Decent Taric performance not enough to claim victory
January 20, 2018
KaSing earned a 1/2/4 KDA on Taric in his team's defeat against Fnatic on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Although his team didn't claim victory against Fnatic, KaSing showed his individual skill in the defeat. Picking up the first two kills for his team thanks to excellent positioning, he brought Splyce signs of life throughout the game. Participating in all but one of his team's kills, his ability to get involved was critical to his team's chance at coming back in the game. Although the rest of his team was unable to pick up the slack, he did his best in an attempt to make things happen. After losing back-to-back teamfights, his dream at a comeback was over. Though he died twice in the game, he was able to show his potential, bringing hope for Splyce moving into future games.
Strong showing not enough to claim victory
January 20, 2018
Kobbe earned a 1/0/4 KDA on Tristana in his team's loss against Fnatic on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Without much going for him in the early game, Kobbe was forced to play for the late game as his team fell behind. Though he started taking towers and picking up kills in fights, the rest of his team struggled by his side. Unable to find openings against the enemy team, Kobbe was forced to try and deal what damage he could. Unfortunately for him, it was not nearly enough of an impact in his team's back-to-back teamfight losses, allowing Fnatic to push their advantage and close out the game in 41 minutes.
Outclassed in defeat against Fnatic
January 20, 2018
Nisqy earned a 1/2/4 KDA on Ryze in his team's defeat against Fnatic on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Starting off the game, Nisqy was at an inherent disadvantage that he could never recover from. Without the ability to keep up in lane due to his range, he quickly was pressured against his tower. Without a way to roam, he struggled to create an impact for the rest of his team who fell behind. Though he had some redeeming moments in teamfights, his early disadvantages cost him dearly. Being focused down early, his teamfight presence was less than ideal. Racking up nearly a third of his team's deaths, his lackluster performance resulted in a defeat for Splyce in 41 minutes.
Outjungled heavily in defeat
January 20, 2018
Xerxe earned a 1/3/4 KDA on Sejuani in Splyce's 41-minute loss against Fnatic on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Though Xerxe had a decent midgame performance against Fnatic, his early game was lackluster at best, allowing the enemy team to gain control of the game. After dying early, he struggled to bounce back, failing to find picks and giving up objectives left and right to the enemy team. Though he showed up in teamfights with strong ultimates that caught the enemy carries off guard, it wasn't enough to bring his team back in control of the game. Finishing with a 1/3/4 KDA, he fell short of victory in Splyce's first game of the season.
Struggles in defeat against Fnatic
January 20, 2018
Odoamne earned a 2/3/2 KDA on Gnar in his team's loss against Fnatic on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Odoamne had an extremely rough start to his team's game against Fnatic. On Gnar, he gave up first blood in lane and was quickly killed once again. After falling behind, he had a tough time bouncing back as Fnatic had already built a sizeable lead. Though he started having a short impact in teamfights, the rest of the team felt the impacts of his poor showing to start out the game. As a result, Fnatic used their lead to close out the game in just 41 minutes.
Pairs Rakan with Xayah to successfully dismantle Splyce
January 20, 2018
Hylissang earned a 0/2/7 KDA on Rakan in his team's victory over Splyce on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The new addition to Fnatic had a decent performance in his debut showing against Splyce. After a calm laning phase, he excelled in teamfights, locking down key members of the enemy team to allow Fnatic to push forward with ease. Though he died twice in the victory, he was able to create seven kills for his team. Finding picks in back-to-back teamfights, his Rakan play resulted in Fnatic taking a 41-minute victory.
Thrives despite being heavily focused
January 20, 2018
Rekkles earned a 2/2/4 KDA on Xayah in his team's victory over Splyce on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles had a decent performance in his team's victory over Splyce, despite being heavily focused throughout the entire game. After an uneventful laning phase in which he found a small CS lead and not much else, he was able to join his team to have a minor impact in fights. As Splyce attempted to find a lead in the game, Rekkles found himself victim to heavy focus, racking up two quick deaths. Although this looked like the turning point for Splyce, he was able to bounce back in back-to-back teamfights, resulting in Fnatic closing out the game in 41 minutes.
Uses Azir to great success in victory over Splyce
January 20, 2018
Caps earned a 5/1/2 KDA on Azir in Fnatic's victory over Splyce on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Although it took him a decent amount of time to get involved in kills, once Caps got going on Azir, he never stopped. Racking up a massive CS advantage in lane and out-pressuring his opponent, he was able to assist Fnatic in taking map control early on. After doing so, he had no problem participating in teamfights to output large amounts of damage. Though the enemy team tried to find their way to him time and again, Caps' positioning was superb, allowing him to dominate throughout the remainder of the game. Participating in 70 percent of his team's kills, his excellent play allowed Fnatic to claim a convincing victory in 41 minutes.
Near perfect performance in victory over Splyce
January 20, 2018
Broxah earned a 2/0/7 KDA on Jarvan in Fnatic's 41-minute victory against Splyce on Friday.
ANALYSIS
With a monstrous performance in the early game, Broxah was able to quickly bring Fnatic into the driver's seat against Splyce. With first blood in hand, he was able to start snowballing the game. Picking up every dragon in the game, and two Barons, Fnatic was able to use these neutral objectives to continue dominating Splyce. Participating in nine out of his team's 10 kills, Broxah's performance was crucial to his team's convincing victory.

January 20, 2018
sOAZ earned a 1/1/7 KDA on Ornn in Fnatic's 41-minute victory over Splyce on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Being given one of the strongest champions in the game, sOAZ was able to utilize his pick to gain an early lead. After shutting down his lane opponent, he moved quickly to join his team and dominate the map. As Fnatic gained objectives quickly, he had no problem sticking to key members of the enemy team, allowing his carries to claim teamfight victories. Dying only once in the game, his monstrous play allowed Fnatic to take a convincing victory in the game, starting off the 2018 LCS season with a victory.
