Boston Uprising
Just above water
April 20, 2018
Neko held out against the London Spitfire in the Boston Uprising's 3-2 victory on Day 2 of Week 3 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Neko's Zenyatta wasn't nearly as influential as it has been in previous matches. While this should be expected against high-tier teams like the Spitfire, there was a general lack of standout performances from Neko. He kept up with baseline performance, sending his Discord Orbs onto key targets and using his Transcendence to sustain a fight, but he was slightly outshined by London's Zenyatta HaGoPeun. This time around his ability held out, but Neko will need to continue to improve in order to stand confidently above other supports.
A low key savior
April 15, 2018
Neko lifted up the Boston Uprising in their 3-2 victory over the Florida Mayhem on Day 4 of Week 2 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Neko's Zenyatta was a critical factor in the reasoning behind the Uprising's victory. His timing on his Transcendence was a huge influence for this and kept Boston alive even when things looked tragic. At the same time, Neko constantly backed up his team with constant Discord Orbs on high-value targets. With both combined, Neko formed a backbone for the Uprising that allowed them to stand tall against the Mayhem.
Impactful positioning
April 8, 2018
Neko kept the Boston Uprising alive in their 4-0 victory over the Houston Outlaws on Day 4 of Week 1 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Neko's Zenyatta and Mercy were a huge thorn in the side of the Outlaws. Not only were his Discord Orbs on point, but he was incredibly slick as Mercy and was able to maneuver his pursuers. This resulted in fights that were easily won, as the Uprising would either be able to outlive their opponents or focus down weakened targets quickly. If he wasn't already on your radar, Neko may be a support player you want to add to your roster.
Great survivability
March 28, 2018
Neko had solid awareness in a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Gladiators on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Neko did a great job of evading the enemy Tracer and keeping himself alive so that he could help mitigate damage for his team with well-timed Transcendance ultimates for easy kills thanks to multiple Gladiator overextensions. Neko's greatest talent this day would have to be his ability to stay alive so much longer than most other Zenyatta mains.
Crazy good synergy
March 18, 2018
Neko was on point during an eventful 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Valiant on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Neko's Zenyatta far outshined the opposing Zenyatta, played by Unkoe as Neko worked tirelessly in tandem with Gamsu to make huge plays and keep his tank buddy alive. Neko also did very well in avoiding the enemy Tracer, played by the notoriously annoying Soon. Overall Neko's play this week was nothing short of spectacular, and the Uprising are slowly creeping their way up the standings because of it.
Kicks to the face sometimes aren't enough
March 10, 2018
Neko's Zenyatta bravely fought against the London Spitfire on Day 3 in Week 3 of Stage 2 in the OWL during the Boston Uprising's 0-4 loss.
ANALYSIS
Based on today's match, Neko while playing Zenyatta clearly isn't afraid of anything. He picked up kills from both far away with his orbs, or even flanking around the back and kicking his enemies in the face. Despite this confidence, Neko wasn't able to kick down the wall that is the London Spitfire. A Zenyatta can only do so much when a Winston, Tracer, and Genji are dancing around him.
Puts in work with Zenyatta
March 10, 2018
Neko was electric all throughout the Boston Uprising's 4-0 sweep of the Shangahi Dragons on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Neko's Zenyatta was a force to be reckoned with during this lopsided win for the Uprising. What made him most dangerous was that he managed to perform at such a high level both offensively and defensively. He put out a ridiculous amount of damage to rack up kills for his team, while simultaneously keeping his team alive with perfect uses of Transcendence and the other abilities in his kit. It may have just been against the Dragons, but he was no less impressive with his play.
Thrives in new meta
February 24, 2018
Neko had a nice performance despite his team's 4-0 loss against the Philadelphia Fusion on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Neko was clearly ready for the new meta, as his use of Moira and Zenyatta were on point from the jump. Without needing to be pigeonholed into Mercy, Neko was able to shine on some of the more dynamic support heroes, While it was often tough to keep his teammates alive, that was perhaps not all that surprising in the face of Carpe and Eqo's ridiculous amount of pressure.
Dies too much for Uprising to win
February 12, 2018
Neko found himself caught by the Houston Outlaws too many times on Saturday in the Boston Uprising's 3-2 loss.
ANALYSIS
Neko's performance this series, especially at the end, included too many times where he got caught out. One such example is on Lijiang Tower where he was forced to use Zenyatta's Transcendence in order to live. While understandable, that ultimate was crucial in order for the Uprising to win over the Outlaws ultimate advantage. In order for the Uprising to make it into playoffs, let alone win, this issue needs to be fixed.
Provides offensive support
February 3, 2018
Neko cushions his team's assault with stable healing in a 4-0 stomp of the Los Angeles Gladiators on Friday.
ANALYSIS
We should just change Boston Uprising's name to Boston Dives. The team's now patented dive composition utterly dominated the weak set up of the Los Angeles Gladiators. But this was only doable thanks to Neko, who mainly played Zenyatta this series. Skillfully throwing his buffs on debuffs on key targets, Boston was able to move with purpose and without fear. Neko's debuffs were key in allowing Striker and DreamKazper to devastate the backline as Boston's tanks pressured the frontline. The was best seen in Boston's first assault on Numbani where Neko's keen eye tagged up LA's Mercy for an easy kill to snowball a fast map.
Slowly picks up speed
January 27, 2018
Neko found his stride late into the series in a shocking 3-2 win over Dallas Fuel on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Neko struggled quite a bit early in this series. The tank-centered comp Dallas brought out exposed the weaknesses of Boston Uprising's dive strategies, especially in the case of Neko. Playing Zenyatta, most of the time, on both Numbani and Temple of Anubis, he was often left exposed or would overextend as his teammates attempted to pop Dallas Fuel's backline. It wasn't until Boston switched up their strategies with their dive line-up that things would change. Neko kept his team up through thick-and-thin as DreamKazper and Striker pinched Dallas Fuel's flanks instead of their backline. On top of the healing, Neko would debuff key DPS targets for Striker and DreamKazper to smash. Then, in a final battle, Neko provided two game-winning kills on Lijiang Tower that clutched the series.
