Left off Vitality
May 15, 2018
Moose will no longer compete under the Vitality banner.
ANALYSIS
Moose joined the organization prior to the team's relegation match, but the new addition didn't wind up changing much as the European roster failed to win a game. Vitality will enter the CWL National Circuit, but it's unclear where Moose might play for during the duration of the competitive season.
Aligns with Vitality
April 18, 2018
Moose will join Vitality ahead of their Stage 1 relegation match against Nordic on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Vitality released Zayrox and evidently opted to bench RiskiN, opening the door for the organization to acquire not just Moose but also MarkyB. As a result, the roster figures to do well enough to qualify for Stage 2 - a nearly unimaginable situation given Vitality had won just one series during the entirety of Stage 1.
Released from UNILAD
April 6, 2018
ANALYSIS
It's a bit of a surprising decision, given Moose, when playing at his best, is one of the better slayers in the European region. However, its the qualifier that is the problem, as Moose has struggled to be a consistent force alongside the usually dynamic wuskin and Skrapz. It'll be interesting to see who UNILAD does decide to pick up, as they were only one win away from qualifying for the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 Playoffs, but Moose figures to be on a roster worthy of qualifying for CoD Champs at some point before the season ends.
Some huge moments in win
March 31, 2018
Moose came up big early and late in the 3-2 win over Enigma6 on Day 2 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
Moose got off to a hot start, finishing Round 1 Hardpoint with a joint-high 35 kills, and a game-high 1:37 on the objective. His fingerprints were all over the win, one that was a hard fought one. Enigma6 led for large portions of the early section of the round and only succumbed to UNILAD's strong slaying late in the round. Moose's two-way performance was a huge boon to their offense. The middle of the match proved to be a bit of a slog for Moose. He struggled in Round 2 Search & Destroy, a round that Enigma6 easily won 6-2. He only had one kill through the first seven games, all but being a non-factor in the round. He had a good first half in Round 3 Capture the Flag but limped to a 20/22 KD as Enigma6 took control of the game in the second half. His middling performance continued into an impressive Round 4 Hardpoint win. He went 23/26 with over a minute on the hill, as they forced a Round 5 Search & Destroy. He was average, and he helped fill in when his teammates needed him to. He finished extremely strong, however, putting together a double-digit kill performance in Round 5 Search & Destroy, as they came back from down 5-1 to win in eleven games. He ended up with 13 kills, three of which came in that decisive eleventh game, clutching up at the biggest part of the match.
Mostly strong in loss
March 21, 2018
Moose had a very nice game, but UNILAD still fell to FaZe Clan 3-1 on Day 1 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Moose was solid in basically every round of this loss, outside of Round 2 Search & Destroy of course, in which UNILAD lost 6-1, and Moose really struggled to stop FaZe from doing anything. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Moose run out to a 14/4 beginning, and keep it up for a 32/30 finish. He slayed well, but ZooMa and Attach made the difference too much to make up. Round 3 Capture the Flag, their only round win, looks like a middling round on paper for Moose. He finished 15/18, but that does not tell the whole story. He really struggled in the first half, finishing 5/10, but he did some good towards the end of the round. He had a kill that helped force extra time, and helped UNILAD tie the game at one apiece. He then had a hot start to the second half, netting a six-kill streak that helped give them control of the round. He provided much needed backup being Skrapz in Round 4 Hardpoint, as the duo helped fight back from down 176-100 to get all the way to 226 points before losing. If they had some support behind them, they could have forced a fifth round.
Shreds through his oppenents
March 15, 2018
Moose dominated Team EnVyUs with an SMG in a 3-1 win on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Moose may have had trouble yesterday, but he quickly fixed his flaws and stepped up to the plate for his team. Granted, he struggled at first. Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks saw Moose drop a disappointing 26/34 KD as Team EnVyUs' SMG game was on point. However, when Moose was needed, he stepped up, such as on the first Main Street point where he held a flank from EnVyUs. Moose stepped up in Round 4 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, where his mid-game streaks flipped the spawns for his team, thanks to a quad kill on the second Operations Bunker.
Falters with SMGs
March 15, 2018
Moose delivered an uneven and disappointing performance in a 3-2 win over Splyce on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Moose, along with Seany, had an uneven series as the two AR players were forced to flex onto SMGs. This was because of a map pool that saw Vallkyrie, London Docks, and USS Texas, maps that have a heavy SMG focus. Because of this, Moose only found a respectable KD by Round 4 Hardpoint on London Docks and Round 5 Search & Destroy on USS Texas. In particular, Moose had a great round in Round 5, as Moose could easily switch between ARs and SMGs as the situation demanded and allowed him to score a five-kill streak that earned him an essential Glide Bomb in Game 10.
UNILAD's anchor on the hardpoints
February 16, 2018
Moose held the hardpoints for UNILAD like a lead weight, but he was weak elsewhere, as UNILAD were defeated 3-2 by Evil Geniuses on Day 5 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Moose's specialty this series was the Hardpoint rounds, but he needs to work on his skills elsewhere if he wants to help his team clutch victories in the future. He started off well enough in Round 1 Hardpoint, where he claimed the best KD of his team at 27/17, as well as 1:10 of hardpoint control time. However, his weakness in Search & Destroy was aptly demonstrated in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he went negative in KD with 4/7 despite scoring a bomb plant. Moose did get a positive KD in Round 3 Capture the Flag at 24/20, but earned no flag captures. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Moose earn the most hardpoint control time of his team at 1:41, despite his KD going negative with 22/24. Moose's run against Evil Geniuses ended with a whimper in Round 5 Search & Destroy, where his barely negative KD of 6/7 ultimately proved him helpless to prevent a Game 11 victory by Evil Geniuses.
Locks and pins down eUnited
February 15, 2018
Moose protected his teammates in a 3-2 win over eUnited on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
With both Skrapz and wuskin beaming, Moose was left in charge of objective control, a daunting task when going up against the likes of eUnited. Moose, thankfully, was able to clutch up against eUnited. Relying on his long-range assault rifle play, Moose was able to beat back Arcitys and Clayster in a surprising set of games. This was most notable in Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks. Moose sat back from the action to pin down eUnited from afar, allowing his team to easily secure hill rotations.
Tries to cut through EnVyUs' flanks
February 8, 2018
Moose flanked in an attempt to win 1-3 against Team EnVyUs on Day 3 of the CWL Pro League Stage 1, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Moose seemed to have only one trick up his sleeve: flanking. While this seems lackluster on paper, this required significant coordination on Unilad's part. Their coordination was best seen in Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag. In Round 2, Moose was able to skillfully rotate around Team EnVyUs. As soon as a fight broke out, he would rotate to his teammates taking fire, instead of the usual tactic of guarding a site until a bomb is planted. This allowed Moose to take Game 11 to give his team their one map win.
Free Agent
Appears set to join wuskin and Skrapz
November 4, 2017
Moose was listed on GameBattles alongside Seany, wuskin, and Skrapz.
ANALYSIS
While the GameBattles roster doesn't completely confirm Moose will be joining the twin duo of Skrapz and wuskin, it certainly appears likely given few upper echelon rosters remain in Europe. The former Millenium slayer hasn't technically been a free agent for long, given his former organization only announced the change early last week.
Free Agent
Not listed on Millenium
November 1, 2017
Moose was not listed on Millenium's updated roster announcement Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
With Millenium bringing in Urban and Gunshy, the team was forced to jettison one of its former members, with Moose clearly becoming the odd man out. With only a few European rosters needing a player, it seems likely Moose will wind up on a team led by twin duo Skrapz/wuskin or an already established organization willing to shell out the big bucks for an elite talent. Given regional competitors Red Reserve and Splyce made major changes to their rosters over the offseason, where Moose winds up could make a major difference as to who may compete with the two organizations in Europe.
Gives a strong defense but a weak offense
August 10, 2017
Moose failed to play to his strengths in a loss to Splyce in Group G on Day 2 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Moose was quickly knocked out by Splyce this series, cutting Millenium's lofty of playoffs short. While Splyce are a difficult opponent to face, Moose didn't pull his weight as needed. The key moment was in Round 3 Uplink on Throwback. Going into the second half, both sides were tied up 2-2. Millenium quickly lost their lead by one point soon after the half. And Moose, Millenium's Active Camo player, was unable to get his Payload the whole round. This dealt a massive blow to Millenium as Moose's shortcomings left his team without the tools to win or tie up the round. However, to end on a positive note, Moose was key in countering MadCat in Round 1 Hardpoint by defending team's flanks.
Respawn leader in loss
June 25, 2017
Moose did okay in respawns, but Millenium were still swept by Red Reserve and eliminated from CWL Sheffield on Championship Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Moose went off in the middle of Round 1 Hardpoint, notching a seven killstreak to get them within 100 points. Unfortunately for them, due to a 100-39 early deficit that kept growing, Red Reserve was already near 250 at that point. His comeback was for naught, but he had a solid game -- 27/22 KD, and 50 seconds on the hill. Peatie and MarkyB forced a Game 11 in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but Moose was quiet, as they mounted the comeback and lost the decisive game. Moose was solid again in Round 3 Uplink, getting them close in a second half that saw them down 6-0. Despite his dunk, and 24/24 KD, it was not enough of a comeback, as they fell in the round and were eliminated.
Dominates in win
June 24, 2017
Moose was a dominant player in the sweep of District Red on Saturday at CWL Sheffield.
ANALYSIS
Moose was locked in from the beginning of Round 1 Hardpoint. With 3:20 left in the match, he had a KD ratio of 24/8. He parlayed that into a 38/17 KD ratio for the round. He was also a force on the objective, notching 1:32 on the hill. He was simply sensational. He had the final kill in Game 7 in an easy Round 2 Search & Destroy win. Moose picked up his strong respawn play in Round 3 Uplink, as he went 26/21 with six out of his team's seven points. It was truly an incredible performance.
