Boston Uprising
USA
Streches himself thin
July 14, 2018
Kellex gets easily picked off in a double series loss to the Philadelphia Fusion, winning the first series 3-1 and losing the second series 3-1.
ANALYSIS
Boston's support problem that has plagued them this series only continued in their final playoff series. Key support player, Kellex, simply struggled to stay alive for a variety of reasons. While he would do well in the first series, thanks to Boston's DPS slaying out, he utterly fell apart in the second series. In the second series, Boston attempted to run a triple-DPS composition in order to counter the Fusion's aggression. However, this left Kellex as the team's only healer on maps like Hanamura and Eichenwalde. He would have to fly around the map in order to keep his teammates up, but this also left him heavily exposed. As a result, the Fusion was able to easily pick off Kellex early in teamfights, leaving Boston without a healer.
Tries to carry his team through a long series
July 14, 2018
Mistakes was forced to lead in a loss to the Philadelphia Fusion on a back-to-back series, winning the first series 3-1 and losing the second series 3-1.
ANALYSIS
Mistakes' Hanzo was key in the Boston Uprising's plans in this series. But with the entirety of Boston's hopes placed on his shoulders, Mistakes couldn't carry his team through eight grueling maps. He was essential in the first series, slaying out on Junkertown, Lijiang Tower, and Hanamura. On Junkertown and Lijiang Tower, Mistakes was able to take control of the maps thanks to his Hanzo finding clean picks. On Hanamura, Mistake's Tracer was able to sneak onto the point and steal the map from his enemy. Mistakes, however, wasn't able to keep his pace up into the second series. Eight grueling maps in a row was simply too much for Mistakes.
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
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.
Respawn room regular
July 14, 2018
Kellex spent a majority of his time dead or re-spawning during the Boston Uprising's 3-1 playoff series loss to the Philadelphia Fusion.
ANALYSIS
Kellex spent a majority of the series on Mercy and while the main support for the Uprising is usually a potent healer, he was heavily targeted and largely unprotected in Boston's dive composition. Kellex would try to fly to Gamsu's aid on the initial jump in, but was usually caught out and eliminated before he could get into a safe position, leaving the Uprising down a man most of the match.
