Near untouchable in loss
July 5, 2018
jkaem posted a solid 63/56 KD in Renegades' 2-1 loss against BIG on Thursday at ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
jkaem started this series with a rough-looking 9/18 KD in a Game 1 win on Dust2. The fact that they managed to win at all when he was at the bottom of the scoreboard was quite the feat here. Once things moved over to Train and Inferno for the last two games, jkaem woke up and dominated the competition with a combined 55/38 KD in those games. Almost all the clutches belonged to jkaem and he tried to drag his team across the finish line by himself, but he simply was unable to do so. He needed much more help here but without it, Renegades were now sent packing.
Does his part in a rough loss
July 5, 2018
Nifty went 70/62 in Renegades' 2-1 loss to BIG on Thursday that eliminated them from ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
From start to finish in this series, Nifty was a heavy contributor to Renegades' offense at every moment. He led the team to a win on Dust2 with a 26/19 KD, and stayed hot with KDs of 18/18 and 26/25 in Games 2 and 3. Even in the losses, he was following up jkaem with some solid plays that gave Renegades a fighting chance here. In the end, though, there wasn't enough help from the rest of his team in this one and then were bounced without a thought from BIG.
Positive KD in elimination loss
July 5, 2018
jks posted a respectable 59/57 KD in Renegades' 2-1 loss to BIG on Thursday in ESL Cologne when they were eliminated.
ANALYSIS
When jks opened this series with a 24/14 KD in Game 1 on Dust2, it looked like they were about to continue what could have been a Cinderella run through this bracket. He had a nice quad kill and the rest of his team added in many strong rounds all throughout the game, but then it all fell apart in the final two games. For his part, jks tallied a 19/23 KD on Train and then a 16/20 KD on Inferno in Games 2 and 3, respectively. Renegades might have done well to win Game 1, but this was certainly not the way they would have wanted this to end.
Troubling performance in elimination loss
July 5, 2018
AZR picked up a 56/64 KD in Renegades' 2-1 loss against BIG on Thursday at ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
AZR started things out well enough in this series but just couldn't keep up the production. On Dust2, he had a couple blistering rounds where he picked up a 3k and stopped BIG dead in their tracks. This was enough to get a 16-13 win in Game 1, but then everything fell apart. BIG came alive and Renegades simply fell apart. They pushed the game into OT on Inferno in Game 3, but that was about the only thing they could do in this series during the final two games.
Falls apart as Renegades crumble against BIG
July 5, 2018
USTILO tallied a 50/69 KD in Renegades' 2-1 loss against BIG on Thursday at ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
USTILO started well enough in this series with a 19/20 KD when his team picked up a win on Dust2. He even managed a couple nice plays, featuring a 3k to shut down BIG at the end of the first half. They went on to win 16-13 before the wheels completely fell off the wagon here. BIG completely took over and picked up wins in the next two games to take the series. They did well to take out B.O.O.T.-d[S] on Wednesday, but against formidable competition, they simply couldn't stand up.
