Splyce
Stalks Evil Geniuses like his namesake
February 17, 2018
MadCat clearly was not going to take any more losses, especially to Evil Geniuses, as Splyce destroyed them in a 3-0 victory on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
MadCat slayed and slayed as he methodically picked apart the defense of Evil Geniuses in Round 1 Hardpoint as his KD soared into double-positive territory that round with 29/14. If that total was impressive to you, you'll be speechless to hear MadCat's quintuple-positive KD in Round 2 Search & Destroy, a nuclear-sized 10/2 that made Evil Geniuses look like amateurs. MadCat would score the highest KD of his team yet again in Round 3 Capture the Flag at 30/13, re-establishing himself as a dominant slayer for Splyce, easily shaking off the cobwebs that came from being short a teammate last week.
Limps through a bloody series
February 14, 2018
MadCat struggled to cover his team in a 3-2 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 5 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
While MadCat is rarely the top slayer in a lobby, his below-average KD hurt his team this series. The streaky Team EnVyUs were able to build of off MadCat's limp shots, while MadCat himself struggled to provide his team with proper protection. This was best seen in Round 5 Search & Destroy on London Docks. On every Splyce attack round, MadCat would hang back near dock-side ramp in order to watch out for flanks while Splyce hit Bomb B. However, MadCat would fail to catch SlasheR's flanks from mid-map due to his positioning, losing Splyce two critical rounds.
Exploits some minor flaws
February 13, 2018
MadCat fails to consistently counter Luminosity Gaming in a 3-0 loss on Day 4 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
MadCat was caught off-gaurd in their first series against Luminosity Gaming. The streaky Americans came full force at Splyce with hard short-range engagements and long-range picks. And while MadCat collapsed, unable to find a string of kills to pull his team ahead, he did puzzle out Luminosity Gaming's weaknesses. This was best seen in Round 2 Search & Destroy where, in Game 5, MadCat fragged mid-lane before falling back. This caused Luminosity to run straight into his sights. Then, in Game 7, MadCat would rush the hill in Ruins, a favorite place of Luminosity, before Octane could set-up. This gave MadCat a distinct advantage in a clutch 1-vs.-1 fight. Unfortunately, MadCat couldn't maintain this momentum the whole series.
Consistent force throughout win
February 8, 2018
MadCat had a very stable performance in the sweep win over Epsilon to open up Thursday's portion of the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
MadCat had an impressively consistent performance in this match, setting the stage for their easy sweep win. He was great from the beginning of Round 1 Hardpoint, helping give his team an early lead that they would never come close to relinquishing. He ended up with a 22/12 KD in the round as they waltzed to a 250-109 win. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him, Tommey and Felony dominate the kill feed, and lead Splyce to a win. He was a solid slayer in the round, and Epsilon struggled to get him off the map. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Spylce edge out a win late in the round, with Epsilon handling business early. MadCat was the only member of Splyce to show up in the first half, and that performance helped keep the lead close enough to come back from.
A bit shaken in loss
February 7, 2018
MadCat had a rough time during Splyce's 3-2 loss against eUnited on Tuesday in Week 3 of the CWL Pro League Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
MadCat definitely had it tough during Splyce's matchup against eUnited, and not having his normal teammate Jurd around certainly didn't help. MadCat did start strong in Round 1 Hardpoint, with the best KD of his team at 27/20, despite Splyce losing the round. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, he notched the second highest KD of his team at 10/6, demonstrating his prowess in the game mode alongside Tommey. MadCat struggled to keep pace with EUnited during Round 3 Capture the Flag, where MadCat went negative in KD with 18/26 and failed to earn any flag captures. Round 4 Hardpoint saw MadCat become the only member of Splyce to earn a negative KD that round, with 21/27. MadCat eventually rolled over when eUnited took down Splyce in Round 5 Search & Destroy, as he only scored a 3/6 KD.
Shuts down long-range
January 13, 2018
MadCat tried to cover lanes in a tough 2-3 loss to eUnited on Day 1 of CWL New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
MadCat and Splyce didn't stray far from their typical two assault rifles and two SMG setup, and for good reason. MadCat's sights on his assault rifle continue to dominate entire maps. Maps like Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him absolutely tear apart eUnited while holding spawns across the map, a critical point that gave Splyce full map control. Problems only occurred later on due to some strange eUnited shenanigans. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Clayster pull out Akimbo pistols to flank Splyce, taking MadCat completely off-guard. From then on, the aggressive hit-and-run tactics of eUnited tore through Splyce's defenses as MadCat struggled to spot out flanks in time to stop them.
Tries some old tricks
December 11, 2017
MadCat reverted back to an older style of play a bit too late in a 2-3 loss to Team Kaliber at the CWL Dallas Grand Finals.
ANALYSIS
MadCat was forced to go back to Splyce's "Infinite Warfare"-style of play with two assault rifles and two SMGs. Team Kaliber managed to catch Splyce by surprise with their triple assault rifle setup and their stun grenade spam, both of which disrupted Splyce triple SMG lineup. It would take until Round 3 Capture the Flag for MadCat to make the adjustment since Splyce weren't sure how Team Kaliber would play Round 2 Search and Destroy. The unpredictable underdogs made MadCat jumpy for most of the series. In Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy, MadCat would hang back and attempt to watch flanks, always fearing an imminent attack from Team Kaliber's Kenny. This uneasiness proved to be MadCat's undoing in the series, especially in Round 5 Search and Destroy.
Finds the game-winning kills
December 11, 2017
MadCat clutched up against OpTic Gaming to win a slot in the CWL Dallas grand finals.
ANALYSIS
MadCat can never be counted out. Between Jurd and Bance on SMGs and Tommey on the second assault rifle, MadCat was free to choose whatever weapon was needed to fit the situation. But despite what many pros are calling an "SMG meta," MadCat stuck close to his weapon of choice, the assault rifle. MadCat was beaming the entire series thanks to that choice. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, MadCat was even able to get two clutch kills thanks to his rifle. The double kill was massive as it opened up the map for Tommey to make a bold flag capture that won Splyce the map and the series.
Tried to clutch up in loss
December 10, 2017
MadCat performed well in the clutch, but Splyce lost to OpTic Gaming 3-2 regardless. The Day 3 match saw Splyce fall to the losers' bracket of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
MadCat put in a solid performance in each round, but he could not bring down OpTic Gaming in this one. Splyce got off to a hot start in Round 1 Hardpoint, winning the round 250-63. They dominated every facet, and MadCat provided a ton of kills on the hill to stop any OpTic runs and get Splyce back into the driver's seat. MadCat did a great job keeping his team alive in Round 2 Search & Destroy, winning a one on one with Splcye's back against the door -- it wasn't enough to stave off OpTic Gaming, however. Tommey went off in Round 3 Capture the Flag, but MadCat provided key support underneath him. He was a key reason why they went up 2-1. Despite losing the last two rounds to drop into the losers' bracket, he put up good performances in each round on an individual level. If Splyce want to make a losers' bracket run, MadCat will need to build on his CWL Dallas showing.
On fire in sweep
December 10, 2017
MadCat continued his strong run at CWL Dallas with another big showing in Splyce's 3-0 over Ground Zero in the winners' quarterfinals.
ANALYSIS
MadCat has been having quite the tournament this weekend and it only got better for him on Sunday. He started with a 16/6 KD in the Hardpoint round before finishing with 28 kills overall. While he started off slower in Search & Destroy, he eventually came alive in a big way with a 15/4 KD as Splyce could simply do no wrong in this one-sided series. They will now move on to face OpTic Gaming in the winners' semifinals.
Performswell in win
December 9, 2017
MadCat had a good game in the 3-2 win over eUnited on the second day of group play at CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint saw MadCat opt to focus on the objective rather than on the slaying, as his teammates Tommey and Bance did. He lapped up plenty of Hardpoint time in the round, in a very good performance from all of Splyce. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw MadCat start a little slowly, but really turn it on in the end. He broke out with a two kill performance in game six and kept it up to put Splyce up 2-0. MadCat was the only member of Splyce that showed up to Round 3 Capture the Flag, playing well with little support. Splyce ended up making a late push, but it was far too late to do anything about eUnited's lead. They would not have been even close without MadCat. Round 4 Hardpoint was a close affair until about halfway through, when eUnited pulled away. MadCat was rather average in this round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw MadCat play a solid support role behind Jurd's excellent play.
On the prowl for kills
August 19, 2017
During a grueling five-round series which saw Splyce knock Epsilon eSports out of the running for the 2017 CWL Championships on Day 4, MadCat almost consistently put up positive KDs and earned an overall KD of 92/77.
ANALYSIS
Like a hunter looking out for prey, MadCat put in the patience and endurance to play the long game against Epsilon eSports. He easily secured the best KD for Splyce during Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback at 30/23, and effective use of the Centurion payload near the end of the Barn Hardpoint helped secure his team's victory. Epsilon got the better of Splyce during Round 2 Search & Destroy, but MadCat still posted a positive KD of 11/7, staying alive to be a nuisance for Epsilon eSports. Round 3 Uplink was the only bad round for MadCat, where he couldn't score any Uplink points and went negative in KD with 22/24. MadCat effortlessly bounced back for Round 4 Hardpoint, notching a positive KD of 21/17 despite Splyce's loss that round. Finally, MadCat closed out the series and be one of the hands holding the dagger to Epsilon in Round 5 Search & Destroy on Throwback, where he'd help wipe Epsilon eSports off the map with a 8/6 KD.
Slow start in loss
August 12, 2017
MadCat started sluggishly in the sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 4 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss eliminated Splyce from competition.
ANALYSIS
MadCat was rather quiet in Round 1 Hardpoint, even as Splyce clawed their way back from the brink of a blowout to make it a 250-211 loss. He went 15/15 with 59 seconds on the objective, not moving the needle with either kills or Hardpoint time. He made up for it with a very active Round 2 Search & Destroy, despite the team losing 6-4. He had the a double kill to win Game 2, and had the final kill in Game 5. It was not all good for him in the round, though. Time ran out for MadCat to defuse the bomb in Game 1, and he was forced to kill himself in Game 9, because he was so outnumbered. Round 3 Uplink saw Splyce get completely blown out 15-3. MadCat was his team highest scorer (two points), and led his team in kills (20/22 KD ratio). It was a very underwhelming finish for Splyce.
More good than bad in Pool G loss
August 11, 2017
MadCat had plenty of bright spots in the 3-1 loss to Ghost Gaming on Day 2 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss dropped them to second in the group, but they still qualified for the playoffs this weekend.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was not very kind to MadCat, or Splyce as a whole. They were down early, and it stayed that way throughout. Ghost played a poised, diligent game, and Splyce could not run with them. MadCat went 19/22 with 24 seconds on the objective, struggling in all accounts. Round 2 Search & Destroy was their only win, and it was an amazing showing. They dominated, winning 6-1, with MadCat earning the final kill in the final two games to clinch the round win. Round 3 Uplink was close late in the second half, as they only trailed by one, but they ended up losing 8-3. MadCat went 24/24 with zero points. He put together a strong Round 4 Hardpoint, but that did not stop Splyce from blowing leads of 35-1. 98-16, 177-150 and 200-167, and losing the round in heartbreaking fashion.
Smashes his way into playoffs
August 10, 2017
MadCat closed pool play hot with a win over Millenium in Group G On Day 2 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
After a rocky first day, Splyce was able to enter into the playoffs brackets in a decisive manner. MadCat opened fast in Round 1 Hardpoint on Scorch. There, MadCat was brutal with his flanks, harassing Millenium from every angle until they were forced to put Moose on defense. The momentum carried over into Round 2 Search & Destroy where MadCat was able to share his glory with Bance with aggressive pushes. But by Round 3 Uplink, MadCat was forced to play smarter with Millenium's defense dialing up. Instead of trying to flank, he helped his team push in fights at defense.
