Kenneth 'K-Brad' Bradley joins team Evil Geniuses

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • April 4, 2014 at 12:32 p.m. PDT

It was announced today by CoolGrayAJ over on Twitter that Kenneth "K-Brad" Bradley is now the newest member of Team Evil Geniuses.

K-Brad has made a name for himself by proving he is a very strong Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 player. Most recently, the top level Cammy player took home 1st place at SoCal Regionals 2014, defeating the EVO 2012 champion, Infiltration, in the grand finals.

The new Evil Geniuses member stated that he is happy to be a part of the team, and gives credit to Justin Wong for making it happen. "Over the years, I've become good friends with the EG players, most especially Justin Wong, whom I would credit in getting me here in the first place," K-Brad says. "I am truly thankful to have great teammates like Eduardo, Ricky and Justin. I couldn't be any happier if I tried.”

K-Brad joins fellow Street Fighter players Justin Wong, Ricky Ortiz, PR Balrog, Momochi, and Choco Blanka on the team.

Hit the jump to check out Justin and Ricky's personal statements on the addition of K-Brad, and CoolGrayAJ's tweet.

Justin Wong: Before I knew KBrad personally, I saw him grow as a player first. He was a new player who grinded a lot but as time passed he became a beast and was able to achieve what most players can't. I'm glad he is on our team and if hope to grow with him in fighting games in general.

Ricky Ortiz: I'm so happy to hear that my good friend Kenneth Bradley is joining the EG Familia! Let me tell you, I've seen this guy on the scene since the beginning of his time and he has grown so much as a player and as a friend. No longer will I call him the "Demi-God", I will call him Godlike! Let's kick some butt and make EG proud, brother!

Wow,m this is surprise, But at the same time not a big one. Makes sense, since K Brad has really leveled up recently. Congrats to K Brad!

It's an upgrade from Floe.

Those potential epic team battles are looking real right now with team EG, RZR, MadCatz, GEM, etc.

Now K-brad wants in!

BushidoV1 said on April 4, 2014 at 12:53 p.m.

I'm gonna call it like I see it. K Brad is going to be the new floe once Cammy is no longer top tier. At that point he will become the new comic relief dude.

Good choice for EG. Man is consistent and probably most important is that he's a personable and funny guy. I never saw EG picking someone up purely on their gaming skill like Chris G who doesn't have really a presence in front of a camera like K-Brad. SCR and his recent exposure in ESGN is what lead to this.

I think EG will be pretty shocked about his sudden "decline" in Ultra

#20
SAOTOME2U said on April 4, 2014 at 12:59 p.m.

This decision makes sense. Granted we all despise Cammy (p'tooie!), but with KBrad's personality and how he's been bulldozering all over the place recently, it really makes sense. Congrats to KBrad -- fellow east coaster & MD player. May have run across him in my years over here.

#21
NissanZaxima said on April 4, 2014 at 1:01 p.m.

That retirement that EH first broke news of sure lasted long!

#22
FuriouS said on April 4, 2014 at 1:02 p.m.

I very much doubt that since KBrad is passionate about Street Fighter and will learn other characters, while floe never really gave a flying f**k about it and prefered to play casual games

#23
AdamBomb said on April 4, 2014 at 1:05 p.m.

It will be a lot of fun to watch for sure! GEM is not a team though, so they won't be in those team tournaments

But in all seriousness, congrats to K-Brad. Wish you luck on your future endeavors, man.

FuriouS said on April 4, 2014 at 1:12 p.m.

btw fgc is definitely EGs strongest presence by far. Its funny the recent achievements on their homepage always filled up with Rog, Justin and Ricky, since their other divisions dont win sh*t, excuse my French, least of all their Starcraft division

#30
beast_gief said on April 4, 2014 at 1:14 p.m.

Ya, and then he found Cammy and he magically didn't retire.

once ultra comes out and cammy is nerfed, he will fade into meaninglessness.

Yep!

#37
yllwcat_redcat said on April 4, 2014 at 1:37 p.m.

Cammy is not really going to change in ultra. Regardless, Kbrad is a really smart player, so he deserves the sponsorship.

TwoBears77 said on April 4, 2014 at 2:14 p.m.

EG KBrad. I suppose that in retrospect it shouldn't have been surprising that a major team sponsor picked him up. The guy's stock has been on the rise lately. Good on him.

With PR Balrog, Justin Wong, Ricky Ortiz and now KBrad, team Evil Geniuses is looking like a top team. Cool stuff.

#47

Chris_P_Links said on April 4, 2014 at 2:43 p.m.

Some people need to go review fanatiq discussing sponsorship...it's about return on investment and kbrad is a personality on top of a strong player it's not all about tournament results...all this kbrad fading after ultra talk is comical.

#53
nusense said on April 4, 2014 at 2:47 p.m.

Yep, that's why you don't see Chris g picked up by a bigger team or these so called godlike Japanese players getting sponsorship.

#55
BadNewsVegas said on April 4, 2014 at 2:50 p.m.

I'm so glad that some else actually recognize that and pointed it out. I feel like a lot of good players get discredited because they use Cammy as a main.

KBrad is a very strong Cammy player for all the facts that Etrotman points out. Though I have just recently started taking SF seriously I modeled my play style from his. That's not to say I think he is better then Alioune but I think his play style fits a certain thought process rather then being "flow chart".

If he does stay with Cammy in Ultra i'm sure he would still be a top player regardless of her damage being nerfed or not. Congrats Kbrad

#56
getsaltier said on April 4, 2014 at 2:56 p.m.

Well, I guess this now makes Ricky the most likely to be cut from the roster.

xYomiLord420x said on April 4, 2014 at 2:59 p.m.

Congrats to Kbrad, it looks like EG will have 3 Chun players when Ultra Drops.

#58

EG will drop chocoblanka and momochi before that..

#59
bagel_bytez said on April 4, 2014 at 3:04 p.m.

Yah personally I would save that sponsor ship till after usf4 when cammy's nerfed... Kbrad seams friendly but annoying, and plays a braindead character

I couldn't help but read K-brads quotes out loud in Shaq Voice.... NAILED IT

#62
kaeshi said on April 4, 2014 at 3:24 p.m.

yeah think they jumped the gun on this. Delayed wakeup will just expose him for a guy that can only do the most basic of cammy combos and mixups. Without the mixup game hes gonna get annihilated.

#63
TwoBears77 said on April 4, 2014 at 3:52 p.m.

Yes they would drop those two first, but I don't see that as likely to happen. This is the team that, for some reason, keeps iNcontroL around, and he doesn't do anything but play with his Warhammer 40k set these days. EG seems to have a thing for sentimentality, at least when it comes to certain individuals.

#64
Doctrine_Dark said on April 4, 2014 at 4:03 p.m.

I really like K-Brad! Congrats to him.

Well, you are calling it wrong. KBrad knows more than one character and has impressive match up knowledge.

#67
ReddChief said on April 4, 2014 at 4:26 p.m.

Wow didn't see this coming, most people thought it would be Chris G but still good choice and congrats to K-Brad he deserved it.

weird, I thought he was already one of the most traveled players the past year or so.

Damn, either he gets offers everyday or hes always out shopping for the best deals

#71
Burnt said on April 4, 2014 at 5:15 p.m.

I think he fits pretty good in EG, nice pick. Would like to see him use more back ups sometimes though since he knows the cast so well

#72
Wedge said on April 4, 2014 at 5:22 p.m.

One of the best personalities out there, be glad to see him at as many tournaments as possible.

#73
ishh said on April 4, 2014 at 5:57 p.m.

didn't he retire

#74
Ootori_Kyouya said on April 4, 2014 at 5:58 p.m.

Absolutely well deserved. He earned his way to joined a good team. People can say that he only got there with Cammy, but I don't see any other Cammy players win tournaments except for Qanba|Xiao Hai.

#75
JELIFISH19 said on April 4, 2014 at 6:04 p.m.

Delayed wakeup doesn't affect Cammy. You can only use it on hard knockdowns and Cammy only gets hard knockdowns from a throw. You always had two wakeup options against her. If he's winning the with the most basic combos and mixups, that must make him a pretty smart player since he's not relying on gimmicks and her damage.

#76
ponyz said on April 4, 2014 at 6:23 p.m.

please remember that he picks the top tier and wants to win the game, if cammy isn't enough for him he can make the switch if he wants, maybe to decapre

#77
jimmyeatsquaids said on April 4, 2014 at 7:09 p.m.

k-brad is winning with the most basic combos and mixups, because that's all you need. it's too easy to get her stuff going which is 1 reason why k-brad is so successful with her.

but don't get me wrong, k-brad is an excellent player, still I think he will have a much more difficult time in USFIV.

HeatEXTEND said on April 4, 2014 at 7:42 p.m.

EMP pls :_;7

EMP is the official farm system for EG now. Maybe they'll pick up Dieminion next so he can get out of France. Kappa

lol what he been playing cammy and beat infiltration after he was on a rampage.... sit down ronald mcdonald eat ya happy meal

#81
Kelshou said on April 5, 2014 at 3:11 a.m.

You didn't see other Cammy plyers win tournaments besides Kbrad and Xiao Hai?! Popi, Breno Fighters...

And just like Kbrad they all wouldn't have won tournaments without Cammy.

#82
colossus said on April 5, 2014 at 3:32 a.m.

Let's face it- K-Brad is a bad player without defense. Every hit against him feels like unblockable.

#83
battlesong said on April 5, 2014 at 7:33 a.m.

K-Brad's old sponsor was FNEX, but I've never seen any other players with this tag or seen anything else by FNEX. Could someone explain what the hell FNEX is/was?? A team like Empire Arcadia or a company like Madcatz/Razr?? What the hell do they do? And now that K-Brad is gone, is FNEX finished?

#84
Bookerjj said on April 5, 2014 at 8:41 p.m.

FNEX is not a sponsor but a club/team, much like EMP its just a club/team. One of the founding members of FNEX, Dayashathirsts (A fighting youtube personality, well.. used to be), is his closet friends, in which he was a groomsman at his wedding.

#85

LOL!

AKumahMatata said on April 6, 2014 at 5:32 p.m.

i thought KBrad said he wouldnt join a sponsor if the entire FNEX team doesnt go with it. well i guess they encouraged him to take it? on another note, i dont like that EG is taking so many players. i dont want EG to have the same fate as AGE :( happy for KBrad though.
