Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2009)

Karma began competing during the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare season.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2010)

 

Call of Duty: Black Ops (2011)

Karma’s first major event was MLG Columbus in 2011 where he placed in 10th place with his team yunGunZ.

Then, Karma and the YunGunZ finished in 6th place at the 2011 MLG Anaheim event.

However, looking for more than just an average showing, he joined forces with the legendary Rambo under the Xtravagant name. Expecting to replicate the success the IXI name saw in the past, Karma and his teammates went into the rest of the season confident.

However, it turned out to be much of the same with another 6th place finish at MLG Orlando 2011 and a 5th place finish at the season end MLG National Championship 2011.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2012)

Like many players, due to the lack of support he chose to not compete during Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (2013)

With the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, he joined the newly formed team Impact coming in with great expectations. Following solid performances at the first two events, but not what the team was expecting, the roster got reshuffled.

Going into the MLG Winter Championship in Dallas, Impact’s roster consisted of Karma, Parasite, KiLLa, and MiRx. This is where both the team and Karma himself started reaching new levels. They ran through the competition and took the tournament win.

This success continued into the next 3 events with the highlight being the Call of Duty Championship 2013 where Impact won the grand prize of $400,000. During this streak of wins, Karma became known as the best player in the game.

However, like all good things, the success came to a stop at the MLG Spring Championship where Impact finished 2nd.

Hoping they could bring back the success they had previously seen, the team stuck together for another go during Gfinity 1. Unfortunately it got worse, as the team finished a disappointing 4th.

Before the team arrived back in the states, Karma left Impact and joined Team EnVyUs.

Expectations skyrocketed immediately for the team with people expecting them to be capable of knocking compLexity off of their historic run. Unfortunately, this never happened as Team EnVyUs never achieved a top 3 finish the Black Ops 2 season.

Call of Duty: Ghosts (2014)

Going into the release of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Team EnVyUs still had high expectations of winning championships.

At the first event of the season at MLG Fall Championship, the team once again came up well short of what was expected, finishing 6th.

This was the last straw for Karma as he decided to make another team change. He left Team EnVyUs and joined compLexity.

The roster change by compLexity following a tournament win at the MLG Fall Championship was met with lots of criticism, however Karma quickly proved why he is still considered one of the best in the game as the team won their first two events together at UMG Philadelphia 2014 and Call of Duty Championship 2014.

Following the win at the biggest championship of the year, Karma along with the rest of the team cemented themselves as the clear favorites going into every event.

At the next major LAN event at UGC Niagara 2014, the team finally looked beatable falling to amateur team XGN in the first round of the Championship Bracket.

However, the losers bracket didn’t scare them, as they went 21-2 in map count on Sunday to go all the way through the losers bracket and win the tournament.

Following the tournament, Karma and his teammates announced that they were joining Evil Geniuses.

Following the switch over to Evil Geniuses, the team hoped to continue the same success.

Unfortunately, they came up short at their very first event which was the MLG X Games Invitational.

They took home a disappointing bronze medal.

Despite the loss, the team was able to bounce back and win the International Playoff at the MLG Championship Anaheim losing only a combined 5 maps the entire event.

Karma and the rest of the team hoped this would be a sign of more success for the them.

However, at Gfinity 3 the team lost to Team Kaliber in their group stage ensuring they can only have the 2nd seed.

They were placed in the Championship Bracket against FaZe who they would end up losing to, 3-0.

The team had their worst placing to date finishing in the 5th-8th category.

The next event was UMG Dallas but EG would not be attending due to Karma’s wife giving birth and him wanting to stay at home with her.

After Dallas, Karma announced that he was no longer happy with EG and would be leaving.

After some speculation it was announced that he was loaned to FaZe Clan for the remainder of the season but would remain on contract with Evil Geniuses.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (2015)

After joining Faze that did not work out well, and going into Advanced Warfare, he ended up on OpTic Nation, OpTic Gaming’s secondary Call of Duty team. While yet again that did not work, Karma soon found himself on OpTic’s main Call of Duty team about midway through the Advanced Warfare. He then ended up winning 4 events that year.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (2016)

Going into the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 season, OpTic Gaming decided to keep their team together.

Karma and his team would win 5 events, going into Call of Duty Championships 2016.

They would then place 7/8, and as to many, underperform.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (2017)

Going into Infinite Warfare, yet again the team would stay together, and be the favorites for every event. Karma and his team would win 4 events that year, including Call of Duty Championships 2017, cementing themselves as the greatest Call of Duty roster ever, and Karma becoming the only player to have 3 rings.

Call of Duty: World War 2 (2018)

 

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (2019)

After the 2019 Call of Duty World League Championship, Karma left OpTic Gaming.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2020)

Karma announced he joined the Seattle Surge for the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
