Misfits Gaming was one of the Overwatch esports organizations to have first picks into entering the CDL. Misfits also operate the Florida Mayhem in the Overwatch League. The Misfits organization is based in the UK and has teams competing, in addition to the OWL, LoL, CS:GO and Super Smash Bros.: Ultimate. The organization was founded in 2016 and originally began their esports launch with League of Legends.

One of the biggest signings for the Florida Mutineers was Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson, a back-to-back Call of Duty World League tournament champion. Prestinni was part of eUnited, one of the esports organizations that would not participate in the new Call of duty League. Prestinni had some lows while playing with eUnited, which was featured in an exclusive eUnited YouTube episode. Prestinni explained some of the mental blocks that are experienced playing in front of a large crowd, and there was a point during the regular season where eUnited seemed to have lost their mojo. However, things turned around quickly after the roster change between Jkap and Simp which shifted the entire team’s path. eUnited ended up winning the CWL Finals and the CWL Championship, and Prestinni recently showed off his championship ring. With everything that Prestinni had to go through in the last season of the CWL, he brings a lot of experience not only on the playing field but also off of it.
Preston Sanderson is joined by Colt “Havok” McLendon and Chance “Maux” Moncivaez, two ex-Gen.G Call of Duty players who had a decent 2019 season. Havok and Maux were part of a strong CoD team that was close to winning one major in the season. They lucked out against 100 Thieves at the Anaheim, losing in the end 3 games to 1. Despite the loss, both players had some incredible moments and definitive wins against top tier teams like OpTic Gaming and eUnited included. With Havok and Maux having already played with each other, they won’t need to work a lot to understand each other’s gameplay.
Lastly, Cesar “Skyz” Bueno and Bradley “Frosty” Bergstrom join the Mutineers to add some spice to the line-up. Both players had some struggles in the 2019 season. Skyz played with Luminosity Gaming, who on paper, had a phenomenal team. However, the team performed poorly overall and Skyz had gained a lot of experience from that. Frosty joined the newest esports team in the CWL; Midnight Esports. He joined them after playing with Enigma6 for roughly a year. However, Frosty also had a tough time with Midnight Esports during the later part of the CoD season.
With this unique group, the Florida Mutineers will definitely be an exciting team to watch in the upcoming Call of Duty League season.
