OpTic Gaming pro Call of Duty player Seth ‘Scump’ Abner provided a brutally honest answer when reflecting on his performance at the recent CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

Speaking on Episode 10 of Season 5 of ‘Vision,’ Scump did not hold back when describing his poor performance at the $500K event.

After finishing the regular season of the Pro League as leaders of Division B, OpTic faced a shocking early exit, losing both of their matches to FaZe Clan and UNILAD Esports respectively.

Many blamed the team’s struggles on Scump, who put in one of the worst performances of his career, and the 2017 CWL champion could not help but totally agree.

“Playoffs was not good bro. I went into Playoffs, I thought I was the top sub. Like literally I thought I was a top-two sub, off the performances of the regular season and just playing the game, I felt really really good, and then… wow. I kept saying I didn’t know what happened, I really don’t know what happened. […] I went out back and I was just apologizing, because that’s like, I don’t think I’ve ever really costed a tournament before, and that was like the first tournament I’ve ever like hard costed. […] Warm-ups I was playing really good and got to the stage and played like an absolute ‘burg.’ […]”

Scump was also not very complimentary of the performance of his longtime teammate Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, who he described as not having a good event either.

“Ian did not have his best event either so, having us two not performing where we’re supposed to and having Sam and ‘Zinn’ trying to carry us, it’s not a formula for success.”

However, despite their immense struggles at the Stage 2 Playoffs, Scump is confident heading into the 2018 CWL Champs, the last and biggest tournament of the season.

With a $1.5 million prize pool up for grabs, the 2017 World Champion feels confident in his and his team’s chances to take on stacked field of opponents.

“I don’t know why people count us out a lot, we don’t really lose a lot of Hardpoints, and if we can string together some 2, 3, 5s, we can beat everyone in the game, and everyone knows that. I think every team knows that, and they don’t want us to get better. […] I hope that we can come out and beat some of these teams in Champs, because people have been shit talking us all year, I think we’ve been right there, and then things haven’t went our way in clutch situations. I think we can turn some heads, and I think that potentially we can do something, we just got to stay focused and play our best, play our hearts out, and hopefully we can win.”
