Fades into the background
June 7, 2018
Dashy didn't show much presence in a 3-0 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
While far from sacking his team, Dashy didn't step up in the way his team needed him too. Most maps saw him largely fade into the chaos as Luminosity rushed through every map with lightning-fast speed. The only moment Dashy stepped out from the shadows was in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where his support role allowed him to spot for his teammates. Taking the series to a Game 11, he stuck close with Censor to pick off Luminosity Gaming from across the map. However, when his opponents began to force close-range engagements Dashy struggled to fight back with any confidence.
Remaining on compLexity Gaming
April 13, 2018
Dashy will remain on compLexity Gaming, the organization confirmed on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Dashy likely had the most upside of any player on the former compLexity Gaming roster, so it made sense that if the organization planned on staying in competitive Call of Duty, they would opt to build around him. Still, there were plenty of rumors circling earlier in the week that compLexity Gaming planned to opt out of the scene entirely--plans that have obviously been eschewed with this latest announcement. Dashy will rejoin Blazt, his former Enigma6 Group teammate, on a brand new roster. What's more, he's automatically earned a spot in Stage 2 of the CWL Global Pro League by virtue of the acquisition of Ricky and Blazt, but it remains to be seen how well the team will do among the truly elite in the scene.
Joins compLexity Gaming
January 21, 2018
Dashy will join compLexity Gaming after the organization acquired the young player from Enigma6.
ANALYSIS
Dashy made it known prior to CWL New Orleans that the young slayer wanted out of Enigma6, even posting a #FreeDashy remark that gained instant traction in the competitive CoD community around the holidays, so this move makes sense. Especially given Enigma6 had already become combustible, with Censor and in-game leader General already stating they intended to leave the team, Dashy's move was inevitable. It's a bit of a surprise to see compLexity pick up the young slayer, however, given the success they had at the aforementioned LAN tournament, only to narrowly miss out on qualifying for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League. With Dashy in tow, compLexity Gaming figures to be one of the best North American teams in the National Circuit, and as a result, could very well find themselves in position to qualify for Stage 2 in the summer.
A lot of struggles in loss
January 12, 2018
Dashy had a tough time in the 3-1 loss to Rise Nation on Day 1 of the CWL New Orleans Open in pool play.
ANALYSIS
Dashy only had one positive performance in this one, coming in their lone round win, Round 3 Capture the Flag. The first half was slow and defensive, but the second half saw Enigma6's offense explode to win 7-2. He led the lobby in kills with 22, and he was a big reason why they had such an explosive offense; his slaying power opened up a lot of holes for his teammates. The rest of his game was bad, however. He had a porous Round 1 Hardpoint, going 19/30 as Enigma6 were competitive for the first half of the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy was similar to the first round. Dashy struggled, Enigma6 were good early on, but faltered late. Round 4 Hardpoint was an abomination of a round for Enigma6, as they only put up 35 points in the round. They were completely outclassed, and Dashy managed a measly five kills in the forgettable round.
Will play with Enigma6 for at least next tournament
January 3, 2018
Dashy will play with Enigma6 Group at CWL New Orleans, the organization announced on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Enigma6's last-second CWL New Orleans roster moves guarantee Dashy will play with the organization for at least the next tournament, despite reports surfacing over the Christmas festivities that the young slayer wanted out. Whether Dashy wants to play on Enigma6 Group is a different question entirely, as the young slayer was contractually stuck on a roster that seemed devoid of enough Pro Points to qualify for Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League, only for General and company to finesse Censor and Blazt into joining the team. Those moves should have Enigma6 on the precipice of earning a pool play spot at CWL New Orleans, but whether this newly formed team will do well at the aforementioned LAN event is another matter entirely.
Wants out of Enigma6 Group
December 26, 2017
Dashy has asked to be released from Enigma6 Group, his teammate General relayed on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
In a 27-minute video recorded Christmas Eve, General addressed feedback that had been simmering since Dashy's since-deleted tweet seemed to allude the slayer was contractually trapped on Enigma6, touching on a variety of topics including a nixed trade that would have sent Dashy to Rise Nation for Felony, and the previous releases of young slayers Bevils and Decemate. While the matter seems far from resolved, it doesn't seem as if Dashy will have the opportunity to leave for greener pastures anytime in the near future given his contractual obligations to Enigma6. With the organization currently only rostering two players (General and Dashy) it's unclear who will slot in for the pivotal Pro Points in time for CWL New Orleans.
Pops off only to fall short of the win
December 18, 2017
Dashy had a rough start that he clawed back from in style, but his renewed slaying prowess didn't NET Enigma6 the victories they needed as they fell to eUnited 3-1 on Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
Dashy didn't do the best during Round 1 Hardpoint, going negative with a KD of 21/22. However, Dashy made up for that score in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he would go double positive with a monstrous KD of 11/5, easily outclassing eUnited. However, as we all know, kills aren't everything in competitive Call of Duty, and Dashy was reminded of this lesson in Round 3 Capture the Flag where Dashy picked up no flag captures despite getting an impressive 24/18 KD. The lesson was driven home again as eUnited would put Enigma6 into the 100-point club in Round 4 Hardpoint despite Dashy putting up a striking 29/20 KD.
Strong start nullified in loss
December 9, 2017
Dashy was excellent to start but quickly fell off in the 3-0 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 2 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Dashy had an excellent Round 1 Hardpoint performance, notching 40 kills in the round. Unfortunately, his immense slaying ability was not enough to overcome Team EnVyUs. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag did not have the same individual success that Round 1 Hardpoint gave Dashy. He struggled in the final two rounds, as did Enigma6 as a whole.
Finds new organization
September 23, 2017
Dashy will be teaming with Enigma6 to begin the new competitive season, the organization announced late on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Dashy will join General on a new-look Enigma6 squad that has a tantalizing amount of potential in the form of S&D stars, Decemate and Bevils. That being said, the new editions to Enigma6 don't have much experience on the main stage, with just Dashy having some experience playing with Str8 Rippin near the end of the 2017 campaign.
Teaming with two S&D players
September 1, 2017
Dashy will be looking for one more player heading into the year, which he detailed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Dashy will be teaming with two prominent S&D players, both on the rise in terms of competitive play. It's an odd choice given Dashy's name recognition, and his positive venture into the amateur scene with Str8 Rippin during the 2017 Call of Duty World Championships, as it seems likely Dashy could have secured a spot on a better roster. Either way, adding a veteran leader appears to be the next move, and one that could pay dividends should he be willing to develop untapped talent.
Struggles to keep up in elimination loss
August 11, 2017
Dashy struggled to keep pace with Rise Nation in the 3-1 defeat to them on Day 3 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss eliminated Str8 Rippin from the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Dashy had a hard time with Rise Nation. Round 1 Hardpoint was a tense 250-237 loss; they consistently traded blows and swapped leads, but could not hold on. Dashy went 21/27 with 44 seconds on the objective. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Dashy make a heads up play in Game 6, defusing the bomb while the play was still going on right underneath Rise Nation's nose. They still went on to lose in 11 games. Round 3 Uplink was another back and forth affair, and Str8 Rippin made an impressive comeback after being down 8-5 with 1:50 left. They ended up winning 9-8. Dashy had two points and went 22/25 in the round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw them get totally blown out, trailing 100-25 and 200-67 before losing. Dashy went 20/21 with 59 seconds on the objective. All told, it was a mediocre end to an impressive run for Str8 Rippin.
Silently simmers in a rough series
August 11, 2017
Dashy faded into the chaos in a 1-3 loss to FaZe Clan on Day 3 of the 2017 CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
With Str8 Rippin' relying on Ricky, StuDy and Temp to slay, Dashy is this team's anchor player. But Dashy's aggression saw him caught out multiple times, especially in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he tried to blitz FaZe Clan nearly every round. His rushes never worked. Instead, he was FaZe Clan's first pick in several games, a costly mistake in Search & Destroy. During respawn rounds, Dashy would calm down but still wasn't great on defense. In Round 3 Uplink, for example, Dashy failed to stop a two-man push into his base and struggled nightly to retake base control from FaZe Clan.
Plays well in Pool F loss
August 10, 2017
Dashy had some nice rounds in the 3-1 defeat to Fnatic on Day 2 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss put Str8 Rippin in second place in the group, so they still qualified for the playoffs tomorrow.
ANALYSIS
Dashy had a solid showing against Fnatic, especially in the respawn rounds. Round 1 Hardpoint was their only win, and Dashy was a key part in that. He went 27/25, with 1:29 on the objective; he came in second on his team in both kills and Hardpoint time in the close round win. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a close 6-4 loss, and Ricky and StuDy did all of the heavy lifting on offense. Dashy was rather quiet in the round. Round 3 Uplink was a disjointed 6-2 loss for Str8 Rippin. They could not get any offense together, and they fell short. Dashy went 25/24, with zero points, in the round. Round 4 Hardpoint was another frustrating loss, with Dashy and Temp providing the only offense. Dashy went 24/21, with a whopping 1:49 on the objective, in the match-clinching round loss. Despite the loss, theu qualified for the playoffs and will be playing tomorrow.
Falls short of his team's heights
August 9, 2017
Dashy struggled in a breezy win against Evil Geniuses on Day 1 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Dashy was, largely, able to hang with his teammates in terms of slaying, but his big weakness was in making plays. Playing the support role, Dashy guarded his team in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Uplink. His weaknesses came out in full in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he was often the first to be killed, getting picked off five separate times by Evil Geniuses. Dashy's inability to safely scout cost his team a handful of games that they shouldn't have lost.
Jumps head first into Call of Duty with Str8 Rippin
June 13, 2017
Dashy will join forces with Str8 Rippin's first Call of Duty roster for CWL Anaheim, the team announced on its Twitter Monday.
ANALYSIS
Not much is known about Dashy, as Str8 Rippin will mark his first venture into the Call of Duty scene with a professional team. He has some tournament experience under his belt, having won a North American 2K tournament in May, but he is relatively untested. With such prolific players on his team in StuDy, Ricky and SinfuL, Dashy will certainly have a great set of players to lean on. With virtually no expectations in place, look for Str8 Rippin to shoot for the skies in Anaheim this weekend.
