The next match would be an easy 2-0, but afterwards they would be forced to play eX Black. They again lost out 2-0 and finish out with a 13th-16th placing.
After taking some time off Rob attended Iron Games Daytona 2015, this time as apart of The Aquarium. The team would be made up of himself, future world championship contenders, bubu dubu and Commonly, as well as Exemplify. The team got all the way to pool play, defeating the early Astral Authority 2-0.

Round 2 would slow down the momentum however, as the Nighthawks, led by Stress, would demolish The Aquarium 3-0 sending them to the losers'. They would then lead into the next match out for vengeance. The once dominant Reality Check would crumble falling 3-0 and being knocked out. Daytona would get their revenge dishing out a devastating 3-0, ending their tournament life. They would go out with a 4th place finish, making a strong statement at the opener.
