ANALYSIS

Struggles in odd roles
December 18, 2017
N0tail looked a bit lost in OG's 2-1 victory over compLexity in the Wild Card Finals at The Summit 8, finished with an average KDA of 2/5/10.
ANALYSIS
N0tail played Dragon Knight in Game 1 with mediocre results, serving as mostly a damage sponge and tower siege weapon while Resolut1on did the rest. N0tail finished with a 1/3/12 KDA. In Game 2, N0tail was heavily targeted as Tiny managing very little and finished with a 1/11/6 KDA. In Game 3, N0tail found success as Broodmother, dealing 4.4k building damage en route to a win finishing with a 5/1/12 KDA.
Helps OG edge out compLexity
December 18, 2017
JerAx finished OG's 2-1 victory over compLexity during the Wild Card Finals at The Summit 8 with an average KDA of 2/4/13.
ANALYSIS
JerAx played Earth Spirit in Game 1, assisting Resolut1on's Anti-Mage in an off-lane tri-lane with Fly's Shadow Demon. JerAx helped secure the lane for his carry leading to a perfect game for Resolut1on. Jerax finished Game 1 with a final KDA of 3/3/12. Game 2 saw JerAx struggle on Tusk, after winning his dual lane with s4's Puck. OG was unable to enforce their presence on the map despite a bevy of mobile heroes. JerAx finished Game 2 with a final KDA of 1/7/7. JerAx returned to Earth Spirit in Game 3, where he helped win Resolut1on's lane once again, earning OG the series and finishing with a 2/2/21 KDA.
Summit 8 road ends in a quick loss
December 17, 2017
kacor had a tough time in a 0-2 loss to Virtus.pro at the Summit 8. He finished with an Average KDA of 2/7/11.5.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 kacor played Tusk but really struggled to have much impact. Tusk looks a lot less powerful when playing from behind like kacor and Kinguin were. Snowball saves turn into deaths, and Tusk's burst and lockdown were simply not enough against a team with a sizable lead. He finished with a 1/5/7 KDA. Game 2 was a similar struggle for kacor, who was on Bounty Hunter this time. He found a couple of good kills, but other than that is was an uphill battle for kacor to get anything done. He finished with a 3/9/16 KDA.
Nice Game 2 score does little to salvage the series
December 17, 2017
eL LisasH finished with an average KDA of 5.5/4.5/9.5 in a tough 0-2 loss to Virtus.pro at the Summit 8.
ANALYSIS
eL LisasH played Shadow Shaman in Game 1 but struggled to have much impact in fights. He died a lot, often without getting to cast his spells. He finished with a 1/7/10 KDA. In Game 2 eL LisasH played Ancient Apparition. Despite finishing the game with a 10/2/9 KDA, this impressive statline did little to actually help Kinguin win the game. The extra gold on eL LisasH didn't do as much as it would have on a core, and Kinguin eventually lost.
Brutal loss for the Kinguin offlane
December 17, 2017
Patos had a very tough time in a 0-2 loss to Virtus.pro at the Summit 8. He finished with an average KDA of 1.5/7.5/5.5.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Patos played Omniknight, but couldn't keep his team alive through the onslaught that Virtus.pro was throwing at them. There was more than enough damage and mobility on Virtus pro for them to kite out Patos' Guardian Angel, leaving Kinguin very weak in straight up fights. Patos finished with a 1/5/4 KDA. Game 2 was even worse for Patos. This time he was on Tidehunter, and struggled all game to land a single impactful Ravage. He was very underleveled all game, and gave up a lot of deaths. He finished with a 2/10/7 KDA.
Decent Game 1 not nearly enough to pull Kinguin through
December 17, 2017
Nisha finished with an average KDA of 3.5/6.5/5 in a rough 0-2 loss to Virtus.pro at the Summit 8.
ANALYSIS
Nisha played Weaver in Game 1, but didn't have a very good time. Despite all his mobility, Virtus.pro still pinned him down in fights and kill him. When Nisha was actually allowed to weave around fights he did good damage, but he was usually limited to nothing more than a support kill or two. He finished with a 6/2/7 KDA. In Game 2 Nisha played Puck. This was no improvement on Game 1 unfortunately. Nisha was bullied around for most of the game, and found himself unable to get much done even with all his mobility. The Virtus.pro lineup was just too durable and far ahead. Nisha finished with a 4/7/12 KDA.
Outclassed by Virtus.pro
December 17, 2017
Exotic_Deer had a rough series in a 0-2 loss to Virtus.pro at the Summit 8. He finished with an average KDA of 3.5/6.5/5.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Exotic_Deer had a miserable time on Lycan. He wasn't able to get anything done against the many excellent counters to his hero on Virtus pro's team. There wasn't anyone that Exotic_Deer could man up on and fight, and he also couldn't split push very well, leaving Kinguin without many options. He finished with a 4/5/5 KDA. Exotic_Deer had another horrible experience in Game 2, this time as Lifestealer. He was essentially the only carry on Kinguin, up against a Razor. Even in a close game, this would have been a hopeless case for Exotic_Deer. He finished with a 3/8/5 KDA.
Shows off his moves against Kinguin
December 17, 2017
Lil played an excellent series in Virtus.pro's 2-0 win against Kinguin at the Summit 8. He finished with an average KDA of 4.5/5/15.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Lil played Ogre Magi, a bit of an unusual hero for him. Despite usually getting the more action-oriented position four heroes, Lil still managed to make Ogre work in that position. He was super active in the early game, before transitioning into the classic Bloodlust bot we all know and love in the later stages of the game. He finished with a 4/5/15 KDA. In Game 2 Lil played Clockwerk. Back on a hero more his style, this was a much better example of how Lil typically plays. He was ruthless in his early movements, and transitioned very smoothly into a strong initiator and teamfight disruptor. He finished with a 5/5/16 KDA.
Initiates his way to a clean Virtus.pro win
December 17, 2017
9pasha finished with an average KDA of 4.5/3.5/11.5 in a commanding win over Kinguin at the Summit 8.
ANALYSIS
9pasha played Batrider in Game 1. He was an extremely effective initiator for Virtus.pro all game, grabbing important targets and bringing them back to his teammates. He finished with a 3/2/12 KDA. In Game 2 9pasha played Morphling in the offlane. Although not usually where Morphling is played, this is something 9pasha has done in the past to equally as much success. He built utility items like Eul's Scepter and Solar Crest and used his stun and waveform to create chaos in fights and make space for his teammates. He finished with a 6/5/11 KDA.
Rolls over Kinguin
December 17, 2017
No[o]ne was excellent in Virtus.pro's 2-0 win against Kinguin at the Summit 8. He finished with an average KDA of 9/2.5/10.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 No[o]ne played an excellent Tiny. He was a constant threat all around the map to Kinguin's heroes, able to quickly burst down the enemy supports in fights. His positioning all game was excellent as well, only giving up a single death. He finished with an 11/1/7 KDA. No[o]ne played Tiny again in Game 2, once again to great effect. Although he didn't manage to post as good of a KDA in this game, coming in a 7/4/13, he was extremely effective at making space for Ramzes' Razor, who dominated the game.
Advances to the Summit 8 finals with ease
December 17, 2017
Ramzes looked clearly in command during Virtus.pro's 2-0 win against Kinguin at the Summit 8. He finished with a 7.5/1.5/13.5 average KDA.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes started out the series with a nice relaxing Medusa game. He got off to a nice start, got his Mask of Madness and then farmed up the rest of his items very quickly. In fights, he was practically impossible to bring down. The one time Kinguin brought Ramzes down, it cost them all their spells and damage. He finished with a 3/1/14 KDA. In Game 2 Ramzes dominated with Razor. After a pair of early game deaths, Ramzes totally took over the game. He had two easy targets to steal damage from with Static Link, Lifestealer, and Tidehunter, which made fighting incredibly simple for Ramzes. He finished with a 12/2/13 KDA.
Excellent series from the OG captain
December 16, 2017
Fly lead his team to an impressive 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses at the Summit 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 4/6/21.
ANALYSIS
Fly played a very solid Game 1. His Shadow Shaman was a key piece of OG's pushing power, and his disables were also very important in fights for OG. He finished with a 0/5/15 KDA. In Game 2 Fly went back to Shadow Shaman again, and for good reason. His Serpent Wards allowed OG to turn decent fight wins into objective pushes that expanded their lead extremely rapidly. In the later portions of the game, a single won fight was all it took for OG to storm down the entire EG base. Fly finished with a 4/1/6 KDA.
Advances further in the wild card bracket at the Summit 8
December 16, 2017
JerAx played a great series in a 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses at the Summit 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 12/10/25.
ANALYSIS
JerAx started the series on Tusk, one of his most played heroes. He was extremely effective with all his spells against EG, providing disables, saves and some decent burst damage. He finished with a 10/6/15 KDA. In Game 2 JerAx played Nyx Assassin. He was an integral part of the OG game plan, providing critical vision for his team. JerAx's scouting helped set up for lots of kills and fights that all ended up in OG's favor. He finished with a 2/4/10 KDA.
