Echo Fox
Late split slump continued
March 19, 2018
Dardoch posted a combined KDA of 4/5/8 in Echo Fox's two losses to 100 Thieves on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
In the laning phase of the first game, Dardoch's Sejuani hung around the top lane but wasn't able to be very productive. Any gank attempt was spotted out by wards, allowing 100 Thieves to make plays on the bottom side of the Rift without fear of being countered. Dardoch helped keep Echo Fox alive in the mid-game as he was able to make some winning teamfight engages. However, Echo Fox started to lose its teamfights late as it struggled to break through 100 Thieves massive frontline. Dardoch could do little to stop 100 Thieves Baron empowered sieges as Echo Fox lost its Nexus. In the tiebreaker game, Dardoch went away from tanks as he drafted the assassin Nocturne. Dardoch traded first blood for some assists in an early skirmish and stuck mainly to clearing jungle camps and warding objectives after. When the teamfighting broke out in the second half, Dardoch struggled to find openings to jump into the back line and wreak havoc. Echo Fox began losing teamfights and objectives much quicker than it did in the earlier game as 100 Thieves needed just under 27 minutes to knock down the Nexus.
Few deaths, but crucial ones
March 12, 2018
Dardoch went 2/2/4 as Echo Fox lost to CLG on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Playing Kha'Zix, the pressure was on Dardoch to make early moves in this game. He succeeded to a certain extent, going 1/0/1 in the early game on Echo Fox's two kills, but didn't really manage a greater impact on the lanes than his counterpart's Sejuani. Still, he maintained perfect kill participation throughout the game while ending with two deaths, the fewest on his team. Unfortunately, those deaths were both impactful, as both allowed CLG to take uncontested Barons, and the second ended the game almost single-handedly.
Glacial Prison misses mark throughout loss
March 11, 2018
Dardoch posted a 1/2/3 KDA on Sejuani in Echo Fox's loss to Clutch Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Dardoch secured first blood but immediately gave Clutch Gaming a kill back when he greedily invaded afterward. The early death gave double buffs to Clutch Gaming's top laner, making Huni's task of poking down Cho'Gath very difficult. The focus for Dardoch was still top lane oriented but didn't have many successful ganks throughout the mid game. Echo Fox controlled the neutral objectives for a while but CG found an opening to sneak Baron, allowing it to claw its way back in control. Dardoch struggled to do much in the final teamfights, often times missing Glacial Prison all together as Echo Fox was slowly picked apart. The final stand at the Nexus turrets didn't go well as Echo Fox was aced before the Nexus fell.
Not much to do in win
February 18, 2018
Dardoch posted a 0/2/4 KDA in Echo Fox's win over 100 Thieves on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
While Echo Fox picked up the victory in this game, it wasn't due to anything that Dardoch did. That's not to say that he was bad by any means, as he simply didn't manage to really make much of an impact in a positive of negative way. Even a poor solo death he gave up to Meteos didn't matter much in the grand scheme of things. Meteos was simply along for the ride in this one.
Masterful tank play in big win
February 12, 2018
Dardoch shined for Echo Fox with a KDA of 4/0/8 vs Team Liquid on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Dardoch shined as Zac, enabling the rest of Echo Fox to play with their usual reckless abandon. Initiating fights and securing picks with his plethora of crowd control, Dardoch was a menace throughout the early game, outpacing his jungle counterpart. While Dardoch couldn't reliably find Elastic Slingshot engages later in the game thanks to Liquid's peel, he did a good job of zoning Doublelift's Kog'Maw out of teamfights, ensuring that all Echo Fox had to do was survive the onslaught coming from Pobelter's Ryze. Ending with a flawless 4/0/8 KDA, Dardoch proved that he deserves to be in the discussion for top five junglers in the NA LCS.
Gets the game going early
February 11, 2018
Dardoch ended with a 5/3/5 KDA as Echo Fox took down Golden Guardians on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Picking the Korean-style tank Jax in the jungle, Dardoch did a fantastic job of assessing where he was most useful this game. With passive lanes mid and bot, he made multiple early trips to top lane, nabbing a 2/0/1 KDA by the five-minute mark and putting Huni miles ahead. Huni then spread the love to bottom lane with Teleport, while Dardoch focused on objectives, helping Echo Fox maintain control over dragons and towers. Despite a few lost fights, Echo Fox were able to roll to a fairly easy 34-minute win.
Gragas play on point early, low impact late
February 4, 2018
Dardoch's Gragas scored a 2/2/5 KDA as Echo Fox lost to Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Dardoch made good plays in the early game including a deep dive in the top lane to assist Huni getting a kill and making up for a gold deficit. However, Dardoch's focus on helping the struggling lanes meant that all of the neutral objectives went over to CLG. As Echo Fox won skirmishes on one side of the Rift, it lost turrets on the opposite side. The late game fights weren't kind to Dardoch as his efforts to disengage often cost him his life. There was little EF could do after getting slaughtered in a teamfight over Elder Dragon.
Solid Zac performance in victory
January 22, 2018
Dardoch scored a 0/1/6 KDA on Zac as Echo Fox took the victory against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Dardoch's first clear jungle path put him in the top lane at the end and his first gank resulted in an easy kill for Huni. He continued to focus on the top half of the Rift as his next gank was into the mid lane and resulted in yet another kill. Echo Fox's solo laners began to run away with gold leads as it headed into the late game and there was little that Clutch Gaming could do to stop it. After securing its second Baron kill of the game, Echo Fox dismantled CG in its base before finishing off the Nexus.
Utilizes Zac to great success against FlyQuest
January 21, 2018
Dardoch earned a 0/1/13 KDA on Zac in his team's victory over FLY on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
After a slow start to the game, Dardoch dismantled FLY's carries in teamfights, quickly picking up four kills for his team in the first exchange of the game. Once ahead, he had no problem controlling objectives and continuing to create picks for the rest of his team. Though he was focused heavily being the main initiator, he continued to engage key fights that allowed FOX to control the map. Using his spare time to pick up objectives, he quickly led Echo Fox to victory, claiming a 29-minute win.
Likely to join Echo Fox
November 24, 2017
Dardoch is expected to join Echo Fox, ESPN's Jacob Wolf reported on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The move likely spells an end for Dardoch's run as the jungler for Team Liquid, perhaps mercifully so given the tumultuous relationship between organization and player. While Dardoch's contract with TL does run through 2019, the two sides are expected to come together on a buyout. Echo Fox flirted with bringing on Dardoch as early as 2016, but failed to acquire the jungler after Riot Games rejected the transfer.
Bottom lane focus falls short in Game 3 loss
August 7, 2017
Dardoch posted a 8/16/4 KDA in Team Liquid's series loss to Team Dignitas on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Dardoch's Gragas in Game 1 tried its best to disengage from teamfights, but often got cut down as he was fleeing. The was little that Team Liquid could do in teamfights as it quickly lost objectives in the second half. In Game 2, Dardoch's Lee Sin focused on the bottom half of the map, getting Piglet's Vayne fed. The plan worked and after some clutch Flash Kicks late game TL evened up the series. In Game 3, Dardoch was back on Gragas and couldn't repeat his plan of focusing the bottom lane. Team Liquid got dominated in teamfights again and Dardoch had little influence on them besides dying and finished with a lowly 0/5/1 KDA.
Lackluster performance in the first series back on Team Liquid
July 29, 2017
Dardoch scored a 0/6/10 KDA in Team Liquid's series loss to Immortals on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Dardoch had a rough start to Game 1 as he failed to make ganks and got killed trying to invade. He made some good rotations in the mid game as TL took control of the map. However it dropped the ball late after a Baron call backfired, resulting in it losing the buff and a 3-0 teamfight. In Game 2 Dardoch's Jarvan IV played around the top side of the map, but it wasn't enough to keep IMT's scary late game team composition. There was little that Dardoch could do late as TL's base was destroyed.
Returns to tumultuous ex-team
July 25, 2017
Controversial jungler Dardoch will rejoin Team Liquid, according to Team Liquid's Twitter feed.
ANALYSIS
Where to begin. Dardoch is talented, this we know. Dardoch is also toxic, this is undeniable. After being cut from CLG due to Dardoch's "unwillingness to adhere to CLG's standards," Dardoch returns to Liquid during Liquid's perpetual struggles with roster members coming in and out while the team desperately tries to waste as much money as humanly possible. Dardoch will presumably start in place of Reignover with Korean import Mickey starting in the mid lane, despite TL already having an NA native jungler in Inori. At this point, it's hard to see Dardoch succeeding due to attitude problems leading to his dismissal from multiple top organizations, including Liquid, in the past. Remember, there's not enough talent in the world to excuse toxicity, and it's for this reason that fans shouldn't expect much out of Dardoch in the future.
Poor performance results in being benched for Game 2
July 18, 2017
Dardoch earned a 0/4/4 KDA on Gragas in his team's Game 1 defeat on Saturday, resulting in his substitution.
ANALYSIS
Starting the series off on Gragas, Dardoch had a rather poor performance. As his team fell behind early, he struggled to get ganks off, often dying in the process. Meanwhile, the enemy jungler was getting off ganks successfully as well as securing objectives to snowball his team ahead. The result was CLG finding themselves extremely far behind with no comeback mechanics. A series of desperate engages sealed their fate as Dignitas was able to run over them, taking a convincing victory. As a result of the defeat, Dardoch was removed for the remainder of the series.
Solid effort in Game 1, benched in Game 2
July 15, 2017
Dardoch posted a 2/4/6 in Counter Logic Gaming's Game 1 victory against FlyQuest on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Dardoch had a rough start to Game 1 as he was in a lot of skirmishes and traded deaths for kills and assists. However, Dardoch got caught out a few times in the second half that allowed FLY to take all of the neutral objectives and CLG was in a gold deficit it never managed to dig out of. It didn't matter much as CLG stalled long enough for its carries to farm up and started to dominate the teamfighting late. A 4-for-0 teamfight victory late was all CLG needed before pushing to win. Counter Logic Gaming decided to bench Dardoch for Game 2 and gave its rookie jungler OmarGod the start.
