Alexx competed in a few tournaments prior to Infinite Warfare with other EU AMs without much success. Going into the new game Alexx was not 18, but since he was turning 18 towards the middle of the year, he wanted to get more exposure in the AM scene so he could eventually be picked up by a solid team. He competed at the Gfinity Infinite Warfare Launch Cup with Disarray, Gismo, and Parallax under Vison6 eSports and managed to finish top 8 after beating Splyce which was a team consisting of established EU pros. The team then replaced Parallax with JohnnyW and placed second in the SFCO SCUF 5K under dCypher eSports. Alexx then decided to just play online and wait until he turned 18 to join a team eligible of competing in MLG and CWL tournaments. Due to his perceived skill, there was hype building surrounding Alexx so when he did finally turn 18 he was swiftly picked up to team with top EU AMs Braaain, QwiKeR, and Deleo. This team immediately found success placing second in their first EU MLG 2K, but after replacing Braaain with Niall, the team failed to qualify for the CWL Pro League Relegation falling just short by finishing second in the EU CWL Pro League Relegation Qualifier. The team was then picked up by eRa Eternity EU to compete at the EU only CWL Sheffield Open, where eRa would top their pool and eventually place top six among the top teams in Europe. The team then joined Team Infused and replaced QwiKeR with Nolson. Team Infused won their first EU MLG 2K and carried that success into the EU CWL LCQ where they qualified for CWL Champs without dropping a map. Team Infused continue to see success ahead of Champs finishing second in to EU MLG 2Ks. At the CWL Championship, Team Infused managed to make it out of pools after beating Lethal Gaming and Mindfreak in a SnD tie breaker as all three teams were 1-2 in series count and 4-7 in map count. In bracket play, Team Infused surprised many by upsetting Rise Nation, but then lost to FaZe Clan in the next round and lost to Luminosity Gaming in the losers bracket for a top 12 placement.
World War II
Despite impressing many at Champs, Alexx didn't manage to land on a top EU team and started the year playing with ShAnE, QwiKeR, and Desire on exceL eSports. After a top 32 placement in the first EU MLG 2K, the team replaced ShAnE with Weeman and saw slight improvements, but still decided to drop Weeman for Zed ahead of the first event. At the CWL Dallas Open, exceL eSports failed to make it out of the open bracket falling just short with a top 32 placement. exceL eSports then saw decent placements online, but only managed to place top 40 at the CWL New Orleans Open. Despite the poor placement, Alexx was picked up by GGEA Purple to team with MarkyB, Urban, and Defrag. GGEA Purple was moderately well online, but placed a poor top 64 at the CWL Atlanta Open. The team then improved making it through the open bracket at the CWL Birmingham Open where they placed top 20 after beating the pro league team Team Vitality, but they eventually lost in a game 5 against eUnited, which would have been a huge upset had they won. Alexx's skill was beginning to get noticed by other EU teams and he was picked up on the pro league team UNILAD Esports to team with wuskin, Zed, and Skrapz. This team didn't start out too hot placing only top 16 at the CWL Seattle Open and Skrapz was then poached by Red Reserve. UNILAD Esports ended up picking up Zed as a replacement, and many people thought this change would really hurt UNILAD Esports as their main slayer left. However, Alexx and Zed found good chemistry as a sub duo and the team impressed many with a top 4 placement at the CWL Anaheim Open after topping their pool, beating FaZe Clan with a 3-0 in the winners bracket, and upsetting OpTic Gaming in a game 5 in the losers bracket before losing to Luminosity Gaming. The team kept in good form and placed top 6 in the CWL Pro League Stage 2 by making it into playoffs where they lost to Team Kaliber in the winners bracket, but once again beat OpTic Gaming in the losers bracket before losing to eUnited. To end the year, the team was seeming like the second best team in Europe and at the CWL Championship, UNILAD Esports got off to a good start going 3-0 in their pool without dropping a map. They then beat CompLexity Gaming in the first round of the winners bracket, but UNILAD Esports was then 3-0ed by eUnited and 3-0ed by FaZe Clan for an abrupt ending with a top 12 placement.
Black Ops 4
At the start of the year, UNILAD Esports ran out of funding and surprisingly Alexx decided to join a new team with EU pros that struggled towards the end of WWII in Madcat, Joshh, Dqvee, and Peatie. This team was performing decently online and was picked up by the Lightning Pandas and added Op2 as the coach ahead of the CWL Las Vegas Open. At Vegas, this team had enough pro points to start in pools and they ended up surprising many by topping their pool and eventually placing top 6 after beating Team Envy and Evil Geniuses. Alexx himself had a really strong event dropping a 1.3 K/D. Even though this placement was higher than most people expected, it was just shy of being good enough to qualify for the CWL Pro League, meaning the Lightning Pandas would have to play in the CWL Pro League Qualifier for a shot in the pro league. At the qualifier, the Lightning Pandas came out staggeringly slow and didn't win a single series going 0-7 and failed to qualify for the CWL Pro League. Alexx then promptly left the team and played on CRYPTiCK Gaming with Gismo, Keza, Cammy, and Dylan, and this team won the EEG European League Season 1 Playoffs. Alexx then joined Team Sween consisting of Dylan, Nolson, QwiKeR, and Weeman, and this team won their first EU MLG 2K. Dylan was then called up to the pro league and was replaced by Cammy, but the team was able to remain strong winning two more EU MLG 2Ks and winning the UK CWL Forth Worth National Qualifier. Despite the solid online performances, the team only finished top 8 at the CWL Fort Worth Open. This was slightly disappointing as they were expected to be one of the strongest teams at the open. Alexx was still viewed as one of the top EU talents outside of the pro league, so he left Team Sween with the hopes of being picked up by a league team. Eventually Alexx was picked up onto Denial Esports to team with fellow EU pros Rated, Joee, Bance, and NA pro Brack with Blfire as the coach. Denial Esports went into CWL London without a lot of practice time, and placed a worst possible top 16, although in pool play they did manage to beat the previous event winners Luminosity Gaming in a game 5. With Alexx's highly anticipated entrance into the pro league, he did not live up to the hype dropping only a .85 K/D. Back in the pro league Alexx and Denial Esports began to look better going 3-4 in the next two weeks of the pro league. Ahead of the next event the team left Denial Esports and continued under the name Units. At CWL Anaheim the Units still did not seem to improve only winning one series finishing top 12. Despite the poor performances, Alexx and Brack were able to stand out on the roster and that helped Alexx land a spot on Team Reciprocity to team with Wuskin, Zed, Dylan, and Denz with ShAnE as the coach. With the addition of Alexx, Team Reciprocity boosted their slaying potential and they ended the CWL Pro League going 3-1 in the final week and finishing fourth in their pool for a top 8 overall guaranteeing them a spot in the playoffs. At the CWL Pro League Playoffs, Team Reciprocity battled for a top fourth placement and Alexx was able to prove that he was a valuable addition as his flex ability to switch from the saug to the maddox bettered the team's map pool and slaying power. To end the year the team had high hopes for the CWL Championship as the best European team, but they didn't get off to the greatest start dropping to Team Envy in pool play and landing on the harder side of the bracket. After impressive wins over FaZe Clan and Luminosity Gaming, the team was outclassed by OpTic Gaming and 100 Thieves and ended with a top 6 placement. Even though their champs run was cut shorter than desired, Alexx was able to go from heartbreak from missing out on the pro league at the start of the year, to landing on the top EU team at the end of the year.
