OpTic or coL? Clayster and H3CZ debate the greatest Call of Duty dynasty of all time

eUnited’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks has gone back and forth with OpTic’s CEO, Hector Rodriguez on which legendary Call of Duty roster had the most dominant run.

Since the OpTic roster changes back in May of 2018, which saw the departure of Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow (temporarily) from the team, the competitive Call of Duty community has been debating which team has had the most impressive dynasty: compLexity or OpTic Gaming?

This debate resurfaced once again when former compLexity star, Clayster, took to Twitter to share a step by step guide on “how to trigger your followers”. In which, he also included a jab at his current rivals in OpTic, jokingly stating that “optic gaming are geeks”.

Clayster was a key part of compLexity’s dominant Black Ops 2 squad.

The 2015 Call of Duty world champion then moved on to share the final step in his list, claiming he saved the best for last, “the coL dynasty was far better and more dominant than the OG dynasty”.

OpTic Hecz was quick to respond, saying: “biased. and incorrect.” before inviting Clayster to join him on the Eavesdrop podcast where they could discuss the matter further.

The compLexity and OpTic dynasties both won Call of Duty World Championships during their runs. Some would argue that coL’s era of dominance was more convincing, while others would point at the longevity of OpTic as a clear indicator that their dynasty was more impressive.

Clayster later conceded that, although he felt the coL dynasty was more dominant in their time at the top, he thought that OpTic Gaming’s dynasty roster was “more talented” and “more accomplished”.

The pair then settled on a plan to record an episode of the Eavesdrop before CWL Fort Worth takes place in March, as Hector asked Clay to record it “when you come for the camp.” 

It appears the eUnited team will be once again boot camping with OpTic Gaming, as they have done previously before the inaugural event of the season, CWL Las Vegas.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
