North American esports organization OpTic Gaming have recruited Joey Toledo, the creator of the popular ‘OpTic Update’ Twitter page.

The announcement came early on June 4th, sealing a partnership that many would have considered long overdue.

Since the creation of OpTic Update in 2014, Joey has made it his mission to answer to infamous “When does OpTic play?” question.

Despite having not been officially affiliated with OpTic Gaming, the page has essentially become the most popular source of instant scores and schedule updates for all of OpTic’s esports teams, which are currently involved in Call of Duty, CSGO, DOTA2, Gears of War, League of Legends, Overwatch, and PUBG.

OpTic officially welcomed Joey to their organization via a series of posts on their official Twitter page.

According to the provided release, Joey’s role will largely stay the same but will also now involved the new Greenwall.gg OpTic community page.

Joey’s responsibilities are largely a continuation of what he’s done to date – he’ll still be updating the Twitter feed, for one, with extra augmentation coming from OpTic’s other accounts. But on top of that: “with the release of the new site, Greenwall.gg, I’ll be managing some parts of that – making sure that’s up to date with clerical files, information, and articles that are on there.”

As far as what being part of OpTic means to him, Joey describes it as essentially a dream come true.

“I really loved what I’m doing. I loved the OpTic organization as a whole – that personal feeling that you can get with all the players and content creators and pretty much everybody in the organization. That’s just something that connected with me and stayed with me even up to today. As OpTic got into more games and with more teams, I just kept doing what I was doing because I loved it, and because the fans loved it as well.”

Naturally, his excitement spilled over to social media, where Joey tweeted about the big news from both the OpTic Update twitter account and his own.

FIFA 21 Rulebreakers 2 live countdown: start time, leaks, predictions

EA SPORTS is on the verge of officially unveiling the second “Rulebreakers” team as this year’s Halloween promo continues in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the second upgraded team coming this week.

Coming into the Halloween season, FUT fans were expecting Ultimate Scream to make a triumphant return for the fourth year in a row. Instead, EA SPORTS blindsided everyone with an all-new FIFA 21 promo: the “Rulebreakers” event.

The first team was stacked full of swapped stars too. Harry Kane’s monster pace upgrade was the headline, but other boosts ⁠— Dries Mertens, Douglas Costa, and Radja Nainggolan among them ⁠— turned older FUT cards into terrifying FIFA 21 beasts.

The second half of the Halloween promo, Rulebreakers 2, is set to drop later this week  ⁠— here’s everything we know about the second boosted squad so far.

When will “Rulebreakers 2” be released?

Rulebreakers 2 is just over the horizon now ⁠— if the in-game dates EA SPORTS has already loaded into the Ultimate Team backend are correct, the second half of the Halloween promo team should arrive on Friday, October 30.

This new team should stick around for a week. That means any special packs, challenges, and promo deals that hit Ultimate Team will last until November 6.

We’ll likely get a first-look reveal of the new promo event, and a potential upgraded team to go along with it, ahead of that 6pm Friday release time. Keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter, @UltimateTeamUK and @FutWatch, to see the news.

The first Rulebreakers team was fairly stacked — will Rulebreakers 2 be the same this week?

Rulebreakers 2 predictions: new FIFA 21 upgrades

EA SPORTS revealed just what “Rulebreakers” meant with the first team released last week: each upgraded card had small nerfs to some of their face stats, while others were handed a big boost to “defy the status quo” with permanent changes.

There’s already one big name that seems to be a Rulebreakers 2 shoo-in: Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski. The Polish hitman scored a hat-trick on the weekend, but missed out on a spot in Team of the Week 5 despite that huge effort.

That has led FIFA 21 fans to believe EA had to leave Lewandowski out of their mid-week promo so that he didn’t get special cards back-to-back. It certainly makes sense too.

There’s also a few other big names we could see in the promo. Harry Maguire is one. The United defender is a slow Premier League pick now, but a Rulebreakers boost could change that. Here’s our predictions for the promo’s second team.

Possible ‘Rulebreaker 2’ players

  • Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
  • Riyad Mahrez (Manchester City)
  • Vitolo (Atlético Madrid)
  • Kieran Tierney (Arsenal)
  • Hulk (Shanghai SIPG)
  • Kevin Volland (Monaco)
  • Gerard Piqué (Barcelona)
  • David Silva (Real Sociedad)
  • Harry Maguire (Manchester United)
  • Aleksandar Kolarov (Inter Milan)
Hopefully your Guaranteed Bundesliga TOTSSF SBC pack contains Robert Lewandowski.

Robert Lewandowski is all but confirmed to be the headlining star for Rulebreakers 2.

So there you have it ⁠— everything we know about FIFA 21’s Rulebreakers 2 squad. Make sure if you’ve got some Ultimate Team coins saved up you keep them in your back pocket; there is sure to be some cracking Halloween cards on the way!

We’ll update this article when the promo begins. As always, stick with us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK for all the latest FIFA news, updates, and content.
