Decimates in Round 1 Hardpoint
May 18, 2018
Zer0 popped off in the early game with a 51/52 KD in a 3-0 sweep of Splyce on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 showed off a bit against his old teammates in Splyce by firing them in Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie. Running between an AR and a SMG, Zer0 was able to continually catches Splyce off guard by pre-firing corners and challenging most fights. This kind of aggression saw value early on as Zer0 was able to drop a 12/6 KD by the first set of rotations in Round 1 Hardpoint. While Splyce was able to make a small comeback later on, Zer0's massive early lead was too much for Splyce to overcome. His aggression also payed off in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he scored key kills by continually laying down suppressing fire in lanes.
Pressures from afar
May 17, 2018
Zer0 locked down Team Kaliber from afar in a 3-2 win with a 71/87 KD on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
While no longer the shining slaying star from Infinite Warfare, Zer0 can still make himself an imposing presence. This wasn't reflected his in KD, rather it was how he played key maps like London Docks, Saint Maire Du Mont and USS Texas. The long sightlines on all those maps allows Zer0 to scout out the aggressive Team Kaliber before they could engage. Unfortunately, this also meant he was the first to be attacked, leading to his weak KD in most rounds. He ended the series in Round 5 Search & Destroy with a 6/5 KD.
The least effective player of Red Reserve against Epsilon
May 16, 2018
Not everyone on a top-tier team can be stellar all the time, and it was Zer0's turn to fall behind during Red Reserve's 3-1 victory over Epsilon on Tuesday of Week 1 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Tuesday was clearly not Zer0's day to shine on Red Reserve. Round 1 Hardpoint, where the rest of Red Reserve crushed Epsilon, saw Zer0 struggling to keep up with the rest of his team, going negative in KD with 10/15. Zer0 managed to pick things back up afterward in Round 2 Search & Destroy, for while he didn't get the best KD of Red Reserve, he still chalked up a positive KD at 6/4. Ironically, while the rest of Red Reserve became complacent in Round 3 Capture the Flag, Zer0 was the only member of Red Reserve to gain a positive KD that round with 19/18, as Epsilon stole the round from Red Reserve. Zer0 closed out the series against Epsilon in Round 4 Hardpoint with a better KD than Round 1, scoring a positive 26/25 as Red Reserve claimed their first series victory in Stage 2.
Dominates the map with laser precision
April 21, 2018
Zer0 sniped down Splyce's hope of a smooth weekend in a 3-0 win on Friday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 stuck to what has worked in the past and simply played long-range battles against his European rivals, Splyce. This was especially important as Splyce played double ARs against Red Reserve, a traditionally SMG-focused team. However, due to the map pool, Zer0 was occasionally forced to run SMGs, though this proved surprisingly effective against the limp defenses of Splcye. On Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, his flexibility helped snowball an early lead as he could both hold hills and push lanes. His best map was easily Round 2 Search & Destroy on USS Texas where the map's long and open lanes allowed him to run a sniper. Of course, the laser-like aim of Zer0 pinned down his opponents in a matter of seconds, even against Jurd.
Holds his team together with flex role
April 8, 2018
Zer0 devastated Rise Nation with his flex skill in a 3-2 win on Day 2 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Zer0's flex skills were vital in Red Reserve's victory as his team played an off-meta game. Instead of playing teamfights, an area Rise Nation excels in, Red Reserve played for flanks and picks, and it was up to Zer0 to hold spawns. Joee's and Joshh's flanks accelerated the pace of the game, with snap-decisions often meaning map wins. Zer0's flexibility allowed him to bounce from fast SMGs to slow ARs, helping him to secure spawns on a dime, such as in Round 4 Hardpoint on Ardennes Forest where he secured the spawns in Ruins during the last East Road hill. That spawn positioning became vital as it allowed Red Reserve to constantly flood the hill.
Nearly stops enemy rally
April 7, 2018
Zer0 tried to save his teammates in a 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Even with Zer0 dropping a massive performance, Red Reserve's weak defense cursed him with a loss. Round 1 Hardpoint started very strong for Zer0 as he scored two separate six killstreaks that gave him consistent Scorestreaks to snowball an early lead. But by Round 5 Search & Destroy on USS Texas, Red Reserve lost their momentum as Luminosity Gaming began their reverse-sweep. Zer0 was the only player who was able to pressure Luminosity on that map. Zer0 played every game in that round with a sniper which allowed him to easily pin down his opponents, but his teammates were awkwardly unable to score kills on their cornered rivals.
Struggles in loss to Enigma6
April 2, 2018
Zer0 secured an 81/82 KD on Sunday during the 3-1 lower bracket loss to Enigma6 at CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 was one of just two Red Reserve players to post a positive KD in a Round 1 Hardpoint loss, but it was during Round 2 Search and Destroy that Zer0 shined, getting multiple first bloods in a commanding 6-0 smothering of Enigma6. The slayer was relegated to an afterthought in Round 3 Capture the Flag, with a four killstreak near Statue during the final moments in the first half acting as his "lone" highlight - one that stopped Enigma6 from scoring its fifth flag capture of the first five minutes. Round 4 Hardpoint didn't wind up being much better, as a five-kill streak led to a surprisingly minuscule round-ending 30/32 KD.
Whiffs some significant plays
March 30, 2018
Zer0's minor mistakes cost small victories in a 3-0 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Friday of CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 gave a decent performance but small moments of hesitation cost him the game. The key example of this was in Game 9 of Round 2 Search & Destroy. Luminosity Gaming's Slacked was one shot from death, and Zer0 was the last Red Reserve player alive. Slacked was able to win the fight as Zer0 pressed Slacked slowly, allowing Slacked to regenerate his health and win the fight by the time Zer0 committed to the engagement. These kind of minor hesitations gave the decisive Luminosity Gaming the edge they needed.
Mostly par in loss
March 30, 2018
Zer0 struggled for large swaths of the 3-1 loss to Splyce on Day 1 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 had a poor first two rounds, even in their impressive comeback win in Round 2 Search & Destroy, coming from down 4-1 to win 6-4. His biggest moment came in Round 3 Capture the Flag, although they lost the round in overtime, Zer0 put together a strong showing in the round. He went 17/13, and was their sole consistent contributor. Without him, they would have had a hard time keeping Splyce close. He was okay in Round 4 Hardpoint, finishing the round 26/27. It's more impressive when you factor in their 250-59 loss. The fact that he was even remotely competitive when Splyce were as on top of their game as they were is impressive. Overall, Zer0 finished rather strong, but will want to stay more consistent going forward.
Fazes out in a furious grand finals
March 11, 2018
Zer0 got trampled by Rise Nation in a 3-1 stomp in the CWL Atlanta grand finals.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 may be Red Reserve's flex player, but nothing he tried led to much of anything. Zer0 started slowly in Round 1 Harpdoint on Valkyrie where Rise Nation easily handled map control due to Zer0's slow start. While he began to build up steam in Round 2 Search & Destroy by acting as bait, his slaying was still lackluster. It would take to the end of Round 4 Hardpoint before he had any presence again. Even then, it was a little too late as Rise Nation had already built a sizable lead.
Stands out as an SMG player
March 11, 2018
Zer0 stuck to a winning strategy in a 3-0 stomp of Luminosity Gaming in the losers' finals at CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 came into this tournament known as an AR player, but he came out of this series proving his role as a flex SMG player. The triple-SMG threat of Joee, Joshh, and Zer0 tore their opponents' defenses as all three attacked from different angles, while also still being able to support each other. For example, in Game 6 of Round 2 Search & Destroy on Saint Marie Du Mont, Zero took to the high ground to constantly watch over main street where he was able to spot out his enemies. He and Rated then coordinated a trap where Zer0 poked at Luminosity with SMG, only to retreat straight into Rated's aim.
Chokes in Round 5
March 9, 2018
Zer0 nearly clutched the series in a 3-2 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Because of an aggressive close-range series from Team EnVyUS, Zer0 struggled to make his presence felt. This was especially true as Joee and Joshh failed to hold the frontline to guard Zer0. However, he turned this around in Round 5 Search & Destroy when he secured Scorestreaks in Game 2. Zer0 would use his Scorestreaks in Game 4, but due to his team's positioning, just sitting in the middle of a lane, they were easily cleaned out. Zer0 could do very little as team's ranks were continually shattered.
Nearly undercuts Team Kaliber
March 1, 2018
Zer0 made some interesting, but successful, plays in a 3-0 loss to Team Kaliber on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 got slammed by an aggressive Team Kaliber, though he was able to use this to his advantage in some cases. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Zer0 was able to turn around hills by simply playing for spawns as Team Kaliber tried soak points by trickling onto the hill. Because of this, Zer0 could take control of nearby spawns while Kaliber were forced into longer spawns. In a similar case, in Round 3 Capture the Flag Zer0 was able to tie up the game to force Overtime by sneaking behind a desperate Team Kaliber trying to close out the game.
Gets pinned down
March 1, 2018
Zer0 got torn apart in a bloody 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 failed to the adapt to the new meta, despite being one of the best AR players in Europe. OpTic Gaming would rush Red Reserve's defenses, preventing Zer0 from finding the space needed to consistently land his shots. In Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks, Zer0 would make his presence felt by being the only team member with a positive KD by simply holding back on hills. However, he would also make some strange decisions in the series. In Round 2 Search & Destroy on Saint Marie Du Mont, Zer0 would consistently give up high ground to OpTic Gaming without even a fight after Game 4, throwing away key positioning for no reason.
CTF is his only good round in reverse sweep victory
February 28, 2018
Zer0's performance was all over the place as Red Reserve narrowly clutch a 3-2 reverse sweep series victory over Vitality on Tuesday in the CWL Pro League Division A.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 was barely able to keep up with the pace of the game in Round 1 Hardpoint, as he went barely negative in KD with 26/27, unable to help his teammate Joee as Vitality narrowly won that round. Zer0's performance would absolutely tank in Round 2 Search & Destroy with a measly 2/8 KD in a surprising show of force by Vitality. Zer0 finally showed signs of life in Round 3 Capture the Flag, even going so far as becoming the star player for his team that round, as he scored two of Red Reserve's three flag captures and even had the best KD of his team at 21/12. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Zer0 tapering off in performance again, though, with a KD of 20/26. Zer0 was not at his best in Round 5 Search & Destroy, only notching a KD of 7/8, but he got the game-winning snipe against Zayrox to clutch a dramatic round win, earning Red Reserve the reverse sweep victory and clinching their spot in the playoffs.
