Since dominating the early portion of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season, OpTic has failed to rediscover that event winning form that helped them to CWL Vegas success. A topsy-turvy year of near misses and disappointing finishes has seen the team switch up roles more than once.
The changes haven’t paid off too well, however, after they failed to win a map at the CWL Finals in Miami. Yet, with Call of Duty Championships on the horizon, and the ever-rabid Greenwall fans eager for major success, the stacked squad has made another switch - and it might just pay off, if Karma’s highlights are anything to go by.
In a YouTube video from August 5, the three-time world champion finally showed off what is possible when he puts down the Maddox, picks up an SMG - and even returns to his Ruin specialist abilities.
Playing alongside former long-time teammate Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, Karma was able to go on a tear on his way to a win - racking up over 4500 total damage, the most in the lobby, as well as picking up a set of full streaks during the Hardpoint contest.
Of course, while he’s been able to dominate in online matches against mix-match teams of other pros, it remains to be seen if the OpTic line-up can replicate their form in the final LAN event of the season.
The Greenwall has been drawn against Evil Geniuses, Carnage Gaming, and TrainHard Esport in a CoD Champs pool that many will expect them to progress from in relatively comfortable fashion.
With the new release of Modern Warfare approaching, and Call of Duty making the switch to a brand-new franchised league, nobody is quite sure what the future holds for players and their current rosters.
If they aren’t set to remain in their current forms, then everyone will want to give their fans a victorious send-off - but, perhaps, none more so than Karma and OpTic.
