Evil Geniuses
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.
Doing enough to bring his team wins
December 9, 2017
Apathy didn't put up any gaudy numbers in Evil Geniuses' 3-1 win over Ghost Gaming on Day 2 of CWL Dallas, but it was more than enough for a win.
ANALYSIS
Apathy, being fueled by the desire to prove his doubter wrong, is showing why numbers aren't all that matters at the end of the day. He didn't have the highest number of kills by any means in these games, but he was playing incredibly decisive to help his team get the wins. This included picking up the only cap in Capture the Flag for the 1-0 win that put them on the brink of victory. With EG playing well as a unit, Apathy is well on his way to shutting down the naysayers with a nice finish in Dallas.
Finds organization for new year
September 22, 2017
Apathy will officially join Evil Geniuses to begin the new season.
ANALYSIS
It makes sense this roster would sign on with Evil Geniuses, with NAMELESS having played for the well-known organization for all of last year. While Apathy comes with the least amount of fanfare compared to the two other players, Aches and Enable, who joined EG, Apathy is a former World Champion having won the title in 2016. In other words, it would be unwise to sleep on him, and Apathy could also be the No. 2 slayer on the team behind Enable come the start of the new season, making for an interesting name to consider in fantasy formats.
Free Agent
Joins team with Aches
August 30, 2017
Apathy is set to join Aches on his new roster for Call of Duty: World War II, his new teammate announced on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Apathy wasn't in the free agent pool for long. Only a couple days after officially announcing his release from Team EnVyUs, Apathy is set to join Aches on a new roster alongside former FaZe Clan in-game leader Enable, and potentially former Evil Geniuses in-game NAMELESS. While the leadership on the roster could cause some headbutting, it's also clear this team is comprised of two key factors: talent and knowledge. Especially in WWII, where the Call of Duty franchise will transition back to "boots on the ground" after a three-year hiatus, knowledge of the game and respawns will likely be an even bigger factor in terms of win condition. While this new team does not have an organization currently, given the names on it and their potential heading into to the new year, it's a no-brainer that Apathy and company will fall under a major org banner in due time.
Makes third from EnVyUs in free agency
August 27, 2017
Apathy will join two of his other former Team EnVyUs teammates in free agency, the player announced on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
The move seemed like only a matter of time, as both John and Jkap announced their free agency earlier in the evening. It's worth pointing out that Apathy didn't seem too eager to leave Team EnVyUs, confirming what's been assumed all along --- Slasher is in control of the roster moves at the moment. Much like the rest of his former brethren, Apathy's not expected to be in the free agency pool for long and is expected to be on a contending team to begin the new competitive season.
Stumbles and falls in finals
August 14, 2017
Apathy slayed to his wit's end only to lose a double series Grand Finals to Optic Gaming at the 2017 CWL Championships, scoring a 71/73 KD in the first series and a 57/58 KD in the second series.
ANALYSIS
Apathy and SlasheR were the main slaying force for Team EnVyUs, and in some cases, the team's only slaying potential. The only round Team EnVyUs won would be the first series Round 2 Search & Destroy on Throwback. And it was thanks to Apathy. Dropped a huge 11/3 KD, Apathy played a slow and calculated game even as OpTic Gaming tried to rush Team EnVyUs with smoke grenades. Oddly, this same calculated gameplay wasn't implemented well in subsequent series, either playing too slow or too fast. For example, in the second series Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback, Apathy stood outside of the third Barn point for about ten seconds while waiting for his teammates to push, even though this allowed OpTic Gaming to build map control and points. This overfocus on team fighting is what doomed Apathy in the end as it gave OpTic Gaming far too much control over the pace of the game. SlasheR.
Works as a deadly unit with team
August 13, 2017
Apathy destroys with teamwork with a 65/60 KD in a win over eUnited on Day 4 of CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Apathy may have not had a massive stand-out performance, but his excellent teamwork clutched the win. This series saw an old-school Team EnVyUs where Apathy was the head of the unit, front-and-center with his SMG and calling the shots. This was best seen in Round 4 Hardpoint on Retaliation where he was absurdly smooth with his shots and a 24/13 KD. He scored several four killstreaks across the round, meaning he was constantly out-trading eUnited . This allowed Apathy to surpass eUnited's hundred-point lead to clinch the win. Round 3 Uplink saw Apathy's leadership as he made the call-outs for his teammates. His command saw him chain 12 points in under four minutes.
Has no apathy for opponents in big win
August 12, 2017
Apathy put up a 60/52 KD in Team EnVyUs's win over Ghost Gaming that put them in the winners semifinals of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Throughout this series, Apathy was constantly cleaning up shop for his team. Whenever someone would fall off and stop contributing, Apathy would slide right in and play the part of the hero. This happened in both Round 2 Search & Destroy and in Round 3 Uplink. With such a multifaceted attack coming from this squad, there was just nothing at all that Ghost Gaming could do to stop it. With the dominating sweep, EnVyUs are through to the winners semifinals to face eUnited to continue their bid to repeat as World Champions.
Distances himself from kill streaks
August 11, 2017
Apathy focused on objects in a 3-1 victory over Epsilon eSports on Day 3 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Apathy didn't attempt to hog the glory as a prepared Epsilon eSports forced him to group with his team. After getting whipped in Round 1 Hardpoint, Team EnVyUs refocused their tactics to focus on the objectives and teamwork, both things which Apathy is a wizard at. This was easily seen in the second half of Round 3 Uplink on Frost with Apathy blasting a triple kill alongside JKap in Epsilon eSports' base. The set of kills easily turned the game into Apathy's favor as SlasheR quickly capitalized with a dunk. From there, Apathy helped set up a grand rally of 10 points as each member rotated around the map.
A slaying machine in the respawn game modes
August 3, 2017
Apathy was the best slayer of his team in the respawn game modes against eUnited in the Winner's Final of the Stage 2 Playoffs, scoring an impressive overall KD of 61/56.
ANALYSIS
Apathy's slaying game was on point in the respawn game modes, although his Search & Destroy performance might be a potentially exploitable weakness in the future. He came out swinging in Round 1 Hardpoint, easily keeping eUnited from taking key Hardpoints and notching a 26/21 KD for himself. As mentioned before, his Search & Destroy play needs work, for during Round 2 Search & Destroy for this series he would only wind up with a negative KD of 2/8, often the first to die in many of the games of that round. Apathy would make up for it in Round 3 Uplink, for while he didn't score any points in this surprisingly low-scoring game, his expertly gained KD of 33/27 would be the dagger in the heart of eUnited's hopes of avoiding the Loser's Bracket.
Stumbles in a tight series
July 31, 2017
Apathy falls just short, with a 66/75 KD in the first series and a 74/79 KD in the second series, in two losses to OpTic Gaming at the Stage 2 CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Apathy never managed to pull the plays that were needed to win. Importantly, Team EnVyUs seemed to know how to play against OpTic Gaming. Apathy took the game extremely slow, making sure to get a lead before trying stall their lead. The problem was that Apathy rarely broke far enough ahead due to his flat slaying, such as the first series Round 3 Uplink where they stalled the map with a single dunk. Apathy scored brief glimpses of victory, a triple kill here and there, but it never broke Team EnVyUs ahead of the pack. This was mainly because Apathy wasn't aggressive enough in cutting map control, mainly in Hardpoint rounds such as in Round 1 Hardpoint on Retaliation.
