The CWL roster locked was lifted on April 5 and teams only have until April 22 to make their roster moves. With this Rostermania period coming so quickly after the conclusion of the cross-divisional play portion of the Pro League, a number of rumors have been swirling about a wide range of changes.
However, their performances have taken a hit in recent weeks, with questions being raised about the team’s drop off in form since winning CWL Vegas.
On April 8, CoDBurner posted that they heard “something about OpTic making a change” in roles or even possibly moving on from coach Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow. Questions quickly shifted in Dashy’s direction as he began streaming games between pro players.
“I don’t know what you guys are saying about CoDBurner,” started Dashy, addressing his Twitch viewers after receiving an inquisitive donation. “Like, this shit is all bullshit bro. It’s the first time I’m hearing this CoDBurner shit about our team - it’s literally all bullshit.”
While the OpTic Gaming squad may have suffered a wobble since their dominant win at Vegas, Dashy’s brutal shutdown of the CoDBurner seems to indicate that they won’t be making drastic changes any time soon.
The Greenwall will have to put in the hard yards to get back to the top, but with just under a month until the next event - CWL London - getting to grips with new tactics, and possibly new roles, might just be their best bet for success instead of making a full-blown changes like other teams.
However, they don’t face the easiest of groups in London. After finishing second in the first season of Pro League play, with a 7-3 record, OpTic have been drawn in a stacked Pool A against 100 Thieves, Team Reciprocity and Enigma6.
