gla1ve posted a solid 38/31 KD on Wednesday in a 2-0 series win over Team Dignitas in the Esports Championship Series Season 3.

gla1ve had a hot start in the first half of Nuke, leading to a quick 4-0 lead until Dignitas started to read gla1ve's strats to win four of their own to tie the game early. However, gla1ve commanded for seven rounds straight to close out the half up 11-4 for the defense. The second half, gla1ve couldn't penetrate the defense of Dignitas, who won ten rounds straight in the second half. gla1ve finally broke ground in Round 26 for the first win in the second half, and it led to a five-round winning streak to close Game 1 16-14, posting a 21/18 KD and an 85.5 ADR. gla1ve continued to surge on the defense in Game 2, taking a massive 12-3 lead at the half. gla1ve made some good calls on some late rotations that ended up in an Astralis win, not giving Dignitas any room for error. gla1ve struggled some in the beginning of the second half but managed to close out the Game 2 win 16-7, posting a 17/13 KD and an 89.2 ADR.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve posted a KD of 26/24 in Astralis' ECS Season 3 win over Team EnVyUs on Tuesday.

gla1ve had a great Game 1 on Inferno, dealing massive damage while picking up kills in a very lopsided Astralis first half. Heading into the second half with a 14-1 lead, there was little NV could do as Astralis steamrolled on to take a 16-1 win, thanks in part to gla1ve's 14/8 KD and whopping 115.2 ADR. In Game 2, gla1ve struggled to pick up kills on Train, relying on his teammates to carry him. The rest of Astralis, particularly Kjaerbye and dev1ce, had stellar showings, while gla1ve only mustered a 12/16 KD and team-low ADR of 56.2 as Astralis finished the 2-0 sweep with a 16-10 Game 2 win.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve put up an even 16/16 KD in Astralis' 16-12 loss to SK Gaming on Thursday at IEM Sydney.

gla1ve got off to a nice start here in the first half of this game, picking up a double in Round 3, but then became a bit inconsistent. Towards the end of the half, though, he was pretty strong. He got two kills to open up Round 10 and give his team a 6-4 lead, and then picked up an impressive 3k in Round 14. Moving into the second half, while Astralis started off pretty well, SK completely broke their economy in the later rounds. As such, gla1ve was unable to get into any sort of groove with his team, which eventually led to the 16-12 loss. Astralis are still looking for one more win to move on to the playoffs.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve put up a 20/11 KD in Astralis' big 16-5 win over The Chiefs on Tuesday.

gla1ve played a consistent game to open up the team's play at IEM Sydney on Wednesday. He started off with a nice double in Round 4 to get his team a 3-1 lead early on. He picked up another double in Round 9 before tallying just two kills in the final three rounds of the half that Astralis lost. He opened up the second half with a double in the pistol round to set his team on the path for victory in this 16-5 win to start off IEM Sydney on the right foot for Astralis.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve put up a 42/30 KD in Astralis' 2-0 over GODSENT on Tuesday in Season 3 of the ECS.

gla1ve started off the first half of Overpass nicely, going 14/11 while his team got out to a 10-5 lead. He was a bit more even in the second half, only tallying a 6/4 KD. Even with him not really stepping up in a big way, there wasn't much more that his team needed since they were executing extremely well as a unit. He was the second-best player in the lobby during the second game on Mirage. With Kjaerbye playing so well, gla1ve didn't even need to really pop off. He still performed very well with a 13/8 KD in the first half, though. While GODSENT made a bit of a run in the second half, gla1ve stepped in with a 9/7 KD to push his team to a 16-9 win.

April 20, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve posted a 38/36 KD on Tuesday in a series tie versus Ninjas in Pyjamas in the ESL Pro League Season 5.

A slow start giving up the first two rounds in the first half on Inferno didn't stop gla1ve from dominating in Game 1, earning a 22/17 KD and 83.5 ADR. gla1ve picked up a couple of kills and assists winning the eco round on the B-bombsite to cut the lead in half 2-1. NiP's defense was too strong in the gun round for gla1ve to counter, though he came up big in Round 5 after beating friberg in a 1-vs-1 on the B-bombsite for the ace to remain in the game. However, NiP's defense remained poised in the first half, holding off gla1ve for the 9-6 lead. The second half was all Astralis, as gla1ve contributed to the seven-round stance holding off NiP's offense as gla1ve led in kills for a 13-9 lead. Although NiP managed to rebel and steal three rounds, Astralis had enough of a lead to take the game 16-12. Game 2 gla1ve struggled on the defense as he faced a grueling 6-0 deficit, unable to capitalize on odd-man situations or individual trade kills. However, after a close Round 7 as Astralis won their first round in the half, gla1ve marched back into the game with a comeback to take the half 8-7. The offensive side of Astralis was no match for NiP's defense on Cache, as gla1ve struggled to open the bombsites to gain the advantage in the late game and close the series 16-12 in favor of NiP. gla1ve earned a 16/19 KD and 66.5 ADR during Game 2 on Cache.

April 9, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve posted a 46/58 KD in Astralis' 1-2 loss to FaZe Clan in the grand finals of the StarSeries Season 3 Finals.

gla1ve didn't do much to stop his team from getting knocked out of the grand finals here against FaZe Clan. He started off poor in Game 1 with a poor 16/18 KD despite his team picking up the win. His best moment came in the final round when he picked up a double to close out the map with a win. Moving on to Nuke in Game 2, he managed to sit at the top of his team, but he only put up a 16/17 KD, and had the lowest ADR in the lobby at 58.2. That game was a bit of an aberration from all of Astralis, though, as they were picked apart to the tune of a 16-6 loss. When things went to Inferno for the final game, he was once again off his team. He had just a 14/23 KD and a 47.4 ADR in an overtime loss. If he had just managed to turn around a couple of his gunfights, he could have helped his team secure a second straight grand finals win over FaZe Clan. But he didn't and they were taking down 19-17 in overtime.

April 5, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve put up a KD of 24/27 in Astralis' overtime loss to North on Day 2 of the StarSeries Season 3 Finals.

gla1ve wasn't the best player ever for his team in this tough loss, but he wasn't the worst either. He posted the second-highest ADR on his team, which showed that he was certainly doing his best, even if it ended up not being enough. He secured a double kill in a Round 11 win to stop his team from getting blown away in the first half. He got off to a nice start in the second half with a kill in the second pistol round and was actually leading his team in kills at a point in the second half. His double in Round 27 managed to keep his team alive in the later rounds of the game, but they ended up losing five of the last six rounds, including overtime, to drop the game 19-16.

April 4, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve posted a lackluster 15/19 KD in Astralis' win over CLG on Day 1 of the StarSeries Season 3 Finals.

gla1ve continued to be one of the weaker links for Astralis in this win over CLG. While he did have a nice anti-eco 3k, that was his lone shining moment in the game. He just never seems to contribute much to his team's success. Depsite the fact that they were able to win the game, they will certainly need a bit more from him going forward once they start meeting tougher competition.

March 19, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve earned a 30/35 KD in a 1-1 split versus North on Wednesday in the ESL Pro League Season 5.

gla1ve had a rough start as the in-game leader in Game 1 after a dismal offensive side down 11-4 at the half. gla1ve's defense was unable to generate any wins in the second half for a five-round blowout 16-4. gla1ve earned the team an 11/16 KD followed by a 56.5 ADR. However, gla1ve had a much better performance in Game 2 with a dominating first half 9-6. Despite this, the second half was leaning towards North as they seemed to be fueled by a late comeback. gla1ve then made an adjustment and pushed the offense to a 16-11 win. gla1ve lead the team with a 19/19 KD in Game 2.

March 1, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve posted a KD of 23/20 in Astralis' group stage win vs OpTic at IEM Katowice on Wednesday.

gla1ve had a good start to the game on Train, picking up a double kill in Round 1 to give Astralis an early lead in the first half on CT side. gla1ve simmered down considerably after that, picking up occasional frags in a chaotic and scrappy first half. Coming into the second half on T side, gla1ve stepped up considerably near the end, picking up a quadra kill in Round 25 to cement an Astralis winning streak in rounds. Finishing with a KD of 23/20, gla1ve eventually got his form together in a 16-12 Astralis win.

March 1, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve went 35/39 Wednesday during a 1-0 group stage win over NiP at IEM Katowice.

Astralis' in-game leader has been subpar at IEM Katowice so far. After finishing with a 16/25 KD in a win over OpTic in their first match, gla1ve was a little overzealous against NiP, perhaps trying to redeem himself. He was reckless when Astralis needed more patience, and passive when Astralis needed aggression.

January 29, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve went 56/61 in Astralis' big win against Virtus.pro in the grand finals of the ELEAGUE Major.

Despite a bit of a slow start, gla1ve showed up in a big way during Round 8 of Game 1 where he grabbed a 3k to secure the round for Astralis. Not content to let dev1ce have all the fun with flanks, gla1ve positioned well outside by the Silos to get a double entry frag in Round 12 that tied it at six. They continued to keep things even all the way to a 12-12 tie before losing a step and dropping the map 12-16. gla1ve didn't get a kill in Game 2 on someone other than a teammate until Round 6, which showed the kind of early game he had on this second map. He did get a double in that round though, demonstrating some nice accuracy on the rifle. As the game progressed, things started to look a bit grim for the Danes. They allowed VP to battle back and take a 14-13 lead. gla1ve and Astralis banded together to win three straight rounds and take the map to force a Game 3. He didn't tally a kill until Round 7, which goes to show how bad of a start Astralis had to this final game. There just seemed to be nothing that the Danes could do to stop VP early on in the first half of this game. In the first few rounds of the second half, gla1ve once again showed up with some key kills to bring his team to with four rounds of VP at 9-13. His calls towards the end of this game were nothing short of legendary. Astralis never gave up at any point. The Danes got aggressive towards the end, and it paid off with their first major title. When it was all said and done, Astralis won on the back of a 16-7 run in the final game to take the title.

January 28, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve went 35/37 in Astralis' 2-0 win over Fnatic in the semifinals of the ELEAGUE Major.

gla1ve was the slowest member of Astralis in the first few rounds of the first game on Cache. He only had one kill after five rounds, but his double in Round 6 was just what his team needed to lock up the win. He added in a few more kills in the first half to finish up at a 9-6 scoreline. In the second pistol round, he and durpreeh locked down the round with an early double entry to take a 10-6 lead. He was extremely close to clutching a 1-vs-2 in Round 23, but came up one kill short, which allowed Fnatic to get its 10th win of the game. From then on, Fnatic just inched their way back into things and forced overtime. He'd only pick up one kill in the overtime period, but it was enough to lock up the win. Despite his team getting off to a 3-0 start in Game 2, gla1ve only had one kill after those four rounds. He ended with the lowest kills of his team, but with everyone playing at the top of their game, they still locked up the easy win.

January 24, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve earned a 27/9 KD during a best-of-one win over G2 in the ELEAGUE Major group stages on Tuesday.

This was arguably gla1ve's most impressive performance as an Astralis member. The in-game leader, not usually known for his fragging unless he's on Train, had an out-of-body experience on his favored map. He popped off early with a quad kill when G2 perfectly lined up for him in Round 6, and his Round 9 lurk, patient and coldhearted, won Astralis a 2-vs-4 and stunned G2. gla1ve capped off his brilliant first half with a 1-vs-2 clutch on shox and RpK in Round 12, and carried his impeccable timing and sharp aim into the brief second half.

December 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve ended with a solid 31/26 in Astralis' win over SK 2-0 in the semifinals of the ECS Season 2 Finals.

gla1ve started on the defensive on Cache with a great start as he secured the first pistol round with a single kill. He then came up huge for Astralis in the sixth round with a massive quad kill hold on the B-bombsite to secure the round. In the second half of Map 1, gla1ve won three rounds with bomb plants as well as two or more kills to give Astralis a 16-9 Cache win. The teams were on Overpass for Map 2, and gla1ve repeated another first pistol round win with a single kill to secure the round for Astralis. He then secured the seventh round with a bomb plant and a double kill to extend the lead 6-1. He then planted the bomb in the next two rounds to solidify the economy for the Danes, earning an 11-4 lead going into the second half. gla1ve contributed to a round win in the 5-0 blowout in the second half for a 16-4 win over SK.

December 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve posted a KD of 31/28 in Astralis' grand finals win against OpTic in ECS Season 2.

gla1ve had a decent start to the series on Overpass, winning a 1-vs-3 clutch in Round 8 to help Astralis take a massive 14-1 lead into the second half. Fragging well and shutting down OpTic's plays with consistent ease, gla1ve finished the 16-6 stomp with a KD of 16/11, along with a fantastic 100.2 ADR. gla1ve struggled in the early stages of Game 2 on Train, often dying early in rounds while missing shots. gla1ve would redeem himself with a 3k in Round 26 to bring the score to 15-11 and set Astralis up to take the tournament, but his KD of 15/17 and ADR of just 68.2 still stuck out like a sore thumb. Despite his shortcomings, Astralis took Game 2 16-11, winning ECS Season 2 in convincing fashion.

December 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve earned a KD of 22/10 in Astralis' win over FaZe in the Group A Winner's match at the ECS Season 2 Finals.

gla1ve had a strong start to the game, picking up a 3k in Round 3 to help give Astralis a commanding early lead. Dominating Dust 2 throughout the first half with 3k's in Rounds 7 and 15, gla1ve found great success in his aim duels, posting a strong ADR of 97.2 as Astralis went into the second half with a 12-3 lead. A few rounds later, Astralis had finished their 16-3 beatdown of FaZe, with gla1ve earning a KD of 22/10 in the rout.

December 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve ended Astralis' win over OpTic Gaming in Group A of the ECS Season 2 Finals with a 19/17 KD.

gla1ve finally joined the game in Round 5 of this game after a bit of a slow start. He used an AK in that round to get a big 3k that helped them stall long enough to get their first round win. After that he didn't really add in very many kills for quite some time. His next round with more than one kill wasn't until Round 15 when he put up another 3k. But from then on, the floodgates seemed to open up a bit. gla1ve put up doubles in Rounds 18, 19, 20, 21 and 23. His major contributions late in the second half were a big reason why Astralis were able to overcome OpTic and get his big win to start their run in the ECS finals.

December 4, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve only managed a poor 33/61 KD in Astralis' tough 1-2 loss to OpTic Gaming in the grand finals of ELEAGUE Season 2.

gla1ve stuck out like a sore thumb in this close loss to OpTic in the grand finals. He was constantly in the basement both in terms of KD and kills. He never managed to secure many multi-kills and was mainly just good for a kill here and there. His worst performance was in Game 2 on Cobblestone where he was a poor 7/19. That would have certainly been the worst performance on the map had Xyp9x not gone an even worse 3/20 in the game. This was just an overall bad series from gla1ve and he will certainly need to turn things around in the future if Astralis hopes to make any strides.

December 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve put up a 34/38 KD in Astralis' sweep of SK in the semifinals of the ELEAGUE Season 2 playoffs.

gla1ve was nowhere to be found in the first few rounds of Game 1 against SK here. He had zero kills in the first five rounds. Once he showed up to the party, he did so with a bang. His 3k on the AK-47 in Round 6 was enough to get Astralis on the path to their first victory of the map. Throughout the other 14 rounds of the half, though, he only managed four more kills. He came on a bit better in the second half with 10 kills, which were enough to keep Astralis rolling in the 16-11 win. gla1ve was a little bit better to start off Game 2 on Train, as he picked up a 3k and clutch bomb plant in both of the first two rounds, which started Astralis off nicely. They continued to push incredibly hard in the first half to take a 12-3 lead into the break. While SK started to make a bit of a comeback in the second half, gla1ve added in a few kills and bomb plants in key moments to take the map 16-12.

December 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve went 46/48 Wednesday in a 2-1 ELEAGUE Quarterfinal victory over Ninjas in Pajamas.

Since replacing former in-game leader karrigan with gla1ve, Astralis has looked energized. Not only has gla1ve's tactical and strategical style meshed with his new team's, but his fragging has looked lethal too. That wasn't the case on Wednesday. gla1ve looked absolutely shell shocked against a team coming off a huge win over SK at IEM Oakland. Chalk it up to lack of preparation or just a bad day at the office, but the fact remains that gla1ve bottom-fragged on both of the first two maps. Astralis dominated the second map, Train, and gla1ve had a much better time fragging when his team had all the advantages, but still contributed less than the rest of his teammates. Before fans start calling for his head, however, they should know that gla1ve was instrumental on the third map, Overpass. His 1-vs-2 clutch in Round 9 defended the B site, and single-handedly prevented Astralis' economy from slipping into dangerous territory. He had a big first half with 15 kills, and finished with 21/15 on the map, with a healthy 87.8 ADR. Nice way to rebound from a poor start.

November 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve posted an even 35/35 during Astralis' 0-2 loss to SK Gaming in the semifinals of IEM Oakland.

gla1ve and his team took a bit to get going on Train in Game 1, but once they did, they did some major damage. They lost five straight to start the game, but then he racked up eight kills in the next five rounds to help tie things up. He earned another quad kill in Round 12 to keep Astralis rolling. Despite all the good he did to get Astralis a 14-9 lead, he didn't come through when his team needed him, as he only picked up one kill in the next seven rounds that SK won to take the map. gla1ve didn't do anything flashy to start Game 2 on Mirage, but his play was enough to get the team's first round win in Round 5. He just hid in the corner to find his moment and finally did just that with the final kill to take the round. gla1ve really fell off early in the second half, but recovered a bit. His big 3k in Round 24 brought Astralis within three rounds of SK. Astralis just couldn't hold on, though, as SK banded together and took the big 16-12 win.

November 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve went 14/17 in Astralis' loss at the hands of G2 in Group A of IEM Oakland on Wednesday.

gla1ve had no kills in first three rounds here on Nuke against G2. He picked up a 3k in that round, but he and dev1ce didn't pick up the kills until it was too late to get the defuse. He showed some poor aim in Round 7 when he spotted two members of G2 first, but couldn't kill either before he was killed. Those plays didn't make that much of a difference in the first half that saw Astralis have a pretty nice road to a 9-6 lead. In the second half, though, all of Astralis seemed to crumble. gla1ve could never really contribute much to the team in this 16-12 loss to G2.

November 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve only tallied an 11/14 KD in Astralis' win over Na'Vi in Group A of IEM Oakland on Wednesday.

gla1ve certainly got off to a start here against Na'Vi on Train. His double kill in the pistol round helped Astralis start the early roll that they got on, but then he kind of fell off after that. He ended up posting the only negative KD on his team during the win. He did have some nice moments, such as his rotation in Round 17 that helped lock down the map and secure a win, but they just didn't come very often. Still, Astralis was able to overcome this and get the fairly easy win.

November 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve posted a 16/8 KD in a 1-0 win over Team Liquid on Wednesday.

gla1ve continues to shine as Astralis' newest member. His in-game leadership style meshes perfectly with the rest of his team, and he read Team Liquid like a book in this IEM Oakland match. In Round 9, gla1ve correctly predicted Team Liquid would slow-push into Pop Dog, so Astralis camped two members in Ladder Room, patiently waiting to pounce on their prey. gla1ve's strategic contributions have been impressive, but it would be negligent to ignore his skirmishing ability too. His Round 6 1-vs-3 clutch, leading to a last-tick bomb defuse, was picturesque. Astralis has to be feeling lucky to have the rare IGL that is an equally effective playmaker; not many teams share the luxury.

November 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve finished Astralis' win over SK in the Group C winner's match of ELEAGUE Season 2 with a 22/24 KD.

Since taking over the in-game leader role just days prior to ELEAGUE, gla1ve found his groove in the second half of a big win over SK. He had a rather slow start to the best-of-one series on Overpass with a 9-6 deficit at half. However, his second half calling turned things around for Astralis as he lead eight straight rounds won against SK to take the lead 9-14. He contributed with support as he was able to plant multiple rounds as well as providing his team with trade-kill advantages. His efforts rallied Astralis to take the win over SK 16-13.

November 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve finished with a 19/9 KD in a 1-0 win over ALTERNATE aTTaX on Friday in the ELEAGUE Season 2 Group C.

gla1ve looks like Astralis' missing piece. Granted, it was against ALTERNATE, not exactly a top tier team in ELEAGUE brackets, but gla1ve looks like a seamless fit so far. His kill differential was a healthy plus-10, and his in-game leadership was as impressive as his fragging. In Round 4, he followed up a clean flash with an entry kill onto tiziaN to earn entry into the A-bombsite, and through seven rounds, gla1ve was deathless with $15,000 in the bank. His confidence was sky-high against ALTERNATE, and he even converted a jump-peek in Round 10 onto kzy.

October 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve will be the permanent starter for Astralis moving forward, the player announced in a Facebook post Monday.

Astralis has went through a tumultuous few weeks after the team announced they would bench their in-game leader, karrigan. While Astralis did use notaN as a fill-in option, the trial period didn't go exactly as planned, as the youngster failed to make waves during the four games he played in the ESL Pro League. That prompted the move to bring back gla1ve, who was one two fill-ins Astralis used in their surprising run during the Cologne Major. The new unit will have a bit of time to prepare for their next matchup, which takes place November 11 with the start of the group stages of ELEAGUE Season 2.

September 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

gla1ve was the top fragger on Heroic in their 2-1 loss against Team EnVyUs in the decider match of Group A at DreamHack Bucharest, finishing with a 54/59 KD.

gla1ve used his M4A1 to start off this series against EnVyUs and was incredibly accurate with it early on. He actually went into a double AWP setup with Friis towards the end of the half, and he picked up a couple kills with it. He ended up leaving a bit to be desired as the game went on. He was sitting pretty at the very bottom of the frag chart for his team by the time this game was all said and done. He continued to be largely average at the beginning of second game on Nuke. He ended up being one of the top fraggers of his team in this game, though. His AK sprays were on point to secure some entry frags that helped Heroic bring this one back to five rounds apiece. He was quiet for most of the game, but came up big with a clutch 1-vs-1 against kennyS that gave them a 13-12 lead. gla1ve snagged a nice 3k in Round 4 with his M4A1 that gave Heroic its first win of the map. He ended the half with a 6/13 KD and was he third best player on his team; that's just kind of game this was for Heroic early on. He was the first player on Heroic to hit double-digit kills, and it didn't happen until Round 18. Accordingly, they lost the final game 16-9.

gla1ve secured a 15/20 KD in Heroic's loss to Virtus.pro in the Group A winner's match at DreamHack Bucharest.

gla1ve was the best member of Heroic to start this winner's match against Virtus.pro. He had three kills in the first three rounds that saw Heroic go down 0-3. He was on top of the charts for Heroic almost from start to finish in this game. He consistently would pick up kills here and there to give his team a shot in this game. Unfortunately, none of his team really stepped up in the game, which put them at a huge disadvantage and led to this loss.

gla1ve ended Heroic's win over Team EnVyUs in the initial match of Group A at DreamHack Bucharest with a 43/50 KD.

gla1ve snagged himself a double kill in the opening pistol round of this game on Mirage, which helped give Heroic an early 1-0 lead. He went with the UMP in a couple of the opening rounds and got a double with it in Round 6. He was one of the more lackluster members of Heroic as the game drew on, though. This was especially costly in the OT rounds, where Heroic just needed a couple small boosts to take the rounds and finish things off. He lost what should have been a fairly easy 1-vs-1 in the opening round of the fourth OT. It was those miscues that ended up allowing this game to drag on to a sixth OT.

gla1ve earned a 23/46 KD in Team X's back-to-back losses to Virtus.pro on Tuesday.

gla1ve was the member of Team X to show up the least against Virtus.pro to open up Week 2 of the ESL Pro League. He didn't manage to record a single kill in the first six rounds of the game. After securing that kill, he was able to do a bit of damage here and there, but still couldn't do much to help Team X avoid the 16-12 loss on Train. Game 2 was an even worse story. He might as well have been completely invisible in this game. He put up an abysmal 9/23 KD and had only a 0.38 HLTV.org rating in the game. While he did manage to post a 5/2 KD on entry frags, that was not nearly enough to overcome his extreme deficits in every other area of the game. Team X will certainly need much more from gla1ve if they wish to make any headway here in the ESL Pro League.
