Ex-Call of Duty pro and coach Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow explained why he chose to become a CoD analyst rather than join the Chicago Huntsmen as a coach.
Call of Duty fans will no doubt have heard of TeePee, who most recently acted as the coach for the legendary organization, OpTic Gaming, as well as having an impressive playing career himself, becoming world champion in 2014 and playing for the likes of Evil Geniuses and Team EnVyUs.
The American chose not to join a team heading into the all-new Call of Duty League and had remained on the sidelines until Jan 2020. However, he then accepted a role as an analyst and has finally revealed why he didn’t join the Huntsmen or any other team.
Tyler was joined by Clint ‘Maven’ Evans on Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez's Eavesdrop Podcast where the duo spoke to the OpTic legend about a variety of topics, with TeePee’s choice of career being one of the biggest talking points.
“The reason I’m not coaching right now is that those days were absolutely brutal. I’d start streaming at 9 AM and we’d get done with scrims at 11 PM, those are long days to do for 6 months in a row, barely taking a day off.”
Additionally, TeePee’s stream has been growing and he decided to work on the ‘Breaktime Boys’ - a brand he had created focusing on streaming 9-5, which would give fans at work something to tune in to during their breaks.
Of course, Polchow will still appear as an analyst for CoD events and be a huge part of the community, even if he isn’t on a team.
He may even get the competitive itch once again and decide to make a move in the future, but for now, fans will be able to catch him either behind the desk at events, or on his own stream.
