OpTic Gaming Los Angeles reportedly much improved after roster change

This article is over 4 years old and may contain outdated information

One of the biggest surprises of the Call of Duty League season took place last week when OpTic Gaming Los Angeles made a huge roster switch. After a tumultuous few months, OpTic felt that a core change was needed to turn things around. This change was benching star player Brandon “Dashy” Otell and assault rifle player Martin “Chino” Cheen. In their place are two former amateur players from UYU, Zack ‘Drazah’ Jordan and Darien ‘Hollow’ Chverchko. While the move was questioned at the time, it’s reportedly already paying dividends in online CDL scrimmages.

OpTic Gaming making a late-season push?

As it currently stands, OpTic Gaming L.A. sits at eighth place in the Call of Duty League standings. After only amassing 70 points during the season, it’s clear that the core roster of OGLA simply wasn’t working. The organization tried to switch things up multiple times, benching veteran players and even firing the coach mid-season.

However, up until now, nothing has seemed to work. Enter Drazah and Hollow. According to Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi, of the New York Subliners, the newly revamped OpTic Gaming roster is shredding online. Twitter account CDLIntel has the clip of Accuracy talking about the new squad.

In the short clip, Accuracy revealed that the Subliners have in fact scrimmaged against OGLA’s new roster, and he says there’s an improvement. This doesn’t mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things, as OpTic needs to show the improvement at an actual Call of Duty League event. Although, this is good news for fans of the Greenwall.

OG next competes the London Royal Ravens Home Series next weekend starting July 17, 2020. It’s here that we’ll see just how smart it was to bench superstar Dashy for two former amateur players.
