Enigma6 Group
Returns to Enigma6
October 25, 2018
Diabolic will return to Enigma6 Group, the slayer confirmed in a tweet earlier in October.
ANALYSIS
It appears as if Diabolic will not be teaming again with Sender, his former Enigma6 teammate, as the organization has decided to go in another direction in terms of players. Diabolic will join Kade and General as the veterans on the team, with Kismet and Frosty acting as the unproven talent in what figures to be a fairly competitive roster.
No longer on Enigma6
August 30, 2018
Diabolic is no longer under the Enigma6 banner according to a tweet posted by Sender on Wednesday. The two are expected to be a duo to begin Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
ANALYSIS
Diabolic finished the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships with a 0.97 which very nearly matched General's 1.00 KD--the second highest on the team. Unfortunately for Diabolic, his teammate for next season--Sender--posted a 0.87 KD at the pivotal tournament. The duo have been a stable combo for the past couple of years, teaming together on the infamous Dream Team, Renegades, Echo Fox and Amity Esports throughout the past couple of competitive seasons, but have never had consistent success throughout a given campaign.
Struggles abound in loss
June 17, 2018
Diabolic was never able to find his footing in the 3-0 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 2 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Diabolic was never able to put it together in this match, even though Enigma6 made the 3-0 loss as competitive as possible. Round 1 Hardpoint saw them trade leads back and forth until Luminosity permanently went out in front late in the round. Diabolic had a solid 1:30 on the objective, but he really struggled to slay with Luminosity, going just 18/31. He lost a ton of firefights, and it hurt his production. Round 2 Search & Destroy was the same way, as he had just one kill in the eleven game loss. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him have his moments, but he still had a sub-par stat line overall, going 16/19. He simply had problems slaying in this loss.
Shining moment comes in Round 3 CTF
April 2, 2018
Diabolic's massive Round 3 Capture the Flag was a major reason for Enigma6's 3-1 win over Red Reserve on Sunday. He earned an 81/81 KD during the lower bracket match Sunday at CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
While Round 3 Search and Destroy was far and away Diabolic's shining moment - one in which he opened the game with a 7/2 KD and earned streaks which helped Enigma6 snowball four flag captures before the end of the first half - it wasn't the only moment in which Diabolic performed admirably. Take Round 1 Hardpoint for example, in which Diabolic registered a 32/30 line and also finished with a team-high in kills.
Saw some struggles in loss
March 31, 2018
Diabolic did not have the best slaying performance in the 3-2 loss to UNILAD on Day 2 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
This match did not house the best slaying performances and Diabolic was no exception. He did not slay well in any of the three respawn rounds, going 25/37 in Round 1 Hardpoint, 15/18 in Round 3 Capture the Flag, and a lowly 19/34 Round 4 Hardpoint performance. While the slaying was not there for him, he had some moments in this one. He had a huge late game in Round 3 Capture the Flag. He had a counterpull of the flag that forced UNILAD to play defense instead of push to tie the game, and then popped off two kills to keep their flag in their base to win it. He also had two good showings in the Search & Destroy rounds, even netting double-digit kills as they blew a 5-1 lead in Round 5 Search & Destroy to lose the match.
Signs on with Enigma6
January 24, 2018
Diabolic will team with Enigma6 Group for the CWL National Circuit, the organization relayed earlier this week.
ANALYSIS
Diabolic will join his former Amity Esports teammate, Sender, on Enigma6 Group for the duration of the CWL North American National Circuit. It's perhaps the most prominent position Diabolic has been in since Dream Team's Stage 2 run during Black Ops III, in which the team nearly took first place. While the luster of Enigma6 has certainly been lost given where the organization ranked coming out of Infinite Warfare, this should be a good opportunity for Diabolic to gain more exposure, particularly if the team does well.
Lists himself as free agent
January 19, 2018
Diabolic will be a free agent, according to the player, who reported as such on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Diabolic is expected to leave Amity Esports after a short stint with the organization. It's not necessarily a guarantee, however, as Diabolic teased he may have something already lined up, presumably with one of his former teammates, or perhaps the organization itself. More information should be available as the season progresses.
Signs on with Amity Esports
November 5, 2017
Diabolic and company will be joining Amity Esports, the organization announced over the weekend.
ANALYSIS
Only a few days after leaving Draco Esports, Diabolic and the rest of his roster consisting of Happy, Remy, and Mosh will join Amity Esports. Given Amity isn't necessarily a household name in Call of Duty, it's not a guarantee this roster will stick with the org should they put together a massive run early in the year. But for now, it's a perfect home for a team that has yet to string together much success.
Free Agent
Leaves Draco Esports one day after signing
November 1, 2017
Diabolic has left Draco Esports after it was discovered the organization was not legitimate, the slayer tweeted on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Well, that ended pretty fast. Diabolic and company only made it one day under the Draco banner until they left, perhaps rightfully assuming the organization was not sponsored by Nike, which apparently was presented to them as such. Without an organization just a week before the launch of the new game, it still seems likely the roster should be able to find a new organization before any major tournaments kick off.
Free Agent
Finds new lineup
September 27, 2017
Diabolic will be teaming with Mosh, Remy and Ivy to begin the new competitive season, the player announced over the weekend.
ANALYSIS
It's a bit of a surprise to see Diabolic partnered with Mosh and Remy given that he previously tweeted he would teaming with KuavoKenny. In actuality, this roster has infinitely more potential than his previously rumored lineup of three, with Mosh having qualified for the 2017 Call of Duty World Championships with Echo Fox. Still, it's been over a year since Diabolic and Ivy were making waves in the competitive scene, and it'll be interesting to see whether this lineup can adept for "boots on the ground."
Free Agent
Teaming with Ivy and KuavoKenny
August 18, 2017
Diabolic is set to team with Ivy and KuavoKenny to begin the World War II season, the player announced on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Diabolic put together a miserable 2017 campaign, most notably teaming with Renegades in what turned out to be a forgettable foray into the scene. However, Diabolic did finish in second place during the CWL Stage 2 Playoffs, so it's not as if he is devoid of talent, and likely could use a change of scenery to help further his career. It's not a surprise to see Diabolic teaming with Ivy, but KuavoKenny joining the equation may be the most interesting bit of news, as the veteran announced his renewed interest in the game just a few days prior.
Let go from Renegades
February 26, 2017
Diabolic has been released from Renegades, the organization announced on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Lack of success will doom teams on the competitive bubble, and Renegades was no exception to the rule. Diabolic will join a suddenly jam-packed free agency pool as teams prepare for the start of the CWL Dallas and the cut-off date for the Call of Duty World League. Diabolic still has the same type of slaying potential that helped Dream Team capture second place at the Stage 2 playoffs in 2016. What team opts to take a chance on the slayer remains to be seen.
Best of Renegades in tough loss
December 4, 2016
Diabolic fought to a 53/58 KD in the elimination loss to Team Orbit at the PSX Invitational.
ANALYSIS
Diabolic was the lone bright spot in the bad loss to Team Orbit, which cut Renegades Playstation Invitational visit short. He started strong in Round 1 Hardpoint, opening up the game well, and even holding the Hardpoint with a nice solo push to try and get his teammates onto the hill. He also led a futile late push when the round was firmly in Team Orbit's grasp. He was also a team leader in Round 2 Search & Destroy, and nearly pulled out round 4 for his team, but he ran out of time before he was able to defuse the bomb. Round 3 Uplink saw him end the round with the only positive KD ratio any Renegades member (29/24), although he could not do much in the way of scoring points for his team. He will look to build upon his solid individual performance going forward.
Starts strong in loss
September 1, 2016
Diabolic went a paltry 67/79 in the Day 1 loss to Epsilon.
ANALYSIS
Diabolic had a very quick start to open up Call of Duty XP for Renegades, being the first player to five kills in the lobby. This streak gave his team a quick lead, and that lead would go back and forth in a tough loss. He ended the round with 30 kills and an excellent 1:48 Hardpoint time. He also led his team in defends with nine. Diabolic was very important to evening up the match in Round 2 Search and Destroy, ending with a nice 8/4 KD and three bomb plants. He had a huge flank to push two Epsilon players into the open. Diabolic had an average Round 3 Uplink, going 23/23. Early on in the round he had a bad, and hesitant, run, which wasted an opportunity. However, he put his team up 2-1 with a dunk; that lead would not last. Diabolic, like the rest of Renegades, struggled to do much in Round 4 Capture the Flag. He went 6/21, which saw Epsilon win the match.
Diabolic leads team in slaying in semifinal win
July 17, 2016
Diabolic ends with a good 133/130 KD in win over Luminosity.
ANALYSIS
In Round 1 Hardpoint, Diabolic was a quality role player, covering in the Hardpoint often to the tune of 1:12 Hardpoint time. He had a nice follow up behind Sender while he used his Tempest to hold. Diabolic's Round 2 Uplink was a classic tale of two halves. In the first half, he had a terrible miss on a wide open throw. In the second half, he had an excellent stop on a player with a wide open shot, and had a dunk to put his team up 2-1. Diabolic was the lone bright spot early in Round 3 Search & Destroy, winning Game 2 with a nice flank of Study, and getting an enormous stop of Spacely in Game 3 to all but win the game for dT. In Game 8, he had a great flank, but missed a player behind him, and died quickly. He led his team with 8 kills that round. He continued to play an important role in Round 4 Capture the Flag, opening up the scoring for his team. In the second half, he used a Heat Wave to stop two specialists in their tracks, allowing Chino to score. He led his team in slays again with 22. He used his specialist again in Round 5 Hardpoint, making use of his Camo in an offensive way, to take a Hardpoint. He ended with 54 seconds of Hardpoint time. He had the game-saving - at the time - interception in Round 6 Uplink. And in the final Round 7 Search & Destroy, he defused the bomb in Game 4, and took out Study in Game 7 to open up the map to help obtain a spot in the finals.
