Professional Call of Duty player Thomas ‘Call of Duty history, consistently placing near the top, building strong rosters and competing well against the North Americans.

Despite this, Tommey found himself struggling to get on a team for the inaugural season of the city-based franchised league, with just one potential offer until James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks reached out a helping hand.

During a Twitch stream after the announcement, Tommey said that he initially had an offer on a starting roster which later fell through and turned into something different, but responses to a tweet from Clay completely turned his situation around.

“Clay tweeted asking who’s still a free agent and wants to be a sub for Dallas, and a s***load of people started tagging me,” he said. “He DM’ed me saying ‘there’s no way, you’re our sub’ basically. And it pretty much went from there.”

Tommey then went on to explain what this means for his next season, and what followed his initial DM’s with the only other player to attend every million-dollar event.

“What they want from a sub is different from most others, but I said I’m definitely down for this one. A couple of days go by and Hastr0 (Mike Rufail, Envy, Dallas Fuel and Dallas Empire CEO) gives me a call, Clay and that say they’d like me as a substitute, and I signed the next day.”

Tommey later confirmed that he currently still lives in Houston but he’s open to moving to Dallas if it’s required of him and the team.

The full Dallas Empire roster so far is:

  • Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter
  • James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks
  • Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland
  • Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro
  • Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal
  • Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren (Substitute)

The Dallas starting roster has already won a bunch of online tournaments since the release of Modern Warfare, so prospects are looking good for the Texas-based team heading in to season one of the CDL.

Best Krig 6 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality. 

This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate. 

It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick. 

In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex
  • Infantry Compensator 
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Foregrip
  • 40 RND
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock 

By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance. 

Combine this with the 60% reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator and you’ll be able to snap onto the most well-hidden foes. After all, visibility remains a big problem in Black Ops Cold War, so having any attachments that help improve this is huge. 

Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances. 

Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.

The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.

Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs. 

Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights. 

While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
