Back in May OpTic Gaming announced its official roster moves for the remainder of the CWL second season, and now Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow has regrets about not joining another team.
Karma and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper are both no longer on the OpTic Gaming dynasty that dominated across the last several Call of Duty titles.
The decision to make roster changes came after a series of disappointing placings during the Call of Duty: WWII CWL first season.

While FormaL was traded to Luminosity Gaming for Sam ‘Octane’ Larew, Karma was dropped from the roster and replaced by Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni.
Looking back on the situation, Karma has regrets about choosing not to compete for the rest of the CWL season.
“I feel lost man. I really regret this path I chose, not that I really had much of a choice. I sit here and watch people compete whatever the game be and that's all I want to do. I just feel a set of fresh faces would've changed everything for me.”
He would go on to say that while he did hate this year’s game, he hated past titles as well, and ultimately believes he hated the environment more.

The CoD legend also mentioned plans of teaming with Killa, Mirx, and a 4th, but unfortunately Kills is suspended, so those plans fell through.
Many fans still regard the former OpTic star as a top player and expect him to return to competitive play in October when Black Ops 4 releases.
