Owned by NRG Esports and managed by OpTic Gaming founder Hector "Hecz" Rodriguez, the Chicago Huntsmen has quickly established itself as a fan favourite team before the season has even got underway.
Consisting of a legendary partnership alongside players that excelled last season, this team is being tipped for success.
Headlined by the return of the T2P partnership, Scump and FormaL have reunited for the 2020 season. Looking to redeem themselves after difficult Black Ops 4 seasons, these two veterans will be hungry for success this season. With the players alongside them, there is a real possibility for the Huntsmen to be contending towards the top of the table for the majority of the season.
Arcitys resuming his role as the main Assault Rifle player makes a lot of sense considering he excelled on Black Ops 4 in the respective role. Supporting Envoy, Gunless and Scump with covering fire will be the key to securing control of the maps and their objectives.
Envoy was part of the wave of young breakout talents that demonstrated their capabilities throughout last season. With Hecz putting a lot of faith into him, it is important for him to perform well throughout the course of the season.
On paper, the Huntsmen is going to be one of the stronger teams competing in the league. The team looks to have found a strong balance between raw slaying power and AR prowess, something that some teams don't have. It's going to be interesting to see how it performs throughout the season but expect them to be comfortably in the top half of the table.
