According to the announcements, Karma joins the organization as a signed content creator and an analyst for the OpTic Chicago CDL team.

Previously competing for Seattle Surge, Karma retired in June 2020 when he said that he’s no longer interested in Modern Warfare. Before that, he played under OpTic Gaming for about four years before Call of Duty League began.
Most notably, Karma is known in the competitive scene as the first Call of Duty player to win three world championships. His excellent performance paired with entertaining content makes him a powerhouse signing. OpTic Gaming will see many benefits to having him on the org.
Call of Duty and CDL
The 2021 Call of Duty League season is officially underway. Today’s event in Atlanta started off the league and the CDL Kickoff Classic a few weeks ago excited the community.
Those who want more OpTic Gaming action can watch Chicago’s team tomorrow. Their first match of the 2021 Call of Duty League season takes place at 2 PM CT against Paris Legion. Until his next appearance, fans can find Karma online or streaming on Twitch.
