The Minnesota RØKKR have overcome all the challenges of the regular season, all the dominance of the top teams in Call of Duty, and are the Major V champions. After a historic upper bracket run, and even more iconic reverse sweep in the grand finals, the RØKKR have cemented themselves in the history books of CoD esports, and showcased to the world the absolute heights and excitement Call of Duty esports can bring.   

Everyone knew playing on LAN would be an upgrade compared to an online-only league, but no one could’ve expected the level up several teams received over the weekend, not only just Minnesota, but something about this tournament let teams live up to a potential their fans had only dreamed of before. This upgrade, these performances, lead to many fans considering the Major V tournament to be the best seen in the game for years. 

Amidst it, all were those key players, those clutch masters who made an incredible weekend happen, four players who put in the hurt in the server, and the amazement in the crowd.

ATTACH - HE’S NEVER LET US DOWN BEFORE

The match itself was probably a miserable experience in those first four maps, but the bounce back was stuff of legends Minnesota ultimately showed them and the league why they're slowly rising as a huge threat for many, and one of those key reasons has been world champion Dillon "Attach" Price. 

To put it plainly, Attach on the AK-74u is nothing short of crisp. Against the Ultra, Attach was constantly zoning in the correct areas of the map, putting in the right amount of pressure on objectives, and doing it all while keeping an impressive K/D on every round. This guy is crazy on the sticks, and pairing him with Preston "Priestahh" Greiner, has proven to be an incredible recipe for success for Minnesota. This SMG duo is clean and deadly, and its Attach’s constant ability to win challenges and impeccable timing that still keeps him at the top of the scene this far into his career. He’s crafty, he’s sneaky, he’s everything you need for a team to crush the competition, and he’s a big reason as to why Minnesota was capable of claiming their first trophy.

STANDY- THE YOUNG GUN

Standy’s praises have been sung, especially after the hype of winning grand finals MVP. In the finals, his fast, aggressive, and pestering play is what always kept Atlanta from having a stable round, or it’s what kept Minnesota in the series. He played like a maniac and provided further proof for his recognition.

Standy’s been a core piece for the roster since the start. He played big in the finals against Toronto, especially in map six, where he had the highest K/D on the map, and was continually helping Minnesota maintain an edge.

LANIMAL – THE GRIND PAYS OFF FOR CLASSIC

Classic is a player with a long history in Call of Duty, much like many of his counterparts. However, unlike some of the more popular and successful players in the league, Classic  has never been able to claim a trophy as his own. He’s been there though, way back in the Ghosts days. Since then, Classic hasn’t seen a lot of success across the multiple titles, but now, he’s proven to the world his worth with this latest major performance. When the going got tough, Classic is there to round out his team to be the key fourth man that brings the power, and brings the force. After such a long and tenured history without a title, Classic and the rest of the Seattle Surge, have shown to be true players, that have overcome their season’s reputation.

INSIGHT - HE ALMOST HAD IT

Toronto has had to come into 2021 with something to prove. A major win in their belt at the start of the season and strong performances year-round, ensures their place as a very frightening squad, and all of their players haven't dropped a beat this season. 

In their match against OpTic, Insight worked that aggressive and skilful magic they’re known for. The stone-cold focus and targeting from the main ARs, and the explosive power coming in from the SMGs, make Ultra just so incredibly difficult to crack. While Chicago was able to snag a win on the S&D, it was in the respawns that the Ultrashowcased just how dominant they can be. Insight’s speed and timing puts him as one of the best AR players in the league, and after such a dominant season, falling short in this grand finals, shouldn’t erase all that success.
