Toronto Ultra is the official Call of Duty League franchise team of Toronto, Canada. It is owned and operated by OverActive Media. It is the successor to Splyce, which had competed continuously in Call of Duty since 2015. The team's main rival is Minnesota RØKKR, who they play in the "Battle of the North".

History[edit]

Modern Warfare[edit]

The CDL Toronto Franchise was officially announced by Activision Blizzard in their first quarter 2019 results as one of the first five Franchise League teams. Wi5dom12 was announced as the team's general manager on August 13, with MarkyB joining as strategic coach 2 weeks later on August 26. On October 24, at their launch party, the team branding was revealed as the Toronto Ultra and they announced their initial ten man roster of Loony, Methodz, Brack, Lucky, MettalZ, CleanX, Classic, Cammy, Bance, and Mayhem. The first starting roster of Loony, Methodz, MettalZ, Classic, and Cammy was announced on January 21, 2020.

At Launch Weekend, Ultra defeated Seattle Surge in map five before losing to home team Minnesota RØKKR 1-3. The following week in London, English player Bance was switched onto the starting roster for MettalZ. The team did not fair any better as they were beaten handily by London Royal Ravens and Paris Legion, knocked out in last place. The team stuck with the same roster for Week 3 and earned the same result - losing both matches and getting eliminated by Paris Legion for a second straight last place finish. Leading up to Week 5, the Ultra added MettalZ back into the starting lineup, replacing Loony. For the first time since Launch Weekend, the team won a series by defeating Florida. After that series, however, the went on to lose versus Dallas Empire and also their rematch against Florida Mutineers. On Twitter before Week 7, Loony's girlfriend claimed he was being "held hostage" in Toronto because he was not able to return home even though he was no longer on the starting lineup. Despite the distraction, the new lineup continued to improve by advancing out of the group stage for the first time after defeating New York Subliners and Minnesota RØKKR. They lost to OpTic Gaming Los Angeles in the semifinal but seemed to have finally established a consistent starting roster to improve with.

Toronto Ultra: Our Story
When we were thinking through what to call ourselves, our minds travelled through a galaxy of possibilities. Animals, historical connections, tough guy references, and even deep sounding monikers. But in the end, we felt we were just trying too hard.

We're Ultra, and like Toronto, we love that what we mean is whatever you represent. Proud, humble, smooth, or loud — whatever you are, Ultra is just the beginning of it. You fill in the rest.

Our logo is a representation of just that. We’re bringing Bellwoods' White Squirrel to the world's view. To us — it’s a show of our cities character. A symbol that even the smallest parts of what make us who we are, are worth celebrating.

Cementing our spirit — our bright colours and bold wordmark are anything but dull. But then, we’ve never looked to blend in — we’re more than happy to stand out, and stand tall.
