Echo Fox
Performed well on tank in the top lane
June 17, 2018
Altec scored a 4/1/5 KDA on Dr. Mundo in Echo Fox's win against FlyQuest on Saturday.
Altec got moved into the top lane for the first game of the Summer Split. He seemed well prepared for the move as he invaded early and laid down plenty of poke damage during the laning phase. When it came to the late game teamfights, Altec did just fine as he picked up about an equal number of kills and assists. It didn't take long for Echo Fox to close out this under 24-minute victory. With the success of this draft strategy, Echo Fox has just given their opponents another wrinkle to prepare for.
Roughed up pair of losses
March 19, 2018
Altec scored a combined KDA of 3/4/6 in Echo Fox's two losses to 100 Thieves on Sunday.
Altec was put on Caitlyn in both of the games against 100 Thieves but really wasn't a huge impact in either. In the final regular season game, Altec did he best to maintain lane dominance using Caitlyn's superior range but only managed to build a small CS lead. That lead wouldn't last for long as 100 Thieves sent multiple ganks into the bottom lane, quickly evaporating any type of control that Altec had. Soon Altec was forced to clear side lanes in order to keep up in damage with his counterpart during the teamfights. While Altec finished with most damage dealt in the game, it wasn't nearly enough to help Echo Fox break through 100 Thieves massive frontline in the key late game teamfights. Altec's Caitlyn performance in the tiebreaker game wasn't anywhere near as good as it was in Game 1. The bottom lane matchup left Altec trying to play catch up in the mid game but he wasn't able to buy enough time to CS his way back into relevancy. Echo Fox had no way to stop 100 Thieves as the gold gap continued to widen in the second half. Altec couldn't even secure a kill as Echo Fox got torn apart in its base before 100 Thieves took down the Nexus to claim the number one spot.
No way out
March 12, 2018
Altec finished off Echo Fox's Sunday loss to CLG with a KDA of 4/5/2.
Altec's Kog'Maw did fine for the most part on Sunday, but was put in a very trying position. Between his champion's inherent immobility, his team's meager frontline, and CLG's plethora of initiation tools, Altec was incredibly vulnerable, leading to his five deaths, tying for the game high. Still, he managed to keep his CS up, secured two-thirds of his team's kills, and participated in all of them, an admirable performance under the circumstances.
Blind pick Varus loses lane
March 11, 2018
Altec scored a 1/1/3 KDA on Varus in Echo Fox's loss to Clutch Gaming Saturday.
Altec's Varus got pretty high draft priority but very little help during the laning phase. Dardoch was mainly top side as Altec was slowly falling behind in CS in the bottom lane. Altec managed to stay relevant in teamfights but wasn't enough in the later fights. His lone death came from Echo Fox's final stand before Clutch Gaming knocked down the Nexus.
Pops off against 100 Thieves
February 18, 2018
Altec posted an incredibly 5/0/5 KDA in Echo Fox's win over 100 Thieves on Saturday.
Altec was playing great from start to finish in this game against 100 Thieves. His Tristana, along with Fenix's Zoe, were two of the biggest reasons why Echo Fox picked up this win. He moved well all across the map to secure kills with relative ease. He was especially strong in teamfights that allowed Echo Fox to easily keep rolling right through 100 Thieves. With him playing so well in conjunction with the rest of his teammates, Echo Fox continue to be one of the teams to beat in the NA LCS.
Ends on a high note
February 11, 2018
Altec finished off Echo Fox's Saturday victory over Golden Guardians with a KDA of 4/3/7.
Altec wasn't the biggest contributing factor to his team's win, and he shouldn't have been expected to be. As Ezreal, he was unable to do much other than farm early on, which he did just fine, and by the time he came online his teammates were far enough ahead that they did most of the carrying. However, he did get the chance to shine in the game's final teamfight, where he secured himself a quadra kill. This was a perfectly solid game from Altec, despite him being out of the spotlight for most of it.
Low impact in loss
February 4, 2018
Altec posted a 0/2/5 KDA on Tristana as Echo Fox lost to Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday.
Altec had an uneventful laning phase as both team's junglers focused on the top half of the Rift. Altec pretty much traded clearing the minions as neither duo could find a good engage. When Altec did join up for the teamfights, he wasn't able to deal out much damage and only walked away with assists. His only deaths came in crucial late teamfight, including the deciding skirmish where EF got aced.
Quiet performance in victory
January 22, 2018
Altec posted a 2/1/3 KDA on Ezreal as Echo Fox won against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
Altec got plenty of farming time in the bottom lane as the first half was quiet. Any of the 2-vs-2 skirmishes were fairly even and neither duo got jungle assistance. When it was time to join up for teamfights, Altec performed well before getting a bit greedy during EF's first Baron power play. It would be his only death of the game as EF swiftly put an end to CG's Nexus after securing a second Baron kill.
Decimates enemy team with Kog'maw
January 21, 2018
Altec earned a 7/0/7 KDA on Kog'Maw in his team's 29-minute victory over FLY on Saturday.
Playing against his former team, Altec had no trouble dismantling FlyQuest in his team's swift victory. Picking Kog'Maw, he found a lead early and rolled with it. Without any signs of slowing down, he quickly picked up kills left and right, joining skirmishes and playing aggressively. Despite playing so far forward, his positioning was superb, allowing him to skirt the edges of fights and deal insane amounts of damage. With FlyQuest having no reliable way to reach him, Altec participated in all but one of his team's kills, picking up half of them for himself in the process. His dominant performance secured a swift victory to start off the split for Echo Fox.
Signs on with Echo Fox
November 24, 2017
Altec will join Echo Fox, ESPN's Jacob Wolf reported on Friday.
Given Altec's contract with Team Dignitas expired following the organization's failure to be included in the NA LCS, the ADC was primed to move on to greener pastures. Altec split time with LOD throughout the Summer Split, sharing time at a nearly 60/40 clip despite posting the second-highest kill participation percentage (73.8 percent) of any ADC throughout the aforementioned split. He'll be joined by former Team Dignitas teammate Adrian and is expected to take over solo duties at the ADC spot.
Finds only two kills in series loss
September 13, 2017
Altec earned a miserable series KDA of 2/11/5 in his team's swift 3-0 defeat against FlyQuest.
Although Altec has consistently been a solid player on Dignitas, his series performance against FlyQuest was not indicative of that. Getting absolutely dominated in every game, his performance tanked throughout the series, allowing FlyQuest to run away with the victory. Although he was able to put up a decent performance during the first game of the series, he quickly faltered in the rest, only able to pick up a combined three assists without a single kill during the remainder. As a result, FlyQuest easily dominated with their snowballed bottom lane, allowing Dignitas to be defeated easily. With the losses, FlyQuest claimed the victory 3-0.
Unable to carry DIG past CLG
September 5, 2017
Altec ended DIG's 0-3 loss to CLG with a 5/7/9 combined KDA.
Altec used Tristana in the opening two games, finishing with a combined 4/4/1 KDA. He finished Game 1 with a 4/2/0 KDA, involved in four of eight kills and leading DIG with four kills. In Game 2, Altec ended with a 0/2/1 KDA, involved in only one of DIG's three kills. For the final game of the series, Altec used Xayah and earned a 1/3/8 KDA. He was involved in nine of 11 kills, picking up only one kill but tying Adrian for the highest assist total with eight.
Bounced back after poor Game 2 performance
August 7, 2017
Altec finished with a 8/7/22 KDA in Team Dignitas series victory against Team Liquid on Sunday.
In Game 1 Altec's Sivir got plenty of solo lane time early thanks to TL's bottom lane rotating into the top. When it was time to group up, Altec didn't secure many kills, but still walked away from teamfights with plenty of assists. In Game 2, Altec's Tristana failed to handle gank pressure early. Altec tried to play safe in the mid game to make up for his early deaths, but was too far behind to make much of an impact late. In Game 3 Altec's Varus handled Piglet's Vayne much better. He won some damage trades and took lane control after getting gank help. DIG took over late after a Baron power play and finished shortly after.
More solid performances throughout 2-1 series victory
July 30, 2017
Altec finished with a 9/2/15 KDA in Team Dignitas' 2-1 series victory against Immortals on Saturday.
Altec had a stellar 5/0/6 KDA performance on Caitlyn in Game 1. He didn't win lane, but still had dealt out plenty of damage in the teamfights late. DIG's frontline was much too tanky for IMT, allowing Altec to safely dole out headshots from the backline. In Game 2 Altec kept the laning phase pretty close, but didn't have much of an impact in teamfights throughout the second half. Altec had plenty of wave clear to defend turrets, but got cut off by Weaver's Walls late as IMT evened up the series. In Game 3 Altec easily ran up a lead in CS after securing a kill and assists during an early skirmish. Altec managed to freely Rocket Jump around fights racking up assists on his way to a 2/1/7 KDA.
Continues to look like an improvement
July 25, 2017
Altec went 8/10/13 as Dignitas fell 1-2 Sunday to Cloud9.
Altec has looked like an improvement over LOD ever since joining the starting roster a couple weeks ago, and this series was no exception. A lane kill onto Sneaky and an early skirmish in Game 1 put his Tristana out to a 1/0/3 start, and Altec pushed his lead beautifully. With a Nunu and Jayce alongside him to help with turret pushing, Altec decimated objectives and earned a 6/0/7 KDA in the blindingly fast 23-minute win. Unfortunately, Game 2 didn't go as well on Twitch. He got out to a quick CS lead, but one that was quickly neutralized, and he went 0/6/3 in the loss. Altec showed his lane dominance again in Game 3, using Kalista to find a kill onto Smoothie in the 2-vs-2. However, that's just about all he accomplished as Cloud9 finished off the series.
