Team Kaliber
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Gets beat down by TJHaLy's SMGs
February 2, 2018
KuavoKenny was forced to face his equal in a disastrous 3-2 loss to Rise Nation on Day 6 of Stage 1 CWL Pro League.
KuavoKenny, the SMG master, finally met someone who can shut him down. Going against TJHaLy, the two SMG players had to dash and dive around each other in a desperate attempt to win gunfights. This was clearly seen in Round 3 Capture the Flag on Ardennes Forest and Round 4 Hardpoint on London Docks. Both maps and game modes were ones that KuavoKenny exceeded in, but TJHaLy stood in his way at every turn. In Round 4 Hardpoint, KuavoKenny was able to open up the map in the second set of rotations with flanks, but Rise Nation's earlier lead was too much. Round 3 Capture the Falg even saw KuavoKenny score a flag capture that tied up the round through sheer aggression. However, TJHaLy's brawn and wisdom proved too consistent for KuavoKenny to conquer.
Some dominant performances in win
January 31, 2018
KuavoKenny did not dominate every round, but he was excellent more often than not as Team Kaliber outlasted Mindfreak 3-2 on Tuesday's CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 match.
KuavoKenny and Team Kaliber got off to a hot start in Round 1 Hardpoint, and it seemed as though they would stroll to a sweep win. He went off to the tune of 34 kills as Team Kaliber nearly kept Mindfreak below 100 points. He, and Team Kaliber, absolutely dominated both the kill feed and the Hardpoint. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag were the opposite, with Mindfreak dominating and KuavoKenny putting in two average-at-best performances. Overall, Mindfreak were on a roll and KuavoKenny really struggled to hang with them. They tied it up in Round 4 Hardpoint, and it was an impressive and gritty performance to boot. KuavoKenny had a weird round, notching a joint team-high 24 kills, but he tied 30 times. He was ultra aggressive in the round, and it did not entirely work out for him. He was excellent in the decisive Round 5 Search & Destroy, notching double-digit kills in the round. He was great early on, getting eight kills through five games. He did well with his sniper, changing the map in their favor on multiple occasions.
Plays fast and furious against slow team
January 25, 2018
KuavoKenny played in the face of Red Reserve in a 3-2 win on Day 3 of Stage 1 CWL Pro League.
KuavoKenny continues his aggression without missing a beat. With an SMG in hand, KuavoKenny made sure to engage Red Reserve over and over only to find Red Reserve waiting for him. At least sometimes. KuavoKenny struggled to break out in Round 3 Capture the Flag and in Round 1 Hardpoint due to Red Reserve playing some tight formations in order to counter KuavoKenny's assaults. But in Round 5 Search & Destroy on London Docks, KuavoKenny's engagements put Red Reserve on the wrong foot and allowed his team to stagger the European titans.
Drops a 40-plus kill bomb on Echo Fox
January 25, 2018
KuavoKenny established dominance right away against Echo Fox during Team Kaliber's 3-2 win on Wednesday during Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
Kenny knows how to intimidate his opponents, which proved integral to Team Kaliber's overall victory against Echo Fox. During the bloodbath that was Round 1 Hardpoint, Kenny spilled the most of Echo Fox's blood, dropping a 43/37 KD bomb to help lock up the round. Kenny knew how to stay alive, too, as demonstrated by Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he survived long enough to earn a positive 8/6 KD. Kenny captured the flag two times for Team Kaliber during Round 3 Capture the Flag, but his lackluster KD of 12/17 didn't help matters much. Kenny also suffered during Round 4 Hardpoint, where he went negative in KD with 23/26. While Kenny couldn't muster much for himself in the final Search & Destroy, his teammates clutched enough for the whole team to lock up the series.
Pivots his team for better and for worse
January 23, 2018
KuavoKenny shows how important he is to his team in a 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming on Tuesday during Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
KuavoKenny, the rising star of this season, showed in this series just how dependent Team Kaliber has become on his performances. As the core SMG player, he is responsible for engaging teamfights and scouting. But while he tends to be fairly consistent, his team suffers when he plays too slow. This is indicated in both Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. Round 1 Hardpoint saw KuavoKenny go nearly double negative before OpTic Gaming took total control of the map. Meanwhile, KuavoKenny dropped two early five killstreaks in the first half to help his team clutch the map.
Same play, different day
January 23, 2018
KuavoKenny continued to impress during a 3-0 sweep of eRa Eternity on Tuesday in Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
With two Open titles in hand, it doesn't look like Kenny will be content to slow down anytime soon. While his Hardpoint wasn't as dominant as we've come to see from him in terms of slaying, he made up for it with strong objective focus to pick up the close win. His best showing had to be Capture the Flag where he swarmed eRa from all angles, helping his team easily pick up the win. They'll meet a tough test in the form of OpTic Gaming on Tuesday night, but this team is looking amazing thus far.
Splits Luminosity Gaming apart
January 15, 2018
KuavoKenny rebounded in a tough pair back-to-back series against Luminosity Gaming to claim the title of CWL New Orleans.
KuavoKenny, after a grueling double series, managed to break the backs of Luminosity Gaming. But it took Team Kaliber to take their first LAN lose to do so. The first set seemed firmly in Luminosity Gaming's favor as they played slow and methodically, a style that KuavoKenny just isn't accustomed to. His aggressive roaming was an attempt to break Luminosity Gaming's defenses in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag, but he continually failed to find streaks to do so. In the second series, however, KuavoKenny began to play sneaky. The second Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks was a masterclass for KuavoKenny as he broke the third Warehouse hill through a hail of Scorestreaks, clutch a kill and then stall the point long enough that Luminosity were forced into an unfavorable rotation to the next point. There, Team Kaliber cleaned up their opponents.
