CDL announces Scump watch party and fans are ecstatic
The CDL announced Major 2’s co-streamers and included recently retired CoD legend Seth ‘Scump’ Abner among the participants.
The CDL Major 2 Qualifiers kicked off on January 13. Little did we know it would be Scump’s final match before retiring. OpTic Texas defeated Boston Breach 3-2 in the King’s final match, and he went down swinging with a series-leading 1.22 KD and 94 kills.
Two days after OpTic’s dominant showing, Scump called it a career. In his farewell video, Abner spoke about his new focus on creating content, stating, “Content is always something I have wanted to do. I’ll still be attending events and meeting people, which I couldn’t do as a player.”
Scump has his first opportunity to sit back and approach CoD from a different perspective, hosting a watch party for the remainder of Major 2.
