Call of Duty franchise just around the corner.
Things behind the scenes at OpTic Gaming have been tumultuous over the past few months to say the least. Since the sale of OpTic parent company Infinite Esports & Entertainment to Immortals Gaming Club, H3CZ announced his departure from the brand to pursue the co-CEO role at NRG Esports. Similarly, Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, announced his exit from the organization.
Having been a part of the Green Wall dynasty since 2014, the winningest player in Call of Duty history, Crimsix, recently revealed how he was “forced out” of the OpTic brand by his former teammates.
In the October 14 edition of the Eavesdrop Podcast, H3CZ showed just how much respect he has for Crimsix as a player, and expressed regret at the fact that the two could not reach a deal and continue to work together moving forward.

Discussing the likelihood of certain professional players being able to ‘make it’ in multiple competitive scenes, NRG’s Gears of War captain Gilbert ‘Xplosive’ Rojo threw Crimsix’s name into the mix during the podcast.
“Crimsix is actually pretty nice at Gears,” the NRG captain said when discussing the idea of competing alongside a Call of Duty pro.
“He’s one of those people that’s just really, really good at everything,” H3CZ responded. “It sucks man. Not having him on the squad is gonna suck. He’s always been one of my favorite players, even before he was in OpTic.”
“I’m a bit salty at that part,” he elaborated. “I like his brain, if that makes any sense. I like the way he thinks of things.”

Confirming suspicions that Crimsix will not be competing under the new Chicago-based franchise, H3CZ appeared momentarily disheartened on the podcast, acknowledging just how impressive a player he is and perhaps disappointed in the way the situation was handled following the sale of OpTic Gaming.
Discussion begins at the 43:08 mark for mobile users.
If recent roster leaks are to be trusted, all signs point towards Crimsix teaming with Call of Duty veteran James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks under the Dallas banner for the inaugural 2020 season. Combined, the players have over a decade of elite-level experience and 55 championship wins.
Meanwhile, no official details have been revealed surrounding the Chicago-based franchise under the control of H3CZ, but you can keep up to date with all of the latest developments using our dedicated roster tracker.
