Two popular Call of Duty League teams Toronto Ultra and Boston Breach have made significant changes to their roster ahead of the season. 

Toronto Ultra sign Envoy 

Dylan “Envoy” Hannon, who had been a part of the LA Thieves roster in the Call of Duty League for almost two years, has officially joined Boston Breach for the upcoming 2023/24 Call of Duty League season. Hannon achieved tremendous success while playing for his last team LA Thieves, winning the Major Four and CDL Championship 2022 and placing second at the 2022 CDL Pro-Am Classic and the Major Two. 

After Thieves’ journey at CoD Champions 2023 ended with merely a Top 8 finish, the organization opted to overhaul its roster and parted ways with Hannon. The news comes a few weeks after the Ultra terminated ties with Hicksy, who had been given the starting lineup spot for the 2023 season in place of Standy. Hicksy played a key role in setting the club to claim the championship, therefore the decision came as a complete surprise to many fans. 

Hicksy became one of the select few players in Call of Duty history to win a Major in his first CDL tournament appearance. Toronto Ultra had a decent amount of success with Hicksy in 2023, taking home CDL Major Three and finishing second at CDL Championship after falling short against New York Subliners in the final.

Boston Breach sign SlasheR and Priestahh

Boston Breach has officially acquired former Atlanta FaZe player Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat, and 2023 CDL champion Preston “Priestahh” Greiner. SlasheR, who won his first world championship nearly seven years ago with Team Envy in 2016, delivered an impressive performance during his last stint with Atlanta FaZe, helping the team win its first championship in more than 17 months.

Priestahh, on the other hand, just wrapped up a successful stint with the New York Subliners, where he played a crucial role in the team’s incredible 2023 CDL season run, which saw them win three titles, including the CDL Champions. Unfortunately, the Subliners and Priestahh were unable to reach an agreement on a new contract and opted to part ways, which allowed Boston to bolster their COD squad with a world champions rifler.

Boston is coming off of a season that started off slowly but eventually burned out, with many roster changes failing to help them get things going. Although Boston reached the postseason both times, it failed to win the world championship, having failed to win a match at the 2022 CDL Championship, while managing to win one game at the 2023 CDL Championship.

As a result, the organization cut ties with Owakening, Kremp, Vivid, and Nero, who all played most of their 2023 season under the Boston Breach banner. The addition of two world champions, however, brings about an important shakeup for the Boston CDL team and makes them a hot pick for the upcoming season.
