To many, Seth “Scump” Abner is one of the core faces of Call of Duty as well as the Call of Duty League. As a member of one of the most renowned CoD organizations, OpTic, as well as NRG’s Huntsmen he’s made a name for himself as a charming, beloved, and highly talented member of the Call of Duty community. Scump has now come forward to reveal that the CDL allegedly attempted to pressure him into signing a contract without legal representation which has led to a widespread outcry against the Call of Duty League.

The Nitty Gritty Details

After kicking into high gear in 2020, the Call of Duty League has arguably been Activision Blizzard’s most successful foray into the realm of franchised esports. With personalities that could measure up against the best of the best in the WWE, high-level play, and a storied history in esports, the Call of Duty League has maintained itself in spite of its decisions thanks to players like Scump. However, it appears that the league itself may have been built on rocky foundations.

According to Scump, the CDL offered him a contract while telling him that he wouldn’t be allowed to play alongside not allowing his lawyers to review the contract. The response from the esports and gaming community has been monumental with influencers and brands making statements in support of the courage Scump showed in bringing this CDL contract situation to light.
