Millennium might have slipped up slightly as a team against Zealous eSports at CWL Birmingham Day 2, but Nolson still performed his role as an objective player well enough, scoring a 56/62 KD in the process, to help Millennium get the 3-1 series win.

Nolson wasn't exactly a slaying machine most of the time in Millennium's game against Zealous, but he still managed to play his role as an the main objective man. During the first Hardpoint map, he managed to get more control time than any other teammate at just shy of two minutes, while scoring a KD of 20/19. Search & Destroy was Millennium's weakest map overall this series, and Nolson felt the pressure, only notching a 6/7 KD. However, Nolson's performance picked back up during Uplink, where he registered a 32/19 KD and put a point on the board. Nolson would finally close out the series with the rest of Millennium in the second Hardpoint game with a KD of 18/17 and once again gaining more control time than the rest of his team.

Nolson was a fairly even defense in a tight loss against Fnatic at the CWL Birmingham quarterfinals.

Nolson held his team's lines and spawns well outside of a few key mistakes in Round 3 Uplink and Round 1 Hardpoint. Round 1 Hardpoint was lost by mere seconds partly thanks to Nolson whiffing an Active Camo Payload. In trying to jump into the Hardpoint, Nolson pre-fired the wrong corner and was quickly beamed down by wuskin. Nolson dropping caused his team to have staggered spawns in the final seconds. Round 3 Uplink was a similar story. For most of it, Nolson held his own but he became overly aggressive in the second half. This culminated in overtime when Nolson rushed ball spawn, but left the goal wide open for Fnatic to get a quick 20-second throw.

Nolson was far from great as Millenium fell to eUnited 3-2 on Friday at CWL Dallas.

Nolson had a poor showing in the match, at a time where MarkyB and Moose needed the help. He ended up with a seemingly solid 20/21 in Round 1 Hardpoint, but most of it came late; he was poor for the majority of the match. He had the final kill to win Round 2 Search & Destroy, but was quiet outside of that. He actually had a nice Round 3 Uplink, going 25/21 and providing solid defense, but that fell apart with back to back poor showings in Round 4 Hardpoint and Round 5 Search & Destroy as Millenium lost to eUnited.

Nolson found his momentum late in a win against Supremacy on Day 1 of CWL Paris

Nolson snowballed early in Round 4 Hardpoint on Throwback thanks to a big seven-kill streak at the Barn Hardpoint. For most of the round, Nolson was trading well against Supremacy, despite not racking up time on the Hardpoint. Supremacy were deliberate in their challenges, just trying to soak time from Team Infused. It only worked for a bit, as for most the game they were feeding kills to Nolson. Cleverly, he saved his streaks until the last set of rotations, where he could use them to clutch out, except Nolson's Scorestreak use was a mixed bag. He used his Trinity Rockets early onto the last Barn Hardpoint where the cover of the Barn burned the Trinity Rockets. But, on the last Bike Path Hardpoint, Nolson's Bombardment was able to clear the lane and point for his team.

Nolson had a nice objective game early, but not much else as Team Infused were swept by Luminosity Gaming. They were eliminated from MLG Atlanta on championship Sunday.

Nolson did not have an impressive day outside of his objective time in Round 1 Hardpoint. He had 1:40 on the hill -- the only member of his team above 40 seconds. It was a poor showing from Infused, but Nolson was the lone bright spot in the round. He had a poor Round 2 Search & Destroy, as did the rest of his teammates. It was a hard round for Infused overall. This continued into Round 3 Uplink, as Infused could not build off of an early MarkyB throw-in, and got eliminated in frustrating fashion.

Nolson was forced into awkward roles with a 53/51 KD in loss against Splyce on Day 4 of MLG London

Nolson had to carry his team and he just couldn't do it. It was a tough position for Nolson to be in since he's usually support. Normally, Nolson is stacking with the carries, this time the carries stacked with him. The change was stark and noticeable in Team Infused's gameplay. For example, in Round 1 Hardpoint, Nolson and Infused were slow to hit the Hardpoints in the beginning. They were okay with either getting scrap time of early rotation time. Eventually, Nolson found himself getting a six killstreak during a pinch with his team. The team started to group around Nolson, relying on his Scorestreaks to hit the points. This did find success since Nolson's streaks helped tie the score but the momentum couldn't be sustained. Splyce won important teamfights in the final moments of the round. Nolson ended Round 1 Hardpoint with a 27/23 KD.

Nolson was iffy with a 74/81 KD in long match against Team Orbit on Day 4 of MLG London.

Nolson was both a boon and a bane for Team Infused. Nolson was strong in the early game, but struggled continually in the series. Nolson largely stacked with his carries, Peatie and Moose, helping secure kills and holding their flanks. But Nolson had difficulty holding the line when Moose and Peatie fell. Nolson did well in Round 1 Hardpoint with a 24/18 KD by stacking just outside the Hardpoint and calling out the positions of Team Orbit. But just calling out positions isn't enough for a tournament series. The Search & Destroy rounds exploited Nolson's weak gunplay with Team Orbit ganking Nolson on flanks before picking off the rest of his team. In Round 2 Search & Destroy, Nolson posted a 4/7 KD while in Round 5 Search & Destroy he scored 5/9 KD. Nolson's indecisiveness saw him whiff his Centurion Payload in Game 9 of Round 5 Search & Destroy. Nolson was picked off before he could even lay it down.

Nolson was a key member of Infused as they blew past Aware Gaming 3-1 to advance into the losers bracket semifinals. He posted an 84/67 KD.

Nolson had a huge game for Infused, and that is an excellent sign for them going forward after their win over Aware. He started off very well, with a nice triple kill disrupting an Aware push in Round 1 Hardpoint. He had an eight kill streak to hold a hill -- he was an unstoppable force throughout the round. He had somewhat of a down game in Round 2 Search & Destroy, but he notched the final kill in game seven. Overall, though, he struggled to string kills together in the round. Nolson had a carry and some nice defensive plays in a close 8-6 Round 3 Uplink loss. He started off with an objective based game in Round 4 Uplink, but pivoted into a strong slaying game, keeping Aware at bay multiple times as hills were taken by teammates. Nolson can be a gamechanger if this kind of performance continues.

Nolson was not the star of the show, but he was integral to the win over Fnatic. He earned a 50/49 KD in the Friday win.

While teammates Peatie and Moose really stole the show, Nolson played a key part in Infused's victory over Fnatic on Friday at Gfinity London. Peatie and Moose did most of the slaying in Round 1 Hardpoint, but Nolson staked out the objective and hung onto it; he posted 2:20 on the hill, which was key in the 250-227 round victory. He was strong in Round 2 Search & Destroy as well, beating Tommey's sniper rifle, earning a double kill and Game 2 win. Later on, he masterfully kept himself alive long enough to prevent SunnyB from defusing the bomb. Nolson added a point to the Round 3 Uplink win, as well as some defensive plays that kept their team in the lead, and secured victory.

Nolson last season with HyperGames certainly had its ups-and-downs. At its peak, HyperGames was the best team in Europe, throttling top-tier competition such as Splyce and Millenium throughout much of Stage 2. However, all the team's success during the online season never translated to wins at LAN events, as HyperGames failed to place highly at any major events given its talent. Nolson certainly did his part to help the team, putting together admirable slaying performances despite handling a variety of different roles on the team. He'll likely take a back seat in the slaying category on Team Infused, as both MarkyB and Moose have manned that role on their previous teams. Still, the flexibility that Nolson provides likely makes this roster a potential juggernaut in the Europe.

Nolson led his team in slays, ending the match with a 67/70 KD.

Nolson was one of the lone bright spots for HyperGames when they were swept by Splyce to get sent to the losers bracket. Nolson was an offensive dynamo in Round 1 Hardpoint, ending the round with a lobby-leading 40 kills. He was all over the map, and showed how good of a slayer he can be, but they struggled to hold off Splyce's four-pronged attack. Nolson continued his hot slaying hand in Round 2 Search & Destroy, ending with six kills, as well as the final kill of game four. Nolson started the (futile) comeback effort for HyperGames after going down by double digits in the opening minutes of Round 3 Uplink, capping off an impressive eight-killstreak. He gave HyperGames a life, and momentum, when they needed it, but it was far too little too late. Nolson will hope to continue his slaying powers to push HyperGames through the losers bracket.

Nolson shows strong offense with a 86/62 KD in HyperGames' sweep at the hands of Millenium.

Nolson started off with an unbelievable performance in Round 1 Hardpoint. He ended with 39 kills, and was second on this team with 52 seconds of Hardpoint time. He used his scorestreaks smartly, as well, getting a Hellstorm double kill. He had another strong slaying display in Round 2 Uplink, ending the round with a match-leading 33 kills. He and Braaain opened up Zed for a dunk. He continued to propel the offense in the second half, using his Scythe to open up Zed again. He had an excellent 1-vs-1 firefight win to obtain a 12 killstreak, and to open QwiKeR up for a dunk, which gave them a short lived lead. He did have a major gaffe, however, when he missed a completely wide open dunk, and did not convert the throw-in. Nolson was inconsistent again in Round 3 Search & Destroy; he executed a beautiful flank of Millenum, but missed his shots, in a perfect example of Nolson's game in this match. Nolson had a nice defense of his base early in Round 4 Capture the Flag, but did not do much else in the defensive battle.
