Lands in Stage 2 by joining compLexity Gaming
April 13, 2018
Censor will team with compLexity Gaming heading into the CWL Seattle Open and has officially earned a spot for Stage 2 of the CWL Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Friday's announcement means that Censor will be on his sixth new team this competitive year, but there's reason to believe this might be his last given he's somehow managed to qualify for Stage 2 of the CWL Global Pro League by virtue of teaming with former eRa Eternity slayers Ricky and Blazt. While you could question the way in which Censor made it into the Pro League, you certainly can't question his determination, as the longtime FaZe Clan slayer was one of a number of returning players to enter the competitive landscape following the reintroduction of boots-on-the-ground, but the only one still left standing. Given Censor's near limitless YouTube presence, they'll be plenty of eyes on this new compLexity Gaming team moving forward, but unless he and Ricky can drastically improve their play, the roster figures to be one of the worst Pro League teams.
A lot of positives in loss
April 2, 2018
Censor had a lot of individual positives to take away from the 3-2 loss to Team EnVyUs that eliminated Lightning Pandaz from CWL Birmingham on Day 3.
ANALYSIS
Censor had quite a few strong rounds in this matchup. Round 2 Search & Destroy was one of them, though he was hardly alone there - they won the round 6-0, and it takes a strong team effort to do that. He was not in the spotlight of that round, but he patiently stayed back and provided key kills when his teammates needed him to. His patient play continued into Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he picked his spots and was a consistent thorn in Team EnVyUs' side of the entirety of the round. He came second on the team in kills (27) and has his team's only flag cap in regulation. He also was clutch in the round, capitalizing on Royalty's impressive stand to get the kill that officially stopped Team EnVyUs' last push. He was a balanced 28 kill, 1:36 on the objective performer in Round 4 Hardpoint, a round that they just barely lost to Team EnVyUs, 250-238. He struggled a bit in Round 5 Search & Destroy, however, netting five kills in the nine-game round. He was far from bad in the round, but Lightning Pandaz needed just a little bit more to run with Team EnVyUs in the round.
Teaming with Lightning Pandaz
March 15, 2018
Censor will join Lightning Pandaz, the organization relayed on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
It didn't take long for Censor to find a new home, as the former FaZe Clan slayer left Most Wanted just prior to CWL Atlanta, only to find a new organization just a week later. While Censor hasn't exactly regained his championship form since returning to Call of Duty to begin the season, he's one of the more prominent players in the entire competitive scene in terms of social media presence, and will likely create quite a draw for the organization. Given Lightning Pandaz figures to be one of the favorites to join CWL Pro League Stage 2 next month, this has to be considered a fantastic move for Censor, who seemed all but locked out of a Pro League spot after failing to qualify with Enigma6 following a disappointing finish at CWL New Orleans.
Potentially not playing at Atlanta
March 7, 2018
Censor is reportedly not participating at CWL Atlanta, Most Wanted's owner relayed on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Most Wanted appears to be crumbling apart, as Blazt is expected to join eRa Eternity ahead of CWL Atlanta, while Mochila is already announcing his free agency. It's a bizarre sequence of events for Censor following a tumultuous few months in which his Next Threat team failed to win Stage 1 of the CWL National Circuit. As a result, Censor will not take part in the LAN event, and has announced his free agency.
Leaving Next Threat for Most Wanted
February 28, 2018
Censor will join Most Wanted heading into CWL Atlanta, the organization announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Censor will join the rest of his former Next Threat members on Most Wanted heading into the next LAN event, CWL Atlanta. It's a bit of an odd case to see the organization move given Censor has repeatedly went on record about the cost in which he sacrificed to keep Next Threat going. Given the team narrowly failed to win Stage 1 of the CWL Global Circuit, it'll be interesting to see if Censor and company can make more noise at Atlanta.
Reactivates Next Threat organization
January 24, 2018
Censor re-announced Next Threat as an organization, and the new roster will compete in the upcoming CWL North American National Ciruit.
ANALYSIS
After being released from Enigma6 following a failed attempt at qualifying for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League, Censor will go back to the team he formed to begin Call of Duty: World War II. Alongside Nagafen, Blaztful and Mochila, this roster could very well be in contention for a spot in CWL Stage 2 should things align their way.
Not considering retirement
January 18, 2018
Censor is not expected to retire following the team's disappointing finish at CWL New Orleans, in which Enigma6 did not qualify for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Censor's continual involvement in competitive Call of Duty isn't exactly a surprise, given his much publicized return to the scene. However it was confirmed Censor would be leaving Enigma6, who he was forced to join prior to CWL New Orleans in order to try and qualify for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League. Thanks to a disappointing finish in the largest tournament in CWL history, Censor and the rest of the team were narrowly passed by Evil Geniuses in terms of total Pro Points, and thus forced to miss out on the $500,000 multi-week competition. The embattled veteran has went to great lengths to challenge the placement, posting separate videos on his YouTube channel detailing how MLG and Evil Geniuses "cheated" Enigma6 out of the 10th and final North American spot, even going so far as to wire-tap himself in an effort to gain information from a reportedly intoxicated member of Evil Geniuses. The situation hardly bares monitoring, as MLG has already released a statement regarding the incident, but it's an interesting anecdote for a player that has an up-and-down WW2 campaign.
Struggles more often than not
January 12, 2018
Censor had issues running with Rise Nation for most of the 3-1 loss to them on Day 1 of CWL New Orleans. The match was during pool play.
ANALYSIS
Censor had a solid game on the objective in Round 1 Hardpoint, notching nearly 1:45 there, but he really struggled to string kills together against Rise Nation. Most of Enigma6 had the same issue, so Rise Nation eventually ran away with the round after a close beginning to it. He was very good early in Round 2 Search & Destroy, and Enigma6 looked well on their way to a round win. However, Rise Nation, again, had a strong second half to a round to put Enigma6 into a 2-0 hole. They made a game of it after an excellent Round 3 Capture the Flag performance that saw them dominate the second half, winning 7-2. Censor was excellent, netting 19 kills and showing his influence offensively and defensively. Round 4 Hardpoint, however, is going to leave a bad taste in Enigma6's mouth for a long time. They lost 250-35, and as the score suggested, were never even close to competing. It was as bad as a performance as any team will have this year, and Censor is not immune to that.
Signs on with Enigma6 Group
January 3, 2018
Censor will play for Enigma6 Group at CWL New Orleans, the organization confirmed on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
After his former organization, Next Threat, dissolved following CWL Dallas, Censor was left scrambling to find a roster with enough Pro Points to stay in the running for a spot in Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League. That left essentially Enigma6 as the only potential option for Censor to join, thanks in large part to his help in recruiting Blazt from his former teammate, Ricky's, lineup of up-and-coming slayers. It'll be interesting to see how the star streamer assimilates to Enigma6's culture - one largely dominated by another interesting personality in General. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Censor leave the organization following CWL New Orleans, even if the team finishes highly at the LAN event.
Forced to dissolve Next Threat
December 24, 2017
Censor will no longer team with Next Threat as the organization has seen multiple players leave in the past week.
ANALYSIS
Censor's organization, Next Threat, appears to have crumbled as Ricky and others have left for seemingly better options, forcing the veteran to scramble for another team in order to try and make a last-ditch effort for a pool play spot in Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League. Which team Censor ends up joining remains to be seen, but with few potential combinations of players available that have enough Pro Points accumulated, it seems bleak that Censor will battle his way into Stage 1.
Average performance in loss
December 17, 2017
Censor showed some nice movement despite Next Threat taking a 1-3 loss to Luminosity Gaming in the quarterfinals of the Northern Arena Showdown.
ANALYSIS
Censor wasn't terrible by any means in this series, but he simply couldn't bring the thunder to get his team over the Luminosity hump. He had some nice movement around the map in the opening Hardpoint round, but LG simply out-slayed them to walk away with the win. In the final two rounds, though, they had basically no objective control and it contributed heavily to their ultimate demise. Next Threat certainly has some talent, but they've gotta put together some more consistent performances if they want to hang with the best teams during the 2018 season.
Announces new team for 2017-18
November 1, 2017
Censor will compete under the Next Threat banner this season, alongside Ricky, ProoFy and MiRx.
ANALYSIS
A superstar in the competitive scene thanks in large part to his presence as a streamer, Censor has officially returned to the CoD alongside a former world champion in MiRx, and solid players in their own rights in ProoFy and Ricky. While the team doesn't appear to be among the top in North America, much of their success this season will depend on how Censor and ProoFy perform after multiple years away from the competitive grind. If they can affirm their dedication, there's a chance this roster could be among the few that qualify for Stage 1, but much of that depends on how they perform in the open tournaments prior.
Free Agent
Will not return to FaZe Clan, has lineup in place
September 27, 2017
Censor will not be teaming with FaZe Clan, but does have another lineup set for Call of Duty: World War II.
ANALYSIS
The much publicized flirtation with returning to FaZe Clan appears to be over, as the legendary slayer will not be reunited with the organization that helped make him famous. Instead, Censor will join an increasingly long list of teams that are still looking for an organization, as Censor reiterated in his video that he does have a 3/4 of a lineup set for the new year. There's a chance, given his wealth and experience within the scene that Censor could simply create his own organization, similar to Nadeshot's team 100 Thieves, but that still appears to be on the horizon. Regardless, one thing is for certain - Censor is set to return to competitive Call of Duty.
