Shook off poor first round in win
August 19, 2018
Clayster started off slowly but left that behind to finish well, as eUnited beat Luminosity Gaming 3-1 on Championship Sunday of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships, as they continued their run in the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
Clayster struggled in the first round of the match but more than made up for it in the final three rounds. He started off well as eUnited came out on fire in Round 1 Hardpoint, but he faded as Luminosity woke up and played well to take over the round. eUnited made a comeback attempt, but it fell short. Clayster ended up going 30/37 in the loss. Round 2 Search & Destroy started as the previous round ended, with Luminosity running out to a 4-0 lead and eUnited looking lost. Clayster played well in those rounds, and he paced them throughout their comeback attempt and brought them to a game eleven win. He was clutch, posting the final kill in Games 8, 9, and 11. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw eUnited run out to a 3-1 lead in the first half and sit on it with staunch defensive play. He had one of his team's flag caps, and went 25/15, leading the lobby in kills. Round 4 Hardpoint was an up and down one for Clayster, as he struggled early on, but picked it up late to be a solid support player. He was not in the spotlight like he was in the previous two rounds, but he was a very quality depth piece in the win.
Leads a frantic team
August 19, 2018
Clayster struggled to lead a nervous team in a 3-1 loss to Team Kaliber on Day 4 of the 2018 Call of Duty World Championships.
ANALYSIS
Clayster' leadership skills are top-notch, but even he struggled to rally a disorganized and nervous eUnited. Despite this, Clayster still lead his team in slaying potential. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Clayster was able to land a five killstreak that helped his team get back into the game, while his sniper skill in Round 2 Search & Destroy landed him first blood kills in four of eUnited's rounds. Then, he would lead his team in Round 3 Capture the Flag, ending the first half with an 8/1 KD. But his lackluster and nervous teammates made Clayster unable to capitalize on his slaying in Round 3 Capture the Flag or in Round 1 Hardpoint, indicated by the frantic call-outs his teammates made during the Round 1 Hardpoint listen-in.
Nearly perfect in win
August 18, 2018
Clayster was excellent from the start of the sweep win over UNILAD Esports on Day 4 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships, securing a spot in the winner's semifinal.
ANALYSIS
Clayster put on an utterly dominant display in this sweep win. The early portion of Round 1 Hardpoint did not reflect that, however, as he struggled out of the gate initially. UNILAD got all over eUnited, leading them 139-69 at one point. Clayster and the rest of eUnited quickly woke up, however, and put together an impressive comeback to win the round. Clayster helped secure it with an excellent defense of the objective to get them to the 250 mark. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him pick up right where he left off, pacing them with 13 kills in the win. He was consistent, and his presence was impossible to deal with. He secured the win with an ace in game nine, which was a cherry on top of his excellent performance. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw eUnited pitch a shutout, and Clayster was solid individually. He was not as dominant as he was at the end of the first round and throughout the second round, but his 16-kill showing was a very nice addition to their attack.
Snowballs his team to victory
August 18, 2018
Clayster hyped his team to crush Red Reserve 3-0 on Day 3 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
Taking advantage of Red Reserve's notoriously slow starts, Clayster was able to roll over his European rivals thanks to his teammates Arcitys and Prestinni. Both Arcitys' and Prestinni's slaying allowed Clayster to sit back in his AR role and call shots for his team. His leadership skills were on full display in Round 3 Capture the Flag where, in the second half of overtime, he was able to guide Arcitys through mid-map for a series-winning flag capture that beat Red Reserve's 50-second capture time.
Up and down in loss
July 29, 2018
Clayster had his good and bad rounds as eUnited were eliminated 3-1 by Red Reserve on Day 3 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was inconsistent at best in this loss. Round 3 Capture the Flag was by far his best round. He was their leader, and he helped put them out to a 2-1 lead because of his slaying. They eventually blew the lead and lost in overtime, but Clayster kept up his strong slaying with a 24 kill performance, leading his team in kills and coming second in the lobby. He kept going as his teammates fell off, keeping the round rather close with good defense. Round 2 Search & Destroy was also a very good one for him, as he and Prestinni did the heavy lifting for eUnited. The entire team was all great at best, solid at worst, and that gave them an easy 6-2 win. Round 1 Hardpoint was nothing to speak of for Clayster, as he went 19/25 with just four seconds on the objective in the loss. They were pretty much blown out, and Clayster did not help matters. It was more of the same at the beginning of Round 4 Hardpoint, but he was a key piece of their almost-comeback. They could not complete it, as Red Reserve were far too close to winning, but it was a valiant effort - and Clayster was a big part of it.
Up and down in bad loss
July 13, 2018
Clayster helped in the wins and did little in the losses of the reverse-sweep loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 3, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
The first two rounds, and the last three rounds, tell a completely different story for eUnited. Round 1 Hardpoint was a beautifully won round, as they came roaring back from behind to complete a nice comeback. Clayster struggled early in the round, but he ended up having a strong second half as they started their comeback. Round 2 Search & Destroy was another win, but Clayster struggled. eUnited played an incredible aggressive game, making risky push after risky push, trying to get OpTic Gaming off balance. It worked, because they won the round, but Clayster fell victim to OpTic due to his risky challenges more often than not. However, that was the end of the good times for eUnited. They lost the next three rounds, and lost rather badly; Round 3 Capture the Flag was a 6-2 defeat, Round 4 Hardpoint was a 250-115 loss, and Round 5 Search & Destroy was a 6-1 loss. They were blown out in each of the three rounds, and everyone really struggled to do much once OpTic Gaming started to roll.
Inspires his teammates to win
July 11, 2018
Clayster hyped up his teammates in a 3-1 win over UNILAD eSports on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was his vibrant self again this series, leading his team with an even louder vigor than ever before, to take a key series to secure playoff hopes. This effort was also helped by his solid KD that shutdown UNILAD Esports. In Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks, Clasyter led the charge early on by keeping his teammates in the game as they warmed up. Landing two separate five killstreaks between the first Statue Hardpoint and Docks Warehouse, Clasyter used his assault rifle to dominate the long sight lines of the map. But as his teammates made slowly plays, his constant (and loud) encouragement quickly allowed eUnited to outpace UNILAD Esports by Round 3 Capture the Flag.
Strong late game in win
July 11, 2018
Clayster overcame early struggles to put in a great final two rounds of the reverse sweep win over Rise Nation on Day 1, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster struggled in Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag, for the most part. He went just 22/35 in the opening round, pitching in a little in the latter stages, but struggling to slay with a strong performance from Rise Nation overall. Round 2 Search & Destroy was similar, as he struggled to slay until the end of the round. He put in a good performance in each of Games 7 and 8, which were two of the three wins for eUnited in the round loss. While they won Round 3 Capture the Flag 2-1, on the back of strong defensive play, Clayster struggled. He went just 14/17 in the round, as he was the only member of eUnited to come in under the 20 kill mark. He exploded in Round 4 Hardpoint, netting 40 kills in the 250-207 win. He did not start them off, as Felony was the early leader for them, but he took the reins and ran with it all the way through to the end of the round. His slaying ability was a key reason why the Rise Nation comeback could not finish the job. Round Hardpoint was a dominant round for Felony, and everyone else on eUnited filled in the blanks behind him to finish off the nine-game win.
Solid showing in win
June 7, 2018
Clayster was a solid contributor in the 3-1 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 2, Week 4, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster had a nice performance in this win. Round 1 Hardpoint was a hot start for him, as he went 29/20 with 1:39 on the objective; he put together a strong two-way showing, from the beginning of the round where he helped get them out to an early lead, to when he had a huge kill to spring the break that got them to 250 points. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him carry his solid performance from the previous round, as he sniped OpTic Gaming early and often. He had three kills in the first game, the final kill in Game 8, and three snipes to finish the job to win Game 9, winning the round 6-3. Clayster carried his team in Round 3 Capture the Flag. His three teammates were woefully outslayed, but Clayster and his 22 kills kept the round competitive. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him play very well as they lead 223-52, but he struggled down the stretch as they gave up 100 points before winning 250-153.
Swings the entire series
May 31, 2018
Clayster railed Rise Nation in the late game in a 3-2 reverse-sweep win on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster pulled off the momentum swing eUnited desperately needed. The first two rounds seemed entirely in Rise Nation's favor as Clayster and his team struggled to win long-range fights against SlasheR. However, by Round 3 Capture the Flag Clayster popped off. Landing an extraordinary nine-kill streak, he was able to steal the round by raining down Scorestreaks onto Rise Nation. And when Clayster heats up, he hypes up the rest of his team. Clayster's inspired leadership allowed eUnited to steal Round 4 Hardpoint and Round 5 Search & Destroy from underneath Rise Nation's nose.
Reaches his final form in the last two rounds
May 31, 2018
It took a round loss to shake Clayster out of his complacency, as eUnited were able to reverse their fortunes with a 3-1 series victory over Mindfreak on Wednesday of Week 3 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster needed to be reminded not to underestimate the potential of Mindfreak. A decisive loss in Round 1 Hardpoint was a shocking wake-up call for Clayster, suffering through the round with a negative KD of 18/26 and a loss by 73 points. Early on in Round 2 Search & Destroy, it looked like Clayster didn't learn his lesson, as Mindfreak gained an early lead, but Clayster woke up in time to break even in KD with 8/8 and clutch the round in a Game 11 gunfight. From here, Clayster applied his full range of skills against Mindfreak, as in Round 3 Capture the Flag, he scored a solid KD of 22/15, allowing his teammates to come back yet again from an early Mindfreak lead. Round 4 Hardpoint almost slipped away from eUnited, but Clayster's stands on the hardpoints, where he claimed 1:41 of hardpoint control time and a 33/29 KD, allowed eUnited to clutch the series 3-1.
Gets super confident after win against Ghost Gaming
April 24, 2018
Clayster got a confidence boost after helping his team eUnited score a 3-0 shutout against Ghost Gaming in the Winners Semifinals of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was his usual boisterous self throughout CWL Seattle, but he was even more so after they took down Open Bracket upstarts Ghost Gaming to advance to the CWL Seattle Winners Semifinals. The match started out relatively evenly when eUnited was able to stop Ghost Gaming from winning Round 1 Hardpoint by less than 30 seconds, Clayster's contribution to that victory being a barely negative KD of 28/31 and 39 seconds of hardpoint control time. Things looked to go in favor of Ghost Gaming early in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as Ghost Gaming won three straight games at first, but eUnited answered back with six straight game victories in response, as Clayster notched a positive KD of 5/4. Round 3 Capture the Flag was no contest, as eUnited scored four flag captures collectively while Ghost Gaming scored none, while Clayster scored a cool KD of 17/11. Clayster was so pumped from the shutout that he led eUnited on a collective teabagging session of a Ghost Gaming corpse in the final seconds of the match.
Excellent start to sweep loss
April 22, 2018
Clayster started off hot, but eUnited still were swept by Rise Nation in the loser's bracket Final of CWL Seattle, seeing them eliminated from the tournament and placing in third place.
ANALYSIS
Clayster had a very hot start to this match, putting together an incredible start to Round 1 Hardpoint. He was the best player on the map in the early goings, and it got eUnited off to a quick lead. While eUnited faltered, Rise Nation rose, and eUnited lost the round, Clayster finished with a strong 23/19 KD. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him continue to play well, as he and Arcitys led the team and kept them afloat during a strong game from Rise Nation. While they only squeaked three wins in the round, he was certainly good on an individual level. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him stumble from his heights in previous rounds, as he went 15/15 in the final round of the match.
Runs assault rifles again
April 7, 2018
Clayster dominated Rise Nation with an unusual set up in a 3-0 sweep on Day 1 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Clayster and eUnited are beginning to look like the only team to consistently counter Rise Nation. Using an unusual set up of two ARs and two SMGs, Clayster looked far more comfortable and confident with the off-meta loadout where Arcitys and Clayster could score important picks. Clayster's leadership skills were also a massive boon. The trust he has built with his team allowed him to rebound a flag capture in the final moments of a chaotic Round 3 Capture the Flag, as he could trust his teammates to cover his flanks.
Starts strong before falling off
April 2, 2018
Clasyter failed to snowball leads in a 3-0 loss to Reckless in the Loser's Bracket of CWL Birmingham, slotting into 13th-16th place.
ANALYSIS
Clayster started out looking like his old self only to slowly fall apart across the series. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Clayster began the map with a seven killstreak that shut out Reckless from almost two full hill rotations. But despite this extremely strong groundwork to snowball the game, Clayster lost the map due to an inability to push out Reckless' spawns or use his Scorestreaks effectively.
