Week One of the Call of Duty World League is now in the books, but OpTic Gaming are still unsure who will be lining up for them when the second week of the competition starts.
It was revealed on Monday, February 4 that Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell had been unable to make it to Columbus, Ohio for the start of the competition, with the Canadian believed to be struggling with travel issues.
Taking his place was substitute Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto, with OpTic Gaming winning three consecutive matches after a shaky start to the week, finishing with a 3-1 record that puts them third in their CWL Pro League division.
While many OpTic fans hope that Dashy will return to the starting lineup for their match against Red Reserve on Tuesday, February 12, it seems that there is still a chance he may not be there, according to Paparatto.
Following their final match against Reciprocity, ZooMaa thanked the OpTic Gaming fans for their support throughout the week, and stated that he was still unsure whether he would be required for Week Two.
“Ended the week at 3-1,” wrote Paparatto on Twitter. “Not sure if I’m playing next week, but it’s been super fun. The Green Wall has been super supportive and so has the team, can’t thank you all enough.”
GGs Rec we won 3-1. Ended the week 3-1. Not sure if I’m playing next week, but it’s been fun. The #Greenwall has been super supportive and so has the team, can’t thank y’all enough. Glad I could help, much love. 💚❤️— FaZe ZooMaa (@ZooMaa) February 7, 2019
