Solid numbers in series loss
September 12, 2017
4/12/30 was aphromoo's overall KDA at the end of CLG's 3-1 loss to Cloud9 Sunday.
ANALYSIS
aphromoo started off with a quiet 0/1/2 game on Thresh, which was honestly pretty good considering how savagely CLG were beaten. He stuck with Alistar for the rest of the series and was extremely hit or miss. He looked very strong in Game 3, as CLG accumulated a lead and he was free to engage as hard as he wanted, but in the Game 2 and 4 losses, he was highly unimpressive. He botched several engages, including one in Game 4 that might have turned the tide of the game for his team. Overall, this was not what is expected of the veteran support, and as a result, he will not be making another trip to Worlds this year.
Outshined by Sneaky
September 12, 2017
Stixxay's overall KDA read 15/11/12 by the end of CLG's 3-1 loss to Cloud9 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Stixxay's Game 1 on Caitlyn and Game 2 on Xayah were extremely underwhelming, which was problematic, as Sneaky was having the best series of his whole season on Tristana. As such, Stixxay took the pick for himself in Games 3 and 4. This allowed CLG to take Game 4, as their triple frontline and mid Orianna provided Stixxay with the ideal teamfighting setup. In Game 4, Stixxay did his absolute best to carry CLG in the late game, as he buffered his Rocket Jumps perfectly to dodge multiple Shockwaves as well as other abilities, but he ultimately fell short.
Can't quite compete with Jensen
September 12, 2017
Huhi went an overall 14/12/18 in CLG's 3-1 loss to Cloud9 Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Huhi started the series out roughly on Orianna, as he was ganked early on by Impact's Maokai to give up CLG's first death to Jensen's Syndra. From there, CLG were largely run over, leading to a 0/3/1 finish for Huhi. His Game 2 Viktor was a huge step up, however, as he was easily CLG's best performer despite Darshan attaining a large early advantage. It's a shame for Huhi that CLG lost Game 2 due to huge performances out of C9's bot lane. Huhi returned to Orianna for Game 3, and looked much better this time around, largely thanks to a having three diving initiators and one hypercarry for a total of four viable shield targets. However, despite a couple of standout moments, Huhi's Game 4 on Taliyah was rather lackluster, and some of his Weaver's Walls were confusingly aimed or timed.
Steps up just to be let down
September 12, 2017
5/11/27 was OmarGod's overall scoreline by the end of CLG's 3-1 Sunday loss to Cloud9.
ANALYSIS
After a relatively quiet regular season, having come in as a sub originally, OmarGod stepped up in a big way in the gauntlet, specifically in the finals against Cloud9. He participated in three out of four first bloods in the series, including one onto his counterpart Contractz in Game 1. However, while he easily outperformed his opponent in the early game, OmarGod's initiations weren't the strongest, despite the fact that he was on tank junglers the whole time. Still, his early game pressure was a serious advantage for CLG in this series and one that they sadly failed to capitalize on.
Lackluster on tanks
September 12, 2017
5/13/18 was Darshan's overall KDA in CLG's 3-1 loss to Cloud9 Sunday.
ANALYSIS
This series saw Darshan return to his roots, which is to say, he excelled as a split-pusher but struggled on more teamfight-oriented picks. Even on Gnar in Game 1, a champion capable of both playstyles, Darshan couldn't make much of an impact despite getting first blood at level 1. Game 2 was by far Darshan's best of the series, as his Jax took an early CS lead before grabbing an assist on first blood. From there, he was able to scale hard enough to kill Impact's Shen in the 1-vs-1 split-push, but not hard enough to take the game for CLG. Darshan went over to Maokai for Game 3, and although he didn't necessarily look bad, Impact's Shen still outfarmed and generally outperformed him, despite CLG taking the game. Finally, on Shen for Game 4, Darshan struggled mightily to stay alive on the frontline and ended with a sorry 0/5/7 KDA despite the game being close.
