OpTic Gaming members Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter and Marcus ‘MBoZe’ Blanks have responded to new claims made by the infamous CoDBurner that the organization’s Call of Duty team will sell its players “one by one.”
Rumors continue to swirl over the future of OpTic Gaming, and CoDBurner added fuel to the fire on May 27 when they reported that OpTic Gaming would be dismantled entirely, with players being sold off to other teams following CWL Anaheim.
Unsurprisingly, this stunned Call of Duty fans, but Crimsix and MBoZe's reactions to the rumors may provide OpTic fans with some hope that these are not credible.
In a comment posted on /r/CoDCompetitive, Crimsix shot down reports that they were going to be forced off OpTic following Anaheim, sarcastically writing “Spot on!!!” in response to the CoDBurner’s claims.
Fans of the player then noticed that he had changed his Twitter bio to read that he played for “Hector’s OpTic Gaming,” clearly showing his support for the OpTic Gaming CEO as he attempts to secure control of the legendary organization.
While Crimsix may have been subtle in his shut down of the CoDBurner, long-time OpTic member MBoZe pulled no punches, tweeting that everything the mysterious leaker had posted was wrong.
“Alright, [let me] be the [one] to say it, literally everything in this is untrue,” wrote the former professional CoD player in a series of tweets. “I don’t go on Reddit so I can’t confirm or deny anything else. I’m sure some shit he’s right on, but not this.”
The future of OpTic Gaming’s Call of Duty team remains up in the air, but it’s not the first time their future has been in doubt, as H3CZ shared the story of a previous occasion when Infinite attempted to drop the team.
As it stands, H3CZ and Immortals are still battling for the right to own the organization, with fans hopeful that a deal to secure the future of OpTic Gaming is reached soon.
