Coming into season 1 of the Call of Duty League (CDL), there were many high hopes for the Seattle Surge. They had acquired a great, promising roster which featured the likes of Damon “Karma” Barlow, who is argued as being the greatest Call of Duty player ever. Unfortunately, this potential never came to fruition and outside of a 3rd-4th finish in Chicago during Week 6 of the inaugural season, it was a miserable season for Seattle Surge and their fans.
Seattle Surge Make Much Needed Roster Changes In 2021
After such a disappointing season, there’s really only a couple of options. Firstly, you can attempt to stick it out and hope for things to get better, maybe making small changes here and there. Alternatively, you can go for the entire rebuild process, which was the decision made by Seattle Surge following the end of CDL Season 1, as they kept just one player from the original squad.
For teams needing to make drastic improvements this offseason, the rebuild process was the most popular choice and it’s understandable. With the franchised league still being in its infancy, opting to overhaul things for the Call Of Duty League Season 2 is a risk well worth taking.
Obviously, not everyone can have success after rebuilding, because there has to be winners and losers in the league, but it will be worth watching the development of Seattle Surge following their moves coming into season 2. The franchise managed to secure some amazing signings, which should lead to an incredibly more positive experience for fans this year and undoubtedly increasing their CoD betting odds.
The refreshed, updated roster is as follows:
- Sam “Octane” Larew (Player)
- Peirce “Gunless” Hillman (Player)
- Daniel “Loony” Loza (Player)
- Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson (Player)
Just on the face of it, the new Seattle Surge roster is much more well rounded than past variants, and each player has had experience winning championships and major events. This bodes well for the 2021 season, it’s just a matter of finding out whether or not the team gels well together. Their first test came in the Season 2 Kick-Off event, where they lost 3-2 to the rebuilt Los Angeles Guerillas.
