OpTic owner H3CZ requires Activision CDL teams to create their own camos

Owner of OpTic Gaming Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez has demanded that Activision Call of Duty League teams design their own in-game cosmetics after an “offensive” CoD Vanguard drop left something to be desired.

It’s safe to say that CoD Vanguard hasn’t had the best run when it comes to CDL cosmetics. First, it was the default team skins in Season 1 that cut you off huge wave of backlash. Some pro gamers even thought the developers were “trolling” her lackluster looks.

Now, weapon camouflages are in the spotlight for similar reasons. Since their reveal in February, many have criticized the unique weapon design, which features different colors for each of the 12 CDL teams.

Not only the designs were considered “offensive‘ by H3CZ, but they even mistyped OpTic’s name in the store and labeled the largest team in CoD as ‘Texas OpTics’ instead.

As a result, the OpTic owner has now asked Activision to cede control: “If they don’t try, let’s try,” he said on the latest OpTic podcast. “I’m offended”

Instead of unique designs for each franchise, all CDL teams received the exact same weapon camo with different colors. That’s the main point of frustration.

“If Activision gave us the template to do that, we’re not only relieving them of work, we’re essentially doing all the work they’re supposed to be doing, we’re also doing them a favor.”

With each squad gaining control of their own designs, H3CZ believes it would become “an instant competition.” Every single team would try to sell their fans the “stupidest” designs, he argued.

Instead, this year all fans have a single design. As a result, the OpTic owner already anticipates poor sales for the 2022 season.

“[CDL skins] didn’t really sell much,” he said, posing as Activision. “No shit, you gave us a damn acid trip that puked like a skin.”

“Thanks for buying the skins,” he then said to loyal Green Wall fans. “You don’t necessarily buy them because they’re cool. You buy them because you support a bigger picture.”

Those responsible ask to “leave it [OpTic] does it,” H3CZ demanded not only the “opportunity to be creative,” but also the chance to “do their best for the fans.”

Having created OpTic’s Halo Infinite skins from scratch, he certainly prefers the manual “process” to that of the CDLs. Whether things will improve during the Vanguard cycle remains to be seen.

For now, H3CZ and competitive CoD fans alike must hope that next year’s release will bring a step forward in that department. OpTic owner H3CZ requires Activision CDL teams to create their own camos
