The Florida Mutineers have added MajorManiak to their starting Call of Duty League squad, while Davpadie has been benched, a day after announcing the departure of Vivid.
After spending over two years with the Minnesota RKKR, where he won the Stage Five Major in one of the greatest comebacks in Call of Duty League history, MajorManiak is now headed to Florida. MajorManiak was benched by Minnesota twice in the past 21 months, the most recent time on April 27 when Havok took his place in the starting lineup.
Despite controversy over his fit with the squad upon his signing with Florida in October 2021, Davpadie has been a regular starter for the Mutineers since the start of the CDL season. The Mutineers have slid into a tie for ninth place with Minnesota in the league rankings going into the final third of the season with Davpadie, Vivid, Skyz, and Owakening. Only the top eight CDL teams will be eligible for the postseason.
MajorManiak won’t be the only addition to the Florida starting lineup as a result of Vivid’s transfer to Boston and Davpadie’s benching. Brendan “2ReaL” Stockdale, a Challengers player who won the Toronto Open earlier this month alongside MajorManiak, Neptune of the Los Angeles Guerrillas, and former Luminosity player Brack, is the reported fourth member of the Mutineers.
Despite being in the bottom four of the league, Minnesota and Florida are only 10 CDL points (or one qualifying match win) behind the eighth-place Los Angeles Thieves. The Mutineers and RKKR, who are within 40 points of the struggling London Royal Ravens, who are in fourth place, can actually catch most of the middle-of-the-pack clubs.
On June 24, the CDL will resume play as Florida makes its debut against the New York Subliners.
