Split pushing monster on Gnar
January 22, 2018
Huni posted a 3/2/4 KDA on Gnar as Echo Fox took its second victory of the split against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Huni's blind pick of Gnar paid off big when Solo decided to pick Ornn into it. After an early gank for first blood, Huni was able to easily run away with a gold lead. The second half was pretty easy for Huni as he pressure side lanes while the rest of Echo Fox took objectives and pushed. When Huni did join up for fights, he always walked away with a kill or assist. It was a fairly easy push for Echo Fox after it secured its second Baron power play of the game.
Solid Zac performance in victory
January 22, 2018
Dardoch scored a 0/1/6 KDA on Zac as Echo Fox took the victory against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Dardoch's first clear jungle path put him in the top lane at the end and his first gank resulted in an easy kill for Huni. He continued to focus on the top half of the Rift as his next gank was into the mid lane and resulted in yet another kill. Echo Fox's solo laners began to run away with gold leads as it headed into the late game and there was little that Clutch Gaming could do to stop it. After securing its second Baron kill of the game, Echo Fox dismantled CG in its base before finishing off the Nexus.
Dominant performance on Azir
January 22, 2018
Fenix earned a 4/0/3 KDA on Azir as Echo Fox continued to roll against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Fenix got his pocket pick, Azir, and absolutely destroyed Febiven's Ryze in lane. He was already running up a lead in CS before getting gank help and padding his lead even further with a kill. The second half was a breeze for Fenix as he was damage carried Echo Fox in teamfights. After securing a second Baron kill, Echo Fox tore through what remained of CG's base and took the victory.
Quiet performance in victory
January 22, 2018
Altec posted a 2/1/3 KDA on Ezreal as Echo Fox won against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Altec got plenty of farming time in the bottom lane as the first half was quiet. Any of the 2-vs-2 skirmishes were fairly even and neither duo got jungle assistance. When it was time to join up for teamfights, Altec performed well before getting a bit greedy during EF's first Baron power play. It would be his only death of the game as EF swiftly put an end to CG's Nexus after securing a second Baron kill.
Deathless performance on Taric
January 22, 2018
Adrian finished with a 0/0/7 KDA on Taric as Echo Fox took the victory against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
There wasn't much action for Adrian in the early game as both teams junglers focused on the top half. The skirmishes were very close but neither bottom lane duo could make any sort of advantage. When Adrian joined up for teamfights in the second half, he began to rake in the assists. He made great use of Dazzle and Cosmic Radiance as Echo Fox dove turrets to pick up kills. All Echo Fox needed was a second Baron power play before pushing to put an end to Clutch Gaming's Nexus.
Questionable counter pick gets destroyed in loss
January 22, 2018
Solo scored a 0/3/3 KDA on Ornn as Clutch Gaming lost to Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The laning phase in the top lane was not kind to Solo as his Ornn got taken down for first blood. The setback came at a horrible time as Solo lost out on a big wave of minions when he was already behind in CS. Once the Rift started to open up, Solo struggled to stop the split push pressure that Huni was applying. When Solo did join up for teamfights, he managed to pick up some assists but Clutch Gaming was getting destroyed and only managed a total of four kills. Clutch Gaming tried to make a stand at the Nexus Turrets but it was too little too late.
Struggled to match rotations in loss
January 22, 2018
LirA posted a 1/1/3 KDA on Sejuani as Clutch Gaming lost to Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
LirA did his best to make the early game as even as possible but his ganks were not enough to make up for the gold deficit that Clutch Gaming was facing. With both of the solo lanes struggling, LirA was running around the rift trying to respond to EF's rotations but was always just a little too slow. Clutch Gaming managed to buy a little time as it put an end to EF's Baron power play with a winning teamfight but couldn't repeat the feat later. After losing a 3-for-0, Clutch Gaming could only watch from the fountain as Echo Fox destroyed its base.
Lackluster performance on Ryze in loss
January 22, 2018
Febiven earned a 1/2/2 KDA on Ryze as Clutch Gaming finished off Sunday's action with a loss to Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
Febiven opted to pick Ryze into Fenix's Azir and it didn't go well for him. He quickly fell behind in the laning phase as Fenix ran away with a CS lead. After giving over a kill, the lane was pretty much lost. Febiven wasn't able to make many impactful roams with Realm Warp and it was mainly used as an escape move. Clutch Gaming managed to stall out the late game but couldn't weather Echo Fox's second Baron power play that wrecked its base.
Solid performance in loss
January 22, 2018
Apollo scored a 2/1/0 KDA on Tristana as Clutch Gaming lost to Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo and Hakuho were Clutch Gaming's only lane that didn't fall behind and weren't enough to stop Echo Fox late. The laning phase was pretty much just a farm fest as the junglers focused on the top side, meaning Apollo didn't see much action until joining up for teamfights in the second half. He managed to pick up a few kills in those fights and his only death came during Clutch Gaming's final stand as it failed to protect the Nexus.
Low impact in loss
January 22, 2018
Hakuho finished with a 0/2/1 KDA on Braum in Clutch Gaming's loss to Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The laning phase was close for Hakuho in the bottom lane as the gold race was close. Hakuho did a pretty good job of protecting Apollo early but wasn't much of a frontline threat late. When Hakuho's Braum tried to protect allies in the teamfights during the second half, he was often too late and it cost him his life. In Clutch Gaming's final stand, Hakuho got blown away almost instantly, leaving the rest of the damage dealers to flee as EF finished off the Nexus.
