Will not compete rest of year
May 3, 2018
NAMELESS will not compete during the rest of Call of Duty: World War II, and could very well retire after he was unable to qualify for Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
It makes sense that NAMELESS will be stepping aside for the foreseeable future, given he likely would have been forced to play through the National Circuit the rest of the season had he chosen to stick around. Given he has a lucrative fallback option as a caster/analyst for CWL events, the decision was probably for the best, which he alluded to in his "retirement" post.

Does not qualify for Stage 1 relegation
April 16, 2018
NAMELESS did not qualify for Stage 1 relegation after his team placed 9th-12th in the online qualifier.
ANALYSIS
NAMELESS could simply be joking, but it appears he might join the broadcast team at the CWL Seattle Open after his cobbled together team, which consisted of Theory, Maux and SpaceLy, lost in the opening round of the upper bracket, then again in the second of the lower bracket. The veteran slayer had been released by Evil Geniuses earlier in the week, essentially forcing NAMELESS to scramble for a new roster ahead of a pivotal qualifier. It's likely that NAMELESS will continue competing following the CWL Seattle Open, but it seems increasingly the next time we may seem him compete is at the Call of Duty World Championships in August.
Likely to hit free agency
April 10, 2018
NAMELESS, on Tuesday, announced he is a "restricted" free agent entering CWL Seattle Open.
ANALYSIS
It's an interesting notation, as we've seen in the past restricted free agency could mean the player is willing to sign back with the organization, albeit with different teammates, or free to pursue another roster if the decision makes sense. It feels like more of the latter case for NAMELESS, who hasn't exactly performed up to expectations since joining Evil Geniuses at the start of Call of Duty: World War II. If NAMELESS is afforded the opportunity to run a SMG on his new lineup, it could be a solid decision, if only to get him off the AR, which he struggled to consistently wield in a submachine gun-heavy meta.
Pretty invisible in loss
March 30, 2018
NAMELESS struggled to make any impact in the 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 1 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
This match was far from NAMELESS' best performance, outside of his very late-game performance in Round 4 Hardpoint. He emerged as the second-best player for Evil Geniuses in the round, finally giving Aches some support and making it a legitimately close round. While they ended up losing the round, and in turn the series, NAMELESS got them close to a fifth round. The rest of his performance saw him struggle to slay consistently, even in their sole round win in Round 3 Capture the Flag. He did not find any consistency in his gunplay until that fourth round, and by then it was too late for Evil Geniuses.
One good round in loss
March 22, 2018
NAMELESS had a good first round, and nothing else, in the 3-1 loss to Splyce on Day 2 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
NAMELESS had an excellent Round 1 Hardpoint. He was their most prolific slayer, going 38/24, and was a consistent thorn in Splyce's side. They did not have an answer for his slaying, and those slays were key in giving Evil Geniuses consistently good map position. However, the rest of his performance saw him struggle, as Splyce won three rounds in a row to win the match. His first round performance was great, but a 13/19 Round 3 Capture the Flag, and a 31/35 Round 4 Hardpoint showing, with a middling Round 2 Search & Destroy, made his first round disappear.
Hovers around average in loss
March 16, 2018
NAMELESS hardly had a banner performance in the 3-1 loss to FaZe Clan on Day 2 of Week 3 of CWL Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
NAMELESS, for the most part, had a middling performance. Round 1 Hardpoint is a pretty good example of that. He had a nice 1:16 on the objective, alongside 29 kills, but he also died 32 times. That amount of death hurts his overall stock, even if the rest of his performance was solid. He had a nearly identical 31/33 KD in Round 4 Hardpoint, but he really struggled on the objective, jut netting 16 seconds there. The kills were nice, but the rest was lacking, and in a round that saw them lose 250-226, the Hardpoint time was necessary. His biggest moments came in Round 2 Search & Destroy. He was a key reason why they managed to get to four wins. After falling down 5-1, he and Aches went on a tear to win three straight games, making the deficit 5-4. They could not pull off the comeback, but it was a valiant effort. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his worst round. He only managed 10 kills, staying rather uninvolved in the 3-1 win. As his 10/15 KD suggests, he was invisible in their lone round win.
Makes a name for himself against Team EnVyUs
March 15, 2018
NAMELESS was certainly taking names as he handily shut down Team EnVyUs at almost every significant turn in a 3-0 win on Wednesday in the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
At the very end of this series, one of the casters exclaimed: "Nameless is a god!" Looking at the statline for Nameless during this game, it's easy to see why. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Nameless's 1:43 of hardpoint control time, the most of his team, was instrumental in keeping the game close and eventually eking out ahead of Team EnVyUs, despite being outslayed with a negative KD of 25/27. Nameless further cemented his divine status in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he helped his team win the round 6-3 while earning a positive KD of 6/5. The real apotheosis came in Round 3 Capture the Flag for Nameless as he prevented a last-second flag capture by Team EnVyUs in a heroic manner, earning Evil Geniuses the 4-3 victory.
Falls apart late in loss
March 9, 2018
NAMELESS had two great rounds, but fell apart at the end of the sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
NAMELESS had two great rounds despite two frustrating losses in the first two rounds. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Evil Geniuses hold the lead for a long time before a mid round push by Luminosity left them in the dust. NAMELESS was excellent on an individual level, though, going 34/26 in the round. His slaying stayed strong even as their lead fell apart and Luminosity mounted their nice comeback. Round 2 Search & Destroy was the same story. NAMELESS was great, but Evil Geniuses blew a lead and lost in 11 games. After those two tough losses, Evil Geniuses just did not have the energy to compete in Round 3 Capture the Flag, and it showed. They were down 3-0 early on, and the round was basically over within minutes. NAMELESS was invisible in the round, limping to defeat.
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.

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.
