eUnited player James “Clayster” Eubanks launched fierce criticizm towards compLexity Gaming players Ricky “Ricky” Stacy and Rasim “Blazt” Ogresevic following their match in the CWL Pro League.
CompLexity won the match in a game five round eleven, a defeat that very clearly hit the eUnited hard, judging by their reactions both on stage and following on social media.
eUnited did bounce back convincingly in the final match of the night, as they handed OpTic Gaming their first loss in Division B with a 3-1 win.
But Clayster seemed to still have an issue with the compLexity roster, and Ricky in particular, after he used long barrel during on the BAR assault rifle for a map in their series.
Long barrel is an attachment which pro players have agreed not to use on the BAR, as the extended damage range it provides is deemed unbalanced.
Ricky claims he accidentally put it on his class before the hardpoint map in question, but Clayster doesn’t buy it.
Clayster also brings up that he used the M1 (a restricted weapon) against the team at a previous event, and because he felt bad gave them his winnings from the event.
He claims that Ricky and coL were trying to ‘get revenge’ over Clayster for his previous use of the M1.
Felt insanely bad about using an M1 at Atlanta and even gave them my entire earnings, yet Ricky is able to get “revenge” on me with a LB BAR. Every series vs coL is gonna be everything goes from now on.

Both Ricky and Blazt responded, explaining it was an error and did not effect the outcome of the match – Clayster remained unconvinced.
Clayster previously received criticizm from fans and fellow players after his use of the M1, which was subject to a gentleman’s agreement at the time, similar to the long barrel now.
However, it is debatable how much Ricky’s use of long barrel really affected the outcome of the match, considering his performance on the map individually was not great, while coL won comfortably.
