Opens the series before being subbed
February 28, 2018
Mlxg played the first two games of Wednesday's 2-1 win over VG, earning a 7/5/13 KDA.
Mlxg ended Game 1 with a 5/3/10 KDA as Camille. He was involved in 15 of 18 kills, tying Uzi for the team-high kill participation while earning the game's second-highest kill and assist totals. In Game 2, Mlxg used Jax and finished with a 2/2/3 KDA. He was involved in five of 11 kills, tying for the second-highest kill total, but only the fourth-most assists. Mlxg was replaced by Karsa for the series-deciding Game 3.
Wins both games he plays
January 15, 2018
mlxg finished with a 7/3/17 combined KDA in Games 2 and 3 of RNG's 2-1 win over iG.
mlxg entered the series in Game 2, replacing Karsa, and earned a 2/1/10 KDA as Jarvan IV. He was involved in all but one kill, finishing one assist behind the team leader. In Game 3, mlxg used Rek'sai and earned a 5/2/7 KDA. He was involved in 12 of 21 kills, finishing tied for the team-high in kills and ending with the lowest assist total as he helped RNG complete the reverse sweep.
Aggressive jungling pays off in series victory over Fnatic
October 22, 2017
mlxg earned a series KDA of 5/10/32 in RNG's 3-1 victory over Fnatic in the 2017 World Championship quarterfinals.
During his team's victory against Fnatic, mlxg had a remarkable performance that allowed RNG to take a convincing 3-1 series victory. Playing exclusively Jarvan in the series, mlxg showed his mastery of the champion, participating in the majority of his team's kills while simultaneously securing objectives left and right. After finding two convincing victories for his team, he was unable to control the objectives in Game 3, allowing Fnatic to mount a comeback. Despite the disheartening defeat, he bounced back in Game 4 stronger than ever. Picking up a critical elder dragon, he allowed the rest of his team to steamroll Fnatic in a final teamfight, closing out the game in 40 minutes. With the victory, RNG claimed their spot in the Semifinals of the 2017 World Championship.
Overcomes early struggles
October 14, 2017
mlxg tallied a 2/3/8 KDA in RNG's win over Samsung on Friday.
While mlxg is normally one of the weak points on this RNG team, he certainly stepped up to the plate in this series to give his team the first seed in Group C. He picked Lee Sin, and even though he gave up an early death, he bounced back in a big way as the game progressed. This was especially true in the late game where he found a huge kill that gave RNG a teamfight win and allowed them to break the game wide open.
Only one making plays for RNG
October 13, 2017
Mlxg went 2/3/0 in RNG's Friday loss to G2.
Despite being the leaders of Group C, RNG were completely run over in this game, almost without a fight. The little fight they did have came in the form of Mlxg's Rek'Sai, who at least tried to make plays. His first attempt was successful, as he got a kill in a bot lane gank, but the rest, not so much. An overextension in the bot lane gave up kills and objectives, and later aggression caused him to be caught out on multiple occasions. Still, as the only member or RNG to get any kills, it's hard to fault Mlxg in this one, as he seemed to be the only one actively trying to win.
Near perfect performance
October 7, 2017
mlxg finished RNG's win over Samsung with a 1/0/9 KDA as Jarvan IV.
mlxg pressured from an early stage, actively looking for Ambition and messing with his jungle counterpart. He finished involved in all but one RNG kill, finishing second in assists and tying for the third highest kill total. mlxg was excellent during RNG's win to take control of their group.
Plays well early before fizzling out
September 2, 2017
mlxg ended Friday's loss to EDG with an 8/14/44 combined KDA.
mlxg used Gragas in four of the five games, finishing with a combined 8/10/40 KDA on the champion. He found particular success in the first two games, going 3/4/29 on Gragas in RNG's two wins in the series. His other two games on Gragas, Game 3 and Game 5, didn't go as well as he only had a 5/6/11 KDA. He used Elise in Game 4, as it had been banned most of the series, but managed only a 0/4/4 KDA. Mlxg was involved in 52 of 66 kills in the series, but his impressive kill participation wasn't enough to lead RNG to an LPL title.
Weakest link in semifinals win
August 26, 2017
mlxg put together a KDA of 9/15/26 in RNG's 3-2 win against WE in the semifinals of the LPL Summer Playoffs.
Had Xiaohu not drug the carcass of RNG across the finish line in the final game of this series, mlxg's performance would have stood out like an even bigger sore thumb than it surely was. His Sejuani in Game 1 was unimpactful, accounting for six of his team's 18 deaths alone. He was better on Gragas in Game 2, but then invisible on Zac in Game 3. He had his best performance on Elise in Game 4, but even then, Xiaohu was still more of a factor in the win than anything. In the final game, he picked Jarvan IV and once again was pretty lackluster. Outside of a couple nice Cataclysms, he simply had no impact on the game. He died too many times and couldn't provide the tankiness that his team desperately needed. Thankfully, Xiaohu owned the final fight and brought his team the win, taking some of the heat off mlxg.
Provides the crowd control for RNG
August 18, 2017
mlxg ended Friday's sweep of LGD with a 2/5/17 combined KDA.
mlxg finished Game 1 with an unkillable 0/0/9 KDA as Sejuani. He picked up an assist on nine of RNG's 14 kills, finishing one assist behind Ming for the team lead. In Game 2, mlxg used Gragas and finished with a 2/5/8 KDA. He was involved in two-thirds of his team's kills, finishing with the second-highest assist total in the game. mlxg utilized both champions' crowd-control abilities to finish with a series-high 17 assists.
Strong showing in series sweep
July 31, 2017
mlxg earned a series KDA of 1/2/23 in RNG's 2-0 series sweep over WE.
Starting the series off on Sejuani, mlxg quickly became the unkillable tanky initiator that his team needed. After getting off several early ganks, he was given time to scale up which worked wonders as the game went to the late game. In the final teamfights of the game, he locked down enemy carries while absorbing tons of damage, allowing his team to claim the fights convincingly, resulting in a Game 1 win. Game 2 went even better as mlxg found himself on Maokai and dominated. Quickly finding leads for all of his lanes, he grouped early and decimated the enemy team. Refusing to give up a single objective or kill, he steamrolled WE with the rest of his team, claiming a 24-minute victory to secure the 2-0 series sweep.
Terrible play in singular game
July 25, 2017
mlxg posted a 1/6/9 KDA in Royal Never Give Up's 2-1 series victory over I May on Sunday.
mlxg was subbed in for Game 2, and it was a bad decision by RNG even though it came out victorious in the game. He had a strong start to the game on Rek'Sai, setting up some nice ganks for his bot lane, but that was about it in term of positive contribution. mlxg doesn't deserve to start if that's the performance he's going to show for his team. The veteran jungler has done a lot for RNG in the past, and he's going to have to return to form if RNG has any chance of competing internationally, let alone domestically.
Far too many deaths
July 7, 2017
mlxg ended Friday's loss to KT with a 3/7/9 KDA as Rek'sai.
mlxg had his ups and downs throughout this scrappy game against KT. On one hand, he was involved in 12 of RNG's 14 kills, leading the team with nine assists and finishing with the second-highest kill total at three. On the other hand, he died a team-high seven times. mlxg was able to make plays and set up kills, but often found himself giving away his life in the process.
Not at his best, but good enough
July 6, 2017
mlxg ended RNG's win over AHQ with a 1/3/4 KDA as Gragas.
Despite having his team's highest death total, mlxg did enough to help RNG overcome AHQ on Day 1 of Rift Rivals. He picked up an assist on RNG's first kill and was involved in five of RNG's kills. This was tied with Ming for the lowest kill participation on the team as mlxg wasn't even involved in half of his team's kills, despite winning the game.
Quickly recovers from horrendous start
April 22, 2017
mlxg ended RNG's 3-1 victory over EDG with a KDA of 9/7/25.
mlxg's Elise got off to an absolutely terrible start in Game 1, getting picked off twice in the first five minutes of the game. However, mlxg recovered beautifully, grabbing two kills in the top lane just two minutes later and going on to not die for the rest of the game. He finished with a 3/2/8 KDA in the win. Game 2 saw mlxg on Nidalee. Not much can be said about this game, as RNG were completely run over, but at the very least, mlxg's sole kill and assist were good for perfect kill participation. On Lee Sin for Game 1, mlxg's first gank went a tad sideways as RNG traded 1-for-1 in a 2-vs-1 scenario top lane. However, as the game went on, mlxg consistently landed beautiful Dragon's Rage kicks onto EDG's backline, setting his team up for a win. In Game 4 mlxg moved onto yet another champion in Gragas, and continued to look sharp. His Explosive Casks were well aimed, and his Body Slams were extremely well timed, granting his team the game and series.
Deathless in series domination over Snake
April 10, 2017
mlxg earned a series KDA of 2/0/16 in RNG's 2-0 series victory.
Starting on Ivern, mlxg had a monstrous performance. Despite being on a champion criticized for his inability to get things done in the early game, mlxg quickly found kills for himself and his team, never slowing down after getting things started. In between finding crucial kills, he secured dragons for his team, dominating the objective game with ease. As the game progressed, he joined his team to win back-to-back teamfights, securing a 35-minute victory in Game 1. In Game 2, mlxg had a similar performance, though he was on Lee Sin this time. Picking up early kills once again, he lead his team to a monstrous 25-minute victory. After finding early kills, he dominated the objective game once again. Taking nearly every dragon and securing an early Baron, he allowed his team to find a 25-minute victory, closing out the series with ease.
