Released from compLexity Gaming
October 4, 2018
Censor has been released from compLexity Gaming, the organization confirmed on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The good news is that compLexity Gaming is still expected to stay in the competitive CoD space, but they appear to be pivoting in a different direction for their roster after a 13th-16th place finish at the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships. Censor finished with a team-low 0.81 KD at the aforementioned tournament, and even despite his resilient return to the competitive CoD sphere during Call of Duty: World War II he was never regarded as a strong slayer. Censor's social media presence alone should garner interest from an organization hungry to make a name for itself, but in the unlikely event that no team comes for his services, there is always the potential for Censor to field his own competitive lineup similar to what he did to begin the season last year. Were he to stick with Ricky and Blazt, the lineup would have a spot guaranteed in the pools at CWL Las Vegas to start Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Best round in only win
August 15, 2018
Censor's best round was their only win in the 3-1 loss to FaZe Clan on Day 1 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
Censor's best round was in their round win, Round 3 Capture the Flag. He had a lobby-leading 23 kills, and added a lobby-leading two flag caps as well. He was everywhere, helping push the offense and stabilize the defense in the win. It was a great all-around performance. The rest of his performance fell back into a support-role. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him lap up objective time right from the get-go, but he had some struggles in the slaying area. It was the same in Round 4 Hardpoint, and he had a background role in the Round 2 Search & Destroy loss.
Tries to overpower opponent
July 12, 2018
Censor struggled to stabilize in a 3-1 loss to UNILAD Esports on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Censor may have been hot off of a 3-0 over Rise Nation yesterday, but he failed to carry his momentum into this series. UNILAD eSports' sheer aggression caught both Censor and compLexity Gaming off-guard as the team struggled to hold spawns against a streaking opponent. This wasn't helped by Censor's weak slaying. Both Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint turned tragic as Censor failed to keep his head above water, failing to keep his KD above a double negative. While he was able to even out in Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag, Censor's slaying still wasn't up to par with the rest of his team.
One good round in close loss
July 12, 2018
Censor really struggled outside of the final round of the 3-2 loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 2, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Censor saved the best for last in this loss, putting in an absolutely excellent Round 5 Search & Destroy performance. They ended up losing in 10 games, mostly because the depth of OpTic Gaming was just a little better, but Censor put up a valiant effort. Outside of that, Censor did not do much. He was an inconsistent background player in their Round 2 Search & Destroy loss, and simply struggled in each of their respawn rounds. The most kills he had in any respawn rounds was 17 (Round 4 Hardpoint), and he had a combined 48/83 in those three rounds. All in all, he simply could not slay will OpTic Gaming in this loss.
Finds a comfortable pace
July 12, 2018
Censor picked up his pace in a 3-0 sweep of Rise Nation on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
After a lackluster start in this division, Censor has finally found his stride in a shocking sweep of Rise Nation. This was thanks to the excellent work of both Dashy and Blazt as Censor supporting their slaying through out the series. Sticking to the role of SMG, Censor was able to help scout out off-lanes and rotations, calling targets for both Dashy and Blazt. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, for example, Censor was able to get an early flag capture in the first half of overtime thanks to his fast pace, quickly finding a hole in Rise Nation's defense before they had time to set up.
Falls behind his streaking team
July 11, 2018
Censor lagged behind his own team in a 3-1 win against Tainted Minds on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Censor returned with fire in his eyes, but he failed to capitalize on his determination. Instead, it was up to the rest of his team to shore up his weak slaying. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Censor could barely break a double negative KD as he struggled to win duels in lane. This limp score was made all the worse by the close 250-221 loss, indicating the round couldn't been won if Censor stepped up his gunplay. Despite his poor playing, compLexity Gaming was still able to win the series thanks to the rest of the team.
Decent in overwhelming series
June 7, 2018
Censor gave a decent performance against Luminosity Gaming in a 3-0 loss on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
After beating eUnited on Wednesday, Censor and compLexity seemed to be rising up. Luminosity Gaming proved otherwise. Censor wasn't able to mount much against his opponents this series, struggling to even keep up with them. Censor was able to land a solid, if underwhelming, KD in this series, but his average score hurt the team as his performance turned out to be the best of his team. This complicated most of complexity's tactics as only Censor could reliably land shots with a lackluster KD. Luminosity was easily able to bully Censor around the map, taking spawns and objectives with ease.
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.
