Proposed Miami Heretics CDL team set for all-Spanish roster
After three years under the Florida Mutineers' branding, Misfits Group are set to merge their Call of Duty League team with Team Heretics.
Mutineers, who have won a number of trophies in the Call of Duty era, specifically in its inaugural season back in 2020, have struggled to put together championship-challenging teams for the previous two seasons, relying on breakout players from Challengers or pick-up players who have recently been removed from other teams.
Having built a reputation for forming low-budget teams in recent years, this could now be set to change, as reports have emerged that they will be sunsetting their brand to form Miami Heretics.
Team Heretics and Florida Mutineers set to merge in CDL
Heretics has long been an organisation associated with Call of Duty, having started its journey back in the Black Ops 3 era before bowing out due to the extraordinary buy-in prices for the CDL.
The Heretic ownership group has openly confessed that they would love to be involved in the CDL, and now it appears that their dreams have come to fruition, as reports from Jacob Hale at Dexerto suggest a partnership is afront.
Patents for a "Miami Heretics" trademark have also been filed, and it's expected that this partnership will come into play after the Call of Duty League 2022-23 season, although the Mutineers aren't expected to make Champs (given a 50-point deficit going into Stage 5), an announcement could come sooner.

With the merger set in stone, rumours have also begun circulating around their proposed roster, and it seems like Heretics will be bringing through their Spanish core that won fans over in their first stint in Call of Duty Esports.
According to reports from The Rotation, Miami Heretics want to form an all-Spanish roster consisting of Alejandro "Lucky" López, Adrian "MettalZ" Serrano, Juan "JurNii" Antonio González Muñoz, and Javier "Vikul" Milagro.
The trio of Lucky, MettalZ, and JurNii has played together under the Heretics banner before, and all secured different CDL sub spots when the League was formed, before heading back to Europe to win multiple Challengers events between them.
Together, they won the CDC Europe 2022 Elite Stage 1 Playoffs as Minnesota ROKKR Academy, during the Vanguard season, finishing 4th at Challengers Champs, before splitting up for the MW2 season, where they have all won top Challengers events in their respective rosters.
Meanwhile, they'll look to be paired with existing Mutineers star Vikul, who has already conquered Challengers and has begun proving himself in the CDL already.
While a championship-calibre roster might take some time to grow, you can expect great vibes from this proposed Miami Heretics camp.
