100 Thieves
Cleaned up play in tiebreaker
March 19, 2018
aphromoo finished with a combined KDA of 1/5/17 in 100 Thieves pair of victories against Echo Fox on Sunday.
aphomoo had solid performances on Braum in both of the games against Echo Fox. In the regular season game, he had a poor laning phase as an early all in cost him his life but gave Cody Sun a kill. The early death set him back in experience but he had plenty of time to recover from that as Game 1 went well past full build for everyone. 100 Thieves finally managed to push to victory on the back of its fourth Baron power play. In the tiebreaker game, aphromoo cleaned up his play during the laning phase, avoiding the early deaths which led to being a better tank throughout the mid game. 100 Thieves as a group really improved its play in Game 2 as it strung together teamfight victories in the mid game that built an insurmountable gold lead. This time it only took one Baron power play for 100 Thieves to push down the Nexus and secure the top seed in the playoffs.
Cow bell not enough to cure Team Liquid fever
March 4, 2018
aphromoo's Alistar finished with a 0/2/1 KDA in 100 Thieves loss to Team Liquid on Saturday.
aphromoo got to draft yet another good playmaking support in Alistar but he didn't have as much success as he did last week. An early invade put aphromoo and Cody Sun at a disadvantage from level 1. When aphromoo tried to make his first all-in engage, it drew Impact's Shen to the bottom lane to turn it into a 0-for-1 loss. 100 Thieves were on defense for the rest of the game and weren't able to stop the splitpush pressure Team Liquid was supplying. Aphromoo never found a good engage and any would be doomed to fail because of 100 Thieves being very far behind in levels and gold. The final stand ended with 100 Thieves being aced and watching its Nexus go down from the respawn screen.
Takes a trip to hook city
February 26, 2018
aphromoo ended 0/2/7 as 100 Thieves took down FlyQuest on Sunday.
aphromoo locked in Blitzcrank on Sunday as the last pick of the game, in response to the incredibly frail lineup drafted by FlyQuest. The pick showed results immediately, helping 100 Thieves secure first blood at the three-minute mark. From there, aphromoo's hooks continued to be on point all game, in particular finding FlyQuest ADC WildTurtle on several occasions. aphromoo's picks won fights for 100 Thieves before they even started, and his final hook onto WildTurtle ended the game at 37 minutes.
Mistakes mar slick Bard performance
February 19, 2018
aphromoo went 4/6/8 in 100 Thieves' victory over CLG on Sunday.
aphromoo pulled out his pocket Bard for this game, and it was easy to see why. Throughout the game, aphromoo consistently demonstrated his mastery of the champion, particularly of the Tempered Fate ultimate. At various times, he used the ability to counter Taric's Cosmic Radiance, to assist in tower dives, to chase down fleeing enemies, and to assist in engagements. Unfortunately, aphromoo's positioning and map awareness were not as great as his skill usage, as he was caught out time and again to end with a game-high six deaths in an otherwise impressive showing.
Muddled performance in loss
February 18, 2018
aphromoo put up a 0/3/4 KDA during 100 Thieves' loss to Echo Fox on Saturday.
aphromoo took Morgana into this game and never managed to really perform well enough with the champion. There wasn't much action for neither bot lane players early on, and once fights broke out, aphromoo could do little more than simply try and run away from fights. He got away a few times but ended up dying far too often to be of help to 100 Thieves as Echo Fox pushed their way to victory.
Little impact during loss
February 12, 2018
aphromoo finished 100 Thieves' loss against the Golden Guardians on Sunday with a 0/1/4 KDA.
With his lane partner getting picked off in the first two minutes of the game, aphromoo's job was already that much tougher. His Taric simply didn't have the tools needed to give his team a leg up in the game. While 100 Thieves started off the season hot, they have been tumbling ever since. This loss to the previously winless Guardians is certainly rock bottom for this team.
Dominates on Braum to secure victory over CG
February 5, 2018
aphromoo earned a 0/1/7 KDA on Braum to find his team a victory against CG on Saturday.
In one of the most impressive comebacks of the season, aphromoo was critical to his team's success. Despite falling behind immensely during the early game, he held his grown, biding time for his team to find an opportunity to come back into the game. With impressive vision control, he allowed his team to gain control of the map despite being vastly behind in gold. With the vision control, his team was able to take objective control, and being to mount a comeback. With the newfound buffs, he worked with the rest of his team to find a teamfight victory, picking off key targets of the enemy team to secure a victory and close out the game in 48 minutes.
Can't keep team alive in loss
January 28, 2018
aphromoo went just 1/3/3 on Shen during 100 Thieves' loss against Cloud9 on Sunday.
aphromoo tried his best to get his team a win in this game, but Cloud9 brought the pain and not even he could save the team. He almost managed to turn it around in the mid-game when he came up with a perfect Stand United to save his teammates, but that can only take you so far and Cloud9 simply bowled over 100 Thieves to get the win.
Signs with 100 Thieves
November 30, 2017
aphromoo is set to sign with 100 Thieves, Jacob Wolf of ESPN reports.
After leaving his longtime team of Counter Logic Gaming on November 20 when his contract expired, many wondered what was next for the All-Star support. It's now been reported by ESPN that aphromoo will join one of the newest entrants into the NA LCS, 100 Thieves. It was also reported that aphromoo received an offer from CLG prior to his departure, but he wanted to explore his options. He joins Ssumday, Meteos, and Ryu, who were all signed by the team last week. The team just needs to lock down an AD carry and it will be all set for the 2018 season.
Free Agent
Leaves Counter Logic Gaming
November 26, 2017
Counter Logic Gaming announced Sunday that their long-time captain and shot-caller, aphromoo, had decided to move on to other opportunities.
The era of faith may be coming to a close, as Counter Logic Gaming announced a roster change that seems to many to be the most devastating move for the franchise since the loss of Chauster in 2012. aphromoo, a player that many would consider the heart and soul of CLG for many years now, is taking his leave of the team. Over the course of his career, aphromoo has led CLG to two NA LCS titles, once with a veteran-heavy roster that simply performed to expectation, and then again with a team made up of freshman players that he managed to whip into shape. The identity of the team that somehow bought out aphromoo remains a mystery, but whoever they are, they've taken a great first step towards building a competitive NA LCS roster.
Exploring free agency
November 20, 2017
According to an ESPN report, aphromoo has not resigned with Counter Logic Gaming despite being offered an extension.
aphromoo had a rough season compared to his normal play. He died more than he usually does over the course of a season, tallying the second most deaths of any support in the NA LCS, but he did come up clutch during the Regional Qualifiers this season. He has been with CLG since 2014.
Remains the heart of CLG
November 20, 2017
Aphromoo ended the 2017 NA LCS Summer Split with a 30/137/418 combined KDA.
Aphromoo helped CLG finish third during the regular season while earning a 3.3 KDA, seventh highest among North American supports. He had the fifth highest kill total in his role while finishing second in assists, one of three players to total over 400 assists during the regular season. His KDA was dragged down due to the fact that he finished with 137 deaths, second-most in the support role and sixth highest among all players. Aphromoo led all players with 110 assists during the playoffs, helping CLG finish in third place. His 75 assists during the regional qualifier also led all players but wasn't enough to see CLG qualify for the 2017 World Championships after falling to Cloud9.
Solid numbers in series loss
September 12, 2017
4/12/30 was aphromoo's overall KDA at the end of CLG's 3-1 loss to Cloud9 Sunday.
aphromoo started off with a quiet 0/1/2 game on Thresh, which was honestly pretty good considering how savagely CLG were beaten. He stuck with Alistar for the rest of the series and was extremely hit or miss. He looked very strong in Game 3, as CLG accumulated a lead and he was free to engage as hard as he wanted, but in the Game 2 and 4 losses, he was highly unimpressive. He botched several engages, including one in Game 4 that might have turned the tide of the game for his team. Overall, this was not what is expected of the veteran support, and as a result, he will not be making another trip to Worlds this year.
Loving the Thresh
September 11, 2017
Aphromoo ended CLG's 3-1 win over FlyQuest with a 2/12/45 KDA in four games as Thresh.
Aphromoo finished Game 1 with a 0/3/4 KDA, involved in only four of 12 kills and finishing with his team's fourth-highest assist total in the loss. In Game 2, Aphromoo ended with a 0/2/18 KDA. He was involved in all but one kill, leading CLG with a massive 18 assists. In Game 3, he finished with a 1/5/8 KDA. He was involved in nine of 12 kills, dying five times, but leading CLG with eight assists. For the final game, Aphromoo earned a 1/2/15 KDA to close out the series. He was involved in 16 of 19 kills leading CLG with 15 assists.
Double digit assists in all three games
September 5, 2017
Aphromoo ended CLG's 3-0 win over DIG with a 3/8/35 combined KDA.
Aphromoo finished Game 1 with a 1/3/12 KDA. He was involved in 13 of 18 kills, leading CLG with 12 assists. In Game 2, Aphromoo earned a 0/1/13 KDA as Rakan.
