The Call of Duty: Warzone professional scene is growing by the day, as the Minnesota RØKKR announced on Thursday they have signed former Call of Duty League professional Rasim “Blazt” Ogresevic to their Warzone roster. Blazt will compete under the RØKKR banner in all future tournaments but won’t be a part of the official CDL team.
This marks the fourth organization in the CDL to sign a Warzone-centric player. The LA Thieves, New York Subliners and Dallas Empire all have Warzone content creators/players signed to the organization.
Blazt brings Warzone to Minnesota RØKKR

Since the 2020 Call of Duty League season ended, Blazt has been a Warzone player and streamer through and through. He hasn’t deviated from the game since losing the Call of Duty Champs with the LA Guerrillas in August of 2020.
That tournament was his last as a professional, as he turned to full-time streaming after not landing a spot on a CDL roster in 2021. The decision to focus on Warzone and streaming has now worked out for the new RØKKR member. He’s gained quite a following on social media and now boasts an average of around 300-400 viewers when streaming.
Thanks to this success and his overall skill in Warzone, RØKKR decided to start a roster with him as the anchor. In any future tournaments, like today’s $20,000 TeeP Trials, Blazt will compete as a member of Minnesota. He’s expressed his desire to bring championships to Minnesota, so it’s likely more tournament appearances are on the horizon.
In recent months, more and more Warzone players have been signed to organizations. Despite that, there’s still no official competitive Warzone circuit for these players to compete in. The only tournaments are thrown by sponsors, organizations or individual streamers/websites.
That doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon, so Blazt and the other signed players will continue to throw themselves into the tournament gauntlet.
