FaZe Clan CoD confirm former player as their new fifth for the Black Ops 4 season

North American esports organization FaZe Clan have called upon a former player to complete their Call of Duty team for the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.

Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni, who was most recently with OpTic Gaming, has joined the FaZe roster that includes Thomas ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto, Dillon ‘Attach’ Price, James ‘Replays’ Crowder and Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner – one of the few rosters in competitive CoD that had not made any changes since forming at the start of the WWII season. 

This roster move was announced on October 8 via a post on the FaZe Clan official Twitter page, which also included a highlight montage of Methodz’s best plays from this past season.

“I’m beyond excited to be home,” Methodz tweeted after the news had broken. 

Having been competing in Call of Duty since 2012, Methodz enjoyed two separate stints with FaZe Clan during 2013 and 2014. 

His best placing during that time came at the MLG Spring Championship 2013, where he, Heist, Replays, and MBoZe placed 5-6th, winning $2,300.

Methodz played for several teams during the WWII season, including Next Threat, Rise Nation, and Team Kaliber, before finishing out the season with OpTic Gaming.

However, after OpTic’s disastrous placing at the 2018 CWL Championship, it was clear that Methodz was on his way out as the team began its major revamp.

His move to FaZe does not come as a major surprise, especially since Dexerto had reported the move several days prior, based on the reports of several reliable sources.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
