Dallas Fuel
Completes redemption tour at All-Star Game
June 26, 2018
Seagull will be part of the starting roster for the Pacific Division at the All-Star Game this summer, Blizzard has announced.
ANALYSIS
Through all the ups and downs this season with the Dallas Fuel, Seagull has been recognized for his contributions and will start for the Pacific Division at the All-Star Game. Despite looking like one of the worst teams through the first three stages, Seagull was a larger part of the team's resurgence and playoff appearance in Stage 4. He will take those talents into the All-Star Game as the Pacific Division will go for the first-ever All-Star title.
Cant keep pace with Meko
June 19, 2018
Seagull has come into his own in the off-tank role but paled in comparison to a true off-tank player in the Dallas Fuel's 3-2 playoff loss to the New York Excelsior.
ANALYSIS
Seagull has always been a consistent player who understand the fundamentals of the game very well. He did a good job being aggressive and peeling for his supports against New York, as D.Va, but missed several opportunities across the series. Seagull was often caught out of position and was forced to use his ultimate to re-mech and stay in the fight. If OGE will be the Anchor of Dallas' roster going forward, Seagull will undoubtedly be the putty used to fill any weak positions.
Shining in the new Dallas lineup
June 2, 2018
Seagull has really been able to do what he does best for Dallas, evidenced even in a 3-1 loss to the San Francisco Shock.
ANALYSIS
Seagull has shined for the new-look Dallas Fuel, not only playing the off-tank role but also being able to flex onto DPS when the team needs it. He has also been doing a great job of learning his different roles from some of the best players in the League. Mentioned in a post-game AMA, Bischu of the L.A. Gladiators said that he had talked to Seagull about playing D.Va, explaining why the Fuel player has seen an uptick in play.
Fitting into new role
May 25, 2018
Seagull is getting more comfortable with his D.Va play and still got to play some DPS in the Fuel's 3-0 win over the Boston Uprising.
ANALYSIS
Seagull has long been a jack of all trades, but he is really filling in the off-tank flex role well with Mickie making the switch to Brigitte. Seagull has good synergy with both Mickie and OGE, which led to a well-placed Self-Destruct that ultimately helped the Fuel secure Blizzard World.
Still tanking
May 19, 2018
Seagull is still playing off-tank for the Dallas Fuel, playing D.Va in the Fuel's 3-1 victory over the Shanghai Dragons on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Seagull, who was expected to return to Flex DPS with the debut of OGE in Stage 3, is still tanking for the Fuel. The meta shift combined with the absence of EFFECT has pushed Seagull into something of a tanking role once again. He has proven to have a good grasp of D.Va and could be part of a lineup that gives Dallas something other than embarrassment this stage.
Flounders in possible final start
April 7, 2018
Seagull looked lackluster in what could be his last start for a while as the Dallas Fuel fell 3-1 to the Los Angeles Gladiators.
ANALYSIS
Seagull, who has been playing off-tank recently, looked only as good in his series against the Gladiators as he did his first start in the role. His inability to improve at the position over time was likely due to lack of desire or lack of necessity. With OGE eligible to return next week, Seagull will return to playing a flex DPS role and Mickie will resume his off-tank duties.
Starting despite trade request
April 4, 2018
Seagull was still in the lineup for the Dallas Fuel's 3-1 victory over the Shanghai Dragons despite rumors surfacing that he had requested a trade away from the team.
ANALYSIS
Seagull continues to be a serviceable stand-in for Mickie, who is standing in for OGE while he serves his suspension. Once OGE returns it is likely that Seagull will once again be relegated to the bench.
Unlikely to be traded
April 2, 2018
Orignally reporting that Seagull had requested a trade from the Dallas Fuel, Rod "Slasher" Breslau updated his story on Monday via Twitter to say that Seagull would be staying put.
ANALYSIS
Breslau asserts that the Fuel have saddled their flex player with a hefty price tag and that there is a lack of interest in Seagull from other teams which severely limits Dallas' options in potential trade talks. Additionally, it is reported that Seagull will maintain his current off-tank role until OGE is eligible to play and will then switch back to a primarily DPS role.
Requests trade from Fuel
March 31, 2018
Seagull has requested a trade from the Dallas Fuel, reports Rod "Slasher" Breslau.
ANALYSIS
Just when we thought things might have settled down a bit, we've got more turmoil coming from this team. Citing internal conflicts and a lack of practice/playing time, Seagull wants off the wild ride that is the Dallas Fuel. This move isn't the most surprising, however. The team has been trying to figure out their tank situation and the latest experiment was putting Seagull on off tank with Mickie as the main tank. It seemed to work out well enough, but that clearly wasn't what Seagull wanted if this request is anything to go on. He's a fully capable flex player, which should make his prospects at landing with another team pretty strong now that his interest in being traded is on the table.
Wins duels left and right
February 10, 2018
Seagull played incredibly well in a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Gladiators on Friday.
ANALYSIS
From the start of this series, Seagull was giving his team the best chance at a win. Whether it was winning duels with Hydration in the skies on Pharah or just giving his team room to maneuver with strong overall DPS, he simply did it all for the Fuel. With him and Taimou playing so well, the Fuel have some good foundation moving into Stage 2.
Finally steps into the spotlight
February 7, 2018
Seagull popped off to give his team a much-needed 3-2 victory against the Shanghai Dragons on Wednesday of Week 5 of the Overwatch League Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Seagull finally shows the strength and power he's known for. Though this was most likely because he got to play Genji instead of some new trick he learned. Surprisingly, EFFECT was not in this series, meaning that Seagull had to take up core DPS duties, which also meant he didn't have to play around EFFECT's picks. Seagull found massive success with Genji on Horizon Lunar Colony. In Round 4, Seagull burned the entirety of Shanghai Dragon's roster with a single dash through their climbed positioning. This game him Dragonblade which allowed him for and easy first point capture and win.
Sticks to only one hero
January 28, 2018
Seagulls made some questionable hero picks in a close 3-2 loss to Boston Uprising on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Seagull, normally known as a strong flex player, only played two heroes this series and one of those heroes was only for one round. Mostly, Seagull just played Junkrat. The pick would be effective on Numbani where Junkrat to burst down Boston Uprising's dive composition thanks to his mines and grenades. But things didn't go smoothly in the following rounds. Boston Uprising figured out they could pinch Dallas Fuel's flanks, forcing Seagull into some very awkward positions where he couldn't get his damage down. Ilios would be the strangest map as Seagull would continually pick Junkrat against Boston's Pharamercy comp, which left him out of the majority of the fighting.
Struggles to make an impact
January 21, 2018
Seagull showed off his deep hero pool in Dallas Fuel's 4-0 loss to the Houston Outlaws but made no difference game to game.
ANALYSIS
Seagull is an excellent flex player, capable of playing any hero required by his team with complete competence. However, he lacks that explosive play making ability found in players like Taimou. Seagull was consistently incapable of sparking a rally, playing on heroes like Hanzo and coming up empty on high impact heroes like Genji.
