Contract acquired by Team Liquid
November 18, 2017
Cody Sun has been acquired by Team Liquid, as reported by ESPN's Jacob Wolf.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun is one of four former Immortals players that had their contracts acquired by Team Liquid. With Immortals being denied partnership in the newly franchised NA LCS, the players have been in limbo for some time. Cody Sun, in addition to Xmithie, AnDa, and Pobelter, were all acquired by Team Liquid. It's not currently known whether Cody Sun will start, however. With Piglet's contract set to expire this upcoming week, a window of opportunity is certainly there for the ADC to step into the newly available spot.
Strong individual performance not enough
October 13, 2017
Cody Sun put together an impressive 4/1/2 KDA in Immortals' loss to Fnatic on Wednesday at the 2017 World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun did an excellent job laning against Rekkles and even managed to score a stronger KDA by match's end. However, the stats are a bit misleading, as half of the IMT ADC's kills came during the game's final play in which FNC went all in to break the Nexus. He did a great job capitalizing on Tristana's tower pushing ability as he was able to take the game's first tower, and continue the push by taking four of the six towers IMT demolished. He led the game in damage dealt to champions; however, it was not enough to solo carry to victory. The real thorn in his side was the lack of a reliable front line, coupled with the fact that the team's other carry in mid lane underperformed.
Unable to carry for IMT
October 12, 2017
Cody Sun ended Thursday's loss to GAM with a 3/2/0 KDA as Kog'Maw.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun tried, but was unable to carry Immortals past the Gigabyte Marines on Thursday. He was involved in three of seven kills, leading IMT with three kills. In an AD-carry-centric meta, Cody Sun has been unable to match carry performances of the top-level marksmen in the tournament.
Fewer kills than his support
October 5, 2017
Cody Sun ended Immortals' Thursday loss to LZ with a 1/2/5 KDA as Varus.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun was involved in six of Immortals ten kills in the game, playing well early before falling off. He struggled to pick up kills, managing only one and finishing with one less kill than his support. He did have the second highest assist total in the game, using Chains of Corruption to lock down LZ members and set up kills in the early game.
Can't keep up outside of lane
September 3, 2017
14/12/18 was Cody Sun's overall KDA in IMT's 1-3 loss to TSM on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
As expected, Cody Sun was completely overshadowed by Doublelift in this series. His laning phases went fine for the most part, but he simply couldn't compare when it came to teamfights. It seemed Cody Sun was consistently either close enough to be caught out by TSM and lose the teamfight for IMT, or too far to be of any use at all. Unable to walk the same knife's edge as his counterpart, Cody Sun simply didn't have sufficient impact, and IMT suffered in late-game fights.
Makes his way to first LCS finals
August 27, 2017
Cody Sun earned a series KDA of 16/6/23 in IMT's 3-0 sweep over IMT.
ANALYSIS
Playing Kog'Maw in all three games against CLG, Cody Sun was able to successfully display his skill on the champion. He started off with a decent performance, though he struggled for much of the early game. Being focused heavily, he was relegated to only dealing damage in fights when his Bio-Arcane Barrage was off cooldown. As a result, he didn't deal massive amounts of damage, though he dealt enough to secure a Game 1 victory. Game 2 went much better with Cody Sun finding an early lead and never slowing down, picking up kills left and right at every stage of the game, he snowballed his team ahead early and swiftly decimate the enemy team. Going untouched throughout the majority of the game, he easily dominated the enemy team, dominating back-to-back teamfights to secure a convincing victory. Game 3 went even better, picking up an early lead once again and never slowing. Not taking any time to scale, he moved with his team swiftly to pick up a huge lead. In doing so, IMT won back-to-back skirmishes again, closing out the game in under 30 minutes and securing the series sweep in the process.
Damage carries on Kog'Maw to complete sweep
August 5, 2017
Cody Sun finished with an 11/1/15 KDA in Immortals' sweep of Team EnVyUs on Friday.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Cody Sun's Tristana used Rocket Jump to easily move around fights, doling out damage and racking up assists. The laning phase was pretty easy for Cody Sun after IMT won a 5-vs-5 teamfight 4-for-1 three minutes. IMT quickly ran away with its gold lead after, pushing the tempo to not give EnVy a chance to come back. Game 2 wasn't as easy for Cody Sun as his Kog'Maw had little pressure in the laning phase. However once he got to teamfights, Cody Sun had plenty of protection and damage carried teamfights. Cody Sun finished with the most damage dealt to champions and a 7/1/5 KDA as IMT secured its first round bye.
Struggled to secure kills on Jhin throughout series loss
July 30, 2017
Cody Sun finished with a 3/3/14 KDA in Immortals' series loss to Team Dignitas on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun kept the laning phase of Game 1 close on Jhin as slowly built a CS lead. He did his best to stay in the backline during fights and could barely make a dent in the front as he finished with a lowly 0/1/3 KDA. In Game 2 Cody Sun had a quiet start on Tristana, but started to pop off in teamfights late. Once Cody Sun reached his late game build, the rest of IMT supplied plenty of good engages for him to follow up on. Game 2 was Cody Sun's best performance of the series as he finished with a 3/0/6 KDA. In Game 3 Cody returned to Jhin and again finished without a kill. IMT struggled to coordinate acceptable engages as it got picked apart in teamfights and lost objectives throughout the deciding Game 3.
Consistent performance on Tristana throughout sweep
July 29, 2017
Cody Sun finished with a 4/4/13 KDA in Immortals' series sweep of Team Liquid on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun was on Tristana throughout the entire series. He didn't have a great start to Game 1 as he lost trades in lane and fell behind in gold. The mid game didn't get much better for him, but once he reached his late game build he started making better contributions to teamfights. Cody Sun's early Game 2 didn't go any better as he died to an early gank from GoldenGlue's Taliyah. He began to make up for his early death in the mid game as he picked up plenty of assists in skirmishes. IMT started to take control late and didn't take its foot off the gas until it completed the series sweep. Cody Sun finished Game 2 with a solid 2/1/6 KDA.
Jhin carries in Game 1 win
July 3, 2017
Cody Sun finished with a 8/3/16 KDA in Immortals series loss to Phoenix1 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun had a superb 6/0/9 KDA performance on Jhin in Game 1. He made the most of his gank help as ran away with a gold and experience lead. A lot of Cody Sun's Deadly Flourishes were on point as well as his Curtain Call shots. Cody Sun's Game 2 performance on Jhin wasn't as good but all of IMT struggled as P1 evened up the series. Teamfights almost all went in favor of P1 as IMT only managed to secure a measly three kills. In Game 3 Cody Sun switched to Ashe and had a 1/1/5 performance. IMT fought back in the mid game, but it wasn't enough to make up for its gold deficit.
Damage carry falls short in series loss
July 2, 2017
Cody Sun finished with a 10/6/9 KDA in Immortals 2-0 series loss to Team SoloMid on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun had a decent 3/3/5 KDA performance on Kalista in Game 1. He rotated well early to pick up some assists, but struggled to find safety from Bjergsen's Syndra in the rest of the teamfights. In TSM's final push, he managed to pick up some kills, but it wasn't enough to stop it from knocking down IMT's Nexus. In Game 2, Cody Sun carried IMT in damage dealt on Kog'Maw, but couldn't carry the late game teamfights. Cody Sun went on an early five kill spree, but was trading deaths for kills as IMT tried to defend its base.
Strong Jhin performance in Game 1 of sweep
June 24, 2017
Cody Sun finished with a 9/1/15 KDA in Immortals series sweep of Counter Logic Gaming on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun was excellent in Game 1 on Jhin as he earned a 5/0/9 KDA and lead in damage dealt to champions. He had plenty of gank help early and secured an assist on first blood and first turret gold. He rotated well with his teammates as IMT ran up a lead in gold and objectives. After Immortals got Baron late, it easily pushed for a series lead. In Game 2 Cody Sun picked Kalista and struggled early in lane. However, he made an early rotation into top lane that allowed IMT to push for first turret gold. IMT got picked apart throughout the first half but managed to keep a gold lead because its defense successfully protected objectives. The late game teamfights started to go in IMT's flanks took down CLG's damage dealers. The series was sealed up after IMT scored an ace while on a Baron power play.
Superb series from IMT marksman
June 12, 2017
Cody Sun ended Immortals' 2-1 win over FlyQuest with a KDA of 17/9/20 Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun went with Caitlyn for Game 1, and shined on the pick. He picked up a pair of early kills as well as an assist, and while he went down a few times in the mid game, this was entirely understandable given how fed the enemy's assassins were. Cody Sun even secured a quadra kill as IMT finished the game to go 8/3/9. Moving to Xayah in Game 2, Cody Sun continued to perform despite the eventual loss. He not only caught out and solo killed his counterpart in the top lane, but also went up over 80 CS despite losing. His Game 3 on Kog'Maw started off rough with a CS deficit and a pair of early deaths, but as he scaled into a late-game monster, he went deathless for the remainder of the game while accruing a game-high 10 kills in the win.
Damage carried Game 1 of sweep
June 5, 2017
Cody Sun finished with a 8/4/14 KDA in Immortals series sweep of Team SoloMid on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Cody Sun saw little action early in Game 1 on Varus and the bottom lane stayed even. He played safe and made solid contributions to teamfights as he finished with most damage dealt to champions while only dying once. In Game 2, Cody Sun stuck with Varus and had a better laning phase where he picked up first blood thanks to a gank. It wasn't smooth sailing afterwards as TSM sent help into the bottom lane and Cody Sun got killed throughout the mid game. He kept his cool and was able to contribute again in the late game fights as Immortals closed out the sweep.
Ramps up in series victory over P1
June 4, 2017
Cody Sun finishes IMT's 2-1 victory over P1 with a series KDA of 9/5/19.
ANALYSIS
Picking Caitlyn in Game 1 of the series, Cody Sun struggled to get things going. After falling behind in lane, he found himself heavily focused in teamfights, making it extremely difficult for him to get off any damage. Though he ultimately improved his positioning throughout the game, it came too late, allowing Phoenix 1 to take back-to-back teamfights and close out the game without allowing Cody Sun to find a single kill. He bounced back from the defeat with ease, picking Varus in Game 2 and absolutely dominating. From the very start he was able to find a lead for himself, landing impressive skillshots and refusing to back down. Although he was focused, he died only a single time while participating in 15 out of his team's 20 kills. With his strong showing, he was able to help his team pick up a 42-minute victory. With the series brought to a final Game 3, Cody Sun opted for Caitlyn again and found redemption. Punishing Arrow's Kog'maw in lane, he was able to find an early lead and roll with it. As the rest of Immortals also found their respective leads, he was able to move with them to contribute in teamfights and secure a further lead for the team. Once ahead, there was no stopping him, kiting teamfights perfectly and resulting in back-to-back victories that allowed IMT to take Game 3. With the 30-minute victory, IMT claimed the series victory 2-1.
