Teaming with EnVyUs
September 23, 2018
Silly will join the rest of his Evil Geniuses teammates on Team EnVyUs, the organization confirmed on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Silly will move over to Team EnVyUs after the organization acquired the current World Champions following their inspired run to conclude the Call of Duty: World War II season. Silly joined Evil Geniuses towards the start of Stage 2 and promptly helped push the organization over the top. Alongside the only remaining EnVyUs member, Huke, Silly will likely reprise his role as an aggressive slayer, providing Aches and Apathy a chance to navigate the rest of the field.
Slays and supports with Assault
August 19, 2018
SiLLy supported Assault to win his first tournament in a back-to-back Grand Finals win against Team Kaliber, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy evolved from a support player to a lead SMG slayer. His movement ability, shown across both series, allowed him to shut down Team Kaliber's roaming tactics. This was largely down by coordinating with Assault, Evil Geniuses' other SMG player, to pinch objectives. This was best seen in the first Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar where SiLLy and Assault were able to zone Team Kaliber by scoring early kills in lane. The second series saw SiLLy's and Assault's coordination in full force as the two were able to blow apart a limp Team Kaliber by pinching their flanks, such as in Round 3 Capture the Flag where SiLLy had the uncanny ability to worm his way into his opponents' flanks.
Tears through slow opponent
August 19, 2018
SiLLy stepped up to help in a 3-1 win over Team Kaliber on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship, landing a spot at the Grand Finals.
ANALYSIS
Even back when he was back with eUnited, SiLLy was never known as a strong slayer. This weekend, however, proved that SiLLy can provide key killstreaks to swing entire rounds. In Round 4 Hardpoint on London Docks, SiLLy dominated the map with an eight killstreak that scored him Scorestreaks. SiLLy was also able to begin plays for his teammates without killing, such as in Round 3 Capture the Flag. In the second half of the round, SiLLy was able to warm his way behind Team Kaliber's defenses to force a flag pull, scoring his team a key point while the score was tied.
Starts the reverse-sweep
August 18, 2018
SiLLy blew apart Team EnVyUs in a 3-2 win on Day 4 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy may have had a slow start, but he completely found his stride in the late-game of the series. As Team EnVyUs forced coordinated teamfights in the first two maps, SiLLy struggled to slay out while stuck in the middle of a pinch. Round 3 Capture the Flag, however, saw SiLLy break out thanks to maneuverability, stealing a flag capture in the second half of overtime to start his team's reverse-sweep of Team EnVyUs. SiLLy's fast movement would make a deadly force in Round 4 Hardpoint on Gibraltar where he was able to get his Full suite of Scorestreaks by the first Castle Road with a seven killstreak. These streaks would be vital in forcing the Round 5 Search & Destroy.
Utterly dominant in win
August 17, 2018
SiLLy was excellent from the middle of round one on in the sweep win over Team Vitality on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy put on a show in this rather simple win Round 1 Hardpoint saw them win 250-86, as Team Vitality never really threatened the Evil Geniuses' lead. SiLLy was their best player in the win, notching a lobby-leading 29 kills and pairing it with a very impressive 1:11 on the objective. He was everywhere, and Evil Geniuses crushed Team Vitality. Funnily enough, he started off just okay, but an incredible run in the middle of the round unlocked his game for the rest of the match. Round 2 Search & Destroy was the only competitive round in the win, as Team Vitality pushed them to 10 games. SiLLy was excellent yet again, as he paced them to the win with strong and consistent slaying. Round 3 Capture the Flag was tied 1-1 at the half, and ended up being a 3-1 win for Evil Geniuses. SiLLy's fingerprints were all over this one as well, as he had 19 kills and all three flag caps in the win. Simply put, he was excellent and Evil Geniuses outplayed Team Vitality.
Delivers for his team
June 27, 2018
SiLLy dragged his team ahead in a 3-2 loss to Red Reserve on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy was the powerhouse for Evil Geniuses this series, for better and for worse. Despite the lack of help, SiLLy was still able to keep his team in the game, carrying them to a Round 5 Search & Destroy. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy were only close as SiLLy was able to consistently win key gunfights by flanking Red Reserve. SiLLy was able to use his lightning-fast mobility to take down a slow Red Reserve in Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint. In both rounds, SiLLy worked well with his teammates to pinch and pin down his opponents. However, a lack of coordination doomed Evil Geniuses in Round 5 Search & Destroy as SiLLy struggled to watch lanes and corners.
Clutches up with his team multiple times against Team Kaliber
May 26, 2018
SiLLy and the rest of Evil Geniuses made plenty of major plays to steal a 3-0 win from Team Kaliber on Thursday of Week 2 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
The series victory for Evil Geniuses was a 3-0 sweep, but it was surprisingly close nonetheless. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Evil Geniuses clutched the victory by a matter of five seconds, and SiLLy's stats reflect that clutch as he was barely positive in KD with 33/31. SiLLy would notch a not-so-hot KD of 5/6 in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but his team still clutched up once again, this time by one game that came down to a single gunfight. A final clutch to seal the sweep came in Round 3 Capture the Flag, where Evil Geniuses won by one flag capture, and SiLLy earned another barely positive KD of 20/19.
Hot start, cold end to win
May 18, 2018
SiLLy faded after a great start in the 3-2 win over Team EnVyUs on Day 3 of Week 1 of Stage 2 of the CWL Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy's performance in this match can be broken down into two sections: the first two rounds and the last three rounds. SiLLy was excellent in the first two rounds, leading Evil Geniuses to a 2-0 lead in the process. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him play a key part in their strong slaying game. Evil Geniuses were constantly filling the kill feed, and that allowed them to stop any and every push made by Team EnVyUs. He finished with 31 kills and 1:26 on the objective, putting in a stellar game on both sides. Round 2 Search & Destroy was his best round, as he finished 14/4 in the 6-3 win, including a seven streak to finish it off: an ace in Game 8, and three kills in the decisive Game 9. The rest of his performance left a lot to be desired though. He went 7/25 in Round 3 Capture the Flag, and 16/22 in Round 4 Hardpoint, two rounds that were won rather easily by Team EnVyUs. Round 5 Search & Destroy was an easy 6-0 win for Evil Geniuses, but SiLLy was a non-factor. He had just one kill through the first four games, and never really found his footing despite his team's dominance. He was inconsistent, but his strong play early on certainly aided them in the win.
Excellent finish to win
May 17, 2018
SiLLy had an excellent final round in the 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Day 2 of Week 1 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy had a slow start to this match, but his performance after Round 1 Hardpoint more than made up for it. They won the first round rather easily, but SiLLy struggled in all aspects of the round. He went 21/31, and had 57 seconds on the objective. He quickly made up for his slow start, as he and Assault carried the load early on in Round 2 Search & Destroy. While they lost the round, SiLLy started to turn a corner on an individual level. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a dominant display for both SiLLy and Evil Geniuses. He had nine kills through the first half of the former, and ended with 20 in the 5-2 win. They led early and they never really were close to losing their lead. The latter was similar to that, in which Evil Geniuses won the round with ease and SiLLy was dominant. With Assault struggling to slay throughout the fourth and final round, SLLy did the heavy lifting for Evil Geniuses, and notched 30 kills in the round win.
Plays too fast for slow teammates
April 23, 2018
SiLLy fell victim to indecision in a back-to-back grand finals loss to Rise Nation at the CWL Seattle Open, losing the first series 3-1 and the second series 3-0.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy is normally a fast player, but the slow and careful tactics that Evil Geniuses used up to this point wound up hurting him and the team. SiLLy struggled to find ways to poke down Rise Nation's defenses, partly due to how well Rise Nation was shooting and partly due to Evil Geniuses' lack of commitment to fighting. Evil Geniuses refused to start fights unless they knew it was in their favor after SiLLy or Aches got a pick. This worked in the first Round 1 Hardpoint, but as he struggled to slay out in subsequent maps the strategy faltered. So instead of letting SiLLy lead teamfights, most of the team waited around for kills to fall their way. This turned into an utter disaster in the first Round 4 Hardpoint and the second Round 3 Capture the Flag.
Takes revenge against eUnited
April 22, 2018
SiLLy played fast and aggressively against old teammates in a 3-0 win over eUnited on Sunday of CWL Seattle to advance to the Grand Finals.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy proved how much he has improved with his faster and more aggressive SMG role. Playing a style closer to Prestinni's, simply running around and pushing lanes, SiLLy was slightly more coordinated than Prestinni. This small edge meant a massive difference. SiLLy could push out lanes and scout for his teammates, or push with them thanks to his flexibility. Between him and Aches, though, he rarely had to switch off of an SMG. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, he turned around a lagging series with a 13/5 KD. All he had to do was rush eUnited as his teammates fragged and smoked them out of cover.
Plays a faster and stronger SMG role
April 22, 2018
SiLLy showed off his new playstyle in a 3-0 win on Saturday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
While eUnited SiLLy played a more defensive and supportive role for the team, anchoring spawns and protecting Clayster's and Arcitys' flanks, EG SiLLy plays much different. Now he is once again playing a more aggressive that he's comfortable with. This was partly due to the fast-game Evil Geniuses played, often running triple SMGs to bully Team EnVyUs. The freedom to roam the map thanks to the set-up allowed SiLLy to pressure objectives and enemies, such as in Round 3 Capture the Flag. SiLLy was able to steal the flag in the fast of the map thanks to his quick thinking and wrapping behind Team EnVyUs as they engaged the rest of his team.
Lands with Evil Geniuses
April 12, 2018
SiLLy has been released from eUnited, but will join Evil Geniuses for the CWL Seattle Open, the organization announced on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
With NAMELESS and Enable out the door, Evil Geniuses opted to bring on a different flex player in the name of the much ostracized SiLLy. Often the scapegoat for any criticism pertaining to eUnited, SiLLy was the de-facto objective player and certified baiter, setting the stage for Clayster and Arcitys to slay for their team. SiLLy's expected to do the same role on a suddenly different Evil Geniuses squad, with Assault likely acting as the main slayer alongside Apathy, with Aches taking more command of the shotcalling. It'll be interesting to see whether this roster remains together following the CWL Seattle Open, as the abbreviated Rostermania window should be a bit more laxed upon the conclusion of the next major open event.
Anchors his team
April 7, 2018
SiLLy held his team's defenses in a 3-0 sweep of Rise Nation on Day 1 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy has slowly adjusted to a more defensive role over the course of Stage 1, with this week showing the continued improvement of SiLLy. While not slaying out, he was able to give his team space by playing behind Prestinni to hold flanks and secure kills. This became exceptionally helpful in Round 1 Hardpoint where his ability to secure kills allowed him to get an early Scorestreak. These Scorestreaks would then help eUnited secure rotations in the mid-game.
Drops off from the map
April 2, 2018
SiLLy fell just slightly short in a 3-0 loss to Reckless in the Loser's Bracket of CWL Birmingham, slotting into 13th-16th place.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy and Prestinni were the SMG duo for eUnited, but neither of them were able to consistently lay down the pressure their team needed. Getting swept in only three round, SiLLy barely kept up with Reckless despite performing his role of pushing spawns. The lack of coordination from eUnited punished SiLLy's aggression, often leaving him out of position from his teammates, making him unable to trade or have his teammates help him. This was best seen in Round 2 Search & Destroy where SiLLy was unable to find early picks despite pushing the off-lane for his team.
