Middle of the pack performance
November 28, 2017
WildTurtle finished the 2017 Summer Split with a 139/123/179 total KDA.
WildTurtle helped FlyQuest finish in seventh place during the regular season after an average season. He finished sixth in kills, seventh in assists, but had the eleventh highest KDA due to leading North American AD Carries with 123 deaths. He played better in the regional qualifiers, earning a 35/16/31 combined KDA while helping FlyQuest sweep Team Dignitas before falling to CLG. WildTurtle is the lone member of the 2017 roster returning in a starting role for FlyQuest in 2018.
Amazing performance nets victory over Dignitas
September 13, 2017
WildTurtle earned a series KDA of 19/1/17 in his team's 3-0 sweep over Dignitas.
Throughout the entire series, WildTurtle played out of his mind, dominating in each stage of every game to single-handedly bring his team a convincing series victory. Although he's been criticised in the past, he had no trouble finding an early lead for himself in lane and capitalizing in each game, dominating teamfights and handing his team prime positioning to secure the victory. Although he was heavily focused, he died only a single time in the series, earning a monstrous 36.0 KDA in the victory, showing his dominance throughout the 3-0 series sweep.
Main threat for FlyQuest
September 11, 2017
WildTurtle ended FlyQuest's 1-3 loss to CLG with a 16/15/14 combined KDA.
Turtle used Twitch in Game 1 to finish with a 4/4/5 KDA. He was involved in nine of 13 kills, finishing one kill behind Balls for the team lead. In Game 2, Turtle used Sivir to finish with a 2/4/4 KDA. He was involved in six of eight kills finishing tied with moon for his team's second-highest assist total. In Game 3, WildTurtle played Kog'maw and earned a 5/3/1 KDA. He was involved in six of nine kills, leading FlyQuest with five kills. For the final game of the series, Turtle played Tristana and finished with a 5/4/4 KDA. He was involved in nine of 11 kills, tying Balls for the team high with five kills.
Moments of brilliance not sufficient
July 31, 2017
WildTurtle went 4/10/4 as FlyQuest fell 0-2 to Cloud9 on Sunday.
WildTurtle started out strong in Game 1, as a 2-vs-2 outplay left him with a pair of quick assists. He even grew a decent CS lead in lane despite being up against Caitlyn, and was 3/1/3 at one point after a little more action. Unfortunately, he simply couldn't carry in the face of Jensen's massive Syndra. In Game 2, not as much can be said for WildTurtle, as his Jhin claimed a lone assist in the stomp by Cloud9.
Lackluster performance on Kalista throughout series loss
July 24, 2017
WildTurtle finished with a 5/9/12 KDA in FlyQuest's series loss to Team EnVyus on Sunday.
WildTurtle had his best Kalista performance of the series in Game 1 as he earned a 1/1/8 KDA. He had solid Fate's Calls throughout the mid game as FLY started to comeback and win teamfights to victory. In Game 2 WildTurtle didn't do much of anything as he finished with an 0/3/0 KDA. He never recovered after losing an early 2-vs-2 in the bottom lane. In Game 3 WildTurtle again suffered an early death, but showed some life in the second half. While he participated in more teamfights, it wasn't enough to overcome EnVy's massive gold lead and finished with a 4/5/4 KDA.
Low production in series loss
July 15, 2017
WildTurtle finished with a 2/5/2 KDA in FlyQuest's 2-0 series loss to Counter Logic Gaming on Friday.
WildTurtle had a good showing on Kalista in Game 1 despite his low production. He got first blood in a early 2-vs-2 skirmish in the bottom lane and then safely farmed up a nice CS lead. The teamfighting early went in FLY's favor, but it started to struggle in coordinating engages late. WildTurtle made good plays with Fate's Call, but it wasn't enough to stop CLG from winning a fight late and pushing to finish Game 1. In Game 2 WildTurtle's Kog'Maw struggled his way to a 1/4/0 KDA. He struggled to find good positioning in teamfights throughout and was caught by plenty of Thresh hooks. FLY couldn't do much to save its base from CLG's Elder Dragon empowered Baron push to close out the series.
Shown up by his replacement
June 25, 2017
WildTurtle went 1/6/7 in FlyQuest's 0-2 loss to TSM on Saturday.
Up against his former team, WildTurtle came nowhere close to the upset he was no doubt hoping for. Playing Jhin in both games against Doublelift's Tristana, he failed to have much of an impact at any time. He went down in CS in Game 1 and up in Game 2 during the laning phase, but this was largely inconsequential. His immobile champion left him highly vulnerable to the hard engages of TSM in both games, and he simply never found a position to do damage safely. His measly KDA is an accurate representation of his impact this series.
Costs FlyQuest Game 1 and series
June 12, 2017
WildTurtle finished FlyQuest's 1-2 loss to Immortals Saturday with a KDA of 11/12/16.
FlyQuest's solo laners found great success on their AD backline divers in Jarvan IV and Talon early on in Game 1. Unfortunately, this left WildTurtle on Ziggs to provide magic damage, and he looked potentially uncomfortable on the champion. Despite FlyQuest acquiring a large lead early on, WildTurtle managed to throw it away with overaggressive positioning, which, to be fair, could have happened on any champion. Moving into Game 2, WildTurtle's Ashe was caught out twice early on to help keep the gold close for IMT. He did have some good Enchanted Crystal Arrows come mid game, but still went down over 80 CS by the end of the win. In Game 3, WildTurtle's aggression came through yet again, as he Flashed forward to die multiple times early on, though he did also secure kills this way, to be fair. However, neither those kills nor his mediocre 4/4/4 KDA was enough to win the game for FlyQuest, even after they once again got a lead in the early game.
Solid series not enough
June 4, 2017
WildTurtle went an overall 7/6/13 as FlyQuest went down 0-2 to Echo Fox Saturday.
WildTurtle's Jhin had a strong start to Game 1, going up in CS and grabbing two early kills to start 2/0/0. He had some solid skillshots on Echo Fox's Baron take, but otherwise didn't do all that much for the remainder of the game, as he was heavily threatened by multiple members of Echo Fox. Game 2 started out much worse, as he gave up death after death to go 0/3/3 in the first 25 minutes. As the game dragged on, however, WildTurtle was given time to scale and turned into a monster in teamfights. Unfortunately, a positional error from FlyQuest threw the game to Echo Fox in the end.
Transfers to FlyQuest
May 26, 2017
FlyQuest have come to terms with Team SoloMid for the transfer of AD carry WildTurtle, reports Jacob Wolf of ESPN eSports.
FlyQuest had been in active pursuit of AD carries during the mid-season transfer period and have now landed on WildTurtle. With Doublelift's return to the TSM roster, it was always going to be tough for Turtle to find playing time. WildTurtle will replace Altec in FlyQuest's lineup for the Summer Split.
Key in late-game teamfights
May 15, 2017
WildTurtle earned a 5/2/4 KDA as TSM took down the Flash Wolves on Sunday.
On Caitlyn against the Ashe of Betty, WildTurtle had a quiet early game, going even in lane. He did have one classic death in the mid lane, stepping into the Flash-taunt range of MMD and being punished for it. However, because the game went to over 50 minutes, WildTurtle's damage potential in the late game was the highest of any champion on the map, and he was essential to cutting down Flash Wolves' frontline in the late teamfights that won the game for TSM.
Seals TSM's fate in early skirmish
May 14, 2017
WildTurtle finished TSM's loss to SKT on Saturday with a 2/4/2 KDA.
WildTurtle's Caitlyn did a good job keeping up with Bang's Ashe in CS early on, but in the first fight of the game at dragon, was immediately picked off as a result of getting hit by an Ashe Arrow. The loss of this fight is what started SKT's massive snowball rolling, and there was nothing TSM could do to stop it.
Crushes lane in victory
May 14, 2017
WildTurtle went 1/0/6 as TSM took down Gigabyte MARINES on Saturday.
After being pinched in the first round of bans, WildTurtle went to Caitlyn and looked unfazed. More than that, he and Biofrost even managed to find kills in the 2-vs-2 lane matchup, granting TSM the first turret. His range and the threat of TSM's other members left him untouched in fights, leaving him a deathless 1/0/6 in the win.
MildTurtle was a more appropriate name in loss to FW
May 13, 2017
WIldTurtle had a quiet game vs FW Thursday by only achieving a 2/2/1 KDA.
Although WildTurtle succeeded in not feeding, his Varus pick was perhaps a bit too safe. Embarrassingly, he lost wave pressure to Betty's weak laning champion of Jhin. To add to his frustration, Tahm Kench completely negated the fight swinging ability of his ult. He was also unsuccessful in using it to pick off FW players who strayed too far from the safety of the support catfish.
Unable to carry TSM to victory
May 11, 2017
WildTurtle tallied a 2/5/2 KDA in TSM's loss to SKT on Day 2 of the Mid-Season Invitational.
WildTurtle didn't have the greatest showing in this game against SKT on Thursday, but then again, no one on TSM really did. While he did get an early kill on Wolf on an invade from the entirety of TSM, that was just one of two kills he had in this game. Once the game got going, not even his Varus was able to do anything to stop the tide of SKT. He can hang his hat on the fact that he managed to take down Peanut for the SKT jungler's only death of the game, but other than that, there isn't else that he can look back on in this tough loss.
