Starts the OpTic domination
January 23, 2018
Crimsix turns on the "Crimbot" to melt Team Kaliber in a 3-1 series on Day 1 of Week 1 of the Stage 1 CWL Pro League.
Crimsix has proven that the nearly-invincible Team Kaliber can be beaten on LAN. Taking advantage of his significant lead in KD, Crimsix was fortunate enough to streak out to decimate Team Kaliber's typically lackluster slaying performance. But even then, Team Kaliber kept it close. Round 1 Hardpoint on Gibraltar showed this specifically in-action as Crimsix was able to steamroll the late-game thanks to a seven killsteak in the second Turret hill. Not only did it gain OpTic Gaming the lead, it also secured it thanks to Crimsix's Scorestreaks scored off of his hold.
Knocked out of top 8 with OpTic at CWL New Orleans
January 18, 2018
Amid indecisiveness and lack of team cohesion, Crimsix and OpTic Gaming failed to crack a top 8 spot at CWL New Orleans.
The transition back to boots-on-the-ground combat, one welcomed by Crimsix and his teammates, hasn't exactly been a smooth one. While they did make 3rd place at CWL Dallas, CWL New Orleans was an entirely different story, as OpTic got knocked out of the tournament in the 9/12th position via a 3-1 defeat at the hands of European upstarts Red Reserve. It's not entirely clear what caused OpTic Gaming's tournament run to fall short, but the team seems to be taking it in stride, with Crimsix even joking that the team would drop Scump. Expect OpTic to come out firing during Stage 1 next week.
Struggles in loss
January 13, 2018
Crimsix looked dazed and confused in OpTic Gaming's loss against Echo Fox in the Winners Bracket of CWL Orleans.
Despite starting off as the only one slaying in the opening Hardpoint round, Crimsix's play fell off a cliff in this series on Saturday. This wasn't all on Crimsix, however, as most of OpTic looked pretty off during most of this series. Echo Fox quite simply looked like the more cohesive unit, with Crimsix not doing much to prevent OpTic's fall into the Losers Bracket.
Paves a path of slaughter
December 11, 2017
Crimsix tries to burn a trail of fire only to be knocked out of CWL Dallas by Splyce in the losers' finals.
Crimsix is never one to take a fight laying down. Despite an awkward map ban phase that saw OpTic Gaming pick the same five maps and modes they played Splyce earlier that day, Crimsix never slowed down his tempo. He came out of the gate roaring in Round 1 Hardpoint, attempting to get early streaks and early advantages over Splyce. While he would obtain Scorestreaks, they found poor use on the map. Round 2 Search and Destroy saw Crimsix as the dominant player for OpTic Gaming, only to be outplayed by a manipulative Splyce using map cover against him. Finally, Crimsix would pivot to objective control in Round 3 Capture the Flag. His fast movement and hot hand on the SMG allowed him to get a flag capture at the end of the first half that kept his team firmly in the game.
Skills not enough to keep him in the game
December 11, 2017
Crimsix tried to slay out only to fall out of the Winner's Bracket and into the losers' bracket in a 0-3 sweep from Team Kaliber on Day 3 of CWL Dallas.
Nothing seemed to click for Crimsix this series. Despite using Team Kaliber's strengths against them, and even when using new strategies, Crimsix didn't receive the follow-up needed to make plays. More than that, Crimsix also struggled to post consistent numbers as Team Kaliber wore him down with stun grenades. While this allowed him to make some brilliant plays, such as clutching a 1-vs-3 in Game 4 of Round 2 Search and Destroy with a sniper, problems emerged late in the series. Crimsix came off as panicked as he attempted different attachments and weapons in Round 3 Capture the Flag. Versatility does often work, but instead, it put Crimsix in an awkward position of being out of tempo with this teammates.
Slow start in clutch win
December 10, 2017
Crimsix started off slowly, but had some great late moments in the 3-2 win over Splyce on Day 3 of CWL Dallas. The win put OpTic Gaming in the winner's bracket final.
Crimsix had a slow start to the match, as OpTic Gaming were utterly decimated in Round 1 Hardpoint. They lost 250-63, and -- as the score suggests -- were never in the match to begin with. It was a flawless performance by Splyce, and Crimsix could not do anything about it. Crimsix clutched a one vs. two to win game four of Round 2 Search & Destroy, helping guide OpTic Gaming to a round win. Round 3 Capture the Flag was similar to the first round, with Splyce dominating the flow of play, OpTic struggling to get anything going, and Crimsix not doing much. However, Crimsix was excellent down the stretch, with a hot start pacing OpTic Gaming in a Round 4 Hardpoint win, and a Fighter Pilot scorestreak tilting the map in their favor in a key ninth game of Round 5 Search & Destroy.
Excellent in easy win
December 10, 2017
Crimsix played extremely well in the 3-1 win over Red Reserve on Day 3 of CWL Dallas. The win put OpTic Gaming in the winner's bracket semifinals.
Crimsix was vital to the rather easy win for OpTic Gaming. The match actually got off to a bad start for the Green Wall, as they dropped the Round 1 Hardpoint in surprising fashion to Red Reserve. Crimsix was individually excellent, but the rest of OpTic Gaming struggled to string together a set of kills -- Red Reserve played very well and took the round. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw OpTic Gaming dominate, winning the first four games and coasting to a win. Crimsix went a perfect 6/0 through the first three games of the round and paced his team's dominance. Round 3 Capture the Flag saw him take a more reserved, defensive role, but it was vital to OpTic Gaming's success nonetheless. He found his rhythm again in Round 4 Hardpoint, pacing his team in both kills and objective time. Crimsix had 20 kills as OpTic passed the 200 mark, and led the team to an easy 250-113 victory that put the Green Wall into the winner's bracket semis.
Good respawn in win
December 9, 2017
Crimsix had great respawn rounds in the 3-1 win over Team EnVyUs during group play on Day 2 of CWL Dallas.
Crimsix started the match on fire, with a wonderful Round 1 Hardpoint performance. OpTic Gaming had a clear strategy of prioritizing the objective above all else and letting the rest fall into place. Crimsix took a little while to get into the match, but once he hit his stride he was off. He ended up with 30 kills in the round and was a force for OpTic. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw OpTic Gaming struggle to get on Team EnVyUs' level. For as good as they were in the first round, they struggled mightily in the second. Crimsix got back into his round one form in Round 3 Capture the Flag, with a complete performance that really got taken to the next level with an excellent second half. Scump was the true leader in Round 4 Hardpoint, but Crimsix played a valuable role behind him to secure the win.
Even his average is above average
August 19, 2017
Crimsix didn't have any standout moments during his match against Splyce on Day 4 of the 2017 CWL Championships, but even so, his fundamentals were on point and his skill apparent as he notched an overall KD of 84/80.
There was nothing too flashy about Crimsix's performance - it was just a straight up beatdown of his opponents from start to finish. He started things off in Round 1 Hardpoint with a 24/21 KD and 1:01 of Hardpoint control time. Crimsix faltered a little bit in Round 2 Search & Destroy, where he'd get a 6/7 KD as he and the rest of OpTic lost that round. Even as OpTic lost Round 3 Uplink, Crimsix still fulfilled his role as slayer, notching an impressive KD of 28/23, although it would have been even better if Crimsix tossed in or dunked the ball. Crimsix slipped up slightly again in Round 4 Hardpoint with a slightly negative 20/23, but OpTic went on to win that round anyway. The dramatic finish to OpTic's match against Splyce in Round 5 Search & Destroy was another day at the office for Crimsix, as he helped his team with a 6/6 KD, allowing OpTic to win the series in a 3-2 clutch fashion.
Flanks his way to a championship victory
August 14, 2017
Crimsix picks apart Team EnVyUs to win the 2017 CWL Championship Grand Finals, scoring a 70/65 KD in the first series and a 48/58 KD in the second series.
Crimsix had a surprisingly uncomplicated back-to-back Grand Finals victory as the tactics he used were the same ones he's used through out the tournament. This meant Crimsix stuck to his SMG and played for flanks to scout, tag and pick apart Team EnVyUs. After getting what he wanted, he'd make the call outs for his team to easily capitalize on. Crimsix had a much better first series than he did in the second series, at least in terms of his own personal slaying prowess. The first Round 4 Hardpoint on Scorch was absolutely dominated by Crimsix as he scored a 31/18 KD. The tight chokes allowed him to easily roam the map and punish spawns, while the open Hardpoints allowed his team to easily set-up a defense. He tore through Team EnVyUs, becoming a constant thorn in their side. In the second series, Crimsix got scrappier with his flanks, playing mainly to harass and distract Team EnVyUs rather than getting kills. This worked wonders in the second series Round 1 Hardpoint on Throwback, where he scored a 20/29 KD.
Ramps up in win
August 13, 2017
Crimsix got better as the sweep win over Luninosity Gaming went on. The match clinched OpTic Gaming's spot in the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship Grand Finals through the Losers Bracket on Day 5 of the tournament.
Crimsix had a nice Round 1 Hardpoint, but he shined brightest in Round 3 Uplink. Round 1 saw him go 18/17 with 1:29 on the objective. It was a nice support-based performance in a rather easy round win. OpTic cruised to a 250-107 win. They led the whole time, and set the tone for the match. Round 3 Uplink saw OpTic lead 5-2 at the half, and ended up winning 11-2. It was a dominating performance that got them into the Grand Finals. Crimsix only had two points, but he was a strong slayer going 25/21. He was tied for second on his team in kills. In between the two respawn rounds, he had the final kill in Game 3 in a comfortable 6-3 round win.
Grinds his rivals into dust
August 13, 2017
Crimsix obliterates with a 52/32 KD in a win against FaZe Clan on Day 4 of the CWL Championships.
Crimsix had an extremely breezy game thanks to everyone on OpTic Gaming running at 110 percent. Round 1 Hardpoint on Breakout saw Crimsix drop a 20/8 KD. With a fast and aggressive playstyle, him and Scump simply tore through FaZe Clan with their SMGs. There was absolutely nothing FaZe Clan could do to fight back since Crimsix got streaks as early as the first Graveyard hill. More impressive was Crimsix's improved map movement which was best seen in Round 3 Uplink. In the second half, Crimsix got a very scrappy dunk that put his team in the lead thanks to a decisive Overdrive.
Another stellar showing
August 11, 2017
Crimsix went 62/43 during OpTic Gaming's 3-0 win over Mindfreak Black in the Round of 16 at the 2-17 Call of Duty World Championships.
While FormaL and Scump lit up the scoreboard, Crimsix was right there behind them to pick up the slack. While he didn't have much help in terms of securing Hardpoints in the opening round, he still managed to put in enough kills to give FormaL space to take rotation after rotation. While he was fairly strong in the first couple rounds, he certainly conserved his energy to break out in the final round. With OpTic completely running roughshod in Round 3 Uplink, Crimsix actually managed to outslay FormaL with a 34/19 KD. That's no small feat given how well FormaL has been of late. It seems as though OpTic is surely peaking at the right time and looking to bring home that championship.
Trips in close win
August 10, 2017
Crimsix clumsily tripped Echo Fox's traps in a win in Group A on Day 2 of the CWL Championships
Crimsix's hunger for kills nearly cost them team their clean entry into the playoff brackets. The series was slightly worrying display with OpTic Gaming showing, once again, a weakness for Search & Destroy even after fixing their fault during Stage 2. This was perhaps because Crimsix is used to playing against aggressive teams and Echo Fox played far from aggressive. Instead, Echo Fox set up a stacked defense, letting OpTic Gaming run into their sights instead of the other way around. No where was this best seen than in Round 3 Uplink where Crimsix eagerly moved the drone, only for Echo Fox to score dunks behind Crimsix's aggressive positioning.
Solid showing in win
August 9, 2017
Crimsix had a good game in the sweep over Epsilon eSports on Day 1 of the 2017 Call of Duty World Championship.
Crimsix came out flying in this win, and paced his team in a 250-96 win. Crimsix went 27/11, with 1:14 on the objective. He was unstoppable in the round -- Epsilon had no answers for him. Round 2 Search & Destroy saw Crimsix defuse the bomb in Game 10, in what was a tense 11 game affair that OpTic Gaming would take. However, that second round proved to be the only close one, as OpTic Gaming cruised to a 11-2 win in Round 3 Uplink. Crimsix was not particularly strong in the slaying department (23/23), though that was due to FormaL notching a record-setting 43 kills in Precinct Uplink. He did add seven points in the blow out.
