Clayster Blasts CDL Organisers After 'Lackadaisical' COVID-19 Precautions

Clayster Blasts CDL Organisers After 'Lackadaisical' COVID-19 Precautions

If declining viewership, broadcast talent contract issues, a last-minute ruleset reveal, and an overwhelming pessimistic vibe wasn't enough for the Call of Duty League, how about throwing in some lackadaisical COVID-19 precautions to their first live event of the year resulting in their players testing positive for the virus. 

The doom and gloom of a torrid pre-season and a game that has failed to capture the essence of Call of Duty esports, has continued to enter turmoil, as now some of the elite players ever are blasting the organisers for their Boston-breached COVID-19 regulations. 

Following the conclusion of the CDL Kickoff Classic, a pre-season warm-up showcasing the brand-new rosters, three-time world champion James "Clayster" Eubanks has now hit out at the league after testing positive for the virus.

Clayster Tests Positive Days After CDL Kickoff Classic

New York Subliners' run at the Kickoff Classic way the organisation get off to a solid start, beating Boston Breach and Minnesota ROKKR on their way to the semi-finals, although a renewed Seattle Surge side proved too strong to make the final two.

However, the problems off-field have mounted, as Clayster tested positive for coronavirus just a matter of days after the event, and has now lashed out at the CDL for not "protecting players".

The Call of Duty esports stalwart continued, "Absolute breakdown from the CDL to only require one negative test on Thursday for players and have zero rules for fans (even though we pushed for no fans, daily testing for players/staff) and of course there's a ton of positive tests coming from this weekend. So braindead."

CDL Pros Lash Out At Whimsical Precautions

Continuing the onslaught in the league's direction, Los Angeles Thieves' newest prince Dylan "Envoy" Hannon also chimed in. With an element of sarcasm, Envoy said, "Let’s promote no masks front row all weekend too, barely 6 feet from our walkout places.

"I’m watching staff have masks on their chins, talent taking pics with fans and seeing them backstage minutes after."

Envoy infamously tested positive for the virus following a previous CDL event, putting his 2021 World Championships in jeopardy. Despite recovering, and testing negative a mere day before the Championships kicked off, the former OpTic man and his duo Seth "Scump" Abner have both admitted the lack of preparation due to the hours of quarantine during that time definitely impacted their overall finish.

To end the social media barrage in the direction of the league representatives, Clayster added, "Sure, had fun at the event, but we need to do better and tighten things up moving forward. Doing ourselves, our fans, and all of the staff a disservice to continue allowing lackadaisical rules."
