5 Best Players in the Call of Duty League so Far
By Max Mallow
The Call of Duty League is back! The league is set to return Friday, April 10, with the Dallas Home Series.
Starting this week, the league is shifting all regular season matches to an online competition and broadcast format. For the Dallas Home Series, eight teams will compete online — including the Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, Florida Mutineers, Los Angeles Guerrillas, Minnesota Røkkr, Paris Legion, Seattle Surge, and Toronto Ultra.
Before the Call of Duty Leagues gets underway, let’s take a look at the five best players in the Call of Duty League so far this season.
5. Adam “GodRx” Brown, Minnesota Røkkr
The Minnesota Røkkr is the surprise franchise of the inaugural season. It’s a team that’s proven hard work, drive, and dedication can bring a squad to the top. At the forefront of the squad is GodRx. He’s proven his skills are top caliber and helped get valuable victories for the Røkkr.
4. McArthur “Cellium” Jovel, Atlanta FaZe
Cellium is up for most improved player of the season. Fans and experts alike knew he was talented last year, but he’s put all the pieces together on an Atlanta FaZe team that’s stacked with talent. The sky's the limit for Cellium and this roster.
3. Bradley “Wuskin” Marshall, London Royal Ravens
Wuskin rejoined his twin brother Matthew “Skrapz” Marshall on the Royal Ravens. The team hasn’t hit its peak yet — with a 4-4 record and in seventh-place — but Wuskin has cemented himself as a top player in the CDL. If London wants to make a push into the top four, Wuskin will be at the forefront of that assault.
2. Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson, Chicago Huntsmen
Arcitys finally achieved a career goal last year when he won the Call of Duty World League Championship with eUnited. Parting ways with his twin brother Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson, Arcitys joined up with the Chicago Huntsmen and Call of Duty legends Matthew “FormaL” Piper and Seth “Scump” Abner. It’s hard to stand out as a slayer when playing alongside those names, but Arcitys consistently performs and is a rock for the team.
1. Chris “Simp” Lehr, Atlanta FaZe
There’s few, if any, arguments to be made that Simp isn’t the best player in the Call of Duty League. He won a world championship in his rookie season before joining the Atlanta FaZe alongside teammate Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris. Simp led Atlanta to a home series win becoming the only team to defend home turf so far in the CDL. He’s consistently at the top of the scoreboard dropping the most kills each game.
