Rejoining Mindfreak
September 28, 2018
Excite will sign with Mindfreak, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Excite previously played for Mindfreak during the 2016-17 season before leaving due to team chemistry issues. He'll join Louqa as the two new additions for the organization, with Fighta, BuZZo and Shockz all re-signing after a successful Call of Duty: World War II competitive season.
Leaving Mindfreak
September 26, 2018
Denz will leave Mindfreak, the organization confirmed early Wednesday morning.
ANALYSIS
Mindfreak seemed poised to leave at least one of its vaunted players with region locks falling to the wayside for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. It seems more than likely that Denz will leave for a significantly more prominent organization, but details of said move haven't been confirmed as of yet.
Newest acquisition for Mindfreak
September 18, 2018
Louqa has signed with Mindfreak, the organization confirmed on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
This easily represents the highest competitive point for the 18-year-old slayer, as Louqa had previously played for a number of amateur organizations in the ANZ region. It remains to be seen if the newest member of Mindfreak is a replacement for one of their previous players, or an addition to the roster as professional Call of Duty is all but guaranteed to have five-man rosters to open the year. Shockz and Fighta have already re-signed with the organization, meaning there could potentially be two spots available on Mindfreak's roster to begin the new competitive season.
Coming back to Mindfreak
September 18, 2018
Fighta has re-signed with Mindfreak to start the Black Ops 4 competitive season.
ANALYSIS
Mindfreak failed to make it out of pool play at the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships and Fighta's play likely played a part in their disappointing results, as the slayer finished with a team-low cumulative KD of 0.89. Essentially the main objective player for the team, Fighta's role can't strictly be highlighted by his KD however, which is why Mindfreak chose to bring him back for another season. With rumors that regional roster locks may be a thing of the past, there's an opportunity for the organization to acquire an up-and-coming player from North America to round out their roster if they're willing to pony up the price.
Re-signs with Mindfreak
September 18, 2018
According to COD Gamepedia, Shockz has re-signed with Mindfreak for the 2019-2020 competitive season.
ANALYSIS
Shockz finished the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships with a 0.99 cumulative KD across 11 maps, with his best mark predictably coming in Capture the Flag, where he finished with a 1.05 KD. The Australian player is set to play another season with the premiere regional team, but with regional locks seemingly falling to the wayside and the potential for five-man rosters all but inevitably, it'll be interesting to see whether Mindfreak choose to splurge on an up-and-coming North American player to round out their roster.

Call of Duty
Qualifies for 2017 CoD Champs
July 14, 2017
Mindfreak Black qualified for CoD Champs by advancing through the loser's bracket of the APAC Last Chance Qualifier.
ANALYSIS
Mindfreak Black was long expected to earn one of the three APAC spots for CoD Champs, but the controversy surrounding the club was whether the organization would be allowed to have two different teams compete at the tournament. It appears as though that will be the case, meaning the squad consisting of Hopey, Zepa, Setzyy and Swiftaz0r will stay under the Mindfreak brand for now.
