OpTic Gaming and Envy merge to create OpTic Texas CDL team

No longer rivals

After hinting towards the move for months, OpTic Gaming and Team Envy have merged their two organizations to form a new Call of Duty League team, OpTic Texas.

After a disappointing CDL season for both Envy and OpTic, the two teams have merged. It has been in the works since the end of the 2021 Call of Duty League season and will retire both the OpTic Chicago and Dallas Empire branding.

The new roster for the upcoming season will consist of Hotzzy, iLLeY, Scump and Dashy, and Rambo returning as coach.

“We’ve competed against each other since 2008, and I have a ton of respect for Hector and what he’s built,” Envy’s chief gaming officer Mike “Hastr0” Rufail said in a press release. “We genuinely care about each other. We are going to be much stronger together than apart.”

“I love Dallas, Seth loves Dallas, everyone in OpTic loves being in Texas,” OpTic Gaming CEO Hector “HECZ” Rodriguez said. “This is the best thing for OpTic. Period.”
