Controlled play nets win over 100 Thieves
September 2, 2018
Pobelter earned a series KDA of 10/5/19 during his team's 3-1 victory over 100 Thieves.
ANALYSIS
Much like the rest of his team, Pobelter had a relatively strong showing during his team's victory over 100 Thieves. In Game 1, Team Liquid was defeated, but Pobelter showed off his ability to play Zilean, participating in all but one of his team's kills without dying a single time. Despite the loss, Pobelter was not shaken, and regrouped with his team to steamroll the next three games of the series. He stormed into the next game on Syndra, quickly taking over lane and then dominating all in his path during skirmishes. The domination only continued to get more severe in the following games as Pobelter and the rest of Liquid moved with a purpose. Picking Ryze in the final two games, Pobelter was able to find a lead and run with it. Despite not having a flashy performance, his play was strong enough to net victories, bringing Team Liquid a 3-1 series victory with ease.
Never had a chance
August 12, 2018
Pobelter ended 0/3/0 as Team Liquid fell to Cloud9 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter's three deaths this game on Orianna were some of the earliest in the game, and they paved the way for Team Liquid's defeat. He was heavily camped early on, and the pairing of Svenskeren's Lee Sin and Goldenglue's Syndra had absolutely no trouble bursting him down, consistently diving him under multiple layers of turrets. Pobelter never got the chance to get going in this game, and his deaths gave Cloud9 their huge lead.
Controlled play results in win
August 5, 2018
Pobelter used Malzahar to earn a 4/1/5 KDA during TL's victory over 100T.
ANALYSIS
After getting ganked early on and giving up a kill just eight minutes into the game, Pobelter stepped things up in order to find victory over 100T. Playing calm and collected for the rest of the game, he was able to ensure that the early death didn't get to him. After scaling up for fights, he began dominating the enemy team with his ultimate and consistent damage, allowing the rest of Team Liquid to bounce back from an early deficit. Providing pressure additionally allowed the rest of his team to take objective control. In the final teamfights of the game, he was able to lock down key members to bring TL convincing fight victories. As a result, TL bounced back in the game to claim a 43-minute win.
Comes out behind on self-proclaimed counter pick
July 22, 2018
Pobelter's scoreline read 2/3/3 as Team Liquid fell to Cloud9 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
After picking Azir into the Orianna of Jensen, reportedly because of extreme confidence in the matchup, Pobelter failed to accomplish much in this game. He fell behind in CS early on, and while he caught up in farm as the game drew on, he didn't do much else. He did have one teamfight where he pulled off a great Emperor's Divide but was outshined by Jensen in every other engagement.
Only one not feeding
July 15, 2018
Pobelter ended with a 0/1/0 KDA as Team Liquid fell to FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
It says something about how Liquid fared in this game that Pobelter's 0/1/0 was by far the best performance on the team. In fact, he was 0/0/0 until the very end of the game, when his team went for a last-ditch fight. Up until then, he spent most of the game farming as Yasuo while his team gave up kills, and maintained a minor CS lead, which is more than can be said for anyone else on Liquid.
Decent performance in loss
July 8, 2018
Pobelter earned a 3/5/1 KDA on Zoe during his team's loss against G2.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter had a decent start to his team's game against G2 but he was ultimately never able to really get things going. After picking up an early kill thanks to a gank from Xmithie, he struggled to get much of anything done at all. As G2 controlled the entire macro game, Pobelter could do little more than farm as his team was denied access to the majority of the map. This ended up causing teamfights to go the way of G2 with ease. Without the ability to roam, Pobelter was pigeonholed into trying to join teamfights after his team was already had a huge disadvantage. Unable to do much of anything, Team Liquid lost back-to-back fights, giving G2 the victory after 26 minutes.
Expertly navigates difficult matchup in victory against Fnatic
July 6, 2018
Pobelter earned a 2/3/9 KDA on Zoe during Team Liquid's convincing victory over Fnatic.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter faced a treacherous road during Team Liquid's match against Fnatic as not only was he facing off against Caps, a mid laner that much of the world would consider stronger, but he also was forced to face down Kassadin as Zoe, a matchup that was already heavily Kassadin favored before Kassadin received his most recent string of buffs. Fortunately, Team Liquid pulled ahead enough in the early game that Caps wasn't able to pressure the matchup very hard without risking instant death at the hands of Xmithie's Nocturne. While that certainly didn't stop Pobelter from dying an uncomfortable number of times considering his team's dominant position, it did ensure that those deaths didn't allow Caps to snowball out of control. By match's end Pobelter had racked up a huge string off assists for himself without sacrificing too much, though he notably was the only member of Team Liquid to end the game with less gold than his opposite number, during a game that was a step away from being a stomp, at that.
Dominant showing on Irelia results in victory
July 6, 2018
Pobelter earned a 2/1/7 KDA on Irelia through Liquid's victory over Splyce.
ANALYSIS
Although he had a much slower start than the rest of his team, Pobelter had an extremely strong performance that resulted in his team's victory over Splyce. During the early game, he did little more than outlane his opponent, as it was unnecessary to do more with the rest of his team dominating the competition. When the mid game came around, Pobelter exploded into fights, quickly eliminating key members of the enemy team, allowing Team Liquid to easily find an ace 17 minutes into the game. From here on out, the rest of the game was simple for Pobelter and the rest of his team. Moving with his squad, he was able to secure objectives and find another critical teamfight victory. After eliminating the enemy team, he assisted TL in closing the game out, claiming a 28-minute victory with only a single death.
Late game struggles in loss
June 18, 2018
Pobelter scored a 1/4/1 KDA on Irelia in Team Liquid's loss to the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter didn't have a great showing on Irelia late but did well in lane despite the tough matchup. He managed to build a small gold lead but it wasn't nearly enough to make up for the losing side lanes. It didn't take long for the Golden Guardians are start grouping and pushing its advantage. Pobelter could do little in teamfights as Team Liquid got decimated by GGS. Team Liquid's final stand resulted in it being aced with Pobelter being the last to fall before the Nexus blew up at 22 minutes.
Solid teamfighting in second half
June 16, 2018
Pobelter earned a 2/1/11 KDA on Galio in Team Liquid's victory against 100 Thieves.
ANALYSIS
The early skirmishes didn't go well for Pobelter as his early Hero's Entrance use wasn't able to do much in terms of turning around skirmishes. However, once Team Liquid started to group up, Pobelter was able to easily chain Galio's crowd control on targets to pick apart 100 Thieves in teamfights. All Pobelter had to do was help protect Doublelift in teamfights and rake in the assists as Team Liquid secured its first victory of the Summer in just over 30 minutes.
Just needed to lock down Flash Wolves
May 15, 2018
Pobelter finished Team Liquid's win over Flash Wolves with a 1/2/10 KDA as Malzahar.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter was involved in 11 of 15 kills during Team Liquid's come from behind win over Flash Wolves. His 10 assists tied for the second highest on the team and despite picking up only one kill, Pobelter did his job to help pick up the win. His use of Nether Grasp to lock down targets gave Team Liquid picks on priority targets in teamfights, allowing Doublelift to really pop off in 5-vs-5 situations.
Slow and steady in victory
May 14, 2018
Pobelter earned a 2/1/2 KDA on Vladimir as Team Liquid picked up a win against Royal Never Give up on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter had his work cut out for him as Xiaohu's Zoe was laying down the damage during the laning phase. However, he managed to get to the mid game unscathed and was able to help keep RNG occupied while Impact split pushed. The plan worked slowly but surely as TL trimmed away the out turrets. TL stumbled a bit but the few teamfight losses didn't hurt much. It took two Baron power plays from Team Liquid but it finally managed to secure its first win of the Mid-Season Invitational.
Ties for team-high kill participation
May 14, 2018
Pobelter finished TL's win over EVOS with a 4/3/12 KDA as Taliyah.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter used the roaming power of Taliyah to help Team Liquid dominate EVOS. He was involved in 16 of 19 kills, tying Xmithie for the team-high kill participation, while ending the game with the third-highest kill total and second-highest assist total, tied with Olleh. Pobelter helped Team Liquid keep their slim chances of making the knockout stage alive.
Great map coverage in mid game
March 4, 2018
Pobelter earned a 4/0/3 KDA on Orianna in Team Liquid's victory against 100 Thieves on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter's Orianna made good rotations throughout the mid game to build a lead. He was able to pick up some easy kills that led to taking objectives. Team Liquid looked dominant as it smashed teamfights and ran away with a lead in objectives. It was easy for TL to siege its way to victory and after scoring a 4-for-0 teamfight win there was nothing that 100 Thieves could do to protect its Nexus.
Misuses abilties in loss
February 19, 2018
Pobelter managed just a 1/3/7 KDA in Liquid's upset loss at the hands of the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Despite being on the strong mid laner of Corki, Pobelter was simply unable to do anything in this game against the Guardians. He started off my misusing his Summoner spells, leading to this first death. That basically set the tone on what kind of game this would be, as he and the rest of his team were simply shut down at every moment in a surprising show of strength from the Golden Guardians.
