Call of Duty
Ian “Enable” Wyatt has officially announced his retirement from professional Call of Duty. Enable has been in the professional gaming scene since early 2006 when he was playing Halo 2 at age 12. Unfortunately, he saw little success at the start of his Halo career, with numerous top 32 placements at MLG events. It wasn’t until Halo 3 when Enable began seeing some serious results with his team Status Quo. The team followed its second-place finish in Halo 3 with a win at the first MLG Halo Reach event. After his win at MLG Dallas, Enable went on to win MLG Columbus, which marked his second major MLG tournament victory.
Enable had bounced around several different teams in Call of Duty while he played professional Halo. He eventually retired from Halo to pursue Call of Duty professionally full-time. Afterward, he then joined FaZe Clan, where he stayed from February of 2015 to September of 2017. He became the second player to win a major event in both Halo and Call of Duty on May 3, 2015. OpTic Gaming won ESWC Zenith with Enable on the roster as a temporary substitute.
After his time on FaZe Clan, Enable eventually played for top organizations like Evil Geniuses and Team Kaliber. Then, he became part of the legendary 100 Thieves roster, where he cemented his brand and helped bring home two championships. When Call of Duty franchised, he joined the Seattle Surge where he was benched for most of the season.
Enable looks to the future
With Enable’s retirement from professional Call of Duty, there are a lot of avenues that he could take. In his YouTube video addressing his retirement, he revealed that he already had an offer. While this offer was not publicly announced yet, he seemed excited about this new opportunity. Enable also added that while he won’t be competing competitively in Call of Duty, he would still compete in Warzone.
100 Thieves, recently expanding in Call of Duty to “LA Thieves,” is where fans would like to see Enable go. Since 100 Thieves re-entered the scene with two of their form players, fans have already started to request Enable’s return. He was content gold for the team back in Black Ops 4, and he would be a great asset to the team moving forward.
