OVERWATCH:

 

L, 0-2 vs. Central Florida

 

Map One - Ilios

  • Ilios is a control map.
  • UCF dominated in round one with the initial capture of the objective and were able to hold it to 100% by utilizing a very powerful pharah & mercy character combination.
  • Round two saw Florida Southern contest the first capture of the point but eventually reset as a team and and switch to offense.
  • The Gaming Knights were 30% short of finishing the round and map one when the Mocs started a teamfight that allowed them to capture the point. The Gaming Knights were able to regroup and take out the Mocs - recapturing the point and winning round two.
  • Ilios Final: 2-0 UCFGK

Map Two: Hollywood

  • Hollywood is a hybrid map.
  • On defense the Mocs were able to hold the first objective for three minutes before the Gaming Knights took the tempo of their first-objective win and snowballed through the payload checkpoints to complete their offensive round with their minutes remaining.
  • The Mocs on offense struggled to group up and push to win the first objective as the Gaming Knights pushed them back to their spawn point. With two minutes remaining, Florida Southern had a near-perfect teamfight allowing them to take the first objective and commence the escort portion of their offensive attempt. The Moccasins dominated their way to the second checkpoint scoring a second point but their slow start made it difficult to make it to the final checkpoint and finish the round.
  • UCFGK won the map 3-2, and the match 2-0.
