OpTic Gaming have always been regarded as a championship caliber team in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 since their win at the first event of the season, CWL Las Vegas.
The fan favorite squad found themselves finishing in 3rd place at CWL Anaheim after falling to GenG in the Loser’s Bracket Finals, and three time World Champion, Karma, later sparked rumors of a potential role swap after claiming that the team might have performed better if teammate Scump was to run an assault rifle.
One of the young players, added to the roster for the BO4 season, TJHaly, recently addressed the role swap rumors involving Scump after being asked by one of his viewers, saying, “Is Seth playing Maddox now? Nah he’s probably not, I don’t know what we’re doing.”
He followed by explaining that they would be likely to keep their current roles and that he feels working on Hardpoint set-ups is their biggest weakness, adding, “We’re probably going to keep the same shit, we just don't know how to hold a spawn because everyone wants to run at the hill.”
Scump has been playing the SMG slayer role for almost the entire season (and career), the only exception being the first two weeks of the CWL Pro League, during which he ran the Maddox at times to accommodate FaZe Clan's Tommy 'ZooMaa' Paparatto subbing in for Brandon 'Dashy' Otell.
OpTic Gaming still remain to be the only team inside the CWL Pro League not to have made a proper roster change from the start of the year following the recent departure of Sukry from Heretics, as they have been looking inwards to fix the team's issues.
If they are to make a role swap, however, OpTic will have just under a month to prepare for the CWL Finals in Miami, which is scheduled to take place a few weeks after the Pro League finishes up on July 19.
