Biography

Clayster started playing competitive Call Of Duty in 2007. In 2009, during the MW2.pngCall of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 era, Clayster proved he was a top player by achieving a spot at the MLG.png MLG Nationals. In 2010, during the Black Ops 1 season, he competed at both MLG.png MLG Dallas as well as MLG.png MLG Raleigh. Due to his academic commitments at Southern University of New Orleans, Clayster took a while off of competitive gaming to fully focus on his education. In 2012 Clayster started playing competitive gaming again during BOPS2.pngCall of Duty: Black Ops 2 and he experienced almost unbelievable success.

During BOPS2.png Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Clayster played for OpTic Nation, Roughnex.png RoughNeX, Thrust.png Thrust, Unite.png UNiTE and Complexity.png compLexity before joining TK.png Team KaLiBeR at the beginning of Ghosts.pngCall Of Duty: Ghosts. It was during his time as a member of Complexity.png compLexity that he and his team mates experienced incredible success, winning seven of the final eight events of BOPS2.pngCall of Duty: Black Ops 2. After winning the first event Ghosts.pngCall Of Duty: Ghosts, Clayster was dropped from Complexity.png compLexity due to a few personal issues within the team. TK.png Team KaLiBeR lost one of their players Goonjar who joined NV.jpg EnVyUs and they took the opportunity to pick up Clayster for the Ghosts.pngCall Of Duty: Ghosts 2014 season. Clayster's first event with TK.png Team KaLiBeR, UMG.png UMG Philadelphia saw Clayster make it to the Grand Final against his old team Complexity.png compLexity, losing the series and taking 2nd place.

After the event, with an unprecedented amount of roster changes in the community, it was announced that Clayster had left TK.png Team KaLiBeR to join the Optic.png OpTic Gaming squad alongside NaDeSHoT, Ricky and Parasite for the remainder of the Ghosts.pngCall Of Duty: Ghosts 2014 season.

With the roster of NaDeSHoT, Scump, MBoZe and Clayster, they found success placing 033rd 3rd in COD-Champs.png Call of Duty Championship 2014. After the Call of Duty Championship and MLG Season 1 Playoffs there was another flurry of roster changes which resulted in MBoZe being replaced by ProoFy.

The roster of NaDeSHoT, Scump, ProoFy and Clayster did not immediately find success as they placed 077th 7th at their first LAN together, that being UGC Niagara.png UGC Niagara. However, they placed 011st 1st at MLG.png X Games Austin.png MLG X Games Invitational and they placed 022nd 2nd at MLG.png MLG Championship Anaheim, losing out to EvilGeniuses.png Evil Geniuses in the Grand Final.
