Apparently, the league fined Octane for his outraged tweets. He went on to tweet about that as well, and it appears that he had to take down all the posts expressing his displeasure, immediately after. However, the video he posted on his YT channel, talking about his team, is still up. Earlier today, he apologized for his behavior on Twitter.

Looks like Octane got the worst of the outrage against Call of Duty League

This is what Octane posted on Twitter earlier today, apologizing for his actions.

Interestingly, the tweet immediately before this one was this:

We do not know if Octane was truly repentant or coerced into it, but the tweet right before it makes you wonder. Twitter users were quite suspicious of this apology too.

As you see, many believe that the Call of Duty League forced an apology out of the player. This does make sense, given the fact that Seattle Surge had a legitimate reason to get angry with the result of the match. The League brushed off “Slacked” getting disconnected as an issue on the player’s part. hence, the organizers made no offer of a replay. CDL stood by the match results even though Seattle Surge faced London Royal Ravens a player short.

The structure and format of the event had to be changed due to the pandemic. This incident may result in the League becoming more considerate about connectivity issues; at least as long as the competition continues online.  While these are uncertain times, surely the organizers will take into account, and consider solutions for, certain issues moving forward.

What do you think of Octane’s reaction?
