Karma shines light on how Scump convinced him to return to OpTic with some interesting song lyrics

OpTic Gaming star Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow has revealed one of the methods teammate Seth ‘Scump’ Abner used to convince him to return to the organization’s roster for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season.


Barlow joined the OpTic Gaming roster in April 2015, and remained on the team for over three years until a disappointing run of results during the World War 2 season saw the Canadian replaced by Anthony 'Methodz' Zinni.

With Karma benched for the entirety of the summer, the three-time World Champion seemed set to leave the Greenwall until an announcement during an episode of OpTic’s documentary series ‘Vision’ confirmed he would be returning to the starting squad for the Black Ops 4 season.


While streaming the CWL 2K on Sunday, November 11, Karma began to sing along to ‘All of Me’ by John Legend, when he changed the lyrics to describe his relationship with Scump, giving fans of OpTic a glimpse into one of the ways Abner attempted to bring him back into the squad.

“All of me, Seth, loves all of you,” sang Barlow. “Even though you begged me at Champs, in the hotel lobby!”


Scump immediately began to laugh, saying: “It wasn’t a beg dude,” to which Karma responded: “You actually were so annoying.”

It seems like Barlow’s return to OpTic Gaming’s Call of Duty lineup has gotten off to a successful start, with the squad winning the first CWL 2K tournament of the season without losing a single map throughout the whole competition.

The squad are hoping to win the tournament for a second consecutive week when they play in the quarter-finals of the second CWL 2K on Monday, November 12.
