarious, carry on.”

He went on to explain that he didn’t think it was funny because “someone lost their job.”

Based on the overall reaction to the tweet, it seems that Clay isn’t joined by many in thinking that it wasn’t a funny tweet.

Whether you think it’s funny, unprofessional or otherwise, it’s clear that things are starting to heat up and these teams must be itching to get at each other on the battlefield when the first event of the year arrives in Minnesota on January 24-26.

Activision-Blizzard has announced the first set of Black Ops Cold War competitive settings ahead of the Call of Duty League 2021 season, with more tweaks and changes expected to come as time goes on.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has officially released around the world now. There’s still a couple of months until the next Call of Duty League season is expected to kick off though, with a full schedule yet to be announced.

However, to get the ball rolling, a list of all the competitive settings has been revealed. Naturally, it sets the rules for the upcoming season and includes everything from maps and modes to more nuanced things such as restrictions and bans.

Keep in mind, though, that these rules aren’t permanent. They are subject to change as time goes on and feedback from players is taken on board. Still, they have to start somewhere, and the first draft will serve as the foundation ahead of the upcoming season.
