A new Instagram photo from Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez further strengthens the rumor of the OpTic Gaming Call of Duty roster parting ways.
After being formed during the CoD: Advanced Warfare season, the OpTic Gaming roster of Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, and Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow won more tournaments than any other roster over multiple years.
Although they came home with a 7th place finish at CoD Champs during the Black Ops 3 season when they were heavily favored to win, a victory during Infinite Warfare solidified them as one of the best teams to ever grace the competitive scene.
However, a shaky start at the beginning of the CoD: WWII season had many questioning whether or not the historic roster would make a change, with some of their worst placings coming in recent months.
Now that ‘Rostermania’s is in full swing prior to the start of Stage Two at the CWL Pro League, rumors have been flying regarding the possibility of FormaL and Karma parting ways with the roster, which would leave Scump and Crimsix as a team of two.
Following a post on Instagram by H3CZ, the CEO of OpTic Gaming, of Scump and Crimsix possibly recording an interview for the organization’s ‘Vision’ series, some believe the rumors are potentially strengthened.
As of writing, no information has been released by any players or organization in regards to the OpTic Gaming roster, with everything being speculation.
All CWL Stage 2 teams will need to make their prospective changes prior to 'roster lock' on Monday, May 7th.
