Call of Duty pros: Losing weight to becoming better teammates in 2021

Kenny “Kenny” Williams, Los Angeles Thieves

Work on getting back into the gym and losing some weight (ya boy is getting thick).

Thomas “TJHaLy” Haly, Los Angeles Thieves

My 2021 goal is to try not to ego chall (take an overly aggressive gunfight in CoD).

Paco “HyDra” Rusiewiez, New York Subliners

I want to improve my overall teamwork and learn how to win from storied veterans such as Clayster and ZooMaa.

Joseph “Owakening” Conley, Florida Mutineers

I am going to try and communicate better to my teammates in game and also watch more VODs with teammates.

Daniel “Loony” Loza, Seattle Surge

The obvious answer for a gamer’s New Year’s resolution is to be a better teammate. For me, this year is to have no regrets when it comes to effort. The past couple of years have been filled with regrets regarding team atmosphere and chemistry and I want to be able to build something worth remembering.

Cameron “Cammy” McKilligan, Toronto Ultra

My New Year’s resolutions are pretty basic. I’d say, out of game, I want to try to lose weight and improve on my diet. In terms of in-game and team stuff, I just want to keep on improving and building chemistry with the boys. I think we’re improving a lot on many things and becoming even more comfortable with each other both inside and out-of-game.

Sean “Seany” O’Connor, London Royal Ravens

I’m just working on becoming an all-around better teammate and player. Fourth place at Champs last season was a nice way to end it but it’s not enough, I put in a lot of time last season, but I have to be better in all departments to stand a chance at bringing a tournament win home for the UK.

McArthur “Cellium” Jovel, Atlanta FaZe

I’m just working on improving my lifestyle all around.

Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris, Atlanta Faze

I want to become an even better teammate and player. I also want to work on myself mentally and physically.

Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson, Atlanta FaZe

To be happier and healthier for 2021.

Preston “Priestahh” Greiner, Minnesota Røkkr

My New Year’s Resolution for 2021 is to stay on a consistent gym schedule throughout the entire year. A lot of times I go for a few months then stop for a while, but I really want to be consistent throughout the entire year.

Indervir “iLLeY” Dhaliwal, Dallas Empire

I want to start working out again and eating healthy.

Justin “SiLLY” Fargo-Palmer, Los Angeles Guerrillas

I want to get better at everything in 2021. Constant progression in all fields of my life is all I aim for. I’m hoping that gyms reopen without risk at some point in 2021 so I can get back to my peak performance, though.

Donovan “Temp” Laroda, Los Angeles Thieves

My 2021 aspiration is to lose weight.

Cesar “Skyz” Bueno, Florida Mutineers

The thing that I want to get better for the New Year is to work on my communication, being a better teammate, and being more verbal about things whenever we are talking over things in-game.

Austin “Slasher” Liddicoat, Los Angeles Thieves

Keeping a good sleep schedule throughout the year.

Anthony “Methodz” Zinni, Toronto Ultra

My New Year’s resolution is to put in more time this year than I have in any year past. I plan on continuing my fitness journey while also doing my best to be a better teammate in-game, specifically being more vocal on days where I may not have full energy.

James “Clayster” Eubanks, New York Subliners

My CDL New Year’s resolution is basically just to become a better person, player, teammate, and leader. I’ve been trying to level up every facet of my gameplay bit by bit and will continue to do that this year.

No more ego challing.

Moreover, the players have not only thought about themselves but have also kept their teams and teammates in mind. In fact, many of the players have pledged to give up ego challenges and play more logically.

In brief, fans can be assured that they will see most of these players at their best in 2021. From the Subliners to the Mutineers, all the underdogs will be ready with their big guns. Therefore, FaZe or the current champs, Dallas Empire, better watch out.
