Just last week, after rumors surrounding who will be the twelth and final team in the CDL. It has just been confirmed that the new CDL team will be in Boston. This was after the acquisition of the last spot by Kraft Sports Group, founded by Robert Kraft and family, and also Oxygen Esports, the owners of the Boston Uprising, their Overwatch team.
This, in turn, is very interesting considering the previous team, Washington Justice, was about to take this spot. After the acquisition of this spot, which was previously held by Team Envy after the merger of both OpTic and Envy, the team is already making moves as a new franchise.
The Moves Made So Far
The Boston franchise has already made moves as to who they want to help lead their team into a new sport for their investment group and organization. These two signings are Zach “Zed” Denyer and Denholm “Denz” Taylor.
Denz as general manager could be the thing that this new team needs. The Australian veteran of the Call of Duty League could very well use his expertise on and off the map to help this organization find and sign new talent to be great.
Zed, one of the most storied Call of Duty players to come from the United Kingdom, was signed as a head coach for the team. This could be the type of coach in order to help train some of the possible young talented players to be great for the team and for themselves within the league.
Possible Future Moves
There are many moves and directions that could be made by the organization. One such direction of choosing what players to sign could be going the veteran route. There are many Call of Duty veterans that are awaiting their second chance at getting and staying in the league.
Another route is going through the challenger’s scene route of getting young and upcoming players that have good raw talent. At the same time, they need to have a bit of coaching to get at a high level.
Overall, there are many things that can happen for the 12th and final team within the Call of Duty League. One of these is a possible rivalry with the New York Subliners. This is due to the rivalry between the two cities of Boston and New York.
One thing that is for certain, it is great for the league that there is finally the 12th team. However, it is relatively late to enter the league as the season will start in only just a month. It could be very difficult for them, however, it is great that there is another city in the mix.
