Team Kaliber
Barely breaks Top 8 at CWL Atlanta with TK
March 13, 2018
Chino, along with the rest of Team Kaliber, managed to break into the CWL Atlanta playoffs only to be knocked out of the running within three games, only securing themselves a Top 8 finish.
Team Kaliber clawed their way through a bloody Pool B in the early stages of CWL Atlanta, earning themselves a second-place finish in their pool with a 3-1 series count just behind Luminosity Gaming. During the evening hours of Day 2 of CWL Atlanta, Team Kaliber faced off against Team EnVyUs from Pool D, and unfortunately for Team Kaliber, they were handed a heartbreaking defeat in a tense match that went all the way to deep in Round 5 Search & Destroy. Subsequently, in the losers' bracket of the playoffs, while TK were able to hold off Echo Fox, they met their demise at the hands of European upstart team Red Reserve. Chino himself has said while the loss stung him, "I'm glad that I'm finally playing at a top level again." He's eagerly awaiting playing at Birmingham.
Solid showing in sweep
March 10, 2018
Chino had a nice game in the sweep win over Ghost Gaming on Day 2 of CWL Atlanta.
Chino had three nice rounds, and some key moments, in the win over Ghost Gaming. They started off the match with a easy Round 1 Hardpoint win as one would hope. They won 250-113, and they held Ghost Gaming below the 100-point mark for the majority of the round. Chino was good, but unspectacular, finishing 26/23. He came up clutch in Round 2 Search & Destroy, getting the final kill in Games 1, 7, and 8. He was great, especially in the latter portion of the round. His strong late game play came up again in Round 3 Capture the Flag. He was a solid slayer throughout the round but his big moment came up late. He made a stellar defensive stand as the second half expired to force overtime, which they would win easily.
Huge start to loss
March 10, 2018
Chino had a strong start, but it did not propel Team Kaliber to a win, as they lost 3-2 in a reverse sweep to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
Chino had an unbelievable display in Round 1 Hardpoint, putting up 44 kills in the win. He was more of a support-based player in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but they won all the same. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw the tides turn towards Luminosity Gaming, though Chino had a valiant effort. He help dominate the kill feed, especially in the first half, but stingy defense by Luminosity kept them in it. The second half went Luminosity's way, and they started the reverse sweep. Round 4 Hardpoint was a middling display for Chino. He went 29/33, struggling to string kills together as Luminosity rode their round three momentum into a strong Hardpoint showing. Round 5 Capture the Flag saw Chino fight to keep them alive, winning Game 9 with an excellent time waste to keep them from losing the game, but they ultimately lost the round.
Bullies Red Reserve around
March 1, 2018
Chino landed a surprising 3-0 stomp over Red Reserve thanks to his aggression on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
Chino didn't need too much of a gameplan this series, due to a weak Red Reserve showing up. All Chino and Red Reserve had to do was bully the defensive Europeans as they took easy control of the map. In Round 2 Search & Destroy on Ardennes Forest, this meant Chino always tried to take the high ground in ruins. In Round 3 Capture the Flag on Ardennes Forest, Chino prioritized mid-map in order to guarantee flag pulls and captures. This worked especially well in the first half of Overtime when Chino was able to help Accuracy score a quick flag capture.
Good Hardpoint in loss
March 1, 2018
Chino was a Hardpoint monster in the 3-2 loss to Team Kaliber, on Wednesday's Week 6 CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
The two round wins for Team Kaliber were the two Hardpoint rounds: Round 1 and Round 4. Chino was great in both of them. He went 21/15 in the first one, which was an incredibly easy win for Team Kaliber. They held Echo Fox to just 106 points, and were miles ahead of their opponents at every turn. It was as big of a blowout as the score suggested. Round 4 Hardpoint was more competitive, but Chino was great all the same. He was consistent as well, getting them an early lead with 10 quick kills, and leading them to the finish line with a 36 kill round. He was incredible. He did not, however, perform well in their three round losses, something that may not be a coincidence.
Gets countered by Mindfreak
February 27, 2018
Chino was blown apart by Mindfreak in a 3-1 loss in Week 6 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
Chino had no punch in this series, as all of Team Kaliber struggled to strike Mindfreak. Things started poorly in Round 1 Hardpoint where Chino ended in the double negatives, but he found some stable ground in Round 2 Search & Destroy. Chino stole Game 4 by holding upper Ruins, snapping down two members of Mindfreak as they stood out in the open. After that map, however, Chino struggled to make his presence felt.
Comes out swinging but ultimately gets fatigued
February 22, 2018
Chino started strong but ultimately ended up fizzling in Team Kaliber's 3-2 victory over Vitality on Day 8 of the CWL Pro League Division A.
Chino knows how to make a lasting first impression against his opponents. He did just that in Round 1 Hardpoint, where his deaths were only in the single digits, scoring a double-positive KD of 25/9. He went barely negative in Round 2 Search & Destroy with 7/9, being the last one to die as Vitality stole the round victory. Round 3 Capture the Flag did see Chino get a flag capture under his belt, as well as a decent KD of 22/16. However, Chino tanked big time in Round 4 Hardpoint where he'd go double negative in KD with 13/29 as Vitality again would swipe a round victory from underneath Team Kaliber's legs. Chino helped his team clutch up in Round 5 Search & Destroy, but again Chino's KD would suffer with a negative 5/6.
Gets trampled beneath Rise Nation
February 20, 2018
Chino shatters against Rise Nation in a 3-0 loss on Week 5, Day 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, Division A.
Chino had a disastrous day. Not only would he go kill-less in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but he likely cost his team Round 3 Capture the Flag. Starting with Round 2 Search & Destroy, Chino scored an inexcusable 0/8 KD in a nine game round. The score very easily held his team back as he became fodder for Rise Nation's streaks. But everyone has a bad round every once in a while. However, the biggest whiff came in Round 3 Capture the Flag when Chino teamkilled Theory as the two of them attempted to rally a second point off of Kenny's clutch flag capture. The disastrous teamkill ended any chance of Team Kaliber making a come-back.
Makes tiny mistakes in tight loss
February 2, 2018
Chino took hold of the early game in a devastating 2-3 loss to Rise Nation on Day 6 of Stage 1 CWL Pro League.
Chino seemed to have control over Rise Nation in the early stages of this series, but by Round 3 Capture the Flag the match quickly fell out of Chino's control as Team Kaliber made some extraordinarily sloppy mistakes. In the first half or Round 3, Chino would make a strange decision after a flag capture. Instead of watching the mid-cross to spot out Rise Nation's obvious spawns, Chino and his team made a mad dash for their base. This allowed Rise Nation to cut them off and wipe Team Kaliber out for a flag capture. These kinds of mistakes are what allowed Rise Nation to win over the normally clutch Team Kaliber.
Some big slaying rounds in win
January 31, 2018
Chino was one of Team Kaliber's main slayers in the 3-2 win over Mindfreak to finish off Tuesday's CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 play.
Chino was one of Team Kaliber's main slayers throughout the win, and he fulfilled this role in Round 1 Hardpoint. He had 27 kills, and was a consistent force in the round. However, that ranked third on his team, mostly because Kaliber absolutely dominated Mindfreak in every facet, nearly keeping them to 100 points. Chino was very well balanced, adding 1:17 on his objective to his strong slaying performance. He did struggle in the next two rounds, as Mindfreak made up for the bad loss in Round 1 to dominate Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag. Chino was barely visible in either round, and Team Kaliber were outclassed in both. The second round saw them win two games, and the third round saw them get a lone flag cap. Chino and Team Kaliber turned it around in Round 4 Hardpoint, with a gritty, hard-fought and close win that saw both teams finish over the 200-point mark. Chino was the MVP of the fourth round, joint-leading them in kills at 24, and was the only member to finish with a positive KD ratio. He also had over a minute on the objective. Without his unmatched slaying ability, Team Kaliber would have lost this round, as he provided most of their firepower and opened up the map for his teammates. Round 5 Search & Destroy was a very balanced round, with all four members of Team Kaliber playing well and picking each other up.
Climbs into CoD godhood
January 25, 2018
Chino ascended to become the "Clutch God" in a 3-2 win over Red Reserve on Day 3 of Stage 1 CWL Pro League.
Chino, in typical Team Kaliber fashion, pulled off the impossible. He was both solid through out the entire series while making some of the best plays seen this year. The highlight was in Round 4 Hardpoint on Gibraltar. Chino was a thorn in Red Reserve's side, constantly denying points while flipping hills for his team. But the big moment came in the final seconds when, points away from Red Reserve winning, was able to go on a nine-kill streak in one fight to win the entire map. Hoping in and out of cover, he held the hill for his team, scored kills and was even able to call in Scorestreaks all while being one shot away from death.
Snipes his way to victory
January 25, 2018
Chino's quick and lethal work with a sniper rifle earned a dramatic clutch victory for Team Kaliber against Echo Fox on Wednesday during Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
TK all day? More like Chino's aim all day, at least when there's a sniper rifle in his hand. Chino's stats are indicative of his expertise in Search & Destroy rounds, even if his respawn rounds suffer somewhat. Case in point: in the hectic bloodbath that was Round 1 Hardpoint, Chino went negative in KD with 31/36. But even when Team Kaliber lost Round 2 Search & Destroy, Chino's work with the sniper rifle was masterful and offered a set up that paid off in the final round. Chino lagged behind somewhat in kills during Round 3 Capture the Flag, indicated by his 10/16 KD, although he still tallied a flag capture during the round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Chino's slip up a bit with a mere 15/24 KD. A clear answer as to why Chino's on Team Kaliber presented itself during Round 5 Search & Destroy, as Chino's sniper rifle expertise was made evidently clear by a 2-for-1 collateral shot at the very end (resulting in an overall 7/3 KD) sealing TK's 3-2 victory against Echo Fox.
Forced to think on his feet
January 23, 2018
Chino tried to steady his team in a 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming on Tuesday during Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
OpTic Gaming came into this match having done research on Team Kaliber and it was up to Chino to think on his feet. OpTic Gaming's core strategy was simple: out-muscle Team Kaliber. This surprisingly worked against the smart and flexible Chino. But despite that, Chino still made OpTic Gaming work hard for their win by playing very, very scrappy. Round 4 Hardpoint was indicative of this dynamic. Chino and Team Kaliber fought tooth-and-nail for every point, jumping constantly into the hill to soak and deny time. But in a hectic final fight, Chino just couldn't fight through the Green Wall.
Knows when to use his streaks
January 23, 2018
Chino played well in a 3-0 sweep over eRa Eternity on Tuesday in Stage 1 of the CWL Pro League.
Chino was a jack of all trades in this series, doing whatever he could to bring his team a win. He slayed well in the opening Hardpoint round to keep his team ahead before continuing to lay it on thick the rest of the way. His biggest play of the game came when he wasn't even picking up kills. He used his Fighter Pilot scorestreak at the perfect moment and gave his team crucial vision at the right time. With that knowledge in hand, Accuracy swooped in and picked off the flag carrier, shutting down a nice flag push. This was yet another example of the excellent teamwork that Kaliber has and shows why they are the team to beat in the Pro League.
Named MVP in Grand Final win
January 15, 2018
Chino picked up a narrow win against Luminosity Gaming and is named Team Kaliber's MVP at a tense back-to-back grand finals match at CWL New Orleans.
While Team Kaliber suffered their first defeat at the hands of Luminosity Gaming, they bounced back for the second game and confirm their place as titans of Call of Duty. Chino, in particular, emerged as the MVP of the match thanks to his consistent slaying across the two series. In the first set, Chino just dropped kills. Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar saw Chino drop consistent double kills against Luminosity, though that wasn't enough to break open the series. It wasn't until the second series that those kills turned into wins. Chino began to fight scrappy, throwing bodies at Luminosity so they'd have to fight for every point. Early on, Chino picked up a clutch double kill in the second Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks by getting two kills through a wall of barrels, allowing his team to win the round by just one point.
