NYSL have somehow managed to secure a miraculous win against OpTic Texas, sweeping the Greenwall 3-1.

The win breaks a nearly record-tying run from the Texas side. OpTic went into the match on the back of 11 straight series wins in Major qualifiers across the three Majors so far this season.

They fell one series short of tying the record, which is held by the Atlanta FaZe. They won 12 series straight in the middle of the Cold War season.

NYSL came out swinging throughout the whole series as they looked to bounce back from a loss against Toronto last week.

Ian “Crimsix” Porter managed to come out of the Berlin Hardpoint 28/18. He really showed how he has rebounded from the 18/42 that he registered against Toronto.

The series stayed on Berlin for map two, with the the Search and Destroy going both ways with swings of momentum each way.

Matt “KiSMET” Tinsley managed to get the crucial kills as the SnD boiled all the way down to a round 11.

Ant “Shotzzy” Cuevas-Castro earned himself just one single kill during map two, ending 1/10.

NYSL took the map to take a 2-0 lead. A lead that barely anyone would have predicted would be taken against the team that is undoubtedly the best in the game.

OpTic bounced back on Tuscan Control. They showed a glimpse of their quality in taking the map 3-1.

Crim showed that he really doesn’t like playing that exact map. It was the same as his “40-bomb” against Toronto and he struggled on it once again.

Hardpoint prowess

The Hardpoint game of NYSL was near perfect throughout the series and that was reflected as they took map four in dominant fashion.

Or as dominant as it gets when it’s against OpTic Texas. The teamwork of the side looks to have really improved in recent weeks and that’s part of the reason that they took the series in the way that they did.

OpTic looked to be right in the map towards the end. Texas came back into the map but the co-ordination of NYSL ended up being enough.

They move to 70 CDL points on the season. They stay in 11th in the standings but will be one step closer to making some progress.

A good showing in next week’s Major 3 will be enough to propel them right up the table as they look to squeeze their way into a playoff spot.
