Pro Call of Duty player: ‘Everyone is gonna beat us’

Honesty is the best policy

Competitive endeavors foster competitive spirits. It’s standard fare for competitive types to at least play the chest-beating and braggadocio parts. Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right. Or something like that.

So, it’s sort of incredible to hear a professional esports player being perfectly frank about his team’s chances. Ahead of the Call of Duty World League New Orleans event, Epsilon Esports’ Dave Davies gave the following interview to Dextero:

“Everyone is going to beat us.” “I don’t expect to do good this event because we ain’t very good.” “Give it time. Around April and we’ll be back like we were.” At least Davies is confident about something.

How’s this for a tempered underdog story: Epsilon outperformed Davies’ expectations and beat someone. It knocked off Team Vitality 3-1 in pool play. But, Epsilon also finished at the bottom of Pool B and has to go through the losers’ bracket for the rest of the weekend.

Just wait until April though. Epsilon’s gonna be damn good in April.
