Excellent Hardpoint in win
April 21, 2018
Priestah had excellent Hardpoint performances in the 3-2 win over Lightning Pandaz on Day 2 of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Priestah had some great rounds in this one, namely in both Hardpoint rounds. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint saw him finish with 30 kills in each, and with 2:01 in the first round and 1:35 in the fourth round. He put in two absolutely dominate showings, despite the loss in Round 4 Hardpoint. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him play rather well, but not up to that level. He went 17/17, with two flag caps, in the 6-3 win. His two Search & Destroy rounds saw him play rather quiet, though Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him have a clutch moment. He had a ½ KD in as game six started, but he got two kills to clutch a one vs. two to put them one win away from victory.
Good outweighs the bad in win
April 21, 2018
Priestah had a strong overall performance in the close 3-2 win over Rise Nation on CWL Seattle's first day.
ANALYSIS
Priestah was more good than bad in this match. His two worst rounds Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 4 Hardpoint saw him have bright spots regardless. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him net just four kills in 10 games during the loss, and he struggled to slay with consistency in Round 4 Hardpoint (27/26), alongside 52 seconds of Hardpoint time. He was not bad in the fourth round, but he still could not break out. The rest of his performance was excellent, though. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him play a very consistent and solid two-way game, netting 27 kills to 22 deaths, and over 1:30 on the hill. He was a big reason why they were close early on, and why they ran away with it late. His second-half performance in Round 3 Capture the Flag was excellent. They trailed 1-0 early and that stood for the majority of the round until a late push by FaZe gave them three caps to win it. Priestah dominated from the second half on, and his 20 kills led the lobby. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him be a key part of the win, as they won 6-1. The middle of the round was all him, as he had an eight killstreak capped off by an ace in Game 5.
Takes control over the second Championship series
April 9, 2018
Priestah swung the second series in a back-to-back Grand Finals victory over OpTic Gaming at CWL Stage 1 Playoffs, winning both series 3-2.
ANALYSIS
Priestah's flex role was more than able to take OpTic Gaming thanks to his confident gameplay. While helping his team in the first set, he didn't really begin to dominate until the second series. In fact, he was the core reason FaZe Clan was able to steal the Grand Finals. In the second Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks, Priestah pinned down OpTic Gaming thanks to his AR before diving into hills with his SMGs. This allowed Priestah to begin hot with killstreaks that gave him Scorestreaks, which he then used to snowball more killstreaks to get even more Scorestreaks. His impeccable timing and game sense allowed for miraculous plays in Round 4 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, a map FaZe Clan is miserable at, as he popped in and out of the hill to snap kills and get streaks. This then all culminated in Round 5 Search & Destroy where his AR skills allowed him to rip OpTic Gaming apart thanks to a series of smokes and frags from his teammates.
Begins the reverse-sweep
April 9, 2018
Priestah decimated in the second half in a 3-2 win over Luminosity Gaming in the Loser's Finals at the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Priestah can just find plays even in the darkest circumstances. Easily the MVP of this series, Priestah helped his team regain in Round 3 Capture the Flag before carrying the reverse-sweep for his team. Priestah's flex role of ARs and SMGs allowed him to snap kills to open up lanes before quickly stealing flags, ending the map with a 21/12 KD. Priestah carried the momentum into Round 4 Hardpoint where he was able to help ZooMa flank lanes. But Priestah's shining moment came in Round 5 Search & Destroy when he was able to get a 7/0 KD by Game 4, securing Scorestreaks to clutch a flawless map.
Pressures enemy with fast game
April 8, 2018
Priestah blitzed down Team Kaliber in a 3-0 win on Day 3 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Priestah's flex role and speedy movement continues to be an essential linchpin in FaZe Clan's war machine. Priestah started Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks playing a defensive role, holding Hardpoints and spawns to out-rotated Team Kaliber in the second set of rotations. Importantly, Priestah would also gain Scorestreaks on his defense, allowing FaZe Clan to clutch the map win. His speedy was vital in Round 3 Capture the Flag on Flak Tower where he secured the series win. After ZooMa made a miraculous run with Team Kaliber's flag in the second half of Overtime, Priestah was able to defend replays so he could rebound and score the flag just under the time lime.
Strong game in win
April 7, 2018
Priestah had quite the game in the 3-2 win over Team EnVyUs in the first loser's round of Day 2 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Priestah had quite a good showing in this match, right from Round 1 Hardpoint. Priestah was a monster two-way player, netting over 30 kills and two minutes on the objective. While his strong two-way performance was a big reason they got to 249, it was bigs plays from Huke and Classic that allowed Team EnVyUs to get to 250. It was a wild loss, but Priestah was excellent. He was a support play in Round 2 Search & Destroy, and acted a key cog behind ZooMa and Replays. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him return to a more central role, netting solid 18 kills. He was a strong defender, and they pitched a shutout, in large part due to him. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him see some struggles for the first time. He managed to have a sub-1.00 KD (29/30), never really getting off on the right foot in the round. He did, however, do an excellent job on the objective, getting over 1:30 on the Hardpoint. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him return to form, getting double-digit kills in the round.
Saw some struggles in the loss
April 7, 2018
Priestah did not have his best stuff in the 3-1 loss to Team Kaliber on Day 1 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a solid one from Priestah, despite his 37/38 KD. He had over a minute on the objective, and his slaying tied him with second on the team. While he struggled to go on any sustained runs with his slaying, he still helped eek out a win for FaZe Clan. He faltered more after that, however. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a tough one for him, as he managed to go 1/7 through the first seven games of the round. He picked it up late, getting the final kill in Game 8, and two kills in Game 9, but they were too deep in the hole to come out of that round. The final two rounds were entirely forgettable, as he managed just 13 kills in Round 3 Capture the Flag, and had a 27/39 KD in Round 4 Hardpoint.
Comes up short at worst possible moment
March 31, 2018
Priestah picked the wrong time to throw up a clunker during FaZe Clan's 3-2 loss to Team Kaliber in Pool B at CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Priestah book-ended this series with two performances that couldn't have been any different. He was on fire to open up the first Hardpoint, posting an 18/8 KD in the opening moments. This was more than enough to get his team an early win, but it's about how you start. Fast forward to Round 5 Search & Destroy and anything good he did throughout this series was completely thrown away with his 2/10 performance. He didn't pick up a single kill until Game 7 of the round as his team was struggling to stay above water. They may have gotten to a Game 11, but with some more help from Priestah early on, they could have flipped their fortune here in this series.
Preaches the skills of FaZe Clan
March 26, 2018
Priestah carried the torch of FaZe Clan with a solid, dependable performance as FaZe Clan snatched a series victory away from Luminosity Gaming 3-1 on Thursday of Week 8 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Priestah simply had a solid series against Luminosity Gaming, even in the one round FaZe Clan lost. Even when Luminosity Gaming stole a Round 1 Hardpoint victory away from Priestah's team by less than 30 seconds, he still notched a positive KD of 33/32 and 46 seconds of hardpoint control time. Priestah helped turn things around for FaZe Clan in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he tallied a cool 9/7 KD as he gunned down Slacked in a tense Game 10 to clinch the round. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, Priestah was the star slayer, getting the most kills of his team with a KD of 23/18, clearing the way for his teammates to run away with four flag captures. Finally, in Round 4 Hardpoint, Priestah stood like a lead weight upon the hardpoints, scoring the most hardpoint control time of his team at 2:03 while also chalking up a nifty positive KD of 23/19.
Balanced contributions in win
March 21, 2018
Priestah contributed in multiple ways to the 3-1 win over UNILAD on Day 1 of Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Priestah did not always contribute in the same way, but his contributions were definitely felt throughout the match, except for Round 3 Capture the Flag. The CTF round was their sole round loss, and it was his worst round individually. He struggled to do much of anything, finishing 17/19. He could not string together any kills, and was largely lost in the shuffle of UNILAD's strong performance, especially in the second half. The rest of his performance was great, however. Round 1 Hardpoint was more support-based, but he was key to both wins. The first round saw him go 28/28 but have a whopping 1:35 on the objective. He was one of the team leaders in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as he and ZooMa paced the team in kills. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him be a team leader again, as his 31/24 KD helped FaZe Clan keep their lead away from a strong Moose and wuskin duo. Overall, his contributions came in multiple ways, and his balanced and versatile play was a key to the win.
Overcomes iffy first round
March 17, 2018
Priestah did not have the best start, but he certainly finished well in the sweep win over Team EnVyUs on Day 3 of Week 3 of CWL Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Priestah did not have the best performance in Round 1 Hardpoint, but he absolutely made some contributions. His 27 kills tied for most on the team, but he died 30 times. His kills certainly helped, but he struggled to make them in succession. His team was more than capable of getting kills behind him, though. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a similarly dominant performance, with them winning 6-1, and a similar support-based role for Priestah. His best round, by far, came in Round 3 Capture the Flag. He led his team early on in the first half, netting eight kills. He had double-digit kills by the end of the half, and finished 22/15, with plenty of strong stands on the defensive side. He had a huge use of his Fighter Pilot to keep the lead at 2-0, and basically secure the win.
Amazing last-round performance
March 16, 2018
Priestah had a middling performance, but picked it up with an incredible late-game performance in the 3-1 win over Evil Geniuses on Day 2 of Week 3 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
The first three rounds of this match were a different breed than the final, fourth round of their 3-1 win. He had a nice start, putting together a 30/31 KD alongside a whopping 2:14 on the objective. While he was never on the front lines of this round, he was a very solid player on the Hardpoint, and did enough slaying to keep Evil Geniuses at bay. The next two rounds saw Priestah barely be involved. He turned it up for Round 4 Hardpoint, however, netting 12 kills before FaZe Clan even got to 100 points. He also had a eight-kill streak as FaZe got their 146-60 lead. He was excellent finishing strong to a 36/23 KD, even as Evil Geniuses made it close, getting to 226 points before FaZe Clan finished the win.
Gets going too late to save his team
March 10, 2018
Priestah's uneven performance was rectified too late to do any good for his team, as FaZe Clan lost to OpTic Gaming 3-1 on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Priestah had a slow start in Round 1 Hardpoint, where he went barely negative in KD with 23/25 in a close match that somehow wound up running away from FaZe and into OpTic's arms late game. Priestah had his moment in the sun in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he picked up a game-winning kill on Scump to notch an overall triple-positive KD of 6/2. Priestah would seesaw into negative KD territory in Round 3 Capture the Flag, as he went negative again in KD with 20/22 and no flag captures to his name. Priestah attempted to turn up the heat on OpTic Gaming by dropping a massive 40 kill bomb onto their heads with a 40/29 KD, but at this point it was too little, too late as OpTic grabbed the victory almost literally at the last second.
Shows off his varied strategies
March 9, 2018
Priestah flexed his versatility in a 3-0 sweep of eUnited on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Priestah was able to bounce from rifles to SMGs with no punishment from eUnited. His aggression and flexibility stuffed eUnited has he was able to constantly poke holes in their defenses with a series of flanks and headlong rushes. This was best seen in Round 2 Search & Destroy where bounced from ARs to SMGs from game to game. Priestah's versatility allowed him to keep eUnited on their toes. For example, in Game 6 Priestah scored two kills by playing around bomb sites, but in Game 9 he'd simply rush eUnited to land two clutch kills.
Fades a bit in win
February 15, 2018
Priestah had a very nice first two rounds, but faded down the stretch of the 3-1 win over Epsilon eSports during the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1 play on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy were where Priestah shined in this one. In the former, he was a cog in a three-headed attack alongside Attach and ZooMa. He had a 29/25 KD, and was big in forcing the Epsilon offense into bad positions. They had superior map control because of their slaying, and Priestah was a big part of that. He was excellent in Round 2 Search & Destroy, and showed up on the final kill cam in the first two rounds. He also won Game 6, with two key kills forcing Epsilon to run out of time before they defused the bomb. He faltered in Round 3 Capture the Flag, as all of FaZe did. They struggled to get any of their offense going, as Epsilon's excellent gun play got the better of them time and time again. He was unimpressive in Round 4 Hardpoint, but he provided just enough support behind Attach, ZooMa and Replays in order to squeak out a 250-243 win. He was not a consistent force in this one, but he did enough throughout the match to help FaZe win.
