Winning back-to-back CWL 2K tournaments doesn’t mean that you’re immune from the occasional slip-up, as OpTic Gaming’s Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell has discovered.

Dashy has probably been feeling pretty good about himself lately in the wake of his team’s hot start to the Black Ops 4 season, winning the first two CWL 2K events.

Even with such success, though, Dashy is still prone to making some hilarious mistakes in the middle of a scrim with the rest of his team.

Playing Hardpoint on Arsenal, Dashy is looking for a way to flank the opposing team when he tosses a Cluster Grenade into a window before jumping in right after it with predictable results.

“Ohhh… No one saw that. No one saw that,” Dashy tells his chat as he waits to respawn after killing himself.

It didn’t stop there, however, as immediately after respawning, Dashy once again found himself dead after accidentally auto-mantling into an out-of-bounds area of the map.

The frustrated Dashy simply yells out a quick “Bro!” before rolling his eyes and getting back into the swing of things.

He seemed to take it all in stride, laughing off the blunder as his viewers spammed the chat with various emotes to show they were enjoying it too.

OpTic GamingOpTic Gaming is coming into the Black Ops 4 season with a completely revamped roster.

Fans have taken notice of the seemingly more laid back demeanor of the entire team, with one fan even detailing why they think this year’s OpTic team will do better than last year.

With the first offline event taking place in Las Vegas in just under a month, fans of the Greenwall won’t have long to wait long to see just what this team has in store for this season.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
