Finds new roster ahead of the CWL Seattle Open
April 18, 2018
Maux will join a new roster, Vast eSports, ahead of the CWL Seattle Open.
ANALYSIS
Maux will continue to team with Proto, who was on the roster that failed to qualify for Stage 1 relegation after losing two of its first three online qualifier games, but he'll add Theory and Nagafen this go around. It's a roster that should be in contention for a pool play spot, but they'll have to fight through the ever tumultuous open bracket in order to do it.
Free Agent
Unable to qualify for Stage 1 relegation
April 16, 2018
Maux did not qualify for Stage 1 relegation after his new team finished in 9th-12th place.
ANALYSIS
After being released from Ghost Gaming, Maux caught on with a couple of roster stragglers in the form of Proto and StuDyy, but the pieced-together roster predictably failed to do much losing two of its three online qualifier games. It's tough to decide if Maux will continue to team with this roster moving forward or if the failure will ultimately force the team to dissolve.
Restricted free agent
April 11, 2018
Maux is listed as a restricted free agent according to his personal Twitter account, which was updated on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The Ghost Gaming slayer is free to pursue other opportunities, but given the amount of other players available during this abbreviated Rostermania, you have to wonder which team he might be able to catch on with. A capable slayer, Maux should have potential suitors, but it would be a genuine surprise to see him fetch interest from any team's currently in the Pro League, particularly with so much talent available in free agency at the moment.
Inconsistent in sweep loss
March 10, 2018
Maux had a great end, but an iffy beginning, to the sweep loss to Team Kaliber on Day 2 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Maux had a rough first two rounds in this match. Round 1 Hardpoint was a terrible 250-113 loss that was even worse than it seems -- their big push came when Team Kaliber were seconds away from victory. Maux went 20/25 and barely spent any time on the objective (10 seconds), in the bad loss. His bad play continued into Round 2 Search & Destroy, as he went without kills in the first five games. He picked it up a bit after, but it was still a poor round overall. His best round came in Round 3 Capture the Flag. He had 15 kills in the first half, dominating the map and helping keep the round 1-1. He and Lacefield carried the load into overtime, but they could not keep themselves alive.
Rejoins Ghost Gaming after spurning Next Threat
January 24, 2018
Maux will remain on Ghost Gaming with Lacefield, and has brought on two new teammates in GodRx and Pandur to round out the roster.
ANALYSIS
Maux was originally expected to go to Next Threat and join Censor's recreated team, but once SpaceLy was released from Ghost Gaming, it appeared as if Maux earned full control over the roster. As a result, the slayer will stick around with the money-infused Ghost Gaming organization, which will attempt to qualify for Stage 2 of the CWL Pro League, by virtue of climbing through the CWL North American National Circuit.
Candidate for free agency
January 21, 2018
Maux will become a free agent and is expected to leave Ghost Gaming, the player reported on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
While Maux is still technically contracted by Ghost Gaming, the slayer is expected to leave the organization following a disappointing start to Call of Duty: World War II, in which the team did not qualify for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
Unable to lead Ghost past EG
December 9, 2017
Maux tried his best, but Ghost Gaming was still bested by Evil Geniuses in a 3-1 series on Day 2 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Maux assumed the leadership role on this team and did an admirable job of trying to lead them to victory in this series. He kept Ghost calm and collected during a massive comeback in Search & Destroy that saw the team erase an 0-5 deficit, but after that it was all EG as Ghost looked gassed in the final rounds. They'll need to pick themselves up throughout the rest of Saturday in order to reverse their fortunes here in Dallas.
Support in loss
August 12, 2017
Maux was a background character in the 3-1 loss to Rise Nation on Day 4 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss saw Ghost Gaming's Loser's Bracket run end, eliminating them from competition.
ANALYSIS
Maux was hardly involved in the slaying in Round 1 Hardpoint. Ghost Gaming utterly dominated, winning 250-150, and Maux had a strong 1:21 on the objective, but he only had a KD of 10/10. He laid back, let his teammates do the heavy lifting, and he just lapped up the Hardpoint time. They lost three rounds after that, however. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Maux get the final kill in Game 2, but that would be the only game they won in the round. It was a poor round by Ghost. Round 3 Uplink was a wild 18-10 loss -- there was, obviously, a plethora of offense. Despite that, Maux hardly got involved in it. He went 21/24, with only two points -- almost impressive, considering the level of offense in the round. Round 4 Hardpoint was a heartbreaking loss. Ghost lost 250-229, after being tied with Rise Nation at 228. Maux lagged behind the rest, going 15/18 with 59 seconds on the objective, as Ghost Gaming saw their championship run fall short.
Good effort to stay alive
August 12, 2017
Maux finished with an 81/75 KD during Saturday's 3-1 victory over Enigma6 at the CWL Championship.
ANALYSIS
Maux didn't have a ton of highlight moments throughout the match, but he started things off nicely with a 31/24 KD and 1:52 of hill time in Round 1 Hardpoint. His 6/8 mark in Round 2 Search & Destroy wasn't great, but rebounded with seven points and a respectable 21/23 KD in Round 3 Uplink. He also provided a two-piece to clear the path for a teammate to score a dunk as Ghost Gaming rolled to a 2-1 series lead. Maux daringly pulled out the DMR early in Round 4 Hardpoint and it paid off as the team held the Bridge hill. The team fended off a charge from Enigma6 on the map to earn a 3-1 victory and stay alive at the Championship.
Slow going in tough loss
August 12, 2017
Maux only managed a forgettable 44/58 KD in Ghost Gaming's loss against Team EnVyUs on Saturday to be knocked to the lower bracket at Call of Duty Champs 2017.
ANALYSIS
Maux and Ghost looked like they were going to be on point once again at the start of this series, but once they fell into a bit of a hole, they simply kept sinking further and further in. While Round 1 Hardpoint was a bit rough, things only got worse from the on. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a mess from start to finish for Ghost. It seemed like they never found any sort of groove in what looks to be one of their worst modes of the week. That wouldn't be so bad if they managed to show up in Uplink rounds, as well. While they've done that at times this week, this wasn't one of those times. Maux picked up a dunk early on, but they couldn't stop John from getting a last second throw-in with under 10 second left to pick up the round. They'll now have to battle with Enigma6 to stay alive in Orlando.
Slays with the best of them
August 12, 2017
Maux finished Ghost Gaming's win over Cloud9 in the Round of 16 at Call of Duty Champs 2017 with a stellar 93/76 KD.
ANALYSIS
Maux was living right all throughout this series, as he always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to allow Ghost plenty of breathing room. Well, that may not be completely true. He was an abysmal 1/8 in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but when you consider that he was still a plus-17 even with that performance, it looks even better. He was the main catalyst to open up lanes in which his teammates could easily maneuver around the map all series against Cloud9. This meant that Lacefield in Round 1 Hardpoint and SpaceLy in Round 4 Hardpoint could easily secure strong rotations to pick up the wins in those rounds. He even managed to clutch up in Round 3 Uplink, dunking between two players to keep his team ahead. If Ghost keeps playing like this, they will be a big threat throughout the weekend.
Good in respawn in Pool G win
August 11, 2017
Maux had a strong respawn showing in the 3-1 win over Splyce on Day 2 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The win clinched first place in their Pool, giving them the top seed for the playoffs Friday.
ANALYSIS
Maux had a nice game from the get-go -- if you ignore the 6-1 shellacking in Round 2 Search & Destroy that saw Ghost Gaming get crushed. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Maux be a key part of the well-oiled Ghost machine that stayed one step ahead of their opponents the entire time. He had 22 kills (19 deaths) with 1:24 on the objective, in the easy 250-163 win. Round 3 Uplink amended their second round loss with a 8-3 win. Maux was very good, going 29/20 with three of his team's points. Round 4 Hardpoint saw them fight back from a game-long deficit with Maux helping lead the charge. He got them close for the first time in the 220 range, and they ran that momentum to a victory.
Stellar slaying performance in playoff-clinching win
August 10, 2017
Maux put up a ridiculous 90/67 KD in Ghost Gaming's 3-1 win against Team Kaliber in Pool G on Day 2 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. With the win, Ghost are through to the playoffs in Orlando.
ANALYSIS
Maux was the driving force behind Ghost's big win here on Thursday. He opened up with a huge showing in terms of objectives in Round 1 Hardpoint, picking up a whopping 2:18 on the point. This easily helped his team lock up the win in the round. From then on, he continued to pour in the kills, even in the Round 2 Search & Destroy loss. This was especially helpful in Round 3 Uplink to keep paths open for his teammates to take the drone into the point. With him opening up paths all over the map there and in Round 4 Hardpoint, it was a cinch for Ghost to pick up the win and lock in their playoff spot.
Tests out new strategies against Enigma6
July 9, 2017
Maux was on point in trying out new things to defeat the enemies of Ghost Gaming, and they seem to have worked considering his team's victory over Enigma6 on Day 2 of Group Blue and his overall KD of 78/72.
ANALYSIS
Maux had some tricks up his sleeve in store for Enigma6, and for the most part his plans seem to have worked. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Maux clearly had a plan in mind as he deployed Trophy Systems left and right to defuse whatever grenades Enigma6 would throw into the Hardpoints. While Ghost Gaming still lost that round, Maux wound up the only player with a positive KD for Ghost Gaming that round at 24/24. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, while he did get a respectable KD of 6/4, his greatest moment wasn't a kill but a bomb defusal at the very end, where he defused the enemy bomb while Royalty from Enigma6 was still alive. Maux had some more surprises in store in Round 3 Uplink, for he helped SpaceLy score the massive amount of points he did by passing the ball to him from unexpected angles, such as over a building - all this while scoring a 28/22 KD. And lastly, during Round 4 Hardpoint, he tried out weapons no other player tried before, such as a DMR-1 sniper rifle and a TAR grenade, which certainly worked out for his team, even though Maux himself only got a 20/22 KD that round.
Dominant in win
July 9, 2017
Maux had a dominant performance in the sweep win over eLevate on day 2 of Group Blue.
ANALYSIS
Maux was strong from Round 1 Hardpoint. He was part of a three-headed attack in the round, being one of three members to notch over 30 kills, ending the round with 33. He also notched 1:04 on the objective, in what proved to be an unstoppable attack. Maux had the final kill in Games 4 and 5, putting Ghost Gaming up 5-0. They eventually won 6-2. Round 3 Uplink saw Maux lead their team, alongside Llama. He went 27/18, with four points. He kept his team close in the first half, and allowed his team to run away with it in the second.
