OpTic Gaming has announced a Texas-based ‘creative space’ which will be a hub for a collection of future content from the organization.

Following its founding in 2006 as a Call of Duty ‘sniper clan,’ OpTic Gaming has expanded over more than a decade to become one of the most well-recognized organizations throughout the entire gaming scene.

The ‘Green Wall’ fields teams in esports titles such as Call of Duty, Gears of War, Fortnite: Battle Royale, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and many more high-profile games, however, the focus on content creation has always been a major aspect of OpTic since the beginning.

While the organization had multiple different ‘team houses’ where members could live in a central space to create content with one another, the move to Dallas, Texas saw the team move away from the ‘house’ concept in favor of apartment-style living.

However, in Vision – Season 5: Episode 2- “Old Vibes,” OpTic Gaming CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez introduced a brand-new creative space in Dallas that will be a ‘hub’ for content creation for everything from ‘Trivia’ to a ‘permanent podcast room.’

H3CZ would later mention how excited he is for such a space, and that it will hopefully bring back the ‘old vibes’ of team houses in the past.

“Super excited to finally have a creative space that we have needed for as long as we did. Something that sort-of resembles a home – a SCUF house, a 6050 Russell Drive vibe…I just cannot tell you how excited I am that we finally have some space to literally yell as loud as we can and be fine with it.

The full episode of ‘Vision’ can be viewed below, with the ‘content’ portion beginning at the 8:43 mark.

Popular content creator Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker hilariously trolled fellow Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s new look – comparing it to one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s styles in the new Borat sequel.

Big-name Twitch streamers are always sparking fun feuds between each other for fans to get invested in, as has been seen with the likes of Dr Disrespect, shroud, and more in the past.

Since shroud made his return to Twitch, it has not taken long for some of his fellow streamers to troll him after he debuted a new goatee on stream, instead of his regular clean-shaven look.

HasanAbi was the latest to poke fun at shroud’s choice of facial hair during his October 23 broadcast, comparing it to the new Borat movie.

Borat switches up his usual style for some scenes in the second movie.

Hasan, who’s risen to popularity on Twitch as both a gamer and political commentator was hosting a Twitch watch party for ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ on Amazon Prime. When a particular scene came up, he was quick to point out similarities between shroud and the main character.

While Borat is usually seen with a long mustache, there is a scene in the movie that sees him rocking a goatee and a pair of glasses, causing Hasan to pull up an image of shroud alongside.

“I have to show- oh my god guys, look at this,” he said, before trolling with a side-by-side image of Borat next to shroud.

Hasan could not help bursting into laughter – the match between the former CSGO pro and Cohen’s latest character is uncanny.

Dr Disrespect previously laid into shroud for his new facial hair, and the jokes are not letting up.

Shroud hasn’t clapped back yet, instead just letting his fellow streamers have their fun – while he rides high on his successful move back to Twitch, following the collapse of Mixer.
