Activision Blizzard's announcement to franchise the 2020 season of the Call of Duty League was monumental. There will be 12 teams in total to start, and already roster announcements are coming out. The Dallas Call of Duty team owned by Envy Gaming has announced two top-class players this week.

First, Dallas is bringing two-time Call of Duty World Champion James "Clayster" Eubanks on to the roster. Clayster is no small ordeal and has performed on teams such as eUnited and Denial Esports taking home Championship and MVP titles. Despite his 1,400-day championship drought, he came back with eUnited and claimed his second CoD World Championship.

The second teammate to be joining Clayster on Dallas' team is none other than the boy wonder, Anthony "Shotzzy" Cuevas-Castro. His age held him back from competing in CWL events, but his performance on Black Ops 4 was not unnoticed. Before Call of Duty, he built a reputation for himself in Halo and competed in the 2018 Halo World Championship. Shottzy recognizes his freshness to the scene and stated, "I know it's a big risk for a team to take a chance on an unproven player like me, but I'm gonna show everyone what I'm capable of."

Dallas will be announcing a new member of its roster every day this week, so fans won't be left begging for details for too long. Envy Gaming is a long-standing organization in esports and has a bevy of championship titles under their belt. Their Overwatch League team, the Dallas Fuel, has been a moderately successful endeavor and having teams from multiple esports under one organization is a solid long term investment.
