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.
Struggles to be relevant in loss vs Echo Fox
February 12, 2018
Pobelter posted a KDA of 1/4/5 in Liquid's Sunday loss to Echo Fox.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter's Ryze couldn't do much throughout the game thanks to a great draft from Echo Fox. FeniX's Cassiopeia prevented Pobelter from popping off in the early game too much, keeping Pobelter in check for the most part despite Pobelter gaining an early lead. Come late game teamfights, Pobelter was near useless, despite having items, kept in check by Adrian's Braum while the rest of Liquid's damage couldn't follow him up. Ending with a 1/4/5 KDA looked bad for sure, but Pobelter's struggles weren't entirely his fault as Liquid as a team couldn't keep up with Echo Fox.
Carries Liquid to big win
February 5, 2018
Pobelter carried Liquid to a win vs FlyQuest on Saturday with a 10/1/3 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter's Corki popped off in a huge way against FlyQuest, despite receiving constant jungle pressure early in the game. Mechanically outplaying ganks with ease gave the rest of Liquid the opening to get ahead, which then got funneled back into Pobelter in the form of kills. Once Pobelter got rolling, Corki's magic damage crits and constant poke shredded through FlyQuest, with P.O.B ending the game with a whopping 24,400 damage dealt to enemy champions, over 10,000 more damage than the second highest total in the game. Pobelter's campaign to prove himself as an elite mid laner in the West certainly picked up steam here, with Pobelter's only death coming from a game-ending Nexus dive, leading to a 10/1/3 KDA and lightning-fast Liquid win.
Pops off on Azir in swift victory
February 5, 2018
Pobelter earned a 8/0/4 KDA on Azir in Team Liquid's win against the Golden Guardians on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter had a dominant Azir performance against the Golden Guardians. He received help just in time during to turn a gank against him into a double kill. He continued to rake in kills and assists as he rotated around the map to help knock down objectives. Pobelter's efforts earned him 100 percent kill participation and most damage dealt to champs in game.
Mid lane monster
January 21, 2018
Pobelter finished with a 4/2/6 KDA in Team Liquid's win over OpTic Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
It was painfully clear who the better mid laner was in this game, as Pobelter simply did whatever he wanted all game long. This gave Liquid a big advantage to use all across the map. Whereas OpTic never seemed able to capitalize on any advantages, Liquid knew how to do it with ease. With a roster full of talent, this Liquid team looks poised to make some major waves in the NA LCS.
Sets up team for success
January 21, 2018
Pobelter went 2/1/7 as Team Liquid triumphed Saturday over TSM.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter took the simple tools of Malzahar and made the most out of them in this game, roaming first top and then bottom to pick up first blood and then grab three more kills for his team. His ultimate continued to be of great use as TL relentlessly pushed their advantage, ending the game 11 kills to one at 28 minutes.
Slated to start per reports
November 20, 2017
Pobelter expected to start for Team Liquid, according to ESPN's Jacob Wolf.
ANALYSIS
Once upon a time, a young Pobelter was slated to start for Team Curse, until a deal went sour and cast Pobelter's career into doubt. Ever since then, Pobelter has racked up NA LCS finals appearances, one successful showing with CLG and, more recently, one unsuccessful outing with Immortals. Coming into the new season, it has been announced that Pobelter will start for Team Liquid, which shouldn't come as much of a shock. With the likes of Goldenglue and Mickey showing problems with consistency throughout their respective tenures as starting mid laner. Is the future bright for Liquid? It's hard to say, but they could do a lot worse than Pobelter, and it gives Pobelter a unique opportunity to add on to his legacy by taking a previously bottom-tier team and make it into a top-tier threat.
Acquired by Team Liquid
November 18, 2017
Pobelter has been acquired by Team Liquid, Jacob Wolf of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
With Immortals being denied entry into the newly franchised NA LCS for the 2018 season, the fates of the Immortals players were a bit uncertain. It's now been revealed, however, that Pobelter, along with Xmithie, Cody Sun, and AnDa, have been acquired by Team Liquid. At the moment, it is not clear whether Pobelter will actually start for the team come January. The team will assess whether it will go with Pobelter or current mid laner, Mickey, with the possibility of selling Pobelter's contract to another team still on the table.
World Champion hula-hooper
October 13, 2017
Pobelter disappointed against FNC by going 1/3/8 in a tough loss on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter opted to play the relatively safe mid-lane champion of Orianna. The stalwart in the mid lane for IMT has seen better days, as he was off from the get-go. The strength of Orianna is her wave clear, and the game-changing potential of her ultimate. However, instead of landing soul-crushing Shockwaves, Pobelter instead was more adept at making a hula-hoops appear on the screen. At critical moments he whiffed, which is never going to allow a team to advance on the Worlds stage. Additionally, his build was a bit stunted as it focused mostly on magic penetration versus a composition that only had one champion focusing on magic resist, which ultimately meant Pobelter's burst potential was limited.
