I have been released from @OpTicGaming. I am a free agent for the 2014 season.

In big news for the Call of Duty gaming community, “JKap” or Jordan Kaplan to you and me, has left OpTicGaming. The now-free agent made the announcement via his Twitter page.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. JKap only rejoined OpTic from Team Envy on September 1. Meaning he stayed with the team for just over three months. He said upon his arrival at the team:
I’M GLAD TO BE A PART OF THE @OPTICGAMING FAMILY! HOWEVER, JUST LIKE WITH NV, I’M NOT MOVING INTO THE HOUSE (YET).
2. JKap was a champion with OpTic until his sudden departure in 2011.
3. He’s made no statements about future moves:
Right now, I promise you all that I have no idea about my next team. All I know is I'll be at UMG Philly either as a player or spectator.

4. E-Sports Nation reports that JKap had “just” moved into the team house making his sudden departure from the group even more puzzling.
5. Leaving OpTic cements a bad month for JKap who seems pretty pissed off that Kobe has resigned with the Lakers.
