After falling behind in the early game, he simply could not keep up with the enemy team's level of aggression and failed to match his opponent's roaming. During the mid game, he focused on finding vision for his team but consistently had to revert to simply trying to keep his team alive. Playing reactively rather than proactively, He simply had no way to bring his team into the driver's seat of the game. Though he tried his best, his best simply wasn't enough, resulting in a 30-minute defeat.

ANALYSIS
Although he didn't have a poor performance against Fnatic, Steeelback took a long time to ramp up, resulting in his team's eventual defeat. After being focused in lane, he resigned himself to simply farming as best as he could. This worked somewhat, but he found himself quickly being outscaled by the aggression of the enemy team. Though he tried to keep up with the enemy team, he fell behind as the rest of his team struggled to get anything done. As a result, he could not do much until the final teamfights of the game, allowing Fnatic to take full control of things. Try as he might, he could not hit his power spike earlier, allowing Fnatic to ultimately find a 30-minute victory.

Betsy earned a 0/5/5 KDA on Ryze during his team's loss against Fnatic on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Although Betsy is usually known for having a strong showing during his team's games, he did not have a good performance against Fnatic. Being focused down early on, he struggled to get anything done and had an extremely frustrating early game. After being ganked by the enemy support, he found multiple members of the enemy team showing up in his lane time and again. Without support from the rest of his team, he quickly racked up four deaths, making him nearly useless as the game went on. Try as he might, he could not bounce back from the deficit, failing to find kills in the rest of the game.

Strong showing despite poor stat line
August 11, 2018

After laning phase ended and his team found themselves at a disadvantage, Ruin began finding ways to initiate on the enemy team. Unfortunately, these initiations rarely paid off as the enemy team focused him down heavily. Though he was able to find strong openings such as landing a three-man bodyslam ultimate combo, his team could not follow up as it came too little too late. As a result, Giants was defeated at the 30-minute mark.
