Cloud9
Likely to explore free agency
November 16, 2017
Impact will reportedly explore his options in free agency, reports Jacob Wolf of ESPN.
ANALYSIS
With his contract set to expire on Monday, Nov. 20, it looks as though Impact will see what his options are before considering re-signing with the team for the 2018 season. The team is willing to match any offers that the player receives, but there is no telling whether he will want to stay with the organization. To prepare for his possible departure, Cloud9 has bought out the contract of Licorice from eUnited. WIth the special transfer window for players on teams that were not given franchise membership set to open on Tuesday, Nov. 21, the offseason is set to heat up sooner rather than later.
Comes up short in top lane
October 15, 2017
Impact tallied a 2/2/5 KDA in Cloud9's loss to SKT on Sunday at the 2017 World Championship.
ANALYSIS
Impact took Maokai as his champion into the Jayce of Huni, and it wasn't very pretty. While he found a couple nice plays with a teleport in the mid game, his play in lane left a bit to be desired. He simply was unable to do much against Huni, who even came away with a solo kill on Impact. Cloud9 ended up qualifying for the playoffs by the end of the night, but they will need a bit more from Impact in the knockout rounds if they want to advance.
Clutch Shen play
October 7, 2017
Impact ended C9's Saturday win over EDG with a 3/2/7 KDA as Shen.
ANALYSIS
Impact was able to live up to his namesake, making plays across the map utilizing Shen's universal presence throughout the game. He was involved in 10 of 12 C9 kills, finishing behind only Jensen in kills while tying for the second-highest assist total. Impact used Stand United to join fights and showed off impressive mechanics on Shen by using Flash and Shadow Dash to taunt multiple members of EDG in teamfights.
Interesting tank pick
October 5, 2017
Impact finished C9's Thursday loss to SKT with a 1/2/3 KDA as Nautilus.
ANALYSIS
Impact's choice of Nautilus was an interesting one, but he did manage to participate in all but one C9 kill. He led the team in assists and finished with the second highest kill total. While the Nautilus pick does offer a lot of crowd-control, Impact wasn't especially dominate in lane or in teamfights as SKT ran through C9.
Wreaks havoc on enemy backline
September 24, 2017
Impact ended Cloud9's win over Dire Wolves with a 1/2/7 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Impact started off his game on Jarvan IV by setting up his wave to shove for a tower dive. This lent him a large CS advantage over Chippys' Cho'Gath, and once the top outer turret went down Impact transitioned into teamfights with the rest of Cloud9. He consistently used his advantage to dive into Dire Wolves' backline and dish out huge damage with Cataclysm, and while this resulted in him taking two of his team's three deaths, it was also very effective as initiation.
Uses Hero's Entrance effectively
September 23, 2017
Impact finished Saturday's win over Team oNe with a 2/0/6 KDA as Galio.
ANALYSIS
Impact was involved in eight of his team's 13 kills in the win, finishing with both the third highest kill and assist total on the team. Impact utilized Galio's Hero's Entrance to pair well with C9's dive in teamfights, arriving to fights and providing plenty of crowd-control in the unkillable performance.
Impressive initiations
September 12, 2017
Impact went an overall 2/9/35 in Cloud9's 3-1 Sunday win over CLG.
ANALYSIS
Impact was put it a bind right off the bat in this series, as the already rough matchup of Maokai into Gnar was exacerbated by Contractz giving up first blood to Darshan on a level 1 invade. However, while Impact's CS suffered slightly, he quickly made up for it with a roam to the mid lane to grab his team its first kill. From there on in, he participated in all but one C9 kill to end 1/0/10, helping his team to a stomp with fantastic initiations. Unfortunately, his Shen couldn't even remotely stand up to Darshan's Jax in Game 2, as he quickly fell behind in farm before being ganked for first blood, and he went on to die in the split-push as the game went on. However, he recovered well and had a much better performance on Shen in Game 3. Despite the fact that Impact played better than Darshan by just about every measure this game, however, C9 still took their only loss of the series. Finally, with Maokai and Shen both taken by CLG in Game 4, Impact made the switch to Galio, and continued to have a powerful frontline presence. He also did a great job of peeling for his backline, helping keep Sneaky deathless on Xayah despite the closeness of the game.
Steps up after quiet Game 1
August 7, 2017
Impact went 6/3/18 in Cloud9's 2-0 sweep over NV on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Impact's Galio finished with an impressive 1/1/10 KDA in Game 1, but ultimately this was mostly due to his team stomping, as he was probably the least impacful player on the team, though still solid. He more than made up for it in Game 2, however, as his Gnar heavily chunked out Seraph's Galio just before the start of laning phase, and followed it up with a solo kill. The huge lead he built eventually made him a target for NV, but he still finished 5/2/8 in the win.
Doesn't live up to his name
July 31, 2017
Impact went 4/4/11 overall at the end of Cloud9's 2-0 Sunday sweep over FlyQuest.
ANALYSIS
Impact struggled early on in Game 1 on Kled, giving up a couple of early deaths after taking some silly fights. He was useful in teamfights due to his ultimate, but otherwise wasn't good for all that much. In Game 2, Impact didn't have any careless deaths, but also, ironically, simply had no impact on the game. He fell behind in farm and remained 0/0/0 until nearly 20 minutes into the sub-24-minute game, when Cloud9 was already up 12 kills and 8,000 gold.
Bounces back beautifully
July 25, 2017
Impact went 10/8/26 in Cloud9's Sunday win over Dignitas.
ANALYSIS
This series started out roughly for Impact and Cloud9. On Galio, Impact Teleported to the bot lane for an early skirmish, but then fight went 1-for-3 in favor of DIG. After that, Impact never even got a chance to finish an armor item, leaving him vulnerable to the Jayce and Tristana of DIG in the loss. In the next game, however, Impact was on Shen, and looked much better. He participated in all five of Cloud9's kills before 20 minutes, and scaled into a virtually unkillable tank, going 6/1/11 in the win. Finally, Game 3 saw him on Jarvan IV. Impact was big in the first fight of the game, going 2/0/2 on the 4-for-2 trade. From there, his initiations helped Cloud9 to an easy win, though he did have the most deaths on his team at three.
Shines on Maokai in series victory
July 22, 2017
Impact posted a 2/8/31 KDA in Cloud9's 2-1 series victory against Phoenix1 on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Impact had solid performances on Maokai throughout the series and it started with a 1/2/7 KDA performance in Game 1. Impact got gank help to make the laning phase a little easier for him against Cho'Gath. He drew all of P1's attention, getting it to waste a lot of resources for a single kill, while the rest of C9 took objectives on the other side of the Rift. C9 quickly finished off Game 1 after nearly acing P1. In Game 2 Impact was on Shen, but couldn't transition its early lead into a victory and finished with a 1/5/9 KDA. C9 needed to keep a fast pace in order to avoid going up against P1's terrifying late game team composition but one misstep in the mid game cost it Game 2. In Game 3 Impact returned to Maokai and continued to make good engages for C9. Impact's Twisted Advance helped lock down good targets for the rest of C9 to finish off. While Impact didn't secure any kills, he more than made up for it as he earned a 0/1/15 KDA.
Solid teamfighting in victory
July 8, 2017
Impact scored a 2/4/5 KDA in Cloud9's victory against Fnatic on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The top lane matchup went smoothly for Impact's Jarvan IV as he bullied and ran up a CS lead. C9 rotated into the top lane early to lane swap secured turret, kills, and Rift Herald. Impact coordinated teamfights well with his teammates as C9 dominated early teamfights. He sacrificed himself a few times later, but often still got an assist with it. In the final push, he was taken down early, but wasn't needed to finish off the Nexus.
Plays better with his team than recently
July 6, 2017
Impact posted a 3/2/4 KDA in Cloud9's 0-1 loss to G2 Esports' on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Impact played a game of Kled into Renekton. He laned well, preventing the Renekton from bullying heavily in lane and eventually dominating the game. Impact often tried to bring his team into teamfights with his ultimate, but C9 seemed to have miscommunication here and there, preventing full-team initiations from taking place. Impact played far better with C9 than he has recently, so that's a good sign for things to come.
Struggles in Game 1 defeat against CLG
July 3, 2017
Impacted earned a 1/7/4 KDA on Rumble against CLG.
ANALYSIS
Starting off Cloud9's series, Impact struggled massively in the first game. Picking Rumble, he found himself dying early and dying often. Although the rest of his team was able to hold their own, Impact found himself dying early and dying often. After giving up first blood, he found himself getting focused heavily and dying repeatedly. As a result of his deaths, CLG was able to convincingly take a lead that Cloud9 was unable to recover from. Due to his poor performance in the game, Cloud9 subbed Impact out for the remainder of the series.
Minimal impact leads to benching
July 1, 2017
Impact was unable to give his team many advantages in Game 1 of Cloud9's eventual 2-1 victory over TSM on Friday, finishing with a just a 1/1/2 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Impact was on Renekton in this game, but failed to live up to his namesake in the loss. While he tag-teamed well with his jungler for the first blood, it was all downhill from there. As TSM teamfought their way to victory, Impact was unable to use his champion to get many advantages. While most of his team was getting pushed around in the loss, the team still didn't feel comfortable with his performance, and he was subbed out.
