Rounding out their starting roster, Dallas Call of Duty has signed Ian “Crimsix” Porter as their fifth player. A 32-time Champion, Crimsix is the winningest player in Call of Duty history. The former OpTic Gaming member has two World Championships under his belt, the most recent coming in 2017.

Crimsix joins the Dallas roster of Clayster, Shotzzy, Huke, and iLLeY as a veteran presence with tons of experience. Clayster and Crimsix were both teammates in Black Ops 2 when they competed under compLexity, one of the most dominant teams in COD history. This is Dallas’ final roster announcement for the time being, but they will unveil their brand tomorrow live on multiple streaming platforms.

Crimsix rounds out the Dallas starting five

If Dallas was looking for a leader who is still capable of putting up solid numbers, they hit the nail on the head with Crimsix. Considered one of the best players in Call of Duty history, Crimsix has no shortage of experience to bring to Dallas’ roster.

Competing under OpTic Gaming since 2015, Crimsix brought home numerous championships during that time. Known to be skilled with either an Assault Rifle or Submachine gun, Crimsix is a great fit with Dallas’ already stacked team.

Bringing in two of Call of Duty‘s best leaders – Clayster and Crimsix – along with three young talents is a bold move on Dallas’ part. Moreover, both Shotzzy and iLLeY are rookies, having never competed at a professional level. Still, if this gambit pays off, Dallas could be unstoppable when the CDL launches in 2020.

Looking at this roster, though, the roles seem a bit foggy. Clayster often runs an Assault Rifle and plays more of an objective role. The same goes for Crimsix, as both players usually let their teammates do most of the slaying. With the three young talents in Shotzzy, Huke, and iLLeY, it’s safe to say all three could run a Submachine gun. However, Modern Warfare‘s style will ultimately dictate whether or not one of these players uses an AR or not.

As mentioned, Dallas will hold a live stream tomorrow, October 19, to unveil their brand. Though we don’t have confirmation, their reported name will be the Dallas Empire, as hinted in the tweet below. Also, we can expect some sort of navy blue to be in the colorwave, as that’s Team Envy’s main shade.
