After a huge clash between Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter and former teammate Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, the Dallas Empire star has hit out at his critics and the Greenwall in a series of impassioned posts online.
Headed into the first Call of Duty League LAN in over a year, the Stage 4 Major, Crimsix’s Empire side set out to face OpTic Chicago in the first round. This came a little over a week after FormaL called out Crimsix for being “carried” to his rings and saying that he should’ve dropped the three-time world champion during the Black Ops 3 season.
So, it seemed written in the stars when the two teams were seeded to face each other in the opening round of the LAN event. Most fans had OpTic taking the series with relative ease. Instead, Dallas hit them with a quick 3-0 sweep, and Crimsix spoke out online after the match.
A few hours after the match, he tweeted saying that “today’s match is a prime example of how you act after a win vs your rivals,” adding that “Rivals are always pushing you to be better.”
By the way, today’s match is a prime example of how you act after a win vs your rivals. You don’t scream in their face and kick them when they’re down. That is how cowards act and that isn’t me and it isn’t us either.
Rivals are always pushing you to be better.

Shortly after, he followed that up with a Reddit comment, on a thread discussing that very tweet.
“I know exactly what I’m doing,” he said. “I don’t think you realize how hard it was for me to hold back talking sh*t to people who go outta their way on a consistent basis to ruin my rep. Of course I’m going to pat myself on the back, then I’m going to put out a tweet like that to f**k with the Greenwall’s nutcases even more.”
The Empire man continued: “Calling me soft but I’m getting attacked off a win based off my weight, haircut, K/D, and that fucking beautiful Miami Blue Porsche GT3RS I have…”
At the end, he shouts out his former Complexity and Evil Geniuses teammate Patrick ‘Aches’ Price, one of OpTic’s biggest enemies at the most important events.
“I have become you, master,” he said. “I will fight your fight, Patrick Price.”
It goes without saying that there’s no love lost between Crim and the Greenwall despite all the championships he brought them and, this time at least, he has come out victorious.
