As we inch closer to the launch of Modern Warfare, more and more Call of Duty League teams are revealing their rosters. While most rosters won’t be completely full until late October, a majority of teams have signed their starting five. Some teams are waiting until everything is finalized to make an official announcement.
Call of Duty Paris, however, is not one of those teams. On Thursday, after weeks of waiting, they announced what looks to be their entire roster, substitution spots included. Of course, this announcement is still technically pending as it awaits league approval.
Call of Duty Paris signs a global roster for 2020
In a Call of Duty League first, Paris has signed an entirely global roster. A couple of weeks ago, we reported on a rumor that some Australian players were receiving interest from CDL teams. This rumor has come to fruition, as three Aussies are representing Paris in 2020.
Here’s the official Call of Duty Paris roster:
- Luke ‘Louqa’ Rigas
- Conrad ‘Shockz’ Rymarek
- Denhold ‘Denz’ Taylor
- Matthew ‘KiSMET’ Tinsley
- Timothy ‘Phantomz’ Landis
- Zach ‘Zed’ Denyer
- Paul ‘Breszy’ Breszynski
Your Paris Call of Duty Roster
Pending league approval

The Australian trio of Louqa, Shockz, and Denz makes up the majority of this roster. Two Americans fall behind in KiSMET and Phantomz, as do the Europeans, Zed and Breszy.
This roster comes as a bit of a shock (no pun intended), as there’s not a true superstar on this team. While Denz and Zed made big names for themselves during Black Ops 4, many feel this team will be outclassed in terms of talent compared to the other CDL rosters.
However, Paris obviously feels that these up and coming players will gel well and form a solid squad. One aspect of this team that might hold them back, however, is the culture clash. Four different countries are represented here. Between the strong accents and different vernacular, there could be some early obstacles to overcome.
