NRG and Team Summertime content creator Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards hosted a $5,000 charity throwback tournament for Call of Duty: Ghosts that featured huge names like Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price, Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat, and more. Everything you need to catch up on the action can be found below.

The Call of Duty offseason can only mean two things – lots of roster changes and a bunch of throwback tournaments featuring past titles in the FPS series.

A week after hosting a successful Black Ops 4 tourney, Hitch and his Team Summertime were back at it again, this time putting together a CoD: Ghosts competition that featured some of the biggest names in the community.

All of the details from this event can be found below. From the official stream to catch up with, to a rundown on the final results, the format, and plenty more.

Hitch’s throwback Ghosts tourney results

The day of action started with all of the big names ready to duke it out. Unfortunately for some, the day came to a fairly quick end. From Mochilla’s team to Slasher’s squad, many veterans were knocked out of the running early into the event.

On the opposite end of things, the likes of Envoy, Scump, and ACHES, all helped lead their teams through the upper bracket. Ultimately, it was ACHES, Loony, Pacman, and Goonjar that fought all the way through to the Grand Finals without dropping a series.

They met Kenny’s team in the final round of the day, once ACHES was woken up from his power nap…

When everything was finally said and done, it was Kuavo’s team that took out the first series with a 3-1 win. However, things couldn’t end any other way than a game five, round 11 in the second and final series. After a long day of competition, it was ACHES’ team that just barely took out the final round win to steal the show.

When was Hitch’s throwback Ghosts tourney?

This event took place on Wednesday, October 7, having kicked off at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET. Given how many teams were involved and how long they often had to wait between rounds, the event went on through the entire day.

CDL Champs Dallas Empire sign FeLo as substitute

The reigning Call of Duty League Champions, Dallas Empire have signed 23-year-old veteran Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson as their first substitute for the upcoming 2021 campaign.

FeLo is set to join the Empire as a substitute player after playing for Triumph. A specialist in Search & Destroy, he’s expected to bolster the team’s prowess in the stringent game type now that the league is moving to a 4v4 format.

“Bringing FeLo to the team was a natural move for us as we prepare to repeat our championship run from the League’s first season,” Empire’s Head Coach Ray ‘Rambo’ Lussier said. “He’s a world-class Search & Destroy player and helped us prepare for the Grand Finals last year, so we’re expecting great things from him.”

Years ago, FeLo made a name for himself online as one of the best S&D players, and the Team Envy-owned org is relying on him to bring a new type of heat to Dallas’ heavy-hitting squad.

“Blessed to be a part of such a great organization, going to help the boys in any way I can this year,” FeLo said of the announcement. “Thank you guys for all the love.”

During the 2020 North American Challengers Final, Triumph managed to claim the top prize of $50,000 while only dropping one map of S&D during their playoff run to first place.

While the Empire had one of the strongest overall offenses in the CDL last year, their Search & Destroy was a glaring point in their game that would look shaky against the best in the league.

By signing FeLo, Empire gives themselves some flexibility to switch out Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland or Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter for someone that has a wealth of experience navigating S&D.

The CDL 2020 champs just got stronger by adding S&D specialist FeLo.

Even after departing with James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks due to the new Black Ops Cold War format, the Empire’s starting roster has to be considered among the strongest in the league.

Now Rambo will have to find the best ways to maneuver his five-man squad when going up against tough competitors like Atlanta FaZe, OpTic Chicago, and more.

FeLo has signed with Dallas Empire, but the move is pending league approval.

Dallas Empire’s 2021 CDL Roster:

  • Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro
  • Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland
  • Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal
  • Ian ‘C6’ Porter
  • Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson (Substitute)
