The newest team introduced into the Call of Duty League is none other than the Minnesota Rokkr. The WISE Ventures ownership group took to Twitter for the announcement of the name and logo of the Minnesota-based franchise. The Minnesota Rokkr logo sports a medieval knight-like figure along with black, purple and blue colors.
According to a statement on the Call of Duty League website:
“Røkkr is an old Norse word for “twilight” — the moment between day and night when the last light fades beyond the horizon — commonly associated with Ragnarøkkr (Ragnarok), the end of the world or ‘Twilight of the Gods' in Norse mythology…
The logo is a mysterious helmeted figure emerging from shadows of deep purple and black, ready to join the mythical battle. The glint of blue along the right side and horns represents moonlight, both lighting the figure and glowing intensely from within the blue eye. These elements are inspired by the lore of the north and a fierceness embodied by our team’s players.”

This unveiling was accompanied by a cinematic, which includes gameplay from the newest installment to the Call of Duty franchise. Minnesota’s newest esports franchise has already established its full roster and head coach prior to the announcement. This roster includes Adam “Assault” Garica, Adam “GodRx” Brown, Justin “SiLLY” Fargo, Alex “Alexx” Carpenter, Obaid “Asim” Asim, Kaden “Exceed” Stockdale and Devin “TTiny” Robinson. With former professional player, Brian “Saintt” Baroska, at the helm as the Rokkr’s head coach, the Minnesota Call of Duty franchise is looking forward to a successful endeavor in the Call of Duty League amongst some other highly recognizable names and franchises.
Stay tuned for further coverage of the Call of Duty League, which will debut on January 24th of 2020.
