Following the creation of the new look OpTic Gaming Call of Duty Roster, FaZe Clan’s Dillon “Attach” Price has uploaded a video of their first scrim.
OpTic Gaming’s new squad was unveiled on Sunday May 6th during an episode of Vision, with Matthew “FormaL” Piper and Damon “Karma” Barlow leaving the team after more than three years and Sam “Octane” Larew and Anthony “Methodz” Zinni joining from Luminosity Gaming and Team Kaliber respectively.
The change marked the end of an era for a team who had been incredibly dominant across multiple games, amassing a total of 18 championships, including the CWL Championship 2017.
Despite their previous success, the Call of Duty: World War II season saw a series of disappointing results for the original roster, including losing two best of fives to FaZe Clan at the CWL Stage One Playoffs, which eventually led to the change.
The aim of picking up Octane and Methodz, who have both won championships this season, for OpTic Gaming is to get back to winning form, but after FaZe Clan’s Attach uploaded a video of the two teams scrimming, it looks like they still have a way to go.
As both Attach and OpTic’s Seth “Scump” Abner point out, it is the team’s very first scrim, so their results are unlikely to be as good as FaZe’s, who have been teaming together since the start of the year, but with FaZe’s decisive win of 250-126 on Gibraltar Hardpoint OpTic will definitely be going back to the drawing board.
Fans of the squad shouldn’t get too worried yet, as they’ll be competing in Division B of the CWL Pro League Stage Two, which kicks off on May 29th, meaning they still have plenty of time to practice.
It looks like Attach also expects the team to improve, as he said the video would be good for them to look back at when they win a tournament to highlight exactly how far they will have come.
It's gonna be a good video to look back on after you guys win a tournament. Will show the progress

Could we see OpTic Gaming return to their previous power with this new roster?
