Team Roster

Top Laner – Hanabi (Chia-Hsiang Su)

This player has some standard rankings in 2019’s Mid-Season Invitational (MSI), beginning with a Kill Death Assist (KDA) Ratio of 3.9 which puts him at the #20 spot. His Kill Participation is currently valued at 59%, and his Creep Score (CS) per minute is 8.6, leaving him one place short of the Top 15.

His most-played champion is Akali, with whom he’s won 3/5 matches (5.1 KDA). His secondary champion, Kennen, has the highest KDA at 6.7 but—like his third choice, Ryze—Hanabi has won half or less of his matches played with this champion. Hanabi isn’t an outstanding player, but he is certainly not the weak-link of the team.

 

Jungler – Bugi (Seong-Yeop Lee)

Although his KDA (3.7) and CS per minute (4.9) aren’t very high for MSI 2019, his redeeming statistic is his Kill Participation: 74%. This places Bugi at the #7 spot and reflects how involved a Jungler should be at the competitive level.

His main champion is Xin Zhao; out of the 5 matches he’s played with this champion, only 3 were wins, which isn’t too surprising given his 3.5 KDA. With his secondary, Rek’Sai, he’s won 2/4 matches with a 6.0 KDA. Bugi’s third champion is his worst: 3 matches played, 0 of them won, a KDA of 2.8. Strategically, he should refrain from using his third champion, Jarvan IV, in the games to come, but it’ll be interesting to see if the coaches think he is still worth picking and it’ll be even more interesting to see if Bugi can turn things around with that champion.

Mid Laner – Rather (Hyeongseop Shin)

Rather has some decent statistics, each earning him a spot in the top 20. His KDA Ratio is 3.9, he’s pulling a CS per minute of 8.6, and his Kill Participation is 70%, #13 in MSI 2019.

Out of the 5 games played using Sylas, his main champion, Rather has won 3 and currently stands with a 5.4 KDA. His secondary, Orianna, he’s played 4 matches with—poorly: Flash Wolves lost 3/4 matches when Rather picked his secondary, with only a 2.3 KDA to boot. With his third champion, Rumble, Rather has played a single match and lost. The poor versatility of this player may be a limiting factor in the matches to come, but he is the current MVP.

AD Carry – Betty (Yu-Hung Lu)

Betty holds the #9 spot for both KDA Ratio (4.8) and CS per minute (9.3), which shows how much he brings to Flash Wolves. His Kill Participation is 69%. With two spots in different Top 10s, and in a Top 20, this player has reliable skill that very likely will be worth watching in the matches to come.

Flash Wolves’ ADC plays mainly as the champion Kai’Sa, with whom he’s sported a KDA of 4.2 despite only 1/5 matches ending in victory. Ezreal, Betty’s secondary champion, has won the second least amount of matches (1/3) but kept a high 9.0 KDA. His third champion, Varus, he has picked for 3 matches, 2 of which were won, with a 3.7 KDA.

 

Support – ShiauC (Jia-Hao Liu)

This player has a KDA Ratio of 3.0, but a low 2.0 CS per minute, which could potentially mean danger for the Flash Wolves in the upcoming matches. That said, ShiauC does sit in the Top 20 for Kill Participation at 70%.

ShiauC has mainly picked Nautilus for his champion (3.0 KDA), but his performance has been better with his secondary, Tahm Kench, with whom he’s won 3/4 matches with a 3.4 KDA. However, his third champion, Galio, has done ShiauC no favors: 0/3 matches won, 1.8 KDA. It’ll be interesting to see if this player picks his solid secondary more than his main in the future; that could be what he needs to improve his and the team’s performance.

 

Jungler – Enso (En-Shuo Liang)

A new member of the team, Enso joined on February 20 and first played in March. He has played for the Flash Wolves in both LMS 2019 Spring and LMS 2019 Spring Playoffs as a second Jungler with Bugi.

I'm a Creative Writing-Psychology double major at Butler University, Class of 2021. My closest friends are the leaders of Butler's eSports Team, so I've become very interested in the subject and I'm excited to get involved in it myself. A lover of video games and writing, working with Lineups is the perfect opportunity for me to coalesce these two passions of mine and gain experience writing professionally.
