Scump And Formal Raise Concern About Unfair CDL Player Locations Advantage

OpTic Gaming's exit in the Call of Duty League Stage 2 Major was one of the most heartbreaking moments in the history of the Green Wall, but from an outside perspective, it was a spectacle to behold.

After being knocked down to the lower bracket by a rampant Toronto Ultra, Minnesota took OpTic to a Game 5, Round 11, in which Lamar "Accuracy" Abedi came up clutch with one of the most insane three pieces ever seen in competitive Call of Duty history. With that, a struggling OpTic was dumped from the Major, which saw Toronto Ultra come out victorious.

In their post-event coverage over on Youtube, OpTic's quartet hosted yet another episode of their seasonal podcast, alongside CEO Hector "H3CZ" Rodriguez.

Within the opening instances of the podcast, the veteran T2P duo of Seth "Scump" Abner and Matthew "FormaL" Piper were very complimentary of the worthy winners. However, upon further discussion, the pair addressed an overarching problem with the online era.

After being prompted by H3CZ's comments of "I think that all of this will be solved the second that we get back to LAN." about OpTic's latest performances, FormaL opened up about a problem that has clearly been on the minds of the entire roster. 

FormaL said "We shouldn’t be letting another team play us from another country. I’m being serious. They shouldn’t be allowed to compete from Toronto … I think it’s unfair."

keen to divert this away from an assault on Toronto, his partner in crime Scump soon chimed in to say "You shouldn’t be allowed to be spread out. You shouldn’t be allowed to be in another country. That’s even worse than being spread out." in reference to sides like Florida Mutineers.

Whilst many may pinpoint this as sour grapes following an early exit, the message has been one discussed by the whole professional community since the league was forced online due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The roster conceded that unfortunately there isn't much that can be done, albeit most teams now reside in Dallas, Texas. Dylan "Envoy" Envoy played devils advocate by stating that the city-based franchises have team houses and headquarters in other regions across the United States, such as the Rokkr, adding that not everyone can play from Dallas. 

In a perfect world, the CDL would have continued on LAN, but for the short-term future, the Green Wall must focus their attention on the online era should they want to make a run at the World Championships.
