It did not take long for Dashy to develop into good enough of a Call of Duty player to land on a prestigious team like OpTic Gaming.
And while he’s still very much in the early stages of his professional career, he’s already gotten the chance to play alongside some of the biggest names of the esport.
Speaking with OpTic CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez about his career, Dashy revealed that his favorite teammates to this point have been none other that Jeremy ‘StuDyy’ Astacio and Rasim ‘Blazt’ Ogresevic
“It’s between Blazt and StuDyy, between the two,” he said. “StuDyy, he was the guy that taught me like ‘you have to do this, this, don’t be an idiot, this and that. Obviously, people are watching you now.’ And Blazt, just because we’re like the same age, so we kind of relate a lot. So probably either of those two.”
Discussion begins at the 5:19 mark.
StuDyy was one of Dashy’s first ever teammates in the pro scene, having teamed with him under the Str8 Rippin banner at CWL Anaheim in 2017, where they placed 17-20, and later 13-16 at the CWL Championship 2017.
He is now retired, serving as one of the desk analysts for the CWL at the Pro League and other major tournaments and events.
Blazt, meanwhile, first teamed with Dashy at CWL New Orleans 2018, during his brief stint with Enigma6 Group, before the two became more permanent teammates with compLexity Gaming, qualifying for the CWL Pro League during the WWII season.
Their careers have since progressed at different rates, as Blazt has jumped around several teams this season until landing at UYU, while Dashy has very much solidified himself as an integral member of OpTic’s squad.
Of course, it must be said that Dashy specifically mentioned that he did not want to name someone from their current OpTic roster as his all-time favorite teammate, for obvious reasons.
So the true answer to H3CZ’s question could very well be someone who’s currently a member of the Green Wall, but that’s not something that would be confirmed anytime soon.
Dashy and OpTic head to Miami for CWL Finals
OpTic Gaming face a stiff test at the upcoming CWL Finals tournament in Miami, Florida, where they will be competing in the $1.25 million Playoffs of the CWL Pro League.
While they did run away with the first seed in Division A during the regular season, their performances towards the end was lackluster to say the least, and they will need to regroup if they are to fight off fellow powerhouse teams eUnited and 100 Thieves, both of whom pose a serious threat.
CWL Finals will be played July 19-21, and will feature the Play-In tournament, Playoffs, and the final amateur open bracket tournament of the year, which will send 16 non-Pro League teams to next month’s Champs.
