Plays best in Round 2
July 18, 2018
TJHaLy's best round was the second round of their 3-1 loss to OpTIc Gaming on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
TJHaLy's most consistent round was Round 2 Search & Destroy (their only win of the match), and he did not really start that one on fire. He ended up turning up as the round got going, and really put together a strong round when it was all said and done. He had back-to-back game wins with kills in Games 6 and 7, and was on fire from then on. Outside of that, TJHaLy saw some struggles, and Round 3 Capture the Flag was the worst of the bunch, as he went 17/28 in a round where they were out of contention almost immediately. They fell behind 4-0 in the first, and their offense was absolutely locked up by OpTic Gaming. His two Hardpoint rounds were inconsistent at best, though he picked it up later on in Round 1 Hardpoint after a slow start, and Round 4 Hardpoint was the opposite, as he faded after a hot start. Overall, outside of the second round, TJHaLy just could not find stable ground in the loss to OpTic Gaming.
Strong performance despite loss
July 18, 2018
SlasheR played well, but that did not stop OpTic Gaming from beating Rise Nation 3-1 on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR did more good than bad in this match. The bad was at times significantly bad; Round 3 Capture the Flag is a testament to that. He was bad in that round,though he was hardly alone in that, and they were blown out. They gave up four caps in the first half, and were absolutely stifled on offense. It was just a bad round all around for Rise Nation, and SlasheR limped to a 15/19 KD. The rest of his performance was solid, however. He was not a prolific slayer in Round 1 Hardpoint, but SlasheR was certainly a positive contributor. He went 24/25, but had a whopping 2:10 on the objectivr in the round. His stellar play on the objective was a big reason why they were rather close to pulling off the round win. Round 2 Search & Destroy was their lone round win, and SlasheR had a lot to do with it. He went off after a bit of a slow start, and his mid- to late-game performance was a key part of their win. He finished the match off in a Round 4 Hardpoint loss that was close. He, Gunless and TJHaLy were a three-headed monster, and the trio looked like they would force a round five. However, OpTic Gaming countered them, and ended up finishing off the match.
Struggles with inconsistencies in loss
July 18, 2018
Loony was never able to find stable ground in the 3-1 defeat to OpTIc Gaming on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Loony was up and down in this one. Round 1 Hardpoint was one of his high points, as he led them throughout the round. He was their only consistent player at some points, especially early on in the round, when he was the only one making positive contributions for Rise Nation. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, he started off the round quite slowly, but ended up playing well down the stretch en route to a round win. The highlight of his round came in Game 9, as he had three of the kills in the game to put them one kill away from a round win. He was outright bad in Round 3 Capture the Flag, though everyone on the team was, as they lost 4-0 and never really got close to a point. They were completely stifled from beginning to end, and Loony was included in that. He was rather inconsistent in Round 4 Hardpoint, again, as he started very strongly, as they led in the early going, but he faded as OpTic Gaming took the lead and won the round.
Mostly average in loss
July 18, 2018
Gunless had his ups and downs, which resulted in a pretty average performance in the 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Gunless had his ups and downs in this match. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his clear worst round, but that is true for everyone on Rise Nation. It was a blowout, as they gave up all four flag caps in the first half, and never once came close to getting near a point in the round. It was a disaster for them from start to finish. The rest of his performance was rather innocuous; he went 32/32 with 51 seconds on the objective in Round 1 Hardpoint, 33/34 with 1:04 on the objective in Round 4 Hardpoint, and was a solid support player in their Round 2 Search & Destroy win. Overall, he slid into a more support-based role in the loss, which went well while they were leading, but he struggled when OpTic Gaming were dominating.
Consistent performer in win
July 18, 2018
Scump was the most consistent member of OpTic Gaming in the 3-1 win over Rise Nation on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump was a solid and reliable performer in this one, and it started right away. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him run out in the early stages to lead OpTic Gaming. He fluctuated a bit in the round with a down portion towards the middle, but finished off strong to be a part of a three-man attack with Methodz and Octane that helped win them the round. Scump was really good in Round 2 Search & Destroy as well, especially in the latter stages of the round, but Rise Nation were able to outplay OpTic Gaming despite his strong play, and OpTic suffered their only loss of the round. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a complete blowout, as OpTic ran out to a 4-0 lead and held it through the second half to win the round. Scump was solid but unassuming in the win, going just 20/20 in the round. Interestingly enough, the easiest win in the round was probably his worst round individually; he was far from bad, he was just laid back while his teammates really took control. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him take a more central role again. He and Crimsix led them while Methodz and Octane really struggled to do much of anything. Scump kept his pace going as Methodz and Octane picked it up, as OpTic Gaming took the lead and ran with it.
Excels in the middle rounds
July 18, 2018
Octane's best rounds were the second and third rounds of the 3-1 win over Rise Nation on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Octane's two best rounds were in the middle of this match. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Octane play well, though it turned out to be the only loss they would suffer in this match. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his best round by far, and also was the biggest blowout of the match. He led the lobby with 31 kills (and paired it with only 14 deaths) in the 4-0 win. He was everywhere, and his slaying was a big reason why Rise Nation's offense was nonexistent. He helped stop push after push. The two Hardpoint rounds (Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint) were pretty similar ones for Octane; he was an up-and-down slayer (25/25 in Round 1, and 28/33 in Round 4), doing most of the work on the Hardpoint (1:00 in Round 1, and 1:12 in Round 4). His best stretch in either of the two rounds came at the end of Round 4, as he picked it up down to stretch to hold the OpTic lead, and secure the win.
Mostly strong play in win
July 18, 2018
Methodz was good for the majority of the 3-1 win over Rise Nation on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Methodz only found struggles in the final round of the win: Round 4 Hardpoint. He struggled quite a bit in the early part of the round; he and Octane could not find their footing, as OpTic Gaming kept themselves within striking distance of Rise Nation's lead due to Crimsix and Scump. Methodz picked it up down the stretch, however, as OpTic Gaming took and held onto a lead. He ended up with a 29/35 KD, with 1:07 on the objective, largely due to that late-game push. The rest of his performance was excellent, however. He was a dominant slayer in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag, as he earned a 59/40 KD in those two rounds combined, and he was a strong contributor on the objective in each. He had 1:10 on the objective in the first, and had two of his team's flag caps in the 4-0 blowout win in the third round. He added strong defense in the Capture the Flag round to his game, as well. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him lead the charge, especially in the early going. He was solid, but they still fell in that round.
Blows up after slow start
July 18, 2018
Crimsix did not start this match well, but he ended it exceptionally well as OpTic Gaming beat Rise Nation 3-1 on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Crimsix had a rough first two rounds to this win. Round 1 Hardpoint was a close win for OpTic Gaming, but Crimsix was rather inconsistent. He had a solid 1:11 on the objective, but he went just 20/31; he never found his footing in terms of slaying, but his teammates picked him up. He continued to be an inconsistent-at-best slayer in Round 2 Search & Destroy, though this round did not go in OpTic Gaming's favor. He picked it up in Round 3 Capture the Flag; the round was an utter blowout, as they took a 4-0 lead in the first half and sat on it in an easy second half. He went 18/14 with two of his team's flag caps; he was a very solid and reliable slayer, and did a great job providing staunch defense and strong offense. Round 4 Hardpoint was, far and away, his best round. He went a whopping 40/31 and had 2:00 on the objective. He was excellent in the early stages when Rise Nation were leading, and excellent down the stretch as OpTic Gaming came back to take the lead and finish off the win. His stability was key, and without it, a round five was very possible.
On fire in early going
July 13, 2018
Prestinni helped get eUnited their first two wins in the reverse-sweep loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 3, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a great round for eUnited, and it has everything to do with the end of that round. They trailed it for the vast majority of the round, but came roaring back late to pull of an impressive comeback. Prestinni had his fingerprints all over the win, as he 41 kills led the lobby. He and his brother Arcitys were huge in the latter stages of the round, and the duo stood tall as OpTic Gaming sent saves in to try and take back the objective, to no avail. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Prestinni play an incredibly aggressive game, but like the rest of eUnited. He had mixed results, mostly because he died a lot, but the often risky challenges paid off at times. The highlight of his round was a key defuse of the bomb as OpTic Gaming sent an Artillery Barrage onto the bomb. The defuse got them to within one game of winning, and they finished of the round in the next game. The rest of his performance was rough, however, as was his teammates. They lost Round 3 Capture the Flag, Round 4 Hardpoint, and Round 5 Search & Destroy were all decisive wins in OpTic Gaming's favor (6-2, 250-115, and 6-1 respectively). Simply put, they were blown out in every facet of those three rounds.
Fades after nice start
July 13, 2018
Felony played rather well in the early going but faded as the rounds went on in the reverse-sweep loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 3, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint housed a very impressive comeback win for eUnited. Felony struggled in the early going, enough for it to affect his entire KD ratio (he finished 27/35), though he did some good things in support of Arcitys and Prestinni late, as they did the heavy lifting in the comeback. Round 2 Search & Destroy was his best round, by far, as he and Arcitys paced them to a 10-game win. Their ultra-aggressive style of play in the round was excellent for Felony, as he kept catching OpTic Gaming off balance. He was a big reason why they were up 2-0; however, they were totally blown out in the next three rounds to lose their 2-0 lead and the match. They lost Round 3 Capture the Flag 6-2, Round 4 Hardpoint 250-115, and Round 5 Search & Destroy 6-1, and no one on eUnited had much of a chance to stop a very motivated OpTic Gaming.
