Excellent outside one round
April 21, 2018
ZooMa had a bad round and was good elsewhere in the 3-2 win over Lightning Pandaz on Day 2 of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
Flanks to win the Stage 1 Championships
April 9, 2018
ZooMa won a show-stopping back-to-back Grand Finals victory over OpTic Gaming at CWL Stage 1 Playoffs, winning both series 3-2 and earning the title of MVP.
ANALYSIS
ZooMa truly has been the MVP of this squad. Breaking FaZe Clan out of a slump from CWL Dallas and making them Stage 1 champions, ZooMa forged this squad through fire by sticking to one simple tactic: flanks. ZooMa's tired and true strategy of flanking carried him through the Stage 1 Loser's Brackets as he was able to cause constant chaos in OpTic Gaming's ranks. While he made it look easy in this series, ZooMa showed impeccable game awareness as he was always spotting and pressuring his enemies' spawns. ZooMa didn't win this double Grand Finals off of one play, but instead by creating a consistent opening for his teammates to clutch up. This was best seen in the first Round 2 Search & Destroy as ZooMa constantly pushed mid-map to score kills. While he didn't always score a kill, he was always able to spot out players and make the call for his team.
Pressures Luminosity's flanks
April 9, 2018
ZooMa rebounded hard in a 3-2 reverse-sweep of Luminosity Gaming at the Loser's Finals at the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Round 3 Capture the Flag saw ZooMa begin a massive comeback he began to play for bold flanks after figuring out Luminosity Gaming's common positioning. This map awareness allowed him to spot out plays for his teammates to capitalize on. ZooMa's best round was Round 4 Hardpoint where ZooMa beamed with a fourteen killstreak. The Scorestreaks he scored were vital in stopping his rivals from surging back in that round, as Luminosity used ZooMa's aggression against him by forcing every fight on the hill to burn points and time.
Flanks and melts his rivals
April 8, 2018
o\ZooMa railed Team Kaliber with flanks in a 3-0 win on Day 3 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Team Kaliber, the team known for scrappy plays, couldn't lockdown ZooMa's flanks. Both ZooMa and Attach were able to glide around the map and steal kills, thanks to their strong SMG skills and Kenny's weak series. ZooMa's tight team coordination and calm composure allowed him to steal objectives and spawns against all odds. For example, in Round 3 Capture the Flag ZooMa had only 42 seconds to get a flag capture in overtime. ZooMa opened the second half of overtime with a kill, which allowed replays to move the flag from the enemy base. ZooMa was then able to rally the flag from replay's and bring into his team's base, where it was easily captured under the time limit.
Erases slow start
April 7, 2018
ZooMa had a slow start but overcame it in the 3-2 win over Team EnVyUs in their loser's bracket round one match on Day 2 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Things started off rough for ZooMa and FaZe Clan in Round 1 Hardpoint. He went 34/43, struggling to run with the strong slaying Team EnVyUs in the round. On top of that, they lost 250-249 - it was as frustrating as it could get. Round 2 Search & Destroy was better for each. He had six kills through four games and was one of the leaders of their 6-1 win. He had 20 kills in Round 3 Capture the Flag, providing consistent slaying for FaZe Clan. His play helped give them their lead in the first half, and his strong defensive game helped them keep Team EnVyUs off the board. He made up for his first Hardpoint performance in Round 4 Hardpoint, leading them, alongside Replays, to an early lead. While they lost their lead late, to Temp and Huke's strong games, ZooMa had a solid 33/26 KD in the round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him dominant, alongside Priestah. He was a consistent force in the round and got the final kill in Game 9 to win it.
Dominant in loss
April 7, 2018
ZooMa had a few incredible rounds in the 3-1 loss to Team Kalier on Day 1 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
ZooMa only had one sub-par round in this loss; Round 3 Capture the Flag. Team Kaliber took that round with ease, and ZooMa fell victim to their strong slaying throughout both halves of the round. He went 16/23 in the round -- he led his team in kills, but the deaths were far too high. The rest of his performance was excellent, though. Their only round win, Round 1 Hardpoint, was largely due to his ridiculous 51 kills. His slaying put his teammates in favorable positions often, and they were able to capitalize on those spots to win the round. He continued that strong slaying with double digit kills in their ten game loss in Round 2 Search & Destroy, and led his team in kills again with 37 in Round 4 Hardpoint. He came up late in that round, with a strong push making it a close game after Replays held down the fort early. ZooMa was an excellent slayer in this one, and will look to build upon that as the playoffs continue.
Strong performance not enough
March 31, 2018
ZooMa did all he could for FaZe Clan in their 3-2 loss against Team Kaliber on Day 1 of CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
ZooMa continues to be one of the standout members of this FaZe Clan team on a regular basis. In just about every round of this game, he was playing his best Call of Duty and it got them all the way to Round 5, Game 11. They wouldn't have even gotten that far without some of his major contributions. First, he put up a ridiculous 45/24 KD to force Round 5 Search & Destroy. Then, in that S&D, it was his monstrous 1-vs-2 that allowed the team even get to that Game 11. They didn't get there, but such a strong showing from ZooMa bodes well for FaZe Clan moving forward.
Leader in win
March 21, 2018
ZooMa was incredible in the 3-1 win over UNILAD on Day 1 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Outside of Round 3 Capture the Flag -- a round where he went 16/18 and where FaZe Clan were handled in the second half in their sold round loss -- ZooMa was incredible. Round 1 Hardpoint saw he and Attach lead the way en route to a 250-167 win. ZooMa was extremely consistent, leading the way for FaZe Clan throughout the round. He ended up going 39/27, truly dominating. He continued to slay well in the 6-1 Round 2 Search & Destroy win, which was an easy a win as it sounds. ZooMa and his typical hyper-aggressive Search & Destroy style was on full display, and UNILAD had no answer. Round 4 Hardpoint was close than the rest, finishing 250-226. ZooMa continued his strong slaying, notching 30 kills in the round. He was key in staving off an impressive push from wuskin and Moose. Without his slaying, they could have easily lost the round.
Versatile contributor in win
March 17, 2018
ZooMa did a little bit of everything in the sweep win over Team EnVyUs on Day 3 of Week 3 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
ZooMa did not contribute to each round in the same way, but he was an important piece of the puzzle for FaZe Clan in each one. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him have a 1.00 KD ratio (21/21) but had a whopping 2:34 on the objective. He was not the strongest slayer, but his propensity to lap up Hardpoint time helped positively affect the round for them. His best slaying performance came in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he had nine kills in the 6-1 win. They totally crushed Team EnVyUs, and ZooMa's strong slaying was a big reason why. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him fall back to his 1.00 KD ways (17/17), but he came up large with the flag in his hands. He had both flag caps, the first of which he and Attach sprang on their own.
Heavily involved in first two rounds
March 16, 2018
ZooMa had an important role in the beginning of the 3-1 win over Evil Geniuses on Day 2 of Week 3 of CWL Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
ZooMa's contributions came in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw everyone on FaZe Clan play poorly, as they only scored a single flag cap and were basically stuck in their base in the first half, and continuously held in a stalemate in the second. Round 4 Hardpoint was a tough 250-226 win, but ZooMa was pretty heavily outslayed, going 27/36. The first two rounds were strong, however. The first round saw him and Priestah fly out to a hot start, and his strong slaying display saw him land 36 kills. He was ultra aggressive in the second round, running out and giving FaZe map control. He helped get them out to a 5-1 win, but he began to struggle as Evil Geniuses woke up and forced a 10th game, one that FaZe would win.
Lets wins slip from his grasp
March 10, 2018
ZooMa had the slaying skills to take wins away from OpTic Gaming during their series against them, but he couldn't capitalize on those skills as FaZe Clan lost to OpTic Gaming 3-1 on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
It's been said before and it'll be said again - kills aren't everything in Call of Duty, and ZooMa learned this lesson the hard way against OpTic Gaming. ZooMa demonstrated solid slaying skills in a surprisingly even Round 1 Hardpoint with an even KD of 25/25, but OpTic snatched a round victory from FaZe's jaws by just over a 50-point margin. ZooMa's slaying power did factor in FaZe's Round 2 Search & Destroy victory, where he got a cool triple-positive 9/3 KD as FaZe nearly swept the round. What should have been a clean victory for FaZe in Round 3 Capture the Flag turned ugly for them as OpTic's players made a last-minute rally, a rally that ZooMa could not counter despite his KD of 27/22, the only positive one of FaZe that round. Finally, in a loss that might haunt ZooMa, OpTic scored one of the narrowest of victories against FaZe, as ZooMa once again unable to stop it despite his impressive KD of 39/36.
Outflanks for an easy win
March 9, 2018
ZooMa tore through eUnited's flanks in a 3-0 sweep on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
ZooMa didn't have to change a single aspect of his strategy in this series. The uncoordinated eUnited practically let ZooMa flank their defenses for easy kills. And when ZooMa can flank, he absolutely dominates. He'd tear through Round 1 Hardpoing on Valkyrie with a 30/16 KD as the tight map easily allowed ZooMa to roam for kills. He wouldn't let up the pressure either in the next two maps. Priestah and him could easily get right in the face of eUnited to punish their weak gunplay.
Top-tier slayer in win
February 15, 2018
ZooMa continued to slay at an excellent pace in the 3-1 win over Epsilon eSports, during the opening match on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
ZooMa picked up where he left off in this match, putting together another excellent slaying performance. Round 1 Hardpoint was a 250-93 rout in favor of FaZe, and ZooMa was a big reason why it happened. He had 35 kills, and paired them with 1:17 of Hardpoint time. His balanced game was a killer for Epsilon eSports, who struggled to get into good position throughout the round due to getting outslayed. ZooMa was a big part of that. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw ZooMa and Priestah go off, as they put the team on their back. ZooMa had a bigger late game than early, with his final kills coming in Game 5 and Game 9 (winning the round), as well as a two-kill performance in Game 7. He provided a burst of offense that challenged the depth of Epsilon behind Dqvee, a challenge FaZe won. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a disaster for FaZe as a whole, as Dqvee had an unbelievable game, and Vortex and Nathan provided enough depth behind him to completely shut down the FaZe offense. ZooMa was the only player on FaZe to top a KD of 1.00 (23/18), but he really had no help, and his kills were fruitless. Round 4 Hardpoint was a return to form for FaZe, as they squeaked out a 250-243 win. ZooMa did not live on the Hardpoint, but he had a huge slaying game. He topped the 32-kill mark, and was consistently good, even when Epsilon was leading early.
Excellent display in win
February 15, 2018
ZooMa was great in every round of the 3-1 win over Luminosity, a Wednesday match for the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
ZooMa was on fire in this match, and Luminosity Gaming had no answer for him. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him put together a 38 kill performance, and was a big reason why FaZe got out to an early, insurmountable lead. He was the leader of a well-balanced attack that Luminosity faltered under, outside of one late push when the round was out of reach. He kept this going into Round 2 Search & Destroy, as he finished with 16 kills in the round. Despite his excellent gun play, FaZe fell to a 5-2 deficit before losing in 11 games. If he had more support behind him, especially early on, this would have been a sweep. He stayed hot with an excellent two-way game in Round 3 Capture the Flag, notching 24 kills and three of his team's four flag caps. He put on a slaying clinic, running and gunning all over the map, and snapping on any Luminosity player he saw. His Round 4 Hardpoint performance was a culmination of the other rounds. He had 39 kills, 48 seconds on the objective, and led FaZe to a complete performance. They all had over 30 kills, and dominated the kill feed and had excellent map position. He was great, and FaZe looked unstoppable with him at the helm.
