Biography[edit | edit source]

Paquette previously resided in Westfield, Massachusetts. Known as one of the original streamers of Smite, Paquette and Drew "Lassiz" Boyd were one of the few streamers that streamed Smite during the early beta of the game. He is known for his support/guardian plays and extensive knowledge of the game's mechanics, having played for 'ROOT Gaming' who is now 'Team Dignitas', 'Reason Gaming' and 'Juice Gaming'.

He began Smite as a streamer, then becoming involved in the competitive scene, joining Reason Gaming with Boyd. On December 23, 2012, Paquette and Boyd departed from Reason Gaming to join Juice Gaming, then considered the world's premier SMITE team. As of February 7, 2013, ROOT Gaming acquired the roster of Juice Gaming with Paquette playing as left lane support with Alex "Shing" Rosa as left lane carry. On June 17, 2013, Paquette announced that he was kicked of ROOT on Reddit, stating that he was kicked due to his attitude, quote, "blunt and forward and bad manner".

After taking a month hiatus from the competitive scene of Smite, on July 18, 2013, Paquette returned to the competitive scene as a manager/coach of COGnitive Gaming, managing the former SNIPE Gaming. As of December 13, 2013, COGnitive Gaming dropped their current roster and acquired the roster of Exertus eSports, though roster has changed, Paquette will remain the manager of 'COGnitive Gaming' and 'COGnitive Red'.
