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.

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.

Cheaters already ruining Black Ops Cold War with SiLLY | CharlieIntel Podcast #6

People have been calling out for Activision to create their own anti-cheat system — in the same vein of Valorant’s Vanguard — in order to deal with the hackers that have plagued both multiplayer and Warzone ever since its release.

Mike and Keshav speak to SiLLY in Episode #6 of the CharlieIntel Podcast. During this week’s episode, we look at what needs to be changed following the Black Ops Cold War Beta. They also touch on whether the game needs a bespoke anti-cheat to ensure the game isn’t ruined by hackers, as well as what the transition to PC means for the CDL.

One of the big topics covered in the group discussion is the differences between the first and second week of how the beta felt in-game and if sliding is where it needs to be at the moment. Keshav also states that he feels they ‘overcompensated’ when nerfing sliding which left it feeling off, and he is hoping they dial it back a bit.
