OpTic Gaming was one of the largest esports organizations in the world. In 2017 they had the best Call of Duty team with a rabid GreenWall fan base, they secured spots in both the LCS and OWL franchising and were still expanding.
They secured extra funding from Infinite Esports and Entertainment, which took the company out of the guiding hands of Hector 'H3CZ' Rodriguez, a move that proved to be fatal. Now, halfway through 2019, OpTic Gaming is just a brand under Immortals Gaming Club competing in the new CDL franchise league. Their LCS spot is being rebranded as Immortals and their Houston Outlaws OWL team will have to be sold.
In this podcast we look back at the OpTic dynasty and how it all fell apart.
