Inclement weather in the U.S. and a myriad of airfare problems could have a big effect on the Call of Duty League’s Major Two this weekend.

Players from multiple teams based out of Texas were met with some big-time hassles while attempting to depart from Dallas yesterday on their way to the league’s Major Two event in Boston, Massachusetts, which begins tomorrow.

The rosters of OpTic Texas, New York Subliners, Seattle Surge, and Minnesota RØKKR all had their flights delayed or canceled, forcing swift changes to travel plans. Vegas Legion’s Clayster also faced similar issues with his luggage being left behind.

But the struggle did not end there. After changing or finding new flights, Texas, Seattle, and Minnesota’s luggage all did not follow the teams to Boston, forcing the players to scramble yet again.

“OpTic, Surge, RØKKR, and Clay Target trip?” said OpTic analyst JPKrez on Twitter. “About to show up on main stage with Hulk and Iron Man t-shirts.”

Currently, the entire New York Subliners roster is still in Texas and attempting to figure out their next course of action. It’s possible that they may be forced to participate in the LAN event online from their facility in Dallas, if the league would allow it.

Several CDL teams base their player operations out of Texas for online qualifiers and living arrangements during the season, largely due to the high-level internet speeds and having a centralized location for online gameplay. But the weather in Texas had other ideas for the squads trying to make it on time to Boston for the Major this weekend.

CDL’s Major Two is scheduled to kick off tomorrow at 12:30pm CT, with Minnesota vs. New York. But as both of those teams have been affected by the travel situation, the league may have to consider rescheduling or at least postponing the match.
