Up and down in bad loss
July 13, 2018
Clayster helped in the wins and did little in the losses of the reverse-sweep loss to OpTic Gaming on Day 3, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
The first two rounds, and the last three rounds, tell a completely different story for eUnited. Round 1 Hardpoint was a beautifully won round, as they came roaring back from behind to complete a nice comeback. Clayster struggled early in the round, but he ended up having a strong second half as they started their comeback. Round 2 Search & Destroy was another win, but Clayster struggled. eUnited played an incredible aggressive game, making risky push after risky push, trying to get OpTic Gaming off balance. It worked, because they won the round, but Clayster fell victim to OpTic due to his risky challenges more often than not. However, that was the end of the good times for eUnited. They lost the next three rounds, and lost rather badly; Round 3 Capture the Flag was a 6-2 defeat, Round 4 Hardpoint was a 250-115 loss, and Round 5 Search & Destroy was a 6-1 loss. They were blown out in each of the three rounds, and everyone really struggled to do much once OpTic Gaming started to roll.
Inspires his teammates to win
July 11, 2018
Clayster hyped up his teammates in a 3-1 win over UNILAD eSports on Wednesday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was his vibrant self again this series, leading his team with an even louder vigor than ever before, to take a key series to secure playoff hopes. This effort was also helped by his solid KD that shutdown UNILAD Esports. In Round 1 Hardpoint on London Docks, Clasyter led the charge early on by keeping his teammates in the game as they warmed up. Landing two separate five killstreaks between the first Statue Hardpoint and Docks Warehouse, Clasyter used his assault rifle to dominate the long sight lines of the map. But as his teammates made slowly plays, his constant (and loud) encouragement quickly allowed eUnited to outpace UNILAD Esports by Round 3 Capture the Flag.
Strong late game in win
July 11, 2018
Clayster overcame early struggles to put in a great final two rounds of the reverse sweep win over Rise Nation on Day 1, Week 7 of CWL Global Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster struggled in Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 2 Search & Destroy and Round 3 Capture the Flag, for the most part. He went just 22/35 in the opening round, pitching in a little in the latter stages, but struggling to slay with a strong performance from Rise Nation overall. Round 2 Search & Destroy was similar, as he struggled to slay until the end of the round. He put in a good performance in each of Games 7 and 8, which were two of the three wins for eUnited in the round loss. While they won Round 3 Capture the Flag 2-1, on the back of strong defensive play, Clayster struggled. He went just 14/17 in the round, as he was the only member of eUnited to come in under the 20 kill mark. He exploded in Round 4 Hardpoint, netting 40 kills in the 250-207 win. He did not start them off, as Felony was the early leader for them, but he took the reins and ran with it all the way through to the end of the round. His slaying ability was a key reason why the Rise Nation comeback could not finish the job. Round Hardpoint was a dominant round for Felony, and everyone else on eUnited filled in the blanks behind him to finish off the nine-game win.
Solid showing in win
June 7, 2018
Clayster was a solid contributor in the 3-1 win over OpTic Gaming on Day 2, Week 4, of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster had a nice performance in this win. Round 1 Hardpoint was a hot start for him, as he went 29/20 with 1:39 on the objective; he put together a strong two-way showing, from the beginning of the round where he helped get them out to an early lead, to when he had a huge kill to spring the break that got them to 250 points. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him carry his solid performance from the previous round, as he sniped OpTic Gaming early and often. He had three kills in the first game, the final kill in Game 8, and three snipes to finish the job to win Game 9, winning the round 6-3. Clayster carried his team in Round 3 Capture the Flag. His three teammates were woefully outslayed, but Clayster and his 22 kills kept the round competitive. Round 4 Hardpoint saw him play very well as they lead 223-52, but he struggled down the stretch as they gave up 100 points before winning 250-153.
Swings the entire series
May 31, 2018
Clayster railed Rise Nation in the late game in a 3-2 reverse-sweep win on Thursday of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster pulled off the momentum swing eUnited desperately needed. The first two rounds seemed entirely in Rise Nation's favor as Clayster and his team struggled to win long-range fights against SlasheR. However, by Round 3 Capture the Flag Clayster popped off. Landing an extraordinary nine-kill streak, he was able to steal the round by raining down Scorestreaks onto Rise Nation. And when Clayster heats up, he hypes up the rest of his team. Clayster's inspired leadership allowed eUnited to steal Round 4 Hardpoint and Round 5 Search & Destroy from underneath Rise Nation's nose.
Reaches his final form in the last two rounds
May 31, 2018
It took a round loss to shake Clayster out of his complacency, as eUnited were able to reverse their fortunes with a 3-1 series victory over Mindfreak on Wednesday of Week 3 of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.
ANALYSIS
Clayster needed to be reminded not to underestimate the potential of Mindfreak. A decisive loss in Round 1 Hardpoint was a shocking wake-up call for Clayster, suffering through the round with a negative KD of 18/26 and a loss by 73 points. Early on in Round 2 Search & Destroy, it looked like Clayster didn't learn his lesson, as Mindfreak gained an early lead, but Clayster woke up in time to break even in KD with 8/8 and clutch the round in a Game 11 gunfight. From here, Clayster applied his full range of skills against Mindfreak, as in Round 3 Capture the Flag, he scored a solid KD of 22/15, allowing his teammates to come back yet again from an early Mindfreak lead. Round 4 Hardpoint almost slipped away from eUnited, but Clayster's stands on the hardpoints, where he claimed 1:41 of hardpoint control time and a 33/29 KD, allowed eUnited to clutch the series 3-1.
Gets super confident after win against Ghost Gaming
April 24, 2018
Clayster got a confidence boost after helping his team eUnited score a 3-0 shutout against Ghost Gaming in the Winners Semifinals of CWL Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Clayster was his usual boisterous self throughout CWL Seattle, but he was even more so after they took down Open Bracket upstarts Ghost Gaming to advance to the CWL Seattle Winners Semifinals. The match started out relatively evenly when eUnited was able to stop Ghost Gaming from winning Round 1 Hardpoint by less than 30 seconds, Clayster's contribution to that victory being a barely negative KD of 28/31 and 39 seconds of hardpoint control time. Things looked to go in favor of Ghost Gaming early in Round 2 Search & Destroy, as Ghost Gaming won three straight games at first, but eUnited answered back with six straight game victories in response, as Clayster notched a positive KD of 5/4. Round 3 Capture the Flag was no contest, as eUnited scored four flag captures collectively while Ghost Gaming scored none, while Clayster scored a cool KD of 17/11. Clayster was so pumped from the shutout that he led eUnited on a collective teabagging session of a Ghost Gaming corpse in the final seconds of the match.
Excellent start to sweep loss
April 22, 2018
Clayster started off hot, but eUnited still were swept by Rise Nation in the loser's bracket Final of CWL Seattle, seeing them eliminated from the tournament and placing in third place.
ANALYSIS
Clayster had a very hot start to this match, putting together an incredible start to Round 1 Hardpoint. He was the best player on the map in the early goings, and it got eUnited off to a quick lead. While eUnited faltered, Rise Nation rose, and eUnited lost the round, Clayster finished with a strong 23/19 KD. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw him continue to play well, as he and Arcitys led the team and kept them afloat during a strong game from Rise Nation. While they only squeaked three wins in the round, he was certainly good on an individual level. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him stumble from his heights in previous rounds, as he went 15/15 in the final round of the match.
Runs assault rifles again
April 7, 2018
Clayster dominated Rise Nation with an unusual set up in a 3-0 sweep on Day 1 of the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Clayster and eUnited are beginning to look like the only team to consistently counter Rise Nation. Using an unusual set up of two ARs and two SMGs, Clayster looked far more comfortable and confident with the off-meta loadout where Arcitys and Clayster could score important picks. Clayster's leadership skills were also a massive boon. The trust he has built with his team allowed him to rebound a flag capture in the final moments of a chaotic Round 3 Capture the Flag, as he could trust his teammates to cover his flanks.
Starts strong before falling off
April 2, 2018
Clasyter failed to snowball leads in a 3-0 loss to Reckless in the Loser's Bracket of CWL Birmingham, slotting into 13th-16th place.
ANALYSIS
Clayster started out looking like his old self only to slowly fall apart across the series. In Round 1 Hardpoint, Clayster began the map with a seven killstreak that shut out Reckless from almost two full hill rotations. But despite this extremely strong groundwork to snowball the game, Clayster lost the map due to an inability to push out Reckless' spawns or use his Scorestreaks effectively.
Does the unthinkable in Search & Destroy
March 31, 2018
While Clayster didn't have the best respawn rounds, his extraordinary performance in Round 2 Search & Destroy helped his team eUnited pull off a 3-0 upset victory against Rise Nation on Day 1 of CWL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Clayster wanted to prove that eUnited are back, and after a loss to Echo Fox earlier in Day 1 of CWL Birmingham, he had the opportunity to do just that with Rise Nation, and he took it. Round 1 Hardpoint was a standard Clayster performance with a KD of 30/27 and 1:05 of hardpoint control time that gave eUnited the win by a 110-second margin. Round 2 Search & Destroy was where Clayster, well, destroyed the competition, especially in the dramatic final game (Game 10) where he easily thwarted a deep flanking play by TJHaLy and earns himself an overall triple-positive KD for the round at 12/4. Clayster fell behind a bit in Round 3 Capture the Flag with a negative KD of 14/20, but he still contributed to eUnited's round victory with a flag capture and seals the upset sweep of Rise Nation.
Plans around Splyce's tactics
March 22, 2018
Clayster came into this series prepared to 3-0 Splyce on Thursday of the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1, Division B, securing eUnited's seeding for the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs in the process.
ANALYSIS
Clayster's preparation was abundantly clear. Not only that, but Clayster absolutely tore through Splcye with top-tier slaying. Clayster started strong on Round 1 Hardpoint he scored a 6/1 KD by the second hill, and an 18/8 KD by the second set of rotations. This was thanks to Clayster playing in lane rather than on the point in order to pressure Splyce back. But his tactical mind was highlighted in Round 2 Search & Destroy. Clayster was able to rebound from a 5-3 deficit by playing defensively against Splyce. Instead of fighting in teamfights, Clayster tried to hold high ground and corner in order to pick off Splyce as they came into his cross-hairs.
Strong middle rounds in loss
March 15, 2018
Clayster surrounded two strong rounds with two weak ones in the 3-1 loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 1 of Week 3 of CWL Global Pro League, Stage 1.
ANALYSIS
The two Hardpoint rounds, Round 1 and Round 4, were Clayster's worst rounds of the match. He struggled to below 1.00 KDs in each (23/27 and 32/40) as they dropped both rounds. The last round was better than the first, though. He was a big reason why they initially got the lead after their big deficit; his four-kill streak on the back of SiLLy's seven-kill streak and Arcitys eight-kill streak got them their first lead of the round. He did not, however, put together a complete round in either. After a very effective support-based Round 2 Search & Destroy -- their sole round win -- he was excellent in Round 3 Capture the Flag. He ran out to a 9/1 start, and did not stop there. He and Arcitys kept the round competitive, as their 27 and 26 kills respectively held up their team. Luminosity's strong depth overcame them, however, as it did all match.
Tries to save the late game
March 9, 2018
Clayster stumbled in a 3-0 loss to FaZe Clan on Day 1 of CWL Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Clayster's woes only continue to grow. After two weeks of rest to practice and scrim, many of the same problems rest within eUnited's plays. Mainly, Clasyter and his team can't slay out in the current meta. Round 1 Hardpoint on Valkyrie saw Clasyter end with a double negative KD, demonstrating eUnited's lack of consistent slaying. Round 2 Search & Destroy showed how eUnited struggled to coordinate as Clasyter was often caught in mid-map with his teammates as he tried to press FaZe Clan. Clasyter, however, began to carry his team in the first half of Round 3 Capture the Flag, only to quickly fall again.
Will play at CWL Atlanta
March 9, 2018
Clayster will play at CWL Atlanta, the slayer relayed on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
There was some concern Clayster might opt to be with an ailing family member, but it seems as if the person's condition is stable enough for the slayer to play in Atlanta. eUnited face an uphill climb at the third LAN event of the competitive year, but with Clayster in tow there's certainly a chance for the roster to rattle off a string of wins.
