In some incredibly exciting news for the Call of Duty League, the Chicago Huntsmen have officially rebranded to OpTic Chicago following 100 Thieves acquisition of OpTic Gaming Los Angeles’ CDL spot. With this move, Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, owner of OpTic Chicago and C0-CEO of NRG, gets his iconic branding back.
All this was possible when H3CZ reacquired the OpTic Gaming brand from Immortals and 100 Thieves bought out their CDL spot, changing the brand to 100 Thieves. For fans of professional Call of Duty, this couldn’t be more exciting as OpTic Gaming is easily the most iconic organization in the history of CoD. It was also a smart move for the league to allow Chicago to rebrand after rumors that they wouldn’t be able to went around for a bit. With those two teams duking it out in 2021, the CDL might have the best season in professional Call of Duty history.
The Chicago Huntsmen had a successful inaugural season in the Call of Duty League. They had the biggest fanbase of any squad and their matches were typically the highest viewed matches of the season (aside from the championship), but something was missing. It was the OpTic Gaming brand that is the most iconic name in pro Call of Duty. Now, with the Huntsmen rebranding to OpTic Chicago, the appeal is higher than ever as the team looks to make a deep run in 2021.
With the OpTic Gaming brand rightfully where it belongs and 100 Thieves back to competing in professional CoD, it truly feels like the 2021 Call of Duty League will be the best pro Call of Duty has ever been. Such storied organizations and teams, and for them to be back just feels right. It’s a good time to not only be a OpTic fan or 100 Thieves fan, but a Call of Duty fan in general. 2021 is going to be exciting.
