ANALYSIS
Xmithie started this game off with a nice play to get first blood for this team, making it look as though Liquid would simply run away with a win against the team at the bottom of the standings. But the rest of the game was filled with missed ultimates and squandered opportunities for the Liquid jungler. Guardians, meanwhile, looked like the better team in this game and made sure that no one on Liquid, including Xmithie, could do anything to stop them.

January 21, 2018
Xmithie tallied a 2/2/11 KDA in Team Liquid's win over OpTic Gaming on Sunday.

While his jungle opponent was from from a formidable force, it was still a positive sign for Liquid that Xmithie seems to have not lost a single step from his monster Summer Split last year.

Named starter for Team Liquid
November 23, 2017
Xmithie will be starting for Team Liquid during the 2018 season, the team announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
While many were certain that Xmithie would be the starter for Liquid come the start of the season, the team took all the guesswork out of the equation with this announcement. Xmithie was the best jungle of the Summer Split, evidenced by his inclusion to the All-LCS Team at the end of the season. With that in mind, it's a no-brainer that Liquid would choose Xmithie as their first starter.
