OpTic Gaming takes out the Call of Duty World League Global Pro League Stage 2 playoffs


Say that two times fast.

OpTic Gaming has emerged victorious in the Call of Duty World League Global Pro League Stage 2 playoffs.

Hosted by Major League Gaming (MLG), eight of the world’s top teams battled it out over last weekend for a stake in a $500,000 USD prize pool.

“It’s really crazy how we turned it around,” OpTic Gaming’s Seth ‘Scump’ Abner said.

“We’ve been putting a tonne of time in as a team and it’s just great that it showed off. I’m proud of every single one of these guys. Every single one of them stepped up when they needed to.”
