Simp Claims That Scump Comparisons Are ‘Annoying’

Simp Claims That Scump Comparisons Are ‘Annoying’

The new era of Call of Duty is rapidly overtaking the OGs, with a record number of rookie players being introduced to the CDL this season and more veterans hanging up their sticks. The epitome of the new era, Chris "Simp" Lehr, is already flying the flag high and has since been dubbed as the future greatest of all time by James "Clayster" Eubanks. However, he's not letting early success allow him to be compared to the current GOAT, Seth "Scump" Abner.

Simp, who has already won two world championships in the last three seasons since breaking out in Black Ops 4 with eUnited, has already been discussed in the same breath of the original OpTic Dynasty as being one of the top five players ever. 

Despite only competing in his fourth season as a professional, Simp has already been compared to the Call of Duty king, Scump, given their somewhat similar roles, although Simp has now claimed that the comparisons are "annoying". 

Simp Plays Down 'Annoying' Scump Comparisons

In a recent Q&A on YouTube, taking questions from a Twitter thread, Simp was quizzed on whether or not he feels like he has "a lot of weight on his shoulders with constantly being compared to Scump throughout his career?"

The two-time World Champ and reigning MVP instantly branded the comparison as both "annoying" and a "blessing", pointing out that they do play very differently. 

"Honestly, the comparisons do get very annoying for me, mainly because I feel that we are two separate cases. There's nothing to take away from the two of us. You know, he's been frying for eight years, I've just started frying," Simp said.

"When it's all said and done I do feel like we'd have had very similar careers, but Scump is literally a god on the map. Being able to be compared to him this early on is kind of a nice feeling," he added. "I'm just trying to be my own person though."

 

Simp Applauds Scump's Content Game 

Despite being slightly annoyed about the comparisons, Simp did claim that the main difference between the pair is Scump's content game. 

"Without him or "Nadeshot" [Matthew Haag], or OpTic in general, I think COD wouldn't be on the map as much as it is. Even though there were a lot of people contributing to it [the content game], those guys were going hard and doing it better than anyone else."

Whether Simp could overthrow the king in the future is a debate that can only be argued down the line, although the Vanguard season has a large probability that the pair will go head-to-head for another World Championship bout. 

For now though, Simp is trying to be his own man, and although the two play secondary sub-machine-gun roles, maybe we should enjoy the both of them before one retires.
