Biography[]

World War II[]

Chain was well known in the EU Search and Destroy scene and named "Chall to Chain" for his time on Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare, at the start of the new season, he decided to try and compete in variant. Chain's teams struggled at first unable to make it past top 16s in EU MLG 2Ks constantly changing teams and playing with other EU AMs such as Creza, Subsist, Braaain, and a few more. He landed on a team with Weeman and the veterans ShAnE and Watson, and this team placed sixth in the CWL UK National Circuit Stage 1. At his first LAN event, Chain teamed with ShAnE, Dominate, and Bidz for the CWL Birmingham Open, but the team was unable to make it out of the open bracket with a poor top 40 placement. This team then placed seventh in the CWL UK National Circuit Stage 2 and had to play in the CWL UK National Circuit Stage 2 Relegation where they managed qualified for Stage 3 after replacing Dominate and Bidz and picking back up Weeman and Watson. In the CWL UK National Circuit Stage 3 the team placed fifth, which was the highest thus far. Chain's talent was starting to get noticed and it landed it on a team with SamB, Maple, and the veteran Tommey. Chain saw his highest placements with this new team as they placed top 4 in their first EU MLG 2k and placed top 4 in the CWL UK National Circuit Stage 4. Seeing the potential in this team, Team Vitality picked them up, and after a poor top 16 in an EU MLG 2K, SamB was dropped for the veteran Belgian AM Denza. With Denza, Team Vitality managed to qualify for CWL Champs only dropping one map at the CWL Championship LCQ. At the CWL Championship, Team Vitality shocked many by beating Echo Fox and making it out of pools. In bracket play, Team Vitality lost to Champs winners Evil Geniuses in the first round of the winners bracket, but managed to reverse sweep Lethal Gaming in a close series before losing to Elevate for a surprising top 12 placement.

Black Ops 4[]

Despite making a decent Champs run, the team split up and Chain and Maple joined a team with Cammy, Defrag, and SunnyB to start the new game cycle. This team was looking decently online placing top 4 in EU MLG 2Ks and Chain was still showing off his snd prowess winning an online 3v3 snd tourney with Nastie and Rizl. Chain, Maple, and the boys were then picked up by Fact Revolution to compete at the CWL Las Vegas Open. At Vegas, the team fell just shy of making it out of the open bracket with a top 28 placement, but that was good enough to qualify for the CWL Pro League Qualifier. Ahead of the qualifier, the team placed top 4 in a few more EU MLG 2ks and Chain won another 3v3 snd tourney. At the CWL Pro League Qualifier, Fact Revolution got off to a hot start in their pool with a 3-1 start, but they finished 3-3 and would have to play in bracket play where they lost in a game 5 to Excelerate Gaming and lost to Red Reserve meaning they missed out on qualifying for the CWL Pro League. Chain then stuck to online tournaments until ending up on Lightning Pandas to team with Dqvee, Peatie, Maple, Hawqeh. This team was picked up by Alliance and added Falcore as a coach to compete at the CWL London Open where they placed a disappointing top 12. Chain then went back to online tournaments and due to his snd prowess and perceived gun skill, he was picked up on The Bhoys to team with Bance, Seany, Nastie, and QwiKeR. This team lost to fellow EU AMs Team WaR in two close game 5 series in the CWL UK Amateur Finals Qualifier. However, at the actual CWL Amateur Finals, The Bhoys got their revenge beating Team WaR in another two close game 5 series in the grand finals to take home Chain's highest prize money to date.

Trivia[]

  • Chain's favorite Call of Duty title is Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
