Jeremy ‘StuDyy’ Astacio has officially announced his retirement from professional Call of Duty, and revealed what the future holds for him.

At 23 years of age, StuDyy is a veteran of the Call of Duty scene, breaking into the top tier of the esport back in 2014 playing for teams like Curse NY, JusTus and Team Envy.

It was in 2014 that Astacio won his first championship, winning UMG Dallas as part of a Denial Esports team that included current FaZe Clan star Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto.

StuDyy competed for legendary organizations like Team Envy and Luminosity.

Astacio hasn’t played competitively in Call of Duty since April 2018, when his compLexity squad finished top 28 at the CWL Birmingham Open.

Now, StuDyy has tweeted that he is officially retiring from competing, and has explained that a new job position with the CWL is the reason he is stepping away.

“After all these years competing, I’m finally putting down the sticks,” wrote the American. “I want to think everyone who has supported me on my competitive career. With that being said, I will be taking my talents to the analysts desk for the Call of Duty World League.”

StuDyy is no stranger to being behind the desk, as he previously fulfilled the role of Pro Player analyst at the CWL Las Vegas Open back in December.

Many of Astacio’s peers have wished him the best as he moves on to the next chapter of his career, including former teammate Brandon ‘Nelson’ McKinney, who tweeted that he was “glad to be his last teammate ever, and was so bad that [StuDyy] had to go cast.”


Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
