Superior on defense
September 14, 2017
Maniac posted a 36/32 KD on Wednesday in a 1-1 split with HellRaisers in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
A solid start on the defense for Maniac took over the first half of Cache with an 8-3 lead. In Round 12, Maniac came up big for LDLC with a double kill on the A-bombsite retake in a 2-vs-2 post-plant situation to extend the score 9-3 before HellRaisers came back to settle the half 9-6 after winning three straight. After giving up the pistol round, Maniac won the first anti-eco round with a double pistol hold on the post-plant to secure the A-bombsite. From there, it was all defense as Maniac gave up only one more round in the 16-8 Game 1 win. With another smooth 3-0 start on Overpass, Maniac gave up two rounds to follow, but his Round 6 2-vs-2 pre-plant situation with a double pistol kill brought the lead within two rounds. Unfortunately, Maniac would only win one more round in the first half on defense for a 10-5 deficit. The second half was a 3-0 outing and a short comeback, but HellRaisers edged out with a 16-14 win.

ANALYSIS
Maniac remained poised in the Game 1 showing on Nuke for a crushing victory, posting an 18/11 KD and 80.7 ADR.

Though the second half was a slow start for Maniac, he contributed enough to close out with the three rounds needed for a 16-5 Game 1 win on Nuke. Game 2 Maniac found himself unable to find a hole in the Polish defense as he faced an early 0-6 deficit. However, with a little help from his teammates, Maniac rode on the comeback of Ex6tenZ's Round 12 win. Maniac opened the A-bombsite to even the score at the half down 7-8. The second half of Inferno leaned towards Maniac as he helped shut down the first two pushes from Virtus.pro on the B-bombsite for a 9-8 lead. Though Virtus.pro won a few rounds, Maniac stayed poised on the defense holding off the late rush from Virtus.pro's offense, but Maniac came out on top 16-13 posting a 19/18 KD and 71.6 ADR.

Parts ways with Rogue
October 14, 2016
Maniac will longer be a part of Rogue, reports Dennis Gonzales of theScore esports.
ANALYSIS
Despite being a founding member of Unity, which was then bought by Rogue, Maniac has decided to leave the team after it was determined that there was a difference in opinion. He and HS did not seem to gel with the team very well, and it was in the interest of all the parties to move along separately. v1c7oR and bubble will replace the duo, with the team hoping the new players will give some cohesion and allow them to get further along in their development.
