Biography[]

Pre World War II[]

MajorManiak made his name by becoming one of the best Search and Destroy players in North America. His biggest S&D tournament win was the UMG Gaming PHiZZURP 10K at the end of the Black Ops 3 season. He continued competing in these S&D tournaments exclusively until the World War II season, when a large amount of S&D only players made the transition to variant.

World War II[]

MajorManiak's first team was under Lethal Gaming alongside fellow Search and Destroy players TeddyRecKs, Ramby, and MuTeX. They placed Top 40 at the CWL Dallas Open and then Top 28 at the CWL New Orleans Open. The team never really made much of an impact online either and they left Lethal after Top 48 finish at the CWL Atlanta Open. At the SEAttle Open, MajorManiak joined OneMind with JetLi, Ramby, and TeddyRecKs but they only placed Top 40. MajorManiak left his circle of Search and Destroy players and joined up with established players Maux, Proto, and Spoof under Impact Gaming. The placed Top 28, MajorManiak's best placing yet, at the CWL Anaheim Open. Following a sixth place finish in the CWL National Circuit United States 2018 Stage 4, the team joined Elevate with Spacely in place of Spoof. After qualifying for the Call of Duty World League Championship 2018, the team surpassed all expectations and finished Top 8, which included preventing OpTic Gaming from advancing out of the group stage.

Black Ops 4[]

MajorManiak, Maux, and Spacely stayed together going into the new season and added Havok and Nagafen. The team announced that they would go orgless into the CWL Las Vegas Open hoping to increase their stock should they qualify for the CWL Pro League. Right before the event, Str8 Rippin signed the roster for the event only. The team placed Top 8, then competed as Team Space at the Pro League Qualifier and made it into the league. After qualifying, they found their pay day as they were signed by esports giants Gen.G.

Trivia[]

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