The Call of Duty League returns February 22. Hosted by the undefeated Atlanta Faze, Atlanta’s homestead will feature some of the league’s top franchises, including the Chicago Huntsmen.
Former CWL World Champion, Chris “Simp” Lehr, at just 19 years old, is anticipated to have yet another all-star year and lead his new team to their first championship. Here is a look at Chris “Simp” Lehr’s player profile ahead of CDL Atlanta.
Player Profile: Chris “Simp” Lehr
Simp runs an SMG in respawns and typically a sniper or SMG in Search and Destroy. He is the first to most gun-fights and objectives and will usually be slaying his opponents up close, relying on his main AR(s) to provide back up.
His amateur year saw huge successes with wins at both the 2019 Call of Duty Playoffs and the 2019 World Championship under eUnited.
In his early years, Simp developed a passion for Search and Destroy. After winning numerous UMG and LAN tournaments, his reputation among the professional community soared.
Fast forward to Black Ops IIII, Simp bounced around a few teams. He often competed with his current teammate McArthur “Cellium” Jovel, and Indervir “iLLey” Dhaliwal and Cuyler “Huke” Garland of the Dallas Empire.
One of 2019’s top prospects, Simp transferred to the eUnited Cadets, eUnited’s academy team, and then over to FC Black.
Around the end of 2018, the eUnited roster was struggling to get anything going. Rumors started circulating that eUnited was due for a roster change and after a messy few months, Jordan “JKap” Kaplan was dropped.
Simp, now eligible to compete, returned to eUnited, this time on their starting line up. The team consisted of Simp, James “Clayster” Eubanks, twins Alec “Arcitys” and Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson and Tyler “aBezy” Pharris.
The team quickly became a league powerhouse. During his time on eUnited, Simp was a 2019 two-time MVP, CWL Pro League All-Star, World Champion (one of six Call of Duty players to win in their first appearance) and Esports Console Rookie of the year.
The Atlanta Faze
Now in his second year of professional-level competition, Simp has already proven he is one of the best Call of Duty players the league has ever seen.
At the opening weekend, for the inaugural Call of Duty franchised league, the Atlanta Faze dominated Dallas and New York. Faze dropped zero Hardpoints and zero rounds of Search and Destroy the entire event. Simp had another MVP performance too. He averaged a 1.58 K/DR with a 40 kill average in Hardpoint and 6.50 KD/R in Search.
While Faze wasn’t in attendance for CDL London, Simp and the Atlanta Faze will look to continue their terror in Atlanta next weekend as they attempt to take down their biggest rivals, the Chicago Huntsmen.
