Since signing on H3CZ as co-CEO of COD operations Chicago has been rather quiet on the news front. Their roster is still involved in massive speculation as they are being linked to Seth “Scump” Abner and Matthew “Formal” Piper. Chicago COD fans are waiting with bated breath for their roster and branding releases
Atlanta is another team that has been very quiet about roster news with even the original rumors dying down. They have however hinted to a countdown of some sort starting on the 5th of October. Whether this countdown is for the game, roster, or branding releases is yet to be seen.
The countdown begins… ⏳🍑

We registered multiple team names, domains and branding assets for our Call of Duty esports team. You guys can keep speculating. Just know that our launch will be pretty epic.

A trademark was filed for the name today. Its Esports related, but I can’t find any connection to @MisfitsGG.

London has had a big week two weeks with the finalization of its roster and the announcement of its branding release. They filled out their starting five with big-name talents Jordan “Jurd” Crowley and Rhys “Rated” Price. These two will be a perfect complement to what was already amazing top three of Bradley “Wuskin” Marshall, Mathew “Skrapz” Marshall, and Dylan “Dylan” Henderson.
I’m so happy & excited to announce I’ll be playing for @LondonCOD for next years franchise league was the only team I wanted to represent & it happened, back with Matt to finish our unfinished business & first time teaming with Jurd, Dylan & Wusk theres only one thing on my mind pic.twitter.com/0A7A8l8wGc

Los Angeles (Immortals)
There has been nothing but radio silence from Optic after the signing of Eric “Muddawg” Sanders from 100Thieves so we will have to wait for official communications from the team. There are rumors that Brandon “Dashy” Otell and Kenny “Kenny” Willaims will be heading to ply their trade in LA.
New York is another team that had a huge two weeks with the announcement that the had signed their full roster. Their roster includes Trei “Zer0” Morris, Donovan “Temp” Laroda, Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi, Thomas “ZooMaa” Paparatto, and Dillion “Attach” Price. This is a very strong roster that I think can compete right off the bat with the powerhouse that is London COD. It’s hard to tell how competitive they will be without every team announced, but as of right now they are looking very strong. With Temp’s ability to slay and Acuaary and ZooMaas to be consistent threats, they have a very balanced team.
The NYC boys finally in one place.
We've got a ton of experience, the fans and New York behind us.
Expect great things. pic.twitter.com/W0V58xVgcB

Paris was another team that was able to announce their whole roster in the last two weeks, however, their roster is considerably less impressive than New York’s and London’s. Their roster includes the names Matthew “KiSMET” Tinsley, Timothy “Phantomz” Landis, Conrad “Shockz” Rymarek, Denholm “Denz” Taylor, and Luke “Louqa” Rigas. Paris was always going to have a hard time acquiring top-end talent from the American and European markets due to location, but this is a poor attempt. Their team consists of no heavy hitters that can make up for the lack of quality amongst the players on the roster. This leaves them very weak and I think they will have a very hard season ahead.

En attente de validation par la ligue

Seattle is another team that has had no official announcement about rosters or branding in the last two weeks. however, a Twitter interaction between James “Clayster” Eubanks and Ian “CrimSix” Porter Talking about Seattle weather. While this is little more than probable Twitter bait by these two COD legends, we as fans can’t but help to be somewhat excited at the prospect of this team in Seattle.
Light mist every hour, maybe 50-65 degrees.

Los Angeles (Kroenke)
Again this LA franchise has absolutely no public communications and has had very little rumors about rosters and branding.
Ever since Minnesota has announced their starting three roster players more roster moves have been kept rather quiet. They have also been keeping quiet about possible branding ideas. Brian Saint, head coach of Minnesota, took to Twitter to compliment his current team and explain how they can be effective together.
What makes our first 3 players a great core team?
