Echo Fox
Split pushing fails short in losses
March 19, 2018
Huni scored a combined KDA of 2/7/7 in Echo Fox's two losses to 100 Thieves on Sunday.
In the final regular season game, Huni's Gnar was able to build a small lead in CS but that wasn't enough to keep Ssumday's Cho'Gath in check. As the game went late, Huni wasn't able to split push as 100 Thieves grouped up and took objectives by force, requiring him to try and help out in teamfights. However, none of the teamfights went well for Huni, a few assists was all he got for his efforts as he finished with a 0/4/4 KDA. For the tiebreaker game, Huni stuck with a split pushing champion but this time it was Shen, giving him the ability to make a bigger impact in teamfights. While Huni did help out more in teamfights, it still wasn't enough to stop 100 Thieves. Any cross map plays that Huni could make were easily countered and Echo Fox fell apart much quicker than it did in Game 1, losing its Nexus in just under 27 minutes.
No chance to carry
March 12, 2018
Huni ended with a 0/5/4 KDA as Echo Fox fell to CLG on Sunday.
On Trundle into the Cho'Gath of Darshan, Huni dutifully fulfilled his split-push role early on. He quickly amassed a CS lead that only grew as the game went on, and he took the first two turrets for Echo Fox by himself. However, the remainder of the game allowed him little opportunity to get much done in a side lane, and he simply wasn't all that effective in teamfights, leading to his poor KDA and Echo Fox's demise.
Struggled to make impact in late game fights
March 11, 2018
Huni scored a 0/2/2 KDA on Gnar in Echo Fox's loss to Clutch Gaming on Saturday.
The top lane matchup didn't go well for Huni's Gnar as he wasn't able to land enough poke damage to keep Solo in check. While Huni managed to build a small CS lead, he wasn't able to coordinate teamfights with the rest of Echo Fox in the mid game. Slowly the tide began to turn against Echo Fox in the late-game teamfights which lead to losing its gold and objective lead. Soon Echo Fox was pushed in base with its back against the Nexus Turrets and it decided to make a final stand. Huni was the last to fall as Clutch Gaming scored an ace before knocking down the Nexus.
Surprise Yasuo appearance pays off
February 18, 2018
Huni went 1/2/3 in Echo Fox's win over 100 Thieves on Saturday.
Huni brought out the fringe pick of Yasuo in this game and made great use of the champion. While he was taken down for first blood a few minutes in, Huni easily recovered from the setback to be a big part of this win. He essentially turned into another tank for his team and allowed them to easily jump in and out of fights with ease. It wasn't long before they took a couple key teamfights and marched down into 100 Thieves' base for the win.
Understands his power in win vs Liquid
February 12, 2018
Huni played well for Echo Fox on Sunday against Team Liquid, earning a 4/2/9 KDA.
Huni's Gangplank dominated the top lane early on, matching up surprisingly well against what should've been a lane counter in Gnar. Using his Cannon Barrage to grab assists across the map while opening up the top lane by splitpushing, Huni scaled into a monstrous late game threat. While Huni didn't land any highlight reel worthy plays, his constant pressure kept Liquid's carries out of teamfights, giving Echo Fox an easy avenue to take a 42-minute win.
Few slip ups in solid game
February 11, 2018
Huni went 3/3/7 as Echo Fox took down Golden Guardians on Saturday.
On Vladimir against the Camille of Lourlo, Huni's lane dominance was accelerated by early jungle pressure from Dardoch's Jax. By the five-minute mark, the two had three kills between them, and Huni quickly amassed a large CS advantage. He used this lead to Teleport into the bottom lane and pick up more kills for himself and his teammates, going 2/0/4 overall on Echo Fox's first six kills. There were a couple times when he tried to push his lead to aggressively and died for it, but Echo Fox's objective lead kept them well in control all game long.
Blind picked Gangplank struggles
February 4, 2018
Huni posted a 3/3/2 KDA on Gangplank as Echo Fox took its first loss of the split from Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday.
Huni's blind pick of Gangplank didn't work out well for him as Darshan's counter pick of Gnar beat him in lane. It wasn't the only losing lane as Echo Fox started to lose objectives across the Rift. While Huni eventually farmed his way back into being a damage threat, it wasn't enough to turn around teamfights. Echo Fox tried to take Elder Dragon late, but got aced in the teamfight over it and CLG quickly ended it after.
Split pushing monster on Gnar
January 22, 2018
Huni posted a 3/2/4 KDA on Gnar as Echo Fox took its second victory of the split against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
Huni's blind pick of Gnar paid off big when Solo decided to pick Ornn into it. After an early gank for first blood, Huni was able to easily run away with a gold lead. The second half was pretty easy for Huni as he pressure side lanes while the rest of Echo Fox took objectives and pushed. When Huni did join up for fights, he always walked away with a kill or assist. It was a fairly easy push for Echo Fox after it secured its second Baron power play of the game.
Dominates on his signature pick against FlyQuest
January 21, 2018
Huni earned a 4/0/6 KDA on Lucian in Echo Fox's victory over FlyQuest on Saturday.
From the start of the game, it was clear Huni was comfortable on his pick. Bullying the enemy Gangplank in lane, he quickly found an advantage for himself that he could translate to the rest of his team. Never stopping his dominating play, he joined skirmishes to quickly pick up kills with the rest of his team. Simultaneously, he created excellent sidelane pressure that allowed FOX to come out ahead of objectives. In the quick 29-minute game, he was able to participate in 66 percent of his team's kills without dying a single time.
Signs with Echo Fox
December 8, 2017
Huni will be leading the top lane for Echo Fox in the 2018 season, Jacob Wolf of ESPN reports.
After joining SKT for the 2017 season, the top laner is already on his way back to American soil to join Echo Fox for 2018. While his time with SKT may have been a bit shaky at times, Huni is still a quality top laner and should be a big help for Echo Fox for the new season. He'll be (officially) joined by Dardoch, Fenix, Altec, and Adrian for this new roster going into the newly franchised NA LCS.
Likely to leave SKT
November 24, 2017
Huni could be transferred to another organization, Inven Global reported on Friday.
SK Telecom T1 continues to make minor changes to its team after failing to win the World Championships for the first time since 2014. A former top laner for Fnatic and Immortals before joining SKT in 2016, ESPN's Jacob Wolf also reported on Friday that the top laner could be returning to Western soil, as Echo Fox is content to acquire Huni and is attempting to work out a transfer. Whether that move happens or not remains to be seen, but it seems like a given Huni will leave SKT after nearly a year with the organization.
SKT's second best player throughout the series
November 5, 2017
Huni posted a 6/5/8 KDA in SK Telecom T1's series loss to Samsung Galaxy on Saturday.
Huni put up a solid effort throughout the series, as shown by him having the only positive K/D ratio on his team. Game 1 as Gnar was not bad by any means, but SKT was forced into a tough position due to better macro play from Samsung. Game 2 was another decent showing from on the Yasuo pick, but one strong teamfight from Samsung essentially nullified any lead SKT had. Game 3 was a superb game by Huni, as he was a formidable force despite opting for a tank build on Trundle. Overall, he was SKT's second best player throughout the series and Worlds as a whole. If he can continue to improve and develop within the SKT system, his potential can bring him to the upper echelon of top laners in Korea.
Came up clutch when needed
October 30, 2017
Huni posted a 9/9/16 KDA in the series victory over Royal Never Give Up on Saturday.
Huni drafted to carry Game 1 as Gangplank, but couldn't find the opportunities to dominate teamfights since he was camped throughout the laning phase. Game 2 was a better showing for Huni, who posted a 5/2/3 KDA as Camille. Huni failed to find the same aggressive success as Camille in Game 3, posting a 0/1/0 KDA. The next two games saw the top laner lock Gnar, and he became a consistent lane bully as needed. In Game 5 Huni spontaneously engaged the final teamfight to seal RNG's fate, further showing his mental fortitude when a series goes the distance.
Provides consistent split-push threat throughout the entire series
October 20, 2017
Huni posted a 9/12/27 KDA in SK Telecom T1's 3-2 series victory over Misfits Gaming on Friday.
Huni played three games of Jayce (1, 3, 5), a game of Cho'Gath (2), and a game of Trundle (4). The SKT top laner kicked off the series with a perfect 5/0/7 showing as Jayce -- he did everything the team needed for a swift victory. The remaining games were much tougher for Huni and co, though. In the next two games, Huni turned from being a dueling threat to simply split-pushing due to strong early game pressure from Misfits. Huni's Trundle and Jayce play in the final two games were extremely important to SKT's victories. In Game 4, Huni pulled significant attention during his split-pushes, and frontlined for the team as needed. Huni's statline in Game 5 doesn't show that he consistently drew key cooldowns from Misfits, and completed a clutch Teleport to cap off the final teamfight of the game. Overall, Huni's performance wasn't beautiful. However, this series did show Huni's mental fortitude and willingness to play for the team's overall success. Huni was SKT's second best player throughout the series, and the team will need contributions like this to find continued success.
Backdoors SKT to victory
October 15, 2017
Huni tallied a 5/2/2 KDA in SKT's win over Cloud9 on Sunday at the 2017 World Championship.
Huni had a fun time dominating in his lane all throughout this series on Sunday. Impact couldn't really do much to stop Huni at any point in the game. Huni used his Jayce to pick up a double kill during a big fight in the mid game that kept SKT moving right along. He followed that up a few minutes later with a solo kill on Impact that furthered his lead in lane and gave him a 4,000 gold lead over the Cloud9 top laner. Huni put an exclamation point on this big game with a backdoor Nexus play that gave his team the fairly easy win.
