Scores low but clutches up
July 17, 2017
Prestinni scores low with a 56/59 KD, but still finds the plays to beat Splyce on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni may have been the weak link of eUnited, but he didn't have to do much against a weak Splyce while Clayster dominated the game. Despite essentially replacing Gunless in the new lineup, playing forward positions, Prestinni still needs to work on his consistency in KD scores. Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback did see Prestinni make an important play with his Active Camo. On the last Baseball hill, he popped his Active Camo and straight for Zer0, Splyce's main slayer. When he scored the kill on Zer0, he flipped Splyce out of the hill. Prestinni closed Round 1 Hardpoint with a KD.
Big Search & Destroy in win
July 16, 2017
Prestinni played well in the second round of the sweep win over Red Reserve on Day 3 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni had a slow start to this one. In a strong Round 1 Hardpoint performance for eUnited that saw them win 250-143, Prestinni was largely ineffective. He went 15/23, with 38 seconds on the objective, not doing much to contribute to the win. He turned it around in Round 2 Search & Destroy, notching the final kill in Games 4, 5, and 8, giving them to a 2-0 lead. Round 3 Uplink saw Prestinni have a middling 20/26 KD ratio, but he did contribute four points. Two of them came at the biggest possible moment, netting them the game winning points in an 8-6 victory with seconds left on the clock. It capped off an incredible comeback from being down 6-3 with around 45 seconds left.
Continues to be the new Gunless
July 15, 2017
Prestinni melts with a 65/51 KD in a 3-0 sweep of Rise Nation on Day 2 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni stomped Rise Nation. There's no other way to put it. But surprisingly, he never scored huge Scorestreaks, instead making some impressive plays with his Active Camo. Prestinni clutched the Round 1 Hardpoint with a seven killstreak on the last Hardpoint, using his Active Camo to punish Rise Nation's spawns form the hill. Round 3 Uplink on Precinct was a better display of Prestinni's skills as he made a risky play with his Active Camo. He ran across the billboard sign with his Active Camo up, casting a shadow and a dangerous target on his back, but Clayster was able to clean out the lane as Prestinni pushed the dunk. The dunk secured eUnited's victory despite the risks.
Dissolves late in loss to Red Reserve
July 15, 2017
Prestinni compiled an 83/89 KD during Saturday's 3-2 Group Yellow series loss to Red Reserve.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni started off strong with a five killstreak early in Round 1 Hardpoint and later added another four killstreak to his resume, but finished just 22/21 with 1:07 of hill time as eUnited dropped the first round of the series. He finished with a mediocre 8/8 KD during Round 2 Search & Destroy, but had a key kill of Joee as he attempted to ninja defuse the bomb and later notched a two-kill round to take a 3-1 lead en route to eUnited knotting things up. Prestinni's Round 3 Uplink and Round 4 Hardpoint (combined 46/52 KD) left much to be desired, he did have a nice couple of kills to assist in eUnited taking control of the Cathedral hill on Retaliation as the teams split the pair of maps to force a Round 5. Unfortunately, Prestinni fell below even again on the KD scale to the tune of a 7/8 mark as eUnited dropped their first series of Group Yellow with a 6-4 Round 5 Search & Destroy loss to fall to 2-1 overall.
Snaps down Splyce from afar
July 15, 2017
Prestinni annihilates with his long-range in a 3-1 win over Splyce on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni didn't impress as much as Clayster or SiLLy, but he was still more than great. Instead of attempting to slay, like in his earlier series against Rise Nation, he handled the objective and defense alongside Arcitys. His best round was in Round 3 Uplink on Precinct where he was able to get three dunks and a throw with a 20/26 KD. The huge set of points was thanks to SiLLy blocking for him as he glided across the map with the drone in the second half. Prestinni didn't waste time hitting safest routes and instead hit the fastest route possible through the street instead of ticket side. Prestinni then exploded in Round 4 Hardpoint with 22/10 KD, just obliterating with an assault rifle.
Matches Clayster's shots
July 14, 2017
Prestinni burns through Rise Nation with a 91/83 KD in a 3-1 win on Day 1 of Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni, alongside Clayster, was eUnited's core slayer in this series. In eUnited's premiere series after a dramatic roster change, Prestinni has filled the role Gunless left by taking both the SMG role and the important Active Camo Payload. Round 1 Hardpoint on Retaliation saw Prestinni clutch up a very close round by using his Active Camo to get two kills on the last Bridge hill. Prestinni also posted strong numbers in Round 3 Uplink on Frost thanks to the map favoring SMGs. However, even when Prestinni posted a 39/29 KD, his teammates couldn't slay out enough to capitalize on his kills. Again, this was due to the map design with both Clayster and Arctiys struggling to snap kills with their assault rifles.
Makes sloppy calls
June 17, 2017
Prestinni flounders against OpTic Gaming in a brutal 0-3 loss on Day 1 of CWL Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni just couldn't find what he needed as OpTic Gaming utterly handles eUnited. Even Round 1 Hardpoint, the only round where eUnited found some momentum, Prestinni was far from his best. Bad calls and poor challenges marred eUnited game, with every round holding a particular example. Round 1 Hardpoint saw eUnited trickle against OpTic Gaming's FormaL, feeding him streaks during for a hill rotation. Round 2 Search & Destroy was just a weak game where Prestinni kept hitting mid lane despite OpTic Gaming always challenging him there and winning. While Round 3 Uplink saw eUnited trickle again against FormaL, this time feeding him an 11 killstreak.
Excellent respawn in win
May 27, 2017
Prestinni was dominant in respawn rounds in the 3-1 win over Evil Geniuses on Day 2 of the Stage 1 Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni actually started off slow in Round 1 Hardpoint -- the round looked like it would be close as eUnited and Evil Geniuses were switching leads up until each team was in the 50-point area. Prestinni woke up around that time, and rattled off two killstreaks in quick succession that saw him end the round with a KD of 31/17. He also had 1:32 on the objective in what turned out to be a dominant 250-111 win. He was quieter in Round 2 Search & Destroy, though he did have an excellent Game 4 performance that saw him win a 2-vs-1 with a snipe of the first Evil Geniuses player, and a sliding Erad kill of the last remaining player. He turned it around for the next two rounds, as did eUnited. He did not do much scoring in Round 3 Uplink, only notching one point, but he had 32 kills and did an excellent job of opening up the map on many occasions. Evil Geniuses had no answer for eUnited as the latter waltzed to a 14-1 win. Round 4 Hardpoint was much of the same, with Prestinni notching 23 kills and eUnited winning 250-64 -- it was an absolutely dominant display.
Not in sync
May 27, 2017
Prestinni stumbled out of step with an 80/91 KD in a loss to Enigma6 on Day 1 of the CWL Pro League Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni was all over the map, both literally and figuratively. The tight coordination eUnited is usual known for was completely absent from Prestinni in this series. Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 4 Hardpoint Round 5 Search & Destroy were awkward rounds for Prestinni as he simply roamed around the map, sometimes ignoring spawns and rotations. The worst example was in Round 4 Hardpoint when Prestinni cycled from the Destroyed Building spawns to the Cathedral Hardpoint as the hill was about to expire. It was huge misplay that essentially gave up spawns and the point to Enigma6 for free. Prestinni closed Round 4 Hardpoint with a 23/39 KD.
Cracks in the end
May 8, 2017
Prestinni couldn't close out a strong weekend with a 72/93 KD in a loss to Luminosity Gaming on Day 3 of Group Yellow of the CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni took his foot of the gas in his last game of the weekend, taking a break from his usual strategy of flanking and cutting spawns. This was partly because Luminosity Gaming was hyper-focused on forcing teamfights out of eUnited. Normally, Prestinni found ways to prevent teamfights by cutting spawns, but the slaying powers of Luminosity Gaming made him hesitant to push out. Round 1 Hardpoint, Round 3 Uplink and Round 5 Search & Destroy saw him post some very weak KDs, even by eUnited standards. Without Prestinni cutting Luminosity Gaming's rotations, he struggled to slay out in teamfights. Prestinni closed Round 5 Search & Destroy with a limp 2/9 KD.
Last round heroics in reverse sweep win
May 7, 2017
Prestinni rose to the occasion in the final round to clinch a reverse sweep of Epsilon eSports to open Day 3 of Group Yellow of the Global Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Round 1 Hardpoint was a shellacking for eUnited. They got crushed, losing 250-81, and Prestinni had a team-worse 11/21 KD in the round -- it was a poor round, and that's it. His struggles continued into Round 2 Search & Destroy, a round where eUnited could not pull out a close battle, losing in 10 games. Even Round 3 Uplink, the round that saw eUnited wake up and take control of the game for the first time, saw Prestinni go 23/27, which was a team-low in kills, and score zero points -- he was better than he was before, but still struggled in relation to his teammates. Round 4 Hardpoint was his personal turning point -- he went 25/23, with over a minute on the hill, as eUnited cruised to a decisive Round 5 Search & Destroy. He was key to the easy round four win, and he was key to the Round 5 win as well. Though he never notched the final kill in any game that round, he was over double-digits in kills, and led his team to good situations on a consistent basis -- he put his team in the driver's seat, and his teammates took it home for the reverse sweep.
Cuts the spawns and cuts the win
May 6, 2017
Prestinni clutched rounds in a few kills with a 93/83 KD in a win against Millenium on Day 2 of Group Yellow of the CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni just knows where to find kills that will win maps. Round 1 Hardpoint on Scorch was an outstanding example of this as Prestinni practically won the round with just two kills. On rotation to Hangar from Turbine, Prestinni snapped two kills that spawned Millenium on the other side of the map. The kills gave eUnited two full Hardpoint rotations that utterly punished Millenium despite the Europeans' 100-point lead. Prestinni would also dominate Round 3 Uplink through pure slaying with a 31/20 KD. Then, again in Round 4 Hardpoint on Throwback, he clutched the game with two kills that gave his teams favorable spawns to take the hill by Baseball Fields. Prestinni closed Round 4 Hardpoint with a 26/26 KD and a 1:34 objective time.
Zooms across the map as the scout and slayer
May 6, 2017
Prestinni played a risky, but successful game with an 88/87 KD against Epsilon eSports on Day 2 of Group Yellow at the CWL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni embodies both the chaos and precision of eUnited's strategies with spawn-focused flanks and coordinated teamfights. The aggressive tactic gave eUnited control of respawn rounds such as Round 1 Hardpoint and Round 4 Hardpoint. Constantly, Prestinni pushed out to cut spawns or at least scout the enemies' position. Round 4 Hardpoint on Throwback saw Prestinni juggling both his flanks and his teamfighting abilities. On the last Barn Hardpoint, Prestinni pulled out a huge seven killstreak only to struggle pushing out onto Epsilon eSport's spawns. The close-quarters of the point made it difficult for Prestinni to stagger the spawns without running into a four stack. However, Prestinni was able to take control of the game with a great Bombardment and a Trinity Rocket Scorestreak on the last Bike Path Hardpoint. Prestinni closed Round 4 Hardpoint with a 31/34 KD.
A weak link in eUnited's performance against Luminosity Gaming
May 6, 2017
eUnited may have slumped slightly in the beginning against Luminosity Gaming during Day 1 of Group Yellow of the CWL Global Pro League, but Prestinni slumped most of all with an overall KD of 73/95, falling behind the rest of eUnited as they reverse swept Luminosity Gaming 3-2.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni just plain had a bad series against Luminosity Gaming, and while the rest of eUnited eventually rallied to reverse sweep their opponents, Prestinni just couldn't keep up. He started out disappointingly with the worst KD of his team at 16/26 during Round 1 Hardpoint. Round 2 Search & Destroy didn't go much better as Prestinni scored an abysmal 3/7 KD. Prestinni improved during Round 3 Uplink, but even then he went negative with a 25/29 KD. He'd get better still during Round 4 Hardpoint, with a 24/26 KD, but again it was negative. Finally, while the rest of his team was a wrecking crew during Round 5 Search & Destroy, he'd have the only negative KD with a 5/7.
Solid support in win
May 5, 2017
Prestinni was a solid support player as eUnited beat Millenium 3-1 on Day 1 of the Global Pro League's Group Yellow.
ANALYSIS
Prestinni was a solid support player in the win. That started right away in Round 1 Hardpoint, as he played better than his 21/25 KD showed -- he was a solid support member as eUnited cruised to an easy round win. Arcitys and Gunless handled most of the heavy lifting in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but Prestinni did plenty to support them, and the flew to a 6-1 round lead. Round 3 Uplink was a really rough round for eUnited -- they got crushed 15-4, and were never closer than 5-1. Prestinni went 17/26, with zero points -- it was an utterly forgettable round. He flew out of the gate in Round 4 Hardpoint, and carried his team to a 37-5 lead -- he kickstarted their offense and held it until the rest of his woke up and finished off the win.
