Red Reserve
Tries to pick up the slack
August 18, 2018
Skrapz attempted to pick up the pace in a 3-0 loss to eUnited on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships, dropping into the Loser's Bracket in the process.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz tried all he could to wake his team up, but the team's overall slow slaying made it impossible. This was best seen in Round 3 Capture the Flag on Flak Tower. In the first half, Skrapz was able to break into the eUnited base and found a clear shot at the flag. Skrapz's teammates, however, struggled to find any kills in mid-map to open a lane up for him to make the flag capture. By the time Skrapz finally grabbed the flag, eUnited had already worked their way back into their base to easily snap on Skrapz.
Hobbled performance in win
August 16, 2018
Skrapz struggled all throughout Red Reserve's 3-1 win over Mindfreak on Day 1 of CWL Champs.
ANALYSIS
Even though his team picked up the win in this series, Skrapz was never really a part of that at any point. He hobbled along behind the rest of his team in every round and could never find much of a groove in the game. He went slightly positive in the opening Hardpoint but then dove deep into negative territory the rest of the day. Once the team moves on to better competition, Skrapz will surely need to pick up his play.
Lands weak shots
July 30, 2018
Skrapz failed to make his presence felt in a 3-1 loss in the Losers Final at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Like the rest of his team, Skrapz struggled to slay out against his opponents in a tense series. While Skrapz has never been Red Reserve's main slayer, as he normally functions as the team's anchor, he failed to make a solid defense outside of Round 3 Capture the Flag. In the first half of Round 3 Capture the Flag, Skrapz was able to prevent several pushes from Rise Nation by holding around corners to blast double and triple kills. This helped his team spawn up to reinforce lanes in teamfights. However, that all quickly fell apart by the second half of the round as Skrapz' shots failed to find their mark.
Plays the objective in win
July 29, 2018
Most of Skrapz's contributions came on the objectives in the 3-1 win over eUnited on Day 3 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was a tough one for Skrapz and the rest of Red Reserve. They only managed to win two just two games, as eUnited dominated the map from start to finished. Skrapz first two respawn rounds, Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag, saw him focus on the objective more than anything else. He had a negative KD in each of the rounds - good for a combined 42/45 KD - but he did a lot of good on the objective. He had a 1:21 objective time in Round 1 Hardpoint, and had one of his team's flag caps in their 3-2 win - he also did a fair bit in the defensive stand in the second half of overtime. Round 4 Hardpoint was easily his best round. Skrapz and Rated were the duo that led them to a 180-78 lead (with Zer0 being a quality third man). Skrapz was excellent from beginning to end, even while eUnited came roaring back to make it close. He had 32 kills and 2:16 on the objective in the match-winning round win.
Somewhat inconsistent in win
July 28, 2018
Skrapz had his good and bad spots throughout the 3-2 win over Echo Fox on Day 2 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz had a slow start to Round 1 Hardpoint, but he picked it up towards the end of the round to really put the game on ice. His big push gave him a 35/31 KD, and he added a solid 1:23 on the objective in the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy was another win, and Skrapz played rather well. He was not one of their top guys - Rated and Joee were - but he was a very stable and reliable third man behind them. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him get Red Reserve out to an early lead, but it was one that did not last, as they lost the round. Skrapz had a really up and down Round 4 Hardpoint - he started incredibly slow, picked it up around the middle, and then fell right back down again. He ended up going 26/40 in the loss. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him pick it back up to be their second-best player in the ten game win. Rated was truly excellent, but Skrapz was quite good too, and the duo carried them to a win. Skrapz had the kill of the match, as he won a 1-vs-1 in Game 10 to keep Red Reserve alive.
Fades after first two rounds
July 27, 2018
Skrapz had a nice first two rounds, but faded quickly, as Red Reserve fell 3-1 to Rise Nation on Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz had a good first two rounds of this match, but he faded after that. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him lead Red Reserve in the early going. He ended up notching 30 kills and 1:02 on the objective, though the strong slaying of Rise Nation killed him often (30 deaths). He was not perfect, but he was their best player for large stretches, despite the elevated death count. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him be their best player again, though he had little support, and they lost in nine games. Round 3 Capture the Flag marked their first and only win of the match, but Skrapz began his sharp decline. He went just 16/23 in the round win, struggling to do much outside of helping the nice defensive stand in overtime to secure their win. Round 4 Hardpoint saw everyone struggle, as they lost 250-98. It was never close, and they were simply outplayed.
Baits for his team
July 5, 2018
Skrapz worked with his teammates in a 3-2 win on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz may not be a big playmaker, but his consistent slaying and support were invaluable to his team. By playing with his teammates, by baiting shots or scouting lanes and then letting his teammates pick up the shots, Skrapz was able to set up Red Reserve's signature map control. This was best seen in Round 4 Hardpoint on Ardennes Forest, a round Skrapz also slayed out in. Skrapz was key in securing spawns and rotations for his team by simply holding his own in gunfights. For example, during the first Bunker hill Skrapz was able to land a key double kill that secured Red Reserve's spawns for the hill while also banishing Team EnVyUs to the other side of the map.
Struggles after nice start
July 4, 2018
Skrapz's quality start did not last as Red Reserve were reverse swept by Team Kaliber on Day 1, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz had a solid support performance in Round 1 Hardpoint. Rated was the star of the show, and the rest of the team, Skrapz included, played support. He went 20/23 in the round, but had a strong 1:21 to pair with that. Round 2 Search & Destroy was his best round, as he was a big reason why they ran out to a 5-0 lead. He had the final kill in Games 3, 4, and 5, in what was a dominant three-game display. They went on to win 6-3. Round 3 Capture the Flag, Round 4 Hardpoint, and Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him fall off from his previous round performances, as he struggled to slay in each of the rounds. Team Kaliber won those three to cap off a reverse sweep, and Skrapz really struggled under their slaying power.
Baits for his teammates
June 27, 2018
Skrapz clicked with his teammates in a 3-2 win over Evil Geniuses on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz may not have been a stand-out player, but he worked well with his teammates to out-play Evil Geniuses. This largely involved Skrapz helping to pull off pinches by sticking close to Zer0, as was the case in Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 5 Search & Destroy. In the latter round, Skrapz' involvement was key as he was able to distract a frantic Evil Geniuses by playing power positions. In Game 11, for example, Skrapz played around the balcony above the Bomb B site, peppering shots into his opponents before his teammates pushed in to clean the site.
Gives his team room to play
June 18, 2018
Skrapz supported his teammates in a double Grand Finals loss to Rise Nation at CWL Anaheim, winning the first series 3-1 and the losing the second series 3-1.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz had the fundamentals locked down, but he couldn't bring the extra mile his team needed to succeed. Largely, Skrapz helped his team by supporting Joee's and Zer0's attempt to take control of the map and of spawns. This worked during respawn rounds in the first series, as Skrapz used his previous win over Luminosity Gaming to encourage his team. However, his aggression often saw him rush things, such as Skrapz attempting to pull Rise Nation's flag in the first Round 3 Capture the Flag without first securing a kill or tow. Minor misplays like that began to weigh down Red Reserve in the second series as Rise Nation refused to slow down.
Assists Joee's flanks
June 18, 2018
Skrapz provided close-range support in a 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming in the Losers Final of CWL Anaheim, sending the team to the Grand Finals for a rematch against Rise Nation.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz hasn't been dropping the heaviest of numbers, but he has been vital in Red Reserve's spawn control tactics. By pushing out lanes with Joee, both Skrapz and Joee are able to bully lanes and spawns, making the map unpredictable for their opponents. The only problem with the tactic is that it falters in Search & Destroy, formerly Red Reserve's best game mode, since Skrapz can do little else besides try and make way for his teammates. This often meant Skrapz fell early in Round 2 Search & Destroy to Luminosity Gaming's veteran game sense as he attempted to put pressure on flanks.
Excellent in win
June 17, 2018
Skrapz played well in the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, securing them a spot in the Winner's Bracket Final.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz was consistently solid in this match, even in the 250-248 Round 1 Hardpoint loss. He helped keep the team stable in the round, as his teammates went through their ups and downs. He went 28/25 with 1:30 on the objective in the losing effort. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him dominate with his sniper, constantly being a thorn in Luminosity's side. They had no answer for him, and for the majority of the round, he was the main difference between the two teams. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a nice win by them, as they dominated the kill feed and stifled the Luminosity offense. Skrapz was consistent, pacing them in kills (23) and playing a solid defensive game - he added a flag cap to his stat line, as well. Round 4 Hardpoint housed an impressive comeback from Red Reserve, and Skrapz was at the heart of it. He, Zer0, and Rated had big kills to get them to that coveted 250 mark.
Mostly dominant in nice win
June 16, 2018
Skrapz had plenty of positives to take away from the 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz had an excellent performance in this match. The only round in which he saw some struggles was Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he went just 18/20, though he had a strong second half in their only round loss. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him start the round as a monster on the objective as Zer0 handled the slaying, but he ended up putting together a strong two-way game as they won the round by less than 50 points. Skrapz went 24/27, with a stellar 2:06 on the objective in the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him dominate, as his sniping helped swing the map in Red Reserve's favor often in the 11-game win. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him go 38/35 providing strong slaying throughout the round. He really put it together late in the round, as they pulled away and one the round.
Lags behind the rest of his team
May 24, 2018
Skrapz struggled to land kills with a KD in a 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz has taken on the supportive role for his team as he continues to struggle in the slaying department. While Red Reserve has never know to be a slay heavy team, Skrapz's weaker KD in several rounds did dampen Red Reserve. This was best seen in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where Skrapz went 0/6 KD six games into the round. It was only when Skrapz pulled out a sniper and an AR was he able to finally land some kills.
Trips over himself
May 24, 2018
Skrapz floundered with 3-1 win over Team EnVyUs with a 57/73 KD on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Despite having only been with Red Reserve for two weeks, Skrapz has found a comfortable role for himself on the team. Skrapz played a solid support role for his team, attempting to help Zer0 in the backline while allowing Rated and Joee to push out and hit spawns. This allowed Skrapz to sit back and hold spawns. Unfortunately, Zer0 and Skrapz seemed disjointed playing together, as they often stacked on top of each other, handing Team EnVyUs free kills in some cases. Skrapz closed with a KD in Round 4 Hardpoint.
