The offseason for the 2022 Call of Duty League season is in full swing. Minnesota and both Los Angeles teams have begun to announce their full rosters that will play Call of Duty: Vanguard. Like many predicted, rostermania has been wild with veterans like Sam “Octane” Larew  joining organizations they’ve played for before.

The deadline to announce contract extensions has past, meaning teams like Atlanta are all but locked in for the 2022 CDL season. There are still a lot of moves to be made with the possible Dallas and Chicago merger and Paris looking for amateur talent to fill their ranks. There are plenty of rosters open for veterans and rookies alike. Here is everything we know about 2022 Call of Duty League rostermania so far.

2022 Call of Duty League Rostermania

Upcomer will keep track and update this page with all public and reported moves.

Atlanta FaZe

2021 champions Atlanta FaZe should keep its same starting roster from the Cold War season. While players like MVP Chris “Simp” Lehr might be on an expiring contract, it is expected they’ll sign extensions to stay with Atlanta for another title run.

2021 roster: 

  • Chris “Simp” Lehr
  • Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris
  • McArthur “Cellium” Jovel
  • Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson

Toronto Ultra

The kings of the North aren’t expected to make any significant moves during the offseason. It’s been reported that all players except for Tobias “CleanX” Juul Jønsson are signed for next season. It seems unlikely CleanX would look for another squad after Toronto’s unexpected success during Cold War.

2022 roster: 

  • Jamie “Insight” Craven
  • Ben “Bance” Bance
  • Cameron “Cammy” McKilligan
  • Tobias “CleanX” Juul Jønsson

2021 roster: 

  • Jamie “Insight” Craven
  • Ben “Bance” Bance
  • Cameron “Cammy” McKilligan
  • Tobias “CleanX” Juul Jønsson
  • Anthony “Methodz” Zinni (substitute)

Dallas Empire

Dallas is one of the most intriguing teams heading into the 2021 offseason. They had a solid core of young players, and the most decorated player of all time in Ian “Crimsix” Porter, but now they could be split up. The team could have to make some changes after coming up short at Champs.

Reece “Vivid” Drost is the most recent member who followed a rotation through Tyler “FeLo” Johnson and Cuyler “Huke” Garland.

2021 roster: 

  • Ian “Crimsix” Porter
  • Anthony “Shotzzy” Cuevas-Castro
  • Reece “Vivid” Drost
  • Indervir “iLLeY” Dhaliwal
  • Tyler “FeLo” Johnson (Substitute)

New York Subliners

New York finished sixth at Champs after falling to Atlanta and Minnesota. The organization’s 2021 roster changes included bringing French phenom rookie, Paco “HyDra” Rusiewiez in from Europe early in the season and James “Clayster” Eubanks taking a mental health break during Stage 5. Conor “Diamondcon” Johst played in his place.

Clayster was dropped by Dallas after the 2020 season. We’ll see if he lands on another team for 2022.

2021 roster: 

  • James “Clayster” Eubanks
  • Paco “HyDra” Rusiewiez
  • Mackenzie “Mack” Kelly
  • Obaid “Asim” Asim
  • Conor “Diamondcon” Johst (substitute)

Offseason tracker:

  • Coach John “Revan” Boble announces free agency
  • Conor “Diamondcon” Johst tweets that he is an unrestricted free agent

OpTic Chicago

After another disappointing campaign in 2021, OpTic may be looking to make a change before Vanguard. Seth “Scump” Abner has said he isn’t retiring and Brandon “Dashy” Otell has said that he won’t leave unless dropped. We’ll see if Dylan “Envoy” Hannon and Matt “FormaL” Piper stay on the roster before 2022. Chicago could also benefit from additional coaching and analyst help.

2021 roster:

  • Seth “Scump” Abner
  • Brandon “Dashy” Otell
  • Dylan “Envoy” Hannon
  • Matt “FormaL” Piper

Offseason tracker: 

  • Scump announces he’s not retiring, will return for 2022
  • Dashy reveals he’s not leaving OpTic unless he’s dropped
  • Envoy announces he is an unrestricted free agent for the 2022 season
  • FormaL announces he’s transitioning into content creation

Minnesota Røkkr

Minnesota Røkkr look to have one of the best rosters in the Call of Duty League heading into Vanguard after an incredible Stage 5 Major performance. Rookie sensation Eli “Standy” Bentz is reportedly a free agent but it seems highly unlikely Røkkr would let him go.

2022 roster: 

  • Dillon “Attach” Price
  • Eli “Standy” Bentz
  • Preston “Priestahh” Grenier
  • Mike “MajorManiak” Szymaniak

2021 roster: 

  • Dillon “Attach” Price
  • Eli “Standy” Bentz
  • Preston “Priestahh” Grenier
  • Mike “MajorManiak” Szymaniak
  • Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi (substitute)

Offseason tracker: 

Florida Mutineers

Florida have an outstanding core group of three players, but management hasn’t been able to find a fourth to match the rest of the team’s potential. Colt “Havok” McLendon did an average job after coming in during the middle of the season but the Mutineers could move on from him after finishing seventh at Champs.

2021 roster: 

  • Joe “Owakening” Conley
  • Cesar “Skyz” Bueno
  • Travis “Neptune” McCloud
  • Colt “Havok” McLendon

LA Thieves

The LA Thieves are arguably the biggest question mark in the league heading into the offseason. They made a whopping eight roster changes in 2021 but they never achieved good results. Many of the players listed below will not be with the team for 2022. Fans are eager to see what will happen with Cuyler “Huke” Garland.

2022 roster: 

  • Kenny “Kenny” Williams
  • Sam “Octane” Larew
  • Dylan “Envoy” Hannon
  • Zack “Drazah” Jordan

2021 roster: 

  • Kenny “Kenny” Williams
  • Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat
  • Zack “Drazah” Jordan
  • John “John” Perez
  • Carlos “Venom” Hernandez
  • TJ “TJHaLy” Haly
  • Cuyler “Huke” Garland

Offseason tracker:

Seattle Surge

Seattle kicked off the offseason during the middle of Champs by dropping its entire roster. The organization will need to build from the ground up in 2022. Sources say Seattle will attempt to field a roster of amateurs alongside the hiring of EastR coach Sam “Fenix” Spencer.

2021 roster: 

  • Sam “Octane” Larew
  • Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson
  • Pierce “Gunless” Hillman
  • Nick “Classic” DiCostanzo

Offseason tracker: 

Paris Legion

Paris released its entire squad on Aug. 27. Last offseason, the Paris Legion didn’t sign anyone until Black Ops Cold War launched. The last-minute signings didn’t pan out as the Legion earned no prize money throughout the 2021 season.

2021 roster: 

  • Matt “Skrapz” Marshall
  • Donny “Temp” Laroda
  • Alex “Zaptius” Bonilla
  • Ulysses “AquA” Silva

Offseason tracker: 

Los Angeles Guerrillas

The LA Guerrillas were a disappointment in 2021. Rumors are circulating that the Guerrillas will not extend any player from 2021 outside Brian “Apathy” Zhelyazkov. This rumor gained traction when Josiah “Slacked” Berry updated his offseason rostermania sheet to reflect the change.

2022 roster: 

  • Obaid “Asim” Asim
  • Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat
  • Pierce “Gunless” Hillman
  • Cuyler “Huke” Garland

2021 roster: 

  • Brian “Apathy” Zhelyazkov
  • Justin “Silly” Fargo
  • Adam “Assault” Garcia
  • Billy “MentaL” Putnam
  • Martin “Cheen” Chino (substitute)

London Royal Ravens

London had a confusing offseason one year ago. A few weeks removed from placing fourth at CDL Champs, the Royal Ravens decided to drop their entire roster. While they eventually brought some of these players back, it was a head-scratching decision.

Sources say that London is focused on building an all-European squad centered around Marcus “Afro” Reid in 2022. The roster would need some amateurs if it takes this route, as many of the top European veterans are already employed elsewhere.

2021 roster: 

  • Marcus “Afro” Reid
  • Paul “PaulEhx” Avila
  • Sean “Seany” O’Connor
  • Alex “Alexx” Carpenter
  • Dylan Dylan Henderson (substitute)

Offseason tracker:

  • London dropped their entire roster, except for Marcus “Afro” Reid and Dylan Dylan Henderson
  • Zach “Zed” Denyer, who played for both Paris and London in 2021, retires
  • London eyeing a roster made up of Zer0, Nastie and Gismo
