Ones to watch at CDL Chicago
Eight of the twelve best Call of Duty teams will be competing this weekend. Here is a look at some of the players to watch out for across the three days:
Bradley “Wuskin” Marshall
Wuskin has been a key player for the London Royal Ravens this season and will look to continue his impressive form this weekend. Despite only being among the competitive scene for a few years, his intelligent play-style stands out from the rest. Keep your eyes peeled as he looks to help the Royal Ravens towards their first event win this year.
Chris “Simp” Lehr
Simp shot onto the professional scene last year and found himself on a top squad. It didn’t take him long to get used to the top level as he achieved MVP at the 2019 Call of Duty World League Championship. The man has already achieved what many pros have been trying to achieve their whole careers. He will be a key player to watch on Atlanta FaZe as they look to add another trophy to the cabinet this year.
Seth “Scump” Abner
2017 world champion, Scump, has been at the top of the game since the beginning. Despite much talk about his retirement, the 24-year-old is still looking to add to his impressive list of achievements. His unbelievable skill and ability with the sub-machine gun makes him one to watch as Chicago Huntsmen look for another win.
Indervir “iLLeY” Dhaliwal
The 18-year-old wonderkid found himself on a starting position in the Dallas Empire squad in his first year of competing. He has continued to impress everyone with his in-game awareness and raw talent . It is evident that he is hungry for silverware and will no doubt be giving it his all this weekend in search for a trophy. Keep a lookout!
