Boston Uprising
Falls flat in playoff match
July 14, 2018
NotE, usually a consistent anchor for the Boston Uprising fell flat in the teams 3-1 playoff series loss to the Philadelphia Fusion.
ANALYSIS
NotE spent the entire match playing D.Va, a hero that he has mastered by all accounts, but he was not prepared for the Uprising to be completely shut down. NotE was indecisive about his course of action, unsure whether to stay with his back line and try to keep them alive or to follow Gamsu into the thick of the fight to protect his main tank and hope that the support could make their way through alone. NotE simply could not win no matter what decision he made and with no strategical recourse the Uprising were crushed under heel by the Fusion in the first playoff series between the two teams.
Dives continue to miss their mark
June 9, 2018
NotE repeatedly failed to disrupt the San Francisco Shock in a 3-1 loss for the Boston Uprising on Day 3 of Week 3 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE's D.Va, previously one of the best, is making steps towards being an optimal playstyle in this new meta. However, it's clear NotE is having trouble coordinating effectively with Gamsu in most engagements. Typically, NotE is fighting a completely separate fight, which weakens the entirety of the Uprising frontline. Hopefully they can fix this issue before playoffs catch up to them.
Defanged killer
May 20, 2018
NotE seems to have lost his bite in the Boston Uprising's 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion on Day 2 of Week 1 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Neko's D.Va was one of the most aggressive in the League, with him constantly diving and picking up eliminations. After losing to New York, however, NotE seems to be having trouble making the same level of impact. In this new meta, NotE can't be as nearly as aggressive as he was with Brigitte being able to easily punish divers. NotE will need to rethink his playstyle and shift accordingly, to have a major impact on matches to come.
Greatest strength became greatest weakness
May 7, 2018
NotE failed to make an impact on the Boston Uprising's 3-0 loss against the New York Excelsior in the Stage 3 Finals for the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE's D.Va has always been commended for its aggression, but New York took this supposed strength and turned it into a weakness. In the moments when NotE dived in, the Excelsior charged into the hole left behind and take out one or more members. Rather than being able to get a pick and give the Uprising an advantage, this exchange typically ended with them on the back foot. It looked like NotE was trying to use the same tactic he had used on Stage, and this failure shows a potential weakness in the Uprising's ability to adapt.
Too much to handle
May 7, 2018
NotE was the backbone of the Boston Uprising in a 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Gladiators in the first round of the Playoffs in Stage 3.
ANALYSIS
NotE is known for his aggression on D.Va, and he didn't disappoint against the Gladiators. NotE was constantly jumping from front line to backline, responding to targets, and taking out flankers. He displayed a methodical approach to D.Va that overwhelmed anything the Gladiators tried to counter with.
Low-key god among D.Va players
May 4, 2018
NotE continues to excel as the Boston Uprising take a 3-2 victory of the Los Angeles Valiant on Day 2 of Week 5 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE's D.Va play has been commended time and again, but he still continues to build upon his skillset. In this match, it was clear as day how much he impacts a game from defending key players, responding to dives, and leading engagements. NotE is able to seamlessly transition from one state to the other in order to conform with the Uprising's current objective. It's exciting to see which part of his playstyle he'll improve upon next.
Mercilessly destruction
April 29, 2018
NotE constantly eliminated the Dallas Fuel in a 4-0 victory for the Boston Uprising on Day 3 of Week 4 in Stage 3 for the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE's D.Va play continues to excel, and he certainly didn't pull his punches against the Dallas Fuel. He took full advantage of Fuel's poor positioning, allowing him to pick up multiple kills with several Self Destructs. Such an event tends to be a rare occurrence, and it happening so much this match shows NotE knows how to make the most out of D.Va.
Immense foresight
April 20, 2018
NotE negated the London Spitfire's aggression in a 3-2 victory for the Boston Uprising on Day 2 of Week 3 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE's D.Va stood tall against the formidable London Spitfire, and was a crucial factor in the Uprising's victory. On Anubis, with Profit's Tracer approaching from behind, NotE was able to do an insane 360 Defense Matrix to reject a Pulse Bomb. It was moments like this that showcased NotE's deep instincts, and demonstrated how much of an asset he is for Boston. He's definitely proving himself to be a top candidate on the professional D.Va rank ladder.
Devastating Self-Destructs
April 15, 2018
NotE smashed the Florida Mayhem in a 3-2 victory for the Boston Uprising on Day 4 of Week 2 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE's D.Va is typically on point, but today he went above and beyond with the use of her Self-Destruct ability. Several times, NotE got just the right trajectory to eliminate 2-3 instantly. Additionally, when he pulled off this feat, it was the key difference between the Uprising winning and losing the fight. It's no surprise, then, that NotE walked away from the match with the MVP title. Without this D.Va legend, the Uprising might not have walked away the victors.
Continues to influence the battlefield
April 13, 2018
NotE disrupted the New York Excelsior in the Boston Uprising's 3-2 victory on Day 2 of Week 2 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE's D.Va continued to be an influential force on the side of the Uprising. His timing was particularly on point, and constantly disrupted New York's setup. Despite occasionally losing his tank buddy, Gamsu, NotE managed to stay alive long enough to regroup. This is immensely impressive against a team like Excelsior, who punish nearly every misplay. The fact that NotE survived shows he has a deep understanding of the boundaries around D.Va.
Superb reactionary play
April 8, 2018
NotE was constantly in the right position in the Boston Uprising's 4-0 victory over the Houston Outlaws on Day 4 of Week 1 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE's D.Va play was incredibly on point throughout the match against the Outlaws. Whether it was punishing flankers, defending the team, or supporting a push, NotE had great situational awareness. He used this to great effect, thwarting several of Houston's engages while properly reacting to threats in Boston's backline. NotE's D.Va looks to be much improved since Stage 2, and it'll be worth watching him develop going forward.
Not the usual NotE
March 18, 2018
NotE was not his usual self in a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Valiant on Friday.
ANALYSIS
With Gamsu getting back in the lineup and constantly improving and NotE seemingly taking a step back from his usual all-star D.Va play, he is clearly being overshadowed. NotE was still quite skilled at keeping himself alive, but his Ultimates were not as impactful as they typically are and he was not making too many big DPS plays, something he is known for doing even as a tank player thanks to D.Va's extremely high burst damage in the right hands. NotE is a great player, but he seems to have taken a step back.
Inconsistency doesn't cut it
March 10, 2018
NotE had moments of greatness against the London Spitfire in the Boston Uprising's 4-0 loss on Day 3 in Week 3 of Stage 2 in the OWL.
ANALYSIS
NotE is nigh permanently the Boston Uprising's D.Va player, and clearly looks comfortable on the hero. He darted around the map, protecting his supports one moment and then annoyingly being in the London's face the next. At the same time, NotE routinely found himself alone against the Spitfire squad and lost his life. At best this only meant NotE died, but a team as good as London will always utilize this as an opportunity to jump on a backline. Thus, NotE's recklessness was a crucial reason Boston lost key fights this match.
Sits behind as a tank
March 2, 2018
NotE failed to protect himself or his team in a 4-0 stomp by New York Excelsior on Thursday of the Overwatch League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Even though NotE stuck his favorite of D.Va, he wasn't much help to his teammates. This was mainly because Boston played an uncharacteristically slow game. Instead of making constant pushes onto objectives or dives onto heroes, NotE and Boston would sit back and attempt to find picks. Because of this, NotE struggled to get much of anything done for his team as New York took advantages in every fight. He mainly sat back and tried to protect his backline, but he often had to assist Gamsu as his team failed to find picks. The only round where NotE found success was when he stacked a triple tank composition, which allowed him to dive onto New York without fearing he would expose his team's support.
Falls just short
February 12, 2018
NotE failed to levy the necessary pressure against the Houston Outlaws in the Boston Uprising's3-2 loss Saturday.
ANALYSIS
NotE's performance this game was surprisingly underwhelming in the second half. While his gameplay looked strong at first, especially his D.Va, by the end it seemed too presumptuous. Engagements became slightly sloppy and a little desperate, which is all a team like the Outlaws needs. This may be due to stage fright, with the pressure of this match, and so in later stages, this should be expected to fall. However, this time it contributed to the Uprising losing the match.
