The Year of The Duck: The Rise, Fall and New Flight of Erland "NukeDuck" Holm

The EULCS and the European region has always been known for the strength of its Mid Laners. With players such as Rammus “Caps” Winther of Fnatic, Lukaz “Perkz” Perkovic of G2 and Chres “Sencux” Laursen of Misfits, there is once again an array of talent that has come to the forefront on the Rift. However, there’s a statement that analyst Martin “Defico” Lynge keeps making about Erlend “Nukeduck” Holm that’s starting to get harder and harder to refute when you look at his form this split. The Year of The Duck is upon us and it’s been a wild ride to get here!

Jun-Young "Profit" Park - The Forgotten Carry

With only two more weekends of Overwatch league matches left until the end of the inaugural season, we're at the point where it will not only come down to how the teams play as a collective. But those special individual moments of brilliance that would have us go from the edge of our seats, to jumping up and down like madmen. One of the players in the league with this ability is Jun-Young "Profit" Park, the most underrated player on the Spitfire and in the Overwatch League.

An Interview with Chan-Hyung "Fissure" Baek On The Slasher Report

The Overwatch League playoffs are here and when the London Spitfire and Los Angeles Gladiators started their playoff series against each other on Wednesday 11th July, there was one noticeable omission from the Gladiator line up and that one player was their star Main Tank and MVP runner up Chan-Hyung “Fissure” Baek. Prior to this game, journalist Rod “Slasher” Breslau released information that the reason Fissure wasn’t playing was due to him wanting to leave the LA Gladiators as he wasn’t happy with being on an international team but also that he refused to communicate during a scrim as he wanted more effort from his teammates.

Cloud9 & Will “Meteos” Hartman, The Perfect Re-coupling!

On Sunday night, after all of week three’s games had been played and with 100 Theives going 2-0 for the week and joint top for the split with a 4-2 record, news dropped they had traded starting Jungler Will "Meteos" Hartman to Flyquest for their Academy Jungler Andy “Anda” Haoung. To add insult to injury for Meteos, he’s been informed by Flyquest that they intend to continue with their starting  Jungler Lucas "Santorin" Tao Kilmer Larsen, leaving him to play in the Academy team. With Meteos rightfully not wanting to drop down a skill level after his performances in season 8, should it be time for Cloud9 to bring him for a third time during the Rift Rivals International break?
