Luminosity Gaming
United States
Finally announced with OpTic Gaming
May 7, 2018
Octane will join OpTic Gaming, the organization relayed on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
We knew OpTic Gaming was going to make a change, but we weren't certain who was going to join the illustrious club. While the loss of FormaL and Karma will be difficult, it's possible OpTic Gaming may have acquired the best player in competitive Call of Duty over the last two years in Octane. The slayer should be reprising his role as the main AR threat on OpTic Gaming - a similar one to that which he performed admirably on Luminosity Gaming - and it's difficult to imagine a scenario where he struggles. With potentially Crimsix nearing the end of his career, Octane could very well join Scump as the next star player to carry the organization into the stratosphere, so long as the personalities on the team can coexist.
Solid Hardpoint in loss
April 9, 2018
Slacked had his best rounds in the Hardpoint rounds of the 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming, as Luminosity Gaming fell to the loser's bracket final of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs on Day 3 of the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Slacked had some big moments in each Hardpoint round. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him be one of the catalysts of the win, as he picked up his game in the second half of the round. He got alongside Octane to help complete the Luminosity attack, and his 33 kill/2:01 Hardpoint time combination was unstoppable, and made Luminosity look incredible. Round 4 Hardpoint saw his KD look mediocre (34/40), but he was a big reason why they did not get blown out of the building. While they were down 110-40, and looking like they'd limp out of the winner's bracket, Slacked and John made huge pushes to get them to a 115-108 deficit, and even got them a lead at one point. While it did not last, their big push came largely due to Slacked. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag were rather middling rounds for him. The second round saw him be a support-player at best, as John and JKap did the heavy lifting in the eleven game loss. The third round saw him go 21/20 as their offense was completely inept in a shutout loss.
Great first round in loss
April 9, 2018
Octane had a hot start to the 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming, seeing Luminosity Gaming fall to the loser's bracket final of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs on Day 3 of the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was an excellent round for both Octane and Luminosity. It was their only round win of the match, and Octane was a huge part of it. He led the team in kills with 39, and he had some clutch ones - he was a key figure in some huge holds of the hill, helping keep their stranglehold on the map and keep their lead intact. He was very good in the round, from beginning to end. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him support John and JKap's strong games, but that was not enough to eke out a win in 11 games. He was good in Round 3 Capture the Flag, netting 23 kills, but the team was stifled by OpTic Gaming's defense. They were hardly able to even sniff a point, as their offense was nonexistent. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him struggle to slay with a very strong OpTic Gaming performance, as they lost the match.
Two great rounds in loss
April 9, 2018
John had a couple of great rounds in the 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming, as Luminosity Gaming fell down to the loser's bracket final of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
John had two great performances in this one, even if his final statline does not reflect that in one of them. Round 2 Search & Destroy is the first of the two, with he and JKap both netting double-digit kills in the eleven game loss. They were a dominant tandem, and but despite their strong slaying they were not able to stop OpTic from rattling off three-game wins to win the round. His second best performance came in Round 4 Hardpoint, though his 42/45 KD says otherwise. Despite the exorbitant amount of deaths in the round, John's performance was a big reason why they were not blown out in the round. With Luminosity down 110-40, John and Slacked stepped up to bring them all the way back to a 115-108 deficit and even a slight lead before they gave it back to OpTic. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him put together a support-based performance, going 34/35 with just 29 seconds on the hill. He was far from bad, though he was far from the top of his team. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him fall victim to OpTic Gaming's dominant defense, as he limped to an 18/22 KD, unable to do anything to break the shutout.
Good start in loss
April 9, 2018
JKap had a good start in the 3-1 loss to OpTic Gaming, knocking Luminosity Gaming down to the loser's bracket final of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs on Day 3.
ANALYSIS
A lot of JKap's contributions came early on. His Round 3 Capture the Flag performance was poor - he went 15/22 as Luminosity Gaming's offense was nonthreatening, and his Round 4 Hardpoint performance saw him fluctuate between good and bad, with the final performance landing in the middle of the two, finishing 33/36 - though he did have a strong 1:19 on the objective. While the last two rounds were average at best, his first two rounds were strong. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him quietly provide 1:00 on the objective and a 33/30 KD, helping pitch in to their strong slaying display in the round. His best round, by far, was Round 2 Search & Destroy. He had double digit kills in the round, as did John, as the two willed Luminosity to a competitive effort. Slacked and Octane provided nice support behind them, but JKap and John were incredible, and they do not reach an eleventh game without them, even if they would lose it.
