Crimsix's most important titles

Before we talk about Crimsix's most important achievements, we should also add that prior to his Call of Duty career, he played Halo professionally, finishing fourth in MLG Columbus in Halo: Reach.

With Halo: Reach being dropped from the Major League Gaming Pro Circuit and addition of Call of Duty, Crimsix made the transition to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

He was successful as he transitioned to Black Ops 2. Together with compLexity Gaming, they won the Machinima Frag Cup IV. They also placed fourth at the MLG Winter Championship 2013. His most important achievements with compLexity Gaming are the Call of Duty Championship 2014 and MLG Spring Championship 2013 titles. It was clear from then on that he would have an amazing career.

In my opinion, he played most perfectly while he played for Dallas Empire. They became the champions of the season by completing the Call of Duty League - 2020 Playoffs in first place. In the 2020 season, they also performed brilliantly at Call of Duty League 2020 Week 12 - London, Week 6 - Chicago and Week 4 - Los Angeles. In short, they dominated the season. He also has many more successes with Dallas Empire.

Another team where he had a great performance was OpTic Gaming. They finished first in magnificent tournaments like CWL Championship 2017, CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs 2017, CWL Las Vegas Open 2019. They also easily finished first in many smaller tournaments.

The last team to stand out with his success is the New York Subliners. Unfortunately, he could not reach the level of success he achieved in Dallas Empire and OpTic Gaming with New York Subliners. The Call of Duty League 2022: Pro-Am Classic title has been his biggest success with the New York Subliners.

Information about Crimsix

Now, let's take a look at the information about Crimsix, some of which are interesting and some that reveal the achievements of Crimsix.

Crimsix is the first player to earn the Major League Gaming Pro Player title in both Halo and Call of Duty.

He's also one of six players on the roster during that glorious period when compLexity/Evil Geniuses won a total of 14 events.

Likewise, he was one of the six players in that magnificent period of OpTic Gaming, where they won 18 tournaments. He has been continuing this success since May 2015.

He also holds the title of being the only Call of Duty player to win 5 consecutive ESWC Championships. Moreover, he also won the last major LAN championships of Black Ops 2, Ghosts, Advanced Warfare, Infinite Warfare, and Modern Warfare.

The old nickname of Crimsix was Criminal and later on he combined it with the words “sports” and “six” and used it as C6 and Crimsix.

Together with Clayster, they became the first console esports players to surpass the $1 Million prize money.

According to Clayster, Crimsix changed his nickname to C6 in 2020 because a shorter nick was harder to spot through smoke and bushes.

A career full of success ended at the top. As all esports lovers, we would like to thank Crimsix for adding value to the esports scene. Be sure to follow Luckbox for more Call of Duty news.
