Recovers from early error
August 18, 2018
4/2/9 was Memento's KDA as ROCCAT took down Misfits on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Memento's Olaf didn't have the best start, as three members of Misfits Flashed onto him in his own jungle to take him down for first blood. Afterward, however, he thrived, assisting in a 3-for-0 tower dive and getting saved in the nick of time by Norskeren to prevent a trade kill. Olaf's aggressive nature as a champion synergized fantastically with the global presence of ROCCAT's team composition, which together facilitated dives and forward positioning throughout the game.
Tremendous Tahm Kench
August 18, 2018
Norskeren ended 2/4/11 as ROCCAT found a win over Misfits on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Norskeren put on a clinic on how to play Tahm Kench on Saturday, making excellent use of both of the champion's two greatest strengths. In the early game, Norskeren helped to both create and prevent tower dives by roaming with Abyssal Voyage, allowing ROCCAT to find an early lead. In teamfights, as well as earlier, he excelled at saving his carries from the pick composition of Misfits, shutting down Sencux's LeBlanc on multiple occasions. Norskeren was caught out a couple of times himself but played well enough to excuse his errors.
Brings back Twisted Fate
August 18, 2018
Blanc went 6/2/12 in ROCCAT's win over Misfits on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Blanc looked right at home on a rarely seen Twisted Fate on Saturday, slotting into ROCCAT's global composition. His use of Destiny/Gate was fantastic, opening up multiple early-game dives that put ROCCAT far in the lead. As the game progressed, Blanc turned to split-pushing, at one point taking an inhibitor and Nexus turret as his team fought evenly in the 4-vs-5. Altogether, Blanc put out the most map pressure by far of any member of the team, and earned his fantastic KDA and win.
Superb Pyke goes unrewarded
August 18, 2018
Mikyx's scoreline read 4/5/6 as Misfits fell to ROCCAT on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Aside from a missed Flash-Bone Skewer combo at the beginning of the game, Mikyx played fights in this game to near perfection. He landed his skillshots, dipped in and out of vision as much as possible, and found kills with his ultimate to share the love, general fulfilling his role to the best of his ability. Unfortunately, without the damage of a real carry, this was insufficient to take down ROCCAT; in fact, much of his success might be attributed to ROCCAT prioritizing juicier targets.
Thwarted time and again
August 18, 2018
Sencux's KDA read 3/3/7 at the end of Misfits' loss to ROCCAT on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
As one piece of a dedicated pick comp, Sencux's LeBlanc struggled to find the kills he needed to get rolling. This was largely due to the heavy global and semi-global presence of ROCCAT's team composition, which forcibly outnumbered Misfits at seemingly every turn. As a result, Sencux's ability to find picks was hamstrung early on. Once teamfights rolled around, he faced an equally frustrating problem in the form of Tahm Kench's Devour coming out from Norskeren, saving carries multiple times before Sencux could finish them off. Sencux still put out good damage but was heavily hampered in this game.
Monopolizes Misfits' early kills
August 18, 2018
Maxlore went 5/6/6 in Misfits' Saturday loss to ROCCAT.
ANALYSIS
In a fully fledged pick composition, Maxlore's Taliyah was the only one making picks for Misfits in this game. His ganks around the map, assisted by Weaver's Wall, earned him all four of Misfits' early-game kills. However, he couldn't be expected to keep up with ROCCAT's global composition all by himself. On multiple occasions, Maxlore and Misfits as a whole were simply outnumbered or outmaneuvered on the map, and there was nothing Maxlore could do.
Can't make the plays for Schalke 04
August 18, 2018
0/1/2 was Vander's KDA as Schalke 04 fell to H2k on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Schalke 04 may have started to fall behind in the early-to-mid game, but with their area-of-effect damage paired with Vander's Rakan engage, they definitely had a chance to fight back into it. Unfortunately, H2k's split-push tactics made a 5-vs-5 impossible to find until H2k were already far ahead, and Vander never found a solid engage. As such, there wasn't much of anything for him to do in this game, and he accomplished almost nothing.
Not much to do
August 18, 2018
Vizicsacsi went 0/1/2 in Schalke 04's loss to H2k on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Vizicsacsi's Ryze did its job early on of providing an excellent lane counter to the Fiora of Smittyj, even picking up an assist on first blood in a gank. However, once Rift Herald was used to take down Vizicsacsi's tower, there was little he could do. With the Fiora unlocked, she quickly reached the point where Vizicsacsi could no longer hope to deal with her in the split-push, and Schalke 04 bled turrets.
Falls off after lane
August 18, 2018
Nukeduck ended 1/3/0 as Schalke 04 fell to H2k on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Taking Aatrox as a counter pick to the Akali of Selfie, Nukeduck thrived for the opening minutes of the game, winning trades and forcing a CS advantage. However, once he was caught out by Caedrel and fed a kill over to Selfie, Nukeduck's game went down the gutter. He was succinctly dived under the bottom lane turret by Selfie, and quickly became nearly irrelevant in fights, especially compared to his counterpart. He couldn't keep up in the split-push either and thus ceded map pressure over to H2k.
Makes full recovery
August 18, 2018
Smittyj's KDA read 2/1/3 as H2k found a win over Schalke 04 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Smittyj's Fiora got off to a rough start in this game, as he not only struggled in lane against the Ryze of Vizicsacsi but was ganked for first blood. However, thanks to Xerxe giving Smittyj an assist and first turret, Smittyj was able to bounce back. Out of the initial laning phase, Smittyj put out tons of map pressure through split-pushing before finally tag teaming with Selfie's Akali to make a pick onto Amazing. This pick granted H2k an easy Baron, along with the game.
