Dashy explains why having Crimsix on OpTic is so important

Everyone knows that Call of Duty veteran Ian ‘Crimsix‘ Porter is an integral member of OpTic Gaming‘s pro team, and teammate Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell has outlined exactly why. 

OpTic Gaming have always been one of the more dominant forces in Call of Duty esports history, especially after star player Crimsix joined the team back in 2014.

While he’s always been surrounded by some of the best players in the game, many still attribute a large portion of OpTic’s success to Crim’s well-renowned work ethic and determination to win at all costs. 

Appearing on the July 15 episode of OpTic CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez’s The Eavesdrop Podcast, Dashy explained why his veteran teammate’s presence is essential to the squad operating like a well-oiled machine. 

“You need an Ian on your team, in my opinion,” he said. “Because all of us kind of joke around and slack and he’s like ‘dude, what the f*ck are we doing?!’ If we didn’t have that, we’d obviously have days that we bullsh*t, and you kind of need him.”

MLGWhile Dashy has been OpTic’s best player this season, he still gives a lot of credit to Crimsix and his veteran presence.

Dashy went on to point out what he feels is the most impressive thing about Crimsix, who has accomplished a lot in the world of CoD esports.

“The one thing that’s really impressive about Ian is, like you said, he’s got so many championships, and he’s so motivated to win,” he said. “How do you keep going? He’s done everything you can do in CoD, and he’s still going. It’s really impressive.”

Crim, of course, has 33 championship victories at CoD tournaments, the most in the esport’s history. His goal is to have the most tournament wins out of anyone in esports overall, a distinction that currently belongs to legendary Halo player Tom ‘OGRE2’ Ryan, who won 41 events during his career.

You can watch the entire Episode 35 of H3CZ’s podcast below, with the discussion about Crim starting at the 1:01:46 mark. 

OpTic face stiff challenge at CWL Finals

OpTic’s next appearance will come at the CWL Pro League Playoffs, which are being held at CWL Finals on July 19-21. 

Having placed first in Division A of the Pro League regular season, the Green Wall are one of the favorites at the tournament, and will face either Team Heretics or one of the two teams that make it out of the Play-In tournament

However, with the likes of eUnited (best record in Division B) and 100 Thieves (two-time champions this season) also in the Playoffs, it will not be an easy task for OpTic to end up crowned champions.

Zlaner hilariously mocks Warzone fan after he & Dr Disrespect get killed

From tears of joy to tears of pain, a Call of Duty: Warzone player was thrilled to outduel Zlaner and Dr Disrespect until he realized that his Verdansk role model reacted by mocking him live on Twitch.

They say to never meet your heroes, but that can be hard to control when dropping into Verdansk’s randomized lobbies. As a perfect example, TikTok Warzone content creator and streamer, ‘maritimemucker,’ happened to encounter one of his longtime role models, Zlaner, on the roof of Superstore.

Mr. Mucker was running an SKS on the hot drop’s rooftop when a jump-shotting opponent rounded the corner, PP19 Bizon in hand. Mucker was able to turn, hit some jump shots himself, and outduel the foe. Excitedly, he quickly recognized that he had downed an upsurging Warzone star in Zlaner.

Afterward, maritimemucker was eager to check out his role model’s stream. But that ended up in heartbreaking fashion, as it turns out the popular streamer had mocked him right as he and the Doc were mowed down.

@maritimemuckerI don’t mean any disrespect Zlaner but you mocked my voice a lil ya know. Big fan and Kilo main now 💯 ##warzone ##Hotmics ##Zlaner ##drdisrespect ##COD♬ original sound – Maritime Mucker

As mucker shared on TIkTok and Reddit, he was shocked and grinning after killing Zlaner: “I got Zlaner, holy s**t … That is unreal … Huge fan of Z, I’ve been watching his s**t after he finally dropped that stupid Fortnite. Unreal.” 

But when he tuned into Z’s stream, he found out that the Warzone star wasn’t impressed with the 1v1 and had, instead, simply mocked Mucker’s death comms. 

Z’s duo, Dr Disrespect, was able to gun down the low-health maritimemucker, but was also quickly killed by the TikToker’s teammate. That gave Zlaner a chance to hear the death comms (as he dealt enough damage to be rewarded with the kill) and the tilted motivation to go high-pitched in mocking the smaller streamer’s excitement.

If you’re going to run into streamers in Warzone, it’ll probably be at Superstore.

In response, maritimemucker had to recognize that courtliness had been replaced by classic gamer banter: “Alright, I see how it is, Z.” 

So, of course, he proceeded not to insult Zlaner by words, but instead by alluding that the spectacled streamer looks like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

The TikToker roasted Zlaner back by comparing him to Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

Ultimately, though, it’s all in good fun and maritimemucker still respects Z tremendously.

When a Reddit commenter suggested that streamers shouldn’t be looked up to, the mocked duelist replied that some Warzone stars deserve the hype: “There are some genuine great streamers out there, Z is one of them.”
