OpTic Dashy made news by not making it to the start of the CWL Pro League 2019 season, ZooMaa was invited to replace Dashy for the time being. After OpTic Gaming’s win with ZooMaa on Day 2, ZooMaa was asked what his thoughts are on playing with OpTic Gaming.
With FaZe Clan out of the 2019 CWL Pro League, ZooMaa was unsure what he was going to do next, until he got the phone call. News broke out that Dashy wasn’t going to make it in time for the start of the CWL Pro League season due to complications at the border.
OpTic found themselves down a man, and in need of a replacement immediately. That’s when ZooMaa got the call. Being a top player, ZooMaa was the perfect choice and addition to OpTic unfilled line-up. Although OpTic lost on the opening day, no one was to blame. Adding just one new player to a roster changes the dynamics and strategies involved. OpTic Gaming did have close matches in their loss to Midnight which was a positive. So they weren’t necessarily playing with blindfolds on. Still, with no chance to scrim with the new addition of ZooMaa on opening day, OpTic did what they could. Day 2, however, was a completely different story, as OpTic beat UYU and broke even in the standings with a 1-1 record.
ZooMaa Gives His Thoughts on Playing With OpTic Gaming
After OpTic Gamings win against UYU, CoD reporter Jess Brohard pulled ZooMaa in to get this thoughts on what it was like playing with OpTic Gaming. ZooMaa isn’t a stranger to OpTic as he’s friend with many members on the team, and go back a long way. Here are the questions Jess Brohard asked ZooMaa, with his responses.
Jess Brohard: “How does a win for a team that you’re stepping in for feel different from a win for FaZe clan?
ZooMaa: “This is different cos the rules are all messed uyp and I’ve never played with these guys before so just getting a win under our belt feels good.”
Jess Brohard: “And what was the adjustment process like, figuring out how to play with OpTic?”
ZooMaa: “It was tough honestly. We didn’t know who was running the Maddox. Who was doing what. And who ever was running the Maddox wasn’t comfortable with it because they don’t use that gun. It was tough. We’ve been scrimming a lot. We didn’t get a chance to scrim at all yesterday which really killed us I think going into that Midnight match. But we came here early today, we practiced a little bit got our stuff down and we we’re frying ins scrims so we’re looking good.”
ZooMaa: “I just like to play. You know, thank you to the Optic guys for picking me up as a sub. I enjoy playing with them, I enjoy playing Call of Duty so, very happy that I’m not sitting at home watching. I get to play with my friends and have a good time.”
ZooMaa, the Italian Stallion, will be preparing with OpTic Gaming for today’s match against Evil Geniuses which starts at 7:30 PM Eastern Time. Here’s Where to Watch CWL Pro League 2019 Matches.
