League of Legends
Call of Duty
The 12th and final team of the Call of Duty League was officially revealed on Thursday as the Boston Breach, which is run by Oxygen Esports. The roster is exactly how leaks described, with two veterans and two rookies joining the fold.
The logo fully takes on the breach protocol aesthetic, with a green X over a white B. In their announcement video, the players and coach Zach “Zed” Denyer, were in full hacker outfits to complete the look. This roster has been scrimmaging together for the past two months against professional teams and is as follows:
- Anthony “Methodz” Zinni
- TJ “TJHaLy” Haly
- Dylan “Nero” Koch
- Zed (Coach)

Boston picked up half of the squad that was supposedly destined for the Washington D.C. area. Earlier in 2021, reports indicated that Washington Esports Ventures, the owner of the OWL’s Washington Justice, would purchase a CDL spot and picking up Methodz and TJHaLy’s squad.
However, talks apparently fell through with Washington and NRG, the organization selling the spot. This led to Robert Kraft, owner of the NFL’s New England Patriots, and his group purchasing the 12th and final league spot from Envy, who acquired it from NRG. The group announced that New England-based Oxygen Esports would operate the franchise now known as the Boston Breach.
Fans will see just how far along the Breach roster is when they play the New York Subliners in round one of the CDL 2022 Kickoff Classic on Jan. 21. That event takes place on LAN at the Esports Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
