Tries to handle long-range fights
August 19, 2018
Accuracy failed to find momentum in a double Grand Finals loss to Evil Geniuses, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
Before Stage 1, Accuracy was known as one of the strongest AR players in the league thanks to his unique assault rifle perks. But as the meta evolved, Accuracy evolved into more of a support player, holding spawns and defending like many other AR players in the league. Accuracy attempted to regain his pre-Stage 1 glory, only to fall slightly short. Accuracy would dominate the first series' Round 5 Search & Destroy on Ardennes Forest, as it was his best map and game mode, by landing a seven killstreak that secured the map and series win. However, the second series saw Accuracy falter as he was unable to contend with Evil Geniuses' double-AR composition, making Accuracy's opponent too strong to attack from long-range. Accuracy and Team Kaliber were unable to adapt to this dilemma in the second series, finding themselves blown out 3-0.
Rallies a rough first series, but not the second series
August 19, 2018
Enable struggled to rally a win in a grueling double Grand Finals loss to Evil Geniuses, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
Enable's veteran experience may have guided Team Kaliber to the Grand Finals, but it wasn't able to clutch the championship title. The first series saw Evil Geniuses gain an early advantage as Team Kaliber struggled to warm up in the first two maps. But by Round 3 Capture the Flag, Enable and the rest of the team woke up and slayed. Focusing more on lane fights rather than 1-vs-1 fights, Enable was able to whittle down Evil Geniuses while giving his team the mobility to flank. In Round 4 Hardpoint, Enable would be able to combine his tactics with his own slaying process, scoring a seven killstreak during the second set of rotations. However, Enable's loss in the second Round 1 Hardpoint took the wind out of Team Kaliber's sails, making them limp in the face of Evil Geniuses.
Dominates the first series
August 19, 2018
Ferocitys streaked hard in a double Grand Finals series loss to Evil Geniuses, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
Ferocitys was largely the reason Team Kaliber was able to take the first series. His strong slaying in Round 4 Hardpoint and Round 5 Search & Destroy gave Team Kaliber a suite of utility while also opening the map for the team. In Round 4 Hardpoint on London Docks, for example, Ferocitys was able to land a seven killstreak while breaking the first Barrels Warehouse. Ferocitys' Scorestreaks became vital in the third set of rotations as his Artillery Strike zoned out on the third Statue hill. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw a similar situation as Ferocitys once again scored all his Scorestreaks to clean out Evil Geniuses. However, Ferocitys' slaying disappeared in the second series, where he struggled to make even his presence felt.
Burns out in the middle of series
August 19, 2018
Kenny attempted to rebound in a back-to-back Grand Finals loss to Evil Geniuses, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
Kenny had all the information he needed to fight Evil Geniuses, having fought them early in the day. However, the grueling set of four matches in a row eventually saw him and Team Kaliber burn out. Kenny stuck to his normal strategy of roaming and picking up kills in lane. While this strategy struggled to work in the first two rounds, partly because of the map, he was able to beam in lane in Round 3 Capture the Flag. Kenny caused constant problems for Evil Geniuses by constantly sneaking behind his opponents, such as in Round 3 Capture the Flag, or by landing double or triple kills, such as in Round 4 Hardpoint. However, the second Round 1 Hardpoint loss seemed to zap any energy left in Kenny and his shots quickly fell flat.
Slays and supports with Assault
August 19, 2018
SiLLy supported Assault to win his first tournament in a back-to-back Grand Finals win against Team Kaliber, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
SiLLy evolved from a support player to a lead SMG slayer. His movement ability, shown across both series, allowed him to shut down Team Kaliber's roaming tactics. This was largely down by coordinating with Assault, Evil Geniuses' other SMG player, to pinch objectives. This was best seen in the first Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar where SiLLy and Assault were able to zone Team Kaliber by scoring early kills in lane. The second series saw SiLLy's and Assault's coordination in full force as the two were able to blow apart a limp Team Kaliber by pinching their flanks, such as in Round 3 Capture the Flag where SiLLy had the uncanny ability to worm his way into his opponents' flanks.
Punishes Team Kaliber's slow game
August 19, 2018
Assault blew apart Team Kaliber in a double Grand Finals win, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
Assault has quietly become one of the most consistent slayers in the CWL as this weekend's tournament. Because of this, Assault was able to shut down Team Kaliber whenever they weren't performing at their absolute best. In the first Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar, Assault was able to lead the lobby with a 25/15 KD by the end of the second Pit Center hill. This heavy slaying gave Evil Geniuses the edge they needed to zone the close-range Team Kaliber. However, the second half of the first series saw Assault slump slightly as Team Kaliber's Kenny beamed kills. Assault would quickly shut down Kenny in the second Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks as he was able to break his opponent's defense at the second Barrell Warehouse. This small break, performed with a three killstreak, gave his team the edge to win the map 250-224.
Gives a solid defense
August 19, 2018
Apathy delivered a strong defense in a double Grand Finals win against Team Kaliber, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
Apathy didn't match his teammates' slaying, but he was able to assist them in meaningful ways regardless. The first half of the first series saw Evil Geniuses pick a map pool favorable to them, such as Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar. Apathy was able to use the large map to secure spawns against Team Kaliber's offense. For example, during the second Castle Road Hardpoint, Apathy was able to give his team nearly endless spawns. But when Team Kaliver turned up in the second half of the series, Apathy struggled to make his presence felt meaningful. The second series quickly fixed Apathy's one flaw, slaying, as he was able to hold Hardpoints in the second Round 1 Hardpoint.
Scores his second Championship ring
August 19, 2018
Aches proved he's the best in "boots-on-the-ground" Call of Duty in a double Grand Finals win against Team Kaliber, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second series 3-0, on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
ANALYSIS
This year, with a game without jetpacks, Aches was able to prove he's one of the best players in the game. The first series saw Aches blow-out his opponents in the first half of the series. Using his spawn-focused tactics from the previous series, Aches and his teammates were easily able to zone Team Kaliber's close-range tactics with their long-range, double assault rifle composition. But when Team Kaliber woke up in the second half, slaying to their fullest potential, Aches struggled to pin down his opponents. But in the second series, with the momentum firmly in Team Kaliber's control, Aches went back to his long-range tactics to sweep a suddenly deflated Team Kaliber in a swift 3-0. This was best seen in the second Round 2 Search & Destroy where Aches decimated Team Kaliber with a 9/1 KD by Game 6.
Picks off enemies from across the map
August 19, 2018
Accuracy held his team steady in a 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship to re-enter the Grand Finals.
ANALYSIS
Accuracy had a decent match-up against FaZe Clan's frantic playstyle this series. Since both teams played scrappy tactics, flooding objectives with close-range weapons, Accuracy wasn't under much pressure by his opponents. But it also meant he was unable to stand-out for most of it. That changed when the series went to a Round 5 Search & Destroy on Ardennes Forest, Accuracy's best map and game mode. Accuracy was able to secure the win with a seven killstreak as he was able to set-up around mid-map and pick off his opponents.
Steadily leads his team away from loss
August 19, 2018
Enable gave a steady, unremarkable game in a 3-1 win over FaZe Clan on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship, booking their way to the Grand Finals.
ANALYSIS
Enable's veteran cool and leadership skills assisted Team Kaliber in keeping their cool in a close series. After FaZe Clan won Round 1 Hardpoint 250-149 and FaZe Clan landed a full suite of Scorestreaks in Round 2 Search & Destroy, Team Kaliber seemed doomed to lose the series. However, Enable was able to turn around the series in Game 9 of Round 2 Search & Destroy by having Kenny flank his opponents. This small play gave Team Kaliber the map win and handed Team Kaliber some much-needed momentum. After this first success, Enable organized similar flanking plays could be seen in Round 4 Hardpoint and Round 5 Search & Destroy.
