Echo Fox
Objective player throughout loss to LG
January 14, 2018
Assault took over more of an objective role in the 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming in the upper bracket semifinals at CWL New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
Assault really didn't do too much for Echo Fox in the eventual loss to Luminosity Gaming, with the shining moment coming during a seven-kill streak in Round 4 Hardpoint. A critical two-piece during Game 3 of Round 5 Search and Destroy helped Echo Fox stave off the reverse sweep for a moment, but it wasn't meant to be as EF was knocked into the lower bracket.
Rotates well to lock up series win
January 13, 2018
Assault was on top of his game during Echo Fox's 3-1 win against OpTic Gaming on Saturday in the Winners Bracket.
ANALYSIS
Assault and Echo Fox played incredibly well to down OpTic Gaming in a big matchup Saturday night. Right out the gate, Assault looked ready to battle. He racked up the most kills in the opening round and even though Echo Fox couldn't get the win in the round, it was a good start that they used to eventually wrestle away control of the series. Assault picked up two caps during Capture the Flag and then rotated very well during the last Hardpoint to put OpTic away in the 3-1 win.
Mostly struggles in bad loss
January 12, 2018
Assault had a hot start, but faded hard after round one in the 3-1 loss to eUnited on the opening day of the CWL New Orleans Open. The match was their first in pool play.
ANALYSIS
Assault was excellent in Round 1 Hardpoint, as was the rest of Echo Fox. They won the round 250-96, and looked like they were going to pose a real problem for the rest of the tournament. Assault was excellent, going 26/16 in the round. Both Assault and Echo Fox looked like they would run right through eUnited. However, they lost the next three rounds to lose the match. Assault was nowhere to be seen for the rest of the match. He struggled to keep up with a motivated eUnited in Round 2 Search & Destroy; teammate Saints was the only member of Echo Fox to play well in the round. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his worst round. He only managed 12 kills, and Echo Fox's offense was stifled by an excellent eUnited defense. They could not string any kills together, and could not push the flag forward at all. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Echo Fox get dominated for the majority of the round. Assault struggled yet again, and Echo Fox fell 250-175 -- and most of those points came in a push that happened far too late.
Fails to make an impact
December 17, 2017
Attach struggled to make his presence felt in a 2-3 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 1 of the Northern Showdown.
ANALYSIS
Outside of one round, Assault, like most of Echo Fox, failed to slay in this series. Echo Fox, however, couldn't turn their lackluster performance into a boon by not playing for gunfights but for spawn control. Even when Assault lost a fight, which was often, he would be back in the fray quickly thanks to favorable spawns. Only in Round 4 Hardpoint on Ardennes Forest was Assault able to bring the pain. Clutching late-game fight, Assault landed a triple kill that gave Echo Fox full and final control of the map.
Anchors his team's defense
December 9, 2017
Assault gives a solid, if subtle, performance in a win over Team EnVyUs on Day 2 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
While his teammates stole the spotlight, it was Assault who held his team together when things went sour. Assault acted as his team's anchor this series, a position that became oddly crucial this series. Since Echo Fox adopted a slow-burn, defensive strategy, holding spawn meant life-or-death for Assault's team. This meant Assault hung back with one simple goal in mind: stay alive. Assault did this and more. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Assault was able to post his team in a stubborn spawn position, while in Round 3 Capture the Flag this meant stopping every Team EnVyUs push for his team to spawn in.
Built as game went on
December 9, 2017
Assault got better with each round of the 3-0 sweep over Millennium to qualify for pool play at CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Assault took a backstage role in Round 1 Hardpoint, as Gunless and Faccento carried the load. Assault got them off on the right foot in Round 2 Search & Destroy by winning Game 1 for them, and kept his solid play up after that. Assault was a slaying machine in Round 3 Capture the Flag, notching double-digit kills in the first half. His strong slaying ability kept Millennium in check and allowed for the Echo Fox offense to thrive.
Completes Echo Fox
October 25, 2017
Assault will complete the new Echo Fox roster, which was announced on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Assault likely adds the most potential to Echo Fox, with Saints, Gunless and Faccento largely established stars in their own right. While Assault hasn't necessarily reached the same level of his teammates, despite being on relatively stout teams throughout the last two years, he should be one of the main slayers on Echo Fox, and as as a result, be in a position to improve his stock as a player.
Free Agent
Announces free agency along with rest of Cloud9
August 21, 2017
Assault will join a loaded free agency pool heading into the new season, the player tweeted on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Perhaps its not much of a surprise, given Cloud9's uneven performance throughout the year, but it's still a little jarring to see the entirety of the roster hit free agency on Sunday. Besides Aches, Assault figures to be the Cloud9 free agent most likely to join another squad in the coming weeks, as his slaying skill hasn't waned despite obvious cohesion issues with the other members. With advanced movement now seemingly a thing in the past, it will be interesting to see how Assault transitions to boots on the ground. That being said, raw slaying power tends to win out in most situations, so it wouldn't be a shock to see Assault carry over his success into the next iteration of the game.
Does his best in rough loss
August 12, 2017
Assault put together a 92/78 KD in Cloud9's loss to Ghost Gaming on Friday that knocked them to the losers bracket during the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Assault was the only member of Cloud9 who managed to fall in line with Priestah, who was doing it all for C9 in this series. He opened with a big objective-focused performance in Round 1 Hardpoint, but with a couple of his teammates pulling in under a minute of time on the point, they couldn't pick up the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a different story, however, as they were playing much better in this round to get the win. The only problem was that the S&D round was their only shining light, as the rest of the rounds saw C9 unable to use much team cohesion to pick up the win.
Strong respawns in loss
August 11, 2017
Assault played well in respawn, but Cloud9 were still swept by Epsilon eSports on Day 3 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss saw Cloud9 get eliminated from competition.
ANALYSIS
Assault was very good in Round 1 Hardpoint -- but Cloud9 still lost the round. They felt behind early, 160-30, but fought back a bit. They made it 200-111, but they still fell to Epsilon. Assault had a huge game, going 26/17 with 1:17 on the objective; it was buoyed by a nine-streak as they were fighting back. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Assault provide the only other offense outside of Priestah, notching the final kill in Game 7. They lost the round 6-3. Round 3 Uplink saw Cloud9 lead 8-5 with two minutes left, and blow the lead to lose. Assault had two points and a 27/23 KD in the loss.
Run-of-the-mill performance dooms Cloud9
August 11, 2017
Assault phoned in his performance against Enigma6 on Day 2 of the CWL Championships, only breaking even in KD most games and ultimately having an overall KD of 71/80.
ANALYSIS
Assault may have been spared the brunt of Enigma6's relentless attacks, as his break-even KD scores indicated, but Assault has to take advantage of openings if he is to help his team survive. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Assault go barely negative with a KD of 20/21, but while he had the best KD of his team that round he failed to take advantage. Assault would be the last to go down in an anti-climactic Game 9 during Round 2 Search & Destroy, breaking even in KD with 6/6. Even during Round 3 Uplink, when Cloud9 collectively showed some spirit, Assault would only break even in KD once again with 24/24, failing to score any points. Finally, Assault would be put out of his average misery in Round 4 Hardpoint, where he'd go quite negative with a KD of 21/29, running out of steam and dooming Cloud9 to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Enigma6. Assault is capable of much better than this.
Beats down Rogue in dominating fashion
August 10, 2017
Assault earned a solid KD of 93/69 in Cloud9's win vs Rogue on Wednesday at Call of Duty World Championship 2017.
ANALYSIS
Assault had a phenomenal series for Cloud9, starting with a dominating Game 1 on Scorch. Decimating Rogue before it could sniff its first Hardpoint capture, Assault and his 28/20 KD led C9 to a lead of over 100+ points in an eventual Game 1 stomp. Assault cooled down significantly in Game 2 on Breakout, where Cloud9 suffered a 4-6 loss, but Assault came storming back in Game 3 on Throwback. Assault was a threat with and around the ball, as he went on a beatdown spree while scoring seven of Cloud9's 11 points in the 11-4 stomp. In the final Hardpoint game on Retaliation, Assault continued to shine as a killing machine, picking up a 30/20 KD to close out the 3-1 series win.
Flops in a key series
July 24, 2017
Assault whiffs some big plays with an 83/84 in a loss to Team EnVyUS on Day 3 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
Assault pulled the spotlight play this weekend, but the only problem was it was a shocking mishap. Round 3 Uplink on Frost was a strange game for both sides. The map became a war of attrition, with both sides waiting for their Payloads. After Team EnVyUs got three points on the board, Assault seemed prime to tie the game. He took the drone, ready to use his Active Camo and run around the submarine pit waiting for his team to clear lanes. But once the fight was over, Assault failed to get up from the pit and instead fell of the map with his Payload and the drone. He did the same exact play again in the next 10 seconds, complete with the suicide, whiffing a game-changing play not once, but twice.
Plays a little too slow
July 23, 2017
Assault plays methodically with a 72/75 KD in a loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 2 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
Assault continues to play closely with Aches, for better or worse. Once again taking a more background role in the team, Assault played closer to the backlines. Along with Xotic, he held spawns while Aches attempted to slay out. While this worked in Round 1 Hardpoint when Aches could beam his shots, it became a problem in later rounds. Round 3 Uplink and Round 4 Hardpoint saw Cloud9 struggle when no one on the team could drop the numbers they needed to against OpTic Gaming. Breaking the Green Wall demands perfection, which Cloud9 struggled to do. Assault closed Round 4 Hardpoint with a 20/24 KD.
Solid respawn in loss
July 22, 2017
Assault played well enough in the respawn rounds, but Cloud9 were still swept by Team EnVyUs on Day 2 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a heartbreaking 250-237 loss, with Assault and Aches leading the team for most of the round. They were trading leads with Team EnVyUs throughout the entire round. Assault was not a big objective player, notching 56 seconds, but he did go 26/21. He was key in why they were even close in the first place. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw the other two members of Cloud9, Xotic and Priestah, lead the offense, by they were still wholly outplayed, losing 6-3. Round 3 Uplink saw Assault play rather well. He went 26/25, but did not do much on the drone, scoring zero points in the 8-4 loss.
