Stepping away from competitive scene for now
May 31, 2018
ANALYSIS
MarkyB made sure to mention he would consider coming back to the competitive scene with the release of the new game, which means we almost certainly haven't seen the last of the veteran player. However, the fact that retirement has even come into question for the European player likely speaks to how far the former Millenium player has fallen. Given MarkyB never even reached the Pro League this year, it's fair to question whether he might be able to catch on with one of the premiere teams in his region come Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

No longer with Vitality
May 15, 2018
MarkyB is not a part of the Vitality roster, according the organization's update last week.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB didn't stick around on Vitality for long, joining the team for only a few weeks after previously playing for GGEA Purple. With Vitality slated to play in the CWL National Circuit, it's unclear whether MarkyB will get an opportunity to play against his former team in online competition.
Teaming with Vitality ahead of Stage 1 Relegation
April 18, 2018
MarkyB will join Vitality, the organization confirmed on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The move also brought about the dissolution of GGEA Purple, who MarkyB had been teaming with the majority of the competitive season. His return to Vitality is a noticeable upgrade for the team who won just 1 of their 14 games over the course of Stage 1. They'll fight in relegation against Nordic on Thursday, with the winner needing just one more victory in order to secure a spot in Stage 2 of the CWL Pro League.

Gone from Millenium
February 8, 2018
MarkyB was released from Millenium and is looking for a new organization to represent his team.
ANALYSIS
It's not exactly a surprise to see Millenium let go of MarkyB after the roster failed to qualify for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League. However, with MarkyB and Urban running roughshod through the UK National Circuit, there's a chance the duo could return to the organization that seems intent on earning a spot in the Pro League.
Really struggled in loss
December 9, 2017
MarkyB had a poor performance in the 3-0 loss to Echo Fox during group play on Day 2 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB, like Millenium as a whole, were thoroughly outclassed by Echo Fox. They actually got off to a quick start in Round 1 Hardpoint, but that quickly tapered off. MarkyB struggled to do anything in that round, and the two subsequent ones. Hewas held without a kill through three games in Round 2 Search & Destroy, and struggled to slay with Echo Fox in Round 3 Capture the Flag. MarkyB and Millenium will want to burn the tape of this match.
Sees playoff hopes cut short
August 10, 2017
MarkyB fell short in a loss to Splyce in Group G on Day 2 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB's rough year ended on another sour note as Splyce knocked him out from bracket play in a 3-0 series. However, MarkyB was able to keep the games relatively close. This was thanks to some smart playing and strong slaying stats not only from MarkyB, but from his team as a while. In Round 3 Uplink on Throwback, for example, MarkyB worked with QwiKeR to constantly throw the ball forward towards Splyce. The small move allowed Millenium to sneak in a handful of points when fights went their favor.
Qualifies for 2017 CoD World Champs
July 3, 2017
MarkyB and the rest of the Millenium roster qualified for the Call of Duty World Championships after battling through the European Last Chance Qualifiers.
ANALYSIS
It probably shouldn't have come as much of a surprise, given Millenium were on the cusp of qualifying for the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs. MarkyB and company could actually be a bit of a dark horse team at the August tournament, provided their newest addition, QwiKeR, assimilates with the team in time.
Respawn struggles in loss
June 25, 2017
MarkyB struggled in respawn rounds as Millenium were swept by Red Reserve and eliminated from CWL Sheffield on Championship Sunday.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB struggled from the get go in this one. He limped to a 19/29 KD, and 37 seconds on the objective in Round 1 Hardpoint, as Millenium were behind the ball immediately. They had no answer for Urban and Joee early on, going down 100-39, and without a run by Moose, had little offense in total, losing 250-143. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw MarkyB get the final kill in Game 7, but got first blood after first blood as they mounted a comeback and forced an 11th game -- one they lost. Round 3 Uplink was over before it started -- five points from Urban in 90 seconds proved that. They scored five in the second half, MarkyB one of those five, but it was over by then.
Support role in win
June 24, 2017
MarkyB was laid back in the easy 3-0 win over District Red on Saturday at CWL Sheffield.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB did not have a bad match, but he was largely in the background. His teammates dominated. Round 1 Hardpoint saw MarkyB have a KD of 21/22, with 54 seconds on the objective. He was not bad, but he simply sat back and let his teammates do their thing. He had the final kill in Game 1 of Round 2 Search & Destroy, setting the tone for a eight-game win. He, again, was background noise in Round 3 Uplink, going 19/26 with zero points in what turned out to be an easy win after a blowout in the second half.
Falls with the rest of Millennium against Epsilon eSports
May 8, 2017
MarkyB failed to deliver much of anything against Epsilon eSports, only notching a KD of 68/71 as Millennium somehow crumbled on Day 3 of Group Yellow of the CWL Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB would be the only member of Millennium to have a negative KD against Epsilon eSports when all was said and done, but considering all of Millennium lost anyway, he can't be the only one to blame. Round 1 Hardpoint saw MarkyB start slowly with a KD of 22/34 and only 32 seconds of objective control time. MarkyB would fare slightly better in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he'd break even with a 5/5 KD despite Epsilon eSports destroying the rest of his team that round. Round 3 Uplink would see MarkyB at his best with a 30/16 KD and putting a point on the board out of Millennium's nine. But MarkyB would ultimately crumble with the rest of Millennium in Round 4 Hardpoint, where he'd fizzle with a paltry KD of 11/16 and only a single second of hill control time.
Sees his tournament life slip away
May 7, 2017
MarkyB pulled out all the stops with a 55/53 KD in a loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of Group Yellow of the CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB tried to stop the bleeding as his team slid into fourth place seed in their last game against Luminosity Gaming. Like the rest of the weekend, Millenium just couldn't coordinate or land their shots as only Moose and MarkyB really showed up for their team. MarkyB posted a great 13/7 KD in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Throwback by clutching several games, but in Game 11 Millenium still lost because of a foolish team kill by Peatie. Then in Round 3 Uplink MarkyB posted a 28/24 KD, the highest in his team, and his team's only dunk. Frustratingly, MarkyB could do nothing but watch his team crawl into last place.
Can't close out games
May 6, 2017
MarkyB nearly sacks his team with an 85/82 KD in a loss to eUnited on Day 2 of Group Yellow of the CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB couldn't show up in the early games after a difficult Round 1 Hardpoint that saw him whiff a 100-point lead. Despite leading Moose well, MarkyB was unable to direct Nolson and Peatie or himself in a useful direction. With three members of Millenium having weak shots, eUnited was able to clutch out games. Round 4 Hardpoint on Retaliation did see MarkyB show up with a 30/26 KD. But in that round, MarkyB made bad calls such as breaking the Cathedral hill with only seconds left, guaranteeing that eUnited would have favorable spawns for the Destroyed Building Hardpoint.
Strong play in loss
May 6, 2017
MarkyB was good, but not good enough to overcome Luminosity Gaming in a 3-1 loss to open Day 2 of Group Yellow of the Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB has nothing to hang his head about in the loss. He and Nolson got Millenium out to an early, and commanding, lead in Round 1 Hardpoint -- he used his Bombardment and Trinity Rockets to great effect, and raked up the kills otherwise. He had a big push to get Millenium over 200 points and, what looked like, a sure victory. However, Octane woke up and he and Slacked led Luminosity to a huge comeback. Round 2 Search & Destroy was another close one, as Millenium fell six games to five. MarkyB had the final kill in Games 7 and 9, but it was not enough. He had a huge first half of Round 3 Uplink, where he was all over the place, slaying everyone, en route to a big first half lead. Millenium slowed down in the second half and played it safe, which resulted in his 23/24 KD, though he was much better than it showed. He also added in two points in the round. Round 4 Hardpoint was never really there for Millenium, as Luminosity Gaming were in charge for all of it. He played well though, posting 23 kills and 1:14 -- he was the only Millenium member to be above one minute on the hill, which shows their objective struggles as they dropped the round and the match.
Flops in a tough match
May 6, 2017
MarkyB couldn't match Epsilon eSports with a 37/50 KD on Day 1 of Group Yellow of the CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
It was a rough match for MarkyB as he went against his European brothers in a stomp of series. Sadly, MarkyB was at the center of this poor performance for Millenium thanks to a limp KD in every round. That's not to insinuate that the loss was entirely MarkyB's fault. Rather, it was a team effort. Round 1 Hardpoint was a blow-out with Millenium unable to score even a hundred points. However, the true weaknesses came out in Round 2 Search & Destroy. Game 1 saw MarkyB steal first pick before rushing mid and straight in Vortex's sights. Game 5 then saw MarkyB lose a 3-vs-1 by not keeping eyes on his teammates flanks. MarkyB closed Round 3 Uplink with an 18/27 KD.
Some good things in loss
May 5, 2017
MarkyB was not all bad, but Millenium was easily handled 3-1 by eUnited to open Day 3 of the Global Pro League's Group Yellow play.
ANALYSIS
MarkyB had some nice moments, but overall was not good as Millenium were beaten rather easily. He posted 21 kills in Round 1 Hardpoint, but Millenium as a whole had huge problems trying to get into the objective -- eUnited lived there and took the round. He secured their only game win in Round 2 Search & Destroy, getting the final kill in Game 4. Otherwise, they had no answers for eUnited. They absolutely crushed Round 3 Uplink, and MarkyB played a key role in that. He had 24 kills and two throw-ins that helped make the round a victory. He was one of the team's leading members in Round 4 Hardpoint, earning 29 kills and a team-leading 1:19 on the objective, which included a big push after Prestinni got eUnited to a huge start. That got them back into the match, and it was close until the very end.
