Seattle Surge superstar Pred has been named the first-ever Call of Duty League Rookie of the Year after one of the most memorable rookie seasons in the Call of Duty League era.
Pred, alongside his duo rookie Sib, were the only two players from this year’s rookies class to come out victorious at a Major event this year. Both players dominated during Major III and secured Seattle Surge’s first ever major tournament victory in the franchise’s three-year life span.
In Pred’s rookie regular season he held the fourth highest kill/death ratio in the league at 1.09, which was first among all submachine gun players, and of course first among all rookie players.
In Hardpoint, he was first in kills per 10 minutes in the entire league, sixth in kill/death ratio, and fourth in damage per 10 minutes. Looking over at Control, he was again, first in kills per 10 minutes, eighth in kill/death ratio, and sixth in damage per 10 mins — making him top-10 in all six major respawn categories. On top of that, in Search and Destroy he also was top-10 in kills per round and first blood percentage and top-20 in kill/death ratio.
Not only did Pred lift the Major III trophy, and now the 2022 Rookie of the Year award, but he was crowned the Major III Most Valuable Player, and yesterday was also named in the All-Star first team alongside Cellium, Dashy, and Shotzzy. Pred was widely respected as a top-three MVP candidate this year among the community, and his peers.
So far during Championship Weekend, Pred is already averaging a 1.14 kill/death ratio in Seattle’s map five victory against London Royal Ravens yesterday, and today they’ll face Atlanta FaZe at 3:00 PM PT — a team they have a 3-2 record against this season, which includes beating them twice at Major III.
Leading up to Pred’s rookie season as a professional player, he dominated the Asia/Pacific region with Australian Call of Duty royalty Shockz and Louqa who both played for Paris Legion in 2019, and Australian legend Fighta, who also played in the CWL era under Mindfreak. Pred secured close to 30 Challenger tournament wins during Modern Warfare and Cold War.
