Pokes weakness in a stubborn oppenent
February 20, 2018
TJHaLy tears gaping holes in Team Kaliber's defense in an unprecedented 3-0 stomp on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
TJHaLy proves he's the smarter SMG player against his rival, Kenny, this series. His main point-of-attack was to flank Team Kaliber by rushing behind their defenses by using the Airborne class. In Round 2 Search & Destroy on London Docks, this meant that TJHalY scored four first-blood's in a row, closing the map with five total, just by flanking behind Kaliber as his teammates engaged. Going into Round 3 Capture the Flag, TJHaLy constantly harassed Team Kaliber's base by always attempting to get a sneaky flag pull. Because of this, Team Kaliber were never able to find an even teamfight without sacrificing their flag.
Guns through Team Kaliber
February 20, 2018
Loony burns down Team Kaliber's ego in a brilliant 3-0 stomp on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Loony, even as far back as Black Ops III, was never known as a strong slayer. He worked to fix that this series. Not only was he matching TJHaLy, Rise Nation's powerhouse, but he also made some of the biggest plays in this series. His key round was Round 3 Capture the Flag where he scored a nearly double positive KD. Working with TJHaLy and Gunless, Loony would engage Team Kaliber head-on while Gunless pinched from the flanks and TJHaLy hit the objective. This caused chaos in Team Kaliber's ranks, thanks mainly to Loony continually clutching uneven fights.
Opens the map for his team
February 20, 2018
Gunless leads his team in devastating Team Kaliber in a 3-0 sweep on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Gunless blazes through the Team Kaliber, the dominant team in the CWL, thanks to his team's stronger slaying and superior strategies. Gunless's main strategy was to spread out and flank Team Kaliber, negating his opponent's roaming skills while also pinching them in uneven fights. This was best seen in Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, a map Team Kaliber purposely picked. The tight map was perfect for Gunless to flank behind Team Kaliber and allow him to flip spawns, such as in a key fight in the second Ventilation Room Hardpoint where he scored a double kill.
Lays down firepower from afar
February 20, 2018
Methodz beams down Team Kaliber in a 3-0 sweep on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Methodz is living in an SMG meta, but he's still able to beam with an AR. Methodz mainly filled in as the anchor of his team as they attempted to flank Team Kaliber. This required some interesting positioning from Methodz as he needed to compensate for Rise Nation's spreading themselves thin to flank. However, Methodz gave an excellent defense in Round 3 Capture the Flag. Methodz shredded with a clutch Fighter Pilot that scored a flag return in mid-map, while also narrowly avoiding getting caught in his own streak, but he tore on defense with an early quad-kill on an early Team Kaliber push.
Limps through SMG battles
February 20, 2018
Kenny falls flat in an unflattering 3-0 loss to Rise Nation on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Kenny tried to make the best of an awkward series that came off the back of some bold claims he made earlier that day on "Hot Mic". Despite proclaiming himself as one of the best, he lost this series 3-0. Kenny would try to turn around this series, such as in the second half of Round 3 Capture the Flag. He was desperate to make a play, so he made a bold play to rush Rise Nation's flag after scoring two kills in mid. After scoring the flag pull, he barreled across the map and scored an unprecedented flag capture. He was nearly able to rally another capture, but a disastrous teamkill from Chino closed those chances.
Gets trampled beneath Rise Nation
February 20, 2018
Chino shatters against Rise Nation in a 3-0 loss on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Chino had a disastrous day. Not only would he go kill-less in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but he likely cost his team Round 3 Capture the Flag. Starting with Round 2 Search & Destroy, Chino scored an inexcusable 0/8 KD in a nine game round. The score very easily held his team back as he became fodder for Rise Nation's streaks. But everyone has a bad round every once in a while. However, the biggest whiff came in Round 3 Capture the Flag when Chino teamkilled Theory as the two of them attempted to rally a second point off of Kenny's clutch flag capture. The disastrous teamkill ended any chance of Team Kaliber making a come-back.
Fails to swing a losing series
February 20, 2018
Accuracy attempts to turn around a 3-0 stomp from Rise Nation on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Accuracy was able to keep his head above water, but that did little good for his team. As Team Kaliber's AR, he was in charge of securing kills and controlling spawns, which he did with ease. The bigger problem was his inconsistency in winning teamfights as his teammates struggled to withstand Rise Nation's overwhelming flanks. This was simply because Accuracy couldn't split his attention across two fronts, a weakness Rise Nation took advantage with skill.
Fades away in the havok
February 20, 2018
Theory becomes invisible in a devastating 3-0 sweep by Rise Nation on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
ANALYSIS
Theory didn't fall apart like Chino, but neither did he stand out like Accuracy. Instead, he came off like as a largely irrelevant force in the game. This problem was largely because of how Team Kaliber played. They were torn apart from Rise Nation's flanks as Theory failed to keep a clear lookout. For four straight games in Round 2 Search & Destroy, TJHaLy was able to wrap behind Theory and score free kills on Team Kaliber.
A team player despite some low scores
February 17, 2018
Even though Jurd didn't have the best of performances against Evil Geniuses, he still proved himself to be worthy of being part of the team as Splyce pushed aside Evil Geniuses 3-0 on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Jurd didn't have the best performance in terms of KD during Round 1 Hardpoint, as he was the only member of Splyce to go negative in KD with 23/26. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, he went negative in KD at 2/5, with little bomb interaction (that is, no plants or defuses), despite Splyce easily pulling the rug out from under Evil Geniuses with six straight wins for the win. But Jurd was instrumental and heroic in Round 3 Capture the Flag, where Evil Geniuses threatened to make a comeback, and despite Jurd's again-negative KD with 18/20, he scored a flag capture that pushed the series into overtime, and from there his teammates easily shut down any hope of Evil Geniuses even making a dent in Splyce's return to form.
Dependable performance makes the win look eas
February 17, 2018
Bance demonstrated his dependability to his team as Splyce swept aside Evil Geniuses 3-0 on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Bance may not always be the best player of Splyce, but he holds his own enough to be an integral part of their team. He aptly proved this point in Round 1 Hardpoint, where despite getting the least amount of hardpoint control time with 20 seconds, he dependably slayed into positive territory with a KD of 28/26, helping put Evil Geniuses into the 100-point club. Next, in Round 2 Search & Destroy, with a 5/3 KD and a bomb plant he helped Splyce completely shut out Evil Geniuses, preventing them from putting any score on the board at all. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a bit of a weak link for Bance with a 15/23 KD, but he certainly performed well enough to edge out Evil Geniuses in overtime, as Splyce pretty much crushed their dreams.
