Crep Protect Partners with Call Of Duty Champions, Chicago Huntsmen
We’re pleased to unveil our new partnership with the Chicago Huntsmen Call of Duty League franchise. Take a closer look at what to expect below.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be partnering with Call of Duty World Champions, the Chicago Huntsmen. As seasoned gamers ourselves, we have always been heavily involved in the world of esports, much before it was a multi-billion dollar industry.
As seasoned gamers ourselves, Crep Protect has always been heavily involved in the world of esports, much before it was a multi-billion dollar industry. In 1997, our founders were responsible for one of the first Counter-Strike 1.1 servers with a 56k modem in the U.K. which attracted players across the channel to compete in games.
Before Crep Protect was even thought of, our founders and core team bonded through our shared love of computer gaming, so much so that our new London headquarters boasts a games room with custom-built PC’s in a 5v5 setup.
With over 4 million combined social media followers, the Huntsmen have one of the largest fanbases in the world of esports. Personalities such as Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, Seth “Scump” Abner and Matthew “FormaL” Piper are three of the biggest names in Call of Duty.
Their previous organization, OpTic Gaming, was recognised by Forbes one of the most valuable brands in esports history. Competition wise, the team is also respected as the most decorated and successful team in Call of Duty history.
With 2019 drawing to a close and the announcement that Rodriguez and Abner were leaving OpTic Gaming to join NRG.GG and Co-CEO Andy Miller, it marked an introduction to the Chicago Huntsmen; a $25 million franchise in the 2020 Call of Duty League (CDL) with some of the games most widely respected and decorated players. The league will visit 12 host cities and it’s hometown arenas during an 8 month season.
The Chicago Huntsmen starting lineup includes Seth “Scump” Abner, Matthew “FormaL” Piper, Dylan “Envoy” Hannon, Peirce “Gunless” Hillman, and Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson. They are joined by fellow Huntsmen team members Jordan “General” General and Marcus “MBoZe” Blanks, alongside head coach Troy “Sender” Michaels and analyst John “x2Pac ThuGLorD” Hartley.
