OpTic Gaming Los Angeles is one of the two official Call of Duty League franchise teams of Los Angeles, United States. It is owned and operated by the Immortals Gaming Club and OpTic Gaming. The team is the successor to OpTic Gaming, which had competed continuously in Call of Duty between 2009 and 2019.

History[edit]

Modern Warfare[edit]

Immortals Gaming Club announced their purchase of a Call of Duty League franchise team spot on July 1, 2019. Muddawg joined the team on September 23 as general manager. On October 24, the team announced their full starting roster, with TJHaLy, Dashy, Kenny, SlasheR and JKap joining. At the same time, the team branding was revealed as OpTic Gaming Los Angeles. On December 11, Chino and Goonjar joined as substitutes. Pacman joined as head coach on January 8, 2020.

OpTic opened their 2020 season by losing to both Paris Legion and "old OpTic" Chicago Huntsmen at Launch Weekend. After supposedly fixing their mistakes while not attending London, OpTic lost both of their matches in Week 3. Despite the poor start of the season, OpTic did not make any roster changes for their inaugural home series. Instead, SlasheR moved to Main AR and Dashy to SMG. The switch started slow but they reverse swept Los Angeles Guerrillas in the Battle of LA and then upset Minnesota RØKKR to win their first ever matches and advance out of groups for the first time. In a closely contested series OpTic fell to Dallas Empire 3-1 in the semifinals. After an extended break due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, OpTic returned in Week 6. Dallas defeated them in match one with the Guerrillas getting revenge in the elimination game and knocking OpTic out of the tournament. Chino came off the bench to replace JKap going into Week 7. Despite not preforming much better in terms of stats, Chino's positivity and teamwork skills immediately gave OpTic a boost and they made it out of the group stage for the second time after defeating Paris Legion and London Royal Ravens in the losers bracket. They beat Toronto Ultra in the semifinal and nearly beat Atlanta FaZe in the final but lost 3-1 in a very closely contested series. Despite making the team's first final, head coach Pacman was released from the team the following day and claims he was given no warning beforehand.

OpTic made it out of groups again in Week 8 after getting revenge against Minnesota RØKKR, who beat them in their first match, in the qualifier game. London beat them 3-2 in the semifinals but the team, especially SlasheR, continued to look very good throughout the whole event. In Week 10, the team returned to their earlier form and went out 0-2, with a particularly embarrassing series against Toronto Ultra who took map 1 by a score of 250-49. Kuavo said afterwards that the team had practiced terribly all season and that is to blame for their poor performances. On July 10, Chino was moved back to the bench with Dashy joining him. They were replaced by Drazah and Hollow from top challenger team UYU. Despite only winning one series in their first event with the new team in Week 12, they impressed and showed off their new talent in two tough series vs Florida Mutineers. They rounded out their regular season with a semifinal appearance in Week 13 that included a win over Chicago Huntsmen before losing 0-3 to Atlanta FaZe. OpTic finished the season in 9th place with 100 CDL Points.

OpTic Gaming started in Losers Round 1 at the Call of Duty League Championship 2020. They started off by defeating Los Angeles Guerrillas 3-2, with Dashy subbing in for Kuavo in Game 5 due to connection issues. OGLA then beat Minnesota RØKKR and Florida Mutineers 3-0 before losing to Chicago Huntsmen 2-3 in Losers Round 4 in one of the best series of the whole season. They finished the tournament Top 6.

Black Ops Cold War[edit]

Hollow, Chino, Dashy, and Goonjar were released on September 8.
