100 Thieves
Stellar teamfighting in victories
March 19, 2018
Ssumday scored a combined KDA of 4/1/16 over 100 Thieves' back-to-back victories over Echo Fox on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday's Cho'Gath handled the early gank pressure well, managing to escape any harm without dying while keeping his CS close to Huni's Gnar. By the time Ssumday joined up with the rest of the team for skirmishes, he was well on his way to being a massive frontline damage threat that would eventually help 100 Thieves take over the game. In the tiebreaker game, Ssumday delivered a superb performance on Ornn as he finished with a 3/0/9 KDA. He grouped up early and often for skirmishes, assisting in 100 Thieves first three kills as well as securing first Turret gold. Most of the fights involved Ssumday teleporting into the fray, helping 100 Thieves turn Echo Fox's engages against it. It didn't take 100 Thieves nearly as long as it did in their first game of the day to take full control as pushed to destroy the Nexus in just under 27 minutes.
Fell victim to early ganks, couldn't recover
March 4, 2018
Ssumday scored a 0/4/0 KDA on Sion as 100 Thieves lost to Team Liquid on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday struggled on Sion against Shen and after dying to multiple ganks, there was little hope of him being able to do much in the split push. He didn't use Sion's combo well, oftentimes missing the crowd control besides Unstoppable Onslaught. The skill shot misses really hurt later as Ssumday and Ryu lost to Impact in a 2-vs-1 because of it. 100 Thieves' couldn't come back from its massive gold deficit and only managed one kill in the 31-minute loss.
Helps secure the lead for 100 Thieves
February 26, 2018
Ssumday went 1/0/8 in 100 Thieves' Sunday win over FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday's Gnar wasn't overly active in the early game, but he entered the game in a big way just shy of 21 minutes. When FlyQuest attempted to collapse on Ryu, it was Ssumday's Flash into two-man GNAR!!! that made it an easy fight victory for 100 Thieves. This also granted 100 Thieves the Baron buff, elevating their lead from minor to significant. He was solid in the remainder of the game's engagements as well, remaining deathless despite being on the frontline.
Comes through when it counts
February 19, 2018
Ssumday's KDA read 1/4/8 at the end of 100 Thieves' Sunday win over CLG.
ANALYSIS
On Sion up against Darshan's Gnar, Ssumday predictably fell behind in CS during the laning phase, and only more so after he was ganked for first blood. However, he did still did his job valiantly in this game. In teamfights, he consistently landed his area-of-effect crowd control onto multiple targets, and though he took a handful of deaths, it was only so his carries didn't have to. In the final teamfight, his four-man Decimating Smash helped secure the win for 100 Thieves.
Fails to make an impact in loss
February 18, 2018
Ssumday tallied just a 0/2/6 KDA in 100 Thieves' loss to Echo Fox on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Playing on Gnar, Ssumday had a bit of trouble throughout most of the game. While he was gifted a lead in lane early on by virtue of Ryu coming up to take down Huni for first blood, Ssumday never managed to build on that at all. He found himself caught out for a couple times to set his team back. As the game progressed, Echo Fox simply teamfought too well for anyone on 100 Thieves to really contend with.
Muddled performance in loss
February 12, 2018
Ssumday finished Sunday's loss to the Golden Guardians with a 1/1/1 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Playing on Ornn, Ssumday simply didn't have much at all to do in this game. Most of the action was happening in other parts of the map, which just left him idling up in the top lane. Even once the late game hit and some teamfights started to break out, Ssumday didn't have much to do with the proceedings and ended up without much contribution in the surprising loss to the previously winless Guardians.
Holds his own in victory over CG
February 5, 2018
Ssumday earned a 0/2/7 KDA on Gnar during his team's victory over CG.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday was instrumental to his team's victory during a jaw-dropping comeback performance against CG. After falling behind early, he did not give up, continuing to scale up and farm critical items. The efforts paid off in the seemingly lost game, allowing him to delay things long enough for his team to comeback through objectives. After building up several buffs for the team with dragons and barons, Ssumday was able to help initiate the game-changing teamfight, picking up several kills with his team to allow 100 Thieves to push into the enemy base and claim a 48-minute victory.
Falls behind early in top lane
January 28, 2018
Ssumday limped his way to a 2/2/3 KDA on Gnar in 100 Thieves' loss to Cloud9 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Up against Licorice in this game, one would think that Ssumday could have taken this lane. After an early death just a few minutes in, however, it was all downhill for him and the rest of 100 Thieves. His use of Mega Gnar almost always fell flat as he struggled to make any impact whatsoever from start to finish. While Ssumday and 100 Thieves may have looked good in other matches, it looked as though they simply crumbled during this one and will have some things to work on going into Week 3.
Likely joining 100 Thieves
November 22, 2017
Ssumday is expected to join 100 Thieves in the coming days, ESPN's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday certainly didn't wallow in free agency for long, as the former Team Dignitas top laner only announced his availability a day prior. While it's not necessarily a formality, 100 Thieves appear to be building the rest of their roster with available North American talent, hinting that Ssumday is expected to occupy the team's second import slot, having signed Ryu to open free agency.
Free agent for Season 8
November 21, 2017
Ssumday announced Tuesday that he is a free agent for 2018.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday spent the past season on Team Dignitas. While he has always been better in carry/top laner metas, Ssumday still was a top performer throughout the 2017 campaign. During his time in Korea on KT Rolster, he was heralded as a top player as well. He provided no indication where he will go, but he will most likely remain in North America or return to Korea.
Lackluster performance even on comfort picks
September 13, 2017
Ssumday earned a series KDA of 7/5/6 throughout his team's 0-3 defeat against FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
Although Ssumday was given carry champions in his team's series against FlyQuest, he struggled to get things going in every game but the second. Falling behind early and being given limited resources in both Game 1 and Game 3, he was unable to ever recover, fending for himself and neglecting the rest of his team. As a result, both games saw quick defeats for Dignitas. Game 2 went better for Ssumday who found himself ahead early on with Renekton, though he could not translate his lead to the rest of the team. Though he could pick up advantages for himself, the lack of team coordination cost Dignitas, allowing FlyQuest to pick up the victory. Although he had a single decent performance, Ssumday's poor showing resulted in his team losing the series 0-3 and being eliminated from World's contention.
Not at his best
September 5, 2017
Ssumday finished Saturday's sweep to CLG with a 7/10/13 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday used Shen in Game 1 to finish with a 1/3/6 KDA. He was involved in all but one DIG kill, finishing with the third-highest kill total and most assists on the team. Ssumday used Jarvan IV in the final two games, finishing the series with a combined 6/7/7 KDA. In Game 2 he finished with a 0/3/3 KDA. He was involved in all three kills for DIG, leading the team in assists for the second time. In Game 3, Ssumday earned a 6/4/4 KDA. He was involved in ten of eleven kills, leading DIG in kills in the final game of the series.
Solid on Jarvan to close out series
August 7, 2017
Ssumday scored an 8/2/25 KDA in Team Dignitas series victory against Team Liquid on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday's Shen held its own in lane against Lourlo Poppy's. While the top lane match up wasn't very exciting, Ssumday started to rack up assists in teamfights. He often managed to teleport all over the map at key moments with Stand United and teleport. For the rest of the series, Ssumday put together stellar performances on Jarvan IV. While he good plays with Flag-and-drag as well as Cataclysm in Game 2 it wasn't enough to end the series. In Game 3, Ssumday made early teleport plays to push the tempo and gain advantages for DIG in other lanes. DIG cleanly executed its push throughout Game 3 as it finished off the series.
Led the charge on Kled in Game 3 victory
July 30, 2017
Ssumday posted a 13/4/16 KDA in Team Dignitas' 2-1 series victory against Immortals on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday had a solid Game 1 performance on Gnar as he cruised through the laning phase with a CS lead. He got caught out of position in the mid game, but was an absolute terror late as DIG sieged through IMT's turrets to victory. Teamfights late were dominated by Ssumday's Gnar as he carried in damage dealt to champions, earning a 5/1/7 KDA and 100 percent kill participation. In Game 2 Ssumday didn't have the same impact on Jarvan IV as he wasn't a split push threat and couldn't do much in teamfights. Ssumday finished with a lowly 0/2/4 KDA as IMT evened up the series. In Game 3 Ssumday was put on Kled and put together a dominant 8/1/5 KDA performance. Ssumday slowly built a CS lead in lane and then started to roam from lane, picking up kills during the mid game. After becoming a tanky nuisance, Ssumday managed to Chaaaaaaaarge!!! his way into winning engages for DIG and there was little IMT could do to stop him.
Plays well despite getting picked on
July 25, 2017
Ssumday finished with a 6/9/14 KDA in Dignitas' 1-2 loss to CLoud9 Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday was an assist machine in Game 1 on Maokai, starting with the pair he grabbed with a Teleport to the game's early bot-lane skirmish. From there, his only job was to frontline and create kills for his Jayce and Tristana, which he did admirably en route to a 0/2/10. He struggled much more in Game 2 on Cho'Gath, as he was ganked twice early on and was unable to recover. In Game 3 on Shen, however, Ssumday continued playing well even after falling behind. The initial 2-for-4 trade DIG took in the river early on left him 1/1/0 against a 2/0/2 Impact on Jarvan IV and down in CS as well. C9 tried to push its advantage with a gank onto Ssumday, but Ssumday's quick mechanics were enough to turn it into a 1-for-1 trade. Ssumday went on to have some clutch Stand Uniteds, but they weren't enough to stop Cloud9.
