Gives his team some much needed momentum
March 10, 2018
Shockz turned around the mid-game to nearly pull off a reverse sweep in a 3-2 loss to Monaco eSports on Day 2 of CWL Atlanta.
Shockz had a slow start this series as Mindfreak entered this game already knowing their seeding for the playoffs. It wasn't until Monaco eSports nearly 3-0'd Mindfreak that Shockz began to turn up. Round 3 Capture the Flag on Ardenens Forest saw Shockz explode with a 27/9 KD but only got a 4-1 scoreline. Despite the heavy slaying, Shockz struggled to punish Monaco eSports spawns but was able to effectively hold his team's position while scoring a suite of Scorestreaks. Shockz built his extraordinary KD by simply holding the hill in Ruins, beaming Monaco as soon as they left their trench.

Fighta built late-game momentum in a 3-2 loss to Monaco eSports on Day 2 of CWL Atlanta.
Similar to his SMG partner, BuZZO, Fighta didn't find the confidence he needed until the late game. However, unlike BuZZO, Fighta was able to slay at first in Round 2 Search & Destroy, Fighta was being continually picked off due to his over-aggression in trying to find picks. But he quickly learned his lesson in Round 3 Capture the Flag where he began to push out with his teammates. By grouping up with his teammates, Fighta was able to make two flag captures in the first half of the game off of only a handful of kills. However, by Round 5 Search & Destroy, Mindfreak's coordination began to fall apart.
Slays well but makes key mistakes

Denz nearly destroyed Monaco eSports in a 3-2 loss on Day 2 of CWL Atlanta.
Despite already slotted to play against Luminosity Gaming, Denz didn't let up on the gas in this series. He tore through Monaco eSports in a devastating fashion, but he still wasn't able to win the series due to a lack of support from his teammates. He'd drop a massive 32/15 KD in Round 4 Hardpoint, a scoreline that allowed him to easily handle Monaco. But Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy saw Denz struggle to make plays off of his kills. In Round 5 Search & Destroy, Denz would get a Glide Bomb by Game 5. But when Monaco started to build a reverse sweep, Denz only used his Scorestreak in the final game of the series, essentially letting Monaco build momentum.
Falls flat with poor gunplay

BuZZO struggled to slay well in a 3-2 loss to newcomers Monaco eSports on Day 2 of CWL Atlanta.
BuZZo had a rough series even as the rest of his team popped off. Sticking as his team's core engage, he just couldn't slay targets alongside Shockz, even in the late-game where Mindfreak usually thrives. This is also despite Mindfreak playing two rounds on Saint Maire Du Mont, arguably their best map. BuZZO seemed lost in most engagements as he failed to check his flanks consistently or weaken his opponents for his teammates. For example, in Round 1 Hardpoint on Ardennes Forest, BuZZO rotated early to the second cave but was almost immediately pushed out in a 1-vs-2 fight.
Lands the best Scorestreak in the CWL

Shockz utterly destroyed Team Kaliber in a 3-1 victory in Week 6 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
Mindfreak has always been considered a team on the cusp, and today Shockz proved they have the talent to break into the top tier. The biggest play he pulled was an absurd 18 killstreak in Round 1 Hardpoint on Sainte Maire Du Mont that won his team the map and even 100-point clubbed Team Kaliber. Shockz would stumble in Round 2 Search & Destroy due to some major positioning mistakes, but he would easily carry his team in the next two maps. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Shockz play shockingly aggressively against Team Kaliber, bullying out the back-to-back CWL Open winners from a win.

Qualifies for 2017 CoD Champs
July 14, 2017
Mindfreak Black qualified for CoD Champs by advancing through the loser's bracket of the APAC Last Chance Qualifier.
Mindfreak Black was long expected to earn one of the three APAC spots for CoD Champs, but the controversy surrounding the club was whether the organization would be allowed to have two different teams compete at the tournament. It appears as though that will be the case, meaning the squad consisting of Hopey, Zepa, Setzyy and Swiftaz0r will stay under the Mindfreak brand for now.
