Joining Evil Geniuses
October 12, 2018
Saints will join Evil Geniuses, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
Echo Fox's decision to close operations on their Call of Duty team likely advanced the inevitable for Saints, as the veteran slayer didn't have the best season under the organization. He'll look to turn it around under Evil Geniuses, alongside a hodgepodge of cast-off players including Felo, Lacefield, Goonjar and Royalty. The in-game leader might have his work cut out for him, but after winning the 2018 World Championships, its clear that Evil Geniuses is not willing to go away quietly, acquiring a five-man lineup that should be in contention for a Pro League spot in 2019.
Fights valiantly in bad loss
August 15, 2018
Saints had some good moments in the bad sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
Saints led his team in Hardpoint time in Round 1 Hardpoint, with 54 seconds (they earned just 109 Hardpoint points), but he struggled to slay, going just 14/19 in the round. That was a theme throughout this, as Echo Fox (Saints included) were outslayed in every facet by Luminosity. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Saints, Temp and Faccento do a good job keeping pace with John and FormaL through the first five games, but the wheels quickly fell off as they lost 6-2. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a 3-0 shutout loss, but Saints did some nice things. He led his team with 19 kills, and was a bit of a thorn in Luminosity's side, but it did not change the flow of the round in any meaningful way; Luminosity dominated the map and finished Echo Fox off.
Caught fire after slow start
July 28, 2018
Saints started slowly, but finished well, in the 3-2 loss to Red Reserve on Day 2 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs, as Echo Fox were eliminated from the tournament.
The first round in this match was rough for Saints. He went just 28/38 in the loss and added just 22 seconds on the objective. He struggled to find his footing in the slaying department and just did not get the objective time needed to be a quality contributor despite his slaying woes. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a sharp turnaround for him - one that he continued into Round 3 Capture the Flag. He was great in the second round - he was the best player on Echo Fox, and he paced them to their eventual eleven game defeat. The third round saw him be a very good player behind Temp, as they came from behind to win the round. Echo Fox ran out to a 120-38 lead in Round 4 Hardpoint, and Saints was a big part of that. He ended up going 30/31, with 1:30 on the objective -- he had a slow start to the round, but he turned it around late to finish it incredibly strong. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw Saints be very good yet again, but he did not have proper support in the 6-4 loss.
Perks up in last round of loss
July 6, 2018
Saints' best round was the last round of the sweep loss to FaZe Clan on Day 2, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
The first round of this match was a struggle for Saints, a bad 250-54 loss in which they were out if it almost immediately. He went just 12/24 in the round, as FaZe Clan dominated in every facet. Round 2 Search & Destroy was the closest round, as Echo Fox led 5-3 before losing three games in a row to lose in 11. Saints was put into a more supportive role in the round, as Temp, Aqua and Faccento did the heavy lifting for Echo Fox. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his best individual round, as he went 17/19 (leading his team in kills), despite FaZe Clan dominating the round in every facet in the 2-0 loss.
Strong finish to win
June 29, 2018
Saints did not have the best start, but finished excellently, as Echo Fox bested Team EnVyUs 3-2 on Day 3, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Round 1 Hardpoint was a struggle for Saints. While his teammates thrived for the majority of the round, he lagged behind them. He finished last in the lobby in kills (31) and objective time (22 seconds), struggling to contribute to the round. They were set to win it despite Saints' tough time, but they collapsed and lost the round late. He picked it up with a solid Round 2 Search & Destroy, as he was a solid contributor in the 6-0 win. Round 3 Capture the Flag was where he finally came out of his shell to star, as they won the round 5-1, with him in the lead. He had one of his team's flag caps, and he led the lobby with 23 kills, helping pace them to the win. He continued his excellent slaying performance in Round 4 Hardpoint, as he carried Echo Fox on his back through a round that copied the first round; Echo Fox led convincingly, only to collapse and lose the round. He had a whopping 40 kills, the most in the lobby by ten, and added a strong 1:19 on the objective. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him carry the team again, though instead of collapsing late, they won the game in 10 to win the round and the match.
Ups and downs in loss
May 25, 2018
Saints had his ups and downs in the 3-1 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 3, Week 2 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
Saints had a terribly slow start to Round 1 Hardpoint, as they trailed by a rather healthy margin for the majority of the round. However, Saints began to pick it up late, as the combination of him, Temp and Aqua sparked a huge comeback that fell just a little bit short. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Saints start well. He went 3/2 through the first two games, as his teammates had zero combined kills. However, that is about all he was able to do, as Echo Fox lost the round 6-1. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him have a big moment in the match despite the 16/18 KD - he had the final flag cap in the round, giving them a 3-2 lead with 12 seconds left, forcing a Round 4 Hardpoint. However, that Hardpoint round was an easy win for Team EnVyUs. No one on Echo Fox hit the 20-kill mark as they were outslayed to finish off the loss.
Highs and lows in loss
May 23, 2018
Saints had his fair share of highs and lows in the sweep loss to FaZe Clan on Day 1, Week 2, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
Round 1 Hardpoint was a weird round for Saints. He did not slay particularly poorly, netting 28 kills in the round, but he died 36 times. They simply could not handle the excellent slaying performance by FaZe Clan in this round, and it cost them map control and Hardpoint time. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Saints got off to an incredible start. He got an ace in the first game, but that was basically it for both him and Echo Fox. He managed to get just one more kill in the rest of the round, and they lost six in a row to lose 6-1. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him have a similar game to Round 1 Hardpoint. His 17 kills were second on the team, but his 19 deaths showed how they were outslayed by FaZe yet again.
Lots of good in loss
May 16, 2018
Saints played well but could not stop the 3-2 loss to Team Kaliber on Day 1 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
Saints had a rather slow start in this one, especially in terms of slaying. He went 23/36 in the round, but he had a nice performance on the Hardpoint early on. While he ended with just 52 seconds there, his early Hardpoint performance helped get them out to an early lead, albeit one they would not hold. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Saints do his best work late in the round. He picked up where Aqua left off, carrying Echo Fox through the last few games of the round win. Saints had a nice showing in the Round 3 Capture the Flag win. He had 18 kills and the game-winning flag cap in the 2-1 game. Saints' best round came in Round 4 Hardpoint, as he easily was the best player on the team, leading them in kills (36) and leading the lobby in objective time (1:55). He was excellent in every facet, but it still was not enough to stave off a late comeback by Team Kaliber. He was fine in Round 5 Hardpoint, as Team Kaliber won the round and the match.
Anchors his team down
April 22, 2018
Saints stuck to spawn control in a 3-2 win over Team Kaliber on Sunday of CWL Seattle.
Echo Fox came in with a clear plan to defeat Team Kaliber: stick together. Saints was key in making this simple strategy work as he had to hold spawns for his team to allow them to whether the enemy's assault. Saints was solid in this role in respawn rounds as Team Kaliber's flanks made it easy for Saints to plan his team's spawns. For example, in Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar, Kenny attempted to flank Echo Fox on rotations to the Castle Road hill. Saints and his team's early rotations to this hill allowed them to hold sticky spawns near the Hardpoint, making it hard for Team Kaliber to crack the point.
Backs up his aggressive teammates
April 21, 2018
Saints stuck close to his team in a 3-2 win over Rise Nation on Friday of CWL Seattle.
Alongside Faccento, Saints played a more defensive game to secure the spawns for his team, often backing up either Temp or Aqua on a whim. This versatility helped Echo Fox secure key fights against Rise Nation. For example, in Round 4 Hardpoint on Valkyrie Saints coordinated with his team to stagger the objective by rotating in and out of the hill. In the final seconds of the round Saints jumped into the Ventilation Room to allow Temp to get out of the hill and challenge Rise Nation. Split-second decision making is what allowed Echo Fox to steal the series from Rise Nation.
Three solid rounds in win
March 1, 2018
Saints did not put together a full five rounds, but he was good in three of them in the 3-2 win over Team Kaliber on Wednesday, during the Sixth Week of the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
Echo Fox got off to an abysmal start in Round 1 Hardpoint. The team hardly got to the 100-point mark, finishing with 106. Not one member of Echo Fox hit the 1.00 KD mark, either. They could not slay, could not get map control, and could not be competitive in the round. Saints picked it up for Round 2 Search & Destroy, however. He had a hot start, finishing off Game 1, and he added the final kills in Games 5 and 10 as well. He was the third wheel in Round 3 Capture the Flag, notching 13 kills, behind the 20-kill performances from Assault and Faccento. The three of them put together a perfect defensive display, and totally stifled Team Kaliber's offense. Saints was middling in Round 4 Hardpoint, though a lot of that had to do with how strong Team Kaliber was from the middle of the round on. He was a key part in giving them a slight lead, but they fell apart immediately after that. Saints went 30/32 in the round, despite his strong mid-round performance. Round 5 Hardpoint saw Saints put together strong early performance. He had four kills, and the final kills, of Games 1 and 2. With Assault doing the heavy lifting, his early support play was a key to the win.
Gets the job done against Vitality
February 21, 2018
Saints may not have had the most stellar of performances against Vitality, but he did well enough to help his team Echo Fox sweep aside Vitality 3-0 on Day 7 of the CWL Pro League, Division A.
In Round 1 Hardpoint, Saints was Echo Fox's savior on the hardpoints, getting a whopping 1:40 of hardpoint control time, even if his KD wasn't the best of Echo Fox at 32/30. Saints did not do nearly as well in Round 2 Hardpoint, where he scored a mere KD of 4/7, as his teammates Aqua and Assault stole the show. However, Saints would go on to get the best KD of his team during Round 3 Capture the Flag, notching an impressive 25/14, and even captured the flag a couple of times, easily outdoing Vitality as Echo Fox swept them aside 3-0.
One good round in loss
February 1, 2018
Saints saw a ton of struggles in the sweep loss to Rise Nation, on the Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 season.
Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy were absolutely forgettable rounds for Saints. In the former, Saints was woefully outslayed, finishing the round with a 27/34 KD. He did not contribute much on the objective, either, notching just 39 seconds there. He struggled to play with an excellent Rise Nation team, and it showed in his stats. The second round was worse. He had just one kill through the first five games, and did not have a late-game push to alleviate that. He, simply put, did not contribute enough for Echo Fox to make Rise Nation sweat. He did, however, play well in Round 3 Capture the Flag, which was their best round as a team. It went into overtime before they lost, and Saints ended with the joint lead in kills with 22. If he performed as well as he did in Round 3 in the other rounds, the match may have been closer.
Makes big plays in vain
January 31, 2018
Saints certainly had his moments during Echo Fox's series against OpTic Gaming on Tuesday during Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League, but he ultimately couldn't stop OpTic taking the 3-1 win.
Saints certainly tried his best, and the stats for this series prove that, but ultimately it was for nothing as he got little backup from his team. He started off strong in Round 1 Hardpoint with a positive KD of 27/25 and the most hardpoint control time of his team at 52 seconds, but OpTic still had no trouble putting Echo Fox into the 100-point club. Saints had no issues taking advantage of weak plays from OpTic during Round 2 Search & Destroy, where dropped a nasty double-positive KD of 12/6. Saints tried to carry that momentum into Round 3 Capture the Flag with two flag captures and a positive KD of 20/19, but even then OpTic were still able to clutch one more capture under the noses of Echo Fox. History repeated itself during Round 4 Hardpoint, where again despite Saints's efforts, which resulted in a 29/27 KD and the most hardpoint control time of his team at 1:21, OpTic won anyway.
Fights valiantly but fruitlessly against Team Kaliber
January 25, 2018
Saints was the one bright spot in Echo Fox's loss against Team Kaliber on Wednesday during Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
Saints tried to carry the team on his back when they fought against Team Kaliber, but even Saints had to give out sometime. Saints scored the most kills of his team during Round 1 Hardpoint, but ultimately went negative with a KD of 39/43. He'd help clutch a Game 11 victory during Round 2 Search & Destroy with a final kill against Accuracy and an overall KD of 7/8. Saints was instrumental to Echo Fox's comeback against TK during Round 3 Capture the Flag with his flag capture, even as his KD suffered with 15/18. But Saints saw the series slip away from Echo Fox during Round 4 Hardpoint, where despite Saints's positive KD of 28/23, Team Kaliber won that round by almost 100 points. Saints closed out the round against Team Kaliber during Round 5 Search & Destroy with a positive 7/6 KD, but by then all he could do was watch Team Kaliber walk away with a clutch victory.
