KPAN is a Melee Falco main who has been playing competitively since 2012. Training with other students and top players at Georgia Tech, Kevin quickly grew to prominence to become one of the best Falco players in Georgia and the Southeast.
In 2015, KPAN was a member of Georgia Tech's team for The Melee Games, along with Druggedfox, Baka4moe, Awstintacious, and Bravo. After fighting their way to the finals they finished 2nd overall, losing to UC Irvine.
Rape conviction and ban
During GENESIS 5, KPAN and NorCal Melee/Smash 4 player A Bird (Hannah) shared a hotel room, the latter under the pretense that their relationship was purely platonic. During their stay, KPAN coerced Hannah into having sex with him after a long series of uncomfortable interactions, and attempted to initiate again the following night, despite a clear lack of consent. About a year later, Hannah reported him to the Smash Code of Conduct, which eventually gave him a 5 year ban from major tournaments for sexual assault. This ban was forwarded to only TOs and was not revealed to the public, due to KPAN's threats of legal action against the Code of Conduct committee.
KPAN would later post an account of his own, which claimed that Hannah was not telling the entire truth about the situation. The majority of community members, however, corroborate Hannah's side of the story, claiming that KPAN is lying and deliberately downplaying certain parts of the encounter.
Despite his ban, he still enters local tournaments under the tags "fallingrocks" and "itspancaketime."
