Former coach for the 2019 Call of Duty World Champions eUnited team, Brice “Faccento” Faccento, announced he will be forming an esports talent agency. The agency is named Bad Moon Talent and will feature former Activision Blizzard Esports Senior Manager of Programming Andrew Drake as a co-founder. The talent agency has already revealed they will be representing Jordan “JKap” Kaplan, Ian “Enable” Wyatt, and Donovan “Temp” Laroda for the upcoming franchised 2020 Call of Duty League.

Brice Faccento started his competitive career in 2012 and has since played for organizations like SoaR Gaming, Orbit Esports, Elevate, Rise Nation, Echo Fox, G2 Esports, and Evil Geniuses. He most recently took on a coaching role at eUnited in April of 2019. North American esports organization eUnited later went on to place 2nd at 2019’s CWL London and 5-6th at CWL Anaheim. Then the team ended up winning the 2019 Call of Duty World League Championships to top it off.
“Throughout my tenure as an esport professional, there has been a continual lack of proper representation for myself and my fellow colleagues,” described Brice Faccento on his future career path. “With the experience and expertise that my partner and I have acquired over [the] years of being deeply embedded within the esports scene, Bad Moon Talent is here to fill that void.”
One day after the organization revealed Faccento would be leaving, the two individuals revealed the talent agency creation. The players currently represented only consist of the Call of Duty scene. However, the website describes future clients as also from esports leagues like Overwatch and Fortnite.
His partner is another long-time esports industry veteran named Andrew Drake. Graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Science in advertising, Drake went on to work for DDB, Deutsch, and finally Activision. While at Activision Blizzard, he worked on the marketing side for Call of Duty. His work also later included the content side for the Call of Duty World League and Overwatch League. He also has experience in talent management and negotiation after working with 40+ talent in four esports leagues while at Activision Blizzard Esports.
Interested players can contact Bad Moon Talent for consulting services or player & broadcast talent management on their website. With the long-time experience held by the two individuals on both the client and management side, this is perfect with the approaching franchised league.
