Limited in win
October 19, 2019

Baker's dozen assists

Paces SKT in assists

Not enough effort in defeats
September 13, 2018
Effort earned a series KDA of 2/11/21 during SKT's series loss at the hands of Generation G.
ANALYSIS
Effort had an extremely up-and-down performance during his team's series against Generation G. Starting the series off with a couple of decent games, he seemed to have found his stride, helping SKT to quickly earn a 2-1 lead in the series. Unfortunately this was the end of Effort's success as he struggled immensely in the final two games of the series. Picking Tahm Kench back to back, he was punished for his champion's immobility, giving up kills time and again. Try as he might to find an advantage through vision and roaming, he was unable to do so. As the enemy team got aggressive, he seems unsure of how to respond, giving up small leads to left and right. Unable to ever get the jump on the enemy team, he fell alongside his team in back to back games. As a result, SKT was defeated 2-3 in the series.
Series-high kill total
August 9, 2018
Effort ended Thursday's 2-0 loss to KZ with a 4/8/5 KDA in two games as Braum.
ANALYSIS
Effort finished Game 1 with a 0/4/4 KDA. He was involved in four of five kills, tying for the team-high assist total in the opening game. In Game 2, Effort earned a 4/4/1 KDA. He was involved in all five kills in Game 2, leading SKT with four kills in the loss. Effort finished the series involved in a team-high nine of 10 kills, leading SKT with four kills.
Puts forth maximum effort in win
June 30, 2018
Effort finished SKT's 2-0 sweep of bbq Olivers on Saturday with a 7/1/9 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Playing Pyke in both games of this series, Effort looked more like the carry at times with how he was playing here. In Game 1, he showed off with game-high five kills as his Pyke was a force to be reckoned with. He didn't have as many kills in Game 2, but he still kept on tag-teaming with Bang to shut down bbq. This was perhaps the best showing we've seen from this bottom lane in quite some time and it's got SKT looking like their old selves again.
Shines as series progresses for SKT
June 27, 2018
Effort rocked a 7/11/21 KDA in SK Telecom's 2-1 win over KT Rolster on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Make no mistake about it, Effort looked bad in Game 1 as Morgana. He died early in lane to Ezreal/Tahm Kench, he started chain feeding against KT's hard engage composition (although that's to be expected given SKT's weak frontline), and he ended with a 2/7/1 KDA that had fans clambering for Wolf to come back. Effort made those fans swallow their words in Games 2 and 3, though, when he got his hands on Pyke, using the new playmaking champion to accelerate SKT's early game. Effort's performance in Game 3, in particular, should be highlighted, as he set his team up to dominate KT's jungle while chain-CC'ing KT en route to a 5/2/9 KDA. Still, the ghost of his Morgana game still lingers, so only time will tell whether Effort is a legit top-tier support or simply an engage bot.
Excels in funnel strategy
June 24, 2018
Effort tallied a 3/3/19 KDA during SK Telecom T1's 2-0 win over the Jin Air Green Wings on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Whether it was playing up in the jungle as part of the new-look funnel strategy SKT went for in Game 1 or in his typical support role in the bottom lane for Game 2, Effort managed to do it all for his team in this series. He started off on Shen in Game 1 and while his stats weren't anything write home about as the team only managed six kills the entire game, he did his job well and helped Bang get fed early and often. If stats are what you're looking for, though, Effort put up plenty of them in Game 2 on Braum. He went 2/2/17 in his normal support role as he roamed all over the map and helped SKT absolutely dominate things from start to finish.
Wins Game 1
March 23, 2018
Effort finished SKT's Game 1 win over MVP with a 0/2/5 KDA as Braum.
ANALYSIS
Effort was involved in five of six kills, tying Blank for the second-highest kill participation and tying for the team-high assist total. Effort played well, but did give away both of SKT's deaths in Game 1. Effort was replaced for Game 2 by Wolf.
Quiet showing in loss
January 26, 2018
Effort went just 1/3/8 in SKT's 2-0 loss at the hands of Kingzone DragonX on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Effort tried his best, but simply couldn't help elevate the bottom lane to the level needed for SKT to win this series. His Alistar in Game 1 was pretty good, setting up his teammates for kills here and there. It was simply that SKT as a whole crumbled in the final teamfight that Kingzone used to pick up the win. He then switched to Tahm Kench in Game 2 and was wholly invisible in Kingzone's dominating win.
Solid series for the new support
January 21, 2018
Effort posted a 2/6/28 KDA in SK Telecom T1's 1-2 series loss to Jin Air Green Wings on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Effort played two games of Tahm Kench and a game of Janna. His Tahm Kench was clutch throughout, continually providing a safety net for SKT. He continued to impact the games and lane well with Bang, despite the JAG bot lane playing very well. Game 3 was a little different for Effort due to the game being a marathon session filled with 90 minutes gameplay. He showed true resolve, even putting out more damage than his own jungler. Effort has a large upside for SKT, but there are some kinks that he will have to work out with Bang for laning, on top of macro/communication issues within the team as a whole.
Plays well in team debut
January 17, 2018
Effort finished Wednesday's 2-1 win over ROX with a 1/4/33 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Effort used Tahm Kench in Game 1 to finish with a 1/3/11 KDA. He was involved in 12 of 14 kills, leading SKT with 11 assists. In Game 2, Effort used Taric and finished with a 0/1/4 KDA. He was involved in four of six kills and gave away only one death as ROX evened the series. Using Alistar in the final game of the series, Effort earned a 0/0/18 KDA. He was involved in 18 of 21 kills, leading the game with 18 assists. Effort played well in place of Wolf, dying only four times while piling up a series-high 33 assists.
