According to new reports from CDL Intel on Thursday, the Boston Call of Duty League franchise has some targets in mind for their starting roster. These targets consist of some expected players along with a couple of surprises. Anthony “Methodz” Zinni and TJ “TJHaLy” Haly are two players that many expected Boston to pick up. However, the report also states that Boston is looking at Dylan “Nero” Koch and Capsidal, two amateur players.

It’s been a busy day for the Boston CDL organization. After announcing their entry into the league, the team announced two new additions to their staff. Denholm “Denz” Taylor was announced as a general manager while Zach “Zed” Denyer joined as the head coach. It seems the franchise is moving quickly on signing a starting roster as well.

Boston CDL eyeing veterans and amateurs for roster

Methodz and TJHaLy have been playing together since the Vanguard season began. They were also playing with Paul “PaulEhx” Avila and Carlos “Venom” Hernandez, but that duo just announced their intentions to start the 2022 season in CDL Challengers. Methodz and TJHaLy were a part of the supposed roster that the Washington Justice ownership group targeted. The ownership group was reportedly interested in purchasing the 12th spot in the CDL from NRG but talks fell through.

Both veterans had a rocky 2021, being benched at different points in the season. Methodz was benched on the Toronto Ultra for rookie of the year Jamie “Insight” Craven, while TJHaLy was benched a couple of different times on the LA Thieves.

As for Nero and Capsidal, both are unexpected targets for the Boston roster. Neither has been playing in the amateur scene for too long. Nero was on the LA Guerrillas Academy team last season, placing decently in some events but never taking home a win. Capsidal started his Call of Duty career last season, playing with Boston’s new GM Denz at various points. Capsidal’s Challengers team finished in second place in the first Challengers Cup last weekend.

One final player that CDL Intel mentions as a possible name to watch is Paul “Breszy” Breszynski. Breszy was a substitute for the Paris Legion in 2020, a team that rostered both Denz and Zed. He’s been playing in Challengers since last season and currently teams with Nero in Vanguard.

The 2022 Call of Duty League season unofficially starts on Jan. 21, so Boston has around one month to put a roster together.
