OpTic Gaming’s Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell got himself into a sticky situation while using Prophet's specialist weapon - the Tempest - during an online tournament game of Control.
Playing against Red Reserve in the CMG Prodown on Sunday, December 2, Dashy and the new-look OpTic squad were attempting to close out a game of Control on Seaside.
While hunting down the remaining Red Reserve players, the former compLexity star popped Prophet's specialist weapon, the Tempest, and headed to the Fountain area, via the ramp at middle map, in a bid to close out the game.
After lining up an electric shot, Dashy hit Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall but received one of his own from Skrapz in return. Both players fell to the floor, knocked by their respective Tempest shots.
The pair got back to their feet after spending a few seconds crawling on the floor, before they traded shots again. This second trade of Tempest shots sent Dashy into a fit of laughter as he got a chain knock onto another Red Reserve player before eventually falling to Skrapz’ Tempest. Trading Tempest shots is not a new thing, but judging by Dashy's reaction, it's also not a common occurance.
Dashy and the OpTic squad closed out the map and series against Red Reserve by a scoreline of 4-2, advancing to the winners bracket finals of the ProDown. There, the Greenwall defeated 100 Thieves 4-1 and progressed to the Grand Finals - which will be played on Monday December 3.
The tournament is part of both teams' final preparations for the opening tournament of the year - CWL Las Vegas - which will kick off on December 6 with the play-in bracket. You can check our event hub for more information here.
