Quickly rebounds from loss in series win
September 16, 2018
Jankos earned a series KDA of 9/7/25 during his team's 3-1 series victory over FC Schalke 04.
ANALYSIS
Playing aggressively and controlled, Jankos was able to put up extremely impressive numbers during his team's series against Schalke 04. Starting things off on Sejuani, he was able to pick up every neutral objective while participating in all but one of his team's kills. Although he had a lackluster showing in the second game, getting shut down on Poppy, he was able to quickly recover in the next two games. Picking Skarner and Olaf respectively, he employed the strategy of running down the enemy carries, finding success left and right. While he continued to control objectives, he was able to force fights, giving up only two kills to the enemy team while taking every neutral objective on the map. As a result he was able to lead G2 Esports to a 3-1 series victory securing the team's spot at the 2018 World Championship.
Lacks early presence
August 25, 2018
6/8/16 was Jankos' KDA as G2 fell 3-0 to Misfits on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
G2 had a lot of problems throughout this series, but their early games were especially poor, with the exception of Game 2. This was largely due to Jankos' lack of map pressure, as his Gragas and Sejuani in the first two games didn't have sufficient early power. His Nocturne in Game 3 was a step up, to be sure, finding kills onto Sencux's Malzahar and some more in teamfights, but he wasn't able to be the first-blood king he's known for being, and it hurt G2's chances.
Persistence nets win
August 11, 2018
Jankos earned a 2/3/14 KDA on Sejuani during his team's victory over Unicorns of Love.
ANALYSIS
After starting off the game by picking up a few kills for his team, Jankos began to slow down. Thankfully for him, this would not last the entire game as he stepped things up again during the mid game. Consistently able to find his way onto the enemy team in fights, he brought G2 the openings the team needed to finally blow the game open. He never faltered, continuing to look for skirmishes whenever possible. The results were as expected with G2 beginning to take skirmish victories, focusing down the enemy team left and right and blowing the game open with ease. Thanks to his earlier objective control, Jankos was able to bring his team firmly into the lead, resulting in a 39-minute victory.
Unable to bring team lead
August 5, 2018
Jankos earned a 2/2/1 KDA on Nocturne during G2's loss against Fnatic.
ANALYSIS
Jankos started off with a massive early game performance on Nocturne against FNC that brought his team a distinct advantage. Just 10-minutes into the game, he found himself with three kills for his team. Unfortunately, these would be the only openings he found for his team for the entire game. As Fnatic began taking favorable teamfights, Jankos could not find a way to get his team into the swing of things. With his carries dying left and right, his initiations became useless. The result was Fnatic quickly taking over the game, getting full control of things with little to no effort. Without any ability to bounce back in the game, he sat by as his team was convincingly defeated in just 27 minutes.
A game to forget
July 29, 2018
0/6/1 was Jankos' KDA in G2's Saturday loss to Schalke 04.
ANALYSIS
Coming out of the game with twice the deaths of any other member of his team, it's crystal clear that Jankos had a rough go of it on Gragas on Saturday. He consistently failed to respect S04's jungle presence, stepping up too far forward to give up first blood and then several subsequent kills. Jankos was the primary reason Nukeduck's Zed was able to thrive, causing all sorts of problems for G2, and he did nothing that came close to redeeming himself.
Shines on support once again
July 21, 2018
Jankos' KDA read 2/0/11 as G2 took down Vitality on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Relegated to a support role once again as G2 opted to funnel gold onto Perkz's Taliyah, Jankos had a hell of a showing on Shen. He was everywhere he needed to be in the early game, creating many of G2's early kills alongside Perkz, and he even survived G2's failed dive in the top lane. He continued to be a force on the frontline as the game drew on, consistently landing superb Shadow Dashes onto key members of Vitality.
Poor jungling results in loss
July 14, 2018
Jankos earned a 3/5/0 KDA on Kindred during his team's defeat at the hands of Misfits.
ANALYSIS
Although he claimed all three of his team's kills during their defeat, Jankos' play left much to be desired. After giving up first blood, he struggled to create any sort of a meaningful impact in the early game, giving up objectives and simply grouping with his team to abuse their power spikes. Though he was able to pick up the occasional kill, he could not capitalize on them nor assist his team in doing so. As the game got out of hand, he did little more than delay his team's deaths with his ultimate. Unable to shred the strong tank line of Misfits, he found himself victim to the enemy team's crowd control, allowing Misfits to turn the game on its head and take an unexpected victory.
Flawless jungling nets victory
July 8, 2018
Jankos earned a 8/0/9 KDA on Trundle during his team's swift victory over Team Liquid.
ANALYSIS
Although it took him a few minutes to get things going, Jankos had a flawless performance against Team Liquid. Getting off an early gank, he was able to help his team start building up a lead early. He immediately set his sights on neutral objectives, helping to buff his team at every opportunity. He then began isolating a single member of the enemy team. Seeing that the opposing top laner was going to be easy to kill, Jankos focused him time and again in order to pick up swift kills and quickly snowball his team's lead. Once ahead, Jankos simply had a stranglehold on the game. Finding the enemy team caught out over and over again, he was able to facilitate his team picking up multiple teamfight wins. In the meantime, he continued to focus on objectives, continuously picking up dragons and finally a Baron. With a huge lead, he had no trouble forcing Team Liquid to fight his team, giving G2 a teamfight victory and closing out the game in just 26 minutes.
Convincing play nets victory
July 8, 2018
Jankos earned a 8/2/11 KDA on Nocturne during his team's 45-minute victory over 100 Thieves.
ANALYSIS
From the very start of the game, Jankos had a strong performance that ultimately resulted in his team's victory. Ganking early and ganking often, he helped snowball his carries to early leads. Despite giving up an early dragon to the enemy team, he found leads elsewhere, controlling the game as soon as he hit level 6. Being a constant threat, he allowed the rest of his team the room they needed to take over the game completely. After bringing his team a macro lead through towers and ganks, Janks began to take over neutral objectives. Building up buffs for his team, he paved the way for the rest of his team to dominate in teamfights. As the game went late, Jankos' Nocturne ultimate was critical to his team's success. Allowing his team to isolate a crucial target allowed G2 to win back-to-back teamfights. As a result of his strong play, G2 found themselves with a 45-minute victory.
Shreds enemy in one-sided victory
June 19, 2018
Jankos earned a 2/0/10 KDA on Trundle throughout his team's victory over ROCCAT.
ANALYSIS
From the very beginning, it was clear that Jankos was the better jungler. Able to assist in picking up First Blood, he set his team up for success from the get go. He began playing aggressively after, outfarming his opponent and quickly joining his team. Thanks to Jankos' excellent play, his team dominated a skirmish in the top lane, securing four easy kills and snowballing ahead with ease. From then on, the rest of the game was simple with Jankos moving alongside his team quickly decimating the enemy team and structures. Not needing to focus on objectives, he simply walked forward with his team. After winning a final fight, he helped secure a 24-minute victory for his team.
Sacrificial scorpion
March 4, 2018
Jankos ended G2's win over Giants on Saturday with a 0/4/6 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Jankos' KDA on Skarner looks pretty rough at first glance, but it certainly doesn't tell the full story. Jankos managed to find an assist on first blood, and was important in late-game fights as well. In the mid game, Giants' peaking composition was often able to win fights, but in many of these they only found one kill and were left too injured to capitalize on it, giving G2 crucial time to scale up. Jankos was often the casualty of these exchanges and thus ended with a game-high four deaths. However, when G2's carries hit late-game status, Jankos needed only stand in front of them for G2 to take the game.
Beats out Wadid for team-high assist total
February 23, 2018
Jankos finished G2's win over ROCCAT with a 0/0/8 KDA as Zac.
ANALYSIS
Jankos ended the game involved in eight of 10 kills, leading G2 in assists. He was unkillable in the game, repeatedly setting up engages throughout the game to help G2 dominate teamfights. Jankos tied Perkz for the team-high kill participation after being involved in 80 percent of his team's kills.
Perfect engages outclass Gilius
February 16, 2018

ANALYSIS

After a week of smack talk from Gilius, Jankos proved to be way out of his opponents league en route to a near perfect win over Vitality.
Skarner pick doesn't pay off
January 26, 2018
Jankos finished Friday's loss to GIA with a 1/5/5 KDA as Skarner.
ANALYSIS
The surprising Skarner pick didn't pay off, but Jankos did finish the game involved in all but one G2 kill. He led the team with five assists, while tying for the third-highest kill total with one. Unfortunately, every time Jankos went to use Impale, Targamas used Devour to cancel Jankos' ultimate, saving Giants members repeatedly.
Unkillable during G2 debut
January 19, 2018
Jankos ended G2's opening day win over Misfits with a 3/0/13 KDA as Sejuani.
ANALYSIS
Jankos was unkillable during Day 1 of the European LCS as he helped G2 take down Misfits during his team debut. Jankos was involved in 16 of G2's 18 kills, tying Wadid for the team high with 13 assists. Jankos was excellent on Sejuani, locking down multiple members of Misfits in teamfights and pairing well with Wunder in the frontline, allowing his carries to safely deal damage.
