Team Liquid
Set to join Team Liquid
November 21, 2017
ANALYSIS
Doublelift's trek across the NA LCS looks to continue with his return to the Team Liquid roster for the upcoming season. He was last with the team during the 2017 Spring Split when he helped them stave off relegation in the promotion tournament. The news comes after reports have surfaced about TSM possibly picking up Zven and Mithy from G2. The move would be just another part of Liquid's massive rebuild in which they have reportedly picked up six players in the last few days.
Provides little help in lopsided loss
October 14, 2017
Doublelift posted a 0/2/0 KDA in TSM's rough loss at the hands of Misfits on Saturday in the tiebreaker of Group D.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift grabbed Kog'Maw in this series to try and bring the noise in this do-or-die game, but that simply didn't pan out one bit. Most of the early action took place on the top side of the map, and once TSM's bot lane finally saw some action, they were taken out in a fight that flipped the game on its head. After losing that fight, and the Baron, there wasn't much that anyone on the team could do to prevent their demise. This was surely a disappointing end to a day that started out with such promise for the North Americans.
Makes the difference in the late game
October 12, 2017
Doublelift ended 4/1/1 in TSM's Friday win over Flash Wolves.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift's famous late-game teamfighting was on full display in TSM's first win of the World Championship, as they fell behind considerably early on and were forced to fight their way back. Thankfully, Doublelift's positioning and decision making were as steadfast as ever, and particularly with a Lulu backing him up, he outscaled the enemy Varus by a great deal. This was crucial to TSM's win, as he was the only member of his team to have a teamfighting advantage over his counterpart in the late game.
Team-high death total
October 9, 2017
Doublelift finished Sunday's loss to Misfits with a 2/5/1 KDA as Kog'Maw.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift had a poor game, along with the rest of TSM, as he was bullied and focused from an early stage. He was involved in only three of TSM's seven kills but did have his team's second highest kill total. Doublelift led the game in deaths as Misfits were able to focus him well in teamfights, not giving him an opportunity to carry.
Untouched in teamfights
September 3, 2017
Doublelift finished off TSM's 3-1 Sunday win over Immortals with a KDA of 26/5/31.
ANALYSIS
Ironically, Doublelift was the one who looked immortal during Sunday's win, as he took only a single death in each win and only two in the sole loss. This was largely due to his fantastic positioning, which not only kept him alive but also dishing out more damage than Immortals could handle. On Xayah for Games 1 and 2, Doublelift knew exactly when to pull the trigger on his ultimate, dodging IMT's considerable engage and maximizing his damage and utility. Meanwhile, his Games 3 and 4 on Tristana demonstrated the full late-game potential of the pick, as he picked the perfect times to go in for resets and completely take over the late fights that won TSM both games.
Kog'Maw extraordinaire
August 29, 2017
Doublelift posted a 25/6/20 KDA in Team SoloMid's 3-1 series victory over Team Dignitas on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Double started off the series playing a game of Tristana, then locked Kog'Maw for the rest of the series. His tried-and-true Tristana in Game 1 put up an amazing 11.0 KDA, and he played as well as spectators have come to expect when he locks in the Yordle Gunner. Doublelift and co. decided to switch it up and stick with Kog'Maw despite Doublelift not playing the champion much. He must have practiced it a lot, or have had the pick and never locked it, because he looked great on it. His positioning and teamfighting were nothing less than superb throughout the series, even in TSM's single loss. Doublelift was a massive key in TSM's series victory, but it's simply what's expected of him anyway.
Shows out against former team
August 7, 2017
Doublelift finished TSM's win against CLG on Sunday with a 12/4/18 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift played two champions that aren't seen too much these days, but played extremely well with both of them. He chose Sivir in Game 1 and played a more supportive game with the champion. He mainly served to assist his team in teamfights, pulling in 11 assists in the game. In Game 2, he busted out Jinx and was a terror. His damage was off the charts, pushing TSM to victory through teamfights. CLG almost managed to snag victory, but Doublelift's 9/3/7 KDA was enough to pick up the win to secure the number one seed for TSM.
Strong showing nets victory over Phoenix 1
August 7, 2017
Doublelift earned a series KDA of 11/3/10 in his team's 2-0 series sweep.
ANALYSIS
Starting things off on Tristana, it was no surprise that Doublelift outperformed the enemy team. Being one of the strongest players in the league coupled with arguably the best champion in his role, he unsurprisingly dominated from the very start. Scaling up easily, he controlled the pace of the game and ultimately dominated teamfights, allowing his team to claim a 26-minute victory. Switching things up and going Kalista in Game 2, he had a much tougher time but he still had an impressive performance. After conceding lane pressure, he scaled up and bounce back in late game teamfights with his team. Positioning expertly, he easily dominated the competition, picking up back-to-back teamfight victories despite being substantially behind. The result was a 34-minute victory, allowing TSM to close out the series 2-0.
Deathless Jhin performance closes out series
July 24, 2017
Doublelift finished with a 14/4/21 KDA in Team SoloMid's series victory against Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Doublelift had a solid 6/1/4 KDA performance on Jhin. He started to pull away in gold late as he raked in kills during the second half teamfights. TSM caught Echo Fox trying to sneak baron and aced them in a teamfight where Doublelift secured a triple kill. The Baron power play pretty much sealed the win in Game 1 for TSM. In Game 2 Doublelift had a quiet 3/3/5 KDA performance on Kalista. While he made good use of Fates Call late to kick EF out of TSM's base, it wasn't enough. TSM's base was in shambles, but instead of defending, Doublelift and crew chased EF around the map while Brandini split pushed to tie up the series. In Game 3 Doublelift earned Player of the Game with a 5/0/12 KDA performance on Jhin. He had plenty of good engages to follow up on as he ran away with a lead in experience and gold. There was little chance of EF breaking far enough through TSM's frontline late to get to Doublelift as he rained in the Deadly Flourishes and Curtain Call shots on his way to leading in damage dealt to champions.
Dies too much to be effective
July 23, 2017
Doublelift ended TSM's loss against Dignitas on Saturday with a KDA of 4/8/10.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift was on Tristana for both games of this series, but found himself dead more often than not in this series. He managed to pick up some kills here and there, but four kills on a high-damage champion like Tristana is a bit of a disappoint, to be sure. He managed to turn around a fight around Baron in Game 1, but that was his only memorable moment. In Game 2, he was down in CS to Altec and just didn't have much of an effect on the ultimate outcome of the game. It was an all-around poor performance from the normally reliable ADC.
North American Sniper
July 9, 2017
Doublelift ended TSM's sweep of UoL in the finals of Rift Rivals with a 17/6/34 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift played Ashe in all three games of this series, and it's easy to see why. Particularly in Game 1, his Enchanted Crystal Arrows were magnets and Unicorns of Love were made of metal, even from across the map and perpendicular to the lane. He also used the champions lane prowess to find CS leads. By Game 3, he'd transitioned to being more of a primary damage carry, largely because Bjergsen was being focused down in teamfights. This led to Doublelift doing the most damage on the team in Game 3, despite his four deaths, as TSM completed the sweep.
Scales into carry
July 5, 2017
Doublelift finished TSM's win over G2 with a 6/0/5 KDA as Tristana.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift scaled well through the laning phase, becoming a major threat late to help lead TSM past G2. He was unkillable, involved in 11 of 18 TSM kills, and led his team with six kills. He was able to help TSM dominate teamfights in the late game, using Rocket Jump resets to pick up kill after kill and close out the win.
Superb on Tristana to close out sweep
July 2, 2017
Doublelift finished with a 6/3/18 KDA in Team SoloMid's 2-0 series sweep of Immortals on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift had a quiet 1/2/9 KDA performance on Jhin in Game 1. He used Jhin's long range advantage against Kalista well throughout the game. His initiation with Deadly Flourishes and Curtain Call Shots mainly resulted in assists, but it was enough for TSM to take teamfights. In Game 2 Doublelift played a bigger role on Tristana and delivered with a 5/1/9 KDA performance. The early game didn't go as well, but he started to make plays in the second half of the game. It started during TSM's Baron power play where he scored a triple kill, and he never looked back from there.
Never carries his team in tough loss
July 1, 2017
Doublelift sleepwalked his way to a 3/5/12 KDA in TSM's 1-2 loss to Cloud9 on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift put a priority on Jhin in this series, first picking the champion in Games 1 and 2. The only problem was that his play with Jhin never warranted such draft priority. While he did have a highlight reel Curtain Call in Game 2, it came in a loss. He never managed to parlay any of his lane leads into solid advantages for his team, which left them coming up short in teamfights. His damage was lacking, and his skillshots often didn't amount to many kills, as he only had a 50 percent kill participation in the game. Doublelift needs to rethink his priority on Jhin or simply play more dominant if TSM hope to keep pushing for a third straight NA LCS title.
Consistent performance on Ashe in series
June 26, 2017
Doublelift finished with a 7/4/14 KDA in Team SoloMid's series sweep of Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Doublelift's laning phase went even in Game 1 as the bottom lane traded minion waves. Once TSM started to rotate around the map for objectives, Doublelift started to pick up kills and assists thanks to engages with Enchant Crystal Arrow. TSM overextended late, but it bounced back with its second Baron power play and finished off Game 1. In Game 2 Doublelift and Biofrost dominated in lane, winning two 2-vs-2 fights and forcing Echo Fox to lane swap. He continued to land solid Enchanted Crystal Arrows and deal out damage to finish with a respectable 4/3/7 KDA in Game 2.
