CompLexity Gaming Call of Duty pro Doug “Censor” Martin has opened up about a number of topics covering CoD esports, Fortnite and his personal life.

Censor stepped away from competing in 2016, pursuing his personal ventures as YouTuber, where he amassed himself over two and half million subscribers.

But with the release of Call of Duty: WWII, Censor got the itch to compete once again, and invested heavily with his own money in order to get back into the scene with a competitive roster.

Since then, his dedication and skills in game have elevated his stock amongst his fellow players and fans, with some decent LAN performances, and has now found his way onto a CWL Pro League team with the new coL roster.

He has made it very clear on a number of occasions that his number one goal is to win the Call of Duty: World Championship – and in his Ask Me Anything (AMA) video for CompLexity, says he may even considering retiring if he manages it.

He discusses the possibility of leaving CoD to aspire in Fortnite professionally, following the announcement of $100 million developer funding in prize pools for the battle royale game.

“The only way I could see myself leaving Call of Duty is for two reasons; one, if I won a world championship, or two, if Call of Duty completely died out.

Fortnite has a crazy prize pool, it’s a lot of fun, but I like to stick with what I’m good at. I love Call of Duty, it’s something I’ve known for a very long time and I want to play as long as I possibly can.”

He also revealed that he reckons Luminosity’s Johnathon “John” Perez is the best Player in CoD: WWII currently.

“Currently, I would probably say John is the best player in Call of Duty, right now, today.

I think he’s the best because he’s an insanely talented player and he has the right work ethic.”

And finally, he discussed the team’s ambitions for the upcoming CWL Anaheim event, taking place June 15th.

“We’re really excited, Anaheim is one of the biggest events of they year and I think our team has tonne of potential. I want to accomplish winning a championship alongside my teammates so the goal for us is winning every event we can.”

Black Ops Cold War leaks reveal League Play mode returning

Reputable Call of Duty leaker ‘TheMW2Ghost’ has claimed that an in-game challenge in Black Ops Cold War shows that League Play will make a long-awaited return when the full game drops in November. 

Despite it’s immense popularity in Black Ops 2, League Play has not yet returned in a Call of Duty game. While we’ve seen many Ranked modes – Black Ops 3’s Arena or Black Ops 4’s World League Play – the fan-favorite competitive mode has not featured in some games, including 2019’s Modern Warfare.

However, recent leaks from TheMW2Ghost suggest that an in-game challenge, similar to the one that was completed on October 17 to earn an extra day of the open Beta, will make way to reveal a League Play mode in the full game.

Many consider Black Ops II League Play to be the best Ranked mode in Call of Duty history.

The leaker claimed that an in-game challenge, found in the files of Black Ops Cold War, is heavily indicative of a League Play mode featuring, either at launch or as post-launch content.

“There’s a Challenge in Black Ops Cold War which is for League Play,” they tweeted. “WTF, some weird/cool challenges for Zombies too.” 

While this is not confirmed – or even unlocked – at the time of writing, the very reference to League Play in the game’s files is very good news for fans of the competitive mode.

It’s worth encouraging a degree of caution though. Past Call of Duty games have had Ranked modes confirmed as coming post-launch, only for the mode to never materialise. A number of CoD games, such as 2019’s Modern Warfare, have settled for a Call of Duty League playlist, rather than a fully fledged Ranked mode.

Back in early October, David Vonderhaar was asked about the possibility of a Ranked Play mode. He responded: “Have you seen a Black Ops game without a competitive agenda?”

What League Play would mean for SBMM is also up in the air. Many have criticized the seemingly high levels of skill-based matchmaking in the Beta, but believe a Ranked playlist could mean that SBMM is reduced in public matches. We’ll have to wait and see on all fronts.
