Toronto Ulta Reportedly Sign Standy and Scrappy

Call of Duty League franchise Toronto Ultra have reportedly added Thomas “Scrappy” and Eli “Standy” Bentz to its CDL roster for the 2023 season. The reports surfaced on Friday, September 2, just a week following the departure of Cameron “Cammy” McKilligan.

Toronto Ultra Rebuild Its Lineup

Although yet to be officially confirmed, sources have unveiled that Toronto Ultra will promote Scrappy and sign Standy to its Call of Duty League 2023 roster. The news surfaced on Friday, shortly after Ultra parted ways with Cammy, who left for Minnesota ROKKR alongside Ben “Bance” Bance, who left for ROKKR on August 14.

The roster changes follow an up-and-down season in which Toronto Ultra failed to reach the heights expected of them. Notably, the Ultra were the 2021 CDL finalists but could only manage a seventh-place finish in the regular season and eventually placed fifth-sixth in the CDL Champions.

Even though Toronto Ultra have shown some glimpses of greatness in 2022 by winning the Kickoff Classic, Ultra have failed to win a single event of the season. Their best placement came in Stage 3 when Ultra made the semi-finals.

Given the team’s lack of success in 2022, it was expected that Toronto Ultra would look to make changes to its roster. And according to the recent reports, we now have a clearer picture of what their squad will look like. Although yet to be confirmed, Toronto Ultra are expected to announce the signings in the coming weeks.

Scrappy And Standy Join Ultra

The two new signings in Scrappy and Standy are expected to join Tobias “CleanX” Juul Jønsson, Jamie “Insight” Craven, and Charlie “Hicksy” Hicks as the only remaining players on Toronto Ultra. Notably, Scrappy has already joined Ultra in April 2022, but he has only served as a substitute.

Scrappy has already made an appearance for Toronto Ultra in the 2022 CDL, playing one of the team’s Major 3 qualifier matches after Cammy had to step down from the lineup due to illness. In the match against the New York Subliners, Scrappy proved his worth, dropping a 1.26 KDA and looked like a perfect fit for the team.

However, despite his strong performances in Hardpoint and Search&Destroy, Scrappy hasn’t been promoted to the main roster yet. Still considering his strong showing, it was only a matter of time before he would be given a chance in Toronto Ultra’s CDL roster.

Unlike Scrappy, who has been with Toronto Ultra since April, Standy will join the team as a new member, formerly of Minnesota ROKKR.

Standy began his CoD esports career in June 2019 with Vanity and has since played for Aspire eSports, Team Insite, Triumph, and Fantastic Four, before joining Minnesota ROKKR in march 2021. During his 17-month stay with ROKKR; Standy has achieved some success, but nothing outstanding.

Notably, he helped ROKKR win 2021 CDL Major 5 and placed fourth in the CDL 2021 Champions. But, unfortunately, ROKKR’s run through the 2022 season was far less successful, as the team failed to win a single Major title.

Their best placement came during the CDL Kickoff Classic, in which ROKKR finished in fifth-eighth place, and have since added another top-eight finish in Major 3 (seventh-eighth).

New Season Ahead

Toronto Ultra have yet to unveil the addition of Scrappy and Standy, but according to recent reports and the players’ hints on social media, it’s only a matter of time before the duo get officially announced as the newest members.

For Standy, Toronto Ultra will mark only the second CDL team he will be a part of and a new chance to re-launch his career following a disappointing season with ROKKR.

Meanwhile, for Scrappy, getting promoted to the main lineup will finally give him a chance to compete in the top league after spending most of the year on the bench while also competing for Toronto Ultra’s Academy team, with who he reached the finals of Call of Duty Challengers Finals 2022.
