The era ends even earlier than expected.
In an emotional goodbye message surrounded by friends, family, and teammates, Call of Duty legend Seth “Scump” Abner has retired from competitive play in the middle of what was supposed to be his final season.
The legendary face of OpTic announced prior to the season’s start that this would be his final season. But after one event and in the middle of online qualifiers for the second Major of the year, he has officially retired from playing competitively.
In the goodbye video, Scump confirmed that Brandon “Dashy” Otell will be back in OpTic’s starting lineup in his place.
“With the addition of Brandon back, I hope people are happy with the new roster,” Scump said as part of his farewell speech. “I think you guys are going to be disgusting. Bringing Brandon back made sense; life’s too short to hold grudges or be mad at each other. I hope he uses this opportunity to be a good teammate. I’m falling down so [Dashy] can go up.”
