OpTic Gaming’s Karma Has Regrets About How Things Have Unfolded – “I Feel Lost”

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.

Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting another huge Call of Duty tournament and this time, Warzone is in focus as the best players will be coming together in an entirely new format.

From Black Ops 4 to Ghosts and even Modern Warfare 2, Hitch has been hosting an assortment of throwback CoD events throughout the offseason. However, his sights are now set on Warzone as the next competition is on the horizon.


Call of Duty’s best pro players will be joining the top Warzone challengers and some of the biggest streamers in the ‘Cracked Creators’ event. 16 “cracked” players will be thrown into the mix alongside 16 content creators with $10,000 on the line.

The format is something completely new so expect every competitor to be tested like never before. From where you can watch to every player lined up, here’s what you need to know about the Cracked Creators Warzone tournament.


How to watch the Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.


Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament format

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
