Echo Fox
Strong opening rounds in loss
May 16, 2018
Aqua had a hot start in this match, but Echo Fox still fell to Team Kaliber on Day 1 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Aqua had a very strong first two rounds in this match. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him play a very strong two-way game, getting 35 kills and 1:40 on the objective in the round. Despite the strong games from him, Temp, and Faccento, Team Kaliber still managed to pull off a comeback. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Aqua carry Echo Fox in the early stages of the round. Saints picked him up late, and the two combined got them to their 11-game win. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him get his team's first flag cap en route to a 2-1 win. Aqua was great early on in the Round 4 Hardpoint loss, but faltered to a 28/35 KD performance, with less than a minute on the hill. The final round, Round 5 Search & Destroy, saw him play well early on, but Team Kaliber proved to be too much for them.
Beats Team Kaliber into a pulp
April 22, 2018
Aqua ripped through Team Kaliber in a 3-2 win on Sunday at CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Aqua continued to be the essential slaying force for Echo Fox. Going up against the blistering-fast Team Kaliber, Aqua simply kept close to his teammates to hold spawns and prevent flanks. On top of that, he easily shut down his opponents in Round 5 Search & Destroy with his signature assault rifle plays. Aqua sticking with his teammates allowed him to clinch Round 1 Hardpoint as Team Kaliber tried to spread out and flank him, only accidentally give Echo Fox superiors spawns when he slayed them out. In Round 5 Search & Destroy, Aqua blew through the map with a 10/3 KD in an eight-game round by letting Team Kaliber run into his sights.
Dismantles Rise Nation from range
April 21, 2018
Aqua marked his return to the top with a 3-2 win over Rise Nation on Friday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Aqua has been away from the spotlight he deserves after a tumultuous Stage 1. He finally makes his return today in a dramatic upset over Rise Nation, thanks in part due to his raw slaying power. Running a BAR assault rifle, Aqua was devastating during the Search & Destroy rounds thanks to his ability to score picks in dire situations. Wisely, he always kept an eye on his flanks against the likes of Gunless and TJHaLy. This was further helped by how Echo Fox stacked closely with each other in order to trade out against Rise Nation's heavy offense.
Dominant first two rounds in win
March 31, 2018
Aqua had an incredible first two rounds in the sweep win over Cyclone on Day 2 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy were all Aqua, especially the latter. In the former, he got off to an incredibly hot start, getting 10 kills shortly after the round started. He did a good job of keeping that going, even as Cyclone played well and had leads later on in the round. He went 28/20 with over two minutes on the objective, putting together an impressive two-way performance. His big round was the Search & Destroy round, however. He had an astonishing 16/2 KD in the round and truly carried his team. Not one of his teammates had more than four kills, and the first game that one of his teammates registered a kill came in Game 4. It was a perfect display from Aqua. He faltered in Round 3 Capture the Flag, and really struggled in the first half. His teammates made up for it by doing more than enough to win the round.
Some strong slaying in win
March 1, 2018
Aqua did not have the most consistent showing, but he did good things in the 3-2 win over Team Kaliber, during their Wednesday match during the Sixth Week of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a forgettable round for both Echo Fox and for Aqua. They barely got over the 100-point mark, finishing with 106, and no one on Echo Fox did anything. They all finished with sub-1.00 KD ratios, Aqua included. It was a rout. This was not his only poor round, either. He struggled in Round 3 Capture the Flag, barely getting involved in the round (finishing with a 11/12 KD). Their defense was stout without him, though, and won the round. In the final round of the match, Round 5 Search & Destroy, was an okay one for Aqua individually. He was a support player, and pitched in kills when they needed, but he hardly led the line. His two best rounds were Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 4 Hardpoint. The former saw him dominate, with six of his kills coming in the first four games. He ended up hitting the double-digit mark as they got their first round win. He had 31 kills in Round 4 Hardpoint, but Team Kaliber's offense was overwhelming, and they easily forced a fifth round.
Makes fighting Vitality look easy
February 21, 2018
Even though Aqua took a round to warm up, he still made Echo Fox look extremely dominant over Vitality, as Echo Fox won the series 3-0 on Day 7 of the CWL Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Aqua was acting like Bruce Lee's description of water during Echo Fox's series against Vitality -- he knew when to flow, and when to crash. Aqua was in "flow" mode in Round 1 Hardpoint, where he got a negative KD of 32/35, and the least hardpoint control time of his team at 43 seconds, yet was still useful enough to prevent an attempted Vitality comeback. However, Aqua crashed into Vitality like a tsunami during Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he went triple positive in KD with 12/4, the casters appropriately calling the round "the Aqua show" early on. The flood continued into Vitality during Round 3 Capture the Flag, where Aqua scored 3 flag captures and a 22/14 KD, effectively drowning Vitality as they lost 3-0 to Echo Fox.
Average in loss
February 1, 2018
Aqua struggled to make a huge dent in the sweep loss to Rise Nation, on the Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a frustrating loss for Echo Fox. They fell down early, but a lot, and no matter how hard they fought to get back into it they could never get a lead. They simply had problems getting into the objective. Aqua was an example of that, as he notched just five seconds on the hill. He had a 27/28 KD to boot; it was a forgettable round, and that continued throughout the rest of the match. They got annihilated in Round 2 Search & Destroy, with TJHaLy putting on a clinic and Echo Fox struggling to keep up. Aqua had the final kill in Game 4, one of the two games they won. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a low-scoring 2-1 loss in overtime, with both teams' offenses getting suffocated more often than not. Aqua went 17/18 in the round, but had a few big kills early in the second half to spring the game-tying flag cap by Faccento.
Drags Echo Fox down on the hardpoints
January 31, 2018
Aqua certainly has work to do during the Hardpoint rounds, as Echo Fox's 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming on Tuesday during Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League plainly demonstrated.
ANALYSIS
Echo Fox counted on Aqua to deliver, but he failed to do so in the Hardpoint rounds. Aqua had a dull start to the series during Round 1 Hardpoint, where he only managed a KD of 24/30 and the least amount of hardpoint control time for his team at 26 seconds. Aqua attempted to redeem himself during Round 2 Search & Destroy, and he stayed alive long enough to at least get a positive KD of 4/3. Aqua broke even in KD with 14/14 and even got a flag capture under his belt in Round 3 Capture the Flag. But he predictably faltered again in Round 4 Hardpoint, where he was the only one on his team to post a negative KD with 22/25, and a mere 32 seconds of hardpoint control time, again the least of his team. Aqua needs to work on the Hardpoint game mode if he is to help his team secure any victories in the future.
Brings kills but not victories
January 25, 2018
Aqua was on point as a slayer during Echo Fox's match against Team Kaliber, but he just couldn't get the overall victories needed on Wednesday of the Stage 1 CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Aqua certainly brought the kills against Team Kaliber, but as we all know in competitive Call of Duty, kills aren't everything. Aqua started off with a KD of 37/33 during Round 1 Hardpoint, tallying the only positive KD total for his team that round. Aqua was a slaying menace against Team Kaliber during Round 2 Search & Destroy, chalking up an impressive KD of 11/7 and actually helping Echo Fox win that round. Aqua also tallied the most kills of his team on Round 3 Capture the Flag, with a KD of 20/15 and a flag capture on top. Aqua finally posted a negative KD during Round 4 Hardpoint at 23/27 and also scored the least hardpoint control time of his team. Finally, Aqua ended the series on a sour note, as he was on the receiving end of a Chino collateral sniper shot that locked down Kaliber's win.
Performed well in rather easy win
January 24, 2018
Aqua had a nice performance as Echo Fox beat eRa Eternity 3-1 in their CWL Global Pro League Stage 1, Division A, match.
ANALYSIS
Aqua's biggest contribution to Echo Fox's Round 1 Hardpoint win did not come with his gun, even though he had a solid-if-unspectacular 23/21 KD in the round; his biggest asset was his ability to soak up the objective time. He led the lobby with 2:06 on the hill, allowing his team to move around the map more freely, and in some cases rotate early to get a jump on eRa Eternity. He capped off the round with a great play to clear the area of any eRa members, and put his team within two points of victory. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him fall back into a more supportive role, as Assault led Echo Fox. It was a very close match, with a strong end by Saints shifting the tide towards Echo Fox. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a low point for Echo Fox. Their offense was abysmal, as they could not string together kills, and barely were able to push the flag forward. Aqua had the best game out of all four Echo Fox members, finishing with their only positive KD of the round (19/17). He was fine, but he had no support and they easily lost. They made up for it with a blistering performance in Round 4 Hardpoint, dominating eRa Eternity. He finished with 29 kills, and was a part of a three-pronged attack with Assault (29 kills) and Saints (30 kills), as they put in a nearly perfect performance that both stifled any eRa Eternity offense and dominated the Hardpoint. It was a great way to cap off a good win for Aqua and Echo Fox.
Unable to do much in loss to Luminosity
January 14, 2018
Aqua couldn't help Echo Fox capitalize on the team's 2-0 series lead over Luminosity Gaming in the upper bracket semifinals, falling to the opposition after a reverse sweep.
ANALYSIS
Aqua was kept in check for most of the series, posting mainly positive slaying numbers in respawns, but deferring to Faccento in both Search and Destroys. Aqua tactfully moved around in the pivotal Round 5 Search and Destroy, oftentimes finding himself the last one alive. However, each instance often forced Aqua into impossible situations, and the former Rise slayer was predictably unable to work around the disadvantage.
Gets win despite subpar rounds
January 14, 2018
Aqua managed to help his team pick up a 3-1 win over the OpTic Gaming on Saturday despite some slow rounds.
ANALYSIS
While Aqua had a bit of a rough go of things in this series, he managed to do just enough to help his team pick up a win. The Hardpoint rounds were his kryptonite, as he was almost double negative for the majority of both of them. He more than made up for this with a big showing during Capture the Flag, however. That round put Echo Fox up 2-1 for good and was the difference maker in this 3-1 win.
Can't keep up in loss
January 12, 2018
Aqua had a hard time running with eUnited in the 3-1 on the first day of the CWL New Orleans Open.
ANALYSIS
Aqua had a nice Round 1 Hardpoint, netting 24 kills as Echo Fox rolled eUnited 250-96. They got off to a hot start and ran with it, as eUnited did not look ready to start the match. Echo Fox looked like they'd pose a real threat to eUnited, but that quickly stopped. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw eUnited pick it up, and Echo Fox mostly struggled. Aqua was one of three members of Echo Fox to get just five kills, which was not nearly enough to run with a strong eUnited side. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw eUnited play stifling defense, and Echo Fox could not get anything going. Aqua got their first flag pull, which opened the second half, but the comeback attempt was quickly stopped. Aqua struggled again in Round 4 Hardpoint, going 17/20 as eUnited returned the favor for Round 1 Hardpoint. They took the round 250-175, and a lot of those Echo Fox points came in garbage time.
Officially signs with Echo Fox
January 5, 2018
Aqua officially signed with Echo Fox, the organization announced on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Dexerto reported as early as last week that Aqua would be joining Echo Fox following his release from Rise Nation, so it was a bit of a surprise to see the organization withhold what felt like a foregone conclusion for a bit of time. In any case, the venerable slayer joins a unit on the cusp of qualifying for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League depending on how they finish at CWL New Orleans. After rallying through the open bracket at CWL Dallas, a new-look Echo Fox team sits in a much more comfortable spot after earning pool play position for the upcoming LAN event.
Announces his free agency
December 30, 2017
Aqua announced his free agency Friday, potentially contradicting an earlier report suggesting the slayer was headed to Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
One of the better players in all of North America, extenuating circumstances have seemingly muddled Aqua's potential move to Echo Fox, which seemed like all but a foregone conclusion Friday. With a narrowing list of teams in need of a player that also present Aqua with the best chance at qualifying for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League, it stands to reason the former Rise Nation slayer will wind up on Echo Fox in a matter of time. However, the proposition seems far from a sure thing given Aqua's surprising free agency announcement.
