Struggles in loss
August 15, 2018
Aqua could not do much of anything in the sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
Aqua had 17 kills in each of the respawn rounds (Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag), but he had 25 and 20 deaths respectively, as they were blown out in each round. No one played well, as Echo Fox was simply outslayed and outplayed. Round 2 Search & Destroy was no better, as they lost 6-2. Aqua's teammates did a lot to win them those first two games, but Aqua struggled to do anything even then. It was a match Echo Fox will quickly want to forget.
Solid respawn in loss
July 28, 2018
Aqua had solid respawn rounds throughout their 3-2 loss to Red Reserve on Day 2 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs, eliminating them from the playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Aqua had some solid performances in this one, but most of his strong play was in the respawn rounds. Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy were okay rounds for him - he was more a support player in the two round losses, struggling to get his team over the edge. Round 1 Hardpoint was an excellent round for Aqua, all told. He went 34/31 with 1:33 on the objective in the round loss. He paced them and kept them close, but the duo did not have the depth behind them to overtake Red Reserve. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him play very well, as he, and Temp, did the heavy lifting to complete their comeback win. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Echo Fox run out to a 120-38 lead. They had some scares but they ended up winning the round regardless. He was absolutely ridiculous in the win, netting 41 kills and 1:29 on the objective. He was a dominant force during the leads and the deficits, and without him, they would not have made it to a fifth round.
Poor first round in loss
July 6, 2018
Aqua struggled at the start of the sweep loss to FaZe Clan on Day 2, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Aqua really limped out of the gate in this match, as did all of Echo Fox. They lost 250-54, and were never really in the match at all. He went just 13/23, struggling to do much of anything on an individual level. They had a better round in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as they were up 5-3 before they lost in 11 games. He, Temp and Faccento were a three-headed monster that got them within a game of winning the round before FaZe Clan came roaring back. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a 2-0 loss, but it felt worse than that for Echo Fox, whose offense was completely shut down. Aqua had a solid 16/15 KD in the round, but it did not help create any offense for Echo Fox.
Best play comes early in win
June 29, 2018
Aqua flew out of the gates in the 3-2 win over Team EnVyUs on Day 3, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Aqua had a hot start to this match, as did Echo Fox. They led Round 1 Hardpoint for nearly the entire round, most of which was done on the backs of Faccento, Temp and Aqua. Aqua put together an incredible slaying performance in the round, netting 43 kills (leading the lobby) and a strong 1:45 on the objective. They did, however, succumb to an incredible late-game performance by Team EnVyUs, as they ended up collapsing and losing the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag were 6-0 and 5-1 blowout wins, respectively, and Aqua was a key part of both wins. They were both balanced, four-man efforts, with each player contributing something to the wins. Aqua was a strong slayer in each. Round 4 Hardpoint was not similar to Round 1 Hardpoint for Aqua, as he had some slaying struggles. He went 26/28, though he did have a robust 1:29 on the objective, leading Echo Fox in that category. The round played out very similar to the first round, however, as they held a lead for the majority of the round, only to collapse and lose it. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw Aqua settle into a support role behind Saints, as Saints led them to a 10-game win.
Best player in loss
May 25, 2018
Aqua was not perfect, but acquitted himself well for the most part in the 3-1 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 3, Week 2, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Aqua did a lot of good in this match, especially in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him be the only consistently good player on Echo Fox. His solid play throughout the round kept them close enough for a comeback to be possible, and he almost led them to one. He had a key use of the Fighter Pilot that gave them map control and got them within seconds of a win, just to lose it late. He went 36/20 in the round, with 1:02 on the objective. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him lead Echo Fox again, though this resulted in a win. His 23 kills led the lobby, and he was a menace on the defensive side of the map; he was a big reason why Team EnVyUs were held to two flag caps in the 3-2 win. The rest of his performance was subpar, though, as he was nonexistent in the 6-1 loss in Round 2 Search & Destroy, and went 19/21 in the Round 4 Hardpoint loss. They were dominated in each of those rounds, as they lost 3-1.
Strong respawn in loss
May 23, 2018
Aqua played well in the respawn rounds of the sweep loss to FaZe Clan on Day 1, Week 2, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Aqua had strong respawn rounds in this loss, though he struggled in the Search & Destroy round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw all of Echo Fox struggle, save for a Saints ace in the first game, the only game they would win in the round. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him fight valiantly against the incredible slaying performance from FaZe Clan, as he went 33/34 with 1:26 on the objective. He helped get them out to an early lead while FaZe Clan was finding their footing, but eventually Echo Fox simply got overwhelmed by FaZe. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him play well again, but again get little to no help. He went 23/19, with a flag cap in the round; he was the only Echo Fox member to have a positive KD and a flag cap. They, as a whole, could not push through the FaZe Clan defense in the 2-1 loss.
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.
