The discussion is not new but as more time passes it is getting a bit worrisome. Call Of Duty professional players are leaving the game one after the other. Is Modern Warfare to blame? Are the devs not listening? All these questions kept coming up the past few weeks. But one day or the other we see a player from the competitive scene leave. The latest to call it quits publicly is Doug ‘Censor’ Martin. He is a professional player for New York Subliners but has sat out almost the whole season on the bench. The New York Subliners are going in hot into the CDL playoffs and Censor just came out a few days ago with this piece of news;

This doesn’t come out as a shock honestly. Previously, pros have complained that Modern Warfare is a game that is absolutely not up to its mark.

Maybe, just maybe the devs should be paying a bit more attention to the game. If this scenario continues the League will take a huge brunt next season. Just in its inaugural version, the hype is tremendous and hence nobody would want this esports scene to get hurt.
But for the major part of 2020, I think many pros feel the same as Dashy from Optic Gaming;
