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.
Passable against TSM
June 11, 2017
Keane ended with a 12/7/11 KDA as Dignitas took down TSM 2-1 Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Keane certainly wasn't the primary carry for Dignitas in this series, but he was serviceable in the win. He started out on Cassiopeia, and gave up a death attempting to stop the enemy support from clearing a ward. From there, he was forced to play catch up against Bjergsen's Taliyah, who was able to out-roam him as a result. However, he redeemed himself with a triple kill to end the game for DIG. He stuck with Cassiopeia in Game 2, and was once against out-roamed by Bjergsen's Taliyah. Unfortunately, he didn't have as strong of a team to keep him in the game, and while he put out great damage and went up almost 70 CS by the end of the game, DIG was forced to a Game 3. Here, he went with the recently changed Malzahar, and this time repeatedly beat Bjergsen to the punch in early-game roams. He did get caught out a couple of times in the late-game, but it wasn't enough to sully his team's victory.
Superb series
June 6, 2017
Keane went 9/3/12 in Dignitas' 2-1 victory over Team EnVyUs Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Keane played Orianna in Game 1, and demonstrated his prowess on the champion. He landed a fantastic two-man Shockwave mid lane to set up the first two kills for his team, and didn't look back from there. He went on to grow a CS advantage over Pirean's Syndra, and put out tons of damage in fights to go 2/0/7 in the win. Keane stuck with Orianna in Game 2, and while he still played well, he didn't get enough of a CS advantage to make up for Pirean's roaming on Taliyah. For the deciding Game 3, Keane made the switch to Karma. He fell behind in lane to Pirean's Cassiopeia, but made plays in fights in the meantime, ending 6/1/5 with the most kills in the game as DIG took the series.
Consistent performance in series victory
June 5, 2017
Keane earned a series KDA of 7/6/8 in DIG's 2-0 series win over FLY.
ANALYSIS
Although Keane didn't have an extremely impressive performance against FLY, he was still able to hold his own for much of the series, allowing the rest of his team to find room to earn their own advantages. After falling behind in lane in Game 1, he was able to move with his team to deal large amounts of damage in teamfights and hit important stuns that allowed his team to claim skirmish victories. Though he continued to die throughout teamfights, he was able to deal enough damage before dying that his team was able to close things out impressively, resulting in a Game 1 victory. In Game 2, Keane had another rough time in lane, being focused heavily and receiving little assistance of his own. As a result, he quickly found himself racking up several kills while FLY was able to build up a decent lead for themselves. Thankfully, his team was able to regroup quickly and make things happen in teamfights and skirmishes. As a result of DIG's superior teamplay, Keane was able to bring things back with his team and secure the Game 2 victory after a back and forth game. With the victory, Dignitas claimed the series 2-0.
Can't keep up with Ryu
April 9, 2017
Keane ended Dignitas' defeat at the hands of Phoenix1 with an overall 4/8/10 KDA.
ANALYSIS
While his counterpart was having a field day all series long, Keane didn't manage to accomplish much of anything in this series. He did keep up in farm early on in Game 1 on Cassiopeia against Ryu's Syndra, but Ryu roamed far more quickly and far more often, while Keane utterly failed to make a play for his team. His late-game teamfighting was also lacking, as he struggled to find a position to do damage and not get killed in the process. After the loss, Keane switched to Orianna against Ryu's LeBlanc. Once again, Keane was out-pressured and out-roamed, and this time had a bigger problem in getting consistently caught out of position, going 0/3/1 in the first 30 minutes of the game, which ended in favor of P1 a few minutes later. Keane made the switch to Azir against Ryu's Orianna for Game 3, and continued to position too far forward and get killed. He was never able to put out sufficient damage or make a play with his ultimate as DIG lost 0-3 to P1.
Just good enough in decent day for win
March 28, 2017
Keane had a good showing by scoring a 10/8/23 KDA in win against IMT on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
If it weren't due to superior play by his teammates around the map, Keane could've perhaps thrown Game 1 for DIG. His overzealous play started early as he died on an extremely aggressive 1-vs-1 turret dive into Pobelter's Taliyah. Although he was unable to cement a substantial kill total while playing Cassiopeia (3), he still was able to use the choice's strengths as he managed to lead his team in damage dealt to champions. In Game 2, he brought out perhaps the most potent team fighting tool in all of mid lane by selecting Orianna. He did not disappoint as he still managed to net a 7/5/15 KDA vs. a Pobelter who brought his A-game on Vladimir.
Not enough kill pressure
March 26, 2017
Keane underperforms with 4/4/17 KDA in two game series loss to C9 on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Like his teammates, he was solid early game in both matches of the series. However, considering he played Azir and then Zed he simply needed to secure more kills. Part of it was Jensen playing godly, but overall he was often a tad late on pulling the trigger to get kills and thus C9 did not have to worry about a fed mid laner in late game.
