News broke tonight that Saints would be leaving OpTic Gaming and joining Strictly Business. This news come as a surprise since just earlier this week, the new OpTic Gaming roster was formed after Ricky and Parasite left for Curse Las Vegas. There’s no word on who will be OpTic Gaming new 4th yet. Below is a statement issued by Saints for leaving OpTic Gaming:
I want to start this tweet by saying thank you to the OpTic organization, players, and supporters for the overwhelming amount of love you showed me when I joined the Green Wall. With that being said, this is not for me. When I joined the organization my gut felt that this was a mistake.
I left a team with championship potential in hopes to win a championship for OpTic Gaming. Playing for OpTic was an awesome experience but Strictly Business is where I belong. I hope you guys understand my decision and continue to support me throughout my tenure in COD eSports. Regarldess I hope i can still be friends with the guys from OpTic, There all great people and i wish them the best of luck. I got 4th with sB at Philly, with barely any chem, OpTic just isnt for me. Thank you to the true supporters <3
This leaves OpTic Gaming currently needing 1 player for the upcoming $1 million dollar Call of Duty 2014 Championship tournament. Nadeshot later left this on twitter:
Wish I could say something that would change the situation we’re in, but I can’t. No control over players deciding to leave, sorry guys.
