Florida Mutineers is the official Call of Duty League franchise team of Florida, United States. It is owned and operated by Misfits Gaming.

History[edit]

Modern Warfare[edit]

The franchise was announced on August 20, 2019. On August 26, the team signed one of the greatest console players of all time, OGRE2, as general manager. The team branding was revealed as the Florida Mutineers on October 28. After months of rumors, the team's first roster was officially revealed on December 2, with Prestinni, Havok, Maux, Skyz, and Frosty joining alongside Atura as coach. The Mutineers were the twelfth and final team to announce their initial roster. Streamer and former Halo player MaNiaC technically joined as the team's first substitute on December 11, but would only really be on the team as a content creator. Coach Atura was listed as a substitute on the Call of Duty League website on January 13, 2020.

The Mutineers opened their season with a game five win against Seattle Surge and a game five loss to Los Angeles Guerrillas at the inaugural Launch Weekend. In their first tournament weekend, Florida came out of Group A with the second seed after getting revenge against London Royal Ravens, who beat them in the first match, in the decider game. This set them up against undefeated Chicago Huntsmen in the semi finals. The Mutineers became the first team to defeat Chicago but their momentum ended as Atlanta FaZe took their own home series championship. On March 6, the day before Week 4 matches began, it was announced that Prestinni would be replaced by Fero at the event due to team approved personal reasons (later revealed to be anxiety and depression from COVID-19 and home sickness). Florida faced off against Atlanta FaZe in their first series, a rematch of the previous week's final and Atlanta once again took the series. The team was able to find their feet against New York Subliners and were then eliminated by Dallas Empire to place Top 6. After an extended break due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Mutineers looked to get back into form and they did just that by knocking out home series hosts Chicago Huntsmen in the semifinal and then Minnesota RØKKR in the final to win the Chicago Home Series. In the team's next play week, they hosted their own home series and would get double first rounded by the RØKKR and Subliners to finish dead last in their own event. Prestinni was traded to Chicago on May 18. Owakening was announced as a new player, replacing Maux, on May 22. He would show up immediately as the had the most impressive championship run in the CDL yet in Week 9. They beat the top three teams, Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, and Atlanta FaZe, and tied those three teams with their second championship of the season, cementing their place in the top tier of teams. Owakening had one of the best debuts ever and immediately threw his name into the rookie of the year conversation. The next weekend, Flroida once again made it to a Grand Final vs Atlanta but this time it wasn't close. Florida won 3-0 including the biggest domination blow out in CDL history, 235-70 on Hackney Yard. In Week 12, the Mutineers beat OpTic Gaming Los Angeles twice but fell to Dallas 0-3 in the semifinal. In the final week of the season, they fell to Dallas Empire two more times and missed the bracket stage for the first time since their own home series in Week 7. Florida finished the season in 3rd place with 230 CDL Points.
