Benched for Friday's match against H2k Gaming
June 22, 2018
Rekkles has been put on the backburner in favor of Bwipo on Friday, Jacob Wolf of ESPN esports reports.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles is the latest victim of the current topsy-turvy meta that has been sweeping the professional League of Legends scene in the first couple of weeks of the Summer Split. With champions being played at just about any position these days, Fnatic has decided they don't need an ADC, at least for a game. Bwipo will be stepping into the bottom lane in place of Rekkles when they take face H2k Gaming on Friday afternoon. Whether this is a permanent change remains to be seen as the team is likely going to see how Bwipo does before making any long-term decisions.
To start over Rekkles
June 22, 2018
Bwipo will be starting in place of Rekkles when Fnatic takes on H2k Gaming on Friday, Jacob Wolf of ESPN esports reports.
ANALYSIS
In the continuing flurry that is the current League of Legends meta, Fnatic has decided to start their top laner in place of their ADC. It's somewhat surprising given that it means Rekkles, the perennial ADC will be on the bench, but it's not that surprising given the craziness we've already seen over the first couple weeks of the Summer Split. There's no word on how long this change will persist past their game on Friday.
Shreds enemy in one-sided victory
June 19, 2018
Jankos earned a 2/0/10 KDA on Trundle throughout his team's victory over ROCCAT.
ANALYSIS
From the very beginning, it was clear that Jankos was the better jungler. Able to assist in picking up First Blood, he set his team up for success from the get go. He began playing aggressively after, outfarming his opponent and quickly joining his team. Thanks to Jankos' excellent play, his team dominated a skirmish in the top lane, securing four easy kills and snowballing ahead with ease. From then on, the rest of the game was simple with Jankos moving alongside his team quickly decimating the enemy team and structures. Not needing to focus on objectives, he simply walked forward with his team. After winning a final fight, he helped secure a 24-minute victory for his team.
Dominant Fiddlesticks performance results in victory
June 19, 2018
Wadid earned a perfect 2/0/11 KDA on Fiddlesticks during his team's victory over ROC.
ANALYSIS
With an extremely unorthodox bottom lane composition, Wadid was able to excel above his peers. Starting off strong, he found first blood for his team just three-minutes into the game. He followed up excellently, pushing lane and picking up a second kill and the first tower of the game before the 10-minute mark. From there, he roamed with his team expertly, regining death in his path wherever he went. His dominant performance resulted in him participating in every one of his team's kills. In true dominating fashion, he went deathless in the victory, allowing his team to take an extremely one-sided 24-minute win.
Struggles to utilize Taliyah in fights, but dominates objectives
June 19, 2018
Djoko earneda 0/4/3 KDA on Taliyah in his team's victory over H2K.
ANALYSIS
From the beginning of the game, it seemed clear that Djoko was not comfortable on Taliyah, but was rather forced to pick the strong champion in order to deny it from the enemy team. The result was a rather unfortunate looking performance when it came down to teamfights and skirmishes. Thankfully, Djoko redeemed himself with an absolutely stunning objective game. Keeping full control of the map, he was able to claim every elemental dragon for his team, every Baron, and an Elder Dragon. This domination helped GIA stay in the game despite being down in kills, contributing to a firm grasp on the game. Although he didn't perform as well in fights, his disruption of the enemy team was enough to facilitate his carries' success, allowing GIA to eventually claim a 45-minute victory over H2K.
Critical performance in victory over H2K
June 19, 2018
SirNukesAlot earned a 0/3/5 KDA on Tahm Kench in his team's victory over H2K.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the game against H2K, SirNukesAlot had a seemingly quiet performance, but his impact was felt in his team's win. Controlling vision early on, he was able to give his team a distinguishable macro advantage that lead to absolute domination of the map. This further allowed his team to control every neutral objective on the map, securing three barons, three elemental dragons, and an Elder Dragon. Throughout this time, SirNukesAlot also used Tahm Kench to great success, saving his carries time and again in what would have been disastrous teamfights. This allowed GIA to stay in the game long enough for an eventual backdoor that resulted in a 45-minute victory. Without SirNukesAlot's ability to save his team and control the map, this victory would not have been possible.
MVP performance results in victory
June 19, 2018
Betsy earned a dominant 6/1/1 KDA on Azir in his team's 45-minute victory over H2K.
ANALYSIS
From the very start of the game, Betsy showed his abilities on Azir, absolutely dominating the enemy team at all stages of the game. Early in the game, Betsy secured four kills for himself and continued to deal massive damage in teamfights. Despite his team falling behind in kills after several unsuccessful skirmishes, Betsy kept his cool, continuing to output consistent damage. This allowed his team to remain in the game and continue buying time to dominate the macro game. As the game came down to the wire and his team was defeated in a final fight, Betsy backdoored the enemy base, securing both nexus towers and ending the game alone to claim a 45-minute victory for his team.
Strong Zoe performance not enough to claim victory
June 19, 2018
Selfie earned a 6/3/4 KDA on Zoe during his team's defeat at the hands of Giants.
ANALYSIS
Despite a poor early game start, Selfie had an extremely strong showing against GIA. After his lane opponent found several early kills, Selfie rebounded, grouping with his team to start taking control of teamfights. Dealing insane damage, he was able to assist his team in claiming several fight victories. Unfortunately, the success of H2K was limited to this small amount of success. With a lack of team synergy, H2K struggled to find objectives off the teamfight victories, allowing GIA to bounce back with ease and claim several Barons. Try as he might, Selfie could not maintain the necessary level of picks to keep his team in the game. As a result, GIA claimed a 45-minute victory.
Fails to control objectives in devastating loss
June 19, 2018
Shook earned a 4/2/7 KDA on Nocturne during his team's defeat against Giants.
ANALYSIS
Just looking at Shook's stat line, you would assume he had a pretty strong performance and that he eventually found victory. Unfortunately for H2K, this could not be further from the truth. During his team's game against Giants, Shook struggled to get anything done in the way of objectives. Throughout the defeat, he was unable to find a single elemental dragon or baron, despite the enemy jungler picking up three of each. His only objective victory came from an Elder Dragon that did not pay off. Despite the rest of his team picking up large amounts of kills and seemingly shutting down the enemy team, the lack of macro play resulted in a 45-minute defeat that likely could have been avoided with the help of one or two neutral objectives.
Deathless performance not enough for victory
June 19, 2018
Sheriff earned a 1/0/9 KDA on Karma in his team's defeat against GIA.
ANALYSIS
Although Sheriff has been praised as one of the best new western AD Carries, he showed his ability on a non-standard champion against Giants. Picking Karma, he dominated lane, amassing a large amount of wave clear and quickly becoming a problem for the enemy team. Despite his strong performance, his inability to mesh with his team ended up being too much to overcome. Although he dealt large portions of damage, it seemed as though the rest of the team was not on the same page. This allowed GIA to dominate the macro game, taking nearly every objective and ultimately claiming victory. Sheriff's strong performance was enough to keep his team in the game for 45-minutes, but not enough to claim victory.
