As the Call of Duty League rolled into Seattle this weekend for the Seattle Surge home series, all eyes were on the home team and in particular, Sam ‘Octane’ Larew.

Larew, known to players and fans of the series simply as ‘Octane’, is one of the key players for the Surge.

However, after a dismal weekend of action for the Seattle outfit, Octane appeared to lose his cool following a number of defeats.

Taking to Twitter following Saturday’s events in Seattle, Octane claimed he has had enough of the game, tweeting out that he ‘didn’t want to play anymore’.

Of course, frustrations in esports and gaming, in general, can often lead to high emotion and reactive responses.

But after taking some time to cool off, Octane took to his socials again to tell fans he was going to take some time off to regroup.

 

It would appear that the pressures of social media are once again proving hard for the Call of Duty League star to deal with. Hopefully, with a clear head, Octane can come back fighting and better than ever for the Surge squad.

Why was Octane left angry at Call of Duty League?

A couple of things seem to have left Octane feeling a bit ‘peeved’ with the game.

First off, his team were beaten comfortably over the weekend in various games. The Surge lost in consecutive games to both the Los Angeles Guerillas and then the New York Subliners. Defeats in the league can be hard to take.

Secondly, Octane appears to have a problem with some of the game’s meta. A quick glance through the comments suggests he’s not too happy with how the game plays.

It remains to be seen when Octane will return. The next weekend of Call of Duty League takes place in Minnesota in two weeks’ time.
