The Dallas Empire Call of Duty franchise, owned by Team Envy, recently announced Thomas “Tommey” Trewren and Charlie “MuTeX” Saouma as their substitute players for the 2020 season. They join a highly talented team featuring veterans Ian “Crimsix” Porter and James “Clayster” Eubanks.
Tommey takes the leap
Tommey remains one of the most popular and successful European Call of Duty players of all time. His impressive career spans nearly 10 years and he has competed in 82 tournaments. The Englishman has bagged himself over $160,000 in prize money and continues to compete at the highest level.
In an official press release from Dallas Empire it reveals the following: “Tommey will relocate to Dallas later this year to prepare for the upcoming season with the Dallas Empire, training at the Envy Gaming’s new state-of-the-art practice facility in Dallas.”
Despite being in the CoD scene for some time, Tommey has never teamed with North Americans. He has consistently proved himself throughout his career and with his experience will undoubtedly fit right in to this new squad. After a sour end to his Black Ops 4 season, he seems ready for the new challenge ahead.
MuTeX makes the move
Search and Destroy wizard, MuTeX, has been competing on and off since 2015. He has played under multiple organistions including Lethal Gaming and recently a short stint under Denial Esports. Notably, the 25-year-old has a particularly close relationship with teammate, iLLeY, as they have won various Search and Destroy tournaments together over the years. He has gained a huge following of around 80,000 on popular streaming platform, Twitch.
The young-gun’s specialist knowledge in certain game modes like Search and Destroy will prove invaluable for Dallas Empire. He seems in good spirit after taking the huge step up in his career:
The mixture of experience and youth in the Dallas squad may prove to be a great combination heading into next year. Early wins in online tournaments have shown that Dallas Empire already seem to be one step ahead of the game. The full 7-man roster is as follows:
