H3CZ of OpTic Texas has criticized Seattle Surge. Another Call of Duty League team, for their handling of OpTic’s acquisition of Pred, calling it “disappointing” and accusing OpTic of being “tugged along.”
Even though the strife it sparked hasn’t subsided. The chaos surrounding OpTic Texas’ decision to replace Dashy appears to have finally come to an end. Huke was ultimately chosen by the Greenwall to replace Dashy, but only after attempts to recruit Arcitys and Pred failed.
Pred earlier remarked that although “everything” was tried to make the move happen because he wanted to, it finally proved to be impossible. OpTic Texas, on the other hand, has harshly condemned Seattle Surge. That further worsened in The Process episode of January 13 when H3CZ spoke extensively about how “disappointing” he thought their actions to be.
Seattle Surge Criticized by H3CZ for Handling the Pred Saga
He felt that the Surge “tugged along” OpTic Texas. He claimed that OpTic sought Pred because they thought he was an “explosive” player after an attempt to get LA Guerrilla’s Arcitys fell through.
“We were told one pricing when I spoke to the business leadership team at Seattle Surge on a Friday,” he claimed. “We met that price once more by Wednesday because it had gone up. After a third price increase, we met that pricing on Friday. Despite having earlier expressed an interest in a transfer, the Surge supposedly informed OpTic that they would not permit Pred to depart after agreeing to all the exorbitant charges.
What I don’t like is that we were dragged along for a week, H3CZ continued. “I don’t conduct business that way, and I find it surprising that they do… Simply not being told the truth from the start is something I don’t like. If they had said, “Hey, we love Pred; he’s not leaving,” I would have recognized.
OpTic Texas wanted to move Pred because they thought he would have “suited well” into their system, but it finally fell through because Seattle wouldn’t allow him to go.
“He wants to join,” H3CZ said in closing. That is true. At the final minute, after everyone had agreed to everything, the ground was suddenly torn out from beneath us. I wish I could say that I understand, but I just can’t bring myself to do so. We now understand how things function, so it is what it is. On January 13, CDL Major 2 qualifications started. OpTic Texas hopes to improve upon their Major 1 performance, which saw them crash out in positions 9–12.
