Strong respawn play in win
July 7, 2018
Replays struggled in Search & Destroy, but made up for it with his respawn rounds in the 3-2 win over Team Kaliber on Day 3, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Replays two worst rounds were the two Search & Destroy rounds. Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him struggle to consistently slay, as he ended up falling back into a reserve role in both. His respawn rounds were much more solid, however. He played well in Round 1 Hardpoint despite the loss. His 27/24 KD was the only positive KD for any FaZe member, and he also led them in Hardpoint time with 1:17. They lost 250-217, but he helped keep them in striking distance. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a blowout in FaZe's way, as they won 7-2 and were never really threatened by Team Kaliber. During the round, he was barely involved in gunfights (he had a 12/11 KD in the round) but he led his team in flag caps with three. He was a constant threat despite not doing much slaying - his teammates took care of that aspect. He was good in the round, just in an objective-based way. Round 4 Hardpoint was another tough Hardpoint loss, as they lost 250-202 after leading 150-70. Despite the collapse, Replays was solid. His 29/25 KD ratio was the only positive one on the team, and he added 58 seconds on the objective to that end. He was certainly good, but the strong games from Accuracy and Kenny overcame it.
Quiet support in sweep
July 6, 2018
Replays had a laid back but productive performance in the sweep win over Echo Fox on Day 2, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Replays had a quiet match in the sweep win, but that does not mean it was a poor performance. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him 20/13 with 42 seconds on the objective, playing a key role in the dominating win. FaZe Clan ran out to 145-14 and 207-33 leads before winning 250-54 - Replays did a lot to help get them there, especially with his efficient slaying. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him sit in a support role, as his teammates did the heavy lifting. His solid support play was key to the Game 11 win in Search & Destroy, and the 2-0 win in Capture the Flag; without his play, Echo Fox could have climbed back into this match.
Excellent in sweep win
June 28, 2018
Replays had a strong game in each round of the sweep win over Splyce on Day 2, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Replays was excellent in this match. Round 1 Hardpoint was the only competitive round of the match, as FaZe Clan fought tooth and nail to squeak out a 250-231 win. All four members of FaZe Clan put in a good performance, Replays included. He notched 30 kills in the round, and added a solid 52 seconds on the objective. The depth of FaZe Clan was what put them over the edge, and Replays was a key part of that. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag were both 6-1 wins, and both housed strong performances from everyone. Replays was a key support player in the former, and led the lobby in kills with 26 in the latter, not to mention netting two flag caps in the win.
Saves best for last in loss
June 27, 2018
Replays' best round was the last round of the 3-1 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 1, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Replays saved his best performance for last in this match. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him really limp out of the gate, going just 12/24 in the loss. He had trouble finding his footing in this one, struggling both when it was close and when Team EnVyUs ran away with the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him perk up a bit, as he provided solid support in their only win of the match. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him fall back to his round one struggles. He did have one of his team's two flag caps, but he was routinely outslayed (14/19KD). Round 4 Hardpoint was his best round, as he was the only good player on FaZe in the early going. He helped keep them afloat, but every time a push was made Team EnVyUs pushed it back. There just was not enough offense to keep this match going.
Some inconsistencies in win
June 17, 2018
Replays did more good than bad, but suffered from some inconsistency in the 3-2 win over Ghost Gaming on Day 2 of CWL Anaheim, securing FaZe Clan a spot in the winner's bracket.
ANALYSIS
Replays had a nice start to Round 1 Hardpoint, but he faltered off as the round went on - specifically in the slaying department. He finished the round with 1:37 on the objective, but had just a 17/19 KD in the round. He helped get them out in front early, but as Ghost Gaming came back into it - and eventually ran away with it - he struggled to slay. He was dominant in Round 2 Search & Destroy, especially in the early goings of the 6-1 win. Priestah, Attach and Replays really carried the load for FaZe in the round. He cratered in their 1-0 Round 3 Capture the Flag loss, a round that saw the gap be much greater than the 1-0 score. They were completely outslayed, and the offense never was able to get off the ground. Replays went 13/17 in the round. Replays struggled for the early portion of the win, but heated up as FaZe Clan were able to take the lead, and eventually force a fifth round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him notch double-digit kills in the 6-2 round win, as they secured their spot in the winner's bracket.
Hangs back in support role in loss
June 16, 2018
Replays stayed in a support role in each round of the 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Replays stayed in a support role for the majority of this match. Round 1 Hardpoint is a perfect example of his support-based performance, as he had an uninspiring KD (23/25) but notched an impressive 2:05 on the objective. Staying back and lapping up Hardpoint time was his role, and he played it well - they just could not complete their comeback and lost a close round. He was similar in Round 2 Search & Destroy, playing a support role behind leading performances from ZooMa and Attach. Again, they would barely lose the round, losing 6-5 after coming back from a 5-2 deficit. He had the final kill in Games 8 and 9, helping keep them alive. His best all-around round was Round 3 Capture the Flag, as he went 18/13 and had the game-winning flag cap in the second half. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him play similarly to Round 1 Hardpoint opting for Hardpoint time (1:27) than kills (25/30). He did his job well, but Red Reserve proved to be too much yet again.
Slays inconsistently in loss
May 24, 2018
Replays played a slow game in a 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Replays had an unremarkable game this series due to a lack of coordination and teamwork. Playing slowly, Replays was often unable to engage with his team as FaZe Clan spread themselves thin attempting to find picks. While this worked in Replays' favor in Round 3 Capture the Flag since he could sneak out points, he struggled in most other rounds. Replays couldn't win uneven teamfights without support. FaZe Clan, unfortunately, were unable to coordinate teamfights.
Makes up for inconsistent slaying
May 23, 2018
Replays contributed despite some slaying struggles in the sweep win over Echo Fox on Day 1 of Week 2 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Replays did not slay well in this one, but he made up for it, for the most part. The only round he did not give a positive contribution to was Round 3 Capture the Flag. He went 15/19 in the round, struggling in the very defensive and tense 2-1 win. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go just 23/23, which was easily the worst KD on his team, but he paired that with an incredible 2:42 on the objective. While his teammates were raking up the kills (all of them had over 30) he stayed back and soaked up the objective time. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him and Attach plug in the holes behind incredible performances by Priestah and ZooMa.
Hot start to loss
May 17, 2018
Replays had a great start to the 3-1 loss to Evil Geniuses on Day 2 of Week 1 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Replays' best two rounds came in the first two rounds of the match, the second round resulting in their only win. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Replays put together a solid 25/23 KD, resulting in the only positive KD ratio on his team. He had a strong end to the round, considering he started 6/10, struggling under the hot start from FaZe Clan. He was at the heart of a few pushes by FaZe Clan, but they were just too far behind to come back. He was a big part of the Round 2 Search & Destroy 11-game win, as he and the rest of FaZe Clan outlasted an incredible performance from Assault. Replays was key in winning Games 7 and 8, the former by waiting out the clock for the win and the latter with a kill. This was on the heels of Assault winning three games in a row for Evil Geniuses, in which Replays was key in swinging the momentum back in FaZe's favor. However, he really struggled down the stretch for FaZe Clan, putting in subpar performances in both Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint as they lost the match.
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 the round in 10 games. 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 him 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.
