Excellent end to loss
June 17, 2018
Scump was great in the final portion of the 3-2 loss to UNILAD Esports on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim; the loss saw OpTic Gaming get eliminated from the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint saw Scump come alive as the round went on. Both teams were tight, getting to the 100 point mark at nearly the same time. OpTic ended up pulling away in the latter stages, and Scump was a big part of that. He ended up going 32/34, with 1:18 on the objective in the round. He did not have good rounds in either Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag - he struggled as UNILAD handled OpTic gaming with relative ease, with OpTic losing 6-3 in the former and 4-0 in the latter. Round 4 Hardpoint looked like it was going to be an easy UNILAD win, as they led 190-100, but OpTic came roaring back to win it and force a fifth round. Scump was good even when they were losing - he was their rock early on, and was a big reason why they were able to make that comeback. He went 32/27 with 1:07 on the objective in the round. Scump was excellent in Round 5 Search & Destroy - he had a 7/2 KD by the third game, and was simply rolling against UNILAD. It, however, was not enough to overcome UNILAD, as they lost in eleven games.
More good than bad in loss

Octane had a rather good showing in the 3-2 loss to UNILAD Esports on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim; the loss eliminated OpTic Gaming from the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Octane finished Round 1 Hardpoint with a solid 28/26 and 1:20 on the objective, but a lot of that came late in the round. He struggled early on as UNILAD were palying well, but really picked it up as the round got going. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw OpTic never really get into it, but Octane played very well. He was a big reason why they got three wins in the 6-3 loss in the first place. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw UNILAD play incredible defense, as OpTic could not break through them in the 4-0 loss. Octane struggled in this one, going 17/18. Round 4 Hardpoint housed quite the comeback for OpTic Gaming, as they came back from 139-64 and 190-100 deficits to win. Octane had a very strong late game after struggling early on, finishing 25/22 in the round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw Octane fall into a support role, as they lost in game eleven to get eliminated from CWL Anaheim.
Hot start in loss

Methodz had a hot start in the 3-2 loss to UNILAD Esports on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, as OpTic Gaming was eliminated from the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Methodz was excellent in their Round 1 Hardpoint win, going36/24 in 1:53 on the objective in the round - he was easily their most consistent performer in the opening round and it shows in his stat line. He was their leader in the early going, and kept it close so when his teammates heated up they were able to get the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag were two very similar rounds for both Methodz and OpTic Gaming - Methodz was outslayed in each, and they lost both by a decent margin (6-3 in Search & Destroy, and 4-0 in Capture the Flag). He turned it back around in Round 4 Hardpoint going 28/21 with 1:35 on the objective, as they made a huge comeback after being down 190-100. He was key to that, putting in a strong showing late in the round. He and Scump were the leaders of the comeback. He was the second fiddle in Round 5 Search & Destroy, a round they lost in a decisive game eleven.
Riddled in inconsistencies
June 17, 2018
Crimsix had trouble finding stable ground in the 3-2 loss to UNILAD Esports on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, as OpTic Gaming was eliminated from the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Crimsix struggled to slay in the first two rounds of this match. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 32/39 in the 250-203 win, though he did have 1:00 on the objective. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him go kill-less through the first six games, before finally getting on the board in game seven, in a 6-3 loss. He simply struggled to slay in these two rounds - even when OpTic was playing well, he had a hard time finding his footing in the slaying department. He pvercame that in a big way in Round 3 Capture the Flag, a round they lost 4-0. He led constant pushes, but UNILAD kept pushing them back. He finished with a strong 23/15 KD in the loss. He struggled in the early going of Round 4 Hardpoint, though he turned it on late as they staged a very impressive comeback, overcoming a 190-100 deficit to win the round. His 22/24 KD does not look impressive on his own, but he did plenty of good things during their comeback. He had 1:26 on the objective, as well, in the win. He slid into a support role in Round 5 Search & Destroy, a round they would go on to lose in an eleventh game.
Versatile in win
June 17, 2018
Zed switched between a leader and a support player in the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, keeping UNILAD Esports in the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
Zed had a solid Round 1 Hardpoint, though he died quite a bit against the strong OpTic Gaming performance. He went 33/33 in the round with 1:26 on the objective. It was a pretty close round, as they lost 250-203, and were right in it until the very end. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a rather easy win for UNILAD, and Zed and wuskin did the heavy lifting for UNILAD. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw wuskin and Zed lead the pack yet again, as they led a staunch defense and a solid offense to a 4-0 lead. They pushed back quite a few pushes from OpTic and kept their record clean. Round 4 Hardpoint saw UNILAD blow 139-64 and 190-100 leads to end up losing. Zed got them a late lead with some big kills, but OpTic came right back to erase that. Round 5 Search & Destroy was a tense eleven game win, but Zed struggled a decent amount. He had the final kill in the first game, but played support to Seany and Alexx.
Solid performance in win
June 17, 2018
wuskin played very well in the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, keeping UNILAD Esports alive in the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
wuskin did a lot of good in this match, and that start in Round 1 Hardpoint. OpTic won the round 250-203, but wuskin put together a strong performance in the losing effort. He was one of their leaders as they hit the 100 point mark, helping keep pace with a solid game from OpTic. While he ended up fading a bit, he still went 28/26 with 1:07 on the objective in the loss. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him lead his team again, although this time they pulled out a 6-3 win. Round 3 Capture the Flag was the most lopsided round of the match, as UNILAD coasted to a 4-0 win. They fought back quite a few aggressive pushes by OpTic Gaming, but they handled each and every one of them. wuskin was excellent in this one, netting 20 kills, helping keep their lead intact. He did, however, falter in the final two rounds, limping in both Round 4 Hardpoint (a loss) and Round 5 Search & Destroy (a win).
Lots of solid play in win
June 17, 2018
Seany had a lot of good to take away from the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, keeping UNILAD Esports alive in the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
Seany had a nice start to Round 1 Hardpoint, helping keep them close with OpTic Gaming. He ended up fading as the round went on - he ended up going 30/34 with 1:23 on the objective, with the brunt of his good play coming early. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him provide support behind strong games from Zed and wuskin in the 6-3 win. Seany did the same in Round 4 Hardpoint, providing support behind strong games from Zed and wuskin. They won rather comfortably, 4-0, and did an excellent job of pushing back some strong, streak-filled pushes by OpTic. He did not have the best Round 4 Hardpoint, playing support behind ALexx while UNILAD took a 190-100 lead. They eventually blew that lead, and lost the round to go to a fifth round. Round 5 Search & Destroy was the Seany and Alexx show - the two of them dominated, and were the biggest reasons why they were able to get through OpTic Gaming to win game eleven. Seany got the final kill in that game to win it.
Excellent final two rounds in close win
June 17, 2018
Alexx shined brightly in the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, keeping UNILAD Esports alive in the tournament.
ANALYSIS
Alexx had a rather slow start to this one, but his last two rounds more than made up for it. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him slide into a support role behind strong games from wuskin and Seany - especially in the early portion of the round. The all ended up fading a bit as OpTic Gaming went off to secure a 250-203 win. He went 32/35 in the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag were very similar rounds for Alexx and UNILAD - they won both rounds rather easily (6-3 in Round 2 Search & Destroy and 4-0 Capture the Flag), and Alexx was a solid support player behind wuskin and Zed in both rounds. Round 4 Hardpoint was where Alexx broke out. He was a monster, and basically single-handedly led them to a 190-100 lead. They would blow that lead, but Alexx was stellar in the loss. He went 33/27 in the round, with a minute on the objective. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him and Seany dominate, and lead UNILAD to a eleven game win and an upset victory. Alexx hit double digit kills in the final round.
Solid first and last round
June 17, 2018
Slacked had a nice start and finish to the 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim; the loss relegated Luminosity Gaming to the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
Slacked and FormaL were the entire offense for Luminosity for large stretches of Round 1 Hardpoint, as John and JKap struggled to find their footing. Eventually John started to play better and that trio willed them to a 20-248 win. Slacked was huge in that win, as he got into the Hardpoint and clearing it out and winning them the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him come back down to Earth as Red Reserve dominated, winning 6-2. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Slacked struggle a little, going 17/19. Red Reserve really dominated the map due to their strong slaying, and Slacked really could not do anything about it. Round 4 Hardpoint saw he, FormaL and John dominate early, as Luminosity were staked out to a 153-107 lead. They would eventually lose the lead, the round, and the match, as strong late-game showings from Red Reserve upended a nice early round performance from Slacked.
Solid after slow start
June 17, 2018
John picked it up after a slow start in the 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, as Luminosity Gaming fell into the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
John really got off to a slow start in Round 1 Hardpoint, but his late-round resurgence was key to winning the round. He joined FormaL and Slacked, and that trio helped turn the round into an intense back and forth, eventually won by Luminosity 250-248. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a painless win for Red Reserve, as Luminosity only mustered two wins in the 6-2 loss. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw John play rather well, going 20/18, but Luminosity as a whole was pretty overwhelmed by Red Reserve's offense, and could not penetrate their defense. Round 4 Hardpoint saw he, Slacked and FormaL dominate the early stages, both in terms of the score and the kill feed. The score would not last, though, as an impressive late-game performance by Red Reserve knocked Luminosity down into the loser's bracket.
Figures it out late
June 17, 2018
JKap had a hard time for most of the 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, putting Luminosity Gaming into the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
JKap really struggled to get it going in this match, even in the round they won - Round 1 Hardpoint. He struggled to do much of anything in that opening round, going 17/32 with 45 seconds on the objective, despite the 250-248 win. HE struggledin Round 2 Search & Destroy, as they only managed to take two games in the round. Round 3 Capture the Flag was, again, an awful round for JKap. He went just 9/23 in the round, which shows how outgunned he was. Round 4 Hardpoint was easily his best round. He was productive in a support role while they were winning, and ended up slaying well going 31/30 in the round. Overall, it was a rough match for JKap.
Hot start is inconsequential
June 17, 2018
FormaL came out on fire in the 3-1 loss to Red Reserve on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, as Luminosity Gaming were relegated into the loser's bracket.
ANALYSIS
FormaL had an incredible start to this match, putting in an excellent performance in their sole round win - Round 1 Hardpoint. He notched 38 kills in the round, leading the lobby, and added a strong 1:39 of Hardpoint time to his team's efforts. They needed every second of Hardpoint time in the 250-248 win, and FormaL's strong two-way performance was a big catalyst in the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy was a 6-2 loss, and FormaL was the only solid player for Luminosity in the round. They really could not do much of anything in that round, as a whole, despite FormaL's solid play. He continued his solid play in Round 3 Capture the Flag, but Red Reserve were firing on all cylinders, and their depth was far better than the depth of Luminosity - Luminosity just could not get their offense going in a consistent manner. Round 4 Hardpoint saw he, Slacked and John lead them to a 153-107 lead, but they could not hold it, as impressive late pushes by Red Reserve dropped them to the loser's bracket.
Saved best for last in win
June 17, 2018
Zer0 had his best round in the final round of the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, securing Red Reserve a spot in the Winner's Bracket Final.
ANALYSIS
Zer0 had a hot start to Round 1 Hardpoint, but he faded a bit as Luminosity turned it on. The round went back and forth, and they lost 250-248. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Zer0 continue to struggle to find his footing, as his final kill in game eight (the game-winning final kill) was the only thing of note he did in the round. He had two strong rounds in Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint, however, to finish the match strong. He was dominant for the entire CTF round, leading them in the first half and keeping their lead stable in the second half. He went 21/14 in the round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him go 36/34, really putting his team on his back late in the round, as they secured the win.
Excellent in win
June 17, 2018
Skrapz played very well in the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, securing them a spot in the Winner's Bracket Final.
ANALYSIS
Skrapz was consistently solid in this match, even in the 250-248 Round 1 Hardpoint loss. He helped keep the team stable in the round, as his teammates went through their ups and downs. He went 28/25 with 1:30 on the objective in the losing effort. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him dominate with his sniper, constantly being a thorn in Luminosity's side. They had no answer for him, and for the majority of the round he was the main difference between the two teams. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a nice win by them, as they dominated the kill feed and stifled the Luminosity offense. Skrapz was consistent, pacing them in kills (23) and playing a solid defensive game - he added a flag cap to his stat line, as well. Round 4 Hardpoint housed an impressive comeback from Red Reserve, and Skrapz was at the heart of it. He, Zer0, and Rated had big kills to get them to that coveted 250 mark.
Consistent force in nice win
June 17, 2018
Rated was a consistent performer in the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of CWL Anaheim, securing Red Reserve a spot in the Winner's Bracket Final.
ANALYSIS
Red Reserve's only loss came in Round 1 Hardpoint, but Rated had a good performance in that round. They lost the round in heartbreaking fashion, falling 250-248, and Rated's performance was a big reason why they got to 248 in the first place. He was sold throughout the back and forth round, going 31/25 with 1:09 on the objective. He led his team in kills, providing a solid base throughout the round. Rated had a really good late-game performance, really turning it on in the final few games. His biggest contribution came in game seven, where he netted three kills to get them within one game of a win - a win they would eventually get. Rated had a slow first half to Round 3 Capture the Flag, but he picked it up in the second half of the round to put together a great performance overall. Red Reserve followed a similar path - the first half was slow, but they had a great second half, dominating the kill feed and giving them map control. Rated had a poor stat line in Round 4 Hardpoint (26/35) but he turned it on in the latter stages of the round. He, Skrapz and Zer0 all had huge kills that got them to the 250 mark.
