FlameSword who was one of the veterans competing this season and one of the most successful Halo players of all time. As such, he brought a lot of value to his team. As the first ever OpTic Halo member, he was very open to this idea of strengthening the content creation side of Halo and took charge by creating his own channel to provide daily content for his fans. Prior to his time on OpTic Gaming, he was able to find a lot of success with his former team Status Quo, where he was able to win three events, including the 2012 MLG Winter Championship. Due to his professionalism and easily likable personality, he was able to become a sponsored Red Bull Athlete which ultimately helped him get connected to OpTic Gaming.Although his years of competing may now be behind him, he is not done with competitive Halo or OpTic as he will now be the head coach for the team.
With OpTic now needing to pick up a fourth and the roster lock coming soon, the team needs to quickly make a decision. With a talented team of three and a decorated organization backing them up, anything is possible for this hungry OpTic Halo team.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiKn77pxnhUWhat do you think about FlameSword retiring from competing?
