The undisputed GOAT of Call Of Duty, Ian Porter aka Crimsix took to Twitter to voice his opinions. He blamed the owners for not caring about the people who formed the heart and soul of their organization. This came from him a couple of days after Dallas Empire dropped Clayster.

The pandemic has obviously been ruining a lot of the Call Of Duty League, and that is understandable. Yet that does not take away the fact that 12 pros will be losing their jobs because of this change.

Rumors suggest the minimum roster size in the League has now been brought down to five from seven. This will reduce the amount of money that owners will have to spend on salaries. Nonetheless, this will also affect more players who will lose their job amidst a growing career.

Sources suggest that the Call Of Duty League expansion will not happen this season. Therefore, no new teams will be joining the League as rumored before. Rise Nation and 100 Thieves were supposedly on the line to enter the League. This is also what both Crimsix and Aches had mentioned in their tweets. It does seem rather thoughtless that owners and organizers didn’t care about players and their livelihoods when it came down to taking such drastic decisions.
