The past few months has been a crazy ride for OpTic Gaming fans, CoD esports fans, and players/teams themselves. One particular person who’s been keeping things behind closed doors was Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez. Since having the team passed down to him in 2007, H3CZ took the team to new heights in 2010 when OpTic Gaming joined the Call of Duty competitive scene. Hector Rodriguez was the man behind OpTic Gaming, and many fans today were attracted to OG because of Hector and what his vision was for the team in esports.
When news broke out that OpTic Gaming’s parent company, Infinite Esports, was acquired by Immortals Gaming, fans were wondering what was going to happen to “H3CZ’s OpTic”. The team was going to have new owners, and this meant a huge shift in the organization’s path. Was the team going to continue competing in competitive Call of Duty? Were the players going to stick around, and most importantly, was Hector going to stay?
Recently, Hector closed down his Twitter account. there was nothing on it that would give away why he joined until he released a video on his youtube channel.
