London Royal Ravens, the previously-leaked team name of ReKTGlobal’s London Call of Duty League franchise slot, has finally been confirmed.
ReKTGlobal has revealed branding for the London Royal Ravens who will be competing in the Call of Duty League starting in 2020.
The team name, London Royal Ravens, stems from the legend of the Tower of London ravens. It is said that the kingdom and the Tower of London will fall if the six resident ravens ever leave the fortress.
There are seven ravens at the Tower today – the required six and one to spare. Charles II is thought to have been the first to insist that the ravens of the Tower be protected after he was warned that the crown and the Tower itself would fall if they left.
Managed by esports veteran Michael ‘ODEE’ O’Dell and featuring a starting lineup of power players Wuskin, Skrapz, Dylan, Jurd and Rated, the London Royal Ravens say they are ‘hungry, passionate, and scrappy’ and look forward to bringing the championship title to the UK.
The players for the London Royal Ravens CoD team – as revealed a few weeks ago – are as follows:
- Brad ‘Wuskin’ Marshall: One the best Assault Rifle players on the scene, Wuskin has proven to be an incredibly skilled AR player
- Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall: Twin brother to Wuskin, Skrapz has proven himself against top opposition
- Dylan ‘Dylan’ Henderson: Reporting a breakout season in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Dylan is renowned as one of the best submachine gun players in the Call of Duty World League and continues to perform at the highest level of competitive Call of Duty
- Jordan “Jurd” Crowley: Bringing experience to the team, along with consistent individual performances that set him apart from other competitive esports players, Jurd is a household name among the Call of Duty community and has earned over $250,000 in prize money during his career
- Rhys ‘Rated’ Price: Competing professionally since 2013, Rated brings experience and strong in-game leadership to the Royal Ravens
A statement in a press release read: “The London Royal Ravens represent the guardians of London. In remaining true to the legend, the Royal Ravens will protect their crown by ensuring the kingdom doesn’t fall and that they bring the championship title back to the homeland.”
