Interview with Adrian Serrano (MeTTalZ), Professional Esports Player at CDL

A staple I do in all interviews in order to start things off is to ask that you elaborate a bit about yourself and a little about what the Call of Duty League is? For those, unfamiliar with these elements.

Adrian: Hello, my name is Adrian Serrano Martinez AKA “MeTTalZ”. I’m 19 years old and I’m a professional Call of Duty player from Barcelona, Spain. The Call of Duty League (or CDL) is theprofessional esports league for Call of Dutywith the 12 best teams in the world competing in it.

Obviously, the whole COVID-19 situation is causing problems with league organization and most organized events globally. How has this affected league play from your perspective?

Adrian: Right now, we’re playing our matches online, but I miss playing on LAN against other teams.The worst part of it all is that we can’t interact with fans online on match day the same way we would at live events.

Building on that, could you give us a general layout of what the new competition setup is like for the league?

Adrian: We play all of our matches online over a double-elimination weekend tournament format, the same way we would if we were on LAN. I’d rather play our league matches on LAN instead of online, but as a team, we’ve just had to get used to it.

Has this situation altered your training, in general how do you prepare for competing in this league?

Adrian: Honestly, not really. I prepare myself the same way for an online or LAN match: get out of bed, drink my coffee, and start my normal routine.

For a more fun type of question, what are your thoughts on Warzone and looking at Modern Warfare, what’s your personal favorite map in the game?

Adrian: I love Warzone! It’s a very nice way of disconnecting after a day of scrims. My favourite map is Hackney Yard.

Lastly I would like to leave a spot for you to say something or go over anything I might have missed during the interview?

Adrian: Coming from Spain, where there aren’t many opportunities for COD esports, I’m thankful for the opportunity to be here and do what I love. Thanks for supporting Ultra and keep cheering us on!
