Becomes a nuisance for his opponent
July 21, 2018
Carpe constantly harassed his opponents in a 3-2 win over the New York Excelsior on Saturday in the Overwatch League Semifinals.
ANALYSIS
Carpe's Widowmaker and Tracer dominated the series thanks to his team's absurd aggression. Laying down damage from afar, Carpe's Widowmaker was able to constantly pressure New York with ease. Carpe may not have been able to slay out, but he was able to provide key damage to shutdown his opponents. For example, on King's Row Carpe rolled right through New York's defense during his attack round by pushing out to hit flanks and spawns after every kill. This would put New York into awkward and unfavorable positions they couldn't coordinate with. Carpe rarely had to switch off of Widowmaker to Tracer, only doing so to challenge Pine on Lijiang Tower.
Destroys opponents
July 19, 2018
Carpe looked absolutely clean in 3-0 victory over the New York Excelsior in Semifinals playoff on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The biggest threat for the Excelsior was Saebyeolbe, but Carpe outplayed him in the Widowmaker aspect, rendering him useless in the beginning and end of the series. He also played Brigitte to great effect that threw New York into chaos and showed off his versatility.
Gets the breathing room needed against Boston
July 14, 2018
Carpe got plenty of clean looks thanks to his teammates in the Philadelphia Fusion's 3-1 playoff series win over the Boston Uprising.
ANALYSIS
Carpe didn't have to carry the team in the playoffs, as he did so many times during the regular season, thanks to plenty of help from Eqo and HOTBA. The Fusion ran some unexpected team compositions including quad-tank and quad-DPS to keep eyes off of Carpe and allow the sharpshooter free run of the battlefield.
Joins all-Korean starting roster for Atlantic Division
June 26, 2018
Carpe was voted to the starting roster of the Atlantic Division at this year's All-Star Game, Blizzard has revealed.
ANALYSIS
Good luck going up against this team, Pacific Division. Carpe, Gesture, and the Excelsior quartet of ArK, Pine, Saebyeolble, and JJoNak will make up the starting roster for the Atlantic Division All-Star team. Without even seeing the other 12 players that will join these six, we know that the Atlantic Division is surely going into the All-Star Game as heavy favorites.
Looks clean in huge win
June 10, 2018
Carpe looked looser than ever in a 3-2 reverse sweep of the Seoul Dynasty on Friday.
ANALYSIS
While Carpe was shouldering the vast majority of the load for the Fusion in the absence of Eqo, he looked to be in much better spirits now that his DPS partner was back in action. Playing everything from Tracer to Widowmaker and even Zarya, Carpe was feeling his game during this series. It certainly wasn't easy, as they had to overcome a 2-0 deficit, but they still stood tall when it mattered most to come away with the win and keep playoff hopes alive.
Falters in tough loss
May 31, 2018
Carpe couldn't work his usual magic in a 4-0 loss to the New York Excelsior on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Without the help of Eqo, who sat out with a wrist injury, the brunt of the DPS load fell on Carpe's shoulders. It turned out to be far too much, as he just couldn't keep his team afloat throughout this series. Especially troubling was the fact that he was frequently outdueled by Pine, which left the Fusion high and dry every time. He's going to need someone else to step up as Stage 4 draws on or this team could slip outside the playoffs altogether.
Needs some help
May 28, 2018
Carpe couldn't carry the Philadelphia Fusion on his own in a 3-1 loss to the Dallas Fuel on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Try as he might, Carpe simply can't shoulder the load for this team without help. While the entire team had looked solid enough during the first week of Stage 4, but against the Fuel, they looked hapless. Carpe did what he could with Widowmaker and Hanzo, but it wasn't enough. Any headway that they made often hinged on his landing big ultimates, but Dallas was just too much for this team to handle. He even tried to play Brigitte to stop Mickie, but the Dallas off tank was popping off ridiculous and ultimately did the Fusion in.
Good old reliable in Fusion win
May 19, 2018
Carpe was once again on top of his game during the Fusion's 3-1 win over the Boston Uprising on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
In what was hardly a surprise, Carpe was the lifeblood of this Fusion team during their upset win over the Uprising. While the Fusion are certainly no slouches, few could have guessed that they would show up and play this well against the formidable Boston squad. Carpe's incredibly deep hero pool was a huge part of the win, as he was constantly forcing Boston into team compositions that they were clearly not comfortable with. He was consistently winning the Widowmaker duel with Mistakes, which led to one of his best plays of the season by far. With more than half of his team wiped on Lijiang Tower, all hope looked lost for the Fusion. Carpe refused to back down, however, picking up three ridiculous Widowmaker headshots to singlehandedly bring secure the point and wrap up the 2-0 sweep on the map. The Fusion could certainly find themselves back in the Stage playoffs if this is what they'll be getting from Carpe on a nightly basis.
Continues to carry this team
April 28, 2018
Carpe was huge despite the 3-2 loss against the Seoul Dynasty on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Philadelphia might have lost t his game, but it wasn't for a lack of effort from Carpe. His Tracer continues to be one of the best in the League as he lit up the competition all night. He always seems to know when to dive deep and when to peel, which always gives the Fusion a shot at a win. While they fell just short of a win this time around, you can just never count them out in any given match.
Does it all for Philadelphia
April 13, 2018
Carpe was a monumental part of why the Fusion managed to win this 3-2 series against the Houston Outlaws on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Without Eqo in the lineup, it was time for Carpe to return to his Stage 1 ways of putting the team on his back to bring home wins. Against the Outlaws, he was superb once more and managed to snatch away another razor-thin 3-2 win over their newfound rivals. Whether he was on McCree, Widowmaker, or even Zarya, he did it all. His Widow, in particular, was a highlight as he clicked on heads with impressive ease on Ilios to give the Fusion a 2-0 win on the map going into Junkertown. As long as Carpe is there with the possibility of being a one-man wrecking ball, the Fusion always have a shot at victory.
Lights it up in loss
April 6, 2018
Carpe was his normal self in a 3-2 loss to the Boston Uprising on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Carpe might have come out the gate a bit slow in this series, but he was back in gear as the night progressed. Whether he was on Tracer or Sombra, he was doing the most for his team. With Eqo out on suspension, a lot of the burden certainly fell on his shoulders and he rose to the occasion as well as could be expected. He put the team on his back all throughout this one and was one of the only reasons that they even managed to get to a fifth map. He was especially ridiculous on Blizzard World where he tallied nine final blows, 19 eliminations, 18 enemies hacked, and just one death on the Fusion's attack side. With such a strong performance, it's a shame that they couldn't pick up the win. Nonetheless, this team should be perfectly fine once the full roster is back in action.
Stellar Tracer play almost brings home the win
March 26, 2018
Carpe's endurance failed him at the end of a long playoffs run, contributing to the 3-2 loss against the New York Excelsior in the Stage 2 Finals loss.
ANALYSIS
Going all 10 games (5 games in the semis against the London Spitfire then 5 games against New York Excelsior), Eqo went from suburb to sloppy, which isn't a surprise when you consider how high stakes these games were to begin with. His Widowmaker was an absolute fiend for the entire day though. Fusion definitely couldn't make it this far without him and he's definitely in contention for one of the best DPS in the league.
Still the life blood of Philadelphia
March 10, 2018
Carpe was solid even in the Philadelphia Fusion's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the New York Excelsior on Friday.
ANALYSIS
While the Fusion may not have won this series, Carpe made sure that they didn't go down without a fight. He was on top of his game once again, carving up the Excelsior with his Tracer. With every map being within a single point, all it would have taken was a one teamfight win to flip the series. Even though that didn't end up happening here, you can bet that Carpe will be prepared should these teams meet again in the playoffs.
Tag teams with Eqo in wing
February 24, 2018
Carpe cut the Boston Uprising down with reckless abandon in the Philadelphia Fusion's 4-0 win on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
While things started off a bit rough for Carpe as he was losing the early Tracer duels to Striker on Hanamura. Thankfully for him, Eqo picked up the slack to take that map before Carpe found his groove starting on LIjiang Tower. It was Hollywood, though, where he'd have his best moment of the match. Carpe switched to Widowmaker while Philadelphia was pushing for the final point and he absolutely lit up the Uprising to the tune of a whopping six kills in a span of 30 seconds. With him and Eqo playing so strong, Boston had no way of breaking into the series as the Fusion waltzed to a win.
Swift shots secure the win
February 10, 2018
Carpe devastated Florida Mayhem with smooth shots in a narrow 3-2 win on Saturday, Week 5 of the Overwatch League Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Carpe continued to be the key player of Philadelphia Fusion. Well, him and ShaDowBurn. Carpe did struggle at points in this series due to some misguided plays in Horizon Lunar Colony and Oasis. On Horizon Lunar Colony, for example, Carpe was reluctant to engage Florida Mayhem due to Mayhem's reliance on Sombra. Because of this, Carpe sat far back from the action where he was unable to truly engage in fights. When he played more aggressively, such as in Junkertown, he shined. His slick Widowmaker shots on Fusion's Junkertown offense clutched him a triple kill that swiftly forced a Game 5.
