Nobody quite knew what to expect from the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League, and it appears some players, such as Doug ‘Censor’ Martin, didn’t even know what they were signing up for, either.

Censor is a Call of Duty veteran and currently a substitute for the New York Subliners, and he sat down with us to talk about some of his grievances with the way the league currently works and the position he has found himself in.

“If I’m a substitute on a pro team there is going to be some benefits from it,” he thought but, unfortunately, it seemed some things weren’t clear. “I’m pretty sure that our owner wants to make sure he gets what he can out of me. I wouldn’t want to spend $50,000 just to pay a guy for no reason.”

The main problem Censor had with the situation he was in was that he could not get any significant practice. He would not get picked for tens and he also was not allowed to compete with other teams’ substitutes, essentially being relegated to never getting the chance to prove himself.

Nonetheless, Censor insists he has absolutely no intention of stopping competing any time soon. “I want to be a competitor forever,” he said. “I want to play until I can never play again and see how far I can take this scene, kind of like how Tom Brady and Lebron James are doing.”

So what’s next for Censor? He plans on taking to Challengers, and maybe we’ll see him become a pro once again.

Tensions rise as iFerg challenges Dr Disrespect to $100K CoD Mobile 1v1

Dr Disrespect’s drama with mobile gamers has ramped up, as a Call of Duty: Mobile player, Luke ‘iFerg’ Fergie, has challenged the “Two-Time” to a high-stakes 1v1 following the former’s comments on his community.

As has been previously reported, Dr Disrespect, no stranger to stirring the pot, got under the mobile gaming community’s skin by roasting their hobby and, for some, their livelihood. In a spicy tweet, the Two-Time broke down his absurd PC setup to try and contrast how insignificant gaming on mobile is.

After citing his “three state-of-the-art 1ms speed color-calibrated monitors” and “mouse that weighs literally nothing,” the Doc dropped an exclamation point by mentioning his $200,000 setup’s dollar figure. Then, he asked how anyone has “the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

That not-so-subtle jab at the rapidly growing community appears to have been taken seriously, as iFerg challenged Doc to a 1v1 on CoD Mobile for $100,000 (or, more appropriately, half of the price of the aforementioned PC setup). And that challenge has grown into a movement, causing some frustration to the Two-Time on his stream.

Just a day after trolling the masses of mobile enthusiasts, Doc’s stream was hit with an incessant spree of commenters demanding that he “1v1 ferg” in chat. Seemingly in response to that wave of comments, Dr Disrespect’s temper seemed to flare up: “Now you guys are starting to piss me off. I was in a good mood, I really was.”

Sharing that clip on Twitter, iFerg proceeded to comment that “members-only chat had to be enabled” while asking a simple, albeit pointed question: “What’s the problem, Doc, Mobile players getting the better of you?”

While the Two-Time has yet to respond, iFerg and the mobile gaming community are most certainly not letting up. The troll must have hit a sore spot because the CoD Mobile player has continued to lay out rules for the challenge.

Originally specifying that Doc would get to duel on his expensive PC while iFerg would play on his mobile device, the challenger continued in a Twitter reply to explain that the challenge would be played without any use of aim assist.

While Doc’s original comments were likely in jest and to provoke some sort of reaction, he may have gotten more than he bargained for. Now one simply has to wonder if the gaming community will get to watch one of these confident gamers lose $100,000.
