Gaming rosters are subjected to changes. There are times when teams need shuffling and want to make amends either due to player shuffling or when players want to leave. Whatever the reason, adding and losing players from rosters is done with the utmost consideration. There’s a balance between teammates, which is the key to success in any event.
Recently, Chicago Huntsmen let go of three members of its team, including the Sanderson Twins. The team reported that it was letting go of Preston and Alec Sanderson as well as analyst John Hartley as a change in the roster.
The primary reason that one can assemble is that the team finished 4th in the regular season, knocked out by Atlanta FaZe. Previously, the team hired the Sanderson twins from Florida Mutineers in May.
What’s more interesting to the roster change is the signing of Brandon “Dashy” Otell that joined the team on Monday. An official tweet for welcoming Dashy was posted from the team’s Twitter account, which showed that the player was finally here. Dashy has been running along with OpTic Gaming. There he had been playing under then OpTic owner and now Chicago Huntsmen CEO Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, which makes more sense as to why he was chosen.
The player will be having a blast from the past as he will be reuniting with Seth “Scump” Abner, Jordan “General” General, Matthew “FormaL” Piper, and Dylan “Envoy” Hannon. The former two’s contracts were recently extended as mentioned on the Call of Duty website. This leads to the official recognition of the lineup for Chicago Huntsmen that will feature:
- Seth “Scump” Abner
- Jordan “General” General (substitute)
- Matthew “FormaL” Piper
- Dylan “Envoy” Hannon
- Brandon “Dashy” Otell
Dashy also tweeted, thanking the team’s official and mentioning the name of the players he’ll now be running with. Letting go of the Sanderson Twins and adding Dashy in the roster is one of the major roster changes that have been seen this year.
At OpTic Gaming, Dashy was able to offer an extraordinary display of gameplay that allowed to save the team from a crucial lower bracket match when Kenny “Kuavo” Williams faced internet issues in a crucial Map 5.
The season itself was quite tumultuous for the Chicago Huntsmen in the OGLA with their former starting lineup. Apart from that, the league also announced that the games would be moved to PCs and that controllers would also be required as a major input for the 2021 season. These major changes are quite intriguing since it’s the first time that the Call of Duty esports competition would be held on PCs.
Overall, fans, as well as the team itself, are quite hopeful regarding the entry of Dashy. He has previously teamed up with Scump, which makes the team hopeful regarding a competitive partnership that would help them get the leads the team wants. Playing with Envoy and FormaL would be Dashy’s first experience. What’s left to see is how well does Dashy becomes the part and brings the revolutionary performance that the Chicago Huntsmen are looking for.
