Biography

Halo Reach

Kaiss began his career attending MLG Raleigh 2011 on W3G Balance placing 27th. He would later attend MLG Orlando 2011 on Fraggin Foreigners placing 15th and forming a duo with veteran player PreDevoNator. They would both attend the MLG Providence Championships 2011 and place 14th. After the Championships, Kaiss rejoined with veteran player MuNoZ forming Severance alongside Devon, FilthyG and Gabriel. Gabriel had been known to captain all of the Severance rosters leading up to this. They would place 13th-16th respectively at the MLG Winter Championship 2012, solidifying their semi-professional status during Halo Reach.

Halo 5: Guardians

After years of not attending any events, Kaiss returned to competition, joining Team Solstice alongside Xrossfade, Blaze, and team captain Stress. Blaze and Stress had just won EGLX 2016, taking place in Canada, and had set their sights on 2050 Chattanooga. They finished top 16 at the event, failing to emerge from Pool Play. Making a minor team change, the squad would go ahead and pick up Top Ducky to replace Blaze. The squad would then attend the next event in the season, HCS Orange County 2016. They placed top 12 at this event, marking an improvement.

On December 19th, 2016, Kaiss announced that he had joined the recently formed Real Fear Gaming with Demon D, Eli Elite, and SORR3LL.
