Joins 100 Thieves
September 28, 2018
SlasheR will join 100 Thieves, the organization confirmed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR's introduction plus the addition of Enable rounds out 100 Thieves semi-inaugural roster, and at first glance this appears to be the best team in competitive Call of Duty. SlasheR's slaying abilities are legendary in their own right, but coupled with that of Octane and Kenny the former Rise Nation player could be on the verge of a potentially historic competitive season. So long as the personalities mesh and the likes of Kenny and Octane can reprise their success from past seasons, it's hard to pinpoint a team currently constructed that could win in a five-game series against this iteration of 100 Thieves.
Loses his cool
August 18, 2018
SlasheR tripped himself up in a 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming, dropping out of the tournament on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR's frustrations were palpable at the end of the series. Once again, his emotions better of him as Luminosity Gaming slowly dismantled his gameplay. The first half of the series saw SlasheR easily leading the lobby. But by Round 3 Capture the Flag, the cool heads of Luminosity Gaming prevailed as they capitalized on Slasher's over-aggression. By Round 4 Hardpoint, Rise Nation was in shambles as SlasheR constantly tried to find solo kills when Rise Nation needed to win teamfights.
Backs up Gunless at every step
August 15, 2018
SlasheR plays a solid second fiddle to Gunless in big 3-1 win over Tainted Minds on Day 1 of CWL Champs.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR was on top of his game in this series and backed up Gunless at just about every turn. It seemed that whenever Gunless needed to slow down a bit, SlasheR was right there to keep things going according to plan. This was mostly on display during Capture the Flag when he started out with a hot 14/5 as Rise raced to a 3-0 lead in the first half alone. He followed this up with a 29/14 showing in the final Hardpoint round that saw him lead the lobby in kills and time on the point (1:38). If this is a sign of how this team will be playing this week, a championship could be well within their grasp.
Loses his cool in a painfully close series
July 30, 2018
SlasheR grew frustrated in a Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Team Kaliber forced a scrappy and bloody series, sometimes narrowly stealing rounds from SlasheR and Rise Nation. And while SlasheR's slaying stayed even across the series, his leadership slowly withered as he grew frustrated with his teammates and Team Kaliber. The first series saw SlasheR at his finest, dominating Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. Round 3 Capture the Flag, in particular, saw SlasheR obliterated Team Kaliber with an absurd 27/7 KD. Round 4 Hardpoint, however, saw SlasheR begin to slip as Team Kaliber ran the clock out and won the map 201-196. This caused SlasheR to take strange fights in the second series' Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint in order to force an opening. However, his aggression often simply put his team out of position.
Supports his teammates
July 30, 2018
SlasheR played defense in a 3-1 win over Red Reserve in the Losers Final at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Despite a dramatic loss to Team Kaliber in the Winners Final, SlasheR was able to keep his cool as his teammates stepped up to take the pressure off of his gameplay. Both TJHaLy and Loony slayed out across the series, leaving SlasheR to simply play support and defense for his team. In Round 4 Hardpoint, for example, SlasheR was able to sit in the hill and pick off players as his teammates engaged for him. This allowed SlasheR the freedom to play how he wanted, slow and steady, instead of forcing him to play aggressively in an attempt to make a hero play.
Nice early round showing in loss
July 29, 2018
SlasheR came to play early but faded as Team Kaliber rose in the 3-1 loss in the Winner's Bracket Final on Day 3 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs, knocking them to the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR did a lot of good in the early rounds. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go absolutely insane, especially in the latter portion of the round. He was a support player early on, but he exploded, ending up with 40 kills and 1:13 on the objective in the win. He really put his foot on the gas down the stretch, and it helped keep Team Kaliber down. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him fall into that support role again, but he never really broke out of it. They almost won but ultimately fell by a score of 6-5. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a good round for him, as he went 18/17 in the loss. He led them for large stretches, but they could not get to the flag to tie the game. Round 4 Hardpoint was bad, as they got blown out 250-102. They were never close to winning, and they limped into the loser's bracket.
Imperfect in win
July 27, 2018
SlasheR was mostly good, but still saw some struggles, in the 3-1 win over Red Reserve on Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR was far from perfect in this win. Round 2 Search & Destroy was an okay round for him. He was mostly solid, putting together a good performance in support of Gunless and Loony. He did, however, have the final two kills of the round, as he notched a double kill in Game 9 to win the game and the round. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his clear worst round. They lost 3-2 in overtime, and were carried by Gunless and TJHaLy. He went just 15/17 in the loss. The Hardpoint rounds were excellent for him. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 36/24, with 1:36 on the objective. He had a bit of a slow start, but he picked it up as Loony started to falter and he dominated from there. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him, Gunless, and Loony put together a three-headed attack that absolutely dominated from start to finish, as they won 250-98 on the backs of that trio.
Versatile performer in win
July 19, 2018
SlasheR produced in many different ways throughout the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 2, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR had a low-key Round 1 Hardpoint, as he decided to focus on the objective rather than slaying. He had a small amount of interactions (13/15), but he managed to accrue 2:00 on the objective. He only slayed when he needed to, as he committed all of his time to the objective. It helped Rise Nation run out to an early lead and win easy. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw SlasheR and Gunless carry the load, but they could not overcome the strong depth from Luminosity, as Luminosity handed Rise Nation their only round loss. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw SlasheR play more of a support-based role, as he added a nice slaying behind strong games from Loony and TJHaLy. The trio was more than good enough to hold off the Luminosity offense, holding them to just one flag cap in the 2-1 win. His best slaying round was Round 4 Hardpoint, where he notched 32 kills. His dominant slaying was key to their win; he kept them afloat early, and helped them come storming back after trailing 230-200.
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.
Shows off his long-range dominance
July 12, 2018
SlasheR stepped up to help his teammates in a 3-2 win over Mindfreak on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
With both Loony and TJHaLy lagging behind, SlasheR was forced to pick up the pace for his team. While he wasn't able to make massive plays, he was albe to provide consistent firepower for his team. This was best seen in respawn rounds, such as Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he was able to provide support for Gunless. However, in Search & Destroy SlasheR had a tendency to fall behind the rest of his team due to an inability to win duels without support. This weakness crippled Rise Nation in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but SlasheR was able to rebound by Round 5 Search & Destroy.
Lacks long-range presence
July 12, 2018
SlasheR was silent in a 3-0 loss to compLexity Gaming on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR, much like the rest of his team, were unable to clutch up against compLexity Gaming. This was despite SlasheR and teammates often being able to keep rounds close up until the clock burned down. In Round 1 Hardpoint, SlasheR struggled to find much momentum due to compLexity Gaming dominating the early game. However, SlasheR rebound the series in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Sainte Maire Du Mont as he could find picks from across the map. He was able to take the map to a Game 11 by focusing his shots on mid lane, but he failed to find kills in the final moments.
Excellent slayer in loss
July 11, 2018
SlasheR did his job as an AR slayer well, but that did not stop Rise Nation from being reverse swept by eUnited on Day 1, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR had a strong performance in this one, save for Round 5 Search & Destroy. He was inconsistent in that final round, as they ended up getting reverse swept by eUnited. The rest of his performance was solid, though, regardless of the wins and losses. He had at least 20 kills (and a positive KD) in each of Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 3 Capture the Flag, and Round 4 Hardpoint, and even topped the 30-kill mark in round four. He was their best player in Round 3 by far, as he led the team in kills (20) and had the only positive KD in the frustrating 2-0 loss, in which Rise's offense was completely shut down. He was also one of the two best players on Rise Nation in their Round 2 Search & Destroy win. He did his job as a slayer and did it well, but his consistent slaying ability was not enough to stop eUnited from putting together a brilliant reverse sweep.
Shuts down lane battles
June 18, 2018
SlasheR took control of a double Grand Finals to win the title of Champions at CWL Anaheim, winning the first series 3-1 and the second series 3-1.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR may not have excelled in the first series, but he was the only player to remotely match Gunless in raw skill. SlasheR's AR role put a massive amount of pressure on Red Reserve's defenses in the first Round 3 Capture the Flag and in the second series, putting the Europeans on the back foot. One of the problems SlasheR encountered was his struggle to take Red Reserve's spawns as his opponents played a defensive game. This countered SlasheR's raw aggression in the first series, but as he slowed down the game in the second series he and Gunless dominated. SlasheR could secure kills as Gunless rushed into lanes, such as in the second Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint. The tight and aggressive coordination allowed both Gunless and SlasheR to score a slew of double and triple kills. However, SlasheR had trouble using his Scorestreaks effectively, such as in the second Round 1 Hardpoint where his full set of Scorestreaks found little value.
Picture of consistency in win
June 16, 2018
SlasheR was a consistent force in the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR played very well despite their Round 1 Hardpoint loss. His teammates all struggled to slay with Luminosity Gaming - especially in the latter stages of the round, as Luminosity really ran away with it. He led his team in kills with 26, and led his team in Hardpoint time with 1:26. He was also the only player on Rise Nation to finish with a positive KD ratio. SlasheR continued his strong play in the next three rounds, and his teammates met him there as they won three in a row to win it. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him net the final kill in Games 5 and 6, as they won 6-0. He went 25/14 in Round 3 Capture the Flag, a 2-1 win that was not as close as it appeared due to an incredible slaying performance from Rise Nation. He finished it off with a solid 22/15 KD, 1:46 of objective time, performance in a dominating 250-100 Round 4 Hardpoint win to seal the match. Overall, Ruse Nation dominated the final three rounds of this one.
Falls to enemy rifles
June 15, 2018
SlasheR was forced to back down in a 3-0 loss to Team Kaliber on Friday of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR had a slow game against Team Kaliber, plain and simple. While normally the main powerhouse of Rise Nation, he couldn't do much in the long-range engagements against Team Kaliber's Kenny and Accuracy. Kenny constantly pressured SlasheR in close-range battles, while Accuracy was able to outgun him in lanes. It wasn't until Round 3 Capture the Flag that SlasheR found much success. There, in the second half of the round, he was able to land a quad kill that almost materialized in a flag capture for Rise Nation. Unfortunately, the spawns were in Team Kaliber's favor.
