History

Modern Warfare

The franchise was officially announced on September 13, 2019. Over the next few days, the team announced their initial coaching staff of Dominate, ShAnE, and Joee. On September 17, they announced not only their first player signing but also the first player signing in the history of the franchise league, wuskin. wuskin's brother, Skrapz, and Dylan joined the team on September 20. Irish SMG Jurd joined as the first non-Britsh player on September 28. A day later, the organization became the second franchise team to complete it's starting roster, with Rated joining as their 5th. On October 15, the team became the first Call of Duty League team to reveal their official name and branding, the London Royal Ravens. Seany joined as substitute on November 3 followed by MadCat on November 7. On January 23, 2020, the Royal Ravens announced their academy team, Royal Ravens Academy, with MadCat and Seany joined by Weeman, Nolson, and Defrag.

At Launch Weekend, the Royal Ravens dominated New York Subliners only to get dominated in return by Paris Legion. Going into their homestand, the team had questions marks but were expected to perform in front of their legendary English crowd. The crowd delivered, but the Royal Ravens did not as they were eliminated by Dallas Empire in the semifinals after winning their group.

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.
