The most recent episode of the CoD Cast was yet another gem, as fans were let in on plenty roster intel and behind the scenes knowledge.

Started by former veteran player Anthony “NAMELESS” Wheeler, the show is live streamed on his Twitch channel, where he invites pro players and others from the Call of Duty esports community to discuss the scene.

And of course, with the current hot topic in CoD being rostermania, there was no shortage of roster discussion – as well as a few intel leaks.

At the center of rostermania is the rumored OpTic Gaming split, and potential for a swap between OpTic’s Matthew “FormaL” Piper and Luminosity’s Sam “Octane” Larew.

There has been lots of evidence stacking up suggesting that this is a certain move, such as images of FormaL apparently scrimming with the LG roster, and Echo Fox player strongly hinting it on numerous occasions.

And the conversations on the CoD Cast have doubled down on this, as caster and former pro Joey “MerK” De Luca all but flat out stated FormaL’s new team, as he stutters on the word “Luminosity”, catching himself mid sentence.

“Some [FormaL fans] will still support OpTic, but some will say: ‘I’m not going to support OpTic anymore, I just support FormaL he’s my favorite player – I hope Lumi-, uh you know whatever team wins’.”

The conversation throughout the CoD Cast also seemed to hint strongly that Octane and FormaL will be a straight swap, as the cast debated which players and teams would perform best elsewhere.
