The Beginning

Realize started playing Call of Duty in the 9th grade on Call of Duty: Black Ops. Realize started out playing public matches in Call of Duty: Black Ops before getting into the competitive scene on Game Battles around the middle of the 2011 Winter season. Realize's neighbor, who was an avid Call of Duty competitive player, got Realize into competitive gaming by asking him to go to MLG Orlando the day before the event just for fun and ended up placing top 32. After that event, Realize was motivated to play even more, thus continuing to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, where he played the game non stop to be the best he could be.

The Break Through

Continuing into Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Realize's competitive career really took, having then play for names like aDversity and vVv Gaming and escalated even more which allowed Realize to grow placing 3rd at MLG Dallas and 8th at MLG Anaheim with vVv Gaming. Following that was an unfortunate turn of events where Realize left vVv Gaming, he then got picked up by SoaR for two more events of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 season, placing 4th at UMG Atlanta and 5th at MLG PAX Prime Invitational. Realize then left SoaR and teamed up with aDversity for the last event of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 season being UMG Dallas where they placed 9th.

Many Roster Changed

After the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 season had finished were a series of team changes for the current Call of Duty: Ghosts season. Realize left aDversity and joined VanQuish for MLG Columbus. At MLG Columbus, Realize and his team, VanQuish, placed 7th overall out of 128 teams. Following MLG Columbus, Realize left VanQuish and joined Dare the team did not last before disbanding after only a few weeks. Following the disbandment of Dare, Realize went on to play for Curse Youth alongside Methodz, Chino and Attach. Disappointingly, Curse Youth weren't allowed to attend due to age restrictions.
