OpTic’s Scump is still poking fun at eUnited, following the teams’ savage back-and-forth on Twitter around Halloween.

Scump was in the midst of a livestreamed scrimmage on November 10 when he jokingly referenced eUnited’s request to replay a map in last week’s 2K, after eUnited player Arcitys was lagged out in the middle of a game against OpTic.

“Yeah, let’s do the eUnited,” Scump said. “Play until something goes wrong, and then win-win.”

This comment incited a wave of good-humored laughter from his team.

This isn’t the first time Scump has roasted eUnited, either; he and the org got into it on Halloween, after eUnited Tweeted a picture of their ‘costume’ (which was just their logo, painted in OpTic’s colors).

Scump responded to their ‘costume’ with a Tweet comparing their LAN wins to an invisible ghost, then followed up by calling the team’s post a ‘lame, cheap shot.’

“I’d be embarrassed to rep that child shit,” he said in response to eUnited’s Clayster, who had given his own, sarcastic take on the interaction.

OpTic and eUnited were part of a more recent feud on November 9, where the vice-president of OpTic’s parent company, Jacob ‘Maelk’ Toft-Andersen, threw major shade at eUnited’s popularity.

“He’s so used to eUnited being just as popular in every other title as they are in CoD,” Maelk said of eUnited’s Clayster.

While Scump’s comment during his stream was likely a mere lighthearted jab, it looks like the rivalry between the two organizations is far from over.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta was live across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
