No competitive Call of Duty season is complete without some of the usual smack talk and name calling that goes on between professional players.
One name that has constantly been at the forefront of the trash talking this season has been that of Donovan ‘Temp’ Laroda, who currently plays for Echo Fox.
Temp, who started the season with Team EnVy, has been involved in several spells of drama this season, including a drawn out and publicized locking of horns with Doug ‘Censor’ Martin and some questionable comments he made about former player Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag.
Most recently, the targets of his critical comments were none other than OpTic Gaming’s Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter.
Temp was appearing as a guest on the Call of Duty podcast show ‘The CoDCast’ when he was asked by host Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler about who he felt was the most fake professional player in the competitive scene.
Temp went a step further and offered the name of both of the OpTic superstars.
“I’m going to have to go with, whoa, actually wait lowkey, I’ll probably say Seth or Crim, right now. Probably one of them two.”
At the end of the day, credit must be given to Temp for not being afraid of speaking his mind, especially since he will most likely receive heavy backlash from OpTic fans, who are known to react quickly when their favorite team and/or players are spoken of in a negative way.
Even NAMELESS pointed that out after Temp made his comments.
“The one team you don’t touch with a question like. You just leave OpTic, you don’t say that. Now you’re getting toasted.”
The clip of Temp’s comments can be seen down below, and the entirety of Episode #7 of The CoDCast can be seen on NAMELESS’ official YouTube channel.
