Karma Offers Clayster Support After Admitting This Is The 'Lowest Point In My Career'
With six Call of Duty world championship rings between them - two of the three elite players to have secured a hat-trick of titles - James "Clayster" Eubanks and Damon "Karma" Barlow know their way around creating lasting legacies.
Despite never having teamed together, the pair are respected rivals, and even though they may have clashed over the years, sportsmanship has always shone through. This was made clear when Clay named Karma in his top-five players of all time, above his prodigy player Chris "Simp" Lehr.
Now, the championship-winning legends have exchanged on social media, with Karma offering some words of support for Clayster, who admitted that he's at the lowest point of his career.
Clayster Admits To Being At A Career Low
Clayster's twilight years have not quite gone to plan, even with him securing two world championships in the last four years. Following his win with eUnited, Clay was forced to make a new squad with the introduction of the franchised league, and faced the same fate following the switch back to four vs four which came into play just hours after Dallas Empire's champs heist.
A mixed year with New York Subliners saw Clayster take a mental health break, before returning for the end of the season. Then, as Vanguard rolled around, Subliners' roster entered turmoil, leaving Clayster to be dropped.
A series of wounding roster changes have now taken a toll on Clayster, and with no way back into the League for the remainder of the season, the three-time champ has now admitted that he's at a low of his career.
"Trying really hard not to lose full but this is by far the lowest point in my career I've ever been at," he said on Twitter.
Adding, "Vanguard does my head in sometimes," Clayster has now scared his devoted fans by edging towards a possible retirement.
Karma Shows Support For Old Foe Clayster
Karma and Clayster often passed like ships in the night, having seen the former replace the latter in the compLexity dynasty and both players being a part of different OpTic teams while under the same banner at the same time.
However, after seeing Clay vent his frustration on social media, a now-retired Karma offered words of support.
"People were willing to give me opportunities years after being on one of the absolute worst teams ever," Karma began, advising him that offers were still on the table for Karma despite being on the rotten Seattle Surge Modern Warfare 2019 roster.
"You got knocked down and are still trying. The CDL might not be in the cards for this year which sucks but I'd be mindblown if you don't get another shot. You'll make it through this shit. Too much passion," Karma added.
Even though Karma retired following his Seattle Surge nightmare, fans of Clayster might not have to be too worried, as a familiar engine in Modern Warfare 2 might just see him rise back to the cream of the crop.
