Rise Nation
United States
Fails to fix his team's problems
July 30, 2018
Loony faded in the Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Much like TJHaLy, Loony struggled to make his presence felt this series due to Team Kaliber's triple SMG composition. Team Kaliber forced fight after fighter on objectives in order to deny points to Rise Nation, and Loony was unable to break his opponents' spawns or consistently win gunfights. In the first series, Loony worked well with his teammates to slowly force out wins, using his team's superior gun skills to win teamfights in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. However, Loony's lack of map awareness burned Rise Nation on Round 4 Hardpoint where Team Kaliber was able to steal a win 201-196 by running the clock. The second series saw Team Kaliber continue their scrappy playstyle with Loony unable to consistently pin down his opponents from flooding the point.
Slows down in a fast paced series
July 30, 2018
Gunless slowly ran out of steam in the Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Gunless didn't have an answer to Team Kaliber's scrappy playstyle. This was partly because Gunless' flexibility was hampered by his team's inability to switch to a triple SMG composition, forcing Gunless to run an SMG in both series. Even with Gunless stuck on an SMG, he still put out strong numbers across the Grand Finals. The first series fell firmly in Rise Nation's favor as both Gunless and SlasheR decimated Team Kaliber in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. However, a lack of map awareness and flank defense cost Gunless both Round 4 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy. The second series quickly became dire as both Gunless and SlasheR attempted to make "hero plays", taking uneven gunfights or overextending in order to find any kind of opening, putting Rise Nation in poor positions.
Loses his cool in a painfully close series
July 30, 2018
SlasheR grew frustrated in a Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Team Kaliber forced a scrappy and bloody series, sometimes narrowly stealing rounds from SlasheR and Rise Nation. And while SlasheR's slaying stayed even across the series, his leadership slowly withered as he grew frustrated with his teammates and Team Kaliber. The first series saw SlasheR at his finest, dominating Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. Round 3 Capture the Flag, in particular, saw SlasheR obliterated Team Kaliber with an absurd 27/7 KD. Round 4 Hardpoint, however, saw SlasheR begin to slip as Team Kaliber ran the clock out and won the map 201-196. This caused SlasheR to take strange fights in the second series' Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint in order to force an opening. However, his aggression often simply put his team out of position.
Slow to step up
July 30, 2018
TJHaLy turned up late in a double Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
TJHaLy simply failed to turn up in time to help his teammates in this series. Team Kaliber forced long, scrappy fights that put TJHaLy into awkward positions where he struggled to find picks. This wasn't helped by Rise Nation running a triple SMG composition for most of the series, while Rise Nation stuck with two SMGs and two ARs. In the first series, TJHaLy attempted to support SlasheR in long-range battles. However, with Team Kaliber forcing close-range fights in respawn rounds, TJHaLy's shots struggled to find value. The second series didn't see TJHaLy improve as morale slowly grew thin for Rise Nation as Team Kaliber stole round after round.
Steps up for his team
July 30, 2018
TJHaLy tore through Red Reserve in a 3-1 win in the Losers Final at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Despite a debilitating defeat to Team Kaliber in the Winners Final, TJHaLy was able to make a dramatic rebound against Red Reserve. After a slow start, TJHaLy decimated a disorganized Red Reserve in Round 2 Search & Destroy for six straight games to win the round. He did this by simply hiding behind corners in lane to ambush and pick off lone players. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him pop off again, this time in the second half. By using Loony's Scorestreaks as a distraction, TJHaLy was able to play in Red Reserve's face with little punishment.
