Former Call of Duty star pro player Marcus ‘MiRx’ Carter has revealed the squad he will be competing with for the upcoming Black Ops 4 competitive season.

MiRx will be teaming up with competitive players Cole ‘ColeChan’ Chancey, Nick ‘Happy’ Suda, Tanner ‘Super’ Bowen, and Joseph ‘TurnUp2eZ’ Sicre.

The roster is actively looking for an organization to represent for the 2019 CoD World League season, which officially kicks off at the CWL Vegas event in early December.

This new squad is a healthy mix of veteran talent and new, young talent. MiRx himself has been competing since 2012 and is best known for his days as a member of the legendary Fariko Impact team that won the Call of Duty Championship in 2013.

He was last seen competing at the CWL Atlanta Open event as a member of Ascendant Gaming during this past WWII season, where he placed 49-64.

MiRx was a member of the legendary Fariko Impact team that claimed victory at the Call of Duty Championship in 2013.

Similarly, ColeChan and Happy have both also been around the competitive scene for a long time, although neither have really enjoyed the success and notoriety that MiRx did in his prime. 

When it comes to youth, Super and TurnUp2eZ are both relative youngsters when it comes to competing. As a member of Lethal Gaming, Super qualified for the recent 2018 CWL Championship, where their squad managed to advance past the group stage and finished 13-16. 

TurnUp, who recently turned 18 and will be eligible to compete for the first time, was formerly a member of eUnited’s Cadet program, but ultimately decided to part ways with the org in hope of finding a new home. 

With CWL Vegas a month away, this roster will have to hurry if they are to secure an agreement with an organization that can fund their trip.

Once they’re there, however, the potential for them to go deep and raise some eyebrows is certainly there.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
