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.
Tears at Splyce from their flanks
May 18, 2018
Joee took Splyce by surprise in a 3-0 sweep with a 63/60 KD on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
Joee didn't have to change too much up from his distinct style as Splyce had an ineffective defense outside of Round 3 Capture the Flag. Thanks to this, Joee was free to press fights and pull flanks without too much pressure. In Round 2 Search & Destroy on Valkyrie, for example, Joee caught Splyce off guard in several rounds by rushing behind Splyce's as they tried to hold the Ventilation Room. While this die put Joee into 1-vs-3 fights, his sheer boldness to force these fights left Splyce prone, such as his triple kill in Game 11. Joee ended Round 2 Search & Destroy with a 10/5 KD.
Plays fast and hard
May 17, 2018
Joee wrestled with Kenny in a 3-2 win with a 79/98 KD on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
Joee, as Red Reserve's frontline engagement, had to contend with Team Kaliber's daunting SMG players, fero and Kenny. While Joee wasn't able to drop many kills during respawn rounds, he was excellent during Search & Destroy rounds. This was because he and Skrapz worked like a well-oiled machine together by pushing lanes together and covering each other during teamfights. Their coordination shined in Round 4 Hardpoint on Saint Marie Du Monte, a Red Reserve staple map. Joee closed Round 4 Hardpoint with a 29/31 KD.
Only one bad round in convincing victory over Epsilon
May 16, 2018
Joee brought the kills in Red Reserve's 3-1 victory over Epsilon Esports on Tuesday of Week 1 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
Joee was a slaying machine for Red Reserve as they handily crushed Epsilon, only becoming complacent during Capture the Flag. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Joee went double positive in KD, notching up a cool 23/11 as Red Reserve ground Epsilon into dust with a lead of over 150 points. Although Joee's performance in Round 2 Search & Destroy wasn't as spectacular, he still wound up with a positive KD of 5/3 as they defeated Epsilon convincingly once again. Joee, along with the rest of Red Reserve, did get complacent in Round 3 Capture the Flag, as they underestimated a cornered Epsilon, while Joee notched his only negative KD this series with a double-negative 10/21. Red Reserve quickly recomposed themselves, however, in Round 4 Hardpoint, where they adapted to Epsilon's new resolve and won the series, as Joee closed out his performance with a solid 39/30 KD.
Acts as a nuisance
April 21, 2018
Joee easily flanked and pressured Splyce in a 3-0 win on Friday of CWL Seattle.
The new meta has only fueled Joee's basic strategy of flanking his opponents and being a general nuisance. With unlimtied sprinting in the game, Joee was able to easily and quickly navigate the map to get behind Splyce's frontline. In Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, Joee started hot thanks to the close-range map allowing him to get quick and sneaky ambushes to pinch Splyce off of hills. He was even more valuable in Round 2 Search & Destroy on USS Texas. Joee managed to get into his opponents' heads by rarely performing the same flank twice, making him a powerful but unpredictable force.
Shatters Rise Nation's flanks
April 8, 2018
Joee flanked his way to a miraculous 3-2 victory against Rise Nation on Day 2 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
Joee decimated one of the best teams in the league thanks to one simple tactic: flank Rise Nation and never stop flanking. The strategy was massively successful as he was able to make brilliant plays that not only won maps but instilled a sense of acute paranoia in his opponents. This was best seen in Game 4 of Round 5 Search & Destroy when Joee was able to get a double kill on a flank despite passing directly in front of a player. After four straight maps of flanks, Rise Nation's rear guard had become so concerned with Joee that they desperately watched for the long flank and missed Joee's obvious rotation through mid-map.
Plays a sneaky game against an aware rival
April 7, 2018
Joee tried to sneak a win in a 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
Joee did one thing and one thing only: flank. While Joee's flanks found success in the early rounds of the game, his tactics quickly fell off as Luminosity Gaming grew wise to his flanks. In Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, Joee was able to funnel Luminosity Gaming down chokes by pressuring their flanks as they came off of spawns. However, in Round 3 Capture the Flag when he tried to sneak kills or flag pulls, Luminosity Gaming began to easily spot Joee out and easily cut him down.
