In the YouTube video below, Censor walks into the frame wearing a letterman’s jacket. In the background are the tops of skyscrapers; and Censor begins with, “Oh hey, I didn’t see you there! What’s up guys?” before pointing to the various patches on his jacket. The name “Censor” labels the right side of his chest, the Andbox logo adorns the left, and on his arm is a “NY” patch.
“Oh, baby! I’m excited for this one guys!” he exclaimed. “Today I’m proud to announce that I have joined the Andbox family and Call of Duty New York.”
Censor went on to explain that he will be joining Call of Duty New York as a substitute player. In the Call of Duty League, matches will be 5v5, but each team can have up to five substitutes that can enter the match between maps.
There will be plenty of opportunities for Censor to compete alongside his teammates, who as of today include Thomas “ZooMaa” Paparatto, Donovan “Temp” Laroda, Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi, Trei “Zer0” Morris, and Dillon “Attach” Price. The Call of Duty NYC organization will be coached by John “Revan” Boble.
After the announcement, Censor told G FUEL how excited he was to join the New York franchise. “We want to be the biggest, coolest, and best team in the world,” he said. “We want to start a movement. I’m ready for the grind.”
New York is the perfect fit for Censor, who resides on Long Island. “New York is my home. I love being here and the people are great,” Censor explained.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches next week Friday, October 25th, and Censor is just as excited as the rest of the Call of Duty fan base. He got a taste of the game in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta test last month but prefers his first experience with a new game to be on the night of the full release.
“I want to start day one fresh,” Censor said. “It’s had a lot of good publicity, but I’ve only had a sample. I think the maps look good but they could be more vibrant. It has good time-to-kill and I like the map layouts.”
Censor says his New York team is going to work really hard on the new game and focus on the process without worrying too much about championships. He says his team is full of talent, drive, and skill, which happen to be the prime ingredients for winning championships in competitive Call of Duty.
Censor has been playing Call of Duty competitively for over a decade but has been semi-retired for the past year. He last competed professionally at the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship where he placed top 16 with Complexity.
In the meantime, Censor kept himself busy and continued growing his YouTube audience, which now sits at a massive 2.6 million subscribers. Censor’s YouTube features all aspects of his life, which include gaming, fitness, and relationships. Right up until announcing his new role with Call of Duty New York, Censor was a member of FaZe Clan.
Years of experience balancing competitive gaming and entertaining has given Censor the ability to manage his time efficiently. He gave some advice to the rest of us, saying, “You have to be disciplined with what you want to do. Have the right mindset and be disciplined with your time. I changed the way I thought.”
In the goodbye video below, Censor explained how FaZe Clan took him in and taught him all he needed to know about branding and making content. But his ultimate goal is to be a professional gamer and leaving FaZe signals the next stage of his career as he joins Call of Duty New York.
“Now it’s time for me to move on to my next chapter,” he said.
