MarkyB denies rumors of Bance leaving Toronto Ultra after leaked DMs

Toronto Ultra Call of Duty League head coach Mark ‘MarkyB’ Bryceland has denied rumors that Ben ‘Bance’ Bance is leaving the team, after FaZe Clan’s Thomas ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto accidentally leaked DMs from the European star.

Toronto Ultra were one of the real surprise packages of the 2021 CDL season on Black Ops Cold War. After a rough start, they brought in Jamie ‘Insight’ Craven to replace Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni and their fortunes completely turned around.

Toronto became CDL Stage 2 champions and were constant contenders throughout the remainder of the season, even becoming runners-up at the 2021 CDL Championship. One of the best storylines for fans , though, was the revival of Bance, who was even contemplating retirement just weeks before their Stage 2 victory.

On November 22, though, ZooMaa accidentally leaked a series of DMs between Bance and LA Guerrillas’ Obaid ‘Asim’ Asim, in which Bance said he’s “probs [sic] getting dropped for Hicksy.”

ZooMaa accidentally showed some DMs between Asim and Bance — and it didn’t look good.

With Charlie ‘Hicksy’ Hicks being a highly-regarded amateur player and Toronto Ultra substitute, many fans believed the rumor could be true — but Mark has put an end to that discussion.

“I can confirm, we’re not making any changes to our starting roster,” he said. “Our season has started off incredibly in and out of game.”

He went on to explain in another comment that Bance had made a “tongue in cheek comment which he clearly never thought would be shared publicly and scrutinized.”

It sounds as though MarkyB has no plans to remove Bance from the Toronto Ultra starting roster, so Canadians need not worry about their franchise team’s leader for now.

Details on the 2022 CDL season are not yet public, but Toronto Ultra are one of just three teams to have stuck by their 2021 roster, alongside Atlanta FaZe and Minnesota RØKKR.
