Let go by Mysterious Monkeys
September 18, 2017
Amazing has released from Mysterious Monkeys, reports Adam Newell of Dot Esports.
ANALYSIS
After Mysterious Monkeys failed to stay in the EU LCS, the team has decided to let go of Amazing. Amazing joined the team after they lost the first four games of the season in hopes of somehow turning things around. That didn't happen, unfortunately, and the team was sent to the promotion tournament. The team failed to stick around, leaving the fate of the players in doubt. With his release, he is either looking for another shot as a player, or he may move on to coaching. No replacement for the team has yet been announced.
Struggles as things progress in series defeat
September 13, 2017
Adrian earned a series KDA of 0/10/10 in his team's 0-3 defeat at the hands of FLY.
ANALYSIS
Starting the series out on Nami, Adrian had a decent performance despite his team's shortcomings. Although he was able to participate in all of his team's kills, it was not enough to close things out. As his lanes all fell behind, he could not gain vision control to allow his team to find positioning and take favorable fights. After losing the first game, Adrian's performance noticeably dropped, with him being focused early and unable to get anything done in the remainder of the series. Allowing FlyQuest to take fights easily, he was dominated in the final two games of the series, allowing FlyQuest to take a 3-0 series victory.
Finds only two kills in series loss
September 13, 2017
Altec earned a miserable series KDA of 2/11/5 in his team's swift 0-3 defeat against FLY.
ANALYSIS
Although Altec has consistently been a solid player on Dignitas, his series performance against FlyQuest was not indicative of that. Getting absolutely dominated in every game, his performance tanked throughout the series, allowing FlyQuest to run away with the victory. Although he was able to put up a decent performance during the first game of the series, he quickly faltered in the rest, only able to pick up a combined three assists without a single kill during the remainder. As a result, FlyQuest easily dominated with their snowballed bottom lane, allowing Dignitas to be defeated easily. With the losses, FlyQuest claimed the victory 3-0.
Lackluster showing in series loss against FlyQuest
September 13, 2017
Keane earned a series KDA of 2/6/7 in his team's 0-3 loss.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the entire series against FlyQuest, Keane struggled to get much of anything done, faltering in lane and never able to recover. He started off Game 1 with a poor showing on Orianna, falling behind swiftly in lane and doing nothing to attempt to comeback. After falling behind, he couldn't do enough in fights to bring his team the victory. Game 2 and 3 went similarly, with Keane falling behind early and being extremely lackluster as a result. With his team at a huge disadvantage, he struggled again and could not output nearly enough damage to bring his team back into things. Although not the sole reason for his team's defeat, his poor performance contributed to Dignitas' 0-3 loss in the series.
Unable to find meaningful leads for team throughout defeat
September 13, 2017
Shrimp earned a series KDA of 10/11/7 in his team's 0-3 defeat against FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
Although Shrimp had a decent performance and earned the most kills out of anyone on his team in the series, his performance did not net the rest of his team an advantage; something that cost them in the long run. Finding early kills for himself and heavily focusing topside, he neglected his faltering bottom lane in every game of the series. As they fell further and further behind, he struggled to catch up, allowing FlyQuest to push their lead in each game with ease. As a result, FlyQuest took a swift 3-0 victory in the series.
Lackluster performance even on comfort picks
September 13, 2017
Ssumday earned a series KDA of 7/5/6 throughout his team's 0-3 defeat against FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
Although Ssumday was given carry champions in his team's series against FlyQuest, he struggled to get things going in every game but the second. Falling behind early and being given limited resources in both Game 1 and Game 3, he was unable to ever recover, fending for himself and neglecting the rest of his team. As a result, both games saw quick defeats for Dignitas. Game 2 went better for Ssumday who found himself ahead early on with Renekton, though he could not translate his lead to the rest of the team. Though he could pick up advantages for himself, the lack of team coordination cost Dignitas, allowing FlyQuest to pick up the victory. Although he had a single decent performance, Ssumday's poor showing resulted in his team losing the series 0-3 and being eliminated from World's contention.
Strong performance nets victory against Dignitas
September 13, 2017
LemonNation earned a series KDA of 5/4/32 in FLY's 3-0 sweep over DIG.
ANALYSIS
Unsurprisingly picking champions to utilize Ardent Censer, LemonNation was able to easily facilitate WildTurtles domination throughout his team's series victory against Dignitas. In lane, he was able to assist in finding early leads, through both engagements and disengaging when his carry was in trouble. This allowed the rest of FlyQuest to move throughout the game with ease due to the advantages from the bottom lane. As a result in each game, FlyQuest was able to easily dominate teamfights, securing victories left and right. Although LemonNation was killed multiple times in the process, he was able to trade his life for advantages for the rest of his team's benefit, securing a convincing 3-0 series sweep.
Amazing performance nets victory over Dignitas
September 13, 2017
WildTurtle earned a series KDA of 19/1/17 in his team's 3-0 sweep over Dignitas.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the entire series, WildTurtle played out of his mind, dominating in each stage of every game to single-handedly bring his team a convincing series victory. Although he's been criticised in the past, he had no trouble finding an early lead for himself in lane and capitalizing in each game, dominating teamfights and handing his team prime positioning to secure the victory. Although he was heavily focused, he died only a single time in the series, earning a monstrous 36.0 KDA in the victory, showing his dominance throughout the 3-0 series sweep.
Near deathless in series victory over Dignitas
September 13, 2017
Hai earned a series KDA of 8/2/24 in his team's domination over Dignitas 3-0.
ANALYSIS
Playing Galio in the first two games against Dignitas, Hai had a stellar performance to propel his team to a swift 2-0 victory over Dignitas. Finding early leads in both games, he had an easy time joining his team for dominant skirmishes, utilizing his ultimate to both engage and disengage depending on the circumstances. This excellent play proved useful, buying space for the rest of his team as they took teamfights over and over, easily closing out both games. In Game 3, Hai switched things up, picking Syndra, yet dominating once again. After finding early kills, he was able to shut down the enemy carries, leading his team to a 26-minute victory. With the win, FlyQuest secured it's 3-0 sweep in the series.
Impressive jungling results in sweep
September 13, 2017
Moon earned a series KDA of 5/8/26 in his team's 3-0 sweep over Dignitas.
ANALYSIS
Picking Jarvan in Game 1, Moon had an exceptional performance to demonstrate his skill on the champion, participating in all but two of his team's kills during the game. Snowballing early, he had no problem bringing his team a massive lead that resulted in a 37-minute victory. Game 2 went similarly with Moon picking NIdalee and once again finding an early lead. Although not as impressive as the last game, he facilitated his carries finding an advantage that allowed them to decimate the enemy team and result in another swift victory. Game 3 saw yet another dominant performance as Moon picked up Rek'sai and dominated from the early game, picking up leads again for his team. After doing so, he controlled objectives, easily choking Dignitas out of the game. With the lead, the rest of FlyQuest had no trouble closing out the game, securing the 3-0 victory in the series.
Strong performance on tanks and a carry results in sweep
September 13, 2017
Balls earned a series KDA of 5/6/23 in FLY's 3-0 sweep over Dignitas.
ANALYSIS
Starting the series off on Rumble, Balls was able to pull out a strong performance to start the series off right. After dominating lane, he had no trouble finding favorable ultimates in teamfights to continue FLY's onslaught and pick up a swift Game 1 victory. Using this momentum, he had a strong performance throughout the next two games of the series where he was placed on tanks. In Game 2, he found himself on Maokai, heavily focused and shut down in the early game. Despite this, he never backed down, scaling up and providing necessary crowd control to dominate the mid game and bring FLY a second victory. Game 3 saw a similar storyline with him once again being focused heavily in the early game and then bouncing back as the game went on. On Cho'gath, he had several crucial ultimates that swung fights in his team's favor, allowing FLY to easily close out the game, securing the 3-0 series sweep.
Solid numbers in series loss
September 12, 2017
4/12/30 was aphromoo's overall KDA at the end of CLG's 3-1 loss to Cloud9 Sunday.
ANALYSIS
aphromoo started off with a quiet 0/1/2 game on Thresh, which was honestly pretty good considering how savagely CLG were beaten. He stuck with Alistar for the rest of the series and was extremely hit or miss. He looked very strong in Game 3, as CLG accumulated a lead and he was free to engage as hard as he wanted, but in the Game 2 and 4 losses, he was highly unimpressive. He botched several engages, including one in Game 4 that might have turned the tide of the game for his team. Overall, this was not what is expected of the veteran support, and as a result, he will not be making another trip to Worlds this year.
Fantastic in wins
September 12, 2017
Smoothie went 1/11/48 in Cloud9's 3-1 win over CLG Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie's Rakan in Games 1 and 2 was absolutely stellar despite not being paired with Xayah, as he went an incredible 1/3/23 across the two games, landing great initiation after great initiation. His Game 3 on Thresh was lackluster, but his Game 4 on Janna was crucial to his team's narrow win. With Sneaky having the game of his season on Xayah, Smoothie's ability to keep him alive allowed Cloud9 to take the game, along with his self-sacrifice to get his team a Baron buff.
Series of his season
September 12, 2017
Sneaky ended Cloud9's 3-1 win over CLG Sunday with a KDA of 22/4/19.
ANALYSIS
Sneaky absolutely shined this series, showing his old carry form that has been largely absent this season. His Game 1 on Tristana was quiet, as he was carried by other team members to a 1/0/7 KDA. His 9/2/2 Game 2, however, was arguably the biggest reason CLG were able to come back from an early disadvantage and was good enough that CLG took the pick away in Games 3 and 4. Sneaky proved to be just as effective on Xayah, however, as although Cloud9 lost Game 3, he still looked solid. Finally, in Game 4, Sneaky's Xayah hard-carried Cloud9 to Worlds, going deathless in the closest game of the series and single-handedly winning fights for C9 in the late game.
Outshined by Sneaky
September 12, 2017
Stixxay's overall KDA read 15/11/12 by the end of CLG's 3-1 loss to Cloud9 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay's Game 1 on Caitlyn and Game 2 on Xayah were extremely underwhelming, which was problematic, as Sneaky was having the best series of his whole season on Tristana. As such, Stixxay took the pick for himself in Games 3 and 4. This allowed CLG to take Game 4, as their triple frontline and mid Orianna provided Stixxay with the ideal teamfighting setup. In Game 4, Stixxay did his absolute best to carry CLG in the late game, as he buffered his Rocket Jumps perfectly to dodge multiple Shockwaves as well as other abilities, but he ultimately fell short.
