Splyce
Best round comes in last round
June 28, 2018
Jurd saved his best for last, but Splyce were still swept by FaZe Clan on Day 2, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Jurd's best performance came in Round 3 Capture the Flag. They lost the round handily (6-1), but Jurd was rather solid. He led his team in kills (18) and had the only positive KD on Splyce (18/17). He played rather well, but Splyce, as a whole, was thoroughly outslain by FaZe Clan. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him slay poorly (21/30) but have a solid game in terms of objective time (1:22). His slaying really hurt Splyce, since FaZe Clan slayed excellently and it helped swing the map in their favor, but his objective time helped get them to 231 points. They just needed a little more slaying out of him and Joshh. In between those rounds, he put together a poor Round 2 Search & Destroy performance, netting just two kills in the 6-1 loss.
Lands interesting, but ineffective plays
May 18, 2018
Jurd made some strong plays in a 3-0 loss to Red Reserve with a 48/49 KD on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was only able to go to a close Game 11 thanks to Jurd. Unlike the rest of his team, Jurd was able to clutch fights with surprising consistency. This was best seen in Game 5 and Game 9 of Round 2 Search & Destroy. In Game 5, Jurd landed a triple kill in a 1-vs-3 by playing decisively instead of defensively, pushing and forcing a fight around the bombsite. In Game 9, Bance was able to hold his lane against a scrambling Red Reserve. Bance closed Round 2 Search & Destroy with a KD.
Slips up again and again
April 21, 2018
Jurd struggled to build much of anything in a 3-1 loss to Team Kaliber on Friday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Jurd continued to be the weakest part of Splyce. Lacking any kind of frontline presence, he was utterly dominated by Team Kaliber's Kenny who, unlike Jurd, played fast and furious. His inability to slay saw Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy turn into washouts as Team Kaliber rushed straight into Splyce. Jurd and Bance were unable to withstand the overwhelming assault even with SMGs.
Falls apart in SMG battles
April 21, 2018
Jurd barely managed against Red Reserve in a 3-0 loss on Friday of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
The meta seemed to favor Jurd's aggressive SMG role, but he struggled to mount much of anything this series. Red Reserve's flexibility allowed them to easily rotate around Splyce in Round 1 Harpdoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy, leaving Jurd trying to awkwardly defend his team. In Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, Jurd was often stuck in uneven teamfights while trying to break points as Red Reserve was easily able to him off of hills. More than that, Jurd couldn't land consistent kills against an aggressive Red Reserve team.
Not able to push past rivals' front-line
April 2, 2018
Jurd tried to run through Luminosity Gaming in a double Grand Finals at CWL Birmingham, winning the first series 3-1 and losing the second series 3-1.
ANALYSIS
Much like Bance, Jurd's successes and weaknesses affected all of Splyce. As their key engagement, Jurd had to get kills or his team wouldn't be able to out-muscle Luminosity Gaming. Nowhere is this clearer then in both Round 1 Hardpoints. The first Round 1 Hardpoint was played on Valkyrie and saw Jurd open with a six killstreak by the second hill. His utter domination allowed him to push out spawns and clinch rotations, allowing Splyce to smash Luminosity Gaming 250-60. But the second Round 1 Hardpoint, played on London Docks, saw Jurd struggled at first as Luminosity began to run triple SMGs Jurd was no longer playing as aggressively as his KD dipped, forgoing flanks and harassment, Splyce found themselves getting involved in more and more teamfights.
Bullies Rise Nation in lane
April 2, 2018
Jurd pushed out lanes alongside Bance in a 3-1 win over Rise Nation in the Loser's Final at CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Reflecting the Splyce of last year, both Jurd and Bance worked together to bully Rise Nation. While boots-on-the-ground has changed his fundamental approach, Jurd still performed his basic role of getting shots down. He was able to cause havoc on Rise Nation's spawns by blitzing his opponents down, a form of aggression that has been missing from his gameplay all year. This was bese seen in Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie where, after getting an early set of kills, he immediately pushed lanes to spot out Rise Nation's spawns.
Hastily wastes important utility
April 2, 2018
Jurd whiffed important Scorestreaks in a 3-0 loss to Rise Nation in the Winner's Bracket Semifinal on Sunday at CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Jurd may have slayed well enough to earn various Scorestreaks, but his usage of them was more than questionable. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, Jurd was able to score an early set of Scorestreaks thanks to a flag capture and a triple kill. But towards the end of the first half, when Rise Nation attempted to rally a second flag pull, Jurd panicked. He burned both his Glide Bomb and his Fighter Pilot on mid-map, despite no one being nearby to secure his call outs. Even worse, the Fighter Pilot found no kills, which allowed Rise Nation to pull their flag with no resistance.
Strong respawn in win
March 30, 2018
Jurd had strong performances in every respawn round of the 3-1 win over Red Reserve on Day 1 of the CWL Birmingham Open.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was his worst round, but that goes for everyone on Splyce, not just him. After running out to a 4-1 lead, they lost five games in a row to lose the round, and see the series get tied at one apiece. The rest of his performance was impressive, however. The previous round, Round 1 Hardpoint, saw him dominate, reaching the 31-kill mark. He was solid for most of the round, helping keep them in striking distance as Red Reserve ran out to a 200-140 lead. He blew up late, however, as they won 250-230. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him get 13 kills at the halftime mark, and keep that going to get 28, even as Red Reserve had a mad scramble to force overtime. Round 4 Hardpoint was Splyce utterly dominate, leading 155-33 and 200-44 before winning 250-59. He was good, but it was an impressive team effort that gave them such a dominant win.
Fails to defend the frontline
March 22, 2018
Jurd doesn't play aggressively enough to secure playoff seeding in a 3-0 loss to eUnited on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Jurd wasn't able to engage with eUnited at all. Both Prestinni and SiLLy lit up in this series, leaving Jurd, who has struggled in this season's fast-paced SMG meta, out in the cold. For example, in Round 1 Hardpoint Jurd struggled to get into hills despite eUnited playing around hills, and not in them. This put Jurd into long-range fights he just couldn't win. Or in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he was often the first to fall for his team, being first-blooded four separate times on the map.
Consistent force in the win
March 22, 2018
Jurd was very consistent in the 3-1 win over Evil Geniuses on Day 2 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Jurd was great for Splyce, even in their Round 1 Hardpoint loss. The loss was rather bad, as they fell 250-180 without really ever getting close. Every push that Splyce made was answered by Evil Geniuses. Jurd was a team leader early on, running out to a nine kill start, and finished strong, going 33/31. He kept them rather close, but it was never really a competition. He and MadCat paced Splyce early on in the 11-game Round 2 Search & Destroy win. He helped them run out to a 5-2 lead before nearly collapsing. Round 3 Capture the the Flag was a rather mundane 3-1 win, in which they dominated the second half. Jurd had 11 kills in the first half, and parlayed that into an impressive 26/14 finish. He came up clutch, too, pacing them to their lead in the second half, and getting the kills that made it 3-1 with less than a minute to go, effectively icing the game. His worst round came in Round 4 Hardpoint, though it was far from bad. They were dominated for most of it, trailing 198-106 before winning 250-225. The comeback was impressive, and Jurd's best performance came once it started, though he struggled when they were losing badly. He had a big stand with Bance, getting them to the 250 mark and finishing off the comeback
Exploits Epsilon's weak gunplay
March 16, 2018
Jurd teared through Epsilon eSports with aggressive play in a 3-1 win on Friday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Epsilon eSports isn't known for their strong SMGs, but Splyce is. Jured was quickly able to mince his oppenents with his clean kills. Granted, he slayed less than Bance. The game was decided as early as the map drafting phase when Jrud was able to get London Docks for three maps in a row, a decidedly SMG-heavy map type. Working with Bance, he and Jurd worked to zone Epsilon eSports out of objectives. This was best seen in Round 1 Harpdoint and Round 4 Hardpoint where Jurd and Bance could sit in hills by simply just holding an entrance.
Gets overeager
March 9, 2018
Jurd failed to keep up against Rise Nation in a 3-2 loss on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Jurd is usually known for his strong SMG gameplay, but very little of that was seen this series. He would only make a strong appearance in the two Search & Destroy maps, where his slow and methodical style was able to find quick kills for his team. At the same time, Jurd made a ton of mistakes. In Round 5 Search & Destroy, Jurd would score an 8/2 KD but failed to secure Scorestreaks. This was because after Game 5 Jurd often overextended in order to scout and find kills, causing him to be an easy target for Rise Nation.
A team player despite some low scores
February 17, 2018
Even though Jurd didn't have the best of performances against Evil Geniuses, he still proved himself to be worthy of being part of the team as Splyce pushed aside Evil Geniuses 3-0 on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Jurd didn't have the best performance in terms of KD during Round 1 Hardpoint, as he was the only member of Splyce to go negative in KD with 23/26. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, he went negative in KD at 2/5, with little bomb interaction (that is, no plants or defuses), despite Splyce easily pulling the rug out from under Evil Geniuses with six straight wins for the win. But Jurd was instrumental and heroic in Round 3 Capture the Flag, where Evil Geniuses threatened to make a comeback, and despite Jurd's again-negative KD with 18/20, he scored a flag capture that pushed the series into overtime, and from there his teammates easily shut down any hope of Evil Geniuses even making a dent in Splyce's return to form.
Pokes some openings
February 14, 2018
Jurd tried to find ways to open up the map in a 3-2 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 5 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Jurd didn't change much this series. His aggressive SMG plays continued to open up plays for Splyce, but the problem was his teammates' inability to capitalize on his plays on important occasion. Round 3 Capture the Flag on London Docks was Jurd at his best. Jurd barreled down mid to split Team EnVyUs' spawns and positioning, allowing for Bance and Tommey to easily score eight flag captures. On the other side, Hardpoint rounds was Splyce at their worst. Jurd had to force his way through Team EnVyUs' iron-clad defenses, but struggled to break their hold.
Gets beamed down by SMGs
February 13, 2018
Jurd reunited with Splyce, only to be torn apart by Luminosity Gaming 3-0 on Day 4 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
After dealing with visa problems in Week 1, Jurd finally joins Splyce on stage. It's unfortunate, though, that his first series would be against Luminosity Gaming. Jurd didn't do anything wrong this series, it was just that Luminosity Gaming were playing at 110%. Jurd's typical SMG role couldn't stand up against the twin assaults of Slacked and John, best seen in the second half of Round 3 Capture the Flag where Jurd got a flag pull, only to be immediately beamed down. While Jurd could be criticized for engaging alone, his team was often picked apart before Jurd could make a play, leaving him vulnerable.
