Boston Uprising
Impactful even against the greats
April 21, 2018
Striker reinforced the Boston Uprising in a 2-1 victory over the Seoul Dynasty on Day 3 of Week 3 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Striker's Tracer play is among the best of the League, but this match he also showed his Junkrat is nothing to scoff at. Being able to easily switch between these two heroes, and still have such a huge impact on a match, is an indication of pure talent. It's even more impressive when you realize this is up against the team that was touted to be the best in the League. Despite what anyone may believe, Striker is among the top DPS players without a doubt.
Dashingly lethal
April 20, 2018
Striker was a crucial asset for the Boston Uprising in their 3-2 victory over the London Spitfire on Day 2 of Week 3 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Striker's Tracer play continues to be top notch among the league. This match he flexed his strategic muscles, engaging only when safe to do so and returning alive with his life. Striker consistently shredded through London support Closer's Mercy, taking away a key source of healing in teamfights. If Striker isn't on your list already, you've been living under a rock.
Constant aggression
April 15, 2018
Striker was constantly disrupting the Florida Mayhem in the Boston Uprising's 3-2 victory on Day 4 of Week 2 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Whether it was on Junkrat or Striker, Striker continued to show how much power he brings to the Uprising. Constantly, Striker would be on the backline as Tracer coordinating to have as much impact as possible. If that didn't work, he would switch up to fit the needs of the team near instantly. Striker continues to be a premiere DPS player within the OWL and shows no sign of being a disappointment.
Deadly Tracer play
April 6, 2018
Striker put overwhelming pressure onto the Philadelphia Fusion in the Boston Uprising's 3-2 victory on Day 1 of Week 1 in Stage 3 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Striker's Tracer play immediately took off going up against the Fusion. At every available moment, Striker would aim to find his way to Philadelphia's supports and instantly start damaging them. Even if he didn't get a kill, this tactic allowed Gamsu's Winston and DreamKazper's Widowmaker to work their respective magic. Striker has already been a solid Tracer player, and this increased coordination is a welcome addition to his skill set.
Ridiculously good Tracer
March 28, 2018
Striker was amazing in a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Gladiators on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Striker proves once again that his Tracer deserves to be in talks for one of the best, if not the best in the Overwatch League. All throughout the five-match series, Striker could be seen darting in and out of the backline at just the right time to abuse the poor Gladiators Zenyatta players, or score a quick one-clip frag on an unsuspecting Mercy. Striker really is in a league of his own.
Excellent Tracer play
March 18, 2018
Striker was a madman in a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Valiant on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Striker was an absolute beast on Tracer throughout the five-game series against the Los Angeles Valiant. Not only did he mercilessly hunt down both supports, he also managed to outfox the opposing Tracer many times, giving his team the advantage in the process. Striker's play this series was absolutely a step in the right direction for Boston and should he continue with this level of success, Boston will find themselves in a good spot come Stage 3.
Shows off in big win
March 15, 2018
Striker's Tracer play was inspiring in a 4-0 stomp over the Dallas Fuel on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Able to capitalize with the Fuel's attention focused on Gamsu and Dreamkazper, Striker's flanking and assassination on Tracer was surgical and excellent all around as he consistently took out the enemy supports, crumbling the defense of the Fuel.
Gets free reign of the Shanghai backline
March 10, 2018
Striker led the Boston Uprising to a swift 4-0 victory against the Shanghai Dragons on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
While it's true that the Uprising were merely facing the lowly Dragons, Striker's dominance was still quite the spectacle. The way in which he was able to navigate his Tracer all throughout the map showed off just how strong he is when he has the space to move around. There were times that he would find his way into the backline to shred members of the Dragons without even being touched. Combine that with the strength of his DPS partner in DreamKazper and you have one of the most dynamic duos in the OWL.
Flanks with reckless abandon
March 3, 2018
Striker was a dominant force in Boston Uprising's 4-0 sweep of the Florida Mayhem on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Sticking with his trademark Tracer for most of the game, Striker was a thorn in the side of Florida all night long. While Tracers are meant to come up with hard flanks, Striker was on another level with his flanks in this series. There was no way that the Mayhem could keep up with him and it led to their swift demise.
Starts strong before tapering off
February 24, 2018
Striker had his sporadic moments of greatness in a 4-0 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Striker started the series off by winning Tracer duels with Carpe, which gave Boston a fighting chance on Hanamura. The only problem was that shutting down Carpe in those spots had no effect on the might of Eqo in his OWL debut. Moreover, outside of the strong start, Striker went quiet as the series progressed.
Goes quiet in loss to Houston
February 12, 2018
Striker never seemed to get in the right position for the Boston Uprising in the 3-2 loss to the Houston Outlaws on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Striker has a track record of being a consistent Tracer, but today we didn't see that. Instead, Striker didn't have too many standout moments. Whether it was the pressure or just an off day is unknown, but it was certainly surprising. During some fights, Striker seemed to be slightly off on his own rather than contributing towards taking down the focus. Hopefully, we'll see the Striker we know once we're back in a much less intense match.
Always on the move
February 9, 2018
Striker was often the arbiter of teamfight success for the Boston Uprising in their 4-0 victory over the Philadelphia Fusion.
ANALYSIS
Striker spent most if not all of his time as Tracer for the Uprising. He continually flanked the Fusion and found his way into their backlines. Tossing Pulse Bombs onto the supports at every chance he got, Striker was an absolute terror to Philadelphia and earned himself Player of the Match honors.
Unparalleled Tracer performance
February 4, 2018
Striker was at the top of his game in a 4-0 victory against the Los Angeles Valiant on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Striker played best when he was on Tracer. This was instantly noticeable as in Game 1 he was able to score a triple kill and destroy the Junkrats RipTire ultimate with a single pulse grenade. This proved to be the only advantage his team needed to fully push the payload in for the win. Later on in the series, Striker was able to quietly earn an impressive 13/2 KD ratio with Tracer while the Valiant focused heavily on mitigating the damage that DreamKazper was doing with his flex picks.
Splits Los Angeles Gladiators right down the middle
February 3, 2018
Striker continued to shine as he tears through Los Angeles Gladiators in a 4-0 victory on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Striker will easily become Boston's star if he keeps this kind of gameplay up. Though, to be fair, Striker is only able to do what he does thanks to Boston's unique coordination skills. Only playing Tracer, Striker blitzed through the Los Angeles Gladitor's core defenses at every turn to pick out healers or DPS players. This was thanks to Boston's simple strategy of having the tanks dive the frontline while Striker harasses the healers from some flanks. This saw some outstanding effects on Boston's Dorado offensive. Striker was just able to pull LA's healers across the map, bullying them from their flanks until they were forced to retreat and abandon the team.
Pinches a victory agianst Dallas Fuel
January 27, 2018
Striker slammed Dallas Fuel's defenses in a close 3-2 win on Saturday against the Dallas Fuel.
ANALYSIS
Striker only needed to play one hero to beat Dallas Fuel and that hero was Tracer. At first, Striker struggled against the tank-heavy lineup of Dallas Fuel that mitigated his damage. However, by the first offense on Numbani Striker was able to maneuver around Dallas' slow core tanks of Orisa and Roadhog. Punishing their exposed flanks, especially on the second point defense on Temple of Anubis, Striker pinched his enemies alongside DreamKazper. Striker even landed a god-like Pulse Bomb that scored four kills, stopping Dallas' entirely. The DreamKazper/Striker pinch tactic worked wonders on Ilios Well, Ilios Lighthouse and all of Lijiang Tower since all of Dallas' focus was split across multiple fronts.
