Boston Uprising
USA
Unable to sway the tide
May 7, 2018
Neko valiantly supported the Boston Uprising in it 3-0 loss to the New York Excelsior in the Stage 3 Finals.
ANALYSIS
Usually, Neko is able to have a great impact on the game due to the lethality he embodies with Zenyatta. However, New York is the home of JjoNaK, the aggressive Zenyatta, and was not afraid to get right in Neko's face at all. Neko was unable to adapt to this new situation, and couldn't have as much influence on the match as he usually does. Coming from the second team in the Stage standings, this shows a hole in their strategy: a weakness in adapting to the situation at hand.
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.
Not enough pressure
May 7, 2018
Mistakes failed to keep the heat on the New York Excelsior in a 3-0 loss for the Boston Uprising in the Stage 3 Finals.
ANALYSIS
While keeping pace, Mistakes failed to apply the pressure required to influence the outcome of the match. Losing Widowmaker battles and struggling to secure eliminations won't cut it in the Finals. Against New York, a team needs to constantly keep the key players in check and change up accordingly. Mistakes was unable to adapt fast enough to the overwhelming might that is the Excelsior.
Discord devastation
May 7, 2018
Neko weakened the Los Angeles Gladiators in a 3-0 victory for the Boston Uprising in the first round of the Playoffs in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Neko's Zenyatta had a monumental impact on every teamfight, from Discord Orbs to Transcendence. Not only did he show off his game sense, Discording key targets as they were being shot, but he was quick to respond to low health teammates with a Harmony Orb or Transcendence. Meanwhile, he was constantly putting pressure on the Gladiators from far away and would take out key targets if they got too confident. Neko's Zenyatta should not be trifled with.
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
