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 a 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.
Starts well before faltering
August 16, 2018
Shockz had a respectable performance during Mindfreak's 3-1 loss against Red Reserve on Day 1 of CWL Champs.
ANALYSIS
Shockz got off to a nice start, posting a 24/21 KD in the opening Hardpoint, but the rest of his team has no presence on the map whatsoever and that led to a 250-77 loss in the round. That round ended up setting the tone for most of the series as Mindfreak couldn't seem to get themselves out of the hole for very long at any point. Even though they won Capture the Flag, it was a narrow win and did nothing to stem the tide as Red Reserve fired right back for another win in Round 4 Hardpoint to take the series. The team will need to get back on track before facing Ghost Gaming on Thursday to avoid an early elimination.
Subpar performance in loss
August 16, 2018
Fighta struggled during a 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Day 1 of CWL Champs.
ANALYSIS
Fighta opened with a 19/27 KD in the opening Hardpoint and that ended up being a sign of things to come. While he would get himself together a bit with some respectable performance in later rounds, it wasn't consistent enough to get the win for his team. Sure, he tallied a 38/30 KD in Capture the Flag, which led to a 3-2 win for Mindfreak, but that was his only saving grace in this series. The rest of the time, they were simply unable to get anything going and they were handed a lopsided 3-1 loss because of it.

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.
