Unable to get things going against Schalke 04
September 11, 2018
Bwipo earned a 3/4/2 KDA on Gangplank during his team's Game 1 defeat at the hands of FC Schalke 04.
ANALYSIS
Starting the series off against Schalke 04, Bwipo simply did not have the performance necessary alongside the rest of his team to claim a victory. Picking Gangplank, he found himself focused down early, resulting in giving up First Blood. As the game progressed, he could not get himself out of the early rut he found himself in. Unfortunately this proved disastrous for the rest of his team as well. Despite trying his best, Bwipo could only recover his own play slightly, not quite enough to make up for the earlier mistakes and help the rest of his team find an opening. In the final minutes of the game, Bwipo found mild success but simply not enough as Fnatic was defeated. As a result, Bwipo was substituted out for the remainder of the series.
Near deathless in victory
August 11, 2018
Bwipo earned a 2/1/9 KDA on Ornn during Fnatic's victory over Giants on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Starting off by assisting in finding first blood for his team, Bwipo had a strong start to his team's game against Giants and never slowed down. Throughout the game, he was consistently able to join his team and provide the engagement that they needed to frequently win skirmishes. After his team found a massive lead in the early game, he quickly joined his team to provide crowd control in fights. After picking up a 20-minute Baron, he had no problem forcing back-to-back teamfights that went easily the way of Fnatic. As a result, his team was able to secure a convincing 30-minute victory.
Strong mage play results in win
August 5, 2018
Bwipo earned a 5/1/3 KDA on Vladimir during his team's victory over G2.
ANALYSIS
Much like the rest of his team, Bwipo had a strong start to FNC's game against G2 and he never slowed down. After picking up an early kill and trading his life in the process, he quickly regained composure and began dominating the enemy team. Using his ultimate with great success, he obliterated the enemy team time and again. Anytime a teamfight erupted, he instantly cut down G2's forces, allowing Fnatic to swiftly close out the game, claiming a 27-minute victory.
Crazy KDA says it all
July 29, 2018
Bwipo went 11/1/9 as Fnatic took down H2k on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
On Swain, Bwipo's insane 11/1/9 KDA is an accurate representation of how well he played this game, especially considering the relatively high death count on his team. Bwipo didn't have any huge highlight plays, but he consistently played fights expertly, whether it was activating his passive off of a Trundle pillar, or dancing on the verge of death with his ultimate healing, or landing his E skillshot, or simply laying down huge burst damage. He found multiple kills in lane and continued to rack them up in teamfights, tying for the highest kill participation in the game and falling just short of taking half his team's kills.
Strong showing in victory
July 20, 2018
Bwipo finished FNC's victory over UoL with a 6/2/4 KDA on Gangplank.
ANALYSIS
Once again picking a melee carry in the bottom lane, Bwipo had a strong performance against UoL. He quickly found a lead in lane, picking up a kill and an assist to start things off. He continued to press his advantage, joining his dominating mid laner to bring FNC an even larger lead than they previously held. Despite not being the most fed member of the enemy team, he was focused heavily. He didn't let this get to him however, dealing large amounts of damage before he was killed. Thankfully, even when he died, he didn't need to do much with Caps completely taking over the game. As a result, FNC claimed an impressive 26-minute victory.
Dominates the bottom lane thorughout victory
July 14, 2018
Finishing his team's victory with a 3/2/5 KDA on Jayce, Bwipo had a strong performance against ROCCAT.
ANALYSIS
After picking up an early assist, Bwipo began taking over the game for his team. With several flashy plays to get knockbacks and bring his team an early lead in the game, his play was crucial to allowing his team to take over. Although he was not able to shut down his opposing laner, he focused his efforts on the rest of the enemy team. Being able to both assist his team with huge amounts of upfront damage as well as having the ability to dive in, Bwipo's play was extremely successful. Winning teamfights at every opportunity, he dealt mass amounts of damage while also drawing the enemy team's focus, allowing the rest of Fnatic to go unharmed. Taking a final teamfight in the enemy base, he pushed in with the rest of his team to claim a 27-minute victory.
Another win on Aatrox
July 7, 2018
Bwipo went 8/3/4 as Fnatic triumphed over Echo Fox on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Bwipo gave his second impressive performance of the day against Echo Fox on Saturday, once again solo killing his lane opponent early on. This time it was even more impressive, as he took down Huni's Renekton at level 5. From there, he took control of the lane and went on to find the most kills in the game--twice that of anyone but Caps, who found a fifth only as the game ended. He did, once again, have the most deaths on the team, but he can easily be forgiven after the success he's found consistently on the champion.
Draws first blood to start the snowball
July 7, 2018
4/3/2 was Bwipo's KDA as Fnatic took down 100 Thieves on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
On the highly favorable matchup of Aatrox into Dr. Mundo, Bwipo capitalized quickly. After growing an early CS lead, he found first blood in the 1-vs-1, taking complete control of the lane. Combined with the rest of his team's advantage, this made the enemy Mundo almost entirely worthless, as he was easily disposed of in teamfights. Bwipo did end with the most deaths on his team, but as a member of the frontline, it was acceptable.
Strong showing on Ornn assists in victory
July 6, 2018
Bwipo earned a 3/2/10 KDA using Ornn to defeat Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
Bwipo had an extremely strong start to his team's game against Echo Fox. Up against a Renekton in the top lane, he quickly found himself getting jungler intervention that resulted in a convincing victory. Assisting in two kills just six minutes into the game, he solidified a strong lead for himself and Fnatic. Moving forward, he continued to use his pressure to his team's advantage, bullying his lane opponent while simultaneously joining his team for crucial fights. Hitting extremely critical ultimates, he was able to target the enemy carries and pick up kills for the rest of his team, turning the tides on several fights in the process. As time went on, his performance only improved as he continued to find the enemy team caught out of position. Being his team's main form of engagement, his strong ultimates and crowd control were crucial to teamfight victories, resulting in a 31-minute victory.
Continues to shine in the bot lane
June 24, 2018
Bwipo went 9/0/10 as Fnatic took down Vitality on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Initially a questionable decision, Fnatic's substitution of Bwipo in place of Rekkles has played out wonderfully. On Swain, Bwipo was involved in three of the first five Fnatic kills, all of which came between the seven- and eight-and-a-half-minute marks. By then, it was all too easy for Fnatic to take the game, with Bwipo remaining deathless and taking the game-high kill participation.
To start over Rekkles
June 22, 2018
Bwipo will be starting in place of Rekkles when Fnatic takes on H2k Gaming on Friday, Jacob Wolf of ESPN esports reports.
ANALYSIS
In the continuing flurry that is the current League of Legends meta, Fnatic has decided to start their top laner in place of their ADC. It's somewhat surprising given that it means Rekkles, the perennial ADC will be on the bench, but it's not that surprising given the craziness we've already seen over the first couple weeks of the Summer Split. There's no word on how long this change will persist past their game on Friday.
Team-high death total in semifinal loss
May 18, 2018
Bwipo ended Fnatic's sweep to RNG with a 6/17/19 total KDA.
ANALYSIS
Bwipo finished Game 1 with a 2/5/6 KDA as Sion. He was involved in only half of his team's kills, ending with the second-lowest kill total, lowest kill participation, and second-lowest assist total in the loss. In Game 2, Bwipo used Camille and ended with a 1/5/5 KDA. He was involved in six of 13 kills, ending the game with the lowest kill participation on the team as Fnatic dropped Game 2. For the final game of the series, Bwipo used Singed and earned a 3/7/8 KDA. He was involved in 11 of 16 kills, having the third-highest kill total and third-highest assist total in the final game. Bwipo had the lowest kill participation and most deaths among Fnatic members in the series.
Split-push pressure pays dividends
May 15, 2018
Bwipo ended 1/3/7 as Fnatic took down Flash Wolves on Monday.
ANALYSIS
After picking up a decent CS lead in lane against Hanabi's Ornn, Bwipo found numerous assists fighting in early skirmishes. From there, he transitioned to a split-push role, which, while it handed him three deaths over the course of the game, was also crucial to Fnatic's victory. Bwipo took multiple turrets and inhibitors on his own, providing Fnatic with the map pressure they needed to take the game.
Poor timed engages in loss
May 14, 2018
Bwipo scored a 0/3/5 KDA on Sion in Fnatic's loss to Royal Never Give Up on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Bwipo was holding his own in the first half as he managed to build a small lead in CS. However, when it was time for Fnatic to start coordinating its teamfights, Bwipo was often not in sync with the rest of his teammates. Some poor engages cost him in terms of deaths and map pressure. Fnatic quickly began to unravel and lose control of the game, undoing its hard-fought 5,000 gold lead. Bwipo wasn't able to help much in the final stand as he was the first to fall in RNG's ace before plowing through the Nexus.
Underwhelming on Vladimir in loss
May 12, 2018
Bwipo earned a 0/1/1 KDA on Vladimir in his team's defeat against RNG.
ANALYSIS
Throughout Fnatic's grueling loss to Royal Never Give Up, Bwipo was almost completely silent. On Vladimir, he found himself in a favorable matchup against Cho'gath that allowed him to simply farm. Although the remainder of Fnatic played aggressively and was able to find openings for the team, Bwipo's lack of presence proved to be a critical error. Bwipo failed to find a way to make himself useful, falling flat in a crucial teamfight that allowed RNG to claim a 36-minute victory.
