The return of one of Call of Duty’s most notable players was short-lived. According to reports from insiders, Doug “Censor” Martin was dropped from Triumph Gaming’s roster. Censor played with the team at the Call of Duty Challengers circuit New York event over the weekend. However, in the player’s own words, his performance was “unacceptable.” Triumph Gaming must have thought so as well because the team has reportedly let go of Censor and already found a replacement.
Triumph Gaming ends the Censor experiment
It was on July 9, 2020 that Triumph picked up the former FaZe Clan player and content creator. However, a lackluster performance from both Censor and the roster as a whole has led us to where we are now.
We placed T4 and lost to carnage 5-5 GGs. My performance that series was unacceptable.

At this past weekend’s New York Home Series, Triumph Gaming placed 4th in the Call of Duty Challengers tournament. While not a horrible finish, it seems like Triumph expected more when it introduced the new roster. After all, it did win three events earlier in the season, including two wins at the Dallas and Florida Home Series.
This announcement hasn’t been made official by Triumph as of yet. However, known insider CDL Intel on Twitter is reporting that the change has already gone through.
Update: Censor is being replaced for @Diamondcon_

The account was among the first to leak that Censor had joined the amateur team in the first place. So, though the reporting could be inaccurate, it would be a surprise to see Censor still on the Triumph Gaming roster.
CDL Intel is also reporting that Triumph is replacing Censor with Conor “Diamondcon” Johst. Diamondcon does have two event wins under his belt this year after playing with amateur squad Sixth Gear. Although, he has less experience than Censor, so it’ll be interesting to see how Triumph does with him aboard. The supposed new roster is scheduled to play at the London Home Series this weekend, starting on July 17, 2020.
