Scout earned a series KDA of 15/11/32 during EDG's 3-2 series win over JDG.
ANALYSIS

He slowly ramped up in the series, losing the first game but quickly dominating in the next two, bringing EDG into a commanding 2-1 series lead. Although Scout was defeated in Game 4, it came due to a flex pick from the enemy team that caught all of EDG off guard, completely countering his champion.

With things down to a final Game 5, his performance was crucial to his team's victory.
