Posted On: July 15, 2009 By: Kilmer
Hey guys, I know it's been forever since an update was issued, so just wanted to keep everyone up to date with the latest happenings. Currently we are competing in the inaugural season of XPL CoD4. With CAL closing it's doors a few months back the team took a much needed break from competition. We are now back playing in XPL and looking forward to the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 later this year. The forums also got a much needed update, so go check them out and say hey!
A New Chapter
Posted On: January 15, 2009 By: Kilmer
With the off season and the holidays behind us, a new chapter is being written in the Empath Gaming saga. New and old faces come and go and onward we look to new seasons of CAL-M and CEVO-O. The departure of a few members has opened to the door for the return of some old faces. Look for a couple of new guys showing their faces around soon to round out the roster for the upcoming seasons of play. Hopefully the final roster additions will be completed soon and we can again focus on another fun season of play.

Here we stand at the end of the CAL-Main regular season and the playoffs just under way. Last night Empath took on the #1 seed Doubletake on mp_strike and mounted a crazy second half comeback that ended up with a 13-10 Empath victory to put us into the semi-finals next week. Meanwhile, with the release of Call of Duty: World at War, we have a dissension among the CoD teams to which game will be played competitively after this season of CoD4 wraps. Some want to return to CoD2, some want to just stay with CoD4, and others want to move on to the new CoD5 installment. While it is still up in the air which game will prevail, we will sit back and wait and see. Look for continued results posted under the Recent Matches section to the left. We'll keep you posted...

Another season of CAL is upon us and the Empath crew has once again been promoted to the highest level of play in CAL-Main. This marks the team as now having competed in the highest level of play in all of the Call of Duty series games. With the move up comes along some new faces and some old faces alike. Rejoining the team is Ferox and Zane with the new addition of longtime friend Kennedy. While there is talk of this being the last season of play for CoD4 with the release of CoD5 just around the corner, CAL has decided to form a CoD1 tournament. Empath will also be competing in the upcoming CoD1 tournament, so stay tuned for more updates.
End of the Season
Posted On: August 4, 2008 By: Kilmer
The season finally came to an end last night with our loss in the playoffs to the favored iO squad. They played a great match and I'm sure will do well through the remainder of the playoffs. With the season coming to a close it ends a great run that the crew of old school players put together to even make the playoffs cut. Despite a slow start to the season, the Empath squad reeled off 3 consecutive wins to close out the season in great fashion. A big thank you goes out to all the guys who contributed throughout the season including unbroken, cutthroat, eleto0l, b1gtuck, slayer, 5thy, and laser. Look for a new and improved lineup next season and thanks again to Mercenary Gaming Servers for providing us with top notch servers throughout many seasons of play!
CAL Nears the End
Posted On: July 14, 2008 By: Kilmer
With the season of CAL-IM nearing the end, things have been looking up for the Empath crew. What started out as a sluggish start has slowly started to turn back around to a possible playoff birth with a win in our final match of the season. Sitting just outside the bubble, the Empath squad has managed to rally off two straight wins to put them back on track to finish the season with a winning record. A big thank you is in line to everyone that has helped out this season. It's been a great ride playing again with the majority of the old school roster and am glad to see the return of some old faces. Look for Empath returning next season with a couple of new faces and a re-focused attitude.

With a number of events happening between now and the end of last season of CAL, CEVO, and the NERV Lan, the old school roster of Empath appears to be reuniting to make a run in CAL-IM. After a disappointing finish at the NERV Lan, some of the members decided to go their separate ways in hopes of finding greener pastures. This ended up opening the door for the return of 2 original members, Unbroken & Cutthroat, and paving the way to the acquisition of Copeland. Combined with 5thy$ent deciding to hang around, we now have a solid core made up of mostly original team members from way back. With the possibility of eleto0L making his infamous return, the roster would then be complete reuniting some of the best players from the original Call of Duty days. Look for the Empath crew playing in CAL-IM this season and trying to get back in the groove.
