In the mad dash to the Call of Duty League launch weekend, teams are starting to assemble their substitute players. Before yesterday, the Chicago Huntsmen had only their five core players, without any backup. Now, enter the General.

Watch the video in this tweet to get to know the man and where his nickname came from:

The self-proclaimed best sixth man in the league, Jordan General, will be traveling with the five other Chicago Huntsmen gamers to Minneapolis, Minnesota, for the first official event of the league.

Here are a few more facts about the General:

Birthplace: United States
Birthday: October 1, 1998
Twitter: @JordanGeneral
Twitch: JordanGeneral
Notable Accomplishments: The General has been competing in Call of Duty since 2015 and has a vast amount of tournament experience. He recently scored a fourth place in the Call of Duty World League Championship 2019 with Enigma6 Group. The same team also placed 14th in the CWL Pro League 2019 and sixth at the CWL Anaheim 2019.

General is joining a star-studded roster, including Matthew “FormaL” Piper, Seth “Scump” Abner, Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson, Dylan “Envoy” Hannon, and Peirce “Gunless” Hillman.

General gave a shout out to the Chicago Huntsmen CEO Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez and the rest of the team after the signing was announced:

This isn’t the only signing the Chicago Huntsmen had made in the last while. They recently signed John “x2Pac ThuGLorD” Hartley as an analyst, as well.

A couple of core roster players, FormaL and Arcitys, made the news a few weeks back when they tweeted about their displeasure with the matches for the first split of the regular season.

Their chief complaint is the fact that they need to travel abroad and only play one match. In Week 2, Chicago Huntsmen travel to London and only play Paris Legion on the first day of the weekend event.

They aren’t the only team affected by travel and limited play. It’s just how the league is set up. It’s a city-based league system, and since each team hosts an event per split, traveling for one match is just the nature of the beast.

Chicago Huntsmen is looking like an excellent team as they have three world champions and a wealth of experience. They will be getting their first taste of official league play when they take on OpTic Gaming LA during the launch weekend, hosted by the Minnesota Røkkr.
