Karma Returns to OpTic Gaming As Analyst, Creator
Former Call of Duty professional Damon “Karma” Barlow has returned to OpTic Gaming as a content creator and analyst. Karma was previously a member of the OpTic from 2014-2019 and helped the team secure the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship.
OpTic Gaming Owner Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez revealed Karma’s return in a preshow for the Call of Duty League Opening Weekend. Karma’s return has been established for months according to H3CZ. But the organization was waiting for the right time to reveal the news.
Karma is one of the most successful Call of Duty players in history. He is a 2013, 2014, and 2017 World Champion and the first player to win three championships. Karma won each title with a different organization and many fans consider him one of the Call of Duty players in history.
Karma eventually left OpTic at the end of 2019 and spent part of the Call of Duty League’s inaugural season with the Seattle Surge.
However, Karma did not finish the season with Seattle and retired from professional Call of Duty in June of 2020. Many fans were sad to see the iconic player step away from competitive Call of Duty but were excited to see what he would do next.
After months of speculation Karma and OpTic Gaming finally revealed the talented player is returning to the organization. Karma will be a content creator, analyst, and assistant head coach for OpTic Chicago. Some fans are sad that he is no longer competing, but many are happy for his return.
OpTic Chicago will face the Paris Legion in the first match of the Call of Duty League Opening Weekend. The match will take place on Friday, February 12 at 2:00 PM CT.
