The rivalry between OpTic Gaming and eUnited continued during the CWL 2K tournament on Monday, November 5, as OpTic Gaming turned down a suggestion to replay a Hardpoint map after Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson lagged out of the game.

The OpTic squad have been involved in a dispute with the eUnited org since Halloween, when the latter changed their Twitter profile picture colors to those of the OpTic, joking that they were dressing up as “a Top 24 Champs team” for the occasion.

During the second day of the tournament on November 5, the teams were neck and neck heading into the final few hills of a Hardpoint, when eUnited’s Arcitys complained about lag affecting him, appearing to stand idle in his spawn.

With OpTic Gaming winning the Hardpoint thanks to a 5v4 numerical advantage, eUnited suggested replaying the map to declare a fair winner when both teams had their full squad available.

Unfortunately for eUnited, OpTic had no intention of replaying the map, citing their rival organization’s social media antics as the main reason as to why they wouldn’t restart the Hardpoint. 

“Does anyone remember Halloween?” asked Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter. “I’m making the second map bro. Sorry Arcitys, Prestini, aBeZy, Clay and JKap, your org got you that [loss].”

Seth ‘Scump’ Abner agreed, saying: “These guys are fucking losers. Their whole organization is.”

OpTic Gaming’s coach Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow was later asked about the incident on stream, and attempted to clear the air somewhat.

Asked whether there was any ‘bad blood’ between the teams, TeePee said “it’s a 2K, who gives a fuck. If people are going to get hung up on that shit, in a 2K – like, come on man.”

CWL caster and host Clint ‘Maven’ Evans agreed, saying “we were all in discord together like ‘who cares, play or don’t play, just do something.”

On the other hand, eUnited’s coach Brian ‘Saintt’ Baroska still held on to the map not being a fair loss for eU, saying they had lost semis ‘1-2’, rather than the 0-3 scoreline.

OpTic Gaming went on to win the series 3-0, knocking eUnited out of the tournament and securing their place in the final.

Facing off against Michael “SpaceLy” Schmale’s Team Orgless, OpTic were in incredible form, beating them 3-0 to win the CWL 2K without dropping a single map along the way.

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.
