Former CoD pro Censor reveals why he wouldn’t compete in Fortnite

Former Call of Duty pro Doug ‘Censor’ Martin has revealed why he loves the popularity of Fortnite, but confirmed he never wants to make the switch to the battle royale.

After the success of the Fortnite World Cup showed the entire gaming community the power of the battle royale in a competitive setting, many professional players have been considering making the switch to Epic’s globally-popular shooter.

One veteran gamer that won’t ever be making the switch, however, is Censor, who revealed he loves Call of Duty too much to make the swap. He still has a love for Fortnite though, especially what it has done to boost the gaming community to a new level.

“Fortnite changed gaming forever, Fortnite is freaking amazing,” said Censor in a video dedicated to addressing his thoughts on the battle royale. “Fortnite is life for a lot of people. Look at the thousands of creators making hundreds of thousands every single year.”

“Any kid out there that watches this, and you’re thinking ‘Dude I want to do that,’ go do it! Don’t waste your time. Do it 110%, that’s what I always preach. Who doesn’t want to be a pro gamer making multiple millions of dollars? That’s amazing.”

Epic GamesKyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf is the highest profile earner in Fortnite after winning the World Cup.

Censor compared the boom of the professional and streaming Fortnite scenes to when he first entered CoD competitively. The former FaZe Clan champion began his career during Black Ops in 2011, and found major success during Advanced Warfare.

“I started out in gaming making nothing, I was winning majors making a few thousand dollars. These guys making that in a few hours streaming,” said Censor. “I love seeing these guys grow and try to make careers in gaming.”

MLGCensor retired from the professional Call of Duty scene for the second time in 2018.

Despite the praise, Censor confirmed what everyone already knew suspected: “For me, I don’t enjoy Fornite, Call of Duty is life. Modern Warfare is coming out, franchising is coming, I can’t wait. For anyone out there that loves Fortnite, play Fortnite, enjoy it.

“I still support it, don’t get me wrong. Just personally I loved seasons one to three where I could just hop on, point and shoot, and building something simple. Now it’s all ‘duh duh duh, turbo build, pew pew pew.’ You guys do your thing. I’m staying in Call of Duty.”

Censor is currently a free agent ahead of the new franchised Call of Duty League. He announced his return to the pro scene early last week, after retiring from the scene for the second time in 2018.

CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order early patch notes: Weapons, new map, release date, more

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for the start of Season 1: New Order, which will launch in the last week of January. So, here’s what we know so far in terms of patch notes. 

Even though CoD Mobile has plenty of content in it already, the devs have been rolling out regular updates since launch to keep things fresh. 

These updates are, largely, big new season patches that bring a new theme to the game as well as new characters, new maps, and of course, new equipment like weapons and perks. 

With the first update of 2021, the devs are resetting the counter, so it won’t be Season 14 or Season 15 moving forward. Instead, we’re getting Season 1: New Order, and there are a few flashbacks coming. So, here’s what you need to know.

CoD Mobile takes some of the best parts of previous games and puts them under one umbrella.

CoD Mobile New Order season 14 release date & time

In terms of when the update will be going live, the devs haven’t yet confirmed a date or time, at the time of writing. They’re still dropping clues.

In their January 21 community update, though, they said that the new season will be starting in the last week of the month, with Tuesday, January 26 being used as a date for things potentially kicking off.

Now, that’s not confirmed as we’ve already mentioned, but that day would make sense. It’s also the conclusion of the previous season’s farewell event, so things could easily roll out. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

As for new weapons, again, they’re still being cryptic, but it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out what is being teased.

Two weapons are coming – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

As familiar as they are to longtime CoD fans, these weapons may have their names changed in CoD Mobile. The devs like to have their spin on things, after all.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Rebirth

In terms of a new map, again, that’s been teased by the devs. However, if you’re new to CoD Mobile, you might not instantly know what is being teased.

The teaser does bear a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested that it might be something new altogether. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order will actually be Rebirth, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Rebirth. 

Who is the new character in CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order?

For those fans who like to get a new character at the start of the new season, that tradition should continue here, even with the change to Season 1.

Who will be, though? Well, the devs have teased it being Raul Menendez – who should be a familiar face to Black Ops fans. Though, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet. So, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for bug fixes, weapon nerfs, and buffs, they haven’t been revealed by the devs just yet and should filter out just prior to the start of the new season.

Once they’re here, and we’ve got more confirmed information about Season 1: New Order, we’ll update this post so you won’t miss anything.
