Rocks out on Rakan in victory
February 19, 2018
Hakuho's Rakan finished with a 1/0/7 KDA in Clutch Gaming's victory against Team SoloMid on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Clutch Gaming's bottom lane decided to break out the Xayah - Rakan duo and put together a solid performance. The laning phase went smoothly before Hakuho started to roam and help other lanes secure kills and push objectives. Clutch Gaming slowly grew its advantage before pushing to win during its second Baron power play. Hakuho was a big help in the teamfights throughout as he finished with a 80 percent kill participation.
Solid Braum play in win
February 18, 2018
Hakuho finished with a 0/0/9 KDA on Braum in Clutch Gaming's victory against FlyQuest on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho provided plenty of protection in the laning phase as he was able to keep the Morgana and Ezreal in check. Neither duo could get a kill advantage but Hakuho and Apollo were able to contribute a lot more to teamfights than their lane opponents. Clutch Gaming smashed FlyQuest in teamfights as it built its huge lead in gold and objectives. After a second Baron kill, Clutch Gaming was able to easily siege into FlyQuests base and finish off the Nexus.
Can't find much
February 5, 2018
Hakuho's KDA read 0/0/4 by the end of Clutch Gaming's Sunday loss to Cloud9.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho's Taric had a rough go of it on Sunday. He and Apollo did fine in lane, but arguably should have had a lead given the kind of roaming the enemy support was doing. Hakuho, meanwhile, got no such roaming done, and by the time teamfights rolled around, didn't have many options available to him. Cloud9's engages meant he was typically forced to use Cosmic Radiance defensively, which isn't ideal, and Cloud9's backline was incredibly difficult for him to reach. Still, under the circumstances, a 0/0/4 scoreline isn't bad.
Crucial crowd control
January 28, 2018
Hakuho's scoreline read 1/1/16 at the end of CG's win over CLG on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Playing Morgana, Hakuho was a big part of the reason why CG took such a crushing win Saturday. His late game was rather average, which was all it needed to be with how hard Febiven was carrying, but his early game was where he shined. A series of great Dark Bindings and Soul Shackles helped his team win early engagements, which is where Febiven picked up his early kills.
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.
Solid CC facilitates win
January 21, 2018
Hakuho went 1/0/5 as Clutch Gaming took down Golden Guardians on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho's Ornn wasn't anything exceptional in lane, as the bottom lane was largely a wash, but he did participate in a mid lane play that netted two kills for CG. Afterwards, he did his job just fine as a meat shield and ultimate bot as CG breezed their way to an easy win.
On his way to join Clutch Gaming
November 21, 2017
Hakuho is set to join Clutch Gaming alongside two former EnVy teammates, according to Jacob Wolf of ESPN.
ANALYSIS
Coming off an upswing in his performance during the end of the LCS season, it is no surprise that Hakuho has found his way onto an LCS team given EnVyUs did not get accepted into the NA LCS. He is set to join Clutch Gaming alongside former teammates LirA and Apollo to build the core of the organization's roster. After showing his own skill as well as synergy with his former team, Hakuho is sure to impress during Clutch Gaming's introduction to the league.
Mayor of hook city
August 22, 2017
Hakuho went 7/13/38 overall in NV's 2-3 loss to CLG on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho's Game 1 on Thresh wasn't anything amazing, as his team was generally crushed. However, his Games 2 and 3 on the champion, in which he earned nearly identical KDAs of 1/2/12 and 1/2/11, were so impressive that they prompted bans of not just Thresh, but also Blitzcrank in the next two games, with CLG hoping to alleviate the pressure from Hakuho's hooks. Hakuho was having none of it, however, and simply picked Nautilus. The pick worked out arguably just as well as Thresh had, but unfortunately the team as a whole wasn't quite able to eke out a win in Games 4 and 5.
Solid effort in Game 2
August 7, 2017
Hakuho put up a 0/7/11 KDA at the end of NV's 0-2 Saturday loss to Cloud9.
ANALYSIS
NV were utterly torn apart in Game 1, so his KDA of 0/5/2 on Morgana has to be taken in context. In Game 2, his respectable 0/2/9 KDA on Thresh underlies his strength in this game, as his hooks were on point and his fantastic Flay at a Baron fight could've easily won the game for NV, had his team not thrown away their advantage.
Low impact in series loss
August 5, 2017
Hakuho finished Team EnVyUs' series loss to Immortals on Friday with a 1/7/6 KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Hakuho's Thresh had little impact on teamfights. Hakuho was often killed without getting a kill or assist as EnVy got destroyed in teamfights. Without managing to win a teamfight or secure a pick, EnVy couldn't push for objectives and quickly found itself in a huge gold deficit that there was no hope of crawling out of. In Game 2 Hakuho had a better performance on Blitzcrank as he earned a 1/2/3 KDA. While the first half went well for Hakuho, the teamfights in the second half were rough as he couldn't land Rocket Grabs on any high priority targets.
Doesn't provide much support in loss
July 30, 2017
Hakuho went 0/4/9 in EnVyUs's loss against CLG on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho played Braum in both games of this series, and never had a sizeable impact in either game. Sure, his entire team was playing from behind from start to finish, but with a champion like Braum, one would think that Hakuho could have done a bit more to affect the game. This one mainly came down to the fact that the bot lane duo of EnVyUs was simply no match for that of CLG, which easily led to their demise.
Bounced back nicely after poor Game 1 performance
July 24, 2017
Hakuho scored a 3/4/25 KDA in Team EnVyUs' reverse sweep of FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho didn't have a great start to the series as he put together a lowly 0/3/2 KDA performance on Karma in Game 1. EnVy had an early lead, but started to fall apart in the mid game teamfights, struggling to get through FLY's massive frontline. In Game 2 Hakuho was able to provide better engages for EnVy on Zyra. Hakuho hit a nice Grasping roots that won an early 2-vs-2 skirmish and got the bottom lane duo a gold lead. EnVy dominated the trades throughout the rest of the game as Hakuho finished with a 1/0/6 KDA. In Game 3 Hakuho's Morgana secured first blood with some gank assistance. After the laning phase Hakuho rotated the map, racking up assists on his way to a 2/1/17 KDA.
Good Tahm Kench/Ashe synergy in Game 2
July 17, 2017
Hakuho finished Team EnVyUs' 2-1 series victory against Echo Fox on Sunday with a 0/3/17 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho had a rough start to the series as he scored a 0/2/2 KDA in Game 1 on Thresh. EnVy got picked off as Echo Fox ran away with a lead in objectives. There was little he could do against EF's second Baron power play that destroyed EnVy's base. In Game 2 Hakuho put together a impressive 0/0/11 KDA on Tahm Kench. He synergized Abyssal Voyage well with Ashe's Enchanted Crystal Arrow, shooting from the fog of war and teleporting to the target to finish. EnVy was the team to dominate the engages in Game 2 as it finished with 19 kills and two deaths. In Game 3 Hakuho return to Thresh and had a redeeming 0/1/4 KDA performance. The low action Game 3 didn't see first blood until 16 minutes in as both teams tried to passively farm. EnVy managed to secure a lead in objectives and ran away with a lead after a Baron power play at the 30-minute mark.
Solid performance on Morgana in loss
July 1, 2017
Hakuho finished Team EnVyUs' series loss to Phoenix1 on Friday with a 1/5/17 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho wasn't able to get much done in Thresh in Game 1 as EnVy got torn apart in teamfights. He made some nice saves with Thresh's lantern in the first half, but it wasn't enough late as he finished with a lowly 0/2/2 KDA. Hakuho picked up his play the rest of the series on Morgana and had a 1/3/10 KDA performance in Game 2. His bindings were on point and set up plenty of kills on his way to a 73 percent kill participation. In Game 3 Hakuho's Morgana continued to perform well, protecting his carries with Black Shield and safely kiting out fights. Hakuho's kiting skills helped him escape death in Game 3 as he finished with a 0/0/5 KDA, but he couldn't save the rest of his team as EnVy dropped the series.
Mediocre throughout defeat
June 6, 2017
Hakuho finished Team EnVyUs' loss to Team Dignitas Saturday with a 3/4/16 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Hakuho failed to make much of an impact at all against DIG this series. He paired his Rakan with the Xayah of Apollo for Game 1, but the duo lane failed to accomplish much of anything, getting two assists on the first two kills of the game and gaining nothing for its remainder. He had a solid 2/0/6 KDA on Karma in Game 2, but this was largely due to the safety of his pick and his team's enormous advantage in the win. For Game 3 he picked a third unique champion in Thresh, and failed to get anything done on the pick. He got almost no assists early on in the game as Dignitas took a lead, and while he got a decent handful of them as EnVyUs attempted a comeback, none of the kills were set up by him, and often he simply tossed in an unnecessary lantern for credit.
