Mediocre performance against Enigma6
December 18, 2017
Although Arcitys didn't hold his team back against Enigma6 on Day 1 of Northern Arena, he wasn't exactly instrumental to their 3-1 victory, either.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys helped out his team against Enigma6, but his overall performance was mediocre. His KD of 20/19 in Round 1 Hardpoint wasn't anything notable, although his objective control time of 1:24 was nothing to sneeze at. Arcitys floundered with the rest of eUnited during Round 2 Search & Destroy with a paltry KD of 5/7. Arcitys did manage two flag captures during Round 3 Capture the Flag, but that was mostly due to his teammates providing covering fire and getting the kills. In Round 4 Hardpoint, Arcitys finally got a solid KD of 27/20, but Enigma6 was already against the ropes at that point.
A Search & Destroy slayer to be reckoned with
December 18, 2017
SiLLy made his presence known in Search & Destroy despite weak KDs elsewhere in a 3-1 victory against Enigma6 on Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy may have been weak in the respawn game modes in terms of KD, but he made up for it with skillful objective control. For instance, in Round 1 Hardpoint, despite getting an even KD of 19/19, he found the most objective control time of his team with 1:52. He again had the most objective control time of his team in Round 4 Hardpoint with 1:33 although his KD suffered, dropping to 17/20. SiLLy had his chance in the spotlight during Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he got a notable KD of 11/7 despite eUnited losing that particular round. Arguably, SiLLy's weakest performance against Enigma6 was Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he couldn't capture any flags and scored a measly 19/18 KD.
Key playmaker despite weak KDs
December 18, 2017
Despite having below-average KDs, Clayster was instrumental in securing eUnited's series win in Round 3 Capture the Flag against Enigma6 during Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was known for making some heroic plays during CWL Dallas, and he'd attempt them again against Enigma6. His heroics cost him in terms of KD, however, as during Round 1 Hardpoint he'd score a paltry 22/25 KD, and an 8/10 KD in Round 2 Search & Destroy. But at least for this series, the heroics paid off, especially during Round 3 Capture the Flag when Clayster scored the game-winning flag capture in the final seconds of the round. Round 4 Hardpoint showed he could still slay, however, as his KD for that particular round was a nasty 25/14, easily putting Enigma6 in the 100-point club.
A CTF star for eUnited
December 18, 2017
Clever plays during Capture the Flag and dominant slaying performances during the Hardpoint rounds made Prestinni a standout player for eUnited, defeating Enigma6 3-1 on Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni established dominance over Enigma6 by coming out swinging during Round 1 Hardpoint with a KD of 28/19 and 1:06 of objective control time. Humorously, his Round 4 Hardpoint KD was almost exactly the same as his Round 1 KD, at 29/18, except in Round 4 Prestinni where he picked up 49 seconds of objective control time. Prestinni floundered during Round 2 Search & Destroy where he went double negative in KD with 5/10. But Prestinni's finest moment this series came during Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he practically took on the entire Enigma6 squad by himself to get a flag capture. This move helped eUnited eke out a win against Enigma6 that round, enabling eUnited to win against Enigma6 3-1 for the series.
Performs far below godlike against eUnited
December 18, 2017
GodRx started out as an effective objective player at first, but his inability to stay alive cost him and Enigma6 the overall victory against eUnited on Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
GodRX started as an effective objective player by getting the most objective control time of Enigma6 during Round 1 Hardpoint, but this was unable to prevent the loss. During Round 2 Search & Destroy, he scored a positive KD of 9/8 and helped Enigma6 clutch up against eUnited in a dramatic Game 11 standoff. But the worst was yet to come for GodRx, as during Round 3 Capture the Flag, GodRx was cut down numerous times before scoring a negative 14/23 KD. GodRx would do even worse during Round 4 Hardpoint, where he almost went double negative in KD with 15/25 and his objective performance would be far below his Round 1 mark at a mere 38 seconds of control time.
Great CTF player but weak elsewhere
December 18, 2017
General had a great performance during Round 3 Capture the Flag, but he failed to deliver elsewhere during his 1-3 loss against eUnited on Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
General played it cool during Round 1 Hardpoint, where he scored 1:15 of objective control time despite going negative in KD with 19/23 before eUnited ultimately claimed the round. General had a similar performance during Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he was able to get a couple of bomb defusals, despite going negative in KD again with 6/9, helping Enigma6 claim victory that round. General's time to shine was clearly during Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he had a slaying performance of two flag captures and a momentous KD of 23/11. But ultimately General failed to deliver at the end, for in Round 4 Hardpoint he notched only an 18/25 KD and only 46 seconds of objective control time, incapable of stopping eUnited's overall victory.
A great start but crashes and burns at the end
December 18, 2017
Pandur looked like he was going to carry the day against eUnited, but he would sputter out and be helpless to prevent his team 1-3 defeat to eUnited on Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
Pandur looked to be on point at the start of Enigma6's match against eUnited, as he scored a healthy KD of 27/25 during Round 1 Hardpoint, and a solid KD of 8/7 in Round 2 Search & Destroy. However, no one had any idea how difficult things would get for Pandur. He was trounced during Round 3 Capture the Flag with his KD at a mere 16/22 and no flag captures. Ultimately, Pandur crashed and burned hard during Round 4 Hardpoint by going triple negative with a KD of 10/28 and only 28 seconds of objective control time.
Pops off only to fall short of the win
December 18, 2017
Dashy had a rough start that he clawed back from in style, but his renewed slaying prowess didn't NET Enigma6 the victories they needed as they fell to eUnited 3-1 on Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
Dashy didn't do the best during Round 1 Hardpoint, going negative with a KD of 21/22. However, Dashy made up for that score in Round 2 Search & Destroy where he would go double positive with a monstrous KD of 11/5, easily outclassing eUnited. However, as we all know, kills aren't everything in competitive Call of Duty, and Dashy was reminded of this lesson in Round 3 Capture the Flag where Dashy picked up no flag captures despite getting an impressive 24/18 KD. The lesson was driven home again as eUnited would put Enigma6 into the 100-point club in Round 4 Hardpoint despite Dashy putting up a striking 29/20 KD.
Doesn't go big
December 17, 2017
SiLLy fell limp against Luminosity Gaming in a narrow 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming at the Northern Showdown Championships.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy continued his role as a forward position but he struggled against the overwhelming force of Luminosity Gaming like most would. While he was far from sacking his team, SiLLy didn't contribute anything major to his team. Largely, SiLLy was the first to engage in fights and the first to fall. In Round 1 Hardpoint, this was a boon for eUnited as SiLLy was able to harass Luminosity Gaming's lines. But in later rounds, like Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy, SiLLy's lack of consistent slaying hurt eUnited's chances of finding a favorable fight.
Finds some victories in a loss
December 17, 2017
Prestinni clutched some difficult fights in a narrow 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming at the Northern Showdown Championships.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni was on fire this series despite the loss. Coordinating well with his teammates, Prestinni made some narrow plays that nearly propelled his team to victory. In Round 1 Hardpoint on Ardennes Forest, Prestinni dropped an impressive five killstreak that gave him the Fighter Plane Scoresteak. He used this Scorestreak to effectively clear out the second Ruin hill with a triple kill. That simple set of kills handed eUnited complete control of the map where they were able to snowball off of the second Ruin and the second Bunker with near perfect holds. Meanwhile, Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Prestinni make a well-coordinated flag capture in the first half of overtime thanks to a long, sneaky wrap.
