Questionable engages
March 19, 2018
Smoothie ended Cloud9's loss to FlyQuest with a KDA of 2/5/6 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Charged with playing Alistar in this game, Smoothie's engagements needed to be rock solid if Cloud9 wanted any chance of getting onto WildTurtle's Kog'Maw through four tanks. Unfortunately, they were less than amazing. In one particularly embarrassing moment, Smoothie Flashed over a wall only to die before landing any real crowd control. The rest of his engages weren't this poor, but they weren't the stellar fight starters Cloud9 desperately needed.
Early miscues come back to haunt him
March 4, 2018
Smoothie tallied a 0/4/11 KDA as Leona in Cloud9's loss against Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie opted for the playmaking Leona in this series, but could never manage to really give his team an edge in this loss. He missed an early ability that could have secured another early game kill, but Sneaky cleaned up his mess with three kills in the first 13 minutes. As things progressed, however, he and Sneaky started to get picked apart by the powerful Stixxay, who scaled into the late game and carried CLG to a surprising win.
Denied Call of the Forge God throughout win
February 26, 2018
Smoothie's Braum finished with a 0/0/8 KDA in Cloud9's victory against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The laning phase was uneventful for Smoothie until Cloud9 started to rotate into the bottom lane after the 10-minute mark. After C9 built a small lead, it set a very fast tempo, quickly splitpushing objectives while CG struggled to coordinate its defense. Whenever Solo's Ornn used Call of the Forge Gods, Smoothie was ready to block it with Unbreakable which took away one of Clutch Gaming's best engage tools. Cloud9's teamfight dominance let it quickly push to victory after securing a Baron kill. Smoothie collected plenty of assists during the skirmishes in the second half to finish with a solid 67 percent kill participation.
Great use of Devour in comeback win
February 11, 2018
Smoothie went 1/1/10 in Cloud9's win over FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Choosing Tahm Kench in this series, Smoothie managed to keep his teammates alive extremely well. Without his expert uses of Devour throughout this game, a Cloud9 comeback wouldn't have been possible. By keeping his team alive, he prevented FlyQuest from growing into even more of a monster in the mid game. With the team kept in check, Jensen had enough time to activate beast mode and drag Cloud9 across the finish line for their seventh win of the split.
Decent showing on Alistar in victory over OpTic
February 5, 2018
Smoothie earned a 3/2/5 KDA during his team's victory over OpTic on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Although the rest of his team had a stellar performance against OpTic, Smoothie's performance was slightly less impressive. Being caught out of position at times, he racked up twice the deaths of anyone else on his team; though this doesn't detract from his good plays during the game. Hitting key targets in fights with his combo, he was able to simultaneously engage onto the enemy team while peeling for his carries. As a result, the rest of Cloud 9 had no trouble controlling the game, earning a 36-minute victory.
Cows Clutch Gaming
February 5, 2018
Smoothie went 0/3/5 in Cloud9's Sunday win over Clutch Gaming.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie had a remarkable performance on Alistar from start to finish, beginning with his early roam to trap LirA in the jungle and secure first blood for his team. He quickly followed up with a second roam to the mid lane for another C9 kill, and his mid-to-late game was equally impressive. He found a number of solid engagements for Cloud9, and although he went down a couple times towards the end, it wasn't consequential enough to tarnish his performance.
Waltzes his way to victory
January 28, 2018
Smoothie went 1/0/10 on Taric during Cloud9's win against 100 Thieves on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie lived up to his name in this game, playing smoothly from start to finish. With most of the action in this game happening up in the top lane, it's no surprise that he and Sneaky managed to end the game unscathed. Still, this bot lane duo is playing like butter thus far and should help Cloud9 to wins all season.
Quiet until the late game in victory
January 21, 2018
Smoothie finished with a 2/0/7 KDA on Braum in Cloud9's win against Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
There wasn't much of a chance for Smoothie and Sneaky to take over during the laning phase. Despite plenty of skirmishing in the bottom lane, Smoothie took a 0/0/0 scoreline late into the matchup. He was taking part in a lot of the skirmishing but sadly didn't pick up any assists until after 29 minutes in. However, Smoothie provided some crucial crowd control to prevent CLG from disengaging as C9 began to take over teamfights. After ripping apart CLG in back-to-back teamfights, which included an ace, C9 took his first win of the 2018 season.
Can't out shield Meiko
October 16, 2017
Smoothie used Janna during Sunday's loss to EDG, earning a 0/4/5 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie was unable to match Meiko's shielding during the one-sided loss to EDG. He was involved in five of six C9 kills, leading the team with five assists. C9's loss to EDG hurts their chances of qualifying in second place, but they remain in control of their own destiny as long as they can beat ahq.
Uses Janna well to aid Sneaky in bot lane
October 15, 2017
Smoothie tallied a 0/0/7 KDA in Cloud9's win against ahq on Sunday at the 2017 World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie went with the meta support of Janna in this game and was flawless. Not only did he help his lane partner dominate and give C9 quite the advantage. Smoothie has been pretty quiet during these group stages, but this was a nice showing that allowed C9 to make their way into the knockout stage. As long as they can bring more of this consistency, they may have a shot at the semifinals.
Heavily involved in C9's win
October 7, 2017
Smoothie used Lulu to finish Saturday's win over EDG with a 0/1/10 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie was able to mostly keep his carries safe during Saturday's win over EDG. He was involved in 10 of 12 kills, leading C9 with 10 assists. Smoothie utilized Lulu's shielding and Wild Growth to keep his carries safe in teamfights while helping C9 claim second place in Group A.
Displays impressive skill on Rakan to dominate Dire Wolves
September 26, 2017
Smoothie earned a 2/2/19 KDA on Rakan during his team's victory on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Although Smoothie had a rough start in his team's game against Dire Wolves, he was able to bring things back with ease and show his skill on Rakan. After laning phase, he was able to weave in between the enemy and his own team, dominating teamfights with a mixture of healing and crowd control that allowed his team to swiftly take over the game. Despite Dire Wolves best efforts, it was not enough, allowing Smoothie to lead his team to a 25-minute victory and secure show his skills off throughout the process.
Strange slip-up in lane
September 24, 2017
Smoothie ended 0/1/5 in Cloud9's win over Dire Wolves on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
For the most part, Smoothie's performance on Janna in this game was similar to his AD carry's: he wasn't the most impactful but wasn't awful either. The exception to this was a bizarre death in the 2-vs-2 during laning phase, which was very uncharacteristic. Still, it's not likely this will continue to be a problem as the tournament continues.
Game-high assist total
September 23, 2017
Smoothie finished Cloud 9's win over Team oNe with a 1/0/10 KDA as Rakan.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie was involved in 11 of 13 kills in the win, leading C9 with 10 assists. He was able to use the Rakan combo to set up multiple engages throughout the game. He roamed well to create picks in the early and mid game and finished behind only Jensen in kill participation, but one-upped his mid laner by keeping a flawless KDA.
Fantastic in wins
September 12, 2017
Smoothie went 1/11/48 in Cloud9's 3-1 win over CLG Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Smoothie's Rakan in Games 1 and 2 was absolutely stellar despite not being paired with Xayah, as he went an incredible 1/3/23 across the two games, landing great initiation after great initiation. His Game 3 on Thresh was lackluster, but his Game 4 on Janna was crucial to his team's narrow win. With Sneaky having the game of his season on Xayah, Smoothie's ability to keep him alive allowed Cloud9 to take the game, along with his self-sacrifice to get his team a Baron buff.
