The New York Subliners have officially signed three-time Call of Duty world champion James “Clayster” Eubanks. There had been teases for Clayster’s arrival in New York since his departure from the Dallas Empire. CDL Intel on Twitter predicted Clayster’s move to New York from several sources back on September 13. This roster prediction was accompanied by several other roster moves that have so far been correct.

Yesterday, the Call of Duty community exploded after a screenshot of Clayster’s room from The Courage and Nadeshot Show emerged. On a shelf in Clayster’s room sat a hat that appeared to have a Subliners logo on the front. CDL Intel brought this image to the internet after The Courage and Nadeshot Show began. The show featured prior teammates Ian “Crimsix” Porter and Clayster. However, some fans argued that the hat in question was a Scuf promotion instead of the suspected New York Subliners hat. This was the focus of yesterday’s rostermania news since Clayster’s move had been rumored, and then not, to New York since after the championship.

Clayster joins unfinished team

The New York Subliners recently released Donovan “Temp” Laroda, Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi, and Dillon “Attach” Price from their main roster. That now leaves rookie Makenzie “Mack” Kelley and veteran Thomas “ZooMaa” Paparatto on the roster. As a result, Clayster now joins the roster to fulfill the main Assault Rifle (AR) position alongside two Submachine Gun players.  Additionally, Attach and Accuracy recently moved to the Minnesota Rokkr alongside FaZe members Michael “MajorManiak” Szymaniak and Preston “Priestahh” Greiner.

With most of the roster now complete, the Subliners now look to find a fourth player. According to CDL Intel on Twitter, New York has both Johnathon “John” Perez and Paco “HyDra” Rusiewiez on their radar. Both players would be looking to make a return to the main stage with a starting position.
