Who should you trust to win their 1v1’s? Who will keep their nerve in the 1v2 – or even 1v3? Statistics show who the most ‘clutch’ players are in SnD so far in the 2018 CoD: WWII season.

Clutching up rounds in Search and Destroy is the sign of a composed (and maybe lucky) pro player, and can mean the difference between walking home with a championship trophy or empty handed.

And some players in competitive Call of Duty history are best known for their clutch plays – names like Damon “Karma” Barlow, Marcus “MBoZe” Blanks and Matt “Nadeshot” Haag have their most memorably plays in big SnD clutches.

With the return to boots on the ground for CoD: WWII, the classic SnD clutch is back and winning 1v1’s, 1v2’s and 1v3’s takes skill, composure, game knowledge and of course a helping of luck.

Fans who have been keeping up with the action will no doubt remember FaZe Clan’s Dillon “Attach” Price clutching a 1v3 vs OpTic Gaming in the Stage One playoffs grand final, or Team Kaliber’s Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi’s recent clutch vs Team Envy in Stage Two.

But the names at the top of list (of CWL Pro League players) for the highest 1v1, 1v2 and 1v3 by winning percentages may come as a surprise to some.

For 1v1’s, it is Red Reserve’s Joseph “Joee” Pinnington who comes in at the top spot, winning an incredible 76% of his head-to-head plays. He is followed closely by Mindreak’s Denholm “Denz” Taylor, at 71%.

For 1v2’s, it is eUnited’s Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson taking the top spot, winning almost half of his clutch attempts when the last alive and up against two, at 44%.

Joee also comes in at 2nd here, with another very impressive percentage, winning 7 out of his 18 1v2’s, or 39%.

And finally, Accuracy’s recent 1v3 vs Team Envy secures him the top spot for 1v3 clutches, winning four times after being left in a 1v3 sixteen times in total.

eUnited’s James “Clayster” Eubanks has also won four, but out of twenty-four attempts, meaning he comes in at 2nd on this list.

Denz also makes another appearance, having won three 1v3’s, so there is no doubt Denz has a shout for being up there as one of the most clutch players.

Joee’s 1st place for 1v1’s and runner up for 1v2’s might be enough to secure him the ‘most clutch player’ title, but he doesn’t make the top five for 1v3’s.

Accuracy has a very impressive 1v3 record, as well as a stellar 64% 1v1 win record, so he too could be in with a shout.

Denz certainly is in the conversation, while Echo Fox’s Ulysses “AquA” Silva also makes the top five for 1v2’s and 1v3’s.

Renegades announce new CoD roster ahead of second Challengers season

Esports organisation Renegades have revealed their Call of Duty roster for the second season of the CDL’s Challengers Series, including players from last year’s Paris Legion roster. 

The switch from the Call of Duty World League to the Call of Duty League represents the greatest shake-up competitive CoD has ever seen. While latter tournaments in the CWL involved an amateur tournament running parallel to the main one, the introduction of Challengers’ Series gives a greater formalisation to competition below the best of the best.

With franchised spots in the CDL costing millions, it’s no surprise that some big name esports organisations have found themselves competing in the Challengers Series. One of these orgs is Renegades, the Detroit-based esports team that has come in and out of competitive CoD in recent years.

Renegades have come and gone from the Call of Duty pro scene in the past.

On October 31, they announced their CoD roster for the upcoming Black Ops Cold War season, which will be the second season of the CDL and its accompanying Challenger Series.

Perhaps the biggest name in the new roster is Luke ‘Louqa’ Rigas, who represented Paris Legion in the CDL last year. It was an up-and-down year for the Paris Legion, who managed a second place finish at the online CDL Week 12 London event.

He is also joined by ex-Paris teammate Conrad ‘Shockz’ Rymarek, who is best known for his five years with Australian organisation Mindfreak from 2014 to 2019.

Rounding off the roster are Lincoln ‘Fighta’ Ferguson and Amer ‘Pred’ Zulbeari, making a fully Australian roster. The nationalities of all players means they will likely compete in the APAC region of the Challengers Series.

While Shockz and Louqa come off the back of mixed fortunes in the CDL, Fighta and Pred both joined Renegades in January of 2020. In the somewhat weaker field of APAC competition, their Renegades roster dominated the region’s Challenger tournaments during the Modern Warfare season.

Replacing half the team with CDL standard pros means it’s likely we’ll see similar domination this year, barring any shock performances from the other APAC teams.
