Call of Duty scene braces for the new franchised league.

With at least nine franchise teams joining the new-look Call of Duty League, and all rosters expected to be required to have between 7-10 players under contract, rumors and transfers have been flying thick and fast.

Now, it appears OverMedia’s new Toronto franchise may be looking elsewhere for another flex star, with Temp confirming his future may lie away from the northern organization despite expectations Splyce would be retaining their current roster.

MLGTemp could be on the move ahead of the new franchised league.

The 2019 season wasn’t all smooth sailing for Splyce as they looked to cement their foothold in the North American CoD scene, a step forward that began by recruiting Temp and fellow Echo Fox teammate Ulysses ‘AquA’ Silva.

The former Fox duo joined Splyce veteran Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley, but the outfit just couldn’t find major success. Two mid-table finishes awaited the roster at Anaheim and London, and the team was punted early in the lower bracket of the Pro League Playoffs at CWL Finals.

MLGTemp had a mixed year with Splyce.

Temp’s announcement doesn’t necessarily mean his tale with OverMedia and their new Toronto franchise is at an end though. Due to the restricted nature of his free agency, his current org has the chance to match any offer within seven days, as per league guidelines.

Considering the rest of the Splyce roster that finished top 16 at CoD Champs have yet to announce they would be looking to move away from the newly founded Toronto team, there’s a good chance Temp is just testing the waters ahead of the franchise league.

Other free agents are already jumping at the opportunity to team-up with the Splyce star. Former Midnight Esports player Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte was the first to issue an invite to Temp after the free agency announcement: “Let’s build.”

Parasite announced his free agency nearly a fortnight ago, but may still be in negotiations to find a home for the 2020 season. The former world champion won’t be the only player eyeing Temp as a potential teammate, with a host of players looking for new homes ahead of 2020.

OverMedia’s Toronto team is one of eight confirmed host cities to play in the inaugural CDL, which will begin with a home-and-away format from 2020.

Atlanta, Dallas, Florida, New York, Paris, and Minnesota have all been confirmed as host sites, while Los Angeles will boast two rival teams in the opening season.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
