Focus on tanks
January 15, 2018
Duke ended Monday's 1-2 loss to RNG with a 5/6/10 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Duke and iG took the LPL heavyweights to three games but ultimately fell short in game three to drop the first series of the new season. Duke focused on playing tanks throughout the three-game series, playing two games of Ornn and a game of Maokai. In Game 1, Duke used Ornn to finish with a 3/1/3 KDA. He was able to effectively set up kills in teamfights by utilizing Call of the Forge Lord to finish tied for the team-high in kills. In Game 2, Duke used Maokai and finished with a 0/2/2 KDA. He struggled to have much impact on the game but did have an assist on two of iG's three kills as RNG evened the series. Returning to Ornn in Game 3, Duke finished with a 2/3/5 KDA. He played fairly well, ending with the third highest kill total and second highest assist total on the team.
Ties for team high kill total
January 15, 2018
Ning finished Day 1 of the LPL season with a 7/7/9 KDA as iG dropped a 1-2 decision to RNG.
ANALYSIS
Ning ended Game 1 with a 3/0/5 KDA as Kha'zix. He was unkillable while tying for the team high kill total and ending the game involved in eight of 12 kills. In Game 2, Ning played Ivern and finished with a 1/2/1 KDA. He struggled to really get anything going for his laners, but managed to be involved in two of three kills as RNG evened the series. Returning to Kha'zix in Game 3, Ning earned a 3/5/3 KDA. He finished involved in six of 11 kills, ending with the second highest kill total as RNG completed the reverse sweep. Ning looked much more comfortable on Kha'zix in the series than he did on a more supportive champion like Ivern.
Highest kill participation on iG
January 15, 2018
Rookie finished Monday's loss to RNG with a 7/9/14 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Rookie helped carry iG to a win in Game 1 after finishing the game with a 3/1/8 KDA as Orianna. He was involved in all but one kill, tying for the team-high in kills while leading iG in assists. In Game 2, Rookie used Azir and finished with a 0/1/2 KDA. He was involved in two of three kills but never got an opportunity to carry as iG fell behind from a fairly early stage. Using Taliyah in Game 3, Rookie earned a 4/7/4 KDA. He was involved in eight of 11 kills, leading iG in kills, but also finishing the game with his team's highest death total. Rookie is the shining star on iG and he will hope to return the team to the top levels of the LPL during the new season.
Unable to carry in LPL debut
January 15, 2018
JackeyLove finished his first career LPL match with a combined 5/8/13 KDA as iG dropped a 1-2 series to RNG.
ANALYSIS
JackeyLove ended Game 1 with a 3/1/7 KDA as Ezreal. He helped carry iG by being involved in 10 of 12 kills while tying for the team-high in kills with three. In Game 2, JackeyLove struggled ending with a 0/5/2 KDA as Kalista. He had an assist on two of three kills but ended the game with his team's highest death total as RNG took Game 2. For the deciding Game 3, JackeyLove returned to Ezreal and earned a 2/2/4 KDA. He was involved in only six of 11 kills, finishing tied for the third highest kill total in the game. It wasn't a terrible debut for the young AD Carry and it gives him something to build on moving forward.
Excels in Game 1 before slowly falling off
January 15, 2018
Baolan ended Monday's loss to RNG with a 2/8/16 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Baolan ended Game 1 with a 0/1/9 KDA as Tahm Kench. He was involved in nine of 12 kills, leading iG in assists during the only game of the series they won. In Game 2, Baolan used Braum and finished with a 2/3/0 KDA. He picked up two of iG's three kills in the game but struggled to set any kills up as RNG evened the series. For the final game of the series, Baolan used Leona and earned a 0/4/7 KDA. He was picked up an assist on seven of 11 kills, leading iG in assists, but not doing enough to give iG an opening day win.
