OpTic Texas have officially announced the signing of Challengers player Byron ‘Prolute’ Vera as a temporary replacement for Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal, who is out through injury.
OpTic Texas is one of the top teams in the Call of Duty League, topping Dexerto’s CDL power rankings and winning the first Major of the season.
iLLeY was also a key player for the team. While teammates Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell and Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro aren’t the conspicuous highlight players, his play calls have been critical to the team’s success, particularly at Search and Destroy.
While iLLeY tried to cover up his thumb injury at the Pro-Am Classic, he ultimately failed to prevail and was replaced by OpTic’s substitute, Jordon General.
While much of the community believes that General made a good case for being a CDL player and not on the bench at the Pro-Am Classic, optics have chosen another Challengers star to better fill the void left by iLLeY.
Inside Steps Prolute, who has been a top talent on the amateur scene for a while and even played for the New York Subliners Academy in 2021.
This will only be a temporary change once iLLeY fully recovers, but could represent a great opportunity for Prolute to finally earn their place in the league under one of the most recognized brands in esports.
The OpTic Texas CDL listing for Major 3 will be:
- Seth “Scump” Abner
- Brandon “Dashy” Otell
- Anthony “Shotzzy” Cuevas Castro
- Byron “Prolute” Vera
