The competitive Call of Duty community was shell-shocked when it was announced that the only three-time world champion had been dropped by OpTic Gaming.
Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow is considered one of the greatest players of all time, having won CoD Champs in 2013, 2014 and 2017.
He was considered the backbone of the OpTic team that featured Scump, Crimsix, and FormaL, but after a disastrous WWII season, he was benched in favor of former Rise Nation player, Methodz.
In our video on the subject, we look at Karma’s history in the competitive Call of Duty scene, from winning his first major tournament through to the reasons he was forced to watch from the sidelines.
Fortunately for fans of the player, we haven’t seen the last of Karma. The Canadian has been vocal about returning to compete when Black Ops 4 drops in October and there is speculation is he could end up creating a team for 100 Thieves owner, Nadeshot.
