We’re heading into the final major of for the Modern Warfare II season. Four tournaments so far and we’ve seen four different squads come away with Major victories.

Over those six months of CDL gameplay, fans have gotten to watch nine different rookies play for the first time in the League. Breaking Point reached out to the CDL coaches to get their perspectives on where each rank amongst themselves.

Let us know how you rank the rookies in the 2022-23 class and which players you think will finish in the top 3 at the end of the season!
