Struggles as things progress in series defeat
September 13, 2017
Adrian earned a series KDA of 0/10/10 in his team's 0-3 defeat at the hands of FLY.
ANALYSIS
Starting the series out on Nami, Adrian had a decent performance despite his team's shortcomings. Although he was able to participate in all of his team's kills, it was not enough to close things out. As his lanes all fell behind, he could not gain vision control to allow his team to find positioning and take favorable fights. After losing the first game, Adrian's performance noticeably dropped, with him being focused early and unable to get anything done in the remainder of the series. Allowing FlyQuest to take fights easily, he was dominated in the final two games of the series, allowing FlyQuest to take a 3-0 series victory.

Closed out series with a solid Janna performance
August 7, 2017
Adrian finished Team Dignitas series victory against Team Liquid on Sunday with a 3/11/27 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Adrian was on Blitzcrank in the first two games of the series. In Game 1 Adrian struggled to land impactful Rocket Grabs early, but redeemed himself late. The story was similar in Game 2, but there was no redemption for him late. In Game 3, Adrian's Janna wasn't enough to disengage from an early gank as Altec died for first blood. Adrian's Howling Gales and Monsoons were on point throughout the mid game as DIG took control. In the final push, Adrian traded a death for a kill before the rest of DIG took down the Nexus.
Picked up win against former team
July 30, 2017
Adrian finished Team Dignitas' 2-1 series victory against Immortals on Saturday with a 2/4/26 KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Adrian's Karma didn't get much done during the laning phase, but provided plenty of boost to teammates during the fights after. Adrian picked up lots of assists as he earned 100 percent kill participation and a 1/1/11 KDA. In Game 2 Adrian to play Janna and provided plenty of peels during the laning phase. However Adrian's good disengages from IMT weren't enough late as DIG lost teamfight trades and slowly bled objectives. In Game 3, Adrian finally came through with some winning engages during the laning phase on Alistar. When DIG began to roam in the mid game, Adrian had enough tank stats to dive turrets and pick up assists. There was little that IMT could do as DIG kept winning engages and building it gold lead to victory. Adrian finished with a solid 1/1/11 KDA as Dignitas took down the first place Immortals.
Demonstrates lane dominance
July 25, 2017
Adrian went an overall 2/7/17 by the end of Dignitas' 1-2 loss to Cloud9 Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Adrian and Altec continued to assert their dominance in lane in Game 1, finding first blood onto a lonely Sneaky when he was caught out by Adrian's Alistar. Adrian was then crucial in the game's first skirmish, which netted DIG a lead they never let go of. Adrian went with Thresh for Games 2 and 3, but encountered the problem of trying to look good on support with a losing team. He did at least manage this somewhat in Game 3, when DIG's duo found a 2-vs-2 kill onto Smoothie, but otherwise, he just couldn't get much done.
Shows how to support
July 23, 2017
Adrian tallied a 0/5/24 KDA in Dignitas' surprising win over TSM on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Adrian played two varied support playstyles in this series, but he was great on both of them. He started off with the more pick-focused Blitzcrank in Game 1, which allowed him to easily set up his teammates for kills at every point in the match. He seriously showed up Biofrost, who was also on a pick-focused champion in this game. He switched over to Janna in Game 2, and was no less of an important piece of the puzzle. He used her full kit to give his team enough sustainability in the win to lock up the sweep against TSM.
Strong showing in series sweep over CLG
July 18, 2017
Adrian earned a 5/4/21 KDA over two games of Thresh to claim a 2-0 victory over CLG on Saturday.
ANALYSIS

Struggling to get things started, he was able to roam and being to pick up kills but missed a couple skillshots. Despite this, he founds his way onto key targets and create picks for his team that snowballed them ahead. With the lead, Dignitas has no problem closing out Game 1. Game 2 went better for Adrian who got things started early and never stopped. The only downside to his play was him picking up last hits on champions rather than gifting the kills over. With his immaculate performance, he earned a 5/2/13 KDA in his team's 29-minute victory, allowing Dignitas to secure the 2-0 series sweep.
Lands plenty of good hooks in series victory over former team
July 17, 2017
Adrian finished Team Dignitas' 2-1 series victory against Phoenix1 on Sunday with a 2/10/21 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Adrian had a nice performance on Blitzcrank in Game 1, finding plenty of picks with Rocket Grab as Dignitas blazed to victory. He got caught out a few times but always got an assist with the death and finished with a 0/2/8 KDA. In Game 2 his hooks on Thresh weren't as fruitful, as he threw them defensively while trying to disengage from P1. Even his Flays weren't enough as DIG got ran over in teamfights late and lost in under 25 minutes. Adrian redeemed himself on Thresh in Game 3 as he finished with a 2/3/11 KDA. Thresh's Death Sentence was used to find plenty of picks throughout Game 3 as he earned a 72 percent kill participation.

Signs on with Team Dignitas
June 17, 2017
Adrian has signed on with Team Dignitas, the team reported on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Adrian will likely provide Dignitas quite a bit of punch from the support role when Big sits, as the former Team Liquid support could become an excellent in-split addition to a team surprisingly climbing up the standings. One thing to note -- Adrian reportedly left Liquid because he was unhappy with his role as a substitute support. While it would seem unlikely that Dignitas would bring in Adrian without at least going over the role for the support player moving forward, it's a situation to monitor as the Summer Split progresses.
Parts ways with Liquid
April 3, 2017
Adrian has moved on from Team Liquid, reports Jacob Wolf of ESPN.
ANALYSIS
In a mutually agreed upon decision, Adrian will no longer be playing for Team Liquid. While there was no official reason given, sources say that it has to do with disagreements over pay and his role on the team. When he was signed to the team, he was brought on as the full-time support player. This role was quickly changed once the team began starting Matt on a regular basis. The team allegedly asked him to sign a different contract designating him as a substitute for a lower salary, but he refused. This certainly was a major factor in the decision to split ways. Look for Adrian to be picked by a team in need of a support for the upcoming Summer Split.
Mediocre in Game 1 of series loss against P1
March 20, 2017
Adrian posted a 2/3/4 KDA in Game 1 of Liquid's series loss to Phoenix1.
ANALYSIS
Adrian chose Zyra in his only outing of the series and didn't have the greatest performance that a support could have. He picked up a kill in a quick teamfight in the early game, but they ended up losing four in the fight, which was a sign of things to come. From then on, they continued to get pushed around until Phoenix1 picked up the win in 34 minutes. He was switched out for Matt in Game 2.

March 8, 2017
Adrian has departed Phoenix1 and Team Liquid has purchased his contract rights as reported by ESPN's Jacob Wolf this morning.
ANALYSIS

Likely as a result of team disagreements and current underwhelming results, Adrian has departed the team.
Impressive teamfighting
March 4, 2017
Adrian went 1/6/27 as Phoenix1 took down Dignitas 2-1 Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Adrian started out this series on Nami for Game 1. His sustain helped Arrow out to an early CS lead, but Adrian's Tidal Waves were what really impressed in this game. He consistently hit them across multiple members in teamfights, and used them to set up great picks in the mid game. He stuck with Nami in Game 2, but had trouble accomplishing anything other than an assist on P1's lone kill as DIG took the game. Adrian switched over to Lulu for the deciding game, and while P1's lead originated in the mid lane, Adrian was helpful in pushing it. Despite being behind, Dignitas had a considerable amount of backline threat, but Adrian's shields and Wild Growth ensured that DIG had no window back into the game.

Hitting bubbles and ultimates at every opportunity, he allowed P1 to claim teamfight victories for themselves that resulted in allowing them to close out the game quickly and convincingly. As a result of the victory, Phoenix1 claimed the series victory 2-0.

February 18, 2017

ANALYSIS
Adrian had a good mid-late game on Miss Fortune support, despite poor positioning and careless mistakes he made early in the game.
