Toronto Ultra's Methodz benched ahead of Stage Two

Toronto Ultra's Methodz benched ahead of Stage Two

Just three days removed from the end of Stage One of the 2021 CDL season, Toronto Ultra has become the first franchise to make a change ahead of Stage Two.

Toronto Ultra's Methodz benched ahead of Stage Two

Fresh off a top-eight placement at the Stage One Major, the Toronto Ultra is the first franchise to make some form of roster change ahead of Stage Two which begins on March 18th.

Main assault rifle player Anthony "Methodz" Zinni announced he has been demoted to the bench, despite impressing throughout the opening stage of the competition.

It is unclear as to why Methodz has been benched, and with the Ultra yet to make any form of official statement, speculation as to why the change has been made is rife.

The news could mark the debut of Toronto's substitute Jamie "Insight" Craven, an amateur talent from the UK that burst onto the competitive scene as part of the Team Singularity roster that finished in the top 12 in the 2019 world championships.
