Octane Sets Record For Worst SnD Performances In A Single Professional Series

Octane Sets Record For Worst SnD Performances In A Single Professional Series
Los Angeles Thieves

Los Angeles Thieves fans might want to look away now, although if you're Sam "Octane" Larew, we may advise looking a little closer at your screen, and maybe taking off the blindfold you had on against Atlanta FaZe.

With LA Thieves in need of some crucial CDL points to fend off the likes of New York Subliners and Minnesota ROKKR for a spot at the Vanguard World Championships, a fixture against table-toppers Atlanta FaZe became a must-win. 

Possibly looking towards Atlanta's Search and Destroy performances as a weakness, not all went to plan for the Thieves, as Octane dropped the worst recorded performances as back-to-back whitewashes came through.

Octane Drops 'Double Donuts' Against Atlanta FaZe 

If LA Thieves thought Search and Destroy would be easy pickings, they were massively mistaken. Instead, they forgot to turn Octane's monitor on, as the Human Turret failed to get a kill in either of the matchups on the round-based game mode. 

As FaZe ran riot with back-to-back 6-0 victories, the last of which proved decisive for the 3-2 win, Octane's kill-less record was the first time in CDL history in which a player didn't pick up a single elimination over two games in the same series. 

Previous "donuts", a term used for dropping zero (0) kills, included players such as Cuyler "Huke" Garland and even Seth "Scump" Abner, although nobody had ever dropped consecutive ones, leaving memes headed Octane's way about signing up for a Krispy Kreme job.

 

LA Thieves Loss Leads CDL Standings Poised For Climactic Finish

The loss for LA Thieves ultimately closed the gap in their lead for World Championships qualification. Despite retaining their 7th position in the overall standings, teams are quickly closing in on the 8th-place security net. 

Sat on 130 points, Thieves remain just five ahead of eighth-place Los Angeles Guerrillas and ten in front of joint-ninth-placed Minnesota ROKKR and Florida Mutineers. Even New York Subliners are quickly coming up from the rear in eleventh place, having won their opening two league play games, having finally settled on a winning formula. 

With ten points per win, LA Thieves could find themselves out of the qualification barrier by as early as next week as the league heats up for a climactic finish. 

If LA Thieves do intend to qualify for champs, Octane might need to scrub up on his Search and Destroy quickly, given that their respawn play looked admittedly sharp.
