OpTic Gaming’s Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has looked back at the “indescribable” moment when he finally won his first Call of Duty World Championship, and revealed the differences in his team’s responses.

The OpTic Gaming star appeared in the first episode of a new MLG series called “Dinner with Champs” that focuses on previous winners of the most coveted event in Call of Duty.


After years of being regarded as one of the very best players to ever touch the game, Scump finally took home the title in 2017 alongside Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper.

When asked what it felt like to finally win his first ring, Scump reminisces about jumping around and screaming will Karma… didn’t:


“it’s indescribable. I think everyone else here can speak on it,

“I think all I remember was I just chucked my headset, was screaming and then Damon and Ian were just sitting there,

“Me and Matt were like super hype because it was our first one together, obviously we both just won our first one, and then the other two were sort of just laughing,

“I think Damon was shooting and tea-bagging bodies and I was screaming!”

Crimsix had already won champs in 2014 and Karma took home the title in both 2013 and 2014. To hear Scump talk about it, it seems like the 2017 World Championship was just another day in the office for them.

“Dinner with Champs” sees MLG’s Joe ‘MerK’ DeLuca sit down with Scump, Rise Nation’s Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat, eUnited’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks and FaZe Clan’s Dillon ‘Attach’ Price.

While the first episode’s focus was on what it felt like to win a world championship, it seems likely that future ones will delve into more recent events and each player’s expectations heading into the $1.5 million 2018 event.

Black Ops Cold War Beta players on consoles can finally change their field of view settings thanks to a welcome addition by Treyarch. Here’s everything you need to know about the new options, including what the best setting is.

Field of view options for consoles is something that fans have been asking for for a long time. Whenever a new CoD game releases, there’s always a section of PlayStation and Xbox players wondering why the option hasn’t been made available for them. It’s equally frustrating considering that the PC version of every iteration has had the options available on day one.


This is all changing with Black Ops Cold War, however, as Treyarch has confirmed that players on consoles will finally be able to adjust their field of view. For people unfamiliar with the options, this might be a bit confusing. Taking advantage of these settings, however, might end up helping your game.

What is field of view?

At its most basic form, field of view is how much of the game you see on your screen. A lower FOV means you’ll see less, while a higher field of view means you’ll see more.


While some people might immediately say that a high field of view is automatically better, it’s important to note that the higher the field of view, the more distorted your screen will look and the smaller objects will look at a distance.

Generally speaking, you’ll want to balance you’re field of view with what your comfortable looking at.

How do I adjust my FOV settings?

In the beta, finding the FOV slider is relatively simple but in case you don’t know, here’s a quick and simple guide to figure it out.

  1. In your Black Ops Cold War Beta application, press the buttons for “Settings”
  2. Tab over to the “Graphics” options
  3. Scroll down until you see “Field of View”
  4. Adjust the slider from left to right to set to your desired setting.
The Field of View can be can be adjusted in the game settings.

What’s the ideal field of view setting?

If you’ve never played with a modified field of view before, it might be best to take things slow. Working your way up will allow you to adjust to the higher FOV so that you’re not thrown into the deep in, so to speak.

In order to have a high FOV, while making sure that you can still see enemies, it’s recommended to keep your adjusted setting at 100. While you can certainly push it all the way up to 120, the former will allow you to experience the changes without it being too difficult to see things at a distance.
