Consistent through two
April 15, 2018
JW posted a 42/33 KD on Wednesday in a 1-1 split against FaZe Clan in Week 6 of ESL Pro League Season 7.
ANALYSIS
The series started on Train where JW struggled through the contested first half to earn the five rounds claimed in the 10-5 deficit going into the second. The second half was a much better start but the end result was nothing that JW anticipated, resulting in a 16-9 loss with his 20/18 KD and 74.8 ADR. However, his performance on Overpass was a vast improvement as he was able to snipe his way for a massive 12-3 half.

Snipes OpTic off Cobble
December 17, 2017

ANALYSIS
After OpTic took the pistol round win and KRIMZ evened the score with an ace in the following anti-eco, JW then returned to the defense with a stout defense on the B-bombsite. JW's movement on the B-bombsite with the AWP allowed him to pick-off the offense of OpTic to help hold the line for a massive eight-round hold. OpTic did pick up a round but JW rallied back with a triple-kill hold on the late B-bombsite rotate from the Green Wall. JW contributed to the massive first half 13-2 lead and continued in the second half by getting the aggressive entry-kills to sweep the half in the win, posting a 95.9 ADR.
Holds off OpTic
December 9, 2017
JW went 59/55 on Friday in an edging 2-1 win over OpTic Gaming in the quarterfinals of ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals.
ANALYSIS
JW had a tight first half on the offensive side of Inferno as both teams traded rounds until OpTic tied it all up 6-6. With a man deficit, JW turned things around with the AWP to snipe down three on the post-plant hold to secure the B-bombsite and the lead. A 9-6 lead grew as JW's quick B-bombsite rotation helped pick up a 3-0 start, but OpTic contested to end the streak. In Round 23, JW held off the offense with a triple kill hold on the B-bombsite to take the 13-10 lead but OpTic came right back to steal Inferno 16-14.

Monster showing in pivotal win
December 6, 2017
JW went off with a 40/29 KD in Fnatic's win over Team Liquid on Day 2 of the ESL Pro League Finals.
ANALYSIS
JW has really been coming into his own on this roster and it really showed here in this game Wednesday. He was doing everything for this team, and it allowed them to come away with the win. He was especially strong on his AWP as he even used it one time to come up with a big 3k on a nice flank to keep moving along to the big overtime win. JW also finished with the highest ADR on his team at 103.9 and paired that with a 1.39 rating. The team is now through to the playoffs, and JW will surely keep leading his team come playoff time.
Unable to close either OT in sweep
October 18, 2017
JW went 57/46 on Tuesday in a tough 2-0 loss to North in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
JW would start the series on the right foot after taking an offensive stand in the first half for a 3-0 lead. JW would then continue to harass the defense of North to pick up a handful more for a 6-1 lead. However, North managed to edge out a few rounds to take care of the deficit with five rounds to tie late. JW, struggling with a frail economy, finally got a break in the tie with a Round 13 win, which would be the last in the half after North closed out with the 8-7 lead. JW started the second half with another great lead, getting the first four rounds thanks to his Round 19 defuse to take the 11-8 lead. After giving up the following round, JW would then snipe down for three more rounds for the 14-9 lead. Reaching map point, North would fire back and force the extra rounds as JW would pick up his last two defensive rounds in overtime while North took Mirage 19-17. Game 2, JW would have a slow start in the first half as North would tally an 8-0 score. Holding down the B-bombsite consecutively, JW helped get the team five rounds in the first half 10-5 deficit. JW took over on the offense to open up the A-bombsite to pick up a huge offensive run to the start of the second half. Although North stood strong on the B-bombsite to reach map point in a late, contested series, JW would then open up the B-bombsite to force overtime. Unfortunately, in the extra rounds JW could only win one round in the 19-16 Game 2 loss on Cobblestone.
Falter majorly in loss to Astralis
October 10, 2017
JW only managed a 17/40 KD in this series sweep at the hands of Astralis in the quarterfinals of the ELEAGUE Premier 2017.
ANALYSIS
While this was certainly a tough matchup for Fnatic here against Astralis, JW didn't do much to help matters. He seemed to just be having a very off day as he couldn't do much right over the course of the lopsided sweep. He had the lowest ADR at just 45.6 and the lowest amount of kills at only 17. Fnatic is certainly in a bit of a rebuilding period at the moment, but they will need much more than this out of one of the veteran members if they wish to get anything going in the near future.
Snipes down for 2-0 win over mouz
September 27, 2017
JW earned a 37/27 KD on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over mouz in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
JW had a smooth start on Train with a 4-0 lead early on. In Round 5, JW snipped down three mouz members on the A-bombsite hold to secure the round. JW shut down any attempt on the A-bombsite with the AWP in hand, which included his Round 12 triple-kill hold further extend the lead 11-1. When JW had the AWP in hand, it allowed his team to sweep a majority of the rounds with the outside hold on the A-bombsite for a 14-1 lead at the half. The second half was short and sweet for JW who contributed to the two rounds won to secure Train 16-1. He then remained consistent in Game 2 on Cache with the AWP to get key opening kills on the offense and secure the 12-3 lead at the half. The second half was a bit more contested with a shaky economy and no AWP at the time, but he managed to close out with four rounds for a 16-10 win on Cache, posting a 20/19 KD and 95.1 ADR.
Second-half shredding on AWP
September 1, 2017
JW gathered a firm 24/17 KD on Day 1 of DreamHack Masters Malmo with a win over EnVyUs 16-13.
ANALYSIS
JW had a rocky start to Cobblestone on the defense despite winning the pistol round, giving up three straight on the B-bombsite. Finally, in Round 5 JW stood strong on the buy round for his team with a double kill to hold off the offense for the round win. In the following round, JW picked up the AWP to shut down the offense of nV with a quad kill hold on the B-bombsite and even the score 3-3. JW won a few more defensive plays on the AWP, including his Round 15 hold on the A-bombsite to secure the 9-6 deficit. JW opened the second half with a triple kill in the pistol round to clean the B-bombsite and the round. From there, JW ripped through the defense with mostly entry kills on the B-bombsite and stiff holds on the post-plant for the 3-0 start. Later, JW crushed the nV economy, only allowing them to win two more rounds for a 16-13 loss.
Late miscues seal Fnatic's demise
August 30, 2017
JW put up a 20/20 KD in Fnatic's close loss to Immortals on Day 1 of DreamHack Malmo.
ANALYSIS
JW took a few rounds to get going in this game, but he managed to contribute fairly well as the game went on. He grabbed the AWP early on to secure his team's first win in the first half before going silent until the second half. In Round 22, he kicked off his team's furious comeback with a ridiculous quad kill with the MAG-7. He also ended up being the goat, however, as he missed a flick in Round 29 that could have easily wrapped up the 1-vs-2. He missed it, his team lost the round, and then the following round as well to drop the map 16-14.
Locks down BIG with the AWP
August 22, 2017
JW was solid with a 49/30 KD in Fnatic's 2-0 win over BIG on Tuesday in the ESL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
JW was doing a lot for his team all throughout this series to open the ESL Pro League. He not only flanked well with a rifle to thin the herd and give his team number advantages in many rounds, but he shut things down with the AWP. It seemed like he could do no wrong on the powerful rifle at any point during the sweep. Sure, they lost a few rounds towards the end of both games, but it wasn't enough to completely knock off their rhythm. Fnatic simply looked rejuvenated under the leadership of Golden with this new roster. They very well could be a force to be reckoned with in this region here in Season 6.
Top member of Fnatic in loss
July 4, 2017
JW tried his best to get Fnatic the win here, posting a 22/19 KD when they lost to mousesports on Tuesday at ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
JW worked well with his rotations in this game against mouz. His enemies never had a clue which direction he would pop up from next, which allowed Fnatic to enjoy plenty of success in the early rounds. He even grabbed the AWP at one point and did some major damage there, as well. The only problem was that Fnatic was unable to keep up their early pace and ended up falling short in the 16-11 loss.
Loses balance in loss
May 31, 2017
JW went 18/22 in Fnatic's defeat at the hands of G2 on Day 2 of the ESL Pro League Finals.
ANALYSIS
While JW shut down Cloud9 with his shotgun earlier in the day, he came up pretty short when Fnatic faced G2. He had nothing in the first two rounds, but did tally an entry frag to pick up a kill in the first gun round of the half. He found a 3k in the following round, but came up a bit short in the final moments. He was in a 1-vs-3 situation and found the first two kills, but couldn't get the 1-vs-1 to close out the round. Moving into the second half, his 3k in Round 19 almost brought them to a tie, but G2 was just too strong in the late rounds. Fnatic's inability to get a hold of the late rounds resulted in a 16-11 loss.
