|London Royal Ravens: Our Story
|The London Royal Ravens represent England. Our Managing Director, Michael O’Dell (ODEE), is a veteran in the Esports world, with strong ties within London and the UK. In addition to ODEE’s representation, every region of the UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) and Ireland is represented through our players and entire coaching staff.
Our home region is known for their pride and their extreme enthusiasm for the Call of Duty game franchise and the esports industry. When they cheer for the home team, we know they will be proud.
Our team is hungry, passionate, and scrappy. We look forward to bringing the Call of Duty League Championship title home.
The idea behind our name, the London Royal Ravens, stems from the legend of the Tower Ravens. It has been said that the Kingdom and the Tower of London will fall if the six resident ravens ever leave the fortress.
We have seven ravens at the Tower today – the required six and one to spare. Additionally, Charles II is thought to have been the first to insist that the ravens of the Tower be protected after he was warned that the Tower and, thus, the crown itself would fall if they left.
Our team represents the guardians of London and we look forward to them protecting their crown.
