He took a short break from CS:GO and came back in 2013 when compLexity was formed.

He made his debut as a commentator and analyst during the ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 Finals on December 10th, 2015. In January 2016 Sean returned to competitive play creating a roster with Mohamad m0E Assad. Torqued would later be picked up by Echo Fox where Sean would try to perfect a roster with ex-teammate Ryan fREAKAZOiD Abadir. After less than a year under the Echo Fox banner the team would fold. Sean went to Team SoloMid with Shahzeeb ShahZaM Khan. Sean lasted less than 10 days in the organisation after a dispute occurred between Sean and the owner of Team SoloMid. The team would leave the organisation and Sean and co would form under the banner of Misfits.

After the loss of Russel Twistzz Van Dulken the team decided to bring in French pug stars François AmaNEk Delauney and David devoduvek Dobrosavljevic. The team would go through it's ups and downs. During the ESL/Pro League/Season 6/Finals the team would have a miracle run losing to the #1 team at the time in SK Gaming. They would finish 3rd-4th. The team's ESL/Pro League/Season 6/Finals Run was not backed up at the first major of 2018. The team would be knocked out in the challenger stage. Sean would announce days later that he along with his American teammates that they were released from the roster and the disbandment of Misfits and their exit from the scene was finalized. Sean would go on to be the analyst at the Legends stage at the ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018 and do other small analyst jobs becoming a crowd favorite.
