Luminosity Eliminates Red Reserve to Continue CWL Championship Lower Bracket Run

by Joe O'Brien


Luminosity continues their CWL Championship lower bracket run with a 3-1 win over Red Reserve.

Following a stunning 0-3 defeat at the hands of Elevate, Luminosity found themselves in the very first round of the lower bracket.


Even more surprisingly, meeting them there were tournament favorites Rise Nation. Luminosity pulled off a reverse sweep to stay alive, and followed it up with a 3-0 sweep to advance further.

In round three they met Red Reserve, another tournament favorite who had been sent to the lower bracket in the first round of what has been perhaps the least predictable CWL Championship to date. Red defeated compLexity and Ghost Gaming before meeting up with Luminosity.


Though neither would look out of place in a grand final, only one could advance to championship Sunday. Luminosity drew first blood with an incredibly narrow Hardpoint win, before some heroics from Johnathon ‘John’ Perez helped them claw back a 6-5 win on Sainte Marie du Mont Search and Destroy.

Red Reserve hit back with a 2-0 win on Flak Tower CTF, but weren’t able to force a fifth game. Hardpoint was once again nail-bitingly close, but once again Luminosity came up clutch, securing the map and series and eliminating Red from the tournament with a top-8 finish.
