FormaL casually proves to Scump why he’s the “better T2P member”

After his Chicago Huntsmen teammate Seth ‘Scump’ Abner posed the question, T2P member Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper promptly and casually made his case for why he’s the “better” member of the famed Call of Duty duo.

Some of the best duos in history are built on one-upmanship, such as the unstoppable Lakers two-man show in Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. Like Shaq and Kobe, the legendary Call of Duty duo T2P has won many championships together, and required a bit of patching after a falling out.

But, unlike the three-time NBA champions, the duo of Scump and FormaL are still playing together today, reunited under the Chicago Huntsmen banner and led by their former boss in Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez.

As the two approach their next campaign together, with the opening weekend of Call of Duty League less than two weeks away, their competitive sparks haven’t faded at all, and even during streams they’re still trying to outclass each other.

During a January 14 stream, Scump posed the question to his teammate: who would you say is the better T2P member? “It’s obvious,” FormaL replied, “it’s me.”

As Seth remarked on his own impressive shots, Matthew kept calm while making his own case for being the best, dropping five opponents with the HDR sniper rifle in less than thirty seconds.

Impressively, four of his kills came from four consecutive shots in a row, and included a helicopter passenger as well as the pilot who was attempting to flee. His final kill came from a player trying to hide next to a crane.

“You might think you’re nasty,” his teammate Scump said, unaware that FormaL was in the midst of dropping four players with four straight shots, “but you’re not.”

“Uh huh,” Piper replied, focusing more on getting kills than engaging in trash talk, “whatever you say, brotha.”

Eventually, the teammates would lead their squads to a victory in the Ground War match they were in, and they hope to rack up a lot more wins together when CDL begins.

The two won several events together under OpTic from 2015 to 2017, before a clashing of egos and a sudden downturn in quality of play resulted in FormaL’s departure and the collapse of the OpTic CoD empire, according to Scump.

Years later, the two would reconcile their differences and reunite, with fresh championships aspirations now driving the duo forward once again.


Warzone star Rated joins Tommey on 100 Thieves’ roster

Building on the world’s first Call of Duty: Warzone esports team, 100 Thieves have added former London Royal Raven, Rhys ‘Rated’ Price, as the second member of their battle royale roster.

While Rated wasn’t a focal point of the Royal Ravens in the Call of Duty League, he has emerged as one of the best Warzone players on Verdansk. With his stream popping off and tournament money rolling in, it should be no surprise that he was among 100T’s top candidates for their growing roster.

When Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag announced that 100T would be fielding a battle royale team alongside their Los Angeles Thieves CDL squad, it was historic and fans were anxious to hear who would get signed.

Now, Rated joins fellow native of the United Kingdom and former CDL pro, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, as the team’s highly respected core.

Based in Los Angeles, some may be surprised that 100 Thieves have gone across the pond for their Warzone cornerstones. But, looking at Tommey and Rated’s successes in Verdansk, the signing becomes exponentially justified.

While Tommey sits at No. 5 on the Warzone earnings list, Rated is nearby at No. 7 with a hefty $70K in winnings. Those numbers become even more impressive when one factors in that Rated’s first major tournament invitation was in late June, while some of the other top earners began competing months earlier.

Characterized best as a steady player, Rated picks his angles and fights deliberately, shoots as straight as anyone, and has rightfully become known as one of Verdansk’s most intimidating forces. It’s a testament to his skill that competitors regularly express some degree of annoyance when finding out that they’re stuck in a lobby with the wicked Welshman.

Having teamed with Tommey many times already, the addition is a sensible one. Most recently, the duo took second place during the HusKerrs Howl tournament. While it’s unclear who else will be joining the roster, Tommey and Rated provide an excellent foundation with clear comms and a general reluctance to tilt.

With another Englishman, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, already signed to the Royal Ravens, one has to wonder if Nadeshot will put up the cash for Warzone’s best unsigned star: Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad.
