Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss is a legendary name in the world of Call of Duty esports, and the Black Ops 2 World Champion has explained why he isn’t competing in the Black Ops 4 competitive season.

Sloss became a Call of Duty World Champion back in 2013 as part of Fariko Impact, beating out Team Envy to secure victory in the first event under the Call of Duty Championship banner.

Since leaving OpTic Nation back in 2015, KiLLa has struggled to find a spot on a top professional team in the scene, playing mostly with amature players throughout World War 2 and into Black Ops 4.

On the February 25 edition of OpTic CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez’s Eavesdrop podcast, Sloss went into detail about why he has moved away from competing in Black Ops 4.

“I wouldn’t compete if I thought I wasn’t good enough,” KiLLa told H3CZ. “I can still compete. I competed at the first event and my teammate didn’t show up. I was finishing top eight in 2Ks at the start of the year, that’s pro level.”

“I don’t even get to play with the people I was playing with when I was doing well, I’m teaming with amatures now. I’m really not given the same opportunity that I was to begin with. I’m playing with players who have never even placed top 16. How am I going to lie to myself and say that somehow, magically, I’m going to do something?”

Sloss is still hopeful that he will be able to make a return to the top echelon of Call of Duty esports in the future, but admits that he may soon turn his complete attention to streaming and entertaining.

With KiLLa currently not signed to a CWL Pro League team, the next time we could see him in action is at CWL Fort Worth on March 15, should he find a squad.
