Samuel 'Octane' Larew cleared up any rumors that there is a divide between himself and Seth 'Scump' Abner after OpTic Gaming lost to Luminosity at CWL Anaheim.
After the infamous OpTic Gaming roster of Scump, Matthew 'FormaL' Piper, Damon 'Karma' Barlow, and Ian 'Crimsix' Porter broke up following a slow start to the 2018 Call of Duty: WWII season, many questioned how the new roster would fare.
Octane and Anthony 'Methodz' Zinni were added following the change, with the new squad beginning their run with a solid performance at Stage Two of the CWL Pro League by only losing two matches in the first half of the season.
Their first test as a squad at a major Open event was at CWL Anaheim in mid-June, where they got off to a hot start in Pool Play with a perfect 4-0 record.
However, after matching up against Luminosity, Octane's former roster, in the first round in the Championship Bracket, the Green Wall ultimately fell with a 1-3 loss, knocking them down to the Losers Bracket
The loss spawned some arguments between members of OpTic, including Octane having some choice words for scump, which led to fans going after the former LG player for the altercation.
In a video following CWL Anaheim, Octane cleared up any rumors of animosity between himself and Scump, stating that it was just the 'heat of the moment.'
"I just want to clear something up, after we lost to LG, I've been getting a lot of tweets that you guys are like, yelling at me - or not yelling - joking with me about yelling at Seth. It was just a heat of the moment thing, Seth and I are great friends, it's not like an animosity thing at all, I promise guys. It was just a heat of the moment, frustration kind of thing, don't worry about it.
