Luminosity Gaming’s AR Slayer Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman got a lot of flak for taking the weekend off of CoD scrims to attend EDC 2019, but Team Envy’s Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price couldn’t believe his eyes after noticing that was the least of LG’s problems.
LG hasn’t had the best 2019 season so far, and with the CWL Pro League is in its eighth week of competition having gone 0-3 in their last group of matches.
In a tweet, Call of Duty legend ACHES pulled up the stats from LG’s loss against Reciprocity. While it seemed like he was going to be yet another person to take a dig at Gunless for going to EDC instead of scrimming, the numbers on the stat sheet quickly changed the narrative.
ACHES’s tweet seemed reminiscent of all the CoD fans and figures who were trash talking Gunless for going to the weekend music festival, but his team’s performance in their last outing suggested there was a larger problem for the Canadian org
“Gunless showed up to Columbus today after being gone the whole weekend at EDC and didn’t even scrim today,” ACHES said. “Wow what an embaras......nvm.”
The statline seemed to show Gunless as well as teammate and former World Champion MVP Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper as the only talking points among team.
Luminosity’s performance seemed to baffle people on the social platform too, with notable figures in the scene wondering what could be the root cause for the team’s lackluster performance.
“I don't even know how this is possible,” eUnited’s Tristan "Spoof" Green said. “They gotta hate each other or something.”
Even though LG has some star power behind their rifles, the team has yet to consistently impress in the Pro League with a 5-10 overall record and having only won two maps in their last four games.
While the team was able to put on an inspiring run at CWL Forth Worth to get the top honors in the event, they followed it up with a much more lackluster performance at the recent CWL London tournament.
LG can still turn their Pro League season around to end on a positive record with seven games left in their schedule, but it will be a very tall ask for them to make it into the Playoffs via a top-four in Division A.
LG's next match is against the lowly UYU on May 21 at 4:30 PM PT / 7:30 PM ET.
