“BRUCE. BRUCE. BRUCE.” The crowd screamed as the player hoisted the trophy. In a few short months, Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell went from being an upcoming player with lots of potential to one of the biggest stars in Call of Duty esports. From his modest start in the 2017 Infinite Warfare season, the 20-year-old Canadian is now voted as the best flex players and snipers in Black Ops 4.
Nicknamed due to his gruff, Caped Crusader-like voice, Bruce was known for being a Search and Destroy superstar at the start of his career. Along with fellow underage talents like Cellium, Illey, and ‘Rookie of the Year’ Simp, he dominated the online community with his exceptional gun skill and SnD expertise.
Coming into WW2, Dashy was picked up by Engima6 for CWL Dallas 2018 alongside General, Bevils and Decemate. Here, he forever made his mark in the professional scene by dropping 20 kills in a Game 5 SnD versus Rise Nation. This feat matched that of player Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter’s legendary performance at MLG Anaheim against Faze Clan during the Ghosts season. While his team placed poorly throughout the year, Dashy made a big impact in-game, and topped the leaderboards in SnD K/D ratios and Hardpoint slaying, making him one of the most versatile players of WW2.
In the build-up to Black Ops 4, he became a top prospect for teams looking to change up their play style. He was immediately picked up by the legendary Optic Gaming, alongside fellow young superstar TJHaly and three of the greatest players of all time: Scump, Karma, and Crimsix. Optic had just survived their worst year in the organisation’s history. Wanting a complete makeover, they dropped Octane and Methodz for Dashy and TJ. Many criticised Optic for dropping Octane, one of the best in the world, for an unproven player. Dashy stunned all his critics by giving one of the best individual performances by a player ever. He had a stunning 2.17 SnD K/D and an overall aK/D of 1.55, topping the leaderboards in both.

I am a journalist who’s passionate about climate change and climate justice. For me that’s the most important story I can write about and contribute to fixing. As a journalist, my way of going about it is to educate people about this existential threat that’s bogged down by skepticism, denialism, lack of comprehension of scope, and general apathy.
I also write about a lot of other things, like social justice, protests, pop culture, lifestyle, and esports. Albeit these stories won’t be as frequent as they depend on what I find fascinating and meaningful to write about at the moment.
This website is both my portfolio and my space to share interesting information- about myself or climate change. Any time I’m commission by a publication (fingers crossed) I’ll crosspost it here for all my audience to see.
This site may even turn into an actual blog from time to time. If I have any personal revelations that my audience can learn from, I may share it here
