Utility Rekkles?
October 13, 2017
Rekkles played a quiet, but effective game vs. IMT by netting a 2/1/5 KDA in their win on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles seemingly learned from his Week 1 mistake of trying too hard carry regardless of the situation. Instead he played more of a utility role on Xayah, providing DPS from range, and more importantly being a potent split-pusher. The pressure he was able to achieve around the map kept IMT on the back foot as the enemy team tried to track him down; however, Rekkles' superior movement meant the IMT collapses were fruitless. Additionally when teamfights broke out his CC was used effectively for both engage and retreat. Overall the game was a reminder that Rekkles can play many styles, adding another dimension to the team making it even more formidable in upcoming matches.
Brings home the win over GIGABYTE
October 12, 2017
Rekkles tallied a 4/3/3 KDA in Fnatic's tiebreaker win over GIGABYTE Marines on Thursday at the 2017 World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles went with a Sivir against the Tristana of NoWay and got off to an early lead in the laning phase. He used Sivir's waveclear to farm his way to an early lead and grow into a late game threat. While Rekkles didn't have any kills in the early going of the game, he found his fair share in the late stages to help his team easily move past GIGABYTE. It was an end to an incredible day that saw Fnatic win four straight games to qualify for the quarterfinals.
Not allowed to scale and carry
October 12, 2017
Rekkles used Twitch to earn a 1/2/4 KDA during Fnatic's Thursday loss to Longzhu.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles picked up a hyper-carry marksman, but was unable to ever get to a point where he could take over the game. He was involved in five of seven kills, finishing with the second-highest assist total, but only the third-highest kill total with one. Rekkles remains the main threat for Fnatic as they start group stage at 0-4.
Critical mistake costs Fnatic the game against Immortals
October 6, 2017
Rekkles earned a 6/1/2 KDA on Twitch during FNC's 50-minute loss against IMT.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the vast majority of the game against Immortals, Rekkles played flawlessly, netting his team the upper hand in the game. Despite sOAZ being put far behind, Rekkles was able to keep his team in contention and dominate. Unfortunately, his play came to demonstrate that all good things do come to an end as Rekkles found himself in an extremely poor situation. Nearly 50-minutes into the game, he made an aggressive play, trying to catch an enemy player off guard. The result was him being immediately picked off, allowing his team to lose a fight, allowing Immortals to surge from behind and close out the game with a gold deficit
Strong showing despite loss
October 6, 2017
Rekkles earned a 4/3/5 KDA on Varus during his team's loss against GAM.
ANALYSIS
Although Rekkles was able to put up a decent performance in his team's defeat, it was nowhere near enough to claim victory. After falling behind early due to a surprising tactic by the GAM bottom lane, he started bouncing back by picking up kills in disorganized skirmishes. Although he was able to pick up a couple kills, he was focused heavily in the process and could not find a kill onto the enemy carry. With the huge threat constantly alive in fights, Rekkles found himself simply outclassed, allowing his team to lose a final teamfight, resulting in a 24-minute defeat.
Consistent performance in domination over HKA
September 28, 2017
Rekkles earned a series KDA of 14/2/18 in Fnatic's 3-0 sweep against HKA on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Known for being one of the most consistent players on Fnatic, Rekkles lived up to his name in his team's swift 3-0 sweep over HKA. Starting things off on Xayah, he had a collected performance that allowed his team to swiftly take over the game. With early kills under his belt, he was able to join his team as they exerted pressure over HKA. With extremely calculated play, he was able to output massive damage to claim a convincing game victory. Game 2 saw a similar story with Rekkles once again on Xayah. Although he didn't participate in all of his team's kills, he was able to make an impact where it mattered, allowing Fnatic to take another convincing victory. Game 3 saw Rekkles best performance yet, picking Sivir and once again dominating lane. After, he brought more utility to his team, allowing Fnatic to storm their way down the enemy lines, kiting in teamfights and simultaneously dealing insane amounts of damage. In doing so, he was able to help his team win back-to-back teamfights, taking a convincing 35-minute victory and closing out the series 3-0.
Flawless Tristana play nets victory
September 28, 2017
Rekkles earned a 4/0/2 KDA on Tristana throughout his team's victory over KLG on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Being given one of, if not the best champion in the bottom lane, it was no surprise that Rekkles was able to dominate from the beginning of the game and use his advantage to pick up a convincing victory. After finding an early lead thanks to his support, he was able to easily showcase his own mechanical skill coupled with Fnatic's teamwork to find an early lead. With the lead, Fnatic had no trouble forcing fights and taking objectives, quickly choking KLG out of the game.

Rekkles earned a 5/1/5 KDA on Varus in his team's victory over Young Generation on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Although the rest of Fnatic had some hardships in the team's victory over Young Generation, the team's bottom lane was sound throughout. Rekkles started off strong and never slowed, finding a lead for himself in lane and making up for any shortcomings the rest of his team had. With godlike micro decisions, he was able to decimate the enemy carries and simply outplay the enemy team in fights. Picking up kills left and right, he led Fnatic to back-to-back victories, closing out the back and forth game in 52-minutes.

Only solid Fnatic member
August 28, 2017
10/4/11 was Rekkles' overall KDA in Fnatic's 1-3 Saturday loss to Misfits.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles was the only member of his team to have consistently good games on Saturday. Playing Ashe for the first three games of the series, his Enchanted Crystal Arrows were solid, and he generally maintained a farm advantage. Even as his team was run over, he managed to keep his deaths to four total in the first two games, and went deathless in the next two, despite losing Game 4. Unfortunately, Rekkles' play wasn't remotely enough to take the series for his team.

Controlled aggression results in victory over Misfits
July 31, 2017
Rekkles earned a series KDA of 8/2/2 in Fnatic's 2-0 sweep over Misfits.
ANALYSIS
Starting things off on Ashe, Rekkles put up a massive performance and secured his team a convincing victory. Although he didn't pick up kills in lane, he was able to farm nicely, setting himself up for teamfights. In doing so, he shredded the enemy team in fights, remaining safe while taking down key targets. This allowed him to earn a perfect 4/0/0 KDA in his team's Game 1 victory. Game 2 went just about the same as Rekkles found himself on Varus and once again at an early lead. Though he was focused heavily this time by the burst and dive of Misfits, he dealt substantial damage before falling in fights. This resulted in a 26-minute victory for Fnatic, securing their 2-0 sweep in the series.
Quiet strength helps Caps carry
July 16, 2017
Rekkles went 9/1/14 as Fnatic took down Vitality 2-0 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles started out the series with a Rekkles-style pick, which is to say, an out-of-meta one, this time in the form of Sivir. Still, he had no trouble making the pick work for his team. With Caps' Syndra ahead from an early stage, Rekkles' main job was to provide movement speed and backup damage, but he didn't stop there, as he actually ended the game with the most farm, gold, and damage dealt despite his mid laner's slightly flashier KDA. In Game 2 on Varus, Rekkles again found success, albeit more quietly than Caps. While his mid laner made roams happen across the map and found fancy multi kills, Rekkles simply farmed and put out damage from the backline for the most part, again ending with the most farm and gold in the game.
Tristana fails to reach hyper carry status in loss
July 8, 2017
Rekkles scored a 3/1/2 KDA in Fnatic's loss to Cloud9 on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The only lane Fnatic had any sort of lead in was Rekkles' Tristana. He built up a small CS advantage in lane, but struggled in the early skirmishes. The mid game teamfights went a little better for him as he pick up kills and escaped with Rocket Jump. However, his kills only made the teamfight trade even as his teammates sacrificed to get him fed. Fnatic never really stood a chance in the late game after falling so far behind.
Strong KDA in loss
July 7, 2017
Rekkles was the high point for FNC in its loss against C9 Tuesday by going 5/1/3.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles did what a Twitch player is supposed to do in order be a hyper carry in late game. He stayed safe early and quietly farmed tin order to pick up the items needed to bring the damage. By late game, his KDA remained pristine and his build solid, however, the fact no one else on the team was ahead, let alone a threat, meant his usefulness was void as he could never really get into a position that safely helped the team take a game-swinging teamfight.
