Feels the exhaustion of a long series
February 16, 2018
Evil Geniuses found their nemesis on Day 5 of the CWL Pro League Division B in UNILAD, and even though they found an eventual 3-2 victory, the length of the series took its toll on NAMELESS' numbers.
ANALYSIS
The series between Evil Geniuses and UNILAD was a long, bloody battle with many casualties on both sides, and at least for a time, NAMELESS looked like he couldn't keep up as he was scoring consistently negative KDs through the series up to the end. Round 1 Hardpoint, for instance, saw NAMELESS chalk up a barely negative KD of 23/27, and the least hardpoint control time of his team at 50 seconds. Round 2 Search & Destroy again saw NAMELESS hardly miss a positive KD with 6/7, and he had almost no interactions with the bomb. At least in Round 3 Capture the Flag he managed to score a flag capture, even as his KD suffered significantly with 15/27. The Evil Geniuses were collectively feeling the exhaustion of a long series when they were put in the 100-point club by UNILAD during Round 4 Hardpoint, and NAMELESS just narrowly avoided a positive KD yet again with 29/31. Thankfully, NAMELESS was able to clutch a Game 11 in Round 5 Search & Destroy with a 10/9 KD, taking out UNILAD's Skrapz to win the series in dramatic fashion.
Solid respawn in win
February 14, 2018
NAMELESS had good respawn rounds as Evil Geniuses swept eUnited in their CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1 match on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
NAMESSLESS was not in the spotlight in Round 1 Hardpoint, but he played well and was a big reason why they won the round. He had a solid 27 kills (although he died 26 times) but his big contribution came on the objective. He had 1:34 of Hardpoint time, second on his team and third in the lobby. He was not flashy, but he kept adding Hardpoint time on a consistent basis. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him play in support, but everyone did outside of Apathy. Apathy had a 16/2 KD in the round, and the rest just picked up what he could not. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him put together his best round. He and Apathy were the team leaders, with NAMELESS providing two of their three flag caps, and Apathy providing strong defense. Without NAMELESS, they did not have the offense to come back from their first-half deficit.
Mostly bad in sweep loss
February 7, 2018
NAMELESS had one good round in the sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming that finished off the Tuesday portion of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was NAMELESS' only quality round, and that still was not enough to prevent the sweep. He had the final kills in Games 2 and 3. Without him, they likely would have lost the round well before they reached Game 11 like they did on Tuesday. Round 1 Hardpoint was a blowout of epic proportions, with Evil Geniuses losing 250-83. NAMELESS really struggled, as one would expect. It was a complete performance by Luminosity Gaming. Round 3 Capture the Flag was much closer, with Evil Geniuses losing 1-0 in a round that saw a flurry of offense despite the single flag cap. NAMELESS, however, struggled to do much of anything, going 16/19 in the exciting but frustrating loss.
Finds a foothold in an off-putting series
February 6, 2018
NAMELESS powered through a tough 3-2 win over Epsilon eSports on Day 2 of the CWL Pro League Stage 1, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Epsilon eSports gave NAMELESS a much harder time than he could have ever predicted. This was clear early into Round 1 Hardpoint where, despite his teammates streaking, often found himself in extremely difficult fights that he'd find ways to clutch. In the second Winery Hardpoint, NAMELESS helped secure his team's victory by scoring a triple kill that stole spawn rotations from Epsilon eSports. But, he slowly faded into the hectic background as both Enable and Aches stepped into the spotlight.
On fire from the start
December 9, 2017
NAMELESS came up big to push Evil Geniuses to a 3-1 victory over Ghost Gaming on Day 2 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
When NAMELESS opened the first round with a six streak, you just had a feeling that this was going to be an Evil Genius win. Ghost Gaming tried to make it interesting with a big comeback, but Nameless and his team were easily able to take down Ghost in the final two games. He was particularly strong in Capture the Flag where he started off with a 12/7 KD in what ended up as a close 1-0 win.
Officially re-signs with Evil Geniuses
September 22, 2017
NAMELESS and his team of Aches, Enable and Apathy will be playing under the Evil Geniuses banner to begin the new competitive season.
ANALYSIS
It's official -- one of the most popular organizations in all of esports will be gaining by far the most interesting roster to surface from Rostermania thus far. For many, how the four former in-game leaders gel together will be the main talking point heading into the season, as the sheer talent of this roster has on par with some of the top teams in the world. Given Aches' knowledge of the game, a move to "boots on the ground" should be beneficial for the veteran player, with NAMELESS also receiving a boost in value depending on how he will be utilized moving forward.
Free Agent
Expected to join a new lineup
August 30, 2017
NAMELESS will team with Aches, Enable and Apathy for the start of Call of Duty: World War II, his new teammate announced on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
This is an intriguing combination for a variety of reasons. For one, the group does not currently have an organization, and it would make some sense to see the lineup transition over to Evil Geniuses, with just Nagafen and NAMELESS remaining as the lone holdovers following a disappointing 2017 campaign. At least in that sense, the brand recognition would match the talent being acquired. This roster will also see three former in-game leaders come together, with Apathy essentially also sharing that role with Jkap on Team EnVyUs. History has shown us that a combination of fiery leaders hasn't always worked wonders, but it seems like the foursome has a healthy level of respect for one another, which could help smooth over conflicts. With all that being said, this is very clearly one of the better teams that could have formed in the wake of a massive Rostermania, and as a result, this new lineup could very well be one of the best teams to start the competitive season.
Best KD not enough to avoid elimination
August 10, 2017
Nameless posted the best KD of the team during Thursday's Pool F loss to Fnatic, ending the game with a 51/50 KD.
ANALYSIS
A nondescript Round 1 Hardpoint from Nameless seemed to ignite the in-game leader, as he was the only one on Evil Geniuses to pick up multiple kills through the first few rounds of Round 2 Search and Destroy. While that wasn't enough to help Evil Geniuses secure the round win, Nameless nearly single-handley helped his team secure Round 3 Uplink, posting a 33/23 KD, including a whopping 21 kills in the first half. However, the individual performance wasn't enough as Fnatic was able to rally in the final seconds to win the Uplink, officially knocking Evil Geniuses out of the Call of Duty World Championship.
Fails to steady his game
August 9, 2017
NAMELESS floundered in a tough loss to Str8 Rippin on Day 1 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
NAMELESS dropped StuDy so he can build a more consistent team, only for Evil Geniuses' lineup to lose to StuDy because of a lack of consistency. Key to the loss was NAMELESS who couldn't be counted on dropping the same numbers round to round. This was very clear from Round 1 Hardpoint to Round 3 Uplink where NAMELESS dropped negative KDs, but his Round 1 Hardpoint KD was far better. With KDs becoming increasingly important, NAMELESS needs to iron out his team's rough sights in order to continue in the tournament.
Solid slayer in win
July 2, 2017
NAMELESS had a good slaying day in the 3-1 win over Mindfreak on Day 3 of Group Red.
ANALYSIS
NAMELESS had a big game in Round 1 Hardpoint, but it did not amount to a win. He was one of the reasons why they were close, and why they nearly pulled out the win. He went 32/32 with 1:27 on the objective in the first round. He had the final kill in Game 2 in a tough Round 2 Search & Destroy win that went the full 11 games. NAMELESS was a solid contributor in what as an incredibly balanced four-man attack in Round 3 Uplink. All of Evil Geniuses had at least 24 kills or three points in what was an incredible team effort. NAMELESS was rather quiet in Round 4 Hardpoint, as Havok and Nagafen were the leaders of the pack. NAMELESS was 18/18, with 1:17 on the objective, in the match winning round.
Good early game in win
July 2, 2017
NAMELESS started off well, but Evil Geniuses lost 3-2 to Luminosity Gaming to cap off Day 2 of Group Red.
ANALYSIS
NAMELESS was steadily good in a roller-coaster Round 1 Hardpoint that saw Evil Geniuses fall to an early 100-33 deficit, and nearly come back before Luminosity finished off the win. NAMELESS was solid throughout, going 36/31 and providing 1:01 on the objective -- his steady play allowed for the comeback to be possible. He had two kills in Game 3 of Round 2 Search & Destroy, which helped fuel the game win. They went on to win the round 6-2. NAMELESS did not slay very well in Round 3 Uplink, notching a KD of 25/27. He did, however, notch a huge second half dunk to push the score to 4-1. He made it a two-score game, and Luminosity did not have the offense to score twice. Evil Geniuses would get crushed in the final two rounds, however, though NAMELESS was not completely to blame. Round 4 Hardpoint was simply a blow out, as Evil Geniuses lost 250-57. It was never close. NAMELESS went 11/19. It was bad throughout for them. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw NAMELESS play well, but he was the only member of Evil Geniuses to play well, as they lost 6-1, losing the match.
Can't catch up to his teammats
July 1, 2017
Nameless lags behind his team with a 37/55 KD in a win over Mindfreak on Day 2 of Group Red.
ANALYSIS
While Evil Geniuses was able to defeat Mindfreak 3-0, Nameless struggled to find his momentum in what became a tight series. Round 1 Hardpoint on Retaliation started especially poor for Nameless, scoring an 11/24 KD. While he tried to fix his poor performance by hanging back and defending points, Nameless couldn't do much since he couldn't land his shots. Round 3 Uplink on Frost finally saw Nameless come out of his slump. The map favored Nameless' playstyle as it allowed him to challenge quickly around tight corners.
Struggles to slay hard
June 30, 2017
Nameless can't catch up to Luminosity Gaming with a 73/87 KD in a loss on Day 1 of Group Red.
ANALYSIS
The entire series was an uphill battle for Evil Geniuses. Coming hot off of a loss to Fnatic, Evil Geniuses' luck only worsened in a devastating stomp in Round 1 Hardpoint on Breakout. Nameless and his crew trickled off of points and into fights, resulting in his team failing to secure a double-digit score by the second set of rotations. However, Nameless would quickly step up. Round 2 Search & Destroy would see Nameless play smart, holding corners or rushing from odd angles to pin down a slow Luminosity Gaming. Similarly, Nameless played safer going into Round 3 Uplink and Round 4 Hardpoint. While this did help Nameless score a steady KD, it wasn't strong enough for him and his teammates to close the leads Luminosity Gaming snowballed, especially in Round 4 Hardpoint.
Strong late game in win
June 17, 2017
NAMELESS had a great last round, and help spurn Evil Geniuses to a 3-2 win over FaZe Clan to finish off Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Nagafen and Havok were the stars on Round 1 Hardpoint, but NAMELESS played a key support role in the round. He chipped in 20 kills and 52 seconds on the objective. It was not a highlight reel-filled performance, but he was certainly solid, and key to the win. He got the final kill in Game 6 of Round 2 Search & Destroy, but it was not with his gun -- he planted the bomb, and Attach got there (literally) a second too late, and could not defuse it. Other than that, he was stifled in the Game 11 loss. Round 3 Uplink saw NAMELESS lack any scoring touch, but was key for opening up the map for his team. He led the lobby with 29 kills, and he was consistent with his gunplay throughout. He was a pillar for them in the round, and it allowed his teammates to take risks with the drone, en route to a 9-5 win. His worst round game in Round 4 Hardpoint, which was Evil Geniuses' most frustrating loss. They had a comfortable lead early on, but Enable went off, and FaZe Clan pulled off an impressive comeback. NAMELESS struggled to run with FaZe Clan, going 28/35, with 44 seconds on the objective. He was tied for lowest kill total on the team, and was the only member of Evil Geniuses to put up less than a minute on the objective. However, he would turn it around in Round 5 Search & Destroy, as he notched the final kill in Games 1 and 2 -- Evil Geniuses turned that into a 5-0 lead, and eventually a win in nine games.
Search & Destroy leader
May 27, 2017
NAMELESS had one great round, but otherwise was average at best in the crushing 3-1 loss to eUnited to get eliminated on the second day of the Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was excellent for NAMELESS. He had the final kill in Game 1, three of the four kills in Game 2, and incredible showing in the decisive Game 11. In that final game, NAMELESS rattled off two kills, activated his Active Camo, got the third kill, and won the round. It was an excellent display. However, the other three rounds saw Evil Geniuses get absolutely outclassed by eUnited, and NAMELESS was largely no exception. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 19/29 in a 250-111 loss. Round 3 Uplink saw him go 23/28 in a 14-1 loss. In Round 4 Hardpoint, NAMELESS led his team with a 19/19 KD, but they lost 250-64. It was an absolute drubbing by eUnited, and it would look even worse for Evil Geniuses if NAMELESS did not win three of the necessary six games in Round 2 Search & Destroy.
