Biography[edit]

Pre Modern Warfare[edit]

Shotzzy was a Halo World Champion before he began competing in Call of Duty. He transitioned games in fall 2018 since HCS had stopped supported Halo events until Infinite released in 2021. During Black Ops 4, Shotzzy began competing in online tournaments until he turned 18 in June 2019. With a pickup team he placed Top 48 at the CWL Amateur Finals 2019 but was known as a player with a ton of potential going into franchising.

Modern Warfare[edit]

During the week of October 14, Shotzzy joined Dallas Empire along with Clayster, iLLeY, Huke, and Crimsix.

After dominating the early preseason online tournaments, Dallas entered Launch Weekend as one of the top teams. Their dominance did not directly translate over to LAN as they were defeated by Chicago Huntsmen and Atlanta FaZe in their two matches. Despite those teams being two of the other top three teams, Dallas was already being nicknamed as "onliners". They silenced some of those doubters by defeating crowd favorites London Royal Ravens and making the grand finals of London in Week 2 but ultimately fell to Chicago Huntsmen again. In Week 4, they showed up and proved they were a top team. After losing to Atlanta, they beat Florida Mutineers to get out of groups, and then took down OGLA and Minnesota RØKKR to give Huke, iLLeY, and Shotzzy their first major Call of Duty championship. After an extended break due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Empire returned in Week 5 for their home series. They got out of groups easily but lost to Minnesota RØKKR in the rematch of the previous grand final. Week 6 would be the Empire's most impressive performance yet. They beat Chicago and Atlanta in the bracket to claim their second championship.

The team had nearly two months off before returning for Week 9, where they made it out of the losers bracket in their group following a loss to FaZe. In a game 5 round 11, they fell to eventual champions Florida Mutineers in the semifinal. Week 10, brought another semifinal appearance but as a second seed after losing to Florida Mutineers in the group stage. They lost to Atlanta FaZe 3-2. Dallas finally claimed the throne again with a victory in the London Home Series. It would be the most dominant win by any team to date as they finished with a 12-1 map count. In the final week, Dallas made another semifinal appearance but fell to home series hosts Toronto Ultra in the semifinal. That loss cemented their #2 finish in the season with 250 CDL Points.

Dallas started the Call of Duty League Championship 2020 in Winners Round 3 where they beat Toronto Ultra 3-2. The Empire then beat Atlanta FaZe 3-2 in the Winners Final. In the Grand Final, they beat Atlanta FaZe again, this time 5-1 to win the first ever Call of Duty League Championship. This win gave Clayster and C6 both three World Championship rings while Huke, iLLeY, and Shotzzy got their first.
