Outclassed by OpTic Gaming
July 28, 2017
Joshh was simply outplayed by OpTic Gaming, scoring an abysmal overall KD of 32/56, as superior tactics got the better of him on Day 2 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
Joshh was a competent player during this series, but the players of OpTic Gaming were clearly better than him as he was easily intimidated by their superior tactics and skill. Joshh started out shaky in Round 1 Hardpoint, only notching a 12/20 KD and 40 seconds of objective time, and while Epsilon eSports did close the gap to within 100 points against OpTic, the effort wasn't nearly enough for a win. Joshh would go on in Round 2 Search & Destroy to secure only one kill and wind up with a KD of 1/7, easily the worst of his team and indicative of OpTic's 6-1 sweep against them that round. Finally, in Round 3 Uplink, the one bright spot in Joshh's performance was that he was the only one to score any points with a couple of tosses in the first half, but his negative KD of 19/29 slowed him down, allowing OpTic to get away with a 3-0 sweep against Epsilon.
Lone bright spot during Hardpoint
July 28, 2017
Vortex prevented Epsilon eSports' humiliation against OpTic Gaming on Day 2 of Group Green thanks to his slaying during Hardpoint, notching an overall KD of 47/51.
ANALYSIS
Even though OpTic Gaming would handily take Round 1 Hardpoint away from Epsilon eSports, Vortex at least went out with some dignity. He would have the most objective control time on his team at 1:25 and the only positive KD for his team at 20/17. Things would quickly go south for Vortex in Round 2 Search & Destroy, however, where he'd quickly get dominated, especially in the last game of that round in dramatic fashion as the last member alive of Epsilon, and he'd only notch a 3/6 KD. It didn't get much better for Vortex in Round 3 Uplink, where he'd go negative once more with a 24/28 KD as OpTic Gaming dominated his team in a 3-0 sweep.
Struggles to keep up against OpTic Gaming
July 28, 2017
Hawqeh just couldn't keep up with OpTic Gaming in his match on Day 2 of Group Green, often floundering to earn kills and only winding up with an overall KD of 43/51.
ANALYSIS
Hawqeh's game against OpTic Gaming was indeed a struggle, as none of the rounds his team played turned out the way he wanted. Round 1 Hardpoint was a lesson in pain for Hawqeh as he only notched a 16/20 KD and only got 39 seconds of objective control time. The pain would continue in Round 2 Search & Destroy as Hawqeh would die in every single engagement, even in the one game in the round that they would win, only notching a 3/7 KD for that round. Things would look up slightly for Hawqeh in Round 3 Uplink as he'd break even in KD with 24/24, but this boost would come too little, too late as Hawqeh was unable to help his teammates put any points on the board, and OpTic would sweep Epsilon eSports aside in a 3-0 victory.
Easily pushed aside by OpTic Gaming
July 28, 2017
The only thing remarkable about Dqvee's performance on Day 2 of Group Green against OpTic Gaming was how unremarkable it was, only scoring an overall KD of 44/51.
ANALYSIS
Dqvee would fail to impress anyone during his match with his team against OpTic Gaming, as his performance could only be summed up as "meh." Round 1 Hardpoint saw Dqvee fall for OpTic's strategies over and over again, as he was only able to notch a KD of 13/19 for his troubles. Dqvee would go on to get the best KD of his team in Round 2 Search & Destroy at 4/6 and also snag a couple of bomb plants, but considering how Epsilon eSports overall lost that round, that's not saying much. Dqvee would go on to just barely get a positive KD in Round 3 Uplink at 27/26, but as we all know, kills aren't everything in Call of Duty (although they do help) with Dqvee unable to put any points on the board that round.
Sacks early game, helps late game
July 24, 2017
Joshh finally finds his footing a little too late with a 51/69 KD in a loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
Joshh once again struggled to land his shots for most of the series. His weak sight was most prominent in Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback where he went double negative in KD. Unsurprisingly, the abysmal KD forced Epsilon eSports into a unwinnable position. However, Joshh would find some ground in Round 3 Uplink on Frost, where he scored much better Sloppy Payloads would be the pivot for the series, though. All of Epsilon eSports burnt their Payloads before overtime, forcing them to make bold plays without utility.
Tries to lead in slaying
July 24, 2017
Vortex attempts to outgun OpTic Gaming with a 55/60 KD in a loss on Day 3 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
Vortex struggled to find much momentum against OpTic Gaming. This was partly due to some lagging teammates early on, where Vortex performed the best, while later on he ran out of steam. Round 2 Search & Destroy on Retaliation saw the best performance out of Vortex. Scoring a 9/6 KD, he did manage to keep even in trades, but poor call outs and an even worse defense caused him to lose the round. For example, in Game 9 Vortex found OpTic Gaming in the Hotel Hallway, only for OpTic Gaming's flank to still catch his teammates by surprise. Round 3 Uplink was a tight round where he slowed behind his teammates. The round came down to overtime and his slower slaying skills hurt Epsilon eSports.
Fades into the noise
July 24, 2017
Hawqeh struggles to make a difference with a 60/58 KD in a loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
Hawqeh was largely invisible this series. He didn't score big, didn't make any big plays, but he still didn't manage to tank his team. Instead, he kept a brisk pace. Normally, this wouldn't be bad, but against the likes of OpTic Gaming, it just meant more room for them to play with. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Hawqeh perform decently with a 21/20 KD, a solid KD that wasn't enough to stop a steamrolling OpTic Gaming. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Hawqeh make some big mistakes. He even left flanks unguarded in Games 8 and 9, allowing OpTic Gaming to maneuver around them. He'd close Round 3 Uplink with a 34/30 KD.
Leads his team in the late game
July 24, 2017
Dqvee continues to be his team's core with a 65/62 KD in a loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 3 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
Dqvee was once again the main slaying force for Epsilon eSports. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Dqvee score a 20/22 KD as OpTic Gaming blasted them in a one-sided map. Dqvee stepped up in Round 3 Uplink. The incredibly close round into overtime, but Dqvee whiffed an incredibly important Active Camo. In the second half, Dqvee attempted to force a dunk by popping his Active Camo down a choke. He'd both use it too late and fail to get a point as all OpTic Gaming had to do was continue shooting. Not only that, the poor Camo use meant Epsilon eSports didn't have it going into overtime. He closed the round with a 40/32 KD.
Slides around corners to cut down targets
July 24, 2017
Scump forces aggressive plays with a 65/61 KD in a win over Epsilon eSports on Day 3 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
Scump doesn't change what works. And so far, sliding around corners and beaming down people has been working well for him. Round 2 Search & Destroy on Retaliation was a round that especially favored his newer, aggressive style. For most of the map, Scump attempted to control the hotel hallways in order to force Epsilon eSports to play around him, such as in Game 2. Round 3 Uplink on Frost was another map that favored Scump's SMGs, allowing him to score a 32/30 KD and a dunk. But smart coordination with Crimsix, especially in the second half of Overtime, helped he and OpTic take the series.
Controls the game's objectives
July 24, 2017
Karma shifts his focus to objectives with a 63/60 KD in a win over Epsilon eSports on Day 3 of Group Green.
ANALYSIS
With both FormaL and Scump slaying, Karma was free to focus on the objective without any distractions. Round 1 Hardpoint on Breakout was a prime example of this with Karma scoring a 23/21 KD and a 1:24 objective time. Karma scored early rotations of the point thanks to some strong opening kills over both first Rooftop and Cell Block point. Round 3 Uplink on Frost was a better example of Karma's objective focus as his teammates slayed. Scoring a 31/35 KD and three dunks, Karma had little to worry about until overtime. Thankfully, Karma made the smart decision to hold his Active Camo until absolutely necessary, allowing him to dunk in the first half of overtime in a minute to get the win.
