RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Everyone has off days, and apparently for Moose, CWL Birmingham Day 2 was one of them, for while Millennium eventually won against them 3-1, Moose consistently scored negative KDs in every single round, eventually winding up with an overall score of 62/72.

Moose just couldn't keep up with the rest of his team against Zealous eSports, for while his off performance didn't prevent Millennium from winning, it certainly didn't help. Moose started off with an 18/22 KD for the first Hardpoint map; although he did get a minute and 24 seconds of control time. Moose fared slightly better during Millennium's weak Search & Destroy map, but still wound up negative with a 5/6 KD. The weak performance continued into Uplink, where Moose wound up negative yet again with a 21/26 KD and being unable to put any points up on the board, and Moose eventually fizzled out in the second Hardpoint map with a KD of 18/20.

Moose couldn't save his team from themselves in a loss to Fnatic at the CWL Birmingham quarterfinals.

Millenium couldn't close in the end despite Moose's consistently spectacular performance. Moose led his team in kills throughout the game, but little mistakes from his teammates and himself forced them into bad situations. Round 3 Uplink was prime exampled of this as Moose led his team into aggressive pushes that ended in failures. Fnatic, often, only had to wait for Moose to come to them for a kill. While it did score the team some points, Moose lost the round in a tight overtime thanks due to an overly aggressive push towards the ball's spawn. Moose, also, was sloppy that round thanks to poor uses of his FTL Jump Payloads. Round 4 Hardpoint was absolutely dominated by Moose with early killstreaks that gave him full Scorestreaks and a 31/14 KD. A late game Bombardment from Moose helped clutch out the round.

Moose had a great start, but Millenium faltered against eUnited anyway, losing 3-2 on Friday at CWL Dallas.

Moose had a strong 24/18 performance in Round 1 Hardpoint; he was the only Millenium member to post a positive KD in the round. He and MarkyB were the bright spots in a tough Round 1. He continued his strong play in Round 2 Search & Destroy, highlighted by an ace in Game 4 -- again, it was the Moose and MarkyB show. He was a better scorer than a killer in Round 3 Uplink, but it helped his team all the same. He, again, posted the only positive KD in a Hardpoint in Round 4 Hardpoint, this time notching a 21/17. He defused a bomb in Game 6 of Round 5 Search & Destroy, but it was far from enough to knock off eUnited.

Moose struggled in the early game in win against Supremacy on Day 1 of CWL Paris.

Moose came out hard in Round 3 Uplink after a weak first two rounds. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Moose play smart, pinching Hardpoints, but Infused simply couldn't win their fights as they got peppered from behind cover. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a similar story for Moose. Neither he nor his teammates could win gunfights due to bad positioning and early trades. Moose busted out in Round 3 Uplink with a great four-kill streak in the beginning alongside Peatie. Supremacy got staggered from the early fights, making them easy picks for Moose. Moose continued his beautiful shots into Round 4 Hardpoint. By late game, Moose was streaked out enough that he clutched out a close Hardpoint thanks to a Trinity Rocket and Drones that cleared bike path.

Moose had a rough go of it against Luminosity, as Team Infused were swept out of MLG Atlanta on Championship Sunday.

Moose really limped out of the gate and it handcuffed Team Infused. He started Round 1 Hardpoint with a 4/13 KD -- it did not improve, either, ending with round with a 6/16 KD. It was a brutal showing, and he could not get anything done. He had a similarly bad showing in Round 2 Search & Destroy. He finally woke up in Round 3 Uplink, starting 6/0 and ending 26/22, but his teammates could not pick up the slack as Team Infused were eliminated with a whimper.

Moose couldn't carry with a 43/49 KD in loss against Splyce on Day 4 of MLG London.

Team Infused's over-reliance on Moose hurt them once again. But this time, it was because Moose couldn't find the kills he needed rather than his teammates not bringing the thunder. Splyce made sure to specifically target Moose in their fights in order to shut down any hope of momentum. This was clear in Round 1 Hardpoint. Moose was focused down in teamfights that Splyce was forcing. With Splyce clumping together hard, Moose had hit Splyce either in a pinch or head-on. Neither were favorable for Moose or Team Infused. Moose couldn't find the picks he needed in those teamfights and soon his team was trying to carry him. The bleeding was eventually slowed by the following rounds, but the damage was already done. Moose couldn't find steam so neither could Team Infused. Moose closed Round 3 Uplink with a 20/19 KD.

Moose dominated with a 85/64 KD in a loss against Team Orbit on Day 4 of MLG London.

Moose continues to be the key for Team Infused. The rounds Moose streaked in were the rounds they won. This shows a fundamental problem in the team's lineup: if Moose doesn't carry, then Infused loses. Moose is an amazing player, but his team relies too heavily on him. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Moose go 22/18 KD and 1:54 objective time in upset win. Team Orbit was set to take the first Hardpoint, but Moose and Peatie proved to be a force of nature. The momentum carried into Round 3 Uplink where Moose went into some godly streaks. Moose was able to get an 11 streak in the second half that decimated Team Orbit while in the first half Moose posted a 17/8 KD. Then Round 4 Hardpoint happened. Team Orbit found their footing as Moose had a weaker game. Then, in Round 5 Search & Destroy, Team Infused had difficulty playing Team Orbit's cerebral games. Moose closed with a 6/6 KD and three plants.

Moose was very good in the win over Aware Gaming that kept Infused alive in the losers bracket of CWL London on Sunday. He posted a 80/60 KD in the win.

Moose has made a name for himself at CWL London, and he did not disappoint in the match against Aware. He came out hot right away, putting together a great run to swing the game in Infused's favor in Round 1 Hardpoint. He ended up going 21/15 in the round -- he had less than a minute of Hardpoint time, but his role is to slay not stay on the objective. He had a big influence on Round 2 Search & Destroy, notching the final kill in games4, 5 and 8 -- three of the six necessary games needed to win the round. He was a solid slayer and a point man in Round 3 Uplink, and, despite the round loss, did a good job at opening holes for his team. He continued the strong slaying from the previous three rounds in the final Round 4 Hardpoint, constantly disrupting Aware's game as Infused kept their championship hopes alive.

Moose had an incredible start to the match against Fnatic on Friday at Gfinity London, earning a 61/47 KD in the impressive win.

Moose was a man on fire -- for the first two rounds -- of the match against Fnatic. He and Peatie carried the team to their first round win. He had 34 kills and 1:42 on the hill; he was unstoppable. He also had the final kill to take the hill and secure the win. He continued to be strong in Round 2 Search & Destroy, posting ten kills and being a problem throughout the round. He faltered a bit in the third round, only posting 17 kills and two points in Uplink. However, he had a strong showing that he surely hopes to build on.

Moose will join Team Infused for the start of the next iteration of competitive Call of Duty.

Released by Epsilon eSports a little less than a month ago, Moose wasn't out of a job for long. Teaming with Peatie, MarkyB and newly announced member, Nolson, Moose has the chance to pick up right where he left off in terms of KD numbers, as the former Epsilon member was one of the most feared slayers in Europe. Depending on what role Moose takes with the new roster, he should be primed for another terrific slaying season, and will likely help stabilize a roster that is loaded with talent.

Moose has been released by Epsilon eSports, the player tweeted on Monday.

In a bit of a surprising move, Epsilon eSports opted to release Moose following the team's 13th-16th place finish at Call of Duty XP. On one of the better teams in all of Europe, Moose was one of the leading players for Epsilon, recording a 1.02 KD during Call of Duty XP. Moose will almost assuredly find himself on another team prior to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, but it remains to be seen if he will land on a team of the same quality as his former roster.

Moose capped off the tournament win against Renegades, opening with a solid 72/64 KD ratio.

Moose had a solid start in Round 1 Hardpoint. While his KD ratio was unimpressive (23/30), he did some important things for Epsilon. He and SunnyB were important early on, notching some key kills on the way to solid Hardpoint time. Moose also had an important rotational hold to keep an early lead, en route to 1:10 on the hill for his team. His Round 2 Search and Destroy performance was up and down, much like his team's performance in the round loss. He started slow, where he made a crucial mistake that cost his team the first game of the round. However, he notched the final kill in the second game, and won the fourth with an impressive bait of the Renegades, eventually winning the one-on-one firefight. Moose had a big impact on his team's Round 3 Uplink victory. He came out of the gates flying, immediately popping off four kills and a throw-in. He added a throw-in to begin the second half as well. He also cemented the round victory with a clutch kill of Chino, and then proceeded to waste time, and eventually threw the drone off the map in the dying seconds of the round. In the final Round 4 Capture the Flag, Moose dominated. He was all over the map, springing multiple points for his team, one with his Tempest. He ended with a very good 26/7 KD ratio in the round, and two returns.

Moose is able to get the kills, but not the objectives in Thursday's playoff match against Millennium.

Despite getting some very clutch kills in Round 3 Search & Destroy and getting a high KD in every round, Moose found himself struggling due to some clever plays from Millennium. In Round 3 Search & Destroy, Moose was able to pull in the round for Epsilon eSports thanks to several clutch plays, with the highlight coming in at Game 5 where Moose won in a 1-vs-3 scenario thanks to his mobility and his Active Camo. But even as he posted some high KDs, Millennium simply played smarter, such as in Round 6 Uplink where Moose fell off the map with the ball, or in Round 5 Hardpoint where Epsilon eSports wasn't breaking into Hardpoints with Moose. On top of that, Moose's poor uses of major Scorestreaks like Cerberus and Hellstorm didn't help matters at all. Moose brought out his Cerberus way too early in Round 5 Hardpoint and Epsilon eSports couldn't use it to break ahead. Then, in Round 6 Uplink, the mistakes began to pile on, as Moose was extremely sloppy with the ball, falling off the map and making weak throws every time he had the ball.
