With two Call of Duty Challengers Cups and now a NA Challengers Elite Series Championship under their belt, the NYSL Academy team has become a dominant group in the amateur Call of Duty scene. With players ranging from having Call of Duty League experience, to players who have tore up online 2Ks, to players who are brand new and hungry for their first shot, the NYSL Academy team is booming with talent capable of playing in the top echelon of Call of Duty esports.
SaintsRenato "Saints" Forza
A seasoned veteran in the Call of Duty esports space, Renato “Saints” Forza joins the NYSL Academy after playing for the Los Angeles Guerillas in the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League. Though the league has just started, Saints helped lead the team to multiple Challengers Cups and even secured the NA Challengers Elite Series Championship. Don’t be surprised if you see Saints on the main stage before the end of the year. Frequently featured on the league’s “Players to Watch” segment during the main Call of Duty League broadcast, Saints is more than capable of packing a solid punch for a middle-of-the-pack team in search of a boost to the top tier.
ProluteByron "Prolute" Vera
Memed on by all his teammates because he can take it and because he’s GOOD, Byron “Prolute” Vera was the second to join the NYSL Academy team just after Diamondcon, who now plays at the top tier. One of the more up-and-coming young guns on the scene at only 19 years old, Prolute is quickly making a name for himself as a regular during 8s matches featuring the top pros. He’s fast, smart, and is an extremely positive presence to the team.
SpartKris "Spart" Cervantez
Kris “Spart” Cervantez rose through the Atlanta Faze Academy, logged some reps in with the Los Angeles Guerillas and eventually landed on the NYSL Academy roster. An aggressive SMG player who has seen success in online 2K tournaments, Spart is eager to get back to the top tier of Call of Duty play. And with the experience he has, as well as several Challengers Cups under his belt, there’s no reason he can’t get back there this year.
The French phenom is one of the most hopeful prospects in Call of Duty. HyDra has been grinding the amateur Call of Duty scene for four years waiting to turn of eligible age to earn a spot in the Call of Duty League. Extremely well-rounded with capabilities of being able to fry with the SMG or hit insane sniper shots, HyDra brings a wealth of utility to the New York Subliners, helping them adapt to anything a new Call of Duty title can throw at them. Look for the Frenchman to make a statement in the league this season and draw attention to his name as a rising star in New York.
