Taking home the trophy during the Call of Duty: Mobile Malaysia Championship 2021, Crackheads took everyone by surprise. They manage to take down former champion, Yoodo RSG, with a convincing 3:1 in the final score. Seeing their potential as a team, SEM9 extended an offer to team captain, Justin Chin a.k.a Smokii to be part of the organization. The offer was then gladly accepted after the team came to a unanimous decision. The team has already begun preparation for their debut in the world stage under a new banner of SEM9.
