eUnited
Objective guru in Hardpoint
August 13, 2017
Arcitys finished with a 68/60 KD in eUnited's win over Allegiance on Saturday that moved them into the winners semifinals at Call of Duty Champs 2017.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys had a much better go of things in this series than his brother Prestinni did. He opened things with a big showing in Round 1 Hardpoint where he managed a massive a 2:52 of time on the point. eUnited sure needed it since things one came down to the wire, with both teams getting to the 240-point threshold. He didn't do as well in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but once his team got into a nice groove, he just needed to add in a kill here and there to help eUnited secure the win. The final two rounds were fairly standard, although they did get trounced in Uplink. Round 4 Hardpoint was more of a formality than anything, though, as they easily picked up the win to set up a date with Team EnVyUs in the winners semifinals.
Suffers under the pressure
August 13, 2017
Arcitys chokes early leads with a 59/67 KD in a loss to Team EnVyUs on Day 4 of the 2017 CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
This was an insane series of highs and lows for Arcitys and eUnited. Round 1 Hardpoint on Breakout saw Arcitys tear through Team EnVyUs alongside his twin brother, Prestinni. There was little Team EnVyUs could do to stop a steamrolling eUnited, such as when Arcitys got a wiped all of Team EnVyUs over by showers during the second Cell Block hill. But, unfortunately, Arcitys dominant slaying weakened across the series. Round 4 Hardpoint on Retaliation saw this in actions with Arcitys sitting near a double negative score for most of the match. His panic was clear with him making odd and desperate pushes during the second Hotel Hallway and the third Bridge point.
Hot first round fades in sweep loss
August 12, 2017
Arcitys had a great first round, but did little else in the sweep loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 4 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship. The loss ended eUnited's championship bid.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a wild round, with eUnited coming back after a big deficit (49-5 and 142-100) only to lose 250-213. Arcitys was key in even getting it that close), going 30/24 with 53 seconds on the objective. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw eUnited lose every game, and get totally outclassed. Their strategy did not work against Luminosity, but they tried it anyway. Round 3 Uplink was a close, heartbreaking loss in overtime. Arcitys was mostly a non-factor in the 12-10 loss. He had three points and a measly 21/27 KD in the round.
Fudges his way to Scorestreaks
August 11, 2017
Arcitys used smart tricks to win 3-1 against Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of the 2017 CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
With slaying becoming the dominant tactic it's become rare to see sly strategies to eek out win, but Arcitys brings them back in a stunning fashion. Arcitys began to show up in the second half of the series starting with Round 3 Uplink on Frost. The tight corners of the map allowed Arcitys and Clayster to tear through Luminosity Gaming with SMGs. Arcitys was much slier in Round 4 Hardpoint on Throwback where he was able to get a full suite of Scorestreaks just off of five kills. He did this by "juggling" the first Bike Path point, jumping in and out in order to get points for contesting. The Scorestreaks were vital in closing out the final rotations of hills, mainly on the third Baseball hill.
Nearly sacks his team
August 10, 2017
Arcitys delivered an uneasy game in a win over Team Infused in Group C on Day 2 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys was full of mishaps despite eUnited's dominant win into the playoff brackets. The uncharacteristic performance was clear as early as Round 1 Hardpoint on Scorch. In the second Turbine hill, Arcitys was able to break with an early rotation but he was left alone in a 1-vs-4. Instead of attempting to play his life, he attempted to challenge, quickly getting cut down and letting Team Infused get the break. Arcitys gave an abysmal game in Round 3 Uplink where he entered the second half with a 3/13 KD, easily sacking his team. Though eUnited scrapped out the win, it was only because Arcitys woke up after a miserable first half to drop a game-winning quad-kill.
Clutches up on Uplink
August 10, 2017
Arcitys finished eUnited's 3-0 win over Lethal Gaming on Day 1 of Call of Duty Champs 2017 with a 53/50 KD.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys aged like a fine wine in this series against Lethal. He started off with a poor 15/19 performance in Round 1 Hardpoint, as he barely contributed to what ended up being a fairly easy win for his team. Moving into Round 2 Search & Destroy, he was a bit better, but not overtly so. He mainly stuck to planting the bomb, ending with three plants in the 6-5 thriller. His most exciting moment of the game came when he shut down a 1-vs-3 that JuJu almost clucthed. The only problem was that he didn't have enough time to get the defuse, and eUnited still lost the round. Despite that, they still rallied back from a 5-2 deficit to get the win. Round 3 Uplink was his time to shine, as he finally stepped into the forefront of the battle to get the win. He started off with some early kills, as well as two early dunks to give his team a nice lead from the start. He ended up with an incredible 32/21 KD in the big win.
Clutches and whiffs plays
August 9, 2017
Arcitys made some awkward plays in a win over Mindfreak on Day 1 of the CWL Championships.
ANALYSIS
Unfortunately, Arcitys' most memorable performance was a silly-looking whiff in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but that single play shouldn't detract from Arcitys' solid game. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Arcitys start well thanks to a clean set of kills he secured by stacking with Prestinni. Game 5 was an exemplary fight, with Arcitys cleaning up weakened players that Prestinni tagged up with an Active Camo. Arcitys' "highlight" performance came in Game 7 when he cleaned out the map with his Trinity Rocket...only to kill himself with the last rocket as he hopped out of his HUD to challenge a player, giving Mindfreak a free game. Thankfully, eUnited still clutched out the round thanks to Arcitys' Bombardment.
Gets slaughtered by a lack of drive
August 3, 2017
For some reason, Arcitys wasn't feeling the hype of being in the Winner's Finals of the Stage 2 Playoffs and it cost him and eUnited, as he only scored an overall KD of 43/58.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys has been one who fed off the energy of his entire team, especially recent addition Clayster, but that energy was absent this series against Team EnVyUs. Arcitys started off well enough in Round 1 Hardpoint, where he'd get a positive KD of 24/22 and the most Hardpoint control time of his team at 1:07. But despite his decent performance there Team EnVyUs would still clobber them by almost 100 points. That must've demoralized Arcitys right then and there, because in Round 2 Search & Destroy he'd fare much worse with a mere KD of 3/7. Arcitys would attempt to revitalize things in Round 3 Uplink, where he'd be the only one to score on eUnited with a dunk, but a lackluster KD of 16/29 indicated he was defeated already in terms of morale, as Team EnVyUs would banish them into the Losers Bracket in a 3-0 sweep.
Supports his team on their flanks
July 29, 2017
Arcitys covers his team's back with a 69/81 KD in a win over Enigma6 on Day 1 of the Stage 2 CWL Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
There's no reason to change what works, and what works for Arcitys is his support role. As usual, Arcitys didn't slay hard, but was essential in holding points and covering flanks. Round 1 Hardpoint saw Arcitys start slow with a 22/25 KD, failing to cover his team's on occasion, such as at the second Drill hill where Enigma6 flipped spawns. He played much better in Round 2 Search & Destroy on Breakout where he could spot out flanks. In Game 6, for example, he hid in the Graveyard where he had both excellent cover and sight of entrances, allowing him to clutch the round.
Anchors his team together
July 17, 2017
Arcitys holds the line with a 54/58 KD in a victory over Splyce on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys continues to be eUnited's main anchor, emulating his role from earlier in the season. While Clayster and Prestinni pushed out, Arcitys and SiLLy held rotations and spawns. His defense was a subtle force in Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback. Mainly, he made sure to keep spawns in eUnited's favor, especially in the second set of rotation. His best round was in Round 3 Uplink where he made some outstanding plays. In the second half, Arcitys was able to make two clutch intercepts from Splyce, preventing the Europeans from sending the game into overtime.
Poor Uplink in win
July 16, 2017
Arcitys had a nice game outside of the final round of the sweep victory over Red Reserve on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys came out strong in Round 1 Hardpoint. eUnited had it rather easy, winning 250-143, and were comfortably ahead of Red Reserve throughout the round. Arcitys had a rock-solid 22/12 KD, and paired that with a dominant 1:59 on the objective. Arcitys had the final kill in Game 6 of Round 2 Search & Destroy. Prestinni dominated the round, but Arcitys provided invaluable support. Round 3 Uplink was an incredible, dramatic, round. Arcitys had a poor 17/29 KD ratio, but he provided something important. He started a late comeback that saw them overcome a 6-3 deficit with less than a minute left in the game. His throw made it 6-4, and he stayed alive just long enough to distract Red Reserve, and put the comeback in motion.
Falls back to protect spawns
July 15, 2017
Arcitys holds the lines with a 56/44 KD in a 3-0 sweep against Rise Nation on Day 2 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys once again let his team kill everything while just holding spawns. This doesn't mean Arcitys didn't pull his own weight, though. He was excellent in Round 1Harpdoint on Scorch on defense, constantly checking flanks with SiLLy while also securing rotations. The duo showed no fear in just blowing past Rise Nation while Clayster and Prestinni pushed out to cut spawns. In the first Bridge point even saw Arcitys flip the spawns in the very first teamfight. Meanwhile, Arcitys kept sight over his teammates, allowing him to trade out kills in an instant, such as in Game 7 when eUnited was a man down but still won a teamfight against Rise Nation.
Makes nice plays but struggles against Red Reserve
July 15, 2017
Arcitys collected just a 76/82 KD in Saturday's 3-2 Group Yellow loss to Red Reserve.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys made some nice plays in the series, including a nice double kill (both headshots) on Round 1 Hardpoint. eUnited led the slays in the round, but it wasn't enough as the team fell behind 1-0. He finished just 2/9 during Round 2 Search & Destroy, but did execute four bomb plants as eUnited evened the series. He added another few highlight plays in Round 3 Uplink. Among them were a one-point toss just before dying, an amazing body block and slay of Joee to keep the round a 4-2 contest and a double kill with a trinity rocket. The effort wasn't enough, but a huge three-piece late in Round 4 Hardpoint on Retaliation that held down Hotel Hallway secured a series tie heading into the last round. Arcitys played decently well in Round 5 Search & Destroy, posting a 7/8 KD with three bomb plants, but it wasn't enough as eUnited dropped their first match of Group Yellow to fall to 2-1.
Controls the rotations and spawns
July 15, 2017
Arcitys handles the map for his team in a 3-1 win over Splyce on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys had no need to slay heavily thanks to the absurd amount of kills his teammates were posting. However, despite doing great in respawn, eUnited still needs to work on their Search & Destroy game. Arcitys swung the map in his team's favor in Round 1 Hardpoint on Breakout by making a break in the first Cell Block to Graveyard rotation, snapping two kills as Splyce tickled off spawn. This allowed Arcitys to gain map control, which helped them lock up the win. Round 2 Search & Destroy on Throwback saw Arcitys struggle slightly due Splyce's better gameplay. Games 8-10 saw Splyce slow down the game to a crawl, forcing the obscenely aggressive Arcitys to force plays and make mistakes. In Game 8, Arcitys played straight into an ambush from Splyce.
Lags behinds his slayers
July 14, 2017
Arcitys readjusts to new roles with a 76/78 KD in a 3-1 win over Rise Nation on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Arcitys had a surprisingly rough start even with a fresh line-up. Thankfully, both Clayster and Prestinni were able to hold the team together until Arcitys and SiLLy warmed-up and slayed out. Arcitys largely sat back to hold points while Clayster and Prestinni fanned out to press flanks and spawns. Arcitys would perform better in Round 2 Search & Destroy thanks to risky strategies. In Game 8, Arcitys planted at Bomb A and acted as bait, challenging a risky fight just to spot for his team before they flank. Game 11 also saw Arcitys clutch the round thanks to a great double kills from his Trinity Rockets.
