Red Reserve
Officially rejoins Red Reserve
September 18, 2017
Rated will team with Red Reserve to begin the Call of Duty: World War II season, the organization announced on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
It a bit of a twist, Rated will return to the team he initially left near the end of August, this time with a cavalry of European talent including Joee, Zer0, and Joshh. While the chemistry concerns are well documented by this point, this is a team with immense amount of talent and should easily be among the top teams in Europe.
Free Agent
New team to debut for CoD: World War II
September 11, 2017
Rated will be teaming with Joee, Zer0 and Joshh to start the new competitive season.
ANALYSIS
There might not be a better team in Europe than this one in terms of pure slaying potential and skill. But make no mistake, this lineup isn't a guaranteed lock, thanks in part to the egos that are on the team. If this lineup can play together as one, it will be one of the best in Europe, and quite possibly one of the best in the world. But it's a big "if", as Rated is certainly a vocal player (to put it nicely) while both Joshh and Joee have a known history of clashing with one another in the past.
Heading into free agency
August 24, 2017
Rated will be a free agent heading into the next iteration of the game, the player announced via Twitter.
ANALYSIS
Rated will join a long list of available free agents heading into Call of Duty: World War II, but at the moment, he's arguably the best player currently without a contract from Europe. Rated has proven to be an excellent slaying threat for any team, but he has lashed out against teammates and competitors on more than one occasion, earning a bit of a reputation as a loose cannon. He won't be winning any kindness awards, but he may help a prospective team win a title, and as such Rated is expected to find a team before the start of the next competitive season.
Up and down in loss
July 16, 2017
Rated struggled with consistency in the sweep defeat to eUnited on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Rated could not find his footing in a poor Round 1 Hardpoint. The round saw Red Reserve never really have a chance to get into it. They were dominated rather easily, and lost 250-143. He went 12/22, with 29 seconds on the objective -- it was poor on a team, and individual, level. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw all of Red Reserve's offense lie in the hands of Urban, with Rated playing support to him. His best round was the final one, Round 3 Uplink. He was not strong on the drone, as he scored zero points, but he went 28/22 in the round. He slayed well, but it was not enough to stop Red Reserve from blowing a 6-3 lead with less than a minute left on the clock.
Solid in loss
July 16, 2017
Rated played well in the 3-1 defeat to Splyce on Day 2 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Rated had a solid Round 1 Hardpoint, though he did not slay as well as Splyce did. He had 29 kills, but he paired that with 34 deaths, and he also peppered in 1:00 on the objective. He played well, but Splyce just played better as a team as they overcame Red Reserve's early lead to win the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Joee dominate, and Rated played a background role in the round. Round 3 Uplink saw Red Reserve fight back from a 6-2 deficit, only to lose in heartbreaking fashion by way of a last second dunk. Rated was the only member of his team to notch a positive KD ratio (22/17), and he added two points to the comeback effort. Rated and Joee were the leaders in the team's 250-224 loss in Round 4 Hardpoint. Their teammates did not contribute much, which certainly hurt their efforts. Rated had an excellent two-way game, slaying well (24/17 KD) and putting in a solid performance on the objective (1:41). It was a much closer loss than the 3-1 round score suggested for Red Reserve.
Disappointing in loss
July 15, 2017
Rated had a match to forget in the 3-2 loss to Splyce on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Rated did not have his best performance in the loss to Splyce. Round 1 Hardpoint was tough for all of Red Reserve. They could not overcome a solid Splyce performance. Rated went 21/27, with 1:03 on the objective. It was a solid objective performance, but he did not slay well, which was Red Reserve's biggest issue. He was a background character in the Round 2 Search & Destroy victory, as Joee and Seany did the heavy lifting in the round. Round 3 Uplink saw Red Reserve get blown out 12-2, and Rated put in a poor performance. He went 18/27, and scored no points in the tough round loss. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Red Reserve make up for it with a blow out win, 250-99. Rated did not slay well even in the blow out, going 16/17, but he did notch over 1:40 on the objective in the win. Round 5 Search & Destroywas Rated's best round, but it was not enough to overcome Splyce in the 6-3 loss.
Impressive in victory over Rise Nation
July 15, 2017
Rated posted a dominant series in Red Reserve's 3-2 victory over Rise Nation in Friday's Group Yellow action, finishing with a 92/61 KD.
ANALYSIS
Rated pieced together a strong series, starting things off with a seven killstreak to close out Round 1 Hardpoint and collecting the most hill time in the lobby. He backed that up with a 6/3 KD on Round 2 Search & Destroy, adding two bomb plants for good measure. He added three points and a 26/21 KD on Round 3 Uplink, but didn't receive enough support from his teammates -- who all finished negative. Rated shined when the hill rotated to Drill on Scorch during Round 4 Hardpoint, posting a five killstreak the first time through and another four killstreak the second time. However, it wasn't enough as Rise Nation forced a fifth game. Rated was up to the challenge, notching a 6/2 KD with three bomb plants and a key "ninja defuse" in a 1-vs-4 situation to complete a second 6-1 drubbing in Search & Destroy and a 3-2 series victory.
Slays but doesn't slay smart
June 25, 2017
Rated makes mistakes that lose him the series to Epsilon eSports at the CWL Sheffield Championships.
ANALYSIS
Rated could slay against Epsilon eSports, but the tiny mistakes he made in a stressful series are what lost him the game. On top of that, Epsilon eSports were hot on their gunplay in this series. Round 1 Hardpoint on Scorch was a difficult series that saw Rated take an early lead. He secured the first two Hardpoints, and later Drill and Hangar points, but was slightly slow on watching his flanks. This allowed Epsilon eSports to pinch off of points. This was similar to Round 2 Search & Destroy where, again, Rated was just a second too slow to react to Epsilon eSports. Round 3 Uplink saw Rated make some more serious misplays, mainly in the second half. Rated tried to sneak a dunk with his Active Camo, but used it while he was being pre-fired by accidentally running into Epsilon eSports' sights.
Cuts down his oppenents
June 25, 2017
Rated burns through Fnatic in a 3-1 win at the CWL Sheffield loser's finals.
ANALYSIS
The controversial Rated brought another strong game for his team with his strong gun skills. This was best seen, almost predictably, in respawn rounds where Rated was to free to slay at will. Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback saw him and Urban have excellent map control by just slaying out. A key example is the second Barn hill where Rated and Urban immediately burn through Fnatic after they had just taken the point. The only round Rated struggled in was in Round 3 Uplink on Frost, a map that Red Reserve struggled with in general. The tight corridors forced Red Reserve to clump up too much for Rated's comfort.
Slow start in win
June 25, 2017
Rated was a bit slow in the first round, but Red Reserve still swept Millenium out of CWL Sheffield on Championship Sunday, to keep their loser's bracket run alive.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was largely the Joee and Urban show. Rated and Seany were average as Joee and Urban carried them to a 100-39 lead, in which the other two began to pick it up. Rated had a nice triple-kill to push them over the coveted 200-point mark, and get them on the home stretch, in what ended up being a 250-143 victory. Rated earned team-lows in both kills (24) and objective time (44 seconds). Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Rated get the final kill in game two in a back and forth round that saw Red Reserve win in 11 games. Rated put his slaying game on in Round 3 Uplink, going 26/22 with the final point to put the nail in Millenium's coffin.
Slays despite bad calls
June 24, 2017
Rated makes some strange plays in a win over Supremacy on Day 1 of CWL Sheffield.
ANALYSIS
Rated gave a solid performance, but he make some odd calls this series, too. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Rated work well with Joee, slaying out on important hill but neither slaying on Seany's level. Round 2 Search & Destroy showcased Red Reserve's weakness for the game mode as Rated made some bad plays. In the last three games, Rated was always first blood for Surpemacy as he tried to pull some bold flanks with some poor timing. This was best seen in Game 9 where Rated was out by himself tagging up Supremacy over by Bomb A, only for Rated's teammates to be be planting at Bomb B. This meant Rated was quickly and easily dropped by a stacked Supremacy.
A mixed series
June 24, 2017
Rated had a rocky opening game in a loss to eRa Eternity on Day 1 of CWL Sheffield.
ANALYSIS
Rated may be the most consistent slayers for Red Reserve, but he still struggled at times against the new eRa Eternity. He would start with a fairly dominate map win in Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback. Rated got an early seven killstreak during rotations into the first Baseball Field hill. Not only would the killstreak secure the hill and give Red Reserve a lead, but the Scorestreaks prevented eRa Eternity from making a comeback in the second set of hill rotations. Rated faltered in other rounds, especially in Round 3 Uplink by missing a one-point throw early in the game.
Re-joins Red Reserve
May 18, 2017
Rated will join Red Reserve, the organization announced on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
It never made sense for Rated to wallow in free agency for long, as the player was easily one of the best candidates available after he left eLevate earlier this week. However, it was a bit of a surprise to see Rated return to the team he started with in the earlier part of the year: Red Reserve. The often boisterous slayer will certainly improve the team, but it remains to be seen if his presence will be enough to help Red Reserve re-qualify for Stage 2 of the CWL Global Pro League after falling into the relegation rounds.
Free Agent
A solid Uplink performance cements eLevate's win
May 15, 2017
Despite some weak Hardpoint rounds, Rated eventually puts on a show in the other rounds, particularly Uplink, notching an overall KD of 69/60 to help eLevate defeat Red Reserve 3-2 on Day 3 of Group Green of the CWL Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Rated clearly has some weak game modes he needs to work on, but his strengths more than make up for them. His weak rounds were the Hardpoint rounds, as during Round 1 Hardpoint he only notched a KD of 13/16 while only getting 31 seconds of objective control time. But Rated bounced back during Round 2 Search & Destroy where he'd notch a 9/5 KD and a bomb plant and defusal on top. Rated's strongest round, though, was unquestionably Uplink, where he'd put half of eLevate's eight points on the board and notch a KD of 25/19 to boot. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Rated slump again with a KD of 13/16 although he improved his objective control time with 1:05 on the hill. Rated closed out strong during Round 5 Search & Destroy with a strong 7/4 KD, three bomb plants, and two defusals.
Leaving eLevate
May 15, 2017
Rated will leave eLevate, the player announced on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Color us surprised. One day after helping eLevate achieve third place in Group Green, thereby automatically guaranteeing his team a spot in Stage 2 of the CWL Global Pro League, Rated announced his free agency via Twitter, saying he has "hit the lowest point in my COD career." It sounds like there's more going on than just bad blood with eLevate, but so long as Rated is mentally willing to put in the time, there's no doubt he is one of the best available free agents, regardless of region, at the given moment. Where he ends up will an interesting story to follow prior to the start of Stage 2.
