Following the closure of esports brand Envy, owner and founder Mike “Hastr0“Rufial and the equivalent of OpTic Hector”H3CZRodríguez took to YouTube to discuss the merger.
Speaking on the H3CZ podcast, Hastr0 said: “I said to myself when we did this, ‘it might not make sense to foster multiple brands and spread out our resources’. But I said ‘let’s see what happens’. So we started building again with both brands and I saw a lot more potential with OpTic and what we were doing.”
“The green wall accepted me. With everything that had happened, I felt accepted by OpTic. For me, it didn’t make sense to take a lot of resources.”
