One of the most well known competitive Call of Duty players is taking a break from the pro circuit, and he shall be stepping out of any competitive Advanced Warfare tournaments for the time being. Nadeshot, who has been on Optic gaming for a while now, has stated that his break is related to various personal choices in his life.
Nadeshot is now a co-owner in Team Optic, and he believes that by stepping out of the pro circuit, he can focus on finding a more determined player to fill his spot. Nadeshot did mention that he would like to return to competitive Call of Duty, most likely after the next Call of Duty titles is released. However, for the time being, Nadeshot has revealed that he “Just needs some time to step back and pursue other things that he's passionate about."
Nadeshot continued to talk about how his drive and passion just isn’t as strong as it needs to be. Even though Optic has won the past 3 out of 5 major tournaments, Nadeshot's mindset entering into these tournaments has been "to not lose" instead of "to win."
It will be interesting to see if Optic can find a filler who is more passionate about the game than Nadeshot himself, and a lot of speculation has spread the internet around who a suitable replacement could be for Team Optic.
We wish Nadeshot and Optic gaming the best of luck going forward. We’re interested to see how things evolve as Call of Duty Advanced Warfare nears it's end.
