Constantly out-trades
March 11, 2018
Methodz found important kills to obliterate Red Reserve 3-1 to win the CWL Atlanta grand finals.
Methodz biggest contributions came from his insane ability to clutch uneven teamfights, Red Reserve's bread-and-butter. In Round 1 Hardoint on Valkyrie, he stopped Red Reserve dead in their tracks with a triple kill on rotation to Smokestacks. This set of kills staggered the Europeans on an extremely fast map. Then, in Game 4 of Round 2 Search & Destroy, Methodz managed to win 1-vs.-3 by carefully listening for Red Reserve's movements, snapping on players with ease. While Methodz would slow down that round, it was an important win to secure Rise Nation's confidence for the rest of the series. Finally, in Round 4 Hardpoint, Methodz constantly out-traded Red Reserve with a flurry double kills and a 34/27 KD.
Starts the game fast and strong

TJHaLy sets a fast, ferocious pace in a 3-1 domination over Red Reserve in the CWL Atlanta grand finals.
TJHaLy and Methodz continue to be the big stand-out players for Rise Nation, finding impossible wins despite the overwhelming odds. In Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie, TJHaLy set the tone for the series early by dropping a four killstreak in the third Hardpoint, Storage Bunker. While a four killstreak isn't big on its own, TJHaLy's streak utterly changed the pace of the game by breaking Red Reserve's spawn and map control. This was the tone he'd keep for the rest of the series, at least in respawn rounds. TJHaLy could be counted on to just clutch up uneven fights, much like we saw from Team Kaliber at the beginning of the season.
Wins CWL Atlanta with slick play

Loony bodied Red Reserve despite his flu in a 3-1 win in the CWL Atlanta grand finals.
Loony came into this match as sick as a dog, but he emerged as a champion. He was able to slay as well as his teammates and was key to his team's dominant victory as he held lanes. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, Loony tore apart Red Reserve by setting an early pace and holding mid map. In the first fight of the game, Loony scored two kills and got a flag capture, forcing Red Reserve to regroup and lick their wounds. By the second half, Loony was tearing with full Scorestreaks while protecting his teammates.
Absolutely tears in grand finals

Gunless decimated Red Reserve with bombshell gunplay in a 3-1 win in the CWL Atlanta grand finals.
Gunless came into a hot Red Reserve, and he left with the championship title. Gunless tore through Red Reserve, countering their strategies with smarts and pure strength. This is best seen in Round 4 Hardpoint on London Docks where Gunless dropped a massive 50/38 KD and outplayed a rebounding opponent. Gunless' versatility on SMGs allowed him to challenge hills early to gain spawn advantage. By the second set of rotations, he already had full Scorestreaks to put down Red Reserve once they began to retaliate. Not only this, his fast playstyle allowed him to steal spawns from Red Reserve by just blitzing them, such as during the second Barrel Warehouse hill.
Solid last two rounds in win

TJHaLy did not have the best start, but he ended well in the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming, getting Rise Nation into the grand final of CWL Atlanta during Day 3 of the tournament.
TJHaLy had a slow start to the round, as Rise Nation were handled with ease in Round 1 Hardpoint. They saw struggles in their opening Hardpoint round similar to their match against Team EnVyUs earlier in the day -- they could not really slay much at all, and their opponents had nearly full control of the map. TJHaLy struggled to a 15/23 KD in the round. He was good in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but he was not his typical TJHaLy self. Round 3 Capture the Flag is where he woke up. He was all over the place, as his 22 kills led the lobby. He was a rock for them, and his unparalleled slaying power in the round was a big reason why they scored their lone flag cap and kept Luminosity off the board. A lot of his production came in the second half, too, thriving in the defensive style of the round, altering the map with his aggressive style. Speaking of his aggressive style, he managed a 43/47 KD in a wild 250-240 Round 4 Hardpoint win. He was literally everywhere, and involved in what seemed like every encounter. He did a lot of work opening up the map at the sacrifice of himself, and it helped his teammates get Hardpoint time when they needed it.
