Dallas Empire’s own superstar Anthony “Shotzzy” Cuevas has been officially crowned the Call of Duty League (CDL) MVP for 2020. This award was chosen by the Call of Duty League analysts and casters from five different MVP candidates. Jovel “Cellium” McArthur, Dylan “Envoy” Hannon, Cesar “Skyz” Bueno, Chris “Simp” Lehr, and Shotzzy were all nominated for MVP.  These players performed the best among the top teams in the league by ensuring victory for their team.

Shotzzy previously played professional Halo for both Splyce and Nfinite from February of 2017 until April of 2020. After retiring from Halo, he began his career as a professional Call of Duty player for the Dallas Empire. Since then he has assisted Dallas in winning three home series tournaments and over $220,000 in prize money. Their dominant performance this year secured them 2nd seed heading into playoffs alongside Atlanta FaZe.

Shotzzy: rookie to MVP

Many Dallas Empire fans had some questions surrounding Shotzzy when he was first announced to the team. Since he came from a different game background, some thought he wouldn’t be on the same level as other professionals. More doubt flooded in when Dallas placed bottom four at the Call of Duty League launch weekend. Both rookies Shotzzy and Indervir “iLLeY” Dhaliwal performed poorly compared to veterans James “Clayster” Eubanks and Ian “Crimsix” Porter.

Soon after the launch weekend concluded, the players started to finally come together as a team. They placed 2nd at the London home series to the Chicago Huntsmen and then placed 1st at Los Angeles. After their breakout success, Dallas became a team that was a force to be reckoned with. They concluded the regular season with an average 3rd place placement rate. They are currently locked in for the top three spots at the CDL 2020 Championships alongside Atlanta FaZe and another team that has yet to be decided. Dallas Empire has continued to succeed with Shotzzy showing up and clutching when the team needs him most.
