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.
Does the unthinkable in Search & Destroy
March 31, 2018
While Clayster didn't have the best respawn rounds, his extraordinary performance in Round 2 Search & Destroy helped his team eUnited pull off a 3-0 upset victory against Rise Nation on Day 1 of CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Clayster wanted to prove that eUnited are back, and after a loss to Echo Fox earlier in Day 1 of CWL Birmingham, he had the opportunity to do just that with Rise Nation, and he took it. Round 1 Hardpoint was a standard Clayster performance with a KD of 30/27 and 1:05 of hardpoint control time that gave eUnited the win by a 110-second margin. Round 2 Search & Destroy was where Clayster, well, destroyed the competition, especially in the dramatic final game (Game 10) where he easily thwarted a deep flanking play by TJHaLy and earns himself an overall triple-positive KD for the round at 12/4. Clayster fell behind a bit in Round 3 Capture the Flag with a negative KD of 14/20, but he still contributed to eUnited's round victory with a flag capture and seals the upset sweep of Rise Nation.
Plans around Splyce's tactics
March 22, 2018
Clayster came into this series prepared to 3-0 Splyce on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1, Division B, securing eUnited's seeding for the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs in the process.
ANALYSIS
Clayster's preparation was abundantly clear. Not only that, but Clayster absolutely tore through Splcye with top-tier slaying. Clayster started strong on Round 1 Hardpoint he scored a 6/1 KD by the second hill, and an 18/8 KD by the second set of rotations. This was thanks to Clayster playing in lane rather than on the point in order to pressure Splyce back. But his tactical mind was highlighted in Round 2 Search & Destroy. Clayster was able to rebound from a 5-3 deficit by playing defensively against Splyce. Instead of fighting in teamfights, Clayster tried to hold high ground and corner in order to pick off Splyce as they came into his cross-hairs.
Strong middle rounds in loss
March 15, 2018
Clayster surrounded two strong rounds with two weak ones in the 3-1 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of Week 3 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
The two Hardpoint rounds, Round 1 and Round 4, were Clayster's worst rounds of the match. He struggled to below 1.00 KDs in each (23/27 and 32/40) as they dropped both rounds. The last round was better than the first, though. He was a big reason why they initially got the lead after their big deficit; his four-kill streak on the back of SiLLy's seven-kill streak and Arcitys eight-kill streak got them their first lead of the round. He did not, however, put together a complete round in either. After a very effective support-based Round 2 Search & Destroy -- their sole round win -- he was excellent in Round 3 Capture the Flag. He ran out to a 9/1 start, and did not stop there. He and Arcitys kept the round competitive, as their 27 and 26 kills respectively held up their team. Luminosity's strong depth overcame them, however, as it did all match.
Tries to save the late game
March 9, 2018
Clayster stumbled in a 3-0 loss to FaZe Clan on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Clayster's woes only continue to grow. After two weeks of rest to practice and scrim, many of the same problems rest within eUnited's plays. Mainly, Clasyter and his team can't slay out in the current meta. Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie saw Clasyter end with a double negative KD, demonstrating eUnited's lack of consistent slaying. Round 2 Search & Destroy showed how eUnited struggled to coordinate as Clasyter was often caught in mid-map with his teammates as he tried to press FaZe Clan. Clasyter, however, began to carry his team in the first half of Round 3 Capture the Flag, only to quickly fall again.
Will play at CWL Atlanta
March 9, 2018
Clayster will play at CWL Atlanta, the slayer relayed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
There was some concern Clayster might opt to be with an ailing family member, but it seems as if the person's condition is stable enough for the slayer to play in Atlanta. eUnited face an uphill climb at the third LAN event of the competitive year, but with Clayster in tow there's certainly a chance for the roster to rattle off a string of wins.
Potentially unable to attend CWL Atlanta
March 5, 2018
Clayster might not be able to attend CWL Atlanta, as he is dealing with a family emergency.
ANALYSIS
With respect to the player and his family, we'll avoid going into too much detail pertaining to the reasoning behind the potential absence. However, the loss of Clayster could be a major impact on his fellow teammates, who haven't looked very strong throughout the first two weeks of the CWL Pro League Stage 1. With CWL Atlanta kicking off on Friday, we'll likely find out whether Clayster will be able to attend the event in due time.
May have injured hand
March 3, 2018
Clayster may have injured his hand prior to CWL Atlanta, evidenced by his tweet featuring a bandaged wrap around his wrist.
ANALYSIS
Always the humorous type on social media, there is a chance Clayster could simply be trolling the audience, but the injury certainly looks the part given the extent of the bandaging. With CWL Atlanta beginning on Friday, it'll be an interesting storyline to monitor, particularly given the struggles eUnited have in during Division B of the CWL Pro League Stage 1.
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.
