Quas again snowballed a small lead over kfo and was great at getting picks on Echo Fox the entire game. Mediocre in series sweep Team: KiWiKiD played Karma in both games of the series. His two deaths weren't meaningless as they came with assists. He had a lot more deaths in Game 2 of the series where he was caught out more and sacrificed himself during the base race that ended the match.
Solid series to start off second half of the Summer Split Name: Oh "Ohq" Gyu-min Team: He picked up an early double kill to get a gold lead that grew for the rest of the game. His only death could've been avoided if he stuck with his team instead of roaming solo in Echo Fox's jungle. It didn't affect the outcome, as he was alive when both teams opted to base race. Solid series sweep on Viktor Name: However, NRG eSports picked up the pace in the middle of the game and built a team gold advantage by taking down towers and neutral objectives.
In Game 2, he was top damage dealer again, but had a lot more deaths.
Both teams were fairly equal throughout Game 2 and opted to base race to end the match. However, if NRG eSports gets back on the winning path, his stats could recover in the second half. Great play on jungle tanks in sweep of Echo Fox Name: He was everywhere that he needed to be, always helping out in teamfights which earned him percent kill participation.
In Game 2, he made some good plays early to help snowball Quas' gold lead. NRG and Echo Fox were pretty evenly matched in a game came down to a base race.
Echo Fox had a numbers advantage, but Santorin and Ohq faked them out by starting their backing animations to bait them into stopping their push. Santorin has really been playing great for NRG eSports so far this split.
He has the least amount of deaths among North American junglers who have played in at least 24 games and highest kill participation. Shows versatility in series sweep of Echo Fox Name: Diego "Quas" Ruiz Team: Quas showed versatility in the series against Echo Fox, playing well on tank and carry top laners.
He was great at being a frontline distraction in teamfights. Quas made a good teleport play to cut off Froggen's escape, earning him first blood. He got a few more kills early which helped him secure a gold lead over kfo which slowly grew as the game went on. Giedrius "DoubleG" Dagys Team: He only started in one series for the team before packing up shop. The extent of his EU League of Legends experience is limited to playing for a couple EU Challenger hopefuls that did not end up qualifying for the Series.
It is unclear how much playing time DoubleG will get moving forward. Jung "Impact" Eon-yeong Team: Impact had an almost perfect Game 1, participating in nine out of ten kills and never dying. His Shen play was the nail in the coffin for Team Liquid, who had placed all of their hopes on Lourlo's Fiora getting ahead and accomplishing a split push. Impact rotated better through the lane swap, however, getting an experience lead that put him briefly at a three level advantage.
He proceeded to push Lourlo around in lane, growing his lead, and eventually killed him 1-vs-1 when Lourlo overstepped his boundaries. This led directly into Impact having the freedom to ultimate up top and not only save Sneaky but win an entire teamfight that Lourlo couldn't participate in.
He also secured his team a huge win when he snuck around to the flank of TL as they were sieging and got a four-man taunt. His performance fell apart in Game 2 when he could not create the same lane advantage over Lourlo's Trundle.
His Shen's late game fell apart because he couldn't stop TL's split push, and the pressure left them losing their entire base all at once.

Game 3 had a similar pattern. Impact individually defeated Lourlo in the lane. He got an early kill on the Shen off a gank and was heavily out-farming him.
The issue was that Lourlo was teleporting into teamfights and finding assists and kills not just for himself, but for all of Team Liquid. C9 could no longer support themselves off of just an Irelia who ended up with three of the team's four kills. Impact, despite losing to Lourlo overall, was a large part of all of Cloud9's successes, ending with an Unable to turn tide in losing series Name: William "Meteos" Hartman Team: Meteos had a decent series, ending with a 2.
The low kill participation percentage came mainly from Game 1, which was only seconds away from beating the record for latest first blood. Despite that, Meteos found ways to help in the later stages of the match, always present in teamfights and helping to secure the Baron.
It ended as a clean, low-kill win. It was Game 2 where Meteos began to falter. He was still present in teamfights, but all he managed to contribute was damage versus the engage and CC that Dardoch continually used to lock up C9.
Meteos did manage to get the miracle Baron steal that kept C9 afloat for as long as they did, and he had a stellar performance in the teamfight where TL made the mistake of trying to fight 4-vs-5, but his play wasn't enough to turn the game around.
In Game 3, Meteos showed a bit of technical prowess, as his kill in the bottom lane was thanks to a timely use of his flash and body slam, but ultimately his play was sloppy. He picked Gragas for the displacement, but never managed to land the barrel on priority targets, usually getting the tanky Rek'sai which accomplished little in the teamfight.
He was constantly being invaded upon by Dardoch, and although he managed to secure most of his camps, it speaks to a larger lack of pressure. Uneven performance in series loss Name: Nicolaj "Jensen" Jensen Team: We have come to expect a high level of play from Jensen after this recent winning streak with C9, but by the end of Friday's series his play had fallen apart. He ended with a KDA ratio of only 1. He ended with the most deaths of anyone on his team, going down five times in both of C9's losses.
Game 1, Jensen started off strong, playing to his usual high standard. He was ganked several times but never went down due to his ability to dodge skillshots perfectly and judge exactly where he had to be.
And he was very sure in his abilities, going forward to almost solo out Matt under turret, and immediately chaining his CC on the stuns when diving midlane.
His damage was the main force that carried C9 to victory. Game 2 was where it started going downhill. Although he still demonstrated his ability to get out of danger, avoiding a four-man gank without even blowing a summoner, the focus that TL put on him eventually wore him down and he gave up first blood.
Despite being on Twisted Fate, Jensen could not unbalance teamfights because TL was almost always there first. Jensen was continually caught and bursted out, usually before a fight began giving Liquid their early Dragon control.
Even in the teamfights that Cloud9 managed to win, such as the 4-vs-5 in mid lane, it was at the expense of Jensen's life because Liquid could burst him out so easily. In Game 3 this focus was only exacerbated, as Jensen ended with a 0.
His usual precise play fell apart as he found himself constantly caught out of position or away from his team. Gives away loss in Game 3 thanks to sloppy performance Name: Zachary "Sneaky" Scuderi Team: Sneaky got off to a great start in the series, winding up with his favorite Ashe pick.
His opposition Fabbbyyy was unable to get involved in any fights thanks to the fact that Sneaky was a bother, routinely landing arrow after arrow, getting picks and setting up plays.
As usual, C9 was always there to back him up, collapsing as soon as Sneaky hit his ultimate and chaining huge amounts of CC on to whoever happened to be caught. Sneaky also knew how to follow up on his teammates, securing a huge teamfight win with an arrow directly into Impact's four-man taunt. Sneaky had an impressive solo play, 1-vs-1 killing Fenix's Zilean in the top lane and converting it into another kill on Matt.
The final play succeeded because of Impact coming in as well as the rest of C9, but it was Sneaky's quick fingers and on point mechanics that gave them the opening. Game 2, however, quickly started to fall apart for Sneaky, who, to his credit still managed to maintain a kill participation percentage despite the loss.
The painful loss in Game 3 was, however, arguably Sneaky's fault. He walked into Liquid's jungle alone pre-minions spawning and died to Fabbbyyy.
Then he and Bunny Fufuu proceeded to die over and over to multiple ganks by Dardoch and Lourlo. He was so far behind in the end that there was almost nothing he could do or contribute, even his wave clear against the siege was blocked by Matt's Braum.
With their mid lane and AD carry so far behind, there was nothing Cloud9 could do against Liquid's onslaught. Miserable timing contributes to series loss Name: Bunny Fufuu has been very impressive recently with his ability to land skillshots and time CC layering, but in Friday's series he seemed to be struggle.
His Bard play in Game 1 was decent, as his ultimate was mainly used for disengaging. He had a couple of solid ultimate uses, tower diving mid lane second tier, for instance, but then seemed to just focus on piling up ridiculous amounts of CC, rather than C9's usual careful layering.
It was enough to win teamfights, however, and eventually the game. When Bunny came back in for Game 3 he pulled out Bard, and his timing on Bard seemed to be even worse than it had been on Braum. While his ultimates were well placed, often catching two or more members of Liquid the issue was in his follow up.
Bunny mistimed his binding consistently, leaving him unable to continue chaining down the enemies he caught in his ultimate and rendering it almost useless. Teamfights that Cloud9 should have had the upper hand on fell apart because they simply could not coordinate their abilities like a team the way they had in Game 1.
Bunny was unable to save Sneaky from the constant ganking in Game 3, usually going down himself as well. His mechanics were simply not up to the level seen in his recent victories. Lone Game 2 performance not enough to turn around series Name: Andy "Smoothie" Ta Team: Smoothie, despite the loss, had a very solid performance on Friday. He came out with not only a 4. His Magical Journey out of the early fight near bottom lane saved every one of his teammates who were on the verge of death.
His binding on Lourlo after he was hit by Sneaky's arrow gave them the time to secure the kill, and his second binding gave them the time to disengage before the second half of the fight. His ultimates were almost always used to try and interrupt Fabbbyyy's damage, and considering the accuracy on his Curtain Call's, it was likely that Smoothie saved his team from a disadvantageous start to a fight. Smoothie couldn't always protect his team, however, as his Magical Journey gave Fabbbyyy an easy shot at fleeing targets and Smoothie himself was picked off trying to escape a Baron fight.
Despite Smoothie's strong play, he wasn't able to help Cloud9 take the game back, it just allowed them to hold on longer to a losing matchup.
Terrific performance in Game 3 secures series win Name: Samson "Lourlo" Jackson Team: Lourlo had a bumpy start to the series, but his team continued to prioritize him and eventually he helped lead them to victory. Game 1 Lourlo picked Fiora confidently, despite the fact that Impact was on Shen, and the results were disastrous. Lourlo fell behind heavily in both farm and experience, and was pushed around early in lane.
He tried to push up and be aggressive, counter-jungling despite being behind in levels, and Impact solo-killed him. This mistake set the pace of the game. Lourlo was unable to split push because of Impact, and he could barely teleport into fights because he was either chunked out by Shen or had wasted his ultimate just trying to stay alive.
Team Liquid had put almost all of their win condition on Lourlo, and with their poor teamfight they were easily rolled over and destroyed by C9. The series turned around in Game 2 Lourlo however.
Team Liquid still gave him priority, first picking the Trundle to give him a favorable lane matchup. This time Lourlo did not fall behind, as he was able to push Impact around a bit in the 1-vs-1, but he still made some early mistakes.
He overestimated his abilities, trying to tank for a teamfight before he had the stats to succeed and dying quickly, and later trying to solo kill Sneaky and being picked off when Smoothie came in from behind. He was also caught out by an Ashe arrow and killed, giving Cloud9 a teamfight that was almost enough for them to come back. Lourlo fell behind early, going down in farm and dying to Meteos' ganking, but it was his global pressure that set his performance apart from the first two games.
He was everywhere, picking up kills and assists in the top lane and finding teamfights in mid. It furthered Impact's farm lead, but Lourlo quickly caught up and surpassed him in gold until he was so tanky that he could ignore Impact completely and split push successfully for his team, destroying Cloud9's base all in one fell swoop.
Destructive performance gives team series win Name: Joshua "Dardoch" Hartnett Team: Dardoch was a monster on Friday, finishing the series with a 9. His Game 1 was a bit of a flop, the extended lane swap meant very little room for ganking, and he was unable to steal the Baron away from Cloud9. Usually he wasn't involved in fights until the very end, and during the one he was involved in, he tried to unburrow two Cloud9 members that were still in his own Bard's Tempered Fate.
That breakdown in communication kept them from achieving anything more than the initial pick off kill.

Dardoch picked up after that, with an exceptional mechanical performance on Gragas in a game that ended up being remade due to a bug, but it was the beginning of his rise. He continued showing those skills in the real Game 2, helping his mid laner get first blood, interrupting Bard just before he could take the Magical Journey, knocking up two enemies and keeping them in place for Fabbbyyy and the rest of TL to secure multiple kills.
He no longer suffered from being on the outside of teamfights, in fact he was faster at collapsing than C9's team, which was designed to collapse. He was Liquid's tank and often their engage and, despite having a Baron stolen out from under him, brought TL to a decisive victory. Game 3 this trend continued. Dardoch ended with the best scoreline on his team, posting a deathless game and a KDA ratio of He saw his opportunity to help snowball Fabbbyyy after Sneaky gave up a free early kill and he took it, getting early kills on both Sneaky and Bunny Fufuu, as well as a clean near-ace from a well set up tower dive.
Dardoch coordinated well with Lourlo, bringing him into the middle of fights before knocking every one up and giving Fabbbyyy and Fenix time and space to take everyone down. With Dardoch keeping Sneaky down early, it was an easy win for Team Liquid. Positive performance in series win Name: Kim "Fenix" Jae-hoon Team: Fenix helped bring his team to one of the first series upset in NA this Summer. He finished with a 4.
Play League on the Copenhagen Finals stage!
His Game 1 on Zilean was unimpressive, despite earning the only kill for his team early on, he couldn't turn it into anything further.
He later over-confidently tried to duel Sneaky and ended up not only dying, but luring in Matt to die too. He failed to execute the Bard and Zilean combo properly, either missing the bombs while Cloud9 was frozen or simply not being in range to capitalize upon Matt finding an enemy. Game 2, however, he came out swinging, picking up first blood on Jensen through repeated ganks on the mid lane.
He kept the lane pushing in his favor, keeping Jensen from having the map pressure Twisted Fate is supposed to provide.
In fact, Fenix's teleports several times gave him a better entrance into a team fight than Jensen had. He had some missteps, such as leaving his team mid lane while he went to clear top, giving Cloud9 a chance for a pick. It was also Fenix's hubris that made him think he could handle Meteos on the outside of the Baron pit alone, a move that gave a Baron steal to C9.
Game 3, however, Fenix stepped up again, making even fewer mistakes and finishing with a 13 KDA ratio. He bullied Jensen around in lane, and later on caught him out again and again to delete him before teamfights. Even just walking up from mid lane Fenix had a huge impact, roaming top to help his team secure four kills on the back half of what looked like a losing teamfight. These early advantages were already the nail in C9's coffin, as TL didn't give them any space to get back into the game.
Deadly accurate with ultimate in series win Name: Jovani "fabbbyyy" Guillen Team: Fabbbyyy had a fantastic series, finishing with a 7. His Game 1 with Sivir was dismal, but not entirely his fault. He was completely unable to get into fights, and so his damage was lost, which certainly did not help TL with their already weaker teamfight composition.
It was Game 2 and Game 3 where Fabbbyyy switched on to the long range Jhin that everything clicked together. Fabbbyyy played an excellent Jhin in multiple ways, but the ability that has to be brought up first is his ultimate accuracy.
Equally good at starting teamfights as finishing them off, Fabbbyyy picked people off in Magical Journey's, he found and slowed Sneaky for the rest of his team, he stopped Baron attempts and secured towers.
Fabbbyyy's positioning was also top tier. As soon as he wasn't on Sivir who relies on getting up close and personal, he found his niche, always over a jungle wall or so far back that he wasn't drawing any of the fire. He only died once in Game 3 when his team abandoned him to start a fight and Impact's Irelia managed to find him around the side.The Dive: Who is Winning the Offseason? (Season 2, Episode 33)
Most of Smoothie's Bard ultimates in Game 2 were spent just to try and keep Fabbbyyy from dealing damage for a little bit, either cancelling his ultimate or just attempting to push him off.
Fabbbyyy demolished Sneaky in Game 3 after killing him before minions spawned and he coordinated with Dardoch to press that advantage as far as it could go. Locking down opponents with his snares and his slows, Fabbbyyy's Jhin play was a crucial component of Team Liquid's victory over Cloud9.
Excellent in support capacity in win Name: Matthew "Matt" Elento Team: Matt finished strong on Friday with a 6. He had trouble on Bard in Game 1, failing to combo his ultimate with Zilean's double bombs even once. He also had poor communication with his team, catching two in his ultimate just as Dardoch was going in to knock them up and thereby wasting the CC that could have netted them kills. Matt also died the most on his team, and was not even involved in their one kill.
Coming out of Game 1, however, Matt followed suit with the rest of Team Liquid and stepped up. In Game 2 his Karma pick gave Team Liquid the move speed to counter Cloud9's collapse, and they were often in a fight even faster than the team with both Twisted Fate and Shen. Matt's bindings were also crucial, locking enemies down for Fabbbyyy's damage or flashing forward to catch Sneaky and keep him from disengaging.
In Game 3, Matt helped Fabbbyyy get the early first blood on Sneaky, and then doubled up the lane dominance from there.
He confidently dove the turret, taking four hits before leaving in order to get Fenix two kills on the other side. His shield was more practical utility, helping the siege by keeping Sneaky from wave clearing. In the end it was the unrelenting pressure of all of Team Liquid that brought down Cloud9 and ended their win streak. Unable to disrupt TSM in loss Name: Derek "zig" Shao Team: There were very low expectations for zig and Phoenix1 coming into their series on Saturday.
Game 1 saw a little bit of hope, however, for the beaten down P1. In the initial lane swap, Phoenix was not nearly as far behind TSM as most teams usually are. They kept up with the tempo enough that they forced TSM into more commitment for the early Dragon. They used their speed to collapse on an over-aggressive Hauntzer and kill him for first blood.
This gave zig the lane he needed as he started to push it in aggressively towards Hauntzer, picking up several more kills on his lane opponent. He outdueled TSM's top laner, and he coordinated well enough with the rest of his team that TSM wasn't able to get big objectives off the map.
The issue was that zig and Inori also weren't gaining any map advantage from the kills, and so when zig joined his team in a teleport fight bottom side, they simply weren't strong enough to beat TSM's superior teamfighting skills.
In Game 2, P1 no longer came out even from the lane swaps, as some careful greed from Hauntzer gave him extra experience and the ability to safely farm under turret against the duo lane while zig was both zoned off and occasionally killed by a gank. This lack of farm trapped him in the top lane, unable to teleport in for most of the early fights, and the lack of gold made him unable to tank the brunt of TSM's damage.
He did come out of the series with an 80 percent kill participation, and hopefully an idea of what to improve upon going into the second half of the split. Struggled mightily in loss Name: Rami "Inori" Charagh Team: Inori, who had been unable to start for weeks thanks to ongoing visa issues, was able to get off to a strong start on Elise. Coming out of the lane swaps, he saw that Hauntzer was over confident and desperate to pick up the CS that he normally gets when TSM wins the tempo game.
Together with Mash and Gate, Inori picked up an easy first blood, zoning Svenskeren out of his blue side jungle at the same time and slashing the momentum his Nidalee had built. He made good calls, revisiting Hauntzer for another kill, this time helping zig, and after a disastrous fight in bottom lane he went back to the well again, further punishing Hauntzer's poor play. However, Inori failed to capitalize on anything from these kills. He never pushed down the top tier two tower even though they had plenty of time after the kills, and when he rotated for the Rift Herald his communication with zig was off and he was forced to take the buff himself.
P1 suffered from their inability to out teamfight TSM, as even when Inori found Svenskeren and surrounded him in the jungle TSM's collapse turned it into an unfavorable trade. In Game 2, Inori had a very poor showing on Rek'sai.
He tried to invade Svenskeren's jungle when his team was pushing down top turret and ended up not only being pushed off by TSM's bot lane, but also leaving Gate behind to give up first blood. Again in the mid game teamfights he failed to land his knock up because of his predictable engage that was easily flashed away from. Besides his mechanical failings, Inori's team communication broke down, leading him to go in when Pirean had just blown his cooldowns, getting both of them killed in the process.
Major factor in ninth straight series loss Name: Choi "Pirean" Jun-Sik Team: Pirean had one of the worst KDA ratios on his entire team at. Mid lane was very quiet at the beginning of Game 1 as opposed to the action in the side lanes, but Pirean was able to keep up with Bjergsen in farm and trades.
It was in the major fight down bottom lane where things really started to go wrong. Pirean and zig both teleported in guaranteeing P1 the numbers advantage, but they were all locked down by one of Bjergsen's double bombs, in addition to him saving Doublelift's life with his ultimate.
The lack of respect coming out of Pirean for the matched teleport ruined the play for them, giving over a 4-for-0 kill advantage when they should have been able to take the fight. After that Pirean seemed to grow a little bit desperate, wanting to make a big play that would get them back into the game. Almost all of P1's aggression was countered by TSM converging and their ability to win teamfights, however.
Despite using Karma, he was often not grouped together with his team and was caught out too far up in bottom lane and killed by Doublelift. Game 2 his mechanics seemed to slip a little bit. He had good setup for ganks on Bjergsen, but simply could not land his chains to convert the damage. Even when he did have fancy feet, it was too late, and his team was not in position to gain anything off of the time Pirean bought them. Barely able to factor into series loss Name: Brandon "Mash" Phan Team: Mash finished with a relatively good KDA ratio of two, but only a 60 percent kill participation.
In Game 1, Phoenix1 managed a rare positive start versus TSM as they were able to match their opposition's lane swap tempo.
