North American esports organization Luminosity Gaming have revealed the fifth member of the Call of Duty team for the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.

Longtime competitor Nicholas ‘Classic’ DiCostanzo has officially joined LG, completing their five-man roster that also features Josiah ‘Slacked’ Berry, Johnathan ‘John’ Perez, Mathew ‘FormaL’ Piper, and Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman.

The news of the roster move was announced via a post on LG’s official Twitter page, confirming the heavy rumors, leaks, and speculation that had been swirling around over the past two weeks.

This is Classic’s second stint with LG after he competed for them during the entire IW season, during which they claimed victory at CWL Anaheim 2017.

Classic then spent the entire WWII season with Team EnVy, but was dropped after a difficult and underwhelming season. He now joins LG in replacement of Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan, who had a messy departure from the org on his way to joining eUnited.

LG had five top-five finishes at major events this past season, but was only able to secure victory at CWL Birmingham. They’ll hope that bringing back their former player will be what takes the team over the top. 

Classic’s move to LG doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Aside from the fact that most of the rumors hinted at him being JKap’s replacement, 100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag accidentally revealed the move while talking about Rostermania.

Furthermore, for the past few days, a command in Gunless’ Twitch chat had Classic listed as their fifth.

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.”
