Echo Fox
Solid early play in loss
July 6, 2018
Temp had a nice first two rounds, but Echo Fox were still swept by FaZe Clan on Day 2, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Temp was the best player for Echo Fox in what was a horrid Round 1 Hardpoint performance for the team. They trailed by 70 points early, and eventually trailed 145-14, and 207-33 before losing 250-54. He led his team in kills with 19, and Hardpoint time with 23 seconds. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him, Faccento and Aqua form a three-headed attack that led them to a 5-3 lead before losing in 11 games following an impressive three-game comeback by FaZe Clan. Round 3 Capture the Flag is where the wheels fell off for Temp, as he limped to an 11/20 KD in the 2-0 loss. The map and kill feed were dominated by FaZe Clan in that round, and the Echo Fox offense was stifled from beginning to end, barely even threatening FaZe Clan.
Consistently solid in win
June 29, 2018
Temp contributed in each round of the 3-2 win over Team EnVyUs on Day 3, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Temp had a great performance in this match, even in their two Hardpoint losses. Both Round 1 and Round 4 Hardpoint were nearly identical, as Echo Fox led for the majority of the round only to collapse, lose their lead, and the round. He had 42 kills in the first Hardpoint round, and 30 kills in the second (which providing 1:11 on the objective in Round 4) Hardpoint round; he was a strong slayer in each of the rounds, and was a driving force in their near-wins. His other respawn performance was solid, too, as he went 19/13 in an easy 5-1 Round 3 Capture the Flag victory. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a 6-0 win, and he played a quality game. Round 5 Search & Destroy was closer, as they won in 10 games, and Temp was more of a support player behind Saints in that one.
Inconsistent in loss
May 25, 2018
Temp never found consistent footing in the 3-1 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 3, Week 2 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Temp had his ups and downs in this one, even within the same round at some point. Round 1 Hardpoint was one of those, as he started off incredibly slow as Team EnVyUs ran out to an early lead. Temp began to wake up towards the middle of the round, as he, Aqua and Saints staged a comeback that came up just short. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Temp have a disaster of a game. He did not have a kill in the 6-1 loss; it could not get much worse for Temp and Echo Fox. He turned it around for a solid Round 3 Capture the Flag, as he went 18/16 with a flag cap to his name. He also had a huge kill, stopping Decemate from tying the game with seconds on the clock. Round 4 Hardpoint, however, saw Echo Fox get outslayed for most of the match. Temp actually paced Echo to an early lead in the round, but he and the rest of Echo Fox faded as Team EnVyUs finished them off.
Struggles in sweep loss
May 23, 2018
Temp never really got it going in the sweep loss to FaZe Clan on Day 1, Week 2 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Temp saw his fair share of struggles in this one. Round 1 Hardpoint saw the majority of Echo Fox have a hard time keeping up with the excellent play from FaZe Clan as a whole. They, simply put, got heavily outslayed by their competition. Temo went 26/33, with 51 seconds on the objective. He was far from bad, he just could not slay with FaZe Clan. Round 2 Search & Destroy was even more of a blowout. Save for an ace from Saints in the first game, they could not do anything against FaZe Clan, losing 6-1. They lost Round 3 Capture the Flag 2-1, in a tense, close round, but Temp really struggled. He went 14/20 in the round, struggling to break through the staunch FaZe Clan defense.
Excellent start in loss
May 16, 2018
Temp started hot, but Echo Fox lost 3-2 to Team Kaliber anyway on Day 1 of Stage 2 of the CWL Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was excellent for Temp. He rattled off 10 quick kills as Echo Fox ran out to a 50-2 lead. While they kept their lead for the majority of the round, Team Kaliber kept clawing and eventually took a late lead. He was great despite the loss, netting 43 kills in the round. He fell into a support role in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as Aqua and Saints ended up carrying the heavy load for Echo Fox. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Temp resume his strong slaying, as his 22 kills led the lobby. His strong offense was key to the win for them, as offense was at a premium in the 2-1 win. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him struggle mightily to slay, but he still managed to get 1:25, good for second on the team. They ended up blowing another late lead in this one, however. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him tread water as Team Kaliber handled the round and won the match.
Sticks close to Aqua instead of flanking
April 22, 2018
Temp had a slower game than usual in a 3-2 victory over Team Kaliber on Sunday at CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Temp may not have been the strong SMG he's been known for but he was still as opportunistic as ever. His slow slaying was partly due to how Echo Fox played, often sticking together and rarely flanking, creating a solid core that made the team tough for the unfocused Team Kaliber to break. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, Temp would change the pace of the game by punishing a hole in his enemies' defense. Accuracy attempted to rally a flag capture off of two kills from a Fighter Pilot, only for Temp to kill him before he could pull the flag, allowing Temp to counter with his own flag capture.
Finds revenge against an old teammate
April 21, 2018
Temp overextended at times in a 3-2 win over Rise Nation on Friday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Temp's aggression hasn't been snuffed a bit by his recent swap onto Echo Fox. Instead, with Aqua's ARs covering his flanks, Temp played more aggressively than ever. This was both a boon and a bane for Temp as his eagerness to score kills often put him the heart of Rise Nation's positions. While this was useful in Search & Destroy rounds, where a single kill can swing a series, it was less effective in respawn. Despite this, Temp still managed to steal Round 4 Hardpoint on Valkyrie from Rise Nation thanks to his obsession with securing hills and then pushing lanes. In the final seconds of the round, he dove onto the point and stalled long enough for his teammates to flood in and reinforce the hill, allowing him to push out in the final seconds and prevent Rise Nation from securing the map.
Officially linked to Echo Fox
April 19, 2018
Temp has joined Echo Fox, the organization confirmed on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
This was merely a formality, as Temp had long been rumored to join Echo Fox soon after Team EnVyUs announced their lineup devoid of the young player. The transaction became even more obvious after Assault opted to join Aches on Evil Geniuses. While Echo Fox hasn't necessarily done well in the CWL Stage 1 Pro League, they've placed no worse than 9th-12th place at open bracket events - a sign that they are capable of getting hot at any time. As a result, EF should have no trouble putting together similar results with the young slayer. While Temp provides a bit more upside in the long term compared to Assault, it's fair to question how long it might take for Temp to reach his peak, given he was billed as the next great slayer to enter Call of Duty, only to put together inconsistent performances on EnVyUs. He'll get his first shot at changing that perception come the CWL Seattle Open.
Seemingly released from Team EnVyUs
April 12, 2018
Temp was not listed on Team EnVyUs' updated roster, the organization revealed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Team EnVyUs picked up former eRa Eternity slayer Decemate as well as former Team Kaliber AR player Chino on Thursday, prompting the release of Temp. Billed as perhaps one of the best young players to enter Call of Duty, Temp quickly caught on with Huke in a completely remade Team EnVyUs roster heading into Call of Duty: World War II. While Temp certainly had some moments of brilliance, the team as a whole failed to live up to expectations. Still, there was reason to think the team was rounding into form, especially given EnVy finished in fourth place at the CWL Atlanta Open, but two straight losses in the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs promptly blew the roster apart, with SlasheR announcing his free agency only hours after the defeat. Temp's confrontational personality likely played a part in the departure, as the ever-confident player at times seemed to get under players' skins--most notably current Lighting Pandaz slayer Censor. There's absolutely no doubt Temp will not wind up on a roster prior to lineup locks on Friday, and given the talent and name value, he figures to land in a cushy situation, with plenty of contending teams in need of a young, up-and-coming slayer
Inconsistent showing
April 7, 2018
Temp never quite put it together in the 3-2 loss to FaZe Clan, eliminating Team EnVyUs on Day 2 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Temp had an up and down showing in this one. Round 1 Hardpoint was one of his good rounds, as he went 39/38. He did a lot of support slaying in the round, helping get his teammates into the objective and helped them keep it. Round 5 Search & Destroy was also one of his good rounds. He was, easily, the best player on their team. He was a thorn in FaZe Clan's side throughout the round. The other rounds saw him see struggles, however. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him get the final kill in Game 1, but they went on to lose the next six games to lose the round. He, like his teammates, were pretty powerless against it. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him go just 9/15, and Round 4 Hardpoint had him finish 22/30 - though he did have a very strong 1:50 on the objective, which upped his contribution by a lot.
Exerts only temporary dominance over OpTic Gaming
April 2, 2018
Temp only showed up in one round during a costly 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming in the Losers Quarterfinals of CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Time was not on Temp's side this series against OpTic Gaming. After a dominant Round 1 Hardpoint performance from Temp, where he scored a 28/18 KD and 1:22 of hardpoint control time that enabled Team EnVyUs to win that round, control began to slip away, and it slipped away fast. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw the shoe on OpTic's foot instead, and Temp felt it as his KD slipped into negative territory with 4/7. From there, it was all OpTic, as in Round 3 Capture the Flag, Temp scored no flag captures while chalking up another negative KD of 12/14. Temp would be put out of his misery in Round 4 Hardpoint, where Temp's performance was the polar opposite of Round 1 with a KD of 28/33 and only 20 seconds of hardpoint control time.
Doesn't watch his flanks
April 1, 2018
Temp stumbled into Rise Nation's aim in a 3-0 loss on Saturday at CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Rise Nation had far more coordination than Temp and Team EnVyUs. Despite a strong Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, a map where chaos easily thrives, Huke struggled to regain his momentum in Round 2 Search & Destroy. More often than not, Huke was either spotted out or fragged by Rise Nation, accidentally giving his opponents what they needed to thrive. However, Huke tried to trick shot Rise Nation with sneaky wall-bangs. While it rarely worked, it did find some minor kills and helped zone Rise Nation.
Whiffs key fights
March 30, 2018
Temp faltered in shutting down OpTic Gaming in a 3-1 loss on Friday of CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Temp didn't have a good series due to a variety of issues. His SMG game fell limp against OpTic Gaming as he was reacting to his opponents, instead of taking control of the series himself. But at the same time, wasn't able to force plays out of OpTic Gaming because of his weak SMG and slow teammates. While Team EnVyUs' slow burn worked in some cases, it didn't work in most. However, he was able to steal a win in Round 2 Search & Destroy by getting a stealthy defuse in Game 10.
Lead in Capture the Flag
March 23, 2018
Temp's best round came in their only round win of a 3-1 loss to Epsilon on Day 3 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 3 Capture the Flag was Temp's best moment of the match, by far. He was their driving force from beginning to end, running out to a hot start and keeping it up through the rest of the round. His 22 kills were highest on his team, four more than the second highest. He was excellent, and his slaying kept Epsilon at bay and opened up the map for their flag holders. The rest of his performance lagged behind that, however. His two Hardpoint rounds Round 1, and Round 4, resulted in 21/25 and 21/26 KD performances, and his Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him falter after getting the final kill in Games 2 and 3.
Fell apart after first round
March 17, 2018
Temp started great and finished poorly in the 3-0 loss to FaZe Clan on Day 3 of Week 3 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was excellent for Temp. He and Huke were a strong duo, as Temp finished 30/22 behind Huke's 35/25. The two of them combined made the round remotely competitive, but two sub-20 kill performances from Classic and SlasheR tanked their overall performance, and they lost 250-152. The next two rounds were bad losses, coupled with poor Temp performances. He managed just two kills in the 6-1 Round 2 Search & Destroy loss and turned a kill-less performance 2:50 into Round 3 Capture the Flag into an 11/17 finish. He was bad in the final two rounds, as they lost handily.
