UNILAD Esports
Supports team instead of slaying
July 12, 2018
Alexx was surprisingly silent in a 3-1 win over compLexity Gaming on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
With wuskin, Seany and Zed slaying out, there's was little for Alexx to do besides hold spawns. Thankfully, he was able to fill this role admirably, baiting for his teammates and holding his team down in respawn rounds. The only round Alexx struggled in was in Round 3 Capture the Flag. However, Alexx's struggle was hardly his own as compLexity Gaming fired on all cylinders, pushing UNILAD Esports' spawns into a corner. Even Alexx, an admirable slayer, failed to break apart compLexity Gaming's assault.
Flanks to win tight round
July 11, 2018
Alexx found a narrow map win in a 3-1 loss to eUnited on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Alexx was the main reason for UNILAD Esports' Round 2 Search & Destroy win. Like the rest of his team, Alexx had to pull sneaky plays in order to beat a strong eUnited. This meant UNILAD Esports had to hit flanks often, at least for Alexx and wuskin. However, Alexx found much more success than his teammates in hitting flanks. In Game 10 of Round 2 Search & Destroy, Alexx was able to catch eUnited's Arcitys calling in a Fighter Pilot Scorestreak, blocking a Scorestreak in the process and landing a key kill. In Game 11, Alexx was then able to land two early kills, clutching a key round.
Plays off-angles to win
July 11, 2018
Alexx popped off in a 3-2 win against Luminosity Gaming on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Alexx put on a shockingly strong series against the strong Luminosity Gaming. This was mainly done by Alexx playing strange angles against his opponents, and by using his assault rifle to keep distance away from a close-range enemy. In Round 2 Search & Destroy on Sainte Marie Du Mont, for example, Alexx ran circles around his opponent by holding the top floor of Restaurant and using his smoke grenades to provide cover for his team. His strange style proved useful in Game 9 where he was able to beam two kills on two players rushing him with frags and smoke grenades.
Excellent final two rounds in close win
June 17, 2018
Alexx shined brightly in the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, keeping UNILAD Esports alive in the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Alexx had a rather slow start to this one, but his last two rounds more than made up for it. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him slide into a support role behind strong games from wuskin and Seany - especially in the early portion of the round. The all ended up fading a bit as OpTic Gaming went off to secure a 250-203 win. He went 32/35 in the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag were very similar rounds for Alexx and UNILAD - they won both rounds rather easily (6-3 in Round 2 Search & Destroy and 4-0 Capture the Flag), and Alexx was a solid support player behind wuskin and Zed in both rounds. Round 4 Hardpoint was where Alexx broke out. He was a monster, and basically single-handedly led them to a 190-100 lead. They would blow that lead, but Alexx was stellar in the loss. He went 33/27 in the round, with a minute on the objective. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him and Seany dominate and led UNILAD to a 6-5 win and an upset victory. Alexx hit double digit kills in the final round.
Teaming with UNILAD
April 19, 2018
Alexx has joined UNILAD ahead of the CWL Seattle Open, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Alexx had been playing with GGEA Purple for the majority of the season, but the loss of Moose to Vitality opened the door for the 18-year-old to join UNILAD. In a fairly pedestrian Pool B, there's an outside chance Alexx and company could actually earn a spot in the winners bracket at the CWL Seattle Open, but the real question will be whether the new addition can lift UNILAD in the standings from their ho-hum placement during Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
Released from Team Infused
September 28, 2017
Alexx has been released from Team Infused, Dan Goldstein of Dexerto.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Alexx will hit free agency after the team introduced Zed to the roster, a move that seemed imminent given the amount of assault rifle mains that were previously on the team. While the roster change doesn't tilt the scales in favor of Infused after both Red Reserve and Splyce made major moves during the offseason, both Zed as well as Alexx could help push a fringe European team to another level depending on the given situation.
Fails to show up in loss
August 13, 2017
Alexx only managed a 39/53 KD during Infused's loss against FaZe Clan on Saturday that knocked them into the losers bracket of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Alexx, simply put, had an abysmal series here against FaZe on Saturday. In all three of the rounds played in this lopsided sweep, he was the worst member of his team, effectively giving no positives whatsoever for his team. He had the lowest KD for most of Round 1 Hardpoint and barely showed up for Round 2 Search & Destroy. Even when things switched to Uplink in the final round, he was still limping along, not giving his team much help at all. It was simply a poor showing from the player in this lopsided loss.
Finds opportunities but can't clinch them
August 10, 2017
Alexx tried to play big in a loss to eUnited in Group C on Day 2 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Alexx wanted to make the big plays but often found himself clutching the final moments. The plays were sound, in theory, with Alexx capitalizing on minor mistakes that eUnited made. For example, in Round 3 Uplink on Throwback, Alexx was able to score a fast one-point as Clasyter attempted to show off with a sniper rifle at the start of the round. Alexx knew Clayster couldn't defend fully with just a sniper and he played on it. But in Round 2 Search & Destroy, his decisiveness saw shakier results, such as in Game 8 when he burned his Reactive Armor far too early before a 1-vs-1 with SiLLy.
Solid in loss
June 25, 2017
Alexx continued his coming out party with a solid showing despite the 3-1 loss that dropped eRa down into the loser's bracket of CWL Sheffield on Championship Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Alexx was impressive on his debut, and that continued in this one. eRa made a roaring comeback after a weak opening to Round 1 Hardpoint, and Alexx was a big part of that. He was not a massive slayer, only going 17/15, but he was a rock on the objective, leading his team with 1:45. He soaked up time while his teammates were aggressive, and helped them get off to a quick start. That quick start would quickly stop, however. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw eRa get creamed 6-1. They seemed to be down one or two players immediately, and could not counter Fnatic's strong team game -- they simply could not match up. Alexx was respectable in Round 3 Uplink, going 21/22 in a round where they lost 8-0. They simply could not get anything going, though Alexx held his own. Round 4 Hardpoint was more of the same as Fnatic went out to a 200-90 lead that proved insurmountable. They got to 146 points on the back of Niall, but their inexperience proved too much and the fell to the loser's bracket.
Impressive in his debut game
June 24, 2017
Alexx makes a strong premiere in his win against Red Reserve on Day 1 of CWL Sheffield.
ANALYSIS
Alexx was an unknown player in eRa Eternity's lineup, being a newcomer to the scene, but he's made a strong case for himself. One of the stronger slayers of eRa Eternity, Alexx worked well with his teammates to secure kills and points. The teamwork was on full display in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Breakout where Alexx rolled around the map with his team to hunt down quick teamfights and easy picks. One of his better moments was in Round 4 Hardpoint on Breakout. Breaking into the first Commissary hill with three kills, Alexx was able to start a vicious snowball for his team with a strong break and an even stronger defense. Those handful of kills essential gave eRa map control and the series win.
