The Reverse Sweep team is back to review the action from Call of Duty League. Join Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt, Jonathan ‘Pacman’ Tucker & Katie Bedford as they discuss the biggest talking points from Stage 2 Week 2.
Covering the highs and lows of Stage 2’s midway point, Katie, Enable & Pacman hold nothing back in their Week 2 review!
In this week’s episode, the Reverse Sweep crew delve into plenty of juicy talking points… From OpTic Chicago’s slump to crowning Week 2’s most influential players, our trio have got your post-event CDL cravings covered.
After failing to pick up a single map against both Minnesota RØKKR and Florida Mutineers, the team delve into why they’ve flopped into such a slump.
S&D has been at the apex of the community’s criticism, but Pacman says that there’s a more severe issue at the root. “Something is going on where the comms are not clear, concise, and that’s unacceptable. That’s scary, because that’s hard to fix.”
RØKKR’s rookie hero
Eli ‘Standy’ Bentz rookie debut had everyone talking! But was there more to RØKKR’s gear shift than meets the eye?
Enable provides key insight into why Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner’s role shift was the real reason behind their success. “They moved Priestahh to the Flex [role], so that essentially slowed him down a little bit… Making their pacing on-par with one another.”
Shotzzy & iLLeY’s lost Cold War potential
Dallas Empire lost the Minnesota RØKKR for the second time this season. Despite sitting high in the standings, Enable argues that they’re not fulfilling Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal & Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro potential in Cold War’s 4-vs-4 format.
“You’re not getting the production that you did in Modern Warfare out of iLLeY and Shotzzy right now… I feel like there has to be a better way that they can use Shotzzy!”
LA Thieves’ slump
LA Thieves fell short to both London Royal Ravens & Atlanta FaZe… And given the devastating fashion of their Week 2 losses it’s clear that the squad still have a long way to go.
Pacman’s take? They need to change the roster’s core! “I’m not even sure Venom had a clear shot. I don’t know what his stats were, but I’m sure they weren’t great. But that’s not on him! He just came into a core that doesn’t work well together. They just don’t.”
The good, the bad & the ugly!
After a turning around their fortunes, both RØKKR and Royal Ravens’ Week 2 stars were crowned the Reverse Sweep MVPs! Both Enable & Pacman pick their moments of the week, with Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris’ brutal assassination of Venon making the cut!
The pair then pick their LVPs… With a certain outspoken member of the Greenwall taking the unwanted award! For the full Reverse Sweep review, check out the full video!
