Clutches not enough to net win
September 15, 2017
RpK put together a 38/43 KD in Team EnVyUs' sweep at the hands of Na'Vi on Day 1 of ESL New York.
ANALYSIS
RpK was clutching left and right in the first game of this series. But clutches alone aren't enough to necessarily win rounds consistently once the other team starts to battle back. This reared its ugly head and left EnVyUs with a loss in this game. The second game was more of the same for RpK here. He started off a bit rough with just three kills in the first nine rounds, but then followed that up with a 3k in Round 10. While he did find a few more clutches late in this game, it wasn't enough to give his team the win or bring him out from the bottom of his team.
