Shields his way to win
October 16, 2017

ANALYSIS
Meiko was able to utilize Lulu's shielding and Ardent Censer itemization to help EDG take a one-sided win over C9. Meiko was involved in 20 of 22 kills, leading EDG with 20 assists. Meiko will need to continue to enable his teammates if EDG have any hope of making the quarterfinals.
Involved, but can't make the big play
October 7, 2017
Meiko used Rakan to finish EDG's loss to C9 with a 0/2/5 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Meiko was unable to find key engages to help EDG come from behind and take out C9 on Saturday. He was involved in five of six kills, leading EDG with six assists, but it wasn't enough to stop C9 from taking down EDG. With the LPL champions falling to 0-3 in Group A, they'll need a ton of help in Week 2 to make the knockout stages.
Nearly pulls off upset
October 6, 2017
Meiko used Janna during Friday's loss to SKT, finishing with a 1/2/14 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Meiko and EDG got off to a great start, but were outscaled in the late game to give SKT a come from behind win. Meiko was involved in 15 of 17 EDG kills, leading the game with 14 assists. He did his best to help EDG snowball their way to an early victory, but the team just couldn't close things out early as they dropped to 0-2 in the group stage.
Barely over 50 percent kill participation
September 2, 2017
Meiko ended EDG's 3-2 win over RNG with a 1/16/35 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Meiko struggled to set up much in the first two games ending with a 0/5/5 KDA in Game 1 as Braum and a 0/6/3 KDA in Game 2 as Taric. Things turned around in Game 3 as Meiko finished with a 0/3/8 KDA as Lulu and evened the series in Game 4 with a 1/0/5 KDA as Janna. Meiko saved his best performance for last, ending the series deciding Game 5 with a 0/2/14 KDA as Alistar. Game 5 was Meiko's only game with over ten assists, as he finished the series involved in only 36 of 60 kills.
Strong Alistar showing nets victory
August 13, 2017
Meiko earned a series KDA of 2/4/28 in his team's 2-0 sweep over DAN.
ANALYSIS
Picking Alistar in both games against DAN, Meiko had an extremely strong performance that allowed his team to easily sweep the enemy team. Starting off Game 1, he built a lead in lane and completely shut down the enemy Kalista. In doing so, he opened the game wide open for his team, allowing EDG to take teamfights easily, mounting a large lead and never losing control. In doing so, he facilitated a convincing victory while participating in the majority of his team's kills. Game 2 went even better as his team ironed out the problems from the previous game, completely eliminating any chance for DAN to come back in the series. After winning back-to-back teamfights, Meiko moved with his team and close out the game in 27 minutes. With the victory, EDG secured the 2-0 series sweep.
Spectacular supporting
August 7, 2017
Meiko went an overall 1/0/21 by the end of EDG's 2-0 sweep over I May on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Meiko's Lulu had one job in Game 1: protect iBoy's Kog'Maw. He did this to a tee, as iBoy was already farmed to late game by the time real teamfights broke out. In Game 2, Meiko played a more active role on Rakan. Finding picks and engages for EDG, Meiko ended with a fantastic 1/0/14 KDA, tying Scout for the highest kill participation in the game.
Strong series despite weak stat sheet
July 24, 2017
Meiko posted a 2/5/6 KDA in EDward Gaming's 0-2 series loss to Suning Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Meiko played two games of Braum. Not everyone who won did everything right, and not everyone who loses did everything wrong. That was the case for Meiko throughout the series. He had solid builds for the situations at hand, but his deaths didn't come due to misplays or carelessness. Meiko played Braum very well, and but a tank support can only do so much for the team -- plus it can't correct poor macro play.
Impressive play nets victory
July 20, 2017
Meiko earned a 2/5/27 KDA in his team's 2-0 sweep over JDG.
ANALYSIS
Picking Rakan in Game 1, Meiko was able to swiftly find his team a victory. Keeping the key members on his team alive throughout the game, he fell only a single time as his team snowballed over JDG. Landing multi-man knockups and ultimates, he was able to bring his team back-to-back teamfight victories, resulting in a 26-minute Game 1 win. Game 2 didn't go as well as Meiko picked Thresh, but his performance was strong nonetheless. Landing skillshots, he was able to lock down key members in fights that allowed his team to control the pace of the game. Although he was often killed in the process, he participated in over 75 percent of his team's kills, facilitating EDG in their victory. Although not a flashy performance, his strong play allowed EDG to take a 30-minute victory, closing out Game 2 with ease to secure the 2-0 series sweep.
Punishes Samsung's missteps during close match
July 7, 2017
Meiko earned a 1 2/8 KDA during Edward Gaming's defeat at the hands of Samsung Galaxy.
ANALYSIS
Meiko found himself in an interesting spot against Samsung Galaxy. On the one hand, he did an excellent job of punishing Samsung's attempts to overextend and split-push in the mid game thanks to his Abyssal Voyage. On the other hand, his champion, Tahm Kench, is just about the weakest laning support in the entire game, and that turned out to be critical for EDG. The fact of the matter was, not even an early double kill against Samsung's bottom lane thanks to Clearlove was enough to allow Meiko and Zet to outright bully out Ruler and CoreJJ, both of whom just farmed up and outscaled them. While Meiko's play was certainly serviceable, his unfortunate champion pick ended up being an excellent example of how heavily the draft phase can impact games. Had Meiko been playing a Thresh or a Zyra, then this game would have easily ended up as an EDG victory. As it stands, Meiko fell pray to the same late-game mayhem that took down the rest of his teammates, and it was the LCK, not the LPL, who walked away with the victory.
Can't protect team
June 9, 2017
Meiko ended Friday's sweep to DAN Gaming with a 2/8/10 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Meiko ended Game 1 with a 1/5/6 KDA as Karma. He was involved in seven of his team's kills, but struggled to really swing the momentum after EDG fell behind early. In Game 2, he switched to Zyra and ended with a 1/3/4 KDA. He picked up more kills than his AD carry in the game and provided decent burst damage in fights. Again, EDG fell behind early and never recovered.
