Misfits
United Kingdom
Outmatched once again
September 8, 2018
Sencux ended Misfits' Saturday loss to Vitality with a 5/8/14 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Similarly to his previous series up against Fnatic and Caps, Sencux struggled mightily to keep up with his lane opponent. With Jiizuke having his performance of the season, Sencux stuck to the simple and supportive champions of Lulu and Malzahar, and failed to have the same impact. He was consistently down in CS and kill participation, and didn't have the same effect come teamfights. When he deviated from the safe champions with a Yasuo pick, it went even worse for him. He simply couldn't make any real sort of positive impact for his team.
Carries Game 1
September 8, 2018
Hans sama went 16/10/9 as Misfits fell to Vitality on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Alongside Mikyx's signature Rakan, Hans sama's Xayah worked wonders for Misfits in Game 1 of their Saturday series. After the duo nabbed a kill in the 2-vs-2, they began to rotate throughout the map, picking up more kills as well as turrets to push Misfits to a 30-minute victory. Misfits closed out Game 1 with a superb 9/1/6 KDA. Unfortunately, while the Misfits bottom lane continued to play well throughout the series, the rest of the team couldn't keep up, and Misfits lost the next three games.
Earns his team sole victory
September 8, 2018
0/18/26 was Mikyx's KDA as Misfits fell to Team Vitality on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 of Saturday's series, Mikyx got an opportunity he hadn't been given throughout all of the playoffs: his Rakan was left open. Misfits instantly first-picked the champion for him, and it paid off. Together with Hans sama's Xayah, Mikyx dominated the bottom lane, finding a 2-vs-2 kill before spreading the advantage around the map for a win. However, in the next three games, Mikyx faltered on other picks, devastating his formerly solid KDA and handing Misfits a series loss.
Drops off compared to quarters

Alphari's scoreline read 8/13/18 as Misfits lost to Fnatic on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Alphari's play wasn't noticeably detrimental to his team's chances in this series, as he played exclusively tanks, but he was certainly lackluster. He ended every single game down in CS, including the Game 2 win, and didn't make any big plays for Misfits. Especially contrasting with his dominant showing in the quarterfinals, Alphari's bland play in this series was certainly a letdown.
Finds success on carries
September 2, 2018
9/10/22 was Maxlore's KDA at the end of Misfits' 3-1 loss to Fnatic on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Over four games, Maxlore's success came in Games 2 and 4, on the aggressive picks of Kindred and Xin Zhao respectively. In both of these games, Maxlore managed superb kill participation, even hard carrying the match in Game 2 for Misfits' only win. His other games were much less impressive, however, particularly his Game 1 on Ivern. Bringing out such an oddball pick demands results, and Maxlore couldn't deliver and accomplished virtually nothing over the course of the series opener.

Qualifies for EULCS
December 31, 1969
Misfits have taken down FC Schalke 04 in a 3-1 series that claimed them a spot in the 2017 EULCS Spring Split.
ANALYSIS
Misfits' road to the EULCS started with their domination of the EU CS Summer Split. They finished the Round Robin stage in first place with a 4-1 record. Once the playoffs hit, they continued their strong play by defeating both Epsilon eSports and Millenium by a 3-0 score to make their way to the Promotion Tournament. Their run in the tournament didn't get off to the best start, as they were defeated by Origen in a close 3-2 series. They had one last chance to make it to the EULCS, though, and they did not throw away their shot. They came out strong and defeated Schalke in a 3-1 series to break their way into the EULCS this Spring.
