Rise Nation
United States
Plays everything and more as CWL Anaheim MVP
June 18, 2018
Gunless devastated Red Reserve in a double Grand Finals victory, losing the first series 3-1 and winning the second series 3-1, to win CWL Anaheim and the title of Rise Nation's MVP.
ANALYSIS
Gunless can simply do it all. From close-range to long-range, fast or slow, there's nothing Gunless can't succeed at in terms of gunfights. Simply put, he was the big reason that Rise Nation was able to be crowned champions of CWL Anaheim. In the first series, Gunless struggled to make much use of his gun skills. This was largely because Red Reserve played for spawns rather than teamfights. However, this meant Red Reserve excelled at Hardpoint and struggled in Search & Destroy, a weakness Gunless took full advantage of. Red Reserve also struggled to keep pace with Gunless' aggression, leading to him dominating the second series with consistent double and triple kills.
Wins a single fight to win Anaheim Championships
June 18, 2018
Loony clutched up in tight situations in a double Grand Finals win to take the title of Champion of CWL Anaheim, losing the first series 3-1 and winning the second series 3-1.
ANALYSIS
Loony was the miracle man for Rise Nation. When Rise Nation needed someone to clutch up, Loony was their man. His big moments came in the first Round 3 Capture the Flag and the second Round 4 Hardpoint where he secured both rounds for his team in tied maps. In the first Round 3 Capture the Flag, Loony was able to defend his team's base from Red Reserve's flankers, preventing sneaky flag captures from happening. He'd also help assist with flag pulls as his spawns in mid-map allowed him to reinforce his teammates. Finally, in the second Round 4 Hardpoint he won the series for his team by clutching a vital 1-vs-1 to secure hill rotations and spawns for his team.
Improves in the second series
June 18, 2018
TJHaLy showed up in the second series of the Grand Finals win at CWL Anaheim, winning the first series 3-1 and the second series 3-1.
ANALYSIS
TJHaLy had some minor problems in the first series as he struggled to play against Red Reserve's spawn control and to slay out. However, he was able to flip this around in the second series. As fatigue set into Red Reserve's line-up, TJHaLy was able to force the Europeans into poor gunfights such as in the second Round 2 Search & Destroy. The young master of Search & Destroy was able to rush down Red Reserve's weak gunplay to pick off players in 1-vs-1's. Despite his successes in Search & Destroy, TJHaLy generally had problems keeping even in respawn rounds.
Shuts down lane battles
June 18, 2018
SlasheR took control of a double Grand Finals to win the title of Champions at CWL Anaheim, winning the first series 3-1 and the second series 3-1.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR may not have excelled in the first series, but he was the only player to remotely match Gunless in raw skill. SlasheR's AR role put a massive amount of pressure on Red Reserve's defenses in the first Round 3 Capture the Flag and in the second series, putting the Europeans on the back foot. One of the problems SlasheR encountered was his struggle to take Red Reserve's spawns as his opponents played a defensive game. This countered SlasheR's raw aggression in the first series, but as he slowed down the game in the second series he and Gunless dominated. SlasheR could secure kills as Gunless rushed into lanes, such as in the second Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint. The tight and aggressive coordination allowed both Gunless and SlasheR to score a slew of double and triple kills. However, SlasheR had trouble using his Scorestreaks effectively, such as in the second Round 1 Hardpoint where his full set of Scorestreaks found little value.
More good than bad in win
June 16, 2018
TJHaLy was excellent after the first round of the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was not particularly positive for Rise Nation as a whole, or for TJHaLy on an individual level. Rise Nation held on for the first half of the match as it was back and forth for a while. Luminosity would run away with it, though, as their slaying advantage finally gave them a big lead. The rest of this match was easily won by Rise Nation, however, and TJHaLy was a big part of that. He was excellent in every game of the 6-0 Round 2 Search & Destroy win - he paced their attack, leading them to a decisive win. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a 2-1 win for them, but they routinely outslayed Luminosity. They went into the second half with a 2-0 lead, and their slaying shut down Luminosity for nearly the entire half. TJHaLy was a solid piece of the puzzle, as his 24 kills made him a key part of the three-headed slaying attack alongside Gunless and SlasheR. Round 4 Hardpoint put the nail in the coffin, as they coasted to a 250-100 win, never really facing much pressure from Luminosity. TJHaLy continued his solid run, netting 23 kills in the easy win.
