According to the coach for OpTic Gaming’s Call of Duty team Tyler “TeeP’ Polchow, Thomas “ZooMaa” Paparratto, previously declared as a substitute player under the CWL’s new roster rules will be playing with OpTic Gaming during the Pro League. According to Teep, who revealed this during a stream on Twitch, ZooMaa will replace Brandon “Dashy” Otell, as OpTic Gaming needs to “figure out some issues with Dashy.” No further details have been given other than this change will be for the next two weeks at the very least.
The new CWL roster rules, specifically the ones surrounding finding substitute players, have been a topic of controversy recently, as some teams have used these roster rules to replace some of the brand new players that have earned their way into the Pro League with already popular and established players. This most notably happened on the UYU team with Tristan “Spoof” Green, a would-be Pro League player who was replaced by the more popular player Anthony “Methodz” Zinni. However, it appears OpTic Gaming is using this rule as intended, to make sure they have a full roster in the event of one player being unable to play.
