Since the conclusion of the 2021 Call of Duty League (CDL) season, the annual dose of rostermania is well underway and while many members of the community are focused on Call of Duty: Vanguard's release, legendary Call of Duty player, and one half of the formidable T2P duo, Matt "FormaL" Piper, has announced he is stepping away from competitive Call of Duty.
After a turbulent Black Ops Cold War season, the 23-time event winner and 2017 CoD Champs MVP revealed he will be looking to focus more on content creation rather than competing against the very best players in the world.
FormaL Retires From Call of Duty
Widely considered to be one of the very best FPS players in the whole of esports, FormaL has won titles across Halo and Call of Duty, and during his time on OpTic, he became a household name often combining with teammate Seth "Scump" Abner to form the now legendary T2P partnership.
The announcement came shortly after Dylan "Envoy" Hannon announced his departure from the Chicago franchise, much to the surprise of the community. The Black Ops Cold War season had its ups and downs for the Green Wall and after showing improvements towards the end of the year, such significant changes to the team mark a new era for the OpTic brand.
Players React To FormaL's Retirement
After confirming his retirement, many players congratulated FormaL on his illustrious career having been at the top of COD esports for the past seven years.
What Next For FormaL?
Having revealed that his focus has switched to content creation, it's more than likely that FormaL will remain under the OpTic Gaming banner as a member of its content team. Having seen FormaL compete at numerous Gfinity tournaments, we're sure he will have no problems entertaining his fans! Happy retirement Matt.
