Minnesota RØKKR's Bold Move: Benching Attach and Betting on Fame for CDL Comeback

Recommended Posts

The Minnesota RØKKR is gearing up for a dramatic roster overhaul in the wake of their underwhelming performance at the 2023 Call of Duty League's Major Three cycle.

In a surprising move, the organization has benched former 2015 CoD world champion Attach, replacing him with rising star Kevin "Fame" Bonanno. Signed as a substitute in July, Fame will now join forces with Afro, Bance, and Cammy as they prepare for CDL Major Four.

Minnesota's rollercoaster journey saw them clinch a third-place finish at the CDL's second Major of 2023 in Boston. However, their fortunes took a downturn as they faltered in the online qualifying matches for Major Three, culminating in a crushing defeat by the Los Angeles Thieves. The RØKKR now find themselves grappling with an eight-match losing streak.

Fame faces the unenviable challenge of stepping into the popular Attach's shoes while also working to turn Minnesota's fortunes around. Currently, in eighth place in the CDL Points standings, the RØKKR is just 20 points ahead of the ninth-place Vegas Legion. With only the top eight franchises securing a spot at the year-end CoD Champs, every upcoming match is crucial to Minnesota's postseason dreams.

Minnesota coach Loony emphasized the team's commitment to remaining competitive throughout the season, stating, "The first step is bringing in Fame. We're going to continue to evaluate the team throughout this stage after the home series and if further change is needed, we will be making it because again we want to be competing for championships."

Fame's CDL debut is set for April 1, when the RØKKR take on the Florida Mutineers in their first qualifier match for Major Four. The team's fans and the entire CDL community will undoubtedly be watching closely to see if this roster shakeup can provide the spark Minnesota needs to reignite its competitive fire and vie for the coveted championship title.

Being on an an eight-match losing streak by The Minnesota RØKKR will definitely affect the confidence of the whole team. It's what losing does to you and if you don't have any good win as quickly as possible, it's going to get worst as you will hit rock bottom.
