A team player despite some low scores
February 17, 2018
Even though Jurd didn't have the best of performances against Evil Geniuses, he still proved himself to be worthy of being part of the team as Splyce pushed aside Evil Geniuses 3-0 on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
urd didn't have the best performance in terms of KD during Round 1 Hardpoint, as he was the only member of Splyce to go negative in KD with 23/26. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, he went negative in KD at 2/5, with little bomb interaction (that is, no plants or defuses), despite Splyce easily pulling the rug out from under Evil Geniuses with six straight wins for the round. But Jurd was instrumental and heroic in Round 3 Capture the Flag, where Evil Geniuses threatened to make a comeback, and despite Jurd's again-negative KD with 18/20, he scored a flag capture that pushed the series into overtime, and from there his teammates easily shut down any hope of Evil Geniuses even making a dent in Splyce's return to form.
Dependable performance makes the win look eas
February 17, 2018
Bance demonstrated his dependability to his team as Splyce swept aside Evil Geniuses 3-0 on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Bance may not always be the best player of Splyce, but he holds his own enough to be an integral part of their team. He aptly proved this point in Round 1 Hardpoint, where despite getting the least amount of hardpoint control time with 20 seconds, he dependably slayed into positive numbers with a KD of 28/26, helping put Evil Geniuses into the 100-point club. Next, in Round 2 Search & Destroy, with a 5/3 KD and a bomb plant he helped Splyce completely shut out Evil Geniuses, preventing them from putting any score on the board at all. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a bit of a weak link for Bance with a 15/23 KD, but he certainly performed well enough to edge out Evil Geniuses in overtime, as Splyce pretty much crushed their dreams
Stalks Evil Geniuses like his namesake
February 17, 2018
MadCat clearly was not going to take any more losses, especially to Evil Geniuses, as Splyce destroyed them in a 3-0 victory on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
MadCat slayed and slayed as he methodically picked apart the defense of Evil Geniuses in Round 1 Hardpoint as his KD soared into double-positive territory that round with 29/14. If that total was impressive to you, you'll be speechless to hear MadCat's quintuple-positive KD in Round 2 Search & Destroy, a nuclear-sized 10/2 that made Evil Geniuses look like amateurs. MadCat would score the highest KD of his team yet again in Round 3 Capture the Flag at 30/13, re-establishing himself as a dominant slayer for Splyce, easily shaking off the cobwebs that came from being short a teammate last week.
Becomes Tommey the Terminator once again
February 17, 2018
Tommey demonstrated why casters sometimes call him the Terminator as he and Splyce slaughtered Evil Geniuses to a 3-0 victory on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League Division B.
ANALYSIS
Tommey was as cold and calculated as his nickname during Round 1 Hardpoint, where he took down the members of Evil Geniuses across the map to a cool KD of 24/16 and the most hardpoint control time of his team at 1:55. The venom continued to flow from Splyce in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where Tommey's double-positive KD of 6/3 contributed to a six straight game victory that made fighting Evil Geniuses look easy. Although Tommey faltered somewhat in Round 3 Capture the Flag, going negative in KD with 16/26, he still scored the game winning flag capture in overtime, laying to rest any hopes of a comeback from Evil Geniuses.
Clutches the final victory
February 16, 2018
Slacked struggled until a last, dramatic moment in a 3-0 win against Team EnVyUs on Day 6 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1, Division B.
ANALYSIS
This series was constantly in question as Team EnVyUs brought a hard fight to Slacked. But while the rest of Luminosity Gaming were able to rise to the challenge, Slacked faded into the background with limp KDs. This brought maps dangerously close. Round 3 Capture the Flag was especially dire for Slacked as he entered into the second half with a 1/11 KD. It was only after Slacked made a bold flank onto Huke attempting to pull Luminosity's flag that he made his presence felt. Scoring a double kill and a flag return, his flank allowed Octane to get a flag capture just before Slacked rallied a second capture.
Slowly heats up
February 16, 2018
Octane slowly tore through Team EnVyUs in a 3-0 win on Day 6 of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1, Division B.
ANALYSIS
It took a while for Octane to heat up against Team EnVyUs. His opponent's vicious and scrappy nature made it hard for Octane to find his legs in the early game, such as in the first set of rotations in Round 1 Hardpoint. But when he did find his stride, it was Octane dominating as expected. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Octane score full Scorestreaks by Game 3 thanks to snappy shots, excellent team work, and smart positioning. For example, in Game 3, Octane let JKap scout for him, letting his partner bait out opponents to give Octane a clean target.
Thinks of his teammates
February 16, 2018
JKap played with his team in mind for a 3-0 win over Team EnVyUS on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
JKap is smart enough to know that Luminosity's best strategy is to set Octane up for streaks. And that's exactly what he did. JKap, the notorious team player, would bait and scout for his teammates to hand them easy kills. This was best seen in Game 3 of Round 2 Search & Destroy where JKap baited two players for Octane, giving him two kills to complete his suite of Scorestreaks. This also helped in Round 3 Capture the Flag where he mainly scouted for his team. On top of his scouting, JKap was also able to slay out, such as with a clutch quadruple kill with a Fighter Pilot in Round 1 Hardpoint that won his team the round.
Leads his team clear of pitfalls
February 16, 2018
John guided his team through a close 3-0 win over Team EnVyUs on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League, Division B
ANALYSIS
The mastermind behind Luminosity Gaming continued to snowball his team's win streak in the first half of Division B. Despite the scoreline, this was a hard fought win as Team EnVyUs started nearly every map hot. It was only in the late-game of every map that John found the space he would need to make plays. For example, Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar was an extremely narrow victory. John was only able to swing this round thanks to him and his team's clever positioning on the fourth Castle Road Hardpoint. By taking the top rafters of the Pit Center, John was able to pin down Team EnVyUs in their spawns with superior firepower.
Finds some holes in Luminosity
February 16, 2018
Huke nearly blasted through Luminosity Gaming in a 3-0 loss on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Huke had bright and dark spots this series. He'd come out of the gates out on every map as Team EnVyUs tried to build an insurmountably lead against a late-game and streaky Luminosity. While Huke was excellent at building leads, he couldn't close out maps. Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar saw Huke build his team's lead on the first Castle Road hill by protecting his team from John's flank. But on the third and final Castle Road, Huke couldn't land the shots needed to break Luminosity's defenses. This would happen again in Round 2 Search & Destroy. Huke beamed a triple kill in Game 5 only to fall apart in the final four games.
Disappears in the chaos
February 16, 2018
Temp wavered in a rough 3-0 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 6 of the CWL Pro League, Division B.
ANALYSIS
Temp had to take a step back this series and let Huke take the lead. Though this may have been in part due to the map selection this series, where only one map was heavily SMG-focused. While Temp is a flex player, he works best when he can roam as needed. Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar and Round 2 Sainte Maire Du Mont don't allow for Temp's style of play. As a result, Temp was forced to play on defense. This worked in Round 1, where he could turtle on Hardpoints, it failed in other rounds.
