The New York Subliners are looking to acquire Ian “Crimsix” Porter and Travis “Neptune” McCloud according to a report from Unscripted on Twitter.
If the rumors of this roster are true, New York would be reuniting the former 2020 Call of Duty League Champions. Both Crimsix and James “Clayster” Eubanks were teammates on the Dallas Empire in the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League.
In addition to reuniting the former champions, New York is looking to bring in Neptune, the rookie from Florida whose aggressive playstyle brought them multiple victories. He would join the Frenchman Paco “Hydra” Rusiewiez, who was often the carry for the Subliners last season. This roster also means that former New York players Makenzie “Mac” Kelley and Obaid “Asim” Asim will no longer be a part of the roster.
Neptune and Crimsix to bring power to New York
After winning the 2020 Championship with two rookies, the two veterans will be looking to do it again with another organization. While both Hydra and Neptune technically got their starts last year, they are still new in the scene and could use the support of veterans. Neptune previously teamed with veterans Cesar “Skyz” Bueno and Colt “Havok” McLendon but that team did not find success during the 2021 season. He also didn’t havean aggressive submachine gun duo like Hydra to pair up with. Both combinations should prove deadly if this roster forms.
“I am 100% confident in the source,” said Unscripted when asked about his sources for New York via Twitter DM.
Not only has Unscripted reported on this, but CDLIntel also corroborated that this will be New York’s roster next year. This roster would not have happened without the Dallas Empire releasing Crimsix from the roster. This move was allegedly following a merger between OpTic Chicago and Dallas Empire next season.
