Boston Uprising
Slowly slows down in a double-series
July 14, 2018
Striker fell apart in a long double series loss to the Philadelphia Fusion, winning the first series 3-1 and losing the second series 3-1.
Striker came out of the gates gunning, but over the course of the back-to-back, he slowed to a crawl as he played eight intense maps in a row. He excelled in the first series thanks to his sneaky DPS playstyle. On King's Row, Striker's Tracer was constantly harassing flanks as he pulled long wraps through the map's intricate tunnels. However, Striker failed to repeat his successes in the second series. Exhaustion set in on the entirety of the Boston Uprising as Philadelphia was able to cycle out players. Striker was unable to adjust to his opponent's versatility until he ran out of steam in the second series' Hanamura.
A lethal component once again
June 15, 2018
Striker pummeled the New York Excelsior in a 3-1 victory for the Boston Uprising on Day 2 of Week 5 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
Striker continued to demand respect, even against the juggernaut that is the Excelsior. He was laser focused on target prioritization and regularly took out New York players in quick succession. Things are looking up for Striker right at the end of the stage, when it matters most.
Unchallenged from the beginning
June 9, 2018
Striker struck down the Shanghai Dragons in a 4-0 victory for the Boston Uprising on Day 3 of Week 4 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
Striker relentlessly pummeled the Dragons, no matter the map or hero. From Widowmaker to Junkrat, Striker showed once again why he can strike fear into any DPS player. While this is nice to see, at the same time Striker had a ton of room to work with. It's reassuring that, when able, Striker can make the most out of every situation, but in the playoffs, he might not be as fortunate.
Can only do so much damage
June 9, 2018
Striker tried to keep the Boston Uprising afloat in a 3-1 loss against the San Francisco Shock on Day 3 of Week 3 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
Striker continues to dominate mechanically, but just one man can only do so much on his own. Even if he can achieve moments of blinding lethality, it means nothing if the Uprising fail to come out on top. The coordination between this star DPS player and the rest of the team is still lacking and needs to be tightened up for playoffs to be anything but trouble for Boston.
Couldn't seem to find an opening
June 2, 2018
Striker wasn't able to get the kills the Boston Uprising needed in their 3-2 loss against the Los Angeles Valiant on Day 3 of Week 2 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
Striker has been valiantly attempting to figure out a way to have an impact on DPS. Despite the effort, he still isn't able to have a consistent impact with his typical heroes, Tracer and Junkrat. While part of it is adapting to the new meta, there are bigger issues that seem to be brewing from coordination with his team to being able to get value out of his Pulse Bombs and RIP-Tires. As this struggle persists, it's starting to look scary for the team in terms of getting into the playoffs.
Persistence till the bitter end
May 20, 2018
Striker attempted to outlast the Houston Outlaws in a 3-1 loss for the Boston Uprising on Day 3 of Week 1 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
Striker has always been one of the top tier Tracer talents in the OWL, but in Stage 4 this, unfortunately, has become a great weakness. Tracer, as a hero, is all but nullified with the prevalence of Brigitte, and Striker looked to persistently try to make it work. This hurdle is a big one for both Striker and Boston as a whole, but how Striker learns to adapt and overcome will be incredibly important for his development as a player.
No quarter given
May 7, 2018
Striker pummeled the Los Angeles Gladiators in a 3-0 victory for the Boston Uprising in the first round of Playoffs in Stage 3.
Striker's Tracer relentlessly engaged the Gladiator's backline, to the point where several members had to be put on guard duty. However, this didn't even slow Striker down as he continually popped up where the Gladiators were the weakest. Being able to survive against multiple opponents is one thing, but adding team coordination and several locations on top show how good of a Tracer Striker has.
Fierce aggression
May 7, 2018
Striker exploited the weaknesses of the Los Angeles Gladiators in a 3-1 for the Boston Uprising on Friday.
Striker continued to dominate as Tracer against the Gladiators. He would systematically harass their backline to put the Uprising in the most optimal positioning. Combined with Gamsu's Winston, Striker led Boston to a strong 3-1 victory but showed weakness in his ability to pick up eliminations on control point maps.
Full respect and no quarter given
April 29, 2018
Striker decimated the Dallas Fuel in the Boston Uprising's 4-0 victory on Day 3 of Week 4 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
Striker made sure to come at Dallas Fuel with his all and didn't underestimate his opponent one bit. With the Fuel being so full of holes, it'd be easy to slip back into relaxation and not play at one's best. Striker showed that he's mastered his assumptions, and came at Dallas with his full strength by getting right up into their backline. He showed no hesitation in ripping apart HarryHook and Unkoe, and secured the Uprising's 4-0 score.
Impactful even against the greats
April 21, 2018
Striker reinforced the Boston Uprising in a 2-1 victory over the Seoul Dynasty on Day 3 of Week 3 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
Striker's Tracer play is among the best of the League, but this match he also showed his Junkrat is nothing to scoff at. Being able to easily switch between these two heroes, and still have such a huge impact on a match, is an indication of pure talent. It's even more impressive when you realize this is up against the team that was touted to be the best in the League. Despite what anyone may believe, Striker is among the top DPS players without a doubt.
Dashingly lethal
April 20, 2018
Striker was a crucial asset for the Boston Uprising in their 3-2 victory over the London Spitfire on Day 2 of Week 3 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
Striker's Tracer play continues to be top notch among the league. This match he flexed his strategic muscles, engaging only when safe to do so and returning alive with his life. Striker consistently shredded through London support Closer's Mercy, taking away a key source of healing in teamfights. If Striker isn't on your list already, you've been living under a rock.
Constant aggression
April 15, 2018
Striker was constantly disrupting the Florida Mayhem in the Boston Uprising's 3-2 victory on Day 4 of Week 2 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
Whether it was on Junkrat or Striker, Striker continued to show how much power he brings to the Uprising. Constantly, Striker would be on the backline as Tracer coordinating to have as much impact as possible. If that didn't work, he would switch up to fit the needs of the team near instantly. Striker continues to be a premiere DPS player within the OWL and shows no sign of being a disappointment.
Deadly Tracer play
April 6, 2018
Striker put overwhelming pressure onto the Philadelphia Fusion in the Boston Uprising's 3-2 victory on Day 1 of Week 1 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
Striker's Tracer play immediately took off going up against the Fusion. At every available moment, Striker would aim to find his way to Philadelphia's supports and instantly start damaging them. Even if he didn't get a kill, this tactic allowed Gamsu's Winston and DreamKazper's Widowmaker to work their respective magic. Striker has already been a solid Tracer player, and this increased coordination is a welcome addition to his skill set.
Ridiculously good Tracer
March 28, 2018
Striker was amazing in a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Gladiators on Saturday.
Striker proves once again that his Tracer deserves to be in talks for one of the best, if not the best in the Overwatch League. All throughout the five-match series, Striker could be seen darting in and out of the backline at just the right time to abuse the poor Gladiators Zenyatta players, or score a quick one-clip frag on an unsuspecting Mercy. Striker really is in a league of his own.
Excellent Tracer play
March 18, 2018
Striker was a madman in a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Valiant on Friday.
Striker was an absolute beast on Tracer throughout the five-game series against the Los Angeles Valiant. Not only did he mercilessly hunt down both supports, he also managed to outfox the opposing Tracer many times, giving his team the advantage in the process. Striker's play this series was absolutely a step in the right direction for Boston and should he continue with this level of success, Boston will find themselves in a good spot come Stage 3.
