Team Kaliber’s Kenny Denies Roster Rumors, Accuses Censor of Leaking Information On Purpose

Team Kaliber star Kenny “Kenny” Williams has spoken out on the recent leaks and rumors that his Call of Duty roster was splitting.

The leaks and behind the scenes knowledge have been coming thick and fast in this final weekend of rostermania, before roster lock on May 7th.

In addition to OpTic Gaming, Luminosity and FaZe Clan leaks which emerged from conversations unwittingly recorded on stream, there was also a suggestion that Team Kaliber had split.

The rumor was born after CompLexity player Doug “Censor” Martin entered a call which he apparently did not know was audible on Steve “Mochila” Canle’s stream, and stated “tK’s not scrimming anymore, they broke up.”

It is now looking likely that tK player Anthony “Methodz” Zinni will join OpTic Gaming, but Kenny has shut down the suggestion that the rest of the Team Kaliber squad will split.

And that is not all, as he in fact accuses Censor of deliberately leaking tK had split with full knowledge that his voice was on stream.

Basically what happened, was that Fero and [Accuracy] got into an argument in the mumble, and we said we weren’t scrimming anymore because of that. And then [Censor] went and said that [inaudible].

Fero did not leave no.

Yeah, [Censor] 100% did it on purpose. It seemed like he did, I dunno.

 When asked if other leaks involving OpTic Gaming and FaZe Clan which Censor was also – at least partly – responsible for, Kenny explained that he didn’t think so.

It was certainly odd that Censor mentioned Team Kaliber not scrimming rather out of the blue, and added that they had split up.

You can watch the original comment made on Mochila’s stream below, and decide for yourself if Censor purposefully leaked the (albeit false) information.

So for now, it looks as though the core three of Kenny, Maurice “Fero” Henriquez and Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi remain. 

The rumor currently is that former Evil Geniuses and current Lightning Pandas player Ian “Enable” Wyatt will take Methodz’ spot, once his move to OpTic is complete.

Empire continue championship form, FaZe (and Surge) falter

The Dallas Empire were the best Call of Duty team in 2020 and that form has lasted into 2021. The day started with 2020 MVP Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro racking up 35 kills and just 17 deaths with almost two minutes of hill time on Map 1, but then it became the Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal show as the upsurging player hit star form with some huge clutches.

With Empire cleaning up their former teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks’ New York Subliners, the day moved on with two tight Map 5’s. First, Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov and the Los Angeles Guerrillas outdueled a revamped Seattle Surge 3-2 and then, in a twist few saw coming, the Florida Mutineers came back against the Atlanta FaZe.

As Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno returned to the form that earned him MVP candidacy in 2020, the Mutineers flew back from a 2-1 deficit and eventually clinched the 3-2 victory against a FaZe team who stood near the top of most standings for this season.
