Damn, Nade has basically spent his whole life proving his worth to people, I could only imagine how he feels as well as being an introvert
CodsDrew (27 days ago)
Honeslty I am 100% glad nadeshot left cod to make 100 thieves but damn, I miss watching nade play
Diriaigioin (29 days ago)
Nadeshot in his prime was more respected an influential than ninja. Don't @ me
Plahdo (1 month ago)
That's just how OG fans are and don't realize how toxic they're being, they chased Nadeshot away because he was the scapegoat and now Karma who replaced him is gone after years of being their scapegoat... and now the scapegoat is already turning out to be Methodz after their first event. True fans don't act like that.

The only reason I got into optic is this guy. Watch a lot streamers and YouTubers but nadeshot is by far my favourite YouTuber so happy he’s successful 👍

He's not a big star in eSports, Call of Duty is a niche game.

Such an inspiring story miss his competing days, it won't happen but it'd be dope if he got a 100 thieves cod team together and was the captain

BO2 MLG was the most entertaining thing to watch at that time. Every team was just fun to watch and I feel like Optic’s most iconic team played then

This is actually a twisted story with a lot of false information. It was Nade, Flawless and Vengeance in Mw2... they picked up Merk for the last PCL before Nationals . They then went on to place 4th, not 8th at Dallas in mw2. More research would have served this video better. Good editing tho!

This video honestly got me in my feels. I remember being a 12 yearold watching every tournament Nadeshot played in, and all the game clips I could vividly remember watching live as it happend clenching my teeth. Nade will forever be one of my role models , and favorite content creator.

Let's face it,Nade's pro career was hot garbage and him being in Optic definitely hurt his teammates because he just wasnt ever as good as them BUT if it weren't for Nade Optic and CoD E-Sports wouldn't be as big as it is today and that's something nobody can deny
