Lands the title of MVP in Grand Finals win
July 30, 2018
Kenny is awarded the title of MVP in a Grand Finals win against Rise Nation, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Kenny's signature scrappy playstyle has once again won Team Kaliber a Championship title. While not popping off like he did at CWL Atlanta or CWL New Orleans, his aggression was able to throw Rise Nation off-guard and slowly whittle down their momentum. This was best seen in Hardpoint rounds where Kenny could turn teamfights into drawn out and bloody brawls. In the second Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint, for example, Kenny constantly challenged hills to burn down the clock and deny Rise Nation points. This was best seen in the second Round 1 Hardpoint where Kenny was able to steal the map from Rise Nation by running the clock to win by a narrow 201-196 margin.
Gives an uneven, but strong, performance
July 30, 2018
Enable went "Dad Mode" in an uneven Grand Finals victory over Rise Nation, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Enable both carried and sacked his team in tight Grand Finals against Rise Nation. The first series saw Enable struggled greatly to score an even KD, instead dropping into the double negatives in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. His most notable performance that series would be in Round 5 Search & Destroy where he scored only one kill in an eleven game round. With a round that tight, Enable needed to step up beyond a single kill to help his teammates. However, he rebounded from his lackluster game in the second series. Enable scored his suite of Scorestreaks early into Round 3 Capture the Flag and was able to save his utility until the end of the round when he was able to lockdown Rise Nation.
Holds his team's fast gameplay together
July 30, 2018
Accuracy pinned down Rise Nation in a double Grand Finals win, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Both Kenny and Ferocitys threw themselves at objectives in an attempt to deny points and create a scrappy game. This forced Accuracy to protect his team's spawns while still playing aggressively in order to score favorable spawn points. Accuracy was successful in his endeavors in the second Round 3 Capture the Flag and the first Round 4 Hardpoint. In Round 3 Capture the Flag, Accuracy's impeccable defense allowed Enable to hold off on his Scorestreaks until the final moments of the map. In Round 4 Hardpoint, Accuracy's spawn manipulation allowed Team Kaliber to run the clock down in Team Kaliber's favor for a close 201-196 win.
Wears down his opponents
July 30, 2018
Ferocitys rushed down Rise Nation in the team's Grand Final win, losing the first series 3-2 and winning the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Ferocitys was easily the biggest question mark in Team Kaliber's roster swap at the beginning of Stage 2. However, Ferocitys has slotted in with Team Kaliber's scrappy playstyle incredibly well since joining the team. Playing the role of SMG alongside Kenny, both Ferocitys and Kenny were able to harass Rise Nation by constantly pressuring objectives and flanks. In the first Round 2 Search & Destroy, Ferocitys made it difficult for Rise Nation to rotate through lanes without getting peppered with bullets and disrupting their formations. Ferocitys's best rounds were easily the first Round 4 Hardpoint and the second Round 4 Hardpoint where his unrelenting offense continually denied points for Rise Nation and slowly sanded his opponent's defense.
Fails to fix his team's problems
July 30, 2018
Loony faded in the Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Much like TJHaLy, Loony struggled to make his presence felt this series due to Team Kaliber's triple SMG composition. Team Kaliber forced fight after fighter on objectives in order to deny points to Rise Nation, and Loony was unable to break his opponents' spawns or consistently win gunfights. In the first series, Loony worked well with his teammates to slowly force out wins, using his team's superior gun skills to win teamfights in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. However, Loony's lack of map awareness burned Rise Nation on Round 4 Hardpoint where Team Kaliber was able to steal a win 201-196 by running the clock. The second series saw Team Kaliber continue their scrappy playstyle with Loony unable to consistently pin down his opponents from flooding the point.
Slows down in a fast paced series
July 30, 2018
Gunless slowly ran out of steam in the Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Gunless didn't have an answer to Team Kaliber's scrappy playstyle. This was partly because Gunless' flexibility was hampered by his team's inability to switch to a triple SMG composition, forcing Gunless to run an SMG in both series. Even with Gunless stuck on an SMG, he still put out strong numbers across the Grand Finals. The first series fell firmly in Rise Nation's favor as both Gunless and SlasheR decimated Team Kaliber in Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. However, a lack of map awareness and flank defense cost Gunless both Round 4 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy. The second series quickly became dire as both Gunless and SlasheR attempted to make "hero plays", taking uneven gunfights or overextending in order to find any kind of opening, putting Rise Nation in poor positions.
Loses his cool in a painfully close series
July 30, 2018
SlasheR grew frustrated in a Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Team Kaliber forced a scrappy and bloody series, sometimes narrowly stealing rounds from SlasheR and Rise Nation. And while SlasheR's slaying stayed even across the series, his leadership slowly withered as he grew frustrated with his teammates and Team Kaliber. The first series saw SlasheR at his finest, dominating Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 3 Capture the Flag. Round 3 Capture the Flag, in particular, saw SlasheR obliterated Team Kaliber with an absurd 27/7 KD. Round 4 Hardpoint, however, saw SlasheR begin to slip as Team Kaliber ran the clock out and won the map 201-196. This caused SlasheR to take strange fights in the second series' Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 3 Capture the Flag and Round 4 Hardpoint in order to force an opening. However, his aggression often simply put his team out of position.
Slow to step up
July 30, 2018
TJHaLy turned up late in a double Grand Finals loss to Team Kaliber, winning the first series 3-2 and losing the second series 3-1, at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
TJHaLy simply failed to turn up in time to help his teammates in this series. Team Kaliber forced long, scrappy fights that put TJHaLy into awkward positions where he struggled to find picks. This wasn't helped by Rise Nation running a triple SMG composition for most of the series, while Rise Nation stuck with two SMGs and two ARs. In the first series, TJHaLy attempted to support SlasheR in long-range battles. However, with Team Kaliber forcing close-range fights in respawn rounds, TJHaLy's shots struggled to find value. The second series didn't see TJHaLy improve as morale slowly grew thin for Rise Nation as Team Kaliber stole round after round.
Tries to rally his team
July 30, 2018
Rated fell apart in a 3-1 loss to Rise Nation in the Losers Final at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Despite having a spectacular Losers Bracket run, going from Losers Round 1 to the Losers Final, Rated couldn't stabilize in a difficult series. This was because Rated just couldn't slay out against his opponents. Though Red Reserve is known for winning with low KDs, this series saw Rated struggle to hit an even KD in most rounds. The only round Rated, and Red Reserve, succeeded in was in Round 1 Hardpoint. There, Rated was able to clutch up for his team with a triple kill by pre-firing an entrance to win the map. But that level of spawn awareness was lacking from Rated in all other rounds.
Fails to pressure flanks
July 30, 2018
Joee attempted to bully Rise Nation in a 3-1 loss in the Losers Final at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Normally a weak KD wouldn't be a problem for Joee, but his flanks, which are key to Red Reserve's spawn manipulation, were unable to have a significant impact. This was because Joee struggled to find openings in Rise Nation's defense as his opponents stuck close to one another. Because of Rise Nation's stacking, Joee's flanks found him running into 1-vs.-2 gunfights against his favor. However, Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie did see him carry the round as he was able to land late-game Scorestreaks that zoned Rise Nation from rotations into the third Ventilation Room Hardpoint.
