Cripples team with poor slaying
July 11, 2018
John stumbled in his SMG role in a 3-2 loss to UNILAD eSports on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Despite being considered one of the smartest players in the game, John was unable to backup his plans with the necessary muscle needed. John sat with a negative KD in every round except Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint. While many teams are able to play around flat slaying, such as the infamous Red Reserve, John's role as an SMG player impacted Luminosity Gaming's ability to rebound. With John unable to engage on his opponents reliable left the team unable to gain map control, such as in Round 1 Harpdoint. Luminosity Gaming's playstyle also required heavy slaying as the team focused on controlling nearby spawns and flooding objectives in order to win maps.
Fails to pull ahead with Slacked
July 11, 2018
FormaL tired to lead his teammates in a 3-2 loss to UNILAD eSports on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
FormaL attempted to help Slacked in overpowering a coordinated UNILAD eSports by flexing his full support role. But in the end, FormaL was unable to make the impact needed to defeat UNILAD eSports. In respawn modes, FormaL excelled thanks to his ability to easily flex between roles, such as on Round 3 Capture the Flag on Ardennes Forest, while supporting an aggressive Slacked. However, FormaL struggled in Round 2 and Round 5 Search & Destroy due to the team's inability to organize tactics. FormaL failed to pull of pinches with Slacked, such as in Game 8 of Round 5 Search & Destroy.
Dominates objective-based round
July 11, 2018
JKap succeeded in Round 3 and nowhere else in a 3-2 loss to UNILAD eSports on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
JKap continued to be a titan in Round 3 Capture the Flag, but he struggled to pick up his pace in other game modes. For most of the series, JKap didn't have a sizable presence in teamfights. JKap, instead, mostly hung back and held spawns for his team. His anchor role would see considerable impact in Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint. In Round 4 Hardpoint, he secured nearby spawns for the third Docks Warehouse Hardpoint, allowing his team to flood the hill with SMGs and steal a map win.
Pulls team ahead in tight loss
July 11, 2018
Slacked led his team in slaying in a 3-2 loss to UNILAD eSports on Tuesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Slacked's slaying presence couldn't be discounted this series. This was especially true as most of Luminosity Gaming had a flat game, meaning Slacked had to carry his team by slaying his opponents out. While this worked in Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint, the lack of support in Round 1 Hardpoint caused Slacked's heavy slaying to have little impact. For example, Round 4 Hardpoint saw Slacked score several double kills to win the map, but he was only able to score those kills because of the spawns JKap secured.
Falls slightly short
June 18, 2018
Slacked played a slow series in a 3-1 loss to Red Reserve in the Losers Final of CWL Anaheim, landing in third place for the weekend.
ANALYSIS
While a solid support player, Slacked wasn't able to land the picks needed to win the series. Both John and FormaL were able to slay out but Slacked wasn't able to help his team win map or spawn control. This was because Slacked stuck close to John, mainly to secure his kills, resulting in Luminosity Gaming playing in clumped groups that Red Reserve could maneuver around. Slacked's slow shots didn't help either, as he was only able to pick up the pace in Round 2 Search & Destroy and at the end of Round 4 Hardpoint.
