Biography[]

MBoZe first started playing Call of Duty late into Call of Duty 4 with friends from school in public matches. He first started playing more consistently and taking the game serious during Call of Duty World at War. It was at this time MBoZe found the drive to try and become a professional player. MBoZe established himself as a solid competitive player during Black Ops 1 which set himself up for his success in Black Ops 2. With the release of Black Ops 2, MBoZe established himself as a top player, placing T8 in every MLG event, including a major upset 1st place victory against power house compLexity, coL's only loss in 8 events together. Going into Ghosts, he moved around between FaZe Clan, UNiTE Gaming and other top teams, until he placed 6th at UMG Philadelphia 2014 under JuKeD - a pick up squad. After the very first RosterMania, OpTic Gaming recognized his talent and picked him up going into CoD Champs. After placing 3rd at Champs, MBoZe was given his own team in the OpTic organization; OpTic Nation.

Trivia[]

  • MBoZe's favorite gaming moment was collecting a 3 piece in hard point vs compLexity Gaming to secure the MLG PAX Invitational Championship.
  • MBoZe considers it a secret how he came up with his alias, one he does not wish to share. Conspiracy has it the "M" stands for his first name.
  • He found out about competitive Call of Duty from his friend in real life, pro player, SpaceLy.
  • MBoZe's favorite competitive Call of Duty title is Black Ops II.
  • MBoZe is 1 of 6 players to compete on both, OpTic Gaming and OpTic Nation.
  • MBoZe subbed in for Goonjar on Team Kaliber at the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Relegation due to Goonjar not being able to get across the Canadian & United States border.
