Inconsistent in win
August 16, 2018
Scump was not the most consistent player in the sweep win over Supremacy on Day 2 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
ANALYSIS
Scump had two up and down rounds in this match. Both his Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy paralleled each other. He started off slowly, struggling to find his footing, and ended up picking up the pace down the stretch of each round, and finishing them strongly. His highlight came in the end of the first round, as he made some huge kills to prevent Supremacy from gaining map control. The rounds themselves could not be more different, though. The first round saw them trail Supremacy in the first half of the round only to run away with it from the 150 point mark on, and the second round saw them win the first five games before taking the round 6-1. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Scump play well from start to finish, and OpTic shut out Supremacy 3-0, in what was an easy round for all intents and purposes.
Struggled from beginning to end
July 28, 2018
Scump never got his wheels in motion in the 3-0 loss to UNILAD Esports, as OpTic Gaming were eliminated from the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs on its second day.
ANALYSIS
Scump really struggled throughout this match, as did most of OpTic Gaming. They were outslayed pretty badly in each of Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 2 Search & Destroy, and Round 3 Capture the Flag, as Scump and his teammates were simply outplayed by UNILAD. Scump went 20/28 in the first round, 13/20 in the third round, and had an ineffective second round - they simply could not slay with UNILAD.
Fades in final round
July 20, 2018
Scump played well, but did not end the match in great shape, as OpTic Gaming fell 3-2 to Luminosity Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump started off this match excellently. He put together a strong first round after starting it off slowly, and capped it off with a seven-kill streak to finish off Luminosity and secure the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him play a solid second fiddle to Crimsix for the majority of the round. The duo kept it close, and once his teammates picked it up they were able to force an 11th game. They ended up losing it, though. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a middling round for him, as he went 14/14 in the 2-1 loss. It was a slow, defensive round, and Scump could not break through the Luminosity defense. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him put it together late; the beginning of the round was a struggle for him, but he and the rest of his team put it together down the stretch to force a Round 5 Search & Destroy. Scump struggled to find his footing in that fifth round, and fell to Luminosity in 11 games.
Consistent performer in win
July 18, 2018
Scump was the most consistent member of OpTic Gaming in the 3-1 win over Rise Nation on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump was a solid and reliable performer in this one, and it started right away. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him run out in the early stages to lead OpTic Gaming. He fluctuated a bit in the round with a down portion towards the middle, but finished off strong to be a part of a three-man attack with Methodz and Octane that helped win them the round. Scump was really good in Round 2 Search & Destroy as well, especially in the latter stages of the round, but Rise Nation were able to outplay OpTic Gaming despite his strong play, and OpTic suffered their only loss of the round. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a complete blowout, as OpTic ran out to a 4-0 lead and held it through the second half to win the round. Scump was solid but unassuming in the win, going just 20/20 in the round. Interestingly enough, the easiest win in the round was probably his worst round individually; he was far from bad, he was just laid back while his teammates really took control. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him take a more central role again. He and Crimsix led them while Methodz and Octane really struggled to do much of anything. Scump kept his pace going as Methodz and Octane picked it up, as OpTic Gaming took the lead and ran with it.
Focuses on objectives
July 13, 2018
Scump focused on the objectives rather than slaying in the reverse-sweep win over eUnited on Day 3, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump was never in the spotlight in this round, as his contributions largely came on the objective rather than in the slaying department, especially in the respawn rounds. His best slaying performance by far came in Round 1 Hardpoint, where he went 32/33 with 55 seconds on the objective. He was not able to stop eUnited from coming out of nowhere to win the round late, however. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him be the only player on OpTic Gaming to have less than 20 kills in the round, and was the only one to have a sub-1.00 KD (18/20), though he did provide a flag cap in the round. Round 4 Hardpoint was similar, as he had the only negative KD of any OpTic player (21/23), though he had 1:39 on the objective, second on the team. He was a solid support player in each of the two Search & Destroy rounds, as well. Overall, his teammates were doing so much of the slaying that he seemingly focused his attention elsewhere for the good of the team.
Strong beginning and end to win
July 12, 2018
Scump started and finished this match strong, but saw some struggles in between, as OpTic Gaming outlasted compLexity Gaming 3-2 on Day 2, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump had an incredible start to this match. OpTic Gaming ran through compLexity Gaming in Round 1 Hardpoint, getting out to a 200-90 before getting out to a 1-0 lead. He led the lobby in kills with 31, and his strong slaying performance was a big reason why compLexity's offense had trouble getting into the Hardpoint. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him have some struggles; he provided some solid slaying in both rounds, but had a hard time doing it on a consistent basis in the back-to-back round losses. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him find his rhythm again, as he notched 30 kills in the round win. He had a bit of a slow start, but he found his first round form about halfway through the round, which allowed OpTic Gaming to run away with it in the second half of the round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him put together an excellent showing, and solid support from his teammates behind him saw OpTic Gaming pull out a 6-4 win.
Excellent end to loss
June 17, 2018
Scump was great in the final portion of the 3-2 loss to UNILAD Esports on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim; the loss saw OpTic Gaming get eliminated from the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint saw Scump come alive as the round went on. Both teams were tight, getting to the 100 point mark at nearly the same time. OpTic ended up pulling away in the latter stages, and Scump was a big part of that. He ended up going 32/34, with 1:18 on the objective in the round. He did not have good showings in either Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag - he struggled as UNILAD handled OpTic gaming with relative ease, with OpTic losing 6-3 in the former and 4-0 in the latter. Round 4 Hardpoint looked like it was going to be an easy UNILAD win, as they led 190-100, but OpTic came roaring back to win it and force a fifth round. Scump was good even when they were losing - he was their rock early on, and was a big reason why they were able to make that comeback. He went 32/27 with 1:07 on the objective in the round. Scump was excellent in Round 5 Search & Destroy - he had a 7/2 KD by the third game and was simply rolling against UNILAD. It, however, was not enough to overcome UNILAD, as they lost in eleven games.
Struggles to stay consistent
June 17, 2018
Scump lagged behind his teammates in a 3-1 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Saturday at CWL Anaheim, falling to the Loser's Bracket.
ANALYSIS
Despite a solid start, Scump quickly fell behind his teammates as Luminosity Gaming turned up their game. This was largely because Luminosity Gaming played a slow, defensive game to counter Scump's fast pace. Due to the slow game, Scump was often forced to contend with both John and Slacked as he struggled to find holes in his opponent's defense, allowing Luminosity to easily encircle him. Scump also fell flat with his KD, struggling to land kills against a hot Luminosity Gaming even in maps like Round 4 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, a favorite of Scump.
Easily rushes down his enemy
June 16, 2018
Scump pressured his opponent in a swift 3-0 win against Team EnVyUs on Friday at CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Team EnVyUs was a limp opponent for OpTic Gaming. Scump, the world-class SMG player of OpTic Gaming, essentially had full reign of the map, allowing him to easily push his opponents' spawns. This was best seen in Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar where he breezed through Team EnVyUs' defenses by scattering their spawns. Thanks to Crimsix and Methodz landing consistent kills, Scump could predict spawns and push lanes accordingly. For example, the rotations from Turret to Pit Center saw Scump playing off-lanes to force poor spawns onto Team EnVyUs. This allowed OpTic Gaming to get a nearly flawless second Pit Center and Castle Road.
Never finds his footing in loss
June 8, 2018
Scump never got it together in the sweep loss to Rise Nation on Day 3, Week 4, of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump, much like OpTic Gaming, never really found his footing in this loss. OpTic were ambushed from the onset of the match, as they quickly fell behind in Round 1 Hardpoint, going on to lose 250-74. They would lose Round 2 Search & Destroy 6-1, and Round 3 Capture the Flag 5-2. Scump was never able to do much of anything in this match, struggling in Round 2 Search & Destroy and netting just 17 kills in each of the Hardpoint losses.
Overcame slow start in loss
June 7, 2018
Scump started slow and finished strong in the 3-1 loss to eUnited on Day 2, Week 4, CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump really struggled in the early going of this match, going just 14/27 in Round 1 Hardpoint. eUnited came out hot, slaying everything in their path, and Scump could do nothing about it. He simply could not find his footing. He did, however, put it together after this round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him go 6/2 through the first five games, as they went up 3-2 over eUnited. They would, however, lose four in a row to lose 6-3. Scump continued his strong play in Round 3 Capture the Flag, their only round win of the match. He and his teammates slayed at will, and totally took every eUnited member out of the round, save for Clayster, who kept them afloat. His 22 kills were tied for second in the lobby, and he had two of his team's four flag caps. Round 4 Hardpoint saw he and the rest of OpTic Gaming sleepwalk through most of the round, as they found themselves down 223-52. They turned it on late, however, and ended incredibly strong, scoring 101 points before losing 250-153. He put together 35 kills, and was a big reason why they came storming back to make the final round competitive.
Lags behind OpTic's new additions against compLexity
June 6, 2018
OpTic Gaming's 3-0 victory against compLexity was apparently not Scump's time to shine, as Methodz and Octane outperformed him on Tuesday of Week 4 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump didn't have his best of games against compLexity, but thankfully he didn't have to, as new additions to the OpTic Gaming roster Methodz and Octane were more than willing to carry. Case in point was Round 1 Hardpoint, where Scump went negative in KD with 24/31 and only 43 seconds of Hardpoint control time, the least of his team, while Methodz and Octane both outperformed him that round. Scump did much better in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he was back to his old slaying self with a double-positive KD of 6/3, but again, Octane did better (although Methodz tanked that round). Scump brought some nails to put in compLexity's coffin in Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he scored a flag capture and a break-even KD of 31/31, nails that his new teammates were more than eager to hammer in.
Strong respawn rounds in win
June 6, 2018
Scump had strong respawn rounds in the 3-1 win over Mindfreak on Day 1, Week 4, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was Scump's only poor round in this one. Only Crimsix performed well in the round, as Mindfreak won the round with relative ease. Scump and OpTic were constantly chasing Mindfreak for the entire round. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him get off to a hot start, netting a lobby-leading 33 kills. He was the slayer of the team, as he only had 24 seconds of Hardpoint time, but his teammates filled the objective as he ran amok on the map. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a rather easy 5-1 win, a round they won after a close first half lead. He led the lobby again, this time with 26 kills, as they put together a perfect second half. Round 4 Hardpoint was another easy win, this time 250-68, and Scump slayed well yet again. He had 23 kills and a solid 57 seconds, proving to be a key part in the easy win.
Solid support in win
June 1, 2018
Scump played a key support role in the sweep win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 3, Week 3, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
The first two rounds of this match were more support than anything for Scump. He was a valuable member of the team, for sure, but he did his best work filling in behind his teammates and keeping the OpTic Gaming train rolling. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him go 18/20, but he had a huge second half to lead them to a win. He had a huge clutch play to get their first flag cap, with 2:30 left in the game. He killed all four members of Luminosity, leaving the map wide open for his teammates. He continued to play well right until the end of the round.
Wrestles the enemy over objectives
May 30, 2018
Scump pressured and whittled down Tainted Minds in a 3-0 sweep on Wednesday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Despite a new patch launching, King Scump is still here to stay. Playing a purposefully slower game in order to work around the new patch the new OpTic Gaming took total map control away from Tainted Minds by focusing on spawn manipulation. Scump, however, continued playing rather aggressively alongside Crimsix to wrestle objective control from their opponents. This tactic hit some bump in Round 1 Hardpoint where Scump was slow to slay. But by Round 3 Capture the Flag, Scump was beaming and scored his team an extraordinary three flag captures.
