Unable to defend team in backdoor defeat
July 31, 2018
Zven earned a 0/1/4 KDA on Ezreal during his team's loss against FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Although Zven had a strong performance against FLY, it wasn't enough to keep his team from being defeated. After failing to find a lead in the early game, he bounced back through skirmishes in the mid game to bring things back into his favor. This ended up still not being enough, however, as FLY opted to go for an aggressive backdoor play. Although Zven saw this coming, he was not able to recall due to his team's call not to. Zven managed to recall, but not in time to defend his base. Try as he might, he died alone as the rest of his team wasn't present. The result was a 32-minute victory for the enemy team.
Couldn't keep up the pressure
July 23, 2018
Zven earned a 3/2/3 KDA on Varus during his team's loss against OpTic.
ANALYSIS
Although he started the game off with a decent showing against OpTic, Zven could not keep up the tempo, resulting in his team's eventual defeat. After finding an early kill in lane, he began slowing down as the rest of his team failed to capitalize. Try as he might, he could not bring the rest of his team in line with his position to take kills. As a result, TSM began to lose the grip on the lead they had built up. In the final pair of fights in the game, Zven tried to skirt around the edge to deal damage. Unfortunately, he was focused heavily due to his short range. As a result, TSM was defeated in back-to-back fights, allowing OpT to bounceback and claim victory.
Damage carry on Heimerdinger falls short
July 15, 2018
Zven scored a 2/4/4 KDA on Heimerdinger in Team SoloMid's loss to 100 Thieves.
ANALYSIS
The laning phase went well for Zven as he and Mithy kept constant pressure on 100 Thieves. Being constantly pushed in earned Zven first blood and first turret gold, freeing him up to rotate for more objectives. However, the rotations didn't work out too well as Zven struggled in the skirmishing throughout the mid game. While Heimerdinger's turrets laid down plenty of damage, it was nearly enough to handle 100 Thieves. TSM couldn't do much after a desperate attempt to stop a Baron attempt resulted in it being aced.
Picks up huge kills in win
July 1, 2018
Zven went 8/0/5 in TSM's win over Cloud9 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Things might have looks dire for some time, but Zven never stopped trying to push this team ahead at any point in the game. His Varus was a force to be reckoned with and C9 didn't seem to have any answer at all. His three kills in a mid game fight managed to keep Cloud9 from completely running away with the game, which was all Mithy needed to help Grig steal the Baron and close out the win.
Brings the damage despite loss
June 23, 2018
Zven went 4/2/1 during TSM's loss at the hands of Clutch Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
While Zven struggled as much as his teammates did in the end, he was the sole reason they had any chance of turning things around during teamfights. His Ezreal brought the damage in droves as TSM fought to keep their heads above water in any given teamfight. While Clutch eventually outlasted TSM due to have more options at hand during those fights, Zven certainly didn't just roll over and die. Still, he's going to need a bit more help in the future if TSM wants to try and avenge its early exit from the Spring Playoffs earlier this year.
Solid damage in victory
February 26, 2018
Zven went 1/0/7 in TSM's win over OpTic on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
While Zven's 1/0/7 scoreline looks somewhat supportive, it's only because his teammates were doing so well. Zven was still an important part of TSM's teamfight damage and control, and was on point with his skillshots throughout the game. He may not have had the highlight plays his solo laners did, but he still played the game very well, ending with the highest farm in the game -- over 400 in just 34 minutes.
Struggled to supply damage in loss
February 19, 2018
Zven posted a 0/3/0 KDA on Tristana in Team SoloMid's loss to Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Zven held his own in the laning phase but really couldn't get much done in the mid and late game teamfights. He did his best to deal out damage but wasn't always able to safely. Clutch Gaming had plenty of abilities to lock down Zven for deletion, making the teamfights difficult to navigate. Team SoloMid was slowly pushed back into its base and could do little to stop the Baron Empowered split push.
Perfect game for TSM's AD carry
February 12, 2018
Zven went 5/0/8 in TSM's win Sunday over CLG.
ANALYSIS
Zven got the dream start to the game on Ezreal, as there was no action whatsoever early on. This meant that when a fight finally did break out at 18 minutes, he was ready with his early power spikes, able to keep his distance with Iceborn Gauntlet and stay healthy despite how close the fight was. From there on, he continued to be a key part of TSM's teamfight damage, as he was the only member of his team to find perfect kill participation, and also went all game without dying.
Solid play eventually yields win
January 28, 2018
Zven finished TSM's win over OpTic on Saturday with a 3/0/7 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Zven took his cues from his mid laner this game, playing a long-range champion in Ezreal and putting consistent damage at a safe distance. As a result, TSM eventually managed to take the final fight of the game, but the team is going to need someone to take on the role of playmaker in the future.
Subpar first week in NA LCS
January 21, 2018
Zven closed out TSM's Week 1 slate with a 1/2/4 KDA in a loss to FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
One half of the highly touted bottom lane duo from Europe continues to struggle in North America. Playing on the Kog'Maw, his team simply seemed unable to play around him and protect him well enough to pop off in the late game. While MikeYeung and Bjergsen picked off WildTurtle with impunity, Zven couldn't seem to build this into much of a lead in lane. He and Mithy need to work on their synergy in a hurry or they could run out of rope in the highly competitive NA LCS.
Strong start falls apart
January 21, 2018
Zven went 0/2/0 in TSM's loss to Team Liquid on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Zven was brought onto the TSM roster this season to replace Doublelift, meaning that TSM should've been expecting to win the bot lane in this game. Early on, this seemed to be the case, as Zven's Kalista and support Mithy on Alistar found some favorable trades and took a CS lead. However, after the duo was tower dove, it all fell apart, both for the bot lane and for TSM as a whole. Zven didn't get much of a chance to really play in this game, and will look to prove he's worth his roster slot in the coming matches.
Joins TSM as the new starting AD Carry
November 24, 2017
Zven joins TSM after a strong 2017, according to a post on TSM's website.
ANALYSIS
TSM's decision to release Doublelift will remain controversial with fans, but the switch to Zven has to be seen as an upgrade in the long run. Zven has shown his skill alongside lane partner mithy time and time again in Europe, and is a great deal younger than Doublelift. Sure, this move seems like a sidegrade, but considering TSM's previous bot lane consistently struggled internationally, a change certainly won't hurt TSM's dream of doing anything noteworthy at Worlds.
Announces free agency
November 1, 2017
Zven is now a free agent and is fielding offers from other teams, the player announced on Twitter Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
A part of one of the best bot lane duos in Europe, Zven, along with his lane partner, Mithy, have been given permission to field offers immediately. Their contracts aren't up until November 10, but the team is allowing this to give the players a chance to get a jump on the process of possibly signing with a new team. The video released by the team leaves open a door for the players to stay with the team after all, but they will certainly see what is available elsewhere. With new teams coming into the NA LCS with franchising, that could be a plausible destination for either of these players.
Aggressive positioning can't be punished
October 13, 2017
Zven ended G2's upset win over RNG on Friday with a 5/0/4 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Zven played Tristana in this game, and while he was pushed in early after a bot lane gank from Mlxg, once he got out of the laning phase he was fantastic. With Trick and Perkz having gotten G2 a sizable advantage, and with a Lulu by his side, Zven played fearlessly, dishing out heaps of damage without ever dying thanks to the multiple layers of defense he'd been provided with. G2 gave RNG its first loss in under 28 minutes.
Doesn't stay alive long enough to carry
October 13, 2017
Zven used Kog'Maw during Friday's loss to Samsung, earning a 1/3/1 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Zven was unable to scale into a threat on the Kog'Maw, as Samsung dominated the game. He was involved in half of G2's kills, tying for the second-highest kill total with only one kill. Zven was focused heavily in fights, resulting in the second-highest death total in the game.
