Not much to his game
February 14, 2018
Clayster struggled to do much of anything in Tuesday's sweep loss to Evil Geniuses during the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was Clayster's best round, but it was still rather underwhelming. It was not underwhelming for the entirety of the round, however, as he was an excellent slayer in the early stages of the round. However, Evil Geniuses just proved to be too much, and Clayster could not keep up the early round pace, as he ended the round with a 25/24 KD. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him struggle under the might of Evil Geniuses might, led by a ridiculous 16/2 KD by Apathy. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw two players show up for both teams, and Clayster was not one of them for eUnited. He limped to a 16/23 KD, struggling to slay with Apathy and NAMELESS, who dominated for Evil Geniuses.
Around average in loss
February 8, 2018
Clayster had an average time in this match, but eUnited were blown out 3-0 by FaZe Clan to finish off Wednesday's match of the CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a disaster for eUnited, one that set up the rest of the match. They quickly fell behind 100-5, and did not fare well as the round went on, losing 250-89. Clayster was far from terrible, but he was still below average. He had a 23/27 KD, which still led the team in kills. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him get their only game win in Game 3, due to his sniper rifle. He used his sniper throughout the round, but his accuracy varied. Sometimes he was solid, like in Game 3, and others he misfired and ended up killed. It was a frustrating round for him. Round 3 Capture the Flag was the only competitive round, with eUnited falling in overtime 3-2. Clay played rather well (22/21) and had a flag cap that gave them a temporary 2-1 lead, but it was not enough to keep them alive.
EUnited's star sniper
February 7, 2018
Clayster's work on the sniper rifle helped eUnited clutch a 3-2 victory in their series against Splyce on Tuesday in Week 3 of the CWL Pro League Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
Clayster didn't start the series so hot during Round 1 Hardpoint, where he'd get the least amount of hardpoint control time of his team at 42 seconds, with a lackluster KD of 20/29 to boot. Despite leading eUnited to some early victories in Round 2 Search & Destroy, Splyce caught him and the rest of eUnited off guard enough to make them lose six straight games, while Clayster himself only picked up a 4/7 KD. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Clayster suffering again in spite of his team's victory, only notching a paltry 18/24 KD and no flag captures. Round 4 Hardpoint did see Clayster get the most hardpoint control time of his team at 1:23, even as his KD suffered at 26/31. But it was Clayster's skill with the sniper rifle during Round 5 Search & Destroy that earned himself and the rest of eUnited the clutch victory, as Clayster sniped his way to a smooth 10/3 KD.
Fails to win despite strong sniper play
January 14, 2018
Clayster tried his best to get his team a win in this series, but he couldn't prevent the 0-3 loss to Red Reserve on Sunday at CWL New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
Clayster played pretty well all throughout this series, especially when he had his trusty sniper out. Not only was he picking up frags with it, but he always seemed to know where his opponent was early on to stop them from executing flanks of any kind. Unfortunately for him and eUnited, he couldn't do this all day and eventually started to falter. This all came to a head in Capture the Flag where they gave up a poor capture late that sealed their fate.
Mostly good in tough loss
January 14, 2018
Clayster put in a good performance, but eUnited still fell 3-2 to Team Kaliber on the third day of the CWL New Orleans Open.
ANALYSIS
Clayster had a lot of good moments in this match, including playing well in Round 1 Hardpoint. He was a part of a strong three-headed monster with Arcitys and SiLLy, which gave them a nice early lead. Team Kaliber woke up and fought back to win the round, however. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him struggle the most out of any round, but eUnited had more than enough firepower to make up for the invisible Clayster. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a weird round for Clayster. He played well, but his teammates were so proficient in the slaying department that the kills were not there for him in the first half. He ended up getting more kills in the second half, as he started the round extremely aggressively, living in Team Kaliber base and preventing their offense from thriving. He was most consistent in Round 4 Hardpoint, playing well for the majority of it. However, he faltered towards the end of the round as Team Kaliber forced a fifth round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw Clayster put up an incredibly clutch performance. He had the final kill in Game 5, and he had a huge double kill to force a game eleven. However, they could not outlast Team Kaliber and fell in that decisive game.
Plays Akimbo with double pistols
January 13, 2018
Clayster pulled out wacky strategies in an exciting 3-2 win over Splyce on Day 1 of CWL New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
Clayster went Akimbo style against Splyce, and it actually worked. Clayster and his crew struggled to make impact in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. This was likely due to both rounds being on London Docks and eUnited failing to watch their flanks. Round 4 Hardpoint, however, saw Clayster, in typical Clayster fashion, go off the rails. Going Akimbo style with double pistols, he was surprisingly able to harass the flanks of Splyce as he tore through their defenses.
Late-round star in win
January 12, 2018
Clayster was the star of the final two rounds in the 3-1 win over Echo Fox on Friday. The win opened up the CWL New Orleans Open.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a struggle for both Clayster and eUnited as a whole. They lost the round 250-96, and it was as much of a blowout as it sounds. Clayster and his teammates looked out of sorts in the round, and Echo Fox took advantage. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a reversal of fortune for eUnited, but Clayster still saw his struggles. He had a key kill to prevent a defuse and win a game, but other than that he was more of a support-based player than his teammates -- Arcitys and SiLLy mostly. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Clayster come out of his shell and eUnited kept their play rolling. Clayster was excellent in terms of slaying in the round, going 21/12. He was able to play his life on multiple occasions, which helped tilt the map in eUnited's favor often. Round 4 Hardpoint was where he shined, ending the round with an unbelievable 31/17 KD ratio, and added 1:20 on the objective on top of that. He was everywhere, and he was even more deadly once he earned the Flamethrower. Echo Fox had no answer for Clayster, as they opened pool play with a win.
Key playmaker despite weak KDs
December 18, 2017
Despite having below-average KDs, Clayster was instrumental in securing eUnited's series win in Round 3 Capture the Flag against Enigma6 during Day 1 of Northern Arena.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was known for making some heroic plays during CWL Dallas, and he'd attempt them again against Enigma6. His heroics cost him in terms of KD, however, as during Round 1 Hardpoint he'd score a paltry 22/25 KD, and an 8/10 KD in Round 2 Search & Destroy. But at least for this series, the heroics paid off, especially during Round 3 Capture the Flag when Clayster scored the game-winning flag capture in the final seconds of the round. Round 4 Hardpoint showed he could still slay, however, as his KD for that particular round was a nasty 25/14, easily putting Enigma6 in the 100-point club.
Makes some questionable calls
December 17, 2017
Clayster overthought the series in a 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming at the Northern Showdown Championships.
ANALYSIS
Clasyter had both good and bad ideas during this series. To start, his most noticeable poor calls came in Round 5 Search & Destroy on Ardennes Forest. There, Clayster spread the rank of eUnited extremely thin for little reason. Every round Luminosity Gaming hit Bombsite B but Clayster was almost always at Bombsite A and in a position where he could give no support to his team, essentially giving Luminosity Gaming consistent 4-vs-3 teamfights. However, Clayster was excellent in Round 3 Capture the Flag where he was able to stall out the game thanks to two coutner-captures. As soon as Clayster spawned in while Luminosity Gaming made a push, Clayster wisely went for Luminosity Gaming's flag, stalling the game while is team spawned in.
Easily fills the support role
December 17, 2017
Clayster played to support his team in a 3-1 victory over FaZe Clan on Day 2 of the Northern Showdown.
ANALYSIS
Rather than attempting to slay, Clayster focused more on support as he switched between assault rifles and SMGs this series. The supportive role worked out in Clayster's favor since FaZe Clan attempted to break eUnited's ranks with flanks. In return, it let Clayster's teammates shine. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, Clayster played close to base in order to give his team the space needed to go roam. He gave a solid hold as FaZe Clan trickled into the base where Clayster could easily pick them off. And in Round 1 Hardpoint, Clayster was in charge of spawn control alongside Arcitys in what turned out to be a swift round.
Solid performance in win
December 17, 2017
Clayster had a nice game in the sweep win over Ground Zero on Day 2 of the Northern Arena Showdown. The win secured eUnited's spot in the top three of the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was a very stable and steady performer in the win over Ground Zero. Round 1 Hardpoint was an excellent all-around performance by eUnited and by Clayster himself. He was a force in both the slaying department and on the objective. All four of eUnited's members played well in the round. Clayster had a big start and end to Round 2 Search & Destroy, playing well through the first four games, and having the round winning kill in game ten. Clayster went nuts in the first half of Round 3 Capture the Flag, slaying everywhere. He and the rest of eUnited had a harder time of it in the second half, as Ground Zero fought back to force overtime. Clayster played excellent defense in overtime, as they capped off the sweep.
Falls to old rivals
December 11, 2017
Clayster failed to repeat previous successes and is knocked out of the playoffs in a 1-3 loss against FaZe Clan on Day 3 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Despite Clayster beating FaZe Clan earlier in the weekend, he simply couldn't repeat that success in this series. Starting well in Round 1 Hardpoint on Sainte Marie Du Mont, he led his team well to hold points by covering corners and camping. But things quickly fell apart. Round 2 Search & Destroy on London Docks saw Clayster fall prey to FaZe Clan's aggressive roaming as he struggled to coordinate his flank's defense. By the end of Round 3 Capture the Flag, Clasyter was burnt out, dropping a negative KD while being unable to combat FaZe Clan's map control.
Carries his team into a heartbreaking defeat
December 10, 2017
One can't fault Clayster for lack of effort, as he made several high-profile plays throughout eUnited's series against Team Kaliber, but his efforts proved futile as eUnited was defeated in a tense 3-2 loss on the winners' semifinals of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was a human highlight reel for eUnited throughout their winners' semifinals match against Team Kaliber. Clayster may not have had the best Round 1 Hardpoint with a 20/29 KD, but he did make some high profile kills that saved his teammates at key moments. He also made a run at the end of Round 3 Capture the Flag that was nothing short of heroic, as he sprinted through enemy scorestreaks to earn a game-winning capture for eUnited. But ultimately Clayster was feeling the burden of carrying his team, as Clayster also made key blunders in certain spots, most notably in Round 4 Hardpoint where his KD went negative with 25/32, and in both Search & Destroy rounds where his performance was inconsistent at best (especially with a 12/9 KD in Round 5).
Plays aggresively with utility
December 10, 2017
Clayster led his team to a decisive victory in a 3-1 win against Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Clayster may have stumbled out of the gate in Round 1 Hardpoint, but he rebounded with strong strategies against the streaky Luminosity Gaming. Clayster, learning from Round 1 Hardpoint, was determined not to let Luminosity Gaming set-up in subsequent rounds. To do this, Clayster had him and his team employ smoke grenades and stun grenades in order to blind his opponents as he rushed them. This worked beautifully in Round 2 Search and Destroy on USS Texas and Round 3 Capture the Flag on London Docks. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, this allowed Clayster to play very aggressively as the smoke grenades provided enough cover for Clayster to rush in with an SMG and clear LG's base.
Tries to outmaneuver FaZe Clan
December 10, 2017
Clayster switched to the SMG in an awkward 3-2 win against FaZe Clan on Day 2 of CWL Dallas.
ANALYSIS
The much-anticipated match between Clayster and FaZe Clan came a season too late, but Clayster still gave it his all. Normally known for his assault rifle skills, Clayster switched to the SMG as he let Arcitys handle long-range duties. This worked well for Clayster for the entire series. However, the call is still a questionable on. Despite Clayster partnering with Prestinni to pressure FaZe Clan's defense with SMGs, Arcitys struggled to lay down suppressing fire with his rifles. This put Clayster in several sticky situations, especially in Game 9 of Round 5 Search & Destroy, where only his veteran game sense allowed him to escape.
