Unable to get things going in loss
August 27, 2018
Flame earned a series KDA of 4/11/8 during FlyQuest's 3-0 loss at the hands of 100 Thieves.
ANALYSIS
Despite his reputation, Flame did not have the performance necessary to find victory over 100 Thieves. Throughout the entire series, he struggled to get much of anything done. In each game of the series, he found himself falling behind in lane and unsure of how to find a way back into things. Being put on tank champions rather than carries, he often seemed unsure of what his role was. Being unable to eclipse his enemy in lane, he struggled to join the team in a successful manner during skirmishes. Try as he might, he could not use Cho'gath to success, unable to find a meaningful feast on either an enemy champion or objective. As a result, Flame fell flat in the series, allowing FlyQuest to be swept.
Dominates on Rumble to eliminate CLG from Playoffs
August 13, 2018
Flame earned a 2/1/5 KDA on Rumble during his team's victory over CLG.
ANALYSIS
From the very start of the game, Flame showed how to simply outclass your opponent. After outfarming his counterpart in lane, he was able to roam and begin assisting his team in skirmishes. Dealing huge amounts of damage, he was able to quickly bring his team a large advantage. Despite being focused in these skirmishes due to his lack of mobility and focus on dealing large amounts of damage, Flame was able to remain relatively safe as things progressed. Though he didn't participate in all of the team's kills, he was able to land huge equalizers that kept his team in the game. As a result, FlyQuest took a convincing 32-minute victory.
Strong splitpushing nets win
July 31, 2018
Flame earned a 2/1/2 KDA on Kennen during his team's victory over TSM on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Starting off the game by picking up First Blood just three minutes into the game, Flame had an extremely strong game on Kennen. As the rest of his team found leads of their own across the map, he was able to show up huge in skirmishes, continually bringing the team into the driver's seat of the game. As things progressed, he saw a huge opportunity, initiating a base race for his team. Sticking by his carry while the enemy team pushed down the mid lane, he was able to backdoor the bottom lane of TSM's base with WILDTURTLE, resulting in a 32-minute victory for FlyQuest.
Lane control helps shut down gold funnel
July 1, 2018
Flame posted a 1/1/10 KDA on Aatrox in FlyQuest's win against Golden Guardians on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Flame was key to FlyQuest's plan to beat the gold funnel strategy that GGS was running. Luckily his Aatrox had an easy time bullying his way to a CS lead before the gank help put him comfortably ahead. Flame was able to help dive turrets to zone GGS off before quickly knocking it down, helping FLY quickly expand upon its lead. While Flame lead in damage dealt to champions, he only had assists to show for it.
Solid frontline in first win of season
June 25, 2018
Flame Scored a 4/2/2 KDA on Darius in FlyQuest's victory over OpTic Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Flame got some help early from FlyQuest's mid lane- jungle duo to get off to a good start. The early pressure allowed FlyQuest to take first turret in the top lane as it slowly began to pull ahead in gold. Flame and crew tried to keep the tempo pushing in its favor but some poor calls in the mid game led to losing teamfights and the evening out of objectives. Flame wasn't able to go on any big Noxian Guillotine kill sprees but his job was mainly to protect the carries. He still managed a solid 50 percent kill participation.
Canon fodder in loss
June 24, 2018
Flame went just 1/6/3 during FlyQuest's loss to 100 Thieves on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Having to go up against Ssumday's Aatrox with an Ornn of his own, Flame had a rough go of things in this game. He basically had no impact whatsoever and just died over and over. Ssumday had all the focus from his team, which left Flame in a state where he was powerless to stop Ssumday from doing much of anything at all. As such, he tallied just a single kill and FlyQuest were brushed aside.
Superb swashbuckling
March 12, 2018
Flame went 4/1/7 as FlyQuest took down Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
On Gangplank into Gnar, Flame not only managed to keep up in CS during the laning phase but even find an advantage, a rarity in the matchup. From there, his impact was felt across the map, as he survived GGS' strong early game and started scaling quickly. His damage and barrel mechanics were solid, and a crucial part of FlyQuest's win.
Decent showing in defeat
February 26, 2018
1/1/4 was Flame's KDA at the end of FlyQuest's Sunday loss to 100 Thieves.
ANALYSIS
In this game, Flame's Camille was faced with the unenviable task of making up FlyQuest's entire frontline, as the only fully melee champion in the lineup. Given this, and how many engagements FlyQuest lost, it's somewhat remarkable that he ended the game with just the one death, while still participating in five out of six FlyQuest kills. Three of these came from the one fight FlyQuest won, off an early counter gank in the bottom lane. However, after this, FlyQuest failed to get much of anything done, so Flame's impact was limited.
Low impact in loss
February 18, 2018
Flame posted a 0/1/1 KDA on Gnar in FlyQuest's loss to Clutch Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Flame's only assist of the game came off of Fly's first blood kill. Most of the mid-game Flame was in the side lanes trying to split push but never got much turret pushing done as CG tore it apart across the map. When Flame did join up there was little that he could do against the massive crowd control train that CG was running. FlyQuest tried to make a stand at the second Baron but failed and quickly lost its nexus after.
Does his best to bring FlyQuest a win
February 11, 2018
Flame tallied a 3/2/2 KDA in FlyQuest's tough loss to Cloud9 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Flame's Gangplank was a dominant force throughout the early game on Sunday. He was owning Licorice in their matchup in the top lane, which pushed FlyQuest into the lead for most of the game. Not only was he winning that matchup, but he was roaming the map well to help his other lanes find leads as well. The one thing they just couldn't account for was Jensen's Azir in the mid lane. He almost single-handedly brought his team back, undoing all of the work that Flame did early on.
Tries his best to get going
February 5, 2018
Flame finished FlyQuest's loss to CLG on Sunday with a KDA of 2/3/4.
ANALYSIS
Flame's Gnar looked solid early on, taking the expected CS lead over the enemy Gangplank and landing a fantastic ultimate in the game's first skirmish to help even it out for his team. Unfortunately, there was nothing he could do to stop the tower dive CLG pulled off minutes later, setting FlyQuest far behind. After that, he managed to keep up good kill participation, but there wasn't all that much to go around.
Avoids feeding in catastrophic loss
February 5, 2018
Flame did what he could in FlyQuest's Saturday loss to Team Liquid, posting a KDA of 1/2/1.
ANALYSIS
Flame got the rough end of the stick in the top lane, despite having a winning lane matchup in Gnar vs Impact's Ornn. After getting ganked and killed at six minutes via jungle gank, Flame was set behind for the rest of the game in terms of both TP advantage and map control. With FlyQuest experimenting with roster changes in the form of a new jungler, Flame never got the assistance he needed to get back into the game, although that can be said about every member of FQ. Quite simply, FlyQuest fell apart against Liquid's aggressive shotcalling, leaving Flame with a 1/2/1 KDA.
Clutch calls to the forge God late
January 28, 2018
Flame scored a 2/2/10 KDA on Ornn as FlyQuest took down the Golden Guardians on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Flame was on the move early and often as he joined skirmishes on the bottom side of the Rift. While he managed to pick up some assists, his absence in lane allowed Lourlo to knock down first turret. FlyQuest tried to keep up with the Golden Guardians' rotations but were always a step behind, often giving up turrets for Drake buffs, leaving them in a 6-0 turret deficit at the 35-minute mark. However, FlyQuest started to turn things around late as Flame's Ornn landed 5-man Call of the Forge Gods to break GG's siege. Suddenly FQ was in the driver's seat and were unstoppable after securing a Baron buff at the 45-minute mark that allowed them to push for the win.
Comes up big against TSM
January 21, 2018
Flame finished FlyQuest's surprise win over Team SoloMid on Sunday with a 4/1/7 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Flame was on fire during this game and was a big reason why FQ enjoyed a win over the reigning NA LCS Champions. While he only picked up a single kill on Hauntzer, Flame was just an all-around dominating force from start to finish. While TSM certainly look like shells of their former selves this split, it was a strong start for Flame nonetheless. If he keeps playing like this, FlyQuest could be a sleeper hit to do damage in the NA LCS this split.
Struggles on Gangplank in defeat
January 21, 2018
Flame earned a 0/2/1 KDA on Gangplank in his team's loss against Echo Fox on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Although Flame did not have a strong performance against Echo Fox, he still did not have the worst showing on his team. Falling behind in lane early, he had no chance of coming back. Able to simply use his ultimate to try and delay the enemy's onslaught, he did little more than tickle them. Without a way to chain barrels and hit the enemy carries, he struggled and only managed to deal minor amounts of damage against the enemy team. Without a way into the backline, he could not get past the enemy frontline, allowing his team to be defeated in fights time and again. As a result, FlyQuest was defeated in 29 minutes.
