OpTic Gaming Call of Duty captain Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has revealed his feelings on the current crop of professional players.
The 2017 Call of Duty World Champion has been on fire since the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 as he attempts to bounce back from the worst year of his career.
Plenty of players, and even organizations, have taken shots at Scump and his teammates following a disastrous WWII season, with tensions seemingly growing around the scene between pros over a number of issues.
The OpTic Gaming captain addressed some of those shots on his Eavesdrop Podcast appearance with Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez and has continued to speak on issues in the scene during team practices and streams.
Scump and OpTic are looking to get back on top after a difficult 2018 season.
Scump, reading out subscriptions and donations on a recent stream after a set of scrims, addressed the question: “Who is the funniest pro?”
His answer is probably not what Twitch user BoosterPro was looking for.
“I don’t even know,” Scump replies. “I don’t really talk to any of the pros anymore. I don’t really fucking like ‘em to be honest. They all sorta piss me off. There’s like a select few that I actually like now.
“The rest just piss me off to be honest with you.”
It’s uncertain which pros Scump is referring to, or how serious his statement is, but the apparent tensions are sure to add even more excitement to the first CWL event of Black Ops 4.
Scump’s new line-up will finally make their LAN debut, after dominating online tournaments, in two weeks time when CWL Las Vegas kicks off on December 7.
Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.
Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.
Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.
From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.
How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational
The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups went live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.
As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.
Black Ops 2 Invitational teams & bracket
Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.
Standing out among the eight rosters is a true throwback. The 2014 world championship team of Crimsix, Karma, TeePee, and ACHES, will be reuniting. Formerly representing Complexity and then Evil Geniuses, these four players haven’t been on the same team since 2014.
