StuDyy Returns to the compLexity Gaming Call of Duty Team In a New Role

Jeremy ‘StuDyy’ Astacio has returned to the compLexity Gaming Call of Duty team after losing his spot on the team in April, but this time he’ll be taking on a completely different role.

StuDyy burst onto the competitive Call of Duty scene during the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 season but the following year was when he saw the most success.

Starting the Call of Duty: Ghosts season with Team JusTus and Curse New York, StuDyy was quick to impress and soon got the opportunity to join Team Envy along with legends like Joey ‘MerK’ Deluca and Raymond ‘Rambo’ Lussier.

The talented youngster helped Envy to secure a second place finish at the 2014 Call of Duty Championship and numerous other top four placements before finally switching to Denial and helping them win UMG Dallas towards the end of the series.

Advanced Warfare was a difficult year and, despite a slight resurgence during the Black Ops 3 season, results have been hard to come by ever since, including on Call of Duty: WWII.

StuDyy was eventually dropped by compLexity Gaming in April of 2018 following run of poor events but on June 12th it was announced that he is returning to the team, but not as a player – the 23 year old will now be focusing his efforts on helping coL as an analyst:

StuDyy fans will be happy to hear that he is remaining a part of the competitive Call of Duty scene and his first job as analyst will be to help the team get ready for CWL Anaheim, which begins on June 15th.

The compLexity Call of Duty team has been drawn in Pool D along with OpTic Gaming, Team Envy, and Splyce, so the players will need to be on their A game.

Presumably StuDyy will also be helping the team through the remainder of Stage 2 of the CWL Pro League and the World Championship but it is currently uncertain whether he will be travelling with the team to events or working remotely.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
