Matthew ‘FormaL‘ Piper poked fun at a fan after they compared him to OpTic Gaming’s Brandon ‘Dashy‘ Otell — reminding everyone that he is one of the winningest Call of Duty players in history himself.

Amid the ongoing roster shuffles leading up to the first franchised season for Call of Duty, FormaL’s name has become synonymous among those keeping tabs on the impending ‘rostermania’ that will ensue. 

Following an appearance from Seth ‘Scump’ Abner on Episode 8 of the Courage & Nadeshot Show, FormaL has drummed up interest by hinting at the possible reunion of the ‘T2P’ duo that was at the root of OpTic’s dynasty squad. 

MLGA T2P reunion might well dominate Modern Warfare

Of course, Piper is a multi-FPS veteran and Scump is dubbed to be one of the best Call of Duty players to have graced the sticks, so it’s evident why this has caused a stir on social media.

Aside from Scump and FormaL’s long-term dominance of the franchise, Dashy has announced his presence into the Call of Duty scene during Black Ops 4, which has led to him being labeled one of the breakthrough players of last season — causing him to be frequently weighed-up to the two greats of Call of Duty.

Regardless, FormaL immediately defended his position as one of the most decorated players in the game, when replying to a fan comparing him with the OpTic youngster.

FormaL reacted by replying: “Oh, here we go again, the Dashy shit… Listen they used to say FormaL before they said Dashy — alright?”

He was only jesting with the fan, but FormaL proceeded by adding: “I’m a 21 times motherfucker! I need some god-damn respect recently, man.”

With the roster shuffle imminent, it’ll be interesting to see whether the two weigh-up against each other, or whether they will help Scump realize his ‘dream roster’ moving into Modern Warfare

Nonetheless, with Dashy’s crispy aim and shrewd in-game plays, you don’t have to go around the houses to see why some place him akin to FormaL.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
