JKap COD4 Modern Warfare History (2008)

JKap started playing the Call of Duty series back in 2008 on Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.


Jkap COD MW2 history (2010)

JKap joined Xtravagant during Modern Warfare 2. During his time with them, he got 2nd at the MLG Online National Championship and 3rd place at the MLG National Championship 2010.


Jkap COD Black Ops 1 History (2011)

When Black Ops came out, JKap was on IGC Pro. He got 4th place with them at MLG $25K. After that, he joined OpTic Gaming. He found success with this team, alongside veteran players such as BigTymeR, MerK and Rambo, winning 2 championships during his run in Black Ops where he was regarded as one of the best overall players. At MLG Dallas, OpTic got 3rd place, then won MLG Columbus. At the next two tournaments, MLG Anaheim and MLG Raleigh, OpTic placed 3rd and 4th respectively. Then at MLG Orlando, OpTic took home another championship. In the final tournament of the year, MLG National Championship 2011, the team finished 3rd.


JKap COD Black Ops 2 History (2013)

After his time on OpTic, JKap joined EnVyUs. His time on EnVyUs was to be very successful. They consistently placed in the top 5, eventually taking home a championship at UGC Niagara. After Niagara, results declined somewhat, placing outside the top 8 at consecutive events. Following OpTic Gaming dropping MerK from their roster, JKap returned to the team, joining former teammates BigTymeR and NaDeSHoT, as well as Scump. The team performed well online but failed to deliver on LAN. They placed a disappointing 9th at Gfinity 2. To finish the season, they placed 2nd at the MLG Fall Invitational, which hosted only 4 teams.


JKap COD Ghosts History (2014)

At the first even of the Ghosts season, JKap and his team placed discouragingly in 13th at MLG Fall Championship. After the event, JKap was dropped and joined FaZe. His time on FaZe proved unsuccessful, failing to place in the top 5 at any event. When FaZe downsized to just one competitive team (following the dissolution of FaZe Black and FaZe Red), JKap was without a team. However though, it didn’t take long for him to find another, rejoining his previous team EnVyUs. EnVyUs’ new roster consisting of JKap, MerK, NameLeSs and FormaL was an exciting prospect in the community. They didn’t disappoint, placing 1st at Gfinity 3, crushing the competition. With fans extremely eager to see how they would perform at UMG Dallas, EnVy had a lot of momentum heading into the tournament. However, they failed to take home 1st place, losing out to Denial in the finals.


Jkap COD Advanced Warfare History (2015)

For the start of the Advanced Warfare season, FormaL was traded to OpTic, with Clayster going the other way and joining nV. However this team placed poorly at the first two events of the season, and Jkap and Clayster joined Denial Esports, teaming with Attach and Crowder. This team was very successful, placing 2nd in the MLG Pro League Season 1 Regular Season, the MLG Pro League Season 1 Playoffs, and at the Call of Duty Championship 2015: NA Regional Finals, before eventually winning the Call of Duty Championship 2015. The team stayed together for another 3 months, but failed to win an event in this time. JKap returned to Team EnVyUs, where he would remain. However, with teammates Loony, AquA and Octane, the team only performed moderately for the rest of the Advanced Warfare season. JKap finished the year with nV with a 4th place finish at MLG World Finals 2015, with essentially pick up roster with Jurd and Goonjar being loaned in for AquA and Octane.


Jkap COD Black Ops 3 (2016)

Remaining on EnVyUs, JKap had 3 new teammates for the start of the Black Ops 3 season – SlasheR, and the most successful partnership in CoD, ACHES and TeePee. However the team fell short, after qualifying for the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Regular Season, the team finished a disappointing 5th, and 5-8th at the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Playoffs. Following the retirement of TeePee, ACHES was traded to new organisation 100 Thieves, and nV picked up Apathy and John. Despite a slow start, finishing 7-8th at MLG Anaheim Open 2016, this team found consistency, coming 1st in both the 2016 NA CWL Stage 2 Regular Season (although this was only due to OpTic Gaming forfeiting 4 series due to CWL rulings and suspensions), and the 2016 NA CWL Stage 2 Playoffs. At MLG Orlando Open 2016, the final event before champs, the team finished 2nd to OpTic Gaming.

EnVyUs were placed in Group G with fellow NA team Cloud 9, EU squad Team Vitality and the Australian arm of Orbit – Team Orbit ANZ. JKap and his team won the group finishing 3-0 series count, and 9-3 map count. Due to OpTic finishing 2nd in group H, the teams met in winner’s bracket round 1. nV took the match 3-1, winning the final map (Fringe CTF) 1-0, after Karma made a notoriously questionable play with a dart, taking him out of the action while SlasheR made the only flag cap of the game. In winner’s bracket round 2, JKap and nV faced FaZe, and won the series convincingly 3-0, scoring 18 points to 8 in the Uplink on Evac. In the 3rd round of winners, they came up against the surprise package of the tournament, FAB Games eSports, in what was a closer contest than the FaZe match. nV won the Hardpoint and Uplink comfortably, but dropped the Search and Destroy 5-6. However they closed out to win the series 3-1 in the end, winning the Game 4 CTF 3-2, after John secured the match with a capture with only 22 seconds remaining. They now faced Elevate in winners finals. nV took the first map comfortably, winning Evac Hardpoint 250-100, notably all players on the team had over 1 minute in the Hardpoint. Elevate won the Search and Destroy and the Uplink though, leaving JKap and his team fighting for their tournament life. Following strong performances from Apathy and John in the Game 4 Stronghold CTF, they won the map 4-2. With the series now tied 2-2 going into Infection Search and Destroy, despite JKap only getting 2 kills, his teammates played well and the team won the map with a 6-2 victory against a team renowned for Search and Destroy. Now in Grand Finals, they faced EU team Splyce. Surprisingly, nV lost the hardpoint, a mode they had only lost twice previously in the tournament. However they won the next 3 maps with reasonable ease, and won the series 3-1, crowning them Champions for 2016 Call of Duty World League Championship.


Jkap COD Infinite Warfare History (2017)

Due to Apathy’s marriage and JKap’s and SlasheR’s school commitments, the team were less practiced than normal and placed uncharacteristically poorly at the first event of the season 2017 CWL Las Vegas Open, finishing in 9-12th place. As a result of this, and poor placing’s in the the online MLG GameBattles 2K Series tournaments, nV’s place in pools at the next event, 2017 CWL Atlanta Open was far from secure. However, winning a 2k tournament, the team just managed to have enough pro points to make pool play. They played well at the event, but fell just short, finishing 3rd. The team then flew to Paris to compete at the 2017 CWL Paris Open. Surprisingly, the team finished as poorly as they had done back in Vegas, placing 9-12th, following back to back 3-0 losses to OpTic Gaming and Splyce. The team practiced heavily after the event, knowing that their placing in Paris was well below their expected standard, and placed top 4 at both of the subsequent online 2K series. The next event for the squad was the Dallas Open, and the team did fair slightly better. Losses in pool play to OpTic, and the surprisingly strong GosuCrew who came from the Open Bracket, meant EnVy had to play through losers bracket. The team made an admirable run, beating SetToDestroyX, Cloud 9 and Luminosity, before eventually being beating in a map 5 by eventual runners up eUnited, placing JKap and EnVy in 5-6th for the event.

Despite their relatively poor placings at the first 4 events, EnVy were still high enough in the pro points rankings to qualify as the 5th seed for the 2017 CWL Global Pro League Stage 1. EnVy were placed into group red with the top EU team Splyce, the top APAC team Mindfreak, as well as fellow NA Squad Cloud 9, to compete in week 1. They began the weekend up against the overall 4th seed Splyce, and lost a close match 3-1. JKap was left to rally the squad for the rest of the weekend, and managed to do just that. EnVy won the remainder of their matches over the weekend against Cloud 9 and Mindfreak, and the team improved under JKap’s leadership, as well as some map winning plays throughout from the veteran player. For the final match against Splyce, EnVy would have to win the match 3-0 to top the group. EnVy surprised many to do just that, winning the Hardpoint and Search and Destroy narrowly, before completing the clean sweep in a more comfortable Uplink. Following their 1st place in the group stages, EnVy went to Stage 1 playoffs as a top seed. JKap and the squad were unable to play at their normal standard however, losing to both Luminosity and OpTic Gaming, placing 7-8th for the event.

Although disappointed with their placing at playoffs, but having lost to arguably the top 2 teams in Infinite Warfare, JKap was still hopeful of improvement at the 2017 CWL Anaheim Open. However the event was to be EnVy’s worst of the year so far. After a poor performance in pool play, where they lost to Epsilon eSports, Luminosity and even the team from open bracket, Rogue. Despite winning their match against Red Reserve EU, EnVy still finished last in the group as Rogue and a superior map count. Falling immediately to loser’s bracket round 1, they faced Team Allegiance. Given that the Allegiance squad was up and coming players, veterans JKap and his teammates were heavy favourites to win the match up. In a shock defeat though, JKap’s weekend hit its lowest point, as they fell 3-2, losing the game 5 Retaliation Search and Destroy in a crushing round 11, 5-6. EnVyUs placed 21st-24th, JKap’s worst ever placing at a major tournament.
