Red Reserve
Sets up his team for success
July 5, 2018
Rated opened up the map for his team in a 3-2 win over Team EnVyUs on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Despite choosing a favorable map pool, Rated had to come out swinging in the late game in order to secure the win. Red Reserve's weak slaying lost them Round 3 Capture the Flag, currently the team's worst game mode, as well as Round 2 Search & Destroy. Thankfully, Rated was there to push his team to a Round 5 Search & Destroy by taking over Round 4 Hardpoint. His smooth shots landed him his full suite of Scorestteaks during the second set of rotations, allowing for a comeback just off of his slaying. Rated's Scorestreaks would also be vital in the third set of rotations to scout Team EnVyUs and clutch a tight round.
Plays well despite bad loss
July 4, 2018
Rated had four good rounds out of five, but Red Reserve were reverse swept by Team Kaliber on Day 1, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Rated did a lot of good in this match, despite the loss. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him run roughshod over the map, going 28/15 with a whopping 2:53 on the objective. He was a monster on the Hardpoint, and Team Kaliber simply had no answer for him. His teammates gave him quality support, and that proved to be way too much for Team Kaliber to handle. He actually struggled in Round 2 Search & Destroy, not doing much until the final game. He had a wonderful ninja defuse while an Artillery Barrage was raining down on him. He really surprised Team Kaliber and stole the game from underneath them. He was okay in Round 3 Capture the Flag, going 29/30, but their slaying woes as a team were abundant. They were outslayed from start to finish, and it hurt their offense, especially in overtime. They were stifled, and they lost in overtime as a result of the slaying differential. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him play excellently, as he and Zer0 led them to a 200-160 lead, and what looked like a win. Team Kaliber came storming back to take a lead, and hold out for a win. Rated went 39/28 with 1:17 on the Hardpoint in the loss. He played well again in Round 5 Search & Destroy, but his Red Reserve as a whole was outplayed by Team Kaliber, as they lost 6-2.
Keeps team calm in a tense game
June 27, 2018
Rated rebounded in a 3-2 win over Evil Geniuses on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
The series got very tense as it went all the way to a Game 11, Round 5 Search & Destroy, but Rated kept his cool and kept his team organized to secure the win. The first two rounds went quickly as all of Red Reserve played at the top of their game. However, Rated was tested in Round 3 Capture the Flag on Ardennes Forest as Evil Geniuses were able to steal the win thanks to their early game teamfights. When it came down to a Round 5 Search & Destroy, Rated had his team play patiently, using frag grenades and smoke grenades to scout and disorient a disorganized Evil Geniuses.
Fails to maintain momentum in back-to-back games
June 18, 2018
Rated lost steam in a rough double Grand Finals loss to Rise Nation at CWL Anaheim, winning the first series 3-1 and losing the second 3-1.
ANALYSIS
Rated had a clear idea on how to take on Rise Nation after his dramatic loss to them in the Winners Final. The two main problems in Rated's strategy was his weakness in Search & Destroy and implementing his spawn control strategy across an arduous eight maps in a back-to-back series. The first series saw Rated largely successful in his ability to control map spawns thanks to his ability to poke holes in Rise Nation's defense as his teammates pushed lanes. In the second series, however, Rated began to slow down heavily, struggling to keep up with his teammates and maintain spawn control, leading to a devastating loss in the second Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint.
Devises solid gamplan
June 18, 2018
Rated led his team to victory in a 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming in the Losers Final of CWL Anaheim, sending the team for a rematch against Rise Nation at the Grand Finals.
ANALYSIS
Rated's gameplan of spawn control has been working flawlessly all weekend. Instead of attempting to outslay his opponents, Rated has been using map and spawn control to win maps to circumvent the team's slow shots. This tactic is accomplished by Rated holding back to control spawns while Skrapz and Joee push lanes. In this series, however, Rated showed off his AR skills late into the game in Round 4 Hardpoint on Ardennes Forest. Landing a 12/6 KD by the first Bunker Hardpoint, Luminosity Gaming had no answer to Rated's strong shots and clever plans.
Consistent force in nice win
June 17, 2018
Rated was a consistent performer in the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, securing Red Reserve a spot in the Winner's Bracket Final.
ANALYSIS
Red Reserve's only loss came in Round 1 Hardpoint, but Rated had a good performance in that round. They lost the round in heartbreaking fashion, falling 250-248, and Rated's performance was a big reason why they got to 248 in the first place. He was solid throughout the back and forth round, going 31/25 with 1:09 on the objective. He led his team in kills, providing a solid base throughout the round. Rated had a really good late-game performance, really turning it on in the final few games. His biggest contribution came in game seven, where he netted three kills to get them within one game of a win - a win they would eventually get. Rated had a slow first half to Round 3 Capture the Flag, but he picked it up in the second half of the round to put together a great performance overall. Red Reserve followed a similar path - the first half was slow, but they had a great second half, dominating the kill feed and giving them map control. Rated had a poor stat line in Round 4 Hardpoint (26/35) but he turned it on in the latter stages of the round. He, Skrapz and Zer0 all had huge kills that got them to the 250 mark.
Some good, some bad, in win
June 16, 2018
Rated saw good times and bad in the 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Rated had his ups and his downs in the win, and Round 1 Hardpoint was certainly an up. The round itself was very close, with both teams trading leads until the very end, when Red Reserve was finally able to claim a win. Rated had plenty of good moments in the win, as his 29 kills paced him second on the team (third in the lobby), and his 54 seconds of Hardpoint time was important, especially in a game mode where every second counts. Round 2 Search & Destroy was another close Red Reserve win, as they pulled it out in 11 games. He had the final kill in that game eleven to win it, and was a solid support player in the rest of the round. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him struggle to a 15/21 KD as FaZe Clan stayed alive, but he turned it around in Round 4 Hardpoint. He went 26/27 in the round, but he had some big moments late in the round to help keep their lead intact. He added 1:37 on the objective to his performance.
Plays around a disorganzed FaZe Clan
May 24, 2018
Rated blasted FaZe Clan with strong shots in a 3-1 win on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Continuing a remarkable run this week, Rated was able to take a win over FaZe Clan thanks to his impressive stats. Rated not only played a strong game, but a smart one as well. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Rated nearly won the map for his team as he scored an impressive KD, including an eight killstreak. The killstreak landed Rated a full suite of Scorestreaks but he was unable to effectively use them on the map. However, going into subsequent rounds Rated began to play a more defensive game by sticking close to his teammates and negating ZooMa's flanks.
Nearly breaks records
May 24, 2018
Rated carried Red Reserve in a 3-1 win over Team EnVyUs with a 87/64 KD on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Without Rated, Red Reserve absolutely wouldn't have won this series. The star player of Europe nearly broke records as he tore through a limp Team EnVyUs, largely popping off in a Round 2 Search & Destroy and in Round 4 Hardpoint. Both of these rounds were on Red Reserve favorites, London Docks and Sainte Marie Du Mont respectively, which only added to Rated's sheer domination. He just didn't miss in Round 2 Search & Destroy as he beamed a 19/6 KD, nearly breaking the twenty kill milestone that only three other players have scored. Rated's success was fortunate too as he team played an uneven game.
Plays a varied game
May 18, 2018
Rated bashed Splyce in a 3-0 sweep with a 52/44 KD on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Rated may have lost Joshh to Splyce, but he was still more than prepared to take on his European rival. Leading the team through a variety of plays, Rated was able to slowly tear apart Splyce. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, for example, Rated played a fast and aggressive game that was intended to take Splyce by surprise. By pre-firing corners and challenging every fight, Rated was able to score a key double kill in Game 3. Then in Round 3 Capture the Flag, Rated switched his tactics and played an extraordinarily defensive game, waiting for picks before even daring to push out form his base.
Tricks Team Kaliber
May 17, 2018
Rated outsmarted Team Kaliber in a 3-2 win with a 69/78 KD on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Rated may not be a strong slayer, but he makes up for by being smart. Against the aggressive Team Kaliber, Rated's veteran skills turned out be extraordinarily helpful. Leading the team to play defensively, Red Reserve was able to run circles around their opponents in Search & Destroy. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, this meant hitting Bomb-A on attack rounds and defending Bomb-B on defense rounds as Team Kaliber were insistent on Bomb-B on nearly every round. In Round 5 Search & Destroy, Rated was able to heat up his slaying, stringing together five games with a 7/5 KD.
Destroys Epsilon in Search & Destroy
May 16, 2018
Rated put Epsilon in their place during Round 2 Search & Destroy to push Red Reserve to a 3-1 victory over Epsilon Esports on Tuesday of Week 1 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Rated played the objective in Round 1 Hardpoint, as he singlehandedly claimed the hardpoints right from under Epsilon's noses for a solid 2:37 of hardpoint control time and a respectable KD of 17/12. However, Rated's best round undoubtedly was Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he chalked up the most kills of Red Reserve on route to a KD of 9/6. Rated did get complacent against Epsilon in Round 3 Capture the Flag, as Red Reserve collectively let their guards down, allowing Epsilon to take that round as Rated went negative in KD with 14/20. Red Reserve put their guard back up though against a renewed Epsilon in Round 4 Hardpoint, where Red Reserve finally ended the series with a 3-1 victory as Rated earned another positive KD of 32/26.
Plays flexible against ribals
April 21, 2018
Rated adjusted easily to the new meta in a 3-0 win over Splyce on Friday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Despite a sizeable meta shift, Rated has changed extraordinarily little from his Stage 1 form. Continuing to be the main AR presence, Rated played his signature close-range AR and triple-player stack to overwhelm Splyce alongside Zer0 and Joshh. This worked flawlessly against the weak SMGs of Splyce, even allowing Rated and Zer0 to both play ARs on Valkyrie, USS Texas and even Flak Tower. The only new twist Rated had to introduce was the occasional flex onto the SMG role in Round 3 Capture the Flag on Flak Tower.
Outsmarts Rise Nation
April 8, 2018
Rated barely slayed but was still able to lead his team to a 3-2 win over Rise Nation on Day 2 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Rated had a miserable game in terms of scoring kills, but what won Red Reserve the series were smart plays planned by him. Instead of taking Rise Nation in head-to-head fights, Rated had Joee and Joshh constantly flank their opponents. Meanwhile, Rated often acted as bait for his team, dragging Rise Nation out of hiding so Joee and Joshh could get easy flanks. This worked exceedingly well in Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy, where the promise of killing Rated was often too tempting for Rise Nation to pass up.
Solid slaying force
April 7, 2018
Rated gave consistent slaying in a 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Red Reserve seems to be cursed to lose every Round 5 Search & Destroy. From Round 1 Hardpoint to Round 3 Capture the Flag, Rated was excellent at laying down reliable firepower. His ability to play long-range with an AR is what secured Red Reserve's win in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as he could score kills as Joee and Joshh engaged. But as the series dragged on, Rated's frontline faltered. This culminated in Round 5 Search & Destroy where Rated struggled to pick off Luminosity because Joee and Joshh kept dropping.
