OpTic Gaming’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter has issued a stern warning to 100 Thieves’ content team, claiming they were “getting in his face” while discussing pre-game strategies at CWL Anaheim.

After some great performances in Pool A, OpTic were unable to advance past 100 Thieves in the winners bracket semi-final, losing 3-1, meaning they will now face eUnited to keep their hopes of silverware alive.

The teams could meet again if 100 Thieves can beat Gen.G to reach their second consecutive grand final and OpTic successfully navigate the losers bracket, but Crimsix is eager to avoid another run in with his opponent’s content team.

Crimsix is fed up with 100 Thieves’ video team interfering with OpTic.

100 Thieves are currently producing some of the most in-depth content in Call of Duty, but Crimsix feels they are on the brink of crossing the line by getting too involved in the action.

The 2017 World Champion warned the 100T cameraman to “get out of his face” during pre-game strategy talks and practice otherwise “he won’t be getting that camera back”.

Crim immediately came under fire from fans who suggested that getting both sides of the story is needed for content, but the OpTic man hit back suggesting he’s not on the mainstage to create content for another team.

Nevertheless, the 27-year-old defended his former teammate and 100 Thieves CEO, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, from any blame, suggesting he didn’t instruct his team to act this way – Crim even stated his belief that they should be given a raise for “doing their job too well”.

Focus must now return on a positive result against eUnited in order to move one step closer to completing his personal goal of becoming the winningest player in CoD history.

Sources: 100 Thieves acquire OpTic’s CDL spot, represented as LA Thieves

Sources have told Dexerto that 100 Thieves are entering the Call of Duty League by purchasing the spot previously held by OpTic Gaming Los Angeles.

After initially declining to invest in a slot for the Call of Duty League’s inaugural 2020 season, 100 Thieves are re-entering CoD esports after all for the 2021 campaign and beyond.

The spot that had been OpTic Gaming Los Angeles’ has now transferred ownership to the prominent esports organization, and sources have reported that 100T will rebrand the team to LA Thieves.

Immortals Gaming Club, which had purchased OpTic Gaming and one of two Los Angeles CDL franchise spots, recently sold the Green Wall back to Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, who will remain in control of the brand.

The OpTic Gaming Los Angeles franchise will end after just one season of competing in the CDL.

At this time, it’s not yet clear whether the league will allow H3CZ to rebrand his Chicago Huntsmen franchise to OpTic. Since he’s already the CEO of Huntsmen, his reacquisition of the OpTic brand meant that control of one of the two teams would eventually have to change hands once again.

According to recent reports from Esports Talk, the CDL was taking the stance that franchises should remain tied to the cities they were initially founded in. Thus, if H3CZ and NRG wanted their team to take on the OpTic Gaming insignia, they would have to sell the Huntsmen spot and move their Call of Duty operations to Los Angeles.

However, in those same reports, it was indicated that despite their initial unwillingness to enter the CDL, 100 Thieves and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag acquiring a spot was not totally out of the question, and now it’s come to fruition.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in competitive Call of Duty was a highly successful one.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in Call of Duty esports was a very successful one; the team captured two major trophies in the then-called CoD World League and finished second in the CWL World Championship.

100T’s team became a fan-favorite, and when Nadeshot announced that they’d be leaving the esport due to the transition to franchising, many were left disappointed, especially considering Haag’s extensive CoD background.

The only question that remains now is concerning their roster – whether or not Nadeshot or his org will want to make any personnel changes remains to be seen, but if not, many will still expect the team to be a contender, considering that three of the four players are top-tier with championship experience.

CoD stars SlasheR and Kenny are returning to 100 Thieves as members of LA Thieves.

For SlasheR and Kenny, this will be their second stint with 100T after previously featuring for the org in its lone season of competition. Similarly, General Manager Eric ‘Muddawg’ Sanders is also returning to the red and black after leaving them for OpTic when the org parted ways from CoD esports.
