Biography

Falcated currently resides in California.

Halo 5: Guardians

Falcated emerged onto the scene in late 2015, during the qualifying stages for the HWC NA Regional Finals. His highest placing in a qualifier was top 16 with Velocity eSports. Forced to play in the Last Chance Qualifier after failing to earn enough points, he found himself on the legendary Str8 Rippin alongside Tsquared, Gilkey and Tragic. Str8 fell short of their goal, placing top 32 when they needed to place 1st to qualify.

Falcated then set his sights on qualifying for the Summer 2016 Pro League. On team No Barber But We Tapen alongside EccentriK, Exemplify and CClaim, he finished top 16 in the Last Chance Qualifier, again falling short of his goal. He then joined Team eLevate alongside Danoxide, Heinz and Randa for the Open Circuit. After a strong start in the the circuit, Danoxide left eLevate as he was picked up by Team Liquid in the Pro League. eLevate recruited Renegade JW and played a week with him on board. Falcated then left eLevate to join French Toast Mafia alongside Rammyy, Cloud and Gabriel. Prior to Week 5 of the Open Circuit, French Toast Mafia were signed by Denial eSports. In the final Legendary Cup of the season, Falcated had the opportunity to play alongside another legend as OGRE2 subbed in for Rammyy. Going into the Open Circuit Finals as the #1 seeded team, Denial lived up to their expectations, winning close series against Trash Cans and 3sUP Enterprises en route to qualifying for the Pro League Relegation tournament. In the Relegation event, Denial came out hot, defeating OpTic Gaming 4-2, putting themselves only one win away from a berth in the Fall 2016 Season. Unfortunately, they were swept by Team Liquid in the following round and defeated 4-2 by OpTic in a Losers' Finals rematch, thus narrowly missing out on qualification.

Despite his team's failure to qualify, Falcated did eventually find himself on a team in the Fall Pro League, being picked up by Team Allegiance alongside ContrA, PreDevoNatoR and Shooter. After a poor start to the season, Shooter made the untimely decision to leave the team, leaving Allegiance unable to attend HCS Orange County 2016. Allegiance then finalized its roster, picking up Str8 SicK from the Open Circuit. Their fortunes did not improve, as they ultimately finished in 8th place with a 3-11 record, facing Relegation. At HCS Las Vegas 2016, a different Team Allegiance showed up, defeating multiple pro teams and finishing 3rd overall. At Relegation, Allegiance lost to Enigma6 Group but were able to defeat The MoneyMatches Team and 3sUP to save their spot.

During the offseason, Falcated left Allegiance, eventually forming a team with bubu dubu, Shooter and Shotzzy. Despite carrying over two members from the Enigma6 roster, bubu's team was denied the pro seed in a controversial series of events which ended up awarding the seed to Pnda Gaming, featuring Cratos and team manager Showtime. Falcated's team began using the name Inconceivable following this. The new roster's first event together was UGC St. Louis 2017, where they battled out of the Open Bracket and took a top 6 placing, ultimately being eliminated by Str8 Rippin. At ME Las Vegas 2017, Inconceivable, now under the Splyce organization, looked to qualify for Halo World Championship 2017 with a placing of at least top 6. Unfortunately for Splyce, they were unable to qualify after losses to OpTic Gaming and Luminosity Gaming sent them home with a top 8 finish. At Worlds, Splyce were placed in a pool with Team EnVyUs and Team Immunity. Splyce pulled off an early upset when they defeated Team EnVyUs 3-1 in the opening match of the night and went on to win the pool. In the bracket, Splyce were taken out early in a 4-3 loss to Luminosity Gaming. They then swept SoaR Gaming and defeated FAB Games eSports 4-1 before losing a close 4-3 match to Str8 Rippin and going home with a top 6 finish.

After Worlds, Falcated parted ways with Splyce and joined Evil Geniuses alongside Roy, Lunchbox and Naded. At UMG Daytona, EG finished in the top 12 after losses to OpTic, Str8 and Luminosity, managing only to beat eRa Eternity in bracket play. The following week, both Naded and Towey announced their retirement, paving the way for the acquisition of Mexican phenom Tapping Buttons and the return of OGRE2 in a coaching position. EG struggled for most of the Summer 2017 season, posting a 3-4 record and finishing in fifth place, high enough to bypass the Relegation phase. At the DreamHack Atlanta Finals, EG were upset early by Oxygen Supremacy in a 3-2 loss. After wins over Str8 Rippin, Team Infused and Luminosity Gaming, EG took a hard 3-0 loss from Team EnVyUs and finished in the top six.

Rather than making a roster change, EG went into the Fall 2017 season with an identical roster. They struggled harder than they had in the Summer, finishing in sixth with a record of 2-5. At the DreamHack Denver Finals, EG were defeated in the second round by Team Liquid. In the Elimination Bracket, EG defeated Team CryptiK in a close five-game series before falling to Luminosity Gaming 3-0 and finishing in the top eight. Following DreamHack Denver, the EG roster was released by the organization.

EG disbanded during the offseason, leaving Falcated and Tapping Buttons to team up with Shooter and Artic for Halo World Championship 2018 season.

Trivia

  • Falcated and his duo Shottzy were undefeated in 2v2s throughout Halo 2: Anniversary only losing one match on record to Spartan and Ninja.
  • Falcated is well known for his 4s and 2s prowess.
