FlyQuest
Bumped up to main roster
April 28, 2018
Keane will be the starting mid laner for FlyQuest during the Summer Split, Jacob Wolf of ESPN esports reports.
ANALYSIS
While Keane has been seen playing with FlyQuest during the Spring Split, he was still technically part of the team's Academy roster. He will now be bumped up to the main roster for the Summer Split where he will receive full-time starting duties. The team clearly liked what it saw from Keane during the Spring as it decided to release Fly in favor of the veteran moving forward.
Focused down by CLG
February 5, 2018
Keane finished FlyQuest's Sunday loss against CLG with a 1/4/1 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Keane's Orianna was highly unimpactful in this game, tallying the lowest kill participation and nearly tying for the most deaths. To be fair, his lack of mobility made him the target of most of CLG's engagements, and his team as a whole is largely to blame for his deaths, due to lack of positioning and awareness in the later stages of the game. Still, this was not a good look for Keane.
Can't stop feeding vs Liquid
February 5, 2018
Keane struggled against Liquid on Saturday in FlyQuest's loss, posting a 1/6/1 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Keane's Galio was certainly no hero for FlyQuest against Liquid, as Keane couldn't do anything against Liquid's powerful double marksmen composition. Even with an early level two gank from ShrimP's J4, Keane got muscled out of the middle lane before FlyQuest took a couple of losing engagements. Every time Keane used his Heroic Entrance, he couldn't save any of his teammates or make any impact whatsoever before getting shredded apart, leading to a 1/6/1 KDA. It wasn't strictly Keane's fault, but he came out all the worse after 27 blistering minutes of Liquid dominance.
Solid teamfighting late in comeback
January 28, 2018
Keane earned a 3/4/10 KDA on Ryze as FlyQuest took a victory against the Golden Guardians on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Keane picked up some kills early, but couldn't sustain the momentum in the mid game. He got caught out of position a few times and couldn't Realm Warp to safety as he got locked down by GG's crowd control. FlyQuest was soon stuck in base trying to by time as GG's siege started to take out inhibitors. The Golden Guardians, however, got a bit too greedy and began to overstay, leaving openings for FlyQuest to climb back in. FlyQuest started to string together teamfight victories, evening up turrets and gold, before forcing and winning a smite fight over Baron. With the powerful buff in hand, FlyQuest quickly took a 3-for-1 teamfight win and pushed for the win.
Doesn't balk against Bjergsen
January 21, 2018
Keane went 5/1/8 in FlyQuest's win over Team SoloMid on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Sure, Keane never managed to actually take down Bjergsen in this game. But kills aren't all that matter, as he can chalk this up as a win by virtue of preventing the star TSM mid laner from popping off. His Azir looked very crispy from start to finish, picking up kills and pouring on the damage all game long. Could this be the year for Keane to finally come alive? Only time will tell.
Starting in Week 1
January 19, 2018
Keane has announced he will start for FlyQuest during Week 1 as a substitute for Fly.
ANALYSIS
Keane will fill in for Fly during Week 1 games against Echo Fox and Team SoloMid. It is unknown at this time why Fly will miss out, but FlyQuest will lean on the veteran Keane for the opening week of the season.
Lackluster showing in series loss against FlyQuest
September 13, 2017
Keane earned a series KDA of 2/6/7 in his team's 0-3 loss.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the entire series against FlyQuest, Keane struggled to get much of anything done, faltering in lane and never able to recover. He started off Game 1 with a poor showing on Orianna, falling behind swiftly in lane and doing nothing to attempt to comeback. After falling behind, he couldn't do enough in fights to bring his team the victory. Game 2 and 3 went similarly, with Keane falling behind early and being extremely lackluster as a result. With his team at a huge disadvantage, he struggled again and could not output nearly enough damage to bring his team back into things. Although not the sole reason for his team's defeat, his poor performance contributed to Dignitas' 0-3 loss in the series.
Ties for team high in kills
September 5, 2017
Keane finished Saturday's sweep to CLG with a 7/10/11 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Keane used Taliyah in Game 1 to finish with a 3/3/5 KDA. He had 100 percent kill participation finishing second on the team in kills and assists in Game 1. In Game 2, Keane used Corki and earned a 2/3/1 KDA. He was again involved in 100 percent of the kills, leading DIG with two kills. Keane returned to Taliyah in Game 3, finishing with a 2/4/5 KDA. He was involved in seven of 11 kills, finishing tied with Shrimp for the second-highest kill total and having the second-most assists as CLG closed out the series.
Taliyah carry closes out series victory
August 7, 2017
Keane earned a 14/4/20 KDA in Team Dignitas series victory against Team Liquid on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Keane had a Player of the Game performance on Taliyah to start the series. He needed help to control his lane, but was great in teamfights, stopping people's escape with clutch Seismic Shoves. Besides that, he was nailing plenty of Threaded Volleys to lead DIG in damage dealt to champions. In Game 2, Keane's Cassiopeia wasn't as impactful. Teamfights were rough for Keane as he often was singled out and taken down before getting much more than a assist. In Game 3, Keane returned to Taliyah and had another dominant performance on his way to earning a 8/0/8 KDA. Keane again led in damage dealt to champions and was two kills or assists shy of 100 percent kill participation.
Solid Syndra performance in series victory
July 30, 2017
Keane earned a 7/8/19 KDA in Team Dignitas' 2-1 series victory against Immortals on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Keane started off ther series with a solid 1/0/10 KDA performance on Syndra. He fell behind in CS during the laning phase, but started to make up for it with lots of assists in the mid game teamfights. DIG took control 32 minutes in after scoring an ace then kept its foot on the gas until it picked up a Game 1 victory. In Game 2 Keane tried to go a little off meta, picking the rarely seen Karthus. While Karthus scales well into the late game, Keane never really got a chance as he quickly fell behind during the laning phase. DIG could barely scratch IMT's frontline late and Keane often died in teamfights without picking up a kill or assist. Requiem was little more than a tickle in the late game as Keane finished with a lowly 2/5/1 KDA. Keane returned to Syndra in Game 3 and put together a 4/3/8 KDA performance. The laning phase was quiet but once Keane joined up for teamfights in the mid game he supplied plenty of damage. Keane secured a clutch kill late that secured a Baron and broke open Game 3 for Dignitas. There was little IMT could do to stop DIG from sieging through its base and winning the series.
Falls off after first game
July 25, 2017
Keane's KDA was 8/6/11 overall by the end of Dignitas' 1-2 loss to Cloud9 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Keane had a fantastic Game 1 on Jayce, taking full advantage of the recent Lethality buffs. His Shock Blast damage was disgusting, and he had no trouble demolishing towers alongside a Tristana and Nunu en route to a 5/1/5 KDA. Unfortunately, the rest of his series wasn't so solid. His Game 2 on Taliyah wasn't terrible, as he had the fewest deaths on his team and participated in four of their five kills, but he couldn't make nearly enough of an impact to change anything. In Game 3, Keane's Cassiopeia simply suffered. He kept up in CS, but couldn't accomplish much else with Cloud9's heavy backline pressure in his face.
Goes off in mid lane
July 23, 2017
Keane finished Dignitas' big win over TSM on Saturday with a 8/3/11 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Keane was on two strong champions in Cassiopeia and Taliyah in this series. He shot out the gate with a lead in the mid lane with Cass in the first game, which is always a feat when playing against a player like Bjergsen. As the game progressed, he roamed all over the map to pick up kills in just about every lane while also locking down Bjergsen with clean stuns here and there in the big win. He switched over to Taliyah in Game 2, and was just as good. He once again led his lane the whole time. His uses of Weaver's Wall were a thing of beauty in this one. He used the max range on it to traverse a large chunk of the map for a nice double as part of first blood. Keane seems to be hitting his stride at the perfect time, with Dignitas certainly pushing for a higher playoff spot.

Near deathless in victory over CLG
July 18, 2017
Keane earned a 4/1/17 KDA in his team's victory over CLG on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Starting off the series on Syndra, Keane had a dominant performance that net his team a convincing victory. Finding an early lead, he had no problem in lane despite being focused. Turning around ganks and blowing up his enemies swiftly with his ultimate, he gained an early lead CLG couldn't come back from. In late game fights, he helped eliminate key members of the enemy team, resulting in a convincing Game 1 victory. Game 2 went even better as he found himself on Orianna. Despite not finding a huge early lead, he once again showed up in teamfights, taking a more supportive role while Altec's Kalista dominated. Earning a 1/1/8 KDA, his modest performance was enough to claim victory once again, closing the series out 2-0.

Performed well on meta champions in victory
July 17, 2017
Keane earned a 9/4/16 KDA in Team Dignitas' 2-1 series victory against Phoenix1 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Keane had a strong 4/0/7 KDA performance in Game 1 on Syndra as he lead Dignitas in damage dealt to champions. He was able to follow up on the crowd control that his teammates provided to blow up the damage carries as DIG had a smashing 13 kills to four victory. In Game 2, Keane was put on Viktor, but his Gravity Field wasn't enough to turn around P1's engages. Dignitas's quickly lost control of Game 2 as a 21-minute Baron power play sieged through its base. Keane's Taliyah in Game 3 had a much better performance as he damage carried Dig to victory. He got pretty of good protection to dole out Threaded Volleys to P1 in teamfights. He scored a double kill in DIG's final push to finish with a solid 4/2/8 KDA.
Cork pick falls short in Game 3 loss
June 26, 2017
Keane earned a 6/5/5 KDA in Team Dignitas' 2-1 series loss to Cloud9 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Keane started off the series with a 4/0/3 KDA performance on Viktor in Game 1. An early roam lead to a skirmish where he secured a double kill that included first blood. He continued to deal out the damage and teamfight well as Dig took an early lead to the series. In Game 2 Keane couldn't repeat his performance. The laning phase was close, but he couldn't keep up with Jensen's roams and fell behind in the second half. Dig struggled to coordinate its teamfights as C9 dominated and evened up the series. In the deciding Game 3 Keane tried to counter Syndra with Corki but it didn't work out. He got poked out during the laning phase as he was forced to CS under turret. Keane wasn't able to make any huge plays with Corki's package, but still led Dig in damage dealt to champions as he finished with a measly 1/2/1 KDA.
