Before and during his professional Call of Duty career, PHiZZURP was well known in the Search and Destroy community. Klemenov would often play with amateur players in that game mode in daily tournaments, introducing the community to a host of new young talent, also and becoming a well known strategist in the process.
In a press release, UMG called the #Phizzurp10k tournament the “1st Annual”, implying that this will be a yearly event,
