FormaL responds to Crimsix leaking his OpTic roster reunion with Scump

Call of Duty pro Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper has responded to former teammate Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, after he appeared to ‘leak’ a new roster featuring former a reunion with OpTic duo Scump,

On September 9, Crimsix announced he was a restricted free agent going into the 2020 season, shortly after teammate Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow had done so, surprising many fans. 


More surprising still, Crimsix denied that the decision was made by OpTic’s new ownership group, Immortals, sparking speculation that his now-former teammates had dropped him.

On September 11, a video surfaced from a Twitch stream, in which Crimsix can be heard telling his seemingly random teammates about the roster moves behind the scenes at OpTic.


While playing CS:GO, Crimsix wrote in the game chat “TJ/Brandon/FormaL said they’ll team if I’m not on it,” prompting the other players in the lobby for an explanation.

Crimsix posted the roster info in game chat, taking his CS:GO teammates by surprise.

Crimsix then apparently “leaked” that the team would consist of Scump, Dashy, TJHaLy, and FormaL. When asked about Karma, Crimsix responds “Seth didn’t want to play with him […] TJ, Brandon and FormaL didn’t [want to play with me].” 

In the next round, he clarified that JKap was being considered as the 5th player on the team.


After watching the clip on stream, FormaL responded, “You’re telling me Crim is going into random CS games, giving intel to random CS kids? That’s what he’s doing right now?” 

The former OpTic star then claimed that the ‘intel’ was “fake news”, but that “Crim should know better than that. Not even know better than that. Crim should be better than that.”

“You’re trying to spill intel to random people? You’re trying to tell people things?” FormaL concluded, arguing that it made Crimsix look “salty”.


It’s unclear whether or not the ‘leaked’ roster Crimsix claimed has formed is accurate or not, although Scump has already publicly indicated a desire to team with FormaL again.

For his part, FormaL insisted the leak was fake, although he may simply be trying to keep things under wraps. We’ll find out for sure when roster announcements are made ahead of the 2020 franchise league season. 


The league is set to begin in January 2020, and so there are still months before rosters will need to be finalized. Only nine franchise locations have been officially confirmed so far, with more expected.

Warzone pro Aydan reveals his biggest problems with Black Ops Cold War

Now that the Black Ops Cold War Beta is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, more and more people are starting to give their opinion on the game so far. Warzone player and streamer Aydan has also chimed in his opinions on it, and needless to say, it’s not all positive.

With the second weekend of the Black Ops Cold War Beta starting on October 15, 2020, almost everyone who wants to play the game has the ability to do so. While it’s technically not open to all Xbox and PC players quite yet, tons of people have jumped in, played a number of different matches and provided feedback – which makes sense, given it’s a pre-release version.


Even since the first weekend, more competitive players like Shroud, Aches, Scump, Drift0r, and others have talked about what they like and dislike about the game and so far, it seems like a fairly mixed bag. Now, another player has joined the fray.

Warzone Twitch streamer and YouTuber Aydan took to Twitter to offer feedback about the Black Ops Cold War Beta, and there are a couple of things he would like to see addressed.


According to him, while the movement in the game is fun overall, he wishes there were a different system in place other than sliding due to the fact that last year’s entry, the highly-debated Modern Warfare (2019), had the same feature.

In addition, he also complained about dropshotting being ineffective in the game, claiming that laying down and standing up is way too slow.

“I don’t necessarily want dropshotting to be effective in all gunfights, but laying down in general is way to slow,” Aydan said in a reply to another user.


It’s not all bad for Aydan, however; In a reply to his original tweet, he said that the gun balancing, wildcard system, and killstreaks in the beta are all fun, but that overall he would give it a 6/10 if he had to rate it now and 7 or 8/10 once the full thing releases.

Treyarch is constantly fine-tuning the game, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the developer makes similar changes before the final version. That being said, it remains to be seen just how much it changes.
