Minnesota RØKKR Reveal CDL 2023 Roster

Minnesota RØKKR have announced its Call of Duty League 2023 roster on Thursday, August 25. The lineup will feature veteran leadership paired with reinforcements from across the pond.

Minnesota RØKKR Form A New Lineup

Minnesota RØKKR have shown some signs of potential in the 2022 season, but they never put it all together, managing just two top eight finishes in CDL Major 1 and CDL Major 3. In a bid to improve for the upcoming season, RØKKR have started exploring options and shockingly decided to completely freshen up its roster, keeping just one member from the last season.

As revealed on Thursday, RØKKR’s CDL 2023 roster will feature the returning Dillon “Attach” Price, who will link with Marcus “Afro” Reid, Ben “Bance” Bance, and Cameron “Cammy” McKilligan. Although far from one of the most stacked lineups, RØKKR deserve the tag of fielding one of the most intriguing teams heading into Modern Warfare 2.

As the only returning player from the 2022 season, Attach has re-joined to the team after he entered free agency at the start of the month, alongside his former teammates in Colt “Havok” McLendon, Eli “Standy” Bentz, and
Preston “Priestahh” Greiner.

By staying with the team, Attach will extend his stay at RØKKR to at least three years, having joined the team in September 2020 from the New York Subliners.

Attach Receives Company

Joining Attach for the 2023 CDL season is an intriguing lineup of Afro, Bance, and Cammy, who have joined RØKKR from various teams, including RØKKR’s main rivals, Toronto Ultra.

One of the newest signings from RØKKR’s rival team, Bance, will join the Minnesota squad after spending two years with Toronto Ultra, who he led to the 2021 CDL Championship finals, before enduring a turbulent and unfruitful season in 2022.

Notably, Toronto Ultra have not won a single Major in 2022. Their best placement was a third-place finish at CDL Major 3, followed by a fourth-place finish at Major 1. Stil, despite Ultra’s lack of success, they still ended the season fairly solid, placing top-six at CDL Champs.

Like Bance, Cammy joins RØKKR after spending two years with Toronto Ultra, having achieved the same success as his old-new teammate.

Interestingly, the two have also played together at Units, albeit only a for a short time, before the duo moved to compete in the CDL.

The fourth and final member of the new-look RØKKR, Afro, joins the team from London Royal Ravens, with who he has achieved plenty of success in the 2022 season. Notably, the Royal Ravens have won Call of Duty League 2022 – Major 4 Qualifiers and placed third in CDL Major 1.

The new players also have some history together. At Black Ops: Cold War Major 5 Attach and RØKKR made Call of Duty esports history when they reverse-swept Bence and Cammy’s Toronto Ultra in the finals after being 0-4 down.

Although Attach has met with Afro and London Royal Ravens before, the two sides have not produced any results as notable as the Battle of the North.

Ready For A New Season

By unveiling its roster, RØKKR are one of the first teams to lock in its lineup for the 2023 CDL season, following OpTic Chicago, La Guerrillas, and Atlanta FaZe. And even though RØKKR’s roster isn’t as star-studded as some other lineups, it holds plenty of promise.

Attach had a phenomenal season in 2022 and was named to the CDL 2022 All-Star First Team. Attach, who has shined as SMG player in Modern Warfare and Black Ops: Cold War, transitioned to AR in Vanguard and posted a 1.13 KD (fourth best in the league).

And while Attach is the standout player on the roster, RØKKR now fields a nice mix of experience and young talent, a perfect recipe to make a splash in the next season.
