Struggles until late in loss
January 13, 2018
Replays was bad until the final round of the 0-3 loss to Lightning Pandaz on Day 2 of the CWL New Orleans Open.
The first two rounds of this match were completely forgettable for Replays. He, as did the rest of the team, struggle mightily in the beginning of Round 1 Hardpoint, but Replays never got out of it. As Attach and Priestah staged a comeback that fell just short, Replays continued to struggle. He continued his immense struggles into Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he was consistently outclassed by Lightning Pandaz, as they fell down 2-0. His best round was Round 3 Capture the Flag -- he slayed well both in the first half when FaZe was struggling, and despite forcing overtime, they were dropped in the sweep.
Nearly dominates the late-game
January 13, 2018
Replays struggled to find steady ground in a 3-1 loss to Team Kaliber on Day 1 of CWL New Orleans.
Replays just couldn't get any momentum going this series. Even when he did, it was a too little, too late. After a lackluster Round 1 Hardpoint, Replays' struggles became far more evident in Round 2 Search & Destroy where Replays went 0/9 KD. While he wasn't the reason FaZe Clan lost that round, he was certainly a contributing factor. Replays steadied himself in Round 4 Hardpoint, only to lose the round due to some bad calls. Replays secured late Scorestreaks thanks to an absurd 10 killstreak and used those streaks to secure the win, only for a massive whiff from ZooMa to unravel all his hard work.
Tries to carry his team to victory

Replays pulled out all the stops in a 1-3 loss to eUnited on Day 2 of the Northern Showdown.
Replays couldn't slay any hard for FaZe Clan. While he didn't have much of a presence in Round 1 Hardpoint, that completely turned around by Round 4 Hardpoint on Ardennes Forest. Replays dropped an obscene 42/23 KD thanks to an impossible 12 killstreak towards the end of the game. Even before that moment, Replays was firing on all cylinders and almost solely keeping FaZe Clan in the game. But despite some strong streaks, Replays smartly held his streaks until the third East Road Hardpoint in order to punish eUnited's positioning. Outside of streaks, FaZe Clan tied up the game before they lost the series due to some hectic fights.
Fails to slay out
December 17, 2017
Replays didn't make much of a presence in a 0-3 loss to Ground Zero on Day 1 of the Northern Showdown.
Replays, after a huge outing at CWL Dallas, didn't make much of an impact this game. This was largely because of FaZe Clan's strategy of hit-and-run tactics. Spreading themselves thin in order to hit their opponents from as many corners as possible in order to manipulate spawns, replays just couldn't find an opening. Ground Zero wisely bunched up to prevent replays or ZooMa from poking a hole in their defense. And while Replays excels in 1-vs-1 gunfights, he stumbles in a teamfights, the kind of battle Ground Zero excels in against FaZe Clan.
Directs his team to victory
December 11, 2017
Replays easily clutched a comeback victory over eUnited on Day 3 of CWL Dallas.
Replays was the main powerhouse behind FaZe Clan, providing both strong slaying and sound strategies. The spawn-focused eUnited turned out to be the perfect match for a battle-hardened Replays since the gauntlet of the Open Bracket and losers' bracket taught FaZe Clan to be extremely flexible. Keeping to the simple strategy of constant movement, Replays was able to hit eUnited's poorly defended flanks in Round 3 Capture the Flag and in Round 4 Hardpoint, while also confusing spawns. The latter was especially important to counter a spawn-focused team like eUnited. Not only that, Replays slayed extremely hard for his team in Round 2 Search and Destroy, scoring a 12/4 KD, and in Round 4 Hardpoint.
Officially joins FaZe Clan
November 2, 2017
Replays officially joined FaZe Clan, the organization announced on Thursday.
It was perhaps the worst kept secret of the entire Rostermania. After Enable left for Evil Geniuses and Gunless followed suit in a surprising decision to join Echo Fox, FaZe was left without two members of its 2017 Call of Duty World Championships roster. While Priestah, another new FaZe addition, provides plenty of offensive punch to this new iteration of team, the same can't necessarily be said for Replays, as he was kept in check in his last competitive stint with Echo Fox in the aforementioned 2017 CoD Champs. How FaZe Clan does this season will depend on if Replays can keep up with his three fast-paced teammates, and how the group as a whole will adapt to the boots-on-the-ground movement system that is returning for Call of Duty: World War II.
Leads with tricky strategies
August 10, 2017
Replays found small victories in a loss to OpTic Gaming in Group A on Day 2 of the CWL Championships.
Replays obviously did his homework on OpTic Gaming, even if it didn't secure him the win. Coming in, it was clear Replays knew he couldn't stand toe to toe with OpTic Gaming in the slaying department. So instead, he stole a page from Enigma6's playbook and played a scrappier game. Round 3 Uplink on Throwback was eerily reminiscent of Enigma6's playstyle as Replays was quick to scrap out dunks and throws on OpTic Gaming's pushes. Usually, this involved him stealing the drone before running it towards an empty goal. The second half saw Replays do just that with him, snatching the drone after MRuiz scored a dunk to rally a quick throw.
Qualifies for 2017 CoD World Champs
July 28, 2017
Replays and the rest of Echo Fox have qualified for the 2017 Call of Duty World Championships after finishing in the top eight of the North America Last Chance Qualifier.
The 2015 Call of Duty World Championship winner, Replays brings a sense of veteran leadership to a team that currently boasts two players who have yet to play in a World Championship. As a result, Echo Fox could be one of the more intriguing teams to come out of the Last Chance Qualifier.
