Turned it on after slow start
July 7, 2018
Priestah did not start the match well, but he was on fire once he found his groove in the 3-2 win over Team Kaliber on Day 3, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Priestah had a really slow start to this match, struggling through Round 1 Hardpoint (he went 24/31 in the 250-217 loss) and most of Round 2 Search & Destroy. He picked it up for the last two games of the round, netting the final kill in both game ten and eleven to complete their mini-comeback. Round 3 Capture the Flag was the only real blowout of the match, and it went in FaZe's way. They won 7-2, dominating the round from start to finish, and Priestah played a role in that. He led the lobby with 25 kills and had two flag caps on top of it. He was stellar both offensively and defensively, and it helped FaZe completely dominate both halves of the round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw FaZe run out to a 150-70 lead before losing 250-202. Priestah was their best player joint-leading the team with 31 kills and leading the team in Hardpoint time by a wide margin (1:34). He fought valiantly against the comeback, but Team Kaliber were too strong to be stopped. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw Priestah, Attach, and ZooMa all play excellently, as the trio led them to a win in 10 games.
More support than not in win
July 6, 2018
Priestah found himself in a support role for the majority of the sweep win over Echo Fox on Day 2, Week 4 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Priestah had a rather slow start to Round 1 Hardpoint, especially in the slaying department. He only went 15/18 in the round. While he was a pretty inactive slayer, he was a very active player on the Hardpoint. He had 1:34 there, good for second on his team and in the entire lobby. His team won by a wide margin (250-54) and his objective-based performance was a big part of that dominating win. He continued to play a reserve role in the 11-game Round 2 Search & Destroy win, filling in the blanks left by ZooMa and Attach. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him play a reserve role for a big part of the round, though he turned it on in the latter stages of the second half to keep Echo Fox off the board in the 2-0 win. He ended up going 20/16 in the final round of the match.
Dominant slayer in sweep
June 28, 2018
Priestah was a nearly unstoppable slayer in the sweep win over Splyce on Day 2, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Priestah had an incredible slaying performance in this match, and that began right from Round 1 Hardpoint. The round was a back-and-forth affair, as FaZe Clan won 250-231. Priestah was on fire from the get-go, as Splyce were led to an early lead by Joshh and Bance. His slaying helped keep them afloat, and keep them close during the ebbs and flows of the round. He ended up netting a lobby high 38 kills (alongside 27 deaths), and 1:28 on the objective, putting together an incredible round. He was all over the map, and they definitely do not pull off a win without him. He continued his strong slaying in Round 2 Search & Destroy. He was the best player on FaZe, a team that put together a near perfect performance. They won 6-1, and the only loss was due to time expiring before they could defuse the bomb. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him prioritize the objective a little bit more than his slaying, as he netted 19 kills and three flag caps, in the 6-1 win. Overall, Priestah was excellent.
Search & Destroy star, but struggles elsewhere
June 27, 2018
Priestah's only good round came in the Search & Destroy round of the 3-1 loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 1, Week 3 of Division A of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Priestah's best round, by far, was Round 2 Search & Destroy. He easily was their best player, as he was the only player in the lobby to hit the double-digit mark in their only round win. It was a dominant display for both Priestah and Team EnVyUs; they lost three games, but their game wins were extremely easy ones. Preistah struggled to do much of anything in the respawn rounds, however. His best one was Round 3 Capture the Flag, and he had a 17/18 KD in that round. Round 1 Hardpoint (21/27 KD, 25 seconds of Hardpoint time), and Round 4 Hardpoint (20/26 KD, 1:01 of Hardpoint time) saw him have his moments, but struggle overall, especially in the slaying department.
Overcame slow start in close win
June 17, 2018
Priestah did not have the best start, but played well overall in the 3-2 win over Ghost Gaming on Day 2 of CWL Anaheim, securing their spot in the winner's bracket.
ANALYSIS
Priestah did not have the best start to this match, as he went just 19/27 in their Round 1 Hardpoint loss. FaZe led comfortably for a large portion of the match, but Ghost Gaming eventually came back and their strong depth just overran FaZe, handing FaZe a round loss. Round 2 Search & Destroy was much better for Priestah, as he was a part of the three-headed attack alongside Replays and Attach that carried the offense for FaZe Clan. Round 3 Capture the Flag was akin to his first round performance, as he really struggled under the strong slaying performance from Ghost Gaming. He went 11/24, as FaZe Clan and Priestah were totally flummoxed by Ghost Gaming. They could not muster any offense in the 1-0 loss. Round 4 Hardpoint was his best respawn round by a mile, as he went 34/27 with 1:15 on the objective. He carried the offense early on but had absolutely no help from his teammates. He ended up keeping the door open for them, and FaZe Clan ran away with the round once his teammates woke up. Round 5 Search & Destroy was similar to the other Search & Destroy round - he, Replays and Attach did most of the work in the 6-2 win.
Some good moments, some bad moments in loss
June 16, 2018
Priestah had peaks and valleys in the 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Priestah was dominant in the early portions of Round 1 Hardpoint, as he helped keep FaZe Clan in the close round in the early goings. He fell off, though, as Red Reserve took the lead. FaZe would mount a comeback but Priestah never really found his footing again, going 28/30 in the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him continue his middling ways, as Attach and ZooMa led them to their 6-5 loss, and Priestah provided support behind them. He was a key part of their Round 3 Capture the Flag win, as he had 22 kills, good for second in the lobby. He and ZooMa were slaying machines, and it was a big reason why Red Reserve's offense was held in check. He managed to keep FaZe Clan from totally falling apart under Zer0's run in Round 4 Hardpoint, and even allowed them to keep a slight 175-173 lead. The rest of Red Reserve would wake up, though, and overrun Priestah and FaZe Clan.
Tries to find picks
May 24, 2018
Priestah tried to take control in a 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Priestah, unfortunately, didn't have a standout game. This was mainly because of a lack of teamwork that saw the team overlooking objective and map control. Priestah attempted to force individual fights in order to pick off Red Reserve. Unfortunately, Red Reserve stuck close together, forcing Priestah to engage in uneven teamfights. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, this was Priestah becoming unable to engage Red Reserve because of their stacking and often losing first blood kills to his opponents.
Strong game in sweep
May 23, 2018
Priestah had a strong game throughout the sweep win over Echo Fox on the first day of the second week of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Prestiah has a very strong performance overall in this win. He started hot in Round 1 Hardpoint, as he and ZooMa were a dominant pairing for FaZe Clan. He had 35 kills, second on the team behind ZooMa, as well as 1:00 on the objective. He played an excellent two-way game, and was a key reason why they took the round so easily. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw the same two players lead the charge for FaZe Clan again, with ZooMa and Priestah dominate en route to a 6-1 win. Priestah fell down to a more support-based performance in Round 3 Capture the Flag, going 21/21 in the round. Despite slowing down towards the end, he put together an excellent showing and was a big part of their sweep win.
Solid end to loss
May 17, 2018
Priestah had a strong end to the 3-1 loss to Evil Geniuses on Day 2 of Week 1 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Priestah's best performance came in the last round, Round 4 Hardpoint. He led his team both in kills (25) and Hardpoint time (1:28). While FaZe Clan were beat rather easily by FaZe, Priestiah had their best performance of the round, with Attach the second-best player on the team. His teammates struggled, as Evil Geniuses played really well as a team. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him notch a minute on the objective as well, but he went 23/25 in the round. He started off incredibly slow, however, going 4/12 in the early stages. He had an impressive performance towards the end of the round to get nearly even after the slow start. He provided solid support in the Round 2 Search & Destroy win, their only win of the round, and went 17/20 in a tough Round 3 Capture the Flag loss, in which they were never close to a lead with how well Evil Geniuses performed.
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 1/2 KD in as game six started, but he got two kills to clutch a 1-vs-2 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.
