Award winning videographer Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards wants to see OpTic Gaming expand their content creation team by signing popular Call of Duty streamer Patryk ‘Rallied’ Salata. 

Hitch took to social media on December 4 to express his desire for OpTic to recruit Rallied, tweeting out: “OpTic Rallied. The people want it,” while also tagging the org in his tweet. 

Speaking about it on his live-stream, Hitch explained why he would like to see Rallied added to OpTic’s content creation team, specifically citing his positive work ethic and personality.

“I think he would be a good fit for OpTic Gaming because he’s a Call of Duty player which is our base viewership,” he said. “He’s a very, very good, very positive vibed person. I think he’d be good on camera, he’d be good on streams.”

Hitch also went on to mention that he thinks the org’s content side of things has take a downward turn, and bringing on someone like Rallied can steer the ship in the right direction.

“We need people for our content because our content is definitely running very low with all the esports teams that have been let go and all of the content creators that have left.”

Rallied has certainly been around the Call of Duty community for a very long time, and is known to be a ‘Snd star,’ the name given to those who focus on playing and streaming online Search and Destroy tournaments and wagers.

A partnered streamer on Twitch, Rallied boasts over 80,000 followers on the streaming platform, with an additional 43,000+ on Twitter, making him one of the biggest and well-known full-time CoD streamers around. 

Rallied briefly attempted to reach the pro level during the past WWII season, but ultimately decided that being a streamer was his calling.

He briefly attempted to expand on his expertise and reach the pro level during the past WWII season, making appearances at the CWL major tournaments in Dallas, New Orleans, and Seattle.

Things did not work out however, as he failed to place any higher than 29-32, and ultimately decided that his calling was to remain a content creator and play SnD high roller wagers and tournaments.

Joining OpTic would certainly be a mutually beneficial partnership. OpTic could provide the clout and resources to turn Rallied into more of a star and expand his brand to beyond just streaming, as they’ve done with numerous others in the past. 

On the flip side, Rallied is already adored by many competitive CoD fans and offers the potential for consistent and full-time CoD content creation that the org so desperately needs. 

There is also the potential for more collaborative projects if Rallied were to be brought on board, especially with the likes of Hitch, as the two have maintained a long standing friendship over the years.

Hitch is currently one of the leading figures in OpTic’s content creation team for Call of Duty, and he live-streams Black Ops 4 daily on his Twitch channel.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
