Faded in final round
July 20, 2018
Scump played well, but did not end the match in great shape, as OpTic Gaming fell 3-2 to Luminosity Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Scump started off this match excellently. He put together a strong first round after starting it off slowly, and capped it off with a seven-kill streak to finish off Luminosity and secure the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him play a solid second fiddle to Crimsix for the majority of the round. The duo kept it close, and once his teammates picked it up they were able to force an eleventh game. They ended up losing it, though. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a middling round for him, as he went 14/14 in the 2-1 loss. It was a slow, defensive round, and Scump could not break through the Luminosity defense. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him put it together late - the beginning of the round was a struggle for him, but he and the rest of his team put it together down the stretch to force a Round 5 Search & Destroy. Scump struggled to find his footing in that fifth round, and fell to Luminosity in eleven games.
More good than bad in close loss
July 20, 2018
Octane played well on an individual level, but OpTic Gaming still fell to Luminosity Gaming in their 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Octane started off well in Round 1 Hardpoint, putting together a dominant showing from start to finish. He went 26/16 with 1:36 on the objective - it was a consistent effort, and his play both on the objective and in the slaying department put Luminosity down easily. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him limp out of the gate, but put together a strong game down the stretch as they forced an eleventh game; one that they lost. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw Octane struggle to break through the Luminosity defense - it was a slow, defensive round, and Octane struggled to do much of anything. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him put together his game late, as he, Scump and Crimsix picked it up to give Methodz the support he needed to force a fifth round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him play very well, but he could not put OpTic Gaming over the top in the eleven game loss.
Strong respawn in loss
July 20, 2018
Methodz had great respawn rounds, but they were not enough to get OpTic Gaming to outlast Luminosity Gaming in the 3-2 loss on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Methodz best rounds came in the respawn rounds of this loss. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him lead the lobby in kills with 28, and also have a strong 1:05 on the objective. It was a dominant team effort - everyone on OpTic had over 1:00 on the objective, and all of them were solid slayers to boot. It was, simply put, a great team performance, and Methodz was on the forefront of that. He was their best player in a tough Round 3 Capture the Flag. They only had one flag cap, as they just could not break through the strong Luminosity Gaming defense. He led his team with 17 kills, but it was not enough offense to change the round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Methodz lead them early on. He was really the only good player on OpTic in the beginning of the round, and he kept them afloat as his teammates were lost. They eventually found themselves, as OpTic Gaming forced a fifth round - they do not have a chance to do it without Methodz, however. He did not play well in either Search & Destroy - he struggled to find his footing in both, and they lost both in eleven games.
Mostly good in loss
July 20, 2018
Crimsix played well, but he could not will OpTic Gaming to get over the hump in the 3-2 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint saw Crimsix play well early on, helping get OpTic Gaming out to a quick lead. He ended up having an okay-at-best 18/18 KD, but had a strong 1:30 on the objective, which was the crux of his productivity. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Crimsix carry them early on, and lead OpTic Gaming to an eleventh game down the stretch, as his teammates picked it up. Round 3 Capture the Flag, and most of Round 4 Hardpoint, contained his worst stretch. He struggled to a 14/16 KD in their Round 3 Capture the Flag loss - he was just never able to find his footing in the defensive round. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Methodz carry them in the early going. Crimsix picked it up late, and had an incredible run to complete the comeback and force a fifth round. He played well in that fifth round, but they were up-ended in an eleventh game yet again.
Search & Destroy focused in win
July 20, 2018
Slacked's best rounds came in the Search & Destroy rounds of the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Slacked's best rounds came in the two Search & Destroy wins. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, saw him dominate the early game, and hang on as they managed to win the round in eleven game. Round 5 Search & Destroy was another eleven game win, but Slacked was more consistent in this one, playing well throughout the game instead of fading a little down the stretch. The respawn rounds for Slacked were a bit, as he went 60/66 in the three rounds. His best respawn round was Round 3 Capture the Flag, as he came up large in extra time. He picked up the flag after John went down, made a few kills, and got the game winning flag cap. He went 14/14 in the round win.
Mostly good game in win
July 20, 2018
John was not perfect, but he was certainly more good than bad in the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
John had his good rounds, and his bad rounds, but he was more good than bad in this win. Both Hardpoint rounds housed similar performances from John, and they were his two worst rounds. He struggled to slay consistently in both of the rounds, but he had solid performances on the objective - they did lose both of the rounds. Round 2 Search & Destroy was his first great round. He was a part of the three-headed attack, alongside Slacked and FormaL - though he was the most consistent one out of the three, considering he kept it up even as OpTic Gaming came back to force an eleventh game; a game Luminosity would win. He was dominant in Round 3 Capture the Flag, leading the lobby in kills with 19, and making the play of the round. He got the flag with seconds left on the clock to force extra time - they ended up getting that flag cap and winning the round. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw John put together another excellent round, as he and his sniper rifle led them to another eleven game win.
Showed up when it mattered
July 20, 2018
JKap was far from perfect in this one, but he came up in the clutch in the 3-2 win over OpTIc Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
JKap saw his fair share of struggles in this one - Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go just 11/21, and Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him go 12/17; he struggled to slay in both of these rounds, and did not do enough on the objective to overcome his slaying flaws. Round 4 Hardpoint was easily his most consistent round, despite it coming in a losing effort. He was one of the three players on Luminosity that led them to their early lead - and he stayed consistent even when OpTic Gaming rose up to take the lead and the win. Both of his Search & Destroy rounds were very similar - he struggled in the early going, but came up large in the game eleven to win them the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him win a one on one against Methodz, and Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him clutch a three on one to win them the round, and the match.
Struggled with some inconsistencies
July 20, 2018
FormaL was never able to find consistent ground in the 3-2 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 3, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
FormaL had issues with consistency in this win - and in many cases he was up and down within the same round. Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 2 Search & Destroy were examples of that - he started off both rounds very good, by the faded as the rounds reached their conclusions. They were not able to hold on in the first round, but they did pull out a win in the second round. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him play a solid support role in the close win. John was their top man in the round, but FormaL did a lot of good on the defensive side of the game, and in support of his teammates. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him have a round similar to the first two - he started hot, but faded as the round went on and OpTic Gaming got in the lead. Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him put together a solid game in the eleven game win.
Up-and-down play
July 19, 2018
Slacked was inconsistent in his play during the 3-1 loss to Rise Nation on Day 2, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Slacked started this match slowly. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him play really well to open the round, but that did not last long; John ended up taking over for him, and Slacked limped to a 16/21 KD to finish off the first round. He began to pick it up in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as he played well in a support role behind JKap, and late John, to give them their only round win of the match. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw their offense stop completely after their only first flag cap, though Slacked played rather well despite that. He went 22/21 in the round, as he and John put up a valiant fight, but the depth behind them was far too weak to break through the Rise defense. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Slacked be productive solely through the objective, in which he had 1:22 there. He was an inconsistent slayer (21/27 KD), but his Hardpoint time made up for it. He helped get them to a 230-200 lead, though they threw it away to lose the round and match.
Plays rather well in loss
July 19, 2018
Luminosity Gaming as a whole struggled, but John played rather well individually in the 3-1 loss to Rise Nation on Day 2, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
John had some struggles in the early going of this loss, but he took over for Slacked as the best player on the team in the middle of the round. His 21 kills led his team, but he still died 24 times and had 44 seconds on the objective. He was not perfect, but he was not bad either. Round 2 Search & Destroy was similar, as he struggled a bit early, but was excellent late in the round, and he and JKap combined to finish off Rise Nation and win the round. He was their best player in Round 3 Capture the Flag, netting 24 kills (a team high) and finishing with the only positive KD on Luminosity (24/21). He was excellent, but he had no support, and their offense was stifled after their only flag cap. Round 4 Hardpoint saw John and FormaL lead them to a 230-200 lead. It looked as though the duo would lead them to a fifth round, but a late comeback by Rise Nation stifled those efforts.
Searches & Destroys
July 19, 2018
JKap dominated Search & Destroy, but struggled elsewhere, in the 3-1 loss to Rise Nation on Day 2, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was JKap's best round, by far. He dominated from beginning to end, helping give them their only round win of the match. He had the final kill in Game 1, and kept up that pace through the 6-4 win. The rest of his performance left a lot to be desired, however. He went just 46/70 in the three respawn rounds; he did some quality things on the objective (namely getting 40 seconds on the Hardpoint in Round 1 Hardpoint, and 58 seconds in Round 4 Hardpoint), but overall his lack of slaying outweighed them. Simply put, he could not find his slaying shoes outside of a dominant Search & Destroy performance.
Comes alive at the very end
July 19, 2018
FormaL did not show up until the last round of the 3-1 defeat to Rise Nation on Day 2, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
FormaL took a while before he got into a groove in this match. The first three rounds were filled with up-and-down play for him, as he went just 15/19 with 40 seconds on the objective in Round 1 Hardpoint, and he struggled to do much of anything as Rise Nation ran through them to a rather easy win. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him have his very good moments, but he was not their star; JKap filled that role, and John put it together late in the game to finish off their win. FormaL was a quality support player behind them. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a tight 2-1 loss, and FormaL's and JKap's struggles were a big reason why. Neither of them could slay at all (FormaL went just 16/22), and that really put their offense on hold. Round 4 Hardpoint was, easily, his best round. He had 28 kills and had 1:45 on the objective in the loss, though they were certainly close to forcing a round five. He and John led them to a 230-200 lead, but a strong late-game showing from Rise Nation pulled the rug out from under them.
Dominant respawn player in win
July 19, 2018
TJHaLy put together a dominant display in the three respawn rounds of the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 2, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
TJHaLy's performance in the respawn rounds of this win. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him play the role of entry man for Rise Nation, and it worked to perfection for them. He got the kills that got them into the hill time and time again, and made the round win rather easy for Rise Nation. Round 3 Capture the Flag was a close 2-1 win, and TJHaLy's slaying was a big reason why their defense was so stringent against the Luminosity attack. He ended up with 30 kills in the round, providing a consistent slaying attack for Rise Nation. He also had a brilliant use of multiple Scorestreaks at the end of the round to preemptively prevent any possible Luminosity push. Round 4 Hardpoint saw TJHaLy play a versatile game. In the early stages of the round, he laid off his slaying duties to focus on the objective; however, he picked it up in the slaying department in the latter stages of the round, as Luminosity took a (short-lived) lead. His Round 2 Search & Destroy showing (their only loss) was his weakest round. He was rather inconsistent in the loss, as Luminosity did a good job of keeping him off balance.
Versatile performer in win
July 19, 2018
SlasheR produced in many different ways throughout the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 2, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
SlasheR had a low-key Round 1 Hardpoint, as he decided to focus on the objective rather than slaying. He had a small amount of interactions (13/15), but he managed to accrue 2:00 on the objective. He only slayed when he needed to, as he committed all of his time to the objective. It helped Rise Nation run out to an early lead and win easy. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw SlasheR and Gunless carry the load, but they could not overcome the strong depth from Luminosity, as Luminosity handed Rise Nation their only round loss. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw SlasheR play more of a support-based role, as he added a nice slaying behind strong games from Loony and TJHaLy. The trio was more than good enough to hold off the Luminosity offense, holding them to just one flag cap in the 2-1 win. His best slaying round was Round 4 Hardpoint, where he notched 32 kills. His dominant slaying was key to their win; he kept them afloat early, and helped them come storming back after trailing 230-200.
Excellent respawn rounds in win
July 19, 2018
Loony played great in each of the respawn rounds of the 3-1 win over Luminosity Gaming on Day 2, Week 8 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Round 2 Search & Destroy was the only round that Loony did not have a huge imprint on. He was solid, and fell into a more support-based role behind Gunless and SlasheR, but that was not enough to overcome Luminosity, as Rise Nation suffered their only loss. The rest of his performance saw him play well, but was never in the spotlight. Round 1 Hardpoint saw him go 21/15 with 1:07 on the objective in the round, providing a solid game, both in the slaying and objective department. He was not their star, but quality games like that on both ends of the map make the wins that much easier. That continued into Round 3 Capture the Flag, as he was a stalwart defender in the 2-1 win. His focus on the defensive part of the game made him fly under the radar a little bit, though he was key in preserving their slim lead. Round 4 Hardpoint saw Loony not slay particularly well (23/26), but he made up for his inconsistent slaying with an incredible performance on the objective (2:05). Those Hardpoint minutes were key, as they needed every second to come back from their 230-200 deficit to win the round, and therefore the match.
