Splyce
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
urd 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 round. 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.
Acquires visa for Week 2 of Pro League
February 8, 2018
Jurd has resolved his visa issues and will be back with Splyce next week, Splyce team manager Michael Butterworth tweeted Thursday.
ANALYSIS
While Felony has been doing his best to fill Jurd's spot during Week 1, the team will surely be happy to have one of their best players back. With him flying out to the states on Friday, Jurd will have a few days to practice and get back into the swing of things before Splyce takes on Luminosity Gaming next Tuesday. Splyce will next see action against Epsilon Esports on Thursday as they still search for their second win of the Pro League.
Unable to secure visa for CWL Pro League
February 5, 2018
Jurd will not be able to partake in the CWL Pro League as he was unable to secure a visa in time for the event.
ANALYSIS
Jurd's unexpected issue could be crucial for a Splyce team that is expected to be among the best to partake in Division B play. While the team has not confirmed who will be his replacement, reports are suggesting Felony will take over for Jurd, at least for the team's time in Columbus.
Pokes holes in eUnitde's defense
January 13, 2018
Jurd smashed eUnited while on the offense in a 2-3 loss to eUnited on Day 1 of CWL New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
Jurd continued to do "Jurd things" as his SMG melted eUnited. At least, when Jurd was the one initiating fights. Round 3 Capture the Flag on London Docks was a highlight for Jurd as he pressed eUnited's defense alongside Tommey. The two of them easily able pinched out eUnited with Jurd flying in with his SMG while Tommey secured the final kills before pulling the flag, once in the first half and two more times in the second half. But this all turned around in Round 4 Hardpoint. Quickly, eUnited made sure to start every fight instead of Splyce having a single advantage. This often left Jurd and Tommey out in the cold as their backline was melted by the full weight of eUnited's lineup.
Slows down the pace of the game
December 11, 2017
Jurd played a slower game in a 2-3 loss to Team Kaliber at the CWL Dallas grand finals.
ANALYSIS
Jurd had a difficult set of games being one of the sole SMG runner for Splyce in the second half of the series. Team Kaliber runs a heavy anti-SMG comp of smoke grenades, stun grenades and assault rifles that make it incredibly difficult for someone like Jurd, who runs the SMG, to make much leeway. However, Jurd's movement and scouting would prove valuable to Splyce in slower rounds like Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint. Jurd would attempt to cut through mid-map in order to find weaknesses and picks onto Team Kaliber. This usually meant that Jurd would fall into a firefight with Team Kaliber's Kenny, who would also be roaming. Jurd won this fight in most cases with his snappier reaction. But Jurd's SMG wasn't enough to swing the game in Splyce's favor in any way.
Slams OpTic Gaming's defense
December 11, 2017
Jurd railed OpTic Gaming in a 3-0 sweep, scoring Splyce a place at the CWL Dallas Grand Finals.
ANALYSIS
Jurd played hard and smart against the titans of OpTic Gaming. Having already played the team early that day, Jurd and Splyce wound up drafting an incredibly simple, but effective, gameplan: hit OpTic Gaming hard and fast. For Jurd, this meant pinning OpTic Gaming into the Bomb B site in Round 2 Search and Destroy on Ardennes Forest. He did this in most rounds by blitzing OpTic Gaming with an SMG, refusing to give them any time to set-up, through Ruins. While he wouldn't always get first blood, it was more than enough to bait OpTic Gaming into the narrow corner of the map or at least scout out their defenses. From Ruins, Jurd and Bance could use the area's walls and pillars as cover to beat OpTic Gaming's snappy sights.
Hot start in loss
December 10, 2017
Jurd flew out of the gates in the 3-2 loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Dallas. The loss saw Splyce fall down to the losers' bracket.
ANALYSIS
Jurd and Splyce as a whole were excellent in Round 1 Hardpoint. He played both ways, slaying and doing well on the objective, as Splyce handed OpTic Gaming a 250-63 defeat -- it was utter dominance. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Jurd fight admirably, but he could not do anything against relentless a relentless OpTic performance as the series got tied up. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Splyce get back to dominating, and Jurd performed well -- he was key in their strong defense that frustrated and stifled OpTic Gaming. Round 4 Hardpoint and Round 5 Search & Destroy saw OpTic Gaming rattle off two wins in a row to cap off a comeback, and Jurd could not do anything to stop them.
Rotations lead to win
December 10, 2017
Jurd was on top of his game in Splyce's easy 3-0 over Ground Zero in the winners' quarterfinals of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Jurd didn't put up the explosive stats all throughout this series, but he more than did his job to help Splyce pick up this win on Sunday. He rotated well in Hardpoint to give his team the easy win before they continued rolling right through Ground Zero in this series. He also added in a few multi-kills here and there to lock up the 3-0 sweep. Splyce now moves on to a matchup with OpTic Gaming in the winners' semifinals.
Big when it matters most
December 9, 2017
Jurd came up in the clutch in the 3-2 win over eUnited on Day 2 of Group Play at CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Jurd had a relatively quiet outing in this one -- until late. Jurd focused on the Hardpoint in Round 1, while his teammates -- namely Tommey and Bance -- kept eUnited in check with their slaying. Jurd played support in Round 2 Search & Destroy, lopping up kills that need to be. Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint both went the way of eUnited, setting up for a winner-take-all Round 5 Search & Destroy. Jurd was everywhere in this round, and some excellent play saw him swing nearly every game in Splyce's favor.
Goes big on the Search & Destroy rounds
August 19, 2017
Jurd had tough rounds, but his solid Search & Destroy gameplay with an overall KD of 72/82 clutched a victory for Splyce on Day 4 of the 2017 CWL Championships, knocking Epsilon eSports out of the brackets.
ANALYSIS
Jurd had a tough time against Epsilon eSports, but he'd clutch up at the end to be the one nailing Epsilon eSports' coffin shut. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Jurd floundering at the start, for while Splyce won that round, Jurd notched a negative KD of 17/21. Jurd fared slightly better in Round 2 Search & Destroy, a round which saw Jurd notch a break-even KD of 8/8 despite Splyce ultimately losing that round. Round 3 Uplink saw Jurd notch a KD of 18/24, but he also scored an early dunk, a score that helped Splyce ultimately win as the round went into overtime. Round 4 Hardpoint wasn't a pleasant round for Jurd, where he'd only get a 17/23 KD and the least Hardpoint control time of his team at twenty-seven seconds. But Jurd was the difference maker in a super-tense Round 5 Search & Destroy, where he'd drop a KD bomb of 12/6, using FTL Jump to score the final kill in a heart-pounding Game 11 and sealing Epsilon eSport's fate.
Struggled to run with Luminosity in eliminating loss
August 12, 2017
Jurd had a hard time keeping pace with Luminosity Gaming, as Splyce were swept by them. The loss eliminated Luminosity on Day 4 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a tough one for Splyce. They fell behind early, only to make up some ground, and trail by a large margin (100-34). They inched back, and made it 250-211, much closer than it seemed it would be. Jurd went 19/20, not slaying particularly well, but still had 1:11 on the objective. Round 2 Search & Destroy was another rough loss, this time in ten games. Jurd had the final kill in Game 8, tying the round at four games apiece, at the time. Round 3 Uplink saw everything come crashing down, as Splyce limped out of Champs with a 15-3 loss. Jurd really struggled, going 19/25 in the round.
Up and down in Pool G loss
August 11, 2017
Jurd could not stay consistent in the 3-1 loss to Splyce on Day 2 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss dropped them to second in the group, but they still qualifed for the playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Outside of a 6-1 Round 2 Search & Destroy win that saw Jurd notch the final kill in Game 5 and Splyce dominate, there was not much to say about them. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Splyce start off slow, and never get out from behind the eight ball. It was rather kind to Jurd, however, despite the 250-163 loss. He went 24/22 with over a minute on the objective. Round 3 Uplink was a 8-3 loss that Jurd limped through, to the tune of 19/25. Round 4 Hardpoint saw them blow a lead they held from their 35-1 start. It was a frustrating loss, and Jurd went 23/25, only compounding that frustration for Jurd and company.
Forces a narrow round win
August 10, 2017
Jurd fell a little short in a win over Millenium in Group G on Day 2 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
While Splyce looked a lot closer to their older selves in a win that placed them into the playoff brackets, Jurd was the one member who came up a little short. While Jurd was far from bad, he seemed to have a rougher time matching Splyce's fast pace, resulting in him getting lost in the noise and confusion. At least until Round 3 Uplink. There, Jurd was excellent at clutching fights and opening lanes for his team. The problem was that Splyce struggled on capitalizing on those openings as Millenium put up a strong defense. Jurd closed out strong in the second half when he dropped a quad kill that allowed MadCat to get a game-winning dunk.
