Switches to support
May 18, 2018
Skrapz held steady in a 3-0 sweep of Splyce with a 57/47 KD on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz didn't have the best game this series, but he was able to provide outstanding support for his teammates. Joee, Rated and Zer0 easily had slaying handled, leaving Skrapz, normally the key slayer, left with the support role. Skrapz did this by playing loosely with his support role, pushing off-lanes while also holding back to allow him to create favorable spawns, such as in Round 1 Hardpoint, that left Splyce's spawns scattered. Skrapz closed Round 3 Capture the Flag with a 19/16 KD.
Easily pinches his opponents
May 17, 2018
Skrapz maneuvered around an aggressive Team Kaliber in a 3-2 win with a 91/78 KD on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz has been one of the brightest newcomers in the European scene, thanks largely to his solid slaying. However, he was able to prove that he's worth more than his KD. Coordinating with his teammates to work aroudn Team Kaliber, Skrapz and Red Reserve were able to bury their opponents in Search & Destroy before stealing Round 4 Hardpoint. Skrapz was vital Round 2 Search & Destroy as he was able to work with Joee to pinch Team Kaliber off of sites with a 12/3 KD. This allowed Red Reserve to easily retake objectives as Skrapz could pressure with Joee on one entrance while Rated flanked from the rear. He closed Round 4 Hardpoint with a 28/24 KD.
Pops off in Round 1 Hardpoint
May 16, 2018
Skrapz had a monstrous slaying performance against Epsilon in Round 1 Hardpoint as Red Reserve claimed a 3-1 victory against Epsilon on Tuesday of Week 1 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz started Red Reserve's series against Epsilon with a huge bang, going double positive and then some in KD with a devastating score of 25/10 in Round 1 Hardpoint. Although Epsilon attempted to fight back in Round 2 Search & Destroy, Skrapz answered back with a positive KD of 7/5. Like the rest of Red Reserve in Round 3 Capture the Flag, Skrapz underestimated how much Epsilon could fight back with their backs against the wall, as Red Reserve lost that round and Skrapz got his only negative KD of the series with 17/19. Red Reserve quickly regained control of the series and nailed Epsilon's coffin shut in Round 4 Hardpoint with a 32/27 KD.
Joining Red Reserve
May 3, 2018
Skrapz will join Red Reserve, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
There was rumors Skrapz could be headed to a North American team, but CWL rules allegedly prevented the player from making the move stateside. That should speak to the talent level Skrapz will bring to Red Reserve, who will jettison Joshh in a corresponding move. One of the better younger players in all of Europe, Skrapz should help Red Reserve become a bit more consistent and could theoretically contend for a Stage 2 Playoffs spot.
More good than bad in close win
March 31, 2018
Skrapz had some struggles but overall had a good showing in the 3-2 win over Enigma6 on Day 2 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz did not have a good performance in every round, namely Round 2 Search & Destroy where that Enigma6 dominated and UNILAD never had a good shot to win, and Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he struggled with consistency to a 17/18 KD in the round. Outside of that, however, he put together a good showing. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him make a key push to give them a lead, which eventually resulted in a win. He put together a similarly strong performance in Round 4 Hardpoint, as he and Wuskin hot off to hot starts that paced them to victory. He also was a big part of the comeback after being down 5-1 to win Round 5 Search & Destroy. He was key to this win and had more good moments than bad ones.
Excellent final two rounds in loss
March 21, 2018
Skrapz finished strong, but they still fell 3-1 to FaZe Clan on Day 1 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy were entirely forgettable for Skrapz, even when factoring in his nice start to Round 1 Hardpoint. He and Moose started strong, but he limped to a 27/34 KD on the back of that. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a 6-1 loss, and it was as lopsided as that sounds. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his first good round, with a lot of that coming in the second half. UNILAD as a team blew up in the second half, and they did it on the back of Skrapz's excellent display. He continued to play well in Round 4 Hardpoint. With UNILAD trailing 176-100 and looking out of it, Skrapz blew up. He helped lead them to a 220-200 deficit, and eventually reach 226 points before they lost. He went 39/25 in the round, and looked unstoppable.
Gets chance to lay back and plan
March 15, 2018
Skrapz got help from his teammates in a 3-1 win over Team EnVyUs on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Normally, Skrapz is the only member of UNILAD to keep up a positive KD. In this series, though, Skrapz finally got the support of his teammates to get a dramatic win over Team EnVyUs. This took an immense amount of pressure off of Skrapz, allowing him to just focus on winning gunfights instead of chaining kills for Scorestreaks. He would also play a more tactical game as he could rely on his teammates to get kills. For example, in Round 3 Capture the Flag Skrapz waited in Team EnVyUs' base until they were engaged in a fight in mid-map. This allowed Skrapz to get an easy flag capture into a 6-0 win.
Rips apart Splyce
March 15, 2018
Skrapz carried his team to an essential 3-2 win over Splyce on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz was the playmaker for UNILAD. His insane KD in every round was the only reason UNILAD was able to hold themselves together in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search and Destroy. In Round 1 Hardpoint, for example, UNILAD was able to build a big early lead thanks to Skrapz opening the map with a seven-kill streak. Round 4 Hardpoint, however, was Skrapz's biggest round. The mad man would drop an insane 24/12 KD by the third set of rotations, closing the round for his team.
A scrappy fighter despite loss
February 16, 2018
Skrapz had moments of brilliance and definitely put in effort despite UNILAD's 3-2 loss to Evil Geniuses on Day 5 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
One of the casters of the match between Evil Geniuses and UNILAD aptly described Skrapz as a "scrappy" fighter, and he has the numbers to prove it. Skrapz didn't have the strongest of starts during Round 1 Hardpoint, going negative in KD with 22/25 and earning the least amount of hardpoint control time for his team at a mere 38 seconds. Skrapz did put in work during Round 2 Search & Destroy with a positive KD of 8/7, a bright spot in UNILAD's loss that round. A long, drawn-out Round 3 Capture the Flag took its toll on Skrapz's score that round as he went negative with 18/28 and no flag captures to his name. It was in Round 4 Hardpoint that Skrapz earned the "scrappy" title, and for good reason - he dropped a 40-bomb on Evil Geniuses, finishing with a line of 41/27. By Round 5 Search & Destroy, Skrapz was in his element as he scored a whopping triple-positive KD of 15/5, but sadly even that impressive total wasn't enough to stop Evil Geniuses from clutching a narrow Game 11 victory.
Knocks down eUnited like bowling pins
February 15, 2018
Skrapz lined up some smooth shots in a 3-2 upset over eUnited on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
While Skrapz' slaying was a highlight, it was his ability to work with his teammates that truly helped Unilad win the series. Partnering with his twin brother, wuskin, the two were able to melt eUnited with superior firepower. At least on some maps. Round 2 Search & Destroy on Ardennes Forest was Skrapz' most successful round. In Game 6, Skrapz lined up a smooth triple kill as eUnited rushed through the bell tower, giving him a potent Fighter Pilot Scorestreak. However, when Skrapz used that Fighter Pilot in Game 9 he found absolutely no kills. But, by once again stealing high ground in the ruins, Skrapz would stabilize in Game 11 to clutch the map win.
Buckles under the pressure
February 8, 2018
Skrapz tried to aim for consistency instead of slaying in a disappointing 1-3 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 3 of the CWL Pro League Stage 1, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz seemed to have a plan, but the raw gunplay of Team EnVyUs prevented any opportunity from enacting it. Mainly, skrapz seemed to want to distract Team EnVyUs as someone on his team flanked, allowing them to win the fight and map control. The lackluster shots of both skrapz and Unilad meant the flanks often failed, but it did stall out Team EnVyUs, such as in Round 1 Hardpint and Round 4 Hardpoint.
Free Agent
Earns a spot in CWL Dallas
November 27, 2017
Skrapz and the rest of his roster have earned a pool play spot at CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
One of the only European teams to not have an organizational affiliate, Skrapz and the rest of his roster consisting of Moose, Wuskin, and Seany have earned one of the five pool play spots out of the European region. A 9th-16th finish in the most recent online 2K certainly is a dark mark on the team's resume, but it would be a surprise to see this roster strong long term, particularly in a European region that appears to have two dominant teams (Splyce and Red Reserve) followed by a whole bunch of question marks.
Leaves Fnatic
September 18, 2017
Skrapz will no longer be teaming with Fnatic and already has a new team set up for the Call of Duty: World War II season, the player announced on Monday.
ANALYSIS
While North America's version of Rostermania has largely stagnated, Europe continues to make headlines with Fnatic's young duo of Skrapz and wuskin hitting free agency after a year with the organization. Given that Seany has also signed on to team with the twins, and a fourth player is mysteriously waiting in the wings, whatever organization that does end up bringing on the new team should easily be in contention for a top spot in the region, much less the world.
A non-presence
August 12, 2017
Skrapz fades into the noise in a 3-0 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz was almost a non-presence this series, neither sacking nor assisting his teammates. While not terrible, Skrapz needed to bring much more in order to beat Luminosity Gaming. Round 1 Hardpoint on Scorch was a decent start for Fnatic, but not for Skrapz. The biggest problem was a lack of aggression from all of Fnatic, including Skrapz. On the opposite end, Skrapz was far too aggressive in Round 2 Search & Destroy as he forced unnecessary fights. Finally, in round 3 Uplink Skrapz simply looked burned out, the fast-pace Luminosity Gaming set finally getting to him.
Sees his struggles in loss
August 11, 2017
Skrapz saw his fair share of struggles in the 3-1 loss to Allegiance on Day 3 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss dropped Fnatic down to the Loser's Bracket.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was Fnatic's sole win, and it was a good one. They set the place early, and were comfortably ahead for all of the round. Allegiance made a strong push later in the round, but they were sitting at 248 points and were firmly ahead. Skrapz had 29 kills and over a minute of Hardpoint time in the round. It all came crashing down from there, starting in Round 2 Search & Destroy. Skrapz had the final kill in Game 4, the only game they won in the round. They got crushed in Round 3 Uplink (9-3) and Round 4 Hardpoint (250-103), as well. In the third round, Skrapz had two points and a 24/26 KD. In the fourth and final round, he had a 22/30 KD, and 46 seconds on the objective. He struggled, as did his team, and Fnatic fell to the Loser's Bracket.
