Ryan Danford (born October 20, 1985) is a professional AmericanHalo player known by the handle Saiyan. He began competing in May 2004. Currently retired from professional gaming, he was a member of the Major League Gaming 4-on-4 team Final Boss during the 2006 season. In June 2006, he signed a three-year contract with Major League Gaming, but filed for free agency after the 2006 season's conclusion. He was also shown on many of the Boost Mobile MLG Pro Circuit episodes on USA Network in 2006.
One of the true veterans of the league, Saiyan has been a force in Major League Gaming's upper echelon since its onset. Saiyan joined Final Boss' powerful squad at the start of the 2005 season, and has been an instrumental key to their success. A perfectionist at heart, Saiyan is never satisfied with mere victory. He is consumed by thoughts of how plays could have been performed better, faster, and more effectively. While exceptionally self-critical, it is his strive for superlative excellence that motivates Saiyan and keeps him at the peak of competition.
Perhaps the most humble player in the league, Saiyan's low-key personality permeates his gameplay. Occupying Final Boss' supporting role, Saiyan is entirely focused on aiding his teammates and spurring the team toward victory. With incredible reflexes and a watchful eye on his teammates' screens, Saiyan provides assistance before his allies have time to ask. While he does little to bring attention to himself, his superb teamwork and selfless gameplay cannot be overlooked.
