Decent initiations not enough to win
September 15, 2018
Hakuho earned a series KDA of 2/5/13 during Clutch Gaming's series loss against Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
Although Hakuho was able to put up a decent showing against Echo Fox, his team's inability to capitalize meant that his effort was simply not enough to secure a victory. After starting things off with an unfortunate game on Tahm Kench that resulted in a 28-minute loss, Hakuho transitioned to a more involved role with his picks. Opting for Shen in Game 2, he was able to start making moves across the map early on, but unfortunately could not find the impact necessary to bring his team into a commanding lead. As the game went on, he could not find his way onto key enemy targets, allowing Echo Fox to edge out a win. With the series down to a final game, Hakuho stepped up on Alistar, but once again could not make up for his team's shortcomings. Despite picking an engage champion, he found little opportunities to do so as his top laner and jungler gave up multiple kills. Playing reactively, he could not find objectives nor vision for his team, allowing Echo Fox to take back-to-back teamfight wins. As a result, Clutch Gaming was defeated, giving up the series 3-0.
Quiet in series loss
September 15, 2018
Apollo earned a series KDA of 5/7/6 during Clutch Gaming's 0-3 loss against Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
Throughout his team's series loss against Echo Fox, Apollo had a relatively quiet performance, leading to his team's eventual demise. After starting things off with a decent showing on Ashe, he found himself quickly falling behind due to his team's mistakes. Picking up one of his team's only two kills in the game, Apollo's performance was not enough to claim a Game 1 win. Things went downhill from there, with Apollo falling in lane in Game 2 early on and struggling to recover. Though he found several kills, it was not nearly enough to shut down the enemy team, resulting in a defeat. Game 3 saw another quiet game as Apollo found himself on Sivir and struggled to get things going. After falling behind in lane, Apollo did little more than farm sidelines for the rest of the game as the topside of his map faltered massively. Try as he might, he could not help the team recover as things went Echo Fox's way convincingly. After losing a final teamfight at the 31-minute mark, FOX claimed victory, defeated Clutch Gaming 3-0 in the series.
Strong showing not enough to win series
September 15, 2018
Febiven earned a series KDA of 9/7/7 during his team's 0-3 series defeat at the hands of Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
During his team's series defeat at the hands of Echo Fox, Febiven had an all around good performance. Unfortunately, individual play simply isn't enough to win a series, causing Clutch Gaming to ultimately fall 0-3. Starting things off on Azir, Febiven struggled to get going, but was able to participate in both of his team's kills in the first game of the series. He bounced back quickly, picking Leblanc in the following game and having a much easier time with things. Although he was able to pick up multiple kills for himself, he could not reliably reach the enemy backline. Try as he might, his efforts were for nothing, resulting in a heartbreaking defeat. Febiven stepped it up once again in Game 3, picking Cassiopeia and controlling lane. Unfortunately, he could not find the opportunity to roam and make up for his team falling behind time and again. Though he was able to hold his own, he could not create the impact necessary to claim the victory. As a result, Clutch Gaming fell 0-3 in the series.
Lackluster showing in loss
September 15, 2018
LirA earned a series KDA of 2/12/10 during his team's series defeat at the hands of FOX.
ANALYSIS
Try as he might, LirA simply could not put up the performance necessary for his team to claim victory over Echo Fox. Throughout the series, he was constantly outclassed by the enemy jungler, unable to find the objectives and kills his team needed to get ahead of things. After falling behind in the first game, he seemed to be permanently affected in the rest of the series. Time and again he found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unable to find the kills or objectives he needed, he could not bring his team into the lead at any point of the series. As a result of his poor play, Clutch Gaming was defeated 0-3 in the series, eliminating the team from a chance at the World Championship.
Unable to find his stride in loss
September 15, 2018
Solo earned a series KDA of 3/13/5 during his team's series loss against Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the entire series against Echo Fox, Solo had an extremely poor performance that did not do his team any favors. Starting the series off, Solo had a miserable showing on Aatrox, giving up four deaths without finding a single kill or assist in his team's defeat. He picked things up in the following games, but once again could not find success. Picking Urgot in Game 2, he was able to find several kills for himself, but began to falter as the game went on. Finding himself caught out, he simply could not use the pick to success, allowing his team to fall 0-2 in the series. In the final game, he picked Aatrox once again to his team's dismay. He did not have any success, once again falling behind early. Unable to hold his own in lane, he struggled in skirmishes, once again doing more harm than good. As a result, Clutch Gaming was defeated, losing the series 0-3.
