The newly-minted Dallas Empire franchise of the Call of Duty League officially announced today that Thomas “Tommey” Trewren will be joining the squad as the team’s first reserve player, pending approval from the league.
Tommey has been a part of the competitive Call of Duty scene for most of the past decade, serving on the international stage across big-name teams such as Dignitas, Vitality, Epsilon Esports, Spylce, and Team Reciprocity.
He most recently served time on Sicario Gaming and has played at every Call of Duty World Championship in the game’s history, one of only nine players to have done so, two other of which are also on the Dallas Empire.
He is also one of only two players in the pro-scene to have participated in every million-dollar pro Call of Duty tournament, all the way back to his first competitive title in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare back in 2010.
Dallas Empire also announced that Tommey will relocate to the team’s headquarters in Dallas later this year to begin practicing with the squad ahead of the start of the Call of Duty League in 2020.
The team will practice at owning org Envy Gaming’s new training facility in the city, complete with state-of-the-art practice gaming and training equipment.
The Dallas Empire is one of the inaugural 12 teams participating in the first franchised season of the Call of Duty League, which will each team take a city as it’s franchise base, much like the NBA and NFL.
The team owner and operator is Envy Gaming, Inc., one of the highest winning and most historic teams in Call of Duty history, who are also based out of Dallas.
The team features some of the top talent in the Call of Duty pro-scene, including Clayster, Shotzzy, Huke, ILLeY, and Crimsix.
The team will play multiple home matches in North Texas in the 2020 season, and you can find more about them at their Twitter here.
