FormaL Slams 'Garbage' CoD Vanguard Amid Halo Switch

FormaL Slams 'Garbage' CoD Vanguard Amid Halo Switch

Having been a part of the OpTic roster that has felt the wrath of an Activision crackdown on CDL slander, Matthew "FormaL" Piper has taken no time in slamming the Call of Duty franchise following his retirement, claiming that they "can't fine me".

Why Did FormaL Stay Away From Coommunity Tournaments?

The now-retired former World Champion is set to be returning to competitive Halo, following the release of Infinite, and has been released from his shackles by Activision. With the developers renowned for fining official players who speak badly about their title, namely the likes of Seth "Scump" Abner and Sam "Octane" Larew, Formal has now used his freedom to slam Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Having seldom dropped in on Vanguard since being released, FormaL has avoided the competitive scene with a ten-foot barge pole, opting to stay clear of any of the community tournaments, and there's a simple reason why...

FormaL has claimed that Vanguard looks like "f**king garbage".

What Exactly Did FormaL Say About Vanguard?

Taking to Twitch, he said, "I’m not gonna lie, I think that game looks like f**king garbage. I think it looks boring, it looks s**tty in terms of gameplay. I think the spawns are s**t. There are glitches. There are bad maps."

He added, "I think they really dropped the ball on that one."

FormaL's return to Halo and retirement from the CDL means that he cannot face any punishment from the league for criticising the game, much like his T2P duo did in Scump back in the Modern Warfare era. "I can say that now. They can’t fine me for sh*t," he concluded. 

For now, FormaL is set to give his all in Halo, having previously tried out with the expected FaZe Clan roster and Spacestation Gaming. With a storied career in the sci-fi shooter prior to his Call of Duty career, he is now looking to take full advantage of the game's highly-praised roadmap and competitive readiness, something that has instantly rubbed up Call of Duty stans.
