Havok and KiSMET are expected to make returns to the Call of Duty League after both players ran individual trials for the Minnesota RØKKR and New York Subliners over the last week, while General, Breszy, and coach Mayhem are left to go their separate ways, sources tell Dot Esports.
In March, Dot Esports reported that the New York Subliners would sign PaulEhx and were actively pursuing a second player. It was later revealed Havok was one of the players the Subliners were targeting but he declined the opportunity for various reasons.
Fast forward to April and Havok is rumored to have been actively taking part in roster trials for the RØKKR over the past week after the franchise announced it would be testing multiple players and lineups during the midseason break.
Havok’s Texas Nation teammate KiSMET, on the other hand, has also been rumored to be taking part in a different set of roster trials, this time for the Subliners, who are looking to yet again make a roster move after having nothing but struggles the entire season. The team is currently sitting in 11th place in the standings with a 4-9 record.
Assuming everything goes smoothly, both players are expected to join the respective teams they trialed for and make their return to the Call of Duty League, leaving General, Breszy, and coach Mayhem to find other opportunities.
General is expected to take a break from competing, Breszy will return to the Challengers circuit in Europe, and Mayhem has found an opportunity with Toronto Ultra’s North Academy team, where he’ll stand in as a second coach for Scrappy, Mohak, Hicksy, and Vikul, who now own the first seed in North America, according to sources.
Texas Nation were one of the most dominant teams in Challengers history, winning seven tournaments in a row this season, including placing first at both Challengers Elite Playoffs for $20,000. But they fell short at the Minnesota RØKKR Open, placing top-six, and failed to qualify for the Pro-Am Classic.
The final rosters for the Minnesota RØKKR and New York Subliners are unknown at this point. Both teams are likely still trying multiple lineup combinations to see which pieces fit the best moving forward.
