Leaves much to be desired

Chicken was one of the least impactful players in the 1-1 against Hots Lady in the HGC China Phase 2.
ANALYSIS
Game 1 had Chicken playing Malthael on the map Sky Temple. While Chicken did have some good uses of his Tormented Souls heroic, his team was never able to hold their opponents down long enough for it to really have any lasting effect. What Chicken was able to do was apply pressure to the enemy Chromie, often forcing her to use Timeout, which in many cases is the same as taking her out of the fight for good. This entire scenario reiterated itself at the 18-minute mark, with Chicken not having an effective ultimate but still keeping Chromie from doing any real damage by forcing her out of the fight. Game 2 had Chicken on Leoric playing beyond bad. Not only was the hero a sub-optimal draft choice, he also played poorly, dying constantly throughout the entire match. If one was to sum up the entire experience in one word, you wouldn't be able to hear it over the constant sighs from the announcers.
Minimal impact

Chicken did very little in the 1-1 round robin match against Super Perfect Team in the HGC China Phase 2.
ANALYSIS
Chicken struggled on Malthael in Game 1 on the map Braxus Holdout. Even though he was in an advantageous matchup, 1-vs-1 with the enemy Ragnaros, Chicken still managed to lose. While it wasn't caught on camera, we did notice that Chicken actually died at roughly the eight-minute mark to his solo opponent, one that he should be able to easily defeat. For the remainder of the game, Chicken was caught out multiple times, often using his heroic in a failed attempt to survive. This left Chicken as a mostly ineffective player for the majority of Game 1. Game 2 was a much better showing for Chicken as he played Leoric on the map Towers of Doom. Catching the enemy Reghar out multiple times with his Entomb should have won his team the game. Unfortunately, Super Perfect Team was running a Medivh who negated any follow up damage RPG could have provided.
