Red Reserve
Hinders his team
August 18, 2018
Joee fell flat in a 3-0 loss to eUnited on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships, dropping into the Loser's Bracket in the process.
Joee just couldn't make anything work this series. His flanks flat, shots and map control all fell flat, resulting in a grueling match for not only Joee, but also for Red Reserve. In every map, Joee dropped double negative numbers. While Red Reserve is known for winning maps despite negative KDs, Joee's double-digit negative KDs made the team dysfunctional. Joee, as Red Reserve's playmaker, simply can't play this slowly at this level.
Unable to make an impact during win
August 16, 2018
Joee was inconsistent during Red Reserve's 3-1 win over Mindfreak on Day 1 of CWL Champs.
Joee started off well in this series, posting a 24/16 KD in the opening round before falling off immensely. He went negative in every ensuing round, including a rough 25/38 KD in Red's loss in Capture the Flag. Luckily for Joee, the team was able to compensate for his shortcomings and it didn't end up being a huge detriment. As the tournament moves on, though, he'll need to make sure he can step up a bit more against better competition.
Fails to pressure flanks
July 30, 2018
Joee attempted to bully Rise Nation in a 3-1 loss in the Losers Final at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
Normally a weak KD wouldn't be a problem for Joee, but his flanks, which are key to Red Reserve's spawn manipulation, were unable to have a significant impact. This was because Joee struggled to find openings in Rise Nation's defense as his opponents stuck close to one another. Because of Rise Nation's stacking, Joee's flanks found him running into 1-vs.-2 gunfights against his favor. However, Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie did see him carry the round as he was able to land late-game Scorestreaks that zoned Rise Nation from rotations into the third Ventilation Room Hardpoint.
Middle rounds best for Joee
July 29, 2018
Joee did not have great Hardpoints, but was strong elsewhere, in the 3-1 win over eUnited on Day 3 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
Joee did not stand out in either Hardpoint round. In Round 1 Hardpoint, though, he actually got off to a nice start, as he and Rated helped lead them to an early lead. They eventually ran away with it, but Joee eventually faltered ended up going 24/25 with 43 seconds on the objective. Round 4 Harpoint saw him really struggle, especially in the slaying department. He went 24/37 in the round and added just 47 seconds on the objective. He just could not find the kills in this win. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag were the best rounds for Joee. The former saw him get Red Reserve off to a fast start, getting the final kill in game one - though they won just one more game in the round as the lost 6-2. He was pretty good despite the losses, but he just did not have the support. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him provide solid, if not sparse, support, going 14/14 with one flag cap in the 3-2 win. Overall, he had some good support rounds but struggled through most of the Hardpoints.
Focused on the objective throughout win
July 28, 2018
Joee did not show his slaying chops, opting to focus on the objective in the 3-2 win over Echo Fox on Day 2 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
Joee focused on the objective in the respawn rounds of this close win. He did not have a positive KD in any of Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 3 Capture the Flag, or Round 4 Hardpoint, but he was excellent on the objective in each. He had 1:49 on the Hardpoint in Round 1, had two flag caps in Round 3, and had 1:03 on the objective in Round 4. He was a consistent force on the objective and it helped get them a win on the first Hardpoint. While they lost the other two respawn rounds, they were close in large part due to his objective play. He had one good performance and one bad performance in the Search & Destroy rounds. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him lead them alongside Rated in the eleven-game win. The duo was excellent, and it allowed Red Reserve to keep pace with Echo Fox. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him struggle, but his teammates stepped it up and won in 10 games.
Some bright moments in loss
July 27, 2018
Joee was not great overall, but he certainly had some nice moments in the 3-1 loss to Rise Nation on Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
Joee had his moments, but he was never able to consistently put it together. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 23/30, with just 47 seconds on the hill; he was inconsistent throughout the round loss. He continued his inconsistency in Round 2 Search & Destroy, a round in which they lost 6-3. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him go just 16/21, but he had a big role in their win. He had their game-winning flag cap in overtime, putting them ahead 3-2. Without his strong run to put them up 3-2, they may have been swept. Round 4 Hardpoint saw them get absolutely killed, as they lost 250-98. No one on Red Reserve showed up as they limped into the losers bracket.
Burns through enemy spawns
July 5, 2018
Joee harassed Team EnVyUs' spawns in a 3-2 win on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Joee's flanks were playmakers this series. Not only did his flanks often land kills, but they also helped to disrupt spawn control for Team EnVyUs and scouted the enemy's position. While weak in Round 3 Capture the Flag, Joee was essential in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint, especially during the latter round. In that round, Joee was able to swing map momentum by beaming a five killstreak, flipping spawns for his team and gaining map control. Joee was also key in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where his flanks devastated Team EnVyUs' positions in Game 1 and Game 3. However, he'd quickly trail off halfway through the map.
Fades after good start
July 4, 2018
Joee started rather well, but faded fast as Red Reserve was reverse swept by Team Kaliber on Day 1, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Round 1 Hardpoint was the first of two round wins for Red Reserve, and Joee played solid support in that win. Rated went off in the round win, and the rest of Red Reserve filled in the blanks behind him, and Joee was no different. He went 21/25 in the round, but added a solid 56 seconds on the objective in the win. He took a bigger role in their Round 2 Search & Destroy win, as he and Skrapz were their two best players, especially in the early going, when they rattled off five straight wins to open the round. They ended up winning in nine, and Joee's early-game performance was a key reason why. However, he struggled in the final three rounds of this match, for the most part. He had his moments, like having all three of his team's flag caps in Round 3 Capture the Flag (though his 23/36 KD highlighted where he struggled), and netting a few key kills to keep his team alive by occupying the objective in Round 4 Hardpoint (though he went just 26/38 in the round). He capped off the match by going without a kill through the first four games of Round 5 Search & Destroy, and limping to the finish line after that.
Harasses his opponents
June 27, 2018
Joee won an early-game advantage in a 3-2 win over Evil Geniuses on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Joee was a key factor in Red Reserve's early-game advantages and their Round 5 Search & Destroy win. Sticking closely to his normal strategy, Joee flanked and harassed his opponents to put as much pressure on them as possible. While this worked in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy, as Evil Geniuses' shots fell limp, he struggled to make much impact in Round 3 Capture the Flag. There, Joee was unable to even push out of his base due to Evil Geniuses' cornering his team's spawns, leaving Red Reserve with little map control. In Round 5 Search & Destroy Joee rebounded to cause chaos in Evil Geniuses' defense as he switched between slow, methodical pushes and fast flanks.
Attempts to manipulate enemy spawns
June 18, 2018
Joee attempted to bully Rise Nation in a double Grand Finals loss to Rise Nation at CWL Anaheim, winning the first series 3-1 and losing the second 3-1.
Joee's knack for being a constant nuisance for Rise Nation was the key in winning the first series. Red Reserve attempted to take control of spawns, mimicking what made the European region successful during the competitive Black Ops 3 season, rather than attempting to outgun the likes of Rise Nation. Joee made Red Reserve's spawn control tactics possible as he could constantly hit his opponents' flanks and throw their spawns into disarray. However, as Rise Nation began to regroup in the second series, Joee's lack of strong and consistent gunplay doomed his team. For example, Joee failed to win a key 1-vs-1 in the second Round 4 Hardpoint to secure a hill rotation that would have won the map.
Pushes spawns and lanes
June 18, 2018
Joee brought a strong late-game in a 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming in the Losers Final at CWL Anaheim, advancing Red Reserve to the Grand Finals for a rematch against Rise Nation.
Joee was never the powerhouse for Red Reserve, but when he's able to step up, he takes full control of the game. Playing a vital role for Red Reserve Joee used his SMG and movement abilities to spawn-block Luminosity Gaming. This meant that Joee would constantly run around the map and harass flanks to manipulate flanks. While he wouldn't land massive kills, it made spawns unpredictable for his opponents. It wasn't until Round 4 Hardpoint that Joee was able to manipulate spawns and slay the enemy, resulting in a clean Round 4 Hardpoint and series win.
Ups and downs in win
June 17, 2018
Joee had his good and bad moments in the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, securing them a spot in the Winner's Bracket Final.
Joee faced his fair share of problems in this match. Round 1 Hardpoint was slow for Joee, as he never really got it together. His 28 kills were certainly nothing to scoff at, but he died 33 times - Luminosity slayed very well, and Joee had a hard time stringing kills together against them. They lost the round by two points, 250-248. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a start of a three-round win streak for Red Reserve, and Joee was a solid part of that. He was a support player in the round, but he certainly helped keep Luminosity at bay in the 6-2 win. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Joee get out to an awful start, and he never really found his footing, going 13/18 in the round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Joee really struggle early on, but he had a strong late-game performance that Red Reserve surge past Luminosity and into the Winner's Bracket Final.
Some big moments in win
June 16, 2018
Joee was defined by the big moments in the Hardpoint rounds of the 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
Joee had poor stat lines in each round, but he still did good things to help get Red Reserve the win - specifically in the two Hardpoint rounds. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go just 21/32 with 47 seconds on the objective, but he had a huge late-game performance to win the round for them. He had a triple-kill to take the hill over and get them to the 250 mark. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him struggle to make much of an impact (though he did have the team's first flag cap), but he did have a big part of the Round 4 Hardpoint win. Just like in the previous round, he had an unexciting KD (22/36), but he did have a strong Hardpoint time (1:42). He came up large late in the round yet again, as Zer0 kept them afloat in the early portion of the round.
Peppers shots at scattered opponent
May 24, 2018
Joee pressured FaZe Clan with close-range combat in a 3-1 win on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
Joee, the infamous flanker of Europe, had to contest with ZooMa, the infamous flanker of America. The two SMG players didn't engage in any major battles as Joee's, and Red Reserve's, gameplan was to avoid as many of ZooMa's flanks as possible. This was accomplished with Joee rarely flanking. Instead he stuck close with his team to force teamfights and to gain early control of the objective. This was best seen in Round 4 Hardpoint as Joee made strikingly early rotations to hills to gain an early lead.
Rolls Team EnVyUs
May 24, 2018
Joee pushed out lanes in a 3-1 win over Team EnVyUs with a 68/68KD on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
Oddly, Joee didn't have to adjust much in the face of Team EnVyUs, a team notorious for their aggression and spawn bullying. Instead, Joee largely had the advantage in most cases. In Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint, Joee was instrumental in building massive, early leads by simply flanking enemy teams on the first hill. From there, he'd push out into lanes to force poor rotations onto Team EnVyUs. While this worked early on, Joee's mid game suffered as Team EnVyUs learned to stabilize spawns.
