Call of Duty League’s Canadian team Toronto Ultra is facing major backlash over the treatment of their players. Ian “Crimsix” Porter took to Twitter after a clip from a podcast was slandering Daniel “Loony” Loza. Loony recently signed with the Seattle Surge after being unable to play on Toronto’s ten-man roster.

Toronto’s issues first arose when Nicholas “Classic” DiCostanzo was unable to leave Canada after a family emergency. Classic’s grandfather had just passed, and he spoke to Toronto Ultra about leaving to be with his family. The two parties fought back and forth over the matter before finally allowing Classic to leave. However, he was unable to practice with the team when he returned. He was allegedly told that he would also not be starting in the upcoming matches.

When Toronto played their next games, Classic was subbed in after having not practiced for weeks. This has a major effect on how the team performed that weekend.

Toronto Ultra get gutted by Crimsix

After the podcast clip was released, Crimsix took to Twitter to air out Toronto’s dirty laundry. In a lengthy Twitter thread, Crimsix explained another situation when the Ultra had screwed their player. Carson “Brack” Newberry was a substitute player for the Ultra and was not actively playing matches.

After Brack’s grandfather’s open-heart surgery, he too requested to return home to be with his family. However, the Toronto Ultra fought him as well for his right to return home to his family. When they finally allowed him to leave, they took away a month’s worth of earnings. Remember that Brack was not an active player in their roster and not practicing with the team.

According to Crimsix, the Toronto Ultra is also looking to spilt this year’s tournament earnings 50/50. That would leave a small profit going to the players themselves. Teams are already cutting player salaries by a large margin this year, which would make earnings even lower.
