Solid Xayah performance in victory
February 19, 2018
Apollo scored a 5/0/1 KDA on Xayah as Clutch Gaming picked up a victory against Team SoloMid on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo put together a solid performance on Xayah as he easily cruised through the laning phase. Clutch Gaming had plenty of tools to engage with, allowing Apollo plenty of freedom to dole out the damage. Apollo and crew dominated the teamfights throughout the second half of the game, slowly building its lead before making a final push to finish.
Damage carries in victory
February 18, 2018
Apollo scored a 3/1/7 KDA on Varus in Clutch Gaming's win against FlyQuest on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo had a relatively easy time exerting his will during the laning phase, running up a small lead in CS while keeping WildTurtle pushed under turret. When it was time for teamfights, Apollo didn't have to land Chains of Corruption and could easily pick up kills and assists off of the rest of CG's crowd control. Clutch Gaming dominated the teamfights in the second half as it ran away with a gold lead to victory. Apollo finished the game leading Clutch Gaming in damage dealt to champions as well as 100 percent kill participation.
Passable in loss
February 5, 2018
Apollo went 1/1/3 in Clutch Gaming's Sunday loss to Cloud9.
ANALYSIS
Apollo's Varus simply wasn't much of a factor one way or the other on Sunday. He kept even in farm early on, but it was Cloud9's objective control that gave them their lead, causing him to fall behind in gold to the better-scaling Kog'Maw on the opposing side. He had some reasonably good Varus ultimates in a couple of fights, but that's about all that can be said for him.
Outshined this time
January 28, 2018
Apollo finished CG's victory over CLG on Saturday with a 2/1/15 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Apollo's Varus performed just fine this game, though he was completely overshadowed by Febiven's Azir. Regardless, Apollo adopted to a supportive role just fine, landing solid Chains of Corruption to help lock down kills for his mid laner. This wasn't Apollo's game to carry, but he did his job well.
Solid performance in loss
January 22, 2018
Apollo scored a 2/1/0 KDA on Tristana as Clutch Gaming lost to Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo and Hakuho were Clutch Gaming's only lane that didn't fall behind and weren't enough to stop Echo Fox late. The laning phase was pretty much just a farm fest as the junglers focused on the top side, meaning Apollo didn't see much action until joining up for teamfights in the second half. He managed to pick up a few kills in those fights and his only death came during Clutch Gaming's final stand as it failed to protect the Nexus.
Don't gotta do nothin'
January 21, 2018
Apollo was 1/0/2 at the conclusion of Clutch Gaming's win over Golden Guardians on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
On Tristana, Apollo was certainly the least-contributing factor to CG's victory over GGS. He did his job as a late-game carry in that he managed to farm well, achieving the highest farm in the game by the end, but he didn't pull ahead of his counterpart til late in the game, when CG had more or less secured victory. CG's plays in the mid lane won them the game, as Apollo sat on the sidelines.
To sign with Clutch Gaming
November 21, 2017
Apollo is set to sign with Clutch Gaming for the 2018 season, reports Jacob Wolf of ESPN.
ANALYSIS
After Team EnVyUs was denied entry to the North American LCS, Apollo found himself without a home as his contract expired. As Jacob Wolf reports, he'll be joining Clutch Gaming, a new face in the league backed by the Houston Rockets. Clutch Gaming has reportedly been pursuing both LirA and Hakuho of the former EnVy lineup, meaning Apollo would be joined by at least two former teammates on the roster.
Disappoints outside of wins
August 22, 2017
Apollo's scoreline read 11/13/36 overall by the end of NV's 2-3 loss to CLG on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo, whom many have been touting as a top-tier AD carry this split, didn't have the biggest impact in this series. He looked fine on Varus in the two wins NV got, but even then was fairly assist-heavy, going 0/1/13 in Game 3. Meanwhile, his losses were extremely rough, particularly his 1/5/9 Game 5 on Kalista. His positioning got him killed multiple times throughout the teamfights in these games, and while he did manage to take some focus off of Nisqy's Kog'Maw, his lack of contribution in fights was arguably the biggest factor in NV's loss in Game 5.
Puts up a hell of a fight in Game 2
August 7, 2017
Apollo finished 5/7/8 in NV's 0-2 loss to Cloud9 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
There isn't much to be said for Apollo in Game 1, as his lane partner went down for first blood and C9 proceeded to steamroll NV. In Game 2, however, Apollo's Varus was instrumental to the lead his team found. He managed to not only acquire a large CS lead in lane, but also had the best kill participation on his team, from the AD carry role of all places. Still, this wasn't enough for a win.
Struggles to carry in series loss
August 5, 2017
Apollo finished with a 4/6/2 KDA in Team EnVyUs' series loss to Immortals on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo's Xayah got off to a rough start in Game 1 as EnVy got slaughtered in an early 1-for-4 teamfight. EnVy's one kill in the first fight was first blood for Apollo's Xayah but couldn't get away after as IMT chased it down. He continued to be a solid source of damage for EnVy, but it wasn't enough late. In Game 2 Apollo drafted a strong late game champion in Tristana, but failed to make it that far. The laning phase went well as he built a small CS lead, but struggled to transition the lead into more during the mid game. EnVy again got destroyed in teamfights and all Apollo could manage was a lowly 1/2/1 KDA.
Fails to carry in loss
July 30, 2017
Apollo manages just a 1/4/5 KDA in Team EnVyUs's loss to CLG on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo never seemed to live up to the name of his position in this series. This was despite being on some of the highest damage champions in the game with Varus and Tristana. Although some of his problems can merely be chocked up to the fact that his team was just playing completely out of sorts all series long. Apollo farmed well in both games and put out good amounts of damage, but just never got over the hump to make a huge impact with his play. Simply put, EnVyUs needs much more from their AD carry in the future.
Solid Caitlyn performance to close out reverse sweep
July 24, 2017
Apollo finished with a 15/6/13 KDA in Team EnVyUs' reverse sweep of FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Apollo put together a lowly 1/3/1 KDA performance on Caitlyn. He had an easy laning phase, but failed to get more than a CS advantage. In the second half teamfights, Apollo could barely get through the frontline as EnVy lost engages. In Game 2, Apollo got more aggressive on Varus on the laning phase, picking and winning a 2-vs-2 skirmish in the bottom lane and running away with a gold lead. Apollo had plenty of good protection in teamfights throughout the second half as he finished with a 4/0/4 KDA. In Game 3, Apollo returned to Caitlyn again ran away with a lead after an early gank got him kill participation on first blood. Apollo was crucial for EnVy in teamfights throughout the mid and late game as he led in damage dealt to champions on his way to finishing with a 10/3/8 KDA.
Enchanted Crystal Arrows on point in Game 2
July 17, 2017
Apollo finished with a 6/5/9 KDA in Team EnVyUs' 2-1 reverse sweep of Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Apollo did a lot more dying than killing as he wasn't much of an impact in teamfights. EnVy struggled to coordinate its defense against Echo Fox's pressure and quickly fell behind in gold and objectives after a Baron power play at the 21-minute mark. Apollo and crew held on a little longer, but couldn't turn around the momentum. In Game 2 Apollo raked in assists from long range snipes with Ashe's Enchanted Crystal Arrow initiated plenty of picks in the mid game. He picked up one of his two kills late as EnVy's Baron power play pushed to even up the series. In Game 3 Apollo stuck with Ashe and secured more kills, but there wasn't much teamfighting. Apollo finished with a lowly 3/1/1 KDA after securing first blood at the 16-minute mark. EnVy didn't have to secure many kills as Echo Fox ceded its base late, opting not to die trying to stop the Elder Dragon and Baron empowered pushed.
Struggled to kite out fights in Game 3 loss
July 1, 2017
Apollo finished with a 7/8/7 KDA in Team EnVyuS' series loss to Phoenix1 on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo had a lowly 0/3/2 KDA performance on Xayah in Game 1. He did his best to stay safe in teamfights, dodging as much crowd control as he could with Featherstorm, but it wasn't enough as P1 was still able to take him down. Apollo picked up his play in Game 2 on Xayah as he finished with a decent 3/3/4 KDA. He got some early gank help in the laning phase and then rotated well with the rest of EnVy in the mid game as it ran up a lead in turrets. EnVy struggled to push its advantage late, but managed to win after punishing a greedy Baron call from P1. In Game 3 Apollo had a rough laning phase but managed to turn things around in the mid game. Apollo had plenty of protection in teamfights, but struggled to break through the frontline to take down the squishy damage carries. He finished with a 4/2/1 KDA in the Game 3 loss.
Chains of Corruption on point
June 6, 2017
Apollo went an overall 3/5/14 in Team EnVyUs' 1-2 loss to Team Dignitas Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo started out the series on Xayah for Game 1, but after getting a pair of assists in an early counter gank, didn't accomplish much of anything. He was able to stay up in CS, but didn't translate it into anything tangible, so the gold went to waste in the loss. Switching to Varus for the remainder of the series, Apollo looked stronger. He continued to get CS leads, but this time he also landed some solid Chains of Corruption to help NV take teamfights. This contributed to an easy win in Game 2, and almost allowed NV to comeback in Game 3, if not for one last teamfight loss 51 minutes into the game.
