League of Legends
Call of Duty
Paris Legion has released its entire Call of Duty League roster. The Legion were the only team in 2021 to not win any prize money during the season. The c0ntact Gaming-owned squad did not qualify for Champs.
Paris joins the Seattle Surge in being the only two teams to release their entire roster ahead of the off-season. It was around this time last season that the Legion decided to clean house after a disappointing 10th place finish during the 2020 season. The organization will need to completely rebuild for Call of Duty: Vanguard.
Paris Legion release roster for a second consecutive season
The Legion’s social media accounts went radio silent for months after the 2020 season, which was paired with the organization not making a single roster signing until after Black Ops Cold War launched.
Thank you each and every player who played under the Legion banner for 2021. It was a tough season, and we deeply appreciate the commitment given the circumstances. We wish them the very best with all their future endeavours. pic.twitter.com/krr7cZlvQQ

The 2021 roster was made up of players who went unsigned by other teams including rookie Luis “Fire” Rivera and veterans Matt “Skrapz” Marshall and Ulysses “Aqua” Silva. The roster went through some changes throughout the year but it didn’t seem to matter. The Legion struggled for the entire season.
There are also rumors that the Legion’s spot in the Call of Duty League could be bought out. Recently, eUnited, winners of COD Champs in 2019, hinted at a return to Call of Duty. We’ll know more on Aug. 29 when the organization makes an announcement. The timing of this today’s roster change could be more than a coincidence.
Paris did not specify whether or not if it was keeping coach Dylan “Theory” McGee employed. The former FaZe Clan player still has the team listed in his Twitter profile.
