The Florida Mutineers have formally completed their roster ahead of the Call of Duty League Major IV qualifiers. The team announced on Thursday that they’ve signed former Challengers player Brendan “2ReaL” Stockdale to the starting roster.
2ReaL is the replacement for Reece “Vivid” Drost, who was released and subsequently signed with the Boston Breach earlier this week. 2ReaL is a fast-paced submachine gun player that should fill Vivid’s shoes well. However, the Mutineers are hoping 2ReaL has more success on the stats page, as Vivid only had a 0.89 KD during this season with Florida.
A rookie that has proven himself in trials.

This is the second move the Mutineers have made this week. The first was moving rookie David “Davpadie” Maslowski to the bench and signing former Minnesota ROKKR player Mike “Majormaniak” Szymaniak. This current roster will see Majormaniak take over the Main AR duties while 2ReaL will slide in as the second SMG alongside Joe “Owakening” Conley. Cesar “Skyz” Bueno will remain as the Flex player for the roster.
Most recently, 2ReaL was competing with a Challengers team that consisted of James “Clayster” Eubanks and Tyler “FeLo” Johnson. However, he also competed with the team “WhateverItTakes,” which featured Majormaniak as well as current LA Guerrillas player Travis “Neptune” McCloud. That team won the Toronto Ultra Challengers Open.
2ReaL has been an under-the-radar player this entire season. As he began playing with more high-profile players, though, he began to truly showcase what he can do in Call of Duty. He’s a talented submachine gun player that plays with pace, something the Florida Mutineers desperately need.
The Mutineers are hoping the additions of Majormaniak and 2ReaL will be enough to qualify for CDL Champs. Florida currently has 110 points in the standings, good for 10th place. They need to be top eight or higher to qualify for Champs. Essentially, they need to win at least a few matches or go far at the Major IV tournament to have a hope of qualifying. If not, Major IV will be their last event in 2022.
