Patches some problems
July 17, 2017
Zer0 fixes some mistakes with a 65/60 KD in a loss to eUnited on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 managed to fix his shots from earlier today, but still struggles with his coordination. Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback saw him drop a 35/32 KD thanks to a strong hold on the first Baseball Field. Typical for Splyce, Zer0 posted by booths and gunned down players from afar. Unfortunately, Zer0 couldn't carry that momentum into other hills as teammates trickled into points. Round 3 Uplink saw Zer0 struggle to break above even with a 22/22 KD. This was due to Splyce uncharacteristically playing defense instead of being their aggressive selves.
Desperately tries to find a fix
July 16, 2017
Zer0 gets paranoid as he struggles with a 41/56 KD in a 3-0 loss to Rise Nation on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Zer0, Splyce's MVP, truly struggled to make his presence known this series. So much so, that he was scoring some unprecedented negative KDs. This led Zer0 to changing his targeting dot several times in the series, desperately trying to fix his game. Unfortunately, it wasn't just his shots that were off. Zer0's teamwork became frantic as early as Round 1 Hardpoint, with members of Splyce splitting off and getting picked off. The worst of it was in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Retaliation. Zer0 was left several times in a 1-vs-1 as he either stood too far back, or his teammates just left him. It wasn't just Zer0 that was off, it was all of Splyce.
Only an average performance
July 16, 2017
Splyce put on an exemplary performance against Rise Nation on Day 2 of Group Yellow, but Zer0 was the weakest link in that performance, only notching an overall KD of 61/64.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 isn't holding his team back if Splyce's 3-1 victory over Rise Nation is any indication. Still, the victory likely could have been more decisive if Zer0 pulled more weight. Zer0 started Round 1 Hardpoint with a negative KD of only 20/27, although he did post 1:22 of objective time. Splyce, as a whole, stumbled in Round 2 Search & Destroy, considering how Rise Nation beat them 6-1, but Zer0 in particular only picked up a 5/6 KD as his single bomb plant in Game 1 got handily defused by Aqua. Zer0 would redeem himself somewhat in Round 3 Uplink, where an early toss in the first half cemented Splyce's early lead, and he actually managed to score a positive KD of 21/19 that round as well. Zer0 closed out the series in Round 4 Hardpoint with a 15/12 KD, cementing what was an easy victory for Splyce that round.
Background in win
July 16, 2017
Zer0 was out of the spotlight in the 3-1 win over Red Reserve on Day 2 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 was mostly a support player in the match, starting in Round 1 Hardpoint. He went 20/29, with a little over 40 seconds on the objective -- he was nothing special in the round win that saw Splyce overcome a solid Red Reserve lead. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Zer0 be a passenger in a 10-game loss to Red Reserve. Round 3 Uplink saw Splyce blow a 6-2 first half lead, and then win 8-6 with a last minute dunk -- Zer0 did not contribute any points, and went 22/24. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Zer0 still struggle to slay, going 20/25, but he did have a very solid 1:39 on the objective. The round was close, 250-224, so the objective time mattered -- also, he had a three piece to get his team to 250, coming up big despite an average round yet again in this tournament.
Comes up clutch in win.
July 15, 2017
Zer0 came up huge for Splyce in the 3-2 win over Red Reserve on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 was rather inconsistent, but he came up big when it mattered the most for Splyce. He led the team in Round 1 Hardpoint, a round that Splyce won with relative comfort. He went 31/18, with five defenses and 1:12 on the objective -- it was quite an excellent round for Zer0. He notched the final kill in Game 6 of Round 2 Search & Destroy, but the round was easily in the hands of Red Reserve. Round 3 Uplink was a Splyce blow out, winning 12-2. Zer0 contributed three points, but also went a paltry 21/26 in the round. Round 4 Hardpoint was a blow out in the opposite direction, with Splyce losing 250-99. Zer0 went 16/20 in the largely noncompetitive round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw Zer0 get just one kill, but it turned out to be the biggest kill of the match. He got the final kill in Game 9, winning the round and the match for Splyce -- he came up in an extremely clutch spot for them.
Oblivious in poor game
July 15, 2017
Zer0 loses his golden aim in a 1-3 loss to eUnited on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Zer0, the golden boy of Splyce, couldn't do much of anything in this series. With all his teammates performing poorly, he had absolutely no room to make the big plays he's become infamous for. More than that, Zer0's sights were completely limp, failing to find kills or any game impact at all. Thanks to eUnited's aggression, Zer0 had to do the one thing he's never done: play defense. This was simply an uncharacteristic series from one of the game's best players.
Loses series, but plays extremely well
June 19, 2017
Zer0 plays his best in with a 90/83 KD in a loss to Luminosity Gaming at the CWL Anaheim Championships.
ANALYSIS
As soon as the match ended, Zer0 hunched over in shock as Luminosity Gaming took the stage to receive the title of champion. This happened despite Zer0 probably playing some of the best Call of Duty of this season. Round 1 Hardpoint was won by a razor-thin 249-250 score that Zer0 actually helped clutch out. All round-long, Splyce and Luminosity Gaming were trading leads back-and-forth. But in the final moments, Zer0 was the one to rush to the final Hardpoint and get a fast kill to stall a few seconds. These seconds meant everything as Splyce flooded in to win the point. This was similar to Round 4 Hardpoint on Retaliation, a favorite map of Zer0's. While Zer0 lost the round, the map came down to some last-second rotations and a final gunfight between Zer0 and Classic. Though Zer0 lost the fight, the circumstances were nearly identical. If he had won, Splyce likely could won the round.
Finds kills across map
June 18, 2017
Zer0 mows down his European rivals with a 79/56 KD in a win over Epsilon eSports at the CWL Anaheim semifinals.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 didn't change too much to take down his European rivals in a surprise grudge match. Splyce played this series in their typical, aggressive fashion -- Jurd and Bance rushed Epsilon eSport's front and backline while Zer0 picked off the straggles. What did change was how many kills Zer0 dropped. Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback saw Zer0 drop an outstanding 40/32 KD thanks to a strong hold at first Bike Path and second Baseball hill. Zer0 would have an even better Round 2 Search & Destroy on Retaliation where he scored an utterly dominate 12/2 KD in an eight-game round. The map is a favorite of Zer0 thanks to the map's long lanes that compliment his assault rifles.
Beams down from afar
June 18, 2017
Zer0 continues to put up MVP-like performances with a 61/48 KD in a win over Bittersweet on Day 2 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 was, once again, Splyce's top slayer, though his impact on the game was much smaller than usual. The series became a hectic bloodbath after Splyce decided to match Bittersweet's speed and aggression, leaving Zer0 unable to build steaks but also allowing him to trade effectively. This was best seen in Round 1 Hardpoint where he scored a 27/20 KD, but didn't make the map-winning plays. Instead, he was responsible for Hardpoint control and securing kills. This was his role for most of the series as both Jurd and MadCat acted as Splyce's forward charge. All Zer0 had to do was pick off a weak and battered Bittersweet. Zer0 closed in Round 3 Uplink with a 27/23 KD.
Respawn slayer that was out-smarted
June 16, 2017
Zer0 hands in another great game despite a loss to Rise Nation on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 gave it his all in a surprisingly close series against Rise Nation. The loss came down to Rise Nation being the better Search & Destroy team where their cerebral guessing games forced the aggressive Splyce into a strange position. However, that same aggression is what allowed Zer0 to dominate in Round 4 Hardpoint. Starting with an early lead, Zer0 was able to chip away at Rise Nation until he got the Scorestreaks he needed by first Turbine. Zer0 was cocky early-on as he rotated to Turbine to set-up spawns before he was quickly slammed by Rise Nation. Despite all odds, Zer0 was able to melt Rise Nation for a seven killstreak that scored him full Scorestreaks that would easily put away the map in the late-game.
Bounces back from a sour Hardpoint performance to stomp FaZe Clan
May 30, 2017
Zer0 may have started off on the wrong foot during the Winners Finals against FaZe in the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 Playoffs, but he quickly got back into stride to deliver a decisive blow against FaZe Clan with an 80/60 overall KD.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 didn't have the best of beginnings against FaZe Clan, as Round 1 Hardpoint clearly indicated with Zer0's KD of 9/16. Round 2 Search & Destroy didn't see Zer0 fare much better in that round, as he only got a 3/6 KD, but Splyce ended up winning that round anyway. But the tables turned in Zer0's favor for Round 3 Uplink, where not only would Zer0 score four points of Splyce's nine, he also notched a killer KD of 30/18. Zer0 got into full stomping form during Round 4 Hardpoint, where he dropped a filthy 38/20 KD, helping Splyce secure a much needed victory over FaZe Clan 3-1 in the Winners Finals.
Stumbles after a highlight weekend
May 29, 2017
Zer0 wins the tournament over Luminosity Gaming in an uneven fashion by scoring an 85/94 KD at the CWL Pro League Championships.
ANALYSIS
Coming into the series, it seemed like it was going to be the Zer0-vs.-Octane show as the two slayers were the two most prominent players all weekend. However, it was Zer0 that faltered, not Octane. It was only through the efforts of Bance and Jurd that Splyce was able to survive the series. Essentially, Zer0 just couldn't match Octane's titanic game. The clearest example came in Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback where Octane was able to score a Warden while Zer0 floundered with a 24/31 KD. Zer0 made up for this performance in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Breakout by scoring a 10/2 KD in an eight-game map. This allowed Splyce to swing back the momentum, but Zer0 didn't make too much of an impact afterwards. Zer0 would close the weekend in Round 5 Search & Destroy with a 3/7 KD.
A true titan of Call of Duty
May 27, 2017
Zer0 gives a god-like performance with a 126/86 KD in a win over Enigma6 on Day 2 of the CWL Pro League Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Not enough praise can be given to Zer0's performance this series and this weekend. In every round except one, Zer0 was able to score the top KD of his team. Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback set the tone where Zer0 scored a 44/34 KD thanks to several massive killstreaks. Beyond the killstreaks, his Scorestreaks were huge game-changers in the final moments of the game as his Bombardment and Trinity Rockets prevented Enigma6 from capping points. Even in rounds Splyce lost, such as in Round 3 Uplink and Round 4 Hardpoint, Zer0 still gave titanic plays that slowed down Enigma6. In Round 4 Hardpoint on Breakout, Zer0 blew-apart Enigma6 on the first Graveyards hill thanks to some very smooth shots. Zer0 closed the series in Round 5 Search & Destroy with a 9/4 KD.
Support player in sweep
May 26, 2017
Zer0 played a nice support role in the dominant sweep of Evil Geniuses on day 1 of the Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 was often in the background for this match, but his support-based style of play was crucial to the win. He woke up after a slow start to Round 1 Hardpoint, and played the third to MadCat and Bance. Those three players were unstoppable as a group, and helped erase a 40-0 deficit. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him be a solid player, the third to Jurd and MadCat this time around. He was a key member of the team, and got the final kill in Game 2 as they won 6-1 to take a 2-0 lead. Round 3 Uplink was an absolute bashing. Splyce won 14-0, and totally shut down anything and everything Evil Geniuses tried to do. Zer0 had an excellent showing, going 33/20 with five points in the match-deciding blowout.
Was frustrated in sweep
April 23, 2017
Zer0 loses his cool with a 56/72 KD in a devastating loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 3 of Group Red at the CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 only needed one map win to place into the first seed of Group Red. Instead, Zer0 left the game lobby during Round 3 Uplink out of frustration. The maps were close, but a brew of misplays and poor shots saw Zer0 choke first place. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Uplink, both respawn rounds that Zer0 normally sweeps in, were awkward loses. Team EnVyUs played fast and loose with the map, forcing the somewhat rigid Zer0 to adapt to a scrappy game. Fights were up-close and personal with both sides trying to deny every point. Zer0, who play long-range and calculated, was caught off-guard by the overwhelming flood of Team EnVyUS players. Zer0 closed Round 3 Uplink with an 18/27 KD.
