OpTic Gaming star Seth ‘Scump’ Abner might be a World Champion, but that doesn’t stop him from losing games because of simple game mechanics.
Even with all his success, though, Scump still managed to lose a crucial SnD round by falling victim to the much-maligned auto-mantle system.
Playing in a 2v2 SnD tournament with teammate Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, Scump picks up the final kill and then heads towards the bomb for what should be an easy defuse.
Unfortunately for Scump, however, his character auto-mantled over the boxes on the bombsite, costing him precious time and leading to a tough loss.
“Oh my God,” Scump mutters after realizing his game-deciding blunder. “You said don’t slide to the bomb, so I jumped to it and mantled bro!”
The fact that this cost the pair a round was rough enough on its own, but that it came when they were already down 5-2, causing them to lose the match, makes it even worse.
It was a rough night all around for Scump and Crimsix, as Crimsix suffered a frustrating death of his own at the hands of some poorly-timed lag later in the night.
As frustrated as they might have been during these games, they should be much happier now that Treyarch dropped the latest patch to the game.
