Seth “Scump” Abner, a Call of Duty legend, has provided an explanation regarding the most significant change in their playstyle with the addition of Cuyler “Huke” Garland to their lineup in exchange for Brandon “Dashy” Otell.
After the conclusion of the 2022 Call of Duty League season, it appeared as though OpTic Texas would be making some adjustments to the players on their squad. However, after a few days of intense controversy during the off-season, they came to the conclusion that Scump, Shotzzy, Dashy, and iLLeY should continue to operate it.
After a less-than-stellar beginning to the 2023 campaign, the team has already made a switch, moving away from Dashy and toward Huke. While the Xeo three of Huke, Shotzzy, and iLLeY have been reunited as a part of the Green Wall, Dashy’s departure has been met with quite a bit of controversy, with the Canadian even criticizing OpTic coach Rambo for his handling of the situation.
The former Los Angeles Guerrillas SMG player Huke made a strong showing during OpTic’s series against Boston Breach, which resulted in the former’s team claiming a 3-2 victory over the latter.
After Dashy’s Departure, Scump Reveals the Most Significant Change
Because of the adjustment, Scump now plays a more committed flex role, which requires him to switch between SMG and AR when the situation warrants it. This makes it possible for Huke and Shotzzy to take over the SMG positions.
“I guess I’m just going to pace myself. It’s kind of common knowledge that I’m a slower substitute than the others. When asked about the most significant change in the group at this time, Scump responded by saying that Cuyler and Ant are both simply crackheads and that they run around.
In light of the fact that he is now filling Dashy’s role, he mentioned that he has “quite huge shoes to fill,” although they are now playing at a faster pace.
Scump also mentioned that they have been experimenting with different Field Upgrades as they strive to figure out how to win more matches, but they already have one victory under their belts. They will make their return to competition on January 20, facing up against Seattle Surge and Toronto Ultra in challenging matches as OpTic Texas looks to position themselves well for the Major 2.
