More good than bad in win
April 21, 2018
Replays had a solid showing in the 3-2 over Lightning Pandaz on Day 2 of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Replays did a lot of good in this match, but it was not perfect. Namely, Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him struggle as Lightning Pandaz played well and won in ten. He also struggled to slay quite a bit in Round 4 Hardpoint, going 26/34. He did have a solid 1:10 on the objective to help buoy his KD ratio. The rest of his performance was solid. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 27/22 with nearly 1:30 on the objective. He was a part of a strong three-headed monster with Priestah and ZooMa that was far too much for Lightning Pandaz. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw he and ZooMa lead the charge to a 6-3 win, especially in the second half as they ran away with it after a 3-2 lead coming out of halftime. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw FaZe Clan win 6-1, and all four of their players dominated, Replays included.
Truly excellent in win
April 21, 2018
Replays was a huge part of the 3-2 win over Rise Nation on Day 1 of the CWL Seattle Open.
ANALYSIS
Replays was excellent in this match, right from the start. He was a big reason why they took a close game as both teams hovered around 130, and turned it into an easy win. He went 27/23 with a lobby leading 1:43 of Hardpoint time. He had the lowest part of the round in their Round 2 Search & Destroy loss, getting just two kills in the 10-game defeat. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him play a key role as they came back from a 1-0 deficit to win 3-1. He had 16 kills in the round and was a solid support player behind ZooMa and Priestah. He took the role of lead slayer in Round 4 Hardpoint, netting 30 kills in the round. He did not do much on the Hardpoint, netting just 26 seconds there, but his slaying was important in getting them to 247 points before they lost. He continued his strong play in their dominating 6-1 win in Round 5 Search & Destroy. He had two kills in the final Game 7, securing the win.
Clutches with massive plays in the CWL Championships
April 9, 2018
Replays pulled in several miracles in a double Grand Finals win over OpTic Gaming at CWL Stage 1 Playoffs, winning both series 3-2.
ANALYSIS
Replays was as cold as ice this series, keeping calm in extremely tense situations to clutch up important wins. Replays' first miracle play came in during the first Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks when FaZe Clan was down 80 points and OpTic was 20 points from closing the game. On the third Main Street hill, Replays landed a frag that killed two players. This kill secured rotations to the Docks Warehouse while giving his team scrap time from Main Street. He then rotated to Statue where he was able to hold against Karma, which allowed him to rotate behind OpTic Gaming to get a double kill that once again secured the hill, rotations and a win for his team. The second miracle came in the first Round 2 Search & Destroy on London Docks when, in Game 8, Replays clutched a 1-vs-3 with some incredible timing and even better shots. And his final miracle came in the second Round 4 Hardpoint when Replays scored a massive triple kill that once again secured hills and rotations for his team.
Helps slow down the series for his team
April 9, 2018
Replays played a calculated game in a 3-2 reverse-sweep over Luminosity Gaming in the Loser's Finals at the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Replays continues to be the silent partner in FaZe Clan's miraculous run through the Loser's Brackets. Playing as anchor for his team, Replays did have trouble securing map control in the first half of the series as FaZe Clan's flank-heavy tactics tend to make everyone's spawns scattered. However, despite this, Replays was still able to secure his team some normal spawns starting from Round 3 Capture the Flag. This was especially impressive since Replay's AR had to go up against Luminosity Gaming's Octane, one of the best AR players in the league.
Holds and anchors spawns with defense
April 8, 2018
Replays played a steady game in a lightning-fast 3-0 win over Team Kaliber on Day 3 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Unlike the rest of his teammates, Replays didn't pull off any insane plays this series. Mainly because he didn't have to in the short series. This allowed Replays to focus on playing defense with his teammates, which became vital in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. In the first half of Round 3 Capture the Flag, Team Kaliber started extraordinarily hot but they were unable to rally a streak of points thanks to Replays' strong AR skills that snapped down flag pulls. Then, in the second half of overtime, Replays was able to rebound a flag pull to get a last-second win thanks to his base defense.
Mostly excellent in close win
April 7, 2018
Replays was great outside of one hiccup in the 3-2 win over Team EnVyUs during their first loser's bracket match on Day 2 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Replays had a strong performance in this match, in basically every round. He was easily the second best player on the team in Round 1 Hardpoint, doing a lot of things in both the slaying department (37/31 KD) and on the objective (1:14). He almost got them to a win, but a hero play by both Classic and Huke saw their win slip away, losing 250-249. His strong play continued into the rest of the game. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him get off to a hot start, netting five kills through the first three, and finishing off the final two games -- 6 and 7 -- with kills. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him hit 11 kills before finishing 17/16 - he coasted a bit in the second half, but they were so far ahead he sat back in the half. He was one of the leaders in Round 4 Hardpoint and served as the best two-way player on the team. They lost in heartbreaking fashion again, however. Round 5 Search & Destroy was clearly his worst round. He only had one kill through the first five games. While he picked it up a little later on, it was really his worst round. Regardless of that, he had a strong game and was key to keeping FaZe Clan alive.
Up and down performance
April 7, 2018
Replays struggled with consistency in the 3-1 loss to Team Kaliber on Day 1 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Round1 Hardpoint saw Replays do some good things in support of ZooMa's incredible performance. His 37 kills helped, despite his 37 deaths, and his 1:31 was second on his team. Despite his high death total, he definitely helped swing the round in their favor. After a middling Round 2 Search & Destroy, and a lowly 10 kill performance in Round 3 Capture the Flag, he had a strong Round 4 Hardpoint to finish off the round. Despite the loss, he played a strong two-way game, going 34/28 and 1:20 on the objective. He was one of the best players in the lobby, and kept place with Accuracy early on, and allowed his teammates to step up to make it close. While they could not force a fifth round, Replays ended on a high note individually.
Uneven performance in loss
March 31, 2018
Replays couldn't bring enough consistency to FaZe Clan's 3-2 loss against Team Kaliber on Friday during Pool B at CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Replays was a Hardpoint master throughout this series, racking up plenty of time for his team in both of the rounds. It was his performance in every other round that ended up doing his team in, however. In Capture the Flag, he was lagging behind the group in terms of kills, which left FaZe unable to really get any sort of pushes going in the 3-0 loss. He was just as rough in both Search & Destroy rounds as they seemed to lack the wherewithal to keep up with Team Kaliber as the rounds progressed. They might have gotten to a Game 11 in the final S&D, but tK was too strong for them to handle.
Gets carried by his teammates to victory
March 26, 2018
Replays had a solid Capture the Flag round, but that was about it as FaZe Clan scored a 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Thursday of Week 8 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Replays didn't have the best series against Luminosity Gaming, but this turned out not to matter as his teammates, especially Priestah and ZooMa, did much of the legwork to earn the victory. Replays started out with a mediocre KD in Round 1 Hardpoint of 23/28 as LG took that round by a narrow margin. Replays would continue to have an abysmal Round 2 Search & Destroy, becoming a bullet sponge for FaZe Clan as his KD went double-negative with 3/6. Replays's one solid round was Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he notched a positive KD of 17/14 while also scoring a flag capture. However, Replays's performance would suffer again in Round 4 Hardpoint as it dipped into negative territory again with 20/21, as ZooMa and Priestah would steal the limelight for FaZe Clan.
Poor last round does not stop win
March 21, 2018
Replays finished a strong game with an iffy last round in the 3-1 win over UNILAD on Day 1 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Replays was one of the most consistent members of FaZe Clan in their win over UNILAD, even contributing something of importance in his middling Round 4 Hardpoint showing. The first three rounds were excellent for him, though. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him be a very balanced contributor, although he was the third wheel behind ZooMa and Attach, and became somewhat of a forgotten man because of it. He went 28/24 with a strong 1:24 on the objective in the round. That two-way game made the round much easier for FaZe Clan. He continued to perform well in the shadows of the Round 2 Search & Destroy win, putting in a nice performance behind Priestah and ZooMa. Round 3 Capture the Flag, where his 20 kills led the team, and joint-led the lobby. Despite that, they lost the round, mostly due to his teammates being wildly outslayed in the second half of the round, as he was the only FaZe member to finish above a 1.00 KD. He played well but got absolutely no support from his teammates. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him finally struggle to slay (16/21 KD) but he soaked up the Hardpoint time in place of that. He had over two minutes on the objective, in a round where they needed every second--they won just 250-226. Even when the slaying was not there, he contributed to FaZe's efforts.
Big moments in respawn
March 17, 2018
Replays was a solid contributor in the sweep win over Team EnVyUs on Day 3 of Week 3 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Replays had three solid performances in the sweep win over Team EnVyUs, even if his Round 2 Search & Destroy showing was more of a support-role behind an impressive ZooMa performance. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him joint-hold the kill lead (27) on his team. He also gave FaZe Clan the icing on their 250-152 win, as his Glide Bomb emptied the Hardpoint and allowed his teammates to flood the objective and finish off the win. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him finish the first half with double-digit kills, and finish 23/15 overall. He played great defense in the 2-0 win, helping keep Team EnVyUs' offense at bay for the entirety of the round.
Strong slayer in win
March 16, 2018
Replays slayed the competition well in the 3-1 win over Evil Geniuses on Day 2 of Week 3 of CWL Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 3 Capture the Flag was his, and FaZe Clan's worst round. For the entirety of the first round they were pinned in their own base, and Evil Geniuses kept the pressure on strongly. They opened up the map a bit in the second half, but Evil Geniuses counter-pulled seemingly every flag, and wasted the half causing stalemate after stalemate. Replays struggled alongside his teammates in the round. The rest of his performance was excellent, however. He had 33 or more kills in both Hardpoint rounds, providing a stable slaying base for FaZe Clan in their easy win (Round 1 Hardpoint) and their incredibly close 250-226 win (Round 4 Hardpoint). His slaying was a key in winning both rounds. He was also important to their Round 2 Search & Destroy win. He had double-digit kills, helping lead FaZe to a 5-1 lead and a 6-4 win.
Had solid objective moments in loss
March 10, 2018
Replays played the objectives in some rounds very well, but that wasn't enough to stop OpTic Gaming from claiming victory over FaZe Clan 3-1 on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Replays had moments where he held onto objectives for FaZe Clan and did not let go, but OpTic still got the better of him eventually. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Replays had the most hardpoint control time of his team at 1:12 despite a negative KD of 25/26. Replays was the only member of FaZe Clan to get a negative KD in Round 2 Search & Destroy with 4/5, but he did make up for this with a bomb defusal. Replays was the only member of FaZe Clan to score a flag capture in Round 3 Capture the Flag, and this would've been fine if it wasn't for a last minute rally by OpTic Gaming, as Replays ended that round with a paltry 13/19 KD. Replays would fizzle out in Round 4 Hardpoint, getting the only negative KD of his team with 23/29 as OpTic rallied against FaZe Clan again to defeat them by mere seconds.
Holds his aggressive team together
March 9, 2018
Replays continues to be the silent core in a 3-0 sweep of eUnited on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Replays may be constantly overshadowed by his teammates, but he's a vital piece of his team's success. The wild movements of FaZe Clan often mean their spawns constantly change. Replays, however, is the one player who's able to give his teammates consistent spawning. This is best seen in the first half of Round 3 Capture the Flag. ZooMa and Priestah played aggressively to hurt eUnited's spawns, but replays was able to keep their spawns either in FaZe Clan's base or in mid-map.
Mixed bag in win
February 15, 2018
Replays could not stay consistent in Thursday's 3-1 win over Epsilon eSports during the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Replays had a lot of problems staying consistent in this match. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him have a below average KD (21/26). While that did not effect the 250-93 win, that was more do to his teammates dominance rather than anything else. He provided depth, and peppered in kills around the map, but it was a three man show. This continued into Round 2 Search & Destroy. His first kill of the round came in Game 6, but it was a big one. He flanked Epsilon, surprised them with a kill, and totally blew apart their plan. They became easy to pick off after that. He had two kills in Game 7, building off his Game 6 performance, but did not do much else after that. His low point came in Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he put together an abhorrent 9/21 KD ratio, as FaZe Clan were dominated on the kill feed. They had no way to build offense, as Epsilon shut every push they made outside of one. It was a blowout, plain and simple. Round 4 Hardpoint was a gritty 250-243 win that saw FaZe come back after trailing for a big portion of the round. Replays did a very good job in this one, adding 26 kills and a whopping 1:42 on the objective in the round. He was not the star that Attach or ZooMa were, but he was an excellent third option, and his Hardpoint time was a big key as to why they completed their comeback.
