Splyce
One great round in win
February 8, 2018
Felony struggled in the respawns, but he had a nice Search & Destroy as Splyce easily swept Epsilon to start Thursday's CWL Global Pro Leagust, Stage 1 matches.
ANALYSIS
Felony did not have the best performance in this match -- especially in the two respawn rounds -- but it did not stop Splyce from winning the round rather easily. Round 2 Search & Destroy was his best round. He, MadCat, and Tommey led the team with a three-pronged attack that Epsilon could not withstand. He only showed up on the final kill cam once (Game 4) but he was very good in the easy parts of each game. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him play poorly, earning a sub-1.00 KD ratio in both rounds. He contributed in the first round with a solid 1:17 on the objective in the easy 250-109 win, lapping up the Hardpoint time as his teammates slayed. His biggest contribution in the third round was indeed a big one. He and Vortex sprung Tommey, leading him to the last flag cap to end the round and win it.
Takes a round to gel with Splyce
February 7, 2018
Felony predictably had issues with teamwork in Splyce's 3-2 loss to eUnited on Tuesday in Week 3 of the CWL Pro League Stage 1 .
ANALYSIS
Felony was called in as a last minute replacement for Splyce's Jurd, who couldn't make this series due to visa issues. As expected, Felony didn't quite click with the rest of Splyce's members at first, as evidenced by his abysmal Round 1 Hardpoint KD at 11/27. Felony quickly put aside any complications during Round 2 Search & Destroy, for while his KD was still negative that round at 7/8, he still managed to help Splyce win six straight games. Felony again ketpt things close during Round 3 Capture the Flag, with a barely negative KD of 23/25, helping Splyce force eUnited into overtime. Felony corrected his Hardpoint mistakes in time for Round 4 Hardpoint, which saw him go positive in KD that round with 37/34. Unfortunately, Round 5 Search & Destroy demonstrated that Felony still has work to put in with Splyce, as Splyce were almost shut out completely that round, Felony himself scoring a KD of 7/6.
Nice start to win
January 13, 2018
Felony had a nice first round in the sweep win over GGEA Blue on Day 2 of the CWL New Orleans Open.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint saw compLexity actually struggle to begin the round -- GGEA Blue came out strong, and they hunkered themselves down in the Hardpoint well. Felony was one of the better members of compLexity early on, and he kept them in the game with a few big holds of the objective as well. He had one that gave them a very late lead, and they rode that to a round win. He got his team off on the right foot in Round 2 Search & Destroy, finishing up Game 1 with a kill. He ended with a solid performance, as they survived an eleven kill streak by Johnny to pull it out in eleven games. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a very dominant performance for compLexity. They had full control of the map and stifled basically every offensive effort GGEA Blue put forward. Felony was fine in the round, though he did not slay particularly well (16 kills). He did have the third flag pull for compLexity, which put the game out of reach.
Links with Ground Zero
December 30, 2017
Felony will join Ground Zero, his new teammate, Parasite, announced on behalf of the organization Friday.
ANALYSIS
It's a bit of a surprise to see Felony join arms with Ground Zero given a litany of other North American teams are in need of a slayer to round out their roster, but it's clear the former Rise Nation star highlighted Parasite's team as the most reliable of the bunch. That's perhaps in large part due to Nagafen's presence, given the two teamed together for almost a year on Rise Nation. Felony is perhaps the biggest name to move during this abbreviated portion of Rostermania, but his addition likely bumps Ground Zero firmly into the tier of North American teams expected to compete for a pool play spot at Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
May soon be released from Rise Nation
December 29, 2017
Felony is expected to be released from Rise Nation, Mike Kent of Dexerto.com reported on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The move appears to be in conjunction with the signing of Methodz, who is expected to join Rise Nation after previously playing for Next Threat. While (former) teammate Aqua is also rumored to be traded to Echo Fox for Gunless, it doesn't appear as if Felony has a home at the moment. Two major teams - Next Threat and Enigma6 - loom large as potential landing spots for the longtime Rise Nation slayer, but it remains to be seen whether either represent a fantastic fit for Felony.
Falls flat as team collapses
December 9, 2017
Felony faltered in a difficult loss to Red Reserve on Day 2 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Unable to overpower Red Reserve with his shots, Felony floundered the entire series. Felony acted largely as Rise Nation's anchor, holding spawns and objectives for his team. But despite his best efforts, he was often caught in uneven gunfights as he became the last, desperate line of defense for his team. This put Felony in the unfavorable position of neither being able to slay or hold his team together.
Early series forfeit kills his vibe
December 9, 2017
Even though Felony stayed calm after a costly mistake cost Rise Nation to forfeit Round 1 Hardpoint against Team Kaliber, they were still picked apart 3-1 on Day 2 of CWL Dallas
ANALYSIS
Felony was on a roll during Round 1 Hardpoint, as he earned an 18/13 KD right before teammate TJHaLy called in a banned scorestreak, which resulted in his team Rise Nation forfeiting that round. Felony went on to Round 2 Search & Destroy where they flattened Team Kaliber with a 6-2 victory. Despite the win, Felony had clearly lost his mojo as he faltered with a 19/25 KD during the overtime loss in Round 3 Capture the Flag. The final nail in Felony's coffin was in Round 4 Hardpoint, where he'd again fall with a negative 25/29 KD, Team Kaliber narrowly edging out that victory 250-203.
Secures pool play spot at CWL Dallas
November 28, 2017
Felony and the rest of Rise Nation have qualified for a pool play spot at CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Rise Nation nearly made a triumphant run at the most recent online North American 2K, only to be trampled down by OpTic Gaming, earning a 5th-8th place finish. The move to bring in TJHaLy certainly appears to be a good one, as Rise Nation have emerged as one of the better teams in North American to start the season. Whether they can maintain that success remains to be seen, as too often in years past Rise Nation has fought their way to a top spot, only to come crashing down during the dog days of summer.

Felony tallied a 75/91 KD in Rise Nation's tournament-ending loss against Luminosity Gaming on Sunday at Call of Duty Worlds 2017.
ANALYSIS
Felony had some strong moments in this series, but on the whole, he came up far too short to help his team get the win here. He opened with a big eight killstreak in Round 1 Hardpoint, and then picked up a nice double kill to set Aqua up in a 1-vs-2 in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but that was about it. In all the other rounds, Rise was simply unable to get into a groove against LG in the 3-1 loss.
Positive KD in win over Allegiance
August 13, 2017
Felony was stellar in the Day 4 victory over Allegiance, earning a 76/76 KD to knock their opposition out of the tournament.
ANALYSIS
A disappointing performance during the opening Hardpoint was completely erased in Round 3 Uplink, as Felony practically single-handley destroyed Allegiance. A 29/17 KD along with a critical dunk essentially put away Allegiance, as their spirit appeared to be broken in a easy Round 4 Hardpoint win.
Anchors his team
August 13, 2017
Felony undercuts FaZe Clan with a 60/76 on Day 4 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Much like Aqua, Felony took a backseat in slaying to let Faccento and Loony dominate the map. This was in Rise Nation's favor since allowed the team to play around their weak KDs, a'la eUnited in very early in the 2017 season. For example, Round 3 Uplink was turned into a sluggish crawl thanks to Felony and Aqua on defense. The two players blocked nearly every push from FaZe Clan, patiently waiting for their Payloads to clutch out the game. This tactic was also used in Search & Destroy, mainly on Round 5 Search & Destroy where Rise Nation could easily perch in positions and take picks.
Slow start in win
August 12, 2017
Felony overcame a slow start in the 3-1 win over Ghost Gaming on Day 4 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The win put Rise Nation in the Loser's Bracket Quarterfinals.
ANALYSIS
Felony had a really slow start in Round 1 Hardpoint, the only round Rise Nation lost in the match -- and it was a blowout. They trailed 23-3 right out of the gate, and never recovered from it. They ended up losing 250-150. Felony was mostly bad, going 12/20 with one minute on the objective. He had solid objective time, but the slaying left much to be desired. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a blowout too, this time in Rise Nation's favor. They won 6-1, though Felony was laid back in the round. Round 3 Uplink was a very exciting 18-10 win for Rise. The offense was flying -- Felony contributed three points to the cause, as well as a strong 27/19 KD. Round 4 Hardpoint was very close. Both sides were tied at 228, before a late push gave Rise the win. Loony was solid, going 21/17 with 1:04 on the objective, as Rise Nation solidified their spot in the top six.
Strong showing in win
August 11, 2017
Felony played very well in the 3-1 win over Str8 Rippin on Day 3 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The win kept Rise Nation in the Loser's Bracket, and eliminated Str8 Rippin.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy were two incredibly close rounds. The former was a back and forth affair with both teams trading leads late in the round. Felony went 28/27, with 1:07 on the objective, as Rise Nation won 250-237. The latter saw Rise Nation win in eleven games, though Felony did not do much but support his teammates in the round. Round 3 Uplink saw Felony get on track in a big way. They lost the round 9-8 after leading 8-5 with 1:50 left to play, but Felony had a strong individual game. He went 31/25 with five points, playing a balanced two-way game. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Rise Nation avenge their rough loss with a dominating performance, parlaying leads of 100-25 and 200-67 into an easy win. Felony was excellent again, going 26/15 with 1:10 on the objective in the match-clinching round.
Plays well in win
August 9, 2017
Felony had a good game in the sweep win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Felony played well in Round 1 Hardpoint, which was an incredibly tight round. Rise Nation won 250-241, just barely edging out Luminosity Gaming. Felony was solid, going 25/25, with 1:16 on the objective. The ratio is not particularly impressive, but he had the most kills on his team. He performed very well in Round 2 Search & Destroy, notching the final kill in Game 4, Game 6, and Game 7. He was the leader in a 6-2 win. Round 3 Uplink was an utter blowout for Rise Nation, winning 22-9. Felony racked up 31 kills in the easy round win.
Still struggles despite success
July 16, 2017
Felony hesitantly hits his stride with a 47/53 KD in a 3-0 sweep against Splyce on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Felony got out of his slump in a dramatic fashion. Round 1 Hardpoint on Breakout saw this immediate change in Felony's gameplay with him finding a great triple kill on the first hill. Immediately, the game was in Rise Nation's control. But, Felony would slow down due to some poor holds, closing Round 1 Hardpoint with a 13/22 KD. Round 3 Uplink saw another shift in Felony's gameplay, this time with his shots. In the first minute of the match, he quickly whiffed two one-point throws. However, Felony was smart enough to leave drone control to his allies after seeing his weak aim.
