OpTic Texas announces full CDL roster returns for Modern Warfare 2
After it seemingly looked like Dashy and iLLeY had one foot out the door, OpTic Texas announced its entire roster is returning for Modern Warfare 2.
OpTic Texas initially thanked Brandon “Dashy” Otell and “wished him the best in everything.” Indervir “iLLeY” Dhaliwal tweeted he was a free agent signaling a possible roster shakeup.

Rumors began swirling about who OpTic would add in iLLeY and Dashy’s absence.
OpTic quelled all doubts, announcing every starter from Vanguard is returning for the Modern Warfare 2 season.
