Provides little support in loss
February 19, 2018
Olleh posted a 2/4/7 KDA in Team Liquid's loss to the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
When a support ends with the same KDA as the ADC, there might be a bit of a problem. That was the case in this game, as Olleh struggled to help his team stay alive in this game. They put up a valiant effort, but the Guardians simply did whatever it wanted to at every moment. Olleh tried his best, but his game was marred by misuses of his Summoner Spells, which led to his death on more than one occasion. Liquid will need to brush off this loss and try to get back to their winning ways in Week 6.
Unable to carry team in loss
February 19, 2018
Doublelift stumbled his way to a 2/4/7 KDA in Team Liquid's loss at the hands of the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Give credit to Doublelift for trying his best in this game. He truly tried to give his team avenues in which to mount a comeback. The only problem was that he was shut down at just about every turn. He tried to use his Tristana to dive in and start fights, but Guardians simply brushed him aside at every turn. While Liquid was seen by many as one of the best teams in the league, this loss to a team at the bottom of the standings is surely a head-scratcher.
Misuses abilties in loss
February 19, 2018
Pobelter managed just a 1/3/7 KDA in Liquid's upset loss at the hands of the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Despite being on the strong mid laner of Corki, Pobelter was simply unable to do anything in this game against the Guardians. He started off my misusing his Summoner spells, leading to this first death. That basically set the tone on what kind of game this would be, as he and the rest of his team were simply shut down at every moment in a surprising show of strength from the Golden Guardians.
Falls off after quick start
February 19, 2018
Xmithie put up a KDA of 3/4/4 on Sejuani in Team Liquid's loss to the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Xmithie started this game off with a nice play to get first blood for this team, making it look as though Liquid would simply run away with a win against the team at the bottom of the standings. But the rest of the game was filled with missed ultimates and squandered opportunities for the Liquid jungler. Guardians, meanwhile, looked like the better team in this game and made sure that no one on Liquid, including Xmithie, could do anything to stop them.
Little impact in loss
February 19, 2018
Impact went 2/3/6 on Sion in Team Liquid's surprising loss to the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
All throughout this game, Impact simply looked lost in the face of Lourlo. While the Guardians top laner was making impactful plays from start to finish, Impact was merely treading water. This was in spite of the fact that he was on Sion, a champion that could have conceivably turned the tide in a big way. While many thought that Liquid was one of the best teams in the league early in the season, a loss to the team at the bottom of the standings to start the second round-robin is certainly not their best look.

Golden State Warriors co-owner acquires esports organization Team Liquid
September 27, 2016
In a surprising move following the 76ers purchase of eSports teams Dignitas and Apex, Peter Guber and entrepreneur Ted Leonsis have bought Team Liquid's controlling interest.
ANALYSIS
The North American eSports scene will undergo its second shakeup in as many days thanks to two large investments into the scene from traditional sports. It is unclear what lies ahead for all eSports teams under the Team Liquid organisation, but Guber seems to be rather confident that his investment will be a success. Whether or not these established sports investors will be able to translate their experience with regular sports to the eSports scene remains to be seen.
