Re-signs with Samsung Galaxy
November 20, 2017
Samsung Galaxy announced via their Facebook account this morning that they would be re-signing their entire 2017 roster, including Ambition.
It should come as little surprise that Samsung has opted to retain the services of their 2017 lineup, especially since it's also the same lineup they deployed at Worlds 2016 during their run to the grand finals. Even less surprising is the fact that they have decided to retain the services of their veteran jungler, Ambition, who is often regarded as the brain behind the team. It seems the newlywed's honeymoon might again need to wait, as Samsung Galaxy seems intent on reprising their successes from 2017 during the 2018 season.
Average objective control, fantastic shotcalling
November 6, 2017
Ambition posted a 2/3/30 KDA in Samsung Galaxy's series over SK Telecom T1 on Saturday.
Ambition picked Zac going into Game 1. His 100 percent kill participation in the game illustrates how influential Ambition was in setting up picks and kills in the chess-like game. He did have a massive misstep early smiting Baron and giving it to SKT, but he was a playmaker outside of that. Game 2 saw Ambition lock in Jarvan IV with about the same overall success as the game before. Ambition did falter when it came to controlling Dragons and getting Rift Herald, but he made up for it in the late game. Game 3 was tough for Ambition's Sejuani, especially in the early game. Samsung's victory in the game was more thanks to Ruler and misplays from SKT. Overall, Ambition's shotcalling and vision control were superb. It nullified the mechanical and early game advantages SKT found, therefore paving the way for Samsung to win it all.
Dominating Kha'Zix performance
October 13, 2017
Ambition finished Friday's win over 1907 Fenerbahce with a 4/1/8 KDA as Kha'Zix.
Ambition pulled out a carry jungler and ran riot over Fenerbahce on Friday. He was involved in 12 of 14 kills, tying for the team-high kill participation, while finishing second in both kills and assists. Ambition's strong performance got Samsung out to a strong Week 2 start as they inched a step closer to the knockout stages.
No luck getting laners ahead
October 7, 2017
Ambition ended Saturday's loss to RNG with a 0/2/0 KDA as Sejuani.
Ambition struggled to do anything in the early game, hurting Samsung's scaling laners chances of becoming relevant. With Samsung unable to pick up a single kill, Ambition's two deaths were tied for the second-highest total on the team. Samsung and Ambition will look to bounce back against Fenerbahce on Sunday.
Strong performance in both game wins
August 1, 2017
Ambition ended Tuesday's win over ROX with a 0/3/16 combined KDA.
Ambition finished Game 1 with a 0/1/6 KDA as Jarvan IV. He had an assist on first blood and finished the game with an assist on six of ten kills. In Game 2, Ambition used Elise and finished with a 0/2/3 KDA. He had 100 percent kill participation, but struggled to snowball the game with Samsung managing only three kills. For Game 3, Ambition earned a 0/0/7 KDA as Gragas. He was unkillable, picking up an assist on the first four Samsung kills. He finished the game with an assist on seven of 11 kills as Samsung finished the series.
Rockin' the Rek'sai
July 24, 2017
Ambition had a decent 4/3/7 KDA against MVP on Friday.
Ambition played Rek'Sai in both games he entered against MVP. Per usual, he looked pretty good on the champion with great mechanics and solid vision control. His Game 2 KDA of 1/1/7 is perfect for a Rek'Sai because it shows how active he was on early ganks that helped his team get ahead however his Game 3 KDA of 3/2/0 tells a much different story. Rek'Sai taking kills generally means sloppy play because the champion is not equipped to be a late game carry. The absence of a single assist shows that MVP was wise to his gank style the second time the teams entered the Rift.
MVP Performance during victory over SKT T1
July 13, 2017
Ambition took home the Game 2 MVP as well as an 11/4/20 KDA during Samsung Galaxy's victory over SKT T1.
The last time we saw Ambition on the Rift, he was a shadow of his former self. He was so abysmal against Ever8 that he was subbed out for Haru for the second time this split. Well, his underperformance on Rek'Sai now makes perfect sense, as he was clearly busy preparing his pocket pick for his match, and the results were well worth the sandbagging. Ambition treated fans of the LCK to the premiere of jungle Sejuani, and it was a pick that SKT T1 was so unprepared for that it could almost be said that it won the game all on its own. She might not be able to do much in the early game, but Sejuani proved her worth once the teamfights started rolling in and she started locking down all of SKT T1's many melee champions with Permafrost. Ambition's control of teamfights assured that no one on SKT T1 could ever reach Ruler in either game, a feat he managed while also tanking up Bang's Kalista, which might as well have been a gnat for all that damage it could do to Ambition and his Warmog's Armor. Don't be surprised if we see Sejuani bans in the future when teams take on Samsung. If it can take down SKT T1 even while they're running Blank, who was undefeated in 20 games before this match, then it can take down anyone.
Shaky in Game 1
July 11, 2017
Ambition ended Samsung's Game 1 win over Ever8 with a 0/4/4 KDA as Rek'sai.
Ambition was shaky early, dying often and giving Ever8 a huge gold lead through the mid game. He finished the game involved in 50 percent of Samsung's kills, but didn't pick up his first assist until the 32nd minute. Ambition's early game struggles were cleared up late, as Ever8 couldn't find a way to close out the game, allowing Samsung to come back for the win.
Insane KDA overshadows very real struggles
July 6, 2017
Ambition finished Samsung's victory over EDG with a 5/0/7 KDA.
Ambition came away from Samsung's victory over EDG with a KDA that looked incredibly out of place considering how much Samsung, and Ambition in particular, struggled during the match. He managed to escape death for the whole series for a pretty simple reason: he was rarely where he needed to be to help his team. Samsung's mid game was a quagmire where both teams struggled to come out on top -- a struggle that Samsung only won thanks to the copacetic teamfighting of CuVee. Ambition's Gragas initiated all of zero teamfights for the entire game, and the fact that CuVee hit more five-man GNAR!!!s than Ambition managed to hit Explosive Casks reveals exactly how little of an impact Ambition had on the game once it passed the 15-minute mark. While such lackadaisical play might have served Samsung well enough against EDG, it's not going to cut it when they're sent up against teams like RNG, WE, or even the Flash Wolves. Ambition is going to need to step up in a big way soon, or make room for a certain former CJ Entus teammate who will.
Utilizes new-look Rek'Sai
June 28, 2017
Ambition finished Wednesday's 2-1 win over Longzhu with a 7/8/13 combined KDA.
Ambition used Gragas in Game 1 to finish with a 0/2/4 KDA. He had 50 percent kill participation, managing only four assists in the Game 1 loss. In Game 2, Ambition used Rek'Sai to earn a 4/5/9 KDA. He was involved in 13 of Samsung's 21 kills in Game 2, helping to even the series. Using Rek'Sai again in Game 3, Ambition ended with a 3/1/0 KDA. He was involved in only three of Samsung's nine kills, but helped get his team ahead to take down Longzhu in a fairly one-sided final game.
