Cannot make up for team's mistakes
August 6, 2018
Akaadian earned a 2/2/0 KDA on Gragas during his team's loss against Clutch Gaming.
ANALYSIS
Although Akaadian was able to have a decent performance against Clutch Gaming, he was never able to get anything fully done for his team. After finding a kill for his team, he struggled to control objectives to the same degree as the enemy team. As his laners fell behind, he could not find a way for the team to earn a macro advantage. Try as he might, his team fell behind drastically. By the time Akaadian and the rest of his team looked for proactive movements, it was far too late. Dying whenever he engaged, he was unable to keep his team in the game, resulting in a drawn-out 42-minute defeat.
Strong showing on Kindred nets win
July 23, 2018
Akaadian earned a 3/1/3 KDA on Kindred during his team's victory over TSM.
ANALYSIS
Although it took him a little while to get going, Akaadian had a strong performance to help his team dismantle Team SoloMid. After picking up a kill in the top lane, he began focusing on building up stacks and taking over objectives. Although TSM had a sizeable gold lead, Akaadian kept OpTic in the game through his objective control, allowing the rest of his team to scale up and find an opening in the game. During the mid game, he was crucial to his team's skirmishes, taking down key targets left and right. After securing a Baron, he had no problem leading his team to victories, taking control of the game after a poor start. As a result, OpTic took back-to-back fight victories, closing out the game with a 33-minute victory.
Focused on bottom lane early in loss
June 25, 2018
Akaadian posted a 1/4/9 KDA on Xin Zhao in OpTiC Gaming's loss to FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Akaadian didn't have too much trouble from the Gold funneling composition that FLY was running. Instead of trying to help out PowerOfEvil in the mid lane, Akaadian was focused on ganking the bottom lane. While OPT was able to fight back somewhat in the mid game, an overstay on a push late was easily punished and swung the momentum into FLY's favor. Akaadian struggled to make an impact on the final teamfight as FLY easily brushed him aside before knocking down the Nexus.
One real mistake ends game
June 18, 2018
Akaadian went 3/1/1 as OpTic Gaming fell to Cloud9 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Akaadian's Xin Zhao did a fantastic job in the early game, securing first blood as part of a double kill in a top lane skirmish, and going on to secure a third kill and an assist. Unfortunately, his champion couldn't do all that much to prevent Cloud9 from taking over the map through pressure, and his one death gave Cloud9 the Baron they used to finally break the OpTic base.
Unable to abuse Nunu's power against Cloud 9
February 5, 2018
Akaadian earned a 0/3/3 KDA on Nunu during his team's loss against Cloud9 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Although he was able to get his hands on arguably the strongest champion on the current patch, Akaadian was unable to use the pick to find success for his team. Falling behind early, his ability to counterjungle was quickly taken away from him, resulting in a lackluster performance, to say the least. Able to find only a single dragon, and no Barons during the game, he was relegated to simply slowing enemies with his snowballs and using blood boil. Without many options to come back due to his unfortunate position, Akaadian did little more than die in his team's 36-minute loss.
Strong performance doesn't yield victory
January 28, 2018
Akaadian's scoreline read 0/2/7 by the end of OpTic's Saturday loss to TSM.
ANALYSIS
Akaadian's Sejuani probably shouldn't have had an early edge over MikeYeung's Evelynn, but it did. Akaadian managed to not only score first blood for his team but was, in general, the main reason why OpTic held a kill lead for most of the game, as he was involved in seven of his team's eight kills. He also dominated the objective game, getting his team three Elemental Drakes and multiple Barons.
