Enigma6 Defeats the Reigning Champions
For several months, Counter Logic Gaming has been viewed by many as an unstoppable beast that simply couldn’t be tamed. The perfect combination of young talent and veteran leadership, CLG look to be a championship calibre team designed to last. Several teams in the Halo Pro League have struggled against this squad, but a young team by the name of Enigma6 may have just found CLG’s weakness.
In yesterday’s Pro League match, Enigma6 took on CLG in their eighth match of the season. After defeating EnVyUs in a very close series the night before, CLG came in knowing that E6 had the confidence they needed to break CLG’s streak. What was expected to be an entertaining match with several close games turned into a lopsided win in E6’s favor. With the only close match being Rig Slayer, the only game CLG won, E6 showed us last night that they have all the tools necessary to defeat this CLG team and challenge their crown.
This Enigma6 roster, consisting of Carlos “Cratos” Ayala, Cuyler “Huke” Garlad, Jesse “bubu dubu” Moeller and Ryan “Shooter” Sondhi, started off as a bit of an afterthought in the beginning of the season. With so much young talent and not enough veteran leadership and guidance, many were concerned that this team wouldn’t succeed due to rookie mistakes. Although this was the case in the beginning of the season, E6 has really gotten their act together and is now starting to look like a championship calibre team.
By having four solid slayers on their roster and no real support or objective player, E6 has a very strange roster that on paper doesn't look to be capable of doing the things that they have done against a team like CLG. The players on E6 are truly unique to be doing what they are doing and their talents should be able to take them a long way. Whether or not they can defeat CLG on LAN is a completely different subject that has yet to be seen, but this win should give E6 the necessary momentum boost they need to fight through the rest of the competition this season.
