Team Kaliber
Fails to run through Red Reserve
May 17, 2018
Kenny tried to fly through Red Reserve in a 3-2 loss with a 78/83 KD on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Kenny kept to his aggressive style to the bitter end, for better or for worse. Playing close to his team, he absolutely melted Red Reserve in Round 1 Hardpoint, burning through players by just holding the entrances of Hardpoints. And if he ever struggled, his team were right behind him to back him up. Kenny's strategy of stacking, however, hit a wall in Search & Destroy. Red Reserve played a slow game, allowing them to score picks and force uneven fights. Kenny ended Round 5 Search & Destroy with a 6/7 KD.
Strong slaying in win
May 16, 2018
Kenny had a great performance in the 3-2 win over Echo Fox on Day 1 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had some absolutely ridiculous performances in the Search & Destroy rounds. He posted double-digit kills in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but Echo Fox managed to stave off Team Kaliber in 11 games. He continued his dominant Search & Destroy showing in Round 5 Search & Destroy, as Team Kaliber won that round in nine games. He was no slouch in the respawn rounds either. He notched 37 kills in their Round 1 Hardpoint win, and notched 44 kills in their Round 4 Hardpoint win. The latter saw him kill all four members of Echo Fox to stop them from winning, and get the final three seconds to win the round. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a tense, defensive round with little offense. He provided good defense in the round, but hardly stood out. Overall, he was excellent, and a key piece of the win.
Falters with slaying
April 22, 2018
Kenny struggled to slay out against Echo Fox in a 3-2 loss on Sunday at CWL Seattle, placing 6th in the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Normally, Kenny's speedy flanks work in decimating his opponents but Echo Fox used his mobility to their advantage. In the Hardpoint rounds, Kenny tried to rotate early with long wraps where he could pepper shots into Echo Fox. This rarely worked, especially in Round 4 Hardpoint, as Echo Fox made sure to spot him out and quickly take him down. Kenny's deaths on rotation often handed spawn control to Echo Fox instead of securing it for his team. Finally, in Round 5 Search & Destroy Kenny delivered an abysmal permanence of a 1/7 KD.
Grinds Splyce into dust
April 21, 2018
Kenny dismantled Splyce with aggressive flanks in a fast 3-1 win on Friday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Kenny adjusted to the new meta easily and quickly. The unlimited sprinting has allowed him to run away the map without worry, constantly attacking and harassing Splyce from their flanks. His constant movement put his opponents on edge as he quickly got between Splyce's positions and split them apart. This was best seen in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Sainte Marie Du Mont in Game 1. Kenny rushed down mid-lane to get behind Splyce planting at Bomb B. He burned two players planting at the site before turning around and snapping MadCat coming to reinforce his team. From then on, all Kenny had to do was rush mid-lane to easily cook Splyce's players, ending the round with a 10/2 KD.
Can't back-up aggression with slaying
April 8, 2018
Kenny played a little too fast in a 3-0 loss to FaZe Clan, ending their tournament run on Day 3 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Kenny may have opened plays but he could rarely capitalize on them. FaZe Clan played an extremely fast game alongside Kenny, and it was clear he got lost in the chaos of the fighting as his slaying skills became inconsistent. For example, in Round 1 Hardpoint Kenny started the series hot but quickly slowed down by the second set of rotations as he got out-flanked. Similarly, in Round 3 Capture the Flag Kenny dominated the second half thanks to his fast movements, but his playstyle became his undoing during Overtime as FaZe Clan rotated easily around him.
Strong slayer
April 7, 2018
Kenny had a good slaying performance in the 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Day 1 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Outside of Round 3 Capture the Flag, Kenny had a strong slaying performance in this match. Despite their rather easy win in that round, Kenny saw his fair share of struggles. He went just 13/18 in the round, falling back while his teammates dominated. The rest of his performance was strong, however. Even in their Round 1 Hardpoint loss, he managed a whopping 48 kills. His strong slaying, paired with Accuracy's two-way game, gave them a solid base that nearly won them the round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw them reestablish that connection, though this time it resulted in a win. Kenny had a big hand in it and had two kills right at the end of the round that got them their last Hardpoint points to secure the win. He was strong in Round 2 Search & Destroy as well, leading his team alongside Theory.
Dominates in swing round
March 31, 2018
Kenny did what he needed to in Team Kaliber's 3-2 win over FaZe Clan on Day 1 of CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Kenny got off to a rough start in this series, going just 2/8 in the opening moments of the first Hardpoint round. As things progressed, however, he was back to his normal self. This was especially true during Capture the Flag when he was the primary flag carrier who put his team on the path to an easy 3-0 victory. They might have slipped up a bit in the second Hardpoint, but they closed out the series with a narrow 6-5 win in the final Search & Destroy to get the series win.
Falls in CWL Atlanta losers' bracket to Red Reserve
March 13, 2018
Kenny was unable to help his team carry through hopes of a championship victory at CWL Atlanta, as Team Kaliber narrowly cracked Top 8.
ANALYSIS
After finishing second with a 3-1 record in Pool D in the early stages of CWL Atlanta, Team Kaliber were poised to make a run through the playoffs, which started late on Day 2 of CWL Atlanta. They were knocked into the losers' bracket after a narrow defeat from Team EnVyUs in a tense series that went all the way to Game 10 in Round 5 Search & Destroy. From there, they were able to hold off Echo Fox, but an upstart Red Reserve ultimately defeated Team Kaliber and put them in the Top 8. If anything, though, this loss makes Kenny hungry for more and more loyal to his team than ever, as he recently announced getting a Team Kaliber tattoo.
Overcomes bad start
March 10, 2018
Kenny had a poor first round, but more than made up for it in the sweep win over Ghost Gaming on Day 2 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a rough one for Kenny, despite their breezy 250-113 win. He struggled to do any slaying, going 16/23 in the round, as his teammates really carried the load for him. He was poor for most of Round 2 Search & Destroy, as well, continuing his rough first round showing. He only had one kill through the first seven games. He woke up for a ridiculous last two games, getting six kills in Games 9 and 10 combined, with the latter seeing him pick up an ace to win the round. Kenny took those last two games and rode it to a strong Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he led the lobby in kills with 25. His strong slaying helped his team keep pace with Ghost Gaming, and eventually win the round in overtime.
Some inconsistencies in loss
March 10, 2018
Kenny did some good but he was inconsistent in the reverse sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Kenny's Round 1 Hardpoint ended with a sub-par 36/38 KD, but he impacted the round more than that suggests. He was a monster early on, as he and Chino were key in giving Team Kaliber an early lead. While he faltered to an average performance towards the end of the round, his early round play was key to the win. He did the reverse in Round 2 Search & Destroy, however, as his biggest contributions came towards the end of the round. He had the final kill in Games 8 and 9, both wins for TK. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Team Kaliber waste a strong Kenny, Chino and Accuracy first half performance to lose a 3-2 nail biter. Kenny was the best player on Team Kaliber in Round 4 Hardpoint. He had 38 kills, leading his team by a wide margin -- the second highest kill total on Team Kaliber was 29. They simply did not have the firepower behind Kenny to run with a Luminosity Gaming team that was firing on all cylinders. Round 5 Search & Destroy was a tense 11-game round, but Kenny really struggled. His very aggressive style of Search & Destroy play did not pan out in this one, as he went kill-less through the first five games. He was poor throughout the eleven game loss, and it really did hurt his team's chances.
Stomps and tramples Red Reserve
March 1, 2018
Kenny ran through Red Reserve in a fast 3-0 victory on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had little to fear this series as Red Reserve's SMG frontline of Joee and Joshh struggled to defend against him. Because of Red Reserve's weak defense, Kenny essentially had every chance to roam. This was best seen in Round 2 Search & Destroy where Kenny tore through Red Reserve. Every game saw Kenny barrel down mid-map and scout out the Europeans' rotations just before rushing them. This worked flawlessly as Red Reserve was determined to play passively, giving Kenny more than enough room to flank them from any angle.
More good than bad
March 1, 2018
Kenny had one particularly bad round, but was solid outside of that despite the 3-2 loss to Echo Fox to finish of Wednesday's Week 6, CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1 matches.
ANALYSIS
Round 3 Capture the Flag was, to put it bluntly, a disaster for Kenny. He limped to a 9/19 KD in the round, and his lackluster performance was a big reason why their offense went nowhere. The combined 18/39 KD from him and Assault ruined their chances to break through a strong Echo Fox defense. He was solid in the other four rounds, however. He lead his team in kills (27) in a Round 1 Hardpoint that saw them crush Echo Fox 250-106, a round they had in the bag from the beginning. He continued with a hot start in Round 2 Search & Destroy, notching five kills in four games despite losing the round. He bounced back from his Capture the Flag disaster with a 30-kill Round 4 Hardpoint performance, as they made their Hardpoint dominance known in the round. It was closer than the first round, but they were untouchable around the halfway mark. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him notch 11 kills, and lead his team to four wins. However, it became a battle of the support players as Assault matched his kill total, and Echo Fox's were better than Team Kaliber's, leading them to victory.
Limps through a blowout game
February 27, 2018
Kenny nearly found some plays in a 3-1 loss to Mindfreak in Week 6 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Kenny continued his classic blitzkrieg-style of gameplay, but Mindfreak were more than prepared for him. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint became disasters for the rising start, but he would win Round 2 Search & Destroy on Ardennes Forest for his team. Kenny was easily able to flank Mindfreak to get cheap kills and easy rounds. He would try to flank again in Round 3 Capture the Flag on Ardennes Forest, but he didn't have the muscle to back it up. For example, Kenny stole the flag from Mindfreak with a sneaky flank in the second half, but it was unable to hold on to it for long as he got gunned down by Scorestreaks in his base.
Uneven performance in win over Vitality
February 22, 2018
Kenny's performance was a seesaw in Team Kaliber's match against Vitality, but ultimately Kenny did enough to help his team get a 3-2 victory on Day 8 of the CWL Pro League Division A.
ANALYSIS
Kenny started out solidly enough in Round 1 Hardpoint, as did the rest of Team Kaliber when they put Vitality into the 200-point club, Kenny notching a KD of 18/13. Kenny slipped up, however, in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he got a negative KD of 3/9 as Vitality stole the round victory from under his nose. Thankfully, Kenny got the ball rolling again in Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he scored a flag capture and a whopping KD of 27/17. The seesaw would tip the other way in Round 4 Hardpoint where Kenny went negative in KD with 19/21. Kenny closed out the series with a bang, though in Round 5 Search & Destroy, where he'd score the round-winning kill to go double positive in KD with 8/4, helping Team Kaliber clutch another 3-2 series victory.
Limps through SMG battles
February 20, 2018
Kenny falls flat in an unflattering 3-0 loss to Rise Nation on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Kenny tried to make the best of an awkward series that came off the back of some bold claims he made earlier that day on "Hot Mic". Despite proclaiming himself as one of the best, he lost this series 3-0. Kenny would try to turn around this series, such as in the second half of Round 3 Capture the Flag. He was desperate to make a play, so he made a bold play to rush Rise Nation's flag after scoring two kills in mid. After scoring the flag pull, he barreled across the map and scored an unprecedented flag capture. He was nearly able to rally another capture, but a disastrous teamkill from Chino closed those chances.
