Doug ‘Censor’ Martin announced his retirement on October 13th and received support from a couple fellow pros, but not everyone was so encouraging.
Censor’s crowning achievement is still his win at the 2011 MLG National Championship while playing for Q.NT but he also had a great run with many notable victories playing for FaZe in 2014 and 2015.
Since then, his career has been tumultuous as he hopped teams often. His final team, CompLexity, was the eighth he has played for after leaving FaZe Clan back in 2015.
This isn’t the first time Censor has retired, as he originally retired during the Black Ops 3 season. He came out of retirement for WWII and bounced around before landing on CompLexity to finish out the season.
In response to his retirement video, fellow pros Apathy and SlasheR wished him the best in his future endeavors.
Its been a pleasure teaming with you and having all the moments we had. We both wanted to succeed and we basically broke through the barrier and came up together. But dont worry Doug we are still going to be playing together 😁— Apathy NV (@Apathy_BZ) October 14, 2018
Damn sad to see you go my bro but I know you are gonna kill it with whatever you do!! GL— 100T SlasheR (@SlasheR_AL) October 14, 2018
However, not all the responses were positive.
Below the pros was a response calling Censor a “quitter” and the engagement on that tweet showed the opinion was shared by many.
Dude this is exactly why I've not been supporting you for the longest. You never finish anything you start. You give up consistently on anything that doesn't have instant validation for you. You're supposed to be an inspiration for young kids man, act like one, don't be a quitter— Jay Uzumaki (@CreativeJay) October 13, 2018
Many of the responses centered on his ex-girlfriend Yanet Garcia, who he reportedly broke up with to spend more time on competitive CoD.
Garcia became an internet celebrity through a couple different moments but a video from Ozzy Man Reviews that's been viewed over 17 million times may have been her springboard into her title as the "hottest weathergirl."
