Biography[]

Black Ops 3[]

Giants Gaming announced releasing JaayZ and peLukaa with MethodZ and Lgend to the official roster for the 2016 CWL EU Pro Division Online Qualifying Tournament. The team started out with 3-0's all the way to the Round of 32 where they faced Orbit in a 3-2 victory. After the victory, their next opponent, Barrage eSports, would also lead the team to a 3-2 series, which Giants came on top to move on to the qualifying round and face Spanish team Spirit Gaming and win 3-0 to secure a spot in the 2016 EU COD World League Stage 1.

After finishing in 8th Place in 2016 EU CWL Stage 1 Regular Season with a 7-11 (25-42) record, Giants Gaming were forced into the 2016 EU CWL Stage 1 Relegation where they would go up against a challenging team, FAB Games eSports. Giants were able to take the series 4-1 and qualify for 2016 EU CWL Stage 2 Regular Season and qualified for Call of Duty World League Championship 2016 secured $15,000 at Champs.

Infinite Warfare[]

MethodZ joined Team Heretics from rivals Giants Gaming in August 2017 for 21,000€, replaced Oney for the last event of the year, the LVP La Copa 2017, where they finished a disappointing top eight.

World War II[]

Team Heretics made their move into the CWL with MethodZ, Pabloskis, Lucky and envdiaN leading the charge. They were only able to compete in the open events and unfortunately failed to win any prize money through the year; apart from at Call of Duty World League Championship 2018. After two awful performances at Dallas and New Orleans, Sukry and JurNii came in to replace Pabloskis and envdiaN - their best placing was a top twenty, which they achieved twice at Atlanta and Seattle. Domestically they were not up to scratch, placing fourth at the LVP SuperLiga Orange Season 13 Finals to everyone's surprise.

Black Ops 4[]

Team Heretics went into the new game by adding the young promise MettalZ to their already established lineup. They started out the season on fire by winning two out of the first three online 2Ks and the CWL Las Vegas Spanish Qualifier. At CWL Las Vegas, the team made it out of the Open Bracket in Winners by defeating one of the Open Bracket favorites FC Black 3-0. This sent them into Pool B with Evil Geniuses, Luminosity, Red Reserve, and UYU. The team went 1-3, with their only win being pool winners Evil Geniuses, and were sent to the first round of the Losers Bracket. They defeated Revenge but were then knocked out by Team Reciprocity with a Top 20 finish. This placement was good enough for them to qualify for the CWL Pro League Qualifier. At the qualifier, they solidified themselves as a top team by winning five out of the six matches in their pool, only losing to Team Envy in map 5. This gave auto qualification to the CWL Pro League 2019, the first time for a Spanish team. They got off to an unbeaten start in the Pro League with a 5-0 record, before things started to go against them with the departure of Sukry and signing the Italian player Wartex for the end of season. During the year they accumulated almost $150,000 in prize money, finishing top sixteen at Call of Duty World League Championship 2019.
