CoD Pro SpaceLy Hits Out at Bloomberg for Cutting Footage in Video About His Time in Ghost Gaming

Former Ghost Gaming player Michael “SpaceLy” Schamle was recently featured in a short documentary episode about the “Glamorous life of a Pro Gamer”, as part of Bloomberg’s ‘Next Jobs’ series.

The piece focused mainly on SpaceLy, his early career all the way to his ascendence to the pro level, and living in the plush LA mansion put on by his former employers.

SpaceLy was released from the roster after they missed out on Stage One of the CWL Pro League, and a number of poor placings at open events.

Now playing for Elevate as well as performing an analyst role with Luminosity Gaming, the documentary episode has just been released, and SpaceLy was not entirely happy with the final product.

His issue was mainly with the latter section of the episode, which focuses on his release from the team.

SpaceLy claims that he spoke for over an hour with the producers, discussing the reasons he was released, including not wanting to play with other members of the team.

In post-production the producers cut this section, suggests SpaceLy, meaning it doesn’t tell the accurate story of his release from the organization.

The other players, with the exception of Andres “Lacefield” Lacefield, have all now been released from the Ghost roster too, which now features Chris “Parasite” Duarte, Adam “GodRx” Brown and Casey “Pandur” Romaro.

The episode is a good insight into how the previous team trained and lived together, but SpaceLy wasn’t entirely pleased after they omitted a large section about why he was dropped.

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.”
