Solid slayer in first two rounds
August 18, 2018
Zed fought hard in the first two rounds but struggled in the last round of the 3-0 loss to eUnited that relegated them to the loser's bracket on Day 4 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
Zed had two solid rounds but fell off in the final round of this loss. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him slay excellently from the get-go, pacing them to a 139-69 lead, and continuing to slay well as that lead burned down around him and they lost the round. He notched a lobby leading 43 kills, and a solid 1:13 on the objective, playing well despite the collapse. He continued to slay well into Round 2 Search & Destroy, but similar to the end of the previous round, had little support around him. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his worst round by far, as he managed just 11 kills in the 4-0 loss. He simply ran out of gas, as UNILAD got swept.
Runs with hot start
August 16, 2018
Zed started off hot and kept with it throughout the sweep win over Team EnVyUs on Day 2 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
Zed got off to a hot start in this win, and ran with it from there. They won the round 250-81, dominating the map from start to finish. Zed racked up a whopping 1:47 on the objective, leading the lobby, and pitched in a solid 25 kills as well. He was the most complete player on his team, as well as their most balanced performer in the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy was the only close round of the match. It went eleven rounds, and UNILAD needed to win the final two to win the round. Zed was not a superstar in the round, but he was a solid support player in the win. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Zed perform closer to his first round performance, as he notched 19 kills in the 3-0 shutout win. Every single player on UNILAD had 19 kills, putting together an incredibly balanced showing in the win.
Faded a little in win
July 28, 2018
Zed started strong but faded a little at the end of the sweep win over OpTic Gaming on Day 2 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Zed's best rounds were the first two rounds of this sweep win. He went off in Round 1 Hardpoint, netting a 31/22 KD and 1:08 on the objective. He, and the rest of his team, simply outslayed OpTic Gaming, and it made the round a rather easy one. Round 2 Search & Destroy was closer, as they won in ten games. Zed was good throughout it, but he really turned up late in the round, winning Games 8 and 9 to put them within one game of a win. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw them lead 1-0 for the vast majority, going up 2-0 with 30 seconds left. Zed struggled to do much (14/18 KD), but he did have that second flag cap to ice the sweep.
A few good rounds in loss
July 27, 2018
Zed had a few good and a few bad rounds in the 3-1 loss to Team Kaliber on day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Zed's first round was rife with inconsistent play. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him never able to consistently slay with Team Kaliber, as he went 25/34 in the loss. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him put together the best round of anyone on his team, but they were still blown out by Team Kaliber, losing 6-2. He was fine, but he had no support. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his first really good round, as he notched 30 kills and a flag cap in the 3-2 win. Their only win on the round was won on the back on an excellent defensive display that saw UNILAD shut put Team Kaliber from the end of the first half, all the way through the second half. He was a big part of that defensive effort. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Zed play rather well, going 20/18 with 58 seconds on the objective, leading his team in both kills and Hardpoint time. They were totally outclassed, though, and were blown out in the loss.
Takes control of entire series
July 12, 2018
Zed carried his team through a tough series in a 3-1 win over compLexity Gaming on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Zed turned up to be the main powerhouse of UNILAD eSports as wuskin helped support him. He was able to take control to the game in Round 1 Harpdoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy thanks to a series of killstreaks. In Round 1 Hardpoint Zed was able to control of the map in the second set of rotations, landing a nine killstreak to score his full suite of Scorestreaks that would later clutch up the map. This was a similar scenario in Round 2 Search & Destroy where Zed was able to get a seven killstreak, again getting his full suite, in order to dominate the late-game of the round.
Crumbles against strong defense
July 11, 2018
Zed failed to make an impact in a 3-1 loss to eUnited on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Zed couldn't rebound against a tough eUnited this series. Unable to match their SMGs, Zed simply fell underneath his opponents' pressure. His woes started early on in Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks. Despite a solid start in the first set of rotations, thanks to early hill rotations, Zed couldn't maintain his momentum. Zed was unable to defend hills for long against eUnited, essentially only allowing his team scrap time on each objective. He would later lose control of the map in the second set of rotations as he failed to keep control of spawns.
Fries with some teamwork
July 11, 2018
Zed turned into a Search & Destroy master in a 3-2 win against Luminosity Gaming on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Zed took full advantage of Luminosity Gaming's weaknesses and ran with it. While he wasn't able to take them down during respawn, his ability to play off-angles and strange corners in Search & Destroy was key. In Round 5 Search & Destroy, he was able to survive 1-vs-2 engagements such as in Game 5, by pressuring their flanks. By Game 7, Zed had full Scorestreaks to take down Luminosity Gaming. Unfortunately, most of his Scorestreaks found little value due to awkward timing. Zed's flanks also helped to allow Alexx and wuskin to get in position, mainly in Search & Destroy.
Versatile in win
June 17, 2018
Zed switched between a leader and a support player in the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, keeping UNILAD Esports in the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
Zed had a solid Round 1 Hardpoint, though he died quite a bit against the strong OpTic Gaming performance. He went 33/33 in the round with 1:26 on the objective. It was a pretty close round, as they lost 250-203, and were right in it until the very end. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a rather easy win for UNILAD, and Zed and wuskin did the heavy lifting for UNILAD. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw wuskin and Zed lead the pack yet again, as they led a staunch defense and a solid offense to a 4-0 lead. They pushed back quite a few pushes from OpTic and kept their record clean. Round 4 Hardpoint saw UNILAD blow 139-64 and 190-100 leads to end up losing. Zed got them a late lead with some big kills, but OpTic came right back to erase that. Round 5 Search & Destroy was a tense 6-5 win, but Zed struggled a decent amount. He had the final kill in the first game, but played support to Seany and Alexx.
Teaming with UNILAD Esports
May 14, 2018
Zed is listed as a part of UNILAD Esports according to MLG.com's roster page.
ANALYSIS
While the official website might have spoiled the announcement, it was obvious UNILAD Esports would need to make some sort of roster change after skrapz joined Red Reserve over the break. Zed had played for Cyclone throughout the previous two Open events, finishing in 13th-16th place at CWL Birmingham and CWL Seattle.
Some good spots in loss
March 31, 2018
Zed had some good moments in the 3-0 loss to Echo Fox on Day 2 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
Zed was their best player for some good stretches of this match, namely Round 1 Hardpoint and the first half of Round 3 Capture the Flag. The first round saw him carry their offense early on and even paced them to a nice lead as the game got on. They certainly kept the first round rather close, and it was in large part due to Zed. He had a good first half in Round 3 Capture the Flag, but his second-half performance was poor -- he finished 14/23, really limping to the finish line. Round 2 Search & Destroy was tough for every member of Cyclone. Aqua had a ridiculous 16 kills in the round, and they did not have an answer for him.
Teaming with Most Wanted
March 8, 2018
Zed will join Most Wanted, the organization announced on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
While the team has been without an organization for the entire UK CWL National Circuit Stage 1, Zed and company did manage to take first place without losing a single game. As a result, the team is expected to have a shot at earning a pool play spot at CWL Atlanta.
Free Agent
Finds new team for CWL National Circuit
January 29, 2018
Zed, Peatie, Qwiker, and Braaain are a team of four and looking for an organization.
ANALYSIS
A potential unit who could run through the CWL National Circuit depending on what region they play for, each of the foursome have had time on the main stage at one point in their careers. Their roster will be one to monitor throughout the upcoming weeks.
Joining exceL Esports
December 6, 2017
Zed will not player under Team Infused, instead teaming with exceL Esports.
ANALYSIS
There was some confusion as to whether Zed would be playing on the team's CS:GO lineup, or simply was released entirely. Apparently the latter was the route Team Infused chose, opening the door for Zed to join QwiKeR and company on exceL Esports.
Not playing Call of Duty
November 29, 2017
Zed has joined Team Infused CS:GO roster, the organization announced on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
It was a bit of a surprise to see Zed no longer listed on the team's official roster traveling to CWL Dallas, but the organization seemed to have move already planned out, bringing on Defrag in his place.
Joins Team Infused
September 28, 2017
Zed is expected to join Team Infused after having been released earlier this month, DG Goldstein of Dexerto.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The move was made to correct an overemphasis of multiple assault rifle slayers on the team, bouncing out Alexx in the form of a faster-paced slayer. As of this writing, Team Infused will roll into Call of Duty: World War II with Zed, Zerg, Nolson and Niall.
