Lackluster in loss
September 2, 2018
Maestr0 earned a series KDA of 0/4/7 during his team's 0-2 series defeat at the hands of WE.
ANALYSIS
In line with the rest of Snake Esports, Maestr0 simply had a poor showing during his team's series against World Elite. Starting things off on Tahm Kench, he was unable to use the pick to either control the enemy team or to keep his team's carries safe. After falling behind in lane, he was too afraid to roam which resulted in his team falling behind in objective control. The result was an unfortunate 32-minute defeat for his team. Game 2 didn't go any better as Snake once again fell behind early. Although Maestr0 was able to put up a better performance, he simply could not do what his team needed him to do. Unable to find objective control or picks he allowed the enemy to run away with the game quickly. As his team fell around him, he did little more than prevent multiple deaths. As a result, Snake was defeated, giving up the series 2-0 to World Elite.
Falters on control carries
September 2, 2018
Light earned a series KDA of 0/4/5 during Snake Esports 2-0 loss against WE.
ANALYSIS
Much like the rest of his team, Light had an extremely rough series during his team's loss against WE. Throughout the whole series, he was unable to find a single kill or even a lead for himself. In Game 1, he was unable to get anything going in lane, falling behind early and never finding a way to recover. The game held little for him other than despair as he simply died time and again in his team's first defeat. Game 2 didn't go any better for Light as he once again found himself on a carry that he was unable to do anything with. Though he didn't fall behind quite as quickly as the previous game, he once again found minimal success. As the game progressed he was simply outscaled, giving the enemy bottom lane free reign of the game. Try as he might, he could not find an opening, allowing WE to take Game 2 in 29 minutes and close out the series 2-0.
Unable to find a single kill in defeat
September 2, 2018
Guoguo earned a series KDA of 0/5/5 during his team's 0-2 loss at the hands of WE.
ANALYSIS
Guoguo had a relatively poor performance during his team's defeat against World Elite. Starting Game 1 on Orianna, he found himself quickly falling behind in lane. Desperate for help, he would never find it as the rest of his team saw a similar fate. Unable to ever recover, the result was a convincing loss in Game 1. Desperate to find a game in the series, he continued to overextend well into Game 2. Opting for Galio, he was at the mercy of the enemy laner from the very start. As the rest of his team faltered, his lackluster showing was no help to his team's state. The result was an even quicker loss in Game 2, with World Elite finding victory in 29 minutes. With the defeat, Snake Esports fell 2-0 in the series.
Unable to keep up with enemy pressure
September 2, 2018
SofM earned a series KDA of 4/4/4 during his team's series defeat at the hands of WE.
ANALYSIS
Try as he might, SofM simply could not keep up with the enemy team during his team's loss at the hands of World Elite. Starting the series off on Trundle, SofM was able to help his top lane find a lead but neglected the rest of the map. Unable to find any objectives in the game, his inability to control the map resulted in a Game 1 defeat. The second game of the series went better for SofM but did not go nearly as well for the remainder of his team. Though he found success on Kindred by picking up early kills, the rest of his team fell behind as the game went on. Try as he might, SofM could not bring things back despite finding a few objectives for his team. The result was a 2-0 series defeat.
Falls off in series loss
September 2, 2018
Flandre earned a series KDA of 5/6/4 during his team's 2-0 series loss against WE.
ANALYSIS
Although Flandre was able to start off his team's series against WE with a decent performance, he was ultimately unable to keep things going, leading to his team's defeat. Starting things off the series on a surprise Cassiopeia, Flandre was able to do well in lane but found himself struggling to keep up pressure as his team fell behind. Unable to translate his lead to the rest of his team, he found himself falling in Game 1. Game 2 didn't go nearly as well individually as Flandre could not find a lead for himself in lane. Once again, the rest of his team struggled to get things done, leaving the team in a poor situation, to say the least. Try as he might, Flandre could not find openings in the late game, allowing the enemy team to close things out and take the series 2-0.
Dies only once in series victory
September 2, 2018
Ben earned a 0/1/17 KDA during his team's convincing victory over Snake Esports.
ANALYSIS
Picking champions to keep his carries safe in both games of the team's series against Snake. Starting things off on Barum, Ben was able to both facilitate his team picking up kills while simultaneously keeping his carry safe. This strategy worked out fantastically, allowing WE to convincingly take Game 1 in just 32 minutes. Game 2 went even better as Ben found himself on Tahm Kench, purely focused on protecting his team. He did just that throughout the game, dominating lane and sticking by Mystic's side to keep him safe in skirmishes. This once again paid off, allowing him to dominate lane and assist his team in taking back-to-back fight victories. After winning a final fight, the team pushed into the enemy base to secure a 29-minute win and close out the series 2-0.
Near deathless in victory
September 2, 2018
Mystic earned a series KDA of 13/1/8 during his team's convincing victory over Snake Esports.
ANALYSIS
Mystic had an immaculate performance during his team's victory over Snake Esports. Starting off the series on Kai'Sa, he was able to dominate in lane and quickly transition his lead across the rest of the map. After completely shutting down the enemy carries he began to focus on objectives which he took without contest. Participating in all but one of his team's kills while finding only a single death, Mystic's performance was crucial to his team's 32-minute victory. Game 2 went just as well as Mystic once again destroyed lane and began grouping with his team. He had no problem dealing huge amounts of damage as Varus in teamfights. Try as the enemy might, they could not shut him down, allowing him to lead his team to a 29-minute victory and close out the series 2-0.
Controlled play nets win
September 2, 2018
Xiye earned a series KDA of 7/2/10 during his team's convincing 2-0 victory over Snake Esports.
ANALYSIS
Throughout his team's series against Snake Esports, xiye had a calm and collected style that allowed his team to claim a convincing 2-0 sweep. Starting things off on Ryze, he was able to dominate lane and seamlessly transition to objectives and skirmishes with the rest of his team. Despite being focused, he was able to avoid death time and again to bring his team the advantage in fights. The result was a quick 32-minute victory. Game 2 went just as well as xiye found himself on Lulu and was able to facilitate the rest of his team's domination after winning lane on his own. Buffing up his carries time and again, he was able to destroy the enemy in teamfights, both through damage of his own as well as keeping his carries safe enough to deal damage. The result was back-to-back teamfight wins, resulting in a 29-minute win to close out the series 2-0.
Consistent showing in victory
September 2, 2018
Pepper earned a series KDA of 2/4/11 during his team's 2-0 series victory over Snake Esports.
ANALYSIS
Pepper had a very strong showing during his team's victory over Snake. Despite not boasting an incredible scoreline, he was able to control the map and objectives throughout his team's series, ultimately leading to a 2-0 sweep. He started off the series on Xin Zao and had a quiet game, participating in only a third of his team's kills. Despite this, he was able to control objectives, taking everything except Rift Herald for his team, leading them to a 32-minute win. Game 2 went differently with Pepper playing a more involved role on Trundle. Starting to gank early, he found success, bringing his team a large early lead. Trading objectives, he was able to bring his team the advantages that mattered, taking a Baron that ultimately secured his team the 29-minute victory in the game to close out the series 2-0.
Carry performance nets win over Snake
September 2, 2018
957 earned a series KDA of 1/1/9 during his team's 2-0 sweep over Snake Esports.
ANALYSIS
957 had a quiet but strong performance during his team's victory over Snake. Starting Things off on Jayce, he found himself in an unconventional matchup, up against an enemy Cassiopeia. Though the pick resulted in an awkward laning phase, 957 was not phased himself. Able to edge out a small lead, he quickly grouped with his team to dominate in skirmishes. This resulted in a convincing 32-minute victory. Game 2 went in a similar vein for 957 as he was once again in an odd lane matchup. Despite this, the rest of his team was dominant, destroying the enemy with ease. With a huge teamwide advantage, 957 had no problem grouping once again to claim a 29-minute win. As a result, WE claimed the series 2-0.
