Roams to lock lanes
August 19, 2018
ZooMa got cut down in a 3-1 loss to Team Kaliber, getting knocked out of the tournament and placing 3rd, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ZooMa ran a gauntlet through the Losers Bracket, but it all ended when he went up against Team Kaliber. FaZe Clan's scrappy and chaotic playstyle was a poor fit against Team Kaliber's similar playstyle, especially as ZooMa's opponents began to warm up. Round 1 Hardpoint was ZooMa's most successful round as he was able shutdown Team Kaliber's roaming with his flanks. Round 3 Capture the Flag unfolded in a similar fashion as ZooMa was able to rush through lanes to cause problems for his opponents and creating an opening for his team. But once Team Kaliber focused their shots, ZooMa couldn't roam freely anymore.
Thrives in a scrappy series
August 18, 2018
ZooMa flanked his way to a win in a 3-1 win over Team Sween on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ZooMa ran around the map causing his typical chaos that dominates the FaZe Clan playstyle. ZooMa's harassment, however, had some pros and cons. In Round 1 Harpdoint, for example, ZooMa's flanks caused FaZe Clan to ignore spawn rotations, allowing Team Sween to create an incredibly close game. But when ZooMa was on point, such as in Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint, Team Sween barely ever got a chance to stabilize,
Crashes after hot start
August 17, 2018
ZooMa crashed after an excellent start to the reverse sweep loss to Team EnVyUs, as FaZe Clan dropped to the loser's bracket on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ZooMa started off hot with two great rounds, and quickly faltered after that. Round 1 Hardpoint saw ZooMa put together a strong slaying performance, netting 26 kills, good for second in the lobby. He and Attach did the heavy slaying, while Priestah and Replays had a ton of Hardpoint time (though Priestah chipped in with quite a few kills). It was a well-oiled machine, and was a machine that Team EnVyUs did not know how to handle. ZooMa and Classic were the two most consistent players on FaZe Clan in their Round 2 Search & Destroy win, as the duo paced them, and Replays and Priestah gave them varying levels of support throughout the 6-3 win. Just like the first round, they were a buzzsaw, and Team EnVyUs could not get out. ZooMa fell off once Team EnVyUs started winning though, as he went 17/22 in Round 3 Capture the Flag, 28/31 in Round 4 Hardpoint, and was easily the worst FaZe Clan player in Round 5 Search & Destroy. He simply could not keep up with Team EnVyUs once they found their footing and went on their reverse sweep.
Flies out the gates
August 15, 2018
ZooMa put his best round in right away in the 3-1 win over compLexity Gaming on Day 1 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ZooMa's best round came right at the beginning of this win, in Round 1 Hardpoint. He was their most consistent player in the win, even in the early going as compLexity really dominated the map and seemed poised to take the first round of the round. ZooMa kept them afloat early, and led them late, putting a lobby leading 37 kills on the board, and a solid 1:02 on the objective, in the win. The rest of his performance was much more of a support role rather than a leading role, helping support Replays in his dominating showings in their two other round wins, Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 4 Hardpoint. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a tough 3-2 loss for them, and ZooMa hard a hard time pushing the offense in the loss.
Struggled with inconsistencies
July 7, 2018
ZooMa struggled with inconsistencies quite a bit in the 3-2 win over Team Kaliber on Day 3, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ZooMa had a hot start to open Round 1 Hardpoint, as he was the key man for FaZe in the back and forth round. The round stayed close - FaZe lost 250-217 - but ZooMa faltered a bit as the round went on, and he ended the round with a 27/28 KD for it. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a similar story - he came out of the gate flying, but he ended up fading down the stretch. This time, however, Priestah picked him up and they won the round in 11 games. Round 3 Capture the Flag was the most lopsided of any round, as they won 7-2. They dominated that one from the get-go, and ZooMa's 22 kills and one flag cap were an important part of that. Round 4 Hardpoint looked like an easy FaZe win, as they led 150-70 and were dominating the kill feed, but they blew the lead to lose 250-202. ZooMa struggled to finish that one off, going 27/31 in the loss. He came to play in Round 5 Search & Destroy though, as he, Priestah, and Attach were a potent three-man attack that led them to a 6-4 win.
Strong performance throughout sweep
July 6, 2018
ZooMa was excellent in each round of the sweep win over Echo Fox on Day 2, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ZooMa got off to a hot start, as he and Attach paced FaZe Clan to their early 70 point lead in Round 1 Hardpoint. The duo paced FaZe for the rest of the round as well, and ZooMa ended up with a lobby-leading 28 kills. He also added a whopping 1:58 on the objective (also a lobby-leading number), putting together an impressive two-way performance. He was one of the key contributors to the comeback win in Round 2 Search & Destroy. They went down 5-3, but he and Attach paced them to an 11-game win. ZooMa had the final kill in that decisive Game 11, finishing off a solid round. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him get both of their flag caps, and net a solid 19 kills in the round. He put together a solid two-way game again, playing staunch defense and aggressive offense.
Support role in win
June 28, 2018
ZooMa played well, but was more in the background of the sweep win over Splyce on Day 2, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ZooMa absolutely contributed to this win, though he did so in more of a support role. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him die quite often (he actually led the lobby with 36 deaths), though he added 32 kills and 57 on the objective. He was ultra-aggressive, and that aggression did help his teammates have a more space on the map. He put in a strong support performance in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as Priestah led the charge in the 6-1 win. Round 3 Capture the Flag was their second consecutive 6-1 win, and ZooMa helped in a support role. He went 16/16, with one flag cap; his biggest contributions came as a solid and reliable defender.
Solid second round is the highlight of the loss
June 27, 2018
ZooMa struggled outside of round two in the 3-1 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 1, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Round 2 Search & Destroy saw ZooMa put together his best performance. He and Priestah were dominant, especially early on, and it put FaZe Clan in the driver's seat in the round. Unlike the rest of the match, FaZe Clan actually was in control and dictated the tone for the majority of the Search & Destroy round. It was the only round they would win, and ZooMa was a big part of it. Despite his strong Search & Destroy showing, his performance in the respawn rounds were wrought with inconsistencies. He had his moments, like his big push in Round 4 Hardpoint to get them rather close, but he often lost those moments quickly. He was never able to put together a consistent performance outside of Search & Destroy, as Team EnVyUs really controlled the pace of play in this match.
Three good, one bad, rounds in loss
June 16, 2018
ZooMa was good for three of the four rounds of the 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ZooMa did a lot of good in this match despite it being a losing effort. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him be a key part of the comeback as Red Reserve sat at the 209 mark, and even got them within striking distance of a win (though they could not pull out a victory). He went 33/30 with 41 seconds in the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a similarly close round, as they lost in 11 games. ZooMa was a key reason why it even got there, as he had double-digit kills and four first bloods. Without him giving FaZe Clan map control on multiple occasions, they may have fallen before game eleven. Round 3 Capture the Flag was their sole round win, and ZooMa's slaying helped keep them alive. His 24 kills led the lobby, and he was the main reason why Red Reserve's offense had problems breaking through the FaZe Clan defenses in the 3-2 win. He ran out of gas in Round 4 Hardpoint, however, especially after Zer0 went on his run. He went 27/40, putting a sour end on a good match for ZooMa (on an individual level).
Fails to engage with team
May 24, 2018
ZooMa attempted to flank a win in a 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ZooMa may only have one tactic, which is flanking, but it's an amazing tactic in his hands. Unfortunately, the rest of his team failed to take advantage In Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag, ZooMa was excellent at opening points in the map with his flanking. This allowed him to steal points in both rounds and steal a win in Round 1 Hardpoint. The only problem with ZooMa's flanks was that it had the tendency to overlook objective control, such as in Round 4 Hardpoint.
Paced FaZe Clan to sweep win
May 23, 2018
ZooMa had an excellent showing in the sweep win over Echo Fox on Day 1, Week 2 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ZooMa easily was the best player for FaZe Clan in their sweep win. He did not have a down round, slaying well in all three of them. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him run out to a hot start and never slow down, notching 40 kills in the round. He led the lobby in kills, and constantly allowed FaZe Clan to keep their grip on the map and the Hardpoint. He did the same in Round 2 Search & Destroy, leading FaZe Clan to a very easy 6-1 win. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him be the only player on FaZe Clan to stand out, going 26/16 in the round. He was the only one to have a positive KD in the round, with the second-best KD on FaZe Clan was Priestah, going 21/21. He was their best player, dominating the sweep win from start to finish.
Two great rounds in loss
May 17, 2018
ZooMa had two great rounds in the 3-1 loss to Evil Geniuses on Day 2 of Week 1 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ZooMa was excellent in the first two rounds of this loss. He was all over the map in Round 1 Hardpoint, and was constantly pushing forward for FaZe. For long stretches of the round, especially early, he was the best player on FaZe. He led his team in kills with 33, but also died 35 times, which speaks to his incredibly aggressive style of play, and also how strong Evil Geniuses' slaying was. He continued his excellent display in Round 2 Search & Destroy. He was impressive from the beginning of the round much like the previous one. He was the only one to play well during the nine-kill streak by Assault that won Evil Geniuses Games 4 through 6, and helped pace them as they came back from that to win the round, their only round win of the match. The final two rounds, however, saw him struggle a little. He went 17/20 in Round 3 Capture the Flag, after being the only player on FaZe Clan to finish with a positive KD in the first half. He went 23/26 in Round 4 Hardpoint, with just 33 seconds on the hill. He limped to the finish line in this one, though he certainly played well in the first two rounds.
Remaining on FaZe Clan
May 3, 2018
ZooMa will remain on FaZe Clan, his teammate Attach relayed on Wednesday.
It's all but expected OpTic Gaming will change their roster, with the latest rumors suggesting both Scump and Crimsix will remain on the team, while FormaL and Karma are expected to part ways. Who takes over the other two spots on OG has been a contentious point of conversation in the Call of Duty community as of late, with multiple rumors suggesting longtime FaZe Clan slayer ZooMa may look to team with the Green Wall duo. However, that appears to have been shot down according to Attach, who confirmed the roster would not be making any changes prior to May 7, when rosters must be officially confirmed. It's a telling remark, given the Stage 1 champions have struggled at times throughout the competitive season, and save for the aforementioned Stage 1 Championships, haven't seemed like one of the best teams in the world. They should benefit from what is expected to be a whirlwind of changes, as the roster continuation might help the unit jump out to a positive position to begin Stage 2.
Excellent outside one round
April 21, 2018
ZooMa had a bad round but was good elsewhere in the 3-2 win over Lightning Pandaz on Day 2 of CWL Seattle.
Round 4 Hardpoint was a brutal round for ZooMa, and it was his worst round as a whole. He went 29/44, struggling to stay alive from start to finish. However, that was the only round in which he saw any real struggles. He was a strong and consistent slayer in the other rounds, even in both Search & Destroy rounds. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him net over 20 kills and buoyed that with strong play on the objective. It was a good performance from ZooMa, all told.
Lots of good moments in win
April 21, 2018
ZooMa had some very high spots in the 3-2 win over Rise Nation on Day 1 of CWL Seattle.
ZooMa was mostly excellent in this match. He was not perfect, however, as he had a few rounds in which he struggled. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him get just three kills in the 10-game loss, which was easily his worst round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him struggle to slay consistency (27/32), but had a strong objective game, netting over two minutes there. They lost that round, too, 250-247. The three round wins saw ZooMa dominate, however. He did not have the objective time in Round 1 Hardpoint he did in the later Hardpoint, but he had 33 kills and was a menace on the other end. He helped open up the map for the rest of his team with his strong slaying. His 19 kills in Round 3 Capture the Flag was second on the team behind Priestah, and the duo's strong slaying helped give them the late lead they grabbed in the second half. They trailed 1-0 for a long time, but they quickly rattled off three caps in a row to win it. He went off in Round 5 Search & Destroy, netting three first bloods in the first four games as they won in seven games.
