Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3
Crowder started playing the Call of Duty series back in 2008 on Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare but took a long hiatus from the scene until Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. He picked things back up quite quickly though, placing extremely well in UMG events with aDversity and carried that returned success into Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Starting with vVv Gaming alongside Realize, Theory, and Complex, they had solid placings at the MLG Winter Championship 2013 and Call of Duty Championship 2013, and Crowder decided to move to FaZe Clan with SpaceLy, Huhdle, and Slacked. The roster performed well, but was unable to make a name for themselves throughout the rest of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This disappointing finishes would soon be forgotten as Crowder entered Call of Duty: Ghosts, where he had his best placings to date.
Call of Duty Ghosts
Crowder started off the season with FaZe Clan to a T24 placing. As the captain, Crowder thought a team change was necessary, so he built a new roster of himself, Classic, JKap, and Methodz going into UMG Philadelphia 2014. They saw greater success here with a 7th place finish, bring compLexity Gaming, the reigning champions, to a Game 5 S&D. Going into the Call of Duty Championship 2014, Methodz was replaced by ProoFy. The team had some huge plays, but eventually fell with a 6th place finish. Crowder continued to captain FaZe Clan throughout Ghosts until his team was dropped and replaced by the new FaZe Black. He was offered a spot on Denial eSports with ZooMaa, Saints, and StuDyy, and saw great success with them, winning the first event they attended as a team, UMG Dallas 2014. This success carried over to UMG Nashville 2014 where they placed 2nd. Regardless of their 5-6th placing at the MLG CoD League Season 3 Playoffs, Crowder and Denial eSports finished the Call of Duty: Ghosts season strong.
