2018 NA LCS Summer Split
Los Angeles
Team Liquid shrugged off the "Forever Fourth" memes and claimed the NA LCS title for the first time in franchise history. The Summer Split is where things should really heat up, though, as teams are fighting for a trip to the World Championships this fall. Will Liquid repeat as champions? Or will the likes of 100 Thieves, Echo Fox, or Team SoloMid unseat Liquid to earn that ticket to worlds?

Biofrost earned a 0/2/3 KDA on Braum during his team's loss against FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the entire game against FlyQuest, Biofrost was simply unable to get anything done during his team's defeat. After dying early on, he faltered, struggling to get vision for his team or provide a single opening. Though he was able to join for teamfights and skirmishes, he couldn't find his way onto key enemy members, simply providing minimal crowd control. As the enemy team focused down his carries, Biofrost struggled to maintain vision to bring his team back into things. Ultimately unable to do so, he was simply not able to do enough to keep his team safe. As a result, CLG was defeated in 32 minutes.
Finds all kills in loss
August 13, 2018
Stixxay earned a 3/3/0 KDA on Varus during his team's loss to FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
Although CLG had a horrible performance against FlyQuest, Stixxay was the sole member on his team able to find even a single kill during his team's loss. After picking up an early kill in lane, he began struggling to get anything done as the rest of his team couldn't find even a single opening. Though he was able to scale up and outfarm his opponent, the rest of his team was unable to mimic his performance. This resulted in Stixxay being unable to carry during teamfights, dealing decent damage but being heavily focused in the process. Try as he might, he could not bring things back into the game, resulting in his team picking up a 32-minute loss.

After giving up an early kill against FlyQuest, Huhi was never able to recover. As his team fell behind quickly in the game, he found himself unable to scale up as needed in order to create any sort of an impact. Though he was able to deal a decent amount of damage, it was never enough to find a kill for his team. As skirmishes continued to erupt, he tried to keep himself safe but was not able to find an impact at the same time. As a result, FlyQuest was able to take several teamfights in a row, closing out the game in 32 minutes.
Unable to facilitate win
August 13, 2018
Reignover earned a 0/2/2 KDA on Gragas during his team's loss at the hands of FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
After falling behind in the early game, Reignover began to struggle to recover. His laners constantly found themselves caught out, resulting in FLY picking up a swift advantage in the game. Although Reignover was able to pick things up and begin looking for openings for his team, he could not find the initiations that his team needed to win teamfights. Though he had several decent opportunities, none of them came to fruition due to the rest of his team's disadvantages. Try as he might, he couldn't do enough for his team, allowing FLY to secure victory in the game.

August 13, 2018
Keane earned a 2/1/5 KDA on Ryze during his team's victory over CLG.
ANALYSIS
Despite being in an unfavorable matchup, Keane was able to start things off against CLG with great success. Finding a huge lead in lane, he not only outfarmed his opponent, but also focused on finding advantages across the rest of the map for the rest of his team. This paid off massively, allowing him to continue taking the lead, finding skirmishes and dominating in them. Despite being focused in one of the final pushes of the game, resulting in his only death, Keane bounced back immediately, picking up a few more kills for his team to close out the game and secure a victory after 32 minutes.

After winning back-to-back team fights, he was able to secure a 32-minute victory for Flyquest.
Dominates on Rumble to eliminate CLG from Playoffs
August 13, 2018
Flame earned a 2/1/5 KDA on Rumble during his team's victory over CLG.
ANALYSIS
From the very start of the game, Flame showed how to simply outclass your opponent. After outfarming in lane, he was able to roam and begin assisting his team in skirmishes. Dealing huge amounts of damage, he was able to quickly bring his team a large advantage. Despite being focused in these skirmishes due to his lack of mobility and focus on dealing large amounts of damage, Flame was able to remain relatively safe as things progressed. Though he didn't participate in all of the team's kills, he was able to land huge equalizers that kept his team in the game. As a result, FlyQuest took a convincing 32-minute victory.
Deathless in victory
August 13, 2018
Ryu earned a 4/0/8 KDA on Zoe during his team's victory over Echo Fox on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Throughout his recent performances, Ryu has been instrumental to his team's victory, dominating his lane opponents time and again. His game against Echo Fox was no different as he stormed into the game on one of his best champions and made short work of his opponents. After finding a lead in lane, he quickly grouped with his team to begin dominating in skirmishes. Constantly hitting his crowd control, he skirted the line of playing safe and dealing damage. This paid off, allowing him to deal huge amounts of damage while still keeping himself out of the enemies reach. After dominating several teamfights, he allowed his team to pick up a 29-minute victory in the game.
