Seth ‘Scump’ Abner is arguably the biggest name in Call of Duty and one of the most recognizable in all of eSports, but after years of rumors of retirement he has explained why he hasn’t retired – and why he’s not making a massive move to full-time streaming is interested.
One of the oldest players in the CoD League, Scump is approaching 27 but showing no signs of slowing down.
While rumors of retirement have dogged him for some time – particularly given the size of his content channels and the inevitable success streaming would bring him – the King remains one of the most talented players in the league.
During a recent video for OpTic GamingScump spoke about retirement, streaming and finally why he’s still around.
In a recreation of First We Feast’s ever-popular online series Hot Ones, Scump sat down with OpTic Creative Director Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards for an interview while he ate hot wings, with some more serious conversations falling between the jokes and hot wings were scattered. caused suffering.
After discussing how much he loves the camaraderie of having a team you can jump up and “go into battle with,” Scump explained why he doesn’t think creating content would feel quite the same.
“Me and Zinni [Methodz] talked about it,” he said. “Once we move on to the content, everything will be stable. There will never be a high, there will never be a low … It’s just a steady baseline, and he said, ‘You’re going to be so bored when you retire.'”
Scump went on to insist that he didn’t want to end his career on a low like the Cold War winless season in 2021, but he did want to go on a high without crashing.
It’s fair to say that Scump’s eventual retirement will shock the Call of Duty community no matter how long we prepare for it – some fans have even hinted that it would be bigger than NFL GOAT Tom Brady’s retirement.
