Rolex is a professional Project M Snake player from Medford, New York. He was considered one of the top 2 Snake players in the world in his prime, along with Professor Pro, and has had strong tournament results, including a 4th place finish at Apex 2014 and top 8 finishes at many KTAR events, and several first place finishes in doubles. He has taken sets off of renowned players such as Pink Fresh, Leffen, and DJ Nintendo in tournament.

Playing style[edit]

Rolex is known for his mastery of Project M Snake's punish game. He is very proficient at tech chases and chaingrabs with Snake's throws, and utilizes many creative KO setups and flashy combos with Snake, often ending with sticking a C4 on the opponent, using an up tilt or aerial to knock them close to the upper blast line, then detonating it. Rolex is also excellent in doubles, having solid synergy with top players such as Mew2King and ZeRo, and has had several first place finishes when teaming with them.

However, Rolex has a less proficient neutral game compared to other players of his caliber, as he frequently approaches with unsafe aerials and explosives, and relies on the opponent giving openings to him by falling into these moves. Additionally, he is more susceptible to pressure than most other players, and sometimes self-destructs at crucial moments, such as during his money match with Professor Pro. Rolex also has problems with adaptation, leading to his struggle against players with stronger cerebral games such as the aforementioned Professor Pro, ZeRo, and Mew2King.
