Call of Duty legend Seth “Scump” Abner has surprisingly ended his final Call of Duty season abruptly. Followers of Call of Duty were anticipating the end of an era after he announced before the start of the Call of Duty season that it will be his last as a pro.
However, the era ended earlier than expected as Scump gave an emotional goodbye in the presence of friends, teammates, and family.
Scump was deep into the middle of the second Major of Modern Warfare online qualifiers and had already played one event before retiring.
The model of OpTic gaming posted a video on social media where he said his goodbye confirming his retirement and revealing that Brandon “Dashy” Otell will be his replacement in OpTic’s starting lineup.
“With the addition of Brandon back, I hope people are happy with the new roster, I think you guys are going to be disgusting. Bringing Brandon back made sense; life’s too short to hold grudges or be mad at each other. I hope he uses this opportunity to be a good teammate. I’m falling down so [Dashy] can go up.” Scump said.
Furthermore, the player revealed the strive to balance content creation, focus on competition, and interaction with fans in his farewell speech before stating that he contemplated retiring totally before the commencement of the season.
OpTic Texas then later made the confirmation of the starting lineup with Dashy included after Scump’s announcement.
Scump then cheered fans stating that the night wasn’t a sad one reiterating that it is a night of happiness, one that heralded a new chapter in his life and urged the fans to have fun.
Scump has won the Major League Gaming X Games gold medal twice, won the 2017 Best Console Player at the Esports Industry Award, and has an accumulated winning of more than $900,000.
