The Toronto Ultra released six of the 10 players on its inaugural Call of Duty League roster today.
The Ultra finished seventh overall in the regular season of the CDL with a match record of 11-13. The team then made it to the fourth round of the CDL playoffs before being eliminated by the London Royal Ravens, an eventual top-four team.
Loony and Classic are Call of Duty veterans who have been competing at the pro level for several years. MettalZ and Lucky are younger Spanish players who made names for themselves last year with Heretics and played briefly for Toronto this season. Brack and Mayhem, meanwhile, are both up-and-coming players who couldn’t crack the starting roster this season.
When the CDL announced it was changing back to four-vs-four for the 2021 season in Black Ops Cold War, many players knew their time with CDL teams would be coming to an end. This kind of gutting of rosters could continue around the league.
It’s believed that the six released players will be free agents, able to sign with any team for next season.
