Leaving UNILAD for Reciprocity
October 4, 2018
Seany will leave UNILAD and join Team Reciprocity, the organization confirmed on Monday.
It's unclear if UNILAD plans on staying in the CoD competitive sphere, but it's hard to argue that Reciprocity isn't making a bold statement in its return to the scene. UNILAD finished in 9th-12th placed at the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships, playing in a total of six series. Surprisingly, only one of those went past three games, with Seany earning a 1.05 KD across the subsequent games. Along with ANZ player Denz and former Vitality leader Tommey, Reciprocity should immediately challenge for one of the title of top teams in the world, but with a plethora of North American super teams also forming, it remains to be seen what the highest potential of this team could be.
Steadily regresses in win
August 18, 2018
Seany started excellently but got progressively worse as the 3-0 loss to eUnited went on, as they dropped to the loser's bracket on Day 4 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
Seany had three different types of performances in each of the three rounds of this loss. Round 1 Hardpoint was his best round, as he was part of the group that led them to their early lead. He did totally fall about down the stretch, but he certainly struggled a bit as eUnited caught fire and erased the UNILAD lead. He finished the round with 33 kills and a lobby leading 1:44 on the objective. He was about average in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as he was never able to find that early-first round form. He did have a clutch play to keep them alive, netting three kills in game eight to keep them alive for a bit. Round 3 Capture the Flag was very bad, however, as they were shutout and he went 10/20 in the loss. eUnited were a well-oiled machine at that point, and Seany had no answer for them.
Dominant respawn in sweep
August 16, 2018
Seany did excellent work in both respawn rounds of the sweep win over Team EnVyUs on Day 2 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
Seany had some absolutely excellent respawn performances in this win. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him stay away from the objective, netting a team-low 41 seconds there, but saw him slay everything in sight. He was dominant there from beginning to end, putting up 37 kills; he was the only one in the lobby to hit the 30 kill plateau, as he was head and shoulders above the rest of the field with his gun. Round 3 Capture the Flag was not as prolific, but he was a very solid piece of the puzzle in the 3-0 win. Everyone on UNILAD had 19 kills, putting together a wonderfully balanced and steady attack that flustered Team EnVyUs. His Search & Destroy performance was solid, as he helped support wuskin in their 11-game win.
Stuck to the objective in the win
July 28, 2018
Seany consistently stayed on the objective in the sweep win over OpTic Gaming on Day 2 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
Seany was an objective-based performer in the win. He had a below 1.00 KD in each of the respawn rounds (23/26 in Round 1 Hardpoint, and 18/19 in Round 3 Capture the Flag), and he was invisible in Round 2 Search & Destroy. Despite his myriad of slaying woes, he did contribute quite a bit on the objective. He had a whopping 1:47 on the objective in Round 1 Hardpoint and had the first flag cap in Round 3 Capture the Flag. Seany did not slay well, but his strong objective play made him a contributor regardless.
Poor outside of CTF
July 27, 2018
Seany had a great Capture the Flag round, but did not do much else, in the 3-1 loss to Team Kaliber on day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
Seany's only good round in this one came in Round 3 Capture the Flag, which was their only win of the match. He went 34/32 in the 3-2 win, and provided steady and reliable defense as UNILAD fended off an incredible amount of attacks to keep their 3-2 lead they took late in the first half. Round 1 Hardpoint was an okay round for him, as he notched 30 kills but died 35 times. He was a rather inconsistent slayer, as he struggled to string kills together and go on a run. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a struggle for him and UNILAD, as they lost 6-2 and never really were close to competing. Round 4 Hardpoint was the same as Round 2: they lost easily. Seaany went 16/25, as he was not able to withstand an impressive effort by everyone on Team Kaliber.
Takes control of the second half of series
July 12, 2018
Seany appeared in the late-game in a 3-1 win over compLexity Gaming on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Seany struggled this series against a streaky compLexity Gaming. Going up against the slay-heavy Dashy, there was little Seany could do in either close-range or long-range fights. However, Seany was able to find his stride early in the series to help his teammates hold spawns. For example, in Round 2 Search & Destroy Seany's long-range support was able to assist wuskin in slaying out his opponents. The smooth shots went a long way in covering both wuskin's and Zed's engagements that map. In Round 4 Hardpoint, Seany would also find his stride with his shots, slaying out compLexity Gaming in a smooth map thanks to his teammates constantly pushing lanes.
Slips against fast team
July 11, 2018
Seany struggled to make his presence felt in a 3-1 loss to eUnited on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Seany had his hands full this series against eUnited's formation. Going up against a double rifle setup, there was little Seany could do in either close-range or long-range fights, making it difficult to hold spawns. In Round 4 Hardpoint, for example, Seany was forced to settle for scrap time during rotations, going to Hardpoints early to score easy points before being kicked out by eUnited. While this allowed Seany to keep UNILAD eSports in the game, it did little to help his teammates gain a lead. This wasn't helped by his fairly flat slaying as he was often pressured by eUnited's SMGs.
Provides a solid base for his team
July 11, 2018
Seany provided key support in a 3-2 win against Luminosity Gaming on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
As Alexx, Zed and wuskin beamed kills, Seany had all the freedom to gain map control. However, he sometimes was overeager in finding kills during tense moments. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy went off without a hitch, thanks to Seany holding back to controlling spawns and landing the occasional kill. But when things got hectic in Round 4 Hardpoint on London Docks, Seany abandoned his anchor control to help shore up his teammates' assault. On the third Docks Warehouse, Seany lost early hill rotations and spawns to Luminosity Gaming as he attempted to hold Main Street. This proved to be a mistake as Seany was then unable to break his enemies' spawns going into the final hill.
Lots of solid play in win
June 17, 2018
Seany had a lot of good to take away from the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, keeping UNILAD Esports alive in the loser's bracket.
Seany had a nice start to Round 1 Hardpoint, helping keep them close with OpTic Gaming. He ended up fading as the round went on - he ended up going 30/34 with 1:23 on the objective, with the brunt of his good play coming early. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him provide support behind strong games from Zed and wuskin in the 6-3 win. Seany did the same in Round 4 Hardpoint, providing support behind strong games from Zed and wuskin. They won rather comfortably, 4-0, and did an excellent job of pushing back some strong, streak-filled pushes by OpTic. He did not have the best Round 4 Hardpoint, playing support behind Alexx while UNILAD took a 190-100 lead. They eventually blew that lead and lost the round to go to a fifth round. Round 5 Search & Destroy was the Seany and Alexx show - the two of them dominated and were the biggest reasons why they were able to get through OpTic Gaming to win game eleven. Seany got the final kill in that game to win it.
Strong Hardpoints in win
March 31, 2018
Seany came up large in the Hardpoints of the 3-2 win over Enigma6 on Day 2 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
Seany had himself a very good time in both Hardpoint rounds. He topped the 30 kill mark in both Round 1 and Round 4 Hardpoint and was a key part of both wins. He did not start off the first round well and really limped out of the gate as his teammates were on their game. He woke up his play around half way through, when the slaying of UNILAD just became too much for Enigma6. His emergence as a strong slayer in the round helped fuel that push. He had a similar showing in the fourth round. He started a little slow but picked it up to be a strong third man behind Wuskin and Skrapz. Seany ended up getting the final Hardpoint seconds to force a Round 5 Search & Destroy. The rest of his performance was behind his Hardpoint showings, however. He was invisible in both Round 2 Search & Destroy -- a 6-2 loss -- and Round 5 Search & Destroy, even during the five-game win streak after trailing 5-1. He limped to a 14/22 KD in Round 3 Capture the Flag, despite a nice first half of that round. Overall, Seany was a big part of the win, despite his struggles in some rounds.
Struggled mightily in loss
March 21, 2018
Seany struggled for almost all of the 3-1 loss to FaZe Clan on Day 1 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
Seany really lagged behind the rest of the field, and for the most part cost UNILAD sports a chance to really make a run at beating FaZe Clan. His biggest moment came late in Round 3 Capture the Flag, when he found a perfect hiding spot, and provided excellent defense as the clock was ticking to zero. Those couple of kills were key to keeping UNILAD alive in the match. However, outside of that, he was wildly outslayed by FaZe Clan, failing to finish above a 1.00 KD in any round, and was mostly a non-factor.
Slays with his SMG
March 15, 2018
Seany steadied his aim to take a 3-1 win over Team EnVyUs on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division B.
Seany, much like Moose, rebounded their SMG game to tear through Team EnVyUs. While generally sticking to support, he played a much more aggressive game that put constant pressure on their opponents' defenses. And because of Team EnVyUs' weak SMGs this series, Seany was able to score important kills that wrecked EnVyUs' spawns. For example, in Round 1 Hardpoint Seany landed a double kill at the start of the map that pushed Team EnVyUs' spawns past Barrel Warehouse. Those few seconds of walking allowed UNILAD to set up for defenses and rotations very early in the game.
Finds momentum in the late game
March 15, 2018
Seany struggled to slay out in an SMG-heavy game in a 3-2 win over Splyce on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
Seany couldn't slay out for his teammates until the tail-end of the series as most of the series focused on SMGs. Seany, normally an AR player, struggled to adjust to the SMGs until the tail end of the series. Mostly, he struggled to make much impact against Splyce as his shots failed to find lay down any pressures, especially in respawn rounds. In the last set of rotations in Round 4 Hardpoint, Seany did begin to string kills together with Skrapz, finally finding the right role by taking a step back from the fight and securing kills from range.
Ultimately drags his team down
February 16, 2018
Seany's consistently negative KD totals certainly didn't help UNILAD in their 3-2 loss to the Evil Geniuses on Day 5 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
UNILAD's series against the Evil Geniuses was definitely not a good one for Seany. He started Round 1 Hardpoint with the worst KD of his team at 22/26, despite UNILAD claiming that round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Seany go double-negative in KD, only tallying a 4/8 KD to his name. Round 3 Capture the Flag did see some signs of life from Seany in the form of a flag capture he earned, but that was offset by his lackluster KD of 17/30. Seany picked up the pace a bit in Round 4 Hardpoint, but he still went negative in KD with 32/37 and the least hardpoint control time of his team at 37 seconds. Seany ultimately ended the series as mediocre as he started in Round 5 Search & Destroy, with a paltry 4/9 KD, becoming a liability for UNILAD in this loss.
Fades in a noisy victory
February 15, 2018
Seany was quiet in a massive 3-2 win over eUnited on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
Unlike Day 4 or Day 5, Seany didn't make a large impact on the game. This is surprising as he went up against a limping eUnited, a team that was ripe for Seany's snappy aim. This resulted in an uneven series for Unilad, as Skrapz and wuskin had to pick up the slaying pace. Round 4 Hardpoint on Sainte Marie Du Mont was the best showcase of Seany's performance. He played decently in the early game, slaying and staggering eUnited early in the round, but stumbled in the late game. After eUnited made a comeback, Seany struggled to give his team consistent spawns, forcing Unilad to trickle into a hectic fight for the final points that they ultimately lost.
