After some major Call of Duty League roster moves were announced on September 15, Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has provided his thoughts on losing Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson to rival team Atlanta FaZe for the Cold War season.

Arcitys has been one of the standout players in recent Call of Duty seasons, and that continued in the Call of Duty League’s inaugural year.

For that reason, some people were surprised that Chicago Huntsmen were willing to let him go, despite having someone incredibly talented in Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell filling the vacant spot.

Arcitys has been one of the best player in the game for the past few seasons.

While fans are upset about losing Arcitys to a rival championship contender, Scump seems to be too, but doesn’t actually seem to believe it’s the wrong decision.

After a viewer of his stream asked how he feels about letting go of Arcitys, he was very honest, making it clear there’s no bad blood between him and the team.

The veteran CoD pro said: “You know what? If you love something, sometimes you’ve just got to let it go.”

That wasn’t all, though, as he went on to explain exactly why Arcitys wanted to leave. “We didn’t want to force him to stay on our roster,” Scump said. “He wanted to go and be a main AR. It happens. Everyone’s happy at the end of the day. Would’ve loved to have him, though. I love that guy.”

There was clearly a good rapport between Arcitys and his Huntsmen teammates, and it was clear there was no ill will when rumors started to circulate that they would be separating, especially now we know that the decision makes perfect sense for both sides.

In Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, Chicago Huntsmen already have one of the world’s greatest main AR players, and Arcitys reuniting with his World Championship-winning squad on FaZe almost seems like a no-brainer, especially since he can play the role he wants.

Obviously, there’s no telling which team will come out better for this, but it definitely seems to have worked out for everyone.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.

How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups went live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.

As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.

Black Ops 2 Invitational teams & bracket

Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.

Standing out among the eight rosters is a true throwback. The 2014 world championship team of Crimsix, Karma, TeePee, and ACHES, will be reuniting. Formerly representing Complexity and then Evil Geniuses, these four players haven’t been on the same team since 2014.

The full list of teams competing in the Black Ops 2 Invitational can be found below.

  • Team Dr Disrespect: Dr Disrespect, ZLaner, StoneMountain64, & KingRichard
  • Team CouRageJD: CouRageJD, Parad12e, LEQIQN, & MLGImpulse

The biggest thing to note about this tournament’s format is that it’s being played on mouse and keyboard, unlike true competitive Call of Duty, which has always been played using controllers.
