After a disappointing 0-2 start to 2022 Call of Duty League season, OpTic Texas is on a winning streak after an impressive 3-0 victory over Toronto Ultra tonight.
After a slow start, OpTic is finally starting to look like the group many thought they were going into Vanguard Season. While Toronto is widely regarded as one of the top teams in the league, none of the three maps of the series are particularly close in terms of score or damage.
OpTic overtook Ultra with 38 lives over the course of a three-game streak, with Dashy, iLLeY and Shotzzy all posting positive K/D in the series. Shotzzy took the lead for Texas, posting a 1.32 K/D series, including a 39-28 outperformance at Bocage Hardpoint in the series’ first map.
Shotzzy said after the game: “Our revival has been really good in practice lately. “We’ve been really focusing on our map team lately and it’s showing up.”
OpTic’s hardpoint is maturing, but so is the team’s Search and Destroy. After losing the first two series of the season in game five, round 11 scenarios, they now have their last two SnDs wins by a round total of 12-5 against Paris and Toronto. OpTic has historically always been an elite revival team, so if they can keep improving in SnD, they could find themselves with a lot going for it at every event.
Shotzzy looks like he’s getting back to his 2020 form, which is a scary thought for the rest of the league, as he won the tournament’s MVP and helped lead the Dallas Empire to the world championship. gender. Unfortunately for him, his dominant performance against Toronto could be overshadowed by his inadvertent use of the GA’d accessory on the MP-40, the F8 stabilizer, in the first two maps. first of the series.
“I would say I used the wrong attachment because our everything was reset and Ray [OpTic’s head coach] told me after map two so then I switched it,” Shotzzy said of the post-series combo. “I just want to apologize to Toronto because I really didn’t mean to do it.”
Now at 2-2 for the year, OpTic has an appointment with the Boston Breach on Sunday, Feb. 20 at 3:30 p.m. CT with a spot in the winner’s bracket at the month’s grand prix coming is still going on. Toronto will play their final game for Major I when they face the Los Angeles Thieves on Saturday, February 19 at 6:30 p.m. CT.
