Leads the way in big win
August 13, 2017
SiLLy put together a 80/66 KD during eUnited's win over Allegiance on Saturday that put them in the winners semifinals of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy was the main catalyst for getting eUnited a big victory in this series against Allegiance on Saturday. He began with a respectable performance in Round 1 Hardpoint where he was excellent at securing rotations and kills at the same time, finishing with a 28/25 KD and 1:36 on the point. The same can be said for Round 2 Search & Destroy where he was picking up key kills all over the map during the team's win to put them up 2-0. While the team had just about no drone control in the Round 3 Uplink loss, they got right back into a groove in Round 4 Hardpoint where they easily blitz their way to victory. They'll now face Team EnVyUs in the winners semifinals.
Doesn't bring the pressure
August 13, 2017
SiLLy goes quiet with a 70/61 KD in a loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 4 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
While SiLLy may have had a massive weekend, he became shockingly quiet in this loss that sent eUnited to the Loser's Brackets. This wasn't a problem in Round 1 Hardpoint on Breakout since Prestinni, Arcitys and Clayster were all dominating the map. But the lack of presence hurt his team in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Throwback. Without SiLLy to bully Team EnVyUs, eUnited were often unable to gain map control, such as in Game 10 and Game 9. SiLLy had very strong opening in Round 3 Uplink on Precinct by being the first of his team to score a dunk. He was quickly set up a chain to rally three more dunks in. However, SiLLy then choked the lead in the second half due to a spawn trap that he couldn't break.
Nonexistent in loss
August 12, 2017
SiLLy really could not muster much of anything in the sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 4 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss eliminated eUnited from the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was SiLLy's best round, and he went 22/23 with 1:05 on the objective in a 250-213 loss -- that is not an awful round, but it should never be someone's best. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw SiLLy put together an awful showing, mustering a single kill in a 6-0 round loss -- it can hardly get worse than that. Round 3 Uplink was equally as bad. He did not score in the 12-10 overtime loss, and went 18/28. He was simply a nonfactor, and will have a long time to gestate on this rough final performance before Call of Duty: WWII comes out.
Gives a monster Search & Destroy
August 11, 2017
SiLLy blazed through Luminosity Gaming in a brilliant 3-1 win on Day 3 of the 2017 CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy has been brilliant in Search & Destroy even since Day 1 and continued to do so in this series. While Luminosity Gaming is considered notoriously weak at Search & Destroy, SiLLy was an unstoppable force as he clutched up insane 1-vs-2's and 1-vs-1's. SiLLy best play was easily Game 3 in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Scorch. Stuck in a 1-vs-2, SiLLy was able to clutch it by laying down in the middle of the fight, the bullets skimming past his head as he did so, and he melted two players. SiLLy also scored a seven-kill streak early in Game 4 thanks to an FTL Jump that flanked Slacked.
Fixes his faults to drop numbers
August 11, 2017
SiLLy rebounded in a quick win over Team Infused in Group C on Day 2 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy easily qualifies for playoffs this series, rebounding his weaker games from yesterday to reach the heights he's know for. Starting strong on Round 1 Hardpoint, SiLLy took a more laid back position, letting Clayster lead charges to scout before he came in to clean points. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a far more impressive performance with SiLLy dropping a 15/4 KD, an utterly dominant score that blasted Team Infused apart. In Game 8, SiLLy made an excellent play where he fell back to cover after seeing Alexx pop his Reactive Armor. He waited until Alexx's burned out before snapping a fast kill to win the round.
No laughing matter in win
August 10, 2017
SiLLy managed a 50/44 KD in eUnited's breezy victory over Lethal Gaming on Day 1 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy started off a bit slow in Round 1 Hardpoint, but as the round progressed, he put himself in the narrative in a big way. He even ended up with the least amount of deaths on his team while also tallying the second-most time on the point. Round 2 Search & Destroy was one of his better rounds, as his lethality was more than enough to help eUnited mount an incredible comeback. While they started off a bit shaky, he helped them get back into it with a nice two-piece in Game 4 to get back into the swing of things. They took the huge momentum of the 5-2 comeback into Round 3 Uplink where SiLLy slayed well from start to finish to pick up the win to give his team the breezy 3-0 sweep.
Gives a lackluster opening
August 9, 2017
SiLLy slayed where it counted despite a rocky performance in a win against Mindfreak on Day 1 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy had trouble finding his legs which allowed Mindfreak to make a close comebacks. Both Arcitys and Prestinni played more aggressively, forcing SiLLy to play defense. He help the Graveyard and Cell Block hills admirably in Round 1 Hardpoint on Breakout by playing back and holding spawns for his team. However, unlike Arcitys, SiLLy had problems manipulating spawns. Round 3 Uplink saw SiLLy score a 9/18 KD by the first half. Mindfreak easily kept the game close thanks to the lackluster score and defense. SiLLy evened out his score by end, allowing eUnited to sweep Mindfreak.
Inconsistent slaying performance hampers eUnited
August 3, 2017
SiLLy needs to learn to be more consistent with his slaying power, as he only notched an overall KD of 53/56 in eUnited's Winner's Final match in the Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy had moments of brilliance during eUnited's match against Team EnVyUs in the Winner's Finals, but those were easily cancelled out by lackluster play elsewhere. For example, early in Round 1 Hardpoint SiLLy was a slaying machine, but when he got to around the 10-kill mark he started losing control and only ended up with a mere 15/22 for the round. SiLLy didn't really have any standout moments in Round 2 Search & Destroy, only scoring a KD of 4/7 as eUnited only won a couple of games that round. Finally, in Round 3 Uplink, SiLLy had a chance to shine as he scored a very impressive KD of 34/27, but a failure to put any points on the board or even advance the ball towards the enemy goal did not help eUnited's odds at all.
Lags behinds his team
July 29, 2017
SiLLy gives a slower game with an 81/80 KD in a win over Enigma6 on Day 1 of the Stage 2 CWL Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy, the clutch factor of eUnited, had trouble finding his grove this series. He started Round 1 Hardpoint with a 19/25 KD, a lackluster score that was a result of some poor pushes. Often, he'd push without the support of his teammates, such as on the second Drill hill or on the third Hangar hill, and leave his team in the difficult position of retaking rotations. SiLLy evened out by Round 4 Hardpoint with a 26/25 KD, but his slower starts forced his team to step up. However, he helped clutch Round 2 Search & Destroy with a 9/5 KD by sticking close to his team.
Slays better than Clayster
July 17, 2017
SiLLy beams with a strong 70/55 KD in a 3-0 sweep over Splyce on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy was absolutely overshadowed by a screaming Clayster this series. Both Prestinni and SiLLy have been battling over supporting Clayster this weekend, but it seems like SiLLy has won that battle. He was aggressive as ever and was beaming with his SMG all series. Round 1 Hardpoint saw SiLLy cutting spawns as Clayster pressured flanks. Round 2 Search & Destroy on Retaliation saw SiLLy playing his SMG like an assault rifle, hitting players from across the map without fear. SiLLy closed Round 3 Uplink with a 27/13 KD.
Steady hand in win
July 16, 2017
SiLLy was a steady contributor in the sweep victory over Red Reserve on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy was very consistent in this win, and was a big reason why it happened. Round 1 Hardpoint saw eUnited sit above Red Reserve rather comfortably for the majority of the 250-143 win. SiLLy was not the star of the show, but he played well -- posting an 18/16 KD, and 1:21 on the objective. He also did his thing in Round 2 Search & Destroy, netting the final kill in Games 3 and 9, the latter winning the round for eUnited. Round 3 Uplink saw him play well throughout the round. He went 30/25, with three points -- two of those points came in the midst of a 6-3 comeback with less than a minute left. He tied the game at six, setting up the eventual game winning dunk.
Holds defense for big win
July 15, 2017
SiLLy stomps Rise Nation by doing very little with a 52/46 KD on Day 2 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
With Rise Nation playing a weak game, and eUnited playing extremely strong, SiLLy actually had to do very little to blow through his opponents. Both Prestinni and Clayster were constantly pushing out to cut Rise Nation open. This left SiLLy and Arcitys with simply holding spawns and points. Round 1 Hardpoint on Scorch saw SiLLy doing very well checking Aqua on points. Round 2 Search & Destroy, meanwhile, saw SiLLy coordinate well with his new teammates. In Game 5, for example, SiLLy wrapped behind Rise Nation, but in such a way that he kept close to his teammates in case of a bad teamfight. SiLLy closed in Round 3 Uplink with a 24/26 KD and two dunks.
Valiant effort in five-round loss
July 15, 2017
SiLLy posted a 93/85 KD during Saturday's Group Yellow 3-2 series loss against Red Reserve.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy started things strong with a 6/0 KD to begin Round 1 Hardpoint and notched a triple kill when the hill rotated to Drill on Scorch to take control of the hill. He got to the point of a 13/3 KD on the map, but wound up finishing just 22/20 with 1:27 of hill time as eUnited somewhat surprisingly fell behind 1-0 in the series. He started off hot in Round 2 Search & Destroy as well, going 5/1 early in the match. SiLLy perfectly timed an FTL Jump to cut down Seany just before he defused the bomb and finished off the map with the final kill as he himself was falling off the map to tie up the series at one a piece. He faded in each of the next two rounds, which turned out to be a split betwen the two teams, but returned to the foreground with a 12/5 KD in Round 5 Search & Destroy. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough as eUnited dropped the round 6-4 and the series 3-2.
Tears through Splyce's lines
July 15, 2017
SiLLy finds his stride in a 3-1 win over Splyce on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Despite his earlier series where he struggled with on the SMG, SiLLy absolutely obliterated Splyce with it this series. The nearly invincible European team melted under SiLLy's sights as he beamed them down an E-Rad. Round 3 Uplink on Precinct was a bloodbath for SiLLY as he posted an absurd 34/19 KD and a dunk that caused Splyce to look utterly limp. While the slaying helped, SiLLy's smart movement is what truly clutched the round. Instead of moving the ball through tickets, he forced the ball through the faster route in the streets.
Painfully limps to the end
July 14, 2017
SiLLy limps with a 64/82 KD in a 3-1 win over Rise Nation on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Both SiLLy and Arcitys had very slow starts in every round, mainly due to SiLLy's new role as an SMG player. The slow start was most predominately seen in Round 1 Hardpoint on Retaliation. SiLLy would post an absurdly low 0/10 KD by the first Building Hardpoint, giving Rise Nation an early fifty-point lead. While SiLLy evened out his score with a 16/23 KD, the rough start forced eUnited to push themselves. Importantly, Round 3 Uplink saw SiLLy post a poor game with a 16/31 KD. The awful score sacked Prestinni's impressive 39/29 KD and cost eUnited the round.
