Cloud9

Consistent damage from the carry
June 18, 2018
Keith ended 2/1/3 as Cloud9 took down OpTic.
ANALYSIS
Bringing out the Lucian, Keith found success from the early stages of the game, breaking out to a quick CS lead over Arrow's Xayah. As the game drew on, Keith's rotations were a crucial part of his team's macro advantage, since he was by far the best at pushing towers. Towards the end, Keith's main purpose was to dole out safe plenty of damage while staying relatively safe thanks to his strong frontline. His only death was just as the game was ending, and he probably could've avoided it if he cared to try.
Ultimate proves crucial
June 18, 2018
Svenskeren ended Cloud9's win over OpTic Gaming with a 1/1/5 KDA on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Svenskeren's Nocturne was active as soon as he hit level 6, despite not securing a kill with his first Paranoia. Instead, he managed to burn both of the enemy mid laner's Summoner Spells, returning with the next ultimate to find the kill. Toward the end of the game, Svenskeren's ultimates were particularly impactful, specifically the one that initiated the pick onto Akaadian, securing the Baron for Cloud9.
Outpressures OpTic
June 18, 2018
Licorice went 0/2/6 in Cloud9's win over OpTic on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
In a game with a close kill score and matched objectives early on, it was Cloud9's vastly superior map pressure and macro that won them the game. Licorice on Shen with his global ultimate, was arguably the largest contributor to that, at least in comparison to his opponent. He was able to nearly hit the Flame horizon of a 100 CS advantage by the end of this game, and also hit some crucial taunts to secure picks for Cloud9.
Fell behind early in loss
June 17, 2018
Svenskeren posted a 1/5/6 KDA on Nocturne in Cloud9's loss to Clutch Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Svenskeren had a rough start on Nocturne, dying early and giving up any sort of hope to win a 1-vs-1 jungler skirmish. However, he made up for some of it as his first gank in the bottom lane produced a kill and assist. It wasn't nearly enough as Cloud9 was behind in gold for nearly the entire match and started to get run over in the late game teamfights. After losing a few teamfights and giving up a Baron kill, there was little that Cloud9's AP-heavy team composition could do to stop Clutch Gaming from knocking down the Nexus.
Solid performance in return to LCS
June 17, 2018
Goldenglue finished with a 2/2/4 KDA on Zoe in CLoud9's loss to Clutch Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Of the players the Cloud9 brought up from the Academy team, there was only one that had a solid performance and that was Goldenglue. He managed to pick up a solo kill during the laning phase on his way to building a pretty big CS lead. Goldenglue did his best in teamfights to carry as he lead C9 in damage dealt to champions. However, Goldenglue's effort wasn't enough to win key teamfights and after Cloud9 lost an inhibitor it never recovered.

  • 2018 NA LCS Summer Split
    6/23/2018 - 8/19/2018
    Team Liquid shrugged off the "Forever Fourth" memes and claimed the NA LCS title for the first time in franchise history. The Summer Split is where things should really heat up, though, as teams are fighting for a trip to the World Championships this fall. Will Liquid repeat as champions? Or will the likes of 100 Thieves, Echo Fox, or Team SoloMid unseat Liquid to earn that ticket to worlds?
