Toronto Ultra has made a massive statement in the 2023-24 Call of Duty League, as the inaugural Major 1 was left with the rampant footprints of the four superstars who walked out of Boston with the trophy in their hands.

Having beaten Atlanta FaZe in a stellar 4-1 victory in the Grand Final, Ultra stunned the league by showing just how far ahead they are, becoming worthy winners of the Major and setting the benchmark for the quality needed to be successful.

Along the way, Ultra's star players also set personal player records, epitomising their hard work and raw talent.

Collectively, Toronto shone on all fronts, but most specifically, it was their Hardpoint displays which had fans breathless. Having not lost a single map on that game mode all tournament, they extended their unbeaten streak to 12 straight Hardpoints - a league-wide record according to Breaking Point.

European SMG player Tobias "CleanX" Juul Jønsson set accolades of his own, too, having become the joint-first player to reach a CDL Major Grand Final in all five years of the franchised league (via BrianStats1), as he continues to ramp up the conversation for becoming the best EU player ever.

CleanX's SMG duo Dylan "Envoy" Hannon also equalled league-wide records as he became the most winningest player on LAN during the CDL era, joining Preston "Priestahh" Greiner at the top of the tree.

On the flipside, Atlanta FaZe star Tyler "aBeZy" Pharris also equalled an unfortunate record in Call of Duty history, as he became the player to have lost the most Grand Finals, alongside Jordan "JKap" Kaplan, with 14.

At least aBeZy has the grace of falling back on him and Chris "Simp" Lehr making waves in the record books as a duo. Toronto Ultra might not be done there with the Major wins, as they might just kick on from here and assert their dominance over the rest of the league, given they are already so far ahead of the skill curve.
