Joins 100 Thieves
August 28, 2018
Kenny has joined 100 Thieves' new Call of Duty roster for the Black Ops 4 season.
ANALYSIS
100 Thieves is back in action. After announcing his departure from Team Kaliber earlier Tuesday afternoon, Kenny has been revealed as one of the first two members of the organization's new roster. While he certainly didn't end the WWII season on the best of notes, losing to Evil Geniuses in the grand finals of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship, Kenny is still one of the best players in the game. With him and Fero in tow, 100 Thieves is already making their case as one of the best rosters heading into Black Ops 4.
Burns out in the middle of series
August 19, 2018
Kenny attempted to rebound in a back-to-back Grand Finals loss to Evil Geniuses, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had all the information he needed to fight Evil Geniuses, having fought them early in the day. However, the grueling set of four matches in a row eventually saw him and Team Kaliber burn out. Kenny stuck to his normal strategy of roaming and picking up kills in lane. While this strategy struggled to work in the first two rounds, partly because of the map, he was able to beam in lane in Round 3 Capture the Flag. Kenny caused constant problems for Evil Geniuses by constantly sneaking behind his opponents, such as in Round 3 Capture the Flag, or by landing double or triple kills, such as in Round 4 Hardpoint. However, the second Round 1 Hardpoint loss seemed to zap any energy left in Kenny and his shots quickly fell flat.
Finally steps up
August 19, 2018
Kenny tore through FaZe Clan in a 3-1 win on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship, allowing Team Kaliber to once again Evil Geniuses in the Grand Finals.
ANALYSIS
Kenny may have been lackluster against his previous series against Evil Geniuses, but he was able to step up against the red-hot FaZe Clan. He would begin to come to life in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he was able to circumvent FaZe Clan's multiple Scorestreaks, such as in Game 9 where he flanked FaZe Clan as they called in a Fighter Pilot. He would also lockdown Round 4 Hardpoint on London Docks with an outrageous eleven killstreak and 28/11 KD by the second Statue Hardpoint that gave his team Scorestreaks to close out the map. He would repeat this performance in Round 5 Search & Destroy with a seven killstreak to close the series.
Slow to awake
August 19, 2018
Kenny failed to wake up in a 3-1 loss against Evil Geniuses on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship, dropping into the Losers Final against FaZe Clan as a result.
ANALYSIS
Kenny seemed sluggish in one of the most important games of the year. Not only did Team Kaliber lose its first two Hardpoints of the tournament, but they failed to vote in an Ardennes Forest in a respawn round. Kenny's movement fell flat and he was unable to get around Evil Geniuses tight coordination and flawless map awareness. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint were especially vital as Kenny struggled to break Evil Geniuses' spawns for hills. This wasn't helped by his slow shots that failed to score Kenny any Scorestreaks outside of a Glide Bomb in Round 3 Capture the Flag.
Breezes through the late game
August 19, 2018
Kenny showed up in the late game to clutch a 3-1 win against eUnited on Day 4 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships to win a spot at the Winners Final.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had a slow early game, but he quickly turned up by Round 3 Capture the Flag as eUnited allowed in Ardennes Forest, Kenny's best map on his best game mode. Even on his weaker rounds, Kenny was able to harass and annoy eUnited in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy thanks to his clean movement skills. Kenny broke out in Round 4 Hardpoint on London Docks as he was able to dominate mid-map, landing kills and splitting eUnited's spawns in the second set of rotations.
Lands the title of MVP in Grand Finals win
July 30, 2018
Kenny is awarded the title of MVP in a Grand Finals win against Rise Nation, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Kenny's signature scrappy playstyle has once again won Team Kaliber a Championship title. While not popping off like he did at CWL Atlanta or CWL New Orleans, his aggression was able to throw Rise Nation off-guard and slowly whittle down their momentum. This was best seen in Hardpoint rounds where Kenny could turn teamfights into drawn out and bloody brawls. In the second Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint, for example, Kenny constantly challenged hills to burn down the clock and deny Rise Nation points. This was best seen in the second Round 1 Hardpoint where Kenny was able to steal the map from Rise Nation by running the clock to win by a narrow 201-196 margin.
Builds on slow start
July 29, 2018
Kenny started slow but soon picked up the pace, as Team Kaliber won the Winner's Bracket Final 3-1 on Day 3 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Kenny did not have the greatest start to Round 1 Hardpoint, and Rise Nation simply ran over them. Kenny did pick up his play towards the end of the round, but he did not do enough to win it. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Kenny play like the end of round one, putting in a good shift alongside Ferocitys and Accuracy. The trio helped get them their first round win in a hard-fought eleventh game. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Kenny dominate as they led 2-0, and kept it up as they hung on to the lead. He led the lobby with 26 kills providing them with strong defense. He helped keep them ahead when they faced some serious offensive pushes from Rise Nation. Round 4 Hardpoint was not close at all, as they won 250-102. Kenny, Enable, and Accuracy made up a dominant trio, as they took the round by storm, winning it with ease.
Three excellent rounds in win
July 27, 2018
Kenny brought it in three of the rounds of the 3-1 win over UNILAD eSports on day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Round 3 Capture the Flag was Kenny's worst round, and it was also their only loss. He was not even that bad; he went 32/34, with one of his team's two flag caps, but he could not do enough to break down the incredible UNILAD defense to tie or win the round. The rest of his performance was rock solid, though. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him start a little slowly, but he ended up going off and putting up a 40-kill effort. He was sprung by an impressive kill streak in the middle of the round, and he ran with it from there. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him, Ferocitys and Accuracy put together a three man effort that completely stifled UNILAD in the 6-2 win. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him take a step back from his first round showing, but he was still good. He went 23/17 with 42 seconds on the objective, as Team Kaliber had a balanced attack that saw them win the round and the match.
Hints that he wants out of Team Kaliber
July 23, 2018
Kenny hinted that he expects to leave Team Kaliber following the conclusion of the competitive World War II season.
ANALYSIS
This comes after a stream in which Kenny alleges Team Kaliber has yet to pay him the full minimum monthly league salary - a claim which tK owner Kosdff seemed to deny. With only a few weeks remaining until the Call of Duty World Championships, it'll be interesting to see if any resentment lingers into the most important tournament of the year. Should Kenny leave Team Kaliber, he would almost certainly be considered one of the best available free agents regardless of who else enters the field, as his youth and play throughout this season have made him one of the fastest rising "rookies" to date.
Strong play does not stop loss
July 7, 2018
Kenny played well, but it was not enough to get Team Kaliber to overcome FaZe Clan in their 3-2 loss on Day 3, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Kenny did a lot of good things in this round, but his Search & Destroy performances suffered. He struggled to slay consistently in both Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy, as both rounds ended in losses for Team Kaliber. His two Hardpoint rounds were very strong, however. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him play a consistently strong slaying game, as he finished 25/23. He also was key on the objective, as he allotted 1:19 there throughout the 250-217 win. His consistent play was key to keeping them close in the back and forth round. Round 4 Hardpoint was another strong round, though the majority of his good play came late in the win. They were trailing 150-70, and it seemed as though they would lose in four rounds. Kenny, Ferocitys, and Accuracy would turn the ship around and lead them to a 250-202 win. Kenny's 23/29 KD was underwhelming as a whole, but his quality play late in the round overcame his early struggles. Round 3 Capture the Flag was their worst round as a whole, as they lost 7-2 and were absolutely dominated from start to finish. Kenny went 15/21 with two flag caps leading the team in both categories. He put up a valiant fight, but they were outplayed by a wide margin in the round.
Consistently productive in win
July 4, 2018
Kenny was the most consistent Team Kaliber player in the 3-2 reverse sweep win over Red Reserve on Day 1, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had a strong performance in this match, even as they lost the first two rounds. He led his team in kills with 28 in Round 1 Hardpoint, and was the star of Team Kaliber, as Red Reserve dominated the objective. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him struggle through the five-game losing streak to open the round, but he had a strong performance from Game 6 on. He ended up taking over, and they won Games 6, 7, and 8 in large part due to his slaying. Despite his resurgence, they were not able to compete a comeback and lost the round in Game 9. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a tight overtime win, and Kenny really came alive in the later stages of the round. He ended up with 30 kills, and played some staunch defense in the win. Round 4 Hardpoint was another close win, and he was key in getting them back into it. They trailed 200-160, and it seemed as though a loss was right on the door step. Kenny really came alive at this point, and a strong slaying performance from then on got them the lead and, eventually, the win. He ended up with 38 kills in the round. Round 5 Search & Destroy was all Enable, as the rest of Team Kaliber filled in behind him.
Lags behind the rest of his team
July 3, 2018
Kenny fell behind in a 3-0 sweep of Team EnVyUs on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had an atypical game this series. The speedy SMG played surprisingly sluggishly, taking long flanks or focusing on off-lanes, which reflected in his KD. Another reason for his slow game came down to Kenny facing his former teammate, Chino, in Team EnVyUs. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Chino had a tendency to catch Kenny off-guard in mid-map or doing rotations. It wasn't until Round 3 Capture the Flag that Kenny's performance began to change, mainly thanks to him teaming with Ferocitys to take objectives. The extra support helped Kenny scout positions before challenging fights.
Blows away Rise Nation
June 15, 2018
Kenny completely dominated Rise Nation in a swift 3-0 win on Friday of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Kenny was the key this series. His classic aggression and absurd movement skills won the series for Team Kaliber. His domination began quickly in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Valkyrie. The map went by in a lighting quick six games thanks to Kenny landing a ten killstreak by Game 5, not dying once until Game 6. The absurd KD easily handed his team five straight games to cause an insurmountable lead. In Round 3 Captre the Flag, he would again have a hot start by scoring a flag capture and full Scorestreaks two minutes into the match.
Tragically close round losses take their toll
May 26, 2018
Kenny and the rest of Team Kaliber were unable to clutch up when it counted, resulting in Evil Geniuses sweeping Team Kaliber 3-0 on Thursday of Week 2 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had a hot start in Round 1 Hardpoint, where he scored the most kills of Team Kaliber with a KD of 33/30. Unfortunately, in competitive Call of Duty, kills aren't everything, and despite a valiant comeback attempt by Team Kaliber, Evil Geniuses shut down their hopes by a mere five seconds. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw a similar story, where Kenny and the rest of his team had a slow start but were able to push the round to a Game 11. However, the round would end tragically again for Team Kaliber, Kenny meanwhile ending the round with a negative KD of 5/8. Kenny sadly fell behind again in Round 3 Capture the Flag with a KD of 18/22, as yet another narrow round loss doomed Team Kaliber to be swept by Evil Geniuses 3-0.
Slow start in sweep loss
May 24, 2018
Kenny had a slow start to the sweep loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 2, Week 2, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had a very slow start to this match, putting together a rough Round 1 Hardpoint. He went 27/35 in the round, and managed just six seconds on the objective. He slayed rather well (the 27 kills were second on his team) but he really struggled to string any of them together. He was cut down by Team Kaliber early and often. He picked it up after that, though, putting in a nice Round 2 Search & Destroy showing. He went 5/2 through the first four games, and was one of the two best players on Team Kaliber in the 11-game loss. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him hold the joint-most kills on the team at 19, but he died 21 times. He simply could not break through the Team EnVyUs defenses in the round, leading to a 2-1 loss.
