Echo Fox
Cannot bring his carry back into things
September 16, 2018
Smoothie earned a series KDA of 2/13/10 during Echo Fox's 0-3 loss at the hands of TSM.
ANALYSIS
Much like his lane partner, Smoothie had an unfortunate performance against TSM that resulted in his team falling 3-0 in the series. Throughout each game he struggled in lane, doing little more than staying alive. On the other hand, his opponents were making moves around the map, securing vision and objective control to take over. As the series progressed, Smoothie tried desperately to mimic the enemy bottom lanes performance but it simply never happened. Doing little more than delaying his team's deaths in the final two games, Smoothie could not bring his team an opening, allowing TSM to close out the series 3-0.
Near deathless in victory
September 14, 2018
Smoothie finished his team's 3-0 series sweep over Clutch Gaming with a KDA of 1/3/27.
ANALYSIS
During Echo Fox's dominant series sweep over Clutch Gaming, Smoothie was able to put up an extremely impressive performance. Starting things off on Alistar, Smoothie helped his AD Carry dominate lane and transition seamlessly into the teamfighting phase. Putting up huge initiations, he was able to bring his team back-to-back skirmish wins to secure Game 1. The next two games saw Smoothie picking Braum and playing a mix of reactive and initiation play. Time and again he was able to help his team start skirmishes and end them quickly. Providing huge amounts of crowd control, his play was crucial to his team's success. Simultaneously controlling vision, he was able to secure objectives, allowing Echo Fox to find the tools necessary to claim success. As a result, Echo Fox secured the series victory 3-0.
Initiations not enough in loss
August 27, 2018
Smoothie earned a series KDA of 0/9/32 during his team's series loss to Team SoloMid.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie had a decent performance during his team's loss against Team SoloMid. Playing initiators for much of the series, he was unable to keep up necessary pressure to take over Team SoloMid. After a slow start to the series, he began to find the necessary fights for his team, allowing Echo Fox to take Game 2 and Game 3 in the series. Despite this momentum, Smoothie struggled to keep his team on the same page moving into the final games of the series. Though he was able to find initiations, he could not stop the bleeding from across the map as his team found themselves at a disadvantage. Try as he might, massive teamfights in Game 5 went the way of Team SoloMid, giving up the series victory 3-2 in the process.
Joins Echo Fox
July 25, 2018
Smoothie is the newest member of Echo Fox's new-look roster, the team announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
After being initially reported by Jacob Wolf of ESPN Esports, Smoothie's move to Echo Fox has been confirmed by the team. With Echo Fox somewhat struggling thus far in the Summer Split, they have decided to make widespread changes to the roster. Smoothie is part of the moves, as he comes in to replace the set to be released Adrian in the bottom lane where he will be joined by new AD carry Lost. Time will tell if this move will benefit Echo Fox in the long run.
Back on starting lineup against TSM
July 1, 2018
Smoothie put together a 1/3/10 KDA in Cloud9's return to the lineup on Saturday in his team's loss to TSM.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie went with Morgana in this one and looked good enough for the most part. He was helping C9 win the bot lane matchup for most of the game, but a few rough deaths derailed things a bit in this lane. More than that, though, C9 was ultimately undone by a clutch Baron steal from TSM. Smoothie looked strong enough after not playing with his team for the first four games of the split. This is certainly a performance they can build on.
Starting out on the bench for Cloud9
June 13, 2018
According to a YouTube video on the team's official channel, Smoothie will not be starting this weekend.
ANALYSIS
Often touted in past splits as the best support player in North America, it's hard to believe that Smoothie will not be starting this weekend, replaced by newcomer Zeyzal of the C9 Academy team. In the video, team owner Jack Etienne and coach Reapered argued that the move is in the team's best interest, but it's difficult to see the new roster outperforming the old in terms of potential. The two indicated that the old players would need to earn their spots back, but it remains to be seen just how long the veterans will remain on the bench.
Questionable engages
March 19, 2018
Smoothie ended Cloud9's loss to FlyQuest with a KDA of 2/5/6 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Charged with playing Alistar in this game, Smoothie's engagements needed to be rock solid if Cloud9 wanted any chance of getting onto WildTurtle's Kog'Maw through four tanks. Unfortunately, they were less than amazing. In one particularly embarrassing moment, Smoothie Flashed over a wall only to die before landing any real crowd control. The rest of his engages weren't this poor, but they weren't the stellar fight starters Cloud9 desperately needed.
Early miscues come back to haunt him
March 4, 2018
Smoothie tallied a 0/4/11 KDA as Leona in Cloud9's loss against Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie opted for the playmaking Leona in this series, but could never manage to really give his team an edge in this loss. He missed an early ability that could have secured another early game kill, but Sneaky cleaned up his mess with three kills in the first 13 minutes. As things progressed, however, he and Sneaky started to get picked apart by the powerful Stixxay, who scaled into the late game and carried CLG to a surprising win.
Denied Call of the Forge God throughout win
February 26, 2018
Smoothie's Braum finished with a 0/0/8 KDA in Cloud9's victory against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The laning phase was uneventful for Smoothie until Cloud9 started to rotate into the bottom lane after the 10-minute mark. After C9 built a small lead, it set a very fast tempo, quickly splitpushing objectives while CG struggled to coordinate its defense. Whenever Solo's Ornn used Call of the Forge Gods, Smoothie was ready to block it with Unbreakable which took away one of Clutch Gaming's best engage tools. Cloud9's teamfight dominance let it quickly push to victory after securing a Baron kill. Smoothie collected plenty of assists during the skirmishes in the second half to finish with a solid 67 percent kill participation.
Great use of Devour in comeback win
February 11, 2018
Smoothie went 1/1/10 in Cloud9's win over FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Choosing Tahm Kench in this series, Smoothie managed to keep his teammates alive extremely well. Without his expert uses of Devour throughout this game, a Cloud9 comeback wouldn't have been possible. By keeping his team alive, he prevented FlyQuest from growing into even more of a monster in the mid game. With the team kept in check, Jensen had enough time to activate beast mode and drag Cloud9 across the finish line for their seventh win of the split.
Decent showing on Alistar in victory over OpTic
February 5, 2018
Smoothie earned a 3/2/5 KDA during his team's victory over OpTic on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Although the rest of his team had a stellar performance against OpTic, Smoothie's performance was slightly less impressive. Being caught out of position at times, he racked up twice the deaths of anyone else on his team; though this doesn't detract from his good plays during the game. Hitting key targets in fights with his combo, he was able to simultaneously engage onto the enemy team while peeling for his carries. As a result, the rest of Cloud 9 had no trouble controlling the game, earning a 36-minute victory.
Cows Clutch Gaming
February 5, 2018
Smoothie went 0/3/5 in Cloud9's Sunday win over Clutch Gaming.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie had a remarkable performance on Alistar from start to finish, beginning with his early roam to trap LirA in the jungle and secure first blood for his team. He quickly followed up with a second roam to the mid lane for another C9 kill, and his mid-to-late game was equally impressive. He found a number of solid engagements for Cloud9, and although he went down a couple times towards the end, it wasn't consequential enough to tarnish his performance.
Waltzes his way to victory
January 28, 2018
Smoothie went 1/0/10 on Taric during Cloud9's win against 100 Thieves on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie lived up to his name in this game, playing smoothly from start to finish. With most of the action in this game happening up in the top lane, it's no surprise that he and Sneaky managed to end the game unscathed. Still, this bot lane duo is playing like butter thus far and should help Cloud9 to wins all season.
Quiet until the late game in victory
January 21, 2018
Smoothie finished with a 2/0/7 KDA on Braum in Cloud9's win against Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
There wasn't much of a chance for Smoothie and Sneaky to take over during the laning phase. Despite plenty of skirmishing in the bottom lane, Smoothie took a 0/0/0 scoreline late into the matchup. He was taking part in a lot of the skirmishing but sadly didn't pick up any assists until after 29 minutes in. However, Smoothie provided some crucial crowd control to prevent CLG from disengaging as C9 began to take over teamfights. After ripping apart CLG in back-to-back teamfights, which included an ace, C9 took his first win of the 2018 season.
Can't out shield Meiko
October 16, 2017
Smoothie used Janna during Sunday's loss to EDG, earning a 0/4/5 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie was unable to match Meiko's shielding during the one-sided loss to EDG. He was involved in five of six C9 kills, leading the team with five assists. C9's loss to EDG hurts their chances of qualifying in second place, but they remain in control of their own destiny as long as they can beat ahq.
