Important piece of the puzzle
August 16, 2018
Crimsix came up large in each round of the sweep win of Supremacy on Day 2 of the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championships.
Crimsix was a key part of all three rounds, but he was so in different ways. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him be more of an unsung hero, as his best moments came in the tough early portion of the round when Supremacy shocked OpTic to run out to an early lead. He and Octane helped keep them afloat while Supremacy looked great, and allowed their teammates to find their footing without getting blown out. Eventually his teammates picked it up and ran away with the round, but they may have not gotten that chance without Crimsix. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him take a much more central role, as he and Methodz were a dominant duo, as they paced OpTic to a 5-0 lead and an eventual 6-1 win. Round 3 Capture the Flag was more balanced, as all four members of OpTic were excellent, and they really just stifled Supremacy at every turn of the 3-0 win.
Never found his footing in bad loss
July 28, 2018
Crimsix struggled to do much of anything in the 3-0 loss to UNILAD Esports that saw them get eliminated from the tournament on Day 2 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
Crimsix had a tough time in this one. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go just 22/31, as he and the rest of OpTic Gaming blew a 160-100 lead because they were wildly outslayed. That was a constant theme of this loss - Round 2 Search & Destroy saw them struggle to slay yet again, as they lost in 10 games. Round 3 Capture the Flag was the worst of the three rounds as no one topped the 20-kill mark and they were shutout. Crimsix limped to a 16/22 KD, as OpTic were swept out of the tournament.
Mostly good in loss
July 20, 2018
Crimsix played well, but he could not will OpTic Gaming to get over the hump in the 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Round 1 Hardpoint saw Crimsix play well early on, helping get OpTic Gaming out to a quick lead. He ended up having an okay-at-best 18/18 KD, but had a strong 1:30 on the objective, which was the crux of his productivity. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Crimsix carry them early on, and lead OpTic Gaming to an 11th game down the stretch, as his teammates picked it up. Round 3 Capture the Flag, and most of Round 4 Hardpoint, contained his worst stretch. He struggled to a 14/16 KD in their Round 3 Capture the Flag loss, never able to find his footing in the defensive round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Methodz carry them in the early going. Crimsix picked it up late, and had an incredible run to complete the comeback and force a fifth round. He played well in that fifth round, but they were up-ended in an 11th game yet again.
Blows up after slow start
July 18, 2018
Crimsix did not start this match well, but he ended it exceptionally well as OpTic Gaming beat Rise Nation 3-1 on Day 1, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Crimsix had a rough first two rounds to this win. Round 1 Hardpoint was a close win for OpTic Gaming, but Crimsix was rather inconsistent. He had a solid 1:11 on the objective, but he went just 20/31; he never found his footing in terms of slaying, but his teammates picked him up. He continued to be an inconsistent-at-best slayer in Round 2 Search & Destroy, though this round did not go in OpTic Gaming's favor. He picked it up in Round 3 Capture the Flag; the round was an utter blowout, as they took a 4-0 lead in the first half and sat on it in an easy second half. He went 18/14 with two of his team's flag caps; he was a very solid and reliable slayer, and did a great job providing staunch defense and strong offense. Round 4 Hardpoint was, far and away, his best round. He went a whopping 40/31 and had 2:00 on the objective. He was excellent in the early stages when Rise Nation were leading, and excellent down the stretch as OpTic Gaming came back to take the lead and finish off the win. His stability was key, and without it, a round five was very possible.
Four excellent rounds in reverse-sweep win
July 13, 2018
Crimsix was by and large great in the reverse sweep win over eUnited on Day 3, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Crimsix had just one subpar round in the reverse-sweep win, and that came in Round 4 Hardpoint. They won the round rather convincingly (250-115), and Methodz and Octane did the heavy lifting for OpTic in the round. Crimsix was kind of off in the round, going 22/27 with just 22 seconds on the objective. Outside of that round, however, he was spectacular. Round 1 Hardpoint set the tone for the rest of his performance, as he notched 38 kills in the round. He was their main slayer, and a big reason why they ran out to an early lead. They held their lead late into the round, when clutch plays from Arcitys and Prestinni foiled OpTic Gaming. He continued his excellent slaying, as he joint-led the lobby in kills with 21 in Round 3 Capture the Flag. He also managed to get three flag caps in the blowout win that got them on the board. He also did a lot of the heavy lifting in both Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy a loss and a win respectively; Crimsix was particularly excellent in the second round, but he had little support after Methodz faded following his hot start. Overall, Crimsix was able to take over round after round, and in a few cases, swing the momentum in their favor. Overall, he was their best slayer, and eUnited did not have much of an answer for him in both the wins and losses.
Up and down in win
July 12, 2018
Crimsix had his good and bad rounds in the 3-2 win over compLexity Gaming on Day 2, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
This match was a bit of a mixed bag for Crimsix. There were rounds like Round 2 Search & Destroy, in which he put together an excellent back half of the round to get them to a Game 11. He was also excellent in Round 4 Hardpoint, as he notched a lobby-leading 31 kills in a very balanced round from OpTic Gaming. Everyone on OpTic had over 29 kills, and their overwhelming slaying performance saw them run away with the around from the mid point on. The rest of his performance saw him hang back into a support role; Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 24/24, but had a strong 1:15 on the objective to help keep OpTic out in front and secure a win after their early lead. Round 5 Search & Destroy was the same, in which Crimsix played a key support role to keep OpTic gaming out in front of compLexity Gaming in the 10-game win. Round 3 Capture the Flag was his worst round, as he went just 14/17 in the overtime loss; he was simply outslayed in that round.
Riddled in inconsistencies
June 17, 2018
Crimsix had trouble finding stable ground in the 3-2 loss to UNILAD Esports on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, as OpTic Gaming was eliminated from the tournament.
Crimsix struggled to slay in the first two rounds of this match. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 32/39 in the 250-203 win, though he did have 1:00 on the objective. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him go kill-less through the first six games, before finally getting on the board in Game 7, in a 6-3 loss. He simply struggled to slay in these two rounds - even when OpTic was playing well, he had a hard time finding his footing in the slaying department. He overcame that in a big way in Round 3 Capture the Flag where they lost 4-0. He led constant pushes, but UNILAD kept pushing them back. He finished with a strong 23/15 KD in the loss. He struggled in the early going of Round 4 Hardpoint, though he turned it on late as they staged a very impressive comeback, overcoming a 190-100 deficit to win the round. His 22/24 KD does not look impressive on his own, but he did plenty of good things during their comeback. He had 1:26 on the objective, as well, in the win. He slid into a support role in a Round 5 Search & Destroy that they lost 6-5.
Fails to adapt the team
June 17, 2018
Crimsix struggled to coordinate in a 3-1 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Saturday at CWL Anaheim, falling into the Loser's Bracket in the process.
Though OpTic Gaming had a hot start, Crimsix couldn't coordinate his team against a defensive Luminosity Gaming. Crimsix was able to secure Round 1 Hardpoint by landing a seven killstreak and full Scorestreaks, allowing him to zone out Luminosity Gaming. But in subsequent rounds, Crimsix couldn't set the fast and aggressive pace he needed to thrive. Luminosity Gaming sat back and grouped up to hold flanks and spawns, stalling the game by covering each other. Crimsix attempted to hit the flanks of his opponents, but never as a group and throwing his team into uneven fights.
Scatters his opponents' spawns
June 16, 2018
Crimsix bullied Team EnVyUs at every turn in a 3-0 sweep on Friday at CWL Anaheim.
Crimsix went full "Crimbot" this series. Running his classic flex role, Crimsix was easily able to bully Team EnVyUs' frontlines alongside Scump. In Round 1 Hardpoint Crimsix started the first map hot by using his SMG to push his opponents' spawns. This was accomplished by Crimsix quickly rushing down Team EnVyUs in lanes and landing kills after they came off of spawn. The frequent double kills allowed Crimsix and Scump to stagger the enemy spawns, allowing OpTic Gaming to utterly dominate the map. Crimsix performed similarly even with an AR in Round 2 Search & Destroy. By just pushing into a limp enemy, Crimsix was able to find consistent kills.
Fought valiantly in blowout loss
June 8, 2018
Crimsix had some good moments but OpTic Gaming were outclassed in the sweep loss to Rise Nation on Day 3, Week 4, of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Crimsix was far from bad in Round 1 Hardpoint. He easily led his team in kills with 21, and was a relatively tough out for Rise Nation throughout the round. He had absolutely no help behind him though, and they lost 250-74. He was nonexistent in the 6-1 Round 2 Search & Destroy loss, but led his team in kills again with 18 in Round 3 Capture the Flag. However, it was a similar story, as Rise Nation dominated and OpTic Gaming looked helpless in the 5-2 loss.
Limps to the end of loss
June 7, 2018
Crimsix had a poor final round in the 3-1 loss to eUnited on Day 2, Week 4, of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
Crimsix's worst round was the final round of the match. He went just 18/32 in the round, even struggling as they came roaring back from a 223-52 deficit to lose 250-153. They simply were down by too much, despite the impressive comeback. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 26/26; he never really went on a run, and a lot of that had to do with the strong play from eUnited. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him give his team a chance, as he was 7/2 through the first five games. They were leading 3-2 at the time, but they would go on to lose four in a row to lose 6-3. Round 3 Capture the Flag was their only round win, and Crimsix was a key part of that. He had two flag caps in the 4-2 win, and he went a solid 17-13. He was a consistent, steady player throughout the round, as they dominated the map and flummoxed everyone but Clayster.
Not his usual slaying self in Hardpoint
June 6, 2018
Crimsix still has some kinks to work out in a 3-0 win against compLexity on Tuesday of Week 4 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
Something seems missing from Crimsix's normally all-star-caliber play, or at least it seemed so against compLexity, as newcomers Methodz and Octane stole the limelight from him. In Round 1 Hardpoint, he had a performance which was far below his usual par, resulting in a surprisingly lackluster 23/34 and only 44 seconds of hardpoint control time. Crimsix picked things back up in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he went back into positive KD territory with a triple-positive 7/2, but he was still outscored by Octane that round. Crimsix seemed to be back in form for Round 3 Capture the Flag, where he got a flag capture and a positive KD of 32/27, but this time, Methodz beat him in KD. It's nice to see OpTic working as a team again, but Crimsix still has some rust to shake off.
Consistent force in win
June 6, 2018
Crimsix was very consistent in the 3-1 win over Mindfreak on Day 1, Week 4, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
Crimsix put together a strong performance in this match, even in their sole round loss. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him hover around a 1.00 KD until very late in the round. He popped off five kills in a row as OpTic Gaming put the finishing touches on their round win. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw OpTic as a team struggle, but Crimsix played very well individually. He was 7/2 through four games, and continued to play rather well throughout their 6-3 loss. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him play well on both sides, netting three flag caps and 22 kills in the 5-1 win. His play was key for OpTic, as they ran away with it in the second half. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him play a solid game, going 22/18 with 31 seconds on the objective. It was a very easy win, 250-68, and his steady game helped get them there.
Solid respawn rounds in win
June 1, 2018
Crimsix had his best performances in the respawn rounds of the sweep win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 3, Week 3, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
Crimsix had a pair of nice respawn rounds surrounded by a weak Search & Destroy. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag were pretty similar rounds, as he had a 22/14 KD in the first and a 21/18 KD in the second. He was a very stable support player in each of the rounds, helping round out the depth for OpTic, which was a key reason why they were able to sweep Luminosity. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him struggle, though his teammates picked him up in the eight-game win.
Slow, rock-solid game
May 30, 2018
Crimsix forced a slower, tactical game to sweep Tainted Minds with a 3-0 on Wednesdya of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
A new patch launched on Wednesday making a series of minor changes that upset the meta. In order to counter this, in-game leader Crimsix had OpTic Gaming play a slow game built on fundamentals. This meant that in Round 1 Hardpoint Crimsix would always focus first on controlling spawns before daring to challenge hills. While this allowed Tainted Minds to keep Round 1 Hardpoint close with early hill rotations, Crimsix's slow tactics essentially guaranteed rounds. The slow game was perfected in Round 3 Capture the Flag as Crimsix was able to snowball the game with Scorestreaks by focusing on teamfights instead of sneaking flags out.
