More good than bad in close win
May 18, 2018
Apathy had three great rounds in the 3-2 win over Team EnVyUs, on Day 3 of Week 1 of Stage 2, CWL Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Apathy had a strong performance in this match, especially in their three round wins. Round 1 Hardpoint was a strong start for Apathy, and for Evil Geniuses. They got off to a hot start, taking the lead right out of the gate, and Apathy was a big part of that. He, Assault, and SiLLy were a dominant trio, and their strong slaying was what really put Evil Geniuses out ahead of Team EnVyUs. Apathy was the slayer of the three, as his 39 kills led the lobby. He paired that with a strong 1:18 on the objective, putting together an excellent showing. Round 2 Search & Destroy was more of the same, as Apathy played very well. However, SiLLy took the mantle as leader for Evil Geniuses. Apathy was a quality player in this round, and that depth helped put Evil Geniuses up 2-0. He really struggled the next two rounds, as Team EnVyUs easily forced a fifth round. That Round 5 Hardpoint was as dominant a display as Apathy and Evil Geniuses could have; they won 6-0, and Apathy went 11-0. He had the final kill in five of the six games, as well. It was a perfect display, especially after dropping the previous two rounds so easily.
Good Hardpoint in win
May 17, 2018
Apathy had two good Hardpoint rounds in the 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Day 2 of Week 1 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Apathy was a solid contributor for Evil Geniuses, but he was never in the spotlight; he fell into a more support-based role for Evil Geniuses, which was a big part of their win. Round 1 Hardpoint was a perfect example of his strong support play playing a key role in their win. His best run in the round came in the middle of the round, as the combination of him, Assault, and Aches paced Evil Geniuses and saw them really run away with the round. FaZe made multiple pushes, but that trio kept pushing them back and putting Evil Geniuses ahead. Round 4 Hardpoint was similar, where he was a key piece of their win, though Assault struggled and SILLy took the mantle of leader for Evil Geniuses. The middle rounds saw him struggle a little. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him have a hard time slaying with FaZe Clan, and Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him go 15/16. While the middle rounds were average at best, he book-ended them with solid Hardpoint rounds.
Defenses fall to fast attacks
April 23, 2018
Apathy faltered in pushing back Rise Nation in a back-to-back grand finals loss at the CWL Seattle Championships, losing the first series 3-1 and the second 3-0.
ANALYSIS
Apathy didn't have much time to save Evil Geniuses' sinking hopes. For all the plans he had cooked up meant little in the face of Rise Nation's absolute fury. Round 1 Hardpoint went well due to Evil Geniuses' tight rotations, but that would be the only positive for them this series. The first Round 2 Search & Destroy came surprisingly close but Apathy's lack of aggression hurt Evil Geniuses as Rise Nation could quietly build flanks. Round 3 Capture the Flag would be another close round that went into overtime, but Apathy wasn't able to really pressure Rise Nation's hot streak. After that, the series fell completely out of his control due to Rise Nation playing a blistering style that he simply couldn't keep up with.
Plays an aggressive defense
April 22, 2018
Apathy played an aggressive AR in a 3-0 win over eUnited on Sunday of CWL Seattle to advance to the grand finals.
ANALYSIS
Apathy and Assault handled AR duties for Evil Geniuses. Out of the two, Apathy was the far more aggressive player as he eagerly pushed spawns to punish eUnited's slow slaying. Apathy's aggression worked marvelously with Assault's more defensive gameplay. Assault could defend flanks and Apathy could land the kills, allowing the two players to easily defend points. The strong defensive slaying also meant Apathy could easily run out and push lanes right behind SiLLy and Aches. This strong emphasis on defense actually allowed Apathy to play more aggressive in Round 1 Hardpoint.
Cooks his enemies from afar
April 22, 2018
Apathy ripped Team EnVyUs with his AR in a 3-0 win on Saturday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Apathy may have been out of the conversation for Stage 1, but he's certainly has proved his worth this weekend. He's adjusted to the new meta quickly thanks in part by foregoing traditional AR roles of holding backline. Instead, Apathy was willing to push out lanes to take map control while having the flexibility to switch to SMGs on any given map. This key difference is what allowed him to dominate the early half of Round 2 Search & Destroy as he constantly played aggressive positions to deny his opponents space to set up. From there, Apathy was able to score three key first-bloods by Game 4.
Falters after strong first round
March 30, 2018
Apathy had a hot first round and not much else in the 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 1 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
Apathy had an incredible Round 1 Hardpoint. They led for the early portions of the round, and it was, in large part, due to him. He had a 23/12 KD as they hit 100 points, and they held on to a lead for a little while after due to him. However, OpTic Gaming woke up, and went on a huge run to win the round. Apathy struggled after that, however, from Round 2 Search & Destroy where they did not win a game, to Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint. Apathy could never reach the heights of his strong first-round performance in this match.
Strong bookend performances
March 22, 2018
Apathy had a good first and fourth round in the 3-1 loss to Splyce on Day 2 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint were clearly Apathy's best rounds. He helped pace Evil Geniuses in the first round, and gave them their first big lead with a kill streak. He finished with a strong 36/32. His fourth round performance was similarly strong, finishing 38/37. However, he could not do enough to prevent Splyce's impressive comeback, from down 198-106 to a 250-225 win. He had a middling-at-best showing in the middle rounds, which were a pair of Splyce wins. Overall, it was an average performance, with his Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag performances dragging him down.
Strong respawns in loss
March 16, 2018
Apathy had great respawn rounds, but it did not prevent Evil Geniuses from losing 3-1 to FaZe Clan on Day 2 of Week 3 of CWL Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was a struggle for him, and for most of Evil Geniuses. They quickly went down 5-1, and came all the way back to 5-4 before losing the 10th game on the back of Aches and NAMELESS. He held behind them, but it was mostly a round filled with struggles. The rest of his performance was very good, however, despite the 3-1 loss. He was a positive player in each round, whether it was his 68 combined kills in Round 1 and Round 4 Hardpoint, or his staunch defensive play in Round 3 Capture the Flag, their only round win.
Search & Destroy becomes the Apathy show
March 15, 2018
Apathy clearly didn't care about the enemy team he single-handedly destroyed in Search & Destroy during Evil Geniuses' 3-0 sweep of Team EnVyUs on Wednesday in the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Apathy was a cold, effective killing machine throughout Evil Geniuses' whole series against Team EnVyUs, but one round stood out from him more than others, which was Round 2 Search & Destroy. In that round, Apathy simply slaughtered Team EnVyUs, becoming a one-man army and leaving his team in the dust with a KD of 14/3. His other performances weren't bad, either. In Round 1 Hardpoint, he went positive with a KD of 32/30 while notching 49 seconds of hardpoint control time. Meanwhile, in Round 3 Capture the Flag, he netted two important flag captures for Evil Geniuses, while also tallying an impressive KD at 24/18.
One good round in bad loss
March 9, 2018
Apathy had one good round as Evil Geniuses were swept by Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was his only good round. He was a monster in the middle of the round, getting the final kill in Games 5, 6, and 8. He put them in a position to win, but a late surge by Luminosity stopped that. The rest of the performance was bad, however. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him get woefully outslayed as they blew a late lead to lose 250-188, and Round 3 Capture the Flag was a disaster. After losing back-to-back rounds after having good leads, Evil Geniuses looked out of gas, and Luminosity used it to finish them off. Apathy's Search & Destroy was excellent, but that was his entire game in this match.
A Search & Destroy slaying machine
February 16, 2018
Apathy got a monstrous score in one of the Search & Destroy rounds of Evil Geniuses' series against UNILAD, heavily contributing to Evil Geniuses' 3-2 overall victory over them on Day 5 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Apathy didn't start the series out so hot against UNILAD, as in Round 1 Hardpoint he only managed to score a negative 21/22 KD. However, Apathy's fortunes quickly turned in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he dropped a massive double-positive KD bomb of 13/5 onto UNILAD, even scoring a couple of bomb plants in the process. Apathy continued to shine in Round 3 Capture the Flag, with a game-winning flag capture and a nearly double-positive KD with 33/17. Apathy started to dwindle in Round 4 Hardpoint with the least hardpoint control time of his team at 35 seconds, and a mere 23/30 KD. Evil Geniuses clutched a Game 11 in Round 5 Search & Destroy, and despite Apathy's negative KD of 7/9 that round, his handling of the bomb (including five bomb plants) proved invaluable in their victory.
Shows a silver lining in defeat to Splyce
February 16, 2018
Even as his team Evil Geniuses were swept aside by Splyce on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B, Apathy went out with some dignity, performing the best of his team.
ANALYSIS
Although Apathy was as helpless as the rest of Evil Geniuses when Splyce escorted them into the 100-point club in Round 1 Hardpoint, Apathy at least got the best KD of his team at 27/29. Apathy went on to at least perform marginally better than the rest of his team in Round 2 Search & Destroy, with a KD of 4/5 and a bomb plant, although considering Splyce took six straight games this round, that's not saying much. Apathy again performed the best of his team in Round 3 Capture the Flag, earning an impressive (at the time) 25/18 KD and the sole flag capture to Evil Geniuses' scoreboard that round. But in the end, it didn't even matter as Splyce still claimed victory after a surprisingly lengthy overtime stretch.
Dominant Search & Destroy in win
February 14, 2018
Apathy had a Search & Destroy for the ages in the sweep win over eUnited to finish off Tuesday's CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1 matches.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was not Apathy's best round in terms of kills, but he had an incredible effort on the objective. He had over two minutes on the objective, and was a big reason why they got out to such a hot start. He went to the Hardpoint right away, and that allowed Evil Geniuses to stay a step ahead of eUnited, in terms collecting objective time, especially early in the round. He had an incredible performance in Round 2 Search & Destroy, notching 14 straight kills before his first death in Game 7. He had an ace in the first game, the final kill in Games 2 and 3. He was amazing at every turn in the round, and eUnited had no answer. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him and NAMELESS lead Evil Geniuses, with Apathy providing a very stable defensive force in the overtime win.
Respawn struggles in sweep loss
February 7, 2018
Apathy had a nice Search & Destroy round, but that was it in the sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming to cap off Tuesday's CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1, matches.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag were poor rounds for Apathy. The former saw him go 22/30 while Evil Geniuses limped to a 250-83 loss. It was a round to forget on an individual level for Apathy, and as a group for Evil Geniuses. Round 3 Capture the Flag was much closer -- they lost 1-0 -- but it still housed the same rough showing for Apathy. He went 11/18, and struggled to do much of anything against Luminosity. It was a tough round for him. His only good performance came in Round 2 Search & Destroy. He picked it up late game, after they went down 5-2. He had the final kill in Games 9 and 10, forcing a Game 11 and completing a strong run by Evil Geniuses. They ended up losing the 11th game, however.
Fumbles with the objective
February 6, 2018
Apathy's mastery of objectives faltered in a tense 3-2 win over Epsilon eSports on Day 2 of the CWL Pro League Stage 1, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Apathy kept a cool head throughout this series, which likely helped his team's moral as Epsilon eSports continually upset Evil Geniuses' plans. Apathy acted as his team's anchor in this extremely scrappy match. Dutifully playing his role to hold spawns for his team, his map control faltered at times in Hardpoint. In Round 4 Hardpint, in particular, Apathy lost a key rotation to Epsilon eSports due to devastating flank by Hawqeh as he tried to rush the final Hardpoint. But in Round 3 Capture the Flag, that relentless attitude also allowed Apathy to score three flag captures.
