A wild weekend at the Call of Duty Stage 2 Playoffs saw a return to form for OpTic and EnVy, but the story everyone will be talking about is what happened between Formal and Clayster after the Loser’s bracket finals.
eUnited shocked OpTic with a 3-0 victory early in the Winner’s bracket, with OpTic getting a chance for revenge later on in the Loser’s final, sending eUnited home 3-2 and moving on to face EnVy in the Grand Final. If Clayster is to be believed however, OpTic handled their success with little class.

Formal said "you fucking suck" to each one of us as we fistbumped, so, take that with a grain of salt.— eU Clayster (@Clayster) July 30, 2017
The Founder of MLG weighed in on the matter, letting it be known he was not happy with what went on.
Talk whatever smack you want to during the match but be classy on the way out.— Dr. SkiDance (@MLGSundance) July 31, 2017
However, Formal may have been upset with something that happened earlier on in the tournament. With Clayster’s history against OpTic, it is very possible that FormaL was not acting unprovoked.
Alright - I need more info. @OpTic_FormaL may have been provoked a day earlier.— Dr. SkiDance (@MLGSundance) July 31, 2017
Again- I expect all pros to act like pros.
Set an example
The Call of Duty Championship is less than 2 weeks away, taking place at the Amway center in Orlando on August 9th -13th. It is still unknown if any players involved in this incident will face disciplinary action, though it seems MLG will at least have a word with Clayster and FormaL. OpTic and eUnited have both qualified for the CWL Championship, it will be very interesting if they match up against each other and add another chapter to the OpTic - Clayster rivalry.
