Doug ‘Censor’ Martin just recently retired from competitive Call of Duty (again) and in a video on his YouTube channel recounted his favorite moment in his CoD career.
In arguably his best run as a pro for FaZe Clan in 2014 and 2015, Censor was one of the key pieces of a couple huge wins for FaZe.
According to Censor, his favorite moment during his entire career came during this stretch at MLG’s Columbus Open in 2014 on a FaZe roster with Aches, Apathy, and SlasheR.
Coming from the loser’s bracket, FaZe had their backs against the wall, game after game. They were coming off elimination games against Denial (3-2), Team Kaliber (3-1), and Prophecy NA (3-2), when they had to pull off a bracket reset against OpTic gaming.
OpTic was just beginning the dominant stretch that would make them the face of competitive Call of Duty and was on fire in Columbus with three straight 3-0 victories to place them in the finals.
After a bracket reset, FaZe and OpTic had split the first four modes and had one Search and Destroy game for the Columbus championship. Enter Censor:
Both teams had three players left after a Crimsix and SlasheR trade. OpTic’s Formal appeared to have the jump on Censor but he turned it around and secured the kill on Formal then immediately followed up with another kill on Scump, all but sealing the championship for FaZe.
Censor went to plant the bomb and Nadeshot picked him off but had given up his position and Apathy and Aches were able to easily win the ensuing 1v2, giving this FaZe Clan roster its first and only major victory.
