Twitch star Tyler “Ninja” Blevins teamed up with former pro CoD players Matt “Nadeshot” Haag, Tyler “TeePee” Polchow and current professional Seth “Scump” Abner on the PC Blackout beta – and was all too aware of the latter’s recent tournament wins drought.
Prior to the 2018 CWL Season, Scump had won at least one tournament in every season of competitive Call of Duty, since he began competing, but his run came to and end during CoD: WWII.
Ninja, a former professional Halo player himself, has apparently been keeping up with events in competitive CoD, and hilariously roasted the OpTic Gaming star on his recent dip in tournament form.
After Scump completely missed a Rick & Morty reference (one of Ninja’s favorite shows it seems), he entered Morty’s voice to call Scump “that washed up Ginger”, before switching to a Rick impression:
“Yeh Morty, you know what I’m saying – I can’t remember the last time he won a tournament.”
Ninja was sure to make clear that he was only saying it in jest, but Scump said “it’s all motivation for next year”, as competitive Call of Duty turns its attention to Black Ops 4.
The OpTic Gaming roster for the upcoming season may not be completely announced yet, but we do know for sure that both Scump and long time teammate Ian “Crimsix” Porter will be staying with the organization.
The first event of the year is set to take place on December 7-9, at CWL Vegas, but before that, Ninja himself will have the opportunity to win a Black Ops 4 tournament, as he is one of the captains at the Doritos Bowl tournament.
