Mindfreak
Australia
Reunited with Hopey
September 5, 2017
Rival will be teaming with Mindfreak Black to start the competitive Call of Duty season, his new teammate Hopey announced on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
This roster is basically Chiefs Esports Call of Duty roster during the Black Ops III season, except Zepa will be in place of Dean. It's a bit of a surprise to see Mindfreak Black make a roster change given their surprising success at the 2017 Call of Duty World Championships, but internal issues seem to be the main culprit behind the roster moves.
Teaming with Mindfreak Black
September 5, 2017
macka will be teaming with Mindfreak Black to start Call of Duty: World War II, his new teammate Hopey tweeted on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Mindfreak Black made an extraordinary run at the 2017 Call of Duty World Championships before ultimately falling short in the beginning stages of bracket play, but the success wasn't enough to keep the roster intact for the new competitive season. Enter macka, who Hopey talked up wildly in his introductory tweet. While not much is known about this Australian player, given who he is teaming with, it seems likely Mindfreak Black will be players once again in the regional scene.
No longer on Mindfreak Black
September 5, 2017
Setzy is no longer on Mindfreak Black, his former teammate Hopey announced on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Hopey cited internal strife as the reason for the move, so it makes sense that Mindfreak Black would go in a different direction, despite surprisingly advancing to bracket play in the 2017 Call of Duty World Championships. Setzy is expected to find a new team prior to the start of the new competitive season.
Leaving Mindfreak Black
September 5, 2017
Swiftazor will be leaving Mindfreak Black, his former teammate Hopey relayed on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
While North America, and even at times Europe, have seen major roster moves during the Call of Duty offseason, the Australian region has largely kept out of the headlines, until this move. Swiftazor was one of the biggest names on the Mindfreak Black roster that made a surprise run into the championship portion of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championships before bowing out in the first round. As a result, he'll likely join his new team with an added layer of name recognition and should make whatever Australian team picks him up one of the better in the region.
Competitive in blowout loss
August 11, 2017
Zepa finished Friday's 3-0 loss to Mindfreak at the 2017 CWL Championship with a 58/62 KD.
ANALYSIS
Zepa had a better showing in this series than he did in the team's first round of bracket play against OpTic Gaming, when he finished just 44/59. Unfortunately, his improvement on the slaying front didn't do enough to help the team. He collected a 24/28 mark and 51 seconds of hill time during Round 1 Hardpoint and backed that up with a 4/5 Round 2 Search & Destroy. However, he also accidentally killed Setzy during what could have potentially served as a turning point for the club in Search and was later killed by a teammate himself. The team ultimately had a disastrous showing in that round, losing 6-0 to Enigma6. Zepa had a solid first half with a 14/11 KD in Round 3 Uplink, but he and the team failed to hold on to a late 7-6 lead in the map. Mindfreak dropped the round in overtime and the series 3-0 to be eliminated from the tournament.

Call of Duty
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
