Misuses abilties in loss
February 19, 2018
Pobelter managed just a 1/3/7 KDA in Liquid's upset loss at the hands of the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Despite being on the strong mid laner of Corki, Pobelter was simply unable to do anything in this game against the Guardians. He started off my misusing his Summoner spells, leading to this first death. That basically set the tone on what kind of game this would be, as he and the rest of his team were simply shut down at every moment in a surprising show of strength from the Golden Guardians.
Struggles to be relevant in loss vs Echo Fox
February 12, 2018
Pobelter posted a KDA of 1/4/5 in Liquid's Sunday loss to Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter's Ryze couldn't do much throughout the game thanks to a great draft from Echo Fox. FeniX's Cassiopeia prevented Pobelter from popping off in the early game too much, keeping Pobelter in check for the most part despite Pobelter gaining an early lead. Come late game teamfights, Pobelter was near useless, despite having items, kept in check by Adrian's Braum while the rest of Liquid's damage couldn't follow him up. Ending with a 1/4/5 KDA looked bad for sure, but Pobelter's struggles weren't entirely his fault as Liquid as a team couldn't keep up with Echo Fox.
Carries Liquid to big win
February 5, 2018
Pobelter carried Liquid to a win vs FlyQuest on Saturday with a 10/1/3 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter's Corki popped off in a huge way against FlyQuest, despite receiving constant jungle pressure early in the game. Mechanically outplaying ganks with ease gave the rest of Liquid the opening to get ahead, which then got funneled back into Pobelter in the form of kills. Once Pobelter got rolling, Corki's magic damage crits and constant poke shredded through FlyQuest, with P.O.B ending the game with a whopping 24,400 damage dealt to enemy champions, over 10,000 more damage than the second highest total in the game. Pobelter's campaign to prove himself as an elite mid laner in the West certainly picked up steam here, with Pobelter's only death coming from a game-ending Nexus dive, leading to a 10/1/3 KDA and lightning-fast Liquid win.
Pops off on Azir in swift victory
February 5, 2018
Pobelter earned a 8/0/4 KDA on Azir in Team Liquid's win against the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter had a dominant Azir performance against the Golden Guardians. He received help just in time during to turn a gank against him into a double kill. He continued to rake in kills and assists as he rotated around the map to help knock down objectives. Pobelter's efforts earned him 100 percent kill participation and most damage dealt to champs in game.
Mid lane monster
January 21, 2018
Pobelter finished with a 4/2/6 KDA in Team Liquid's win over OpTic Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
It was painfully clear who the better mid laner was in this game, as Pobelter simply did whatever he wanted all game long. This gave Liquid a big advantage to use all across the map. Whereas OpTic never seemed able to capitalize on any advantages, Liquid knew how to do it with ease. With a roster full of talent, this Liquid team looks poised to make some major waves in the NA LCS.
Sets up team for success
January 21, 2018
Pobelter went 2/1/7 as Team Liquid triumphed Saturday over TSM.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter took the simple tools of Malzahar and made the most out of them in this game, roaming first top and then bottom to pick up first blood and then grab three more kills for his team. His ultimate continued to be of great use as TL relentlessly pushed their advantage, ending the game 11 kills to one at 28 minutes.
Slated to start per reports
November 20, 2017
Pobelter expected to start for Team Liquid, according to ESPN's Jacob Wolf.
ANALYSIS
Once upon a time, a young Pobelter was slated to start for Team Curse, until a deal went sour and cast Pobelter's career into doubt. Ever since then, Pobelter has racked up NA LCS finals appearances, one successful showing with CLG and, more recently, one unsuccessful outing with Immortals. Coming into the new season, it has been announced that Pobelter will start for Team Liquid, which shouldn't come as much of a shock. With the likes of Goldenglue and Mickey showing problems with consistency throughout their respective tenures as starting mid laner. Is the future bright for Liquid? It's hard to say, but they could do a lot worse than Pobelter, and it gives Pobelter a unique opportunity to add on to his legacy by taking a previously bottom-tier team and make it into a top-tier threat.
Acquired by Team Liquid
November 18, 2017
Pobelter has been acquired by Team Liquid, Jacob Wolf of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
With Immortals being denied entry into the newly franchised NA LCS for the 2018 season, the fates of the Immortals players were a bit uncertain. It's now been revealed, however, that Pobelter, along with Xmithie, Cody Sun, and AnDa, have been acquired by Team Liquid. At the moment, it is not clear whether Pobelter will actually start for the team come January. The team will assess whether it will go with Pobelter or current mid laner, Mickey, with the possibility of selling Pobelter's contract to another team still on the table.
World Champion hula-hooper
October 13, 2017
Pobelter disappointed against FNC by going 1/3/8 in a tough loss on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter opted to play the relatively safe mid-lane champion of Orianna. The stalwart in the mid lane for IMT has seen better days, as he was off from the get-go. The strength of Orianna is her wave clear, and the game-changing potential of her ultimate. However, instead of landing soul-crushing Shockwaves, Pobelter instead was more adept at making a hula-hoops appear on the screen. At critical moments he whiffed, which is never going to allow a team to advance on the Worlds stage. Additionally, his build was a bit stunted as it focused mostly on magic penetration versus a composition that only had one champion focusing on magic resist, which ultimately meant Pobelter's burst potential was limited.
Expertly baits the enemy to secure victory
October 6, 2017
Pobelter earned a 2/1/3 KDA on Taliyah in his team's victory over Fnatic./
ANALYSIS
Although Immortals found themselves on the backfoot against Fnatic for much of the game, Pobelter never faltered. Staying collected, he was able to lead his team into the late game, trading objectives and keeping sights on the victory. This paid off expertly as Pobelter baited Rekkles in at 49-minutes, picking up a free kill and following it up on the enemy support immediately after. As a result, Immortals was able to come back and claim victory in the game, despite being down a decent amount of gold.
Team high kill total
October 5, 2017
Pobelter used Ryze during Immortals' Thursday loss to Longzhu, ending with a 4/2/3 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter had a fairly good game, as he finished involved in 70% of his team's kills. He led Immortals with four kills and managed three assists. He scaled fairly well on the Ryze, but struggled to truly carry as Longzhu controlled teamfights and eventually took the game.
Outclassed and outshined
September 3, 2017
Pobelter's scoreline read 10/13/17 overall at the end of IMT's 1-3 loss to TSM on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter didn't get off to the hottest start this series, as he went a mere 1/4/2 on Galio after falling behind in lane. Even in the Game 2 win, with five mid bans thrown at Bjergsen, Pobelter wasn't able to win lane, and took three deaths, more than anyone on his team bar Olleh's frontline Tahm Kench. Pobelter did farm very well in Game 3 on Corki and managed to nearly win his team a huge fight with a flank onto Doublelift, but unfortunately, this wasn't sufficient for a win. In Game 4, Pobelter was back to mediocrity, as he failed to accomplish much of anything on Lucian, participating in only 25 percent of his team's kills.
Controlled play nets victory
August 27, 2017
Pobelter earned a series KDA of 22/8/17 throughout IMT's 3-0 series sweep against CLG.
ANALYSIS
Starting the series off with two clean games on Cassiopeia, Pobelter snowballed his team ahead in this series. Storming into the thick of it, he found leads in both games with ease, dominating lane and quickly moving around the map to extend his advantage to the rest of the team. This proved to be extremely successful in both games as things went late and he dictated the pace of the game through teamfights. Without being focused, he had no trouble bringing his team two convincing wins, starting off the series on a high note. Game 3 saw a different pick for Pobelter, yet he still had a decent amount of success. Picking Lucian, he was able to bully his lane and keep his composure as the rest of the map dominated. With several convincing teamfight victories, he helped his team close out the game in 28 minutes, closing out the series 3-0.
Impactful roams with Weaver's Wall throughout series
August 5, 2017
Pobelter earned a 14/2/14 KDA as Immortals swept Team EnVyUs on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter put together a pretty textbook performance on Taliyah in the series against EnVy. In Game 1 he easily won lane after picking up assists in an early teamfight before running away with a CS and experience lead in lane. Pobelter then helped out the side lanes by roaming when needed by using Weaver's Wall quickly make it to fights. In Game 2 Pobelter didn't do as well in the laning phase, losing some early trades, but he regained composure with a little assistance. Weaver's Wall played a bigger role in IMT's Game 2 victory as Pobelter used it to zone EnVy away from objectives. IMT quickly snowballed a gold lead in the second half to finish off the series with under an hour of total gameplay.
Strong Taliyah play extends series, falls short in Game 3
July 30, 2017
Pobelter earned a 13/6/14 KDA in Immortals' series loss to Team Dignitas on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter's winning streak on Corki came to an end in Game 1 against Syndra. While Pobelter managed to run up a CS lead in lane, he struggled to get damage on the right targets in teamfights late. DIG's frontline was too big as Pobelter couldn't get past them in the late as it sieged through IMT's base. In Game 2 Pobelter had an impressive 9/2/7 KDA performance on Taliyah. Pobelter made good use of Weaver's Wall throughout the contest and aided IMT's siege, laying down nice walls that held off DIG while knocking down turrets. In Game 3 Pobelter couldn't repeat his performance on Taliyah as he finished with a 2/2/6 KDA. Pobelter did his best to kite in and out of teamfights but often got caught and killed by Kled's Chaaaaaaaarge!!!. Pobelter's efforts were good enough to earn him 100 percent kill participation, but not enough for IMT to pull off the win.
