Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3
Scump started competitive Call of Duty in Call of Duty Black Ops season at. Scump arose quickly in the competitive Call of Duty scene, making his first championship win in that very game with Quantic LeveraGe at MLG Dallas. He would finish in the Top 6. After the Call of Duty Black Ops season, and the first two months of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 season, Scump left Quantic and then joined OpTic Gaming in a controversial 'swap' that saw OpTic release ProoFy to join Quantic LeveraGe, and Scump leaving Quantic to join OpTic. Scump and company would go on to be the most dominant team in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 season.
Black Ops II
Scump and OpTic would stay together for the Call of Duty: Black Ops II season. OpTic would take their only 1st place finish at UMG Chicago, but would never finish outside of the top 10. However, they continued to grow in streaming and YouTube. Scump would continue to prove he was one of dominant players in the game, playing well at almost every event. The squad would eventually part ways with Merk, and pick up JKap for the rest of the season. However, the teams placements would not improve with the swap.
Scump stayed on OpTic going into the Call of Duty: Ghosts season. However, after a 9th place finish at the MLG Fall Championship and a 13th place finish at UMG Philadelphia, Scump announced he would be leaving OpTic and joining Team EnVyUs alongside Merk, ProoFy, and Goonjar. He stated that a rivalry with Nadeshot was causing problems in the house and on the team. The day before hitting the two week mark of his departure from OpTic, Scump announced that he was leaving EnVy and returning to OG. He would join the lineup of NaDeSHoT, MBoZe, and Clayster for the Call of Duty Championship 2014. Here, the squad faced a lot of adversity, but finished 3rd for the second year in a row. After Champs, the team picked up ProoFy to replace MBoZe, who then became captain of OpTic Nation. The new team placed a disappointing T8 at UGC Niagara, and was invited to attend the MLG X Games Invitational. Here, OpTic performed at the next level, advancing all the way through their bracket to face Team Kaliber in the Grand Final. Scump played particularly well throughout the entire tournament to lead OpTic to victory, and become one of the first Gold Medalist for Call of Duty. The next few events were inconsistent for Scump and his team, with 4th and 5th placings at Gfinity 3, UMG Dallas, UMG Nashville, and MLG CoD League Season 3 Playoffs.
Upon release of Advanced Warfare, OpTic parted ways with Clayster and ProoFy and added Crimsix and FormaL to the team. The team dominated the first five months of the game, placing second at the first event of the year, MLG Columbus 2014 and placing first at UMG Orlando 2015, the MLG Pro League Season 1 Playoffs, and the Call of Duty Championship's NA Regional event. At the 2015 Call of Duty World Championship, the team placed a disappointing 7th after they went into the event as the clear favorites. After the event, Scumps's longtime teammate, NaDeSHoT, decided to take a break from competitive Call of Duty and was replaced Karma by with Scump becoming the team captain. As captain of OpTic Gaming, Seth led the team to 6 more championships and 2 more Pro League Regular Season wins to end the Advanced Warfare season. They won ESWC 2015 and Gfinity Spring Masters 1 with Enable in place of Karma, but as they returned to the United States they went to California to compete at UMG California 2015 with Karma. When they won UMG Cali it marked their 3rd straight event win in three consecutive weekends in three different countries. They then finished 1st in Season 2 of the MLG Pro League to qualify for S2 Playoffs at the summer XGAMES in Austin, Texas, where he and OpTic defended their title and won his second gold medal. He came up with the name "Scumpii2Chainz" in honor of this win as he became the only eSport player to win back-to-back XGAMES gold medals. OpTic and Scump then got a reality check after they finished 2nd to FaZe at UMG Dallas 2015 and Gfinity Summer Championship after his team thought that the competition was getting really easy. They bounced back as they won UMG Washington D.C. 2015 and Season 3 of the Pro League, where they went 11-0 in the season. Once again, they fell short and placed 2nd to Scump's ex teammate, Clayster's FaZe team for the the final time in AW. Scump then went on to win the final event of Advanced Warfare, MLG World Finals, with OpTic Gaming. He stated that the World Finals was the only event where he felt like he got carried, but it still marked Scump's and OpTic's most successful year by far. They won 9 championships, all 3 of the online Pro League Season, appeared in 10/11 Grand Finals, they won many online tournaments hosted by MLG and UMG, earned 1,651,320 pro points, and Seth had the most pro points out of any player with 447,975.
Black Ops III
Going into the Call of Duty: Black Ops III season Scump confirmed that OpTic Gaming would not be making any roster changes, like many other teams. OpTic Gaming went on to successfully qualify for the Call Of Duty World League NA. However, their success from Advanced Warfare did not carry over right away. Scump and OpTic were one of eight teams to be invited to the Totino's Invitational 2015, where they ultimately ended up placing second to a new Rise Nation roster after FormaL had only played Black Ops III for a few days. After they came home from this disappointing loss, Scump shared an "eSports Team of the Year" award with his teammates as well as OpTic. Two days later OpTic qualified for Stage 1 of the 2016 COD World League North America Pro Division after they beat both, Orbit.NA and Apotheon eSports. Scump and his team remained in first for the majority of the season leading up to UMG South Carolina 2016. However, that didn't matter as they ended up losing to H2k-Gaming on last map of a best of seven in the second round of the tournament. OpTic placed 5-8th and was their worst placing and first time not appearing in the grand finals of a major LAN event since Call of Duty Championship 2015. This loss seemed to light a fire under Scump and his teammates as they went home and won three out of four of the online CWL Challenger Divsion tournaments and finished first in the COD World League. OpTic finished with a 20-2 win loss record and Scump was once again declared as the MVP of another online league. They then went into Stage 1 Playoffs with the number one seed where they took out TSM, Elevate, and then beat Rise in round 11 of the seventh map in the grand finals to take out the two-time Black Ops III champions. This marked Scump and OpTic's first major LAN win in the Black Ops III season. Scump went home for two days before he had to fly out Australia for the 2016 Crown Melbourne Invitational, where they ended up beating European Stage 1 champs, Millenium, in the grand finals to win back-to-back major LANs.
