New York, say hello to the New York Subliners, the official Call of duty World League Franchise for the Big Apple.
Activision Blizzard’s freshly franchised Call of Duty League has gotten plenty of attention this week as more organizations reveal the branding of the teams for their new league. This week, ANDBOX unveiled the branding of the newest Call of Duty League team for New York, now officially known as the New York Subliners, a nod to the subway systems and grit that make New York so iconic.
ANDBOX is a multi-franchise esports organization that also owns the New York Excelsior, a team from Activison’s other franchised league, the Overwatch League. The brand new team left nothing to mystery and also gave fans a look at both their staff and their roster.
The team has signed Thomas “ZooMaa” Paparatto and Donovan “Temp” Laroda for SMGS, Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi and Trei “Zer0” Morris for its AR slots, Dillon “Attach” Price as a flex player and Doug “Censor” Martin as a substitute. On staff will be John “Revan” Boble as head coach, JohnPaul “JP Krez” Krez as an analyst and finally includes player manager Adam “Adam” Eckel.
In spectacular ANDBOX fashion, the team will host the Subliners New York Open on November 1st through the 3rd. This new Call of Duty tournament will be the first played on the most recent installment in the series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and will offer a $10k prize pool. The finals will be streamed on the Subliners’ Twitch channel on November 3rd, so be prepared for some high level action in the newest Call of Duty title.
