Division A action in the 2019 CWL Pro League resumed today—and we saw both winless teams fall to 0-4 on Monday.
Gen.G entered the day as one of two undefeated teams in Division A, while Luminosity were shockingly 0-3. But Luminosity opened the matchup with a strong 250-147 win on Frequency Hardpoint—everyone on Luminosity had a positive kill-death ratio and at least 22 kills.
Chance “Maux” Moncivaez helped Gen.G bounce back, though, with a 13-kill performance leading his squad to a 6-3 victory on Gridlock Search and Destroy to tie the series up at one map apiece.
Gen.G then jumped out to an early 2-0 advantage on map three, Frequency Control. But Luminosity mounted an impressive comeback, winning three-straight rounds to take the map and a 2-1 lead in the series.
Michael “SpaceLy” Schmale and crew refused to go down without a fight, however. Gen.G won Gridlock Hardpoint 250-168 to force a decisive game five. Luminosity controlled the start of Frequency Search and Destroy, though, thanks to an impressive one-vs-two clutch by Peirce “Gunless” Hillman.
After Luminosity jumped out to a 3-0 lead, Gen.G responded by winning six rounds in a row to secure the 3-2 series victory.
In the only other match on Monday, UYU took down Evil Geniuses 3-1. Despite a dominant 250-38 victory by EG on map one, Gridlock Hardpoint, UYU took three-straight maps to win their second match of the season.
