Struggles during one-sided loss
October 16, 2017
Contractz finished Sunday's loss to EDG with a 2/5/2 KDA as Graves.
ANALYSIS
Contractz struggled to get anything going for C9 as they were dominated from an early stage. He was involved in four of six C9 kills, finishing with the second highest kill total on the team. With this blemish out of the way against EDG, C9 remain favorites to qualify as the group's second seed if they can beat ahq or SKT.
Unable to control the jungle
October 15, 2017
Contractz went 1/3/2 in Cloud9's defeat at the hands of SKT on Sunday at the 2017 World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Contractz took Ezreal in this game and didn't manage to make much of an impact whatsoever. This was despite Blank not exactly playing his best game here on Sunday. Contractz biggest claim to fame in this game was picking up a Baron for Cloud9 in the mid game, but Cloud9 had no clue what to do with the advantage and still ended up getting rocked by the game's end.
Team high death total
October 5, 2017
Contractz ended C9's Day 1 loss to SKT with a 2/5/2 KDA as Rek'sai.
ANALYSIS
Contractz was involved in four of five kills for C9, but gave away a game high five deaths in the loss. Contractz tied for the team high in kills and tied for the second highest assist total with three other teammates. Contractz tried to pressure Faker, but the SKT turned around an early gank in the mid lane which sank C9's chances of success.
Shines in win
September 28, 2017
Contractz tallied a 6/5/23 KDA in Cloud9's 3-0 sweep of Lyon Gaming on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Contractz took this opportunity against Lyon to show everyone that he's going to be able to hang with the best of them here at Worlds. While his play in the group stage was fine, he was on another level in this series. Not only was pushing his team ahead with dominating play in the jungle, but he managed to completely marginalize Oddie in the process. He always knew just when to gank and went jump into teamfights to turn the tides. While he took five deaths in the second game, that was a game where Cloud9 battled back from an early deficit to walk away with a victory after 61 long minutes. If Cloud9 can get more of this from Contractz in the main group stage, the North Americans have got a chance to make some noise.
Dominates on Ezreal to secure victory
September 26, 2017
Contractz earned an impressive 5/1/13 KDA on Ezreal during his team's victory over Dire Wolves on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Picking Ezreal for the first time at Worlds, Contractz was able to show his abilities on the champion despite his team falling behind early. As his bottom lane was heavily focused and gave up kills, he made a mistake trying desperately to pick up a kill that resulted in his death. After this death, he stepped things up, expertly kiting and dealing large amounts of damage to swing fights in his team's favor. As the lane phase ended, he was crucial to winning fights for Cloud9, bringing the team back despite an early deficit. Without slowing down, he was able to secure two dragons and a Baron for Cloud9, closing out the game in 25-minutes to secure Cloud9's perfect 4-0 score in the Play-In stage.
Heavily involved in Sunday win
September 25, 2017
Contractz ended C9's win over Team oNe with a 2/0/11 KDA as Sejuani.
ANALYSIS
Contractz finished the game involved in 13 of C9's 14 kills, leading the team in both assists and kill participation. It was a pretty straightforward game for C9, as they were able to topple the Nexus in only 22 minutes. Contractz was heavily involved in his team's success on Sunday, utilizing Sejuani's multiple forms of crowd-control to set up kills throughout the game.
Solo carries Cloud9
September 24, 2017
Contractz went 6/0/4 as Cloud9 took down Dire Wolves Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Contractz went with Nidalee for this game and demonstrated the immense early power of the pick. He started off by grabbing first blood in the mid lane and then continued to roam between mid and top, picking up kill after kill and snowballing the top half of the map ahead. By the end of the game, Contractz was 6/0/4, earning over half of C9's 11 kills and missing out on only one participation. Contractz was, by far, the biggest factor in C9's victory.
Mediocre early games
September 12, 2017
Contractz ended Cloud9's 3-1 win over CLG Sunday with an overall KDA of 10/11/34.
ANALYSIS
Up against the rookie of OmarGod, whose regular season play was uninspiring, Contractz was expected to have the advantage. However, this wasn't the case at all, at least in the early stages of the game. Contractz was involved in zero first bloods all series long, compared to the three of OmarGod. In Game 1, Contractz was even on the receiving end of one of these first bloods, as his overaggressive invade on Nidalee cost him. Cloud9 still won Game 1 handily, but Contractz was all three of his team's deaths in the game. Contractz switched over to the tanks of Jarvan IV and Gragas for Games 2 and 3, and while his teamfighting was solid, his early games remained lackluster. He cleaned up in Game 4 with a surprise carry build on Rek'Sai, ending the series on a high note as C9 qualified for Worlds.
Solid early play nets victories
August 7, 2017
Contractz went an overall 4/4/19 in Cloud9's Saturday sweep of NV.
ANALYSIS
Playing Rek'Sai for Game 1, Contractz found early success ganking his already-winning bottom lane. A subsequent hiccup top gave Contractz his first death, but he'd earn only one more in the remainder of the game as C9 breezed to victory. In Game 2, Contractz's Zac also found some early ganks, but this time it was his engages later in the game that made the real difference, as the close game drew on, but still ended in a win.
Shines in sweep
July 31, 2017
Contractz went 10/2/17 as Cloud9 triumphed 2-0 over FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Contractz played a pair of fantastic games on Sunday, starting with his Game 1 on Maokai. He had a bit of an early hiccup with a low-damage gank attempt on top lane that got turned around, but the death he gave up here was his only one all game. From there, he was all over the map setting up kills, and he proved to be an unkillable frontliner as C9 steamrolled to victory. In Game 2, Contractz went with Rek'Sai. He participated in Cloud9's first seven kills, with his streak only ending because he'd gotten Jensen far enough ahead for him to find solo kills. With an enormous gold lead, Contractz quickly became a combination frontliner and assassin as Cloud9 found a second easy win.
Excels off of Kayn
July 25, 2017
Contractz posted a 7/6/26 scoreline by the end of Cloud9's 2-1 win over Dignitas on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Contractz went with another Kayn pick for Game 1, and it failed to pan out. He failed to contribute just about anything to the game's first skirmish, leading to a 1-for-3 trade and snowball win for DIG. He more than made up for it on Zac in Game 2, however. He maintained 100 percent kill participation for most of the game, with early-game ganks and late-game engages to give his team a win and himself a fantastic 2/1/17. Game 3 was arguably once again decided on an early skirmish, and this time Contractz participated fully as Elise, leading to an easy win for Cloud9.
First Kayn pick in North America, delivers series wins
July 22, 2017
Contractz scored a 13/4/23 KDA in Cloud9's 2-1 series victory against Phoenix1 on Friday.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Contractz got to show off the new champion Kayn and went with the Darkin form. Contractz secured first blood in under four minutes in top lane before bringing death to the rest of P1's lanes. All of the objectives were secured by Contractz on his way to finishing with a 4/0/7 KDA. In Game 2 Contractz continued to make good early game plays on Lee Sin. However, C9 couldn't keep up its rotations late and started to get dominated in teamfights by P1's better scaling team composition. In Game 3 Contractz returned to Kayn's Darkin form and delivered another solid outing as he finished with a 6/1/12 KDA. He wasn't able to secure first blood, but still put together a strong early game filled with successful ganks and neutral objectives. C9's first Baron attempt was a failure as P1 stole it, but it wasn't enough to turn around the momentum. Contractz didn't lose out on the second Baron and used the power play to put an end to the series.
Strong showing in series defeat
July 19, 2017
Contractz earned a series KDA of 10/11/32 in C9's series defeat Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Although his team was ultimately defeated, Contractz had a strong showing in his team's series defeat. Participating in over 80 percent of his team's kills, he had a huge impact, although it wasn't quite enough to get things done. His strong Gragas performance in Game 1 participated in all but one of his team's kills, bringing C9 a convincing victory. The remaining two games saw Contractz on Rek'Sai, where he was able to get things done but not create a large enough lead for his lanes to dominate. Throughout the defeat, he showed massive promise, but unfortunately for him, promise is not enough to claim victory.
Closed out group stage with solid Elise performance
July 8, 2017
Contractz posted a 3/1/7 KDA in Cloud9's victory against Fnatic on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Contractz kept the early game early, but started to pull away after the first teamfight over Dragon. He easily secured the buff and kill participation on first blood. C9 rotated into top lane early, allowing Contractz an opening to take Rift Herald. He wasn't able to get much done when he summoned the Herald, but he didn't need to as C9 was already leading in turrets knocked down. The second half of the game C9 ran away with its gold lead and closed it out after a 4-for-2 teamfight victory where Contractz took his only death.
The Big Bad Babysitter
July 7, 2017
Contractz had a good game versus FNC by going 2/2/14 during Tuesday's win.
ANALYSIS
When playing FNC Thursday, Contractz made it abundantly clear he was prioritizing getting Jensen ahead. Then once Jensen had a solid lead, he returned again and again to make sure mid lane completely snowballed to C9's favor. He did a great job using the playmaking abilities of Gragas to lock down Caps's Orianna and seemingly never missed a body slam on a gank. As the game progressed, he smartly used his ult to pick off opponents, or use it to buy time if the fight was not going his team's way.
