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.
Does enough to help CLG past FlyQuest
September 11, 2017
Stixxay finished CLG's 3-1 win over FlyQuest with a 14/9/21 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay used Lucian in Game 1 to finish with a 4/3/3 KDA. He was involved in seven of 12 kills, finishing with CLG's second-highest kill total. In Game 2, Stixxay ended with a 5/3/7 KDA as Ashe. He was involved in 12 of 19 kills finishing one kill behind Darshan for the team lead. In Game 3, Stixxay ended with a 2/1/5 KDA as Xayah. He was involved in seven of 12 kills, finishing with his side's third-highest kill total. For the final game of the series, Stixxay used Caitlyn and finished with a 3/2/6 KDA. He was involved in only nine of 19 kills, finishing with CLG's third-highest kill total in the win.
Ties for series high kill total
September 5, 2017
Stixxay finished Saturday's sweep of DIG with a 15/4/13 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay ended Game 1 with an 8/1/4 KDA as Kog'Maw. He was involved in 12 of 18 kills, leading CLG with eight kills in Game 1. In Game 2, Stixxay earned a 3/1/3 KDA as Xayah. He was involved in only six of 14 kills, finishing with the third most kills on the team. In Game 3, Stixxay used Tristana to finish with a 4/2/6 KDA. He was involved in 10 of 19 kills, finishing with the third highest kill total and six assists in the final game.
Strong showing despite defeat
August 27, 2017
Stixxay earned a series KDA of 12/9/19 in his team's 0-3 defeat at the hands of IMT.
ANALYSIS
Starting things off with a decent performance, Stixxay slowly faltered in his team's loss against IMT. In Game 1, his showing on Xayah was excellent, shutting down his lane and bringing his team into the mid game with impressive standing. Unfortunately, being unable to shut down the entirety of the enemy team ended up biting Stixxay as he was focused, allowing IMT to take a victory in the back and forth Game 1 defeat. Game 2 went similarly as Stixxay had a decent performance on Xayah again but was heavily focused. Unable to find a lead, he had no jungle assistance, allowing IMT to take full control of the game. Eventually, this resulted in yet another defeat. Game 3 came around and Stixxay was clearly fatigued. With a poor showing on Xayah to end the series, he allowed Cody Sun's Kog'maw to take control of the game. Unable to deal enough damage in teamfights, this allowed IMT to take the game over completely, picking up a sub 30-minute win and closing out the series 3-0.
Tremendous Tristana
August 22, 2017
Stixxay ended CLG's 3-2 victory over NV on Sunday with an overall KDA of 28/7/24.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay played four out of five games on Tristana this series, and it was easy to see why. He absolutely excelled on the champion, not only making good use of his Rocket Jump resets (as well as showing good judgment as to when not to use them), but also estimating the damage on his ultimate perfectly, pairing the ability with one last auto attack to secure kills on multiple occasions. His combined KDA on the champion was 26/5/21, going 8/3/7 even in one of CLG's losses, and his paltry Jinx performance can be forgiven under the circumstances. Still, it remains to be seen how strong Stixxay is on other champions at the moment, which may be exploited by the remaining playoff teams.
Uneven performance
August 7, 2017
Stixxay finished CLG's sweep at the hands of TSM on Sunday with a 4/5/16 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay didn't manage to play up to his position during this series, as he never quite managed to carry. His Game 1 Ashe was a sore sight, managing five assists but not a single kill. Although his problems weren't necessarily all on his own, since CLG came up short as a team in that game. He stuck with Ashe for Game 2 and put himself towards the forefront of the game. He and Huhi managed to put out a ton of damage to keep CLG hanging in there throughout the game. His 4/3/11 performance was great and all, but that's not to say that he was playing flawlessly. In the late game, aphromoo hit a beautiful five-man knockup with Alistar and Stixxay didn't have any follow-up. Sure, neither did any other CLG member. But you'd think that his lane partner would have been the first to start pouring in the damage to try and win the fight and the game. Alas, he did nothing and they got nothing from the initiation and ended up losing the game. This will certainly need to be shored up a bit going into the playoffs.
Struggles on Jhin in series loss
July 31, 2017
Stixxay finished with a 7/7/14 KDA in Counter Logic Gaming's series loss to Phoenix1 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay started the series out with his best Jhin performance as he finished with a 5/1/8 KDA and didn't come close to that mark again. He started to run away with a lead after getting first blood as CLG's dominated its way to a series lead. In Game 2, things went south for Stixxay's Jhin early as he struggled to do much in skirmishes before being killed. Stixxay started to play safer the rest of the game and cut down on deaths, but his Deadly Flourishes and Curtain Call shots did little to stop P1. In Game 3 Stixxay struggled to win trades in the laning phase and started to fall behind as Arrow racked up kills in the mid game teamfights. Stixxay's long range contributions to teamfights helped, but he quickly ran out of space to run as P1 pushed to a series victory.
Shows Apollo how to carry in sweep
July 30, 2017
Stixxay finished CLG's sweep over EnVyUs on Saturday with a 10/4/12 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay was playing as his best self in this series against EnVyUs on Saturday. He played two of the power champions in the current meta of Tristana and Kalista, and he certainly showed everyone how to properly play these champions. While he may have gotten caught out a few times over the course of the series, he was playing on another level for the majority of the time. His skill and coordination with aphromoo was enough to push CLG towards the win.
Mediocre performance in series loss
July 18, 2017
Stixxay earned a 4/5/6 KDA in his team's defeat against Dignitas on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Starting things off on Varus, Stixxay fell behind early in the series and was ultimately unable to recover. After failing to find a lead in lane, he was put in a poor position due to his immobility and the enemy dive, resulting in him falling time and again in teamfights. As things progressed, he could not find a way back into the game, earning a 2/2/3 KDA in his team's defeat. Game 2 didn't go much differently as he made his way onto Tristana and once again fell behind. This time, the rest of his team fell behind even more than last game, resulting in a worse early game. Without anyway back into things, he was once again focused heavily resulting in numerous deaths. As a result, CLG was defeated in 29 minutes, losing the series 0-2.
Popped off on Kalista to close out series
July 15, 2017
Stixxay finished with a 13/3/13 KDA in Counter Logic Gaming's 2-0 series sweep against Flyquest on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay's Tristana fell behind in CS during Game 1 as he got bullied throughout the laning phase and opted to lane swap after losing the tier one turret. He made some bad Rocket Jumps into fights in the first half of Game 1, but started to have better positioning in the later teamfights. Most of Stixxay's kills and assists came from his Game 2 performance on Kalista where he finished with a 10/0/11 KDA. He and aphromoo got the Kalista/Thresh combo for bottom lane and dominated the 2-vs-2 early on. The teamfighting was one sided as CLG finished with 24 kills and only two deaths as a team. Stixxay had plenty of great Fate's Calls in those teamfights as he racked up a 87 percent kill participation.
Surprises with a Kennen pick against Team Liquid
July 4, 2017
Stixxay earned a series KDA of 17/1/9 in his team's domination over Team Liquid.
ANALYSIS
Starting the series off on his signature Ashe, Stixxay had no problem dominating lane and moving forward with his lead. Using his team's huge amount of crowd control, he forced skirmishes often and continually push his team's leads. In doing so, he allowed CLG to take full control of the map, picking up a huge number of towers and meaningful objectives. Participating in over half of his team's kills, his play was crucial to a 35-minute victory. He picked a surprise Kennen in Game 2 that paid off. Picking up nine kills out of his team's 17, he had no problem finding an early lead and dominating the entire game. Although he picked to splitpush, he found himself teamfighting more often than not, picking up kills left and right. Never slowing down, he had no problems taking an easy 30-minute victory, closing out the series 2-0.
Near deathless in series victory over Cloud9
July 4, 2017
Sitxxay finished CLG's 2-1 victory over C9 with a combined KDA of 11/1/13.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the entire series against Cloud9, Stixxay had a dominant performance. He started off the series on Tristana, picking up an early kill and running with it. After finding his lead, he had no problem pushing his advantage, quickly building double energy items and instantly winning fights. In just 35 minutes, he won back-to-back teamfights, closing out the game for his team. Game 2 didn't go quite as well for CLG but he still showed up. On Jhin, he boasted a 1/0/1 scoreline despite his team's shortcomings. Although they were defeated in 30-minutes he showed signs of life. This was crucial for the team as they moved into Game 3, resetting the momentum and dominating. With Stixxay on Ashe, he found an early lead and once again show up huge. Landing clutch arrows, he facilitated his team's victory in the game, engaging crucial fights and allowing his team to easily close things out. With a 31-minute victory, CLG secured the series victory 2-1 for themselves.
Up and down performance in series victory
June 26, 2017
Stixxay earned a series KDA of 10/5/12 in CLG's series victory against EnVy.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the series against EnVyUs, Stixxay had an inconsistent performance. He started off the series with a strong showing on Jhin, remaining deathless and showing up huge in teamfights for his team. Dealing massive damage, he was able to help his team secure fight victories and ultimately close out the game. He failed to repeat the performance in Game 2, picking Caitlyn and getting completely shut out. Although he was able to farm well, he couldn't find a single kill or assist in the defeat. Shaking off the defeat in Game 3, he picked Ashe and dominated from the very start. After finding a lead, he landed clutch arrows to initiate for his team and push their advantages. In doing so, the team was able to take a convincing game victory, closing out the series 2-1.
Finished without a kill in series loss
June 24, 2017
Stixxay finished with a 0/6/6 KDA in Counter Logic Gaming's series loss to Immortals on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay had a pretty rough series and it started with an 0/4/2 KDA performance on Caitlyn. The laning phase was going fine until multiple ganks got IMT's bottom lane duo an advantage. Stixxay decided to roam into the top lane early to get first turret but IMT was ready and secured the objective well before he could. He and CLG were on defensive most of Game 1 as its struggled to maintain vision control in its own jungle. Stixxay struggled to find safety in the teamfights late as CLG lost Game 1. In Game 2 Stixxay was on Ashe and while he improved his KDA he still finished without securing a kill. The laning phase was still rough as Stixxay struggled to keep even in CS. His accuracy with Enchanted Crystal Arrow was solid as CLG found plenty of picks throughout the midgame, but got little in objectives to show for it. CLG struggled to put together engages late as IMT dominated the teamfights and finished off the series.
Breaking out of traps with ease
June 12, 2017
Stixxay has an uber-efficient day as he went 10/4/30 KDA Saturday vs. Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
After playing a ton of Caitlyn thus far in 2017, it was clear Echo Fox wanted to keep the long ranged auto attacker out of Stixxay's hands. However, although EF was successful in making sure Stixxay never got to play Caitlyn, they failed in shutting down the veteran ADC's clean play. As the squishiest member of CLG, Stixxay managed to only die on average of 1.33 times per game vs EF while averaging 3.33 kills and 10 assists. Most impressive was his mastery of the new AD champion, Xayah. In Game 3 Stixxay landed multiple key roots that helped the game snowball. Simply put, EF had no answer for all the crowd control CLG presented, and Stixxay was big time contributor to this advantage.
